Active Willie Reed BKN, Active Open link
Reed (thumb) is active for Saturday's game. This will be the first game of the season that he's active for, but it's unclear whether or not the team actually plans for him to play.
Jared Dudley is moving into the starting lineup at PF Saturday, and Humphries is moving into a bench role.
Active Jared Dudley WAS, Active Open link
Dudley is starting at PF for Saturday's game. Kris Humphries will be moving to a bench role.
Out DeMarcus Cousins SAC, Out Open link
Cousins missed the past 2 games and is out Saturday (lower back strain). He didn't travel with the team. He won't play Saturday.
Injured Donatas Motiejunas HOU, Injured Open link
Motiejunas is getting closer to a return, but no clear timeline has been offered. We're still projecting him to return sometime in December and to play limited minutes when he does return, as he works himself into true game shape. It also wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out one game of back-to-back sets when he returns, further limiting his potential value in fantasy this season.

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.

James Harden: With A Vengeance

November 26, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

James Harden's early season struggles are a thing of the past, but not so, those of the Houston Rockets. Harden continues to be an awesome fantasy presence, but he has little help.

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?

Matt Smith: @SmanSports


Klay Thompson- There are a lot of factors to consider with the current GSW situation. Klay was dealing with some back issues early in the season that he's supposed to be over now. Does Walton coaching change anything with the rotation? Is Barnes' growth reason enough to reduce Klay? Is the team's amazing run the reason he's taking less shots? All of those things could have affected Klay's production early this season. We'll look at it, but there's a lot to consider. [kylemckeown16]

TJ Warren- I hope so. Minutes are trending up, and I have this dude stashed in a lot of my 14-team leagues, waiting for him to steal the starting job. LOVE him in Rotisserie. [kylemckeown16]

Jarrett Jack- I think I would. It's weird to think we've gotten to that point with Wade, but as someone else pointed out in Wade's player comments, his FG% is murder this season, and he's not offsetting the dip with a rash of three-pointers, so it's tough to swallow. [kylemckeown16]

Jarrett Jack- I have the opportunity to trade Jack for Wade. Should I do it? [jeremysacks]

TJ Warren- Bucket-maker for hire. Horny will be starting him in no time [Pippen]
100% agree

Meyers Leonard- For me, Meyers Leonard. He's stepping right back into the starting lineup, while Jones' role has already changed a couple times this season, and it could be further obfuscated when Donatas Motiejunas eventually returns. [kylemckeown16]

Klay Thompson- Looked better vs. the Suns. However, I feel that the Dubs are going to have to start losing games more often for Klay to match current projections. That or an injury. Thoughts? [Brosencephalon]

Meyers Leonard- terrence jones or meyers leonard in 12 team h2h league? [bostonrider]

Festus Ezeli- 21895 - We'll take a look at it. I'm not sure I'm buying a change at first glance, but we always put multiple eyes on stuff. Thanks. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Joffrey Lauvergne- If Lauvergne wants regular minutes when the Nuggets are healthy, his best chance of that happening would be for Faried to get hurt or traded. Jokic has the starting center job right now and has played well overall, and Nurkic will confuse things when he returns in 3-4 weeks. Lauvergne got some interesting run early, but unless they play him somewhere other than C, it's hard to expect big minutes from him. He shouldn't be owned in one-year leagues that are smaller than 16 teams right now. [kylemckeown16]

Kevin Durant- Gehrenberg - Thanks, brother. We'll look at it. [kylemckeown16]

Kevin Love- Sautah - Thanks for the heads up. We'll look at it. [kylemckeown16]

Cory Joseph- Javiers - You're awesome. Thank you for pointing that out. It's fixed. [kylemckeown16]

Tyreke Evans- I've tried to look up specifics about the injury, but I wasn't able to find anything with a lot of detail about the injury and revcovery. This was his second arthroscopic surgery on his right knee since May, but from what I could tell, they were separate injuries. Really, it's Tyreke, he always has another injury on the horizon, but we also know he can be a great do-it-all guy. Risk/reward. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Tyson Chandler- Is this guy droppable at this point? Do we think he can hit top-100 per game rest of the way (as the projections say)? [JonathanHarris]
