Latest Headlines

Tony Allen (right corneal abrasion) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Bulls.

Quincy Pondexter will likely draw the start, while Vince Carter will see extended minutes off the bench. Carter logged 41 minutes during his last outing with Allen sidelined, and put up 18 points with five 3-pointers, he does however have a difficult matchup against the Bulls, so Carter remains a risky option in daily leagues.

Paul Pierce (sore right toe) will start Friday vs. the Heat.

Otto Porter will head back to the bench, so those that made a speculative add of Porter can go ahead and send him back to the waiver wire. Pierce has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Heat, and he could serve as a decent low-budget plug-and-play in daily leagues.
Dec 19 - 6:14 PM

Shabazz Muhammad will start at shooting guard against the Friday against the Celtics.

He is getting the ball a ton and was the primary weapon in the second unit. Muhammad is a ball-dominant player, but he does have 64.9 of his baskets coming off an assist. The scoring makes him worth a look in standard leagues and his owners should just hope he starts adding more stats.
Dec 19 - 6:10 PM

Marcus Smart (Achilles) is active against the Wolves on Friday night.

He's had some bad luck with injuries in the past month, spraining his ankle and suffering an Achilles injury. Smart will likely be eased back into his role, but his upside in steals and treys make him a very hot commodity. He should get better from the field and isn't too bad from the line. Smart should be owned in standard leagues.
Dec 19 - 5:53 PM

Evan Turner will start at point guard against the Wolves on Friday.

Marcus Smart (Achilles) might not be at 100 percent, so there should be a lot of playing time headed Turner's way. Coach Brad Stevens has the Celtics running at the fastest pace in the league, so there is a nice opportunity for Turner in a daily league. His value in season-long formats is also intriguing, but his upside is not as high as Smart's.
Dec 19 - 5:39 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Lakers.

OKC really didn't need him for a game against one of the bottom-tier teams in the Western Conference, and Russell Westbrook will be primed for a big game tonight. Perry Jones will likely slide into the starting lineup, and he makes for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Durant will be re-evaluated on Saturday to determine his availability for Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans. Stay tuned.
Dec 19 - 5:33 PM

Gerald Henderson will start against the 76ers on Friday.

Lance Stephenson (hip) did not even travel and is expected to miss time. Henderson has not been very active with the ball while with the first unit, posting a 15.5 usage rate while he's next to Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson this season. He's only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Dec 19 - 4:24 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is doubtful to play on Saturday against the Rockets.

It's clear the Hawks are not going to rush him back, which makes sense considering how many players have aggravated their hamstring strains this season -- David Lee and Patrick Beverley, for example. His fantasy owners should just bench him and expect him back next week. Dennis Schroder gets a date with Patrick Beverley while Shelvin Mack will also get some run.
Dec 19 - 3:23 PM

Shabazz Muhammad is expected to get more playing time with the trade of Corey Brewer.

He's played very well and has a superstar-like usage rate of 29.2 over his last seven games. Muhammad has also been playing more time at small forward these days, so that bodes very well for his outlook. He's not going to do much outside of scoring, but he does have two three-steal games in his last four. 'Bazz is better suited for points leagues, but he's worth a look in standards, as well.
Dec 19 - 2:52 PM

Corey Brewer has been traded to the Rockets for Troy Daniels, Ronny Turiaf, two second-round picks and cash.

This has been in the works for a few days and was expected to get done today. Brewer will come off the bench to help a very thin second unit for the Rockets right now. He's a great fit in reality, but it's certainly not going to translate to solid fantasy value. Cut him in most leagues. Meanwhile, Shabazz Muhammad will get some extra minutes and is worth a look, especially in points leagues.
Dec 19 - 2:36 PM

Jordan Hill (illness) is expected to start against the Thunder on Friday.

He is expected to have a limitation on his minutes. Hill has been sick for the past two days and was not at shootaround. His owners will want to check back and may want to consider him benching him considering this is a late game. If he's out, Robert Sacre will likely pick up his minutes while Ed Davis may also play a little more.
Dec 19 - 2:22 PM

Rajon Rondo is expected to make his Mavs debut Saturday vs. the Spurs.

It's worth noting that the Mavs still intend to use Monta Ellis as their primary pick-and-roll ball handler, so while the spacing on the floor will change, Ellis' role will not. Rondo should be able to get some easier looks on offense with the offensive weapons that surround him, so perhaps he can improve on his current 40.5 percent shooting from the field.
