NBA Player News
|11/24/2014||Al Jefferson, F-C|
|Jefferson had 22 points and 12 rebounds in Sunday's loss to Miami for his second straight double-double.
Analysis: Jefferson has been particularly beastly over his last three games with 24.7 points on 54.2 percent shooting - though they've all been Hornets losses.
|11/24/2014||Luol Deng, F|
|Deng scored 26 on 10-of-14 shooting and grabbed a season-high eight rebounds in Sunday's win over Charlotte.
Analysis: Deng's 50.3 field-goal percentage is the second-highest of his career.
|11/24/2014||Mario Chalmers, G|
|Chalmers scored 20 with 10 assists in Sunday's win over Charlotte.
Analysis: Chalmers is enjoying quite the run of late, averaging 20.0 points on 57.6 percent shooting in his last six games.
|11/24/2014||Chris Bosh, F-C|
|Bosh had 20 points and 10 rebounds for his sixth double-double in Sunday's win over the Hornets.
Analysis: Bosh is averaging 26.7 points over his last three games after scoring 13.5 points per game in the previous four.
|11/24/2014||LaMarcus Aldridge, F-C|
|Aldridge scored 20 and tied a season high with 14 rebounds in Sunday's win at Boston.
Analysis: Aldrige, who was 7 of 21 from the field, is shooting a career-low 45.0 percent. He's still a stud with 21.3 points and 8.6 rebounds a game, though.
|11/24/2014||Damian Lillard, PG|
|Lillard had a tough shooting night, going 4 of 14 for 12 points in Sunday's win at Boston, though he recorded a career-high nine rebounds.
Analysis: Lillard has been one of the league's better rebounding point guards with 5.5 rebounds per game. It's not what you're relying on him for as a fantasy owner, but it gives him a little extra value compared to other comparable players.
|11/24/2014||Jeff Green, G-F|
|Green scored 19 in Sunday's loss to Portland.
Analysis: Green is averaging a career-high 18.4 points but continues to be inconsistent at times. He had totaled only 23 points in his previous two games.
|11/24/2014||Jared Sullinger, F-C|
|Sullinger had 19 points on a rough 8-for-22 shooting night in Sunday's loss to Portland.
Analysis: Sullinger's 47.9 field-goal percentage is still a big improvement from the 42.7 percent clip he shot at last season.
|11/24/2014||Ty Lawson, PG|
|Lawson notched another double-double Sunday.
Analysis: Lawson had 18 points and 16 assists in a virtuoso effort. Use him Tuesday against the Bulls, who figure to be without superstar Derrik Rose.
|11/24/2014||Kobe Bryant, G|
|Bryant had 27 points on 10-of-24 shooting Sunday.
Analysis: Bryant faces Memphis in his next game and that kind of defense should stifle the aging veteran. Don't expect him to be gun-shy so upwards of 30 shots - mostly misses - can be expected.
|11/23/2014||Cory Joseph, PG|
|Joseph missed Saturday's game against Brooklyn due to a sprained left ankle.
Analysis: It's unclear how serious the injury is.
|11/23/2014||James Johnson, F|
|Johnson missed his third straight game Saturday due to a sprained right ankle.
Analysis: Johnson is set to be re-evaluated Sunday in Toronto.
|11/23/2014||Tyler Hansbrough, F-C|
|Hansbrough missed a second straight game Saturday due to a sprained right shoulder.
Analysis: He's slated to be re-evaluated Sunday in Toronto.
|11/23/2014||Tobias Harris, F|
|Harris missed Saturday's loss to Miami with a strained right calf.
Analysis: Harris is day to day.
|11/23/2014||Taj Gibson, F-C|
|Gibson left in the third quarter of Saturday's loss to Portland with a sprained left ankle.
Analysis: Gibson, who came down on Portland's Wesley Matthews, clutched his ankle and grimaced in pain before he was helped off the court. The 6-foot-9 forward was averaging 12.9 points and 5.9 rebounds coming into the game. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he didn't think it was serious, but Gibson left the Moda Center in a boot and on crutches. "We'll see where he is (Sunday)," Thibodeau said.
|11/23/2014||Norris Cole, PG|
|Cole didn't play Saturday against the Magic after suffering a dislocated finger in Thursday's loss to the Clippers.
Analysis: Coach Erik Spoelstra said Cole is wearing a splint, but "it could turn into a playable splint."
|11/23/2014||Gerald Green, G-F|
|Green scored 23 points in Saturday's 106-83 win at Indiana.
Analysis: Green shot 8 of 15, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range. While the offense should be there all season, Green doesn't offer much in the way of steals or blocks.
|11/23/2014||Dirk Nowitzki, F-C|
|Nowitzki had a tough night Saturday, finishing with 11 points on 4-of-18 shooting in the loss to Houston.
Analysis: Dirk's 51.6 field-goal percentage is the second-highest of his career, so performances like Saturday's have been few and far between.
|11/23/2014||Chris Copeland, F|
|Copeland finished with eight points in 30 minutes in Saturday's loss to Phoenix.
Analysis: After getting off to a great start, Copeland is averaging just 7.5 points on 30.6 percent shooting over the last four games.
|11/23/2014||Tyson Chandler, C|
|Chandler had 13 points and 13 rebounds in Saturday's loss at Houston.
Analysis: Chandler has six double-doubles in 14 games.
