2 years agoIndiana Pacers forward/center Domantas Sabonis has been ruled out for the second straight game with a calf injury. The team is calling it a right calf contusion and Sabonis will miss Wednesday's game against the Pistons, but is considered day-to-day. The fact he's listed day-to-day gives hope that Sabonis could return against the Chicago Bulls on Friday. Myles Turner and Thaddeus Young will see a heavy workload on Wednesday, and Al Jefferson should see plenty of backup minutes.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Indiana Pacers

2 years agoDetroit Pistons forward/center Jon Leuer has been ruled out for his third straight game on Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers. The left ankle continues to bother Leuer, and it sounds like he's doubtful to play Friday against the Hawks. Anthony Tolliver and Eric Moreland will split the minutes, but it's only about 12-15 minutes combined. Neither player will be an option for fantasy leagues. Once Leuer returns he could be an option if he gets minutes in the 20-25 range otherwise keep him on the waiver wire.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: James Edwards III

2 years agoDetroit Pistons guard/forward Stanley Johnson has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers. Johnson was unable to practice on Tuesday due to a hip injury, so it's not too surprising he's been ruled out for this contest. With Johnson on the sideline, the Pistons could go with Reggie Bullock as starter, but haven't announced it yet. Luke Kennard could also be in line for more minutes, but neither player really has much value tonight against Indiana.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Jake Chapman

2 years agoOrlando Magic point guard Elfrid Payton (hamstring) could return to the court after an eight-game absence. Payton didn't go through shootaround, but is listed as a game-time decision against the New York Knicks on Wednesday. The fact he didn't go through shootaround is a bad sign, but he'll test his hamstring closer to tip-off. If Payton can't play then Jonathan Simmons would get another start on Wednesday. Shelvin Mack would log in extra minutes off the bench.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: John Denton

2 years agoPhildelphia 76ers guard Jerryd Bayless has been ruled out indefinitely following Tuesday's win over the Utah Jazz. Bayless was forced to miss Tuesday's game and his timetable is unknown after the swelling in his left wrist didn't go down. He bruised it in Friday's victory over the Pacers, and it continues to bother him. The team is unsure how long Bayless will be sidelined, but Dario Saric should remain starter in his place. Timothe Luwawu and T.J. McConnell will both see extra minutes with Bayless out.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Philadelphia Inquirer & Daily News

