Probable Ricky Rubio MIN, Probable Open link
Rubio missed the past 2 games and is probable Tuesday (ankle). He practiced fully Monday, but until we actually see Rubio announced as being the starter Tuesday, there's going to be a fair amount of skepticism regarding his availability given some of the late scratches that have been handed out by the Timberwolves this season.
Out Chris Kaman POR, Out Open link
Kaman missed the past 5 games and is out Monday (ankle).
Probable Norris Cole NOR, Probable Open link
Cole is probable for Tuesday's game (ankle sprain). Coach Gentry said that Cole and Tyreke Evans should play Tuesday unless something bizarre happens.
Probable Tyreke Evans NOR, Probable Open link
Evans is probable for Tuesday's game (knee). Coach Gentry said that both Evans and Norris Cole are expected to play Tuesday unless something bizzare happens.
Active Jimmy Butler CHI Open link
Butler has an undisclosed right foot injury that he's been playing through for at least the last couple games. He's played with it so far, and the Bulls haven't added him to the injury report, but it's worth acknowledging in case it worsens and he needs to sit out any games.

By George, He's Done It Again

November 30, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

Paul George's presence as a top 10 player is certainly surprising to me, as he has overcome a significant mental hurdle to not only get back to his best but to somehow be far and away a better player than he was pre-injury. Congratulations if you drafted him.

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.

Ty Lawson- in weekly projections he is at 36 min/gm [rexs]
0% agree

Enes Kanter- He's not a must hold in a 10 team league. They just aren't using him enough [joshlloyd48]

Ty Lawson- when deciding on my weekly lineup, using the schedule analyzer tool, it is very disconcerting seeing him so highly ranked, and it is not only affecting him but how other players are ranked as well. [rexs]
0% agree

OJ Mayo- He was a replacement for Jabari Parker so it feels difficult to predict he will remain starting over Parker all season [joshlloyd48]

Ty Lawson- He isn't projected at 36 minutes a game anywhere. We've got him at 6 mpg. He's been out of rotation two of last three games with a backup game in the middle where Terry was out of rotation [joshlloyd48]

Ty Lawson- Is there any way you can adjust ty lawson projections, at least for the week.I don't see any way he is going to get 36 minutes/game this week when he isn't even in the rotation [rexs]
0% agree

Tyreke Evans- Does it seem reasonable to view Tyreke as a straight upgrade over Elfrid Payton, provided the injury doesn't slow him down too much? [Jayde]

Clint Capela- Capella or Dieng in a 10 team H-2-H league? [#48340]

Enes Kanter- worth a hold in a 10 team league? KCP, TJ warren among others on the wire. [topangatx27]

OJ Mayo- Is it possible he can lock down teh SG role here? Or was it a case of no vasquez and once healthy vasquez moves into PG role with Bayless playing SG. [tinog]

Kevin Martin- He is just hit the wire...Should I drop Kobe for him? [LGLP86]
50% agree

Nikola Jokic- That quote was from 6 days ago: [scottkdouglas]

Nikola Jokic- Jokic just 'earned' the starting spot. Drop Meyers Leonard for Nikola Jokic? [Benniepie]
0% agree

Isaiah Canaan- At this point I think it would be better off with him than Kobe for my punt FG%...What do ya think? [LGLP86]

Jeremy Lamb- Even when his FG% goes back down (which has yet to be known) he's still going to have late round value. [zheeduh]
