Questionable Nik Stauskas PHI, Questionable Open link
Stauskas underwent an MRI on Tuesday that confirmed he only has a left knee bruise, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game.
Active Blake Griffin LAC Open link
Coach Doc Rivers told the media on Tuesday that he thinks Griffin may have been dealing with some knee soreness in Sunday's game, explaining Griffin's poor performance. No other details regarding the health of Griffin's knee were given, so it's hard to see this as much of an issue. Griffin isn't on the injury report for Tuesday's game, so it must not be much of an issue.
Questionable Hassan Whiteside MIA, Questionable Open link
Whiteside is traveling with the Heat but remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons (illness).
Questionable DeMarcus Cousins SAC, Questionable Open link
Cousins left Monday's game with a stiff back, and it was acting up on him during the team's travel Monday night as well. The Kings held an optional practice Tuesday, and Cousins didn't practice, but neither did Rondo or Bellineli, so it's hard to read into his absence too much without more details.
Active Jason Terry HOU Open link
Even if Patrick Beverley (questionable - ankle) is able to return Wednesday, Terry will stll start at PG for Wednesday's game. It is unknown if new coach JB Bickerstaff is using Terry as a long-term option at starting PG or if this is merely a stopgap until Beverley proves he's healthy.

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.

Kristaps Porzingis- I traded KP for Pau two weeks ago. It hurt to let him go then and it still stings. I needed a center eligible player. [transition3s]

Kristaps Porzingis- @Bennipie, I'd make that move. I'm curious though: what are your cats in that league if no %/TO? [Brosencephalon]

Mirza Teletovic- Thanks, Kyle. I ended up keeping Ezeli. But I'm staring at Nurkic right now on the wire. Eyeing a grab. Only issue for me is that JV just went down. Not sure how much I can withstand stashing 2 bigs. 16 team daily H2H. [#19032]
100% agree

Evan Fournier- The answer, Pipper, should probably be too many, but the answer is actually 11. Thanks for your kind words [joshlloyd48]

Victor Oladipo- I wanted to offer comfort, but until we see what changes Skiles makes, I'm not bothering to speculate via trades or pickups in most leagues. I'd add Aaron Gordon as a flier anywhere I can if I have someone to drop, but I won't be trying to buy low on anyone until the changes are announced, because I fear Skiles is dumb enough to bring Oladipo or Payton off the bench like a boob. [kylemckeown16]

Isaiah Canaan- Nik Stauskas' struggles and now knee injury is the biggest reason. [kylemckeown16]

Andrew Nicholson- Nicholson has skill as a scoring big man, but I believe the reason he's been on the bench the majority of his career is because he can't play defense. He's the second coming of Carl Landry, which is like the second coming of Howdy Doody, but as Bolt says, it is Skiles, so who knows. The Magic will probably trade Oladipo for Mike Dunleavy at some point this season. [kylemckeown16]

Nikola Mirotic- I would take the upside/production we're seeing from KP, but I still want Mirotic' upside on my team, too. [kylemckeown16]

Mirza Teletovic- #19032 - It really depends on your leagues settings. Teams? Roster spots? Type of League? [kylemckeown16]

Nikola Mirotic- In 9cat roto, would you have Kristaps or Mirotics ROS? [slimax]

Rajon Rondo- Congrats to anyone who drafted Rondo this season. I envy you. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Tony Parker- I would definitely drop Jeff Green in a 10-team league. Parker is ownable if he's going to keep playing 32 mpg like he has over the last four games, but this bump in minutes came with Manu out for two games and now Aldridge out for two games. I'm not convinced these 32 mpg will continue to be there. Parker hasn't averaged over 29 mpg since the 12-13 season, and I don't think we can anticipate a full-season change, meaning this value boom is likely just a hot stretch for Parker. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Victor Oladipo- I'm not overly concerned with the Magic starting 5. I'm surely no one comes to a Magic game to see Dedmon or Frye or Napier play. Skiles can't touch the faces of the franchise and future: Payton Oladipo Vooch in the long run. It wouldn't be long before a high brass in ORL reminds Skiles of that. Oh and no one comes to see Skiles coach either. [Fisherman805]

Kent Bazemore- I personally think Bazemore has more upside. I'm a little higher on Bazemore than most though. DeMarre Carrol had a few (4) years of NBA irrelevance before breaking out in Bud's system as well. Bazemore is a little smaller, but he is very athletic and I remember a stretch where he broke out in LA and it looked like one day he might resurface. I'd hold for a little longer. [mrg12686]

TJ McConnell- I'd likely be grabbing Collison for his early-season play. Ish Smith's value will likely dry up or become more frenetic with Tyreke Evans possibly returning as soon as Wednesday. I don't trust Miles or Bayless to maintain value consistently. So, you may want to consider Miles or Bayless if you personally think either of them could have sustained value. Miles is more likely to do that than Bayles, imo. [kylemckeown16]
