The Blazers assigned C.J. McCollum (foot) to the D-League on Wednesday.

He is expected to be available for games on Jan. 3 and 4 for the Idaho Stampede. McCollum has been out all season with a fracture in his foot and he was cleared for full contact last week. The move makes a lot of sense with the Blazers owning one of the most solid NBA rotations, so this will give him a chance to develop. No player attempted more shots per game in summer league, so the rookie will likely have a lot of scoring responsibilities with the Stampede. Once he makes it to the NBA, his minutes figure to be sparse while Mo Williams is healthy.

Jeremy Lin finally got on the board with fantasy owners on Friday against the Clippers, scoring 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 35 minutes.

Lin even waved Kobe off at one point and drew praise from the Mamba after the game for it. There are going to be ups and downs playing for a bad team, but Lin's mid-round upside is right there for the taking and he should be worth owning and/or starting as long as he's healthy.

Blake Griffin poured in 39 points in Friday's win over the Lakers, hitting 13-of-23 shots (2-of-2 3PTs, 11-of-12 FTs) with seven rebounds and four assists.

Griffin did not have a steal or block but who cares when he's humming like this. If he's going to hit his free throws it's going to be a long season for his fantasy opponents.

Rudy Gay bounced back from a bad outing on Wednesday to hit 13-of-19 shots for 40 points in the Kings' 103-94 win over the Blazers on Friday.

Gay added eight rebounds, three treys, 11-of-13 free throws and one steal in what might be his best game of the season. He stayed within himself tonight and that's going to be the key to his success going forward.

Isaiah Thomas continued to smolder in Friday's win over the Spurs, scoring 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting with two rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes off the bench.

You just can't keep this guy down and he appears to have a real good chemistry with the other guards on the team. Thomas' big third quarter keyed a Phoenix comeback, and he pretty much kept it going all the way through the fourth. He should be in all lineups until he cools off, if he cools off.
Nov 1 - 1:26 AM

Larry Sanders started again and scored eight points on 4-of-12 shooting with 15 rebounds, two steals and four blocks in Friday's win over the Sixers.

Sanders logged 27 minutes and only had four fouls, but the big thing to keep in mind is that the opponent was Philly. The Show has had a nice start to the year and he should be in all lineups until that changes.

O.J. Mayo continued to put distance between his fat days and his skinny days with another solid effort on Friday, scoring 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including five threes) with three rebounds, five assists and a steal in 28 minutes.

Starting or not he's arguably the Bucks' best player right now and he looks like he's going to be one of the steals of this year's drafts. If he's available in your league, he shouldn't be.
Nov 1 - 12:50 AM

Nerlens Noel double-doubled with 14 points, 10 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in Friday's loss to the Bucks.

So far so good for Noel, who has averaged a double-double and three blocks for both of his NBA games. He hit 7-of-11 shots tonight after starting the year on a 2-of-11 outing, and he didn't attempt any free throws which is also a good thing for owners.

Kevin Love grabbed 16 rebounds against the Bulls on Friday during an overtime 114-108 win to go with 16 points, one assist, four steals and one 3-pointer on 5-of-17 shooting.

The rebounds are coming in bunches and he's never really been much of a big offensive rebounder anyway, so setting up further from the basket shouldn't hurt his overall output there. Love was actually much better than this stat line suggests, which is a great sign after a slow preseason.

Tristan Thompson had a whopping 12 offensive boards against the Bulls on Friday, adding one defensive rebound, two assists, two blocks and 16 points.

The offensive rebounds were a huge story here and Thompson was so great that he played power forward, unlike Thursday night. He still isn't going to do too much on defense, so fantasy owners shouldn't be too eager to grab him while Anderson Varejao is healthy. From the fun stat department: The last player to have 12 offensive boards and one defensive board was Zydrunas Ilgauskas in 2005.

Derrick Rose said his ankle injury was "minor" after Friday's game against the Cavs.

"I'm walking around so I think everyone can breathe," said Rose. Add this to your list of concerns but don't be overly concerned about it, as it comes with the territory of owning him.

LeBron James put the Bulls away in Friday's 114-108 overtime win, making 14-of-30 from the field for 36 points with eight rebounds, four assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

The shot volume was extremely high and coach Tom Thibodeau has been able to keep LeBron in check for much of his career. LeBron shot just 39.2 percent against the Bulls last season, which is by far his lowest against any team last season. Despite two somewhat sub-par offensive games, there is still zero reason to worry.
