Brandon Roy (knee) remains out indefinitely and is a long shot to play again this season.

Roy is traveling with the team and was previously hopeful that he'd be able to play in at least one more game this year, but time is simply running out.

Joel Embiid smashed the Blazers' frontcourt on Wednesday for 28 points (11-of-19 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), 12 rebounds, two blocks and one assist.

Embiid also made a 3-pointer and he did his work in just 30 minutes, with neither Jusuf Nurkic nor Ed Davis able to slow him down. He has been dealing with some left knee soreness recently, so it can't hurt to double-check his status prior to Saturday's game, but he's not on the injury report.

Evan Turner started the third quarter on Wednesday and finished with four points, four boards, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes, making 2-of-7 FGs without any FT attempts.

Portland mustered just 37 points in the first half tonight, so Turner was promoted to generate some easy looks. It didn't make much difference and the Blazers lost by 20 points. Shabazz Napier's emergence has threatened his touches as a backup ball-handler, and the return of Al-Farouq Aminu could result in a logjam on the wings. In any case, the streaky Turner has been a liability outside of deep leagues.

Damian Lillard played through his right ankle injury on Wednesday, posting 30 points with six 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

The injury didn't look good when it happened on Monday, but Lillard received treatment every day and said the ankle responded better than he anticipated. He's a gamer who often plays at less than 100 percent, and the playing time tonight proves he'll be fine going forward. He finished 11-of-27 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line.

Joe Harris scored 18 points vs. his former team on Wednesday, going 7-of-10 from the field and 4-of-7 from deep with five boards, four assists, two steals and one block.

Harris did his damage in 29 minutes tonight, and he fell just shy of his career-high 19 points. His minutes have stabilized in the mid-20s, but tonight's line was the clear outlier -- Cleveland's defense isn't good, to put it lightly, and Harris is best viewed as a 3-point specialist.

John Collins made his first NBA start at power forward against the Clippers on Wednesday, making 7-of-9 from the field for 14 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and four steals in 38 minutes.

Even though the Hawks lost, this was a win for Collins as he kept his fouls down and was efficient as usual. He also mentioned he was excited about his matchup with Blake Griffin today. "When I mature in this league, that's want I want to do," Collins said before the game. The Hawks haven't been too aggressive on playing Collins at the four this season, but he likely has more chances going forward. He should be owned in standard leagues.

Nikola Jokic returned to game action in the second quarter on Wednesday.

He didn't roll his ankle too badly and maybe he just went to the ground because he was surprised he tweaked it on a push off. For now, it looks like Jokic is going to be OK.

Nikola Jokic (ankle) went to the locker room in the second quarter on Wednesday.

He looked to have stepped on P.J. Tucker's foot, but it didn't look bad. Jokic talked to the staff near the bench, and then limped to the locker room under his own power. He didn't have a bad limp compared to most ankle sprains. Hopefully, he can start the second half after being retaped. If not, Mason Plumlee will be busy and Kenneth Faried will also have to step up.

Nicolas Batum (left elbow contusion) will not return to Wednesday's game and Jeremy Lamb started in his place for the second half.

With about 90 seconds left in the first half, Batum had Otto Porter on his back and it looked like he banged his elbow against him. Batum was shaking his arm for a few seconds and then he was taken out. This is the same elbow that kept him out to start the season, so hopefully he didn't aggravate anything. Batum finished with four points, three rebounds and no turnovers in 14 minutes. Lamb and Dwayne Bacon could play more if he needs to miss time, but it didn't look bad.

Lou Williams started and Sindarius Thornwell moved to the bench against the Hawks on Wednesday.

When you're on an NBA-high nine-game losing streak, it's time for some changes. Williams was always going to get his minutes regardless, so this move doesn't affect him much. It'll be interesting to see how Thornwell fits in, but he has used his shots well since Pat Beverley (knee) went down.
Nov 22 - 7:42 PM

Gary Payton II, Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton and Thon Maker will start against the Suns on Wednesday.

Well that's a lineup. Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) is not going to play tonight, so the Bucks will go with a very small group against the up-tempo Suns. Brogdon should get an additional opportunity in this game after his numbers took a major hit since the Bledsoe deal.
Nov 22 - 7:37 PM

Greg Monroe will move to the bench on Wednesday against the Bucks.

He'll come off the bench in his revenge game. Coach Jay Triano as played Monroe just 21.3 minutes per game in three outings this year, so maybe that playing time drops into the teens. Monroe, Tyson Chandler and Alex Len could be very annoying to own with all three on the active roster.
