  • Vucevic will play through knee soreness
    Nikola Vucevic banged knees on Saturday vs. the Jazz, but he will play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He said his knee was sore on Sunday, but there's no word of any restrictions. The Magic will watch him closely and this makes him a risky DFS play, but season-long owners can go ahead and throw him into their lineups. 33 minutes ago
  • Jonas Jerebko (illness) is good to go Monday
    Jonas Jerebko (illness) is good to go on Monday vs. Philly.

    Advice: He participated in the morning shootaround and will play despite being under the weather. His upside will be limited with Thabo Sefolosha playing, so he doesn't belong in most fantasy lineups anyways. 36 minutes ago
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) is available Monday
    Jerryd Bayless (wrist) is available for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: This was the expectation after coach Brett Brown said he was good to go after practicing on Sunday. Bayless could have restrictions and T.J. McConnell has looked solid as the backup PG, so most fantasy owners can use a wait-and-see approach here. 38 minutes ago
  • Richaun Holmes (illness) questionable Monday
    Richaun Holmes (gastroenteritis) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Utah.

    Advice: He hasn't been getting much playing time, but his status is worth monitoring closely because Joel Embiid is also questionable due to left knee soreness. Holmes would be a great streaming option if he plays and Embiid doesn't, but look for Amir Johnson, Dario Saric and maybe even Jahlil Okafor to step up if both of these guys can't go. 42 minutes ago
  • Marvin Williams (quad) probable Monday
    Marvin Williams (quad contusion) went through the morning shootaround on Monday.

    Advice: He's listed as probable to face the Wolves, but we'll have to wait until after warmups before we get the official word. If Williams can't play, Frank Kaminsky would get a lot of burn, and we could see Cody Zeller play some PF as well. Williams has been a disappointment this season as his counting stats are down across the board with 9.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 triples, 0.7 blocks and 0.5 steals. 57 minutes ago
  • Atkinson praises Allen's performance Sunday
    Jarrett Allen scored six points (3-of-4 FGs) with three rebounds and one block vs. the Warriors on Sunday, impressing coach Kenny Atkinson in the process.

    Advice: "Jarrett coming in, his ability to roll to the rim makes it a little harder for them to switch when you have a seven-footer out there that can put pressure on the rim," he said. Atkinson added that he "can’t wait until he really hits his peak" and said this game was a glimpse of what he can offer in the future. The rookie is loaded with shot-blocking upside, but should be treated like a stash until the Nets unleash him. Today, 7:40 am
  • Magic recall Wesley Iwundu and Birch
    The Magic have recalled Wesley Iwundu and Khem Birch from the G-League.

    Advice: Birch has played six total minutes this season and Iwundu has played a total of 25. Unless there is garbage time, don't expect either rookie to play. Today, 7:20 am
  • McRoberts (lower extremity injury) out Monday
    Josh McRoberts (lower extremity injury) will not play on Monday vs. Boston.

    Advice: He's yet to play this season and is still considered out indefinitely. When McRoberts is cleared, he probably won't have a role on the rebuilding Mavs. Today, 7:17 am
  • Seth Curry (leg) ruled out for Monday
    Seth Curry (leg) will not play on Monday vs. Boston.

    Advice: The Mavs continue to list him as out and he's considered week-to-week. Once Curry is cleared to return, Yogi Ferrell, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris are all candidates to lose minutes. Today, 7:08 am
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. could sit on Monday?
    Tim Hardaway Jr. (foot) said his sore foot "got worse and worse and worse" by trying to play through the pain.

