Hawks sign forward Mike Scott to a three-year, $10 million deal on Friday.

The third year is a team option and this solidifies the bench behind Paul Millsap and Al Horford. Barring an injury in front of him, Scott isn't going to have much fantasy value.

Dwight Howard (knee) will not play against the Mavericks on Saturday and has no timetable to return.

He was basically doubtful and he's still not well enough to play. Howard had plasma rich platelet treatment this week, but he still hasn't had a full workload at practice. Tarik Black played well on Wednesday and will get the start again. Kostas Papanikolaou will also benefit. Howard owners can push the panic button, but cutting him is not an option.

An MRI confirmed Tobias Harris (right calf) is dealing with a strain and he is is day-to-day.

There are no specifics yet, but based on the information it sounds like a Grade I strain for Harris. Players tend to miss a day or two, but there are instances when it'll take a week to recover. His owners should bench him for now and we should have an update before Monday. Basically the entire rotation benefits here.

Evan Fournier will start next to Victor Oladipo, Willie Green, Channing Frye and Nikola Vucevic on Saturday against the Heat.

The Magic are really going tiny here without Tobias Harris (calf) and it's just a testament to how coach Jacque Vaughn sees Fournier as the French version of a Swiss army knife. Fournier should be owned in all standard leagues until he cools off, which may not even happen this season.

Jose Calderon will be in the starting lineup against the Sixers on Saturday.

There is no official minute restriction, but the Knicks would be extremely foolish to play him big minutes. Calderon has been out all season after an aggravation and he has a laundry list of muscle issues in his career. He should be owned in all leagues, but his owners should bench him. Shane Larkin owner will want to cut him in just about every league. We'll also keep an eye on how Calderon's return affects guys like Iman Shumpert.

Norris Cole (finger) will not play against the Magic on Saturday.

It's going to be Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier handling the minutes at point guard tonight. With Chalmers logging more minutes at point guard, Shannon Brown will also be getting more run. The Heat have no been playing James Ennis at shooting guard much, so he doesn't benefit much.
Nov 22 - 5:42 PM

Marcus Smart (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Blazers.

It seems hard to believe that he is even close to a return after an ugly ankle injury. The Celtics are off until Friday following Sunday's game, so perhaps Smart will be ready for that contest. Phil Pressey should get some extra run tomorrow while Marcus Thornton and Evan Turner also see a bump.

Kobe Bryant (rest) did not practice on Saturday.

Coach Byron Scott said he had him rest for heavy legs. "He’s such a workaholic that sometimes it can hurt you more than help you. So I told him ‘I’ll see you Sunday,‘" Scott said. Bryant definitely looked like he needed the rest with he and Nick Young missing their first 12 shots in an embarrassing loss to the Mavericks on Friday. He'll be ready on Sunday against the Nuggets.
Nov 22 - 4:31 PM

Jeremy Lin (back) and Carlos Boozer (shoulder) skipped practice on Saturday.

Both injuries are not considered serious. Lin did have to battle two different bouts with back pain last season and it did cost him some game action, so this isn't nothing. The Lakers cannot afford for Lin to go down and would be down to Ronnie Price and Jordan Clarkson. Neither player are worth a grab at this juncture and we'll give Lin the benefit of the doubt for now.
Nov 22 - 4:23 PM

Russell Westbrook (hand) went through portions of Saturday's non-contact practice.

He is still in the rehab process and there is no timetable for his return just yet. Westbrook will be re-evaluated later this month and he could be back in the lineup soon after than. Reggie Jackson will certainly take a hit, but he should still be worth owning in standard leagues.

Kevin Durant (foot) went through a non-contact practice on Saturday.

He only did some of the drills, but coach Scott Brooks said the reigning MVP "looked good." Durant is going to have his foot evaluated on Thanksgiving, so that could be a big day in determining when he will be back. Brooks also said he's not sure what the plan will be on KD's minutes upon his return. Regardless, his owners can start to get excited about his return. Also, owners of Perry Jones, Anthony Morrow and Andre Roberson might want to start looking for alternatives.

Cory Joseph (ankle) and Matt Bonner (illness) are doubtful to face the Nets on Saturday.

The Spurs are going to be in a little bit of trouble tonight with no backup point guard. In previous instances, they have used Manu Ginobili as the primary ball handler in the second unit and that should be the case tonight. Austin Daye may also get some extra playing time.
