Tony Parker (flu) will not play on Saturday, and Patty Mills will take his spot in the starting lineup.

Mills can fill it up quickly, so don't be surprised if he has a nice scoring night in Parker's absence. The Spurs next game is Tuesday vs. the Lakers, and presumably Parker will be healthy enough to play by then.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Kevin Durant (ankle) is doubtful to play on Saturday vs. the Pelicans.

This means the Warriors weren't just being cautious on the front end of a back-to-back set. Kerr added that Durant probably shouldn't have played against OKC on Wednesday, so maybe he tweaked the injury. If KD is held out on Saturday, his next chance to play would be on Monday vs. the Kings. Look for Omri Casspi to pick up another start vs. the Pelicans.

Nikola Jokic had a feast in a 104-92 win over Memphis on Friday, racking up 28 points with 13 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, two triples and five turnovers.

Jokic hit 11-of-17 shots, but struggled a bit from the line (4-of-6 FTs). He was on the injury report after tweaking his right ankle on Wednesday, but his status for this game wasn't in any real doubt and it's a great sign that he played 36 minutes. Jokic's usage rate climbs from 20.1 to 24.0 with Paul Millsap (wrist) off the court, so his fantasy owners can expect more monster lines like this one going forward.

Marc Gasol dished out a career-high 14 assists in Friday's loss to Denver, finishing with 15 points, six rebounds, two steals and one triple in 38 minutes.

Gasol has been running the offense quite a bit with Mike Conley (Achilles) banged up and has now recorded four or more assists in each of his last six games. He hit 5-of-13 shots and 4-of-4 free throws, and he was forced to play 38 minutes with Brandan Wright (groin) missing another game. After a hot start to the season, Memphis has now lost seven straight games. If the Grizzlies don't turn their season around, Gasol will be a popular name at the trade deadline.

JaMychal Green hit all nine of his shots and scored a season-high 21 points in Friday's 104-92 loss to the Nuggets.

This was the fourth game of his career with 21 or more points, so don't get used to offensive explosions like these. Green added three boards, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes, giving him averages of 12.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.0 triples since he returned from his ankle injury on Nov. 15. With Brandan Wright (groin) on the shelf, Green will likely continue to see 30+ minutes which makes him worth owning as a low-end big.

Despite Russell Westbrook's 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists, the Thunder lost a 99-98 game to the Pistons on Friday night.

Westbrook finished with three steals, five turnovers, and just one 3-pointer (out of 10) on an abysmal 10-of-29 from the floor. The triple-double outings are old news at this point, but OKC figuring out a way to win down the stretch is a very real and evolving storyline. Westbrook, who came into Friday night shooting just 32.1% from distance, might want to think about using his explosive athleticism to get to the cup more often.

Victor Oladipo (bruised right knee) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Saturday.

He banged his knee in the fourth quarter and went to the locker room for just a couple minutes. Oladipo did walk to the table and it looked like he was going to check in because he wasn't in warmups or anything, but maybe he just wanted to talk to coach Nate McMillan. This doesn't sound serious and there's no word of him being re-evaluated. If he can't go, Lance Stephenson, Cory Joseph and Bojan Bogdanovic will likely pick up the extra wing minutes.
Nov 24 - 11:46 PM

Fred VanVleet erupted for 16 points, five rebounds, four dimes, three steals, two 3-pointers and no turnovers over 28.5 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pacers.

VanVleet shot 6-of-10 from the field and was plus-18 in his minutes, and the young point guard has really shown something since Delon Wright (shoulder) hit the sidelines. Per TSN's Josh Lewenberg: In five games since Wright was injured, VanVleet has averaged 10 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and just 1.2 turnovers on 49% shooting and is a plus-44. Not bad, kid. Not bad.
Nov 24 - 11:36 PM

Tyus Jones was a bright spot for the Wolves on Friday with eight points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals in 33 minutes, making 3-of-6 shots in a loss to the visiting Heat.

Jones started the second half with Aaron Brooks struggling and Jeff Teague (sore Achilles) out of commission. Teague's injury came out of the blue a few days after a 22-point, 11-assist performance, so presumably he's just day-to-day. Most owners should leave Jones on the waiver wire unless that injury assessment changes, but he's a viable 'just-in-case' pickup in deep leagues.
Nov 24 - 11:25 PM

Jonas Valanciunas bottomed out with six points, five rebounds, three turnovers and nothing else in just 14 minutes of action on Friday in a loss to the Pacers.

Woof. Valanciunas took a seat in favor of Pascal Siakam to begin the second half, and JV has now played 20 or fewer minutes in six of Toronto's last seven outings. At this point, anyone expecting something drastically different than what we've seen needs to reexamine the evidence. So long as he's in Toronto, Valanciunas will not be worth the headache. We'll see how the Raptors play their hand on Saturday vs. Dewayne Dedmon and Atlanta.
Nov 24 - 11:21 PM

Courtney Lee scored a season-high 26 points during a 116-104 win on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists, one block, no turnovers and two 3-pointers.

He was 11-of-14 from the field in this game with most of his damage coming in the first half with 19 points. Lee is in one of his best grooves of the season over his last five, averaging 14.6 points, 5.4 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 treys. He should be owned in all standard leagues.
Nov 24 - 11:15 PM

Jarrett Jack matched his career-high 14 dimes against the Hawks on Friday, adding 10 points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Revenge game for waiving him last preseason? Jack has picked up his playing time lately as Frank Ntilikina has lost some playing time. The veteran point guard has been decent in dimes with 7.0 per game over his last five, but he's not really doing much else.
