Jared Dudley hit four 3-point buckets and scored 25 points in the Suns' 103-88 preseason win over the Kings on Monday.

Dudley has positioned himself as one of fantasy basketball's stronger late round plays because of his consistency and stable role, even if he doesn't have the upside or cachet that some of his contemporaries have in that stage of the draft. We would have been fine if he kept flying underneath the radar, but an outing like this is bound to get other owners' attention heading into draft day.

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.

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.
Nov 28 - 8:27 PM

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Nuggets.

With Thomas sidelined, Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe will get more than their usual allotment of minutes, and Gerald Green will see some extended minutes off the bench. Rookie G Tyler Ennis will also join the active roster, but he's a negligible fantasy option. Green makes for a sneaky play in daily leagues as the team's primary offensive weapon off the bench.
Nov 28 - 7:43 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison (quad) are listed as probable to face the Spurs on Friday.

Now it sounds like they're going to play unless coach Mike Malone pulls a Tom Thibodeau. Gay owners will still want to check back for an update in the next 30 minutes. Omri Casspi would only be a handcuff in deep leagues if Gay does make it back.
Nov 28 - 7:26 PM

Ryan Hollins will start at center in place of DeMarcus Cousins (illness) on Friday.

He's played a whopping 11 minutes all season and just one minute in the last seven minutes combined. Hollins getting minutes in the 20s would be a huge surprise and he is not a fantasy option tonight. Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams figure to benefit the most.
Nov 28 - 7:15 PM

Matt Barnes (calf) will start against the Rockets on Friday night.

He is coming off a two-game absence due to an aggravation to his calf. The Clippers will probably monitor his minutes, so he's not a fantasy option. Reggie Bullock will move back to a reserve and has no fantasy value.
Nov 28 - 6:42 PM

John Henson (foot) will not play on Friday night, and coach Jason Kidd does not expect him to be available for Saturday's game either.

With both Henson and Zaza Pachulia (personal) unavailable, Larry Sanders will get all the run he can handle, with Ersan Ilyasova and Giannis Antetokounmpo seeing some minutes backing up the center position. Sanders has been coming on lately, and could make for a solid low-budget play in daily leagues tonight with a favorable matchup vs. the Pistons, and a healthy heaping of minutes coming his way.

Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel revealed for the first time that in addition to George Hill's knee contusion, he is also dealing with a tear in his left quad and is not expected back until mid-December.

Vogel said that the tear did not show up in the initial MRI because there was too much blood, but that is the reason Hill has been out for so long. C.J. Watson is expected to make his season debut Friday night, and it's not known exactly how that will affect Donald Sloan's minutes. However, given Sloan's solid play so far this season, he'll likely remain in the starting lineup as Watson is eased back into the rotation, and he should remain be held in standard leagues until something changes.
Nov 28 - 6:37 PM

Dwight Howard (knee) will not play against the Clippers on Friday.

The Rockets are going to have to start Tarik Black and Donatas Motiejunas against DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin. Howard does not have a timetable to return and his fantasy owners should have him firmly on their benches.
Nov 28 - 6:30 PM

David Lee (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Hornets, as expected.

He was doubtful headed into this one, so this news isn't very surprising. Lee is targeting a return for Tuesday vs. Orlando, or Thursday vs. New Orleans, but he'll likely be on a minutes restriction upon his return. Stay tuned.
