Latest Headlines

Chris Paul (knee) is expected to miss his sixth straight game on Friday.

The Eric Bledsoe show continues for the Clippers. Bledsoe is averaging 11.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.5 steals and 1.0 blocks in 32.5 minutes per game as a starter, but he's shooting just 37.1 percent from the field. Paul "may" play on the Clippers road trip, an indication that his knee injury is more serious than the Clippers have let on to date. We don't expect him to be on the floor Friday.

James Harden strained his hamstring in Saturday's game vs. the Hawks, but has since returned.

This is incredible news for the Rockets, and it looks like Harden dodged a bullet here. We will obviously monitor him closely, and we will provide updates as needed. Stay tuned.
Dec 20 - 8:49 PM

Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He has some sort of muscle strain and it sounds like he's going to miss time. Arthur is hurt far too often, so expect J.J. Hickson and Kenneth Faried to plck up most of the minutes at power forward. Wilson Chandler also plays some four, too.
Dec 20 - 8:39 PM

Dwight Howard will start against the Hawks on Saturday.

Howard had a shoulder issue pop up this morning and was probable. Considering how much time he missed for his mysterious knee issue last month, there's always a small chance he misses a game. He's playing well, so start him as planned.
Dec 20 - 7:57 PM

Danny Green will come off of the bench on Saturday vs. Dallas.

There is nothing to worry about here, as coach Gregg Popovich is likely doing this to reduce Green's workload after playing 44 minutes on Friday. Marco Belinelli will draw the start, and is a sneaky plug-and-play option. Green's owners should temper their expectations for this contest, as we don't see him playing too many minutes Saturday.
Dec 20 - 7:31 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's game against the Rockets, meaning Dennis Schroder will draw another start.

Teague was considered doubtful heading into this game, so owners should have seen this coming. Teague should be considered day-to-day moving forward, and we will update his status as soon as we know more. Dennis Schroder will draw another start on Saturday, but he will unfortunately get the Patrick Beverley treatment. Shelvin Mack will also see a boost off of the bench, and is coming off a career-high 24 points on Wednesday.
Dec 20 - 7:02 PM

The Nets are in trade talks with the Kings over former All-Star point guard Deron Williams.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting it, so we know that there is some traction here. Talks are reportedly ongoing, but it is still unclear what other players are involved. Darren Collison would likely have to be included in any deal, but one obstacle to the talks is Sacramento's desire to obtain Mason Plumlee, who the Nets are enamored with. We will let you know if any further developments occur. Stay tuned.
Dec 20 - 6:51 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) has not been officially ruled out of Sunday's game, according to beat writer Anthony Slater.

A Pelicans writer previously reported that Durant had been ruled out, but it sounds as though he's closer to questionable. Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones would gain the most if Durant misses another game, but owners should check back for the latest after OKC's shootaround.
Dec 20 - 6:15 PM

Nicolas Batum, who intends on playing Saturday, was in pain and grimacing due to a sore wrist in pre-game warmups.

He's on the active list and all signs are pointing to him playing, but either way, he'll likely be limited by his wrist and knee, so it would be wise to look in another direction in daily leagues.
Dec 20 - 5:50 PM

Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play until Christmas.

He is dealing with an injury to his pelvis and the Hornets won't have him for at least two more games following today. He should be considered questionable for Friday Dec. 26 against OKC. While he's out, Gary Neal, Gerald Henderson and Marvin Williams will benefit. None are worth owning in standard leagues, though.
Dec 20 - 5:19 PM

Eric Bledsoe was terrific against the Knicks during a 99-90 win on Saturday with 25 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He carved up the Knicks and they didn't have anyone to cover him. Bledsoe has not been affected by the return of Isaiah Thomas, averaging 15.8 points, 4.8 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 triples. He can be viewed as a top-10 fantasy shooting guard.
Dec 20 - 4:08 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points against the Knicks during a win on Saturday, making 7-of-12 from the field for 22 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He played 32 minutes and didn't turn the ball over. The Suns have a handful of big runs while Thomas is on the floor and he has now played at least 26 minutes in four of his five games since returning from injury. Thomas can fill it up with triples and free throws, which is enough to keep him owned in standard leagues despite the lower playing time.
