10/27:Boston Celtics forward Daniel Theis (foot) and center Aron Baynes (hamstring) are both listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Pistons. Theis suffered the injury against the Thunder on Thursday and Baynes has missed his two previous games. With more information regarding their respective availability coming after the morning shootaround, keep an eye on this situation as the day progresses. If they aren't able to go, expect more minutes for forward/center Al Horford and forward Marcus Morris against a tough Detroit interior defense.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: Quenton S. Albertie
10/27:Sacramento Kings shooting guard Iman Shumpert (hip) returned to action for Friday's 116-112 win against the Washington Wizards, although he was a non-factor. Shumpert ended up going scoreless across 17 minutes, misfiring on all four of his field-goal attempts, including a pair of treys. He was able to salvage the stat line somewhat with six rebounds and a blocked shot while turning it over just once, but he has now turned in three single-digit scoring performances over his five appearances. Shump remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Sacramento Kings power forward Nemanja Bjelica ended up with 26 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot in 36 minutes on Friday night against the Washington Wizards. He was 9-for-16 from the field, including an impressive 6-for-10 from behind the three-point arc and he turned it over just once. His versatility is making a believer out of head coach Dave Joerger, as Bjelica can rebound, block shots and hit triples. Fantasy owners are starting to believe, too, as his ownership percentage is on the rise.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: NBC Sports Bay Area - James Ham
10/27:Sacramento Kings power forward/center Willie Cauley-Stein finished Friday's 116-112 victory against the Washington Wizards with 17 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists across 33 minutes. He finished 7-for-15 from the field and he added two steals with three turnovers and a plus-15 rating. It helped that he was working against the overmatched Ian Mahinmi, who was making his way back from an injury. Cauley-Stein has scored in double digits in each of his six games, averaging 16.5 points per game while registering double-doubles in each of his past two contests. It appears the big man is taking that much anticipated next step toward fantasy stardom.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Washington Wizards small forward Jeff Green finished with 13 points and nine rebounds across 27 minutes off the bench in Friday's 116-112 loss against the Sacramento Kings. He also chipped in with three assists, a three-pointers and a blocked shot while hitting 5-for-8 from the field and 2-for-2 from the free-throw line. He was seeing plenty of playing time again with Otto Porter Jr. struggling with his shot. Green has hit double digits in points in four of his five contests, but this was his best shooting performance of the season. He is averaging 11.7 points and 6.0 rebounds over his past three outings. It looks like he'll continue to be a valuable contributor off the bench in D.C.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Washington Wizards small forward Otto Porter was limited to just five points over 22 minutes in Friday's 116-112 loss against the Sacramento Kings. He hit just 2-for-6 from the field while chipping in with three rebounds, two assists and two turnovers. With OPJ struggling with his shot, Kelly Oubre Jr. came off the bench and picked up the slack, dropping 22 points with five three-pointers in 29 minutes off the pine. Jeff Green also factored in a little more than usual to make up for Porter's deficiencies. He has missed more shots than he has made in four of his five games so far this season, hitting just 42.5 percent (20-for-47). Porter shot over 50.3 percent in each of his past two seasons, so he should straighten it out.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Washington Wizards small forward Kelly Oubre Jr. finished with 22 points across 29 minutes off the bench in Friday's 116-112 loss against the Sacramento Kings. He added nine rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot with just one turnover while going 8-for-13 from the field, including an impressive 5-for-8 from the perimeter. Oubre was feeling it with his shot, and he picked up some extra run with Otto Porter Jr. struggling with his shot. Oubre could see a short-term increase in his fantasy value until Porter starts to piece it together.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Washington Wizards center Ian Mahinmi (center) returned to the lineup for Friday's 116-112 loss against the Sacramento Kings. He finished with just four points, five rebounds, two steals and an assist across 19 minutes. Mahinmi could see a decent amount of playing time until Dwight Howard (back) is able to return. However, it's likely Markieff Morris sees more time in the middle, limiting Mahinmi's fantasy appeal to deeper formats. The Wizards continue their road trip Sunday against the Clippers.