Latest Headlines

Joakim Noah (foot) and Marco Belinelli (ab strain) are inactive for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

Everyone knew that Noah and Belinelli weren't going to play, but the Bulls list all their players as "game-time decisions" no matter what. Coach Tom Thibodeau takes his cues from Bill Belichick. Noah said he's hoping to return sometime in the "next couple games" while Belinelli is still feeling some pain. Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson make for solid plug-n-plays on Tuesday night.

Joakim Noah (eye, left knee) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Noah's eye injury doesn't seem serious and fantasy owners should be more concerned about his left knee, which was surgically repaired over the summer. He's been on a minute-limit and hopefully this is just a precaution by Chicago in the second game of a back-to-back set. With Noah and Taj Gibson (ankle) both out, Pau Gasol will have a heavy workload and plenty of minutes will be available for Nikola Mirotic, with help from Doug McDermott.

The Kings are hopeful that Rudy Gay (Achilles) will be able to return for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

That means that Gay is not expected to be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. Omri Casspi has slid into the starting lineup with Gay sidelined, and he can be a nice short-term option for owners seeking some 3-point shooting. Stay tuned for an official update on Gay's status as we draw closer to Wednesday's tip.

The Lakers have been awarded a $4.85 million disabled player exception for Steve Nash, who is out for the season with nerve damage.

The Lakers are over the salary cap and this exception will allow them to sign a free agent for the remainder of the season, or possibly trade for a player in the final year of their contract. We should hear reports about possible targets for L.A. in the coming days, so owners in deep leagues should keep an eye out for updates.
Nov 25 - 7:18 PM

Andrew Bogut (eye) will start vs. the Heat on Tuesday.

He was downgraded to questionable but was a full participant during shootaround, and the bruise to his orbital bone shouldn't have any lasting effects. Fantasy owners can comfortably deploy him in a favorable matchup vs. Miami's frontcourt.
Nov 25 - 7:03 PM

Omer Asik (back) will return to action on Tuesday after missing the past four games.

Asik was a partial participant in Monday's practice and is finally ready to play after missing the past week, which will send Alexis Ajinca back to the bench and steal a few minutes from Ryan Anderson. Asik has been a terrific source of rebounds this year, as well as FG percentage and blocks, so owners relying on his big-man stats should activate him in all lineups.
Nov 25 - 7:02 PM

Darren Collison (quad) will not play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans, and Ramon Sessions will start.

Sessions will be asked to step it up on the offensive end tonight with Rudy Gay (Achilles) also sidelined, and he makes for a solid option in daily leagues. Ray McCallum will see some extended minutes off the bench, but Sessions is the guy to own here.
Nov 25 - 6:57 PM

Brandon Knight (quad) will start Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

Knight was listed as questionable heading into this one, but it appears he'll give it a go. He's averaging 18.1 points, 6.4 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 1.7 three-pointers per game this season, and has been a must-start guy this season. Get him active.
Nov 25 - 6:42 PM

O.J. Mayo will enter the starting lineup Tuesday vs. the Pistons, sending Khris Middleton back to the bench.

Coach Jason Kidd's rotations have been all over the place this season, so while Mayo enters the starting lineup tonight, he could just as easily head back the bench in the next one. Mayo has been hit-or-miss this season, averaging 10.9 points, 3.4 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers per game while shooting 40.3 percent from the field. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach to see how Mayo fares with the starting unit.
Nov 25 - 6:31 PM

Kris Humphries will enter the starting lineup in place of Nene (foot) for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

When given the minutes Humphries is a double-double threat, so he should serve as a fine plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Currently there is no timetable set for Nene's (foot) return, so if there's currently a guy on your roster you've been looking to cut, Humphries makes sense as a speculative add.
Nov 25 - 6:16 PM

Andrew Bogut (eye) has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

Bogut was a full participant during shootaround, so this news is a bit surprising. If Bogut is unable to go, Marreese Speights will be the primary beneficiary with Festus Ezeli seeing some extended run off the bench. The Heat have given up plenty of big lines to opposing centers this season, so Speights could be in for another big night. Stay tuned.
Nov 25 - 6:05 PM

Norris Cole (finger) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

Cole had an impressive 23-point debut on opening night, but since then he's failed to eclipse 12 points. Cole is averaging just 7.4 points, 3.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a starter, and he's just not worth owning in standard leagues. His return will likely translate to a loss of playing time for Shabazz Napier, making Napier an unattractive option in daily leagues.
