Mike Conley returned from an ankle injury and hit 6-of-15 shots and 10-of-12 free throws for 22 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in a win over the Knicks.

Coming back against Raymond Felton and the Knicks was nice timing by Conley, who played 31 minutes tonight. More assists would have been nice, but the fact he played has to make his owners feel better. Nick Calathes, who had been starting in Conley's place, played just 19 minutes, but still managed to come up with 11 points, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer. But he will have trouble sustaining those types of numbers as long as Conley is healthy.

Brandon Knight is listed as questionable for Tuesday against the Pistons.

He went to the locker room on Saturday, but did return and looked pretty good. The Bucks have a four-game week coming up, so his fantasy owners should probably still start him even with some uncertainty. If you have safe options, it makes some sense to bench Knight, though. Jerryd Bayless, Kendall Marshall, Nate Wolters, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo would all help sans Knight.

Ed Davis (ankle) and Carlos Boozer (shoulder) missed practice on Monday.

Davis drew the start on Sunday, but was a major letdown with just four points, five rebounds, one assist, one block and six fouls in 22 minutes against a soft Nuggets D. His ankle injury is not considered serious and we would expect him to play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. The "revenge game" narrative has lost some of its mojo, so Davis might not be a great play for that one.

Xavier Henry may have suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon and is getting an MRI.

This is just not right for Henry. He's had multiple severe knee injuries and just can't stay on the court. Hopefully the MRI comes back negative, but the Lakers haven't had the best luck with MRIs in the past two seasons. Wayne Ellington and Jordan Clarkson may get more run without Henry, but neither are fantasy options.

Kevin Durant (foot) went through some contact in practice on Monday.

He has a big evaluation coming up on Thanksgiving, but his return is getting close. At the very earliest, he could play Friday, but that would be extremely optimistic. His owner should bench him because he is not even allowed to play on Wednesday because of the NBA's hardship exception. The Thunder only have a Friday game after that. Anyone who grabbed KD in their drafts should feel pretty good right now.

Russell Westbrook (hand) could return to Friday's game against the Knicks.

He went through some contact in practce on Monday. Last week he wasn't supposed to be re-evaluated until the coming weekend, but he's apparently doing much better than expected. Fantasy owners in weekly leagues will still probably want to bench Westbrook because the Thunder have no games after Friday this week. Reggie Jackson will lose some value, but he should still be worth owning in just about all leagues.

Thaddeus Young (personal) returned to practice on Monday.

Young is on track to play on Wednesday against Milwaukee and has returned to the team following the tragic loss of his mother. Our thoughts are with Young and his family. With his return, Anthony Bennett should be heading back to the bench.
Nov 24 - 1:45 PM

Roy Hibbert (left ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Mavericks.

The Pacers just can't catch a break. Without Hibbert, the team is expected to start Ian Mahinmi at center against an explosive Dallas offense that has looked unstoppable at times. Hibbert does not currently have a timetable to return, but Mahinmi should be a solid low-end plug-and-play option for however long Hibbert is sidelined.

Eric Gordon (shoulder) is out indefinitely with a torn labrum.

Gordon's left shoulder has a torn labrum as a result of a shoulder subluxation. He's out indefinitely, and that means Austin Rivers should take over as the team's starting shooting guard. New Orleans has very little depth at shooting guard, so Jimmer Fredette should also see some extended run for the Pelicans.

Patrick Beverley (left hamstring) will not play again on Monday vs. the Knicks.

Beverley didn't practice on Sunday after leaving Saturday's game a hamstring injury, and it's going to cost him at least Monday's game against New York. Isaiah Canaan is expected to draw the start in place of Beverley again, and he's averaging just 11.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, a steal and 2.3 triples over six starts (30 minutes per game) this season.

Derrick Rose (hamstring) and Pau Gasol (calf) are both game-time decisions on Monday against Utah.

Previously Rose was questionable, so that's nothing new. Gasol was being listed as probable, and there's no use in guessing with Chicago's injury situation since the designations are largely meaningless in their reports. Gasol should play, but we've already been burned by his being "probable" before this season. With Kirk Hinrich (chest) questionable at best, Aaron Brooks and E'Twaun Moore would likely be the Bulls' point guards if Rose doesn't play. Rose did say he is feeling better and is confident about playing vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday if he can't go on Monday. The good news is he's no longer having pain in his hamstring.
Nov 24 - 11:47 AM

Updating a previous item, Dwight Howard (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

Howard was a "potential go" just hours earlier, but he must not have been feeling comfortable in the morning shootaround to be ruled out so early. Without Howard, the Rockets will continue to roll with Tarik Black at center, but Donatas Motiejunas and Kostas Papanikolaou will be the guys fantasy owners want to use. For what it's worth, beat writer Jonathan Feigen guesses that Howard will miss more than three games with the knee ailment.
