The Raptors are interested in trading for Eric Bledsoe, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com

This deal is still in the embryonic stages, but the framework includes Andrea Bargnani and DeMar DeRozan. The Raptors were willing to bend over backwards to deal Bargnani and they would likely be dying to make this deal despite DeRozan's best season as a pro in 2012-13. Of course, the Raptors did hastily sign DeRozan to a huge $40 million deal last offseason. The Raptors also would like to make room for Terrence Ross. Even though the Clippers could use a shooting guard, they can probably do better.

Cody Zeller was effective in his 33 minutes as the starting power forward against the Warriors on Friday with 15 points, 14 boards and one turnover.

He only committed two fouls and didn't make many mistakes tonight. Zeller was coming in with a few nice games under his belt before this one and there's a chance he gets his minutes to around 26 even when Marvin Williams (shoulder) comes back. He's worth a look in standard leagues for now, but preferably in exchange for something you're not going to miss much.

Marreese Speights looked like an All-Star against the Hornets on Friday, scoring 27 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in just 24 minutes.

He attempted 20 shots tonight and made the most of his four offensive boards. Speights has seen a slight increase in minutes to 20.0 per game over his last five, averaging 17.6 points, 4.6 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.6 blocks. David Lee (hamstring) is getting close to a return, so it's hard to be too excited about picking Speights up as anything more than a short-term, deep league asset.

DeMar DeRozan went to the locker room due to a left groin strain and will not return.

He was in a lot of pain and he walked very slowed to the locker room, so it's possible he misses some time. The Raptors will likely give him an MRI, and we would probably consider him as doubtful for Sunday against the Lakers. Lou Williams replaced him and would be a very strong pickup in all leagues -- he was already hot coming in. Terrence Ross would also see an uptick while James Johnson also gets more minutes and is arguably a better grab than Ross.

Isaiah Canaan went to the locker room on Friday and will not return.

He attempted his free throws after what looks like a bad sprain. Jason Terry replaced him while Nick Johnson and Troy Daniels could also help out. We'll look for an update on Canaan from the team, but he could miss some time and the Rockets would be in deep trouble with Patrick Beverley (hamstring) without a target date. Worst yet, Canaan was playing well and finished with 13 points, two rebounds and three 3-pointers.

Darren Collison is starting against the Spurs on Friday.

The Kings continue to not update their probable players until after the tip, which has become very annoying. Collison returns from a two-game absence and we'll let you know how he does tonight.
Nov 28 - 8:27 PM

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Nuggets.

With Thomas sidelined, Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe will get more than their usual allotment of minutes, and Gerald Green will see some extended minutes off the bench. Rookie G Tyler Ennis will also join the active roster, but he's a negligible fantasy option. Green makes for a sneaky play in daily leagues as the team's primary offensive weapon off the bench.
Nov 28 - 7:43 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison (quad) are listed as probable to face the Spurs on Friday.

Now it sounds like they're going to play unless coach Mike Malone pulls a Tom Thibodeau. Gay owners will still want to check back for an update in the next 30 minutes. Omri Casspi would only be a handcuff in deep leagues if Gay does make it back.
Nov 28 - 7:26 PM

Ryan Hollins will start at center in place of DeMarcus Cousins (illness) on Friday.

He's played a whopping 11 minutes all season and just one minute in the last seven minutes combined. Hollins getting minutes in the 20s would be a huge surprise and he is not a fantasy option tonight. Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams figure to benefit the most.
Nov 28 - 7:15 PM

Matt Barnes (calf) will start against the Rockets on Friday night.

He is coming off a two-game absence due to an aggravation to his calf. The Clippers will probably monitor his minutes, so he's not a fantasy option. Reggie Bullock will move back to a reserve and has no fantasy value.
Nov 28 - 6:42 PM

John Henson (foot) will not play on Friday night, and coach Jason Kidd does not expect him to be available for Saturday's game either.

With both Henson and Zaza Pachulia (personal) unavailable, Larry Sanders will get all the run he can handle, with Ersan Ilyasova and Giannis Antetokounmpo seeing some minutes backing up the center position. Sanders has been coming on lately, and could make for a solid low-budget play in daily leagues tonight with a favorable matchup vs. the Pistons, and a healthy heaping of minutes coming his way.

Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel revealed for the first time that in addition to George Hill's knee contusion, he is also dealing with a tear in his left quad and is not expected back until mid-December.

Vogel said that the tear did not show up in the initial MRI because there was too much blood, but that is the reason Hill has been out for so long. C.J. Watson is expected to make his season debut Friday night, and it's not known exactly how that will affect Donald Sloan's minutes. However, given Sloan's solid play so far this season, he'll likely remain in the starting lineup as Watson is eased back into the rotation, and he should remain be held in standard leagues until something changes.
