Latest Headlines

Ryan Anderson made his season debut on Saturday and blew up for 26 points and six 3-pointers on 10-of-16 shooting in 27 minutes.

With teammates like Anthony Davis and Jason Smith, Anderson probably won't be relied upon for rebounding as much as he has been in the past, and he had just one of them tonight. But the minutes, the shooting and the overall play was great tonight. If there's no word of a setback on Sunday, feel free to roll him out there in Week 4. Just be aware that the Pelicans play just two games next week.

Greg Monroe played just 14 minutes in Friday's loss to the Magic and scored seven points on 2-of-7 shooting.

The worst nightmare for Monroe's owners came true on Friday as the Bucks used a three-man rotation at center for the first time since November (with the exception of garbage time) -- Miles Plumlee and John Henson each played 16 minutes. Hopefully the lopsided score had something to do with it, but this is worth keeping an eye on during Saturday's game vs. the Heat. Monroe added five rebounds, one assist and one steal, and he's still a hold in standard leagues despite scoring just two points in 18 minutes in his previous outing.

Larry Nance (knee) will return to practice on Saturday and will play limited minutes on Sunday vs. Dallas.

He's not going to play on Friday vs. the Pacers, but this is huge news for the Lakers. His minutes will be held in check right out of the gate, but Nance is worth keeping an eye on going forward with the Lakers rebuilding. Nance averaged 7.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.6 blocks and 1.2 steals in 22.4 minutes on 58.4 percent shooting prior to the injury, so it makes sense to put him on your watch list.

Luol Deng (wrist) will not play on Friday vs. the Pacers.

Brandon Ingram will start in his place once again. The Lakers initially said Deng was out indefinitely a few days back, but he was a game-time call tonight which suggests he's probably day-to-day. Regardless, he belongs on the wire in most leagues anyways. Ingram is looking at a heavy workload and is trending up as a nice stash in standard leagues.

Ryan Anderson (illness) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

He started the game which was a surprise, but clearly didn't look right and finished scoreless in nine minutes. Anderson should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. Corey Brewer started the second half in his place, but there should be more minutes available for Sam Dekker as well.
Jan 20 - 9:28 PM

Joel Embiid (left knee) has been ruled out for the rest of Friday's game as a precaution.

After a fourth trip to the locker room and being ruled out, Embiid came back to the bench and was crestfallen he could not return. He was doing some cutting in the hallway to the locker room to likely try to show he was able to play. In other words, the 76ers just didn't want their franchise player to go out there. He had to battle in this game and probably went to the floor about 10 times with multiple times limping throughout the game. The worst blow for Embiid was a knee contusion in the third quarter and he even tweaked it again later. For now, we don't think it's serious, but there's very little chance he plays on Saturday.

Luol Deng (wrist) is a game-time call to face the Pacers on Friday.

He will test out his shooting wrist and the team will go from there. If he sits, Brandon Ingram would get the start again. We'll pass along the decision on Deng in hopefully about an hour.
Jan 20 - 8:52 PM

Joel Embiid jogged back to the locker room in the third quarter on Friday.

His knee hyperextended after he slipped on the floor and he was limping for about 15 seconds. Embiid gathered himself and went back to the locker room with two trainers. It's likely a checkup and hopefully he's OK.
Jan 20 - 8:37 PM

Garrett Temple is starting vs. the Grizzlies on Friday.

Rudy Gay (Achilles) is out for the season and Temple and Matt Barnes will likely see the biggest bump in minutes. Temple doesn't have great upside, but he did put up averages of 11.4 points, 3.1 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 2.1 treys in seven previous starts this season. Give him a look if has a strong game tonight.
Jan 20 - 7:58 PM

Chandler Parsons (rest) will not play against the Kings on Friday night.

He has not looked right at all and the Grizzlies are on a home-home back-to-back, so this isn't surprising. James Ennis is likely to get the start while the Grizzlies give a few extra minutes to Troy Daniels and Tony Allen. Parsons may be the most annoying player to own, so feel free to cut him.
Jan 20 - 7:33 PM

Noah Vonleh started over Al-Farouq Aminu on Friday against the 76ers.

Well, coach Terry Stotts is at it again. The Blazers are on a back-to-back set, so that might be a factor. There's no fantasy move to be made with this late switch and it won't stick.
Jan 20 - 7:12 PM

Evan Turner is starting in place of Moe Harkless on Friday vs. the 76ers.

Talk about a late lineup switch. The Blazers announced a starting lineup change five minutes before tip-off. Harkless hasn't been 100 percent lately and the Blazers play again on Saturday vs. Boston, so maybe the idea here is to monitor his minutes tonight. Harkless' owners shouldn't panic, but it wouldn't be a complete shock if he got the night off completely.
