Phil Jackson told SheridanHoops.com he has "no intention of ever coaching again."

Jackson is reportedly the Nets' top choice for their coaching vacancy, although the team appears content to play out the season under interim P.J. Carlesimo. While this may throw some cold water on those reports, no one should take the quote as a guarantee. Jackson and his camp have never been shy about using public denials as a way to strengthen their negotiating power. We have a feeling Phil's name will pop back up once the Nets ramp up their coaching search.

Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 30 points in Friday's 122-113 loss to Phoenix.

Wow. He started this game 0-of-6 at halftime, but finished 11-of-23 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with 10 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. This was his sixth game of the season with 20+ points which is more than any other rookie, and there's no way that coach Luke Walton can justify taking him out the starting lineup with Larry Nance (hand) nearing a return. He doesn't get many defensive stats, but he's still a must-start player in all formats.

Willie Cauley-Stein thrived in his role off the bench during an 86-82 win over the Blazers on Friday. scoring a season-high 22 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.

He was awesome as the Kings had their best defensive effort with a season-low 82 points allowed. Cauley-Stein did show some flashes in the game against Joel Embiid on Nov. 9, but he fell off a cliff in the previous three with a combined 17 points. On paper and based on how most bad teams treat their young guys, Cauley-Stein should be in a position to succeed. Of course, this all depends on coach Dave Joerger sticking with a consistent rotation. Cauley-Stein kind of has to be added in standard leagues after this game in a big win at home.

Buddy Hield (ankle) is unlikely to play on Saturday vs. the Blazers.

He rolled his right ankle on Friday and wasn't able to return, and he was spotted using crutches in the locker room after the game. With Hield looking at some time on the shelf, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Frank Mason could both benefit with the Kings experimenting with some two-PG lineups.

Anthony Davis suffered a concussion on Friday vs. the Nuggets and will not return.

His night finished with 17 points (7-of-11 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes. We don't know the severity quite yet and the timetables for concussions can vary quite a bit, so it's too early to speculate on how much time he will miss. Coach Alvin Gentry loves Dante Cunningham for some reason, but it's possible he turns to Cheick Diallo if Davis misses time.

Spencer Dinwiddie exploded during a 118-107 win over the Jazz on Friday, scoring a career-high 25 points with five rebounds, eight assists, two steals, six 3-pointers and no turnovers.

We'll save you the time to start this blurb: Dinwiddie needs to be added everywhere. He is the first player in franchise history to record 25-plus points, six-plus 3-pointers made and eight-plus assists with no turnovers in a game. D'Angelo Russell (knee) is expected to miss a good amount of time, so Dinwiddie has the keys to one of the most fantasy-friendly systems out there. He is going to be a difference maker until DAR is back, which could be a long while.

Kris Dunn scored a career-high 22 points vs. the Hornets on Friday with seven assists, five rebounds, three steals and two triples in 26 minutes.

He was back on the bench with Justin Holiday (personal) back in the lineup, but it seems like it's just a matter of time before he takes Jerian Grant's spot. Perhaps the most impressive part of this line was that he finished with one turnover, as he was averaging 3.4 TOs per game prior to Friday. He hit 10-of-16 shots and gets a great chance to build on this performance against the Suns on Sunday.

Allen Crabbe scored 18 points with five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

NBA Twitter has been hard on Crabbe the previous couple years because he wasn't asked to do much outside of defense and make open treys. However, he had some weapons in his arsenal and carved up folks in Las Vegas a few years ago, so it's really not a surprise he's turning the corner as a guy who can get his own shot. With D'Angelo Russell (knee) out for a while, Crabbe will have plenty of opportunity to produce for owners in all standard leagues.

Buddy Hield (ankle) was helped to the locker room in the fourth quarter and he will not return.

He rolled his right ankle as he was trying to put a move on in transition. Hield didn't put weight on his leg at first, but he did put some weight on it as he was helped to the locker room by two staff members. There's a decent chance he misses time from this injury, which means coach Dave Joerger will increase the minutes for several people in his rotation. Bogdan Bogdanovic and Frank Mason may benefit most.

Buddy Hield (ankle) was helped to the locker room in the fourth quarter and he will not return.

He rolled his right ankle as he was trying to put a move on in transition. Hield didn't put weight on his leg at first, but he did put some weight on it as he was helped to the locker room by two staff members. He's almost certainly done tonight, so expect to see

Anthony Davis went to the locker room on Friday vs. the Nuggets after colliding heads with Nikola Jokic.

He's likely going to be tested for a concussion, but we should have the official word soon. The Pelicans are getting toasted heading into the fourth quarter, so they may be cautious even if Davis is OK.
Nov 17 - 11:59 PM

Denzel Valentine started on Friday vs. the Hornets and scored a season-high 18 points with six assists, five rebounds, one block and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Yeah, there's a good chance Valentine sticks in the first unit. The second-year wing hit 7-of-15 shots and was running the offense quite a bit, helping the Bulls record their third win of the season. Valentine could take a hit when Zach LaVine (knee) returns, but that's not until mid-December and the Bulls need offensive weapons right now. With an awesome matchup coming up against the Suns on Sunday, Valentine is on the radar as a pickup.
