Latest Headlines

Mario Chalmers (Achilles) will not play against the Nets on Friday.

It will be his third game on the sidelines due to some Achilles issues. Chalmers mentioned this has been a problem for a while, so the Heat won't be in a rush to bring him back since they don't care much about the regular season. Norris Cole has been disappointing as the starter, but he did have a decent game on the stat sheet on Thursday and is worth a look as a spot-start.

Landry Fields was cleared for a concussion and was at practice on Saturday.

He needed stitches to his head from Friday and it appears he will be fine. Fields plays about 20 minutes per night and only has value in extremely deep leagues. James Johnson doesn't get a bump in fantasy value.
Dec 20 - 2:16 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.

This is a little bit of a surprise considering he was ruled out until a few hours before on Friday. Still, Durant's injury was scary and the Thunder are still going to have Russell Westbrook. Reggie Jackson will likely benefit most while the rest of the wing guys just help out.
Dec 20 - 2:09 PM

C.J. Watson is questionable for Saturday against the Nuggets with an illness.

He was probable as of Friday with a sinus infection, so a downgrade doesn't sound promising. Watson would be looking at a chance to start, but he hasn't been involved in the offense much since his return. If he's out, Donald Sloan would be worth a look.
Dec 20 - 2:02 PM

Brook Lopez (back) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Detroit Pistons.

The fact that he was ruled out so quick is a little worrying, but Lopez has been doing some conditioning work and even did some light basketball activities on Saturday. Lopez is expected to be evaluated on a daily basis so we should know more soon, while Mason Plumlee will continue to be a must-start player until he returns.
Dec 20 - 1:53 PM

Deron Williams was diagnosed with a low-grade calf strain after an MRI on Saturday, and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game.

This is good news, and the Nets are optimistic that he won't miss too much time. Williams obviously didn't practice on Saturday, but he is expected to be evaluated daily. Check back before tip-off on Sunday, but don't count on him playing in this one. Jarrett Jack would be the main beneficiary if Williams sits, and is worth a look in most leagues.

Zach Randolph (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers.

This comes out of nowhere, and we just learned that he had an MRI, but luckily it came back clean. Randolph didn't practice Saturday, and there is some swelling in his right knee. He looks like he could be in serious danger of missing Sunday's game, and if he sits Jon Leuer and Kosta Koufos would pick up some extra playing time. Stay tuned.
Dec 20 - 1:36 PM

Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Tony Parker (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's game vs. Dallas as expected.

Leonard is said to be targeting a return on Monday, while Parker is still without a timetable. Kyle Anderson will likely continue to play big minutes in place of Leonard, while Cory Joseph will continue to run the point in Parker's absence.
Dec 20 - 1:28 PM

Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will rest on Saturday and won't play vs. Dallas.

We saw this coming from a mile away, as Duncan and Ginobili played heavy minutes in their last two triple-overtime games. Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes will pick up the slack for Duncan, while Danny Green and Marco Belinelli will see a boost in minutes due to Ginobili's absence.
Dec 20 - 1:24 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is still listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.

Even if he was active, he would have gotten the Patrick Beverley treatment so owners can go ahead and bench him. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect Dennis Schroder to draw another start. Shelvin Mack will also see some extra run as well, and just scored a career-high 24 points on Wednesday. Both players are worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of short-term value.
Dec 20 - 12:55 PM

Lance Stephenson (hip) is highly doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Jazz.

He sat out on Friday against the 76ers, and there is almost no shot that he will play vs. the Jazz. Gerald Henderson will likely draw another start, while Gary Neal will also see a boost off of the bench. Stephenson has upside, but unless he is traded to a more favorable situation he will be really tough to own in standard leagues.
Dec 20 - 12:49 PM

Dwight Howard (shoulder) is probable for Saturday's game against the Hawks.

This is the first we are hearing about a shoulder injury, and it will be interesting to see if it has an impact on his game Saturday. Owners can at least take comfort in the fact that Howard's knee appears to be doing well, but this shoulder injury should cause some concern. Owners may want to check back before tip-off just to be safe, but Howard shouldn't be in danger of missing this one.
