Nikola Jokic hit 8-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 23 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists and a block in 33 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Spurs.

Jokic racked up his fourth triple-double of the season and it really should have been No. 5, as he missed one by two points back on Nov. 1. Jokic is who we thought he was and is rolling right now, averaging 18.4 points, 10.8 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five, while also knocking down 88 percent of his free throws. Jokic's owners went through a rough patch when he was out half of December, but he's been on cruise control since Christmas, returning second-round fantasy value on the season.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose (knee) will play against the Blazers on Friday.

Rose went through practice on Thursday and Thibs said Rose is "good" after missing Wednesday. Rose has multiple games where he couldn't finish due to soreness, so it'll be something to watch today. His return takes some upside off Jeff Teague, Robert Covington and Andrew Wiggins while Josh Okogie may not be in the rotation either.

Coach Alvin Gentry anticipates Elfrid Payton (ankle) will play Friday against the Knicks.

Payton said he felt good in the morning and may have hinted that he's going to play, but he is still going to be a game-time decision. The Pelicans are on a back-to-back set, so he may not get a full workload. Payton was playing great to start the season and should be picked up if he was dropped. His return could affect E'Twaun Moore's hot streak while guys like Wes Johnson and Darius Miller would lose playing time.

Draymond Green (right toe sprain) is listed as out vs. Dallas on Saturday.

This is a back-to-back set for the Warriors, so it makes sense. He did not play well in his return to the lineup on Thursday with no points in 24 minutes. Before his one-game suspension, Green missed some time with this toe issue and he did have a minutes limit last night, too. With him out, it'll likely be Jonas Jerebko getting another start with Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney picking up some extra run, especially if Alfonzo McKinnie (foot) can't play.

Serge Ibaka (knee) and Kawhi Leonard will start against the Celtics on Friday.

Ibaka was a late scratch on Wednesday night, but he's been expected to play all day today. He was the heavy favorite to start today against Al Horford and he had success in an earlier game this season with 21 points during a win last month. Get him in your lineup.
Nov 16 - 5:39 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) will not play vs. Washington on Friday night.

He tweaked his ankle at the end of the first half on Wednesday and did return, but the Nets will hold him out for a game. The Nets still haven't totally unleashed him yet with a groin issue keeping him out for the start of the season, so hopefully this new ankle issue is only a one-game thing. DeMarre Carroll played a lot of power forward on Wednesday and is likely going to get time there again which opens up more wing minutes for Joe Harris and Allen Crabbe.

Jarrett Allen (illness) is available for Friday against the Wizards.

He's back after missing the last two games on Monday and Wednesday. It's not the best matchup for Allen against Dwight Howard, so maybe coach Kenny Atkinson doesn't get him to his usual 26-30 minute range. He should still be in all lineups while Ed Davis backs him up. Plus, no Rondae Hollis-Jefferson means that Davis and Allen should soak up all 48 center minutes..

Taurean Prince (right Achilles) is doubtful Saturday against the Pacers.

This would likely be his second game out of the lineup after missing Thursday against the Nuggets. Prince also had a right ankle sprain earlier this month, but it's unclear if the issues are related. DeAndre Bembry flopped in his start on Thursday with two points in a blowout loss, so maybe Kevin Huerter starts instead. Both Bembry and Huerter could be worth a look in deep leagues with Bembry having the much higher upside.
Nov 16 - 4:39 PM

John Collins (ankle) is probable for Saturday against the Pacers.

It sounds like he's ready to go for his season debut. Coach Lloyd Pierce said Collins would do some work with the coaching staff, but added the Hawks haven't been practicing much on their road trip. Collins had ankle soreness way back on Oct. 6 and had a procedure, so the Hawks may have to ramp him up. Regardless, he has to be picked up in all leagues and should be the most valuable Hawks in fantasy. Omari Spellman looks like a drop in most leagues.
Nov 16 - 4:36 PM

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right ankle) is out for Saturday against the 76ers.

He did not practice on Thursday and Friday, so it's no surprise he will miss his second game since his Sunday injury. With him out, Miles Bridges will slot into the backup PF role while Dwayne Bacon enters the rotation on the wing. There will be a few extra minutes available for Cody Zeller and Willy Hernangomez, too.
Nov 16 - 3:11 PM

Trevor Ariza (personal) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. OKC.

We don't have any details as to the nature of Ariza's absence, but he was not with the team for Wednesday's game vs. San Antonio or Friday's practice. Hopefully, all is well with Ariza and his family. Mikal Bridges made his first career start on Wednesday and hit 4-of-6 shots for eight points, two rebounds and a block in 25 minutes. Josh Jackson had 14 points and four boards in 22 minutes off the bench. Ryan Anderson logged just seven minutes in the blowout. Expect Jackson and Bridges to divvy up minutes once again on Saturday.
Nov 16 - 2:53 PM

Coach Billy Donovan said that Russell Westbrook (ankle) practiced in practice on Friday, including part of the contact portions, but there is nothing definitive on his status for Saturday's game vs. Phoenix.

Russ has missed each of the Thunder's previous five games, but took part in shootaround prior to Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks. Being able to take part in a full practice on Friday is further proof that he is making progress and quite close to a return. We'll get another update on his status after Saturday morning's shootaround. If Westbrook is unable to play vs. the Suns, Dennis Schroder will draw another start. Paul George, coming off a season-high 35 points, all has a higher usage rate with Russ off the floor.
