Active Jrue Holiday NOR, Active Open link
Holiday is active for Saturday's game (back to back). He was supposed to sit out the second game of their b2b set Saturday, but it sounds like he'll play some Saturday. Toney Douglas loses 12 minutes. Dante Cunningham loses 6 minutes.
Doubtful Tyreke Evans NOR, Doubtful Open link
Evans remains listed as doubtful for Saturday's game (knee).
Probable Anthony Davis NOR, Probable Open link
Davis is probable for Saturday's game (right knee contusion).
Probable Joffrey Lauvergne DEN, Probable Open link
Lauvergne is officially listed as probable Saturday, but he was already available for Friday's game and simply didn't get into the game (back). There's no clear reason to think Lauvergne wouldn't be available, but he may not get off the bench either way.
Doubtful Harrison Barnes GSW, Doubtful Open link
Barnes is doubtful for Saturday's game after he was forced to leave Friday's game with a sprained left ankle.

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.

All Wired Up - A Capela

November 28, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

As you've probably noticed, the waiver wire section was omitted from the Weekly Primer article last week. That will be the case moving forward, as Matt Smith handles the weekly primer from now on, covering ways to maximise your output from the schedule.

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


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

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]

Meyers Leonard- I agree 1,000% with Lang55. Drop Bogut due to the other players' upside. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Terrence Jones- I'd personally drop Jones for Leonard in a heartbeat. Leonard appears to be returning right back into the starting lineup. Jones' role is already being minimalized and shifted constantly, and Donatas Motiejjunas isn't even back from injury yet to shake things up even more. Leonard's value seems much more secure. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Clint Capela- It depends somewhat on your team, but in general, Bazemore's job appears to be more secure since he was thrust immediately back into the starting lineup Friday and played very well. [kylemckeown16]

Damian Lillard- Bennie - That's probably a question that needs a lot more detail about your league settings and team makeup. I'd post that question in the Forums, and I'm sure you'll get a more in-depth set of responses. [kylemckeown16]
