Tony Allen (illness) left Friday morning's shootaround early, and remains questionable to suit up vs. the Celtics.

If Allen is unable to go Vince Carter would likely see an increase in his minutes. Carter was able to play 27 minutes off the bench during his last outing, but was only managed seven points, three assists, and one three-pointer. However, he does have a favorable matchup today vs. the Celtics, so he may be worth the risk in daily leagues.

Devin Harris (lower right leg soreness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

J.J. Barea, Jameer Nelson, and Monta Ellis will see their minutes increased with Harris sidelined, and Barea could make for a nice low-budget buy in daily leagues. He's coming off a 14-point, six assist outing vs. the Wizards, and has a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers.

Marco Belinelli (groin) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Belinelli is confined to a bench role, and is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers on the year, so his value is limited to deep leagues. If he plays, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green would see a slight reduction in minutes, but Belinelli won't have a large enough impact to hurt either of their values.

Courtney Lee (illness) went through shootaround and said that he'll play Friday vs. the Celtics.

With Tony Allen (illness), Beno Udrih (illness), and Quincy Pondexter (illness) listed as questionable for this one, Lee could see some heavy minutes tonight in a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics. Stay tuned.

DeMarre Carroll (groin) will be active for Friday's game, and all signs are pointing towards him making the start.

Carroll also implied that he may be on a minutes restriction tonight saying, "I’m going to come out kind of quickly," so he's not as attractive of an option on a busy Friday night. Thabo Sefolosha will head back to the bench upon Carroll's return, and he can be cut in all leagues.
Nov 21 - 12:11 PM

Evan Fournier (heel) said that he thinks he'll be able to suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

This isn't official, but things are looking positive for Fournier. If he does suit up, Willie Green would head back to the bench where he would go back to being irrelevant in all fantasy leagues. Stay tuned for an official update as we draw closer to Friday's tip.

Tony Wroten has been moved into a sixth man role for the 76ers with the return of Michael Carter-Williams, but that doesn't mean head coach Brett Brown doesn't want to play the two together for extended stretches.

"I think for balance purposes, that’s how it needs to be," Brown said of his decision to bring Wroten off the bench. "Because [Wroten and MCW are] our best players, they need to be on the court… Inevitably it’s the direction we’re going to have to grow." Wroten's numbers are down since MCW's return, but he was still able to score 21 points off the bench, to go with seven assists and a steal during Wednesday's loss. His value will take a bit of a hit coming off the bench, but Wroten is still going to be worth owning in standard leagues. Just know that he's shooting 42.0 percent from the field, and 62.0 percent from the charity stripe on 7.2 attempts per game.

Alec Burks was challenged by head coach Quin Snyder recently to be more aggressive on the boards, and Burks responded with back-to-back double-digit rebounding games.

"Coach really challenged me one day in Toronto [to grab more rebounds]. Man to man, had a talk," Burks said. "He challenged me and I took that challenge." Burks finished Saturday's game vs. Toronto with 10 points and 10 rebounds, and followed up that performance by going for 20 points and 14 rebounds vs. the Thunder on Tuesday. Burks is averaging 14.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.0 three-pointer per game this year, and if he could just up his shooting percentage a bit (42.7 percent on the year), he'd quickly become a top-100 player.

Darren Collison played terrific ball on both ends of the floor against the Bulls on Thursday during a 103-88 win with 17 points, six rebounds, 12 assists, one steal, one block and one turnover.

The Kings had a season-high 26 assists as a team tonight and had six players in double figures. They still rank 27th in the NBA for assists per game, but at least it's a step up from last in 2013-14. Collison has been a steal for his fantasy owners as a top-50 player despite sub-par shooting and it's become abundantly clear he has no competition for his starter's minutes.
Nov 21 - 2:03 AM

X-rays were negative on Kirk Hinrich's chest and he was diagnosed with a contusion following Thursday's game against the Kings.

He didn't play at the end of the game, but that doesn't necessarily mean his injury had anything to do with it. Hinrich finished with nine points, three rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes. If he is going to miss time, Aaron Brooks would almost become a must add as the only healthy point guard who is in the rotation. E'Twaun Moore would also get in the rotation.
Nov 21 - 1:22 AM

Chris Paul had just one turnover in Thursday's 110-93 win over the Heat to go with 26 points, two rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 8-of-13 from the field.

The Clippers put up 39 points in the first quarter with a magnificent offensive rating of 169.6. They were first in the NBA in that category last year, but they only rank sixth so far this year. As for Paul, he's been the No. 3 player in fantasy leagues so far on the season -- fitting for CP3.
