Active Cody Zeller CHA, Active Open link
Zeller started the second half of Sunday's game after Al Jefferson was forced out of the game in the first half with a strained calf.
Out Al Jefferson CHA, Out Open link
Jefferson left Sunday's game against the with a strained left calf and won't return. Cody Zeller started in the second half in Jefferson's absence.
Questionable Jordan Hill IND, Questionable Open link
Hill missed last game and is questionable for Sunday (sore lower back). He went trough shootaround and feels better but is still a game-time decision for Sunday.
Probable Derrick Favors UTA, Probable Open link
Favors missed last game, but he returned to practice Sunday and is probable for Monday's game against the Warriors (personal).
Out Ricky Rubio MIN, Out Open link
Rubio missed last game and is out for Sunday (ankle). He still had soreness in his ankle when warming up Sunday, so the team is taking the cautious route. Zach LaVine should start again.

Anthony Davis, Come Save Us

November 29, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

So, it appears Chris Paul didn't end Anthony Davis' career Friday night, despite Twitter's protests, as AD was back and destroying again. The latest injury scare may be an opportunity to buy him as low as you'll ever see, but Saturday's output might reduce that chance.

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.

Draymond Green- Would you guys trade Mccollum and Dwill for Draymond? [tjf673]
100% agree

Jimmy Butler- Jump at it. Don't overthink it. Go get Jimmy. [kylemckeown16]

Darren Collison- MarkAlbert2KX -- Not much of one if we do. His role is in flux a bit as Geroge Karl seems to have started reducing Rondo's minutes to a more reasonable number. As that happens, Collison could edge closer to the current projection. Also, a big reason why his scoring is down is because he's struggling with his shot. That will normalize. I'll have someone else look at it, too, though. [kylemckeown16]

Nerlens Noel- @kylemckeown exactly. And if you were to trade Noel now you'd get very little value in return. You'd be better off waiting and seeing if he can achieve some of his ridiculous upside. If you remember last year he got off to a rough start but really turned it on at the end of the season. We could see the same trajectory this year as their young players gel [ak murthy]
100% agree

Jimmy Butler- got offer jimmy butler for covington and t young. h2h 14 team 11players. should i take it? [nejcjelovsek]
100% agree

John Wall- It's the entire Wizards. There's a lot of discontent there right now. Ted Leonsis is a patient owner, but if they continue to spiral, a shakeup could be coming. Apparently, the team has struggled to integrate their new offense, and it delayed them putting in their new defense, which the team is now trying to learn on the fly according to Wall. Gortat is calling for Nene to start again. It's a weird situation affecting a lot of the team right now. The page should turn eventually. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Nerlens Noel- When Kendall Marshall is healthy and playing (probably starting, imo), I would bet that Noel finds himself again. Ish Smith helped him become great last season, and another seasoned pass-first PG could do the same. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

Nerlens Noel- I know it's hard to be patient, but we are only a month into the NBA season. It can take a long time for new players to figure out how to play together, and the issue hasn't just been Noel and Okafor. It's also the fact that they have other new players mucking things up, too. Not a lot of consistency from game to game for them to find a consistent balance. [kylemckeown16]
100% agree

OJ Mayo- Mayo is starting today, so I'd hold onto him until we see how this plays out. However, I personally think the starting run will be short lived, since he's replacing Jabari Parker. It's hard to believe that Parker will spend much time in a bench role. [kylemckeown16]

Danny Green- Very frustrating. Holding him and JV. Probably wouldn't be worth much in a trade (unless your trade partner pays for BBM) and you can't outright drop him... [Koalaballa]

Jerryd Bayless- Bayless should be picked up anywhere he's available. Depending on how Sunday's game goes, I'll decide later whether I need to do a mass dropping of MCW from my rosters. [kylemckeown16]

OJ Mayo- drop him for staukas or mcconnell ? in 14 team league [shadygr8]

Jerryd Bayless- With Bayless starting over MCW today, what do you guys think? [Hawks 20]

Jerryd Bayless- Not expecting miracles here, but seems like his projections are a little low? Making it hard to project H2H results. Seems like his 3a/g are too low and his minutes are a couple shy. 3pt% is also way better and seems like enough of a sample size given his volume to justify a slight bump? Seems odd to be recommending him in the daily but still have him projected as a 13-14th round player. [Jayde]

Nerlens Noel- Nerlens Noel is a bust so far. I don't think he will regain his form from last year. Not with Jahlil there. Better to trade him for any value now. [lakersg]
