Noah Brown HOU WR
Texans' Noah Brown: Expected to suit up Sunday15m ago
League sources indicate that Brown (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 14 contest versus the Jets, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
Brown returned from a two-game absence to log 79 percent of Houston's offensive snaps in last Sunday's win against Denver, though he didn't catch either of his two targets in that contest. The veteran wideout then logged a limited followed by a full practice session to begin Week 14 prep before sitting out Friday completely. Despite that DNP, Brown appears set to take the field Sunday against New York, and he could see an increase in targets with Tank Dell out for the season due to a broken left fibula.
Christian Wilkins MIA DT
Dolphins' Christian Wilkins: Ready for Monday night3h ago
Wilkins (groin) has no injury designation ahead of Monday night's game against the Titans, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.
The 27-year-old was added to Miami's injury report Friday, but after a full practice session Saturday, it seems as if he's been able to move past his groin issue. Wilkins has been an integral part of the Dolphins' defense since entering the league in 2019, and he's logged 46 total tackles, including eight tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks through 12 games this season.
Durham Smythe MIA TE
Dolphins' Durham Smythe: Cleared for Monday3h ago
Smythe (ankle) does not carry an injury designation and is cleared to play Monday against the Titans, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports
After not practicing Thursday, Smythe was able to participate both of the following days which has cleared him for Week 14. The 28-year-old is the top tight end on his team but has been limited to 18 catches for 178 yards and zero touchdowns on the year as he serves mostly as a blocker on a team with dynamic receivers that get the bulk of the targets.
Jakob Johnson LV RB
Raiders' Jakob Johnson: Moves to roster3h ago
Johnson was elevated from the practice squad Saturday by the Raiders.
Johnson last saw the field Week 8, and has only recorded a single reception for 12 yards on the season. It is unlikely the fullback will be utilized as anything more than a special teams piece this week.
Raheem Mostert MIA RB
Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Ready to play Monday3h ago
Mostert (knee) does not carry an injury designation into Monday's matchup against the Giants, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.
The Dolphins limited the practice reps of Mostert and Tyreek Hill (ankle) all week, but neither seemed in much danger of missing Monday's primetime contest. While De'Von Achane has been a perfect tandem for Mostert this season, the veteran running back has compiled a commanding lead in playing time when games have been competitive. Unfortunately for fantasy managers given the Titans' formidable run defense, it's possible Mostert could put together another ho-hum day before the offensive wizardry of Tua Tagovailoa and company put the score out of reach, thus giving way to more opportunities for Achane.
Jevon Holland MIA FS
Dolphins' Jevon Holland: Chance to suit up Monday3h ago
Holland (knee) is questionable for Monday's game against the Titans, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Holland injured his knee in Week 12 against the Jets and was forced to miss last Sunday's contest against the Commanders. He started the week with a DNP, but logged back-to-back limited practice sessions to give himself a chance of returning to action Monday. If Holland is unable to play, Brandon Jones will continue to serve as the starting free safety alongside DeShon Elliott.
Max Stassi LAA C
White Sox's Max Stassi: Rerouted to White Sox2h ago
Atlanta traded Stassi (hip/personal) and cash considerations to the White Sox on Saturday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash.
Stassi was traded from the Angels to Atlanta on Friday, but it was assumed Atlanta would quickly send Stassi elsewhere given the presence of Sean Murphy and Travis d'Arnaud. Stassi slashed .180/.267/.303 in 375 plate appearances in 2022, and he failed to appear in a game last season due to a hip injury and a serious family medical issue. Stassi's extended time away from baseball means he will have to compete for a spot on the White Sox's Opening Day roster, but a weak catcher room in Chicago keeps him in the running for the starting job.
Taylor Hearn KC RP
Taylor Hearn: Heading overseas2h ago
Hearn signed with the NPB's Hiroshima Carp on Saturday.
