Out Luol Deng MIA, Out Open link
Deng is out for Wednesday's game (hamstring). He considers himself day-to-day heading into the Heat's next game Friday against the Knicks, but there's speculation that he could sit out Friday to get a full week's rest.
Active Gerald Green MIA, Active Open link
Green practiced with the starters on Wednesday and is likely to start tonight. Justise Winslow loses 7 minutes.
Probable Mitch McGary OKC, Probable Open link
McGary is probable for Wednesday's game (sprained ankle).
Active Dwight Howard HOU, Active Open link
Howards says he is now permitted to play in back to backs so he should play this upcoming Sunday and Monday. He will likely be limited to 25 m/g.
Injured Nik Stauskas PHI, Injured Open link
Stauskas will miss at least the next three games with a left knee contusion. Hollis Thompson gets the biggest boost with Convington getting a few more minutes too.

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.

Draymond Green- I think an assist/FT% bump and steal dump is warranted. But is still a stud. [LGLP86]

CJ Miles- I made this: [NYripper]

Jusuf Nurkic- Drop Hood for him to stash in a H2H 9-Cat League? If I add him and lives up to projections, I beat everyone in my league at least 5-4 by a large margin. I also have Drummond and Whiteside. [Martiaci]

Thaddeus Young- He's grabbing 3.5 more rebounds per/36 than his career rate. Is Brook Lopez a beast at boxing out, or is this a complete mirage? Kind of important for me because my points league emphasizes rebounding and I'm considering selling high on Thad... [kitchles]

Victor Oladipo- from @omagicdaily: "This should be made clear regarding Victor Oladipo. He is still going to play starter's minutes. Skiles wants to change how team starts." They'll probably get killed still to start (Skiles calls Dipo the team's best defender)...wouldn't be surprised if he gets swapped for Payton after a couple games but who knows... [brendans]

Nene Hilario- i am about to drop staukas for him in a 14 team 9 cat league [shadygr8]

Victor Oladipo- might not be a bad thing....but to put Frye as the replacement? Skiles shouldn't be a coach in the nba. [dishinNswishin]
100% agree

Victor Oladipo- From @JoshuaBRobbins: One side effect of this move, Skiles said, is that Oladipo should have more scoring opportunities and driving opportunities now. [mkmk]

Victor Oladipo- He's coming off the bench tonight. How does this make any sense? [nemlich22]

Victor Oladipo- Oladipo coming off the bench. Don't know what the minutes will look like, but I would guess a slight decrease in minutes could be offset by an uptick in usage [gehrenberg]

Frank Kaminsky- You can do all of this in custom projections. Just hit the "customize projection" button on the player page, hit the "copy bbm" button and then adjust the minutes. Exactly what you're looking for. [ageorgis]
100% agree

Frank Kaminsky- make it a little interactive...idk just a thought i find myself doing math often to see what a players value in categories that may be useful for my team depending if any player reaches a particular minute level... [dyraks]

Frank Kaminsky- for example if kaminsky who is trending up minutes wise ( for whatever reason doesnt matter ) and i believe he could be in the 25min avg i a week or so what would his stat line look like? i could enter the minutes and your per 36 avg (not projection but actual) per minute does the math and spits out a 25 min avg or 30 minutes or whatever we choose? [dyraks]

Jusuf Nurkic- in my 14 team league he hit waivers and was scooped with a 67$ bid. which honestly i dont think is necessarily incorrect. there just aren't that many bidding opportunities compared to football. i bid 20$ fwiw [TFergBaby]

Frank Kaminsky- is it possible to build in a row (in the per 36 section of player page) that would allow us to in put a min total we feel could be possible based on our beliefs at that time? then use the per 36 section's per minute avgs to extrapolate the estimate? [dyraks]
