Seth Curry (right knee sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets.

Curry has spent the past two games on the sidelines, and his minutes have been divvied up between Devin Harris and Jonathan Gibson, with Deron Williams logging around 30 minutes as a starter. It'll be more of the same if he can't give it a go Monday night.

Dirk Nowtizki (Achilles) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Hornets.

It'll be Dirk's fifth straight game on the sidelines, and the only recent update we've had on Nowitzki from Rick Carlisle is that he'll be out "a while." For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Dorian Finney-Smith will continue to start in his absence, with Harrison Barnes acting as the No. 1 option on offense.

K.J. McDaniels (travel issues) was unable to attend Sunday's practice.

"As long as they communicate, some things you can't control," said head coach Mike D'Antoni of McDaniels' excused absence. He's not typically a fantasy option, but if Trevor Ariza (back) is forced to the sidelines on Monday's night, McDaniels could pop up on the deep league radar.
Dec 4 - 3:02 PM

Larry Nance (right knee contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Jazz.

Nance missed Saturday's showdown in Memphis, which resulted in Julius Randle, Luol Deng and Brandon Ingram logging heavy minutes, and it'll be more of the same if Nance can't give it a go Monday night.

Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) has been ruled out for Monday’s game against the Jazz.

With Calderon, Nick Young (Achilles), D’Angelo Russell (knee) all set to spend Monday night on the sidelines, the Lakers could go with a starting backcourt of Jordan Clarkson and Marcelo Huertas, with Clarkson being the preferable fantasy target. Lou Williams, who is coming off a 40-point game, will also see some increased opportunity on Monday night, as would Brandon Ingram.

The Rockets have recalled Kyle Wiltjer from his D-League stint.

He's played a total of 10 minutes this season.
Dec 4 - 2:20 PM

Mike D'Antoni said that Trevor Ariza (back) was feeling better, and the Rockets are listing him as day-to-day.

Ariza exited Friday's game during the closing minutes with back spasms and did not return, but Houston was up by 20 when Ariza tapped out. He did sit out Sunday's practice, and while he did say he was feeling better, he acknowledged that he might not play Monday vs. Boston. If he’s out, Corey Brewer and K.J. McDaniels would see a boost in value.
Dec 4 - 2:17 PM

John Wall (rest) sat out of practice on Sunday.

He is a little "banged up" with a thigh contusion, but the Wizards are just managing his reps in practice to keep him fresh for the games. He also missed a practice on Thursday and ended up scoring 17 points with 15 dimes against the Spurs on Friday. He's fine.
Dec 4 - 1:58 PM

Ian Mahinmi (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

This will be his fourth game in a row on the shelf. This is not the same knee that he had offseason surgery on, but the Wizards are going to play it safe with their $64 million backup center. He was able to practice Sunday, so he's considered day-to-day.
Dec 4 - 1:37 PM

George Hill (left big toe) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

This will be his third game in a row on the shelf, but the Jazz are hoping he will be able to return either Tuesday against the Suns or Thursday against the Warriors. Dante Exum will likely continue to start, but he's been outplayed by Shelvin Mack lately and has played less minutes than Mack in two straight games.
Dec 4 - 1:01 PM

Mike Dunleavy (concussion) returned to practice on Sunday.

This means that he will likely be good to go for Monday's game vs. the Raptors. He's only averaging 15.6 minutes per game, so he's not a fantasy option.
Dec 4 - 12:53 PM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson gushed about the recent play of Sean Kilpatrick.

"Sean has a chip, there’s no doubt about it," Atkinson said. "I think there’s an angry chip and a healthy chip, and his is healthy. It’s in a good spirit." The SG is averaging 22.0 points over his last six games with 3.7 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.1 treys, and he's also played 27 or more minutes in each of those games. His value will take a hit when Jeremy Lin (hamstring) eventually returns, but he belongs in all standard-league lineups right now.

Reggie Bullock had successful surgery on his left knee.

He was originally expected to miss 2-4 months, but now his timetable is 4-6 weeks. Regardless, Bullock shouldn't be on fantasy rosters until further notice.
Dec 4 - 10:56 AM

Reggie Jackson (knee, thumb) will play on Sunday vs. the Magic.

He was listed as out on the pre-game notes, but the decision on his status was always up to Jackson. Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Jackson will play 4-5 minutes per quarter, so he's looking at roughly 18-20 minutes of action if this holds up. The Pistons are going to ease him back into action, so DFS owners can't trust him right away. If you own Ish Smith, it makes sense to wait and see what happens over the next week before moving on.
Dec 4 - 10:49 AM

The Knicks have recalled Maurice Ndour from the D-League.

He's usually not in the rotation when the Knicks are healthy and can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.
Dec 4 - 10:47 AM
