NBA Player News
|12/11/2013||John Henson, F-C||Henson had a season-high 25 points, 14 rebound and six blocks in Tuesday's 78-74 win at Chicago.
Analysis: Henson has been outstanding over the last three games, posting 20.7 points and 12.7 boards. He should continue to put him big numbers going forward.
|12/11/2013||Carlos Boozer, F-C||Boozer had 21 points and 12 rebounds in Tuesday's 78-74 loss to Milwaukee.
Analysis: While Boozer has three 20-point efforts over the last seven games, he's scored a combined 35 in the other four. He remains a good - but hardly great - fantasy option.
|12/11/2013||Goran Dragic, G||Dragic scored a season high-tying 31 points in Tuesday's 114-108 win at the Lakers.
Analysis: Dragic is averaging 18.4 points, just behind Eric Bledsoe's team-leading mark of 18.6.
|12/11/2013||Brandon Jennings, PG||Jennings had 20 points and seven assists but also committed six turnovers for the third time in four games in Tuesday's loss to Minnesota.
Analysis: Jennings' 8.0 assist-per-game average is the highest of his career, but so is his average of 3.7 turnovers.
|12/11/2013||Marcus Morris, PF||Morris had 22 points - two shy of his career high - in Tuesday's 114-108 road win over the Lakers.
Analysis: While Morris has shown flashes of brilliance, he is averaging just 11.0 points on the season. His fantasy value will remain limited until he becomes more consistent.
|12/11/2013||Kobe Bryant, SG||Bryant finished with 20 points in Tuesday's 114-108 loss to Phoenix.
Analysis: After a disappointing debut, Bryant shot 6 of 11 against the Suns and went 7 of 8 from the foul line. He figures to get stronger as the season progresses.
|12/11/2013||Kevin Love, F-C||Love had 26 points and 16 rebounds for his 19th double-double of the season in Tuesday's win over Detroit after missing the club's previous game to mourn the death of his grandmother.
Analysis: Incredibly, Love has logged a double-double in all but one of his 20 games thus far. He's leading the league with 13.8 rebounds per game.
|12/11/2013||Ricky Rubio, PG||Rubio bounced back from a rough performance to score 15 points with nine assists in Tuesday's win over Detroit.
Analysis: Rubio also didn't commit a turnover after committing six and going 0 for 4 from the field in Saturday's loss to Miami.
|12/11/2013||Jeff Green, G-F||Green had 19 points in Boston's loss to Brooklyn on Tuesday.
Analysis: Green was a perfect 4 for 4 from beyond the arc and is 13 of 24 from long distance over his last six games. His 41.5 3-point percentage this season is the best of his career.
|12/11/2013||Avery Bradley, G||Bradley was 8 of 16 to score 22 points - his most in 12 games - in Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn.
Analysis: Bradley has shown the ability to score in bunches at times, but his inconsistency limits him in terms of fantasy reliability.
|12/11/2013||Deron Williams, PG||Williams scored a season-high 25 points as he played for the first time in nearly three weeks in Tuesday's victory over Boston.
Analysis: Williams was clearly a difference maker for the Nets, who shot a season-high 55.7 percent from the field with their point guard back in the lineup. He was 10 of 16 from the field and also had seven assists.
|12/11/2013||Brook Lopez, C||Lopez scored 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's win over Boston.
Analysis: Lopez continues to play at an All-Star level, particularly over his last three games as he's averaging 26.7 points on 68.2 percent shooting.
|12/11/2013||Paul Millsap, PF||Millsap had 23 points and 12 rebounds in Tuesday's loss to Oklahoma City for his eight double-double of the season and fourth in five games.
Analysis: Millsap was 5 of 18 from the field but made good use of the free-throw line Tuesday, knocking down 11 of 12 attempts from the charity stripe.
|12/11/2013||Kevin Durant, F||Durant had 30 points and 10 rebounds in Tuesday's win over Atlanta for his 10th double-double of the season and sixth in the last eight games.
Analysis: Durant has been a monster on the glass lately, averaging 10.3 rebounds over his last eight contests. His 8.4 average this season is also a career-high mark.
|12/11/2013||Serge Ibaka, F-C||Ibaka had 19 points and 10 rebounds in Tuesday's win over Atlanta, recording his 10th double-double this season.
Analysis: Ibaka is 13 for 22 from the field over his last two games after shooting just 42.9 percent in his previous four.
|12/11/2013||Russell Westbrook, PG||Westbrook had 14 points and 11 assists for his second-consecutive double-double in Tuesday's win over Atlanta, but he was just 6 of 21 from the field.
Analysis: As we've seen in the past, Westbrook is often good news-bad news type player, particularly in terms of fantasy value. Double-digit assists are nice but owners are surely going to cringe at the 28.6 field-goal percentage from Tuesday. Westbrook has shot 36.8 percent or worse in seven of his 17 contests this season.
|12/10/2013||Michael Beasley, F||Beasley will miss another game because of a left hamstring injury. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said Beasley was "getting close" but would not play Tuesday against Indiana.
Analysis: The forward is considered day to day.
|12/10/2013||Rodney Stuckey, G||Stuckey is currently out because of an injured left knee.
Analysis: The Detroit Pistons guard's timetable for returning is unclear.
|12/10/2013||Tyler Hansbrough, F-C||Hansbrough is dealing with a sprained shoulder.
Analysis: Hansbrough should be back sooner than later. Fantasy owners need to keep a close eye on his status.
|12/10/2013||Kenyon Martin, F-C||Martin is dealing with a sore left ankle.
Analysis: Martin doesn't have much fantasy value right now. He's averaging 3.6 points and 4.0 rebounds.
