Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He is without a timetable and after suffering some bruising to his knee. Hawes can be cut in most formats.
Dec 17 - 8:59 PM

The Kings have reportedly reached out to Vinny Del Negro regarding their current head coaching vacancy.

This is an interesting development, and we'll give any updates as they become available. For now, Tyrone Corbin will run things under the interim label, and it'll be very interesting to see how the rotations develop in Sacramento with a new coach at the helm.
Dec 16 - 7:12 PM

Jordan Farmar (back) scored 15 points in 23 minutes to go along with one rebound, five assists, one block, and three 3-pointers in Monday's win over Detroit.

"It was great," Chris Paul said of Farmar. "We are all a new team and everybody has been trying to find themselves. Jordan has been trying to pick his spots. Tonight, he just played a lot freer. He was aggressive and fun to watch." Farmar's 23 minutes on Monday marked his season-high, so he's still much more of a deep league fantasy option as Paul's backup.
Dec 16 - 11:52 AM

Blake Griffin scored 18 points on 7-of-16 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block in Monday's blowout win over the Pistons.

Griffin has rehabilitated his season-long value into the top 50-60 range and he's been a solid top-30 play over the last two weeks. It wouldn't be surprising if he continues along that trajectory.
Dec 16 - 3:00 AM

Matt Barnes scored 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting (including three triples) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal over 24 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Pistons.

Barnes is on a roll with top-50 value over the last two weeks, averaging 14.5 points with 2.2 treys, 1.7 combined steals and blocks, 53.2 percent field goal shooting and 88.9 percent shooting from the line. Pick him up in all standard formats and hope he doesn't faceplant.
Dec 16 - 2:56 AM

Jamal Crawford missed all six of his field goal attempts in Monday's blowout win, but did manage to score five points on free throws with two boards, seven assists and a steal in 27 minutes.

Crawford has fluid in the bursa sac of his right elbow but it reportedly isn't serious, and we'll take that at face value unless this becomes a trend. He's a must-own player in all formats.
Dec 16 - 2:53 AM

Reggie Bullock (ankle) returned to action on Monday in a two-minute effort.

Bullock hasn't done anything to warrant attention in fantasy leagues.
Dec 16 - 2:28 AM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Monday against the Pistons.

Coach Doc Rivers said he did not know when Hawes would make it back. Hawes is just a backup to DeAndre Jordan with the occasional minutes at power forward, so his owners shouldn't be too attached to him.
Dec 15 - 9:59 PM

Spencer Hawes had an MRI on Saturday and it revealed no structural damage.

This is great news for the Clippers and coach Doc Rivers even said that Hawes could have played on Saturday if he needed him too. However, the Clippers are going to be cautious with him and they have not yet provided a timetable for his return. "I think it's still early," Hawes said. "We want to figure out exactly what the issue is and try to go forward from there." This is something that we will monitor very closely, and we will provide an update to his status as needed. If he misses any more time, Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will receive a slight boost.

Matt Barnes was fined $25,000 in Friday's loss to the Wizards after he kicked a water bottle into the stands and used profane language to the fans.

This has become very typical for Barnes, as he loves playing the villain role in the NBA. If anything, this incident must have a lit a fire under him considering he responded with his best game of the season on Saturday, scoring a season-high 26 points with one board, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers. If you are in need of a player, Barnes is worth a look as long as he continues to start for the Clippers.
Dec 14 - 9:03 AM

J.J. Redick scored 25 points in a 111-106 loss to the Bucks on Saturday with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

On a night when Tobias Harris hit a game winner and Redick has a nice game, the Bucks needed to win this one to feel good about themselves. As for J.J., he's getting really hot from deep, making a ridiculous 54.8 percent from that range this month. Redick is making over three per game in December, so happy holidays to his fortunate owners.
Dec 13 - 10:35 PM

Matt Barnes had his best game of the season on Saturday, scoring a season-high 26 points with one rebound, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers.

He made 10-of-18 from the field and is starting to come on. Over his last five games, Barnes has averages of 14.0 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.4 triples. Fantasy owners in standard leagues could use those numbers and he was a top-40 guy after the break last year, so there is some incentive to picking him up.
Dec 13 - 10:29 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts played six minutes in his return on Saturday.

He only grabbed one rebound, missed one shot and committed two fouls. Douglas-Roberts is not worth owning in almost any league.
Dec 13 - 10:27 PM

Chris Paul turned the ball over six times for the second consecutive night on Saturday during a loss to the Bucks, adding 10 points, five rebounds, seven assists and one steal.

He had just five turnovers in his first six games combined, so this recent cold spell seems like crazy talk. Perhaps the Wizards made a blueprint for CP3 on Friday night with extra ball pressure, but he'll get it figured out. Paul is still the second-best fantasy point guard behind Stephen Curry.
Dec 13 - 10:24 PM

Chris Douglas-Roberts (Achilles) is available to play on Saturday against the Bucks.

He had some Achilles soreness and has been out since Nov. 5. Douglas-Roberts is not worth owning in almost any league.
