Isaiah Thomas (ankle) is questionable to face the Nuggets on Friday.

Nov 28 - 2:43 PM

Mo Williams (illness) will return to the lineup against the Lakers.

He is not expected to be limited. Williams traveling with the team on Wednesday was a great sign he would be ready to go and his fantasy owners should plug him back into their lineups. Zach LaVine will take a hit while Andrew Wiggins and Corey Brewer should have less ball-handling responsibility.
Nov 28 - 2:40 PM

Anderson Varejao (rib contusion) is questionable to play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He did not practice on Friday, but this injury doesn't sound too serious. Of course, Varejao has missed a lot of games in his career and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss time. If he does, Tristan Thompson would likely start while the Cavs could get Brendan Haywood in the mix.
Nov 28 - 2:31 PM

Tony Wroten will miss at least one week with a sprained right knee.

He played through this injury on Wednesday and is going to be re-evaluated on Dec. 5. Wroten was turning the ball over a ton and his fantasy owners in standard leagues shouldn't have a problem cutting him. Meanwhile, K.J. McDaniels has a chance to get in the starting lineup now while Alexey Shved could get more run.
Nov 28 - 2:27 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is doubtful to face the Spurs on Friday.

His knee injury is not an issue, but now the Kings are hit with a sudden illness for their team's MVP. Cousins has eight double-doubles in a row and the Kings are going to be a mess on offense even if Rudy Gay (Achilles) plays. If he's out, it'll likely be a group effort of Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams, Carl Landry and Reggie Evans.
Nov 28 - 2:22 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) went through a full contact practice on Friday.

The Heat will not commit to his status for Sunday, but this is obviously a great sign. Wade has been out for seven games with his hamstring injury and it's led to a lot of production out of Mario Chalmers in that stretch. Wade was also at 32.4 minutes per game before the injury and that is likely to drop. His owners will want to check back on Sunday.
Nov 28 - 2:15 PM

Martell Webster (back) is not going through a full practice on Friday.

He is getting closer to a return and was cleared for contact last week. The Wizards have given Rasual Butler some minutes in the past few games and it's pretty clear Webster will get a sizable portion of minutes because of his shooting. We still don't have a concrete target date, so he's not worth stashing in most leagues right now.
Nov 28 - 2:12 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said Reggie Jackson and Russell Westbrook will get "a lot of minutes" together.

Westbrook will likely see minutes around 30, so Jackson should get a high usage in his 18 minutes or so in the second unit. Plus, it looks like Jackson will get around 10-15 minutes next to Westbrook, which puts him in the 30-minute neighborhood as well. With Kevin Durant (foot) still out, Jackson should still be a must-start guy in most formats.
Nov 28 - 2:02 PM

The Kings have sent Eric Moreland back to Reno for another D-League stint.

Moreland has played a total of 34 seconds for the Kings this season, and that tells you about all you need to know about his non-existent fantasy value.
Nov 28 - 1:57 PM

Cory Joseph (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

Joseph is averaging a meager 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this season, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues.
Nov 28 - 1:48 PM

Raymond Felton (right ankle) went through shootaround Friday, but it will be up to head coach Rick Carlisle whether he is listed on the active roster.

Felton has yet to suit up for a single game this season, so even if he's added to the active roster, there are no guarantees he'll step foot on the court. Even with Jameer Nelson (back) listed as out tonight, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea look like much better options than Felton.
Nov 28 - 1:43 PM

JaVale McGee (tibia) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Suns.

Timofey Mozgov, J.J. Hickson, and Jusuf Nurkic will continue to man the center position in Denver, but Mozgov is the guy to own out of the three. McGee has been a constant disappointment in both reality and fantasy, and he should remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Danilo Gallinari (knee) said that he is fine, and will play Friday vs. the Suns.

Danilo only managed to play 8.7 minutes during his last outing, checking out due to soreness in his surgically repaired left knee, but his return to the lineup tonight is an encouraging sign. He's by no means a must-own player in standard leagues, but he was starting to get it going before his injury scare on Wednesday, so if you're in a deeper league and have available roster space, stashing him wouldn't be the worst idea.
Nov 28 - 1:29 PM

Head coach Steve Kerr is considering David Lee (hamstring) doubtful to play Friday or Sunday.

Lee will most likely return for one of the Warriors upcoming home games, either Tuesday vs. Orlando, or Thursday vs. New Orleans. With the Warriors currently sitting on a record of 12-2, and Draymond Green excelling as the starting power forward, there's just no need for Lee to rush a return. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation upon his return, and there are no guarantees he will take the starting job away from Green.
Nov 28 - 1:19 PM

Kemba Walker (thigh, face) expected to play Friday vs. the Warriors.

Walker took a knee to the thigh, and an elbow to the face during his last outing, but it didn't cause him to miss any time. Charlotte beat reporter Rick Bonnell is expecting him to play, and he tends to be very accurate on these things. It's safe to assume that Walker will give it a go, so go ahead and get him in your active lineups.
