Paul George filled it up against the Rockets during a 98-80 win on Thursday, scoring 20 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, two turnovers, three 3-pointers and a season-high six steals.

The steals numbers have been the story with George now leading the NBA with 2.8 per game. November has been a steal fest, averaging 3.6 steals with 17.8 points, 7.6 boards, 5.2 dimes, 0.6 blocks and 2.4 treys. He's still not even hitting his shots and he's turning top-15 value on the season, so he is a good bet to be a top-10 player this season.

Taurean Prince (right Achilles) is doubtful to play Monday vs. the Clippers.

It looks like Monday will mark Prince's third consecutive game on the sidelines, which could lead to another start for DeAndre Bembry, with Kevin Huerter seeing extended minutes with the second unit. The fact that Prince is being labeled as doubtful a full 24 hours in advance of tip-off would suggest he's not all that close, and it's not great that he still hasn't been able to practice. The Hawks are 3-13 on the year, so they won't rush Prince's return.

Jaren Jackson Jr. remains in the starting lineup Sunday even with JaMychal Green (jaw) back from injury.

JJJ has started since Green went down early in the season and has shown flashes of why people were so high on him coming in. Green will likely take some minutes away, but JJJ is still greatly important to the Grizzlies now, as well as their future.

JaMychal Green (jaw) will return Sunday and is expected to play 24-27 minutes.

Green's return will take some time away from standout rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. JJJ has been very good and stands to hold onto the starting spot. Green is a speculative add in deeper leagues.

Russell Westbrook (personal) is not practicing on Sunday and there is currently no timetable for his return.

Hopefully everything is OK with Westbrook and family. Coach Billy Donovan said that they didn't know if Russ would've even been physically able to play on Saturday if he was there and they never got to the point where they tried to test him to find out. He had basically done everything in Friday's practice and was trending towards playing, according to Donovan. Dennis Schroder will continue to start as long as Russ is out. The Thunder play next against the Kings on Monday. Stay tuned.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right ankle sprain) will miss Monday's game against the Celtics.

MKG will indeed miss his third straight game on Monday. Expect Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon to benefit most from his absence, with Marvin Williams, Cody Zeller, and Willy Hernangomez picking up a few extra minutes, too.

Steven Adams feasted on Saturday with 26 points (11-of-15 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 10 rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes.

Adams fell one point shy of his career high in scoring and rookie Deandre Ayton couldn't do much to keep him out of the paint -- five of Adams' boards were on the offensive glass. He's simply cruising over the past five games with 20.4 points on 68.8% shooting, 9.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals. He's not blocking many shots lately but owners can't complain in light of his overall production.

Clint Capela scored 23 points (11-of-14 FGs, 1-of-3 FTs) with 16 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and four blocks in 35 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

Before Capela this year, the last Rocket to record at least 10 point/rebound double-doubles within the team's first 15 games of a season was Charles Barkley with 10 in 1996-97. He's now averaging 17.4 points and 11.8 rebounds over his last five games.

Donovan Mitchell made 10-of-21 from the field for 28 points during a 98-86 win over the Celtics on Saturday, adding three rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block, three turnovers and five 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He was hard on himself in a loss to Philly because of 35 shots with no dimes, but coach Quin Snyder came to his defense before the game today. "The last thing we need from Donovan is for him to feel somehow that him shooting the ball is a selfish act, because him not shooting is more selfish given his role on the team," Snyder said. The runner up for Rookie of the Year still hasn't lived up to the billing for his high ADP, but he did start slow last year, too. Expect him to get it going in the near future.

Mikal Bridges had 14 points, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, four steals and two blocks in 31 minutes as a starter on Saturday.

Trevor Ariza was out again for personal reasons and it's unclear when he might return -- the Suns' next game is Monday in Philadelphia. Bridges is making it awfully hard for coach Igor Kokoskov to keep him off the court, and he was efficient tonight with 4-of-7 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs. Even if he is demoted again when Ariza returns, the upside is real enough to consider adding him in place of an end-of-bench guy.
Nov 17 - 11:50 PM

Marvin Bagley scored 16 points (7-of-10 FG, 2-of-3 FT) with eight rebounds, one assist, and one block in 27 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

The 27 minutes were the most Bagley's seen in a few weeks and comes on the back of a report about coach Dave Joerger's job being in the balance because he's not playing Bagley enough. With upper management wanting their top-2 pick to play more, Bagley is worth adding in most formats.
Nov 17 - 11:34 PM

Luka Doncic (sore left shoulder) finished Saturday's home win vs. Golden State with 24 points (9-of-20 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), nine rebounds, four assists and a pair of 3-pointers.

The Mavs' star rookie was hurt on Wednesday but X-rays were negative and his availability suggests Dallas wasn't very concerned -- his clutch play confirmed it. His offensive efficiency has improved significantly in November with big gains in FG percentage (48.2%, up from 45.8% in October) and FT percentage (81.0%, up from 71.4%). He's still averaging the seventh-most turnovers in the league at 3.9 per game, but even that's not a big concern for most 8-cat and points-league owners.
