Latest Headlines

Brandan Wright (strained quad) is out for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

Wright also missed Tuesday's game with the injury. He is of minimal fantasy value given his limited minutes. Elton Brand will see more time and it's possible Bernard James could also see a few extra minutes against Miami.

Damian Lillard scored 18 points with seven rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes during a 93-91 win over the Hornets on Saturday.

Make it three straight road wins for the Rip City crew. Dame took some contact to his upper right leg in the first half and had the training staff look at him, but Lillard checked back in to close the second quarter with three 3-pointers to help give the Blazers a 12-point cushion at half. Lillard was laboring through this injury, but he shined through the pain to close the half and looked better in the third. Lillard's durability puts him in the conversation to be a top-five player in standard leagues.

C.J. McCollum scored 25 points against the Hornets on Saturday, adding two rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He was hot early to start this game and did cool off a little later. The Blazers blew a big lead in the fourth and McCollum said after the game that he has to finish games better. On the season, McCollum has been hotter in the second half with a tidy 60.0 TS% compared to just 51.6 TS% in the first half. Additionally, he's been awesome with his jumper and he's actually been more efficient on jumpers than he has been in the restricted area. Detailed stats aside, McCollum is a stud and will turn in early-round value this year as he looks to play 80-plus games for the third straight season.

Bam Adebayo started the third quarter for James Johnson (ankle) on Saturday against the Clippers.

Coach Erik Spoelstra will go double center against DeAndre Jordan here. He's been more inclined to go with Bam next to Kelly Olynyk, so that'll be used even more today. Adebayo has value in deeper leagues and gets a slight bump here.
Dec 16 - 9:19 PM

Tyreke Evans (hip) is available to play against the Celtics on Saturday and will start.

He was a game-time call and apparently everything is OK. Evans has been on the injury report for a good part of this month and that probably won't change in the near future. Get him him your lineups and hope he can stay healthy.
Dec 16 - 8:46 PM

James Johnson sustained a right ankle injury in the first quarter and will not return to Saturday's game.

He turned his right ankle as he was guarding Sam Dekker with six minutes left in the first, and he checked out right away. Johnson was able to limp to the bench under his own power and the injury didn't look too bad. With him out, it'll be Jordan Mickey time with more two-center lineups, as well.
Dec 16 - 8:37 PM

P.J. Tucker will start against the Bucks on Saturday.

It makes sense and he'll probably see a lot of Giannis Antetokounmpo. Ryan Anderson should be seeing more minutes against John Henson, so he benefits with Clint Capela (heel) out.
Dec 16 - 7:59 PM

James Harden (knee) will try to play against the Bucks on Saturday.

He went through warmups and the doctors said his knee is "structurally sound." Harden talked a lot about playing in 82 games last year, and he's been one of the most durable players in the NBA. He's had some success against the Bucks -- or really anyone -- so Harden could be in for one of his MVP performances again.
Dec 16 - 7:41 PM

Daniel Theis (nose) is available to play on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

Like basically every Celtic at some point, he'll be playing with a mask today. Theis broke his nose on Friday, so credit to him for being available. If he's not going to play, we'll see more Semi Ojeleye and Aron Baynes.
Dec 16 - 7:37 PM

Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Mavs on Saturday.

Spurs gonna Spur. Green played just 19 minutes on Friday night, but the team will still hold him out in a back-to-back set. We'll be seeing a lot of Brandon Paul, Bryn Forbes and maybe Davis Bertans.
Dec 16 - 7:35 PM

Dakari Johnson will start for Steven Adams against the Knicks on Saturday.

It will be his fourth start of the year. In his previous three, he averaged 6.3 points, 1.7 boards and 0.7 blocks in 17.3 minutes. He's a very risky play in DFS today.
Dec 16 - 7:33 PM

Clint Capela (heel) will not play against the Bucks on Saturday.

It will be his first game out of the lineup on the season. Capela's heel injury doesn't sound serious and he should be considered questionable for Monday against the banged-up Jazz. With him out, Nene should be active, but the Rockets will probably go small and start P.J. Tucker to push Ryan Anderson to the five. Tarik Black could also be an option. Besides the Anderson upgrade, there's some risk in using the other guys mentioned here.
