Dwyane Wade says he missed the start of the third quarter Tuesday night because his surgically repaired left knee swelled up at halftime.

Wade said Wednesday afternoon his left knee, which he had operated on following last season, was still swollen and sore after Tuesday's Game 6 overtime win. The Heat guard is already dealing with bone bruises in his right knee, which Wade said is more painful than last season's knee injury. Wade only managed 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting in 36 minutes Tuesday night, but we can't foresee any injury or ailment keeping him off the court for Thursday's Game 7. Whether Wade is healthy enough to make a difference is another issue entirely.

Donovan Mitchell made his first NBA start at point guard against the Nets during a 118-107 loss on Friday, scoring 15 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

Those assists are a career high, but he did struggle as a shooter with his 5-of-15 line from the field. Mitchell continues to just blow right by defenders and he did an excellent job of finding open shooters along the 3-point line. Mitchell has made it abundantly clear since he arrived in Las Vegas that he deserves heavy minutes, and yet he's been better than expected. He should be owned in every league and his owners can worry about his sub-par FG% later.

Kemba Walker scored a season-high 47 points (five short of career-high) on Friday, but the Hornets still fell to the Bulls 123-120.

The Hornets are reeling with six straight losses, and coach Steve Clifford said the team has no identity right now -- the Bulls were dead last in offensive efficiency and still put up 123 points. As for Kemba, he was sensational en route to the second-highest point total of his career, hitting 17-of-27 shots with six rebounds, five assists and five triples. The All-Star PG will try to help the Hornets right the ship on Saturday against a Clippers team that has lost seven straight.

Hassan Whiteside made 10-of-12 from the field for 22 points during a 91-88 win in Washington on Friday, adding 16 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He was terrific late in the game as the Wizards almost pulled off a comeback win. After the knee injury derailed his October, Whiteside is on a roll over his last five games with averages of 17.4 points, 15.8 boards, 2.4 blocks and 1.0 steals. He should be around those numbers all season as the team continues to find ways to get him the rock.

Kyle Lowry scored 22 points with 10 assists, eight rebounds and five 3-pointers in an emphatic win over the Knicks on Friday.

He was remarkably efficient, hitting 8-of-12 from the field and 5-of-7 from deep. Lowry's touches have been reduced from 85.0 in 2016-17 to 74.1 in 2017-18, so that could explain why he's only averaging 14.9 points after a career-high 22.4 PPG last season. With Delon Wright (shoulder) out, there's a good chance that Lowry's touches trend up again.

John Wall said fluid in his knee limited him on Friday in 91-88 loss to the Heat, making 3-of-12 from the field for eight points with three rebounds, eight assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He started out 0-of-7 in this game and he wasn't shy about what went wrong in the first half. "I could barely move out there. I couldn’t get the team going. It kind of hurt us," Wall said. He revealed he had treatment on his knee earlier this week, and that his status for Sunday depends how his knee feels in the next day or so. He was in a small slump this month, so perhaps this is why. If he's limited, Tim Frazier would start while Bradley Beal would carry the offense.

Pascal Siakam started for Serge Ibaka (knee) in a 107-84 win over the Knicks on Friday and scored 13 points with four rebounds, five assists, three blocks and one steal in 34 minutes.

As good as he was offensively, Siakam was even better on defense and was a big reason why Kristaps Porzingis was held to 13 points on 3-of-13 shooting. Siakam hit 6-of-11 shots and 1-of-2 from the line, and this was no fluke with averages of 14.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals in three previous fill-in starts. His fantasy value hinges on the status of Ibaka for Sunday's game vs. the Wizards, but go pick him up if we get bad news.
Nov 17 - 10:28 PM

Bradley Beal scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

That's his first double-double of the season and the third time he's hit 40 minutes. Beal could be looking at more shots in the short term because John Wall (knee) is a little banged up. On the year, Beal has a 35.8 usage rate and a 61.7 TS% when he's not with Wall, so he could be ready to feast. Beal has been as advertised and should be a top-25 player the rest of the way with first-round upside.

Victor Oladipo grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds against the Pistons during a 107-100 win on Friday, adding 21 points, four assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers.

The Pacers looked like they were dead when they were down 22 points in the third quarter, but they managed to pull out the win with their 36-19 edge in the fourth. Oladipo's minutes have been soaring lately with 35.6 per game over his last five outings with one garbage-time game mixed in, averaging 23.2 points, 6.8 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.8 treys. He's the real deal.

X-rays taken on Tim Hardaway Jr.'s left foot came back negative.

The Knicks are calling his injury a sore left foot for now, but it's a little concerning that he needed X-rays. THJ checked out of this game for good with three minutes to go in the fourth, but it was garbage time at that point and it's a good sign that he was playing through it. We'll put him on the injury report until we get an update at Saturday's practice. He finished with 13 points (5-of-11 FGs), five rebounds, one assist, three steals and three triples in 33 minutes. If THJ does end up missing time, we might get an extended look at rookie Damyean Dotson.

Myles Turner did not play down the stretch against the Pistons on Friday, making 3-of-13 from the field for seven points with five rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

He just didn't have it on offense while the Pacers were rolling with their unit without him in the fourth. Shockingly, Turner missed all 10 shots from within 20 feet in this game, so credit Andre Drummond there. Turner has kind of cooled off since his "I'm back" 21-point, 12-board game on Nov. 7, averaging 9.8 points, 6.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.4 treys and 2.6 blocks in those five. The blocks are still making his owners happy, but this presents one of the best buy-low opportunities for one of the hardest categories to add in fantasy. We still view Turner as an elite fantasy asset.

Skal Labissiere will replace Willie Cauley-Stein in the starting lineup on Friday vs. the Blazers.

Strangely enough, the Kings are going to start Zach Randolph at center against Jusuf Nurkic. Good luck with that. Skal definitely deserves more minutes and has shown some really nice flashes this season, but it's hard to add him until we see if he sticks in the first unit.
