John Wall (knee) is questionable to play against the Raptors on Sunday.

He said his team started out slow on Friday because of him and that he's had some issues from his knee dating back to early this week. Wall did have surgery on both his knees in the summer of 2016, but somehow he got past his minutes limit almost 1.5 months earlier than expected. If Wall can't go, Tim Frazier will likely get a start and Bradley Beal will be a great option.

Ed Davis (ankle) is questionable to play against the Kings on Saturday.

He hurt his ankle early on Friday night, but he was able to play through it for 22 total minutes. Davis has quietly been one of the best backup centers, and his performance is part of the reason Jusuf Nurkic is off to a slow start. If Davis can't give it a go, Meyers Leonard would likely back up Nurk, who figures to play slightly more than usual, as well.

Ricky Rubio (Achilles soreness) is probable for Saturday's game vs. Orlando.

Rubio was sidelined Friday night vs. the Nets. It was the first game he missed all season. Donovan Mitchell started at PG and played 35 minutes. Raul Neto logged 20 minutes off the bench. Nate Wolters saw just three minutes of action. Neto would see his playing time reduced if Rubio returns. Mitchell would still likely log 30-plus minutes. Rubio has struggled this season. He is shooting 37.3 percent from the floor and averaging just 5.5 assists per game. He's never averaged fewer than 7.3 assists over a full NBA campaign.

Kemba Walker (left wrist sprain) has been downgraded to questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

We didn't think much of it when Walker popped up on the injury report Saturday morning, as he was initially listed as probable. However, there is now cause for concern regarding Walker's availability for Saturday night's contest. If Kemba is unable to suit up, Michael Carter-Williams would likely draw the start at point guard. Malik Monk would also see an uptick in playing time off the bench. The Hornets don't have a shootaround today, so we'll have to wait for coach Steve Clifford to address the media this evening for an update.
Nov 18 - 12:38 PM

Buddy Hield (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Portland.

Hield rolled his right ankle Friday night and had to be helped to the locker room. He did not return to the game. Thus, it's not surprising to see that Hield is unable to suit up on Saturday. Bogdan Bogdanovic will likely soak up additional minutes off the bench. The Kings also implemented some two-PG lineups on Friday, so De'Aaron Fox, George Hill and Frank Mason may see an uptick in playing time as well on Saturday.
Nov 18 - 12:33 PM

Danilo Gallinari (strained left glute) is listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Saturday will mark the sixth straight game Gallinari has missed. He reportedly still isn't practicing, so it's unclear when we can expect him back in the lineup. Wes Johnson has been starting in place of Gallo. Johnson had his best game of the season on Friday, finishing with 15 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and four blocks in 43 minutes. However, Johnson averaged just 6.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in his four previous starts.

Devin Booker scored 33 points in 33 minutes during a 122-113 win over the Lakers on Friday, adding three rebounds, four assists and six 3-pointers.

Make that seven 30-plus scoring games in the last 12 for the 21-year-old guard, and his six treys in the first half matched a career high for a half. Booker's offense has taken off this year with 182 possessions of pick-and-roll (including passes), and he's even been above average on scoring efficiency on that play. He's also been great as a spot-up shooter this year, but he isn't getting many opportunities because he's handling the ball so much. He's turned the corner in a big way this year and he could wind up being a reliable 25/5/5 player in a month.
Nov 18 - 2:22 AM

Alex Len pulled down a career-high 18 rebounds against the Lakers on Friday, adding 17 points, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes.

After the game, Len said this was a top-three game in his NBA career. He owned the paint and kept the Lakers in check in halfcourt sets. The Greg Monroe addition shouldn't really hurt Len much because the Suns really want to get him going as a defender and as a paint scorer. He should be owned in standard leagues and hopefully he can start putting a string of games together.

Jamal Murray was on fire again during a 146-114 win over the Pelicans on Friday, making 13-of-18 from the field for 31 points with two rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

It was easily his most aggressive game this year with a career-high 10 two-point makes, and he was only 3-of-7 from deep. The Nuggets continue to go as Murray goes with his 62.2 TS% in wins and just 45.7 TS% in losses, so not surprisingly they won by 32 here. After he couldn't make open treys in October with his 18.2 percent from deep, Murray is now up to a November offensive line of 16.3 points and 2.0 treys per game on 52.7 percent from the field, 40.0 percent from deep and 84.2 percent from the line. He does need to up his steals and he won't help in dimes, but Murray's fantasy owners have to feel a heck of a lot better these days.
Nov 18 - 1:54 AM

Gary Harris made 9-of-11 from the field for a season-high 22 points with three rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

He said there was some mental concern about getting over his soreness in his shooting shoulder, but chances are those concerns went away when he swished his first two attempts from deep in this game. Harris has said his goal is shoot 45 percent from deep this year, and he's on pace to do so with his 46.2 percent to get him to 13.2 points and 2.3 treys per game. Harris is a fantasy stud in a great offense. It's also worth a mention he played in garbage time, so the Nuggets really wanted to get him up to speed after missing a week.
Nov 18 - 1:36 AM

Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 30 points in Friday's 122-113 loss to Phoenix.

Wow. He started this game 0-of-6 at halftime, but finished 11-of-23 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with 10 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. This was his sixth game of the season with 20+ points which is more than any other rookie, and there's no way that coach Luke Walton can justify taking him out the starting lineup with Larry Nance (hand) nearing a return. He doesn't get many defensive stats, but he's still a must-start player in all formats.
