Jared Dudley shot 11-of-17 from the field for a career-high 36 points to go with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 42 minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He cooled off over the weekend, failing to knock down any 3-pointers in his two games, but had made a combined 10 triples in his three games prior to that. He has played a whopping 38.5 minutes per game over his last eight contests and should be owned (and started) in all leagues until further notice.

Jahlil Okafor said he plans to make his Brooklyn debut on Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

Okafor practiced with the Nets for the first time on Monday, and while he hasn't discussed what role he'll have with the club with head coach Kenny Atkinson, it would be shocking if he didn't quickly find himself in the starting five in Brooklyn. He also said that he'll be playing with a chip on his shoulder and that he's very excited to share the court with D'Angelo Russell (knee), as the two grew up playing together. He's in a great spot for minutes, so he's worth a speculative add everywhere.

Damian Lillard said that his right ankle is still "a little sore," but he plans to play Monday vs. Golden State.

Lillard tweaked his ankle during the second half of Sunday's loss to the Rockets but didn't miss any game-time action, and in typical Lillard-fashion he'll just fight through the pain. Feel free to get him active, as he has a history of going off when playing in his hometown of Oakland.

Milos Teodosic (foot) got up shots during Monday's shootaround.

He's officially being listed as questionable for Monday's game, and will likely be a game-time call, but there's a very realistic chance he could be returning to the court tonight's matchup with the Raptors. He hasn't played since October, so we wouldn't expect him to be logging heavy minutes out the gate. That said, he'll be in an excellent position to produce once he's fully up to speed, so he shouldn't be sitting on any waiver wires anywhere.
Dec 11 - 3:21 PM

Rick Carlisle said that Seth Curry (leg) will remain on the sidelines until at least December 18.

This rules Curry out for this week as the Mavs continue to push back his timetable, and there's just no incentive for them to get him back on the court until he's clearly 100 percent. He'll likely be brought along slowly, so he's not the most appealing stash in most 12-team leagues.
Dec 11 - 3:13 PM

John Wall (knee) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, but head coach Scott Brook wouldn't commit to having him available for Tuesday's game in Brooklyn.

This is the second report we have of Wall going through a full-contact practice without issue, and while he's being listed as "out" in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup in Brooklyn, Brooks playing coy with his availability indicates that he could be cleared. We should get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but the Wizards might not want to bring Wall back for a road game on a back-to-back set. If he's out again, Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky will split the PG minutes.
Dec 11 - 3:05 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

This will be Smith Jr.'s third straight game on the sidelines, and he's currently without an official timetable to return. The Mavs have no incentive to rush him back to the court, with his long-term health being their primary concern, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Thursday's game in Golden State, making him a risky guy to deploy in weekly leagues. J.J. Barea, Yogi Ferrell and Devin Harris will all be splitting DSJ's minutes.
Dec 11 - 2:41 PM

Al Horford (right knee contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. Chicago.

Horford banged knees with Anthony Tolliver on Sunday, and while he barely missed any game-time action, this is the sort of thing that can swell up overnight. The Celtics are comfortably sitting in the No. 1 spot out East, so they may opt to take a cautious approach with Horford on the second night of a back-to-back set, particularly with a matchup against the 5-20 Bulls. If Horford sits, we might see Daniel Theis slide into the starting five, while Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum would be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense with Kyrie Irving (quad) also out.
Dec 11 - 2:38 PM

Kyrie Irving (left quad contusion) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls.

Irving did get kneed in the quad on a drive to the hoop by Andre Drummond on Sunday night, but his absence from Monday's game feels more precautionary than anything else on the second night of a back-to-back and with a matchup against the worst team out East. Marcus Smart will likely shift into the starting five tonight and there will be more minutes for Terry Rozier, while Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum will see a big bump in usage.
Dec 11 - 2:37 PM

Moe Harkless (quad) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Warriors.

This will be Harkless' second straight game on the sidelines, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game in Miami. Evan Turner and Al-Farouq Aminu will be splitting Harkless' minutes, with Aminu being the preferable fantasy play. Harkless has been flat out bad this season so he's not worth rostering in most leagues.
Dec 11 - 2:29 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers.

This will be Pachulia's second straight game on the sidelines after aggravating the shoulder injury in a five-minute stint on Wednesday, and for now we'll be considering him questionable for Thursday's game against the Mavericks. JaVale McGee typically starts against more traditional frontcourts, but with Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) out for Portland, they might go small which could result in Jordan Bell earning the starting nod. Draymond Green also figures to log heavy minutes tonight.
Dec 11 - 2:19 PM

Rodney Hood (sore left ankle) is targeting a return to the court for Wednesday's game in Chicago.

Hood has missed seven straight games with a sore ankle, so it's about time he gets back to the court. He may be brought along slowly after a two-week absence, but it'll be interesting to see how he impacts Alec Burks minutes once he's fully up to speed. Expect to get more than a few updates on Hood leading up to Wednesday's tip.