    Advice: "I think it was just nagging, just nagging pain right there and me continuing to play on it, it got worse," he said. "Just not really taking it serious. I’m thinking, ‘I’m strong enough, able enough to go out there and compete, so it’s not really that much. I don’t feel nothing as bad, so no need for me to get it right.’" X-rays were negative, but THJ was absent at Sunday's practice and will see how he feels on Monday morning at the shootaround before determining his status. If THJ is out, Courtney Lee will get more shots and rookie Damyean Dotson might enter the rotation. Today, 6:24 am
  • Josh Hart was signed by LAK on Sunday November 19. Yesterday, 11:54 pm
  • Mason Plumlee returned to action on Sunday November 19. Yesterday, 11:54 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma hits 7-of-11 shots for 17 points
    Kyle Kuzma finished Sunday's win vs. the Nuggets with 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting, three 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Luke Walton reportedly "challenged Kuzma to focus on his all-around game" prior to this contest, and he yanked him early tonight after some ill-advised shots. The playing time was easily Kuzma's lowest in November, but nothing suggests this will become a trend. He'll clear 30 minutes vs. the Bulls on Tuesday and remains a solid option in almost every fantasy format, despite a lack of defensive stats. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Lonzo Ball triple-doubles in Lakers' home win
    Lonzo Ball posted the second triple-double of his NBA career on Sunday with 11 points, 16 rebounds, 11 assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers snapped a two-game losing streak tonight and Ball continues to be a fantasy dynamo, with the glaring exception of percentages (30.8% FGs and 46.2% FTs). In every other respect he's been awesome, averaging 6.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.1 threes and 0.9 blocks. His fantasy value hinges on each league's scoring settings -- if you can ignore percentages, the 20-year-old is already a stud. Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Mason Plumlee starts 2nd half for Jokic
    Mason Plumlee started the second half of Sunday's game in place of Nikola Jokic (ejection), finishing with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Jokic's ejection was questionable, at best, and there's almost no way that he'll face further punishment from the league. As such, there's no reason to think Plumlee will help fantasy owners vs. the Kings on Monday. He made 4-of-6 shots tonight, but emphasized one of his fantasy weaknesses with a 2-of-10 mark at the FT line. Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Trey Lyles plays well w/ Millsap (wrist) out
    Trey Lyles took advantage of expanded minutes with Paul Millsap (wrist) leaving early on Sunday, posting 10 points, eight rebounds and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes.

    Advice: Lyles has scored more than five points just twice this season, but he'd be worth a speculative pickup if Millsap is ruled out for an extended period. To be clear, Millsap is just day-to-day as we await test results, so there's no immediate value to be found here. Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) remains questionable
    Jerryd Bayless (wrist) is still listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Utah.

    Advice: Coach Brett Brown is expecting him to play and it's a good sign that Bayless was able to participate in Sunday's practice. If Bayless is able to play, that would eat into the minutes of guys like J.J. Redick, T.J. McConnell and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. He's more of a deep-league fantasy asset and could be limited on Monday. Yesterday, 10:59 am
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. (foot) questionable Monday
    Tim Hardaway Jr. (foot) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He had X-rays after Friday's game, but they came back negative and was diagnosed with a sore left foot. Hardaway said he's not sure how he suffered this mysterious injury, but he said it's been bothering him since Thursday morning. THJ did not practice on Sunday, but check back on Monday morning to see if he's able to go through shootaround. If he can't play, rookie Damyean Dotson might get an opportunity to see minutes. Yesterday, 8:22 am
  • Richaun Holmes gets all the C2 minutes
    Richaun Holmes scored six points with four rebounds, one assist and one block in 15 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He played 100 percent of the backup center minutes and hopefully this will continue. Holmes brings a lot of energy, he defends the 3-point line well for a five man, and the 76ers love to throw him lobs. If he can somehow keep his minutes at 15-20 every night, he is worth owning in 12-team leagues because he's fantasy basketball's best handcuff. Saturday, 7:39 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko scores 15
    Jonas Jerebko scored a season-high 15 points with six rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

    Advice: He's been a sneaky beneficiary from the Rudy Gobert (knee) injury. In those five games, Jerebko averaged 8.8 points, 3.6 boards, 1.6 treys and 0.6 steals. He can probably flirt with this output for the next couple weeks, so give him a look this appeals to you. Saturday, 7:01 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores eight points
    Nikola Vucevic scored eight points during a 126-85 loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding two rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three steals in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Hey, at least the defensive stats were there. This was arguably his worst game as Derrick Favors dominated him on both ends. Vucevic's October was obviously unsustainable overall, but he's still hanging 1.7 treys per game in November to help him get to 14 per night. The Magic offense overall has really flattened out, but Vooch should still be able to flirt with top-40 value going forward. Saturday, 6:44 pm
  • Mason Plumlee (core strain) now probable
    Updating a previous item, Mason Plumlee (core strain) is probable to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

    Advice: He was questionable earlier this afternoon, but he should be good to go. Expect him to back up Nikola Jokic for 13-15 minutes unless there's a blowout. He's not really a great add in fantasy while Jokic is healthy. Saturday, 1:30 pm
  • Mason Plumlee (core strain) questionable
    Mason Plumlee (core strain) is questionable to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

    Advice: After an MRI earlier this week, he did play 19 minutes on Friday. If Plumlee is out for this one, Kenneth Faried would likely pick up some extra minutes at the five. Wilson Chandler could also play some four, which may open up minutes for guys like Malik Beasley or Juancho Hernangomez. Saturday, 12:27 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) ruled out Saturday
    Jerryd Bayless (wrist) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Warriors and is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Utah.

