Thunder sign first-round pick Andre Roberson.

Roberson was the second of OKC's first-round selections, which the Thunder acquired through multiple draft-day trades. Roberson has no fantasy value this season and may end up in the D-League.

Anthony Davis (right foot/ankle) reportedly had X-rays taken after Sunday's game in Oklahoma City, though Davis denied the report.

ESPN's Justin Verrier reports, "Davis had an X-ray taken after the game in Oklahoma City, according to league sources. Davis denied the account, but the Pelicans forward received treatment and [had] a black wrap on his right foot at his locker before speaking to the media. Davis ... appeared to be walking without a hobble in the locker room." He played 43 minutes on Sunday and did appear to be limping on certain possessions, though he never left the game. We're adding him to the injury report, and in the absence of an update owners should consider him questionable for Monday's home game.
Dec 4 - 10:41 PM

Kristaps Porzingis posted 15 points, 14 rebounds, four blocks and two assists on Sunday, going 6-of-18 from the field with one 3-pointer.

Porzingis could have had a monster line if he shot better from the field, but his fantasy owners can't complain with tonight's block-laden double-double. He's a second-round value in most fantasy formats, and has been averaging 34.2 minutes despite ranking third in the NBA in fouls per game.
Dec 4 - 10:28 PM

DeMarcus Cousins went 9-of-30 from the field and 14-of-16 from the line on Sunday, finishing with 36 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, three blocks, one steal and just two turnovers in 43 minutes.

Cousins had a few 3-point attempts blocked late in the game but he still finished 4-of-10 beyond the arc. He's averaging a career-high 1.7 triples on 38.4 percent shooting, and at this point he's basically matchup-proof. One negative tonight is that he picked up another technical foul, giving him six techs in Sacramento's first 20 games.
Dec 4 - 10:25 PM

Anthony Davis piled up 37 points (14-of-32 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs) with 15 rebounds, four blocks, two steals and two assists on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to avoid a road loss to the Thunder.

Davis was simply unstoppable for stretches tonight, but he got negligible help from his teammates. His offensive exploits shouldn't obscure the fact that he ranks first in blocks (2.7), fourth in defensive rebounds (9.1), and is holding opponents to 4.4 percent below their typical shooting averages against him. Expect another monster effort vs. the visiting Grizzlies on Monday.
Dec 4 - 9:50 PM

Buddy Hield scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting on Sunday, making four 3-pointers with four rebounds and one assist in just 15 minutes.

Hield shot at least three airballs but they didn't rattle his confidence in front of an appreciative OKC audience (he played for the University of Oklahoma). The Pelicans' lottery pick was even instrumental in a too-little, too-late comeback in the fourth quarter. He hadn't scored double-digit points since Nov. 12, however, and we'll need to see him do this a few more times before recommending him in re-draft leagues.
Dec 4 - 9:49 PM

Tim Frazier shifted to a bench role vs. the Thunder on Sunday, where he went scoreless on 0-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 16 minutes.

Frazier started the Pelicans' previous game alongside Jrue Holiday, but that small backcourt didn't last long. He hasn't scored double-digit points in any of the past four games and the impending return of Tyreke Evans won't help matters, so Frazier's owners should at least be keeping an eye on potential waiver-wire additions.
Dec 4 - 9:47 PM

Russell Westbrook finished Sunday's win, the Thunder's fifth straight, with 28 points, 17 rebounds, 12 assists and 10 turnovers in 38 minutes.

In a clash between the league's top two scorers, Westbrook and Anthony Davis, it was Westy who came out on top. In your daily Westbrook-in-history update, he's now the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to have five consecutive triple-doubles. He came in averaging 31.2 points, 11.3 assists and 10.5 boards, of course, and nothing is surprising at this point.
Dec 4 - 9:43 PM

Serge Ibaka filled up the boxscore on Sunday with 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and four blocked shots.

Ibaka got off to a slow start this season but he's coming on strong in Orlando's past dozen games, averaging 16.1 points, 7.6 boards, 2.3 blocks, 1.5 triples and 1.0 assists, on 50.0 percent FGs and 87.5 percent FTs. That's good for top-30 value and he shows no signs of slowing down.
Dec 4 - 8:39 PM

Reggie Jackson (knee, thumb) looked sharp in his season debut on Sunday, posting 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with four assists in just 23 minutes as a starter.

The Pistons were limiting Jackson to around five minutes per quarter, a number that should slowly creep up in the coming weeks. He's obviously a must-own player now that he's back on the court, and he looked good enough tonight to activate in nearly all lineups. If you were relying on Ish Smith for assists this season, it's time to start monitoring the waiver wire for a promising pickup.
Dec 4 - 8:34 PM

Steven Adams will not return on Sunday after spraining his left ankle in the first quarter.

Adams dealt with a sprained right ankle earlier this season, so at least it's not a related injury. His absence means plenty of minutes for Enes Kanter on Sunday, and plenty of problems for OKC's defense vs. Anthony Davis. The Thunder have a quick turnaround vs. the Hawks on Monday, and owners should consider Adams questionable until further notice.
Dec 4 - 7:54 PM

Paul George (ankle) and C.J. Miles (knee) will both play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

The Pacers have a clean injury report tonight, which means that Kevin Seraphin (knee) is also available to play after an extended absence. It's obviously safe to fire up George in all formats, and Miles is a sneaky pickup given how well he played to start the season.
