Tony Parker scored 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting on Sunday, propelling France past Ukraine and into the second round of EuroBasket 2013.

Nicolas Batum scored eight points and Boris Diaw added 15 points for France, but Ukraine's biggest problem was Parker, who scored nine straight points to seal the victory in the fourth quarter. It's safe to say that he's fully recovered after hurting his knee earlier in the tournament.

Anthony Morrow was OKC's best bench player on Sunday, contributing 16 points and a career-high-tying 12 rebounds in a narrow loss to the visiting Warriors.

Morrow played 33 minutes and he's worth fantasy owners' attention until Kevin Durant returns to action. He's scored double-digit points in six of the past eight games, he's a deadly 3-point shooter, and he's recorded at least one steal in six straight games. Just be ready to cut him loose if the return of Durant and Perry Jones slashes into his playing time.

Andrew Bogut (orbital contusion) is questionable to play vs. the Heat on Tuesday, but a CT scan on his head was negative.

Bogut scored two points in eight minutes before leaving Sunday's game with the injury, but the good news is that he avoided any fractures or structural damage. If he can't suit up on Monday, Marreese Speights would be a terrific fill-in start vs. Miami's lenient frontcourt.

Marc Gasol dominated the Clippers on Sunday, racking up 30 points (13-of-18 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 12 rebounds and two blocks in a relatively easy home victory.

The Clips have the second-worst rebounding rate in the NBA and the Grizzlies' vaunted frontcourt abused them all night long, led by Gasol's phenomenal performance. He only handed out one assist tonight, but fantasy owners can live with that since it was a result of him looking for his own shot early and often. He's established himself as a second-round fantasy value at this early juncture of the season.

Al Jefferson had 22 points, a season-high 12 rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers in 34 minutes vs. Miami on Sunday, but he missed a last-second tip-in that could have won the game.

Big Al's rebounding is way down this season, thanks largely to Lance Stephenson's impact, but he's now cracked double-digits in two straight contests. Tonight's performance should be viewed in context however, as the Heat rank 28th in the NBA in rebound differential and they're routinely torched by opposing centers.
Nov 23 - 8:47 PM

Luol Deng erupted for a game-high 26 points with eight rebounds, three assists, one block and zero assists on Sunday, making 10-of-14 shots with two 3-pointers.

He struggled with a wrist injury over the past week but it's clearly no longer an issue, as he torched Gerald Henderson and the Hornets in 38 minutes tonight. This is his second offensive eruption of the season but it should be noted that Dwyane Wade and Norris Cole were both sidelined, which thrust Deng into a bigger role.
Nov 23 - 8:44 PM

Mario Chalmers continued to shine in a lead role on Sunday, posting 20 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes vs. the Hornets.

Kemba Walker's defense is porous and Chalmers wisely attacked the Charlotte defense all night long, resulting in a 9-of-10 mark at the FT line. The return of Dwyane Wade (hamstring) and Norris Cole (finger) will inevitably cut into Chalmers' production, but he's playing too well to drop off very much. In four starts this year he's averaged 19.3 points, 1.3 triples, 2.8 boards, 5.3 assists and 1.8 steals, while making 55.3 percent of his shots. Nasty.
Nov 23 - 8:43 PM

Carlos Boozer (shoulder) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

He was listed as probable after missing Saturday's practice, was downgraded to questionable on Sunday afternoon, and ultimately ruled out an hour before tip-off. Ed Davis will get the start at PF in his absence, which should shore up the Lakers' leaky interior defense, and he's worth spot-starting as long as Boozer is sidelined.
Nov 23 - 8:12 PM

Leandro Barbosa suffered a sprained right knee during Sunday's game, and he will not return.

Barbosa didn't immediately leave the game, staying in to shoot free throws and play a few possessions, but he was ruled out upon further examination. Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala should get more playing time in his absence, but fantasy owners should consider him questionable to play Tuesday.
Nov 23 - 8:06 PM

Chris Andersen went down during the Heat-Hornets game with a sprained right ankle, and he will not return.

Andersen limped his way to the locker room and the injury looked ugly enough that it's unsurprising to see him ruled out for the night. If he misses an extended period of time, his minutes will be split up between Chris Bosh, Shawne Williams, Josh McRoberts and Udonis Haslem.
Nov 23 - 6:44 PM

Tony Allen (illness) will return to the starting lineup on Sunday, sending Tayshaun Prince to the bench.

Allen can be viewed as a steals-specialist as he doesn't contribute much else to the stat sheet, but he does have a favorable matchup today against the Clippers. Get him active if you've got him.
Nov 23 - 5:58 PM

David Lee (hamstring) is targeting a return for Friday vs. the Hornets, or Saturday vs. the Pistons.

It's unclear if Lee would return as a starter or a reserve, but he'd likely be on a minutes restriction during his first couple of games, and given Draymond Green's impressive play it seems likely Lee would come off the bench initially. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, so stay tuned for more updates as we draw closer to Friday's tip.
