Josh Jackson (knee) will start on Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers, pushing Tyson Chandler to the bench.

It's a late lineup switch for the Suns, but it's just a matchup move. Jackson was going to see a ton of minutes either way, so this doesn't move the needle too much.

Marvin Bagley (left knee sprain) will not return to Friday's game against the Warriors.

Bagley took a bad fall after taking some contact while going for a rebound and immediately asked to be taken out of the game after grabbing his knee. He was ruled out just a few minutes later, which is never a good sign. He's most likely going to miss time, but we'll have to wait for further testing to see how long that' be. Nemanja Bjelica will gain the most in his absence, while Skal Labissiere and Harry Giles might pick up a few minutes, too.

Zach LaVine's ankle injury is not serious according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

He'll undergo more tests on Saturday, but LaVine is still listed as doubtful to play vs. the Spurs. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reported that LaVine is expected to miss a game or two, so his fantasy owners can just sit tight. The Bulls will likely use a committee approach to soak up LaVine's minutes and there isn't a clear fantasy pickup from this news.

Joel Embiid scored 40 points (13-of-22 FGs, 13-of-16 FTs) with a career-high 21 rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal, one 3-pointer, and six turnovers in 34 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

Embiid joined Dwight Howard and Carlos Boozer as the only players to put up a line of 28 points and 14 rebounds in one half of action in the last 15 years. He's been posting nightly lines that haven't been seen in a 76er uniform since Moses Malone and Charles Barkley. He did look a little tired in the second half, but he did have to carry the load with Jimmy Butler (groin) still out. He just keeps getting better and looks to be an MVP candidate.

Kelly Oubre will be traded to the Grizzlies, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

Sure, the Wizards could be in a pickle when Oubre needs to get paid more as a restricted free agent this summer, but he's having easily his best year of his career and has improved in the non-stat areas, as well. Oubre has proven his positional flexibility and he should be able to take minutes from Shelvin Mack, Garrett Temple and Omri Casspi to get him to 26-30 minutes off the bench or even as a possible starter over Temple. He should have already been owned in standard leagues and this could help his fantasy ceiling with a little more risk.

Trevor Ariza will join the Wizards as part of a 3-team deal.

Kelly Oubre will head to Memphis, while Austin Rivers, Dillon Brooks and Wayne Selden will head to the Suns. Ariza could slot right in next to Otto Porter (knee) once he's healthy and will be looking at a similar role in Washington. His owners in standard leagues should see how this shakes out for the time being, but Washington has been a mess all season just like Phoenix.
Dec 14 - 10:20 PM

Austin Rivers will join the Suns as part of a 3-team trade.

First of all, what are the Suns doing? It's another questionable decision from their new front office, but in terms of fantasy it's a great landing spot for Rivers given Phoenix's lack of depth at guard. Rivers is a career 41.7% shooter from the field, but could be a nice source of counting stats, especially while Devin Booker (hamstring) is out. He's still unlikely to be anything more than a late-round player.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a season-high 44 points (14-of-19 FGs, 16-of-21 FTs) in a 114-102 win over the Cavaliers on Friday, adding 14 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and four turnovers.

There’s nothing like a matchup with Cleveland’s 30th ranked defense to get a player going after Giannis was held to 12 points in his previous outing. "I had multiple defenders around me. I had to pass the ball and the game did not come back to me," a frustrated Giannis said about that loss. "We never as a team forced the issue for the game to come back to me. My team wants me to be unselfish, I’m going to pass the ball and that’s going to be it." Tonight was a different story with Giannis taking matters into his own hands with Khris Middleton (finger) and Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) both out, but it’s just a matter of time before Milwaukee’s offense is firing on all cylinders again.

Robert Williams blocked a career-high five shots in 16 minutes against the Hawks, adding two points five boards and one turnover in 16 minutes.

The Time Lord has no mercy when it comes to protecting the rim, and he had his five blocks in 10 minutes before the fourth. On the year, Williams is up to 6.5 blocks per 36 minutes with a respectable 4.4 fouls in his 89-minute sample. Before the game, coach Brad Stevens talked up Williams for putting in work during film sessions, and he's earning minutes in a hurry. Still, he's currently the fourth C on the depth chart, but he did play next to Daniel Theis in garbage time. If you're in a deep league and want to stash some blocks, he's worth a look.
Dec 14 - 10:02 PM

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Wizards are in "advanced talks" to acquire Trevor Ariza.

Woj adds that the Wizards are trying to finalize a multi-team trade tonight. The details are still sprinkling in and there's no mention of any other players/teams involved yet. We'll have another update shortly, but Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson could gain a good bit of value if/when Ariza is moved.
Dec 14 - 9:59 PM

Kevin Huerter matched his career-high 19 points with two rebounds, three assists, one block, three steals and five 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

This had nothing to do with garbage time and he's now scored 19 in back-to-back games. He was one of the best shooters in the draft, and he's caught fire lately. Since Nov. 18, he's made 25-of-51 from deep (49.0%). Huerter has assured himself a rotation spot when Taurean Prince comes back, and he may be playing well enough for coach Lloyd Pierce to push Kent Bazemore back to the bench. The upped pace and bad record makes Huerter worth an add in 12-team leagues to see how long he can keep it rolling.
Dec 14 - 9:24 PM

Frank Ntilikina (sprained right ankle) will not return on Friday night.

He was hobbling around in the second half and he may have been playing through an ankle tweak from earlier in the game, so it looks like it's minor. Ntilikina was trending up with 17.0 points per game over the previous two, and he was playing well today with seven points, six boards, five dimes, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes. Hopefully he can play on Sunday, but if not that means big minutes for Emmanuel Mudiay.
