Each Sunday, the Dashboard centralizes all the crucial information fantasy managers need to dominate their weekly head-to-head matchups or climb the standings in their rotisserie leagues. The Dashboard covers schedule analysis, status updates, adds, drops, watch list candidates, and deep league targets for managers of all skill levels. Quite simply, it is a comprehensive weekly cheat sheet that is packed with so much information that we’ve devoted two writers to producing it.

Jerryd Bayless(notes) is day-to-day with a case of food poisoning that has kept him out Toronto’s last game.

Rodrigue Beaubois(notes) is still limited in terms of his physical activities but could see game action in January as he recovers from a fractured foot.

Andris Biedrins(notes) has missed the Warriors’ past four games with a sprained ankle and is doubtful for Monday’s contest against the 76ers.

Andray Blatche(notes) will sit out of Sunday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs after getting into an altercation with teammate JaVale McGee(notes) outside of a Washington, D.C. area nightclub and getting suspended by the Wizards for one game.

Vince Carter(notes) will miss Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers and is expected to miss about a week as he recovers from a mild knee injury.

Atlanta’s sixth man, Jamal Crawford(notes), is scheduled to return on Sunday evening against the Hornets after missing the Hawks’ last five games with back soreness.

News about Carlos Delfino’s(notes) concussion has been concerning. The good news is that the injury is not expected to be a career-ending injury, but Delfino will likely have to wear a protective helmet whenever he returns to action. Delfino’s return is completely unpredictable this season.

Reggie Evans(notes) is expected to be out until at least February 1st after undergoing surgery on his fractured foot.

Drew Gooden(notes) continues to be hobbled by plantar fasciitis and is doubtful for Monday’s meeting with the Hawks after being sent back to Milwaukee for treatment.

Miami’s locker room leader, Udonis Haslem(notes), is possibly out for the season with a torn ligament in his left foot. At a minimum, Haslem will miss a couple of months of action.

Spurs reserve George Hill(notes) has been cleared to play limited minutes on Sunday after missing San Antonio’s past four games with a sore big toe.

Brandon Jennings(notes) is expected to miss at least three more weeks after undergoing surgery last week to repair a fractured metatarsal in left foot. Jennings is expected to return in late January barring any setbacks.

Jonas Jerebko(notes) recently shed his walking boot and appears to be ahead of the timeline for returning from his partially torn Achilles tendon. Current speculation has Jerebko back on the court around the All-Star break.

The oft-injured Yi Jianlian(notes) is expected to miss two-to-four weeks with a sprained MCL in his right knee.

Chris Kaman(notes) is out of the walking boot and remains a couple of weeks away from returning to action as he recovers from a bone bruise and a strained ligament in his left foot.

Corey Maggette(notes) is day-to-day after suffering a concussion.

JaVale McGee will sit out of Sunday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs after getting into an altercation with teammate Andray Blatche outside of a Washington, D.C. area nightclub and getting suspended by the Wizards for one game.

Yao Ming’s season, and possibly career, is over with his latest devastating foot injury.

Anthony Morrow(notes) is expected to miss two-to-three weeks with a strained right hamstring. Morrow should be back in action by early January.

Joel Przybilla(notes) has missed Portland’s last three games with a sprained ankle and is considered day-to-day.

Sonny Weems(notes) is day-to-day with back spasms that have kept him out of Toronto’s past three games.
