New Orleans has shown strong interest in acquiring Omer Asik in exchange for Ryan Anderson.

Anderson seemed like he was untouchable a few days ago with the deal involving the Kings and Tyreke Evans, so it's a little surprising to see that they'd look to deal him for Asik. Anderson led the NBA in 3-pointers in 2011-12 and was second last year behind Stephen Curry, so he would help create more space for Dwight Howard and James Harden to operate. The Pelicans could really use a center and Asik would have a similar role as last year.

Patrick Beverley left during the fourth quarter of Saturday's game with an apparent leg injury, as he collided with the Mavericks' bench while chasing a loose ball.

Beverley was on fire prior to his exit, scoring 20 points with a career-high six 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist and two steals in 31 minutes. Isaiah Canaan has proven to be a capable backup PG and he'll take the reins if Beverley can't play vs. the Knicks on Monday.

Eric Gordon exited Saturday's game with a left shoulder injury after getting caught up going around a screen.

We'll wait for an update before speculating on the severity, but Gordon's injury history speaks for itself. Guys like Austin Rivers and Jimmer Fredette would be thrust into bigger roles if Gordon misses any time, though coach Monty Williams could also shift Tyreke Evans to SG and move John Salmons or Luke Babbitt into the SF job. Stay tuned.

Nene started Saturday's game but only played six minutes before being ruled out with plantar fasciitis.

Uh oh. Nene's 2012-13 season was spoiled by a never-ending bout of plantar fasciitis, so this is an ominous development just three weeks into the season. Kris Humphries is the most likely player to start at PF if Nene misses any time, while DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden could find themselves back in the frontcourt rotation. Fantasy owners should consider Nene day-to-day for now, while bracing themselves for DNPs.

Rodney Stuckey sprained his left wrist after tripping over a photographer on Saturday, and he will not return.

Stuckey is already struggling with his conditioning after missing time due to a foot injury, and we can only hope that this injury doesn't cost him any more time. X-rays were negative and we're considering him questionable for Monday's road game in Dallas -- with C.J. Watson (foot) and George Hill (ankle) already ruled out, Donald Sloan may need to once again log 40+ minutes if Stuckey doesn't suit up.

Marco Belinelli (groin) will make a surprise start for the Spurs on Saturday, sending Danny Green to the bench.

Belinelli wasn't even certain to play and this start comes out of nowhere, especially since Green has been playing very well lately and San Antonio doesn't have a healthy backup PG. This will likely be a one-game move from Gregg Popovich, so don't overreact to the unusual lineup.

Otto Porter will not play on Saturday night due to a left hamstring tightness.

He actually had some major hamstring issues in 2013 summer league, but that was to his right hamstring. Paul Pierce will play a little more while the Wizards could also use Bradley Beal at small forward off the bench as well.

Bradley Beal is coming off the bench again on Saturday against the Bucks.

Coach Randy Wittman does not want to throw Beal out there in the starting lineup, but he should still get plenty of minutes. Perhaps he didn't want to tweak his rotation in a back-to-back because it worked for him. Regardless, start Beal in all leagues.
Nov 22 - 8:15 PM

Anthony Bennett will start for the Wolves on Saturday, sending Shabazz Muhammad to the bench.

Bennett scored 20 points with three rebounds in 32 minutes of action on Friday and coach Flip Saunders rewarded him with this start, though it's unlikely to last long with Thaddeus Young (personal) targeting a return on Wednesday. Fantasy owners should feel confident deploying Bennett for Saturday's matchup vs. the Kings.

Omer Asik (back) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

He had an aggravation in Friday warmups and didn't have much of a chance to play tonight. With Asik out, Alexis Ajinca will get some extra playing time, but he's not a great fantasy option. Asik could miss more time and he's not a must-own player.
Nov 22 - 7:36 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) will play against the Nets on Saturday.

He said he didn't have an aggravation on Friday and just stayed on the exercise bike to stay warm. Belinelli is unlikely to get more than minutes in the teens tonight, so he's not worth starting in most leagues.
Nov 22 - 7:33 PM

Roy Hibbert limped into the Pacers locker room on Saturday after spraining his left ankle, but he will return.

Ian Mahinmi immediately took Hibbert's place in the lineup but the injury didn't look too bad, so hopefully this won't cause any lasting problems. His fantasy owners can take a deep breath.
