Latest Headlines

Tim Duncan shot 12-of-16 for 26 points in Friday's blowout 120-89 win over the Lakers to take a 3-0 lead, while adding nine boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.

Tony Parker also turned in a nice outing with 20 points, three boards and seven assists in just 27 minutes. The Spurs won the rebounding battle 49-35 as well as producing more 19 fastbreak points to LA's six. San Antonio also shot 61.2 percent from the field and they really got anything they wanted throughout the game. They're a good bet to close out this series on Sunday at Staples Center.

Enes Kanter (thigh contusion) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

Feb 27 - 9:08 PM

Taj Gibson went to the locker room on Friday with an ankle sprain and will not return.

He can't seem to shake these ankle sprains. Gibson was all set for a big night tonight and hopefully will return to action soon. If he doesn't it'll be Nikola Mirotic logging major playing time. Considering Miro's upside, he is well worth a speculative add in most leagues.
Feb 27 - 8:40 PM

Carl Landry will start next to Jason Thompson on Friday night against the Spurs.

In the George Karl era, these two guys have logged a grand total of four minutes next to each other, but they were great with an offensive rating of 154.2 in those four minutes. Landry is capable of putting up numbers and he might be worth a look in deep leagues. He's still not someone to trust on a 14-game night, obviously.
Feb 27 - 8:26 PM

J.J. Hickson will start Friday vs. the Jazz.

While Kenneth Faired is healthy and available to play, head coach Brian Shaw has elected to go with Hickson as the starter. This is a strange move, and it seems Faried and Shaw could use some counseling, but it is what it is. Hickson is averaging 7.6 points and 6.8 rebounds through five games with the starting unit, and he'll have a tough matchup tonight, making him a risky play in most leagues.
Feb 27 - 7:30 PM

Joffrey Lauvergne will start against the Jazz on Friday night.

He'll join Ty Lawson, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari and J.J. Hickson. Lauvergne logged some big minutes on Wednesday and the Nuggets look like they'll be giving him big run. He's not a tremendous player for fantasy because he doesn't block a ton of shots, but he's certainly worth a look for anyone needing a big man.
Feb 27 - 7:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Wilson Chandler will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Jazz.

Gary Harris is going to stick with the starting unit for this one, and this is a very interesting move for head coach Brian Shaw. The Nuggets don't have a lot of healthy bodies, so Chandler should still be able to get his minutes, but he'll be a bit more of a risky play coming off the bench.
Feb 27 - 7:24 PM

C.J. Miles (foot) will remain in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Cavs.

Miles is averaging 13.7 points and 1.8 three-pointers per game on 38.1 percent shooting from the field this season. He basically scores inefficiently, limiting his value to deeper leagues.
Feb 27 - 7:14 PM

Patrick Patterson will start over Amir Johnson on Friday.

It makes a lot of sense on offense to help space the floor for basically every other starter. Patterson's role shouldn't change too much and we're basically just going to see his minutes come next to different guys. Still, he has a nice upside and is worth a look in standard leagues in case he gets an extra 5-8 minutes tonight.
Feb 27 - 7:12 PM

Updating a previous report, James Harden (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

Head coach Kevin McHale said that he has no plan to limit Harden's minutes, but he will keep an eye on his ankle and make adjustments if he’s in any noticeable pain. Harden has been an absolute beast this season, leading the league in scoring with 27.2 points per game while chipping in 5.8 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.9 steals, and 2.7 three-pointers. Get him active for tonight's favorable matchup against the Nets.
Feb 27 - 7:08 PM

Wilson Chandler (groin) is a go for Friday's game vs. Utah.

Chandler will likely return to the starting lineup, which will send Gary Harris back to the bench, and take away minutes from Will Barton. The Nuggets are banged up right now with Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (calf) out, so Wilson could be forced into heavy minutes playing both forward spots.
Feb 27 - 6:50 PM

Kenneth Faried (thumb) will play against the Jazz on Friday and come off the bench.

He missed Wednesday and there's no word on how many minutes he'll play. Faried was only playing minutes in the low 20s leading up to the injury, but he should have a chance for more with Darrell Arthur (knee) out. He's still not a must-start player tonight, especially with Rudy Gobert protecting the rim.
