Patrick Beverley scored 11 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

If not for garbage time, Beverley's minutes would have likely been more than his 29 from Thursday. Beverley does only have a team-low 12.0 usage rate, but the Rockets are very successful when he's on the court with his team-high 13.8 net rating. He's posting eighth-round value on the year and could hold that value.

Montrezl Harrell was the backup center again on Friday, scoring eight points with three rebounds and two blocks in 20 minutes.

The Rockets surprisingly rested Nene for a second straight game. That may have been due to how well Harrell played on Thursday or perhaps it could even be a rotation change. Hopefully, Mike D'Antoni sheds some light on this, but Harrell is still only going to be the backup center. He's only worth a look if you're desperate at center.
Dec 3 - 2:35 AM

Corey Brewer played 13 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday with two points, one assist, one steal and one turnover.

Trevor Ariza (back) was hurt in this game, which could help Brewer. He's really fallen down in the wing pecking order, but coach Mike D'Antoni may opt to go with Brewer in the first unit to keep some continuity. Just keep an eye on Brewer with his low upside.
Dec 3 - 2:33 AM

K.J. McDaniels scored two points in four minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

He only saw garbage time, but McDaniels could be called upon to step up for Trevor Ariza (back). There's no need to add him in almost any league, but he could get in the rotation.
Dec 3 - 2:30 AM

Sam Dekker scored a career-high 17 points against the Nuggets on Friday, adding four rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

It was a fantastic game for Dekker, who was already playing the best ball of his career coming into this game. He played clutch minutes against the Warriors on Thursday and is fitting right in for coach Mike D'Antoni with minutes at both forward spots. With Trevor Ariza (back) doing down tonight, Dekker is a speculative add in competitive leagues.
Dec 3 - 2:27 AM

Wilson Chandler scored 24 points in a 129-110 loss the Rockets on Friday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

Coach Mike Malone was not happy with how his team defended the three, but it likely wasn't on Chandler. Malone has called Chandler a blessing and it may not be a surprise to see him get the starting lineup, as well. With Chandler as arguably their best healthy player right now and how awful the Nuggets are playing, Malone may up Chandler's minutes on Saturday. He should be owned in all leagues.

Jusuf Nurkic played 20 minutes against the Rockets on Friday with 10 point, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

Nikola Jokic (wrist) did not play in this game, so Nurkic only getting 20 minutes is a pretty bad sign. He has been a disaster in pick-and-roll coverage and he did do a good job in really any facet on defense. Nurkic also missed both free throws, so he's killing his owners there, too. His fantasy value depends a lot on who owns him, but he's lost a lot of his preseason luster for sure.
Dec 3 - 2:17 AM

John Wall scored 17 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 15 assists in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

This was his second game in a row with 15 dimes and he added two rebounds, three steals and one triple in 37 minutes. Wall did miss practice on Thursday, but the Wizards are just managing his reps to keep him fresh for the games. The Wizards are only 6-12, so they will need to turn things around in order for Wall's fantasy value to be safe when it matters the most.
Dec 3 - 2:12 AM

Kenneth Faried scored 14 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 23 minutes.

The Nuggets were run out of their own gym to start this one, giving up 42 points in the first quarter. After the game Malone was not happy with how his guys covered Ryan Anderson in the first quarter, and he talked about how the hustle wasn't there. To be clear, this doesn't necessarily mean he's talking about Faried. He's still worth owning in standard leagues.

Bradley Beal scored 23 points with five 3-pointers in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

He somehow finished without a block, steal, rebound or assist, but he shot 7-of-11 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Beal is on a tear right now and has scored 23 or more points in four straight games. The Wizards are managing his reps in practice, so hopefully that will keep him fresh for the long run.
Dec 3 - 2:09 AM

Markieff Morris (ankle) scored 12 points with four rebounds, three assists and one block in 38 minutes vs. the Spurs on Friday.

He twisted his left ankle on Wednesday, but it's not the same ankle that bothered him earlier in the season. Considering he played 38 minutes, it's safe to assume that his injury is very minor. Morris shot 4-of-7 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line, but did turn the ball over four times. He's been a low-end asset in standard leagues so far, but he has room to grow.
Dec 3 - 2:05 AM

Emmanuel Mudiay made 3-of-12 from the field for nine points against the Rockets on Friday, adding three rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

With Will Barton back in the mix, that means Mudiay will now have more pressure on him, as well. With Jameer Nelson playing well and the shooting guard minutes looking very full with Barton and Jamal Murray, Nelson could take some minutes from Mudiay. That's especially the case when the Nuggets are trailing in the second half. He's a headache to own in standard leagues.
Dec 3 - 2:02 AM

Marcin Gortat went off for 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 18 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals before fouling out in 42 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

He's averaging a career-high 35.2 minutes per game and this was the second time this season that he played 42 minutes. Ian Mahinmi (knee) can't stay healthy and coach Scott Brooks doesn't trust his bench at all, but Gortat's owners aren't complaining. He's flirting with top-50 value in standard leagues and his owners just have to hope that the Wizards can remain relevant in the East.
Dec 3 - 1:58 AM

Juancho Hernangomez did not score in eight minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

He was a DNP-CD on Sunday, but this makes for two straight games with eight minutes. Hernangomez will need a couple things to go his way to hit double-digit minutes again.
Dec 3 - 1:57 AM

Danilo Gallinari scored 16 points with five rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

Coach Mike Malone sure loves to go full throttle on Gallo. Despite being very injury prone, Gallinari has played 35.5 minutes per game in his last two after he missed the previous three games due to a thigh injury. The Nuggets will travel to Utah for Saturday, so maybe Malone keeps Gallo closer to 30 for that tough matchup.
