Wed Dec 822:22Joel Embiid Scores Game-High 32 Points In WinJoel EmbiidC76ersFree Agent
Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid scored a game-high 32 points during a 110-106 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday. The 27-year-old went 8-for-17 from the field, including 1-for-2 behind the arc, and 15-for-19 from the line. The Kansas product also poured in eight rebounds, four assists, and a steal across 33 minutes. The Cameroon native has averaged over 34 points, 11 boards, and five assists over the past three games, and has been rounding into form following a slow start to the season. Once the positive regression hits for the percentages, Embiid will be back to performing like the first-round caliber player he is.
Wed Dec 822:21Miles Bridges Posts An Efficient 20 Points In Loss On WednesdayMiles BridgesPFHornetsFree Agent
Charlotte Hornets power forward Miles Bridges scored 20 points on 61.5% shooting from the field during a 110-106 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. The Kentucky product added five rebounds and five assists while going 3-for-3 from the line and 1-for-2 behind the arc across 43 minutes. Bridges has been terrific to start the season, averaging 20.2 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.1 stocks, and 2.2 triples per game while shooting 46.3% from the field and 76.9% from the line. Bridges ascension into the perfect running mate for point guard LaMelo Ball has been a dream come true for the Hornets and fantasy managers.
Wed Dec 822:19Gordon Hayward Scores Season-High 31 Points In LossGordon HaywardSFHornetsFree Agent
Charlotte Hornets small forward Gordon Hayward poured in a season-high 31 points during a 110-106 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. The Butler product shot 10-for-18 from the field, including 2-for-5 behind the arc, and 9-for-10 from the line. The 31-year-old also posted five boards, seven assists, a block, and a steal across 41 minutes. Hayward has assumed playmaking and alpha responsibilities with guards LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier in the league's health and safety protocols, boosting his value over the past week. On the season, Hayward is averaging over 17.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.7 triples per game on 44.6% shooting from the field. His value will take a small dip when the pair returns but should enjoy an uptick in usage in the meantime.
Wed Dec 822:18Jarrett Allen Posts Double-Double In Win On WednesdayJarrett AllenCCavaliersFree Agent
Cleveland Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen secured his 15th double-double of the season with a 13-point and 12-rebound performance during a 115-92 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. The 23-year-old went 5-for-9 from the field, including 0-for-1 behind the arc, and 3-for-4 from the line. The Texas product also chipped in with four assists, a block, and a steal across 32 minutes. The fit between rookie big man Evan Mobley and Allen has been a boon for fantasy managers, as both players have been terrific to start the young season. Allen is in the midst of his best season as a pro, averaging a career-best 17.3 points, 11.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 2.2 stocks while shooting 71.0% from the field.
Wed Dec 822:17Nikola Vucevic Posts Inefficient Double-Double On WednesdayNikola VucevicCBullsFree Agent
Chicago Bulls center Nikola Vucevic posted 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds while shooting 34.8% from the field during a 115-92 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. The 31-year-old also went 1-for-7 from behind the arc and 1-for-2 from the line. The USC product collected two blocks across 31 minutes Vuc has had a rough start to the season, averaging 15.2 points per game while shooting below 42% from the field, including below 36.1 from behind the arc, and an uncharacteristically poor 63.3% from the line. With guard Zach LaVine and forward DeMar DeRozan running the show in the Windy City, the big man's stats were sure to take a hit. Vucevic's season hasn't been a complete dud, pitching in with 10.6 boards, 2.0 stocks, and 1.7 triples per game. The Montenegrin big man should start to see some positive regression at the percentages with quality looks, making him an intriguing buy-low option.
Wed Dec 822:15Evan Mobley Swats Five Shots In Win On WednesdayEvan MobleyPFCavaliersFree Agent
Cleveland Cavaliers power forward/center Evan Mobley swatted a career-high five shots during a 115-92 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. The 20-year-old also collected nine rebounds, an assist, and two steals across 32 minutes. The USC product went 8-for-11 from the field, scoring 16 points. Mobley has had a stellar start to his rookie season, averaging over 14.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game on 46.5% shooting from the field and 78.5% from the line. Mobley is a star in the making and his value in dynasty leagues is sky-high.
Wed Dec 819:12Kevin Durant To Rest On WednesdayKevin DurantPFNetsFree Agent
Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant (rest) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Houston Rockets. It's the second night of a back-to-back set, so it's not shocking to see Durant sitting out. LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) will join Durant on the sideline for this game. Paul Millsap and Bruce Brown could have some streaming appeal and low cost DFS value for Wednesday's slate. James Harden will do the heavy lifting on offense and be a popular option for DFS contests without Durant on the court.

Wed Dec 819:08Jaylen Brown Not Available Against ClippersJaylen BrownSFCelticsFree Agent
Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. This marks four games in a row that Brown has missed due to a right hamstring issue. Jayson Tatum will continue doing the heavy lifting on offense and be a popular DFS option while Brown is out. Also, Dennis Schroder and Marcus Smart should be more involved as well. Both are solid low cost options for Wednesday's slate.

Wed Dec 819:04Paul George Could Miss Wednesday's ContestPaul GeorgeSFClippersFree Agent
Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George (elbow) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Boston Celtics. The All-Star forward is a late addition to the injury report. It's the same elbow that George had issues with years ago, but fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned. The Clippers might have George sit as a precaution, but it shouldn't be a multiple game absence. Terance Mann, Amir Coffey and Brandon Boston Jr. would see more minutes without George available. Fantasy managers should check back closer to tip-off for more information.

