Andrew Bogut said he expects to be 100 percent by the start of next season.

Bogut clarified the statement by saying that could change if "I go out and get hit by a car or something," which sounds funny but isn't all that far from the realm of possibilities given his injury history. Bogut's surgically repaired left ankle limited him to just 32 games in the regular season and affected him enough in the postseason that he required a painkilling injection during the first round. If Bogut can stay healthy for an entire season, he could have a strong fantasy impact but that's a very big "if" at this point in his career.

John Wall (left knee soreness) is not practicing on Friday.

Hopefully this is just a maintenance day for Wall to keep him fresh. He had a lot of treatment on his knee last week and he did miss a game on Sunday. For now, expect him to be ready to roll for Saturday against the Blazers after a 31-point Wednesday.

Jared Dudley (knee) is available to play on Friday against the Pelicans.

He's been out of the lineup since he tweaked his knee under the basket back on Nov. 10. Marquese Chriss is in some kind of slump and it'll be interesting to see how the power forward minutes are split between the three. This could be bad news for Chriss.

Wilson Chandler (lower back soreness) is probable against Memphis on Friday.

He was probable for Wednesday and did play 27 minutes, so this is the status quo for Chandler going forward. Although, he's been injury prone, so you may want to make sure he's good to go. The Nuggets have shift him back to small forward against a bigger Grizzlies team and how him at the four didn't work out against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Nikola Jokic (ankle) is expected to play on Friday night against the Grizzlies.

He did have a slight tweak of his right ankle on Wednesday, but he did return in a game that the Nuggets were being blown out. Jokic should be close to 100 percent as he looks to anchor the offense now that Paul Millsap (wrist) is out. Fire him up in all leagues and consider him in DFS even in a subpar matchup.
Nov 24 - 1:11 PM

Andre Drummond (dental implant) and Avery Bradley (groin tightness) will play Friday against the Thunder.

Both players missed practice on Wednesday, but it appears that was only precautionary. Drummond has been playing at a high level over the first five weeks of the season. He is currently averaging 13.5 points, a league-leading 15.3 rebounds and a career-high 3.4 assists, to go along with 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks. Drummond is also shooting 61.5 percent from the free-throw line, far above his career average of 39.1 percent.

Eric Gordon (sore calf) and Ryan Anderson (illness) are practicing Friday and are expected to play Saturday vs. the Knicks, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen.

Gordon was unable to play on Wednesday, but fortunately, it appears it will be just a one-game absence. The Rockets didn't miss either player on Wednesday, as they blew out the Nuggets by 30 points. Gordon had started 13 of the first 14 games he appeared in this season, before moving into the sixth-man role last week. Gordon should continue to see plenty of minutes and scoring opportunities as long as he is healthy.

C.J. Miles (personal) will not play vs. the Pacers on Friday.

Congrats to the Miles family, as C.J.'s wife gave birth to a baby girl on Thanksgiving night. With Miles out of the mix on Friday, it will open up more minutes for Norman Powell and OG Anunoby. OG started at small forward on Wednesday, but finished with just three points, one board and one assist in 16 minutes. Powell, making his return to the lineup after missing four games due to a hip injury, scored 11 points with four rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes on Wednesday.
Nov 24 - 10:51 AM

Brandan Wright (groin) is out for Friday night against the Nuggets.

After his injury on Saturday, Wright will be missing his third game. There is no timetable for a return, but there hasn't been much information to suggest he'll be back in his next handful of games. Deyonta Davis is coming off a terrific 14-point game on Wednesday and could be a sneaky stream or DFS punt with 13-20 minutes.
Nov 23 - 6:52 PM

Nicolas Batum (ulnar nerve contusion) traveled with the team to Cleveland and is listed as questionable for Friday.

This is good news that he's not staying behind for further evaluation. It's a very specific diagnosis for a nerve in his elbow and hopefully it's not affecting the feeling in his arm. Batum reportedly feels this new injury isn't as bad as his left elbow injury that kept him out for six weeks, which makes sense because it didn't look bad in the second quarter on Wednesday. If Batum can't go, Jeremy Lamb would be busy in the starting lineup. Expect Batum to be a game-time call for the 8:00 EST start.

Lonzo Ball made 4-of-8 from the field for 11 points during a 113-102 loss to the Kings on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's getting killed on social media for his awful shooting percentages, but he's actually been decent on the road. In his eight road games, he has a sub-par 45.8 TS%, but that plummets to a historically bad 30.6 TS% when he's at Staples Center. He did also miss both of his free throws to drop him to 42.9 percent from the charity stripe on the season -- that's worse than Dwight Howard, Andre Drummond or any free throw percentage qualifier. The good news is he's taking a step in the right direction, but he has a very deep hole to climb out of to be a reliable fantasy asset.
Nov 23 - 1:59 AM

Julius Randle scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 29 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

The Kings were feeding Zach Randolph and that helps explain why Randle saw more run. Coach Luke Walton said he wanted to pick up the pace with Randle against Z-Bo and Brook Lopez got burned in the first quarter. While we did expect Randle to play some more power forward after Larry Nance Jr. (hand) went down, it didn't really happen. In the last 11 games, Randle played just 16 minutes next to Brook Lopez and 243 minutes without him. Randle may not take a hit with Nance back next week.
