• Andre Roberson¬†(leg) took an ugly fall during the third quarter of Saturday’s game against the Pistons, and had to be carted off by a stretcher.

    He landed hard on his tailbone or leg and couldn’t walk. We’ll have more updates as they roll in but it doesn’t look good at all. Terrance Ferguson would be the initial beneficiary.

    Update: The fear is a ruptured patellar tendon for Andre Roberson after his ugly fall against the Pistons. Further testing is required to determine the severity.

    Update: Roberson will be further evaluated in Oklahoma City, but the expectation is he’ll undergo season-ending surgery to repair a ruptured patellar tendon.

  • Anfernee Simons
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Anfernee Simons got his first start of the season in place of Damian Lillard (back spasms) on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans and he did reasonably well, putting up 13 points (4-of-13 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    The only other start of Simons' career was last season's finale in which he played all 48 minutes and scored 37 points. He won't be matching that anytime soon, but tonight's serviceable line is another step in the right direction for the 20-year-old. Simons is not worth rostering in a standard league, but he's a fine 3-point streamer, especially when he gets spot starts like this.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony debuted with the Blazers on Tuesday, starting and going for 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting, four boards, two treys and a block in a 104-115 loss to the Pelicans.

    It's a solid start for Melo, who played in just 10 games last season for the Rockets but averaged 13.4 points per game. Damian Lillard (back spasms) missed this game, so he may not get up to 14 field goal attempts on a regular basis. He's not a must-add player in standard leagues, but he's worth paying attention to. And that shouldn't be tough, given all the coverage you're sure to hear.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green sleeved up his banged arm on the bench and looks like he's ready to return to Tuesday's game.

    Green is one tough cookie, so it's no surprise that he's gutting this one out. Owners can breathe a sigh of relief.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green checked out of the game on Tuesday after appearing to bang is elbow during a hard fall.

    Green will get his elbow checked out for sure, but hopefully the rough fall mostly just knocked the wind out of him. Stay tuned for updates.

  • Trevor Ariza
    SF, Sacramento Kings

    Trevor Ariza will miss Tuesday's game vs. the Suns due to right groin soreness.

    Ariza has not been a player of note in fantasy so far this season, so his absence is of little consequence to most managers. However, with him out, expect to see some younger guys take the minutes he's leaving on the table.

  • Frank Kaminsky
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Frank Kaminsky (left hip contusion) is available and listed as a starter for the Suns on Tuesday.

    The Tank will be manning the five spot while Aron Baynes (right hip contusion) is sitting this one out, making Kaminsky an intriguing DFS punt play.

    Ricky Rubio is active and will start for the Suns on Tuesday.

    Rubio was a game-time call and it looks like the Spanish Suave is ready to roll. He will be good for a points, steals, a couple of threes and steals as per his usual output.
