Festus Ezeli will miss six to nine months after undergoing knee surgery.

Ezeli suffered a sprained right knee at the end of the regular season. The Warriors said he needed surgery to reinforce the MCL and PCL ligaments in his right knee. Unfortunately for Golden State, the timeline makes it unlikely that Ezeli will return before Christmas and could be sidelined for most of next season.

Moe Harkless will start next to Victor Oladipo, Evan Fournier, Channing Frye and Nikola Vucevic on Monday against the Cavs.

Nov 24 - 6:13 PM

Xavier Henry has suffered a torn left Achilles and will miss the rest of the season.

He just can't catch a break and it's become really easy to root for him. Henry had a knee injury keep him out for much of last season and also tore ligaments in his wrist at the end of the season. His days with the Lakers are likely over and he may have a tough time catching on with any NBA team next season. Hopefully, he proves everyone wrong.

Andrew Bogut (eye) went through a light practice on Monday and remains questionable for Tuesday against the Heat.

Going through practice is big for Bogut and it does sound like he could play. However, the Warriors didn't really miss him with Marreese Speights playing out of his mind. Owners in weekly leagues should probably consider benching him while Speights carries a lot of risk. The Warriors do have four games this week, so that makes the decision a little tougher.

James Johnson (ankle) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

He has been out since Nov. 16 with what looked like a severe ankle sprain, but Johnson is likely going to see his normal minutes. He was actually turning in mid-round value because of all the defensive stats, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. To be clear, he's not a must-own player and obviously won't be a mid-round guy on the season.

Matt Barnes (calf) will not play against the Hornets on Monday and he could miss a few games.

He's been dealing with a calf issue for about the past week and the Clippers will just sit him down tonight. It'll be second-year swingman Reggie Bullock in the starting lineup, but Jamal Crawford probably benefits most. Barnes is not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 24 - 5:38 PM

Tobias Harris (calf) will not play on Monday night against the Cavs.

This will be his second game out of the lineup and the Magic will have to tweak their rotation again. Nikola Vucevic had a career game last time out while Elfrid Payton benefitted as Evan Fournier and Victor Oladipo held down the wings. Moe Harkless will also get more burn.
Nov 24 - 5:35 PM

P.J. Hairston (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

For some reason they upgraded him to questionable, but they're pulling him out 90 minutes before the game. Hairston was losing ground in his brief opportunity, so he's unlikely to be a key contributor. Gary Neal and Gerald Henderson are low-end plays tonight.
Nov 24 - 5:28 PM

Brandon Knight is listed as questionable for Tuesday against the Pistons.

He went to the locker room on Saturday, but did return and looked pretty good. The Bucks have a four-game week coming up, so his fantasy owners should probably still start him even with some uncertainty. If you have safe options, it makes some sense to bench Knight, though. Jerryd Bayless, Kendall Marshall, Nate Wolters, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo would all help sans Knight.
Nov 24 - 3:57 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) and Carlos Boozer (shoulder) missed practice on Monday.

Davis drew the start on Sunday, but was a major letdown with just four points, five rebounds, one assist, one block and six fouls in 22 minutes against a soft Nuggets D. His ankle injury is not considered serious and we would expect him to play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. The "revenge game" narrative has lost some of its mojo, so Davis might not be a great play for that one.
Nov 24 - 3:17 PM

Kevin Durant (foot) went through some contact in practice on Monday.

He has a big evaluation coming up on Thanksgiving, but his return is getting close. At the very earliest, he could play Friday, but that would be extremely optimistic. His owner should bench him because he is not even allowed to play on Wednesday because of the NBA's hardship exception. The Thunder only have a Friday game after that. Anyone who grabbed KD in their drafts should feel pretty good right now.
Nov 24 - 2:31 PM

Russell Westbrook (hand) could return to Friday's game against the Knicks.

He went through some contact in practce on Monday. Last week he wasn't supposed to be re-evaluated until the coming weekend, but he's apparently doing much better than expected. Fantasy owners in weekly leagues will still probably want to bench Westbrook because the Thunder have no games after Friday this week. Reggie Jackson will lose some value, but he should still be worth owning in just about all leagues.
