Andre Drummond was impressive yet again on Thursday, making 8-of-11 from the field for 21 points with 11 boards and one block in 28 minutes.

It's getting a little old how dominant Drummond looks these days. He scored 14 points in the first seven minutes of action and continues to look impossible to cover around the rim. Drummond just turned 20 this past summer and he's shaping up to be one of the best young centers in just his second season.

Raymond Felton will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

Jan 24 - 7:06 PM

David Lee will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, sending Dewayne Dedmon back to the bench.

The Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard (hand), Tony Parker (foot) and Pau Gasol (hand) tonight, so it makes sense to bring Lee back into the starting five to help infuse some offense into the first unit. Dejounte Murray, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and LaMarcus Aldridge will join Lee in the starting five for tonight's game.

Jahlil Okafor (knee) is unlikely to play Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

Keith Pompey reported that if Okafor couldn't give it a go, Nerlens Noel would start, and while we haven't officially had a report ruling out Okafor, Noel is starting today. Okafor was limited at shootaround and deemed questionable, and his status was never updated after that, so we don't expect to see him out there. With Joel Embiid (knee) also on the sidelines tonight, Nerlens Noel should be able to see his minutes in the 30s.
Jan 24 - 6:57 PM

Jodie Meeks underwent surgery to correct his dislocated right thumb on Tuesday, and he will be out indefinitely.

Meeks just hasn't been able to stay healthy over the past couple years, and it's looking like this will be another lost season for the 29-year-old veteran. With Evan Fournier (heel) and D.J. Augustin also out of commission, Elfrid Payton will be forced into heavy minutes and Mario Hezonja will have the opportunity to get into the rotation. Meeks belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 24 - 6:53 PM

Nerlens Noel will start at center for Tuesday's game against the Clippers with Joel Embiid (knee) unavailable.

It sounds like Jahlil Okafor (knee) will also be unavailable tonight, so Noel could be logging major minutes, and he's someone to consider throwing out there in daily leagues. Richaun Holmes could also see some extended run with the second unit, but Noel is the guy you want to target in fantasy hoops.
Jan 24 - 6:48 PM

Jared Sullinger will start vs. San Antonio on Tuesday, bumping Lucas Noguiera to the bench.

Sullinger has played in just three games after missing the first 41 games of the season, and is averaging 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds over those three games. Despite being named the starter on Tuesday he's still not a very attractive add, especially with Patrick Patterson (knee) returning to the lineup on Tuesday night. Lucas Noguiera is averaging 4.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in 19.0 minutes per game in the 29 contests he has appeared in off the bench this season.
Jan 24 - 6:33 PM

Norman Powell will move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, with DeMar DeRozan (ankle) unavailable.

Toronto will go with a new starting group today featuring Kyle Lowry, Powell, DeMarre Carroll, Jared Sullinger and Jonas Valanciunas with Lucas Nogueira heading back to the bench. Powell could see some increased opportunity on the offensive end tonight sans DeRozan, but with a tough matchup against San Antonio, he's a risky play in daily leagues. Lowry and JV figure to do the heavy lifting on offense sans DeRozan, and Terrence Ross could see some extended minutes off the bench.
Jan 24 - 6:32 PM

Updating a previous report, Kawhi Leonard (hand) has now been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

With Leonard, Pau Gasol (hand) and Tony Parker (foot) all set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines, we should see LaMarcus Aldridge and David Lee tasked with some increased responsibilities on offense. Kyle Anderson will be drawing another start tonight, and he'll look to build off Monday's 14-point outing, putting him on the radar in DFS. Leonard's hand injury seems relatively minor, so there's a chance he could be back in action Friday in New Orleans.
Jan 24 - 6:21 PM

Manu Ginobili (back) is expected to play Tuesday vs. Toronto.

Ginobili was rested on the front end of a back-to-back set on Monday, but he should both be back in action tonight without a minutes restriction. Tony Parker (foot) is out tonight, so Ginobili might be able to see his minutes in the mid-20s, although he's that's still not enough time to consider him an attractive option in most settings.
Jan 24 - 5:48 PM

Blake Griffin (knee) will start Tuesday's game vs. the 76ers, but will be on a minutes restriction.

Heeeeee's back. Coach Doc Rivers did say that Blake will have his minutes capped, but it has not been publicly disclosed exactly how much he will play. It should be noted that Griffin (once fully healthy) will see his scoring opportunities and usage rate increase with Chris Paul (thumb) sidelined until next month. Sam Amick of USA Today notes: "Back in early 2014, Paul suffered a right shoulder injury that sidelined him for five weeks. Griffin played some of the best basketball of his career during that 18-game stretch, leading the team in scoring (27.5 points per game on 55.4% shooting) while serving as a pivotal playmaker (4.4 assists per)"
Jan 24 - 5:41 PM

Jerian Grant (illness) will start Tuesday vs. the Magic.

It was announced this morning after shootaround that Grant would replace Michael Carter-Williams in the starting lineup. MCW had been struggling (scoring a total of five points in Chicago's two previous games), but Grant had been a DNP-CD in three of the Bulls last five games. This is proof of just how far Rajon Rondo has fallen in the eyes of the Chicago coaches. Despite being healthy, Rondo has now been passed over by two less accomplished point guards. It will be interesting to see whether Rondo or MCW see the majority of minutes backing up Grant.
