Dwight Howard aggravated his right shoulder in the first half on Wednesday's game and he will not return

Uh oh. Howard separated his labrum earlier this month and he will be re-evaluated on Thursday. He requested to come out of the game and he was talking with trainer Gary Vitti before going to the locker room, so the discomfort doesn't bode well at all. Dwight could miss time and Earl Clark becomes an even hotter commodity in standard leagues. Pau Gasol would also move back to the starting center spot and is on the upswing.

Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) is probable to play Monday vs. the Bulls.

He's been out since Nov. 8, so he'll likely be eased back into things as his conditioning likely isn't where it needs to be. Aminu's return should push Ed Davis back to the bench and Meyers Leonard's minutes will become even more inconsistent. Aminu was hitting just 27.9 percent of his shots prior to going down with meager averages of 6.4 points, 6.7 boards, 1.1 treys and 1.4 steals per game, so he's only worth a speculative add in deep points leagues at the moment.
Dec 4 - 4:21 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Wizards.

Monday will be Lin's 15th consecutive game on the sidelines, and the Nets' haven't given any indication that he's getting close to a return. Isaiah Whitehead will continue to start in his absence, but Sean Kilpatrick remains the primary beneficiary. Lin is worth holding onto in most leagues.
Dec 4 - 3:54 PM

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

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said the team is being cautious with Nikola Jokic (wrist).

"Talking to Nikola, he wants to play right when he can catch the ball," Malone said. "I think we’ll probably be a little more cautious than that on this road trip, maybe get it looked at again just to kind of see where it’s at once the swelling goes down." He's been ruled out for the next three games, meaning the earliest we could see him back on the court is Saturday against Orlando. Jokic looked great right before the injury and should obviously be stashed everywhere.
