The Celtics are reportedly attempting to clear some roster space in order to make room for Evan Turner in the rotation.

The Celtics currently have 18 players on their roster, including the non-guaranteed deals of Keith Bogans, Chris Babb, and Chris Johnson. Turner is coming off a season in which he was exposed for being out of shape and brutally ineffective on both sides of the floor, but if he can get it together he is worth more to the Celtics than at least one of the aforementioned.

James Harden scored 20 points during a 128-110 win in Denver on Friday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block, five turnovers and one 3-pointer.

Not a bad win for a team that didn't get into the high altitude until 5 a.m. following a win in Oakland. Harden's shot was off a bit and it took him until late in the fourth to make his trey, which made him the first player in Rockets history to make a 3-pointer in each of the first 20 games of a season. The Rockets are completely ridiculous with their 3-pointers lately, attempting 39.4 per game in their last five. Meanwhile, they've only taken 6.0 midrange shots in their last five -- Harrison Barnes has taken 8.2 midrange shots per game in his last five. Harden is an MVP candidate with his league-leading assists and has his team sitting in the No. 4 spot in the Western Conference.

Sam Dekker scored a career-high 17 points against the Nuggets on Friday, adding four rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

It was a fantastic game for Dekker, who was already playing the best ball of his career coming into this game. He played clutch minutes against the Warriors on Thursday and is fitting right in for coach Mike D'Antoni with minutes at both forward spots. With Trevor Ariza (back) going down tonight, Dekker is a speculative add in competitive leagues.

Wilson Chandler scored 24 points in a 128-110 loss the Rockets on Friday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

Coach Mike Malone was not happy with how his team defended the three, but it likely wasn't on Chandler. Malone has called Chandler a blessing and it may not be a surprise to see him get the starting lineup, as well. With Chandler as arguably their best healthy player right now and how awful the Nuggets are playing, Malone may up Chandler's minutes on Saturday. He should be owned in all leagues.

Marcin Gortat went off for 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 18 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals before fouling out in 42 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He's averaging a career-high 35.2 minutes per game and this was the second time this season that he played 42 minutes. Ian Mahinmi (knee) can't stay healthy and coach Scott Brooks doesn't trust his bench at all, but Gortat's owners aren't complaining. He's flirting with top-50 value in standard leagues and his owners just have to hope that the Wizards can remain relevant in the East.
Dec 3 - 1:58 AM

Will Barton hit the ground running in his return to the starting lineup on Friday, scoring 17 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Well, he looks like himself again. Barton had been battling his ankle sprain since Halloween and only played in three games since then -- he also was awful in those three with a 21.4 field goal percentage. Simply put, Barton has to be picked up everywhere after this one.
Dec 3 - 1:39 AM

Dwyane Wade (rest) will not play against the Mavs on Saturday.

He is scheduled to get the game off and did not travel with the team to Dallas. On Friday, Wade was fantastic with 24 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes. The Bulls will likely try to limit him when they can, especially in road back-to-backs against weaker opponents.
Dec 3 - 1:34 AM

Rajon Rondo triple-doubled against the Cavs on Friday with 15 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He's had a few phenomenal matchups to get him going strong and his coach has been impressed with how he runs the offense. "I thought Rondo was great all night long," coach Fred Hoiberg said. "You could hear him yelling 'Run with me' to all the guys all game." Rondo will take his momentum in an ultimate revenge game against the Mavs and Mark Cuban with Dwyane Wade (rest) out. After Saturday, it's not a bad idea to try and sell high off the string of favorable matchups.
Dec 3 - 1:31 AM

Pau Gasol returned from a day of rest in a 107-105 win vs. the Wizards on Friday and scored 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

It looks like the maintenance day worked, as Gasol averaged 7.6 points per game in his last three appearances. His days as an elite fantasy asset likely ended the moment he signed in San Antonio, but he's still capable of returning mid-round value.
Dec 3 - 1:31 AM

Updating a previous report, Trevor Ariza left Friday's game vs. Denver with back spasms.

He didn't return, but there was only a few minutes left. Ariza played 43 minutes the night before and logged 31 minutes tonight, but luckily he gets two days off before Monday's game vs. Boston. He finished with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists, five steals and four treys. If we get some bad news on Ariza, Sam Dekker would get some extra burn. To be clear, Ariza should be fine.
Dec 3 - 1:12 AM

Kyle O'Quinn came out of nowhere against the Wolves on Friday with 20 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes.

Wow. That's season highs in points, boards and minutes for KOQ in his start today. He was outstanding on the defensive end and coach Jeff Hornacek stuck with him after not playing him for more than 18 minutes in any of his previous four games. Joakim Noah (ankle) could be back for Sunday, so O'Quinn would only be worth a look in deeper leagues. This looks like one of the flukiest games of the season.
Dec 3 - 12:35 AM

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said "We’ll look at everything" when asked if he will shake up his starting lineup after Friday's 121-85 loss to the Pistons.

The Hawks have lost five straight games and seven out of their last eight, so they've got to try something. Coach Bud even benched his entire starting five at halftime because he was looking for a "spark." Kyle Korver has arguably struggled the most and he finished with seven points on 2-of-8 shooting with two rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes Friday, and he's been held to single-digit points in four out of his last five games. Standard-league owners are probably ready to move on.