    Advice: The questionable tag for Monday is a good sign, as it confirms that Bayless is moving in the right direction. He will eat into the minutes of J.J. Redick, T.J. McConnell and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot upon his return. Saturday, 8:41 am
  • Lonzo Ball to stay remain in starting lineup
    Coach Luke Walton said he is not considering moving Lonzo Ball out of the starting lineup.

    Advice: "He's our starting point guard," Walton said after practice earlier this week. "So there's no discussion, no talks as of now of moving Lonzo to the bench. Nah. He's our starting point guard." Ball had been benched in the fourth quarters of the Lakers win on Monday and their loss on Wednesday. However, Ball closed out the game on Friday, despite continued struggles with his shooting. Ball's rebounding and assist numbers remain strong, but his poor percentages hurt his value. He currently ranks outside the top-150 in nine-category fantasy leagues. Saturday, 6:59 am
  • Lonzo Ball scores six points vs. Suns
    Lonzo Ball scored just six points with six rebounds, six assists, a career-high five steals, one block and three turnovers vs. the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: Ball's best game of the season came against the Suns when he had 29 points against them on Oct. 20, but it's pretty much been downhill since. He finished 3-of-7 from the field and missed both of his free throws, and it's a concern that he managed just six points against the tiny backcourt combo of Tyler Ulis and Mike James. On the bright side, at least he closed this game after getting benched in the fourth quarter of his previous two games. Friday, 10:50 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma scores career-high 30 points
    Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 30 points in Friday's 122-113 loss to Phoenix.

    Advice: Wow. He started this game 0-of-6 at halftime, but finished 11-of-23 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with 10 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. This was his sixth game of the season with 20+ points which is more than any other rookie, and there's no way that coach Luke Walton can justify taking him out the starting lineup with Larry Nance (hand) nearing a return. He doesn't get many defensive stats, but he's still a must-start player in all formats. Friday, 10:35 pm
  • Mason Plumlee scores six
    Mason Plumlee scored six points with six rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: He had an MRI on his core, but he didn't need to miss time. Plumlee does get some PF minutes next to Nikola Jokic, but there isn't much upside here. Friday, 10:28 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko scores seven points
    Jonas Jerebko scored seven points in a start against the Nets on Friday, adding one rebound, two assists and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes.

    Advice: The Jazz didn't start him in the second half because they came out flat to start the game. Plus, Thabo Sefolosha (knee) not playing in this game is part of the reason he saw this much run. He's not much of an add in most leagues. Friday, 8:16 pm
  • X-rays negative on Tim Hardaway Jr.'s foot
    X-rays taken on Tim Hardaway Jr.'s left foot came back negative.

    Advice: The Knicks are calling his injury a sore left foot for now, but it's a little concerning that he needed X-rays. THJ checked out of this game for good with three minutes to go in the fourth, but it was garbage time at that point and it's a good sign that he was playing through it. We'll put him on the injury report until we get an update at Saturday's practice. He finished with 13 points (5-of-11 FGs), five rebounds, one assist, three steals and three triples in 33 minutes. If THJ does end up missing time, we might get an extended look at rookie Damyean Dotson. Friday, 7:07 pm
  • Mason Plumlee (core strain) expected to play
    Mason Plumlee (core strain) is expected to play on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: He had an MRI and it came back clean, and coach Mike Malone said it's just about him playing through the pain. Plumlee is only a deep-league fantasy asset as he's averaging just 15.4 minutes per game as Nikola Jokic's backup. Friday, 5:50 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko and Hood starting on Friday
    The Jazz will start Donovan Mitchell, Rodney Hood, Joe Ingles, Jonas Jerebko and Derrick Favors on Friday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: The Jazz are missing Ricky Rubio (Achilles), Thabo Sefolosha (knee) and Rudy Gobert (knee) tonight. Jerebko is worth a look as a 3-point specialist with six triples in his last two games, but he's basically a one-trick pony in fantasy. Friday, 4:37 pm
  • Mason Plumlee (core strain) is questionable
    Mason Plumlee (core strain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: This is a new injury for Plumlee and it probably happened on Monday with only six minutes against the Blazers. If Plumlee can't play, Kenneth Faried would likely pick up the 10-15 minutes behind Nikola Jokic at center -- Jokic could get in foul trouble against DeMarcus Cousins. Plus, the Nuggets do use two-center lineups at times, so there could be minutes for the perimeter players with Wilson Chandler playing more four at times. Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Lakers want Ball to improve shot selection
    Coach Luke Walton said he wants Lonzo Ball to improve his shot selection.

