Insight: DeRozan had said he needed more practices before he'd be ready. Once DeRozan (19.4 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 2.6 apg, 1.4 spg) is back on the court, he should immediately go back into fantasy lineups.

Insight: This is fantasy news for fantasy owners as DeRozan is week-to-week. Despite the week-to-week status, he probably won't return until January.
