Sefolosha is going to start again Monday over Kent Bazemore, just as he did Saturday. Though things may change going forward, it appears the Hawks are settling into using Sefolosha as their starter on the wing next to Kyle Korver, and Bazemore will be in a reserve role backing up multiple positions. The Hawks' rotation over the next week should help iron out how this rotation will look when all the team's wing players are healthy, and then it'll be easier to determine if Bazemore is going to play enough to warrant rostering in standard leagues. At this time, it's looking doubtful. Sefolosha is generally only an option in very deep leagues due to his poor per-minute production.
Doubtful Tyson Chandler PHO, Doubtful Open link
Chandler has already missed one game with his hamstring injury and could miss a few more games with it. The Suns have four games this week, a back-to-back Tuesday and Wednesday and then games Friday and Sunday. It's unknown when the Suns plan for him to return. Alex Len has started at center in the two recent games that Chandler has missed. In those games, Len played 16 and 28 minutes, and his minutes may fluctuate as the Suns choose whether to matchup will small ball teams or stay big with Len.
Probable Trey Burke UTA, Probable Open link
Burke is probable for Monday's game (back spasms). He's played just 8 and 15 minutes in the Jazz's last two games and seems like a risky play Monday.
Probable Rodney Hood UTA, Probable Open link
Hood is probable for Monday's game (back). He's been dealing with back spasms, but he played 34 minutes Saturday and should be good Monday.
Active Ryan Hollins WAS Open link
Hollins was signed by the Wizards on Monday. He practiced with the team and should be available Tuesday against the Cavs. Hollins is an extra frontcourt body for the Wizards with Nene (calf) and Drew Gooden (calf) likely to continue sitting out through at least Tuesday's game and potentially longer. Hollins will likely only play a limited bench role, limiting his value to the deepest of leagues.

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.

Kevin Martin- He is just hit the wire...Should I drop Kobe for him? [LGLP86]

Nikola Jokic- That quote was from 6 days ago: [scottkdouglas]

Nikola Jokic- Jokic just 'earned' the starting spot. Drop Meyers Leonard for Nikola Jokic? [Benniepie]

Isaiah Canaan- At this point I think it would be better off with him than Kobe for my punt FG%...What do ya think? [LGLP86]

Jeremy Lamb- Even when his FG% goes back down (which has yet to be known) he's still going to have late round value. [zheeduh]

Jeremy Lamb- Uhh Lamb is ranked 70 this season. He should pretty much be owned in all standard leagues. [zheeduh]

Tony Wroten- stash in 12 team h2h league? 11 days away until he returns [bostonrider]

Joakim Noah- Who do you think has the higher potential to get more minutes for ROS? Noah or Ed Davis? Is any of them a potential trade target this year? [javiers]

Rajon Rondo- 7 game sample size with Collison back, looks like Rondo will be closer to 36m/g than current projections [jxu87]

Alex Len- Worth a pickup for a couple weeks of 25-30mpg bump w/Chandler out in 12tms, or still just a 14+ team guy? [scottkdouglas]

Gorgui Dieng- Dieng or Plumlee? [nchristie]

TJ McConnell- It's over. The streak is dead. He had a Free Throw Attempt last night (a miss). His first all season... It was fun while it lasted. [antbanks]
100% agree

Kawhi Leonard- bonezi89 - that's what Custom Projections are for. Just set his Assists to 3.0. Problem solved. :) [drstats]
100% agree

Nerlens Noel- i have been offered Noel for W Barton. comments? [bitaites]
100% agree

Nikola Jokic- IMHO, he seems to have limited upside, less so than Mirotic last yr. When he gets almost 30mpg, he seesm to put up solid but unspectacular numbers - seems like he's always in foul trouble early lately. Lack of blocks is tough as well. I still own him, but am struggling to see his upside that's been talked about. [scottkdouglas]
