Latest Headlines

Anthony Davis (concussion) returned to action in the Hornets' 107-99 win over the Bobcats on Friday, scoring 23 points on 9-of-18 shooting (0-of-1 3PTs, 5-of-9 FTs) with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals, five blocks, and just one turnover in 37 minutes.

Davis got into a mini-scuffle with Byron Mullens and came out of it like a man possessed, securing his first career double-double and making anybody that panicked over his start look foolish. Ryan Anderson hit five triples and scored 25 points in the win.

Seth Curry (knee) will play against Indiana on Friday.

He's back after missing the last three due to a knee sprain. Curry does have a tougher spot for minutes with Devin Harris getting more run and Deron Williams playing some solid ball. Stephen's brother could be looking minutes around 20 in his first game back. He is worth a look in standard leagues, especially with the Mavs sliding in the standings.
Dec 9 - 6:56 PM

Norman Powell will be starting in place of DeMarre Carroll (rest) on Friday vs. Boston.

Powell has played relatively well when given extended minutes this season. In the four games he has started for Toronto, he is averaging 14.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 29.0 minutes. If you are looking for an inexpensive DFS option for Friday, Powell is certainly worth considering.
Dec 9 - 6:52 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) has been ruled out for Friday against the Celtics.

This was fully expected with Carroll playing on Thursday. He's played very well lately and his minutes are on the rise. Plus, the Raptors could drop the back-to-back limit. Norman Powell will likely get a start while Terrence Ross gets a hefty boost.
Dec 9 - 6:37 PM

Nene will play on Friday and wants to play on Saturday.

The Rockets are on a back-to-back set and have been limiting Nene. Montrezl Harrell has been solid, so it makes sense to rest Nene tomorrow. Clint Capela is having a big season and isn't affected here.
Dec 9 - 6:34 PM

Kevin Love (back) said he will "give it a try" against the Heat on Friday night.

He is going through his pre-game routine and it sounds like he'll be back out there. Love's back locked up on him on Wednesday and he's had a number of back problems before, so the Cavs may be careful with him. If he's limited, we'll see more of LeBron at the four with more of James Jones and the wings.
Dec 9 - 6:20 PM

J.R. Smith (knee) will not play against the Heat on Friday night.

It'll be Smith's second game out of the lineup due to the soreness in his knee. DeAndre Liggins will likely get the start again, but he only attempted two shots from the field on Wednesday. If Kevin Love (back) is also out, there should be plenty of minutes for the wings with LeBron James playing the four. Smith isn't a slam-dunk player to own in standard leagues, especially when he's cold and hurt.
Dec 9 - 5:53 PM

Nikola Vucevic (eye) will play against the Hornets on Friday night.

He will have protective goggles to cover his red right eye. Vucevic did play through his corneal abrasion on Wednesday and was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. He's fully expected to play near his 27.6 minutes per game from this year. Keep him active in a somewhat favorable matchup against the Hornets second unit.
Dec 9 - 5:37 PM

Troy Daniels (illness) is questionable to play against the Warriors on Saturday night.

He played 32 minutes on Thursday night and didn't appear to be ill, so he may have woke up sick today. Daniels wasn't affect by Toney Douglas making an impact, but a possible Vince Carter (hip) return could take shots and minutes away from him. If he's out, Troy Williams, Douglas, Andrew Harrison and Tony Allen could get a few extra minutes.
Dec 9 - 4:34 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) is probable to play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He had some swelling in his ankle and looked hobbled during pre-game warmups on Thursday, so the extra day seems to have made a difference. His return would bump Evan Turner back to the bench while Allen Crabbe would take a hit and Jake Layman would be out of the rotation. Harkless is exceeding expectations, but he's a hold in standard leagues.
Dec 9 - 4:17 PM

Al-Farouq Aminu (back contusion) is questionable to face the Pacers on Saturday.

He took a really bad fall in the last minute of Thursday's game. Aminu was grabbing his lower back for a while, so clearly the pain has lingered. If he's out, Ed Davis should get minutes in the mid 20s while Meyers Leonard could also benefit. Aminu has potential, but his awful offensive season has kept him from being an asset in most leagues.
Dec 9 - 4:15 PM

Blake Griffin (sore right knee) will be a game-time decision to face the Pelicans on Saturday.

If there is good news, this isn't the same leg that gave him problems last year. On the other hand, Griffin had a swelling issue with his right knee late last month. That Saturday game is the only game for the Clippers between Wednesday and Monday, so it makes sense to just rest him. If he is out, Paul Pierce, Mo Speights, Brandon Bass and the wings would get a few extra minutes. DeAndre Jordan also exploded for a 21-23 line in the last game Blake missed.
