• As the weather starts to get colder as we on the verge of December, the NBA is heating up and it’s time to preview a big Wednesday around the association.

    Washington Wizards @ Charlotte Hornets

    Game Time: 7:00 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Wizards: OUT: Delon Wright (right hamstring strain), Rui Hachimura (right ankle soreness)

    Hornets: OUT: LaMelo Ball (left ankle sprain), Gordon Hayward (left shoulder fracture), Cody Martin (left knee procedure), Dennis Smith Jr. (left ankle sprain)

    Stream of the Game

    Terry Rozier’s return negatively impacts the streaming appeal of Theo Maledon, but he should still see additional opportunity that should translate to deep-league streaming appeal while DSJ and Ball remain shelved. Jalen McDaniels also remains a low-end option with Hayward continuing to miss time. Deni Avdija remains your low-end streaming target on the Wizards side of the ledger.

    Denver Nuggets @ Atlanta Hawks

    Game Time: 7:30 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Nuggets: OUT: Michael Porter Jr. (left heel contusion), Collin Gillespie (right leg fracture); DOUBTFUL: Jeff Green (right knee contusion); PROBABLE: Jamal Murray (right quad contusion)

    Hawks: OUT: John Collins (left ankle sprain), De’Andre Hunter (right hip flexor strain), Justin Holiday (health and safety); QUESTIONABLE: Trae Young (right shoulder soreness), Clint Capela (left foot soreness), Bogdan Bogdanovic (right knee recovery), Jalen Johnson (right ankle soreness), Frank Kaminsky (right foot sprain)

    Stream of the Game

    The Bruce Brown stream continues in strong fashion, while we’ve seen some deep-league streaming appeal for Vlatko Čančar off the bench in recent games with Green and MPJ sidelined. On the Hawks, AJ Griffin is your 3-and-D streaming option with Onyeka Okongwu a must-stream option with Collins sidelined for the next two weeks in addition to Hunter’s absence. He’ll have even more appeal if Capela is ruled out, but remains one of the best streaming options ahead of Friday’s slate given the depleted frontcourt. Jarrett Culver is also coming off one of his best performances of his career and could be in the deep-league mix if he can continue to rebound (career-high 12 boards) as well as we saw during Wednesday’s blowout.

    Los Angeles Lakers @ Milwaukee Bucks

    Game Time: 7:30 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Lakers: OUT: Dennis Schröder (personal); PROBABLE: LeBron James (left adductor strain), Anthony Davis (low back tightness), Lonnie Walker IV (left foot soreness)

    Bucks: OUT: MarJon Beauchamp (illness), Joe Ingles (left ACL), Serge Ibaka (illness); PROBABLE: Khris Middleton (left wrist)
