Out Kenneth Faried DEN, Out Open link
Faried missed the past 2 games and is out Friday (left ankle sprain). Darrell Arthur gains 12 minutes. JJ Hickson gains 11 minutes.
Active Jahlil Okafor PHI, Active Open link
Okafor is playing in Friday's game (possible suspension). The Sixers are playing Okafor on Friday as they continue to sift through the information regarding his fight Wednesday night, but the league may levy a suspension at any time.
Active Nik Stauskas PHI, Active Open link
Stauskas missed last game and is active for Friday (left knee contusion). He'll come off the bench if he plays and likely only get limited minutes. Phil Pressey loses 7 minutes. TJ McConnell loses 6 minutes.
Injured Tiago Splitter ATL, Injured Open link
Splitter missed the past 2 games and said that his hip is still giving him considerable pain. We're expecting him to miss at least a few more games.
Active Gerald Green MIA Open link
Green is listed as the starter in one of the Heat's pregame tweets. Lineups can change right up to tip, and considering Spoelstra's reluctance to offer hs starters earlier, this situation will seem fluid until the official announcement of the starters comes down.

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?

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...

LeBron James- Any concern he sits games down stretch for h2h playoff schedule? [TFergBaby]

Robert Covington- Yeah but it is just their approach, they always look to exploit the 2nd round 4 year deals. Agents and players aren't going to want to deal with this organization. Okafor is also a fraud, good job passing on STAPS. My rant is over [TFergBaby]
100% agree

Jahlil Okafor- It wasn't at the arena, and he wasn't the person who initiated the conflict [rexs]

Jahlil Okafor- even though he was defending a teammate who got punched in the head, and being heckled the whole, he should be suspended because it was caught on a cell phone camera? No police report and no investigation? Yet Matt Barnes wasnt suspended, though he drove to his old house with motive to fight Derek Fisher and did so. I think he gets a scolding and nothing more. [rexs]

Otto Porter Jr- Ronald - Yes. It's hard to find a league where Porter shouldn't be owned right now. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Danilo Gallinari- All of those guys are nice targets, too, if unloading Galo. I believe in all of those guys to maintain relative value moving forward, though we may not see consistenty crazy performances from Knight going forward. Dude has been great so far. [kylemckeown16]

D'Angelo Russell- Russell is rebounding even when he doesn't get the ball enough to be a facilitator, which makes me feel like he's finding ways to stay productive, and that makes me feel good about holding him in most leagues until the damn breaks and Russell is truly allowed to play on the ball more or Kobe is vaporized by Father Time and starts sitting more games to open touches for Russell. [kylemckeown16]

Danilo Gallinari- Thanks Kyle, I'm punting FT's but not FG as I have CP3, Bledsoe, Drum, & DJA. Rondo is interesting to pair with CP3, Conley also since he hits 3's/gets stls as well... what do you think of Knight/Kemba/IT3 as possible targets? [scottkdouglas]

Patrick Patterson- I would much rather take the potential defensive upside of Biyombo than to roster Patterson. Despite playing in every game this season and having plenty of opportunity to try and carve out a larger role, Patterson has only scored in double figures twice, and he doesn't offer much anywhere else. He's a poor man's Marvin Williams. [kylemckeown16]

Robert Covington- McDaniels was a contract holdout after being drafted in the second round and only agreed to a one-year non-guaranteed deal. I was surprised McDaniels was traded, too, but I think he saw the possibility that KJ was going to become an issue off the court and didn't want to deal with it, so he traded for a scoring point guard in Isaiah Canaan, which they needed after trading MCW. It all makes sense from a certain perspective. [kylemckeown16]

Terrence Jones- HairlineAirlines - I wouldn't really be panicking to get rid of Jones. He's actually played pretty well over the last couple weeks besides a couple bummer games. He's played 28+ minutes in 5 of his last 6 games. That's good. It appears he's maybe been on the perimeter more so far this season, because his 3Pt attempts are up, and his rebounds are down, but that is kind of a decent tradeoff. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Robert Covington- You also don't develop players playing with D-League talent. Could argue it actually hurts the development and creates bad habits. Essentially he went too extreme. And the KJ McDaniels trade is still inexcusable. [TFergBaby]

Terrence Jones- BENRV21 - ABSOLUTELY. Middleton's shooting should improve, and hopefully he starts pickpocketting a little more. It's funny, he's shooting 39% from the field but 45% from 3Pt-land. Definitely a slight buy-low and much more security than Terrence. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Robert Covington- Hinkie is Ra's al Ghul from Batman. He thinks you have to burn down the city to bleed out the corruption, and that's what he did to the Sixers. You don't get a high draft pick if you win games, and players don't develop by sitting on the bench behind crappy vets like Jason Thompson. It's ugly, but it's necessary. [kylemckeown16]

Robert Covington- Sure, they definitely have some assets for the future. I just think Hinkie's hardball nitty ways are going to bite him. Like why wouldn't you just keep KJ McDaniels, 3yr/10million is a asset in the current CBA environment. Embiid getting healthy is a long shot. I don't want to flood the comments, sixers def have some potential but they also deserve hate [TFergBaby]
