Joakim Noah (right thigh bruise) will not play in Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.
Terrence Ross will start in place of Landry Fields on Tuesday vs. the Spurs.
Ross is worth snatching off the waiver wire wherever he's available. Even if soon-to-arrive John Salmons somehow earns a starting job, Ross should lead Toronto's reserves in playing time and he'll take a hefty amount of the shot attempts left behind by Rudy Gay.
Spurs big man Jeff Ayres will make his first start for San Antonio on Tuesday, replacing Tiago Splitter (calf).
Gregg Popovich may want to keep his primary bench unit intact, with Boris Diaw leading the reserves, and Ayres is a dubious fantasy option. He has yet to score double-digit points or grab more than six rebounds in a game, and he's blocked four shots all year.
Paul Pierce (hand) will return to action on Tuesday in a bench role, according to Jason Kidd.
This is great news for the Nets as they attempt to start a winning streak by defeating the visiting Celtics, but fantasy owners should take a cautious approach to Pierce's return. He was averaging 12.4 points on 36.8 percent shooting in 29 minutes per game before the injury, and may be somewhat limited in his first game back. It shouldn't take him long to regain the starting SF job from Alan Anderson.
Brandan Wright (shoulder) will not be ready to return for Wednesday's game vs. the Warriors, according to coach Rick Carlisle.
Owners who have waited this long won't mind another DNP or two, as long as it means Wright is fully healthy when he returns. DeJuan Blair's ascension to the starting lineup complicates B-Wright's outlook, however, as initially he'll be battling Samuel Dalembert for backup minutes.
Rodney Stuckey (knee tendinitis) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.
He said earlier that he felt good enough to suit up, but his knee may not have reacted well to recent workouts. The good news for Detroit is that Chauncey Billups (knee) is finally ready to rejoin the second unit, and Stuckey remains day-to-day.
Devin Harris (toe) recently had a small setback in his rehab, but he's still hoping to return in December.
"I'm hoping for an early Christmas present, not a New Year's resolution," Harris told reporters on Tuesday. He'll crush any value Gal Mekel and Shane Larkin may have in deep leagues, but isn't likely to play enough to help fantasy owners while Jose Calderon and Monta Ellis are healthy.
Michael Beasley will miss his third straight game on Tuesday as he recovers from a strained hamstring.
"We want to get him back to Miami and build and make sure he's ready to go for the weekend," said Erik Spoelstra, referring to Miami's next game on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers. Rashard Lewis and Chris Andersen figure to gain extra playing time off the bench with Beasley unavailable vs. the Pacers.
