Latest Headlines

Jared Sullinger had a career-high 16 boards to go with 12 points, one steal and one block in 34 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

The 34 minutes were also a career high for him in his best game as a pro. Doc River has been insinuating that he wants to play Sullinger more, but couldn't due to his stamina. "He's not actually fat. He's round. But he has great feet," Rivers said after the game. We wouldn't quite call this his coming out party just yet and Rivers can run some messy frontcourt rotations, but he's firmly on the radar in standard leagues. Brandon Bass (six points and five boards in 27 minutes) struggled on Wednesday to make Sullinger's outlook even better.

Seth Curry (right knee sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets.

Curry has spent the past two games on the sidelines, and his minutes have been divvied up between Devin Harris and Jonathan Gibson, with Deron Williams logging around 30 minutes as a starter. It'll be more of the same if he can't give it a go Monday night.
Dec 4 - 3:12 PM

Dirk Nowtizki (Achilles) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Hornets.

It'll be Dirk's fifth straight game on the sidelines, and the only recent update we've had on Nowitzki from Rick Carlisle is that he'll be out "a while." For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Dorian Finney-Smith will continue to start in his absence, with Harrison Barnes acting as the No. 1 option on offense.
Dec 4 - 3:09 PM

Larry Nance (right knee contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Jazz.

Nance missed Saturday's showdown in Memphis, which resulted in Julius Randle, Luol Deng and Brandon Ingram logging heavy minutes, and it'll be more of the same if Nance can't give it a go Monday night.
Dec 4 - 2:43 PM

Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) has been ruled out for Monday’s game against the Jazz.

With Calderon, Nick Young (Achilles), D’Angelo Russell (knee) all set to spend Monday night on the sidelines, the Lakers could go with a starting backcourt of Jordan Clarkson and Marcelo Huertas, with Clarkson being the preferable fantasy target. Lou Williams, who is coming off a 40-point game, will also see some increased opportunity on Monday night, as would Brandon Ingram.
Dec 4 - 2:39 PM

Mike D'Antoni said that Trevor Ariza (back) was feeling better, and the Rockets are listing him as day-to-day.

Ariza exited Friday's game during the closing minutes with back spasms and did not return, but Houston was up by 20 when Ariza tapped out. He did sit out Sunday's practice, and while he did say he was feeling better, he acknowledged that he might not play Monday vs. Boston. If he’s out, Corey Brewer and K.J. McDaniels would see a boost in value.
Dec 4 - 2:17 PM

John Wall (rest) sat out of practice on Sunday.

He is a little "banged up" with a thigh contusion, but the Wizards are just managing his reps in practice to keep him fresh for the games. He also missed a practice on Thursday and ended up scoring 17 points with 15 dimes against the Spurs on Friday. He's fine.
Dec 4 - 1:58 PM

George Hill (left big toe) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

This will be his third game in a row on the shelf, but the Jazz are hoping he will be able to return either Tuesday against the Suns or Thursday against the Warriors. Dante Exum will likely continue to start, but he's been outplayed by Shelvin Mack lately and has played less minutes than Mack in two straight games.
Dec 4 - 1:01 PM

Reggie Jackson (knee, thumb) will play on Sunday vs. the Magic.

He was listed as out on the pre-game notes, but the decision on his status was always up to Jackson. Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Jackson will play 4-5 minutes per quarter, so he's looking at roughly 18-20 minutes of action if this holds up. The Pistons are going to ease him back into action, so DFS owners can't trust him right away. If you own Ish Smith, it makes sense to wait and see what happens over the next week before moving on.
Dec 4 - 10:49 AM

Kevin Durant made scoring 20 points look easy against the Suns during a 138-109 win on Saturday, adding four rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

He needed just seven attempts from the field and made all nine from the line with just one turnover -- that's only a 16.2 usage rate. Durant's 91.2 true shooting percentage tonight boosted him to 68.0 on the season, which moves him back into the top spot on the season -- Patty Mills is No. 2 at 67.8. Durant also has 3.2 blocks per game in his last five. He's the number one player in fantasy right now.
Dec 4 - 2:05 AM

Stephen Curry needed just 30 minutes to score 31 points against the Suns on Saturday, adding two rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

He went bonkers in the third quarter with 20 points. This was the 16th time in his career he scored at least 20 in a quarter with nine of those 16 coming in the third. Curry has been incredible in the second half at home, posting a 71.1 true shooting percentage in those 10 games. He's being out-shined a bit by Kevin Durant, but Curry's efficiency is almost as good as it was last year. He's been a top-five player in standard leagues.
Dec 4 - 2:00 AM

Hassan Whiteside played 41 minutes during a 99-92 loss to the Blazers on Saturday, scoring 28 points with 16 rebounds, one assist and five blocks.

That is a ton of playing time for Whiteside. He made 12-of-16 from the field and now has double-digit rebounding games in all but one game this season. Whiteside padded his lead in rebounds with 14.9 and he's also leapfrogged Rudy Gobert for the No. 2 spot in blocks per game. He's going to post some massive stat lines for the short-handed Heat and is sitting on second-round value this season.
