Gary Payton II is starting for Bucks on Wednesday

Milwaukee Bucks guard Gary Payton II is moving into the starting lineup on Wednesday with forward Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting out.

What It Means:

Payton will make his first start of the season, and with Matthew Dellavedova out as well, there is a chance that Payton could see meaningful minutes. However, he is a risky fantasy investment.

Our models project Payton for 7.8 FanDuel points at a cost of $3,000.

Marcus Morris (knee) says he will play Wednesday for Celtics

Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris (knee) says that he will play Wednesday against the Miami Heat.

What It Means:

Morris was questionable coming in to Wednesday with a sore knee, and even though he is not starting, he is planning on playing off the bench. There is a chance that his minutes will be monitored though. Aron Baynes is starting at power forward.

Our models project Morris for 20.2 FanDuel points at a cost of $4,800.

Ryan Anderson (illness) out for Rockets on Wednesday, P.J. Tucker filling void in first unit

Houston Rockets forward/center Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out on Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets.

What It Means:

Anderson was originally expected to play so he should have plenty of time to recover for Saturday's matchup with the New York Knicks. P.J. Tucker will replace Anderson in Houston's first unit tonight while Luc Mbah a Moute should see more minutes.

Anderson is averaging 21.6 FanDuel points in 17 games this season.
