Russell is active for Tuesday's game (ankle sprain).
Active Kobe Bryant LAL Open link
Bryant is active for Tuesday's game (rest).
Probable Hassan Whiteside MIA, Probable Open link
Whiteside is probable for Wednesday's game (illness).
Active Jared Dudley WAS Open link
Dudley started the second half of Tuesday's game against the Pacers. CJ Miles and Paul George were destroying the Pacers with their shooting while Humphries was on the court guarding Miles in the first quarter. Teams will often make a halftime change to the starting lineup that doesn't carry over to the next game, but in deeper leagues, it might be worth taking a flier on Dudley in case he steals the starting job away and finds himself playing more minutes from game to game.
Doubtful DeMarcus Cousins SAC, Doubtful Open link
Cousins is doubtful for Wednesday's game (lower back strain). Omri Casspi gains 8 minutes. Quincy Acy gains 7 minutes. Willie Cauley-Stein gains 7 minutes. Rajon Rondo gains 6 minutes.

Walker, Charlotte Ranger

Kemba Walker showed us what sort of point guard we could have on our hands if he learned how to shoot. Judging by what we've seen this season, maybe he has?

It's Good To Have AD Back

November 23, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

So, Anthony Davis is back. The injury risk is a legitimate concern, but it's hard to complain when he turns in performances like he did Sunday.

Week 5 Schedule Analysis

November 22, 2015 by Matt Smith

16 teams have four games this week giving weekly owners plenty of tough start/sit decisions. Of the teams with four games the Timberwolves, Bucks, Celtics and Cavaliers have the more fantasy friendly schedules, while the Suns and Hawks have the least. I’m not suggesting to start Michael Car...

Kristaps It

November 22, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

All hail Kristaps Porzingis. I thought he would be good, but not this good, and not this soon. Porzingis eviscerated the Rockets in a big win for the Knicks, with Carmelo Anthony limited by foul trouble, in his best game of his career.

Knight In White Satin

November 21, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

Brandon Knight is skewering opponents at the moment, and showing us that his cameo for the Suns last season was in no indicative of what we could expect this season. Hopefully, you managed to draft him this season.

OJ Mayo- Hi Josh/Kyle, why do you think Mayo has the breakout candidate tag? I have him in my 20 teamer as a flier but I will be cutting him or stuckey soon. [Donnie99]

CJ Miles- I don't get what's so hard to grasp here - I've been a fan of Miles since I saw his averages a few weeks ago and saw that he wasn't getting love in the comments. I got confused and thought Josh was anti-Miles and made some ill advised comments. So what? Move guys must be bored than I am for making it all dramatic... [knyx13]

Mike Conley- him projection is still unlogical, he should be in top 50 [liamgallagher]

CJ Miles- Told you guys to roster him ;) [falco.]

CJ Miles- @knyx13. Josh Lloyd on Nov 10, 2015, in his show labeled "His Name is Jeff", @ 14:40 mark he talked about the Pacers. "(on Miles' two 3s and two stls game) That's what you bank on him for, 3s and steals, and he gave it you. You can't ask for much more than that" ... Are you mad because he gave you too many 3s, or b/c he only provided 1 stl today? LOL [Fisherman805]
100% agree

CJ Miles- I own him in one of my leagues. IMHO, he is on a streak again and won't be able to keep it up. I'll enjoy it while it lasts. [markalbert2kx]

CJ Miles- Didn't mean for that last comment to come off so blunt. Just trying to fit all my thoughts/arguments into the comment box. I'm a super chill and goofy dude who takes his work seriously but not myself. [kylemckeown16]

CJ Miles- My issue with Miles stems from him being a career disappointment in standard leagues until this season. He was an intriguing shooter with great size as a young player in Utah, but even after repeated chances, he couldn't carve out a regular role, and he couldn't put up solid production. Also, he was on IND last year and was stuck behind Solomon Hill and Rodney Stuckey. Also, his steals have never been this good. There are plenty of reasons to NOT like Miles in fantasy. Career-high in mpg is 26 [kylemckeown16]

CJ Miles- The comparison column and value consistency column is very useful for this. ;) [markalbert2kx]

CJ Miles- don't understand what's the matter here. 2 Years ago somehow Lance Stephenson was fantasy relevant back in Indy. Doesen't mean, that a bad player can't put up useful numbers if the Coach gives him enough minutes. Always try to get your own picture of a player an Situation and don't blame the guys that are doing a great job [#36696]

Draymond Green- What are the chances he gains C eligibility on ESPN? He's been playing at the 5 a bunch in the small ball lineup. I'd actually say he plays more C than SF... [rdubs30]

CJ Miles- What would be the reason for thinking he's a horrible player, he's had an above league average PER for the last few years, he's been super efficient with a solid true shooting percentage and his on off court stats show that he is a plus defender. Is there something I am missing? [gehrenberg]
100% agree

Kristaps Porzingis- @brosencephalon My cats are: 3s, Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, Blocks, and DD [Benniepie]

CJ Miles- Somebody get knyx13 some cheese for his whine. This is my 3rd year on BBM and I've never seen this level of complaining in the comments. Setshot is right, some moderation may be in order if these people can't calm down. [webslinger48]