Wed Dec 819:00Precious Achiuwa Won't Play On WednesdayPrecious AchiuwaCRaptorsFree Agent
Toronto Raptors forward Precious Achiuwa (shoulder) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was a late addition to the injury report as he continues dealing with a lingering shoulder issue. The Raptors are going to take the cautious approach and hold out Achiuwa for Wednesday's contest. Chris Boucher should see more run and could be a low cost DFS option for Wednesday's slate.

Wed Dec 818:51Hassan Whiteside To Remain Out On WednesdayHassan WhitesideCJazzFree Agent
Utah Jazz center Hassan Whiteside (glute) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. This marks the second game in a row that Whiteside has missed due to a left glute contusion. The Jazz will likely be forced to go small ball with Rudy Gay and Eric Paschall. Also, Rudy Gobert might be asked to play more minutes than usual without Whiteside available. Gobert appears to be a strong option for DFS contests on Wednesday.

Wed Dec 818:47Nerlens Noel Won't Play Against PacersNerlens NoelCKnicksFree Agent
New York Knicks center Nerlens Noel (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers. He carried a probable tag into this contest, but will sit out as a precaution. Noel actually made the jump into the starting five last game, but is having a tough time staying healthy. Taj Gibson will likely move into the starting five, but Mitchell Robinson will be the better option between the two.

Wed Dec 814:16Caleb Martin Should Sit Out WednesdayCaleb MartinSFHeatFree Agent
Miami Heat forward Caleb Martin (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He has scored in double figures in four of his last five games. However, both Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro are back, which means Martin won't have as big of a role off the bench. Gabe Vincent could see additional playing time if Martin is unable to play. Regardless, neither are reliable options while Butler and Herro are healthy.

Wed Dec 814:12Patrick Beverley To Return On WednesdayPatrick BeverleyPGTimberwolvesFree Agent
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley (groin) will make his return to the court against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. He has missed each of the last six games due to a groin issue. Beverley should move right into the starting five with D'Angelo Russell (ankle) already ruled out for this contest. It's uncertain if Beverley will be limited at all since he missed six games in a row. That being said, Beverley will be a risky DFS option for Wednesday's slate. However, Malik Beasley should continue getting minutes and has plenty of appeal while Russell is out.

Wed Dec 814:08Tyrese Maxey Plans To Play On WednesdayTyrese MaxeyPG76ersFree Agent
Philadelphia 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey (illness) plans to try and play during Wednesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. He sat out of Monday's game due to an illness, but it sounds like he wants to play here. The organization is likely going to wait and see how Maxey feels during shootaround. Shake Milton would lose touches and minutes, assuming Maxey is back. However, fantasy managers probably won't get a final answer until closer to game time on Wednesday.

Wed Dec 814:05Luka Doncic Might Sit Out WednesdayLuka DoncicPGMavericksFree Agent
Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. He played 37 minutes on Tuesday, but appeared to have tweaked his left ankle. He missed one game recently due to a right ankle issue, but this injury is unrelated. The fact it's the second game of a back-to-back set means the Mavericks might be more cautious here. Jalen Brunson would slide into the starting five if Doncic is unable to play. Brunson is a solid streaming option and worth a look in DFS contests, assuming Doncic is out.

Wed Dec 813:52Kyle Anderson Tagged As Doubtful For WednesdayKyle AndersonSFGrizzliesFree Agent
Memphis Grizzlies forward Kyle Anderson (back) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. It sounds like Anderson is in danger of missing his fourth straight contest. Santi Aldama and John Konchar have picked up the slack in his absence. However, neither of them are reliable enough to start in basically any fantasy formats. Fantasy managers should check back later on Wednesday for an update on Anderson, but it sounds like he is headed towards another absence.

Wed Dec 813:48Andre Iguodala Upgraded To QuestionableAndre IguodalaSFWarriorsFree Agent
Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Head coach Steve Kerr mentioned on Tuesday that Iguodala could return for this contest. It's uncertain if the team plans to limit the veteran forward. His return would mean less minutes for Otto Porter Jr. who wasn't a great fantasy option anyway. Iguodala won't have much streaming appeal even if he does play on Wednesday.

Wed Dec 813:43Hassan Whiteside Could Miss Wednesday's GameHassan WhitesideCJazzFree Agent
Utah Jazz center Hassan Whiteside (glute) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He sat out of Sunday's game due to this issue, so hopefully he won't be forced to miss another contest. Rudy Gobert might be asked to play a few more minutes, while Eric Paschall and Rudy Gay get more minutes at the center spot. Gobert could have slightly more fantasy value on Wednesday, assuming Whiteside sits out again. Fantasy managers will need to check back for another update later on Wednesday.

Wed Dec 809:08Jayson Tatum Continues To Carry The CelticsJayson TatumPFCelticsFree Agent
Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum registered a third consecutive 30-point game on Tuesday, leading all scorers with 34 points in a 117-102 loss to the Lakers. He was unconscious at the start of the game, scoring Boston's first 16 points with a 4-for-4 effort from deep. Tatum finished 5-for-7 with three-ball overall and shot 13-for-22 in the game while recording eight rebounds with three assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers. Tatum started his scoring tear since Jaylen Brown (hamstring) dropped out of the lineup, and he has no time to cool down, with Boston back in action on Wednesday against the Clippers.
