Updating a previous item, the NBA confirmed that the Rockets were fined $150,000 for unauthorized public comments on Dwight Howard during the NBA's annual moratorium.

It's a slap on the wrist for the Rockets and they're likely not very regretful since they accomplished their mission in signing Dwight. The Rockets did a number of outside-the-box things in their pitch and the specifics should be known shortly.

DeMarcus Cousins was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Thunder with a flagrant 2 foul.

After grabbing a rebound, Cousins elbowed Russell Westbrook in the head while protecting the ball. He quickly claimed that Westy flopped, but the officials weren't having it. His night finished with 18 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block.

Myles Turner struggled vs. the Magic on Monday with eight points, five rebounds and two blocks in 34 minutes on 4-of-11 shooting, and he tweaked his ankle in the process.

Turner simply had his ankle re-taped and quickly returned, but we'll put him on the injury report to be safe. He was able to play down the stretch and was moving around fine, but he couldn't generate much on the offensive end. Maybe he was fatigued after going off for a season-high 25 points on Sunday with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 32 minutes, but his owners should expect a bounce-back game with three days off until Friday's matchup vs. the Raptors.

Damian Lillard (ankle) will start the second half of Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

He had a nasty ankle turn that forced him to the locker room, but he's going to give it a go. Lillard was walking gingerly on his way back to the court for the second half, and we'll be watching him closely the rest of the evening.

Will Barton will start against the Kings on Monday.

The Nuggets are missing Paul Millsap (wrist) and Wilson Chandler (back), so Barton will join Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Kenneth Faried and Nikola Jokic in the first unit. Barton was worth owning when the Nuggets were healthy, but his owners can now expect a considerable bump in value in the short term.
Nov 20 - 9:27 PM

Wilson Chandler (sore back) will not play on Monday vs. the Kings.

There's no word on who will replace Chandler in the starting lineup, but Juancho Hernangomez and Will Barton would make the most sense. Chandler is considered day-to-day and shouldn't be dropped outside of shallow leagues.
Nov 20 - 9:06 PM

Kenneth Faried will start on Monday vs. the Kings in place of Paul Millsap (wrist).

Wilson Chandler (back) remains a game-time decision. X-rays taken on Millsap's wrist came back negative, and while we don't know how long he'll be out, it looks like Faried will the primary beneficiary in fantasy for as long as Millsap is sidelined.
Nov 20 - 8:39 PM

Danilo Gallinari (strained left glute) said that he'll be out for another 7-10 days.

This timetable isn't set in stone, but at least we have an idea of where he's at in his rehab. Wes Johnson isn't the most consistent player, but he has been stepping up for the Clippers and could have some short-term value this week.
Nov 20 - 8:14 PM

Otto Porter had an MRI on his swollen right hand, but the results were negative.

It sounds like the MRI was precautionary, and it's important to note that Porter has maintained that his status for Monday's game vs. the Bucks wasn't in doubt. Plug him into your season-long lineups, but check back after the game to see how he holds up.
Nov 20 - 6:46 PM

Tyreke Evans (right shoulder) will play Monday vs. Portland.

Aside from Saturday's seven-point stinker, Evans has been tearing it up lately, and he should be able to get things back on track tonight with a matchup against the Trail Blazers. He's been a focal point of the offense with Mike Conley (Achilles) on the sidelines, boasting a team-high 29.4 usage per nbawowy, so feel free to get him active.
Nov 20 - 6:46 PM

John Wall (knee) will return to the starting five for Monday's matchup in Milwaukee, sending Tim Frazier back to the bench.

Scott Brooks said that Wall had a "great chance" of returning to the floor tonight, so it's not all that surprising to see him out there and it looks as though his one-game absence was more precautionary than anything else with this being the second game of a back-to-back set. With Wall back in action, Bradley Beal won't see quite as many playmaking opportunities, and Frazier will likely be looking at minutes in the teens. Brooks did say he'd like to keep Wall's minutes in the low-30s tonight, but that's still plenty of time for him to offer up a robust stat line.
Nov 20 - 6:42 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hip) will remain on the sidelines for Monday's game against the Knicks.

This will be his seventh consecutive game on the sidelines, and with no reports of him ramping up his activity level at practice, we have to assume he's not close. Wes Johnson will continue to start in his absence, and he's someone to consider as a low-end streamer in deep leagues for owners seeking some steals, triples and a trickle of swats.
