Gordon Hayward (shoulder) will not play until after the All-Star break.

Hayward will have the All-Star break to rest his injured shoulder, and although he's being listed as day-to-day, it's clear that Hayward doesn't have a true timetable for his return. Randy Foye, Alec Burks and Marvin Williams will continue to see a boost while Hayward is sidelined.

Josh Smith fell two assists shy of a triple-double in Tuesday's game, scoring 11 points with 10 boards and eight assists vs. Milwaukee.

Smoove added one steal and three blocks, and he even made a 3-pointer -- he's now a combined 4-of-21 (19.0 percent) beyond the arc. The bad news is that he was just 4-of-10 from the field and 2-of-10 at the FT line. He's a mid-round value if you can ignore his percentages, but that's not a luxury most fantasy owners have.

Andre Drummond kept up his momentum on Tuesday with a season-high 23 points (11-of-15 FGs) in a loss vs. the Bucks, adding 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 32 minutes.

The points, rebounds and defensive stats are great to see, but fantasy owners are probably most pleased with his 11-of-15 shooting -- remarkably, this is just the second time all season that Drummond made more than half of his shots. The career 59.7 percent shooter is just 39.7 percent through 13 games and there's nowhere to go but up, so consider making a buy-low offer (if you still can) to his frustrated fantasy owners.

O.J. Mayo made his first start of the season vs. the Pistons on Tuesday, scoring 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Jason Kidd has been juggling his lineups through the first month of the season, and tonight Mayo got the nod ahead of Khris Middleton. "We looked at [Mayo as a starter] at practice yesterday and as coaches we thought it looked good," Kidd said, by way of explanation. Mayo has enough upside to be worth a speculative add, especially since the Bucks won tonight's game, but don't be surprised if he's back in a reserve role by the end of the week.

Derrick Rose will not return to Tuesday's game due to left hamstring tightness.

Rose's left hamstring caused him to miss four games prior to his return on Monday, and he didn't last long before going back on the injury report. The daily guessing game about his status will continue on Friday when the Bulls play in Boston. Considering the Bulls' protective stance regarding their former MVP, and the fact that hamstring injuries are easy to aggravate, we're not optimistic that he'll be in uniform vs. Rajon Rondo and the Celtics. Check back for updates on Tuesday, and anticipate Kirk Hinrich starting at PG if Rose misses more games.

Andrew Bogut's bruised orbital bone didn't slow him down vs. the Heat on Tuesday, as he notched eight points, 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in a road victory.

We'll keep an eye on Bogut leading up to Wednesday's game in Orlando, but all signs point to him being ready for a tough matchup with Nikola Vucevic. The oft-injured big man looks rejuvenated under Steve Kerr this year, and is flirting with top-50 value despite playing only 25 minutes per game.
Nov 25 - 10:23 PM

Stephen Curry torched the Heat for a season-high 40 points in Tuesday's road win, making 12-of-19 field goals including a season-high eight 3-pointers.

This was just Curry's second 20-point performance in the Warriors' past seven games, but his fantasy value hasn't suffered thanks to his ability to fill up the stat sheet. He went 8-of-9 from the FT line and a ridiculous 8-of-11 from downtown, as the Heat simply couldn't defend him once he started feeling it. Reggie Miller wrote on Twitter that Curry may have overtaken Drazen Petrovic as the greatest 3-point shooter Miller has ever seen -- that's lofty praise, but it's hard to argue otherwise.

Paul Pierce had 14 points in Tuesday's home loss vs. Atlanta, and in the process he passed Jerry West to become the 17th-leading scorer in NBA history.

Pierce overtook West with point number 25,194, a testament to his durability as well as his elite scoring ability. The 37-year-old has settled in nicely with the Wizards this year, returning mid-round value with averages of 13.1 points, 1.3 triples, 5.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.7 steals per game.
Nov 25 - 9:50 PM

Jeff Teague had 28 points (8-of-18 FGs, 12-of-15 FTs), three assists, two steals and one block in Tuesday's impressive road win, giving him three straight games with at least 20 points.

Teague has three single-digit scoring games this year but they shouldn't obscure his value, as he's currently the 12th best point guard to own in 9-cat leagues. Kyle Korver is shooting lights-out from beyond the arc, and guards Shelvin Mack and Dennis Schroder are also playing well in reserve roles, giving Atlanta enviable backcourt depth.
Nov 25 - 9:47 PM

Bulls F Cameron Bairstow will start Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Joakim Noah (eye, knee) and Taj Gibson (ankle) are out and Pau Gasol is filling in at center, and coach Tom Thibodeau likely didn't want to disrupt his bench by starting Nikola Mirotic at PF. Bairstow has played a total of 11 minutes this season and fantasy owners should leave him on the waiver wire.
Nov 25 - 9:13 PM

John Henson was helped off the court on Tuesday with a sprained left foot, and he will not return.

He began limping after challenging a shot on defense and the Bucks quickly diagnosed him with a sprained foot. If the injury is serious enough to cost him any games, a few extra minutes would be available for Larry Sanders, Zaza Pachulia and Ersan Ilyasova.
Nov 25 - 8:49 PM

Joakim Noah has been diagnosed with a left knee effusion, more commonly referred to as water on the knee, and he will not play on Tuesday.

Noah also has an eye injury, but his surgically-repaired left knee is a more serious concern for fantasy owners. Pau Gasol will shift to center in his absence and Nikola Mirotic is a terrific speculative pick-up, having averaged 13.3 points, 2.0 threes and 7.0 rebounds over Chicago's past four games. The Bulls play in Boston on Friday, so Noah's owners will have to stay alert for updates over the next few days. At the moment we're considering him day-to-day.
