Jordan Crawford (ankle) is hoping to return on the current Wizards road trip.

Crawford actually has a bone bruise on his ankle. The Wizards play their next four games on the road before returning home, so there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Crawford said that he hasn't been 100 percent since initially injuring himself, and he wants to get back to full strength before returning. "It's not sore anymore," he said. "It's just weak." When he does return, the Wizards will work him back into the backcourt mix with John Wall and Bradley Beal.

Wes Matthews hit seven threes and 9-of-16 shots overall in Friday's loss, finishing with 26 points, four rebounds and three assists.

Matthews is rolling right now and averaging 4.3 threes per game over his last four contests. He's a solid mid-round value on the year and shouldn't leave lineups.

Marc Gasol torched the Blazers in Portland on Friday, scoring 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, nine assists and one block.

Gasol has slimmed down and he is crushing the opposition with top-10 value on the season. He might be shooting over his head a little bit now that he's taking a career-high 14.1 shots per game, and the only time he has hit his current free throw rate (84.1 percent) was in 2012-13 (84.8%). His best season other than that was a 76.8 percent campaign last year. Regardless, he's going to be fun to own.

Mike Conley was one assist shy of a triple-double in Friday's win over the Blazers, scoring 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting with 10 rebounds and nine assists.

Conley did not hit a three or get any defensive stats, so this game won't have as much impact as it could have on the rankings. At a fourth round value this season, he has closed the gap on his ADP and has a ways to go before he meets expectations in competitive standard leagues.

David West (ankle) made his season debut in the Pacers' 98-83 win over the Magic on Friday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-17 shooting with six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

West is going to play a big role for the Pacers as offensive initiator from the post and his scoring will be relied upon all year. If he can stay healthy he should have some pretty gaudy numbers while George Hill is out.

Kawhi Leonard flirted with a 5x5 line in the Spurs' 112-104 win over the Kings on Friday, scoring 19 points on 6-of-13 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and four blocks.

Flirt may be a strong word with three steals in there and 3-pointers being used instead of the traditional 'PTs-REBs-ASTs-STLs-BLKs' for 5x5 status -- but really who cares. He's just below second round value while his shooting percentages and blocks have still yet to catch up to career levels. Enjoy the ride.
Nov 29 - 2:50 AM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) returned to action in Friday's loss to the Spurs, scoring 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 4-of-6 from the line) with eight rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 35 minutes.

That Gay did this with no DeMarcus Cousins around to keep the defense honest and Kawhi Leonard draped all over him all night is impressive. He's returning top 20-30 value on the season and the only number that seems out of place is his foul shooting (87.5 percent), which is about nine percent above his career 78.7 percent mark.
Nov 29 - 2:31 AM

Russell Westbrook obliterated the Knicks in his return from a 14-game absence due to a broken hand, scoring 32 points on 12-of-17 shooting (three treys) with seven rebounds, eight assists and a steal in the Thunder's 105-78 win.

Weekly league owners needed refills for their salivary glands watching these pinball numbers go off from their bench. Our long international wait is over!
Nov 29 - 2:02 AM

Reggie Jackson returned to the second unit in Friday's blowout win, scoring 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

This could be a familiar line for the rest of the season and owners should expect mid-to-late round value once Kevin Durant returns.
Nov 29 - 1:45 AM

Blake Griffin scored 30 points in a blowout 102-85 win at Houston on Friday with 10 boards and one assist in just 31 minutes.

The Rockets had no answer for him at all. Griffin is starting to get it going after a slow start, averaging 21.0 points, 8.8 boards, 4.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 turnovers on 46.3 percent from the field and 76.2 percent from the line over his last five.
Nov 29 - 1:03 AM

Andre Drummond set season-highs for scoring (26) and rebounding (20) in Friday's loss to the Bucks, hitting 12-of-19 shots with a steal and block in 38 minutes.

Welcome back, Andre. The Pistons threw a lot at the kid and he short-circuited for a bit there, but hopefully owners were patient through the first 15 games of the season. The buy low window is slammed shut.
Nov 29 - 12:58 AM

Monta Ellis scored a game-high 30 points against the Raptors on Friday with one rebound, six assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He came off his worst game with just eight points against the Knicks on Wednesday, but Monta just controlled the offense tonight. He'll get an easy matchup against the 76ers on Saturday. The Mavericks beat them by 53 on Nov. 13, so his owners will have to be careful of garbage time. Despite how he's struggled in the second half of back-to-backs, you're obviously starting him.
