Latest Headlines

Landry Fields (elbow) will dress on Tuesday, but Dwane Casey said he won't force feed him minutes.

With Terrence Ross and Alan Anderson playing well right now, the Raptors are going to work Fields back into the mix slowly. It's good news that he's back, but his progress can be monitored from the waiver wire for owners in standard formats.

Frank Kaminsky will likely return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Marvin Williams (knee) is expected to return to the court tonight, and he'll resume his spot in the starting five sending Kaminsky back to the bench. Kaminsky basically only had one solid game as a starter, and his value will take a pretty massive hit with the demotion to the second unit. Feel free to move on if you picked him up for his shot-term value sans Williams.

Nikola Jokic (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

Head coach Michael Malone said that the Nuggets will be taking a cautious approach in bringing back Jokic, so if there's any doubt about the health of his wrist, he'll likely be spending Wednesday's game on the sidelines. He's likely headed for a game-time call, but if he is able to return to the court tonight, Kenneth Faried's minutes will likely take a hit.

Tim Hardaway Jr. will move into the starting unit for Atlanta's next two games with Kent Bazemore (knee) on the shelf.

Hardaway Jr. tends to be inconsistent, although he has managed to produce late-round value over his past four outings with averages of 14.8 points, 2.3 dimes, 1.0 steal and 1.5 triples per contest on 48.0 percent shooting. The move into the starting five will only help him, but with relatively low upside, he's basically only worth a speculative add in deep leagues.
Dec 7 - 11:28 AM

Kent Bazemore (right knee soreness) has been ruled out for Atlanta's next two games, and Tim Hardaway Jr. will be drawing the start in his place.

This puts Bazemore on the sidelines for both Wednesday's game against the Heat, as well as Friday's game against the Bucks, but he should be able to return to the court for next Tuesday's game against the Magic. Bazemore has been struggling mightily over the past few weeks, so hopefully the time off to rest his knee will help him get things back on track. Hardaway Jr. is really inconsistent; so he's not really worth a standard league add.
Dec 7 - 11:17 AM

Marcus Smart will likely move into the starting unit for Wednesday's game against the Magic with Isiah Thomas (groin) unavailable.

Smart was spotted in a starters jersey at shootaround, so he'll very likely be drawing the start tonight. In his previous five starts this season, Smart has compiled averages of 10.0 points, 4.2 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.4 triples, 2.4 steals and just 1.4 turnovers per game, so he's certainly on the radar in daily leagues. Terry Rozier should also see a decent uptick in minutes off the bench.
Dec 7 - 11:11 AM

Isaiah Thomas (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Thomas flew back to Boston to receive treatment on his groin injury, and Marcus Smart was spotted sporting a starter jersey during shootaround, so it looks like Smart will be drawing the start tonight making him a reasonable low-budget DFS option. Avery Bradley and Al Horford will do the heavy lifting on offense tonight sans Thomas, and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in minutes. Groin injuries can linger, so Boston may want to take a cautious approach in bringing back Thomas. For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Friday's game against the Raptors.
Dec 7 - 11:04 AM

DeAndre Liggins will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Knicks with J.R. Smith (knee) unavailable.

This will be just the second start of Liggins' career, and while he will see some increased opportunity with the first unit tonight, Smith's minutes will likely be divvied up between Liggins, Iman Shumpert and Jordan McRae with their being no clear winner here.
Dec 7 - 10:38 AM

Marvin Williams (knee) said that he feels "totally ready to do" what he does, and barring a setback, he will play Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

"I don’t know about my normal 25 to 30 minutes, but I feel totally ready to do what I do," Williams said. "I can run and jump. My lungs might actually be the hardest thing to get back." He'll probably be closer to the 25-minute mark as his conditioning likely isn't where it needs to be after spending 10 days on the sidelines, so he's not necessarily a must-start option with 10 games being played tonight. He's also been in a bad shooting slump this season, limiting his standard league appeal.
Dec 7 - 9:25 AM

Derrick Rose (back spasms) is questionable to play Wednesday against the Cavs.

"It calmed down. It’s just spasms. Usually when you have back spasms or back problems, it comes from somewhere else — it could be hamstring, it could be groin, could be something else," Rose said. "[Tuesday night], my right side, my right leg, everything was fatigued and kind of quit. [Wednesday] we'll be able to find out what it is." Rose appears to be headed for a game-time call, but if he's out, Brandon Jennings will likely draw the start and he'd be an option in DFS.
Dec 7 - 9:16 AM

Rudy Gobert scored a career-high 22 points on 6-of-8 shooting in Tuesday's 112-105 win over the Suns.

The Stifle Tower was coming off a 14-point, 17-rebound and five-block effort against the Lakers the previous night and kept his foot on the gas pedal with 11 rebounds and four blocks Tuesday. He also hit 10-of-11 free throws on the night, bringing his season average up to 66.9 percent. You can check out his final dunk of the game in the link below.
Dec 6 - 11:51 PM

Zach Randolph returned from a seven-game absence on Tuesday vs. the 76ers, scoring 12 points with 14 rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes.

He was away from the team following the loss of his mother, so it was great to see him back out there. "It’s important to get back to working," Randolph said. "This is what my mother would want me to do. Don’t sit around and be sad. Go back to work. So I’m doing it for her. My mom was my father, too." Welcome back, Z-Bo. He's worth a look If you need points and rebounds, but his upside in standard leagues is low.
