Latest Headlines

Jordan Farmar turned it around on Friday night against the Jazz, scoring 16 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

This is what owners were expecting and not the three-point dud on Christmas. The Jazz are dead last in defensive efficiency, but at least Farmar was still able to turn in a big game. He's worth owning in all standard formats with no competition behind him.

Evan Turner (thumb) was not a participant during Thursday's practice.

Turner played during the Celtics' last game despite the thumb issue, so we'll consider him probable for Friday's game against Houston. However, with a tough matchup against Patrick Beverley, and a busy schedule on Friday, there are probably better options you can plug into your active roster tomorrow.

Avery Bradley (thumb, hand) did not practice on Thursday.

Bradley was able to fight through his ailments during Boston's last game, and he ended up logging 37 minutes. His absence from practice is likely to just get him some rest, and we'll be considering him on the probable side of questionable for Friday's game vs. Houston. Stay tuned.

Gordon Hawyard (sinus congestion) did not practice on Thursday, but he is expected to play Friday vs. the Warriors.

Sinus congestion seems about as minor of an ailment as they come, so owners should not be fretting about him missing any game-time action. He will however have a tough matchup against Golden State on Friday, so that is something to consider for people playing daily leagues.

Steve Kerr said that Andrew Bogut (illness) went through practice on Thursday, and that he is good to go for Friday's game against Utah.

Bogut will likely slide back into the starting lineup upon his return, which will hurt the value of both Marreese Speights and David Lee.

Lakers' GM Mitch Kupchak said that Kobe Bryant will be ready for training camp next season.

"We spoke last night, he's in great spirits," said Kupchak of Bryant. "He's excited about the prognosis and being ready for training camp. The big key is we have to improve the talent level on the team." This is an interesting statement, because Kobe's initial timetable of nine months would have him out until November of next year. Kupchak also said that retirement was not discussed when talking with Kobe, and we'll continue to track The Black Mambas' status closely on his road to recovery.

Deron Williams (ribs) went through the majority of Thursday's practice, however, he remains out for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

Williams was able to go through some contact portions of Thursday's practice, so he is certainly making progress. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but with Williams out, Jarrett Jack will continue to play heavy minutes for Brooklyn. Jack had taken the starting gig away from Williams even before the injury, so there are no guarantees that Williams will immediately return to the starting lineup when he's 100 percent.
Jan 29 - 2:41 PM

Nick Young (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

Young will travel with the team on their upcoming four-game road trip, and head coach Byron Scott said he expects Young to return soon. In the meantime, Wayne Ellington, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin will all have some increased opportunity for as long as Swaggy P is unavailable. However, with a tough matchup against Chicago tonight, all these guys figure to be risky options in daily leagues.
Jan 29 - 2:28 PM

Updating a previous report, Anthony Davis (groin) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers.

He is dealing with a Grade 1 abductor strain, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. If Davis sits, Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik will be the primary beneficiaries. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 2:25 PM

Mo Williams (personal) was not present during the Timberwolves' practice on Thursday, but he will meet the team in Philadelphia on Friday.

We'll be considering Williams questionable for Friday's game against the 76ers, as it's not yet known if he has fully recovered from the hip injury he was dealing with earlier in the week. If Williams sits, Zach LaVine would draw the start in a favorable matchup against the Sixers. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 2:09 PM

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau expects Jimmy Butler (illness) to play against the Lakers on Thursday.

Butler has struggled a bit recently as he's averaged 15.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 2.1 steals on just 40.6 percent shooting from the field. His return will cut into the fantasy production of Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich, while Butler's owners can feel free to slot him back into their lineups and hope that Jimmy has some new moves to get back on track.
Jan 29 - 1:39 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) said he is without a timetable for his return.

Wade spoke with the media on Thursday and closed his session by saying, "You won't be seeing me for a while so get a good look at this face." Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said James Ennis will pick up some of Wade's minutes, but Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers become the priority pickups for fantasy owners as it sounds like we won't be seeing Wade for at least a couple weeks.
