The Rockets believe Kyle Lowry and free agent Goran Dragic can both get starter's minutes, according to the Houston Chronicle.

This is turning into a very messy situation. Dragic is on the record saying he wants to be a starter. Lowry has clearly stated that he doesn't think he can play for coach Kevin McHale and that he doesn't believe he'll fit with Dragic. The Rockets, however, say they are going to do everything they can to re-sign Dragic. It's one of fantasy's biggest stories to monitor as we head into the draft and free agency. Rockets GM Daryl Morey is never afraid to make a bold move.

Greivis Vasquez played down the stretch against the Mavericks on Friday, finishing with 14 points, three rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He's hot with a 21-point game on Wednesday and he looks like he'll get more run with DeMar DeRozan (groin) possibly out. Vasquez started the last time DeRozan missed a game due to injury and he's been fairly effective from a per-minute standpoint. He's worth a look in standard leagues.

Lou Williams played 30 minutes against the Mavericks on Friday with 16 points, one rebound, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers.

He replaced DeMar DeRozan (groin) in the third quarter, but one would think he wouldn't move into the starting lineup because he has such a great rhythm in the second unit as the sixth man. Still, Williams is going to get more minutes and looks like a terrific asset in all standards. In the past two weeks, he was a top-five player. Make sure he's not on your wire.

Jeff Teague went off again on Friday against the Pelicans with 26 points, four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

That's five games in a row with at least 23 points, averaging 25.8 points, 2.8 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 triples on 53.8 percent from the field and 95.1 percent from the line in that span. This might be his high point on the season, so feel free to see if another owner will overpay. To be clear, Teague should crush his ADP.

Austin Rivers did not score in 21 minutes of action in a start at shooting guard on Friday.

He added two assists, one foul and missed all eight shots from the field. Rivers is just not capable of scoring in the NBA on his own and doesn't do much else on the stat sheet. He's not worth owning in most leagues and is yet another case that fantasy owners shouldn't overreact about who is starting.

Dwight Howard (knee) is doubtful to play against the Bucks on Saturday night.

He is traveling with the team, but it would be a major surprise to see him on the court. Tarik Black is playing more minutes and has crept onto the radar in deep leagues. Howard owners just have to sit tight for now. He's not a buy-low option, though.
Nov 28 - 11:04 PM

Isaiah Canaan (ankle) and Patrick Beverley (hamstring) have been ruled out for Saturday against the Bucks.

The Rockets are in trouble. Jason Terry started the second half and he's likely going to start on Saturday, as well. Troy Daniels, Francisco Garcia and Nick Johnson will all have to help out for the Rockets while James Harden carries them. Canaan seems like he's going to miss multiple games and can be cut in most formats.
Nov 28 - 10:55 PM

Cody Zeller was effective in his 33 minutes as the starting power forward against the Warriors on Friday with 15 points, 14 boards and one turnover.

He only committed two fouls and didn't make many mistakes tonight. Zeller was coming in with a few nice games under his belt before this one and there's a chance he gets his minutes to around 26 even when Marvin Williams (shoulder) comes back. He's worth a look in standard leagues for now, but preferably in exchange for something you're not going to miss much.
Nov 28 - 10:35 PM

Marreese Speights looked like an All-Star against the Hornets on Friday, scoring 27 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in just 24 minutes.

He attempted 20 shots tonight and made the most of his four offensive boards. Speights has seen a slight increase in minutes to 20.0 per game over his last five, averaging 17.6 points, 4.6 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.6 blocks. David Lee (hamstring) is getting close to a return, so it's hard to be too excited about picking Speights up as anything more than a short-term, deep league asset.

DeMar DeRozan went to the locker room due to a left groin strain and will not return.

He was in a lot of pain and he walked very slowed to the locker room, so it's possible he misses some time. The Raptors will likely give him an MRI, and we would probably consider him as doubtful for Sunday against the Lakers. Lou Williams replaced him and would be a very strong pickup in all leagues -- he was already hot coming in. Terrence Ross would also see an uptick while James Johnson also gets more minutes and is arguably a better grab than Ross.

Isaiah Canaan went to the locker room on Friday and will not return.

He attempted his free throws after what looks like a bad sprain. Jason Terry replaced him while Nick Johnson and Troy Daniels could also help out. We'll look for an update on Canaan from the team, but he could miss some time and the Rockets would be in deep trouble with Patrick Beverley (hamstring) without a target date. Worst yet, Canaan was playing well and finished with 13 points, two rebounds and three 3-pointers.
Nov 28 - 9:05 PM

Darren Collison is starting against the Spurs on Friday.

The Kings continue to not update their probable players until after the tip, which has become very annoying. Collison returns from a two-game absence and we'll let you know how he does tonight.