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Washington Wizards power forward Markieff Morris finished with 13 points, seven rebounds, two blocked shots and an assist in Friday's 116-112 loss against the Sacramento Kings across 37 minutes. He was a very effective 6-for-10 from the field, although he struggled at the free-throw line missing both of his attempts. He did get whistled for a technical foul late in the second quarter after a brief dust-up with Buddy Hield. After an ugly shooting night in the opener against the Miami Heat, he has shot 58.5 percent (24-for-41) over the past four contests, averaging 16.3 points and 6.8 rebounds over the impressive span. He is a solid No. 4 or 5 forward in most fantasy formats.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Los Angeles Clippers forward Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) missed Friday's game against the Houston Rockets due to a sore knee. His absence, and the struggles of Marcin Gortat, meant Montrezl Harrell was able to play as many minutes as he could handle and he excelled. For now, consider Mbah a Moute day to day. He can be helpful to fantasy owners in deeper leagues, but his propensity for injury makes him a very risky play.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: Houston Chronicle - Jonathan Feigen
10/27:Houston Rockets small forward Carmelo Anthony made his first start of the season in Friday's 133-113 loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. He stepped up his game with a season-high 24 points, hitting 8-for-18 from the field, including 6-for-10 from behind the 3-point line. He added two rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal while being whistled for five personal fouls over his 34 minutes. He is averaging 23.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots with 4.5 three-pointer per game over the past two, as he helps fill the void with injuries decimating the Rockets at the moment.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: Houston Chronicle - Jonathan Feigen
10/27:Los Angeles Clippers point guard Milos Teodosic posted eight points with seven rebounds and five assists over 17 minutes in Friday's 133-113 win against the Houston Rockets. He was an effective 3-for-4 from the field, including 2-for-3 from the perimeter, and he only turned it over twice with a solid plus-19 rating. Teodosic has been out of the rotation so far for head coach Doc Rivers, but he showed well in this one and might have bought himself some run in the short term. Keep an eye on him, as he can be helpful for fantasy owners looking for three-pointers.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Los Angeles Clippers center Marcin Gortat went scoreless across 16 minutes with six rebounds, an assist and three turnovers in Friday's 133-113 win against the Houston Rockets. Gortat was given the quick hook, as he didn't take very good care of the basketball. Montrezl Harrell and Mike Scott absorbed the available minutes in the frontcourt and excelled, particularly Harrell. The Polish Hammer hasn't hit double-digits in the point department all season, and is averaging just 3.6 points in his five games with the Clips. He has 6.4 rebounds per contests to at least give his fantasy owners something, but he certainly doesn't look comfortable in his new digs.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Los Angeles Clippers small forward Danilo Gallinari finished Friday's 133-113 win against the Houston Rockets with 16 points across 21 minutes. He was a very effective 4-for-5 from the field, including 1-for-2 from behind the three-point line, while going a perfect 7-for-7 from the free-throw line. He also chipped in with five rebounds, an assist and a blocked shots with just one turnover. Gallinari has posted at least 16 points and five rebounds in each of his five outings, and he has at least one triple in each contest, too. He remains a useful fantasy option since he logs plenty of minutes and takes good care of the basketball.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: ESPN
10/27:Houston Rockets center Nene Hilario (calf) will be sidelined at least two more weeks before he is re-evaluated. He still hasn't made his regular season debut, and apparently he suffered some sort of a setback in his recovery. With Nene on the shelf, the Rockets have had to soldier on without a true backup center behind Clint Capela, using P.J. Tucker in the middle more than they originally planned. When healthy, Nene can be helpful for fantasy owners, but when he does finally return the team is likely to treat him with kid gloves.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoballerSource: Houston Chronicle - Jonathan Feigen
