Marc Gasol tied a career-high with 32 points in the Grizzlies' easy 117-100 win over the Celtics on Friday, hitting 13-of-22 shots (6-of-6 FTs) with eight rebounds, two assists and one block.

Gasol looks like he has lost some weight and he's ripping off solid top 15-20 value so far this year, averaging 19.1 points with 7.8 boards and a combined 2.8 steals and blocks per game. Zach Randolph went for 16 and 16 with four assists, and Mike Conley scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with three treys, four rebounds and eight assists.

Courtney Lee (flu) was one of five players to return to action on Friday for the Grizzlies, but managed just five points on 2-of-5 shooting with two assists and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Lee has been great this season and we're not about to dog him for tonight's one-sided and strange game. Look for him to get back on track against the Clippers on Sunday.
Nov 21 - 11:39 PM

Jon Leuer played 22 minutes off the bench in his return from the flu on Friday, scoring a season-high 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one three.

Leuer got his numbers in this lightly contested game but he'll need to show consistency to get anybody's attention in most formats. Without an injury to Zach Randolph or Marc Gasol, it's hard to see him getting enough run to produce.
Nov 21 - 11:37 PM

Jarnell Stokes (illness) returned to action and played one minute on Friday.

Stokes has gotten good reviews from teammates and scouts but he's buried in the Memphis rotation.
Nov 21 - 11:34 PM

Kosta Koufos (flu) returned to action on Friday, putting up four points with one rebound in 15 minutes off the bench.

Koufos isn't worth your time unless something happens to Marc Gasol, and even then he wasn't a reliable option last year in that exact circumstance.
Nov 21 - 11:29 PM

Beno Udrih played 26 minutes in his return from the flu, scoring nine points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

Nick Calathes is returning from his suspension and that leaves Udrih with no fantasy value.
Nov 21 - 11:28 PM

Tayshaun Prince will start in place of Tony Allen (illness) Friday vs. the Celtics.

Prince is going to get some increased opportunity tonight with Allen and Quincy Pondexter sidelined, but that doesn't mean much. He's averaging 7.2 points and 2.6 rebounds with the starting unit, and with Allen and Pondexter not expected to be out long, he's not worth an add in almost any league.
Nov 21 - 7:59 PM

Tony Allen (illness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

With Allen out, Courtney Lee is going to get all the minutes he can handle. Vince Carter could also see some extended minutes off the bench, but Lee offers the most upside. Allen went through parts of shootaround today, so he shouldn't be out much longer, and we'll consider him questionable Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.
Nov 21 - 7:57 PM

Quincy Pondexter (illness) will not play on Friday against the Celtics.

He has the nasty stomach bug now and could miss additional time because he doesn't get much playing time to begin with. Pondexter is only worth owning in very deep leagues.
Nov 21 - 7:55 PM

Courtney Lee (illness) will start against the Celtics on Friday.

He is over his illness just in time for a revenge game. Lee has been phenomenal all season, but he's obviously not going to stay this hot.
Nov 21 - 7:55 PM

Quincy Pondexter (illness) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Courtney Lee said that Pondexter is dealing with the worst part of the illness today, so it would be a bit shocking if he were to suit up. If Pondexter sits, there will be more minutes to go around for Vince Carter and Courtney Lee.
Nov 21 - 12:50 PM

Tony Allen (illness) left Friday morning's shootaround early, and remains questionable to suit up vs. the Celtics.

If Allen is unable to go Vince Carter would likely see an increase in his minutes. Carter was able to play 27 minutes off the bench during his last outing, but was only managed seven points, three assists, and one three-pointer. However, he does have a favorable matchup today vs. the Celtics, so he may be worth the risk in daily leagues.
Nov 21 - 12:48 PM

Jarnell Stokes (illness) will play Friday vs. the Celtics.

He'll be available to play but there's no guarantee he'll get off the bench. Stokes can be ignored in most leagues.
Nov 21 - 12:43 PM

Kosta Koufos (illness) will play Friday vs. the Celtics.

Koufos will play backup minutes behind Marc Gasol, and he can't be considered an asset in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Nov 21 - 12:41 PM

Jon Leuer (illness) will suit up for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Leuer is nothing more than a backup, and he's averaging 3.6 points and 2.6 rebounds on the season. As long as Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph are healthy, Leuer isn't going to be worth touching in standard leagues.
