Injured Tony Wroten PHI, Injured Open link
Wroten (knee) said that he could return as soon as Saturday's game against the Nuggets; however, coach Brown said the plan is 8-10 days, meaning Wroten is more likely to return next Monday or Thursday.
Probable Damian Lillard POR, Probable Open link
Lillard is probable for Tuesday's game (abdominal pain).
Active Jrue Holiday NOR, Active Open link
Holiday is active for Tuesday's game, and the plan is to have no minutes limit Tuesday but then to sit him out for Wednesday's b2b. It'd still be surprising to see him go much beyond 25 mins Tuesday.
Injured Kendall Marshall PHI, Injured Open link
Contrary to earlier reports from Philadelphia, Marshall's rehab is progressing "much slower" than Tony Wroten's knee rehab. Wroten is expected to return in the next 8-10 days, while Marshall remains without a concrete timeline to return, though it is still presumed he will be back sometime in December.
Out CJ Watson ORL, Out Open link
Watson missed the past 9 games and is out Tuesday (sore left calf).

(Not So) Little Drummond Boy

December 1, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

If you drafted Andre Drummond, you know your free throws are kaput. So, just sit back and enjoy the rest of the sweet, sweet numbers. Drummond piled them on against the new Sixers, at least defensively for fantasy purposes, the Houston Rockets.

By George, He's Done It Again

November 30, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

Paul George's presence as a top 10 player is certainly surprising to me, as he has overcome a significant mental hurdle to not only get back to his best but to somehow be far and away a better player than he was pre-injury. Congratulations if you drafted him.

Anthony Davis, Come Save Us

November 29, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

So, it appears Chris Paul didn't end Anthony Davis' career Friday night, despite Twitter's protests, as AD was back and destroying again. The latest injury scare may be an opportunity to buy him as low as you'll ever see, but Saturday's output might reduce that chance.

An Almost 5x5 Friday

November 28, 2015 by Kyle McKeown

On a 12-game Friday evening, there were plenty of lineup changes and big fantasy lines to go over, and leading the way was Kawhi Leonard missing a 5x5 performance by one steal.

Terrence Jones- I wouldn't own Terrence in most standard leagues right now, and I'm fine adding Stanley as a flier right now. I have him on most of my squads, because I think he'll be the third option before the season ends. Personal belief. I realize it's a little crazy, but I believe in Stanley's talent. [kylemckeown16]
0% agree

Kosta Koufos- Damn, was doing really well too :( [markalbert2kx]

Terrence Jones- Would you be dropping this pain in the neck for Stanley Johnson? [rainier88]

Emmanuel Mudiay- Thanks Kyle! Appreciate the insight. [EnderDantes]
100% agree

Darren Collison- Thanks, Kyle! Given that I have to spend a waiver to get MCW, I guess I would ride with Collison at the moment. [nzhelev]
100% agree

Darren Collison- This is a realllly hard question to answer after MCW's big game. Does the combination of a trip to the bench and his new haircut lead to a switch being flipped for MCW? It took him two benched games to breakout against a second unit. Honestly, I think it's a toss-up right now between these two, because MCW seems like a boom/bust guy right now, and DCollison is starting to find his groove again. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Emmanuel Mudiay- I think there's reason to believe that he will grow both personally and in his understanding of how his teammates play. The Nuggets have had a changing lineup a lot due to injuries, too, which can't be good for a PG finding his groove and creating a rhythm with his teammates on offense. Yes, I think the turnovers improve, but really, in H2H, you should just be punting TOs anyway, especially with Mudiay. [kylemckeown16]

Darren Collison- Who do you like better rest of the season, Collison or MCW? h2h 9cat, punting 3s, leading fg% by a wide margin the rest of the league, so I can afford absorbing a guy who shots badly. [nzhelev]

Emmanuel Mudiay- Needed assists and was able to scoop him up in punt fg% build. Any chance the turnovers go down even a little? His ft% seems to be getting better ever so slightly. [EnderDantes]

Marco Belinelli- Like most things, it's probably somewhere in between, but looking at the Kings wing rotation, they have Collison, McLemore, Belinelli, Caron Butler, James Anderson, Rudy Gay, Omri Casspi, and Quincy Acy all getting minutes at SG/SF on random nights. Karl seems content playing matchups from game to game, which means we'll likely see anyone not named Rondo, Cousins, and Gay playing less minutes some nights and more minutes other nights. Sucks that the rotation isn't more defined, but be what it be [kylemckeown16]

TJ Warren- Righaya - Roto or H2H? Roto, I go TJ Warren ROS for his percentages. Wade is shooting so poorly that he is pretty much a liability in Roto leagues right now. For H2H, you have a harder decision to make. Honestly, though, if I owned D-Wade in any leagues, I'd be trying to trade him after that 30-point game he just dropped. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Donatas Motiejunas- I think it's hard to expect too much out of guy coming back from back surgery. I'm not looking his way in standard leagues unless the Rockets come out and say explicitly that he is 100 percent healthy and is going to have the starting job. Obviously, all these trade rumors with the Rockets regarding Ty Lawson could shake the team up and change this narrative. [kylemckeown16]

Stanley Johnson- SVG is desperate to make the kid competent playing off the ball, so it's lead to a lot of possessions for Stanley where the crappy second unit throws him the ball at the end of the shot clock, treating him as a release valve. It makes Stanley look bad, but it's not really his fault in those situations. And he's making steady improvements. I wouldn't look too harshly on his early numbers. He's their 4th best player at worst on both sides of the ball. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

DeMarre Carroll- I'm not patently against making that move, but it depends a lot on who is on the waiver for you to pick up. [kylemckeown16]

Stanley Johnson- I picked him up as a spec add in a few roto leagues where I had a spare bench spot. But his per 36 numbers don't thrill me he isn't positive in any category [gehrenberg]
