Avery Bradley (shoulder) could see a few games in the D-League when he returns from injury, according to A. Sherrod Blakely.

Bradley is targeting a mid-December return and any stint in the D-League would be short lived. The Celtics are anxious for the second-year guard to re-join Rondo in their backcourt. That said, Bradley primarily serves a defensive role on the team and has limited fantasy value.

Thomas Robinson will start in place of Robin Lopez on Wednesday.

Coach Terry Stotts said he is going to mix up his lineups, so T-Rob is not likely going to draw all of the starts. Joel Freeland is expected to get some starts here and there, so keep an eye on him, as well. Chris Kaman should also get a handful of extra minutes and is the best pickup for owners needing a big man.

Shelvin Mack came off the bench and hit 7-of-8 shots, 6-of-6 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws to help the Hawks crush the Cavaliers 127-98 in Cleveland on Wednesday.

He finished with a career-high 24 points, two rebounds and three assists, taking over the backup point guard duties behind starter Dennis Schroder with Jeff Teague sidelined with a hamstring injury. Mack went on a second-quarter tear, scoring 17 points on 5-of-5 shooting from downtown and the Hawks never looked back in the Cavs' most lopsided loss of the season. If Teague is going to miss more time, Mack could continue to be worth a look. But once he's back on the court it should be Schroder getting the back up minutes, while Mack will watch from the bench. Mack came in averaging just 3.8 points per game on the season.

Dwight Howard (knee) will play against the nuggets on Wednesday.

He went through warmups and everything appears to be fine. Howard admitted he had some soreness following Saturday, but that's to be expected with how much time he missed. Fantasy owners can use him like they normally would. Expect the Nuggets to be in foul trouble tonight.
Dec 17 - 9:28 PM

C.J. Watson (illness) will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He missed shootaround due to an illness, but it sounds like he's good to go based on the starting distinction. Watson has been inconsistent on the season, averaging 11.2 points, 4.4 assists and 1.2 triples in 25.0 minutes. He's worth owning in deeper leagues until George Hill (knee) is back.
Dec 17 - 9:05 PM

Corey Brewer is back on the trade block with the Rockets and Cavs as the frontrunners to acquire him.

The Wolves should be getting their banged-up players back soon, so they don't need Brewer quite as much. He's playing around 32 minutes per game for the Wolves right now, so the team would look to guys like Shabazz Muhammad and Chase Budinger to help out. Brewer owners should plan on him losing a ton of fantasy value.

Jared Dudley will start in place of Jabari Parker on Wednesday.

He replaced Jabari when the injury happened, so this move is not a surprise. Dudley also played 20 minutes in the second half on Monday, so he should see a nice increase in playing time. He's worth a look in standard leagues, but there's no need to be too aggressive.
Dec 17 - 8:38 PM

Tony Allen (eye) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

He suffered a corneal abrasion to his right eye on Tuesday, and was forced from that game. There is no word as to how severe the issue is, but we will pass along updates as needed. The Grizzlies have yet to name who will start in his place, but Courtney Lee, Tayshaun Prince, and Vince Carter will also see their minutes increased.
Dec 17 - 7:12 PM

Chris Andersen will start at center in place of Udonis Haslem.

The move could stick with the Heat desperate up front. Andersen is an option as a deep-league specialist, but he is not going to have enough value in standard leagues. Luol Deng has actually been playing some power forward while Shawne Williams has struggled quite a bit.
Dec 17 - 6:50 PM

Mirza Teletovic will start for the Nets against the Raptors on Wednesday, replacing Kevin Garnett (rest).

Teletovic just returned from a hip injury on Tuesday, but should be in line for as many minutes as he can handle with KG out of the lineup. Teletovic should be owned in most leagues for his ability to knock down 3-pointers in a hurry, and he should also be considered as a strong plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Dec 17 - 6:40 PM

Kevin Garnett (rest) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He wasn't on the injury report earlier today, but the Nets will rest him in the second half of a back-to-back set. Garnett is going to sit out of a lot of back-to-backs, so it's going to be tough to trust him in standard leagues. Look for Mason Plumlee and Mirza Teletovic to benefit.
Dec 17 - 6:38 PM

David Lee (hamstring) and Andrew Bogut (knee) will not play on Thursday against the Thunder.

There is still no timetable for a return on Lee and the Warriors are in no rush to bring him back. He took part in some 3-on-3 at practice last week, but the team is unlikely to give him regular minutes until 2015. He's a low-upside stash in standard leagues. Draymond Green and Marreese Speights are good to go.
