Latest Headlines

J.R. Smith and Kenyon Martin are not practicing on Sunday due to illnesses.

It makes sense and J.R. Smith did not have much success battling through his 102-degree fever in Game 3 on Saturday. Game 4 isn't until Tuesday, so Smith should feel a lot better by then. On the other hand, his game hasn't been well in the playoffs, shooting a putrid 33.9 percent from the field. He'll look to rebound on Tuesday.

Dennis Schroder scored a career-high 33 points on 12-of-19 shooting in Friday's 114-110 win over the Bucks.

Maybe he got tired of all the talk about his backup, Malcolm Delaney. Schroder has been a beast lately, scoring 15+ points in seven straight games and shooting above 50 percent in all but one of them. He played a season-high 40 minutes in the win and even logged some minutes next to Delaney with Kent Bazemore (knee) on the shelf. His slow start to the season is behind him and he will try to help the Hawks win their third straight game on Tuesday vs. Orlando.

LeBron James scored 27 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

He passed Elvin Hayes for ninth on the NBA's all-time scoring list. James is also going to pass Moses Malone in about another week and needs just 95 points to do so. On the lighter side, it was 80's night at The Q and the Cavs had a funny team video tonight (in link below).

Jabari Parker scored 27 points with four rebounds, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes in a 114-110 loss to the Hawks on Friday.

"[Jabari] is a beast right now," Giannis Antetokounmpo said before the game. Parker carried the load tonight with Giannis in foul trouble and shot 11-of-24 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line. This was his third game in a row with at least one triple and he's scored 23+ points in that span as well. He's now returning fifth-round value in standard leagues and still has room to grow.

Marcus Morris caught an Adreian Payne elbow to his face and went to the locker room in the fourth quarter on Friday.

Morris was on the floor face down for about two minutes. He had a towel over his nose and went to the locker room without assistance, but he was walking back slowly. There's a good chance Morris broke his nose and could miss time. If he's out, Jon Leuer would get a bump and perhaps Stanley Johnson gets in the mix. Morris finished with 15 points, seven boards, one dime and three 3-pointers.
Dec 9 - 10:18 PM

George Hill (left toe) will not play on Saturday vs. the Kings.

This will be his sixth game in a row on the shelf after he missed eight games in a row earlier this season with a thumb issue. Hill was playing the best ball of his life this season, so his owners just need to hang in there. Shelvin Mack is worth streaming while Hill is out, but Dante Exum still belongs on the wire.
Dec 9 - 10:11 PM

Gordon Hayward (finger) is probable for Saturday's game vs. the Kings.

He missed Thursday's game vs. the Warriors, but you have to wonder if the Jazz simply wanted to rest him against arguably the top team in the league right now. Rodney Hood (hamstring) is questionable and George Hill (toe) is out, so Hayward is going to be a strong play in all formats Saturday.
Dec 9 - 10:07 PM

Derrick Rose (back) said he expects to play on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

Rose is sitting out against the Kings on Friday for the second straight game, meaning Brandon Jennings will likely head back to the bench on Sunday. Rose is traveling with the team and is day-to-day, so this isn't a surprise. He's averaging 16.7 points, 4.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds on 45.0 percent shooting this season.
Dec 9 - 9:35 PM

Bismack Biyombo is dealing with a sore left shoulder and will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

The cause for the injury isn't 100 percent clear, but he looked to have tweaked his left shoulder on a block attempt in the second half. With Nikola Vucevic (back) also getting hurt, the Magic will really need Biyombo on Saturday. If both are out, we'll see a lot of Serge Ibaka, Jeff Green and small-ball lineups. Stephen Zimmerman would also likely be activated. Biyombo finished Friday's game with nine points, three rebounds and two turnovers in 16 minutes.
Dec 9 - 9:13 PM

Nikola Vucevic suffered a lower back injury in the second half on Friday and will be re-evaluated in Orlando on Saturday.

He went for a loose ball and Roy Hibbert undercut him. Vucevic landed on his right hip and was in pain on the bench for at least one minute. He's had back problems before, so hopefully this didn't tweak an older injury. The Magic do play on Saturday, so they may have to make some adjustments with more Jeff Green and a lot of small-ball combos. Vooch finished with seven points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 23 minutes.
Dec 9 - 9:10 PM

Brandon Ingram will start on Friday vs. the Suns, sending Marcelo Huertas back to the bench.

The rookie will be the starting SG next to Jordan Clarkson. Ingram has played 33 or more minutes in four out of his last five games, but he's going to see big minutes regardless of whether or not he starts moving forward.
Dec 9 - 8:51 PM

Matt Barnes (rest) will not play Friday night against the Knicks.

He is reportedly close to being arrested and charged with assaulting a woman, according to the NY Daily News. With Barnes out tonight, Omri Casspi should benefit the most while Arron Afflalo could get back in the rotation tonight.
