Latest Headlines

Derrick Favors reached an agreement on a four-year, $49 million-plus extension with the Utah Jazz, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The Jazz are now completely committed to Favors as their big man, as they should be. He keeps getting better through his career and is having a phenomenal preseason. His contract has incentives that could get the deal over $50 million, and he's probably going to hit some of them. A breakout season seems likely for the 22-year-old big man.

Shelvin Mack will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

Mack will slide into the starting five with Evan Fournier (ankle) unavailable and he'll be joined by Elfrid Payton, Jonathon Simmons, Mario Hezonja and Nikola Vucevic. In two starts this season, Mack has compiled averages of 4.5 points, 8.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game on 21.4% shooting, so he's not much more than a low-end punt play in daily leagues.

Jonathan Isaac (ankle) will play Sunday vs. the Pistons.

Isaac hasn't played since Nov. 11, so he'll be limited to just 15 minutes today, thus limiting his appeal in daily leagues. That said, if he's able to get fully up to speed prior to the return of Aaron Gordon (ankle) and Evan Fournier (ankle), he could be looking at a decent amount of minutes in Orlando, so he's definitely on the radar in deep leagues for his upside in the hustle stats.

James Johnson has been diagnosed with right ankle bursitis and he's expected to miss the next 7-10 days of action.

Johnson will not be traveling with the team on their upcoming two-game road trip, and this timetable will have him out of commission for the next 4-6 games. With Johnson unavailable, guys like Josh Richardson, Dion Waiters, Wayne Ellington and Jordan Mickey will be asked to pick up the slack, and both Ellington and Mickey could be worth an add in deep leagues.
Dec 17 - 2:37 PM

Avery Bradley (groin) will be a game-time call for Sunday's game against the Magic.

Bradley sat out Friday's game with this groin issue, and there haven't been any reports of him getting through practice, so he appears to be closer to doubtful than anything else. If he is forced to watch from the sidelines, Luke Kennard would be in line for another start and there would be more minutes available for Langston Galloway. Stay tuned.
Dec 17 - 2:23 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Thunder.

He tweaked his ankle on Friday and is now in danger of missing Monday's game, but we'll have a better idea on his playing status after shootaround. If he's out, Jamal Murray will pick up some extra minutes and Will Barton could see some increased opportunity as a creator in the second unit. Stay tuned.

Serge Ibaka will not play on Sunday vs. the Kings due to a sore left knee.

He's missed one game with left knee soreness this season and one for right knee soreness as well, so maybe the Raptors are just giving him the night off against the tanking Kings. It also helps that the Kings are resting Zach Randolph. With Ibaka out, Pascal Siakam is the favorite to start and is averaging 14.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.3 steals in four previous starts this season.
Dec 17 - 1:50 PM

Trevor Booker (ankle) will miss Monday's game vs. the Bulls and Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

Booker will be re-evaluated in 5-7 days, so it sounds likely that he could miss Thursday's game vs. Toronto as well. With Joel Embiid resting on Monday, Richaun Holmes is worth a long look as a streaming option. Dario Saric and Amir Johnson could see a bump in minutes as well.
Dec 17 - 1:31 PM

Joel Embiid (rest, back tightness) will not play on Monday vs. the Bulls.

He played a career-high 49 minutes in Friday's triple overtime rest and joked that he would need a year of rest, but he's expected to play on Tuesday vs. the Kings. With Embiid and Trevor Booker (ankle) out on Monday, Richaun Holmes will be a solid streaming option and we should see more of Dario Saric and Amir Johnson.
Dec 17 - 1:28 PM

Zach Randolph is resting against the Raptors on Sunday.

The Kings have been off for a couple days and this isn't a back-to-back set, but this is what tanking teams do. The offense has been flowing through Randolph lately with 20.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.4 steals in his last five games, so it makes sense to hold onto him for now even though his rest-of-season outlook isn't great. With Z-Bo out, Skal Labissiere, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos should all get a bump, but WCS is the most reliable fantasy option by far.
Dec 17 - 11:35 AM

De'Aaron Fox (right quad contusion) will not play on Sunday vs. the Raptors.

The rookie was considered doubtful, so hopefully his fantasy owners already had a backup plan in place. For now, it's unclear if Fox will be back for Tuesday's game vs. Philly. George Hill will likely slide back over to PG and we should see a lot of both Hill and Frank Mason this evening which makes them solid streaming options.
Dec 17 - 11:33 AM

Hassan Whiteside (knee) won't travel for Miami's two-game road trip this week.

This means he won't play against Atlanta on Monday or Boston on Wednesday. That would make 11 straight games on the sidelines for the big man and there's still no timetable for his return. "He is feeling better but he’s not quite ready to play," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. The earliest we will see Whiteside back is on Friday vs. Dallas, but in the meantime, Kelly Olynyk, Bam Adebayo and Jordan Mickey will hold down the fort with James Johnson (ankle) and Justise Winslow (knee) also banged up.
