• Jrue Holiday - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday played valiantly in Friday's 103-107 loss to the Grizzlies, tallying 20 points, 11 assists, five rebounds and one blocked shot.

    This fell short of Holiday's stat-sheet-stuffing performances in recent games, but owners will be happy to take his double-double nonetheless. With Elfrid Payton expected to miss December as he recovers from surgery on his finger, count on Holiday to make this holiday season merry and bright for managers who trusted him with their late second-round picks on draft day.

Fantasy News

  • Raul Neto - G - Utah Jazz

    Raul Neto (right thigh soreness) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Neto was originally listed as available, but now has a chance of missing this game. There isn't much impact for fantasy leagues.

  • Dennis Smith Jr. - G - Dallas Mavericks

    Dennis Smith Jr. (sprained right wrist) is getting closer to a return and will be a starter when he returns, according to coach Rick Carlisle.

    Carlisle raved about the play of rookie Jalen Brunson in his spot starts, but ultimately DSJ is still the starting point guard. We don't know when he'll return as he had not practiced as of Tuesday and has missed a week with the injury. Brunson should continue to start as long as DSJ is out.

  • Dirk Nowitzki - F - Dallas Mavericks

    Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) remains questionable for Wednesday's game and coach Rick Carlisle said he is "getting closer."

    This is the first time Dirk has been listed as something other than out, which is encouraging. We'd expect Dirk to sit this one out, but Carlisle declined to say whether or not he will be active. It seems like it will truly be a game-time decision. Dirk is worth a flier in deep leagues, but you may want to wait for the rust to come off in standard leagues.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    Kawhi Leonard (bruised right hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

    Leonard sat out the front end of the team's back-to-back on Tuesday. This was either because the injury is a small concern or so he could play against the Warriors, we'd guess it's the latter. Watch his status as we get closer to game-time. If he does miss again, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam will fill the minutes and usage.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Mike Conley (hamstring) will play on Wednesday night, per coach J.B. Bickerstaff.

    Conley was questionable but participated in shootaround. He did say that he didn't want to push his hamstring, so a day off might be a good thing for him. If there is a re-injury, Shelvin Mack would be the add.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - Detroit Pistons

    Stanley Johnson is not listed on the team's pregame injury report and will play on Wednesday.

    Johnson will come off the bench as rookie Bruce Brown sticks in the starting lineup. Johnson is not worth owning in most leagues, especially with Reggie Bullock expected to return for Saturday's game.

  • Davis Bertans - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Davis Bertans is not listed on the Spurs' injury report for Thursday's game against the Clippers.

    Bertans missed the past two games as he and his wife welcomed their first child – congrats to the Bertans family. Bertans has started over Dante Cunningham at times, but even as a starter he wasn't holding standard league value. He helps the Spurs' depth in the frontcourt, but is only a deeper league play right now.

  • Anthony Davis - F/C - New Orleans Pelicans

    Coach Alvin Gentry said he wants to taper back the minutes for Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday starting with Wednesday's game.

    AD and Jrue are leading the NBA in minutes played right now, but being in the Western Conference, every game is vital. The Pels are also missing Nikola Mirotic, E'Twaun Moore and Elfrid Payton right now, making it harder to play your stars fewer minutes. The distribution of playing time will be something to watch for tonight's game.

  • Jeff Green - F - Washington Wizards

    Jeff Green will start for the injured Otto Porter Jr. against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Uncle Jeff has sustained top-150 value as mainly a bench player, so he should be a decent streaming option in this contest. Kelly Oubre is still the preferred fantasy option with Porter out. Markieff Morris and newly acquired Sam Dekker should help absorb the rest of the minutes.

  • E'Twaun Moore - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    E'Twaun Moore (lower leg) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Moore only played 16 minutes on Sunday and did not play on Monday. He's clearly not fully recovered yet and is starting to be hard to hold onto in standard leagues. Solomon Hill, Darius Miller and Wesley Johnson will continue to see increased minutes without Moore.
