Dwyane Wade hit 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, two rebounds and six assists in 23 minutes of Thursday's win over the Lakers.

He sat out on Tuesday due to knee soreness and while he didn't look great tonight, the good news is he's only missed two games thus far. Hopefully his knee feels fine in the morning and he'll be ready to go against the Jazz on Saturday.

Jose Calderon hit 6-of-9 shots and a season-high five 3-pointers for a season-high 17 points, three rebounds, a season-high six assists and two steals in 23 minutes of Thursday's win over the Lakers.

If you didn't see the big revenge game coming against his former team, don't feel bad. He'd only hit double digits in scoring twice this season coming in, but had 14 points, four assists and four 3-pointers on Tuesday. Calderon's still not much of a target in 12-team leagues, but could quickly become one, at least until Isaiah Thomas is ready to go through his hip injury. Just keep an eye on Calderon to make sure his last two games weren't a fluke.
Dec 14 - 11:48 PM

LeBron James hit 8-of-18 shots, a 3-pointer and 8-of-12 free throws on his way to 25 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes of Thursday's 121-112 win over the Lakers.

This was LeBron's 59th career triple-double, tying him with Larry Bird for No. 6 all time. LeBron sure doesn't look like he's been in the league for 15 seasons and might finish this one with the best numbers of his career.
Dec 14 - 11:44 PM

Kevin Love hit 9-of-15 shots, 4-of-6 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws 28 points, 11 rebounds, three assists and two steals in Thursday's win over the Lakers.

Love's been dealing with a hip injury and missed Saturday's game, but is still averaging 20.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 2.8 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last four. And we haven't heard any chatter about Love and LeBron James being unable to co-exist this season, which is nice.

Tristan Thompson (calf) experienced soreness in warmups and will not play vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

He only played six minutes in his first game back and was only expected to play a handful of minutes in the first half vs. the Lakers, so he shouldn't have been in fantasy lineups anyways.
Dec 14 - 7:46 PM

Tristan Thompson (calf) will play on Thursday, but he will again be limited to the first half.

The Cavs are taking it easy with Thompson after an extended absence, but they're re-evaluated his restrictions over the weekend. He's best avoided until the minutes increase and he's established some reliable fantasy production.
Dec 14 - 6:32 PM

Dwyane Wade (left knee soreness) will play vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

Wade sat out vs. the Hawks on Tuesday but it looks like that was a precaution, as he'll be back out there for the Cavs' home game tonight. J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver takes a slight hit with Wade back in action.
Dec 14 - 6:25 PM

Dwyane Wade (left knee soreness) is questionable to play vs. the Lakers on Thursday.

Wade was reportedly "on the court following shootaround," but it's unclear how much work he got it. There's a good chance he's heading for a game-time decision -- if he's ruled out, expect J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver to absorb his minutes.
Dec 14 - 4:38 PM

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, LeBron James joining the Lakers this summer would be a "longshot."

It's been well documented that the Lakers will pursue both LeBron and Paul George this summer and they will have the cap space to do so. However, LeBron's free agency plans are still a mystery and he said before the season that he "won't ever cheat my teammates or cheat the franchise ... by talking about free agency all year long." Regardless, expect LeBron to put on a show vs. the Lakers on Thursday night.

Zizic will be an emergency option off the bench for Cleveland until further notice.

Dec 14 - 11:03 AM

Ante Zizic has been sent down for a G-League stint.

With Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson back in action, there are not enough minutes to go around for Zizic.

Tristan Thompson returned from his calf injury and played six minutes, but you wouldn't know it from looking at his boxscore, as he posted zeros across the board.

Thompson has been out since Nov. 1, and while it doesn't mean much of anything in fantasyland, the Cavs will be thrilled to have one of their key big men back.
Dec 13 - 4:40 AM

Kevin Love, who sat out Saturday with a hip injury, was back in action on Tuesday night and hit 6-of-13 shots, 4-of-5 3-pointers and just 1-of-3 free throws for 17 points, 12 rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes of Cleveland's 123-114 win over the Hawks.

Love was a little iffy coming into this one, but felt good enough in warmups to give it a go. He looked very good, all things considered, and will have a quick turnaround, as the Cavs host the Lakers on Thursday night. Given the state of the Lakers, it's possible that Love could be iffy for this one, as well, but the expectation is that he'll be ready to play.
Dec 13 - 4:04 AM

Jeff Green had 17 points, three rebounds and one assist on 7-of-12 shooting in 26 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

Green is now averaging 13.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.6 3-pointers on 59 percent shooting over his last five games. And with four games this week and him being available in most leagues, he appears to have been a decent pick-and-play this week. He's not a must-own player, especially given his lack of threes, steals and blocks, but if you need a warm body to plug into an injury-riddled lineup, he might fit the bill.
Dec 12 - 10:34 PM

Kyle Korver hit 6-of-11 shots and all of his makes were 3-pointers on his way to 19 points, one rebound and one assist in 23 minutes of Tuesday's win over his former team, the Hawks.

It wasn't a season high, but it was the most points he's scored since way back on Nov. 13. Korver's actually coming on right now, scoring at least 13 points in three of his last four games, but outside of the 3-pointers, he's not doing much of anything else. But if you need threes, he's worth a look right now.
