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.
Out DeMarcus Cousins SAC, Out Open link
Cousins missed the past 2 games and is out Saturday (lower back strain). Quincy Acy gains 10 minutes. Kosta Koufos gains 9 minutes. Willie Cauley-Stein gains 7 minutes. Omri Casspi gains 6 minutes.
Out Lou Williams LAL, Out Open link
Williams is out for Saturday's game (personal). His grandfather passed away, and he's left the team to be with family. Marcelo Huertas gains 12 minutes. Nick Young gains 5 minutes.
Active Meyers Leonard POR, Active Open link
Leonard missed the past 7 games and is active Saturday (dislocated shoulder). He said he's been cleared and is good to go, and Terry Stotts said the team would probably use Leonard the way they usually do. Leonard is listed as the starter in the pregame notes released by the team.
Active Kobe Bryant LAL, Active Open link
Bryant missed the Lakers' morning shootaround but will play in Saturday's game. This is just the Lakers finding a way to keep him rested. However, with b2b set on tap, he may sit out Sunday's game against the Pacers.

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?

Clint Capela- would you drop Bazemore for Clint? [thechampishere]

Patrick Beverley- I'm only considering adding Beverley in my 14-team and larger H2H leagues. I don't trust his FG% for Rotisserie leagues, and he doesn't put up enough gross stats to be worth owning in most standard leagues with 10 or 12 teams. [kylemckeown16]

Clint Capela- Yes. Capela has more upside than Biyombo. Can't necessarily trust that Capela will keep the job, but we also know Biyombo won't keep his job when Valanciunas is back, so I'd go with Capela over Biyombo in all formats. [kylemckeown16]

Patrick Beverley- Drop Mo Williams for Patpat? [kr0z3n]

Jerami Grant- PaulK555 - Thanks for the heads up, man. We'll take a look at it. [kylemckeown16]

Damian Lillard- Trade off Lillard for Cousins? Already have Drummond. League with no Percentages and TO but with DD [Benniepie]

Clint Capela- His outlook better than biyombo correct? I'm not too concerned with his FT as I have harden [TFergBaby]

Terrence Jones- Wouldn't drop Tjones for Leonard until we see more of former in bench role and latter post-surgery. And I wouldn't drop in a 10 team yet [lang55]
0% agree

Meyers Leonard- Of those 3 I would probably drop Bogut. More upside with other 2 [lang55]
100% agree

Karl-Anthony Towns- vv That's actually pretty smart... [kitchles]
100% agree

Tyreke Evans- Same surgery Westbrook had on his knee last time. Also what Mozgov had on the offseason. As in Mozgov's case, sometimes the knee can still bother them. Westbrook recovered very well though...but he's also a cyborg. [Jayde]
100% agree

Clint Capela- Who knows if Capela starting sticks, but Bickerstaff said, "I liked that lineup. Defensively, with that crew we should be really good. We are long, we have size." [ncognito]

Terrence Jones- im thinking so...maybe capella might be better [benrv21]

Joffrey Lauvergne- Hopefully he gets back into the rotation. [jclee4]

Terrence Jones- Droppable in a shallow 10 team, or exercise some patience? [big3]
