Date: Team: Pos:

Jrue Holiday helped close the door on Saturday's 106-94 win over the Jazz with 19 points, six rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He made Trey Burke look like he belonged in the D-League and just roasted him late. Holiday is really starting to come on and he's going to have some extra shots come his way with Eric Gordon (shoulder) out. He's been a top-10 guard before and that's possible this season.

Ryan Anderson made 2-of-15 from the field against the Jazz on Saturday for five points with six rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

He is going to get more minutes with Eric Gordon (shoulder) out, so this is a prime opportunity to send a buy-low offer. Anderson will certainly get it turned around after his two games without a trey.
Nov 23 - 2:10 AM

Tyreke Evans came on late against the Jazz on Saturday, finishing with nine points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and two turnovers.

He continues to struggle with his shot, but the Pelicans will have to play him more at shooting guard now that Eric Gordon (shoulder) is down. Evans could flirt with top-60 value now with a lot of minutes on his plate.
Nov 23 - 2:08 AM

Austin Rivers played 33 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with eight points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Eric Gordon went down and Rivers is going to get minutes. He's been one of the most inefficient players in the NBA lately, but the opportunity is there. Feel free to give him a look in deeper leagues.
Nov 23 - 2:04 AM

Anthony Davis scored a career-high 43 points on 16-of-23 from the field against the Jazz on Saturday to go with 14 boards, two steals and one block.

We promise this is not from a video game.
Nov 23 - 2:01 AM

The Pelicans have confirmed that Eric Gordon separated his left shoulder during Saturday's game.

The type of separation will determine how long Gordon will miss, but his timetable will likely be measured in weeks or months, rather than days. Austin Rivers started the second half at SG and guys like Jimmer Fredette, Darius Miller and Russ Smith could be thrust into bigger roles for however long Gordon is sidelined. Coach Monty Williams could also shift Tyreke Evans to SG and move John Salmons or Luke Babbitt into the SF job, but the fallout is of much greater interest in deep leagues than standard 12-team formats. Stay tuned.

Eric Gordon exited Saturday's game with a left shoulder injury after getting caught up going around a screen.

We'll wait for an update before speculating on the severity, but Gordon's injury history speaks for itself. Check back soon for updates.

Omer Asik (back) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

He had an aggravation in Friday warmups and didn't have much of a chance to play tonight. With Asik out, Alexis Ajinca will get some extra playing time, but he's not a great fantasy option. Asik could miss more time and he's not a must-own player.
Nov 22 - 7:36 PM

Omer Asik (back) is doubtful to play vs. the Jazz on Saturday.

Asik aggravated his lower back while warming up prior to Friday's game and it sounds like he'll miss his third straight game in Utah, but there's still a chance he'll recover in time to play. Alexis Ajinca has been very quiet as a fill-in starter in Asik's absence and there are no real fantasy winners in this scenario.
Nov 22 - 1:31 PM

Ryan Anderson did not make any 3-pointers in a bad 117-97 loss to the Nuggets on Friday with 10 points three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

He made just 2-of-11 from the field in his worst game of the season. Anderson was rolling with 3.0 triples per game before tonight and he'll get it turned around against the Bucks on Saturday.
Nov 22 - 1:23 AM

Alexis Ajinca started against the Nuggets on Friday with 12 points, eight rebounds and one assist in 21 minutes.

Omer Asik (back) aggravated his injury in pre-game warmups, so we could see Ajinca in the starting lineup for a couple more games. He's not going to be as good as he was tonight, so only owners in deep leagues should have interest here.
Nov 22 - 1:19 AM

Anthony Davis scored 18 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 32 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

This would have been a great line for any player, but Davis has completely spoiled his fantasy owners. He might turn it around and go for a 30-point, 20-board, 10-block game on Saturday against the Jazz or something.
Nov 22 - 1:16 AM

Omer Asik (back) will not play against the Nuggets on Friday.

He aggravated his back injury in warmups and chances are he is going to miss more time. Asik isn't a must-own player anymore considering he doesn't have a high upside. Alexis Ajinca will start again, but doesn't have much fantasy value.
Nov 21 - 8:39 PM

Omer Asik (back) is expected to start against the Nuggets on Friday.

He was questionable for tonight after missing the last two games. Asik probably won't see many minutes and figures to be in the mid 20s tonight. He's not a must-start player even in a favorable matchup. Alexis Ajinca could lose some minutes.
Nov 21 - 7:33 PM

Omer Asik (back) is questionable to face the Nuggets on Friday.

He has missed his last two games and he is probably a little closer to doubtful. The Pelicans do not need him since they can just play Anthony Davis at center. Alexis Ajinca may get minutes, but Ryan Anderson is probably the biggest beneficiary.
