Latest Headlines

Tyreke Evans (knee) is expected to play on Wednesday against the Raptors.

Owners will still need to check back for confirmation that he'll be in the lineup, but Keith Smart anticipates him playing. Evans has been going well recently, averaging 17.3 points on 52.5 percent shooting over his last eight games.

E'Twaun Moore (toe) is unlikely to play Saturday vs. the Clippers.

Per coach Alvin Gentry, both E'Twaun Moore and Jrue Holliday are unlikely to play on Saturday. Thus, there will be plenty of playing time up for grabs in the Pels backcourt. Tim Frazier will likely start at the point. Buddy Hield has started at shooting guard in each of the last two games, but it has been Langston Galloway that has been the more reliable fantasy player. Galloway is averaging 22.5 points and 4.5 treys over the Pels last two contests.

Derrick Rose (sore lower back) will not play Friday vs. the Kings.

This will be the second game Rose has missed due to the back injury he suffered Monday. The good news is that Rose is traveling with the Knicks on their current road trip, which would seemingly indicate he is close to returning to action. Brandon Jennings will get the start at point guard. He makes for a solid DFS play Friday in Sacramento. Jennings had 16 points, four rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes in a starting role on Wednesday. He'll likely play more minutes on Friday, assuming the game isn't a blowout, as NY has very little depth behind Jennings at point guard.

Paul Millsap (hip) will play Friday vs. the Bucks.

Millsap has played in two straight games and looked good doing so, averaging 22.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 1.5 blocks. Millsap admitted earlier this week that he is currently playing through pain, but should obviously still be locked into starting lineups.

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will not play Saturday in San Antonio.

We seem to get frequent reports that Lin is progressing and looking good in practice, only to be told that he is not yet ready to play in games. Throughout his career, Lin has been hesitant to play unless he is 100% healthy. This seems to currently be the case. If you have been patient and held onto Lin this long, it certainly makes sense to hold him on your roster and hope he returns sooner rather than later. His fantasy upside remains considerable as the best point guard on the Nets roster

Derrick Rose (sore lower back) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

Rose tweaked his back in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's game in Orlando. He sat out Wednesday's contest vs. the Cavs. Rose is traveling with the team, so it's a good sign that he is close to returning to the lineup. The team may until they see how his back responds to pre-game warmups. Check back for an update. If Rose does not play, Brandon Jennings will start and would be an intriguing DFS option on Friday.

Rodney McGruder (ankle) is expected to play Friday vs. the Cavs.

McGruder twisted his ankle on Wednesday and was listed as questionable for Friday. However, McGruder vowed he would be ready for Friday. The Heat need him, as they are down to just nine healthy bodies. He has played a ton of minutes since being inserted into the starting lineup once the injuries hit the Heat. Over Miami's last eight games, McGruder is averaging 8.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 triples in 33.7 minutes per game

Josh Richardson (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Cavs, but "might" play Saturday in Chicago.

Richardson re-joined the team on Friday in the middle of their road trip, so there was some hope he would suit up in Cleveland. However, Coach Spo told reporters that Richardson won't return to the lineup for Friday's contest. Nonetheless, the fact that Richardson flew out to join the team is obviously a positive sign. Per the team, he will be re-evaluated in hopes that he can play some minutes on Saturday

Channing Frye has been excused from the team for personal reasons and will miss Friday's game vs. the Heat and Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Frye has had to endure an extremely difficult couple of months, as he lost both his mother and father. Kevin Love (back spasms) was surprisingly listed as listed as questionable for Friday night. If Love can't play, the Cavs will be extremely shorthanded at power forward. As a result, Tristan Thompson would likely play more minutes than usual. Richard Jefferson, Mike Dunleavy and possibly Chris Anderson could all see extended action as well.
Dec 9 - 11:09 AM

J.R. Smith (knee) is questionable for Friday's game vs. Miami.

Smith missed Wednesday's matchup with the Knicks after hyperextending his left knee on Monday. DeAndre Liggins made his first career start in place of Smith vs. the Knicks and played 20 minutes. Iman Shumpert came off the bench and played 24 minutes. It is safe to assume a similar distribution of minutes on Friday if Smith doesn't suit up.
Dec 9 - 10:57 AM

Kevin Love (back spasms) is questionable for Friday's game vs. Miami.

This is the first we are hearing of a back issue for Love, or any injury for that matter this season. He has been enjoying a terrific start to the 2016-17 campaign, averaging 21.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.7 treys. Stay tuned for an update, as we should soon find out if this is a serious issue. Channing Frye (personal) has already been ruled out of both Friday and Saturday's game, so the Cavs will have a big hole at power forward if Love can't play.
Dec 9 - 10:55 AM

Numerous outlets are reporting that the Rockets and Donatas Motiejunas' have agreed to a new deal.

It appears the drama is finally over. Motiejunas' deal with the Rockets is worth $31 million if hits no bonuses, $35 million if hits all likely bonuses and $37 million if hits every possible bonus. Although he has an intriguing upside, Motiejunas will only likely see limited minutes off the bench in Houston, especially initially as he works his way back into game shape.
