Insight: Gay has been playing through the problem and is posted solid numbers this season - 21.1 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 3.8 apg, 1.1 spg. As long as he doesn't have a setback, he's good to go.

Shabazz Napier, GHot11/25/2014 12:19:00 PM
Description: Heat rookie Shabazz Napier has scored double-digit points in five consecutive games.
Insight: It's not a coincidence that Dwyane Wade has not been playing in any of them. With Wade expected to miss Tuesday as well, Naier is a viable fantasy option.

Description: Heat guard Norris Cole (finger) made it through the tuesday morning shootaround and should be ready to return tonight.
Insight: Dwyane Wade is expected to be sidelined, so Norris could see plenty of playing time and shots if he can go.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade will miss his seventh straight game on Tuesday.

Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is out for Tuesday's game against Golden State due to a sprained right ankle.

Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes is questionable for Wednesday's game against Detroit due to a strained left calf.

Donatas Motiejunas, F, HOUHot11/25/2014 11:54:00 AM
Description: Rockets PF/C Donatas Motiejunas could be a viable fantasy option if Dwight Howard continues to be sidelined by his knee injury.

Dwight Howard, C, HOU11/25/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) did not play Monday against the Knicks and may miss three or more games, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen.
Insight: There was hope he would be able to play Monday, but he apparently did not feel right during shootaround. Tarik Black will get the start, but has little fantasy value. power forward/center Donatas Motiejunas would be a better option

Description: Rockets starting point guard Patrick Beverley will not play for a while due to an injured left hamstring.
Insight: Beverley missed four games the last time he suffered a hamstring injury and coach Kevin McHale thinks this time might be longer, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen. Isaiah Canaan and Jason Terry will get all the minutes with Canaan likely the starter.
David Lee, PF, GSW11/25/2014 11:45:00 AM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee is hoping to return Dec 2 from his hamstring injury.
Insight: Lee will not be pushed so that date might actually be early. Draymond Green (12.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 3.3 apg) will continue to get most of the minutes until then.
Andrew Bogut, C, GSW11/25/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut is questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami while dealing with a bruised orbital bone.
Insight: Bogut made it through the morning shootaround, so is more likely closer to probable than questionable. He's averaging 8.0 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.8 bpg).
Leandro Barbosa, G, GSW11/25/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Leandro Barbosa is questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami with a sprianed right knee.

D.J. Augustin, G, DET11/25/2014 11:38:00 AM
Description: Pistons backup point guard D.J. Augustin could get the start Tuesday with Brandon Jennings dealing with a hyperextended left thumb.
Insight: August has average 13.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 6.2 apg during his career as a starter and could be a nice play if Jennings is sidelined.

Description: Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings is questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee due to a hyperextended left thumb.

Description: Denver center JaVale McGee is questionable for Tuesday's game against Chicago due to a strained left leg.

Kirk Hinrich, G, CHI11/25/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich missed Monday's game and is questionable for Tuesday's game against Denver.

Taj Gibson, PF, CHI11/25/2014 11:26:00 AM
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle on Friday for a third time since last spring and will miss a second consecutive game Tuesday.
Insight: Gibson hopes to return in time for Friday's game, but there are no guarantees. He's averaging 12.4 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.7 apg primarily off the bench, but when he starts he's been better (15.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 2.2 apg).
Gary Neal, G, CHA11/25/2014 11:23:00 AM
Description: Hornets guard Gary Neal injured his left shoulder Monday night and is questionable for Wednesday versus Portland.
Insight: This comes at a bad time as he'd been getting 30 minutes a night due to the injuries to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and P.J. Hairston. Neal has played solidly off the bench, scoring 12.3 ppg with 2.8 rpg and 1.5 apg.
Alec Burks, G, UTACold11/25/2014 11:13:00 AM
Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks, who had hauled in 24 rebounds over two games last week, has reverted to his old habits.

