The Pistons are hopeful that Rodney Stuckey (thumb) will be ready for the opener.

He's going to be reevaluated in two weeks, so it's certainly possible that everything goes well in that appointment. Stuckey is going to have a splint on his finger for those two weeks and since it's just a fracture to the tip of his thumb, it might not take too long to heal. As for draft purposes, it's not a bad idea to take a flier on Stuckey late. If he's not ready, he can just be cut since the investment figures to be small.

Draymond Green turned his left ankle and went to the locker room in the third quarter on Thursday.

Shelvin Mack drove to the basket and Stephen Curry backed into Green. The contact caused Green to roll his ankle on the floor and he was on the court for about 30 seconds. After walking it off for about 20 seconds, Green walked slowly to the locker room under his own power. The injury didn't look bad, but he may be done for the night. This is the same left ankle that cost him time earlier this season.

DeMarre Carroll played 33 minutes and had 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on 3-of-7 shooting in Thursday's 124-110 win over Minnesota.

Carroll is scheduled to miss Friday's game against the Celtics for a rest. He's not having a great season, but once he finally gets up to speed he should be a solid fantasy option. Now looks like a good time to buy low on DC. With Carroll out on Friday, look for Terrence Ross, Norman Powell and Patrick Patterson to both step up in his absence tomorrow.
Dec 8 - 9:56 PM

Kenneth Faried was a DNP-CD against the Wizards on Thursday.

From starter on Wednesday to out of the rotation on Thursday. Faried has been in coach Mike Malone's doghouse before, but this time it may be for a decent amount of time. The odds of Faried getting traded may be at an all-time high with guys like Juancho Hernangomez currently ahead of him. He may be back in the rotation at some point, but his short-term outlook looks bleak. He's a drop candidate in standard leagues.
Dec 8 - 9:43 PM

Langston Galloway received five stitches above his eye and has returned.

He was cut open after Joel Embiid accidentally shouldered him. Galloway should be ready to roll tonight.
Dec 8 - 9:07 PM

Tony Parker (left knee) will start against the Bulls on Thursday night.

This is a mild surprise for Parker, who missed Tuesday's action. Parker likely won't play many minutes in his return to the lineup and he'l certainly miss more games going forward.
Dec 8 - 8:21 PM

Evan Turner will start for Moe Harkless (ankle) against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

Well, just when it made sense for Allen Crabbe to start, coach Terry Stotts will start Turner. Both Turner and Crabbe should benefit tonight.
Dec 8 - 7:52 PM

Marc Gasol (groin) will start against the Blazers on Thursday night.

He gets an outstanding matchup tonight against a sub-par Blazers interior defense and rebounding. Gasol may have a slight hit in minutes, so he's a risky DFS play even when it's not on a back-to-back set. He's an obvious start in season long leagues.
Dec 8 - 7:45 PM

Shelvin Mack, Dante Exum, Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert are likely starting on Thursday against the Warriors.

The Jazz are really, really shorthanded, especially on the wings. Expect to see a Joe Johnson throwback game while Mack should get plenty of shots.
Dec 8 - 7:32 PM

Allen Crabbe is listed as the starter for Thursday against the Grizzlies.

Unless coach Terry Stotts goes into one of his mad scientist modes, this should stick. Crabbe has played very well lately and turned in a gem with 17 points on Monday and a solid 14-point game on Wednesday. Expect him to get 30-35 minutes tonight while Evan Turner backs him up.
Dec 8 - 7:26 PM

The Pelicans will start Tim Frazier, Buddy Hield, Solomon Hill, Anthony Davis and Alexis Ajinca against the 76ers on Thursday.

With Jrue Holiday (toe) out, expect to see plenty of Frazier tonight. Langston Galloway still has plenty of upside, especially if he gets hot. Frazier is a borderline property in standard leagues.
Dec 8 - 7:19 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

His ankle is still swollen and his pre-game workout did not go well. Harkless suffered the injury on Wednesday and didn't play in the final 31 seconds. For tonight, expect to see Allen Crabbe in the starting lineup while Evan Turner gets a bump. Maybe coach Terry Stotts goes with a little Jake Layman to boost the bench, too.
