12/6/2019 Kevin Love, Cle, F-C
Love (illness) did not take part in the Cavaliers' shootaround and didn't play Friday against the Magic.

Analysis: The Cavaliers also play Saturday against Philadelphia, and Love should be considered questionable for that one as well. His absence will open up more minutes for Larry Nance Jr., who's averaging a respectable 13 points and 8.1 rebounds over his last seven games.
12/6/2019 Andrew Wiggins, Min, G-F
Wiggins is dealing with a sprained right thumb and will be a game-time decision for Friday's matchup with the Thunder.

Analysis: Wiggins had 26 points Wednesday at Dallas but shot just 7 of 24 from the field, and it's quite possible the injury had something to do with his off shooting night. It's also looking like a distinct possibility he sits out Friday's contest.
12/6/2019 Karl-Anthony Towns, Min, C
Towns (right knee tendinitis) will be a game-time decision for Friday's contest against the Thunder.

Analysis: Towns hasn't looked at all limited of late, as he's averaging 25.8 points, 13.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and nearly 35 minutes over an excellent five-game stretch. He's a must start if active, but fantasy owners may want to have a Plan B just in case he's held out.
12/6/2019 Isaiah Thomas, Was, PG
Thomas will miss Friday's game at Miami due to a strained left calf.

Analysis: Thomas also sat out Thursday against the 76ers, with Ish Smith starting in his place and posting a nice stat line of 19 points on 7-of-11 shooting along with eight assists. Consider Thomas day to day for now.
12/6/2019 Joel Embiid, Phi, F-C
Embiid (rest) will be held out of Saturday's game against the Cavaliers.

Analysis: The move is presumably to have the star center at full strength for Sunday's key game against Toronto, which held Embiid scoreless on 0-of-11 shooting in 32 minutes when the Sixers last met the Raptors on Nov. 25.
12/6/2019 Tristan Thompson, Cle, F-C
Thompson (illness) will be a game-time decision for Friday's contest against the Magic.

Analysis: Kevin Love has already been ruled out of the game due to an illness, so the Cavs could be short a couple of big men. John Henson, who just returned from his own injury on Tuesday, could be thrown into the fire if Thompson is held out.
