Dirk Nowitzki has been in touch with impending free agent Dwight Howard.

"I reached out to him and told him we'd love to have him. ... To me, when he's healthy, he's the most dominant big man in the league." Nowitzki said Thursday. The Mavs are among a handful of teams that have the cap space to seriously go after Howard when free agency opens on Monday. However, they don't have the most talented roster. The Rockets, Lakers, Warriors and Hawks will also be trying to score meetings with Howard.

Kyle O'Quinn will start in place of Enes Kanter (back spasms) on Friday vs. the Hawks.

Joakim Noah likely would've been activated, but he's home with an illness. In addition to KOQ seeing a bump in minutes, the Knicks might finally unleash talented second-year center Willy Hernangomez. Both players could split the center minutes tonight, putting them on the punt radar in DFS.

Enes Kanter (back spasms) will not play against the Hawks on Friday.

We don't have any noteworthy back spasms on Kanter during his career, so hopefully this doesn't linger. He's actually been very effective for the Knicks, which has kept Willy Hernangomez at bay. With Kanter out, Hernangomez should be in the rotation and could split the center minutes with Kyle O'Quinn. The Knicks may also go small and throw out Kristaps Porzingis at the five.

John Collins will start against the Knicks on Friday.

This was an easy call for the Hawks after his strong 14-point, 10-board start in 38 minutes on Wednesday. Collins also logged all of the backup center minutes and his playing time should be very high again, assuming he can avoid foul trouble. It should be fun to see how he fares against Kristaps Porzingis. Collins should be owned in all standard leagues.

Marcus Morris will start against the Magic on Friday and is expected to rest against the Pacers on Saturday.

The Celtics will go smaller against Aaron Gordon at the four. Morris has played 24.4 minutes per game over his last five, but he has yet to play in both ends of a back-to-back set this season -- he sat out on Nov. 6. Morris should be looking at around 25 minutes tonight, which takes away from Semi Ojeleye and Daniel Theis.

Damian Lillard scored 34 points with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers during a 127-125 Friday matinee win in Brooklyn.

It was almost reverse Lillard time with 30 points in the first three quarters and just four in the fourth in this win. In the last loss to the Nets on Nov. 10, Lillard stressed how the Blazers struggled against the smaller lineups, but this time they were ready to go and crushed the Nets when they went super small, including a 10-0 run in the second quarter. Lillard has also made 10 free throws in two of his last three games and this gem gets him over the 25 points-per-game plateau on the year.

Jusuf Nurkic had a monster game in Brooklyn on Friday, posting season-highs 29 points and 15 boards with three assists, one steal and four blocks.

The four blocks also match his season high in what was easily his best game of the year. In their last game against Brooklyn on Nov. 10, Nurkic didn't play much down the stretch and it cost the Blazers. This time, he came out on fire in the third quarter and protected the paint on defense. While this is great, it's not party time yet on Nurk and he has made just 13-of-26 from the line in his last four. That said, things are clearly looking up and we should see more Nurk Alerts in the near future.

Ben Simmons (left elbow) is out for Saturday's game against the Magic.

He experienced some soreness in his left elbow and he will be re-evaluated on Sunday. Excluding Markelle Fultz (shoulder) earlier this year, the 76ers are usually very careful with their stars and ruling him out a day early is a little troubling. With him out, T.J. McConnell should be looking at some heavy minutes as basically the rest of the rotation also has to pick up the slack, especially Jerryd Bayless and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 23 points with four rebounds, six assists, one block, one steal, four 3-pointers and no turnovers in 31 minutes during a 127-125 loss to the Blazers on Friday.

The zero turnovers is impressive and he almost hit a would-be, game-winning triple, but it was short after the Nets got off to a fast start today. Besides an eight-point dud on Wednesday, Dinwiddie has been cooking with gas over his last four with three 21-plus scoring games to go with some full stat lines, averaging 19.3 points, 3.0 boards, 8.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.5 treys on 46.3 percent from the field over those four. He should be a difference maker in all leagues for the next month and possibly beyond.

John Wall (left knee) had an MRI on Friday and the results have not yet been revealed.

This left knee issue seems to have been bothering Wall for a good portion of this month and he will be questionable for Saturday. Hopefully, this is just a precaution, but obviously taking the time to get an MRI does show that Wall's knee is just not right at this time. Hopefully, we'll have an update later today. If you're in a deeper league, it's not a bad idea to add Tim Frazier until Wall gets the all clear.
Nov 24 - 2:31 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 17 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.

He's coming in fairly hot on offense with a 20-point game on Wednesday. The return of Trevor Booker didn't really affect RHJ too much and once again coach Kenny Atkinson used Hollis-Jefferson at the five today. Not having D'Angelo Russell (knee) around likely explains the slight uptick in scoring, but RHJ is headed for a career year as he flirts with top-50 value.
Nov 24 - 2:28 PM

Jarrett Allen played a career-high 24 minutes against the Blazers on Friday, scoring nine points with eight rebounds, one block and two steals.

He made an impact yet again and he played down the stretch in this tight game. Allen has been the best pure center on the roster and he's meshed nicely with the up-tempo style of coach Kenny Atkinson. While the Nets do sit guys out if they're 99 percent, Allen's upside is undeniable for blocks and he's seen his minutes increase in each of his last two games. If you're hunting for blocks, Allen is worth a look in standard leagues.
