Here is a look at a couple key injury updates and our optimal fantasy lineup for tonight’s action.

According to Scott Dempsey of the Denver Post, Kobe Bryant will play tonight after missing Sunday night’s game due to a shoulder injury.

Danilo Gallinari will not suit up against for Denver against the Lakers. He missed practice yesterday and is suffering from an ankle injury. He would’ve been a good pickup, but of course is out of the question now.