    Advice: Ball has struggled mightily with his shot all season and has been benched in the fourth quarter in each of the Lakers last two games. Walton told reporters that some of Ball's 3-point attempts have been forced and not within the flow of the offense. "If he’s going to his left and they go under (a screen) and he’s in rhythm and wants to pull up and shoot that 3, then we’re good with that. That’s what we want," said Walton. Ball will look to snap out of his slump Friday night vs. the Suns. Friday, 7:02 am
  • Seth Curry (leg) listed as out Friday
    Seth Curry (leg) is listed as out for Friday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: We keep hearing that he's making good progress, but the Mavs have every reason to proceed with caution. There's still a good chance that we'll see Curry at some point in November, though. Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea will continue to play extended minutes in Dallas, but Barea has been the better option in deeper leagues. Thursday, 9:32 am
  • Kyle Kuzma scores career-high 24 points
    Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 24 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been on Kuz control since Larry Nance Jr. (hand) went down in the first game this month. In November, Kuzma has averaged 16.9 points, 8.4 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.3 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.0 treys in 35.1 minutes per game. The Lakers starters actually haven't been bad this month, so Kuzma could still hold his starting job once Nance is back. Besides his lack of defensive stats, he should be owned in standard leagues. Wednesday, 10:52 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic double-doubles w/ four dimes
    Nikola Vucevic posted his fifth double-double of the season on Wednesday with 11 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Vuc played 31 minutes during tonight's road loss, which is a great sign after he played 27 or fewer minutes in Orlando's previous three games. His 3-pointers have spiked this season but most owners would rather see their center blocking shots, and Vuc is averaging a mere 0.2 swats in his past 10 games. He's been a terrific overall value this year, of course, so we'll cut him some slack. Wednesday, 10:44 pm
  • Big Benching Brand: Lonzo doesn't play in 4Q
    Lonzo Ball got benched again on Wednesday during a loss to the 76ers, making 1-of-9 from the field for two points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Uh oh. He didn't play in final 16:04 tonight, and didn't play in the final 14:47 on Monday. This benching has been compounded by Jordan Clarkson getting hot these days, which won't go on forever. Ball has just been a complete disaster as a scorer with his 36.4 TS% on his 19.1 usage rate on the season. How bad is that? Well, no scoring qualifier has finished a season with a usage rate of at least 19 and a TS% below 39. We all knew Ball wasn't going to be a plus scorer, but he's off to one of the worst starts in history from an efficiency standpoint. Hopefully you're punting FG% anyway, and at least Ball has nowhere to go but up. Wednesday, 10:24 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. drops 26/6/6 in win vs. Jazz
    Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Knicks to a win on Wednesday with 26 points, six rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers, making 7-of-15 field goals and 9-of-10 free throws in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Kristaps Porzingis added 22 points, eight boards and a pair of blocks, and the Knicks improved to 8-6 overall (7-3 at home). There was a lot of hand-wringing when THJ began the season ice-cold, but hopefully owners didn't sell-low -- he's now scored at least 26 points in three of the past four games. Wednesday, 7:35 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play vs. LAL
    Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The team announced he had swelling in his wrist a week ago, so he's likely going to be sitting out based on his problems with his wrist in the past. With him out, it's been Robert Covington, J.J. Redick, T.J. McConnell and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot getting some extra chances. Wednesday, 11:15 am
  • Jarrett Allen (left foot) plays nine minutes
    Jarrett Allen (left foot) returned to action on Tuesday vs. Boston with two points, one rebound and one assist in nine minutes.

