Derrick Favors had a quiet night vs. OKC on Wednesday, scoring 11 points and grabbing six rebounds with one steal, one block and zero turnovers in 36 minutes.

He made 5-of-9 shots and his efficiency can't be faulted, but fantasy owners have to be tired of his marginal role in Quin Snyder's offense. Favors remains a prime breakout candidate but he's averaging a mere 11.9 shots per game, which must increase for him to vault past his current top-50 fantasy valuation.

Gordon Hayward, who was held to six points vs. the Bulls on Monday, bounced back with 24 points, one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, three assists and four steals in Wednesday's road loss in Oklahoma City.

Hayward was solid from the field (8-of-15) but he made an uncharacteristic 7-of-14 free throws, dropping him from a career-best 85.9 percent FT average to 80.4 percent. He's notching career highs in virtually every category this season and the occasional hiccup should be easily overlooked by his fortunate fantasy owners.
Nov 27 - 12:08 AM

Alec Burks had 16 points, three rebounds, four assists and two steals in 35 minutes vs. the Thunder on Wednesday, making 6-of-14 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs in 35 minutes of action.

Burks is shooting just 38.7 percent from the field this season, compared to 45.7 percent last season. He's been steady enough for 14-team value and has enough upside to hang onto in shallower formats, but his owners will need to see some consistency in the next month.

Carrick Felix suffered a fractured patella and will be out indefinitely.

He's caught some really bad breaks in his two-year career. Felix is a bit like Corey Brewer for likely to do work in transition, but he's going to have a tough time getting playing time with all of these injuries.
Nov 26 - 4:48 PM

Rodney Hood was taking jump shots on Wednesday, which is a good sign as he recovers from a foot injury.

He wasn't supposed to be jumping last week, so this is a sign that things are heading in the right direction. There's still no timetable on his return.
Nov 26 - 1:50 PM

Jordan Hamilton is headed to the D-League and is now available on waivers.

Hamilton hadn't seen any game action before being released by the Jazz in early November and will now get some time to hone his craft in the D-League. The Lakers had previous expressed interest in the 24-year-old, but fantasy owners can feel free to ignore this situation for now.
Nov 25 - 9:24 AM

Derrick Favors scored 21 points on 10-of-17 shooting with a season-high 15 rebounds and one steal in Monday's 97-95 loss to the Bulls.

Favors is up-and-down a little bit but he's more or less playing near his ADP. He's averaging 15.6 points, 8.4 boards and a combined 2.2 steals and blocks per game, which has returned top 50-60 value on the season.
Nov 25 - 2:05 AM
Enes Kanter - F/C - Jazz

Enes Kanter scored 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block over 33 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls.

Kanter is averaging just 0.2 steals and 0.2 blocks per game, so if you're using him you probably wanted to uncork some cheap champagne tonight. He's more of a 14-team guy given his lack of statistical upside in standard leagues.
Nov 25 - 2:03 AM

Trey Burke scored 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting with three rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in Monday's tight loss to the Bulls.

Burke has battled back in 8-cat leagues with a top-120 value on the year, but in 9-cat leagues he needs a lot of help and sits at a meager top-160 value. He's still hitting just 34.6 percent from the field on the year, but has hit 16-of-28 shots in his last two games and might be ready to fix that.
Nov 25 - 2:01 AM

Derrick Favors double-doubled against the Pelicans during a 106-94 loss on Saturday with 13 points, 11 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes.

He had a front-row seat for the Anthony Davis Show, but Favors wasn't too bad on the offensive side of the ball. Favors has two sub-par games in a row and his foul shooting is coming down, but his owners shouldn't be overly concerned.
Nov 23 - 2:23 AM

Trey Burke shot the ball well against the Pelicans on Saturday, making 8-of-12 from the field for 20 points with four assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

Maybe his buzzer-beater at Madison Square Garden has carried over, but that's unlikely. Burke is still shooting just 32.0 percent from the field before this game, so he'll need to string together a few games before we say he's ready to take off.
Nov 23 - 2:21 AM

Alec Burks made 1-of-11 from the field against the Pelicans on Saturday for two points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and four turnovers.

No bueno. Burks has been trending down since a solid start and this is obviously his worst game. He'll get better, but fantasy owners can consider cutting him if there is a hot free agent out there.
Nov 23 - 2:18 AM

Gordon Hayward was terrific in a losing effort against the Pelicans on Saturday, making 9-of-16 from the field for 31 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He made 11-of-14 from the line, which serves as a great indicator of how aggressive he was tonight. Hayward adding some muscle to his frame was highly evident tonight and his new style should help him sustain a better shooting clip. The breakout is real.
Nov 23 - 2:16 AM

Derrick Favors scored 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

This was as good as it got in the starting lineup in yet another terrible basketball game on Friday. Enes Kanter scored 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and five turnovers but as usual had no steals or blocks, Trey Burke fell off a cliff with two points (1-of-8 FGs), five assists, one steal, and Alec Burks hit 3-of-10 shots for nine points, four boards and a three. Woof.
Nov 22 - 1:38 AM

Rudy Gobert scored 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, two steals and two blocks over 18 minutes in Friday's loss.

Gobert reminds owners of his upside with the outing, and after tonight he is returning top 145-165 value (9/8 cat) in just 16 mpg. With this type of floor it's hard to justify not stashing him.
