Latest Headlines

Manu Ginobili (back spasms) will not play against the Thunder on Thursday.

Ginobili will miss his second game of the season for San Antonio. Back spasms can linger for most of the season and with the propensity Pop has to rest his players, Manu is likely going to rest a game here and there throughout the season. Danny Green is worth owning in majority of standard leagues.

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play on Wednesday.

It's the time of year when "flu-like symptoms" make their rounds throughout the NBA, and Sefolosha is the latest victim. He's playing a small role off the Hawks' bench with Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll both healthy, so his absence shouldn't cause any problems for fantasy owners.

Kevin McHale indicated that he doesn't expect Dwight Howard (knee) to play Friday.

Howard has not been ruled out but his status is bleak at the moment, as he's still recovering from a strained knee that prompted him to get platelet-rich plasma injections last week. McHale will likely want to see Dwight make it through a practice before playing him, so fantasy owners should have advance warning once he's ready to get back on the court. Tarik Black is a poor fantasy option as a fill-in center, and more minutes will be available for Donatas Motiejunas and Kostas Papanikolaou.

Bradley Beal will move into the Wizards' starting lineup on Wednesday, moving Garrett Temple to the bench.

Beal has come off the bench in all four of his games this season, averaging 15.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting, 1.5 threes, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals. It was only a matter of time before he displaced Temple and he should already be locked into all active fantasy lineups.
Nov 26 - 6:13 PM

Nerlens Noel is starting next to Michael Carter-Williams, Tony Wroten, Luc Mbah a Moute and Henry Sims against the Nets on Wednesday.

He came off the bench on Monday and he'll get to guard Kevin Garnett tonight. Noel is getting better with his shot selection, but he has really been beat up on the defensive side. His fantasy owners have seen a bump in output in his past two, so he is an option even on a busy night.
Nov 26 - 6:12 PM

Carmelo Anthony (back) will not play against the Mavericks on Wednesday.

He's likely going to miss some time here. Anthony hasn't dealt with any major back issues in his career, but it comes with the territory as an aging player. His fantasy owners should bench him and be prepared for him to be out. J.R. Smith will start in his place and is a fantasy option. Expect more shots to go to Iman Shumpert, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Amare Stoudemire tonight, too. The Knicks are planning on Melo flying to Oklahoma City on Friday, so he should be considered questionable.
Nov 26 - 6:09 PM

Brandon Jennings (thumb) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

It'll be D.J. Augustin in the starting lineup again tonight. He struggled in a favorable matchup against the Bucks on Tuesday, so a matchup with Chris Paul doesn't look great on the surface. Still, he saw 37 minutes last night, which makes him a fantasy option. Spencer Dinwiddie will get some run, too.
Nov 26 - 6:00 PM

Jameer Nelson (back spasms) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He is just getting over a hamstring injury and this injury is not considered serious. With Nelson and Raymond Felton (ankle) out, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris will get all of the minutes at point guard. Both guys are options in daily leagues with the defensive turnstile known as Jose Calderon.
Nov 26 - 5:57 PM

Tobias Harris (calf), Evan Fournier (quad) and Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) will all be active for Wednesday's home game vs. the Warriors.

Harris sat out Monday's game and missed part of Orlando's shootaround on Wednesday, but must have felt better when going through pre-game warmups. He'll start at SF and has been terrific when healthy this season, so fantasy owners should roll the dice on him in what should be an up-tempo game vs. Golden State.
Nov 26 - 5:15 PM

Carlos Boozer (shoulder) will start against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Well, the Ed Davis Revenge Game will have to be from a bench role. Boozer missed Sunday against the Nuggets and it sounds like he should see his normal minutes. He's still not going to be a great play tonight against a terrific interior defense. Jordan Hill also will not have to play 42 minutes, which matched a career high. On the other side of the matchup, Zach Randolph could have a big game against Boozer.
Nov 26 - 2:40 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Gay did not play on Tuesday due to his lingering tendinitis and the Kings are hopeful he can return on Friday. He's been dealing with this issue since last season and it's something he may have to manage throughout the year. Omri Casspi scored 22 points and has been very effective at getting to the rim, so look to use him in deep leagues and in daily formats.

A bruised right ankle leaves Isaiah Thomas questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

Uh oh. He suffered the injury on Monday and this should be a fast-paced game. If IT2 is out, both Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe should be in for a big night, while Gerald Green could see a boost in minutes, as well.
