Police say Zach Randolph met a man dealing marijuana aboard a charter cruise ship in Portland on Friday and invited him to his mansion later in order to sell weed to the 20 or so guests at Randolph's after-cruise party.

James Ruben Beasley told police he was encouraged to sell marijuana to anyone interested, until he was beaten with pool cues around 4 a.m. Saturday. Randolph has been in similar situations before, but is usually able to escape without penalty. We recently predicted the lockout was going to be bad news for him, and it didn't take long for Z-Bo to get into trouble with the law. The good news for Randolph is that no drugs were found when police searched the residence later.

Steve Kerr said that he'll be "very cautious" bringing Stephen Curry back from his groin injury.

Curry will miss all three games of the current road trip, and it sounds like he could be out beyond that. Kerr said that while Curry's MRI results were "encouraging," Curry is still experiencing symptoms from the groin strain, and the symptoms are the more important metric here. With Golden State being so loaded, they'll have the luxury of taking their time bringing Curry back, and Kerr said he'll want Curry to go through a lot of on-court work before he's cleared to play. Quinn Cook will be worth owning while Curry is out.

Gary Clark (hip) said he intends to play Thursday vs. the Warriors.

Clark is officially being listed as questionable, but he was confident that he'd be able to power through the hip issue when asked directly about his status for tonight's game. "Yup! [I'm playing]," said Clark, "I’ve played two months with a broken ankle. This is nothing." Clark has seen increased minutes with Carmelo Anthony off the floor, but he's still not really doing enough to warrant a roster spot in most settings.

Rajon Rondo is expected to miss the next 3-5 weeks of action with a fractured third metacarpal in his right hand.

Rondo will meet with a specialist on Thursday to determine whether or not he will require surgery, at which point, we'll have a better idea on his exact timetable. Lonzo Ball will be the primary beneficiary while Rondo recovers, and Lance Stephenson could see some increased responsibilities with the second unit. Rondo was just barely clinging to late-round value this season, so if you're in a standard 12-team league without an IR-spot, he's not really worth holding.

Damian Lillard (right knee) had 31 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds vs. the Lakers in L.A. on Wednesday, making 8-of-23 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs in 38 minutes.

Lillard said after Tuesday's practice, "I got up [Monday], I was a little bit nervous. I was really sore. I got a little workout in [Tuesday]. I felt pretty good moving around." He was listed as 'probable' all along and the knee clearly didn't limit him tonight, so this shouldn't be an ongoing concern. We'll let you know if there's any danger of him missing Friday's road game.

Jusuf Nurkic racked up 21 points, 14 rebounds (six offensive), four blocks and three steals in a losing effort on Wednesday.

He didn't stop there, making 7-of-13 shots and 7-of-8 free throws with just two turnovers in 35 minutes. Nurk has been a punt-FT% type center in years past but he's flipped the narrative this year with 79.5% shooting at the line, and he's up to 84.6% over his past five games. If you hear sirens in the distance, it's just another Nurk Alert.

LeBron James passed Wilt Chamberlain to become the No. 5 all-time NBA scorer on Wednesday, finishing with 44 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, five 3-pointers and three blocks.

It was all LeBron, all the time tonight as he made 13-of-19 field goals and 13-of-15 free throws, en route to the season-high in scoring. Up next on the all-time list are MJ, Kobe, The Mailman and Kareem. He's averaging a sustainable 35.0 minutes and his numbers are in line with recent seasons, which is all fantasy owners need for auto-pilot top-10 value. Oh, and LeBron has the Lakers winning again, too.

Rajon Rondo fractured his hand during Wednesday's game and will be out at least a couple weeks, according to coach Luke Walton.

Walton said the injury happened when Rondo hit the floor going for a steal, and it's a tough break for a Lakers team that's been cruising recently. Lonzo Ball's minutes should increase and Lance Stephenson could be asked to handle the ball more, too. There's not really enough upside here to hold him in most leagues while he recovers.

Luka Doncic (sore left shoulder) scored 13 points (5-of-13 FG, 1-of-2 FT) with six rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday.

Doncic went for an X-ray after the game, but the results were negative and he just has a sore shoulder. He said that he thinks he's fine, so hopefully he won't miss any time. He was limited to just 25 minutes because of the score as the Mavs were dominating. Check back for updates on the star rookie.

T.J. Warren hit 10-of-17 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 27 points, four rebounds, two assists and three steals in 38 minutes and another start for the Suns, as they shocked the short-handed Spurs 116-96.

TJW went through a real rough patch, hitting just 3-of-14 shots with a missed game over a three-game streak from November 2 through November 6, when he was coming off the bench. He bottomed out with a 13-minute, zero-points performance against the Nets, which caused him to be dropped in some leagues. But he was then miraculously put into the starting lineup over Ryan Anderson, who is basically now out of the rotation, and has now scored between 21 and 29 points in four straight games. If he's somehow still available in your league, he shouldn't be.

Nikola Mirotic (right ankle) expects to have an MRI on Thursday.

Mirotic is "hopeful it is nothing serious" but will get tests to rule out anything more than a sprain. He fell late in Wednesday's game and tweaked the same ankle he sprained recently that cost him two games. New Orleans has a back-to-back set looming on Friday and Saturday, so owners should prepare for the possibility he misses those games. Julius Randle played big minutes as a starter in his previous absence and would likely do so again.
Nov 14 - 11:48 PM

Mike Conley scored 26 points (9-of-16 FG, 6-of-8 FT) with two rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

Conley continued his rebound from a mini-slump last week with his third straight 20-point game. Continued success by the Grizzlies and good health from Conley are all that's preventing him from being a very good draft day value. He's having a nice bounce-back season so far.
