Probable Lou Williams LAL, Probable Open link
Williams missed the past 2 games and is probable Tuesday (personal). He has rejoined the team in Philadelphia and should be available to play Tuesday.
Active Jimmy Butler CHI Open link
Butler has made it clear to the media that he will play through the sore heel issue he has had since at least last Friday. The Bulls have confirmed that there is nothing structurally wrong with his foot, and while there's a tinge of concern that he could be making whatever the problem is worse, it's great from a short-term fantasy perspective that he is powering through.
Questionable Aaron Brooks CHI, Questionable Open link
Brooks missed the past 4 games and is questionable Wednesday (hamstring strain). He participated in most of Tuesday's light practice but remains questionable for Wednesday against the Nuggets.
Doubtful Kirk Hinrich CHI, Doubtful Open link
Hinrich missed last game and is doubtful for Wednesday (hip pointer). Coach Hoiberg said Hinrich will likely be out Wednesday against the Nuggets.
Active Alex Len PHO, Active Open link
Len is starting at center again Tuesday with Tyson Chandler (hamstring) out. Len has played 16 and 28 minutes in his last two spot starts, making his value risky, but the presence of Brook Lopez could keep him on the floor longer.

(Not So) Little Drummond Boy

December 1, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

If you drafted Andre Drummond, you know your free throws are kaput. So, just sit back and enjoy the rest of the sweet, sweet numbers. Drummond piled them on against the new Sixers, at least defensively for fantasy purposes, the Houston Rockets.

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.

November 28, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

As you've probably noticed, the waiver wire section was omitted from the Weekly Primer article last week. That will be the case moving forward, as Matt Smith handles the weekly primer from now on, covering ways to maximise your output from the schedule.

Stanley Johnson- I think SVG really likes him and is going to give him a lot of PT because he has too much raw talent [#48340]

Kent Bazemore- yes, you should not be feeling good about that trade. Bazemore is what he is at this point in his career despite hot start. Clarkson young player with growing role throughout season. Should have thought more long-term. [dishinNswishin]
100% agree

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson- there will be nights where he is a poor man's Aminu, and nights where he is a rich mans. Typical rookie ups and downs but its clear that the Nets view him as a centerpiece of their future. [#27761]

Kent Bazemore- I traded Clarkson for Baze hoping for better %s and more steals. Other stats are a wash. Day after trade committed, Baze gets benched. Should I be killing myself right now? [qqmao]

Kent Bazemore- Minutes are a worry if you picked him up for the volume pts/3s, but for many, it'll be hard to find danny green-lite numbers off the waiver (12h2h) in my opinion. And for what it's worth, the guy was put in for the pivotal 4th quarter defensive stops. Still feel like he's worth owning for the defensive stats alone, despite 20-25 minute outlook. [drkinbote]

DeMarre Carroll- Trade Mason Plumlee and Markieff Morris for DeMarre? 9cat H2H, 12 tm [ajh22]
50% agree

TJ Warren- Dwayne Wade till his wheels are off... [LGLP86]
100% agree

TJ Warren- Rondae, Stanley, TJ, or ... D Wade? ROS 12league [righaya]
0% agree

Marco Belinelli- are last two games what we should expect from belinelli? lower minutes and lower production more realistic ROS than the string of good games in Nov? [Pelagamj]

Stanley Johnson- this is the time to pick him up, arrow firmly pointing upward [gameover]
100% agree

Michael Carter-Williams- MCW or collison? both dropped from my league, i m holding JR smith and Bazemore, who should i drop or add? [rrronaldlee]
50% agree

Nikola Mirotic- San Antonio has been killing everyone on defense. [Jayde]

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson- Is he a poor man's Aminu or a rich man's Aminu? Thinking of making that move.... [hugandi]

Kawhi Leonard- Haha I know I know, just an amazing statline really. [bonezi89]
100% agree

Nikola Mirotic- What's wrong with him? his aways stats is good but his home stats, meh [Donnie99]
0% agree
