Latest Headlines

Tornike Shengelia (thumb) will not play Wednesday against the Celitcs.

Avery Johnson announced that fellow import Mirza Teletovic will also be inactive Wednesday. Neither is fantasy relevant.

Nicolas Batum, who intends on playing Saturday, was in pain and grimacing due to a sore wrist in pre-game warmups.

He's on the active list and all signs are pointing to him playing, but either way, he'll likely be limited by his wrist and knee, so it would be wise to look in another direction in daily leagues.
Dec 20 - 5:50 PM

Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play until Christmas.

He is dealing with an injury to his pelvis and the Hornets won't have him for at least two more games following today. He should be considered questionable for Friday Dec. 26 against OKC. While he's out, Gary Neal, Gerald Henderson and Marvin Williams will benefit. None are worth owning in standard leagues, though.
Dec 20 - 5:19 PM

Eric Bledsoe was terrific against the Knicks during a 99-90 win on Saturday with 25 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He carved up the Knicks and they didn't have anyone to cover him. Bledsoe has not been affected by the return of Isaiah Thomas, averaging 15.8 points, 4.8 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 triples. He can be viewed as a top-10 fantasy shooting guard.
Dec 20 - 4:08 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points against the Knicks during a win on Saturday, making 7-of-12 from the field for 22 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He played 32 minutes and didn't turn the ball over. The Suns have a handful of big runs while Thomas is on the floor and he has now played at least 26 minutes in four of his five games since returning from injury. Thomas can fill it up with triples and free throws, which is enough to keep him owned in standard leagues despite the lower playing time.
Dec 20 - 3:59 PM

Jose Calderon matched his season high of 21 points against the Suns on Saturday with five rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers.

Finally. Calderon didn't make more than one triple in any of his previous five games and he didn't make above 47 percent from the field in any of those games either. The Knicks should give him more triples these days, so his owners can probably expect him to get it going in standard leagues.
Dec 20 - 3:42 PM

Wes Johnson (ankle) did not practice on Saturday and expects to play on Sunday against the Kings.

He suffered a mild tweak on Friday, but he still played 28 minutes and looked OK. Johnson has consistently seen playing time, but he is not getting many shots. His fantasy value will have a lot to do with his defense, so there is very little upside. He's still worth a look as a specialist.
Dec 20 - 3:31 PM

Chris Bosh (calf) will not play against the Celtics on Sunday.

He is also questionable to play on Tuesday and on Christmas. Bosh could be out until 2015, so his fantasy owners should plan on using someone else this week. With Bosh out, Shawne Williams, Luol Deng, Udonis Haslem, Chris Andersen and Hassan Whiteside will benefit. Although, Dwyane Wade will do just about everything, so there's very little fantasy impact as far as pickups go.
Dec 20 - 3:14 PM

Landry Fields was cleared for a concussion and was at practice on Saturday.

He needed stitches to his head from Friday and it appears he will be fine. Fields plays about 20 minutes per night and only has value in extremely deep leagues. James Johnson doesn't get a bump in fantasy value.
Dec 20 - 2:16 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.

This is a little bit of a surprise considering he was ruled out until a few hours before on Friday. Still, Durant's injury was scary and the Thunder are still going to have Russell Westbrook. Reggie Jackson will likely benefit most while the rest of the wing guys just help out.
Dec 20 - 2:09 PM

C.J. Watson is questionable for Saturday against the Nuggets with an illness.

He was probable as of Friday with a sinus infection, so a downgrade doesn't sound promising. Watson would be looking at a chance to start, but he hasn't been involved in the offense much since his return. If he's out, Donald Sloan would be worth a look.
Dec 20 - 2:02 PM

Brook Lopez (back) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Detroit Pistons.

The fact that he was ruled out so quick is a little worrying, but Lopez has been doing some conditioning work and even did some light basketball activities on Saturday. Lopez is expected to be evaluated on a daily basis so we should know more soon, while Mason Plumlee will continue to be a must-start player until he returns.