Description: Jazz point guard Trey Burke had another solid game Monday night against Chicago, posting 18 points, three rebounds and 10 assists.
Insight: Burke was 8-of-14 from the field which is a big improvement over his season-long 36.4 percent shooting and it was his second game with double-digit assists.
Derrick Favors, F/C, UTA11/25/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Jazz power forward Derrick Favors shot 10-of-17 from the floor for 21 points to go along with 15 rebounds.
Insight: Favors scoring has been a bit inconsistent, but he's always going to get fantasy owners solid rebound totals.
Jimmy Butler, G/F, CHI11/25/2014 11:03:00 AM
Description: Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler scored a team-high 25 points against the Jazz Monday night.
Insight: This is great news for Butler owners as he did it despite the return of veterans Pau Gasol and Derrick Rose. We like where his game is headed and fantasy owners should keep starting him.
Derrick Rose, G, CHI11/25/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Bulls guard Derrick Rose (hamstring) started Monday against Utah.
Insight: As Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau pointed out, Rose "didn't look comfortable out there" while scoring 18 points with three rebounds, five assists and four turnovers.
Pau Gasol, PF/C, CHI11/25/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Bulls center Pau Gasol (calf) started Monday versus Utah and came up big, scoring 23 points with nine boards, four assists, three steals and a couple of blocks.
Insight: Gasol's numbers are up from last season (19.0 ppg, 10.5 rpg, 2.1 apg, 2.5 bpg), he just needs to stay healthy. Owners need to make sure he is in all lineups.
Dirk Nowitzki, F, DAL11/24/2014 11:00:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki had a double-double during Monday's los to the Pacers.

Insight: He was 10-of-13 from the field and 6-of-9 from the line for 29 points. Sloan also had five assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, one steal, and one turnover. He will not score this much on a nightly basis, but will have a chance to contribute all season.
James Harden, G, HOU11/24/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Rockets shooting guard James Harden had another big game during Monday's win over the Knicks.
Insight: He was 11-of-22 from the field, 7-of-7 from the line, and 7-of-12 from beyond the arc for 36 points. Harden also chipped in six assists, six rebounds, three steals, one block, and five turnovers. While the turnovers are a bit much, these type of numbers will make owners deal with that.
Carmelo Anthony, F, NYK11/24/2014 10:22:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony left Monday's game with back spasms.
Insight: He was unable to return, and finished the night with 14 points and seven rebounds, in only 18 minutes of action.

Description: Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe had a ice game during Monday's loss to Toronto.
Insight: He had 25 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three 3-pointers, two steals, two blocks, and three turnovers. Bledsoe will continue to be a solid option.

Description: Hornets center Al Jefferson scored a team-high 16 points in Monday's loss to the Clippers.
Insight: Jefferson also had nine rebounds, two assists, and one block. Not a bad night, but owners should expect more.

Description: Clippers guard Chris Paul recorded an impressive double-double on Monday night.
Insight: He had 22 points and 15 assists, along with five rebounds two 3-pointers, one block, and one turnover. Paul continues to be one of the best point guards in the NBA.

Insight: He was 10-of-24 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Carter-Williams also chipped in seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two turnovers. He needs to contribute more in the assist column, but it was a solid night, nevertheless.

Insight: He was 13-of-20 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line for 33 points. Aldridge also had 11 rebounds, three assists, and one turnover. Owners need to enjoy the ride.

Derrick Rose, G, CHI11/24/2014 8:36:00 PM

Description: Timberwolves shooting guard Kevin Martin will have wrist surgery, causing him to miss the next six weeks.
Insight: Corey Brewer will continue to start, with Andrew Wiggins and Chase Budinger seeing a bump in value.
Eric Gordon, G, NOP11/24/2014 4:47:00 PM
Description: Pelicans guard Eric Gordon is out indefinitely with a torn labrum.
Insight: This is a big blow to the Pelicans and to fantasy owners. Austin Rivers will likely take over the starting shooting guard spot, but we do not recommend picking him up, until we see some production.
Dwight Howard, C, HOU11/24/2014 4:44:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) will not play Monday against the Knicks.
Insight: There was hope he would be able to play, but he apparently did not feel right during shootaround. There is still no timetable for Howard's return, but we would expect Houston to play it extremely safe with their big-man.
Xavier Henry, G/F, LAL11/24/2014 4:23:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles G/F Xavier Henry (right knee surgery/strained back) is now getting an MRI on his Achilles

