A source tells the Akron Beacon Journal that the Cavs and coach Mike Brown have a handshake agreement on a five-year contract in place.

Yes, this is the same Mike Brown that was fired by the Cavs in May of 2010 after five seasons at the helm. He'll now return to Cleveland under much different circumstances. LeBron James is gone and the Cavs are in the midst of a rebuilding project that has been thwarted by injuries over the last few seasons. He does have an intriguing core to work with in superstar Kyrie Irving, a rehabbing Anderson Varejao, a 21-year-old scorer in Dion Waiters and substantial cap space. The only other coach the Cavs reached out to was Phil Jackson, who predictably said he wasn't interested. Brown will reportedly receive a staggering $20 million-plus in the deal.

Jaokim Noah (ankle) will play Sunday vs. the Kings.

With Noah active, Kyle O'Quinn's minutes will likely return to the teens, and Willy Hernangomez's value will also take a decent sized hit. Noah is averaging just 4.0 points, 8.1 boards and 3.1 assists per game on the year, so he's not a great option in standard leagues.
Dec 4 - 5:54 PM

Courtney Lee (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Kings.

Justin Holiday will likely be drawing the start tonight, and he's someone to consider in DFS after putting up 13 points, seven boards, three steals, one block and two triples over 31 minutes in a spot-start on Friday night. For now, we'll be considering Lee questionable for Tuesday's game in Miami.
Dec 4 - 5:53 PM

Reggie Jackson (knee, thumb) will start in his regular-season debut Sunday vs. the Magic, sending Ish Smith back to the bench.

Jackson won't play much more than 20 minutes tonight, so he's not a great DFS option, but he obviously should be activated in all season-long settings. Smith was just barely clinging to late-round value on the year as Detroit's starter, and his value is going to take a pretty massive hit once Jackson is fully up to speed, so owners may want to start perusing the waiver wire for his replacement. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond will join Jackson in the starting five.
Dec 4 - 5:47 PM

E'Twaun Moore will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Thunder, sending Tim Frazier to the bench.

Moore has been much better as a starter this season, owning averages of 11.4 points, 3.0 assists, 1.1 triples, 0.9 steals and 1.3 turnovers per game on 45.7 percent shooting, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do tonight with a tough matchup against OKC. Frazier will have more opportunity to run the offense with the second unit, so this might not be the worst thing for his value.
Dec 4 - 5:41 PM

Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) is probable to play Monday vs. the Bulls.

He's been out since Nov. 8, so he'll likely be eased back into things as his conditioning likely isn't where it needs to be. Aminu's return should push Ed Davis back to the bench and Meyers Leonard's minutes will become even more inconsistent. Aminu was hitting just 27.9 percent of his shots prior to going down with meager averages of 6.4 points, 6.7 boards, 1.1 treys and 1.4 steals per game, so he's only worth a speculative add in deep points leagues at the moment.
Dec 4 - 4:21 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Wizards.

Monday will be Lin's 15th consecutive game on the sidelines, and the Nets' haven't given any indication that he's getting close to a return. Isaiah Whitehead will continue to start in his absence, but Sean Kilpatrick remains the primary beneficiary. Lin is worth holding onto in most leagues.
Dec 4 - 3:54 PM

Seth Curry (right knee sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets.

Curry has spent the past two games on the sidelines, and his minutes have been divvied up between Devin Harris and Jonathan Gibson, with Deron Williams logging around 30 minutes as a starter. It'll be more of the same if he can't give it a go Monday night.
Dec 4 - 3:12 PM

Dirk Nowtizki (Achilles) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Hornets.

It'll be Dirk's fifth straight game on the sidelines, and the only recent update we've had on Nowitzki from Rick Carlisle is that he'll be out "a while." For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Dorian Finney-Smith will continue to start in his absence, with Harrison Barnes acting as the No. 1 option on offense.
Dec 4 - 3:09 PM

Larry Nance (right knee contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Jazz.

Nance missed Saturday's showdown in Memphis, which resulted in Julius Randle, Luol Deng and Brandon Ingram logging heavy minutes, and it'll be more of the same if Nance can't give it a go Monday night.
Dec 4 - 2:43 PM

Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) has been ruled out for Monday’s game against the Jazz.

With Calderon, Nick Young (Achilles), D’Angelo Russell (knee) all set to spend Monday night on the sidelines, the Lakers could go with a starting backcourt of Jordan Clarkson and Marcelo Huertas, with Clarkson being the preferable fantasy target. Lou Williams, who is coming off a 40-point game, will also see some increased opportunity on Monday night, as would Brandon Ingram.
Dec 4 - 2:39 PM

Mike D'Antoni said that Trevor Ariza (back) was feeling better, and the Rockets are listing him as day-to-day.

Ariza exited Friday's game during the closing minutes with back spasms and did not return, but Houston was up by 20 when Ariza tapped out. He did sit out Sunday's practice, and while he did say he was feeling better, he acknowledged that he might not play Monday vs. Boston. If he’s out, Corey Brewer and K.J. McDaniels would see a boost in value.
