Latest Headlines

Anthony Davis returned from an 11-game absence with an ankle injury for 13 points, eight rebounds, three steals and three blocks in 25 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's loss to the Wizards.

He's back and looked very good tonight, and should only get better the more he plays, and when he returns to the starting five. Barring a setback, make sure he's in your lineup going forward.

Bradley Beal looked great against the Nuggets during a 92-85 win on Thursday, scoring 26 points with three rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He is playing the best ball of his career right now. Over his last 10, Beal has a fantastic 61.4 true shooting percentage and a 27.4 usage rate in his 37.8 minutes per game. He has been awesome as a shooter, turning in a 60.5 effective field goal percentage on his jumpers in that span. As long as he stays healthy, the breakout looks for real. He's been a third-round value over his last 10.

Al-Farouq Aminu played 24 minutes and hit 2-of-9 shots for five points, 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals on Thursday, before leaving late with a back injury.

Aminu took a very hard fall and landed flat on his lower back. He hobbled to the sideline, but was clearly in pain. The Blazers don't play again until Sunday at Indy, so there's a chance he'll be feeling better by then. But it also wouldn't be surprising to miss a game or two. Watch for updates on his status throughout the weekend. Aminu was just getting back from a calf injury and is still on a minutes limit, so his new injury just adds some fuel to the fire. If Aminu misses time, guys like Moe Harkless (ankle), Ed Davis and Evan Turner all benefit.

Draymond Green turned his left ankle and went to the locker room in the third quarter on Thursday.

Shelvin Mack drove to the basket and Stephen Curry backed into Green. The contact caused Green to roll his ankle on the floor and he was on the court for about 30 seconds. After walking it off for about 20 seconds, Green walked slowly to the locker room under his own power. The injury didn't look bad, but he may be done for the night. This is the same left ankle that cost him time earlier this season.

DeMarre Carroll played 33 minutes and had 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on 3-of-7 shooting in Thursday's 124-110 win over Minnesota.

Carroll is scheduled to miss Friday's game against the Celtics for a rest. He's not having a great season, but once he finally gets up to speed he should be a solid fantasy option. Now looks like a good time to buy low on DC. With Carroll out on Friday, look for Terrence Ross, Norman Powell and Patrick Patterson to both step up in his absence tomorrow.
Dec 8 - 9:56 PM

Kenneth Faried was a DNP-CD against the Wizards on Thursday.

From starter on Wednesday to out of the rotation on Thursday. Faried has been in coach Mike Malone's doghouse before, but this time it may be for a decent amount of time. The odds of Faried getting traded may be at an all-time high with guys like Juancho Hernangomez currently ahead of him. He may be back in the rotation at some point, but his short-term outlook looks bleak. He's a drop candidate in standard leagues.
Dec 8 - 9:43 PM

Langston Galloway received five stitches above his eye and has returned.

He was cut open after Joel Embiid accidentally shouldered him. Galloway should be ready to roll tonight.
Dec 8 - 9:07 PM

Tony Parker (left knee) will start against the Bulls on Thursday night.

This is a mild surprise for Parker, who missed Tuesday's action. Parker likely won't play many minutes in his return to the lineup and he'l certainly miss more games going forward.
Dec 8 - 8:21 PM

Evan Turner will start for Moe Harkless (ankle) against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

Well, just when it made sense for Allen Crabbe to start, coach Terry Stotts will start Turner. Both Turner and Crabbe should benefit tonight.
Dec 8 - 7:52 PM

Marc Gasol (groin) will start against the Blazers on Thursday night.

He gets an outstanding matchup tonight against a sub-par Blazers interior defense and rebounding. Gasol may have a slight hit in minutes, so he's a risky DFS play even when it's not on a back-to-back set. He's an obvious start in season long leagues.
Dec 8 - 7:45 PM

Shelvin Mack, Dante Exum, Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert are likely starting on Thursday against the Warriors.

The Jazz are really, really shorthanded, especially on the wings. Expect to see a Joe Johnson throwback game while Mack should get plenty of shots.
Dec 8 - 7:32 PM

Allen Crabbe is listed as the starter for Thursday against the Grizzlies.

Unless coach Terry Stotts goes into one of his mad scientist modes, this should stick. Crabbe has played very well lately and turned in a gem with 17 points on Monday and a solid 14-point game on Wednesday. Expect him to get 30-35 minutes tonight while Evan Turner backs him up.
