Derrick Favors scored a season-high 24 points during a 118-91 win over the Rockets on Thursday, adding 10 rebounds, one block and one steal in 26 minutes.

Rudy Gobert was ejected after three minutes in this game, so that's the explanation for Favors having easily his best game of the season. The Jazz have been shifting him to center more as the Jae Crowder at the four lineup has worked for coach Quin Snyder, which has led to some inconsistency on Favors. He's still done enough in blocks and in FG% to remain owned in standard leagues.

Mitchell Robinson (left ankle) went to the locker room in the second quarter on Friday.

He went up for a board and his left foot turned next to Frank Kaminsky. Robinson was able to put weight on his left foot en route to the locker room, and he didn't turn it over as much as some more common turns. This also isn't the same ankle that bothered him earlier this season. Hopefully, he's going to be OK, but we could see more Enes Kanter and Noah Vonleh tonight.

Hassan Whiteside is back in the starting lineup against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He was away from the team for a week to be there for the birth of his son, and of course there was the talk of him leaving the bench early in the game before. Whiteside may not get a full workload after so much time off, but go ahead and put him back in your lineup. This will take minutes from Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk.
Dec 14 - 7:21 PM

Mike Conley (hamstring) is available to play against the Heat on Friday.

He has said he's been careful with his hamstring and on Wednesday he didn't want to sprint 100%, so this could be something to watch. The Grizzlies are also on a back-to-back set with Houston in town tomorrow, so Conley could have a soft limit tonight.
Dec 14 - 7:19 PM

Otto Porter (knee) is out again for Friday against the Nets.

He still can't get right after being a game-time decision and sitting out on Wednesday. Porter's season has been an injury-filled letdown, and hopefully the time off for his knee can help his knee heal too. It'll be Jeff Green starting again after a surprising 22-point Wednesday while Kelly Oubre continues to play extremely will.
Dec 14 - 7:05 PM

Taj Gibson (personal) will not play Saturday against the Suns.

Hopefully everything is OK, but the Wolves shouldn't need him against the worst team in the league. This puts Dario Saric in a smash spot for DFS, and it should be Anthony Tolliver backing him up.
Dec 14 - 6:57 PM

Rodions Kurucs will get his first NBA start against the Wizards on Friday.

Allen Crabbe is not going to play due to a minor knee issue, so coach Kenny Atkinson will reward the rookie for his strong play. He'll be the youngest non-American to get a start for the Nets in franchise history, and he should have a shot at 24 minutes. He's coming off a strong 13-point, three-steal game on Wednesday, so he's an option as a DFS punt tonight. He's not a bad stream either.
Dec 14 - 6:52 PM

Eric Bledsoe, Pat Connaughton, Tony Snell, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez will start against the Cavs on Friday.

If you missed it, Khris Middleton (finger) and Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) are out for this one, but it doesn't sound like they'll be out for long. The Cavs are one of the best matchups in the NBA with the horrible defense, and Connaughton could see additional run in garbage time. He just got over a knee issue earlier this week, but he's a viable DFS punt today.
Dec 14 - 6:43 PM

Dwyane Wade (general soreness) is out for Friday against the Grizzlies.

General Soreness is back on duty and stationed in Memphis today after Miami's road trip is coming to a close. Wade played 32 minutes in the two games before getting blown out on Wednesday, so it's no surprise he's out here. Tyler Johnson should get his minutes extended while Wayne Ellington, Justise Winslow and Derrick Jones Jr. could play more.
Dec 14 - 6:38 PM

Otto Porter (bruised right knee) is a game-time call for Friday vs. the Nets.

This isn't much of an update because Porter is still listed as questionable and day-to-day with no further details on the severity. Kelly Oubre has been on fire lately and will benefit the most if Porter sits, but Jeff Green would pick up some minutes/value as well.
Dec 14 - 6:04 PM

Allen Crabbe (knee) will not play Friday against the Wizards.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said Crabbe banged his knee, but is confident it’s a short term issue. Crabbe has been hot and will undoubtedly be back in the starting lineup upon his return, so he is still a hold. For tonight, Spencer Dinwiddie should be in the starting lineup while DeMarre Carroll, Shabazz Napier, Rodions Kurucs and Joe Harris pick up a few extra minutes. Dzanan Musa has also been called up for today.
Dec 14 - 5:59 PM

Jimmy Butler (groin) will not play Friday against the Pacers.

That means Furkan Korkmaz is likely looking at another start after an 18-point game in a tough matchup against the Nets, and Landry Shamet should also get minutes in the 20s. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are both looking at some heavy usage as both will be chalky plays in DFS. Butler is day-to-day after missing his second game, and coach Brett Brown said there's a chance he could play Sunday.
