    • DeMarcus Cousins practices, plans to play
      DeMarcus Cousins (illness) practiced on Wednesday and plans to play against the Bucks on Thursday.

      Advice: The Kings will likely make a decision following shootaround on Thursday. Cousins has been out for over three weeks with viral meningitis and the Kings could limit him in his first game back, especially since his conditioning is not likely where it should be. His owners will want to check back tomorrow. Rotoworld.com

    • Pistons asked for Teague and Korver?
      The Pistons reportedly wanted Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver in exchange for Greg Monroe.

      Advice: The Pistons need help from beyond the arc and have some major issues at point guard, so it makes sense they would like to make this move. Of course, the Hawks already have a pretty good power forward and center combo, so there's really no way they'd agree to this. The Pistons will have to drop their asking price quite a bit here.

    • Taj Gibson listed as questionable for Thurs.
      Taj Gibson (right ankle) is listed as questionable to play against the Knicks on Thursday.

      Advice: It's apparently a new injury for Taj, so he could wind up missing this game. Gibson was very active on the glass in the past few games without Joakim Noah, but he'll move to the bench on Thursday. He is still worth owning in standard leagues. If he's out, Nikola Mirotic will have an uptick in value. Rotoworld.com

    • Budenholzer will monitor Jeff Teague
      Coach Mike Budenholzer said on Wednesday that the Hawks will "monitor [Jeff Teague] (hamstring, doubtful) over the next day or so and hope for the best."

      Advice: It sounds like he's out for tonight against the Cavs, but the Hawks are off until Saturday following tonight. Dennis Schroder is the favorite to pick up value, and his usage rate of 25.5 to go with a 32.4 assist percentage while he's out there bode very well for his outlook tonight. Shelvin Mack will also see a boost. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeff Teague (hamstring) is doubtful Wednesday
      Jeff Teague (hamstring) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

      Advice: Teague is said to be dealing with a left hamstring strain, and reportedly suffered the injury in Monday's game vs. the Bulls. Owners will want to check back prior to tip-off to confirm this news, but it appears that Dennis Schroder will likely get the nod in the starting lineup Wednesday. Owners in deeper leagues should pick up Schroder as a speculative add for short-term value, and should also give him a look as a sneaky daily plug-and-play. Rotoworld.com

    • J.R. Smith (foot) won't play on Thursday
      J.R. Smith (foot) will not play in Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

      Advice: It will be his fifth straight game out of the lineup and it is becoming pretty evident that this injury has become a real issue for him. Smith isn't worth owning in standard leagues as he has failed to succeed in the triangle offense and it is unclear when he will return to action. Tim Hardaway Jr. will play all the minutes he can handle Thursday and is worth a look in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergey Karasev (left oblique) out Wed
      Sergey Karasev (left oblique) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

      Advice: He is dealing with a strained left oblique and it is unclear when he will return to action. He matched his career-high of 11 points before leaving the game Tuesday, and he had started to come alive in the starting lineup for the Nets. However, owners in deepr leagues can now look elsewhere with this news, and we can expect Bojan Bogdanovic and Alan Anderson to benefit the most. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: You better believe that that Spurs are going to be cautious with him, and we wouldn't expect to see Parker back before he was 100 percent. Owners will have no choice but to be patient, and in the meantime Cory Joseph will continue to start and is worth a look in most leagues for short-term value. Rotoworld.com

      Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Tony Parker (hamstring) will not play against Memphis on Wednesday.

      Advice: This is just a reminder so owners can have a backup plan ready in time for Wednesday's tip-off. Cory Joseph is the obvious beneficiary in Parker's absence while Marco Belinelli and Manu Ginobili will see increase workloads in place of Leonard. We will update Leonard as needed and he is simply dealing with a sore hand and should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari (knee) will play Wednesday
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) will play on Wednesday vs. Houston.

      Advice: The Italian has been a ghost of the player he used to be this season, and has really struggled with his knee. Wilson Chandler is locked in as the starting small forward for the Nuggets, and unless he is traded there is not a lot of playing time available. Until Gallinari strings together a few good games and stays active, he won't be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Carl Landry scores 14 points off bench Tues
      Carl Landry scored 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting on Tuesday, adding four boards, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.

      Advice: Fresh off of a double-double in Saturday's game, Landry kept it rolling and was a spark off of the bench for the Kings. However, Landry doesn't have a large enough role to be considered in standard leagues, and can be safely ignored on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Evans disappoints in start Tuesday
      Reggie Evans was disappointing in a start on Tuesday, playing just 19 minutes and finishing with four points, six boards, one assist and one block.

