Trenton Cannon NYJ RB
Jets' Trenton Cannon: Listed as questionable30m ago
Cannon (toe) is listed as questionable on the Jets' final Week 15 injury report.
Initially, it appeared as though Cannon would approach Saturday's contest against the Texans free of an injury designation, but a limited practice session Thursday has him listed as questionable. If Cannon is able to suit up this weekend, he'd be in line to work behind Elijah McGuire (ankle), with the Jets' top rusher Isaiah Crowell already ruled out.
Allen Robinson CHI WR
Bears' Allen Robinson: Puts in limited practice30m ago
Robinson (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The lone player on the Bears' Week 15 injury report, Robinson doesn't seem in any peril of sitting out Sunday in Green Bay. Coach Matt Nagy labeled Robinson's absence from Wednesday's practice as a maintenance day, and the wideout's involvement in Thursday's session has him trending in the right direction as the weekend approaches. During his Bears debut in the season opener against this same Packers squad, Robinson was targeted seven times, reeling in four of them for 61 yards.
Shelton Gibson PHI WR
Eagles' Shelton Gibson: Limited in practice31m ago
Gibson (wrist) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Gibson is managing a wrist injury of undisclosed severity, putting his status for Sunday's tilt against the Rams in Question. The second-year wideout has seen only target all season, so his tentative absence would be unlikely to have a large impact on Philadelphia's offense. If Gibson were to miss any time, Wendell Smallwood would slot in as the Eagles' top kick returner.
Erik Swoope NO TE
Erik Swoope: Released by New Orleans34m ago
Swoope was released by the Saints on Thursday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Swoope didn't last more than a day in New Orleans after being scooped off waivers Wednesday, so he'll become available to other squads once again this week. The tight end played in seven games with the Colts earlier this season, catching eight passes for 87 yards and three scores on 10 targets.
Elijah McGuire NYJ RB
Jets' Elijah McGuire: Not listed on injury report37m ago
Though previous reports suggested that McGuire (ankle) would be listed as questionable, the running back no longer carries an injury designation on the Jets' Week 15 injury report.
Meanwhile, the team's top rusher Isaiah Crowell (toe) is out this week and Trenton Cannon (toe) is listed as questionable. In that context, McGuire is a worthy Week 15 dart for those scrambling for backfield help.
Kyle Wilson LAC LB
Chargers' Kyle Wilson: Signs with Los Angeles39m ago
Wilson signed a contract with the Chargers on Thursday, Ricky Henne of the team's official site reports.
Wilson takes the spot of Trevor Williams (knee) on the Chargers' 53-man roster. The 6'0, 231-pound Arkansas State product played in one game with the Eagles this season, and will now work to carve out a depth role in Los Angeles.
Alex Dickerson SD LF
Padres' Alex Dickerson: Returns to San Diego1h ago
Dickerson (elbow) inked a minor-league deal with the Padres on Thursday.
Dickerson has spent the past few seasons within the Padres' system, though he failed to play in 2018 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in the spring. He should be fully operational for spring training as the 28-year-old aims to win a spot on the Opening Day roster. In 84 games with the big-league team in 2016, he slashed .257/.333/.455 with 10 home runs and 37 RBI.
Eduardo Paredes LAA RP
Tigers' Eduardo Paredes: Signs with Tigers2h ago
Paredes agreed to a minor-league deal with Detroit on Thursday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
The right-hander's contract also included an invite to the Tigers' big-league spring training. The 23-year-old spent most of the 2018 season at the Triple-A level, though he appeared in 32 games out of the bullpen for the Angels over the past two years. During those outings, he's logged a 5.53 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 40.2 innings.
Junior Guerra MIL RP
Brewers' Junior Guerra: Role still undetermined2h ago
General manager David Stearns said Guerra will enter spring training without a specific role, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "We think he's going to be an important member of our pitching staff next year," Stearns added.
Stearns said he didn't want to "pigeon hole" Guerra in as either a starter or reliever, as the veteran right-hander proved successful in both roles in 2018. Guerra posted a 4.09 ERA and 8.7 K/9 across 141 innings (31 appearances, 26 starts) with the Brewers last season and could be a candidate to fill a swingman role in 2019.
Christopher Smith WAS RP
Tigers' Chris Smith: Inks minor-league deal2h ago
Smith signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Thursday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.
Smith spent the entirety of the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level within the Nationals' system, logging a 3.93 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 65:21 K:BB across 55 innings of relief. He pitched in four big-league games for Toronto in 2017, but that's the extent of Smith's service in the majors. He will provide additional bullpen depth for Detroit heading into the spring.
Drew Jackson BAL SS
Orioles' Drew Jackson: Dealt to Orioles3h ago
The Phillies traded Jackson to Baltimore on Thursday in exchange for international bonus pool money, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.
Prior to be acquired by the Orioles, Jackson was selected with the 11th pick in Thursday's Rule 5 draft by Philadelphia. He spent the past year within the Dodgers' system at the Double-A level, hitting .251 with an .803 OPS, in addition to 15 home runs, 46 RBI and 22 stolen bases. He will provide a little extra middle infield depth for the Orioles, which the club desperately needs, so it shouldn't come as a significant surprise if the 25-year-old found his way on the Opening Day roster.
Chris Ellis KC SP
Royals' Chris Ellis: Traded to Kansas City3h ago
The Rangers traded Ellis to the Royals on Thursday immediately following the Rule 5 draft.
