David Lee (hamstring) and Andrew Bogut (knee) will not play on Thursday against the Thunder.

Dec 17 - 6:28 PM

Dennis Schroder will draw the start in place of Jeff Teague (hamstring) on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers.

Dec 17 - 6:28 PM

Derrick Favors (ankle) will play against the Heat on Wednesday.

He went through shootaround on Tuesday and perhaps playing him in one of two games in the back-to-back set was the plan. Favors has been playing well in the starting lineup and his owners should have him locked and loaded for tonight. Rudy Gobert will likely move back to the bench, but it should be interesting to see if he gets more playing time due to how he's turning heads.
Dec 17 - 6:04 PM

Dwyane Wade (illness) will play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He was very ill on Tuesday and reportedly feels better heading into tonight. Wade played well through the illness, scoring 28 points in a win over the Nets. With Chris Bosh out, he's going to be very busy and should be in all lineups.
Dec 17 - 5:52 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday night against the Cavs.

He could miss additional time with the Hawks in the playoff hunt and all the hamstring aggravations this season. While Teague is out, Dennis Schroder is going to be a lot of fun to watch while Shelvin Mack also gets some extra playing time. Schroder is a very attractive daily play tonight and is worth a look for short-term value.
Dec 17 - 5:42 PM

Kevin Love (illness) will play in Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

This is excellent news for the Cavaliers, as Love was in serious danger of missing this one after not participating in the morning shootaround due to flu-like symptoms. Owners will want to activate Love in all lineups, even if he is at less than 100 percent.
Dec 17 - 5:21 PM

Goran Dragic (back) will start on Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

After missing the previous two games, Dragic is back and his owners can safely activate him in their lineups. He has a favorable matchup against the Hornets, and should be in for a nice night if his back doesn't flare up on him. Gerald Green will shift back to the bench on Wednesday, while Isaiah Thomas' value takes a slight hit with this news.
Dec 17 - 5:19 PM

The Boston Celtics "are exhibiting a renewed willingness" to pursue trade packages that include Rajon Rondo, according to Yahoo! Sports.

According to the report, league officials have said the asking price is "pretty high, probably higher than most want to pay," which is fairly obvious because there is no deal in place. The Celtics are looking to get a draft pick, so Marcus Smart would likely be their future point guard. Owners in deep leagues should consider stashing Smart while Phil Pressey and Evan Turner would also gain value. Rondo's value probably wouldn't change too much and he remains a No. 2 fantasy point guard who is better suited for points leagues.
Dec 17 - 4:46 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) practiced on Wednesday and plans to play against the Bucks on Thursday.

The Kings will likely make a decision following shootaround on Thursday. Cousins has been out for over three weeks with viral meningitis and the Kings could limit him in his first game back, especially since his conditioning is not likely where it should be. His owners will want to check back tomorrow.
Dec 17 - 4:26 PM

Joel Freeland is listed as the starting center to face the Bucks on Wednesday.

Coach Terry Stotts has changed his lineups just before tip several times, so this is not necessarily set in stone. It does make sense because Chris Kaman isn't capable of playing big minutes at age 32 with a ton of injuries in his career. Additionally, Kaman's wife is expecting to give birth, so that could be a factor here, too. Kaman is still worth a look in standard leagues while Freeland could have value in deep formats.
Dec 17 - 3:34 PM

C.J. Watson was not at shootaround and is questionable to face the Clippers on Wednesday due to a sinus infection.

He has been playing around 30 minutes per night before taking garbage time into account, so the Pacers would have a big hole to fill. Donald Sloan would pick up some extra playing time while Rodney Stuckey's minutes would be extremely safe.
