Latest Headlines

Derrick Williams will start at power forward for the Wolves on Thursday.

It should be interesting to see how he plays as a starter since he struggled mightily in his previous nine starts, shooting just 35.6 percent from the floor. This is still encouraging news to his value and he is worth a long look in standard leagues. Dante Cunningham will move to the bench and could lose some playing time.

Nicolas Batum (wrist) will play against the 76ers on Friday.

Dec 26 - 8:20 PM

Jon Leuer will start in place of Zach Randolph (knee) for Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

Leuer had a nice outing during his last start, putting up 16 points and seven rebounds over 30 minutes of action. He looks like a nice low-budget plug-and-play option tonight.
Dec 26 - 7:55 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

Ouch. Cousins has been ill more often than any player this season and his stomach bug will keep him out tonight. The Kings play again on Saturday, so Cousins should be considered questionable for that one. Expect Reggie Evans, Derrick Williams and Jason Thompson to get more run.
Dec 26 - 7:53 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) did some 5-on-0 work at shootaround Friday.

He's getting closer and it would appear contact is just around the corner. Rubio has been out since Nov. 7 with his severe ankle sprain and the Wolves have been forced to play Zach LaVine a little more than they planned. If you're looking to stash Rubio in a shallow league, now is probably the time.

Tony Parker (hamstring) could get an extended break to recover from his hamstring strain.

"It keeps coming back," coach Gregg Popovich said of Parker's hamstring strain. "That’s not good, so we’re just going to sit him out for a while." The last thing the Spurs want is their point guard hurt in the playoffs, so it sounds like Parker could miss multiple weeks. Of course, the Spurs have declared Parker out for an extended period of time and he's come back sooner in previous years, so it's all a guessing game. Regardless, Cory Joseph is worth a look in all leagues.
Dec 26 - 7:11 PM

Kobe Bryant (general soreness) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Mavs, but coach Byron Scott likes Kobe's chances of playing Sunday vs. the Suns.

Kobe was doubtful heading into this one, so this news shouldn't come as a surprise. "I just need to kind of hit the reset button," said Bryant. "What happens is my body realizes how messed up it is. Then everything starts hurting. It’s an opportunity to treat everything." While Kobe is sidelined, Nick Young, Wes Johnson, Wayne Ellington, and Carlos Boozer will all see some increased opportunity on offense.
Dec 26 - 7:02 PM

Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis will play against the Lakers on Friday.

Dirk missed shootaround today and was questionable for this one. There is no worth on how much he will play, but the Mavericks are not on a back-to-back set or anything. He should be ready to roll for his fantasy owners in a great matchup tonight.
Dec 26 - 6:54 PM

Boris Diaw (illness) will be available to play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

Diaw picked up a DNP-CD on Thursday, but coach Gregg Popovich explained he was dealing with a 100-degree fever, and was suffering a bit of strep, and his decision to withhold him from Thursday's game was to have him available for Friday. However, Diaw will likely be limited tonight playing through an illness, and given the difficult matchup, he's not a very attractive option in daily leagues.
Dec 26 - 6:51 PM

Coach Gregg Popovich said everyone is good to go for Friday except for Tony Parker (hamstring), Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Patty Mills (shoulder).

The Spurs are not playing their best ball these days and are going to need a win against the Pelicans tonight more than usual. Duncan should see his normal playing time, but anything goes with Pop. We'll be on the lookout for the starting lineups a bit later.
Dec 26 - 6:46 PM

John Henson (foot) is expected to play against the Hawks on Friday.

He's been out for a month and hasn't played more than 21 minutes in a game all season, so the Bucks probably won't unleash him even with Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) and Larry Sanders (illness) out. Henson also doesn't play much power forward, so fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach.
Dec 26 - 6:43 PM

Patrick Beverley (illness) will play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He was listed as questionable before today, but Beverley is one of the toughest players in the NBA. He's good to go as a mid-round play. Additionally, if you were thinking about playing Mike Conley in daily fantasy leagues, you might want to reconsider.
