Andrew Bynum (knees) will meet with his personal orthopedist on Thursday to determine whether or not he can be cleared for basketball activities.

This is just a reminder that we'll know more about Bynum's status after the examination. He's reportedly pain-free and is feeling the best he has in quite some time, but he's still got a few hurdles to clear before anyone gets too excited.

Myles Turner broke out for a season-high 25 points during Sunday's road victory, making 11-of-14 shots with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 32 minutes.

Since returning from a concussion and neck injury in early November, Turner was averaging a modest 12.0 points, 7.3 boards, 1.1 assists, 0.6 threes and 0.4 blocks. He also posted 2.5 blocks per game in that span, which salvaged his value despite atypically poor percentages -- 41.6% from the field and 70.8% from the FT line. It was only a matter of time before he got back on track as an elite big man, and the buy-low window just slammed shut.

The Pacers won in Miami on Sunday, aided by Bojan Bogdanovic's season-high 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting, including a 6-of-10 mark from downtown.

Indiana has won two consecutive games, improving their record to 9-8, which puts them in the middle of the Eastern Conference teams chasing Detroit (10-5), Toronto (11-5) and Boston (15-2). Bogdanovic has been key for the Pacers' early success, and tonight he added three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes. He's holding steady as a late-round value with an emphasis on 3-pointers.

Josh Richardson was poked in his left eye late during Sunday's game, which he finished with 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting, two assists, two steals, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Richardson exited with 3:26 remaining in the game and Miami trailing by 24 points, so this might have been a simple precaution. He was one of the only bright spots for the Heat tonight and his shot was finally falling, after a combined 3-of-17 mark in his previous two games, so hopefully he'll be ready to roll vs. Boston on Wednesday.

Dion Waiters' shot abandoned him on Sunday and he finished scoreless on 0-of-10 shooting, adding just two rebounds, two steals, one rebound and one turnover in 26 minutes.

Fantasy owners aren't relying on Waiters for solid FG percentages, given that he's at 41.9% on the season and 41.4% for his career. That doesn't excuse this dud, since his value is tethered to scoring (16.3 points per game) and 3-pointers (2.0), and he'll face another stiff test vs. Boston's league-leading defense on Wednesday. He's just a borderline value in 12-team leagues.

DeMar DeRozan powered the Raptors to a 100-91 win over the Wizards on Sunday, racking up 33 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two 3-pointers, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

The Wizards had absolutely no answers for DeRozan, who consistently sliced through Washington's swiss cheese-like defense, generating a majority of his points directly under the rim. In fact, DeRozan iced the game with a ferocious slam (link below) during the closing minutes of the contest, and he shouldn't have much trouble keeping the good times rolling on Wednesday with a very favorable matchup against the Knicks in New York.

Tyson Chandler (illness) and Jared Dudley (knee) will not play vs. the Bulls on Sunday.

Chandler has now missed three straight games. He should be healthy to face the Bucks on Wednesday, but in the meantime Greg Monroe will get another chance to improve his trade value, while Alex Len also picks up extra playing time.
Nov 19 - 6:24 PM

Bradley Beal scored 27 points on 11-of-23 shooting Sunday, to go with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist, one block and an unfortunate five turnovers in 37 minutes.

Beal set the tone early for Washington, playing the entire first quarter while posting a 37.8 usage rate through the first half of action, but the Raptors started bringing double and triple-teams during the second half which really slowed down his production. If John Wall (knee) is again forced to the sidelines on Monday night, look for Beal to continue to operate with a heightened usage rate while taking on some increased playmaking responsibilities.
Nov 19 - 6:22 PM

John Wall (left knee) has a "great chance" of playing vs. the Bucks on Monday, according to coach Scott Brooks.

"Just playing it safe," Brooks said, referring to Wall's DNP on Sunday. "We got three games in four nights, so we’re going to sit him out [Sunday] and see how he feels [Monday]. It’s a great chance there that he will play [Monday]." Wall's knee reportedly swelled up as a side-effect from IVs he received this week to help him recover from an illness, so fortunately it doesn't sound like anything structural. Check for confirmation on Monday afternoon, but it sounds safe to plug Wall into weekly lineups.
Nov 19 - 6:12 PM

Marcin Gortat nearly triple-doubled during Sunday's loss to the Raptors, racking up 12 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 35 minutes.

Gortat typically isn't a dime-dropper for the Wizards, but with John Wall (knee) unavailable, Gortat was tasked with some increased playmaking responsibilities. He also finished 6-of-11 from the field, and aside from the assists, this is more or less what owners can expect from Gortat as a low-end, double-double guy with solid percentages.
Nov 19 - 6:11 PM

Tyreke Evans (right shoulder) is listed as 'questionable' for Monday's game vs. the Blazers.

Injuries have been a theme of Evans' career over the past few seasons, but fortunately this doesn't sound serious -- it could also explain his relatively quiet game on Saturday, when he scored just seven points on 3-of-10 shooting in 25 minutes. We'll know more after Monday's shootaround, so check for updates in the afternoon.
Nov 19 - 5:59 PM

Isaiah Thomas (hip) went through an intense workout on Sunday, doing full-court sprints, shooting 3s and running through some 5-on-0 drills.

Thomas said this was the "hardest" he's run so far in his recovery, and that he "felt good for the most part." While the Cavs' haven't officially updated his potential return date, he's completed each stage of his recovery without any setbacks or pauses and is on track to return to the floor by January 1. The next step in Thomas' rehab will be incorporating cutting and change of direction work, so we'll be watching for any updates there.