    Advice: Allen missed the past six games, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case his role grows. Timofey Mozgov was benched in favor of Trevor Booker tonight, and it shouldn't be long before Allen passes guys like Mozgov and Quincy Acy on the depth chart. If Allen can eventually carve out a role of 20+ minutes, he could be an excellent source of blocks. Tuesday, 7:18 pm
  • Jarrett Allen (foot) will play on Tuesday
    Jarrett Allen (left foot) will play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: "The glimpse we've seen, I really like it," said head coach Kenny Atkinson. "Especially defensively, he could really help us - it's good news that he's back." Allen has spent the past six games on the sidelines, so he could be limited tonight, but his return to action could bump Tyler Zeller from the rotation. Allen has a lot of upside for his ability to rack up the swats, but with his playing time being limited to the teens thus far, he can only be viewed as a stash in deep leagues. Tuesday, 2:55 pm
  • Josh Hart sent down to the G-League
    Josh Hart has been assigned to the Lakers' G-League affiliate.

    Advice: Hart has been out of the rotation for the past two games, so he'll head down to the G-League to get some minutes. Tuesday, 1:01 pm
  • Lakers won't change Lonzo Ball's form
    Lakers president Magic Johnson said that the coaching staff won't attempt to fix or change Lonzo Ball's form this season.

    Advice: Ball is shooting just 31.3 percent from the floor, 25.0 percent from 3-point territory and 50.0 percent from the free-throw stripe. "Let him shoot the way he's been shooting and hopefully they'll go in," said Magic. "And so, we're not gonna mess with it. If after the season, and he's not shooting well, then we'll sit down with him and say, 'Hey, let's maybe look at a different way or let's try to improve the way you are shooting." Tuesday, 7:20 am
  • Nikola Vucevic scores 20 in loss to GSW
    Nikola Vucevic hit 7-of-13 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for a team-high 20 points in Monday's 110-100 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: The Warriors have been generous to opposing centers all season with the fourth most fantasy points allowed, so Vucevic took full advantage of their undersized frontcourt. He added five rebounds with four assists, one steal and two triples in 27 minutes, and he's still rolling right along with top-24 value in standard 9-category leagues. With Orlando looking like a playoff team, we see no reason to sell-high. Monday, 10:02 pm
  • Lonzo Ball scores seven points in win
    Lonzo Ball made 3-of-10 from the field for seven points during a 100-93 win over the Suns on Monday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    Advice: No triple-double here and he couldn't come close to matching his career-high 29 he had against the Suns last time he played them, but the Lakers did break their three-game losing streak. Plus, coach Luke Walton benched Ball down the stretch because Jordan Clarkson was playing well. Ball is still really struggling with his jumper at just 25.2 percent on those 107 attempts, and he's also had 11 of his 59 layups get blocked as well. Ball is also terrible as a transition scorer, which he'll really need to improve in this offense. Monday, 9:32 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko scores 13 in start for Jazz
    Jonas Jerebko started at power forward and hit 4-of-7 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, six rebounds and a steal in 25 minutes of Monday's 109-98 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Advice: He started at the 4 as Derrick Favors moved over to center and easily had his best game of the season. With Rudy Gobert out for the foreseeable future, it's possible the Jazz could continue to give Jerebko starts, but Thabo Sefolosha is also probably going to get some starts as well. Jerebko isn't a must-own player, but he looked good tonight and should be on your radar. Monday, 8:26 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. bounces back w/ 28 points
    Tim Hardaway Jr. bounced back on Monday vs. the Cavaliers with 28 points on 10-of-20 shooting.

    Advice: Coming off a four-point dud against the Kings, THJ got back on track tonight with 10 rebounds, five assists, one block, two steals and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes. He's been a rollercoaster ride this season, but he's been much more consistent in November and is cruising with seventh-round value in standard 9-category leagues. He'll get a tough test on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, as they have allowed the 6th fewest fantasy points to SGs this season. Monday, 7:46 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko will start at PF vs. MIN
    Jonas Jerebko will start at PF on Monday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: Thabo Sefolosha will come off the bench, but should still get plenty of run and is the better play in fantasy. Jerebko is starting because coach Quin Snyder likes his matchup with Taj Gibson, but he's not worth deploying in most fantasy leagues. Monday, 4:27 pm
  • Jarrett Allen (foot) practices in full Monday
    Jarrett Allen (left foot) was a full participant during Monday's practice.

