C.J. Wilcox underwent a successful arthroscopy on his right knee on Monday and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

Very little fantasy impact here, as Wilcox is on a two-way deal and was going to spend the majority of the season in the G-League even if fully healthy.

Hamidou Diallo has been diagnosed with a left ankle sprain and he'll undergo further testing on Thursday.

Diallo exited the arena on crutches with a walking boot on his left foot, but he was "in pretty great spirits" after initial tests suggested he avoided a major injury. We'll know more soon. If he is forced to miss significant time, the Thunder will rely on Alex Abrines (illness), Terrance Ferguson (ankle) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to pick up the slack.

Russell Westbrook notched his first triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, adding two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

OKC came away victorious vs. the Warriors, and Westbrook did well to trust his teammates and not force the issue offensively on a night when he wasn't hitting shots (5-of-15 FGs, 0-of-2 FTs). Next up is a back-to-back set this weekend -- Kemba Walker and the Hornets visit on Friday, followed by the Nuggets on Saturday. There's been no suggestion of limitations for Westbrook in back-to-back situations, despite his recent ankle injury, so keep him locked into active lineups.
Nov 22 - 1:23 AM

Dennis Schroder lit up for a season-high 32 points vs. the Warriors on Wednesday, making 12-of-19 shots with five 3-pointers in 28 bench minutes.

Schroder was fantastic on a night when Russell Westbrook struggled offensively (11 points on 5-of-15 FGs). He added four rebounds, four assists and one steal, and the efficiency was a welcome sight considering he came in shooting 39.9% from the field (lowest since his rookie season). As long as coach Billy Donovan is willing to play him alongside Westbrook, the sheer volume of Schroder's scoring, boards, assists and steals should outweigh his inefficiency.

Jerami Grant (right ankle) started Wednesday's game and had 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting, 11 rebounds, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and one assist in 34 minutes.

Grant was a game-time decision but he helped OKC move above .500 on the road with tonight's 123-95 win at Oracle Arena. His primary value for fantasy is defensive stats with 1.1 blocks and 0.8 steals per game, in addition to 1.0 threes. He's not a great all-around fantasy player and won't help most points-league owners, but has low-end appeal in deeper roto leagues.
Nov 22 - 1:18 AM

Marc Gasol scored 20 points (6-of-13 FGs, 8-of-8 FTs) with 10 rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 35 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

Gasol is averaging 22.2 points, 11.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 1.6 blocks, and 2.4 triples on 51% shooting during the Grizzlies' five-game winning streak. He's posting monstrous value right now and should continue to do so as long as he's healthy.
Nov 22 - 12:58 AM

Mike Conley scored 30 points (11-of-23 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs) with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block, and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies are currently in first place in the Western Conference and Conley is a big reason why. He's averaging 24.2 points and 6.8 assists with 3.0 triples over his last five games. As long as he's healthy and the Grizzlies are winning, Conley is a rock-solid fantasy option.
Nov 22 - 12:51 AM

DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points (10-of-20 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, and five turnovers in 37 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

DeRozan snapped a streak of seven consecutive poor shooting games by shooting over 50% in this one. He hasn't attempted a 3-pointer in his last three games and hasn't made one in his last seven games. Still, he's managed to put together a nice season thus far and he's averaging 24.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 5.6 assists over his last five outings.
Nov 22 - 12:29 AM

Donovan Mitchell scored 35 points during a 119-110 loss to the Kings on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, three assists, one block, one turnover and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He made 13-of-23 from the field and he was not bashful as per usual. Last week, Mitchell was discouraged by his 35-shot, no-dime game in Philly on Nov. 16, and he also put up a dud on Monday with a season-low seven points. Most of Mitchell's counting stats are up, but his TS% is down to 51.9 this year from 54.1 as a rookie. That's uncharacteristic for a guard, so maybe it'll start to click for last year's runner up for Rookie of the Year.
Nov 22 - 12:24 AM

Rudy Gay scored a season-high 21 points (7-of-10 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs) with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block, and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

After resting against the Suns a week ago, Gay is averaging 19.0 points and 6.3 rebounds over his last four games. He committed a terrible foul towards the end of the game, which led to the Spurs eventually losing the game. Outside of that, he's played very well of late and should be owned in most leagues.
Nov 22 - 12:18 AM

Zach LaVine scored 29 points with one rebound, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday during a 124-116 win.

The Suns basically gave LaVine a layup line to put up a big game in his return from a one-game absence, and LaVine's growth around the basket is a big reason why he's having such a strong offensive season. He's failed to hit 20 points in just two games this season with LaVine playing through a cold for one of those games. We're almost a quarter through the season and LaVine's 25 points per game still look totally legit.
Nov 22 - 12:03 AM

Andre Drummond scored 20 points (8-of-12 FGs, 3-of-9 FTs) with 11 rebounds, one assist, one block, and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Drummond was in foul trouble, which limited him to only 28 minutes in this one. He tied his worst free throw shooting night of the season, going 3-of-9 from the stripe, but the good news is that he's much closer to his FT% from last season than previous seasons. After posting his seventh straight double-double, he's now averaging 20.0 points and 14.4 rebounds over his last five games.
