Al Horford (undisclosed) left Wednesday's game against the Knicks during the second quarter and quickly returned.
Horford had been probable for this game with a sore knee so that's the first area of concern but this doesn't seem serious.
November 12, 2019, 11:15 pmBruce BrownSG, Detroit Pistons
Bruce Brown Jr. (right knee contusion) handed out 11 assists on Tuesday while also providing three points and seven rebounds in 36 minutes.
This game had some garbage time and plenty of missing Pistons, so it's hard to get a read on what's sustainable. With Blake Griffin, Reggie Jackson and Derrick Rose sitting out tonight, Brown was able to handle the ball more than usual and showed off his point guard skills. Another player that benefitted from these circumstances was Christian Wood who went for 16 points, three boards, two steals, two blocks and a three in 26 minutes. Wood can produce well when given the minutes, but this is just the third time he's exceeded 20 minutes with the Pistons and Griffin's return is likely to make that even rarer.
November 12, 2019, 11:14 pmWendell Carter Jr.C, Chicago Bulls
Wendell Carter Jr. recorded a 17-point, 12-rebound double-double for the Bulls and nothing else in Tuesday's 120-102 win over the Knicks.
WCJ's lack of blocks tonight was a downer but the takeaway tonight is that the big man was healthy enough to put in 35 minutes in this game. The stats will follow. For now, we're just happy to see Carter stay healthy and on the floor.
November 12, 2019, 11:07 pmChandler HutchisonSF, Chicago Bulls
Chandler Hutchison logged 21 empty minutes as a starter on Tuesday, posting seven points 2-of-4 shooting, one 3-pointer, three rebounds and one assist.
Hutchison is a short-term placeholder for Otto Porter (left foot sprain), keeping his ceiling stuck as a deep-league asset.
November 12, 2019, 11:05 pmLuke KennardSG, Detroit Pistons
Luke Kennard hit four 3-pointers for the third straight game as part of a 22-point performance on 8-of-18 shooting with five dimes and two steals in 38 minutes on Tuesday in a loss to the Heat.
Kennard's hot start continues. Derrick Rose was out once again tonight, and while Kennard will undoubtedly lose touches as the Pistons get some players back from injury, he's established himself as a top offensive option.
November 12, 2019, 11:04 pmCoby WhitePG, Chicago Bulls
Coby White set a new Bulls franchise record on Tuesday as he hit seven 3-pointers in the fourth quarter en route to his 27 points (8-of-14 shooting), also a career-high, with three rebounds, one assist and one steal.
This is the fantastic ceiling that White possesses and is the reason why the Bulls drafted him. He outplayed Tomas Satoransky (five points, two rebounds, two assists, 23 minutes) and could eventually take his starting job. White is worth a stash despite his ups and downs, for his second-half breakout potential.
November 12, 2019, 10:57 pmJulius RandlePF, New York Knicks
Julius Randle struggled with his shot, going 5-for-15 from the field and 6-for-9 from the line for 17 points, six rebounds, three assists one 3-pointer and two steals.
Randle is outside the top-250 right now, which is not something that's going to hold. He's a buy-low candidate right now, but calibrate the price you're paying as the Pelicans-Randle is a thing of the past.
November 12, 2019, 10:56 pmAnthony DavisPF-C, Los Angeles Lakers
Anthony Davis returned to the bench holding his right side but told coaches he can check back in, and he's now done so.
That sounds about right, as this seems to happen more games than not for Davis. A post-game update should clarify what happened.

Trevor Ariza went to the locker room in the first half on Tuesday.
An update should be available soon.

Marcus Morris shot 6-of-17 from the field and 7-of-9 from the line to end Tuesday night with 22 points, nine rebonds, one assist, three triples and one block.
Morris also committed six turnovers which was a buzzkill to his 9-cat appeal. He's still a mid-round play and has been one of the pillars of consistency on a volatile Knicks roster.
November 12, 2019, 10:50 pmAnthony DavisPF-C, Los Angeles Lakers
Anthony Davis went to the locker room at the end of the third quarter on Tuesday.
Davis has been banged up all season, but he's played through it. Hopefully this one is just another ding.
