Latest Headlines

Ryan Anderson (viral infection) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Wizards.

Anderson missed Tuesday's game with the illness and hasn't been practicing with the team, either. He's apparently ready to go, although we highly doubt he'll be 100 percent. Owners should be prepared for a less-than-normal night from Anderson and it's likely rookie Anthony Davis will see an expanded role if Anderson is limited.

T.J. Warren made 13-of-20 shots to finish Sunday's win vs. Chicago with 27 points, adding seven rebounds, two blocks, one steal and one assist in 33 minutes.

The scoring leaps out, of course, but owners in category-based leagues will appreciate Warren's defensive stats tonight -- he came in averaging 0.7 steals and 0.8 blocks, and any increase in those categories will give him a nice boost. Warren is proving himself as a go-to option offensively, after Devin Booker, and the rebuilding Suns will feed him the ball all season.

Jimmy Butler lit up the Pistons on Sunday with 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting, 10 rebounds, five steals, four assists and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

Butler drew a critical foul on a 3-point shot with 6.2 seconds remaining, giving him a chance to tie the game, but the 90.5 percent FT shooter missed the third attempt. The Wolves' three-game win streak was snapped, but fantasy owners are still thrilled -- this was the second time all season that Butler has shot better than 50% from the field, and he's now scored 21+ points in four of his past five games. He's stealing the ball at a furious clip and it's safe to assume that the buy-low window has closed.

Jamal Crawford (migraine) didn't play after halftime on Sunday, which leaves him questionable to face the Hornets on Monday.

Crawford finished with six points on 3-of-6 shooting and two turnovers in seven minutes. The Wolves lost a close game tonight, 100-97, so Crawford's absence was more than precautionary. If he can't go vs. Charlotte, expect Andrew Wiggins and Jimmy Butler to log huge minutes, with Shabazz Muhammad and Tyus Jones potentially getting extra run.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 16 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and four turnovers in a losing effort vs. Golden State on Sunday.

RHJ's assists and rebounds were both season-highs, and he seems locked into mid-round roto value through 15 games. The biggest leap has come offensively, with his 14.1 points on 47.8% FGs and 83.1% FTs, all of which shatter his previous career-highs. He's just 22 years old and we've yet to glimpse his fantasy ceiling.
Nov 19 - 9:07 PM

Allen Crabbe tied his season-high with 25 points on Sunday, hitting 9-of-19 shots with six 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

The Nets rank No. 1 in the league in pace, while the Warriors are No. 5, so this was bound to be a high-scoring affair. In addition to the fast pace, Brooklyn launched a ridiculous 48 three-point attempts tonight. Crabbe's shot attempts were easily a team-high, and he looks like a clear beneficiary with D'Angelo Russell (knee) on the shelf indefinitely.
Nov 19 - 9:06 PM

Klay Thompson notched his third career double-double on Sunday with 23 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of action.

The Warriors fell into an early hole vs. the Sixers on Saturday, but tonight it was their inability to hold the lead that nearly cost them -- they held on to beat the Nets, 118-111. Klay stepped up offensively with Kevin Durant (ankle) out tonight, finishing 10-of-17 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, and he's on cruise control for fantasy purposes.
Nov 19 - 9:04 PM

Playing in the second of back-to-back games, Stephen Curry lit up the Nets for 39 points (14-of-24 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

Kevin Durant (ankle) was out tonight and Steph took full advantage of the expanded offensive role -- he's now scored 30+ points in consecutive games for the first time all season. Curry is flirting with the No. 1 spot in roto leagues, and he joins Nikola Jokic are the only players with top-10 fantasy value who are playing under 33.0 minutes per game.
Nov 19 - 9:01 PM

Myles Turner broke out for a season-high 25 points during Sunday's road victory, making 11-of-14 shots with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 32 minutes.

Since returning from a concussion and neck injury in early November, Turner was averaging a modest 12.0 points, 7.3 boards, 1.1 assists, 0.6 threes and 0.4 blocks. He also posted 2.5 blocks per game in that span, which salvaged his value despite atypically poor percentages -- 41.6% from the field and 70.8% from the FT line. It was only a matter of time before he got back on track as an elite big man, and the buy-low window just slammed shut.
Nov 19 - 8:02 PM

The Pacers won in Miami on Sunday, aided by Bojan Bogdanovic's season-high 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting, including a 6-of-10 mark from downtown.

Indiana has won two consecutive games, improving their record to 9-8, which puts them in the middle of the Eastern Conference teams chasing Detroit (10-5), Toronto (11-5) and Boston (15-2). Bogdanovic has been key for the Pacers' early success, and tonight he added three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes. He's holding steady as a late-round value with an emphasis on 3-pointers.
Nov 19 - 7:59 PM

Josh Richardson was poked in his left eye late during Sunday's game, which he finished with 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting, two assists, two steals, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Richardson exited with 3:26 remaining in the game and Miami trailing by 24 points, so this might have been a simple precaution. He was one of the only bright spots for the Heat tonight and his shot was finally falling, after a combined 3-of-17 mark in his previous two games, so hopefully he'll be ready to roll vs. Boston on Wednesday.
Nov 19 - 7:58 PM

Dion Waiters' shot abandoned him on Sunday and he finished scoreless on 0-of-10 shooting, adding just two rebounds, two steals, one rebound and one turnover in 26 minutes.

Fantasy owners aren't relying on Waiters for solid FG percentages, given that he's at 41.9% on the season and 41.4% for his career. That doesn't excuse this dud, since his value is tethered to scoring (16.3 points per game) and 3-pointers (2.0), and he'll face another stiff test vs. Boston's league-leading defense on Wednesday. He's just a borderline value in 12-team leagues.
