Latest Headlines

Ricky Rubio scored a career-high 24 points to lead the Wolves to a road win on Saturday, making 8-of-18 FGs and 7-of-7 FTs with five rebounds, 10 assists and five steals.

Talk about a bounce-back performance -- Rubio came in shooting 9.7 percent from the field in the Wolves' past three games (3-of-31). His legs are tired and he's playing through a sore left shoulder, but he was inspirational tonight against a Suns team which is giving up 104.8 points per game in April. Let's hope he closes the season strong vs. the Jazz on Monday and the Spurs on Wednesday.

Derrick Rose (illness) said barring any setbacks, he intends to play Monday vs. the Raptors.

"I'm feeling a lot better. Getting my energy back. Just fatigued the last couple of days," said Rose. Considering he's just dealing with an illness, and he's currently on the mend, a "setback" isn't something that's very likely. His return would send Kirk Hinrich back to the bench, and Aaron Brooks would go back to being a negligible option in most leagues. Stay tuned.

James Harden (strained left hamstring) is probable to play Monday vs. Portland.

Harden injured his hamstring during Saturday's game vs. Atlanta, but played through the strain and put up 18 points, six rebounds, and a season-high 14 assists over 39 minutes of action so we'd expect him to give it a go on Monday. Stay tuned.
Dec 21 - 3:17 PM

Mike Miller (ankle) will play Sunday vs. Memphis.

Miller was able to put up 21 points on 7-of-8 shooting during his last outing, but going up against a tough Memphis squad, it's unlikely he'll be able to repeat that production. Miller is a risky option in daily leagues.
Dec 21 - 3:11 PM

Tony Allen (eye) will not play Sunday vs. the Cavs.

Allen's minutes will be distributed to guys like Vince Carter, Quincy Pondexter, and Tayshaun Prince, with Carter offering the most upside out of the group. Prince and Pondexter shouldn't be considered an option in most leagues.
Dec 21 - 3:06 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Cavs, and is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

"Taking a couple of nights off isn't the worst thing in the world," said head coach David Joerger. "His knee is pretty swollen." The good news here is that an MRI on Randolph's knee came back clean, so he shouldn't be looking at a prolonged absence. Expect Jon Leuer and Kosta Koufos to see some extended minutes with Randolph unavailable, and the guy who starts will make for the better play in daily leagues. Stay tuned for an update on the Grizzlies starting lineup.
Dec 21 - 3:00 PM

James Johnson will enter the starting lineup in place of Landry Fields (concussion) for Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

James Johnson will spend most of the game defending Carmelo Anthony, and he makes for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Greivis Vasquez will also likely see extended minutes off the bench, and he has a favorable matchup today vs. the Knicks.
Dec 21 - 2:57 PM

Dwight Howard (right shoulder strain) is being listed as probable for Monday's game vs. Portland.

Dwight was able to fight through the strain and put up a double-double during his last outing, so we'd expect him to give it a go again on Monday. Still, owners will want to check back for an official update on his status closer to Monday's tip, and if he sits, Tarik Black would slide back into the starting lineup.
Dec 21 - 2:53 PM

Derek Fisher was not optimistic when asked about J.R. Smith (heel), and speculated that he could be out another week in order to rest his heel.

For as long as Smith is sidelined, Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to soak up all his minutes, and he should be owned in most leagues. Over the past two weeks, Hardaway Jr. is averaging 15.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.8 three-pointers per game over 29 minutes of action and he has almost zero competition for minutes. Go grab him if he's still available.
Dec 21 - 2:18 PM

Taj Gibson (ankle) was a full participant at practice on Sunday, and there is a good chance he plays on Monday.

Gibson has had some tough luck with injuries this season but he is getting very close to a return. His status will likely be determined after shootaround on Monday and his owners will have to check back for official confirmation. If Gibson can't go, Nikola Mirotic will continue to see big minutes off of the bench and will be worth a look in most leagues.
Dec 21 - 1:55 PM

Derrick Rose (illness) practiced partially on Sunday, and head coach Tom Thibodeau is hopeful he'll be able to play for Monday's game vs. Toronto.

The Bulls are always going to be cautious with Rose, but at least he has a shot to play in this one. We should have further updates after shootaround on Monday, and we will provide those as needed. Expect Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks to pick up the slack if Rose can't go.
Dec 21 - 1:52 PM

Danilo Gallinari was diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his right knee, and the tentative timetable is three weeks.

This is a huge blow both Gallinari and the Nuggets, as he was finally showing signs of improvement before this setback. He will need surgery, and he is expected to miss at least three weeks. However, we wouldn't be surprised if he was held out for even longer, and it looks like Wilson Chandler will have no competition for playing time in the near future.
