An MRI revealed that Kevin Love re-fractured his third metacarpal on his right hand.

An X-ray on Thursday didn't show a break, but the MRI on Saturday revealed that there is a fracture to the same bone that was broken from doing knuckle pushups back in October. This is a devastating blow to fantasy owners and Love's timetable could be 4-6 weeks like the last time. Dante Cunningham and Derrick Williams serve as the speculative adds, with Cunningham being the safer of the two and Williams providing more upside.

Deron Williams limped to the locker room in the second quarter on Friday.

He was able to was able to limp back under his own power with the apparent leg injury. Williams has chronic problems with his ankles and hopefully he will be good to go. If he's out, Jarrett Jack will be worth a long look.

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play on Friday night against the Clippers.

He has a lower leg strain and the injuries just keep coming for Arthur. He's played well, but he's going to be tough to own in most leagues. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will pick up some playing time.
Dec 19 - 8:09 PM

Joel Freeland will start against the Spurs on Friday.

Coach Terry Stotts is going to mix it up in the starting lineup and Thomas Robinson will come off the bench. Robinson might not play much and Stotts has yo-yo'd him in the lineup several times. Freeland is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Dec 19 - 8:02 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) is hoping to take on contact in two weeks.

He was hoping to play around Christmas, but it doesn't sound like that's going to happen. Rubio will likely take at least a week to progress from practice to games. In other words, he's probably looking to return in January.

Shawne Williams will start Friday vs. the Wizards, sending Justin Hamilton to the bench.

Williams has been struggling lately, but he's a more effective player than Justin Hamilton and it'll be interesting to see how he fares returning to the starting unit. Chris Bosh (calf) is without a timetable to return, and Josh McRoberts (knee) could be done for the season, so the opportunity is there for Williams. He's worth a speculative add, but he has a tough matchup tonight vs. Washington.
Dec 19 - 7:16 PM

Mario Chalmers will start at point guard on Friday night against the Wizards.

The move is a little overdue with Norris Cole not playing well. Chalmers is going to do a lot of work as a shooter as Dwyane Wade handles the ball, but his upside in treys and steals will make him worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 19 - 7:16 PM

Mo Williams (back) will be available to play Friday vs. Boston.

Flip Saunders is going to limit him to 10-15 minutes tonight, so he shouldn't be viewed as a viable option in most leagues.
Dec 19 - 7:10 PM

Kawhi Leonard said he has a torn ligament in his right hand.

He is going to let the swelling go down first and the Spurs will come up with a plan after that. Players will fight through torn ligaments in their hands all the time and it has a lot to do with the location of the tear. He is still listed as day-to-day and his fantasy owners should consider him questionable for Saturday. Kyle Anderson is worth a look in deep leagues. We'll add updates as we receive them.
Dec 19 - 7:07 PM

Taj Gibson (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The Bulls have the deepest frontcourt in the NBA, so there is no need to bring Taj back too soon. He is close to a return and traveled with the team, but his owners should consider him questionable to play next week. Pau Gasol went off on Thursday while Nikola Mirotic was also superb.
Dec 19 - 6:33 PM

Nicolas Batum (wrist, knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

C.J McCollum, Dorell Wright, Allen Crabbe, and Will Barton will all step up to help fill the void with Batum sidelined, but none of these guys make for a great play in standard leagues. Portland plays again Saturday against the Pelicans, and we'll be considering Batum questionable for that one. Stay tuned.
Dec 19 - 6:32 PM

Coach Gregg Popovich said he will not rest his players on Friday against the Blazers.

Wow. This is shocking considering the Spurs played a triple-overtime game on Wednesday. We can probably assume there will be a handful of rested players on Saturday, though. Of course, Pop may change his mind, so Duncan isn't a 100 percent lead-pipe lock to play.