Ellis was picked seventh in the draft by the Rangers before getting flipped to Kansas City, likely in exchange for cash considerations. The 26-year-old spent a majority of the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level within the Cardinals' organization, logging a 3.76 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with a 7.7 K/9. Ellis has the ability to serve as a starting pitcher or multi-inning reliever for the Royals moving forward.
Spencer Dinwiddie BKN PG
Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Inks three-year extension4m ago
Dinwiddie has signed a three-year $34 million extension with the Nets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The third year is a player option.
This season marks Dinwiddie's third season with the Nets, and the team has been impressed enough to ink him for three more. He's averaging a career-high 16.9 points on 47.4 percent shooting from the field and 36.8 percent from three in 28.7 minutes. The guard is also chipping in 4.9 assists and 2.5 boards. Dinwiddie's role may not change much this season, but the uncertainty surrounding D'Angelo Russell's future with Brooklyn means Dinwiddie could see more responsibilities next year and beyond.
Allen Crabbe BKN SG
Nets' Allen Crabbe: Questionable for Friday24m ago
Crabbe is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards due to a sore right knee, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Crabbe has been playing some of his best basketball of the season lately and is coming off a 20-point performance in Wednesday's win over the 76ers, but it appears he has picked up an injury in the process. Look for another update on Crabbe's status to come following the team's shootaround Friday morning.
Jordan Loyd TOR PG
Raptors' Jordan Loyd: Scores 32 points in loss1h ago
Loyd scored 32 points (11-18 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) to go along with 11 assists, five rebounds and a blocked shot during the loss Wednesday to the Blue.
It's hard to fathom, but a 32-point, 11-assist outing was somehow overshadowed thanks to league-leading 47-point bomb dropped by center Chris Boucher on Wednesday. Neither player figures to be long for the G League, however, meaning fantasy owners hoping to capitalize on the massive potential could be coming to a close.
Al Horford BOS C
Celtics' Al Horford: Confirmed out Friday1h ago
Horford (kneecap) won't play Friday against the Hawks.
As expected, Horford will miss a fourth straight contest while recovering from left knee tendinitis. In his stead, Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis should continue seeing extra run.
Tyler Davis OKC C
Tyler Davis: Defensive force in win1h ago
Davis finished Wednesday's win over Raptors 905 with 24 points (7-18 FG, 10-12 FT), 16 rebounds, four blocks, three assists and two steals.
Davis hasn't done much with the Thunder, but he is averaging 18.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks with the Blue through 13 games. The big man will shoot to build upon those numbers Friday against the Hustle.
Jaylen Brown BOS SG
Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Questionable Friday vs. Hawks1h ago
Brown (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Hawks.
Brown was a late scratch due to an illness Wednesday, and it's unclear if he'll be recovered enough to take the floor Friday. If he does return, he'll probably come off the bench, as has been the case over his past three appearances. In games Brown has missed, Kyrie Irving has averaged 54.4 fantasy points, while Marcus Smart has averaged 29.6 fantasy points.
Gavin Bayreuther DAL D
Stars' Gavin Bayreuther: Needs to hit reset button13m ago
Bayreuther will be a healthy scratch for Thursday night's game against San Jose, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Expected to be back in action Saturday against the Avalanche, the 24-year-old's omission from Thursday's lineup is nothing besides a chance for him to hit the reset button. Bayreuther has two goals and five points in 13 games this season.
Evan Rodrigues BUF LW
Sabres' Evan Rodrigues: Picks up assist19m ago
Rodrigues tallied an assist in Tuesday's win over Los Angeles.
Rodrigues snapped an eight game drought with the assist, and is now up to nine points in 25 games. He's on pace for 27 points, which would be a career high, but at a much lower rate of production, seeing that he had 25 points in just 48 games last campaign.
Johan Larsson BUF C
Sabres' Johan Larsson: Picks up goal31m ago
Larsson picked up his second goal of the year during Tuesday's win over the Kings.
Larsson tallied the equalizing goal in the third period, helping his Sabres overcome a 3-1 deficit to win in overtime. The goal snapped an eight game drought, and brings him up to four points in 25 games. At this rate, it's looking unlikely that he'll surpass last year's total of 17 points.
Christopher Tanev VAN D
Canucks' Chris Tanev: Tallies assist37m ago
Tanev had an assist and plus-3 rating in Tuesday's win over Columbus.
Tanev had his shot deflected into the net for his team's first goal of the night, and he was on the ice for the rest of the goals they scored. The assist snapped a lengthy 21 game point drought. His plus-3 rating was his best performance of the year, with it being just the second time he was higher than plus-1 in a game.
Martin Hanzal DAL C
Stars' Martin Hanzal: Will be rested Thursday40m ago
Hanzal will be a healthy scratch for Thursday night's game against the Sharks, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Hanzal, who missed the first 28 games due to a back injury, isn't dealing with any type of setback, but the Stars are playing for the second time in as many days and understandably don't want tax the veteran center. Look for Hanzal to return Saturday for a road clash with the Avalanche.
Markus Granlund VAN C
Canucks' Markus Granlund: Stuck in rut44m ago
Granlund will look to snap his six game point drought Thursday versus Nashville.
Granlund has been ice cold for the past few weeks, having just a single point in his last dozen games. He has 11 points in 33 games, and needs just two more to surpass last season's total. Centering the third line and second power-play unit, the opportunities are there for him to succeed. If he can get on the scoresheet soon, that would do wonders for his confidence and getting him back on track.
