The Milwaukee Bucks made a qualifying offer to Brandon Jennings and plan to match any offer from other teams, according to Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports.

GM John Hammond added that the team will negotiate with Jennings. Yesterday the Bucks had made Jennings available in a trade for the right price, but there wasn't really a peep about him during the draft. He was absolutely terrible in the postseason, shooting 29.8 percent from the field and his poor shooting has been a problem throughout his career. Over Jennings' four seasons, Milwaukee has averaged a rank of 23 in offensive efficiency among NBA teams each year. He did have his best 3-point shooting season ever, so maybe brighter days are ahead at 23 years old.

Updating a previous report, coach Kevin McHale is saying that the Rockets will probably be without Dwight Howard (knee) for Saturday's game vs. the Mavericks.

That means that Tarik Black will draw another start on Saturday, but he really doesn't do much aside from rebound. Dwight's minutes will likely be split up between Black, Donatas Montiejunas, and Kostas Papanikolaou. Kostas is coming off a 19-point game from Wednesday, and could make for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned for an official update on Dwight's status, but have your Plan B in place as it's looking like he'll be unable to go.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

With P.J. Hairston (ankle) also sidelined, Gerald Henderson will likely draw another start and get all the minutes he can handle. Henderson is coming off a disappointing two rebound, zero-point dud from Wednesday, but he'll look to bounce-back with a favorable matchup vs. Orlando. MKG is considered day-to-day, but remains without an official return date.
Nov 20 - 7:15 PM

Gary Neal (concussion) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

Neal still needs to pass the leagues' concussion protocol, but it's looking like he's very close to making a return. He's averaging 12.2 points and 1.2 three-pointers per game this season, so he's worth a look for owners seeking a 3-point specialist upon his return. Just know that he's also shooting 39.8 percent from the field.
Nov 20 - 7:08 PM

Matt Barnes will again draw the start on Thursday as the Clippers take on the Heat.

Barnes looks to have won his starting job back, and has scored in double figures in two of his last three outings. Hopefully he can continue his solid play tonight, as he has a favorable matchup vs. the Heat. He's worth a speculative add in standard leagues for his ability to contribute to each category on the stat sheet.
Nov 20 - 6:50 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Clippers.

This marks the fourth consecutive game Wade will be sidelined with this hamstring injury, and Mario Chalmers will continue to start as long as Wade is out. Chalmers has been great with the starting unit, averaging 20.0 points, 5.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game, and he should be in all active lineups on a night with just two games being played.
Nov 20 - 6:36 PM

Josh McRoberts (toe blister) will play Thursday vs. the Clippers.

McRoberts will likely be limited to 10-15 minutes, so he's not a very attractive plug-and-play option tonight. Shawne Williams has been fantastic as a starter with McRoberts sidelined, but he'll likely head to the bench once McBob is fully healthy, which will certainly hurt his fantasy value. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with McRoberts.
Nov 20 - 6:31 PM

Luol Deng will start Thursday vs. the Clippers, and Danny Granger will head to the bench.

Deng will have some increased opportunity tonight with Dwyane Wade (hamstring) sidelined, so get him active. Deng is averaging 14.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers on the year, and has a favorable matchup vs. the Clippers.
Nov 20 - 6:26 PM

Marcus Smart (ankle) said that he doubts he'll play Sunday, and he remains without a definitive return date.

"I couldn’t really tell you [an expected return date]. It just depends," Smart said. "One day my body feels good, probably one day it doesn’t. I’ve got to listen to my body." Smart was able to do some straight-line movement during Thursday's practice, but still is unable to do anything side-to-side. He may be able resume practicing next week, and after Sunday's game vs. Portland the Celtics don't play again until Friday, Nov. 28. We'll consider Smart questionable for that one, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. However, with averages of just 6.8 points, 1.2 assists, and 1.2 steals, he’s not a viable option in standard leagues.
Nov 20 - 6:23 PM

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.
Nov 20 - 5:24 PM

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.
Nov 20 - 4:56 PM

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.
