Latest Headlines

The Nuggets picked up the third year on Kenneth Faried's rookie contact on Monday.

This was a no-brainer as Faried projects to be a part of the team's long-term plans. Nowhere near close to the development of his offensive potential, we still love the Manimal as a mid-round pick this season.

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.

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.

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.

Evan Fournier (right quad contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Warriors.

If Fournier is unable to go, Victor Oladipo would be in line for a healthy heaping of minutes, with Willie Green, Ben Gordon, and Elfrid Payton also seeing some extended run. Stay tuned.
Nov 25 - 5:16 PM

David West (ankle) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, and is targeting a return for Friday's game vs. Orlando.

Head coach Frank Vogel will have the final say as to whether West suits up or not, but he did give an encouraging quote after Tuesday's practice. "I’m hopeful [West can play Friday]," said Vogel. "We’ll see how he responded to this work, but we’re hopeful for Friday." It's looking like West is very close to making his regular-season debut, and when he returns Luis Scola will head to the bench. Stay tuned.

Roy Hibbert (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. San Antonio.

If Hibbert is unable to go, Ian Mahinmi would be in line to draw another start. However, a matchup against the Spurs is not very enticing, so owners may want to think twice before using Mahinmi as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Nov 25 - 4:16 PM

Omer Asik (back) said that he will to try to play Tuesday vs. the Kings.

Asik has missed four consecutive games with this back injury, but he was able to practice on Monday. Still, owners will want to check back closer to tip-off for an official update on his status. If Asik is unable to go, Alexis Ajinca would likely draw another start at center, but Ryan Anderson is the one who gains the most when Asik is sidelined.
Nov 25 - 3:46 PM

Kirk Hinrich (chest) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Denver.

Hinrich doesn't offer much fantasy value while Derrick Rose is healthy, and his status will have a greater impact on Aaron Brooks' minute allotment. Stay tuned, but whether he plays or not should be of little concern to owners in standard leagues.
Nov 25 - 3:36 PM

Pau Gasol (calf) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Gasol is an absolute must-start option when he plays, but given the fact that Tom Thibodeau plays rather loosely with the term "probable," owners will want to check back closer to tip-off for an official update. Stay tuned.
Nov 25 - 3:29 PM

Derrick Rose (hamstring) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Owners will want to check back for an official update on Rose's status as we draw closer to Tuesday's tip, but it's looking like he'll try and give it a go. Rose is coming off an 18-point outing vs. Utah, and has a favorable matchup tonight against the Nuggets. If he plays, Aaron Brooks won't be worth using in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Nov 25 - 3:21 PM

Mike Miller ran with the starting unit during Tuesday's practice, but head coach David Blatt hasn't yet made a decision who will start at shooting guard on Wednesday.

This is something worth watching, as Shawn Marion's status as the starting SG has always been viewed as a short-term experiment. Rookie Joe Harris' name has come up as a potential starter in the past, but his minutes have come down a bit and it appears he's lost some momentum. Miller is a quality 3-point shooter, and LeBron James is a fan of him from their days together in Miami. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with Miller, but it's certainly a situation worth monitoring.