2 years agoWashington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal played well on Tuesday night. Beal scored 23 points on 40 percent from the field and 37 percent from beyond the arc. However, it wasn't enough as his team would fall to the Dallas Mavericks 113-90. Though the team's record doesn't reflect it, Beal has been playing fantastic as of late, averaging 34 points so far in the month of November. With the Wizards playing as fast as they do, it wouldn't be out of the question for him to continue to put up big-time fantasy numbers, possibly even rivaling the production of point guard John Wall moving forward.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoWashington Wizards John Wall (shoulder) returned to the court after missing Sunday's matchup against the Toronto Raptors. However, it didn't make a difference as his team would go on to fall to the struggling Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night. Wall recorded a double-double, scoring 23 points and dishing out 14 assists. Though the veteran is playing well, he has seen his production dip this season, averaging 20 points per game, three points less than where he was a season ago. Nonetheless, he is still a productive fantasy option that always plays a ton of minutes and puts up a bunch of shots whenever he steps on the court.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoDallas Mavericks small forward Harrison Barnes led his team to a 113-99 victory over the Washington Wizards, snapping a six-game skid. Barnes play fantastic on Tuesday night, scoring 31 points on 11-for-18 from the field and 2-for-2 from behind the arc. He also pulled down nine boards and threw in a block and a steal to finish out the night. Though Barnes is averaging 18 points on the season, he will battle with occasional bouts of inconsistent play, something fantasy owners will have to accept if they plan on retaining his services moving forward.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoDallas Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki was statistically irrelevant during the 113-99 win over the Washington Wizards. With the victory, the team snapped a six game skid. The 39-year old played only 19 minutes, scoring six points on 3-of-5 shooting. Though he still commands a great deal of respect when on the floor, it appears as if his best days are behind him as he is only averaging 10 points and five boards on the year. With his production gradually falling from year-to-year, it may be a good idea to consider dealing him if the price is right.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoPhiladelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons continues his impressive campaign, filling up the box score as the Sixers went into Utah and took care of the Jazz with a 104-96 road win with center Joel Embiid sitting out due to "rest." The 21-year old Australian led the Sixers with 16 points, adding 16 rebounds, six assists, three steals and three blocks. This all-around performance improves the team to a record of 6-4, where they suddenly look like the dangerous playoff team that many predicted. It is an encouraging sign as the rookie continues to play heavy minutes without any health issues or minutes restriction as he's playing over 35 minutes per game this season. The "point-forward" experiment is as advertised as Simmons looks capable of handling the ball against any type of defense. With this performance, Simmons is up to fifth-round value on the year, where he will only get better as the season progresses.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoMilwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo continues to put up video-game numbers, dropping 40 points, nine rebounds, three assists and four blocks on an efficient 16 of 21 shooting in the loss to Cleveland. The "Greek Freak" is absolutely on fire this season as he's doing everything possible for his team to earn wins. The NBA's top scorer is leading his team in scoring, rebounding, assists and steals. There wasn't much more that he could do as the Bucks just couldn't contain LeBron James and the Cavaliers. Antetokounmpo did have eight turnovers on the night but continues to dominate box scores every time that he steps on the floor. From a fantasy perspective, owners can rest easy as the 22-year old appears to be a lock to finish top-5 in standard leagues with the upside to finish the season as fantasy's best overall player.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoOklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook had 20 points, 12 rebounds and six assists, but his shooting struggles continued Tuesday night, missing 14 of his 21 shot attempts. The former MVP also committed seven turnovers as the Thunder lost to the Kings 86-94. This marks the Thunder's third straight loss, showing that the "OK3" experiment is still a work in progress. Westbrook has taken a huge dip in his numbers, where his usage rate dropped to 31.3 on the year compared to 41.4 last season. The "Brodie" is unlikely to hit his average of 31.6 points that he had last season, but he should be able to improve on his current average of 20.1 points per game. Buy low on Westbrook if you can.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: Basketball-Reference

2 years agoDallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. finally busted out, leading his team to an unexpected 113-99 win over John Wall and the Wizards. The explosive rookie held his own against Wall and had a career-best 22 points. He also eight rebounds, eight assists and a steal to finish out the night. Smith Jr. has struggled mightily so far this season, shooting only 40 percent from the field and a forgettable 58 percent from the line. He has improved as of late, hitting 3-of-3 from the charity stripe on Tuesday and is 9-of-10 in his last six games. This was obviously a great sign for the rookie as he is showing that he can at least flash efficiently and his upside when he's locked in. There will be bumps along the ride, but expect Smith Jr. to get better as season goes on.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: NBA

2 years agoCleveland Cavaliers power forward/center Kevin Love played a terrific game in the win over the Bucks, scoring a season-high 32 points. He also had 16 boards, three dimes, two steals, and a block to finish out the night. Love was a game-time decision heading into Tuesday night as he left Sunday's game against the Atlanta Hawks due to an illness and finished with only 4 points on 1-of-6 shooting so this performance should erase any concerns about his health going forward. Love was efficient all night, connecting on 9-of-14 shots and 14-of-16 freebies. We would love to see Love improve on his season average of 17.6 points per game on only 42 percent shooting. Hopefully this will propel his confidence as Cleveland heads to Houston to visit James Harden and the Rockets on Thursday night.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 years agoCleveland Cavaliers point guard Derrick Rose has a favorable matchup on Tuesday night against a Milwaukee Bucks team that is giving up just under 22 points per game to opposing lead guards this season. However, the injury-plagued veteran has already missed time this season and has not been playing well either, averaging only 15 points on the year. Though he has the chance to make the most out of his time as a member of the starting unit, things aren't looking good at the moment. If you are a Rose owner, it may be a good idea to get rid of him while he still has a little value left because his numbers will likely plummet once point guard Isaiah Thomas (hip) finds his way back on the court.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