Hearn logged a hefty 11.40 ERA and 2.07 WHIP across 15 innings between Atlanta, Kansas City and Texas last season. His numbers improved to a 3.33 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in Triple-A, but he'll opt to play in Japan rather than wait for a minor-league offer from an MLB team.
Shohei Ohtani LAA DH
Dodgers' Shohei Ohtani: Signing with Dodgers5h ago
Ohtani (elbow) announced Saturday via his personal Instagram account that he will be signing with the Dodgers.
The Blue Jays were rumored to be the front-runners for Ohtani's services, but the two-way superstar will instead swap Los Angeles teams on a monstrous 10-year, $700 million deal. Ohtani underwent elbow surgery in September that will prevent him from pitching next season, but he immediately becomes arguably the biggest offensive threat in a lineup that also features Freddie Freeman and Mookie Betts.
Nabil Crismatt ARI RP
Dodgers' Nabil Crismatt: Inks minors deal with Dodgers1d ago
Crismatt signed a minor-league contract Friday with the Dodgers, Michael Mayer of MetsmerizedOnline.com reports.
Crismatt was lit up for 13 runs -- 12 earned -- over 13 major-league innings with the Padres and Diamondbacks in 2023, but he held a solid 3.38 ERA and 144:47 K:BB in 157 big-league frames between 2020-22. Maybe the 28-year-old can get himself righted in the Dodgers' vaunted pitching system.
Evan White SEA 1B
Angels' Evan White: Flipped to Halos1d ago
The Angels acquired White (hip) and Tyler Thomas from Atlanta on Friday in exchange for Max Stassi (hip/personal) and David Fletcher, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
This is basically a swap of bad contracts, with White's maybe being the worst of them all. He hasn't appeared in a major-league game since 2021 and holds a career .544 OPS in 306 plate appearances at baseball's highest level. On top of that, he is currently in recovery mode from May hip surgery. The 27-year-old former top prospect is due $15 million guaranteed between 2024-25 and carries a total of $4 million in buyouts on his club options for 2026, 2027 and 2028.
Max Stassi LAA C
Braves' Max Stassi: Dealt to Atlanta1d ago
Atlanta acquired Stassi (hip/personal) and David Fletcher from the Angels on Friday in exchange for Evan White (hip) and Tyler Thomas, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The reigning NL East champs are already set at catcher with Sean Murphy and Travis d'Arnaud, so Stassi could quickly be flipped to another team -- assuming he's ready to resume his playing career. The 32-year-old did not appear in a game at any level in 2023 after suffering a hip injury late in spring training and then having to deal with a serious family medical issue.
Jarred Vanderbilt LAL PF
Lakers' Jarred Vanderbilt: Available for Saturday14m ago
Vanderbilt (heel) is good to go for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Khobi Price of The Orange County Register reports.
Vanderbilt will play through a probable tag for the second straight game. In three appearances for the Lakers this season, Vanderbilt holds averages of 1.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
Anthony Davis LAL PF
Lakers' Anthony Davis: Good to go18m ago
Davis (groin/hip) is available for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
As is usually the case, Davis was carrying a probable tag into Saturday's contest prior to this update. He has no restrictions to speak of and will be a full go for the In-Season Tournament Finale. Davis will be matched up against Myles Turner on Saturday evening.
LeBron James LAL SF
Lakers' LeBron James: Available to play19m ago
James (calf) has been upgraded to available to face the Pacers on Saturday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
James usually carries questionable tags into games, but the Lakers threw a probable tag on him prior to this update. As has been the case for weeks, James will not have any restrictions for the In-Season Tournament Finale.
Andrew Nembhard IND PG
Pacers' Andrew Nembhard: Out at least one week1h ago
Nembhard (knee) will be re-evaluated in one week, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Coach Rick Carlisle doesn't believe Nembhard is dealing with a long-term injury, but it sounds like the Pacers will be taking a cautious approach with the franchise calling him week-to-week. Nembhard will miss at least the next five games for the Pacers, and he should be considered questionable at best for Dec. 18 against the Clippers. T.J. McConnell is expected to pick up some minutes in the meantime.
