Latest Headlines

Victor Claver (ankle) is not expected to travel with the Blazers on their upcoming five-game road trip.

His sprain seems to be severe, and the Blazers will compensate by using Nicolas Batum as a backup PF, while also giving more minutes to Joel Freeland.

Tyreke Evans (right knee contusion) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Rockets.

Evans is averaging 23.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.0 treys over his last five games, so his fantasy owners will have to keep their fingers crossed that he'll be able to play Thursday night. If Evans sits, Austin Rivers and Luke Babbitt would see increased playing time, though neither are a very attractive plug-and-play option.

Derrick Rose (illness) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Knicks.

Besides the fact that Rose has played in 11 consecutive games, the silver lining here is that his questionable status has nothing to do with his knees. We'll update his status as soon as we know more, but Rose looks to be headed towards a game-time decision for Thursday's game. If Rose sits against the Knicks, Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks would become viable plug-and-play options while Jimmy Butler would also see an uptick in his fantasy value.

Lance Stephenson (pelvis) is doubtful for the Hornets' next two games with a pelvic sprain.

The Hornets play the 76ers on Friday and the Jazz on Saturday and it looks like they'll have to do so without Stephenson. We'll update his status after Friday's shootaround, but fantasy owners can expect to see more of Gerald Henderson, Marvin Williams, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Gary Neal if Stephenson is out for the weekend.

Carmelo Anthony (knee soreness) is now expected to miss Thursday's game against the Bulls, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

Updating a previous item, Melo is now expected to sit Thursday night as he's dealing with knee soreness that Isola is reporting will require surgery after the season. With Amare Stoudemire (rest) already declared out for Thursday night, Tim Hardaway Jr. should see all the minutes he can handle if Anthony does indeed sit.

Joakim Noah (ankle) is expected to play against the Knicks on Thursday.

Noah was a participant in shootaround and is expected to be available when the Bulls take on the Knicks Thursday night. Noah's owners can feel free to plug him back into their starting lineups, while Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will see their fantasy value take a hit upon Noah's return.

Amare Stoudemire (rest) will miss Thursday's game against the Bulls.

Carmelo Anthony is also questionable for Thursday, so we may see a very different lineup when the Knicks take the floor against the Bulls. Quincy Acy, Samuel Dalembert, and Travis Wear are likely to inherit most of STAT's minutes on Thursday, though none are worth a look for fantasy purposes outside of daily games.

Carmelo Anthony (knee soreness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bulls.

Amare Stoudemire (rest) has already been declared out for the game, so the Knicks will be extremely short-handed for Thursday's game if Melo sits. We'll update his status after shootaround, but Tim Hardaway Jr. could be in for big minutes if Melo joins Amare on the Knicks' bench Thursday night.

Darko Milicic will make his pro boxing debut on Thursday.

In a lighter note, the No. 2 overall pick of the 2003 NBA Draft will Radovan Radojcin in a "prestige fight" during the "Soul Night of Champions" event in Serbia on December 18. Pistons fans may want to turn away, but Darko's promotional video can be found in the link below.

Rajon Rondo responded to recent trade speculation by saying that trade rumors have become a way of life for him.

With reports swirling that the Celtics are shopping their star point guard, Rondo said, "[trade rumors have been] a way of life since I’ve been here. It’s just part of it." Nothing is imminent, but a rumored trade to the Mavericks would put a minor dent in Rondo's fantasy value, while owners with an extra roster spot will want to give strong consideration to taking a flier on Marcus Smart.

James Harden added his newest piece of evidence in his bid for MVP during a 115-111 overtime win over the Nuggets on Wednesday scoring 41 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He made 11-of-21 from the field and 18-of-21 from the field in 45 minutes. This line is pretty ridiculous and he became the sixth player since 1985-86 to have more than 20 attempts from the field, more than 20 attempts from the line, and at least 10 assists. The other five are Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Allen Iverson and Kenny Anderson. Harden is good.
Dec 18 - 3:52 AM

Dwight Howard played 43 minutes in an overtime win over the Nuggets on Wednesday with 24 points, 16 boards, one assist and four blocks on 7-of-16 from the field and 10-of-15 from the line.

The Rockets starters lived at the charity stripe with 48 attempts while their bench didn't have any. As for Howard, he was as dominant as he has been all season and helped keep the Nuggets out of the paint. His 43 minutes are a very encouraging sign and his fantasy owners should have some shred of confidence in him now. Of course, it makes a lot of sense to sell high considering how much time he missed from an injury that came out of nowhere.
