Gary Neal agreed to a two-year, $7 million deal with the Bucks.

Neal played behind Tony Parker and was called upon when Gregg Popovich decided to rest his star point guard. He's shot 40 percent from downtown in his career and has scored between 9.5 and 9.9 points per game in each of his three seasons in the NBA. He'll provide some depth for Milwaukee behind O.J. Mayo.

Joe Johnson (eye) left Sunday's game against the Pistons, but has since returned and is available to play.

He was poked in his left eye by Josh Smith in the third quarter of Sunday's game, and briefly headed back to the locker room with a trainer. However, he is back on the bench and he looks like he is just fine. We will let you know how he fares after the game.

Greivis Vasquez took advantage of the increased opportunity with Landry Fields (concussion) sidelined on Sunday, and put up 21 points (three 3-pointers), five assists, and four rebounds in a Raptors' win.

Vasquez has been struggling lately coming off the bench, but got things going tonight against a terrible Knicks team. The Knicks often give up big lines to opposing guards, so that can't be discounted with tonight's line. Given how inconsistent Vasquez' has been this year, we'll need to see a couple more games like this before recommending the add in standard leagues.

Kyrie Irving tied his career-high with 12 assists vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday, while adding 17 points on 8-of-13 shooting, one 3-pointer and three rebounds.

Irving committed only two turnovers in 37 minutes and improved efficiency has been a welcome boost for his fantasy value, as he's averaging career-best numbers in True Shooting (56.7 percent) and turnover rate (8.8 percent). His usage rate has predictably fallen off with LeBron James and Kevin Love in town, but that hasn't stopped Irving from producing at a top-15 level in 9-cat leagues.
Dec 21 - 7:14 PM

Jonas Valaciunas only managed to score 10 points on 2-of-6 shooting Sunday, to go with five rebounds, an assists, and zero blocks over 22 minutes of action.

Slow starts are nothing new for Valaciunas, and it's really only a matter of time until he starts to get things going. He averaged 16.8 points, 11.0 rebounds and 0.9 blocks during the month of April last year, so it would be wise to float out some buy-low offers before he starts rolling.
Dec 21 - 7:14 PM

Dion Waiters got hot during Sunday's win over the Grizzlies, finishing with 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

He never left the bench during the second half of Friday's game, but scored 13 of his points in the fourth quarter on Sunday. The Cavs have too many offensive weapons to expect this caliber of performance more than occasionally from Waiters, who hadn't even cracked top-200 fantasy value through Cleveland's first 25 games.
Dec 21 - 7:13 PM

Jon Leuer stepped into a starting role on Sunday, notching 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 30 minutes of action.

Zach Randolph was out with a swollen knee, which led to Leuer's temporary promotion, and Randolph remains questionable for Monday's game. Daily-league owners should keep a close eye on the Grizzlies' injury report, as Leuer could once again be a solid value against the Jazz on Monday.
Dec 21 - 7:09 PM

Kyle Lowry put up 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting during Sunday's win, adding nine assists, four rebounds, two 3-pointers, three steals, and four turnovers.

Lowry also shot a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe as his career-year continues. He's hitting career-highs in points (19.4) and assists (7.8) this season, and is the main reason the Raptors currently own a record of 21-6 despite not having DeMar DeRozan. Keep rolling him out there as he establishes himself as an elite point guard in the league.
Dec 21 - 7:05 PM

Carmelo Anthony played 37 minutes during Sunday's loss, scoring 28 points on 12-of-26 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, and two turnovers.

The minutes suggest that Melo's knee is healthy, but with the Knicks owning a record of 5-24, there's always going to be talk of him shutting things down. Carmelo remains an elite option while he's in uniform, but owners may want to seriously consider selling high.
Dec 21 - 6:37 PM

Jose Calderon put up 15 points and 10 assists against his former team on Sunday, while adding one 3-pointer, three rebounds, and two turnovers.

Calderon is averaging just 8.5 points, 3.9 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers per game this season over 30 minutes of action. However, his numbers have been trending up lately, and he's scored 15, 21, and 12 points in his last three outings. He remains a buy-low candidate, but with New York being the mess that they are, there are no guarantees he turns things around.
Dec 21 - 6:29 PM

Chris Bosh said that he's hopeful to suit up for Miami's Christmas day game vs. the Cavs, but he also said that worst-case he'll be out another month.

"It’s a possibility, I think," Bosh said of playing this week. "That’s me being a glass-half-full kind of guy. It’s a work in progress, man." Bosh is being pretty vague with his quotes, so all owners can do is hope that he's ready to go soon. He has made significant progress the past few days, but he still needs to work on his conditioning, as he still hasn't been able to run. Shawne Williams has slid into the starting lineup, but he can only be viewed as a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues for now.
Dec 21 - 5:59 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) has already been ruled out for Monday's game.

Cory Joseph will continue to start at PG in Parker's absence and could be a sneaky play in weekly leagues, as Parker hasn't yet targeted a return date. Hamstring injuries are notoriously easy to aggravate, which is all the more reason for San Antonio to play it safe with their All-Star guard.
