Utah's Simone Fontecchio (foot) available on Friday

Utah Jazz forward Simone Fontecchio (foot) is available for Friday's game against the Atlanta Hawks.

What It Means:

Fontecchio will be active in a second unit role after Utah's forward was listed as questionable with foot soreness.

According to Rotogrinders' Court IQ in 211.4 minutes this season, Fontecchio is averaging 0.69 FanDuel points per minute and a 19.4% usage rate.

Kyrie Irving requests trade from Nets

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving has requested a trade, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

What It Means:

Irving informed the Nets he will leave for free agency in July if they don't trade him ahead of the February 9 deadline. He's coming off his best month of the season and just earned another All-Star starting bid, but Irving's expiring contract and unpredictable off-court behavior could complicate potential trade offers. The Nets' next game is on Saturday versus the Washington Wizards.

Kyrie averaged 29.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 3.8 3-pointers over 13 games in January, yielding 51.1 FanDuel points per contest. numberFire's models project Kyrie for 30.9 minutes and 38.4 FanDuel points on Saturday against the Wiz.

Luka Doncic (heel) ruled out for Mavericks' Saturday matchup

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic (heel) will not play in Saturday's game against the Golden State Warriors.

What It Means:

Doncic will sit out on Saturday after the Mavericks' superstar was forced to leave on Thursday with a heel injury. In a matchup versus a Warriors' team ranked 16th in defensive rating, expect Josh Green and Spencer Dinwiddie to see a bump in usage while Doncic is inactive.

Per Rotogrinders' Court IQ in 374.2 minutes this season with Doncic off the floor, Green is averaging 0.70 FanDuel points and a 14.7% usage rate while Dinwiddie's production stands at 1.17 FanDuel points per minute with a 30.2% usage rate in a 671.0 minutes sample size.

Pacers list Daniel Theis (knee) as questionable on Friday

Indiana Pacers power forward Daniel Theis (knee) is questionable for Friday's contest against the Sacramento Kings.

What It Means:

After playing seven minutes in his season debut on Thursday, Theis' status is currently in limbo for the later part of the Pacers' back-to-back. In a favorable spot versus a Kings' team ranked 28th in points allowed per game in the paint, expect Oshae Brissett to see more time off the bench if Theis is ruled out.

Theis' current Friday projection includes 7.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 0.8 assists.

Indiana's Tyrese Haliburton (knee/elbow) questionable for Friday's game versus Kings

Indiana Pacers guard Tyrese Haliburton (knee/elbow) is questionable to play in Friday's game versus the Sacramento Kings.

What It Means:

Haliburton's availability for the second half of Indiana's back-to-back is currently in question after Indiana's point logged 35 minutes in his return on Thursday. Expect T.J. McConnell to see more minutes against a Kings' team ranked 21st in defensive rating if Haliburton is inactive.

Haliburton's current projection includes 17.5 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 8.7 assists.
