Corey Brewer scored a career-high 29 points with one board, five steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Sixers on Thursday.

He was fouled on a 3-pointer by Damien Wilkins with 2.1 seconds left and made all three to give Denver the lead for good. The Nuggets extended their winning streak to 14 games and are playing the best basketball in the NBA this side of the Miami Heat. Brewer benefited from Wilson Chandler being out and with Chandler expected to miss more time, he's worth a long look in standard leagues.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Kings and Treveon Graham will start in his place.

MKG went from probable to out, and it's currently unclear if he'll be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. This will be Graham's first start of the season, and while he's sure to see some extended minutes with the starting unit, Jeremy Lamb still makes for the better target as he could be looking at minutes in the 30s tonight.

The Bucks have fired head coach Jason Kidd, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Bucks assistant coach Joe Prunty will fill in as the interim head coach while Milwaukee looks for Kidd's long-term replacement, and it'll be interesting to see if he alters the rotations. Milwaukee management reportedly decided to make the move after the Bucks fell to the No. 8 seed out East, and there had been discontent brewing between both parties for a couple years now. Kidd's constantly changing rotations were a nightmare, so perhaps his departure will bring some stability.

Jay Triano said there will be a lineup change for Monday's game in Milwaukee.

Greg Monroe has been collecting DNP-CDs for the better part of a month now, but perhaps he'll be able to get back into the rotation tonight. Triano could also move Devin Booker to the one in order to bring Josh Jackson or Isaiah Canaan into the starting five at the two, which would result in Tyler Ulis heading to the second unit. Check back for another update closer to tip-off.

Jerryd Bayless (sore left wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game in Memphis.

This will be Bayless' second straight game on the sidelines, and with both him and J.J. Redick (leg) unavailable, Timothe Luwawu should be looking at another start with T.J. McConnell flirting with minutes in the 30s, and both those guys are on the radar as deep league streamers. After Monday's game the 76ers will take on the Bulls on Wednesday, and for now, we'll consider Bayless questionable for that one.

John Wall (illness) is expected to play vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

Wall missed the morning shootaround, but it sounds like the Wizards were just playing it safe. He's a little risky in DFS, but his season-long owners can deploy him in their lineups. We'll have an update after warmups.

Marquese Chriss had a second MRI on his hip which showed that the injury is improving.

While this is good news, Chriss still doesn't have a timetable to return and his status for this week is up in the air. Dragan Bender will have a heavy workload while Chriss is out, but he's been a hit-or-miss fantasy option.
Jan 22 - 1:30 PM

Goran Dragic (knee) and Tyler Johnson (ankle) will not play in Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

Dragic has a bruised right knee and will miss his second straight game. This is likely a pain tolerance issue, so we'll continue to list him as day-to-day. With both Dragic and Johnson out, Josh Richardson and James Johnson will handle the ball a ton, while Wayne Ellington will get a nice bump and is coming off a 26-point game. All three are excellent fantasy options.
Jan 22 - 1:04 PM

Jimmy Butler (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

We still don't have many details, and the Wolves are simply calling the issue a sore right knee. With Butler out for a second straight game, the Wolves may turn to Nemanja Bjelica again -- he started in Butler's place vs. the Raptors and had eight points, six rebounds, two steals and one triple in 26 minutes. Andrew Wiggins dropped 29 points on 21 shots in his last game, so look for him to step up again. Looking ahead, the Wolves play again on Wednesday vs. the Blazers and Thursday vs. the Warriors.

Kevin Love (illness) said he feels better and that he will play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

He said he felt dizzy when he was pulled early from Saturday's game and the Cavaliers gave him the day off practice on Sunday, but he was back with the team on Monday morning. He should be ready to roll and could see his normal allotment of minutes vs. the Spurs. Coach Tyronn Lue did talk about finding more touches for Love, so we'll see if it actually happens.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Michael C. Wright of ESPN, Kawhi Leonard and his camp have been described as "distant" and "disconnected" from the Spurs.

According to the report, "Months of discord centering on elements of treatment, rehabilitation and timetables for return from a right quadriceps injury have had a chilling impact" on Leonard's relationship with the front office and coaching staff. Wojnarowski adds that "there is work to be done to repair what has been until now a successful partnership," so the Spurs find themselves in rare territory for a franchise that is considered to be one of the best in all of sports. Spurs GM RC Buford has refuted these claims, but did add that this process has been "difficult for everyone." The superstar forward remains without a timetable to return as he continues to rehab his troublesome quad injury.

Rodney Hood (leg) will not play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

This is his second game in a row on the shelf and it's not a great sign that he's getting ruled out this early. For now, consider him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons. Joe Ingles is coming off a 21-point game vs. the Clippers, and guys like Joe Johnson and Alec Burks will get a small bump in value off the bench with Hood out.
