Insight: Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobil will sit to rest, Kawhi Leonard is out with a hand injury and Tony Parker will sit with his hamstring injury. Coming off back-to-back triple overtime games and Gregg Popovich being who he is, this can't be that much of a surprise.
Dwight Howard, C, HOU12/20/2014 2:45:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is probable for Saturday's game.
Insight: That's the good news. The bad news is Howard has an ailing shoulder. The injury apparently won't keep Howard out in the short term, but owners should keep an eye on the situation.

Description: Spurs forward Tim Duncan recorded a double-double on Friday.

Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins played Thursday and played well.
Insight: If Cousins was limited in minutes, we didn't see it. He played 32:49 minutes in all, including all of the fourth quarter and did his usual damage with 27 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. He's a fantasy stud and a must start.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, SAC12/18/2014 8:46:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will start with a minutes limit on Thursday.
Insight: Cousins has been out since Novemeber, so this is great news. He likely needs a little bit more time to get back into game shape, which is why he will be held to limited minutes. Even if he only plays 20 minutes, Cousins is a must-start in fantasy.
Larry Sanders, C, MIL12/18/2014 5:40:00 PM
Description: Bucks forward Larry Sanders will not play Thursday due to a suspension.
Insight: Sanders received his suspension for pushing Nicolas Batum in the back as he went up for a lay up. Zaza Pachulia is the best plug-in option while Sanders is out.

Insight: Adams is seeing around 25 minutes a game, but doesn't produce much with them. He's averaging 7.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 1.2 bpg. As long as Kendrick Perkins is healthy they will split the time fairly evenly and neither will be fantasy worthy.

Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson was targeting a Dec. 15 return date from his foot injury, but didn't play and we have no updates.

Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah (ankle) said he will play and is listed as probable for Thursday's game against New York

Description: Magic center Nikola Vucevic scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the loss to the Celtics.
Insight: Vucevic continues to be a double-double machine as he has two double-doubles in three games since returning from his back injury. The game he missed the double-double, Vucevic had nine rebounds. The Magic center continues to be a top option at his position.

Description: Hornets center Al Jefferson recorded a double-double in the, 111-106, loss to the Suns on Wednesday.

Derrick Favors, F/C, UTA12/17/2014 6:21:00 PM
Description: Jazz power forward Derrick Favors will play versus the Heat on Wednesday.
Insight: Utah played on Tuesday, and Favors sat out, so perhaps the plan was for him to play just one of the two back-to-back games. Favors should be in all lineups on Wednesday.
DeMarcus Cousins, C, SAC12/17/2014 4:45:00 PM
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (illness) practiced on Wednesday and is expected to play on Thursday.
Insight: Owners need to check back tomorrow, but the fact Cousins is practicing is an extremely positive sign. He has missed the past three weeks with viral meningitis.

Derrick Favors, F/C, UTA12/16/2014 6:53:00 PM
Description: Jazz power forward Derrick Favors (ankle) will not play Tuesday against the Pelicans.

Description: Clippers center Spencer Hawes left Friday's game with a left knee injury and is questionable for Monday's game against Detroit.

Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah is doubtful for Monday's game against Atlanta.
Insight: Noah told the Chicago Tribune on Friday that his ankle is feeling better, but the Bulls are excercising extreme caution. Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic will have bigger roles without Noah in the lineup.

Description: Nets center Brook Lopez (knee) will be evaluated next weekend, so he'll obviously continue to miss games until then.

Insight: The Rockets were supposed to ease Howard back into the lineup with 20-24 minutes on Saturday. Instead, he played 30 minutes and made 9-of-11 shots. Howard continues to struggle at the line, but that is to be expected. He also had 13 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal. Great first night back for Howard.
Nikola Vucevic, C, ORL12/13/2014 9:57:00 PM
Description: Magic center Nikola Vucevic scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in his return to the lineup on Saturday.
Insight: It was Vucevic's first game since Nov. 30 as he missed the last six games with a back injury. Vucevic didn't get a ton of shot attempts, 13, but his 69.2 percent helped Vucevic earn the double-double. He should be put back into starting fantasy lineups.
Nerlens Noel, C, PHI12/13/2014 7:13:00 PM
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel will come off the bench on Saturday with Henry Sims starting.
Insight: Noel has struggled a lot lately. He has scored more than 10 points just once in the last five games, so fantasy owners might want to think about benching him too.

Description: Magic center Nikola Vucevic will start on Saturday against the Hawks.
Insight: Vuecvic will replace Kyle O'Quinn in the starting lineup. He along with Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo will lose opportunities with Vuecvic back in the lineup.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is expected to play 20-24 minutes in his return on Saturday according to Fox 26 Houston.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) is listed as probable for Saturda's contest against the Nuggets.