      Advice: He rightfully replaced Ryan Hollins in the starting lineup, but failed to impress in what was an off night for the rebounding machine. DeMarcus Cousins (illness) could be back as soon as Thursday, so there is no reason for Evans to be owned outside of the deepest of leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lamb scores six points in return Tues
      Jeremy Lamb returned to action on Tuesday, scoring six points on 3-of-9 shooting to go with three boards in 15 minutes.

      Advice: He missed Sunday's game with a sore foot, but returned to his role off of the Thunder bench on Tuesday in disappointing fashion. Lamb is usually hit-or-miss, and he is too unreliable to be used in standard leagues. You can safely ignore him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Mirza Teletovic returns to action on Tuesday
      Mirza Teletovic returned to action on Tuesday, finishing with five points, one assist and one 3-pointer in 11 minutes.

      Advice: After missing the previous three games, it is not surprising to see the Nets ease him back into action. Teletovic should see his role increase again soon, and he deserves a long look in most leagues for his ability to knock down 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com

    • Mason Plumlee stays hot, scores 21 points
      Mason Plumlee stayed hot on Tuesday during a loss to the Heat, scoring 21 points to go with nine boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He was impressive once again on Tuesday and managed to connect on 8-of-12 from the field. Brook Lopez isn't expected to be re-evaluated until Saturday, so the window for playing time is still open for Plumlee. If you are in need of short-term value, Plumlee is definitely worth a look.

    • Mario Chalmers plays well off bench Tuesday
      Mario Chalmers played well in Tuesday's win against the Nets, scoring 10 points to go with seven boards, five assists and four steals in 31 minutes.

      Advice: Chalmers is tough to own when Dwyane Wade is active, but tonight was an exception. Mario was excellent on both ends of the floor and the four steals illustrates why he is so valuable in fantasy. He also shot 6-of-6 from the free throw line on the night, despite turning the ball over three times. He should be owned in all leagues, and will become a must-start player if Norris Cole goes down with an injury. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He was seen getting looked at on the sidelines before making his way back to the locker room, and it is unclear how severe the injury is. Karasev just recently moved into the starting lineup for the Nets, and has emerged as a decent option in deeper leagues. We should know more about his status shortly, but if he misses any time Bojan Bogdanovic and Alan Anderson will both benefit. Rotoworld.com

      J.R. Smith (foot) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, and his status for Thursday's game vs. Chicago remains uncertain.

      Advice: That means that Tim Hardway Jr. will get all the minutes he can handle, and he'll make for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Hardaway Jr. has gone for 18, 16, and 23 points in his last three outings while seeing his minutes in the 30s, and with Smith's status uncertain for Thursday, he makes for a decent add in most leagues.

      Tony Parker (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

      Advice: The Spurs are always going to be extra cautious with their aging veterans, and Cory Joseph will slide into the starting lineup with Parker sidelined. Parker's injury doesn't seem too serious, but there is currently no timetable set for his return. Joseph will sustain some short-term value as long as Parker is sidelined, and will make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

The Spurs are currently awaiting the results of further testing that is being performed today in San Antonio, and we'll keep you posted as soon as details become available. Leonard was seen holding his hand and wincing in pain throughout Monday's game, and with the Spurs main focus set on a title run, he could miss some extended time here. Marco Bellineli and Manu Ginobili will see some increased opportunity with Leonard sidelined. Rotoworld.com

      Greg Monroe denied asking the Pistons for a trade and said that he would never initiate trade talks.

      Advice: Responding to a report that said he has asked the Pistons for a trade, Monroe said there is no truth to those rumors. "If they feel the need to come to me, obviously, I would have to have that discussion," he said. "But that discussion would have to be initiated by them. It would never be initiated by me." We'll see if there's fire to go with this smoke soon enough, but Jonas Jerebko and Kyle Singler would be the fantasy beneficiaries if a trade does go down. Rotoworld.com

      Kawhi Leonard scored 21 points against the Blazers during a 108-95 loss on Monday to go with nine rebounds, four assists and one block in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He made 7-of-18 from the field and did a lot of his scoring off the dribble. His usage rate tonight was higher than any game in his career with at least 15 minutes on the court. On the downside, he is shooting much worse on pull-ups this season, which explains the 6.8 percent dip in field goal percentage. Leonard has been a top-20 player on the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Cousins could play on Thursday vs. Bucks
      DeMarcus Cousins (viral meningitis) could play on Thursday against the Bucks, but his minutes would be limited.

