• Let’s get Week 8 off on the right foot for fantasy managers as we look at key injuries to monitor, streaming opportunities and bonus DFS content.

    Los Angeles Clippers @ Charlotte Hornets

    Game Time: 7:00 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Clippers: OUT: Norman Powell (left groin strain); QUESTIONABLE: Paul George (right hamstring tendon strain), Kawhi Leonard (right ankle sprain), Luke Kennard (right calf strain)

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

    Stream of the Game

    The Clippers’ potential streaming appeal will get wiped out if both PG13 and Kawhi return from their various injuries tonight. However, if only one returns, there should be some low-end streaming appeal for Terance Mann and Robert Covington. On the Hornets side of things, Jalen McDaniels continues to have streaming appeal across 12-team formats while the Hornets are without several starters while Theo Maledon is a low-end streaming PG option with Ball and DSJ still dealing with their ankle injuries.

    Milwaukee Bucks @ Orlando Magic

    Game Time: 7:00 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Bucks: OUT: Joe Ingles (left ACL), Serge Ibaka (illness), MarJon Beauchamp (illness); QUESTIONABLE: Brook Lopez (rest), Grayson Allen (right plantar fascia soreness); PROBABLE: Khris Middleton (conditioning)

    Magic: OUT: Wendell Carter Jr. (right plantar fascia strain), Jalen Suggs (right ankle soreness), Chuma Okeke (left knee soreness), Gary Harris (right hamstring strain), Jonathan Isaac (left knee); QUESTIONABLE: Mo Bamba (back spasms)

    Stream of the Game

    The Bucks are a stay-away squad with a real possibility that they have all five starters healthy with their full complement of key role players. The Magic, on the other hand, present some reasonable streaming appeal in the frontcourt with the ongoing injury to WCJ. Bamba would be the preferred streamer if he is able to return from his back injury, while Moe Wagner would be the next man up. However, the elder Wagner brother would only be worth a stream in 16-team leagues.

    Boston Celtics @ Toronto Raptors

    Game Time: 7:30 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Celtics: OUT: Al Horford (lower back stiffness), Robert Williams (left knee), Danilo Gallinari (left ACL); QUESTIONABLE: Malcolm Brogdon (illness)

    Raptors: OUT: Precious Achiuwa (right ankle sprain), Otto Porter (left toe dislocation); DOUBTFUL: Juancho Hernangómez (right ankle sprain)
