Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Nuggets.

With Thomas sidelined, Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe will get more than their usual allotment of minutes, and Gerald Green will see some extended minutes off the bench. Rookie G Tyler Ennis will also join the active roster, but he's a negligible fantasy option. Green makes for a sneaky play in daily leagues as the team's primary offensive weapon off the bench.
Nov 28 - 7:43 PM

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) will not play on Friday night vs. the Clippers.

Chris Paul should have a good time with Isaiah Canaan. Beverley is not expected to return any time soon, so Canaan is worth owning in some deeper leagues for short-term value.
Nov 28 - 7:41 PM

Darren Collison (quad) is now being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

Collison is just dealing with a bruised quad, so it wouldn't be shocking if he's able to give it a go tonight. With Collsion likely to play, Ramon Sessions can be cut in nearly all leagues. Collison put up 19 points on 54.5 percent shooting from the field during his last outing vs. San Antonio to go with five assists and two steals, so if he plays, he's looking like a must-start guy.
Nov 28 - 7:32 PM

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison (quad) are listed as probable to face the Spurs on Friday.

Now it sounds like they're going to play unless coach Mike Malone pulls a Tom Thibodeau. Gay owners will still want to check back for an update in the next 30 minutes. Omri Casspi would only be a handcuff in deep leagues if Gay does make it back.
Nov 28 - 7:26 PM

Ryan Hollins will start at center in place of DeMarcus Cousins (illness) on Friday.

He's played a whopping 11 minutes all season and just one minute in the last seven minutes combined. Hollins getting minutes in the 20s would be a huge surprise and he is not a fantasy option tonight. Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams figure to benefit the most.

Darren Collison (quad) is being listed on the active roster for Friday's game, but remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

Head coach Mike Malone is optimistic that Collison will be able to give it a go tonight, but plugged-in beat reporter Jason Jones doesn't expect there to be an official update until roughly 45 minutes prior to tip-off. If Collison is unable to go, Ramon Sessions will draw another start at point guard, but he's not a very attractive option going up against a tough Spurs defense. Stay tuned.

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison (quad) are on the active roster against the Spurs.

Coach Mike Malone did have some optimism, but it's still not clear if they're going to play and we'll be tracking this one up until tip. Gay could miss one more game as he recovers from some tendinitis. If Gay is out, Omri Casspi will get a ton of minutes at small forward.
Nov 28 - 7:03 PM

Jeremy Evans (ankle) is questionable to face the Clippers on Saturday.

He has a left ankle sprain and ti doesn't sound too serious. Evans isn't really in the rotation anyway, so he can be ignored in most leagues.
Nov 28 - 6:57 PM

Cory Joseph (ankle) will play on Friday against the Kings.

He suffered an ankle tweak last Friday and will return to the lineup. Joseph should get double-digit minutes tonight and maybe more because of garbage time.
Nov 28 - 6:50 PM

Matt Barnes (calf) will start against the Rockets on Friday night.

He is coming off a two-game absence due to an aggravation to his calf. The Clippers will probably monitor his minutes, so he's not a fantasy option. Reggie Bullock will move back to a reserve and has no fantasy value.
Nov 28 - 6:42 PM

John Henson (foot) will not play on Friday night, and coach Jason Kidd does not expect him to be available for Saturday's game either.

With both Henson and Zaza Pachulia (personal) unavailable, Larry Sanders will get all the run he can handle, with Ersan Ilyasova and Giannis Antetokounmpo seeing some minutes backing up the center position. Sanders has been coming on lately, and could make for a solid low-budget play in daily leagues tonight with a favorable matchup vs. the Pistons, and a healthy heaping of minutes coming his way.

Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel revealed for the first time that in addition to George Hill's knee contusion, he is also dealing with a tear in his left quad and is not expected back until mid-December.

Vogel said that the tear did not show up in the initial MRI because there was too much blood, but that is the reason Hill has been out for so long. C.J. Watson is expected to make his season debut Friday night, and it's not known exactly how that will affect Donald Sloan's minutes. However, given Sloan's solid play so far this season, he'll likely remain in the starting lineup as Watson is eased back into the rotation, and he should remain be held in standard leagues until something changes.
Nov 28 - 6:37 PM

Dwight Howard (knee) will not play against the Clippers on Friday.

The Rockets are going to have to start Tarik Black and Donatas Motiejunas against DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin. Howard does not have a timetable to return and his fantasy owners should have him firmly on their benches.
Nov 28 - 6:30 PM

David Lee (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Hornets, as expected.

He was doubtful headed into this one, so this news isn't very surprising. Lee is targeting a return for Tuesday vs. Orlando, or Thursday vs. New Orleans, but he'll likely be on a minutes restriction upon his return. Stay tuned.
Nov 28 - 6:23 PM

Kemba Walker (thigh, face) is starting against the Warriors.

There was never really a doubt leading up to tonight and he should be in all fantasy lineups. Walker will need to be on his A game on defense for a Stephen Curry homecoming game.
