Doc Rivers says Avery Bradley is not expected to practice Saturday afternoon.

Bradley suffered a bruised collarbone during Friday's game. He went to the locker room in the second half but eventually returned to action. Bradley deemed himself "fine" and he expects to play Sunday, but we'll sideline him just to be safe.

James Harden hit 8-of-18 shots, four 3-pointers and 12-of-13 free throws for 32 points, eight boards, four assists and two steals in Saturday's comeback win over the Mavs.

Harden was fouled late, made the shot and hit the free throw for a tough 3-point play to put the Rockets ahead for good on Saturday. He scored just six points on Tuesday, but bounced back for 24 points on Thursday and 32 tonight.

Chris Bosh made 13-of-20 from the field for 32 points against the Magic during a 99-92 win on Saturday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

His ability to knock down jumpers carried the Heat tonight. Bosh entered tonight with an effective field goal percentage of 47.0 on his jumper, which is tremendous for a center and also better than his percentage at the rim (46.8). After a small slump, Bosh looks like he's ready to roll.

Mario Chalmers was in total control of the offense against the Magic on Saturday, making 10-of-16 from the field for 24 points with five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

His defense wasn't as bad as usual in this game either. Chalmers' ability to play both guard spots has been huge for the Heat right now and he'll certainly earn his minutes even when Dwyane Wade (hamstring) is back, especially because Wade's minutes will be monitored. Chalmers should be owned in all leagues.

Donatas Motiejunas played a whopping 38 minutes (season high) and hit 5-of-7 shots on his way to 14 points, 12 rebounds and a 3-pointer on Saturday.

He also had five turnovers, but who cares? He's been getting some decent run with Dwight Howard out, but this was easily his best game of the season. He had played just 18 minutes in each of his last two games, but got big run tonight, and it paid off. He's still a shaky play in daily or standard leagues, but as long as Howard and Terrence Jones are out, he's at least worth a look from night to night.
Nov 22 - 11:45 PM

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) expects to play vs. the Knicks on Monday.

Beverley tweaked his hamstring while running after a loose rebound in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game. He briefly returned but later admitted that it was smarter to "play it safe," to avoid turning a minor tweak into a serious injury. Fantasy owners should anticipate having Bev available while checking for confirmation on Monday. He finished Saturday with a season-high 20 points, a career-high six 3-pointers, five rebounds and two steals. He's been feeling it over his last several games, scoring in double figures in five straight while playing great defense.
Nov 22 - 11:36 PM

Elfrid Payton had his best game as a pro on Saturday against the Heat with nine points, three rebounds, four assists and five steals in 22 minutes.

He made 4-of-6 from the field, but did turn the ball over three times and only made one of his four free throw attempts. Payton was everywhere tonight and he showed great instincts in getting the passing lanes. He is also coming off a 16-point game on Friday, so this game is doubly impressive. His upside is still severely capped and the chances of him being a top-100 guy are very slim, but you can give him a look if you want.
Nov 22 - 11:33 PM

Brandan Wright hit 6-of-7 shots (as usual) and racked up 14 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in just 22 minutes on Saturday.

Wright is a beast right now and a very economical center in daily leagues. Despite coming off the bench and getting just 19.4 minutes per game, Wright has scored in double figures in seven straight games and came into this one averaging 12.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks over his last five. Those numbers are going up and he’s shooting it lights out this season, and hitting 31-of-39 shots over his last six games. If starter Tyson Chandler ever gets hurt, look out.
Nov 22 - 11:31 PM

Mo Williams continued his strong play as the Wolves' starting PG on Saturday, handing out 12 assists with 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting in 35 minutes.

The field goal percentage wasn't great, but Mo chipped in a 3-pointer and he's really found a groove since overtaking Zach LaVine for the starting job in Ricky Rubio's absence. He's averaging 13.3 points, 1.7 triples, 1.8 rebounds and 9.7 assists in the past three games. LaVine had just five points in 13 minutes off the bench and it looks like Williams will be a reliable fantasy PG until Rubio returns, which won't be until late December at the earliest.
Nov 22 - 11:29 PM

Ben McLemore set a new season-high on Saturday with 22 points, making 9-of-17 shots including four 3-pointers in 41 minutes of action vs. the Wolves.

The Kings blew a few big leads this week, but they took control of tonight's game in the second half and didn't let go. McLemore is shooting a solid 44.3 percent from the field with copious 3-pointers, but his inconsistency and lack of supporting stats takes a big bite out of his 8-cat/9-cat value.
Nov 22 - 11:27 PM

Nikola Vucevic went off for a career-high 33 points against the Heat on Saturday with 17 boards, one assist and one block in 34 minutes.

He cleaned the glass with 11 boards on the offensive end. The Magic went to him early and often as the focal point of their offense. Vucevic's post presence has really improved on both ends of the court and he just needs to add some blocks to be a fantasy monster. Obviously, his fantasy owners are not complaining.
Nov 22 - 11:27 PM

Anthony Bennett moved into the Wolves' starting lineup on Saturday, posting 10 points, six boards, two assists, one steal and two blocks at PF alongside Gorgui Dieng.

Bennett hit 5-of-11 shots and didn't turn the ball over in 30 minutes, which would likely have earned him another start on Wednesday if Thaddeus Young (personal) wasn't expected back in the lineup. Owners in 12-team leagues can leave Bennett on the waiver wire for now, but keep this performance in mind as the season progresses.
