If you weren't already aware, we've partnered with Fanduel to bring you, our lovely readers, some fun fantasy basketball games. Oh, and you can make some cash doing it.

Setting your lineups aren't always easy, so we have some injury updates to give you guys to make your lives a little easier.

  • Nerlens NoelNerlens sprained his left ankle in Wednesday's loss to the Orlando Magic, and never returned to game action. He seems far from concerned about it, which is a great sign. With that said, it's probably a given he won't play in Friday's game against the Chicago Bulls. That means more time for Brandon Davies, who is currently hotter than hell itself.

  • Derrick Rose - Rose has been nursing double ankle sprains, which even by his standards is some horrible injury luck. He played in Chicago's win on Wednesday, but managed to tweak both his ankles during a second-quarter collision. The oft-injured point guard typically isn't one to rush back onto the court, so his status for Friday is pretty up in the air. Expect a good amount of Kirk Hinrich against Philadelphia.

  • Rodney Stuckey - Stuckey's been dealing with a foot injury since before the start of the season, and after attempting to play through it will sit for a couple games. Head coach Frank Vogel says Stuckey will miss at least three games, meaning a whole lot more Donald Sloan. Sloan has been impressive thus far, averaging 15.6 PPG, and makes for a pretty cheap point guard option on Fanduel.
If you want to play (and I'm sure you do), make sure to sign up here! We'll have contests with other LB and SBNation readers as the season goes along.
