The Raptors may be "leaning toward" replacing GM Bryan Colangelo, according to the National Post.

Previous reports suggested that Colangelo's job was safe, so this complicates the picture. The decision rests with Tim Leiweke, the new CEO of Maple League Sports & Entertainment. Leiweke already made an overture to Phil Jackson, but regardless of Colangelo's fate it's considered unlikely that the Zen Master will join the Raptors as more than an advisor. The suspense won't last much longer, as a decision on Colangelo is "imminent" and could be announced as soon as Monday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

Giannis sprained his ankle during the second overtime of Wednesday's triple OT win over the Nets, but managed to play through it. If The Greek Freak is unable to go, Khris Middleton and O.J. Mayo would be the primary beneficiaries of his absence, with Mayo offering the most upside. Stay tuned for an official update on Giannis' status as we draw closer to Friday's tip.

Rajon Rondo said his ankle was "sore" after rolling it Wednesday night, but he's expected to be fine.

This seems like a very minor thing, and Rondo has been known to play through nicks and bruises. We'll be monitoring Rondo's status leading up to Friday's tip, but it would be quite shocking if he were sidelined for that one. Rondo is currently averaging 10.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, and a league-leading 11.8 assists on the year. So far, the only detriments to his value are his horrid free throw shooting (40 percent), and high turnover rate (4.0 turnovers a game). But as a nightly triple-double threat, owners don't have much to complain about.

DeMarre Carroll (groin) went through a full practice on Thursday, and is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

Carroll also said he will play vs. Detroit, so all signs are pointing towards a Friday return. Thabo Sefolosha will head back to the bench upon Carroll's return, and he'll go back to being irrelevant in standard leagues. Stay tuned for an official update on Carroll's status as we draw closer to Friday's tip.
Nov 20 - 4:47 PM

Jason Thompson (quad) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. Chicago.

Thompson is averaging just 4.3 points and 6.3 rebounds as a starter for the Kings, and he's faced with a very difficult matchup today against an imposing Chicago frontcourt. So whether he plays tonight should be of little concern to owners in standard leagues. However, if Thompson does sit this one out Carl Landry would be in line for some increased minutes, but given Sacramento's opponent, neither player makes for a very attractive option.
Nov 20 - 4:18 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (hip) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

Cousins' injury seems very minor, and he was able to put up 24 points and 17 rebounds during his last outing, despite tweaking his left hip flexor during Tuesday's warmups. Stay tuned for an official update as we draw closer to Thursday's tip, but things are looking positive for Sacramento's primary offensive weapon.
Nov 20 - 4:12 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

Gay hasn't missed a game yet with his Achilles tendinitis, so we're going to say he's very likely to play in this one. Still, owners will want to check back for an official update as we draw closer to Thursday's tip. If Gay is unable to go, Omri Casspi would likely pick up a majority of his minutes at small forward. Stay tuned.
Nov 20 - 4:07 PM

Nicolas Batum (knee) was spotted doing shooting drills after Thursday's practice, and was not wearing a brace on his injured right knee.

Batum is targeting a return for Friday's game vs. the Bulls, and all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go. Stay tuned for an official update on his status as we draw closer to Friday's tip. When Batum returns, Allen Crabbe will head back to the bench.
Nov 20 - 3:52 PM

Dwight Howard (knee) did not practice on Thursday, and is being listed as day-to-day.

While Howard is out Tarik Black and Donatas Motiejunas will get all the minutes they can handle, with Kostas Papanikolaou seeing some extended run off the bench. None of those guys make for a great pickup in standard leagues, but they could be nice low-budget options in FanDuel if Howard and Terrence Jones are unable to go on Saturday. Stay tuned.
Nov 20 - 3:42 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) said that his family is coming for Christmas, and he hopes they will be able to watch him play.

Rubio doesn't play on Christmas, but he has a game the following day on Dec. 26. Ultimately the decision will be based on rehab, and the Timberwolves' medical staff giving him clearance to play, but Dec. 26 falls right at the seven week mark of his initial 7-8 week timetable. Rubio's rehab has been going well, but he's still not able to put weight on his sprained ankle. We'll be monitoring his status closely, but while he's sidelined, Mo Williams may be worth a look as he's finally taken the starting spot away from Zach LaVine.
Nov 20 - 2:52 PM

K.J. McDaniels said he was frustrated that his minutes were limited while he was playing well on Wednesday.

McDaniels didn't miss a shot during Wednesday's loss, scoring eight points (two 3-pointers) to go with two rebounds and a block, but coach Brett Brown limited him to just 11 minutes of action. Brown explained that the 76ers have a "logjam at the big wing position," which is an interesting statement considering McDaniels' competition goes by the name of Hollis Thompson, Luc Mbah a Moute, and Robert Covington. McDaniels is clearly the most talented player out of the group, but the 76ers organization is not interested in putting talented players on the floor if it gives the team a chance to win. Still, the Sixers are likely eventually going to give McDaniels minutes in order to give him a chance to develop, and he can be viewed as a stash candidate for owners in standard leagues.

Carmelo Anthony revealed after Tuesday's loss to the Bucks that his left knee has been sore since the second game of the season and he's undergone tests on it.

"I think he's a smart enough and a veteran enough player that if he had some concern about where he is I think he would come either to me or to our training staff about trying to be smart," said head coach Derek Fisher. "He hasn't done that as of yet. I'm sure we'll continue to keep an eye on it. But he's good to go for now." The Knicks have not revealed exactly what tests Anthony has undergone, but this is something to keep an eye on. Anthony has said that he'll try to play through the pain, but if the Knicks continue their losing ways, it's plausible that Carmelo could eventually decide to rest. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but there's no reason to panic right now.
