November 10, 2018, 6:54 pmTim Hardaway Jr. - G - New York Knicks
Tim Hardaway Jr. went 11-of-17 from the field on Saturday afternoon, leading the Knicks with 27 points in a loss to the Raptors.
Hardaway added two threes, four rebounds, two assists and a steal today. He's just pouring in points this year and is going to surpass his ADP barring a truly dreadful slump. It's not impossible with THJ but he's looking like a solid top-75 player all season long, though he's currently inside the top-50.
November 16, 2018, 3:47 pmTorrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets
Torrey Craig (left hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.
Craig is simply not getting enough usage on a loaded Nuggets team to be useful in standard leagues.

November 16, 2018, 3:31 pmMichael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets
As expected, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Sixers.
Kidd-Gilchrist wasn't likely to be available, and that has been confirmed. In his absence, Miles Bridges will pick up some slack. There's no timetable for MKG's return, so Bridges could be a deep-league play for a few games.

November 16, 2018, 3:00 pmTrevor Ariza - F - Phoenix Suns
Trevor Ariza has been ruled out for Saturday's game as he deals with a personal matter.
Ariza has been a little disappointing to start the year. The low shooting percentage is standard, but we were expecting a couple more points than this, and some more 3-pointers and steals to buoy his value especially when the shot isn't falling well. He should rise into top-75ish value eventually so for now it's just a waiting game.

November 16, 2018, 2:55 pmLuka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic practiced on Friday and will play in Saturday's game against the Warriors.
Doncic will be available after some concern about his shoulder. He has been quite good this season and has exceeded expectations offensively. He should continue to be a mid-round value.

November 16, 2018, 2:52 pmMichael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist missed his second practice in a row and is unlikely for Saturday's game against the Sixers.
Kidd-Gilchrist has been somewhat useful as a low-end asset thus far this season, sitting on the cusp of top-150 value. His absence means a bump for Miles Bridges, who joins him right in that similar range with a similar stat line. Bridges has some upside to be a top-130 option with five more minutes per contest.

November 16, 2018, 2:01 pmAlex Abrines - G - Oklahoma City Thunder
Alex Abrines was held out of practice on Friday and will be re-evaluated before the game on Saturday.
Abrines is dealing with some flu-like symptoms and was held out of practice. He will travel with the team and get a designation before Saturday's tipoff. Check back in if you're in a position where the 3-point specialist is important enough to roll out.

November 16, 2018, 1:57 pmRussell Westbrook - G - Oklahoma City Thunder
Russell Westbrook practiced Friday but his availability for Saturday is still uncertain.
It seems like a long shot that Westbrook would be back for Saturday's game. Expect him to be unavailable for at least another week and plan accordingly.

November 16, 2018, 1:50 pmKyle Korver - G/F - Cleveland Cavaliers
Kyle Korver expects to play on Monday against the Pistons.
The Cavs have a long layoff between their Wednesday night game and this upcoming contest against the Pistons. This has given Korver time to get on the right track to play in the next one. He has almost zero fantasy appeal at this stage in his career. Check back on Monday to confirm his status. Ho, hum.

November 16, 2018, 1:43 pmWesley Matthews - G/F - Dallas Mavericks
Wesley Matthews is doubtful for Saturday's game.
Matthews is secretly a valuable glorified 3-point specialist. He's sitting at 100 in 9-cat formats on a per-game basis as a high volume shooter and a decent scorer. His vacated minutes are probably spread through the rotation and there isn't one main beneficiary right now.

November 16, 2018, 1:37 pmAllonzo Trier - G - New York Knicks
Allonzo Trier will start over Noah Vonleh on Friday.
The master tinkerer is at it again. Coach David Fizdale is making yet another change to the Knicks lineup. Trier has been useful in deep leagues as a plug and play option but even with more deployment his upside is limited by his skillset. Noah Vonleh's top-160ish value may also drop off a little bit. Both are deep league fliers for now.