Carlos Boozer, F, LAL11/24/2014 4:20:00 PM
Description: Lakers forward Carlos Boozer missed Monday's practice and should be considered questionable for Wednesday versus Memphis.
Insight: He's dealing with a shoulder issue. Boozer also missed Saturday's game. He's averaging 13.3 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 1.7 apg. Ed Davis and Robert Sacre would gain playing time in his absence.
Russell Westbrook, G, OKC11/24/2014 2:46:00 PM
Description: Thunder guard Russell Westbrook (hand) could return as soon as Friday, according to Thunder beat writer for The Oklahoman Anthony Slater.
Insight: Westbrook went through some practice with contact. He isn't supposed to be back for a couple of weeks, but is apparently ahead of schedule. His return would take a huge bite out of reggie Jackson's current value.
Patrick Beverley, G, HOU11/24/2014 2:36:00 PM
Description: Rockets starting point guard Patrick Beverley will not play Monday due to an injured left hamstring.
Insight: Isaiah Canaan and Jason Terry will get all the minutes with Canaan likely the starter. Canaan has started six times this season and averaged 11.5 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 2.3 apg in that role.
Austin Rivers, SG, NOP11/24/2014 2:35:00 PM
Description: Pelicans guard Austin Rivers should take over the starting shooting guard role with Eric Gordon sidelined indefinitely.
Insight: Rivers saw most of Gordon's maniutes after he was hurt Saturday and scored eight points with three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 33 minutes.
Raymond Felton, G, DAL11/24/2014 2:32:00 PM
Description: Mavericks backup point guard Raymond Felton has served his time and healed from his ankle injury and is probable for Monday's game against Indiana.
Insight: Felton lost the starting job to Jameer Nelson and Devin Harris has played well too, so we aren't sure Felton plays enough to be fantasy worthy.
Ian Mahinmi, C, IND11/24/2014 2:31:00 PM
Description: Indiana backup center Ian Mahinmi will get a start with Roy Hibbert's ankle injury already knocking him out of Monday's game.
Insight: Mahinmi did post a solid 12 points and 10 rebound on Saturday, but you can't depend on his scoring ability.
Roy Hibbert, C, IND11/24/2014 2:27:00 PM
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against Dallas.
Insight: Ian Mahinmi will fill in during Hibbert's absence, but all you can normally expect to get from him is rebounds. he did score 12 in Saturday's game after Hibbert left, so he could be worthy watching.
Rodney Stuckey, G, IND11/24/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey has been upgraded to probable for Monday after getting through the shootaround.
Insight: Stuckey is dealing with a left-wrist problem. Given all the injuries to the Pacers, if he could stay healthy he could produce fantasy-worthy numbers.
Thaddeus Young, F, MIN11/24/2014 2:21:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young practiced Monday and is on pace to return for Wednesday's game
Insight: Young missed time due to the passing of his mother. He's seeing almost 32 mpg and averaging 14.3 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.6 apg, 1.6 spg. That's not quite as good as last season, but its a new team and it takes time to adapt.
Nene , PF/C, WAS11/24/2014 2:18:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene, who left Saturday's game due to plantar fasciitis, wasn't able to practice Monday morning.
Insight: This is not a good sign, as Nene is always a threat for a stint in street clothes. DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden would fill in accordingly.
Trey Burke, G, UTA11/23/2014 11:24:00 AM
Description: Jazz point guard Trey Burke had a solid game versus New Orleans.
Insight: Burke was 8-of-12 from the field, 2-of-3 from the line, and 2-of-5 from beyond the arc for 20 points. He also had four assists, one block,and four turnovers. Owners need his assist-to-turnover ratio to improve.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTA11/23/2014 11:22:00 AM
