Updating a previous item, the Celtics are expected to receive the 2017 No. 3 pick and the 2018 Lakers picks with protections in exchange for the 2017 No. 1 pick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

If that Lakers pick doesn't convey with the protections next year, the Celtics will receive the 2019 Kings pick. The protections are still not clear, but the NBA changed its rules where unprotected picks acquired in previous deals can add protections, so the 76ers could have some protections on these unprotected assets. This report of only getting two picks is also coming from the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald. The trade call will be finalized on Monday.

LeBron James hit 8-of-18 shots, a 3-pointer and 8-of-12 free throws on his way to 25 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes of Thursday's 121-112 win over the Lakers.

This was LeBron's 59th career triple-double, tying him with Larry Bird for No. 6 all time. LeBron sure doesn't look like he's been in the league for 15 seasons and might finish this one with the best numbers of his career.

Karl-Anthony Towns abused the Kings for 30 points, 14 rebounds (5 offensive), a season-high five assists, a steal, a season-high five blocks, two 3-pointers and zero turnovers on Thursday, all while hitting 11-of-16 shots in 35 minutes.

If you've been patiently waiting for KAT to blow up, it finally happened in a big way. He dominated against college teammate Willie Cauley-Stein and the Kings, and even though he's scored more at times this season, this was his best fantasy line of the year. He's rocking over his last four games, averaging 24.5 points, 13.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 4.0 blocks, 2.5 steals and 1.0 3-pointers. Let's go!

John Collins returned from a six-game absence with a shoulder injury and picked up where he left off, hitting 7-of-10 shots for 15 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block off the bench in Thursday's 105-91 loss to the Pistons.

Welcome back! If Collins was dropped in your league, go get him before someone else does. He should get a ton of minutes for the tanking Hawks the rest of the way, as long as his shoulder injury is officially behind him. He played 20 minutes tonight, which isn't bad considering how long he was out.
Dec 14 - 10:48 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie went off for a career-high 26 points (9-of-17 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) in Thursday's loss to the Knicks.

He also flirted with a triple-double, finishing with seven assists, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes. The Nets have a gem on their hands and Dinwiddie has quickly become one of the team's best building blocks for the future. He should be considered a frontrunner for the waiver-wire pickup of the year and will maintain some nice value if/when D'Angelo Russell (knee) returns.
Dec 14 - 10:46 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (knee) said he's uncertain if he'll be able to play on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

He left Thursday's game with what appeared to be a non-contact injury, but the Knicks are calling it "left knee soreness" for now. Porzingis said after the game that he's not in "significant pain" and he was able to stand on his own, but he won't know more until the Knicks re-evaluate him on Friday morning. If KP can't play, Michael Beasley could see a nice bump in value and just dropped 15 points in 20 minutes vs. the Nets.
Dec 14 - 10:35 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson went off for a career-high 25 points in Thursday's 111-104 loss to the Knicks.

The Knicks had no answer for RHJ tonight and it didn't help that Kristaps Porzingis (knee) left the game early in the third quarter. RHJ was getting whatever he wanted on offense and finished 10-of-16 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, but he also posted a monster line with seven rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks. He's played 35 or more minutes in three out of his last four games and will continue to see heavy workloads with Trevor Booker out of the picture. If he ever adds a 3-point shot, RHJ's ceiling in fantasy would be insane.
Dec 14 - 10:32 PM

Michael Beasley needed just 20 minutes to produce 15 points, four boards, one assist, one steal, three turnovers and five fouls in Thursday's road win over the Nets.

Kristaps Porzingis checked out early in the third quarter with a non-contact knee injury and didn't return, so Beasley and Courtney Lee picked up the slack on offense. Beasley hit 7-of-16 shots in the win, and he's on the radar as a potential pickup in case we get bad news on Porzingis. When Porzingis is not on the court, Beasley's usage rate climbs from 20.2 to 28.8.
Dec 14 - 10:24 PM

Courtney Lee scored a season-high 27 points to lead the Knicks to a 111-104 road win over the Nets, hitting 9-of-17 shots with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and three triples.

Tim Hardaway Jr. described his leg injury as "serious" and could be out a while longer, and Lee had even more responsibility on offense tonight with Kristaps Porzingis (knee) leaving the game for good early in the third quarter. Lee was coming off back-to-back duds with a combined 14 points in his last two, but he's been sneaky good this season and is worth owning, especially with the Knicks banged up.
Dec 14 - 10:13 PM

De'Aaron Fox will not return to Thursday's game vs. the Wolves due to a left quad contusion.

He was in a lot of discomfort on the sidelines and was getting stretched out by the trainers. He'll finish with two points and two assists in seven minutes. Frank Mason will pick up some extra minutes tonight and could have some nice short-term value if Fox misses additional time. George Hill would also see a nice bump in usage, but he's been hit-or-miss this season.
Dec 14 - 8:50 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) will not play on Thursday vs. Cleveland.

KCP is playing nearly 35 minutes per game this season, so the Lakers will likely use a committee approach to absorb his workload. The Lakers haven't announced a replacement starter yet, but Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer and Josh Hart are candidates to see increased roles. Clarkson offers the most streaming upside with 13.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.8 triples over his last five games in just 22.0 minutes.
Dec 14 - 7:07 PM

Dwyane Wade (left knee soreness) will play vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

Wade sat out vs. the Hawks on Tuesday but it looks like that was a precaution, as he'll be back out there for the Cavs' home game tonight. J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver takes a slight hit with Wade back in action.
