Brad Stevens says Rajon Rondo (knee) and Jared Sullinger (back) are progressing well.

Rondo and Sullinger have both publicly stated they're doing well in their recoveries. Sullinger figures to be ready sooner than Rondo, who the Celtics hope to have back in time to start the regular season. Stevens also said he's spoken to his point guard on the phone and via text numerous times since their only face-to-face meeting after Stevens was hired. At least to start, the Stevens-Rondo relationship seems to be all aces.

Mike Muscala is listed as the starter at power forward against the Raptors on Saturday.

After the Hawks were crushed in the first half on Friday with Thabo Sefolosha at the four, Muscala is the favorite to start. He was awful with no points in his last start on Wednesday, but he should have a great chance to perform tonight.
Dec 3 - 5:30 PM

Isaiah Whitehead, Sean Kilpatrick, Bojan Bogdanovic, Anthony Bennett and Brook Lopez will start against the Bucks on Saturday.

The Nets are going to keep Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's minutes in check, so they'll start Kilpatrick for another game. With Trevor Booker out, the Nets defense will have its hands full tonight against the lengthy Bucks squad. Kilpatrick is worth owning in standard leagues right now.

Anthony Bennett is listed as the starter against the Bucks on Saturday with Trevor Booker (illness) out.

It makes some sense because the Nets are really thin at power forward. Bennett hasn't been in the rotation, but he may get minutes over 20 in the first unit. Justin Hamilton figures to get several minutes off the bench behind Bennett and Lopez, so he's worth a look in DFS as well.
Dec 3 - 4:13 PM

Trevor Booker (illness) will not play against the Bucks on Saturday.

The Nets are also without Chris McCullough for this one, so they'll only have Anthony Bennett, Luis Scola and Justin Hamilton as their bench bigs. Booker was playing extremely well and played 31.2 minutes per game in the last five, so there's a big hole to fill tonight. Justin Hamilton figures to benefit most regardless of who coach Kenny Atkinson starts next to Brook Lopez.
Dec 3 - 3:38 PM

Luke Babbitt (hip) is not expected to play and is only available for emergency situations against the Blazers on Saturday.

In other words, he's out. Babbitt could miss two weeks due to his hip injury from Thursday night. He also may not have many minutes available once he's back with James Johnson outplaying him and it's possible Justise Winslow (wrist) is back. For tonight, Johnson, Derrick Williams and Wayne Ellington should get some additional run.
Dec 3 - 2:43 PM

George Hill (left big toe) will not play in Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Hill is enjoying a phenomenal statistical season but has been bitten by the injury bug of late. He missed eight straight games in November due to a thumb issue and is now dealing with a toe injury. Saturday will be the second game missed due to the toe. Dante Exum started at point guard for Utah in their previous game, but he played less than 19 minutes and scored just five points on 1-of-6 shooting. Shelvin Mack ended up playing 33 minutes, finishing with 11 points, five assists and five rebounds. If you are looking to roll the dice on a DFS dart throw or a streamer, Mack would be the preferred option.
Dec 3 - 1:01 PM

Will Barton, Danilo Gallinari, and Darrell Arthur are listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Utah.

Barton had missed 12 of the Nuggets previous 15 games, but looked great in his return to the Denver lineup on Friday night. He finished with 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes. Better yet, he seems to have avoided aggravating his ankle injury. Barton should be locked and loaded in fantasy lineups going forward.
Dec 3 - 12:58 PM

Nikola Jokic (left wrist sprain) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

Jokic initially suffered what was believed to be a minor wrist injury on Wedneday. However, it has now cost him two straight games, which stings because Jokic was finally starting to snap out of his season-long slump. Starters Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic should see more time on Saturday. Darrell Arthur could also see a few extra minutes off the bench, as the Nuggets are playing on the second night of a back-to-back.
Dec 3 - 12:46 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said on Saturday that Dirk Nowitzki (right Achilles strain) is going to be out "a while."

Carlisle added that Dirk should be deemed "out indefinitely." This is not all that surprising, considering that the Mavs had already announced Dirk would miss at least the Mavs next two games. The immediate future is very murky for Dirk. He has missed 13 of the Mavs last 15 games as his Achilles has been unable to heal properly. Considering the Mavs are currently disincentivized to win, as each loss means a greater likelihood of securing a top lottery pick, expect Dallas to be extremely cautious with Dirk and only play him when he is close to 100%
Dec 3 - 12:37 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle told reporters that Seth Curry (right knee sprain) will not play Saturday vs. Chicago.

This will be the second game Curry has missed since spraining his knee Wednesday night. Starter Deron Williams may play more than 30 minutes on Saturday for the first time since November 4th. Devin Harris and Jonathan Gibson could also see an uptick in minutes off the Mavs bench.
Dec 3 - 12:30 PM

Courtney Lee says his ankle sprain is improving and he hasn't ruled out returning to the lineup Sunday against the Kings.

"It feels a lot better than it did when I initially twisted it," Lee said Friday. "I wasn't able to walk that night but I was able to move around (Friday)." If Lee can't play Sunday, look for Justin Holiday to start in his place. Holiday played well in his start on Friday, tallying 13 points, seven rebounds, three steals, two 3-pointers and one block. He will be a cheap DFS option on Sunday if Lee doesn't play.
