Latest Headlines

The Jazz did not make any trades at Thursday's deadline.

Shockingly, the Jazz weren't involved in the rumor mill at all over the last 48 hours. They'll move forward with both Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, who will both be unrestricted free agents after the season. It also means that they'll continue to bury the talents of Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter on the bench. Fantasy owners that had been stashing Favors for the last couple months can only sigh. Don't expect anything more than the 22.0 minutes per game he's getting right now.

Nikola Pekovic (wrist, ankle) will be re-evaluated next week.

That means we can rule him out for Sunday and probably Monday with his ankle issues. Pekovic could play on Wednesday, but we highly doubt it. Gorgui Dieng hasn't been too involved in the offense, but his output in boards and blocks make him a must-own player.

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) is questionable to face the Nuggets on Friday.

He's likely looking at a game-time call for the 9 p.m. EST tip in Denver. With Thomas out on Wednesday, Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe and especially Gerald Green all stepped up to help get the win. It should be a similar scenario should IT3 miss his second game.
Nov 28 - 2:43 PM

Mo Williams (illness) will return to the lineup against the Lakers.

He is not expected to be limited. Williams traveling with the team on Wednesday was a great sign he would be ready to go and his fantasy owners should plug him back into their lineups. Zach LaVine will take a hit while Andrew Wiggins and Corey Brewer should have less ball-handling responsibility.
Nov 28 - 2:40 PM

Anderson Varejao (rib contusion) is questionable to play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He did not practice on Friday, but this injury doesn't sound too serious. Of course, Varejao has missed a lot of games in his career and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss time. If he does, Tristan Thompson would likely start while the Cavs could get Brendan Haywood in the mix.
Nov 28 - 2:31 PM

Tony Wroten will miss at least one week with a sprained right knee.

He played through this injury on Wednesday and is going to be re-evaluated on Dec. 5. Wroten was turning the ball over a ton and his fantasy owners in standard leagues shouldn't have a problem cutting him. Meanwhile, K.J. McDaniels has a chance to get in the starting lineup now while Alexey Shved could get more run.
Nov 28 - 2:27 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is doubtful to face the Spurs on Friday.

His knee injury is not an issue, but now the Kings are hit with a sudden illness for their team's MVP. Cousins has eight double-doubles in a row and the Kings are going to be a mess on offense even if Rudy Gay (Achilles) plays. If he's out, it'll likely be a group effort of Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams, Carl Landry and Reggie Evans.
Nov 28 - 2:22 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) went through a full contact practice on Friday.

The Heat will not commit to his status for Sunday, but this is obviously a great sign. Wade has been out for seven games with his hamstring injury and it's led to a lot of production out of Mario Chalmers in that stretch. Wade was also at 32.4 minutes per game before the injury and that is likely to drop. His owners will want to check back on Sunday.
Nov 28 - 2:15 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said Reggie Jackson and Russell Westbrook will get "a lot of minutes" together.

Westbrook will likely see minutes around 30, so Jackson should get a high usage in his 18 minutes or so in the second unit. Plus, it looks like Jackson will get around 10-15 minutes next to Westbrook, which puts him in the 30-minute neighborhood as well. With Kevin Durant (foot) still out, Jackson should still be a must-start guy in most formats.
Nov 28 - 2:02 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) said that he is fine, and will play Friday vs. the Suns.

Danilo only managed to play 8.7 minutes during his last outing, checking out due to soreness in his surgically repaired left knee, but his return to the lineup tonight is an encouraging sign. He's by no means a must-own player in standard leagues, but he was starting to get it going before his injury scare on Wednesday, so if you're in a deeper league and have available roster space, stashing him wouldn't be the worst idea.
Nov 28 - 1:29 PM

Head coach Steve Kerr is considering David Lee (hamstring) doubtful to play Friday or Sunday.

Lee will most likely return for one of the Warriors upcoming home games, either Tuesday vs. Orlando, or Thursday vs. New Orleans. With the Warriors currently sitting on a record of 12-2, and Draymond Green excelling as the starting power forward, there's just no need for Lee to rush a return. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation upon his return, and there are no guarantees he will take the starting job away from Green.
Nov 28 - 1:19 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

With Sefolosha out, DeMarre Carroll will get all the run he can handle and he has a favorable matchup vs. New Orleans. Carroll logged 38.7 minutes sans Thabo during his last outing, scoring 14 points (two 3-pointers), to go with three rebounds an assist, and a block, and should have similar production tonight. Think about deploying him as a low-budget play in daily leagues.
