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.
Questionable Patrick Beverley HOU, Questionable Open link
Beverley missed the past 5 games and is questionable Wednesday (ankle sprain). He went through all of the morning shootaround, so it sounds like he should be returning on a minutes limit Wednesday and will be coming off the bench. We'll keep an eye on his official status, but it appears Beverley should be back Wednesday.
Active Nicolas Batum CHA, Active Open link
Batum is active for Wednesday's game (gastroenteritis). He said he feels well enough to play his usual minutes, too.
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.
Questionable LaMarcus Aldridge SAS, Questionable Open link
Aldridge missed the past 2 games and remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks (ankle). However, when prompted who would guard Dirk Nowitzki on Wednesday, teammate Boris Diaw said that Aldridge probably would. That may have been a slip-up by Diaw, or he may not even know if Aldridge is playing and is just making an assumption.

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.

Jusuf Nurkic- #19032 - Love it, man. That's a great grab. Jealous. :) [kylemckeown16]

Draymond Green- LGL - Thanks for the nudge. We'll look at it. His assists have been awesome. [kylemckeown16]

Jusuf Nurkic- He was actually dropped and on the wire in my 16 team H2H. Only had to drop Ezeli for him. Only problem is stashing JV and Nurk now with no IR spots. We'll see if I can last. [#19032]
100% agree

Ty Lawson- While I am holding Lawson in a league or two through at least the end of this week, I don't know that I'd spend any FAAB on him unless the situation changes. Right now, it's looking like Lawson might be the #3 PG with Beverley expected to return. Crappy shituation. [kylemckeown16]

Ty Lawson- Worth $5 FAAB (waiver) bid in 14 teamer? [patentboy23]

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]
