Michael Beasley (foot) is listed as probable in the game notes for Friday against the Hawks.

He suffered what looked like a minor ankle tweak on Wednesday, but he did return and looked fine. Beasley sounds like he'll be a go and has played surprisingly well in his limited minutes. Expect him to play.

Dec 9 - 2:30 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo triple-doubled again during a 115-107 win over the Blazers on Wednesday, scoring 15 points with 12 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and four blocks.

That's triple-double No. 2 on the season. While the points, assists and boards are cool for Russell Westbrook, Antetokounmpo has been absurd on the defensive stats with 2.2 blocks and 2.3 steals per game. Only David Robinson, Hakeem Olajuwon and Gerald Wallace have averaged 2.0 blocks and 2.0 steals in a season. Giannis' high dimes tonight also get him over the 6.0 per game threshold. He's currently the No. 3 player in standard leagues and isn't going anywhere for a long, long time.
Dec 8 - 12:00 AM

Jabari Parker scored 27 points against the Blazers on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He's not just scoring at the rim anymore. Over his last nine, only 44.9 percent of his shots have been at the rim. He hasn't really shot the ball too well over that span with a 48.6 percent field goal percentage, averaging 19.8 points, 5.0 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.2 treys. Parker has posted sixth-round value on the season and could improve on that going forward.
Dec 7 - 11:48 PM

Greg Monroe scored 15 points against the Blazers on Wednesday with four rebounds, one assist and three steals in 23 minutes.

Coach Jason Kidd finally figured out his big man rotation. Monroe has played at least 20 minutes in each of his last five, averaging 10.8 points, 7.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 steals. He should be owned in all leagues.
Dec 7 - 11:42 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He seems to be out of his slump after a bad game against his former team on Nov. 29. In his three previous December games, Dellavedova averaged 11.7 points, 0.7 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.3 treys. He really only has late-round ceiling because Malcolm Brogdon isn't going away, but give him a look in deeper leagues.
Dec 7 - 11:36 PM

Michael Beasley scored 12 points with eight rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He did suffer a minor injury to his ankle in this one, but he did return and looked fine. Beasley's playing time has seen a slight increase over his last five games with 19.4 in that span, but he's not doing much outside of the 9.4 points per game.
Dec 7 - 11:30 PM

John Henson played 25 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with seven points, six rebounds and two blocks.

It wasn't the best game from Henson, but he's now played at least 21 minutes in each of his last six. In that span, he averaged 12.3 points, 7.0 boards, 0.5 steals and 2.8 blocks on 53.2 percent from the field and 75.0 percent from the line. He should be owned everywhere.
Dec 7 - 11:24 PM

Greg Monroe hit 5-of-9 shots for 10 points and 13 rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Monroe might not be fully back in Jason Kidd's good graces, but he is playing well right now, averaging 10.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 blocks off the bench over his last five. John Henson looks like the better player to own right now, but if you have been holding Monroe all season waiting for him to finally show up, it's happening.
Dec 5 - 11:27 PM

John Henson hit just 1-of-3 shots for eight points, five rebounds, a steal and three more blocks in Monday's tough 97-96 loss to the Spurs.

Henson was coming off a 20-point game with a nice line and has been playing much better lately. He's averaging 13.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.0 blocks over his last five games and is one of the hottest pickups in fantasy hoops right now, for good reason.
Dec 5 - 11:23 PM

Michael Beasley was ejected on Monday vs. the Spurs with two technical fouls.

He was involved in a shoving match with Davis Bertans because he took exception to a shove on Greg Monroe by Dewayne Dedmon. Beasley finished with eight points on 3-of-3 shooting with one rebound and one block in 13 minutes.
Dec 5 - 9:57 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo was up to his old tricks during a 112-103 victory over the Nets on Saturday, scoring 16 points with 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals, five blocks and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

That is his second 5x4 in his last three and third in his last six. Antetokounmpo matched his career high in blocks and his 2.2 per game on the year makes him just one of five players above the 2.0 plateau (Davis, Gobert, Whiteside and Turner). He's an incredible shot blocker with his wingspan and is a rim protector quite often, so blocking two per game could definitely happen this year. He's one of the most fun players to own in a long time with first-round value to go with it.
Dec 3 - 8:29 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored a season-high 18 points against the Nets on Saturday with two rebounds, six assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.

He was cooking late in the game with 12 of his 18 in the fourth to help his team get the win. Dellavedova's six makes from the line were a season high while his six makes from the field were, as well. He's going to be up-and-down and has a low upside, but he's worth a look.
Dec 3 - 8:23 PM

Greg Monroe scored 13 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one blocks and four steals

He finally seems to be out of the doghouse with coach Jason Kidd bumping Miles Plumlee out and going with a two-man rotation at his five spot. Monroe still hasn't been too great, averaging 9.6 points, 7.2 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.6 steals. He's still worth a pickup with even just 20 minutes per game.
Dec 3 - 8:19 PM

John Henson scored 20 points in 27 minutes against the Nets on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks.

What? Coach Jason Kidd is being consistent with his minutes at the five? Henson has played 25.5 minutes per game in his last four with fantastic averages of 14.8 points, 7.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 3.0 blocks and 0.5 steals. We all know Kidd can change his rotation as often as he changes his shirt, but Henson has to be owned everywhere now.
Dec 3 - 8:16 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo went berserk during a 111-93 win over the Nets on Thursday, scoring 23 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, four steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in just 30 minutes.

The steals numbers are off the charts and it's moved Giannis to No. 3 in steals per game while he's also fifth in blocks per outing. Antetokounmpo made a season-high two treys in this game and hit his first corner trey, which make have lead to some post-game talk on his shooting. After the game, Giannis said he's been invited to work out with Dirk Nowitzki next summer and Giannis also talked about his shot. "My main focus is to shoot without hesitating," Antetokounmpo said. "That's my main focus right now. I don't care if it goes in or it goes out. I just shoot. I have nothing to lose. Just let it fly." If he develops a strong shot, no team is safe.
