Latest Headlines

James Harden (ankle) will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

He's certainly earning his max deal. Harden went through normal warmups and he's simply too good to even think about benching with this news. There were reports of Harden missing the game immediately following Tuesday's game and we'll be watching to see how he battles through the injury.

Brandon Ingram will start on Friday vs. the Suns, sending Marcelo Huertas back to the bench.

The rookie will be the starting SG next to Jordan Clarkson. Ingram has played 33 or more minutes in four out of his last five games, but he's going to see big minutes regardless of whether or not he starts moving forward.
Dec 9 - 8:51 PM

Matt Barnes (rest) will not play Friday night against the Knicks.

He is reportedly close to being arrested and charged with assaulting a woman, according to the NY Daily News. With Barnes out tonight, Omri Casspi should benefit the most while Arron Afflalo could get back in the rotation tonight.
Dec 9 - 8:40 PM

Salah Mejri will start against the Pacers on Friday.

He gets a really bad matchup tonight against Myles Turner, so coach Rick Carlisle will keep him on a short leash. Carlisle also yelled at Mejri on Wednesday. He may have some short-term value, but he has to play better.
Dec 9 - 8:21 PM

Nemanja Bjelica (sore right ankle) will not play against the Pistons on Friday.

This is a new injury for Bjelica. He's played well in the second unit to offer some space and has seen some run with the ones at times, too. With him out, Cole Aldrich and Shabazz Muhammad could see a couple extra minutes.
Dec 9 - 7:18 PM

Seth Curry (knee) will play against Indiana on Friday.

He's back after missing the last four due to a knee sprain. Curry does have a tougher spot for minutes with Devin Harris getting more run and Deron Williams playing some solid ball. Stephen's brother could be looking minutes around 20 in his first game back. He is worth a look in standard leagues, especially with the Mavs sliding in the standings.
Dec 9 - 6:56 PM

Norman Powell will be starting in place of DeMarre Carroll (rest) on Friday vs. Boston.

Powell has played relatively well when given extended minutes this season. In the four games he has started for Toronto, he is averaging 14.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 29.0 minutes. If you are looking for an inexpensive DFS option for Friday, Powell is certainly worth considering.
Dec 9 - 6:52 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) has been ruled out for Friday against the Celtics.

This was fully expected with Carroll playing on Thursday. He's played very well lately and his minutes are on the rise. Plus, the Raptors could drop the back-to-back limit. Norman Powell will likely get a start while Terrence Ross gets a hefty boost.
Dec 9 - 6:37 PM

Nene will play on Friday and wants to play on Saturday.

The Rockets are on a back-to-back set and have been limiting Nene. Montrezl Harrell has been solid, so it makes sense to rest Nene tomorrow. Clint Capela is having a big season and isn't affected here.
Dec 9 - 6:34 PM

Kevin Love (back) said he will "give it a try" against the Heat on Friday night.

He is going through his pre-game routine and it sounds like he'll be back out there. Love's back locked up on him on Wednesday and he's had a number of back problems before, so the Cavs may be careful with him. If he's limited, we'll see more of LeBron at the four with more of James Jones and the wings.
Dec 9 - 6:20 PM

J.R. Smith (knee) will not play against the Heat on Friday night.

It'll be Smith's second game out of the lineup due to the soreness in his knee. DeAndre Liggins will likely get the start again, but he only attempted two shots from the field on Wednesday. If Kevin Love (back) is also out, there should be plenty of minutes for the wings with LeBron James playing the four. Smith isn't a slam-dunk player to own in standard leagues, especially when he's cold and hurt.
Dec 9 - 5:53 PM

Nikola Vucevic (eye) will play against the Hornets on Friday night.

He will have protective goggles to cover his red right eye. Vucevic did play through his corneal abrasion on Wednesday and was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. He's fully expected to play near his 27.6 minutes per game from this year. Keep him active in a somewhat favorable matchup against the Hornets second unit.
