Al-Farouq Aminu hit 3-of-9 shots and 12-of-13 free throws on his way to 18 points, nine rebounds and two steals.

It's official. Aminu is worth a close look in most leagues, despite his inconsistent scoring, and it's also worth noting he likely benefitted from the absence of Eric Gordon tonight, who was out for rest. Aminu is back in the rotation and averaging 26 minutes, along with 8.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks over his last five. Just beware that he's scored five or fewer points in three of those, and got most of them from the free throw line tonight.

An MRI revealed a minor bone bruise in Andrew Bogut's right knee and he's expected to spend at least the next two weeks on the sidelines.

Vince Carter (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Dec 6 - 3:57 PM

Zach Randolph (personal) will return to action for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, as expected.

Randolph will be returning from a seven-game absence, and the Grizzlies sure could use him with Vince Carter (hip), Chandler Parsons (knee), James Ennis (calf), Mike Conley (back) and Brandan Wright (ankle) all set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines. Randolph should be heavily involved in Memphis' offense with all those guys out, although he could also be dealing with a minutes limit after a lengthy absence, so he's a risky DFS target. JaMychal Green could lose some minutes with Z-Bo back.
Dec 6 - 3:56 PM

George Hill (left big toe) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

This will be Hill's fourth straight game on the sidelines, so while he's been phenomenal while on the court this season, his penchant for hitting the sidelines has been extremely frustrating. Dante Exum should continue to start with Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward running the show on offense. For now, we'll be considering Hill questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.
Dec 6 - 3:51 PM

Larry Nance (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game in Houston.

Nance was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, and he was officially "available to play" on Monday, so he's probably much closer to probable for Wednesday's game. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but Nance's return to action will syphon away some minutes from Thomas Robinson and Julius Randle.
Dec 6 - 3:48 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Wednesday has been the target date all along, so things are trending in a positive direction here, although we likely won't get official confirmation on his status until we're closer to game-time. With Williams back in action, Frank Kaminsky will return to the bench and Spencer Hawes could fall out of the rotation entirely. Williams has been awful this year, connecting on just 33.6 percent of his shots, so he's a more attractive pickup in points leagues.

Sean Marks said he suspects that Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will be able to return to the court "pretty soon."

"He’s so vocal, still at practice, in the locker room and has been from day one when he was out with his injury," said Marks. "He’s progressing well. I obviously don’t want to put a time limit or a day, but I suspect it pretty soon." Lin reportedly looked good while going through his shooting drills on Tuesday, but he's still yet to go through a full practice with the team making Wednesday's game against the Nuggets unlikely. He was a top-60 guy before going down, so we'd recommend his owners stay patient.

D'Angelo Russell (knee) has been cleared to start going through on-court work with the Lakers, although he will not be traveling to Houston for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Russell is reportedly "feeling better," although Walton did acknowledge that it's unlikely he'll be able to play Friday vs. Phoenix or Sunday vs. the Knicks. Perhaps there's a chance that he can get back to the court for Monday's game in Sacramento, but that would be on the early end of his initial 2-3 week timetable. For now, Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson will continue to soak up the backcourt minutes in Russell's absence, with Sweet Lou offering the most upside.
Dec 6 - 3:13 PM

Isaiah Thomas (groin) did not participate during Tuesday's practice.

Thomas tweaked his groin during Monday's loss to the Rockets, so for now, we're going to consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Orlando. If he's out, Marcus Smart or Terry Rozier could move into the starting lineup, with Avery Bradley and Al Horford being asked to step it up on the offensive end. Owners can expect to get another update on Thomas' status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it's worth noting that he was able to get some shots up after practice.
Dec 6 - 2:58 PM

Rick Carlisle said that he expects Andrew Bogut to miss at least the next three games "and probably longer," after suffering a right knee injury during Monday's loss to the Hornets.

Bogut is currently undergoing an MRI, so we should have an updated and official timetable for his return soon, but it doesn't seem very likely that he'll be able to get back to the court until at least next Tuesday's game (Dec. 12) against the Nuggets. Salah Mejri could draw a few starts in Bogut's absence, but Dwight Powell is the guy you want to add in standard leagues.
Dec 6 - 2:40 PM

Eric Gordon (right ankle) says he feels "fine" and will practice on Tuesday and plans to play Wednesday.

Gordon tweaked his right ankle in Monday's win over the Celtics. Gordon has been red-hot of late. Over the Rockets last five games, Gordon is averaging 22.0 points, 3.2 assists and 4.4 three-pointers, while shooting 50.7 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent from downtown. Check back prior to Wednesday night just for confirmation, but it appears Gordon should be left in starting lineups.
