Latest Headlines

Phil Jackson would "for sure" be open to the "possibility of coaching" the Nets, a source told CBS Sports.

ESPN previously reported that the Nets top target is Jackson, but David Aldridge reported that Jackson's agent said his client had "no interest in the Nets job at this time," and later added that the Nets have established no top target in their coaching search. While "at this time" can be taken as a play for Jackson to get more leverage in Brooklyn, it's going to take a whopper of a package to get the legendary coach to even realistically consider the vacant position. ESPN's Chris Broussard also added that the team's list of targets beyond Jackson includes Mike Dunleavy, Nate McMillan, Jeff Van Gundy and Jerry Sloan, though Sloan is considered a "long shot" for obvious reasons.

Kevin Durant (left ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

Nov 24 - 2:05 PM

Draymond Green (rest) is out for Friday night against the Bulls.

Nov 24 - 2:05 PM

John Wall (left knee soreness) is not practicing on Friday.

Hopefully this is just a maintenance day for Wall to keep him fresh. He had a lot of treatment on his knee last week and he did miss a game on Sunday. For now, expect him to be ready to roll for Saturday against the Blazers after a 31-point Wednesday.
Nov 24 - 1:36 PM

Jared Dudley (knee) is available to play on Friday against the Pelicans.

He's been out of the lineup since he tweaked his knee under the basket back on Nov. 10. Marquese Chriss is in some kind of slump and it'll be interesting to see how the power forward minutes are split between the three. This could be bad news for Chriss.
Nov 24 - 1:33 PM

Wilson Chandler (lower back soreness) is probable against Memphis on Friday.

He was probable for Wednesday and did play 27 minutes, so this is the status quo for Chandler going forward. Although, he's been injury prone, so you may want to make sure he's good to go. The Nuggets have shift him back to small forward against a bigger Grizzlies team and how him at the four didn't work out against the Rockets on Wednesday.
Nov 24 - 1:13 PM

Nikola Jokic (ankle) is expected to play on Friday night against the Grizzlies.

He did have a slight tweak of his right ankle on Wednesday, but he did return in a game that the Nuggets were being blown out. Jokic should be close to 100 percent as he looks to anchor the offense now that Paul Millsap (wrist) is out. Fire him up in all leagues and consider him in DFS even in a subpar matchup.
Nov 24 - 1:11 PM

Andre Drummond (dental implant) and Avery Bradley (groin tightness) will play Friday against the Thunder.

Both players missed practice on Wednesday, but it appears that was only precautionary. Drummond has been playing at a high level over the first five weeks of the season. He is currently averaging 13.5 points, a league-leading 15.3 rebounds and a career-high 3.4 assists, to go along with 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks. Drummond is also shooting 61.5 percent from the free-throw line, far above his career average of 39.1 percent.
Nov 24 - 12:23 PM

Eric Gordon (sore calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) are practicing Friday and are expected to play Saturday vs. the Knicks, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen.

Gordon was unable to play on Wednesday, but fortunately, it appears it will be just a one-game absence. The Rockets didn't miss either player on Wednesday, as they blew out the Nuggets by 30 points. Gordon had started 13 of the first 14 games he appeared in this season, before moving into the sixth-man role last week. Gordon should continue to see plenty of minutes and scoring opportunities as long as he is healthy.
Nov 24 - 12:11 PM

C.J. Miles (personal) will not play vs. the Pacers on Friday.

Congrats to the Miles family, as C.J.'s wife gave birth to a baby girl on Thanksgiving night. With Miles out of the mix on Friday, it will open up more minutes for Norman Powell and OG Anunoby. OG started at small forward on Wednesday, but finished with just three points, one board and one assist in 16 minutes. Powell, making his return to the lineup after missing four games due to a hip injury, scored 11 points with four rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes on Wednesday.
Nov 24 - 10:51 AM

Brandan Wright (groin) is out for Friday night against the Nuggets.

After his injury on Saturday, Wright will be missing his third game. There is no timetable for a return, but there hasn't been much information to suggest he'll be back in his next handful of games. Deyonta Davis is coming off a terrific 14-point game on Wednesday and could be a sneaky stream or DFS punt with 13-20 minutes.
Nov 23 - 6:52 PM

Nicolas Batum (ulnar nerve contusion) traveled with the team to Cleveland and is listed as questionable for Friday.

This is good news that he's not staying behind for further evaluation. It's a very specific diagnosis for a nerve in his elbow and hopefully it's not affecting the feeling in his arm. Batum reportedly feels this new injury isn't as bad as his left elbow injury that kept him out for six weeks, which makes sense because it didn't look bad in the second quarter on Wednesday. If Batum can't go, Jeremy Lamb would be busy in the starting lineup. Expect Batum to be a game-time call for the 8:00 EST start.
