Corey Brewer will start over Josh Huestis on Thursday against the Suns.

OKC has a lot of options to play next to their four studs, but Brewer looks like the top choice after his 23 minutes on Tuesday. He's still not going to get enough shots most nights and probably won't have value unless he's racking up steals or open treys. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 8 - 6:39 PM

Rudy Gobert handed out a career-high seven assists during Sunday's road loss, adding 12 points (5-of-9 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) and eight rebounds.

Gobert also had one steal and one block in 34 minutes of action, and this was a nice return for fantasy owners after his early ejection on Thursday. Ignoring that game, he's scored double-digit points in all but one game this season, and his blocks have picked up lately with 15 in the past five. He's hitting early-round value and looks even better if you ignore the abysmal FT shooting (59.5% on 5.9 attempts per game).
Dec 9 - 9:49 PM

Rudy Gay notched 23 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes on Sunday, making 10-of-16 field goals and 3-of-4 free throws in 34 minutes.

That gives Gay five double-doubles this season and he looks far more comfortable two years removed from his Achilles surgery. The Spurs rolled to a 110-97 victory behind Gay, DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, and all signs point to Gay cruising with top-100 value. Despite occasional concern about his right heel/Achilles, he's playing in back-to-back sets and hasn't missed a game since Nov. 14.
Dec 9 - 9:41 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored a team-high 26 points on Sunday with eight assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block.

After lighting up the Lakers on Friday, DeRozan kept it up and had 16/5/5 at halftime tonight -- the first time in his career that he's hit those numbers in a half. He shot 10-of-23 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line tonight, without a single turnover in 38 minutes, and continues to post career-best fantasy value in his first campaign under Gregg Popovich.
Dec 9 - 9:40 PM

Fred VanVleet finished Sunday's loss vs. the visiting Bucks with a season-high 19 points, five 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists.

VanVleet shot 7-of-12 from the field and chipped in one steal without a single turnover in 27 minutes. He closed this game in a small-ball lineup while Pascal Siakam watched from the bench, and finally snapped out of an extended slump that had him shooting a combined 10-of-36 from the field (27.8%) over the past five games. He's worth a look if you need a cheap PG in competitive leagues.
Dec 9 - 8:38 PM

Kyle Lowry didn't score in 34 minutes on Sunday, but he did contribute five rebounds, six assists and one block in a home loss vs. Milwaukee.

Lowry sat out last Saturday with a sore back and it's hard to imagine the injury isn't still impacting him -- he's shooting 4-of-28 from the field (14.3%) over the past four games. He's not using it as an excuse and an upward correction is inevitable, so get in your low-ball offers while you still can.
Dec 9 - 8:37 PM

The Lakers are "engaged in talks" to trade for Trevor Ariza, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Suns reportedly want "a playmaking guard and a draft asset" in return for Ariza. It sounds like the fundamentals of a deal could be close, since they're "working to reach an agreement with a third team" willing to take on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's $12 million salary. A trade to L.A. would help the Lakers in reality, but it wouldn't necessarily benefit Ariza's fantasy value while LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram are healthy.

Robert Covington (sore right knee) is probable to play Monday against the Warriors.

Covington sat out Saturday's game with the knee issue, but it's looking like it'll only be a one-game absence. With RoCo expected to play tomorrow, Derrick Rose will likely return to the second unit and Josh Okogie could drop from the rotation entirely.
Dec 9 - 7:14 PM

Anthony Davis (right hip) went 2-of-7 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line on his way to six points, nine boards, four assists, five blocks and one turnover in 26 minutes on Sunday.

Davis took a knee to his right hip on a Blake Griffin drive to the hoop that forced him out for most of the first half of action, and while he eventually got back out there after halftime, he clearly did not look 100%. This is the sort of thing that could get worse overnight, so for now, we're going to have to consider him questionable for Monday's game in Boston. With it being the second leg of a back-to-back set, the Pelicans won't host a shootaround, so owners might not get another update until he's able to go through his pregame routine.
Dec 9 - 6:51 PM

Jrue Holiday netted a season-high 37 points on 14-of-22 shooting Sunday, to go with six triples, five boards, five dimes, three steals and nine turnovers in 40 minutes.

Holiday got off to a quick start in this one, racking up 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting through his first five minutes of action, and his six 3-pointers accounted for a new career-high. He was more active than usual on the offensive end with Anthony Davis (hip) missing most of the first half, and while AD eventually got back out there, he really didn't look to be 100%. If Davis can't play on Monday in Boston, Holiday could be in for another big night.
Dec 9 - 6:49 PM

Allonzo Trier (strained left hamstring) won't play vs. the Hornets on Sunday.

There's no word on how long Trier could be out, but his absence should shift some minutes to Damyean Dotson and Courtney Lee tonight. Trier wasn't helping owners in most fantasy formats anyway, so his absence shouldn't have a big impact.
Dec 9 - 6:48 PM

Blake Griffin went 13-of-25 from the field and 5-of-8 from the line on his way to 35 points during Sunday's loss to the Pelicans.

Griffin added four 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers across his 38 minutes, and while he was very good on the offensive end, he left a lot to be desired on defense. He did hurt his right knee when he made contact with Anthony Davis' hip on a drive to the hoop, but he played through it, and the heavy minutes would suggest that will be a non-issue moving forward.
