Out Carmelo Anthony NYK, Out Open link
Anthony is out for Sunday's game (illness). Lance Thomas will start in his place.
Out Harrison Barnes GSW, Out Open link
Barnes missed last game and is out for Monday (left ankle).
Out Andrea Bargnani BKN, Out Open link
Bargnani left Sunday's game with a tight left hamstring and won't return.
Jackson was recorded by a fan that was heckling him, and he cussed at that fan. Fines and suspensions have come down on players in the past who have inappropriate interactions with fans that are released public. As such, it's possible he could face some form of punishment from the league or Pistons this week.
Active Evan Turner BOS, Active Open link
Turner is active for Sunday's game (poked eye). He is not on the injury report, so it appears he is in the clear to play Sunday.

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.

Matt Smith: @SmanSports


Greg Oden- We will be adding a difference column for these two which should be what you need. [kslight]

Jerryd Bayless- Ok thanks for the input. Morris is a little worse (~20 ranks) than normal in our 11-cat league because we have 3PT%. [Jayde]

Jerryd Bayless- If Marcus Morris is your worst player, I would CONSIDER making that move, and I personally would be OK making it, but Morris is in a good position, having the starting SF job in Detroit, and if this experiment with Bayless starting doesn't work, Kidd has other options he can consider in a few games. There's some risk in that move. [kylemckeown16]

Harrison Barnes- Are we waiting it out with HB? Casspi is on the ww and he projects similarly, with worse TO. Drop for Casspi? [saintsintosea]

Nikola Jokic- Any reason to think Jokic gets better than his current string of games? Dieng is starting to look like the better option, no? [scottkdouglas]

Gorgui Dieng- What to do, finally played alongside Towns? [Hawks 20]

Jerryd Bayless- Hey Kyle, I am thinking of adding Bayless but still having a lot of difficulty with H2H projections here. He's ranked ~40 in my league full season but projected ~140. Where is the reality here? (e.g. what level player is worth dropping here... I assume an 8th rounder like Marcus Morris is probably worth the swap?) [Jayde]

TJ McConnell- Drop TJ for Shane Larkin in a 14 team H2H league? [h0wodd]

Karl-Anthony Towns- On the positive side, it looks gieng and kat are closing the game together. Maybe the coach will finally realize this is by far their best frontcourt combination defensively and offensively. [hsahardid]
100% agree

Karl-Anthony Towns- Didn't steal a game against the clippers and still benched him. I don't agree with the rationale of not giving him consistent 30+ mins. He was handling it and wasn't getting injured. Wiggins played a ton of mins last year and didn't hurt him. Just a bunch of b.s. [hsahardid]
100% agree

Greg Oden- Is there a way to run a BBM report that would show Actual Value, Projected Value, and Variance in 3 columns. If you sorted by variance, it would become a "Buy low" or "Sell high" report that would be very useful! [JonathanHarris]

TJ McConnell- Still holding TJ. Someone dropped Cory Joseph in my 16 teamer. Would you drop TJ for Cory? [#19032]
100% agree

Tyson Chandler- Chandler has better Rotisserie upside because of what we've seen him do with his percentages over his career, though he's struggled to find a groove on offense this season with the Suns. Bogut is better in H2H because he can dish and get blocks in limited minutes. If Chandler isn't producing in the percentages, though, his value is really hurt in all formats. [kylemckeown16]

Rodney Hood- I would take Hood's higher overall potential this season. Smith's role will shrink a little if the Cavs get healthy with Irving and Shumpert back over the next month or so. [kylemckeown16]

DeMarcus Cousins- Demarcus Cousins...While his talent is undeniable, there's always something with him. He's already had two injury stints in the first month of this season plus a suspension. Last season he only played 59 games due to a viral infection and other factors. Any time he misses is catastrophic to fantasy teams because your points and rebounds fall off a cliff without him. A headache to own. [webslinger48]
