Paul Pierce shot 9-of-16 from the field for 23 points to go with seven boards, eight assists, one block and one 3-pointer during Sunday's 92-86 loss to the Blazers.

After a frigid 20-day span, Pierce is heating up over his last three games shooting a combined 21-of-38 from the field. He is the focal point on Boston's offense and has really made guys like Avery Bradley (eight points, three assists and one steal in 35 minutes), Courtney Lee (five points, two boards and two assists in 26 minutes) and Jason Terry (four points in 19 minutes) obsolete in most standard-league situations.

Jordan Clarkson or Lou Williams may start against the Rockets on Wednesday night.

The Lakers are running out of guards to use in their first unit, so coach Luke Walton will have to break up his second unit. Williams has been on fire in his last two and should have value regardless. Clarkson played a solid game on Monday and could also get a bump in value with a starting nod. Both are in play for DFS tonight.
Dec 7 - 6:40 PM

Nikola Jokic (wrist) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Nets.

To be clear, available to play doesn't necessarily mean he takes the court, and he could be eased into things after spending the past three games on the sidelines, so he's not a must-start guy with 10 games being played tonight. If he does get out there, however, he'll take away minutes from Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur.
Dec 7 - 6:30 PM

Brandon Jennings will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cavs, with Derrick Rose (back) unavailable.

Per-36 minutes this season, Jennings is averaging 11.6 points, 8.6 dimes, 4.4 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.7 triples per contest, so he's certainly on the radar as a potential DFS punt play or streamer option with a favorable matchup against the Cavs.
Dec 7 - 6:17 PM

Derrick Rose (sore lower back) will be unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

He said he had back spasms on Tuesday, but also said his side, leg and everything was fatigued. He's also going to get an MRI to make sure everything is OK. Considering Rose's injury history and lengthy time to recover, he's likely looking at more games out of the lineup. Brandon Jennings should get a boost in playing time and is worth a look for his short-term boost. Ron Baker should also be in the rotation tonight.
Dec 7 - 6:15 PM

Amir Johnson will start and Jonas Jerebko will move to the bench against the Magic on Wednesday.

This makes sense to go with a bigger frontcourt against the Magic. Johnson may also see a bump in playing time because the Celtics won't go with as many three-guard lineups with Jae Crowder at the four. He's still a risky player to use tonight and doesn't have much value once Isaiah Thomas (groin) comes back.
Dec 7 - 5:39 PM

Marcus Smart will start for Isaiah Thomas (groin) against the Magic on Wednesday.

This was very obvious all day, but it's official now. Smart has been coming off the bench and has seen his minutes drop since Jae Crowder and Al Horford have been back. He may not run the offense quite as much, but Smart should see minutes in the mid 30s and add across-the-board production. He'll get a nice short-term boost while Thomas is on the shelf. Expect to see more minutes for Terry Rozier tonight, as well.
Dec 7 - 5:36 PM

Reggie Jackson will start Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

There was some fear that Jackson would be rested on the second game of this back-to-back set, but he only played 18 minutes on Tuesday, so he should be closer to the mid-20s tonight. Go ahead and fire him up.
Dec 7 - 5:34 PM

E'Twaun Moore (toe) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the 76ers.

Moore sat out Monday's game, and it's not a great sign that he's still being listed as questionable despite having just had a full three days off to rest up. We should have another update following Thursday morning's shootaround, but if he's out, Buddy Hield will have another opportunity to start with Langston Galloway flirting with 30 minutes off the bench. Stay tuned.
Dec 7 - 5:32 PM

Vince Carter (hip) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Blazers.

He's been ruled out the day before each of the last three games, so this is a step in the right direction. The Grizzlies have won each of their last four without Carter with guys like Troy Williams and Troy Daniels stepping up. If Carter does return, that may take some minutes from the Troys and maybe from Tony Allen, as well. Carter is not worth owning in most leagues.
Dec 7 - 5:02 PM

Larry Nance (knee) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

He should resume his 20-minute reserve role, which will take away some minutes from Julius Randle. Nance has been a sneaky top-75 guy in 9-cat leagues this season with averages of 7.7 points, 5.8 boards, 1.2 steals and just 0.6 turnovers per game on 60.0 percent shooting from the field, so feel free to get him active.
Dec 7 - 1:07 PM

Jrue Holiday (turf toe) said his recovery has been going well, but it's still too early to tell if he'll be able to play Thursday vs. the 76ers.

Holiday also said that a turf toe injury can be "excruciating," and if he could walk on his hands he would, so he's looking doubtful for Thursday's matchup with the 76ers. If he's out, Tim Frazier will benefit most operating as New Orleans' starting point guard. Stay tuned.
