Kevin Durant has withdrawn from team USA's FIBA World Cup trip to Spain.

"Kevin reached out to Coach K and myself this afternoon and expressed that he is just physically and mentally drained from the season," team USA basketball director Jerry Colangelo said on Thursday. KD was one of the cornerstone pieces of the team as he was set to see heavy minutes at power forward. Now Team USA will be scrambling to replace last season's MVP. In a statement released to the public Durant said "After going through training camp with USAB, I realized I could not fulfill my responsibilities to the team from both a time and energy standpoint. I need to take a step back and take some time away, both mentally and physically in order to prepare for the upcoming NBA season."

Hassan Whiteside (knee, hip) is in the starting lineup against the Bulls on Saturday.

Despite being banged up, he should be ready to roll against the Bulls. With Chicago being one of the best rebounding teams in the NBA, it'll be a tough matchup for Whiteside. You're obviously rolling him out there in season-long leagues.
Dec 10 - 7:11 PM

Justin Hamilton (migraine) is out for Saturday against the Spurs.

This comes out of nowhere, so the Nets will need to fill in for their backup center. Anthony Bennett and Luis Scola figure to pick up some of the slack. Hamilton has lost a lot of value after a hot start.
Dec 10 - 7:09 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) and Ed Davis will start on Saturday vs. the Pacers.

This confirms that Harkless' ankle is good to go. He is holding onto top-60 value in standard leagues on the season and should be plugged into all active lineups. Evan Turner's value takes a hit with his move back to the bench.
Dec 10 - 6:58 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle) is back in the starting lineup for Saturday against the Nuggets.

He missed Thursday due to a "right ankle sprain" from Wednesday, but he was on thin ice. Mudiay will really need to play well tonight to get his minutes back. Jameer Nelson takes a hit here.
Dec 10 - 6:57 PM

Josh Richardson (ankle) is warming up with the intention to play against the Bulls on Saturday.

As coach Erik Spoelstra said on Friday, he'll be limited. "He won't play his normal slot of minutes, I'll bring him off the bench. It's much needed," Spoelstra said. Richardson is worth a pickup in most leagues now that he's back. Rodney McGruder and Wayne Ellington take hits here.

Hassan Whiteside (knee, hip) is warming up with the intention to play against the Bulls on Saturday.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said Whiteside is banged up from last night. Last night, coach Spo benched Whiteside for his lack of energy, so maybe this injury is part of it -- Whiteside said he was fine and it was about the Cavs scoring ability. For now, expect him to be a go.
Dec 10 - 6:40 PM

Moe Harkless (ankle) will be active to face the Pacers on Saturday.

All signs are pointing to him being in the starting lineup. Coach Terry Stotts added he's not looking to change the starting lineup, so that's something to keep in mind. Evan Turner and Allen Crabbe lose some of their luster as punt plays in DFS. Harkless is a hold in almost all leagues.
Dec 10 - 6:02 PM

J.R. Smith will start with Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson against the Hornets on Saturday.

Smith is back after a couple games off from his knee soreness. He was really struggling before the injury, so hopefully the time off has helped him. He's a borderline add in standard leagues.
Dec 10 - 5:51 PM

Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) will start against the Nuggets on Saturday.

Well, the Magic have changed their tune. Biyombo is going to play with some soreness and with a harness, so he's not 100 percent. If he's able to avoid injury, he should be busy. This takes Stephen Zimmerman off the board in DFS and also hurts guys like Serge Ibaka, Jeff Green and Aaron Gordon slightly.
Dec 10 - 5:47 PM

Jeff Green (ankle) is available to play vs. Denver on Saturday.

His ankle tweak didn't look too bad, so he may not be limited. Green should actually play a lot tonight, so he's on the board as a DFS punt. He doesn't have much value in standard leagues.
Dec 10 - 5:45 PM

Nikola Vucevic (back) and Bismack Biyombo (shoulder) are out against the Nuggets on Saturday.

Well, coach Frank Vogel may actually have to go small. The Magic have rolled with a three-man big rotation, but now he's left with just Serge Ibaka -- he should play a too. Expect to see a lot of Aaron Gordon at the four, which should open up minutes for Jeff Green and the bench wings. Stephen Zimmerman should also get some burn as a dart throw tonight.
