Coach Peter DeBoer says that Brenden Dillon (upper body) is unlikely to play Saturday against Arizona, reports CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz.
The big defenseman will be missed by the team, but his fantasy value hasn't risen as many hoped it would in San Jose. He's averaging a career-low ice time of 16:25 and has put up just six points in 52 games.
Chad Jenkins was outrighted to Triple-A on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.
Jenkins cleared waivers after being DFA'd last Saturday. It's likely he will begin the 2016 season at Triple-A Buffalo.
Cameron Payne finished with four points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds and eight assists over 25 minutes during Thursday's win over the Pelicans.
Payne struggled offensively Thursday, shooting a woeful 29 percent from the field and missing all three of his three-point attempts. However, the eight assists notched a new season-high for the rookie and he received solid playing time with the Oklahoma City Thunder up by a bunch for the majority of the game. Payne has established himself as the top bench option behind Russell Westbrook at the point, but as long as Russell is healthy, Payne will be limited to minutes in the mid-to-high teens, while occasionally moving into the low-20's.
Coach Lindy Ruff said Friday that Travis Moen (lower body) could be out "for a little while," reports Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News.
With no goals and two assists through 18 games this season, Moen's fantasy value isn't particularly high as it stands. He's been scratched and marginalized for most of the season, averaging a career-low ice time of 7:48. There are better options than Moen on waivers or at a comparable price in daily.
Garrett Temple contributed three points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds, and two steals in 16 minutes of action in Thursday's loss to the Bucks.
Temple saw his minutes slashed on Thursday, seeing the least amount of action since Dec. 9. The 29-year-olds minutes may continue to decline after the All-Star break with Bradley Beal continuing to take on heavier workload as he returns to full strength after suffering a stress reaction in his right leg.
