• 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.

    Atlanta Hawks @ Orlando Magic

    Game Time: 7:00 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Hawks: OUT: Justin Holiday (health and safety); DOUBTFUL: Bogdan Bogdanovic (right knee recovery), Jalen Johnson (right ankle soreness); QUESTIONABLE: De’Andre Hunter (right hip flexor soreness)

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

    Stream of the Game

    The potential return of Bogdanović on Wednesday is the most interesting thing of note for the Hawks as it would mark his season debut. This would negatively impact the opportunity for rookie AJ Griffin, although De’Andre Hunter’s return already significantly impacted his minutes. If both Hunter and Bogdanović are ruled out, Griffin would have some low-end 3-and-D streaming appeal in shallow leagues. On the Magic’s side of things, Bamba would be the best streaming option if he is able to suit up. Markelle Fultz is an interesting player to monitor in shallow formats in search of assists as there are few players that can be found on the wire that can make a positive impact in that category. However, he will most definitely be eased in slowly since he’s coming off a lower body injury, so expectations should be tempered out of the gate for those in roto games cap leagues.

    Philadelphia 76ers @ Cleveland Cavaliers

    Game Time: 7:00 pm ET

    76ers: OUT: James Harden (right foot tendon strain), Tyrese Maxey (left foot fracture), Jaden Springer (right quad strain)

    Stream of the Game

    Shake Milton and De’Anthony Melton continue to be attractive streaming options while Maxey and Harden remain sidelined, while Dean Wade and Cedi Osman continue to be low-end streaming options for deep-league managers.
