Latest Headlines

Kobe Bryant (Achilles) said in a recent interview that he's uncertain whether he'll be ready for the Lakers' season opener.

"I’m feeling pretty good," Kobe said. "Stronger than I was. I'm ahead of [my recovery] schedule. I don’t know [whether] that means I'll start the season – I hope so." We've learned not to bet against the Black Mamba, but his status for opening night isn't likely to be determined until training camp. He has begun running on a weight-bearing treadmill, but has yet to resume basketball-related activities.

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is doubtful to face the Spurs on Friday.

His knee injury is not an issue, but now the Kings are hit with a sudden illness for their team's MVP. Cousins has eight double-doubles in a row and the Kings are going to be a mess on offense even if Rudy Gay (Achilles) plays. If he's out, it'll likely be a group effort of Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams, Carl Landry and Reggie Evans.

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) went through a full contact practice on Friday.

The Heat will not commit to his status for Sunday, but this is obviously a great sign. Wade has been out for seven games with his hamstring injury and it's led to a lot of production out of Mario Chalmers in that stretch. Wade was also at 32.4 minutes per game before the injury and that is likely to drop. His owners will want to check back on Sunday.

Coach Scott Brooks said Reggie Jackson and Russell Westbrook will get "a lot of minutes" together.

Westbrook will likely see minutes around 30, so Jackson should get a high usage in his 18 minutes or so in the second unit. Plus, it looks like Jackson will get around 10-15 minutes next to Westbrook, which puts him in the 30-minute neighborhood as well. With Kevin Durant (foot) still out, Jackson should still be a must-start guy in most formats.
Nov 28 - 2:02 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) said that he is fine, and will play Friday vs. the Suns.

Danilo only managed to play 8.7 minutes during his last outing, checking out due to soreness in his surgically repaired left knee, but his return to the lineup tonight is an encouraging sign. He's by no means a must-own player in standard leagues, but he was starting to get it going before his injury scare on Wednesday, so if you're in a deeper league and have available roster space, stashing him wouldn't be the worst idea.
Nov 28 - 1:29 PM

Head coach Steve Kerr is considering David Lee (hamstring) doubtful to play Friday or Sunday.

Lee will most likely return for one of the Warriors upcoming home games, either Tuesday vs. Orlando, or Thursday vs. New Orleans. With the Warriors currently sitting on a record of 12-2, and Draymond Green excelling as the starting power forward, there's just no need for Lee to rush a return. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation upon his return, and there are no guarantees he will take the starting job away from Green.
Nov 28 - 1:19 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

With Sefolosha out, DeMarre Carroll will get all the run he can handle and he has a favorable matchup vs. New Orleans. Carroll logged 38.7 minutes sans Thabo during his last outing, scoring 14 points (two 3-pointers), to go with three rebounds an assist, and a block, and should have similar production tonight. Think about deploying him as a low-budget play in daily leagues.
Nov 28 - 1:03 PM

Zaza Pachulia has returned to the Republic of Georgia following the death of his grandmother, and will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

We send our best wishes to Zaza and his family. His absence from the lineup tonight will translate to Larry Sanders getting all the run he can handle, and he has a favorable matchup tonight against Detroit. Get him active, and think about deploying him as a low-budget option in daily leagues.
Nov 28 - 12:56 PM

Marvin Williams (shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

If Marvin sits, Cody Zeller would draw the start at power forward, however he has an unfavorable matchup today against Draymond Green of the Warriors, and on such a busy Friday night owners in standard leagues could probably do better.
Nov 28 - 12:44 PM

Derrick Rose (hamstring) is being listed in the starting lineup, and all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go Friday vs. the Celtics.

It's all but official that Rose will start Friday, and he has a favorable matchup today vs. the Celtics, so owners can go ahead and get him in their lineups.
Nov 28 - 12:38 PM

Reggie Jackson will come off the bench on Friday with Russell Westbrook back in the starting lineup.

Jackson should still get plenty of minutes and be productive, but the days of him being a No. 1 starting fantasy point guard are probably over.
Nov 28 - 12:32 PM

Brandon Jennings will miss his third straight game on Friday with a left thumb injury.

D.J. Augustin should get all he can handle again tonight and makes for an interesting daily plug-and-play. Jennings has started shooting again, so could be nearing a return, but it won't happen on Friday.
