Latest Headlines

Isaiah Thomas scored 25 points to lead the Kings to victory in front of a raucous home crowd on Saturday, making 10-of-16 field goals with two 3-pointers, four boards, three assists and three steals.

Sleep Train Arena was wide awake tonight, as Kings' fans showed up en masse to support their beleaguered franchise. The Kings seemed inspired by the display and the offense flowed thanks to unusual ball movement, which resulted in 27 assists on 44 field goals. With heavy minutes, increasing shot attempts and some semblance of offensive freedom in February, Thomas' rest-of-season outlook is very bright.

Joel Embiid is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. OKC.

Embiid was a late scratch back on Sunday, but was able to suit up Tuesday vs. the Wolves and ended up logging a career-high 39 minutes en route to a 28-point, 12-rebound, eight-assist gem. Encouragingly, Embiid was able to participate in shootaround on Friday morning. We should get an update shortly. If Embiid is unable to play, Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes would divvy up minutes in the middle.

Coach Doc Rivers said that Austin Rivers (concussion) has passed concussion protocol but will not play Friday vs. the Wizards.

Coach Rivers told reporters he was not sure if Austin will be available to return Saturday night vs. the Heat in Miami. Milos Teodosic (rest) has also been ruled out of Friday's game, leaving the Clippers very thin at guard. Lou Williams, Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans will all be asked to log heavy minutes on Friday night.

Aaron Gordon (concussion) has been cleared from the NBA’s concussion protocol and will start Friday's game vs. Portland.

Gordon, who had missed each of Orlando's previous two games after colliding with Gary Harris last week vs. Denver, will look to resume his breakout season this evening. Mario Hezonja started in place of Gordon for both those contests. However, even though Gordon is returning, Hezonja will remain in the starting lineup on Friday, as Arron Afflalo (back spasms) has been ruled out of Friday's game.

Milos Teodosic (rest) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards, but will play Saturday night vs. the Heat.

Coach Doc Rivers told reporters that he doesn't want Teodosic, who returned from a foot injury last week, playing in back-to-back games yet. The Clippers backcourt will be shorthanded on Friday, as Austin Rivers (concussion) has also been ruled out of the game vs. Washington. Lou Williams and Sindarius Thornwell will see all the playing time they can handle. Jawun Evans will also log extended minutes.

The MRI on the Justise Winslow's left knee came back clean and he hopes to return within a week, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo.

Winslow has already been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Hornets. He will also very likely miss Saturday's game vs. the Clippers and Monday's game vs. Atlanta. However, it seems possible he could return for Wednesday's contest in Boston. James Johnson, Josh Richardson and Wayne Ellington will soak up additional minutes while Winslow is sidelined.

LeBron James hit 8-of-18 shots, a 3-pointer and 8-of-12 free throws on his way to 25 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes of Thursday's 121-112 win over the Lakers.

This was LeBron's 59th career triple-double, tying him with Larry Bird for No. 6 all time. LeBron sure doesn't look like he's been in the league for 15 seasons and might finish this one with the best numbers of his career.

Karl-Anthony Towns abused the Kings for 30 points, 14 rebounds (5 offensive), a season-high five assists, a steal, a season-high five blocks, two 3-pointers and zero turnovers on Thursday, all while hitting 11-of-16 shots in 35 minutes.

If you've been patiently waiting for KAT to blow up, it finally happened in a big way. He dominated against college teammate Willie Cauley-Stein and the Kings, and even though he's scored more at times this season, this was his best fantasy line of the year. He's rocking over his last four games, averaging 24.5 points, 13.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 4.0 blocks, 2.5 steals and 1.0 3-pointers. Let's go!
Dec 14 - 11:19 PM

John Collins returned from a six-game absence with a shoulder injury and picked up where he left off, hitting 7-of-10 shots for 15 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block off the bench in Thursday's 105-91 loss to the Pistons.

Welcome back! If Collins was dropped in your league, go get him before someone else does. He should get a ton of minutes for the tanking Hawks the rest of the way, as long as his shoulder injury is officially behind him. He played 20 minutes tonight, which isn't bad considering how long he was out.
Dec 14 - 10:48 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie went off for a career-high 26 points (9-of-17 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) in Thursday's loss to the Knicks.

He also flirted with a triple-double, finishing with seven assists, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes. The Nets have a gem on their hands and Dinwiddie has quickly become one of the team's best building blocks for the future. He should be considered a frontrunner for the waiver-wire pickup of the year and will maintain some nice value if/when D'Angelo Russell (knee) returns.
Dec 14 - 10:46 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (knee) said he's uncertain if he'll be able to play on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

He left Thursday's game with what appeared to be a non-contact injury, but the Knicks are calling it "left knee soreness" for now. Porzingis said after the game that he's not in "significant pain" and he was able to stand on his own, but he won't know more until the Knicks re-evaluate him on Friday morning. If KP can't play, Michael Beasley could see a nice bump in value and just dropped 15 points in 20 minutes vs. the Nets.
Dec 14 - 10:35 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson went off for a career-high 25 points in Thursday's 111-104 loss to the Knicks.

The Knicks had no answer for RHJ tonight and it didn't help that Kristaps Porzingis (knee) left the game early in the third quarter. RHJ was getting whatever he wanted on offense and finished 10-of-16 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, but he also posted a monster line with seven rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks. He's played 35 or more minutes in three out of his last four games and will continue to see heavy workloads with Trevor Booker out of the picture. If he ever adds a 3-point shot, RHJ's ceiling in fantasy would be insane.
