Active D'Angelo Russell LAL, Active Open link
Russell is active for Tuesday's game (ankle sprain).
Active Kobe Bryant LAL, Active 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.

CJ Miles- If I could get a refund I'd gladly take it. I don't understand hating on Miles for arbitrary reasons. If a guy is putting up good numbers, roster him. Jae Crowder wasn't putting up the defensive stats last year like he is this year, but that doesn't mean he's not worth a roster spot... [knyx13]
0% agree

Will Barton- Anyone know what happened today? Low minutes. He never got into a rhythm [woofie]

Jusuf Nurkic- Who would you drop if you were to stash Nurkic? Jordan Hill, Biyombo, or Steven Adams [yzaker]

CJ Miles- Where it matters, in the projections, BBM has been very high on CJ. Perhaps knyx should ask BBM for a refund? Personally, I'd be for some level of moderation in the Player Comments section. [setshot]
75% agree

Nikola Jokic- Anyone watching Jokic tonight? Looks like hes hit a bit of foul trouble but posting good per mins in the box score. How does he look on the court? [tremajj]

CJ Miles- Kyle, I'm sure you're a good dude and know your stuff. Just make sure you're making data-driven decisions when it comes to building out the projections for this site. Don't really care if you "hate" CJ Miles. [b1gdoublezero]
100% agree

John Wall- and by stat stuffing, please disperse the turnovers into other categories [demandy]

CJ Miles- Had in il slot in my league and dropped cj miles today to get tyreke evans activated. He gave me a surprise gift for the last night on my roster. [hsahardid]
100% agree

CJ Miles- I am such a non-believer in Miles that I don't have him on any teams. Everyone else was going to believe in him before me. I'm OK with that. We all have the players we like at certain tiers, and CJ Miles is was just a bootsy empty taco for so long that I didn't think he'd become a burrito this season. [kylemckeown16]
20% agree

CJ Miles- I'm not saying Miles is going to be top 100 this year. I have no idea, although I think his 3's and steals are great for any team looking to take over those categories. I'm saying I distinctly remember I believe Josh saying this guy was not worth a pickup at all and I don't see that comment anymore. [knyx13]
50% agree

CJ Miles- Knyx13 is right. I am a renowned CJ Miles hater. It wasn't until tonight that I started thinking about some kind of atonement and healing ceremony to perform to fix my perspective on CJ Miles, because I still think he's a horrible player only masquerading as a real NBA player right now. [kylemckeown16]
33% agree

Goran Dragic- Hard to hold this guy forever. Knowing when to cut is the worst. [Koalaballa]

CJ Miles- I distinctly remember there being comments by either Kyle or Josh saying that Miles was not worth owning, and I don't mean the half-optimistic comments by Kyle. Did you guys delete them now that he's doing well? [knyx13]
29% agree

John Wall- pls john wall return to your stat stuffing ways [demandy]

Jared Dudley- If he plays significant minutes he could fill the role as the stretch four that Humphries couldn't fill [gehrenberg]
