Steve Blake returned from his elbow injury and failed to score in 32 minutes, but also had five rebounds, six assists and three steals in Tuesday's loss.

He missed both of his shots, but also suffered a ruptured eardrum tonight. The good news is that he has been cleared to fly to Cleveland and was able to play through the injury. The weather in Cleveland is shaky and there are concerns about the Lakers being able to land at the airport tonight, but for now, Blake sounds like a go for Wednesday. With Steve Nash and Kendall Marshall healthy, and Jordan Farmar on his way back, Blake's going to have a tough time offering much long-term consistency as Mike D'Antoni continues to mish-mash his lineup and rotation. But on the other hand, Jodie Meeks (ankle) went down tonight and it doesn't sound like the Lakers plan on using Nash on Wednesday, which could mean another nice dose of minutes for Blake, at least for one game.

Jaylen Brown sank 10-of-13 field goals to finish Saturday's road win with a career-high 27 points, four rebounds, four 3-pointers and one steal.

Brown committed one turnover in 35 minutes, and the four 3-pointers were one shy of his career-high. He's had at least one steal and 3-pointer in five straight games, and needs to be owned despite a glaring weakness -- he made 3-of-7 free throws tonight, lowering his season average to 60.8 percent.

Rodney Hood thrived off the bench against the Magic on Saturday, scoring 31 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and seven 3-pointers in just 26 minutes.

He has the greenest of lights off the bench and came into this game with 18.0 points and 3.4 treys in his previous five games in the second unit. There are not many reliable offensive weapons off the bench, so he'll have every opportunity to score 20 per game like the Jazz were hoping for. He'll need to stay healthy, but things are looking up after a letdown in 2016-17.

The Celtics won their 15th consecutive game on Saturday, led by Kyrie Irving's game-high 30 points on 10-of-12 field goals and 5-of-5 free throws.

Boston trailed by 15 points after one quarter tonight, but as usual they clawed back to improve their record to an astounding 15-2. Kyrie hit five 3-pointers with five assists, four rebounds and one block tonight, rounding out an uber-efficient game. His recent facial fracture obviously isn't bothering him, and it's important to remember that he hasn't even played 20 games with his new team -- the best is yet to come.

Derrick Favors made 10-of-12 from the field and all five free throws for a season-high 25 points with 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

Besides the awesome stat line, this was probably the best Favors has looked all year. He was battling for position down low and he is establishing a nice rapport with Donovan Mitchell -- the guard threw one off the glass to feed Favors for a dunk. He is easily a beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) and things are looking up now that he looks spry again. He could be a sell-high player, but there's a good chance Favors cruises in the next month.

Noah Vonleh will start against the Kings on Saturday.

Caleb Swanigan got a quick hook on Friday, so he may be out of the rotation. Vonleh still isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 18 - 10:11 PM

Raul Neto scored nine points with two rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 24 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

He did some damage in garbage time and he had a ridiculous +44 in this 40-point win. Among players this century with 24 or fewer minutes, only Wally Szczerbiak had a better plus/minus with +50 in 2001. Crazy stat aside, Neto is going to lose run now that Ricky Rubio is back. Not a bad weekend with his career-high 22 on Friday, though.

Brandan Wright (right groin) will not return on Saturday night.

The team ruled him out at half after Wright departed tonight's game with 8:26 left in the second quarter. He was playing well as Marc Gasol's backup and he was even seeing minutes at power forward, so this could be a tough one to overcome for the Grizzlies' second unit. If he needs to miss time, Deyonta Davis could move into the rotation or the Grizzlies could go smaller more often.
Nov 18 - 9:16 PM

Jeremy Lamb (hamstring) will not return to Saturday's game against the Clippers.

He went back to the locker room with a trainer and the team ruled him out about five minutes later. Hamstring strains are the trickiest soft-muscle issue for sports injuries, so there's a chance Lamb needs to miss games. If he does, Malik Monk could get back in the rotation or Dwayne Bacon and Nic Batum could have their minutes extended.
Nov 18 - 9:11 PM

Ed Davis (ankle) said he will play against the Kings on Saturday.

He tweaked his ankle in the first quarter on Friday, but he was able to play through it. Davis has played well and the Blazers did struggle when he was off the floor last night, so maybe he gets more burn. He's not worth owning in most leagues, though.
Nov 18 - 8:54 PM

De'Aaron Fox, George Hill, Garrett Temple, Skal Labissiere and Zach Randolph will start against the Blazers on Saturday.

One good turn deserves another, apparently. This lineup got a win last night, but it was more about Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein in the second unit. Fox has a decent chance to keep the job as a starter and he played 25-of-27 minutes next to Hill last night.
Nov 18 - 8:39 PM

Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Jonas Jerebko and Derrick Favors will start against the Magic on Saturday.

That means Rodney Hood moves back to the bench just like he was before Rubio missed Friday. Hood is still taking a ton of shots off the bench and he'll probably close this game out if the game is close. The production is there and he likely just needs to stay healthy.
