Nikola Pekovic returned from his quad contusion on Wednesday and had 17 points, 12 boards, one assist and one block in 37 minutes against the Clippers.

He missed five games with the injury, which is a little bit above average as far as thigh contusions go. Pekovic has been consistent and doesn't have any holes as a fantasy big man, so he should be inserted back into all lineups

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson appeared to tweak his ankle and he's headed back to the locker room.

Hollis-Jefferson was sporting a slight limp on his way back to the locker room, but it didn't look all that serious and he was able to make his way to the back unassisted. We should have another update shortly, stay tuned.

Caris LeVert will enter the starting five for Sunday's game against the Hawks, sending Allen Crabbe back to the bench.

The Nets will roll out a starting five featuring D'Angelo Russell, LeVert, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov in this one, and the starter designation makes LeVert an intriguing DFS option. Crabbe has actually played better with the second unit this season, and he should still see quality minutes regardless of how he enters the game, so he doesn't necessarily lose value in a bench role.

Seth Curry (left tibia stress reaction) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Warriors.

Monday will mark Curry's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and it's unclear exactly when he'll be able to get back to the court. Head coach Rick Carlisle has indicated that this will be a week-by-week issue, and with Dallas ruling him out a full day in advance, it doesn't seem like he's all that close. With Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) also questionable, Yogi Ferrell could be forced into heavy minutes on Monday night with J.J. Barea earning the start.

Dennis Smith Jr. (left knee effusion) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

DSJ has missed the last two games due to a "little swelling" in his knee, but the Mavs did downplay the issue. DSJ's owners can expect an update no later than Monday's morning shootaround. J.J. Barea looks like a nice speculative add and went for 19 points, five rebounds, three assists and three triples against Houston on Saturday.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks.

MKG is back with the Hornets after spending nearly the past two weeks with his family following the loss of his grandmother. Coach Steve Clifford wants MKG to build his conditioning back up before activating him, but he should have a good chance of playing on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Jeremy Lamb will be the best Charlotte wing to deploy in fantasy on Monday, while Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk will continue to get a bump.

Blake Griffin scored 29 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in a 130-88 win over the Suns on Saturday.

Two games, two wins and two 29-point game games. This is also the biggest win the Clippers have ever had against the Suns -- the Blazers can say the same thing after Wednesday. On top of the increased usage rate at 31.9, the Clippers are running at about nine possessions per 48 minutes faster this year, Griffin is taking more 3-pointers, and BG has been super efficient with a 67.4 true shooting percentage. Although, he may have gone up against two of the worst defenses in the NBA, but Griffin definitely has top-10 upside in all formats.
Oct 22 - 2:16 AM

Patrick Beverley scored 15 points with two rebounds, two assists, five steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.

He is playing with a chip on his shoulder and has been fairly effective as a scorer. Plus, the up-tempo game is right up his alley and that could even lead to more steals. Beverley has to be owned in all fantasy leagues with his appealing upside for steals and treys.

Eric Bledsoe made 1-of-4 from the field for four points during a 130-88 loss to the Clippers on Saturday, adding one rebound, four assists and four turnovers in 24 minutes.

Only 79 games until we don't have to talk about this team anymore. Kidding aside, this team is one of the biggest messes in quite some time with not one, but two losses of at least 42 points in just three games. After the game coach Earl Watson said "the pace needs to be pushed," which makes no sense. The Suns have a 109.4 pace in three games, which shatters the 2016-17 Nets' NBA-high 103.6. The Suns are so bad that Bledsoe is losing fantasy value because of so much garbage time, but his owners shouldn't sell low after this one. Maybe they trade him, too.

X-rays were negative on Milos Teodosic (foot) and he will have an MRI Sunday morning.

The good news is there doesn't appear to be a clear fracture in his foot, so maybe he dodged a bullet in what has been a nightmare start to the season regarding injuries. If you want to think positive, maybe his injury will be like Rodney Hood, who is day-to-day. While he's out, Austin Rivers, Lou Williams and Pat Beverley will pick up extra minutes.
Oct 22 - 1:08 AM

Jusuf Nurkic scored 17 points on 7-of-17 shooting during Saturday's narrow loss to the Bucks, to go with 11 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

Nurkic hasn't shot a great percentage through the first three games of the year, as he's been uncharacteristically inaccurate from under the basket, converting on just 33.3 percent of his attempts at the rim. However, there's really no way that trend will continue, and the fact that he's been working with a 30.7 usage rate this season is very encouraging regarding his rest of season outlook. This was his best game so far, but there's still some room to buy-low here.
Oct 22 - 12:44 AM

Evan Turner was productive in his 33 minutes off the bench Saturday, tallying 11 points, seven assists, two boards, one steal, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in a loss to the Bucks.

Turner was the first sub off the bench, and he did a really nice job of helping facilitate the offense while C.J. McCollum or Damian Lillard worked off the ball. His minutes are up this year, which is a trend that should hold with Allen Crabbe no longer a part of the equation, so the stars are aligned for a bounce-back year after a pretty disastrous 2016-17 campaign. Turner won't be much more than a late-round guy, but it looks like he'll be worth owning in competitive 12-team leagues.
