Latest Headlines

Moe Harkless (ankle) will be active to face the Pacers on Saturday.

All signs are pointing to him being in the starting lineup. Coach Terry Stotts added he's not looking to change the starting lineup, so that's something to keep in mind. Evan Turner and Allen Crabbe lose some of their luster as punt plays in DFS. Harkless is a hold in almost all leagues.

J.R. Smith will start with Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson against the Hornets on Saturday.

Smith is back after a couple games off from his knee soreness. He was really struggling before the injury, so hopefully the time off has helped him. He's a borderline add in standard leagues.
Dec 10 - 5:51 PM

Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) will start against the Nuggets on Saturday.

Well, the Magic have changed their tune. Biyombo is going to play with some soreness and with a harness, so he's not 100 percent. If he's able to avoid injury, he should be busy. This takes Stephen Zimmerman off the board in DFS and also hurts guys like Serge Ibaka, Jeff Green and Aaron Gordon slightly.
Dec 10 - 5:47 PM

Jeff Green (ankle) is available to play vs. Denver on Saturday.

His ankle tweak didn't look too bad, so he may not be limited. Green should actually play a lot tonight, so he's on the board as a DFS punt. He doesn't have much value in standard leagues.
Dec 10 - 5:45 PM

Nikola Vucevic (back) and Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) are out against the Nuggets on Saturday.

Well, coach Frank Vogel may actually have to go small. The Magic have rolled with a three-man big rotation, but now he's left with just Serge Ibaka -- he should play a too. Expect to see a lot of Aaron Gordon at the four, which should open up minutes for Jeff Green and the bench wings. Stephen Zimmerman should also get some burn as a dart throw tonight.
Dec 10 - 5:42 PM

Wilson Chandler (right hip soreness) will not play against the Magic on Saturday.

This is the same hip that kept him out all of last season and needed surgery, so this isn't a minor thing. That said, it's just soreness, so don't panic on him. Chandler has played way too many minutes because he's been the best and most consistent player. With Chandler out of the lineup, Kenneth Faried may be back in the mix while Darrell Arthur and Juancho Hernagomez get boosts, as well. Expect bigger usage rates for Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray in the second unit.
Dec 10 - 4:43 PM

Derrick Rose went through a full practice on Saturday.

More importantly, coach Jeff Hornacek said Rose looked good out there. Rose said he expects to play on Sunday against the Lakers, so this news coincides with that timetable. Rose would likely start and sounds like he could play 30 minutes. Brandon Jennings would move to the bench and be looking at minutes in the mid-20s.

The Magic recalled Stephen Zimmerman on Saturday.

That is not a good sign for Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) and Nikola Vucevic (back) for tonight. Zimmerman actually blew up in the D-League on Friday with 20 points, 12 boards and two blocks. He's been awesome all year at Erie with averages of 21.8 points, 15.8 boards, 1.8 steals and 1.5 block -- yes, that's nice. He may get in the rotation and was a block machine in Summer League, but it would take a little slice of crazy to roll him out there for DFS. That would change if Vogel gets wild and starts him.
Dec 10 - 4:25 PM

Updating a previous item, D'Angelo Russell (knee) has a chance to play against the Knicks on Sunday.

He was taking some contact in his 3-on-3 on Saturday and went through a full practice, so that may have met coach Luke Walton's requirements to suit up. A big factor will be how his body responded to today's workload. Russell has said he's healthy and is already past his original prognosis. He'll likely be a game-time call. If he's out, Jordan Clarkson would go back to the bench while Lou Williams may actually slow down a bit.
Dec 10 - 4:02 PM

Isaiah Thomas (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Oklahoma City.

He did not even travel for the road game. Thomas has said he wants to play on Wednesday, but the Celtics are really going to be careful for him. Coach Brad Stevens said on Friday he really wants to make sure he's over his injury and doesn't want it to linger. With Thomas out, Marcus Smart gets the start while Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown get some extra playing time. Smart is worth a pickup in most leagues despite his shooting woes.
Dec 10 - 2:38 PM

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play against the Pistons on Sunday.

This will be the eighth straight game Bayless has missed. Sergio Rodriguez will start once again. S-Rod has played well in place of Bayless this season. Rodriguez is averaging 9.1 points, 6.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 28.0 minutes in the 22 games he has started this season.
