Tom Thibodeau says the Bulls are hoping Joakim Noah will not need surgery to repair his plantar fasciitis.

The injury has become a chronic issue for Noah, who barely practiced after the All-Star break. We imagine both parties would like to find a way to solve the problem for good, but the recovery from such a surgery can be long and troublesome. While Noah had some very strong performances at the end of the Nets series and to open the Heat series, it was clear by Games 4 and 5 against Miami that he wasn't anywhere close to 100 percent. The Bulls will likely re-evaluate Noah's foot after a few weeks before making the next decision.

Rudy Gobert scored a career-high 22 points on 6-of-8 shooting in Tuesday's 112-105 win over the Suns.

The Stifle Tower was coming off a 14-point, 17-rebound and five-block effort against the Lakers the previous night and kept his foot on the gas pedal with 11 rebounds and four blocks Tuesday. He also hit 10-of-11 free throws on the night, bringing his season average up to 66.9 percent. You can check out his final dunk of the game in the link below.

Zach Randolph returned from a seven-game absence on Tuesday vs. the 76ers, scoring 12 points with 14 rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes.

He was away from the team following the loss of his mother, so it was great to see him back out there. "It’s important to get back to working," Randolph said. "This is what my mother would want me to do. Don’t sit around and be sad. Go back to work. So I’m doing it for her. My mom was my father, too." Welcome back, Z-Bo. He's worth a look If you need points and rebounds, but his upside in standard leagues is low.

Marc Gasol scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes in Tuesday's 96-91 win over the 76ers.

This was the second night of a back-to-back set after Gasol triple-doubled on Monday with 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in a double-overtime win. He played 46 minutes in that contest, so coach David Fizdale said before Tuesday's game that he would play a "serviceable" amount of minutes vs Philly. Apparently that means 34. Gasol is rolling right now and his owners just need to hope that he stays healthy.
Dec 6 - 11:19 PM

Richaun Holmes started at center on Tuesday vs. Memphis and played well, scoring 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 34 minutes.

So much upside. Unfortunately, Holmes is buried on the bench this season and only picked up a lot of run because Joel Embiid was resting and Jahlil Okafor was out with an illness. Nerlens Noel (knee) is also on the way back, so it's going to be tough for Holmes to emerge unless a trade or two opens up some minutes in Philly.
Dec 6 - 11:01 PM

Ersan Ilyasova scored a season-high 23 points with 17 rebounds in Tuesday's 96-91 loss to the Grizzlies.

It was easily one of the lines of the night, as Ilyasova shot 7-of-19 from the field with four assists, two blocks, one steal and four triples in 40 minutes of action. Joel Embiid was resting and Jahlil Okafor was out with an illness, so he took advantage of his extra minutes. He's scored 17+ points in three straight games with a combined nine 3-pointers in that span, so there's no way he should be sitting on any waiver wires.
Dec 6 - 10:51 PM

Rodney Hood (sore right hamstring) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

Not good. He only played 12 minutes in the first half and even made a brief trip to the locker room. This is the same hamstring that he strained last week which forced him to miss a game on Dec. 1, so it sounds like he might have tweaked it. He finished with eight points, two assists, one steal and two triples. Joe Ingles started the second half in place of Hood, but Joe Johnson is probably the better speculative pickup in deeper leagues.
Dec 6 - 10:34 PM

Goran Dragic feasted against the Knicks on Tuesday, dropping 29 points with seven assists, four rebounds, two steals and four triples.

He also turned the ball over five times, but made up for it by shooting 11-of-17 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line. Dragic has been on fire since returning from his elbow injury, scoring 27 or more points in three out of his last five games. He's going to be a fantasy monster until reinforcements arrive.
Dec 6 - 10:26 PM

Elfrid Payton came off the bench, but played 35 minutes and hit 9-of-12 shots, 3-of-3 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for a career-high 25 points, nine assists, three steals and three blocks in possibly the best game of his young NBA career.

Payton had scored 8, 2 and 3 points in each of his previous three games, hitting just 6-of-19 shots, but finally put it all together tonight. Coming off the bench is a buzzkill for Payton, but he's clearly a better player than D.J. Augustin, and, well, that hair! This could be the spark Payton needed to get his season going, and if he was dropped in your league, now might be a good time to pick him up. Just in case...
Dec 6 - 10:23 PM

Hassan Whiteside scored 23 points with 14 rebounds in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

The Heat had nine available players, so HW ended up with a career-high 20 field goal attempts in 38 minutes, connecting on 10 of them. He also added one assist, one steal and a few blocks, but his owners already knew that. He only hit 3-of-9 shots from the line and he's shooting 54.0 percent from there on the season, so that's the only thing holding him back from returning first-round value in standard leagues.
Dec 6 - 10:16 PM

Carmelo Anthony matched his season-high with 35 points on 13-of-27 shooting in Tuesday's 114-103 win over the Heat.

The Knicks have won four straight games and now get to look forward to a matchup with the Cavaliers at MSG Wednesday. Anthony added four rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers, hitting 6-of-7 from the line. His production is down this season playing next to Derrick Rose and Kristaps Porzingis, but he's still capable of posting monster lines like you saw tonight.
Dec 6 - 9:56 PM

John Wall went nuts on Tuesday, hitting 18-of-31 shots, 5-of-8 3-pointers and 11-of-14 free throws for a career-high 52 points, four rebounds, eight assists, three steals and just four turnovers in Tuesday's 124-116 loss to the Magic.

Obviously, Wall couldn't do it all by himself, but he tried. He ended a streak of four straight games with at least 11 assists, but his numbers are a little scary right now. He's averaging 25.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 12.4 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five games. Hopefully this is just the tip of the iceberg for Wall, but chances are this will end up being his best game of the season.
