Luol Deng (hip) is in the starting lineup to face the Knicks on Thursday.

He is expected to be on a minutes limit, which isn't saying all that much since he does lead the league in minutes per game. He's not a must-start for owners that are watching their game count, but he should be able to approach scoring in the teens. Jimmy Butler is starting at power forward should still see his share of playing time as the best defense option on Carmelo Anthony.

Kemba Walker went down on Wednesday after bruising his thigh and being elbowed in the face, but he is available to return.

Walker was down for a while and looked a bit 'woozy' as he made his way to the Hornets' bench, but it sounds like he avoided any serious injuries. With Gary Neal (shoulder) already unavailable, Walker's absence would have left Charlotte heavily reliant upon Brian Roberts.

JaVale McGee (leg) will not play on Wednesday night.

He doesn't have a timetable to return, but the Nuggets have him listed as day-to-day. McGee doesn't have a fracture, but the fact that the Nuggets are being so careful doesn't bode well for his outlook on the season. He's a tough player to own in almost any league. Timofey Mozgov and Jusuf Nurkic should play more.
Nov 26 - 7:56 PM

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek doesn't expect Isaiah Thomas (ankle) to play on Wednesday.

"I think he's out," Hornacek said, when questioned before the game. If Thomas does sit out there will be more minutes available for Goran Dragic, Eric Bledsoe and Gerald Green, which is welcome news for their fantasy owners given the nightly tug-of-war for playing time in the Suns' backcourt.
Nov 26 - 7:22 PM

Devin Harris will start at point guard against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He and J.J. Barea are likely going to split the point guard minutes right down the middle, but Harris' steals and treys do make him a slightly more attractive option. Barea is certainly a capable option as well. Jameer Nelson isn't expected to miss much time, so Harris doesn't gain too much value.
Nov 26 - 7:21 PM

Thaddeus Young is active against the Bucks on Wednesday.

The team is honoring his mother with pink shoelaces, which is pretty cool. Young will get a decent matchup tonight and we'd love to see him have a huge game. He's a strong play tonight and should be in most lineups.
Nov 26 - 6:51 PM

Mo Williams (illness) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He's missed practice the past two days and has been sick since Sunday, so this is a surprise. Williams is dealing with strep throat and pink eye, which shouldn't keep him out much longer. Zach LaVine is going to get all the minutes he can handle. The Wolves might need Corey Brewer and Andrew Wiggins to handle the ball more, too.
Nov 26 - 6:46 PM

Andrew Bogut is in the starting lineup against the Magic on Wednesday.

Coach Steve Kerr did say he wants to take it easy on his starting unit tonight, so Bogut owners should temper expectations. Marreese Speights should still be a decent play, but not considering there are so many games in the NBA tonight.
Nov 26 - 6:40 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play on Wednesday.

It's the time of year when "flu-like symptoms" make their rounds throughout the NBA, and Sefolosha is the latest victim. He's playing a small role off the Hawks' bench with Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll both healthy, so his absence shouldn't cause any problems for fantasy owners.
Nov 26 - 6:30 PM

Kevin McHale indicated that he doesn't expect Dwight Howard (knee) to play Friday.

Howard has not been ruled out but his status is bleak at the moment, as he's still recovering from a strained knee that prompted him to get platelet-rich plasma injections last week. McHale will likely want to see Dwight make it through a practice before playing him, so fantasy owners should have advance warning once he's ready to get back on the court. Tarik Black is a poor fantasy option as a fill-in center, and more minutes will be available for Donatas Motiejunas and Kostas Papanikolaou.
Nov 26 - 6:26 PM

Bradley Beal will move into the Wizards' starting lineup on Wednesday, moving Garrett Temple to the bench.

Beal has come off the bench in all four of his games this season, averaging 15.8 points on 45.5 percent shooting, 1.5 threes, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals. It was only a matter of time before he displaced Temple and he should already be locked into all active fantasy lineups.
Nov 26 - 6:13 PM

Nerlens Noel is starting next to Michael Carter-Williams, Tony Wroten, Luc Mbah a Moute and Henry Sims against the Nets on Wednesday.

He came off the bench on Monday and he'll get to guard Kevin Garnett tonight. Noel is getting better with his shot selection, but he has really been beat up on the defensive side. His fantasy owners have seen a bump in output in his past two, so he is an option even on a busy night.
