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.
Active Wesley Johnson LAC, Active Open link
Johnson is active for Tuesday's game and starting at SF.
Out Zach Randolph MEM, Out Open link
Randolph missed the past 2 games and is out Tuesday (sore knee). Earlier reports said Randolph would be active. Matt Barnes is starting in his place Tuesday.
Active Matt Barnes MEM, Active Open link
Barnes is stariting Tuesday's game, and it appears Zach Randolph will return off the bench if he is indeed playing.

Walker, Charlotte Ranger

November 24, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

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.

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

CJ Miles- Thx BBM for introducing me Miles [chenkyte]

Rajon Rondo- Well by that logic he must love duke dujan who hasn't stepped on the court [gehrenberg]
100% agree

Monta Ellis- What a huge disappointment he's been. The one thing you always expected to get from Ellis is scoring and it ain't happening this year. I know J-Lloyd was down on him because of all the ball handlers but Ellis has jumped teams throughout his career without skipping a beat. Not this year. [webslinger48]
100% agree

Rajon Rondo- I think George Karl secretly hates him and he's hoping these 45+ minute nights cause his knees to implode. There's a real disdain among coaches in the NBA for Rondo, especially after he tried to lose the DAL vs HOU game last year on purpose, and coaches in the NBA are pretty close. I seriously think Karl is trying to run him in to the ground. Could be spite for SAC front office too. [darrenloveland]
25% agree

Rajon Rondo- Our per-36 numbers are not too far off from what's he's doing, but we have him at 32 m/g rather than his current 36. When Collison was healthy, Rondo was closer to 30. [kslight]
100% agree

Rajon Rondo- A few weeks ago, I traded Mirotic and Rondo for Nerlens... and I thought I had made the trade of year... now I almost wish I could unwind it just to get Rondo back. [littledancerlena]

Rajon Rondo- 3 makes it a crowd. Where do i sign up? That being said though, are you guys thinking he's going to regress to current projections or is an adjustment around the corner? [Brosencephalon]

Rajon Rondo- Might need change the username to get away from that bad mojo. It's like a perfect real-life outcome of the metaphor of Charlie Brown trying to kick the football and Lucy pulling it away from him. ---- P.S. I am sorry. That sucks. I don't have Rondo anywhere if you want to start a Rondo-Less support group? [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Rajon Rondo- I asked on the trade thread if I should trade my Rondo for Dragic about 1.5 weeks ago. All 9 voters agreed. FML [charlie_brown102]
33% agree

Dwight Powell- Powell played just 13 minutes with JaVale McGee returning to action in the Mavs' last game. If you have Powell and Aaron Gordon is available, I'd make the switch there in case the changes Skiles said are coming includes Gordon moving into the starting lineup. [kylemckeown16]

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]
