Metta World Peace intends to change his name to "The Panda's Friend" in honor of his move to China.

World Peace plans to name himself after China's giant panda and recently posted on his Chinese Twitter-like Sina Weibor feed, "New Chinese name coming soon. You guys are going to love it!" The soon-to-be Panda Friend became the Chinese Basketball Association's highest-paid import player when he signed a one-year, $1.43 million with the Sichuan Blue Whales, but doesn't hold any fantasy value outside of leagues that award points-per name-change bonuses.

Seth Curry (right knee sprain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

Rick Carlisle said on Monday that he didn't expect Curry to play Wednesday, so he's on the doubtful side of the questionable-tag, and owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out, Deron Williams will see his playing time in the high-30s while Devin Harris will earn close to 20 minutes off the bench. Stay tuned.
Dec 6 - 4:23 PM

Dirk Nowtizki (Achilles) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

Wednesday will be Nowtizki's sixth straight game on the sidelines, and Rick Carlisle hasn't given any clues regarding when we can expect Dirk to get back on the court, although with this season quickly turning into a lost cause for Dallas we'd speculate that he's doubtful for Friday's game against the Pacers. Dorian Finney-Smith will likely continue to start, but Dwight Powell is the guy you want to target.
Dec 6 - 4:16 PM

An MRI revealed a minor bone bruise in Andrew Bogut's right knee and he's expected to spend at least the next two weeks on the sidelines.

This is probably the best news the Mavs could have got regarding their oft-injured center, but with Bogut and Dirk Nowtizki (Achilles) out of commission, Dwight Powell will get his time to shine and he's someone to consider swooping up as a speculative add in standard leagues. Salah Mejri should be able to earn some starts sans Bogut, but he's more of a wait-and-see guy in deep leagues. Bogut only has 14th round value on the year, so he's not really worth holding through the injury.
Dec 6 - 4:00 PM

Vince Carter (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

Tuesday will mark Carter's fifth straight game on the sidelines, which will likely result in Troy Daniels and Tony Allen getting all the minutes they can handle, and perhaps Toney Douglas can get into the game for longer than the eight minutes he played Monday night. For now, we'll be considering Carter questionable for Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Dec 6 - 3:57 PM

Zach Randolph (personal) will return to action for Tuesday's game against the 76ers, as expected.

Randolph will be returning from a seven-game absence, and the Grizzlies sure could use him with Vince Carter (hip), Chandler Parsons (knee), James Ennis (calf), Mike Conley (back) and Brandan Wright (ankle) all set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines. Randolph should be heavily involved in Memphis' offense with all those guys out, although he could also be dealing with a minutes limit after a lengthy absence, so he's a risky DFS target. JaMychal Green could lose some minutes with Z-Bo back.
Dec 6 - 3:56 PM

George Hill (left big toe) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

This will be Hill's fourth straight game on the sidelines, so while he's been phenomenal while on the court this season, his penchant for hitting the sidelines has been extremely frustrating. Dante Exum should continue to start with Rodney Hood and Gordon Hayward running the show on offense. For now, we'll be considering Hill questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.
Dec 6 - 3:51 PM

Larry Nance (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game in Houston.

Nance was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, and he was officially "available to play" on Monday, so he's probably much closer to probable for Wednesday's game. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but Nance's return to action will syphon away some minutes from Thomas Robinson and Julius Randle.
Dec 6 - 3:48 PM

Marvin Williams (knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Wednesday has been the target date all along, so things are trending in a positive direction here, although we likely won't get official confirmation on his status until we're closer to game-time. With Williams back in action, Frank Kaminsky will return to the bench and Spencer Hawes could fall out of the rotation entirely. Williams has been awful this year, connecting on just 33.6 percent of his shots, so he's a more attractive pickup in points leagues.
Dec 6 - 3:38 PM

Sean Marks said he suspects that Jeremy Lin (hamstring) will be able to return to the court "pretty soon," although he'll remain on the sidelines for Wednesday's game vs. Denver.

"He’s so vocal, still at practice, in the locker room and has been from day one when he was out with his injury," said Marks. "He’s progressing well. I obviously don’t want to put a time limit or a day, but I suspect it pretty soon." Lin reportedly looked good while going through his shooting drills on Tuesday, but he's still yet to go through a full practice with the team, and until that happens owners can plan on being without him. He was a top-60 guy before going down, so we'd recommend staying patient.

D'Angelo Russell (knee) has been cleared to start going through on-court work with the Lakers, although he will not be traveling to Houston for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Russell is reportedly "feeling better," although Walton did acknowledge that it's unlikely he'll be able to play Friday vs. Phoenix or Sunday vs. the Knicks. Perhaps there's a chance that he can get back to the court for Monday's game in Sacramento, but that would be on the early end of his initial 2-3 week timetable. For now, Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson will continue to soak up the backcourt minutes in Russell's absence, with Sweet Lou offering the most upside.
Dec 6 - 3:13 PM

Isaiah Thomas (groin) did not participate during Tuesday's practice.

Thomas tweaked his groin during Monday's loss to the Rockets, so for now, we're going to consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Orlando. If he's out, Marcus Smart or Terry Rozier could move into the starting lineup, with Avery Bradley and Al Horford being asked to step it up on the offensive end. Owners can expect to get another update on Thomas' status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it's worth noting that he was able to get some shots up after practice.
