D'Angelo Russell went off for 32 points, seven 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two blocks and one steal in Tuesday's 116-102 loss to the Raptors.

Russell was unconscious to start the game, scoring 24 points and hitting all seven of his 3-pointers in the first quarter over a 7-minute stretch. When Russell checked back into the game, the Raptors were swarming him and held him to 3-of-14 shooting the rest of the night. "I thought he was unbelievable," coach Kenny Atkinson said. "That was an elite performance in the first half." Russell didn't record an assist, but he's in a nice groove right now, scoring 20+ points in three out of his last four games.

Derrick Favors will return to the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Magic, sending Jae Crowder back to the second unit.

Favors has actually been better when running with the reserves this season, so while he should see a few extra minutes while working with the first unit, his usage will take a bit of a hit. While Crowder will be coming off the bench, he'll likely be the four-man on the floor for crunch time.

Allen Crabbe (right knee) is being listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

If he's out again, Rodions Kurucs could be looking at another start with a dream matchup against Atlanta, which would put him on the DFS radar. In his first career start on Friday, Kurucs came through with 15 points, six rebounds, one assist and one triple on 83.3% shooting. Stay tuned.
Dec 15 - 3:06 PM

Mitchell Robinson (left ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

Robinson turned his ankle when he landed on Frank Kaminsky after grabbing a rebound in the third quarter Friday night in Charlotte. X-Rays came back negative, but it would not be surprising if he missed multiple games after watching him limp off the court. Luke Kornet stepped in and played the entire fourth quarter and all of overtime in Friday's impressive comeback win over the Hornets, scoring 13 points. Kornet will likely soak up Mitch Rob's minutes on Sunday.
Dec 15 - 2:25 PM

Otto Porter (knee) was unable to practice on Saturday and will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup vs. the Lakers.

If Porter is unable to play, the Wiz will be shorthanded on the wing. Both Austin Rivers and Kelly Oubre are unavailable as they are part of a pending trade with the Suns. Should Porter be ruled out, Markieff Morris, Jeff Green, Tomas Satoransky, and Sam Dekker would all be asked to log extended minutes.
Dec 15 - 1:52 PM

Pascal Siakam (back stiffness) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Siakam injured his back in a scary fall Friday night vs. Portland. He was unable to return to the contest. However, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweeted that tests on Siakam came back clean and that he was day-to-day. Fortunately, getting the questionable tag, as opposed to being ruled out, seems to support the belief that Siakam is only dealing with a minor injury. If he is unable to play Sunday, O.G. Anunoby and C.J. Miles will divvy up extra minutes.
Dec 15 - 1:47 PM

Kyle Lowry (left thigh contusion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Denver.

Lowry did not play Friday vs. the Blazers. It was the second game he has missed due to injury this season. Fred VanVleet started in place of Lowry vs. Portland and scored a season-high 21 points, adding eight assists, four rebounds, three triples and four turnovers in 38 minutes. FVV will draw another start if Lowry is unable to suit up on Sunday.
Dec 15 - 1:46 PM

Coach Igor Kokoskov said that there is a "very good chance" Devin Booker (hamstring) plays Saturday vs. the Wolves.

Booker has missed each of the Suns previous six contests but is on track to make his return this evening. Here's the full quote from Kokoskov after the Suns shootaround Saturday morning: "He looks good. To play it safe, I would say questionable, but there is a very good chance he's going to play and if he plays, he's going to start." De'Anthony Melton will be bumped back to the bench and Jamal Crawford and Troy Daniels will see their minutes reduced as well.
Dec 15 - 1:32 PM

Al Horford (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Detroit.

Saturday will be the fifth straight game on the shelf for Horford. Earlier this week, coach Brad Stevens said that Horford would miss at least a few games and that the Celtics would err on the side of caution after he was diagnosed with patellar tendinitis. Aron Baynes, Daniel Theis and Robert Williams will continue to soak up extra minutes in Horford's absence. It's tough to trust any of those three on a consistent basis.
Dec 15 - 1:04 PM

Reggie Bullock (left ankle sprain) will play Saturday vs. the Celtics.

Bullock, sidelined since December 3rd, has missed each of the Pistons last five contests. On the season, he is averaging 10.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists, while shooting just 39.0 percent from the floor. Luke Kennard, Langston Galloway and Stanley Johnson will see fewer minutes with Bullock back in the mix.
Dec 15 - 1:01 PM

Rajon Rondo (fractured right hand) has been cleared to resume basketball activities but will not join the Lakers on their current road trip.

The Lakers play a back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday and then travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets on Tuesday to close out their road trip. Thus, the earliest Rondo would be able to return would be next Friday at home vs. New Orleans. We will obviously have plenty of updates on his progress between now and then.
Dec 15 - 1:00 PM

Kyle Anderson (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.

Anderson turned his ankle in the second half of Friday's loss to the Heat and was able to only play 16 minutes in that contest. If Anderson is unable to play on Saturday night, Dillon Brooks, Omri Casspi and Wayne Seldon will divvy up additional playing time.
