Joel Embiid (eye) vented his frustrations over not playing in Monday's Game 2, posting "[Bleeping] sick and tired of being babied" on Instagram after the game.

This is going to put some unwanted pressure on the Sixers to not only have to answer for the statement, but they'll also feel some pressure to play him, even if they're not ready to turn him loose. Embiid's possibly the best social media presence in professional sports and while this one may not go over as well as some of his attempts at comedy, he should be back on the court sooner than later. The soon to be masked man is questionable for Game 3 on Thursday in Miami.

The Pacers could look to trade either Darren Collison or Cory Joseph this season.

Collison and Joseph essentially split the point guard duties in Indiana, but the Pacers' management is very high on Aaron Holiday and would like to see him earn more consistent minutes. Both Joseph and Collison are on expiring deals, and they could be solid additions to a contending team, so those will be two names to watch as the trade deadline approaches.

The Cavs are reportedly shopping Alec Burks and Rodney Hood.

Burks has played pretty well since landing in Cleveland, but the Cavs would probably be more than willing to move him if it resulted in a draft pick; the same goes for Hood. Both of these guys are in an ideal situation with the Cavs, so a move away from Cleveland could really only hurt them.

Doc Rivers said he's expecting Lou Williams to miss roughly two weeks of action with his hamstring injury.

"They say it’s not a bad hamstring but I’ve never heard of a good one," said Rivers when discussing Williams' timetable. With Williams on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for guys like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Milos Teodosic and Tyrone Wallace.

Fred VanVleet got the start with Kawhi Leonard out with a hip injury on Tuesday and had a career-high 10 assists by halftime.

He finished with five points, six rebounds, a career-high 14 assists and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes. VanVleet should return to the bench soon, assuming Kawhi's injury isn't serious, but if you used him in DFS tonight, he came through in a big way. If Kawhi's out again on Wednesday against the Warriors, FVV will be a popular play again in DFS.

Kyle Lowry picked a trio of the league's best defensive guards to break out of a slump against on Tuesday, hitting 8-of-13 shots and four 3-pointers for 21 points, five rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block in a 123-99 rout of the Clippers.

There it is. Lowry came in really struggling, scoring seven or fewer points in his previous four games, hitting 4-of-28 shots along the way. That all changed tonight, and the fact he did it against the defense of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Patrick Beverley and Avery Bradley is impressive, to say the least. Ding, dong baby, the slump is dead!

Bryn Forbes started again and hit 8-of-14 shots, 5-of-5 3-pointers and 3-of-3 free throws for a season-high 24 points, a career-high 11 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 32 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns.

He came out on fire tonight and stayed that way, as the Suns refused to guard him. Derrick White fizzled again and Forbes has now scored in double digits in three straight games, making him worth a look in most leagues, despite playing for the wishy-washy Spurs. Just know that this may end up being his best game of the season, as he had everything working against one of the league's worst teams.

De'Anthony Melton started at point guard again on Tuesday and hit 7-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and five turnovers in 33 minutes.

Devin Booker was out with his hamstring injury and Elie Okobo is in the G-League, clearing the way for Melton to run the show in Phoenix. Melton's averaging 14 points, 4.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 43 percent shooting over his last five, and we've been touting him as a pickup for about a week. It's officially time to move on him.

Chris Paul had 11 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and a block for his first triple-double of the season on Tuesday, but hit just 2-of-12 shots in the win.

The Rockets shook it up tonight, starting Eric Gordon over James Ennis, scored a season-high number of points in the paint, and saw their bench, which is the lowest scoring one in the league at 28.2 points per game, come through with 37 points in the tough win.
Dec 11 - 10:29 PM

James Ennis suffered a right hamstring injury on Tuesday night, and as we feared, will not return to the game.

He missed time earlier this season with the same injury, and while it only kept him out for three games, hamstring injuries are tricky in the NBA - especially when recurring. Eric Gordon, Gerald Green and Danuel House are all playing well tonight, and should continue to do so as long as Ennis is sidelined.
Dec 11 - 9:56 PM

Fred VanVleet is starting alongside Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Pascal Siakam and Serge Ibaka on Tuesday, with Kawhi Leonard sidelined with his hip injury.

VanVleet should get plenty of run tonight, while players like C.J. Miles, OG Anunoby, Danny Green and Kyle Lowry should all see a boost in usage, as well. Leonard is also iffy for Wednesday against the Warriors with the injury.
Dec 11 - 9:52 PM

Kawhi Leonard (hip) will not play for the Raptors on Tuesday night.

This is the first game of a back-to-back set for the Raptors and Leonard went from likely to play, to questionable to play, to 'out' throughout the day. This was the first back-to-back set that Kawhi was supposed to play both nights of, but the hip injury isn't going to allow it to happen. It will also leave him iffy for Wednesday night against the Warriors, and owners have to be hoping that the Raptors are just being careful and saving him for Steph Curry and company tomorrow. Guys like Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Danny Green and C.J. Miles could all step up in his place tonight, while Kyle Lowry has a good shot at bouncing out of his slump.
