The NBA slate on Saturday is shortened a bit with a couple of postponements. So if you’re working on your fantasy lineup, be sure to get players from these two games out of there. The Indiana Pacers and Houston Rockets won’t be playing in Texas with the ongoing snowstorm. The San Antonio Spurs won’t be in New York to take on the Knicks at MSG due to positive Covid-19 tests. So we’re down to five games that we’ll have to work with to start the weekend. Here are some injury notes and we’ll get you the lineups as they trickle in later on.
