Jonas Jerebko will start for Draymond Green (suspension) on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

Green is only suspended for one game, so Jerebko is just a desperation stream on a 3-game night.

J.R. Smith (illness) scored 13 points with five assists, three rebounds, one steal, one block and three triples vs. the Hornets on Tuesday.

He has really elevated his game since requesting a trade out of Cleveland. Maybe they will grant his wish and use the next several weeks to showcase him for a trade, but you should have a better option on your waiver wire with Cleveland only playing one more time this week.
Nov 13 - 9:56 PM

Jordan Clarkson led the Cavaliers to their second win of the campaign with a season-high 24 points vs. the Hornets on Tuesday.

He only had seven garbage-time points, so this wasn't all about the blowout. Clarkson hit 9-of-15 shots with five rebounds, two assists, one block and a triple in 28 minutes. He's quietly having a good season and has benefitted from Cleveland's tank, as he's flirting with top-100 value in standard leagues for his contributions in points (15.8), assists (1.8) and triples (1.3) on 47.5% shooting.

Collin Sexton hit 7-of-18 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal in 33 minutes in Tuesday's 113-89 win over the Hornets.

He easily outplayed Kemba Walker, who hit 2-of-16 shots, and is rolling right now with George Hill (shoulder) out of the picture. The 18 shots were a career high, Sexton has scored between 15-20 points and has played between 33-42 minutes in each of his last three games, and has hit a 3-pointer in four straight games. It only took Hill's shoulder injury to kick start his season, but it's still possible that Hill's return to action could kill it, just as quickly. But with the Cavs only having two at this point, and Sexton figuring out how to play in the NBA, there's a pretty good chance Hill may not have a starting job when he comes back. Sexton's a very hot pickup if you need a guard in your fantasy league right now.
Nov 13 - 9:43 PM

Malik Monk couldn't break out of his shooting slump on Tuesday vs. Cleveland, scoring six points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 23 minutes.

He missed all eight of his 3-point attempts and hasn't been able to buy a basket for over a week -- he's a combined 7-of-37 from the field over his last three games. Jeremy Lamb has simply been the better player and fantasy asset and is cruising with top-75 value, while Monk should be benched in deeper leagues until he heats back up.
Nov 13 - 9:37 PM

Larry Nance started again and played 35 minutes on Tuesday, hitting 3-of-6 shots for seven points, 12 rebounds, a steal and a block in a 113-89 win over the Hornets.

Nance hasn't scored more than seven points in any of his last three games, but the minutes are on the rise and the 35 he played tonight are a season high. He's also hit double-digit rebounds in his last two games, blocked a shot in three straight games (with four of them on Saturday), and finally looks like he's ready to start producing consistently for the Cavs. Scoring is an issue right now, but we expect it to come around as long as his starting role and minutes stick going forward.
Nov 13 - 9:35 PM

Jeremy Lamb scored a season-high 22 points vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday, hitting 8-of-16 shots and 5-of-5 free throws.

He was the lone bright spot for Charlotte as his team was blown out in Cleveland. Lamb added six rebounds, two assists, three steals, one triple and three turnovers and has been hot in November, shooting 50% from the field. Despite playing just 25 minutes per game, Lamb still has top-75 value in 9-category leagues for his efficient scoring and low turnovers (0.9).
Nov 13 - 9:31 PM

Kemba Walker scored a season-low seven points in Tuesday's 113-89 loss to the Cavaliers.

Yes, you read that right. Kemba has been on a tear this season with 27.9 points per game prior to Tuesday, but hit just 2-of-16 shots and 2-of-5 free throws with six assists, four rebounds, two steals, one block, one triple and one turnover in 36 minutes against the NBA's worst rated defense. To make matters worse, fantasy owners who started him in weekly leagues will only be able to deploy him one more time with Charlotte off until Saturday's game vs. Philly. Maybe his back issue from last week limited him, but this was likely just a rare off night for the All-Star.
Nov 13 - 9:22 PM

Miles Bridges was held to five points, two rebounds and a triple in 16 minutes vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right ankle) sat this one out and could miss more time considering he's in a walking boot. Coach James Borrego talked about giving Bridges more run in MKG's place over the weekend, but obviously that didn't happen with the rookie playing fewer than 20 minutes for the first time since Nov. 3. He's just a stash in deeper leagues until his minutes and production are stable.
Nov 13 - 9:15 PM

P.J. Tucker (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

He hasn't played fewer than 33 minutes in a single game this season, so we doubt a minor illness changes that tonight.
Nov 13 - 8:43 PM

Clint Capela (knee) and P.J. Tucker (illness) are starting vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

He picked up a minor knock on Sunday, but Capela wasn't even listed on the last two injury reports which is great news for his status going forward.

Rudy Gay (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Suns.

Gay just got back from the heel issue, so the Spurs will play it safe with him on the first night of a back-to-back set. He'll be back out there for Thursday's game against the Clippers, but with him out tomorrow, there will be more minutes available for guys like Davis Bertans and Dante Cunningham.
Nov 13 - 7:09 PM

The Spurs placed Derrick White on the injury report by accident.

They listed him as out with a knee injury, but that injury designation was meant for Lonnie Walker. White will be ready to roll against the Suns.
Nov 13 - 7:07 PM

Draymond Green has been suspended without pay for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

Green brought up Kevin Durant's free agency decisions during Monday's heated exchange following an overtime loss to the Clippers, in addition to hurling some insults his way, and that crossed a line that will incur a team-enforced suspension. Word is that this could be Durant's final year with the Warriors, and that obviously hasn't sat well with Green. That said, in a few wins from now, this will likely be a non-story.
Nov 13 - 6:23 PM

Jevon Carter has been assigned to the Grizzlies' G-League affiliate.

He's a non-factor in the rotation, so he'll head down to the G-League for some much-needed experience. Leave him on the wire.
