Updating a previous item, Byron Scott has been fired as Cavs head coach, source told the Akron Beacon-Journal.

The writing was on the wall. Once the news is confirmed, Scott will officially end his tenure in Cleveland with a record of 64-166 over three seasons. You can bet the Cavs will be sure that whoever the next head coach is has Kyrie Irving's stamp of approval.

P.J. Tucker will start for Ryan Anderson (illness) on Wednesday against the Nuggets.

He could see some decent minutes because Eric Gordon (calf) is also out for this game. Luc Mbah a Moute figures to get minutes at the forward spots and the Rockets could run a fairly tighter rotation. Tucker could be a sneaky DFS punt or a stream, but this is a 14-game night.

Eric Gordon (sore calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) are out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

The good news on this is that it's just being called soreness for Gordon. Plus, the Rockets don't play again until Saturday, so he's basically getting a week off from game action. With him out, Bobby Brown or even Troy Williams could be added to the rotation, or the Rockets could add more minutes to their usual rotation. P.J. Tucker is going to start tonight.
Nov 22 - 6:43 PM

Wilson Chandler (sore back) will be available to play Wednesday vs. Houston.

Chandler was a full participant during Tuesday's practice and has only missed one game with this minor back issue, so he'll likely return to the starting five tonight, which will shift either Will Barton or Kenneth Faried back to the second unit. Barton should be fine regardless of how he enters the game because he's due for an uptick in usage sans Paul Millsap (wrist), but Faried would be far less effective as a reserve. Stay tuned.
Nov 22 - 6:36 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) will play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

This is probably the least surprising development of the day. Durant will likely be getting his share of cupcake-based messages from the crowd, but he should be fairly close to 100 percent after missing Sunday night. Get him in your lineup for a revenge game and consider him in DFS.

Eric Gordon (calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) are doubtful to play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

This is a new injury for Gordon and he may have suffered it on Saturday during a blowout win against the Grizzlies. Gordon has really struggled to stay healthy in his pre-Rockets days, so hopefully this isn't the start of something that lingers. With him out, P.J. Tucker figures to step up the most while Bobby Brown could get in the rotation. Chris Paul is also expected to play 28 minutes.
Nov 22 - 6:20 PM

Norman Powell (hip) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Powell has spent the past four games on the sidelines, so the Raptors may want to take it easy on him and bring him off the bench, but it'll be interesting to see how long OG Anunoby can hold Powell out of the starting lineup. C.J. Miles will also play less with Powell back in the rotation.
Nov 22 - 6:16 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Tyler Zeller will start against the Cavs on Wednesday.

It'll be Zeller's first start this season, but he should be close to his 16.8 minutes per game in his eight active outings this season. Behind Zeller, Jarrett Allen is likely going to be in the rotation unless the Nets want to get another look at Timofey Mozgov. Allen's upside in blocks makes him the more interesting pickup.

Trevor Booker (ankle) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He did not practice on Tuesday, but he did go through some work at shootaround on Wednesday. The Nets are likely going to be very careful with Booker throughout the year, so he may start to trend down after the break. With him out tonight, Tyler Zeller will get the start while Jarrett Allen should be in the rotation. Keep an eye on Allen in deeper leagues.

Aron Baynes will start and Marcus Morris (knee) is a game-time call to face the Heat on Wednesday.

The Celtics will go big in this matchup and Baynes will likely match up against Hassan Whiteside. Baynes should still see around 20 minutes while Daniel Theis and Semi Ojeleye could play more if Morris is out. There isn't much fantasy value changing hands here.
Nov 22 - 6:06 PM

John Collins will start at power forward against the Clippers on Wednesday.

The Hawks will go big with Dewayne Dedmon and Collins against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. The Collins-Dedmon frontcourt has only been used for 35 minutes this season, and Collins' advanced numbers for usage and rebounding are slightly down. Still, this is big news after the Hawks usually keep him at the center spot. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 22 - 6:01 PM

Damian Lillard (ankle) said he will play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

After he rolled his ankle on Monday, Lillard said he was going to get treatment and keep his ankle elevated on Monday night. He was not on the injury report coming into this game and it's not a surprise Dame is out there as one of the most durable players in the NBA. Fire him up, but he may have a tough matchup against the size on the 76ers.
