Hawks sign G James Nunnally.

Nunnally excelled in the D-League Showcase and was averaging 18.2 points and 4.4 rebounds while playing for their D-League affiliate in Bakersfield. He's just on a 10-day deal and will serve as emergency depth.

Wilson Chandler (sore back) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game vs. Houston.

Chandler said he was 95 percent sure he'd take the court on Wednesday night after getting through Tuesday's practice without issue, so it's looking like the sore back will end up costing him just one game on the sidelines. His return to the floor will result in either Will Barton or Kenneth Faried heading back to the bench.

Nuggets head coach Mike Malone said he'll be taking a game-by-game approach with the big man rotation sans Paul Millsap (wrist).

It doesn't sound like Malone is committed to using Kenneth Faried as the full-time starter while Millsap is out, and he certainly has plenty of options with a wealth of depth at the four-spot in Denver. Malone could go small by shifting Wilson Chandler to the four and starting Will Barton at the three, or he could give Juan Hernangomez or Trey Lyles some starts. Needless to say, this is a situation we'll be monitoring closely, but Hernangomez might be worth a speculative add in deep leagues.

Kevin Durant (left ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game in Oklahoma City.

Durant practiced in full on Tuesday and there was never much doubt about him suiting up to face his former squad. We should have official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off, but owners can feel confident plugging KD into their lineups.

Zach LaVine (left knee surgery) was able to take some "light contact" during Monday's practice and is on track to make it back to the court by mid-December.

"There’s no real timeframe, I guess," Hoiberg said. "It’s really going to be on how he feels. We’ll try to do a little more every day with him. We did a little bit, got him some light contact [Monday] just to get the process started. He’ll be able to play a little 2-on-2 with not a lot of practice time these next 10 days." The Bulls will be bringing along LaVine slowly with his long-term health being their primary concern, but he has enough upside to warrant a stash in most leagues at this point.

Patrick Beverley underwent a surgical procedure on his right knee Wednesday and he will be out indefinitely.

We'll have a better idea on Beverley's potential return date once we know exactly what kind of surgical procedure he had, but he's guaranteed to be looking at a lengthy absence here and will be tough to hold in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot. Sindarius Thornwell will likely be the L.A.'s starting PG moving forward, but with averages of just 8.4 points, 1.4 triples, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game through five starts, he's basically just a deep league guy. Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will be getting all the run they can handle, with Williams offering the most upside.

Joel Embiid (knee) was a full participant at shootaround and is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

Embiid looked fine playing through a sore left knee on Monday, so there's no reason to believe he'll be taking the night off. On another note, Embiid recently spoke on if he's concerned about people going after him due to his constant trolling and he responded in typical Embiid fashion with: "I’m 7-2 and I’m a big dude, so I don’t think you wanna try me. And I’m African too. That’s the whole point of playing basketball. Having fun, go out there, have fun, kick someone’s a—, and just play."

Paul Millsap has been diagnosed with a left wrist ligament injury and he's currently mulling over his options to determine the best course of treatment.

Both Shams Charania and Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Tuesday that Millsap was set to undergo surgery and expected to miss 2-3 months, but it looks like surgical intervention hasn't officially been decided upon just yet. We'd advise on holding onto him until we have an official timetable and treatment option, but in the meantime, Kenneth Faried should be starting at the four with additional minutes falling to Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles. Will Barton, Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic should all see an uptick in usage as well.
Nov 22 - 11:32 AM

Isaiah Thomas (hip) got in some light contact work during Wednesday's shootaround.

Thomas continues to make steady progress in his recovery from the torn labrum in his right hip, and this is the first time we've seen of him go through any type of contact work. The next big step in his recovery will be incorporating hard cuts into his workouts, so we'll be watching for any updates there, but he certainly appears to be on track to be back in action by January at the latest.

Denzel Valentine scored 17 points in another start on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and matched his career-high of five 3-pointers.

The second-year wing hit 6-of-12 shots and missed his only free throw, racking up nine rebounds, four assists and two steals in 38 minutes. He's a great fit in the first unit because he can take the pressure off Kris Dunn with his playmaking skills, and his floor spacing is also crucial. He put up 12.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 3.0 triples in three previous starts and looks like a hot fantasy pickup with his new role.
Nov 22 - 1:54 AM

Kris Dunn started at point guard on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting with six assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block, one triple and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

Poor shooting and high turnovers have been a theme for Dunn this season, but he's still flirting with top-100 value in standard 9-category leagues with his averages of 11.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.9 triples. His fantasy arrow is pointing straight up and coach Fred Hoiberg made it sound like he'll have a long leash as the starting PG going forward, so make sure he's not floating on the wire.
Nov 22 - 1:48 AM

Brook Lopez scored a season-low four points on Tuesday vs. the Bulls with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in just 25 minutes.

His brother Robin won this matchup, posting 14 points on 7-of-11 shots while Brook finished just 2-of-10 from the field. He's had some awesome games this season, but some major duds as well with six games in single digits. Things are only going to get more frustrating with Larry Nance (hand) due back next week.
