Cleveland Cavs Fantasy Spin

Rodney Hood (left Achilles) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies. This will be the second straight game out of the lineup for Hood, and it's not a great sign that he's getting ruled out a full day in advance of tip-off. Alec Burks, Jordan Clarkson and Jaron Blossomgame will split his minutes, with Clarkson being the most attractive option out of that group.

Memphis Grizzlies Fantasy Spin

Joakim Noah (sore right heel) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs. Noah has sat out the past three games due to the heel issue, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the oft-injured big man miss No. 4 on Wednesday. He's not a large enough part of the rotation for his playing status to make much of an impact in fantasy hoops.
