Arron Afflalo (calf) did not participate in shootaround and is viewed as a longshot to play on Friday against the Celtics.

Afflalo has missed two straight games with the injury already. If he sits again on Friday, look for J.J. Redick to play big minutes once again, with rookie Maurice Harkless receiving more playing time as well as second-year man E'Twaun Moore.

Kenneth Faried bounced back nicely in 24 minutes against the Magic on Saturday, scoring 19 points with 10 rebounds and one assist.

He was a DNP-CD on Thursday and played with a lot of energy. Faried's chance at playing time was due to Wilson Chandler (hip) not playing tonight, so it's tough to tell where he fits in once Chandler is back. He's not really a part of their long-term plans and Juan Hernangomez looked great, so Faried is only a lukewarm pickup.

Wesley Matthews stayed hot on Saturday vs. Houston, scoring 26 points on 8-of-22 shooting.

The Mavericks were blown out by 22 points, but Matthews still played 35 minutes. He added three rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers, hitting 5-of-7 from the line as well. Matthews is on an absolute tear over his last five games, averaging 22.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.0 steal and 5.0 3-pointers on 46.2 percent shooting.

Kemba Walker was diagnosed with a left knee contusion after Saturday's loss to Cleveland.

He banged knees with Lebron James in the final few minutes and was forced to go the bench where he could be seen clutching his knee. Luckily, the Hornets have listed him as day-to-day and there's no word of any tests for now. This is the same knee that he had surgery on during the offseason, but Walker said after the game that he doesn't expect to miss time. Walker finished with 24 points, five assists, one rebound, one steal and three triples in 30 minutes. If you're in a deep league and need a guard, adding Ramon Sessions just in case isn't a bad idea.

Kelly Oubre scored a season-high 19 points against the Bucks on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, one assist, three steals and three 3-pointers.

Coach Scott Brooks has talked about playing Oubre next to Otto Porter and it worked extremely well tonight. That combo actually closed this game out and it almost certainly will be used more often. He's seen his playing time increase in each of his last four, so this is a very noteworthy trend. Oubre is on the radar as a pickup in 14-team leagues or competitive standard leagues. Obviously don't expect a line this good.

C.J. McCollum lit up the Pacers for 34 points on 12-of-22 shooting in Saturday's 118-111 loss.

He had 19 points in the third quarter alone, finishing with four rebounds, four assists, three blocks and three turnovers in 37 minutes. He's now scored 20+ points in four straight games which matches a career best, and he's also hit 4+ triples in each of those games which is a career high. He's returning second-round value in standard leagues and isn't slowing down.

Thaddeus Young broke out of his slump on Saturday vs. the Blazers, scoring 24 points with six 3-pointers, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 40 minutes.

Not bad for a guy who hit seven total triples last season. Young and Paul George sparked a comeback for the Pacers and helped them overcome a 20-point deficit. Young shot 9-of-13 from the field with a few turnovers, but it looks like he wasn't lying when he said he spent the offseason working on his outside shot -- he's now hit 25 triples though 24 games. He was only averaging 9.0 points and 5.4 rebounds in his previous five, so maybe this outburst will get him going.
Dec 10 - 9:52 PM

Paul George went off for 37 points on 13-of-27 shooting in Saturday's 118-111 win over the Blazers on Saturday.

He played 36 minutes Saturday despite logging 40 minutes the previous night, adding five rebounds, three assists, three steals and five triples with a pair of turnovers. He also hit 6-of-7 free throws on the night. The Pacers have been inconsistent, but George hasn't, scoring 21+ point in each of his last four games. On a side note, the Pacers became just the second team to overcome a 20-point deficit this season.
Dec 10 - 9:39 PM

Dante Exum will start over Shelvin Mack on Saturday against the Kings.

The ol' late switch from the Jazz. This doesn't change much for Exum or Mack with their fantasy value.
Dec 10 - 9:12 PM

Anthony Davis (rest) has been ruled out for Saturday night against the Clippers.

Wow. The Pelicans are on the front end of a back-to-back set and coach Alvin Gentry said Davis could use a night off. This is a death blow to anyone who used him in DFS tonight without any heads up of this move coming. Davis will be all set for Sunday in Phoenix. Terrence Jones will be busy tonight.
Dec 10 - 9:10 PM

Jrue Holiday (toe) and E'Twaun Moore (toe) will not play vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

Tim Frazier and Buddy Hield will start in the backcourt, but Langston Galloway will see minutes at both guard spots off the bench and has been the better play for the past two games. Holiday and Moore are both day-to-day, and their next chance to play will be on Sunday vs. the Suns, though that seems unlikely at this point.
Dec 10 - 9:09 PM

Austin Rivers will start against the Pelicans on Saturday.

With Blake Griffin (knee) out, Luc Mbah a Moute will likely slide to the four to accommodate Rivers. Griffin will be back for Monday's game vs. Portland, so leaving Rivers on the wire is the right call. With that said, he could have a "revenge game" tonight.
