There are a lot of GTDs early this morning. Click on the rotowire link again later for updates.
https://www.rotowire.com/basketball/nba-lineups.php

Of note, both Ersan and Favors are listed as TOSSUP grey --- Ersan with a hamstring problem and Favors with a knee problem. Gobert is also listed with a knee problem, but is LIKELY green. Azubuike is listed VERY LIKELY dark green.

On the guard line, Conley is listed with a knee problem, but is LIKELY green.

The Laker GTDs are all LIKELY green, but Davis and Lebron are still OUT.

It would be interesting to watch our 6-10, 280 lb bruiser, Doke, bang around inside with the Lakers' 6-10, 280 lb bruiser, Drummond, but I am guessing that Doke doesn't have enough NBA gametime experience to stay out of foul trouble playing against the vet.

I thought Azubuike was out for the season?

I don't know; I was going off the VERY LIKELY to play rating at Rotowire this morning, but this afternoon Rotowire has Doke listed OUT.

Pretty nice to have Conley and Gobert back. They are both +16 plus minus early in the third quarter. Conley already has nine assists.

Put Rudy on floor and Andre doesn't show up big tonight. Rudy's huge.

How did 27 other teams let him slide bye?
