Tyler Zeller has a concussion and fractured cheekbone, which will keep him out indefinitely.

Zeller took a blow to the head on Monday, and after being reexamined on Tuesday, it was determined he had a concussion and a facial fracture. There is no timetable for his return and he is now out indefinitely. Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao are locked into major minutes as the starters in Cleveland, with guys like Samardo Samuels and Jon Leuer picking up a bit more playing time.

Nikola Jokic (wrist) is expected to be out at least the next three games.

Dec 3 - 7:47 PM

Nikola Mirotic is starting for Dwyane Wade (rest) against the Mavs on Saturday.

He erupted in his last start with 15 points and 15 boards against the Lakers. The matchup isn't quite as good and Mirotic is wildly inconsistent, but he's certainly capable of putting up another nice line. He's a prime DFS option tonight and is a low-end hold in standard leagues.
Dec 3 - 7:06 PM

Larry Nance (right knee contusion) will not play against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

The Lakers will be short in the forward department, so there may be a few extra minutes going to Thomas Robinson and Luol Deng. They could also get away with some smaller lineups against the thin Grizzlies squad. Nance is only day-to-day.
Dec 3 - 6:42 PM

DeMarre Carroll is back in the starting lineup against the Hawks on Saturday.

Revenge game? He had the night off against the Lakers on Friday, which was not a surprise with Carroll still limited on back-to-back sets. He's played very well lately, so he's worth a pickup in shallower leagues. Norman Powell will move to the bench.
Dec 3 - 6:36 PM

Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Dwight Howard will start against the Raptors on Saturday.

Coach Mike Budenholzer benched his starters to start the second half on Friday due to their woeful -51.3 net rating in the loss. Muscala is the only change for Thabo Sefolosha, which makes sense against the Raptors. Korver is only a borderline hold in fantasy and certainly could use a good game tonight.
Dec 3 - 6:14 PM

Nik Stauskas will start for Robert Covington (knee) against the Celtics on Saturday.

Coach Brett Brown said he wants another ball-handler out there, which may have to do with Joel Embiid being out of the lineup tonight. Sauce Castillo has cooled off considerably, making just 38.1 percent from the field. Although, the uptick in assists with 3.6 per game in his last five may be the reason he starts. He's a speculative add in competitive leagues while Hollis Thompson should benefit as well.
Dec 3 - 5:50 PM

Joel Embiid (rest) will not play against the Celtics on Saturday.

It's scheduled rest on the back-to-back set for The Process. He has seen his minutes limit rise to 28 and it's starting to feel like his back-to-back restriction may not be going on all season. With Embiid out, a non-restricted Jahlil Okafor will get most of the minutes with Richaun Holmes backing him up.
Dec 3 - 5:49 PM

Robert Covington (knee) and Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play against the Celtics on Saturday.

Covington suffered a knee sprain on Friday and did not return. He's off to a really bad start on the offensive side, making just 30.9 percent from the field. On the other band, his defense has kept him in the lineup, so he should have his job once he's healthy again. There's no word on the severity of his injury, so he's a hold in most leagues for now. Nik Stauskas will start while Hollis Thompson also benefits here.
Dec 3 - 5:49 PM

Mike Muscala is listed as the starter at power forward against the Raptors on Saturday.

In case you missed it, Paul Millsap (hip) is out again tonight. After the Hawks were crushed in the first half on Friday with Thabo Sefolosha at the four, Muscala is the favorite to start. He was awful with no points in his last start on Wednesday, but he should have a great chance to perform tonight.
Dec 3 - 5:30 PM

Isaiah Whitehead, Sean Kilpatrick, Bojan Bogdanovic, Anthony Bennett and Brook Lopez will start against the Bucks on Saturday.

The Nets are going to keep Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's minutes in check, so they'll start Kilpatrick for another game. With Trevor Booker out, the Nets defense will have its hands full tonight against the lengthy Bucks squad. Kilpatrick is worth owning in standard leagues right now.

Dec 3 - 4:21 PM

Anthony Bennett is listed as the starter against the Bucks on Saturday with Trevor Booker (illness) out.

It makes some sense because the Nets are really thin at power forward. Bennett hasn't been in the rotation, but he may get minutes over 20 in the first unit. Justin Hamilton figures to get several minutes off the bench behind Bennett and Lopez, so he's worth a look in DFS as well.
