Jordan Bell (left shoulder) will not play on Wednesday night.

It'll be his second consecutive game out of the lineup with soreness. Bell has been on the bench with the team, and there's no reason to think this will affect him long term. With Damian Jones likely out, we should see a good amount of their younger guys.

According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, there are "whispers" that the Pelicans are interested in Otto Porter.

Porter is in the second year of four-year, $106.5 million contract, and O'Connor speculates that an offer of Julius Randle, Solomon Hill and a first-round pick could work. Porter is having his worst season since 2014 and has often found himself on the bench late in games with coach Scott Brooks rolling with Kelly Oubre and Jeff Green a lot. A change of scenery could be a good thing for Porter, especially to an offense as good as New Orleans, but there's been no indication that the Wizards are ready to deal despite their awful start.

Rudy Gay started Sunday's game vs. the Warriors, posting 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 30 minutes.

Gay dropped 12 points in the first quarter and looked plenty healthy on a high-flying dunk (see link below). The 30 minutes were a surprise since he's on a limit and the Spurs are taking every precaution to avoid his recurring heel soreness from becoming a long-term injury. This was the first game in a back-to-back set, too, so it's possible Gay gets a DNP-CD on Monday. Check for updates in the afternoon.

LaMarcus Aldridge found his shooting touch on Sunday, scoring 24 points on 10-of-16 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with 18 rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

Aldridge came in shooting 37.6 percent in November, with a pair of single-digit duds mixed in. He said prior to tonight's win vs. the Warriors that he was confident he'd turn things around. "I don’t think I’ve ever gone through this," he said. "But I will figure it out ... My shot has felt fine. It’s just making the rhythm carry over to the game." He sank his typical array of mid-range jumpers tonight and owners can be confident the worst of his slump is over.

Jusuf Nurkic dished a season-high eight assists on Sunday with 13 points, 14 rebounds and one block in 31 minutes.

The Wizards give up the second-most points in the league and Portland carved them up tonight, with an extra boost from Nurk's savvy playmaking. Dwight Howard (lower back) didn't return after halftime which gave Nurk an even bigger advantage in the paint, but he finished a modest 3-of-8 from the field and 7-of-9 from the line. He's cruising along as a top-15 fantasy center.

Trey Burke scored a season-high 31 points in 29 minutes off the bench on Sunday, sinking 11-of-20 field goals and 8-of-10 free throws with three boards, two assists and two steals.

New York's starters were crushed to open the game and coach David Fizdale found a spark with his second unit, so he stuck with them. Burke has picked up sporadic DNP-CD in November but he's now scored at least 24 points in consecutive games. Pick him up if you want to ride the hot hand, but the Knicks' ever-changing rotations mean he could vanish night-to-night.

Enes Kanter started the second half on Sunday and posted 21 points (8-of-16 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), 19 rebounds, three assists and one block in 38 minutes.

He had all eight of his offensive rebounds in the first half and it was a statement-game type performance after he expressed displeasure with a late-game benching on Friday. When asked if coach David Fizdale had explained his role going forward Kanter replied, "Nope. Nothing. Nothing. Zero." He benefited from rampant foul trouble for Mitchell Robinson tonight and it's unclear if he'll earn more starts given Fizdale's fickle lineups. Even if he does shift back to the bench, he's been giving fantasy owners top-75 value in a reserve role.

Aaron Gordon was on fire Sunday, making his first seven shots to finish 13-of-17 from the field for a season-high 31 points in a win vs. the visiting Knicks.

Gordon had 20 points in the first quarter and Orlando tied a franchise record with 44 points in the frame, taking a double-digit lead over the visiting Knicks. He sank four 3-pointers tonight while adding one rebound, two assists, one steal and four turnovers in just 29 minutes. AG is hovering around top-50 value and something tells us the best is yet to come.

Nikola Vucevic piled up 28 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists during Sunday's 131-117 home victory.

The Magic led by 17 points early and held on to move above .500 for the first time since opening night. Vuc was coming off consecutive 30+ point games and he already has one triple-double this season, as he continues to play at a career-best level. He has added motivation in a contract year and coach Steve Clifford is getting the most out of him, to fantasy owners' delight.

Josh Richardson was ejected from Sunday's game for throwing his sneaker into the stands, finishing with 17 points (7-of-11 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), six rebounds and three assists.

He added one steal and one block in just 25 minutes. The league will take a look at his actions but it shouldn't result in more than a fine. He's the de facto point guard without Goran Dragic (knee) but is still finding his own offense, coming in averaging 20.6 points with 3.1 threes per game (sixth in the NBA) on 45.2% shooting from deep. It can't hurt to double-check his status for Tuesday's home game vs. the Nets.
Nov 18 - 9:07 PM

James Johnson made his season debut on Sunday with eight points on 2-of-8 shooting (both 3-pointers), two assists and five personal fouls in 15 minutes.

Johnson was returning from sports hernia surgery he had in May. He's still not in great shape and could remain on a minute-limit for a while. "It’s not a definitive [limit]," said coach Erik Spoelstra, "Of course, he thinks he can play his full allotment of minutes. That will not happen on my watch. We’ll ease him back into this." He put up top-100 value in just 26.6 minutes per game last season, with mid-round value the year before, so there's enough upside to consider stashing him. His return cuts into Justise Winslow's already-limited appeal.
Nov 18 - 9:05 PM

LeBron James scored a season-high 51 points vs. the Heat on Sunday, making six 3-pointers with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 38 minutes.

It was LBJ's first game in Miami wearing a Lakers uniform, and he mentioned his legacy with the Heat prior to the game, saying, "It’s been so long since I’ve played there, but the banners still hang and the memories are still there." Miami fans may want to erase the memory of this game, in which LBJ ran roughshod over the Heat making 19-of-31 FGs and 7-of-10 FTs in a road win. This was the second game of a back-to-back set but fatigue clearly wasn't a factor -- there's simply nothing he can't do.