    Advice: Allen said he "went hard" at practice and felt "little foot pain," which is encouraging regarding his status for Tuesday's game against the Celtics. He's currently being listed as questionable and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday, so owners can expect to get another update following shootaround. If he is able to get back out there, Quincy Acy's minutes will take a hit and Tyler Zeller could drop from the rotation entirely. Monday, 11:58 am
  • Jerryd Bayless out Monday, doubtful Wednesday
    Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He's also considered doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers and doesn't have a timetable to return. T.J. McConnell will continue to see a bump in minutes in Bayless' absence and is averaging 6.4 points, 6.4 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals over his last five games. Monday, 11:03 am
  • Seth Curry (leg) out against OKC Sunday
    Seth Curry (leg) will not play on Sunday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: He's been week-to-week for a while, but recent reports have indicated that he's still targeting a mid-November return. Yogi Ferrell and J.J. Barea will continue to see an uptick in minutes in Curry's absence. Nov 12, 10:19 am
  • Richaun Holmes goes for 11 & 6 in loss
    Richaun Holmes played 21 minutes and hit 3-of-4 shots for 11 points, seven rebounds and zero blocks off the Sixers' bench on Saturday.

    Advice: The line was about garbage time, but the takeaway here is Amir Johnson was a DNP-CD and Holmes is way ahead of him. His upside as a handcuff makes him worthy of a hold in several leagues. Nov 11, 9:17 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma goes for 21 & 11 in 42 minutes
    Kyle Kuzma notched his fourth double-double of the season on Saturday with 21 points and 11 rebounds, adding one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

    Advice: This marks the most minutes Kuzma has played in an NBA game, and he recovered from a cold start to finish 8-of-17 from the field and 4-of-5 from the FT line. Shooting efficiency has been a big part of his appeal, and the defensive stats were a welcome sight. He's averaging 0.5 steals and 0.2 blocks this year, which he'll need to improve to reach his full category-league potential. Nov 11, 8:51 pm
  • Lonzo Ball makes NBA history w/ triple-double
    Lonzo Ball became the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double on Saturday, scoring 19 points with 13 assists, 12 rebounds, four blocks, three steals and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Ball is 20 years and 15 days old, so he beat out LeBron James by five days. The rookie's historic night included efficient 7-of-12 shooting from the field, but L.A. still didn't have enough to avoid their fifth loss in six road games this season. Luke Walton said recently that "any time you turn on any sports show, all the talk about is [Ball's] shot," but that won't be the case this weekend. The rookie's percentages (29.2% FGs, 50.0% FTs) are a massive anchor in category leagues, of course, but that doesn't obscure his obscene potential. Nov 11, 8:22 pm
  • Jarret Allen out again on Saturday
    Jarrett Allen (foot) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: The Nets are pretty much giving him the Caris LeVert treatment from last year and they'll continue to hold him out until he's 100 percent for a long period of time. Allen can be dropped in most leagues, but he could become a hot pickup once he's back. Nov 11, 11:38 am
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) ruled out Saturday
    Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play Saturday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: This will be the third straight game Bayless has missed. T.J. McConnell has seen a slight uptick in minutes with Bayless sidelined. Dario Saric, playing alongside Ben Simmons, has been the biggest beneficary. Saric has posted two straight double-doubles and is averaging 19.0 points and 10.0 rebounds over the Sixers last two games. Nov 11, 10:03 am
  • Jerryd Bayless (wrist) likely out
    Jerryd Bayless (wrist) is likely out against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He is out indefinitely due to swelling in his left wrist. This is the second season in a row Bayless has dealt with wrist issues, so he could be out for several games. T.J. McConnell has filled in nicely and Dario Saric also benefits next to PG Ben Simmons. Nov 10, 1:20 pm
  • Richaun Holmes doesn't score in Thursday
    Richaun Holmes did not score with one rebound and one assist in nine minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: He didn't play well with a couple fouls and he also had some foul trouble on Tuesday during his start against the Jazz. Holmes impressed during his season debut on Friday, but he's trended down since. Still, he should be viewed as the best handcuff in all of fantasy hoops and he should start to produce once he can clearly beat out Amir Johnson. Embiid's owners almost have to hold him and maybe now they can trade for him on the cheap. Nov 9, 9:33 pm
