The Rockets have traded Royce White to the Sixers.

He's been a headache from day one with the Rockets and wasn't going to be a member of the Summer League team this month. White left the D-League without the Rockets permission earlier this year and has taken his complaints about the franchise publicly. Apparently, he has a friend in former Rockets assistant GM turned Sixers GM Sam Hinkie. It's a low-risk move for the Sixers that could produce rewards if White gets over his well-documented anxiety issues.

Larry Sanders started again and scored eight points on 4-of-12 shooting with 15 rebounds, two steals and four blocks in Friday's win over the Sixers.

Sanders logged 27 minutes and only had four fouls, but the big thing to keep in mind is that the opponent was Philly. The Show has had a nice start to the year and he should be in all lineups until that changes.

O.J. Mayo continued to put distance between his fat days and his skinny days with another solid effort on Friday, scoring 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including five threes) with three rebounds, five assists and a steal in 28 minutes.

Starting or not he's arguably the Bucks' best player right now and he looks like he's going to be one of the steals of this year's drafts. If he's available in your league, he shouldn't be.

Nerlens Noel double-doubled with 14 points, 10 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in Friday's loss to the Bucks.

So far so good for Noel, who has averaged a double-double and three blocks for both of his NBA games. He hit 7-of-11 shots tonight after starting the year on a 2-of-11 outing, and he didn't attempt any free throws which is also a good thing for owners.

Kevin Love grabbed 16 rebounds against the Bulls on Friday during an overtime 114-108 win to go with 16 points, one assist, four steals and one 3-pointer on 5-of-17 shooting.

The rebounds are coming in bunches and he's never really been much of a big offensive rebounder anyway, so setting up further from the basket shouldn't hurt his overall output there. Love was actually much better than this stat line suggests, which is a great sign after a slow preseason.

Tristan Thompson had a whopping 12 offensive boards against the Bulls on Friday, adding one defensive rebound, two assists, two blocks and 16 points.

The offensive rebounds were a huge story here and Thompson was so great that he played power forward, unlike Thursday night. He still isn't going to do too much on defense, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too eager to grab him while Anderson Varejao is healthy. From the fun stat department: The last player to have 12 offensive boards and one defensive board was Zydrunas Ilgauskas in 2005.

Derrick Rose said his ankle injury was "minor" after Friday's game against the Cavs.

"I'm walking around so I think everyone can breathe," said Rose. Add this to your list of concerns but don't be overly concerned about it, as it comes with the territory of owning him.

LeBron James put the Bulls away in Friday's 114-108 overtime win, making 14-of-30 from the field for 36 points with eight rebounds, four assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

The shot volume was extremely high and coach Tom Thibodeau has been able to keep LeBron in check for much of his career. LeBron shot just 39.2 percent against the Bulls last season, which is by far his lowest against any team last season. Despite two somewhat sub-par offensive games, there is still zero reason to worry.
Oct 31 - 11:18 PM

K.J. McDaniels scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound and zero steals or blocks before leaving Friday's game due to a hip injury after 14 minutes.

We'll pass along details as they come but for now it doesn't sound like it's serious. If you drafted McDaniels you probably should have been stashing him anyway, so try to hold on unless you're looking at a mid-round pickup or the news comes back bad.
Oct 31 - 11:15 PM

Mike Dunleavy flirted with a triple-double against the Cavs on Friday with 14 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

Hello, Dun-Dun. This is one of the best fantasy lines of the season and Dunleavy bounced back beautifully from his Wednesday dud. He's obviously not going to be this good, but if you hate the guy on the end of your bench and want to ride Dunleavy until Jimmy Butler (thumb) gets back, that works.
Oct 31 - 11:07 PM

Derrick Rose suffered an ankle sprain on Friday and did not return, finishing with 20 points, four rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

X-rays were negative and he was able to play through it before heading to the locker room several minutes later. Rose is likely going to be handled with kid gloves, so he's extremely questionable for Saturday against the Wolves. Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks get an uptick in fantasy value.
Oct 31 - 10:51 PM

Adrian Wojnarowski reported Friday that the Wolves and Ricky Rubio have come to an agreement on a four-year, $55 million extension.

If there are any new interesting details we'll pass them along but this makes sense for the Wolves and it really makes sense for Rubio, since there is some doubt as to whether or not he can be a difference-maker at a competitive position in the NBA. Still, he's shown enough to be worth this type of risk, as the addition of a jump shot would make him deadly on the offensive end.
