George Hill started against the Nets on Saturday.

The team didn't announce the starting lineup until tip. Hill will start next to Rodney Stuckey and move C.J. Watson to the bench. Hill should be owned in all leagues based on his high usage and 3-point shooting.

According to reports, Lamar Odom is signing with Bilbao in Spain.

While it is highly unlikely we will ever see him in the NBA again, Odom will have to prove his worth overseas before an NBA team would even look in his direction. We will track his progress closely, but he is not on the fantasy radar in any format.

Henry Sims will draw the start on Saturday against the Jazz in place of Luc Mbah a Moute (calf).

While Sims will draw the start, the 76ers will likely use a committee-approach to soak up the minutes at power forward, so we don't recommend adding Sims outside of really deep leagues given how ineffective he has been so far this season.
Dec 27 - 7:58 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play on Saturday vs. the Jazz, and was sent home to Philadelphia for precautionary reasons.

He has missed the past four games and it looks like he could see more time on the sidelines, especially considering the 76ers next home game isn't until Jan.5. We will update his status as needed, but in the meantime K.J. McDaniels and Tony Wroten will be the biggest beneficiaries, and are worth a look in all leagues.

Luc Mbah a Moute (calf) will not play on Saturday against the Jazz.

This is a new injury for Mbah a Moute. The 76ers tend to keep their players out longer than most teams and he has missed a lot of time due to injury in his career, so he's likely out for a handful of games. While he's out, it'll be a collective effort from K.J. McDaniels, JaKarr Sampson, Robert Covington and Henry Sims picking up extra run.
Dec 27 - 7:49 PM

Pero Antic (ankle) is active for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks.

He has missed the last two games due to a lingering ankle issue, so the Hawks will be glad to have him back. Antic will return to a limited role off of the bench, so owners in standard leagues can feel free to ignore him.
Dec 27 - 7:40 PM

Rodney Hood will start in place of Alec Burks (shoulder) on Saturday against the 76ers.

The Jazz are also gaining some confidence in Dante Exum, so he may get more playing time. Hood is shooting the ball a little better from beyond the arc and he did play 21 minutes on Monday, so there's a chance he gets time in the high 20s tonight.
Dec 27 - 7:25 PM

Shawne Williams (foot) is starting against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

He needed a lot of time to warm up and was truly a game-time decision. Williams isn't very involved in the offense and is more of just a floor spacer, so he's not going to have many chances to put up big numbers. Plus, Chris Bosh (calf) is getting closer, so keep him on the wire.
Dec 27 - 7:20 PM

Alec Burks (shoulder) will not play on Saturday vs. the 76ers.

This does not bode well for Burks' status moving forward, and it is already known that he may need surgery in the offseason. He is said to be dealing with some general soreness, so he should be fine with a little rest. Consider Burks day-to-day for now, and expect Rodney Hood to draw the start while Joe Ingles could also see an uptick in minutes.
Dec 27 - 7:10 PM

Kendall Marshall, Brandon Knight, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Johnny O'Bryant and Zaza Pachulia are starting against the Hawks on Saturday.

This is the same lineup as Friday and coach Jason Kidd may have found his answer in the backcourt. Marshall is still nowhere near worthy of a grab in standard leagues.
Dec 27 - 6:59 PM

Rodney Stuckey (eye) will play against the Nets on Saturday.

Everything must have went well despite Stuckey having some problems with the upper part of his eye. His shooting percentage could be at risk tonight, which is troubling considering he's one of the least efficient players in the NBA. Start him at your own peril.
Dec 27 - 6:57 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) is out for Saturday's game against the Hawks.

He reportedly suffered the concussion on Tuesday, but it is not related to his previously fractured nose. He has had some tough luck this season, but owners may want to hold onto him considering Jabari Parker (knee) is out for the season. Johnny O'Bryant will likely continue to start for now, but he has been way too inconsistent to rely upon in most leagues. John Henson played well in his return Friday, and is worth a look in deeper leagues for his upside.

Larry Sanders (illness) will not play against the Hawks on Saturday.

He keeps missing games for strange reasons and this will be his second consecutive DNP due to an illness. The Bucks will have to lean on Zaza Pachulia and John Henson to handle their minutes at center while Johnny O'Bryant should get another start at power forward. Sanders isn't a must-own player.
Dec 27 - 6:49 PM

Rodney Stuckey (eye) is having some problems with the light on Saturday and is warming up to face the Nets.

Technically, he is probable, but we would consider him questionable to play. Stuckey was in a lot of pain on Friday and needed assistance, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him sit. Stay tuned.
Dec 27 - 6:47 PM

Aaron Gordon (foot) is progressing nicely, and didn't need to have his foot checked out as originally planned.

He has even began traveling with the team and is doing non-impact activities, so things are looking great for the rookie. Gordon is still not expected to return until February, and is only worth owing in dynasty leagues for now. Owners in standard leagues can look elsewhere.
