The Lakers are "engaged in talks" to trade for Trevor Ariza, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Suns reportedly want "a playmaking guard and a draft asset" in return for Ariza. It sounds like the fundamentals of a deal could be close, since they're "working to reach an agreement with a third team" willing to take on Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's $12 million salary. A trade to L.A. would help the Lakers in reality, but it wouldn't necessarily benefit Ariza's fantasy value while LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram are healthy.

Dec 9 - 7:48 PM

Tim Frazier was nearly perfect on Sunday, going 4-of-5 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe for 14 points over 34 minutes in a win over the Pistons.

Frazier added two 3-pointers, three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two turnovers while he was out there, and he made some clutch plays during crunch time to help secure the win for New Orleans. He typically won't do much for you in the scoring department, but with averages of 8.6 points, 6.8 dimes, 1.3 triples and 2.3 turnovers per game across nine starts this season, he's on the radar as an assists specialist in deep leagues.
Dec 9 - 7:19 PM

E'Twaun Moore (leg) was a no-show on Sunday, scoring just four points on 1-of-5 shooting (2-of-2 from the line) to go with two rebounds and nothing else over 16 minutes.

There was some miscommunication about Moore's playing status in this one, but based on his performance, he probably should have just sat this one out. With the Pelicans set to take on the Celtics on Monday, there's a chance he'll skip that game to try and get over this lower leg injury, which would result in more minutes for Solomon Hill and Tim Frazier. Moore has been in an awful slump through December, and is trending towards cut-candidate territory.
Dec 9 - 7:19 PM

Robert Covington (sore right knee) is probable to play Monday against the Warriors.

Covington sat out Saturday's game with the knee issue, but it's looking like it'll only be a one-game absence. With RoCo expected to play tomorrow, Derrick Rose will likely return to the second unit and Josh Okogie could drop from the rotation entirely.
Dec 9 - 7:14 PM

Anthony Davis (right hip) went 2-of-7 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line on his way to six points, nine boards, four assists, five blocks and one turnover in 26 minutes on Sunday.

Davis took a knee to his right hip on a Blake Griffin drive to the hoop that forced him out for most of the first half of action, and while he eventually got back out there after halftime, he clearly did not look 100%. This is the sort of thing that could get worse overnight, so for now, we're going to have to consider him questionable for Monday's game in Boston. With it being the second leg of a back-to-back set, the Pelicans won't host a shootaround, so owners might not get another update until he's able to go through his pregame routine.
Dec 9 - 6:51 PM

Nikola Mirotic scored 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting during Sunday's 116-108 win over the Pistons, adding seven rebounds, two 3-pointers and one block across 30 minutes.

This was a nice bounce-back performance for Mirotic following Friday's four-point, 1-of-6 shooting disaster, and he started the second half with Anthony Davis going down with a hip injury. Davis did return to play, but looked hobbled, so there's a chance he'll need to sit out Monday's game against the Celtics; which could result in Mirotic getting a start. Alvin Gentry mentioned after the game that Mirotic lost six pounds in a day when he was out with his illness, and indicated that he's still not quite recovered from that.
Dec 9 - 6:50 PM

Julius Randle netted 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting Sunday, to go with six rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one turnover across 34 minutes.

The Pistons couldn't do much to stop him, and he saw some increased opportunity on offense with Anthony Davis (hip) missing most of the first half of action. This was his fourth consecutive game with 20+ points and the 14th time he's done so this season, and if AD can't give it a go on Monday, Randle will see a nice uptick in usage. Per NBAwowy, with Davis off the floor, Randle's usage rate spikes to 32.2.
Dec 9 - 6:50 PM

Jrue Holiday netted a season-high 37 points on 14-of-22 shooting Sunday, to go with six triples, five boards, five dimes, three steals and nine turnovers in 40 minutes.

Holiday got off to a quick start in this one, racking up 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting through his first five minutes of action, and his six 3-pointers accounted for a new career-high. He was more active than usual on the offensive end with Anthony Davis (hip) missing most of the first half, and while AD eventually got back out there, he really didn't look to be 100%. If Davis can't play on Monday in Boston, Holiday could be in for another big night.