Kyrie Irving DAL PG
Mavericks' Kyrie Irving: Diagnosed with heel contusion2h ago
Irving has been diagnosed with a right heel contusion, but he doesn't have a timetable to return yet.
NBA writer Marc Stein reported that Irving won't travel to Memphis for Monday's game against Dallas, but we won't know his status for Tuesday's home game against the Lakers until he's further evaluated. By all accounts, Irving has avoided a serious injury and has already begun treatment. In the short term, the Mavericks will likely turn to Dante Exum, Seth Curry and Tim Hardaway to pick up some minutes.
Jordan Goodwin PHO SG
Suns' Jordan Goodwin: Sees 20 minutes in loss2h ago
Goodwin totaled eight points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and six assists over 20 minutes during Friday's 114-106 loss to the Kings.
The Suns were missing Kevin Durant (ankle) and Grayson Allen (groin) Friday, and their status for Tuesday's game against the Warriors is in the air. Goodwin's production has been all over the place this season, but he stepped up for the second unit Friday and may be asked to do the same if the Suns are shorthanded against Golden State.
Tanner Pearson MON LW
Canadiens' Tanner Pearson: Exits with upper-body injury18m ago
Pearson (upper body) won't return to Saturday's game versus the Sabres.
Pearson logged 2:50 of ice in the contest and added one blocked shot during the first period. The winger's injury leaves his availability in doubt for Sunday's game versus the Predators. If he can't play, Michael Pezzetta will likely draw into the lineup in a bottom-six role.
Yegor Sharangovich CGY C
Flames' Yegor Sharangovich: Collects shorthanded goal19m ago
Sharangovich netted a shorthanded goal in a 4-2 loss to New Jersey on Saturday.
Sharangovich has six goals and 13 points in 27 outings this campaign. He's been noteworthy shorthanded with two goals and an assist. To put that into context, just one player, Simon Holmstrom, has more shorthanded points in 2023-24. Unfortunately, Sharangovich hasn't contributed on the power play, though he did enter Saturday's action averaging an okay 1:23 of ice time with the man advantage.
Nazem Kadri CGY C
Flames' Nazem Kadri: Point streak reaches three games22m ago
Kadri contributed a goal in a 4-2 loss to New Jersey on Saturday.
Kadri extended his scoring streak to three games and has been held off the scoresheet just once over his past six contests. He's up to two goals and five points over that six-game stretch. Kadri's having a fine season overall, supplying six markers and 18 points through 27 outings. That puts him on pace to roughly match his 2022-23 finish of 56 points in 82 appearances.
Alexander Holtz NJ RW
Devils' Alexander Holtz: Scores goal in win over Flames25m ago
Holtz provided a goal in a 4-2 win over Calgary on Saturday.
Holtz has eight markers and 12 points in 25 contests this season. His goals have mostly come in bunches this campaign with him collecting three over five appearances from Oct. 24-Nov. 2 and another three over four games from Nov. 24-30. Perhaps his latest goal will serve as the beginning of a similar stretch.
Nico Hischier NJ C
Devils' Nico Hischier: Nets two goals Saturday28m ago
Hischier supplied two goals in a 4-2 victory over Calgary on Saturday.
Hischier provided the Devils' first marker of the contest early in the second period while his second tally came on an empty net to complete New Jersey's 4-2 win. It was Hischier's first multi-goal game and his third multi-point effort of the campaign. He's up to six goals and 11 points in 14 outings this season, including two markers and four points over his last three games.
Jesper Bratt NJ LW
Devils' Jesper Bratt: On four-game scoring streak31m ago
Bratt had a goal and an assist in the Devils' 4-2 victory over Calgary on Saturday.
Bratt found the back of the net midway through the second period to put New Jersey up 2-1. He's on a four-game scoring streak with three goals and six points over that stretch. Through 25 contests this campaign, Bratt has recorded 11 goals and 31 points.
