Latest Headlines

J.J. Barea (back) has rejoined the Wolves in San Antonio for Sunday's game and will play.

He missed two games with a slightly herniated lumbar-5 vertebrae and it should be interesting to see if he can flirt with his usual 23.4 minutes-per-game load. Barea has been solid in scoring and he might be worth a pickup with a decent game tonight. We'll let you know how he fares.

Updating a previous report, David West (ankle) will start Friday vs. the Magic.

West's return to the starting lineup will send Luis Scola to the bench. He'll bring a much-needed scoring punch to the Pacers offense, and will offer rebounds and solid percentages to fantasy squads. Get him active.

Russell Westbrook (hand) will play Friday vs. New York.

Westbrook has a favorable matchup tonight vs. Jose Calderon of the Knicks, so get him active. His return will send Reggie Jackson to the bench, and his value will take a minor hit, but Jackson will still be worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 28 - 12:09 PM

Roy Hibbert (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

If Hibbert is unable to go, Ian Mahinmi will continue to start in his place. Mahinmi is averaging 9.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.0 block per game with the starting unit.
Nov 28 - 12:06 PM

Gary Neal (shoulder) will not play Friday vs. the Warriors.

His absence will translate to more minutes for Gerald Henderson and P.J. Hairston, but it was Brian Roberts who went off for a career-high 24 points in his absence on Wednesday. If you're feeling lucky, Roberts could be worth a salary-relief play in daily leagues, while Henderson should get some decent run tonight, as well.
Nov 28 - 11:58 AM

Joakim Noah (eye, left knee) will go through shootaround, and if he feels fine, he will play according to coach Tom Thibodeau.

Noah's return to the starting lineup would send rookie Cameron Bairston back to the bench. He was able to go through a full practice on Thursday, so things are looking positive towards him giving it a go. Stay tuned.
Nov 28 - 11:52 AM

Derrick Rose (hamstring) will go through warm ups on Friday, and if there are no issues, he will be "good to go" according to Tom Thibodeau.

Rose is being listed as probable and has a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics, but owners will want to check back for an official update after shootaround. Stay tuned.
Nov 28 - 11:46 AM

Mo Williams (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

If Williams is unable to go, Zach LaVine would draw the start in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers, and would make for a decent option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Nov 28 - 11:28 AM

Carmelo Anthony (back spasms) remains doubtful for Friday's game vs. OKC.

Carmelo showed up at the Knicks' shootaround to get treatment on his ailing back, but according to beat reporter Al Iannazzone, he is looking much better health-wise. Owners will want to check back for an official update on Melo's status closer to tip-off, but it's looking like he'll be a no-go. If he sits out, J.R. Smith will be free to jack up as many shots as he sees fit. Stay tuned.

Steve Kerr praised Stephen Curry's play on the defensive end during a recent interview.

"I've seen really good defense," Kerr said of Curry. "That's the thing that's impressed me the most is Steph's commitment on that end. Offensively, I already knew what he could do just watching the highlights the last couple of years. I think he's become a really well-rounded All-Star. He was already an All-Star, but now I think he's an All-Star at both ends of the floor." The Dubs currently rank third in defensive efficiency vs. the point guard position, and Curry is hitting career-highs in points (24.2), 3-pointers (3.5), steals (2.1), and field goal percentage (49.8). He's currently the second-best player in fantasy hoops, and has joined the conversation as a potential MVP-candidate.

DeMarcus Cousins (leg) did not appear on the Kings' injury report for Friday's game against the Spurs.

The Kings have thrown players with very minor injuries on the injury report as "probable" and it looks like Cousins dodged a bullet here. He suffered what could have been a contusion on Wednesday, but he did play through it and there look to be no negative effects since. He's arguably the best fantasy big man this side of Anthony Davis.
Nov 27 - 9:16 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison (quad) are questionable to face the Spurs on Friday.

We should get more information at shootaround tomorrow, but there was optimism on both guys. Achilles tendinitis tends to linger and hopefully Gay sitting out was more of a precaution than anything else -- he had this problem last year, too. If he is out, Omri Casspi will be an option in some leagues, but a date with Kawhi Leonard probably makes him less attractive in daily.
