Michael Carter-Williams (knees) has been recalled from the G-League.

MCW scrimmaged with the Hornets' G-League team to test his knees, and while this is a step in the right direction, head coach Steve Clifford indicated it's unlikely Carter-Williams will be able to return during Charlotte's upcoming four-game road trip. MCW belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Derrick Rose (left knee) practiced on Thursday and coach Tom Thibodeau said "he's good."

This is great news for Rose given his lengthy history of knee injuries, and it sounds like he'll be ready to go Friday vs. the visiting Blazers. He's likely to come off the bench in the sixth-man role he began the season, with Jeff Teague, Robert Covington, Andrew Wiggins, Taj Gibson and KAT in the starting five.

John Collins (left ankle) will be ruled out for Thursday's game vs. Denver.

This isn't surprising since he was listed as 'doubtful' but even that tag is a step in the right direction. He's ramping up his activity in practice and maybe we'll see him in Indiana on Saturday or at home vs. the Clippers on Monday. It can't hurt to double-check that he's not on your waiver wire.

Marcus Morris (illness) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Raptors.

Morris was forced to the sidelines on Wednesday, which resulted in Semi Ojeleye earning 20 minutes off the bench. It'll be more of the same if he's out again tomorrow, but we'll have a better idea on his status following shootaround. Stay tuned.

Steve Kerr said that he'll be "very cautious" bringing Stephen Curry back from his groin injury.

Curry will miss all three games of the current road trip, and it sounds like he could be out beyond that. Kerr said that while Curry's MRI results were "encouraging," Curry is still experiencing symptoms from the groin strain, and the symptoms are the more important metric here. With Golden State being so loaded, they'll have the luxury of taking their time bringing Curry back, and Kerr said he'll want Curry to go through a lot of on-court work before he's cleared to play. Quinn Cook will be worth owning while Curry is out.

Gary Clark (hip) said he intends to play Thursday vs. the Warriors.

Clark is officially being listed as questionable, but he was confident that he'd be able to power through the hip issue when asked directly about his status for tonight's game. "Yup! [I'm playing]," said Clark, "I’ve played two months with a broken ankle. This is nothing." Clark has seen increased minutes with Carmelo Anthony off the floor, but he's still not really doing enough to warrant a roster spot in most settings.

Rajon Rondo is expected to miss the next 3-5 weeks of action with a fractured third metacarpal in his right hand.

Rondo will meet with a specialist on Thursday to determine whether or not he will require surgery, at which point, we'll have a better idea on his exact timetable. Lonzo Ball will be the primary beneficiary while Rondo recovers, and Lance Stephenson could see some increased responsibilities with the second unit. Rondo was just barely clinging to late-round value this season, so if you're in a standard 12-team league without an IR-spot, he's not really worth holding.

Damian Lillard (right knee) had 31 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds vs. the Lakers in L.A. on Wednesday, making 8-of-23 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs in 38 minutes.

Lillard said after Tuesday's practice, "I got up [Monday], I was a little bit nervous. I was really sore. I got a little workout in [Tuesday]. I felt pretty good moving around." He was listed as 'probable' all along and the knee clearly didn't limit him tonight, so this shouldn't be an ongoing concern. We'll let you know if there's any danger of him missing Friday's road game.

Jusuf Nurkic racked up 21 points, 14 rebounds (six offensive), four blocks and three steals in a losing effort on Wednesday.

He didn't stop there, making 7-of-13 shots and 7-of-8 free throws with just two turnovers in 35 minutes. Nurk has been a punt-FT% type center in years past but he's flipped the narrative this year with 79.5% shooting at the line, and he's up to 84.6% over his past five games. If you hear sirens in the distance, it's just another Nurk Alert.

LeBron James passed Wilt Chamberlain to become the No. 5 all-time NBA scorer on Wednesday, finishing with 44 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, five 3-pointers and three blocks.

It was all LeBron, all the time tonight as he made 13-of-19 field goals and 13-of-15 free throws, en route to the season-high in scoring. Up next on the all-time list are MJ, Kobe, The Mailman and Kareem. He's averaging a sustainable 35.0 minutes and his numbers are in line with recent seasons, which is all fantasy owners need for auto-pilot top-10 value. Oh, and LeBron has the Lakers winning again, too.

Rajon Rondo fractured his hand during Wednesday's game and will be out at least a couple weeks, according to coach Luke Walton.

Walton said the injury happened when Rondo hit the floor going for a steal, and it's a tough break for a Lakers team that's been cruising recently. Lonzo Ball's minutes should increase and Lance Stephenson could be asked to handle the ball more, too. There's not really enough upside here to hold him in most leagues while he recovers.
Nov 15 - 1:22 AM

Luka Doncic (sore left shoulder) scored 13 points (5-of-13 FG, 1-of-2 FT) with six rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday.

Doncic went for an X-ray after the game, but the results were negative and he just has a sore shoulder. He said that he thinks he's fine, so hopefully he won't miss any time. He was limited to just 25 minutes because of the score as the Mavs were dominating. Check back for updates on the star rookie.
