Pablo Prigioni (illness) will be available for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.
He isn't a big part of the rotation anyways, so fantasy owners can ignore this report for now.

Jusuf Nurkic (knee) will return in December?

Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post said that Jusuf Nurkic (knee) is making progress and should be able to return "sometime in December."
This isn't a surprise as he has been expected to return in December for a little while now, but it's nice to hear it again. Nurkic took some contact in practice on Monday, but expect the Nuggets to limit his minutes once he is able to return. Nurkic should have a significant role down the stretch, so he's a quality stash in most leagues.

Paul Pierce will move back to the bench

Paul Pierce will move to the bench for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.
Pierce started vs. the Raptors on Sunday and played just 19 minutes, but the Clippers will likely continue to shuffle their lineup until they find some success. Pierce is only an option in deeper fantasy leagues. Wes Johnson will draw the start on Tuesday.

Kenneth Faried (ankle) out for Tuesday night

Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Tuesday.
It'll be Darrell Arthur and Nikola Jokic manning the big-position minutes. Arthur played his best game in a long time with a 21-point outing vs. GSW and Jokic is coming off a double-double. Both are terrific plays in DFS in favorable matchups. Faried owners just have to be patient here from an injury that didn't looks serious. Will Barton, Gary Harris and Danilo Gallinari also benefit.

Wes Johnson will start, Paul Pierce to bench
Wes Johnson | LAC
(November 24, 2015 8:22 PM EST)
Wes Johnson will start on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets with Paul Pierce moving to the bench.
The Clippers haven't gotten a lot of production out of Pierce or Lance Stephenson, so it will be interesting to see if Johnson can build some momentum. Johnson's minutes will still be relatively low with the starters, so owners in deeper leagues can use a wait-and-see approach.

DeMarcus Cousins (back, thigh) doubtful Wed

DeMarcus Cousins (back, thigh) is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks.
He sat out of Tuesday's optional practice and is dealing with a lower back strain as well as a sore thigh. Cousins is clearly ailing right now and the Kings will want to be cautious, so don't be surprised if takes the day off on Wednesday. Kosta Koufos will likely benefit the most, while Willie Cauley-Stein will be pressed into a larger role as well. Additionally, Rudy Gay and Rajon Rondo would be nice DFS targets.

JaMychal Green will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.
Zach Randolph (knee) is sidelined again, but Matt Barnes will get the nod in the first unit tonight. Green is only on the radar in deeper leagues anyways.
Zach Randolph (knee) will not play Tuesday

Zach Randolph (knee) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.
He is expected to be on the active list, but he won't see the floor unless it's an emergency. Matt Barnes will draw the start and has been playing well recently, while JaMychal Green and Jeff Green will play more as well. Consider Z-Bo day-to-day.

Matt Barnes will start on Tuesday vs. Dallas
Matt Barnes | MEM
(November 24, 2015 7:59 PM EST)
Matt Barnes will start on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks and JaMychal Green will return to the bench.
Zach Randolph (knee) will not play on Tuesday, so Barnes is set to see a lot of minutes tonight. Barnes has played 31 or more minutes in the last two games that Randolph sat out, so he's worth a look for anyone in need of short-term value.

Tyreke Evans (knee) is listed as doubtful Wed
Tyreke Evans | NO
(November 24, 2015 7:41 PM EST)
Tyreke Evans (knee) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. Phoenix.
An earlier report indicated that Evans will be a game-time decision, but it's still great news that he has a shot to play considering he is way ahead of his original timetable. We should know more regarding his status after the team's shootaround. His potential return could dampen the value of guys like Eric Gordon, Ish Smith and Dante Cunningham.
