Confirming previous reports, Jason Kidd (back) will not play vs. Phoenix on Sunday.

Kidd worked out before the game and Mike Woodson said he won't need to practice before returning, but his return date is up in the air. The schedule-makers gave him a break, at least, as New York doesn't play again until Wednesday in Charlotte.

Goran Dragic looked terrific in his return against the Hornets on Wednesday, scoring 20 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He missed the previous two games due to a strained back and was his aggressive self tonight. Dragic was really turning it on while Isaiah Thomas was out earlier this month and that might be due to his mentality and not because of the personnel. He should be able to flirt with top-50 value.

Andre Drummond went off for 19 points, a season-high 24 rebounds, four steals and three blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.

His early-season slump is officially over as he posted one of the best big-man lines of the season. Yeah, he hit just 1-of-6 free throws, but you knew that was part of the deal when you drafted him. Drummond is averaging 16.4 points, 15.2 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.4 blocks over his last five games.

Multiple sources are reporting that the Mavs and Celtics are having serious discussions about a trade that would include Brandan Wright going to Boston for Rajon Rondo.

Wright had 10 points, five rebounds and three blocks in Wednesday's win over the Magic, but it's hard to say what would happen to his fantasy value if he goes to Boston. Tyler Zeller is starting, Kelly Olynyk is playing at a high level and Jared Sullinger can also play center. In other words, a move to Boston may not be a bad thing for Wright, but we doubt it makes him a must-own player, either, as long as the aforementioned bigs remain in Beantown.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) will not return to Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

The Bucks are not having a good week. Jabari Parker tore his ACL on Monday and Antetokounmpo could be looking at some time on the sidelines. He was playing terrific in this game, finishing with 10 points, six rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes. Khris Middleton started the second half in his place and is worth a long look in standard leagues.

The Mavericks have emerged as the frontrunners for Rajon Rondo and could offer at least one first-round pick along with Brandan Wright to get him.

The Rondo rumors are flying around from all different angles, so it's sounding like a deal could be in the works. There is nothing imminent, but Rondo owners can probably start assuming he's headed to Dallas at some point -- Jameer Nelson did not score tonight. The Kings, Knicks and Rockets are also in the mix, though. Stashing Marcus Smart is making more sense right now.

Kelly Olynyk came off the bench and hit 6-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes on Wednesday.

Olynyk isn't starting for Boston, but he should be treated like he is by fantasy owners. He's averaging 16.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers in 29 minutes over his last five games, and is clearly a better option than Jared Sullinger or Tyler Zeller right now. However, that could change, as the Celtics are said to be in serious talks with the Mavericks in a deal that would send Rajon Rondo to the Mavs for C Brandan Wright. If that happens, the Celtics will truly have a logjam in the middle, if they don't already.

The Mavericks and Rockets are interested in trading for Rajon Rondo.

Both teams make plenty of sense with Dallas as a much better fit. The Rockets have James Harden as their maestro while Patrick Beverley is a near perfect fit for his defense and improved shooting. Dallas also has Monta Ellis, so it's not like they're a tremendous fit either. Rondo would lose some fantasy value with a move. If you're in a deep league, it makes some sense to stash Marcus Smart (Achilles).

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.
Dec 17 - 9:59 PM

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.
