Updating a previous item, Nene (foot) appears unlikely to play on Wednesday.

He's still officially a game-time decision, and although Nene said that there is a "chance" he could play, he also added that "if you ask now, I'd say no." If Nene is still on the shelf for Wednesday's game, Emeka Okafor and Kevin Seraphin should be the biggest beneficiaries with Trevor Booker (knee) also a game-time decision.

Tobias Harris scored just two points on 0-of-7 shooting in Tuesday's blowout loss to Denver, adding eight rebounds, one assist and one steal.

After the game, coach Stan Van Gundy called out Harris, Andre Drummond, Reggie Jackson and Avery Bradley after Detroit's seventh straight loss. "In my opinion, these are our four best players. They have to play better," SVG said. "If you want the money, want the credit when things go well, you have to have some accountability." SVG added that this loss was an "embarrassment, so fantasy owners should be on the lookout for any potential lineup changes. Harris was averaging 18.0 points in 35.2 minutes in his previous six games, so he should bounce back from this dud on Thursday vs. the Hawks.

LeBron James torched the Hawks for 25 points and tied his career high with 17 assists as the Cavaliers trounced the Hawks 123-114 on Tuesday.

The game wasn't nearly as close as the final score indicates and James had his way with Atlanta, although several Hawks had pretty big nights too. LeBron hit 11-of-13 shots, two 3-pointers, and added seven rebounds and two steals to his ridiculous stat line. James Harden made a strong move in the MVP race on Monday night, but LeBron may have countered it tonight.

Trey Lyles stayed hot on Tuesday vs. the Pistons with 20 points on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting.

He also added four boards and three triples in 27 minutes. Lyles scored 10 of his points in garbage time, so take this line with a grain of salt. He was likely on a lot of watch lists tonight after scoring a career-high 25 points on Sunday with five triples, and while he's not quite on the radar in 12-team leagues, he's worth a look in deeper formats at least until Nikola Jokic (ankle) returns. He'll have a tough matchup against Boston on Wednesday.

Kent Baszemore hit 7-of-13 shots and a career-high 6-of-10 3-pointers for 20 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes of Tuesday's 123-114 loss to the Cavaliers.

Bazemore had 19 points and a similar stat line on Saturday, got into foul trouble and fizzled on Sunday, and then came back today for one of the best lines of his career. He's pretty much been hit-or-miss all season long, which is exactly what he's been in the month of December, as well. If he was not owned in your league tonight, someone Is going to pick him after this one. And he should be owned, despite his inconsistency.

Jamal Murray led the Nuggets to a 103-84 win over the Pistons on Tuesday, scoring a game-high 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting.

The Nuggets were using Murray off the ball a ton tonight and were playing to his strengths as a catch-and-shoot player. He had 13 points alone in the third quarter to put this game out of reach, adding four rebounds, three assists, one block and four 3-pointers. He's been all over the place this season, but nights like this show why he's worth being patient with. He may have some more touches coming his way as well with Will Barton picking up a lower back contusion.
Dec 12 - 9:49 PM

Taurean Prince caught fire on Tuesday and hit 8-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for a career-high 24 points, seven rebounds and six assists, and also hit 6-of-6 free throws in a loss to the Cavaliers.

Prince has been cruising, hitting double figures in scoring in eight of his last nine games and is averaging 17.5 points, 6.8 boards, 3.8 assists, 0.8 blocks and 1.8 3-pointers over his last four games. It's just too bad the Hawks are struggling and never really had a chance to win on the best night of Prince's career. He should be owned everywhere.
Dec 12 - 9:44 PM

Kenneth Faried picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

Faried has been outplaying Mason Plumlee lately and was coming off two straight games with 30+ minutes, but you never know what coach Mike Malone is going to do with his rotations on any given night. This time around, Plumlee had a nice double-double and was a +29 in his 29 minutes, but it does help Faried's case that Darrell Arthur was exposed as the backup center by Boban Marjanovic. With Nikola Jokic (ankle) still out, Faried's owners should expect to see him back in the rotation on Wednesday vs. Boston.
Dec 12 - 9:39 PM

Richaun Holmes is starting next to Joel Embiid on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

The Wolves start a traditional lineup up front with Taj Gibson next to Karl-Anthony Towns, so while this may be a matchup move, Holmes has certainly earned his minutes lately. He's also looked really strong next to Embiid for stretches this season. Holmes is already an elite handcuff for Embiid's owners, but if he can keep a consistent spot in the rotation he'll have some solid standalone value as well.
Dec 12 - 9:16 PM

Will Barton left Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons with a lower back contusion.

He checked out with 4:06 left in the fourth quarter and never returned, but the Nuggets had a comfortable double-digit lead. Barton played 34 minutes tonight, hitting 2-of-5 shots for four points, 10 assists, six rebounds, one block and one steal. The Nuggets play on Wednesday vs. Boston on the second night of a back-to-back set, so hopefully Barton will be ready for that one. If not, we should see more of promising second-year wing Malik Beasley.
Dec 12 - 9:06 PM

Robert Covington (lower back contusion) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

RoCo will miss his second game in a row, but he's likely going to return any day now considering he was a game-time call. With RoCo out, the 76ers will start a big lineup of Ben Simmons, J.J. Redick, Dario Saric, Richaun Holmes and Joel Embiid.
Dec 12 - 9:05 PM

Joel Embiid (back) is "available" to play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

Wolves reporter Jerry Zgoda said Embiid is "available," while Philly reporter Keith Pompey has confirmed that Embiid will play. With about 20 minutes before tip-off, we haven't heard anything about any restrictions. Fire The Process up in all lineups. Amir Johnson will head back to the bench.
