DeMarcus Cousins erupted for 40 points, 22 rebounds, four blocks, four assists and two 3-pointers vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Nobody has put up those numbers in a game since Patrick Ewing in 1990, and only four players have accomplished it -- if you include the 3-pointers, it's just Boogie. He made 12-of-25 field goals and 14-of-21 free throws tonight, making the Nuggets pay dearly for trying to go small with Kenneth Faried at center. Lesson learned. Until Anthony Davis (strained left adductor) returns, Cousins is going to be ridiculously busy.

Brett Brown is debating whether to start J.J. Redick or Landry Shamet at shooting guard for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

Ben Simmons (back) is out, which will shift Markelle Fultz over to the point guard position, thus opening up a spot at the two. The 76ers won 52 games last year with Redick as the starting two-man, but Brown likes the scoring punch he brings off the bench, so he may start Shamet to keep the roles consistent. Even if Redick doesn't start, he should clear 30 minutes and will see an increased role on offense, giving him some DFS appeal.

Markelle Fultz will start at point guard for Tuesday's game against the Pistons, with Ben Simmons (back) unavailable.

With Fultz shifting over to his natural position at PG, Brett Brown will bring either J.J. Redick or Landry Shamet into the starting five, and T.J. McConnell may see an uptick in minutes with the second unit. We should get word on the official starters within the next 30 minutes. Stay tuned.

Ian Mahinmi (back) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

Mahinmi exited Monday's game due to back spasms, and if he is forced to the sidelines on Wednesday, that would leave the Wizards very thin at center with Dwight Howard (back) also unavailable. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at shootaround, so expect another update by Wednesday afternoon. Jason Smith could start if he's out, and Thomas Bryant could get into the rotation.

Dwight Howard (back) will not play on Wednesday against the Warriors.

He's not traveling with the team, so there's a good chance he'll miss the remaining four games of this road trip. Ian Mahinmi (back) is being listed as questionable, and if he can't give it a go, the Wizards will need to get creative at the five-spot. Jason Smith could start, while Jeff Green and Markieff Morris would see an uptick in minutes.
Oct 23 - 6:16 PM

Klay Thompson (left ankle) is probable to play Wednesday against the Wizards.

Thompson tweaked his ankle during the fourth quarter of Monday's blowout win over the Suns, but the injury was never believed to be serious, and the probable tag confirms that. We should get official confirmation on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Stay tuned.

Will Barton underwent successful surgery to repair hip and core muscles on Tuesday and he will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

On Monday, Barton was given a rough 5-6 week timetable, but unfortunately, it's now looking like his absence could extend beyond six weeks. He's a tough guy to hang onto in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot, but owners may want to try and sell him for next to nothing rather than cut him for a waiver wire scrub if that's the situation you're looking at. Torrey Craig should continue to start in his absence, with Juancho Hernangomez and Trey Lyles also filling out some of the small forward minutes.

Ben Simmons (back) will not suit up for Tuesday's game in Detroit.

Simmons skipped shootaround and didn't practice Monday, so it's not surprising to see him taking the night off. Markelle Fultz or T.J. McConnell will start at PG with Simmons unavailable, which will likely bring J.J. Redick back into the starting lineup and Joel Embiid will see an uptick in usage. The 76ers play again on Wednesday vs. the Bucks, and for now, we'll consider Simmons doubtful for that one.
Oct 23 - 5:40 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (left ankle) will make his regular-season debut on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

Dedmon will likely be limited in his first game back since suffering an avulsion fracture back in early-September, but it'll be interesting to see what his minutes look like once he's fully up to speed. Alex Len was unproductive in his first two games with the Hawks, but he came through with a solid double-double on Sunday, so maybe he'll be able to hang onto the starting gig. Dedmon is just a low-end add in deep leagues if you're desperate for a big.
Oct 23 - 3:17 PM

Jamal Murray (leg) is not being listed on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

Murray played through a left tibia contusion on Sunday, but the injury was never believed to be serious, and he is fully expected to be in the starting lineup for tonight's game. He was dreadful in his last game, missing all nine of his field goal attempts, but he should be able to bounce back tonight with a much more favorable matchup against Sacramento.
Oct 23 - 2:41 PM

Updating a previous report, James Ennis (right hamstring) is expected to miss the next 2-3 games for Houston.

With Chris Paul (suspended) also unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Michael Carter-Williams will move into the starting lineup alongside James Harden, Eric Gordon, P.J. Tucker and Clint Capela. While MCW will see an uptick in minutes, we don't expect him to bring anything noteworthy to the boxscore. Mike D'Antoni said that Ennis' hamstring injury "wasn't too serious," so he should be back by next Wednesday.
Oct 23 - 2:22 PM

An MRI revealed a moderate left MCL sprain for Kris Dunn and he is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks of action.

Dunn doesn't have a history of knee issues, but he has had a tough time staying on the court over the past few years, and he could be on the longer end of this timetable considering winning games isn't necessarily a priority for the Bulls this season. Cameron Payne, Ryan Arcidiacono, Tyler Ulis and Shaquille Harrison will divvy up the PG minutes in Chicago, but none of those guys are great targets in most settings. Look for Zach LaVine to spend more time running the offense in Dunn's absence.