      Advice: Cousins is in the middle of a storm right now and it will be extremely interesting to watch how he reacts as chess pieces appear to be moving wildly around him without his input. To his credit, he has taken the high road while expressing his displeasure with the situation, and if he keeps his head down and plays hard he'll probably come out of this situation smelling better than most.

      Advice: He was very busy in the low post on both ends for the Bulls. Gibson is likely looking at another start with Joakim Noah (ankle) still on the mend. In his previous eight starts, he averaged 14.5 points, 7.6 boards, 1.6 blocks and 0.6 steals in 35.3 minutes. He's a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com

    • Pistons asking for a 1st-round pick on Monroe
      The Pistons are reportedly asking for a first-round pick in exchange for Greg Monroe.

      Advice: It's pretty clear that the Pistons are not going to bring him back after he signed a qualifying offer over the summer. The Pistons are also one of the worst teams in the NBA with a 13-game losing streak being snapped last week -- they're on a two-game winning streak now. If Monroe is dealt, Jonas Jerebko and Kyle Singler would benefit most. Monroe would likely lose value. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Smith was announced as a starter on Sunday, but then he was ruled out just moments before tipoff. Considering he's dealing with a plantar fascia tear, it's going to be an issue of pain tolerance for Smith that will determine his availability moving forward.

    • Kawhi Leonard (hand) just misses 5x5 line
      Kawhi Leonard (bruised hand) set a career high with six blocks during Sunday's win over the Nuggets, while also tying his career high with five steals.

      Advice: Leonard also scored 18 points with eight rebounds, four assists and only one turnover. He's playing a career-high 31.9 minutes per game this season, racking up elite fantasy value with 14.8 points (46.0 percent FGs, 75.0 percent FTs), 1.0 threes, 7.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.5 blocks. Those numbers aren't likely to dip as the season progresses but they could easily improve, giving Leonard nice upside after a relatively slow start to the season. Tonight's performance made him the first Spurs player since David Robinson in 1992 to record six blocks and five steals in the same game. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He is going to be capable of doing this every time that Brook Lopez (back) or Kevin Garnett (foot) misses a game so this line is not surprising.

      Advice: He had a mini-slump coming into tonight, averaging just 8.5 points per game. Teague's offense has come around and he's improved off the dribble a ton, so there's no signs of him regressing.

      Advice: It sounds like a minor injury, but the Knicks aren't going to be in any rush to bring him back. Smith doesn't have a history of plantar fascia issues, though. While he's out, Tim Hardaway Jr. will get some extra shots to play with. Rotoworld.com

    • Mirza Teletovic (hip) is questionable on Sat
      Mirza Teletovic (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Hornets.

      Advice: He has already missed the last two games but could be in for some serious playing time if he is feeling up to it with Brook Lopez (back) out of the lineup and Kevin Garnett dealing with an ailing foot. We should know more shortly and owners will have no choice but to wait patently until we get official confirmation. Mason Plumlee would see all the minutes he could handle if Teletovic sits this one out. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari (knee) doubtful for Saturday
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

      Advice: We would be surprised if he played considering his knee has been a nuisance all season. Gallinari has yet to perform up to his usual standards and we don't see him becoming relevant in standard leagues this season given how well Wilson Chandler has played. Rotoworld.com

    • Parker plays just 18 minutes on Friday
      Tony Parker (hamstring) returned to action in Friday's home loss to the Lakers, playing just 18 minutes with five points, two assists and one steal.

      Advice: Parker didn't play after the third quarter and he didn't look particularly good tonight, so it's hard to know if he aggravated the injury, was rusty or if Pop just wanted to ride Cory Joseph (16 points, four rebounds, five assists, four steals, one block). We'll let you know when the Spurs update everybody on his status. Rotoworld.com

      Mario Chalmers hit just 1-of-7 shots (including a three) for four points, three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: We know how Dwyane Wade essentially ruins things for Chalmers, but he has been worth owning on the whole this year and his upside when Wade goes out is worth the roster slot. At least for now. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He did a very good job on the defensive end and kept his fouls down. Plumlee will likely get a couple more starts with Brook Lopez (back) and Mirza Teletovic (hip) on the shelf. If you're looking for a center, give him a look. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The Hawks are on fire and have won nine in a row to vault themselves to the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. Teague has been on a roller coaster in his last five with averages of 12.2 points, 3.0 boards, 6.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.0 triples. He's a must-start guy right now. Rotoworld.com

If the game is competitive Parker could have a very nice outing, but with the Lakers there's always a chance of a blowout, which would find Parker quickly seated on the bench.

