Larry Sanders complained about his limited playing time after being benched in the fourth quarter of Saturday's loss to the Raptors.

"Last year I finished so many games. I feel like that's when I lock in the most," Sanders said. "But I haven't been able to get in the game to finish. That carries over to the next game. When you sit the last three quarters of each game, I can't have no carryover. And it’s hard for me. I'm still a young player." He's averaging a mere 2.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in 17.3 minutes per game under new coach Larry Drew, who is giving plenty of minutes to Zaza Pachulia and has deployed small lineups down the stretch.

Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Jonas Jerebko and Derrick Favors will start against the Magic on Saturday.

That means Rodney Hood moves back to the bench just like he was before Rubio missed Friday. Hood is still taking a ton of shots off the bench and he'll probably close this game out if the game is close. The production is there and he likely just needs to stay healthy.

Luc Mbah a Moute (illness) is available for Saturday against the Grizzlies.

He is expected to have a limit after he missed the last game on Thursday. Mbah a Moute is probably going to lose playing time now that Chris Paul is back.
Nov 18 - 6:45 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (knee) will be available for Saturday against the Magic.

We still don't know the starting lineup or if Sefolosha will be limited after missing Friday. Jonas Jerebko is likely going to lose minutes.
Nov 18 - 6:41 PM

Chandler Parsons will start on Saturday night and James Ennis will move to the bench.

Parsons will join Mario Chalmers, Dillon Brooks, JaMychal Green and Marc Gasol in the first unit. Parsons has played a lot of power forward, but coach David Fizdale will shift him to the three today in a revenge game. Parsons was up to 25 minutes in the last game and he could be closer to 27 today. He's playing well enough to be owned in standard leagues.

If Luke Babbitt (back) is OK after warmups, he will be in the starting lineup against the Celtics on Saturday.

In other words, he's still a game-time call, but he is on track to play. Babbitt would be starting next to Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince and Dewayne Dedmon. With guys like DeAndre Bembry back, we may see Ersan Ilyasova and Babbitt start to see their minutes fade.
Nov 18 - 6:02 PM

DeAndre Bembry (wrist) is available to play against the Celtics on Saturday and will play shorter stints upon his return.

To be clear, he's not a complete lock to play after his month out of the lineup. Bembry was called probable yesterday and he should have a role with multiple positions on the perimeter. He's likely to start slow, but the Hawks losing so many games could move him along faster. He's only a pickup in deeper leagues for now.
Nov 18 - 5:57 PM

Ricky Rubio (Achilles) will start against the Magic on Saturday and is expected to play around 25 minutes.

After getting Friday off, Rubio will be back out there after his Jazz team got thumped in Brooklyn. Rubio has been awful this month with poor shooting, a drop in dimes and some poor defense for his club. With him back, Alec Burks and Raul Neto figure to lose minutes. Rodney Hood and Donovan Mitchell should still be in for productive nights.
Nov 18 - 5:32 PM

D.J. Augustin (hamstring) is available against the Jazz on Saturday.

He's back after missing his last seven games. The Magic just had Elfrid Payton come back from a hamstring injury and coach Frank Vogel voiced some concerns about it, so they may not play Augustin much in his return. He did go through practice on Friday, so perhaps he does get minutes in the teens. Shelvin Mack is probably moving out of the rotation soon.
Nov 18 - 5:24 PM

Kemba Walker (wrist) will play against the Clippers on Saturday.

He tweaked his non-shooting wrist on Friday in his 38-minute gem. Walker blew up with a 47-point game in a loss to the Bulls on Friday and he's scored at least 20 in four straight. With Pat Beverley (knee) doubtful to play, Walker could be in for another big night in front of the home crowd.
Nov 18 - 5:22 PM

Iman Shumpert will be out for 5-7 days while he undergoes treatment and rehabilitation for a left knee effusion.

He only played 11 minutes on Friday before he left the game in the first half. Shumpert can't seem to shake his left knee soreness this year, so hopefully the week off can help him get back on track. With him out, Dwyane Wade could be in a better spot while Kyle Korver should be launching a few more treys per game. Korver is a decent add if you need treys. Jose Calderon could start, but he's not really worth using in fantasy.
Nov 18 - 3:34 PM

John Wall (knee) is questionable to play against the Raptors on Sunday.

He said his team started out slow on Friday because of him and that he's had some issues from his knee dating back to early this week. Wall did have surgery on both his knees in the summer of 2016, but somehow he got past his minutes limit almost 1.5 months earlier than expected. If Wall can't go, Tim Frazier will likely get a start and Bradley Beal will be a great option.
