Nicolas Batum led France to its first EuroBasket title with 17 points, six boards, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers on Sunday.

He's had some issues knocking down 3-pointers in the tournament, but still took eight from downtown in the easy 80-66 victory. Batum blossomed into a stud last season, posting career highs in points, boards, assists, steals, blocks, triples and free throw percentage. He's a seven-category stud and there's really no way he should make it past the middle of the second round in standard leagues.

Corey Brewer will get the start against the Spurs on Friday.

As expected, he'll join Mo Williams, Andrew Wiggins Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng against the champs. Brewer should pick up around eight minutes and could be in the mid-30s tonight while minutes should be dispersed to Muhammad, Anthony Bennett, Chase Budinger and Robbie Hummel tonight. Brewer is worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 21 - 6:49 PM

Jerryd Bayless will start on Friday night alongside Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton, Jabari Parker, and Larry Sanders.

This will be Bayless' first night as a starter for the Bucks, but he hasn't been doing much lately, scoring four, nine, and two points in his last three outings. He'll have some increased opportunity tonight with Giannis Antetokounmpo sidelined, but on such a busy night, owners in standard leagues can probably do better than Bayless.
Nov 21 - 6:43 PM

Russell Westbrook (hand) will go through some non-contact portions of Saturday's practice, and he'll be re-evaluated on Nov. 29.

Westbrook has been progressing well, without any setbacks, and going through non-contact portions of practice will be the next step. Westbrook's initial timetable has him returning Dec. 2 vs. the Pelicans at the earliest, but we'll have a more firm date after he is re-evaluated. Stay tuned.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) will not play against the Raptors on Friday.

Well, it looks like he had some discomfort in his ankle. Antetokounmpo had an ugly ankle roll when he landed on Brandon Knight's foot on Wednesday, but he did play through it. He could miss more time and fantasy owners will want to put him on their benches. Jerryd Bayless will start, but the bigger winners in fantasy may be Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton.
Nov 21 - 6:39 PM

Kevin Durant (foot) will go through a non-contact practice on Saturday.

He is getting closer to a return and has gone through some shooting drill. Durant is still a couple weeks off his original prognosis, but it's great to see he hasn't fallen behind. If you drafted him in the first round, this is all you can ask for from the best player in fantasy hoops for each of the last five seasons.
Nov 21 - 6:34 PM

Andre Roberson will start on Friday, sending Jeremy Lamb to the bench.

Roberson is a defensive specialist for the Thunder, so he doesn't bring too much to the box score. He's averaging 6.0 points and 6.0 rebounds with the starting unit, and his minutes will be capped at 20 tonight, so he doesn't really belong on an active roster outside of extremely deep leagues.
Nov 21 - 6:23 PM

DeMarre Carroll (groin) will be in the starting lineup against the Pistons.

He returns from a four-game absence and has been practicing for the past couple days. Carroll should be close to his 33.8 minutes per game and he'll look to build off his 1.8 triples per game on the season. He's not a must-start guy, but he should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 21 - 6:03 PM

Evan Fournier (heel) will return to the starting lineup on Friday, sending Willie Green to the bench.

Fournier has been impressive this season, averaging 17.3 points and 2.3 three-pointers per game, however, he does have a difficult matchup tonight vs. the Hornets. Willie Green can be cut in all formats with the return of Fournier.
Nov 21 - 5:46 PM

Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) will not play against the Hornets on Friday.

He was going to a game-time decision, but he must not have felt well after shootaround. O'Quinn could miss more games and he's been out since the opener. Andrew Nicholson will stay in the rotation tonight, but is not a fantasy option.
Nov 21 - 5:45 PM

Tony Wroten will start at shooting guard against the Suns on Friday next to Michael Carter-Williams, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims.

Coach Brett Brown has flip-flopped all year on what he wants to do with Wroten. Wroten and Michael Carter-Williams have been turning over the ball a lot and their second unit is going to miss playmakers -- Wroten will still get a lot of run with the second unit during the game. His usage rate has been fairly high next to MCW so far anyway, so he should have similar value. Considering his inefficiency and turnover issues, he hasn't turned in top-200 value.
Nov 21 - 5:26 PM

Derrick Rose (hamstring), Pau Gasol (calf) and Kirk Hinrich (chest) are out against the Blazers on Friday.

Rose has been ruled out quickly for each of the last three games and he could miss more time. The Bulls are likely going to manage his minutes upon his return, so fantasy owners shouldn't buy low unless it's at an extremely discount. Aaron Brooks is going to be very busy tonight.
