Avery Bradley (shoulders) has started conditioning drills.

Doc Rivers said on Thursday that Bradley is on track for a mid-December return, a bit earlier than the January target month that had been previously reported. Bradley is feeling good, but the team will be cautious in his return from injury.

James Johnson was ejected in the third quarter on Saturday for picking up two technical fouls.

The Heat are now down to just seven healthy players for the fourth quarter. Johnson wasn't having a great game today, finishing with two points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers. He's still a hold in standard leagues with the missing so many players.

Isaiah Thomas exploded down the stretch during a 107-106 win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring a season-high 37 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He scored 12 consecutive Celtics points down the stretch to lead his team to the win. He also went to the line a season-high 15 times tonight and made 11-of-19 from the field. Thomas is shooting the ball 0.1 percent worse from the field compared to last year, but his efficiency is up thanks to more treys and going to the line 2.5 more times per game. The free throws have made him a top-three option for the free throw percentage category. Thomas has third-round value on the season and is now a top-10 scorer in the NBA. The Pizza Guy is cookin'.

Dario Saric matched his career highs with 21 points and 12 boards against the Celtics on Saturday, adding two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

He did get plenty of minutes at small forward tonight despite coach Brett Brown saying it wasn't the best matchup to do so against the Celtics. Saric was as cold as ever coming into this game, but maybe the new role is just what he needs -- there is still no prognosis on Robert Covington (knee). We'd obviously like to see him do it again after a two-week slump, but he's worth a look if your league is quick with the pickups and you have something to cut.

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 27 points in a huge comeback 125-120 overtime win in Charlotte on Saturday, adding 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers.

That's his seventh 25-15 game of his career and the Wolves needed it, especially with Towns pulling down a big-time offensive board for a put-back in overtime. Towns was finally able to clear the 10.0 boards per game plateau on the season with this game while he's added 2.7 blocks over his last three. The consistent monster lines are coming.

Andrew Wiggins picked up a season-high three steals in a win over the Hornets on Saturday, adding 29 points, one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers.

Yeah, the points are nice, but how about those steals? Before tonight, Wiggins managed just nine steals in his 692 minutes this season. He still hasn't blocked a shot since Nov. 19, but we'll take the steals. Hopefully he can add a little more across-the-board value to boost him in standard leagues.
Dec 3 - 10:43 PM

Nicolas Batum handed out a season-high 12 assists during a 125-120 overtime loss to the Wolves on Saturday, adding 15 points, eight rebounds, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

The offense went through Batum to make him more of a passer, which helped keep down his somewhat inefficient ways. The inconsistency has been a factor for Batum on the scoring side of things for most of the season. In his previous games, Batum had just 10.0 percent of his shots at the rim while he’s only made 32.8 percent on midrange. He’s posted sixth-round value on the year.
Dec 3 - 10:12 PM

Frank Kaminsky bounced back in a big way against the Wolves on Saturday, scoring 21 points with nine rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

After scoring a combined three points in his previous two and making just 1-of-15, he was on the other end of the spectrum. Kaminksy scored his first eight points in the first three minutes and kept it going for his 31 minutes. Marvin Williams (knee) is going to miss at least one more and likely more time beyond that, so hopefully Frank can keep it going. He's worth a look.
Dec 3 - 9:59 PM

P.J. Tucker will start at small forward against the Warriors on Saturday.

He'll start opposite Kevin Durant. Good luck, Mr. Tucker.
Dec 3 - 9:30 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay, Will Barton, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will start against the Jazz on Saturday.

Coach Mike Malone was not happy about Friday's beatdown, but he'll roll with the same starters. If the Jazz hit a bunch of threes, there could be a lot of benching going on. Gallinari has played a ton of minutes and looked healthy in his last two.
Dec 3 - 8:54 PM

Jose Calderon (right hamstring) will not return to Saturday's game.

He was feeling a lot of discomfort, was checked out near the bench for a couple minutes and the training staff took him to the locker room. Calderon has dealt with hamstring strains throughout his career, so he's almost certainly going to miss time. With D'Angelo Russell (knee) also out, there will be plenty of minutes going to Marcelo Huertas now while Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams may pick up a little more work.
Dec 3 - 8:42 PM

Goran Dragic, Wayne Ellington, Rodney McGruder, Josh McRoberts and Hassan Whiteside will start against the Blazers on Saturday.

The Heat need a lot of help on the wing, so they'll be getting plenty of minutes from Ellington and McGruder. Ellington has the better upside for his higher usage and 3-pointers.
