Latest Headlines

In yet another reversal, Raymond Felton (Achilles) is starting on Monday against the Spurs.

Felton said earlier that he would decide whether or not he would play, and it appears he played that card and won tonight. Nolan Smith and Jonny Flynn are no longer fantasy options in most formats. Felton himself is a bit of a risk, given the injury and the fact that the Blazers want to play the young guys.

The Lakers have been awarded a $4.85 million disabled player exception for Steve Nash, who is out for the season with nerve damage.

The Lakers are over the salary cap and this exception will allow them to sign a free agent for the remainder of the season, or possibly trade for a player in the final year of their contract. We should hear reports about possible targets for L.A. in the coming days, so owners in deep leagues should keep an eye out for updates.

Andrew Bogut (eye) will start vs. the Heat on Tuesday.

He was downgraded to questionable but was a full participant during shootaround, and the bruise to his orbital bone shouldn't have any lasting effects. Fantasy owners can comfortably deploy him in a favorable matchup vs. Miami's frontcourt.
Nov 25 - 7:03 PM

Omer Asik (back) will return to action on Tuesday after missing the past four games.

Asik was a partial participant in Monday's practice and is finally ready to play after missing the past week, which will send Alexis Ajinca back to the bench and steal a few minutes from Ryan Anderson. Asik has been a terrific source of rebounds this year, as well as FG percentage and blocks, so owners relying on his big-man stats should activate him in all lineups.
Nov 25 - 7:02 PM

Darren Collison (quad) will not play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans, and Ramon Sessions will start.

Sessions will be asked to step it up on the offensive end tonight with Rudy Gay (Achilles) also sidelined, and he makes for a solid option in daily leagues. Ray McCallum will see some extended minutes off the bench, but Sessions is the guy to own here.
Nov 25 - 6:57 PM

Brandon Jennings (thumb) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks, and D.J. Augustin will draw the start.

Augustin will draw his first start of the season, and he could make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Spencer Dinwiddie will also see some extended minutes off the bench, but Augustin offers the most upside. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with Augustin, but his value will likely be short-lived as Jennings' shouldn't be out very long with a sprained thumb.
Nov 25 - 6:47 PM

Brandon Knight (quad) will start Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

Knight was listed as questionable heading into this one, but it appears he'll give it a go. He's averaging 18.1 points, 6.4 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 1.7 three-pointers per game this season, and has been a must-start guy this season. Get him active.
Nov 25 - 6:42 PM

O.J. Mayo will enter the starting lineup Tuesday vs. the Pistons, sending Khris Middleton back to the bench.

Coach Jason Kidd's rotations have been all over the place this season, so while Mayo enters the starting lineup tonight, he could just as easily head back the bench in the next one. Mayo has been hit-or-miss this season, averaging 10.9 points, 3.4 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers per game while shooting 40.3 percent from the field. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach to see how Mayo fares with the starting unit.
Nov 25 - 6:31 PM

Kris Humphries will enter the starting lineup in place of Nene (foot) for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

When given the minutes Humphries is a double-double threat, so he should serve as a fine plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Currently there is no timetable set for Nene's (foot) return, so if there's currently a guy on your roster you've been looking to cut, Humphries makes sense as a speculative add.
Nov 25 - 6:16 PM

Andrew Bogut (eye) has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

Bogut was a full participant during shootaround, so this news is a bit surprising. If Bogut is unable to go, Marreese Speights will be the primary beneficiary with Festus Ezeli seeing some extended run off the bench. The Heat have given up plenty of big lines to opposing centers this season, so Speights could be in for another big night. Stay tuned.
Nov 25 - 6:05 PM

Norris Cole (finger) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

Cole had an impressive 23-point debut on opening night, but since then he's failed to eclipse 12 points. Cole is averaging just 7.4 points, 3.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a starter, and he's just not worth owning in standard leagues. His return will likely translate to a loss of playing time for Shabazz Napier, making Napier an unattractive option in daily leagues.
Nov 25 - 6:00 PM

Joakim Noah (eye/left knee) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Denver.

It's worth noting that Joakim's left knee is the one that was surgically repaired this offseason, so we'll be monitoring this situation closely. If Noah sits out, Nikola Mirotic would likely slide into the starting lineup, and would serve as an excellent plug-and-play option in daily leagues against a weak Denver interior defense. Check back for an official update on Noah's status as we draw closer to Tuesday's tip.
