Brook Lopez (mid-foot sprain) had an MRI exam on his foot, and he remains listed as day-to-day.

The MRI was negative. The Nets will treat Lopez with kid gloves after his foot and ankle issues last season, and while mid-foot sprains can be tricky, it's good news that both the MRI and initial X-rays came up negative. Lopez is almost certain to sit out on Tuesday, and for now, we're listing him as day-to-day beyond that. Owners should hold tight and keep Lopez on the bench, while Andray Blatche, who has averaged 17.0 points and 8.5 rebounds as a starter, will continue to fill in for him.

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.

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.

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.

Blake Griffin had one of his best games of the season against the Heat on Thursday with 26 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 12-of-18 from the field.

After a slow start, Griffin is starting to turn the corner over his last five with averages of 21.4 points, 7.8 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.2 blocks on 53.8 percent from the field. On the down side, he is just 58.8 percent from the line in that span and dropped his season foul shooting below 70 percent for the first time all year.

Updating a previous report, coach Kevin McHale is saying that the Rockets will probably be without Dwight Howard (knee) for Saturday's game vs. the Mavericks.

That means that Tarik Black will draw another start on Saturday, but he really doesn't do much aside from rebound. Dwight's minutes will likely be split up between Black, Donatas Motiejunas, and Kostas Papanikolaou. Kostas is coming off a 19-point game from Wednesday, and could make for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned for an official update on Dwight's status, but have your Plan B in place as it's looking like he'll be unable to go.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

With P.J. Hairston (ankle) also sidelined, Gerald Henderson will likely draw another start and get all the minutes he can handle. Henderson is coming off a disappointing two rebound, zero-point dud from Wednesday, but he'll look to bounce-back with a favorable matchup vs. Orlando. MKG is considered day-to-day, but remains without an official return date.
Nov 20 - 7:15 PM

Gary Neal (concussion) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

Neal still needs to pass the leagues' concussion protocol, but it's looking like he's very close to making a return. He's averaging 12.2 points and 1.2 three-pointers per game this season, so he's worth a look for owners seeking a 3-point specialist upon his return. Just know that he's also shooting 39.8 percent from the field.
Nov 20 - 7:08 PM

Matt Barnes will again draw the start on Thursday as the Clippers take on the Heat.

Barnes looks to have won his starting job back, and has scored in double figures in two of his last three outings. Hopefully he can continue his solid play tonight, as he has a favorable matchup vs. the Heat. He's worth a speculative add in standard leagues for his ability to contribute to each category on the stat sheet.
Nov 20 - 6:50 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Clippers.

This marks the fourth consecutive game Wade will be sidelined with this hamstring injury, and Mario Chalmers will continue to start as long as Wade is out. Chalmers has been great with the starting unit, averaging 20.0 points, 5.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game, and he should be in all active lineups on a night with just two games being played.
Nov 20 - 6:36 PM

Josh McRoberts (toe blister) will play Thursday vs. the Clippers.

McRoberts will likely be limited to 10-15 minutes, so he's not a very attractive plug-and-play option tonight. Shawne Williams has been fantastic as a starter with McRoberts sidelined, but he'll likely head to the bench once McBob is fully healthy, which will certainly hurt his fantasy value. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with McRoberts.
Nov 20 - 6:31 PM

Luol Deng will start Thursday vs. the Clippers, and Danny Granger will head to the bench.

Deng will have some increased opportunity tonight with Dwyane Wade (hamstring) sidelined, so get him active. Deng is averaging 14.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers on the year, and has a favorable matchup vs. the Clippers.
