Latest Headlines

Roy Hibbert dominated Game 3 with a playoff career-high 24 points and 12 boards, including eight offensive, as the Pacers took a 2-1 series lead vs. the Knicks.

Hibbert thought the Pacers were "timid" in Game 2 and he set the tone tonight with confident, aggressive play at both ends of the court. He has learned to avoid silly foul trouble, his post game has vastly improved, and he's easily outplaying reigning DPOY Tyson Chandler in the second round, averaging 14.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks in three games vs. the Knicks. Indiana will look to take a commanding lead with a Game 4 win on Tuesday.

The Nuggets will start Jameer Nelson, Will Barton, Danilo Gallinari, Darrell Arthur and Jusuf Nurkic against the Wizards on Thursday.

Barton and Nurkic have been really bad, especially on the defensive side of things. Expect coach Mike Malone to keep Nurkic on a very short leash tonight. If he gives up 3-pointers on 1-5 or 2-5 pick-and-roll plays, it might be it for him tonight. Nikola Jokic should still get most of the minutes and is trending up big time.

E'Twaun Moore (toe) will not play on Thursday against the 76ers.

That's be his second straight DNP. With Moore out, Buddy Hield should get more run at shooting guard while Langston Galloway and Tim Frazier could run some two-guard combos. Plus, this should help Solomon Hill pick up extra run at the three to help offset the loss of wing depth.
Dec 8 - 6:30 PM

Jrue Holiday (toe) will not play against the 76ers on Thursday.

No revenge game for Jrue against his former team. Holiday's turf toe injury can linger, so the Pelicans will play it safe. His injury history also may have factored into this because compensating could lead to another injury. With Jrue out, Tim Frazier should start while Langston Galloway gets additional run at the point. Buddy Hield should pick up extra minutes, as well.
Dec 8 - 6:30 PM

Darrell Arthur will start and Kenneth Faried will move to the bench against the Wizards on Thursday.

This move was fully expected after coach Mike Malone benched Faried to start the second half on Wednesday. Malone likes Arthur for his defense, so that will be a big reason why he's in the mix. Arthur is a bit of a hit-or-miss option, but he could have a good game in a solid matchup. He has value in 16-team leagues.
Dec 8 - 6:25 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (right ankle sprain) will not play against the Wizards on Thursday night.

Wow. Mudiay did not appear to be hurt on Wednesday and was benched after just 18 minutes of action. This is one of those head-scratching injuries and comes just after coach Mike Malone said a lineup change could be coming. He also wasn't on the injury report this morning. Mudiay is a drop candidate in nine-category leagues. With him out, Jameer Nelson gets a massive boost while Jamal Murray should play some point guard minutes.
Dec 8 - 5:46 PM

DeMarre Carroll will play against the Wolves on Thursday and will rest against the Celtics on Friday.

The Raptors are still being careful with Carroll, but coach Dwane Casey said the back-to-back limit will drop "hopefully soon." His minutes have been trending up with 27.1 minutes per game in his last eight and he's also made 50.0 percent from the field in that span. Carroll is worth owning in standard leagues right now.
Dec 8 - 5:28 PM

Isaiah Thomas (groin) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Raptors.

Coach Brad Stevens called Thomas' groin strain "unpredictable" on Wednesday and Thomas even had a PRP injection, so seeing Thomas ruled out a day ahead of Friday's game makes sense. Marcus Smart was terrific in his start on Wednesday with 13 points while Terry Rozier turned in arguably his best game with 16 points. Jaylen Brown also saw an uptick in playing time sans Thomas.
Dec 8 - 4:33 PM

Marc Gasol (right groin) is questionable for Thursday against the Blazers.

This is a new injury for Gasol. He played a whopping 80 minutes combined on Monday and Tuesday, which is by far the most he's played in a back-to-back set. Gasol did play down the stretch on Tuesday night and didn't appear to be hurt. That said, the Grizzlies could choose to be careful with their best player even though they're not on a back-to-back set tonight. If he's out, Zach Randolph and Jarell Martin figure to pick up extra run. JaMychal Green's upside also goes up here.
Dec 8 - 4:12 PM

Vince Carter (hip) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday night.

He was listed as questionable on the injury report on Wednesday, but Carter will miss his sixth straight game. Since he's been out, it's been Troy Williams, Troy Daniels and Tony Allen picking up most of the wing minutes. Daniels will have the greatest upside with his red-hot scoring numbers. The Grizzlies aren't on a back-to-back, so Allen could get decent run tonight.
Dec 8 - 3:15 PM

Shaun Livingston (rest) will not play against the Jazz on Thursday night.

The Warriors haven't announced any other players sitting tonight, so perhaps everyone else will be a go. Livingston has played 17.3 minutes per game on the season as the backup point guard behind Stephen Curry. Those minutes should be going to Ian Clark and Patrick McCaw, so both of those guys could be a factor tonight in a possible blowout.
Dec 8 - 3:03 PM

Moe Harkless (left ankle sprain) is questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Thursday night.

He may have suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter on Wednesday and didn't play in the final 31 seconds. Harkless has played almost all small forward lately and has seen a nice scoring bump with double-digit points for 11 straight games. If he can't go, it should be Allen Crabbe moving into the starting lineup while Evan Turner would also see a bump in minutes.
