Latest Headlines

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Rockets offered Clint Capela a five-year, $85 million deal back on July 1.

There were also some incentives that could have pushed the deal up to $90 million. This is obviously significantly higher than previous reports -- ESPN's Tim MacMahon said on Tuesday morning that the offer was in the $60 million range. Feigen adds that the Rockets remain optimistic that a deal will be reached, but it's a bit surprising that it's taken this long for one of the best young centers in the NBA.

Russell Westbrook (ankle) participated in shootaround, but his status for Saturday's game vs. the Suns is uncertain.

Westbrook, who has missed each of the Thunder's previous five contests, is listed as "out" on the injury report. However, he was able to take part in practice on Friday, including part of the contact portions, and was able to shoot around with the team Saturday morning. The Thunder and Suns tip off at 9:00 pm EST, so we should have a definitive update on his status by 7:30, when coach Billy Donovan speaks with the media.
Nov 17 - 2:11 PM

Draymond Green (right toe sprain) will not play Saturday vs. the Mavs and appears unlikely to play Sunday vs. San Antonio.

Here is Steve Kerr's quote on Draymond: "We decided to give him some time off. Don’t know how long it’ll be. The toe (sprain) is lingering." Not exactly encouraging news. We should have an update on Green after Saturday's game, but we'll consider him doubtful for Sunday's matchup vs. the Spurs. With Alfonzo McKinnie (foot) already ruled out for Saturday, the Warriors will be a bit thin up front. Jonas Jerebko will likely see extended minutes, and Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney will likely see an uptick as well.

Elfrid Payton (fractured left pinky finger) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

After missing eight games due to an ankle sprain, Payton finally returned to the Pels lineup on Friday, only to fracture his finger in New Orlean's victory over the Knicks. Despite coach Alvin Gentry saying that Payton was day-to-day on Friday night, it is certainly not surprising to see that Payton has been ruled out. While Payton was previously out of action, Jrue Holiday shifted over to PG, and Wes Johnson started at SF. We can assume the Pels will employ that starting lineup once again going forward.
Nov 17 - 1:16 PM

Kawhi Leonard (rest) will not play Saturday vs. the Bulls.

The Raptors have kept Kawhi out of back-to-backs this season, so this was expected. Especially after he logged 43 minutes on Friday night, while scoring 31 points with 15 rebounds, four assists and three steals. Both OG Anunoby (right wrist) and C.J. Miles (right adductor) are questionable for Saturday's game, so the Raptors may be thin at small forward. Malachi Richardson will likely re-enter the rotation.
Nov 17 - 1:15 PM

John Collins (ankle) will be available to play Saturday vs. the Pacers.

Collins is finally ready to make his 2018-19 season debut. He should have been scooped up in all fantasy leagues by now, after the Hawks listed him as probable on Friday, but definitely grab him if he is somehow still available. Collins will likely be worked into action somewhat slowly, but will be a focal point of a high-paced Hawks offense this season. Thus, his fantasy upside is very enticing.
Nov 17 - 12:50 PM

Taurean Prince (right Achilles) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pacers.

This will be Prince's second straight game on the sidelines. He also sat out Thursday's contest vs. the Nuggets. DeAndre Bembry started in place of Prince on Thursday, but scored only two points, while Kevin Huerter scored 10 points in 28 minutes off the bench. Both Huerter and Bembry will likely divvy up minutes again on Saturday.
Nov 17 - 12:49 PM

Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) is listed questionable on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

Oladipo has yet to miss a game this season, and this is the first time he's had any issues with his right knee since last December, when he was sidelined for a handful of contests. 'Dipo was not his usual explosive self on Friday, when he scored a season-low eight points on 3-of-12 shooting in a win over the Heat. It's possible that he was slowed by the sore knee. Stay tuned for an update on his status later this afternoon. If Oladipo is unable to play, Tyreke Evans would likely be inserted into the starting lineup at SG, which would make him an intriguing DFS/streaming option. Cory Joseph could see an uptick in playing time at SG as well.
Nov 17 - 11:54 AM

Eric Bledsoe scored a game-high 25 points vs. the Bulls on Friday with six assists, four rebounds, one block, three steals and three triples in 30 minutes.

Chicago's defense was very generous tonight (and all season), as Bledsoe, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton combined for 71 points in the 123-104 win. Bledsoe has picked things up after a slow start with 18.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.8 triples in his last five games, hitting an absurd 58.1% from the field in that span.
Nov 17 - 12:03 AM

Khris Middleton nearly triple-doubled vs. the Bulls on Friday with 23 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two triples in 33 minutes.

He was a +18 in the blowout, finishing 9-of-15 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line. Middleton has been on a tear over his last three games with 21, 25 and 23 points on a combined 58.1% shooting, and he's knocking on the door of top-15 value in standard leagues after a cold stretch in early November.
Nov 16 - 11:54 PM

Justin Holiday scored a season-high 20 points vs. the Bucks on Friday, hitting 7-of-12 shots and 6-of-9 triples.

He also added three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 28 minutes. The Bucks were allowing the second most 3-pointers to opponents entering Friday’s game, so this was a great spot for Holiday. He has alternated single-digit and double-digit point games over his past five outings, but has played at least 32 minutes in eight straight games. You could do a lot worse with your last roster spot in a standard league.
Nov 16 - 11:48 PM

Anthony Davis had one of his patented gems during a 129-124 win over the Knicks on Friday, scoring a season-high 43 points with 17 boards, five assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

It was a monster game as AD led the Pels to a 19-point comeback win at home. He is on one of his heaters again and that elbow injury is clearly behind him. Over his last five games, Davis is averaging 31.0 points, 15.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game to become the first NBA player to average 30/15/5 over a 5-game span since Karl Malone from March 16-24, 1988. He could be the No. 1 player going forward.
