• Jeremy Lin
    G, Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin scored seven points on 1-of-4 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

    The Hawks were winning and Trae Young (17 & 10) had a good game, so the result here isn't too surprising. Lin has forced his way into the top-150 on the season and has been much better than that lately. At 25-27 mpg he's an easy top-100 guy and he's been a top-50 player over the last two weeks at 23.2 mpg. There's enough value here for owners to consider him a must-own player in 12-team standard formats.

Fantasy News

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets are expected to sign free agent Iman Shumpert.

    Shumpert is unlikely to have a major role, but it's worth noting that Caris LeVert has been visiting thumb specialists. In any case, the Nets had a roster spot available until mid-December when Wilson Chandler returns from suspension.

  • Tyler Herro
    PG, Miami Heat

    Tyler Herro is questionable to face the Cavs on Thursday due to illness.

    Goran Dragic seems to be fighting a similar sickness. Justise Winslow definitely won't play, so the Heat could be very thin if Herro and Dragic are unavailable. Duncan Robinson should play even more heavily in that scenario.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic is considered questionable to play on Thursday due to illness.

    Justise Winslow has already been ruled out with a concussion. Dragic has been a bright spot for the Heat so far, but we'll have to see if he is able to face the Cavs.

  • Caris LeVert
    PG-SG, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets have sent Caris LeVert to specialists due to fears that he could have ligament damage in his right thumb.

    Nothing is certain at the moment, but this is worrying news for LeVert's fantasy owners. For the moment, expect Garrett Temple to stay in the starting lineup.

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Omari Spellman is questionable to face the Lakers on Wednesday due to a left ankle sprain.

    This is an upgrade from Spellman's prior status of doubtful. However, Draymond Green's return has cut into his minimal fantasy value.

  • Khyri Thomas
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Khyri Thomas underwent foot surgery and will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

    Thomas can begin rehab right away, but he will likely be out for two months or more. Even when healthy, Thomas has not been fantasy relevant.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball will not face the Clippers on Thursday due to his right adductor strain.

    This isn't surprising, as he was not expected to return prior to Saturday. Kenrich Williams should remain in the starting lineup for now.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said that Brandon Ingram will be a game-time decision on Thursday due to right knee soreness.

    It's positive news that Ingram could possibly return already. He missed Monday's contest after the knee began bothering him following practice.

  • Myles Turner
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Myles Turner is making progress with his sprained right ankle but is still considered day-to-day.

    At this point, he seems unlikely to play on Friday. JaKarr Sampson has been starting recently with T.J. Leaf coming off the bench, but neither has really distinguished himself in the last couple of games.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb has been doing light workouts as he rehabs his sprained left ankle and is unlikely to be available on Friday.

    Lamb hasn't appeared in a game since November 5. Expect Aaron Holiday to start as long as Lamb is absent.
