Kyrie Irving was one of the few people not celebrating Kevin Durant's return to the starting lineup when he hit just 3-of-13 shots and 1-of-5 3-pointers for a season-low nine points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's 116-103 win over the Raptors. We were kidding about Irving not celebrating Durant's start, as he has to be thrilled to be getting his teammates back together, but he just happened to his worst game of the season tonight, and it wasn't close. Kyrie had scored at least 12 points in every game this season and his three makes were also a season low. He should be ready to bounce back against the Pacers and Blazers on Thursday and Friday, although managers just have to hope he's playing in both of those games.

Domantas Sabonis (back) will miss his sixth straight game on Thursday vs. the Nets. This isn't terribly surprising given that Sabonis was just a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, and with Goga Bitadze (ankle) questionable for tomorrow night, we could see Oshae Brissett logging heavy minutes as a starter. If Bitadze gets ruled out, Brissett will make for a quality streamer.
