Questionable Nemanja Bjelica MIN, Questionable Open link
Bjelica missed the past 2 games and is questionable Wednesday (left knee contusion). He did some light work in Tuesday's practice but remains a game-time decision Wednesday.
Doubtful Tyreke Evans NOR, Doubtful Open link
Evans is doubtful for Wednesday's game (knee). He went through the morning shootaround, but the Pelicans will wait to see how he feels in warmups, making him a game-time decision Wednesday. With the Pelicans not playing until 9 p.m. ET, his status may not be announced until after the early games begin.
Questionable Andrew Bogut GSW, Questionable Open link
Bogut is questionable for Friday's game (stiff back). He sat out Wednesday's practice, but he also said that the stiffness is "nothing serious."
Active Bryce Cotton PHO Open link
Cotton was called up from the D-League by the Suns on Wednesday. He's unlikely to have much value in standard leagues.
Out Amar'e Stoudemire MIA, Out Open link
Stoudemire missed the past 2 games and will be OUT again Wednesday (illness). He didn't even travel with the team to Detroit, so if he hopes to play Friday, he'd have to meet the team in New York, which he's probably unlikely to bother doing since the Heat are healthy in the frontcourt at the moment and don't necessarily need an extra big on the trip.

John, Paul George, and Ringo

November 25, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

So, apparently Paul George came back being a significantly better player than he was before the injury and is a freak of medical nature. He dominated the Wizards and is thriving playing the four this season.

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.

Rodney Hood- why are people dropping this guy? [garyhu]

Frank Kaminsky- have little to go on. hence why I want to look at production from the past week or two and put that into some usable (mental data) to make some speculative decisions...we all know 1 to 2 weeks info doesn't mean much but if that info leads somewhere ahead of the curve I'm all for the speculative add in the deep league. then if it doesn't work out like I hoped back to the wire they go [dyraks]

Nikola Jokic- Malone said, "I did not expect Nikola Jokic to be our starting center 14 games into the season. But he has earned it." [ncognito]

Frank Kaminsky- custom projection (unless I'm missing something) uses BBM projections I'm looking for actual per minute production over the past week or 2 then using that while I can input the minutes that I believe could be on the way. to get an idea of how a perticular player may develop given the opportunity. I'm looking at players that for whatever reason don't have a great history therefore BBM projections.. [dyraks]

Rodney Hood- why are people dropping this guy? [garyhu]

Thaddeus Young- It'll be interesting to see how he fairs in his next two games, @OKC and @CLE, where he'll be going against Ibaka/KD and Love/Lebron. It's not like he's only played scrub teams during his run, but these next two might bring his higher-than-expected stats down a bit. [fiestaoffire]

Victor Oladipo- Seriously Oladipo and Vucevic are the talent on this team. Skiles is an idiot. [jstutey]

Klay Thompson- Does this guy need a serious downgrade? Or are we still this confident? [#54982]

Serge Ibaka- Ibaka said that he's not going to seek out three-pointers as much this season, and he's been doing just that, averaging only 1.5 3Pt Attempts per game this season after averaging 3.2 3Pt Attempts last season. I don't know if I'd be buying low, because this production seems in line with his dip in FG% from last season. The only thing I'd expect Ibaka to improve upon is his current FT%, and it's only so low because he's taken so few attempts. [kylemckeown16]

Al-Farouq Aminu- ThisGuy - It depends who you'd be picking up from week-to-week, but I think Aminu's value is pretty secure and should be relatively consistent this season. He's probably one of your last guys, but he's a solid last guy in 10-team leagues with his contributions in most categories. [kylemckeown16]

Wesley Johnson- Only even consider adding him in deeper leagues. Doc Rivers has said that he will probably shuffle the SF position as needed this season. There is some small hope for a big role for Johnson, but that would likely only come true if Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson were both to continue struggling. As things stand now, Johnson is unlikely to have a consistent enough role from game to game, even as a starter, to be worth using in standard leagues. [kylemckeown16]

Aaron Gordon- There's a part of me that is still holding out hope that Frye only plays limited minutes as the starter and Gordon's role increases off the bench, but I don't trust anything good to happen under Skiles' watch. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Jrue Holiday- Holiday has been limited to 23 mpg, so I'd take the upside shot that Williams MIGHT be able to get more run. No guarantee there, though, I believe the Cavs are going to try and limit Williams from playing too many minutes. That, of course, doesn't always happen though. [kylemckeown16]

Jrue Holiday- Holiday or Mo Williams tonight? [tremajj]

Frank Kaminsky- Kaminsky has had an intriguing last for games, but PJ Hairston missed the first three games, and with Marvin Williams getting run at SF, there were more frontcourt minutes available. What's curious is that Kaminsky still got 19 mins in Hairston's return and Spencer Hawes lost minutes. We're no overreacting to the bump in minutes, yet, but we're keeping an eye on it.