      Advice: It will be his second game out of the lineup, but X-rays were negative. He's said that his heel is improving, but he's scheduled to get an MRI to make sure nothing is serious. Smith has his lowest true shooting percentage since his rookie season and has looked lost in the triangle offense.

    • Shaw explains why Gallinari's PT is down
      Nuggets' head coach Brian Shaw explained during a recent interview why Danilo Gallinari's playing time has been down this season.

      Advice: "[Gallinari] understands that if Wilson [Chandler] wasn't playing as well as he is playing at that position, then maybe I'd let him out there and try to play through it a little bit more," said Shaw. "But Wilson is playing well, and he's not, so that's why Wilson is out there." Gallinari's numbers are way down this season, and he's shooting a career-worst 32.8 percent from the field. He's not going to get things turned around anytime soon, and belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: With both Anthony and Smith being considered doubtful for Friday's game, it's looking like Amare Stoudemire, Iman Shumpert, and Tim Hardaway Jr. will have their hands full.

      Advice: Leonard was withheld from Wednesday's game as a precaution, and his ability to play on Friday will likely be determined by pain tolerance, according to a source with knowledge of the test results.

      Advice: Detroit was losing with Monroe in the starting lineup and they're still losing with him on the bench, and coach Stan Van Gundy seems to be facing a no-win situation with the roster he (mostly) inherited this summer.

      Advice: He missed both of his shots from the field and has now gone scoreless in back-to-back games. If you were waiting for a reason to drop Gallinari, this is it. He's very unlikely to be worth owning in the next couple months. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeff Teague scores 21 in a full line
      Jeff Teague made 8-of-11 from the field for 21 points during a 108-92 win over the Pacers on Monday with three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The Hawks have been on a tear with a seven-game winning streak and hold the tiebreaker over the Wizards for the top spot in the Atlantic division. Teague has really come on as a scorer this year and getting to the line more has helped his scoring output. He's a top-15 fantasy point guard. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Evans will start against the Jazz
      Reggie Evans will start against the Jazz on Monday.

      Advice: The Kings have been bringing him off the bench, but the minutes have been there. Evans won't really do much outside of grab some boards, so he's not a great pickup in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarcus Cousins possibly out until January?
      DeMarcus Cousins (illness) could possibly be out until January.

      Advice: He has viral meningitis and will not return in the next 10 days at the minimum. Cousins is believed to be very ill, but he did go through a practice last week because he wasn't diagnosed at that time. Since then, he's been hospitalized and doesn't have a timetable to return. Jason Thompson has stepped up while Reggie Evans, Ryan Hollins and Derrick Williams are also helping out. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarcus Cousins (illness) ruled out Monday
      The Sacramento Kings announced that DeMarcus Cousins (illness) will be held out for Monday's game and could miss another 7-10 days.

      Advice: This is a tough blow for owners, and they need to have a backup plan ready for the upcoming week. Cousins could potentially be out until Dec. 16th according to this timetable, but we should know more later in the week. In the meantime, Jason Thompson has benefited the most in Cousins' absence, while Reggie Evans and Ryan Hollins will also see increased roles. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeff Teague coming back to Earth a bit
      Jeff Teague made 4-of-13 from the field against the Nuggets on Sunday during a 96-84 win with nine points, two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He's been in single-digit scoring for three of his last five, aveaging 13.0 points, 2.6 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 triples. Teague is posting career highs in field goal percentage, free throw percentage and 3-point percentage this season and is having a bit of a breakout season. Rotoworld.com

    • Mason Plumlee headed for more playing time
      Mason Plumlee is expected to get more playing time with Brook Lopez (back) out for at least one week.

      Advice: The Nets do have four games this week and perhaps Lopez misses even more time. Plumlee has been a disappointing guy on the season with season averages of just 4.8 points, 4.7 boards and 0.7 blocks. He's worth owning in most leagues despite his woeful foul shooting. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarcus Cousins could miss another week
      DeMarcus Cousins (illness) is still bothered by headaches and could miss 7-10 more days.

      Advice: That doesn't bode well for his chances to play on Monday. Cousins has been out for five games with viral meningitis and was even hospitalized. His fantasy owners will have to check back tomorrow for an update, but it would appear they'll need to come up with a contingency plan. Jason Thompson has stepped up while Reggie Evans and Ryan Hollins are getting more run. Rotoworld.com
