Waiver wire watch:

  • Allen Iverson: possibility of returning to Philly too good to ignore
  • Jrue Holiday: if A.I. doesn’t work, he’ll get plenty of minutes
  • Mike Dunleavy: finally back, will steadily return to form
  • Tim Thomas: surprisingly strong return, good for threes and inconsistency
  • Chris Andersen: slow start but doing well lately
  • Martell Webster: starting job and minutes will be there while Travis Outlaw is out
  • Omri Casspi: good for points, threes and steals
  • Jamaal Tinsley: could eventually overtake Mike Conley
  • Nick Young: thriving with Mike Miller sidelined and Caron Butler not 100 percent
  • Thabo Sefolosha: still starting, putting up good all-around numbers
  • Luke Ridnour: putting up sporadicly nice lines, deserves a look

Injury watch:

  • Michael Redd (knee): out again for more recovery
  • Elton Brand (hamstring): could be back tonight
  • Lou Williams (jaw): out for about two months
  • Kirk Hinrich (wrist): day-to-day
  • Erick Dampier (illness): could return to practice this week
  • Ben Gordon (ankle): could play tonight, will return soon enough
  • Andrew Bogut (leg): making good progress, still out about two to three more weeks
  • Spencer Hawes (knee): could return tonight, will be back soon
  • Manu Ginobili (groin): could play tonight
  • Paul Millsap (knee): won’t miss much time
  • Andrei Kirilenko (back): will miss up to a week
  • Kevin Love (hand): practicing, on track to return on Dec. 11

Stock watch:

↑ Greg Oden: foul trouble only hurdle to consistency

↑ Carlos Boozer: continues to play like a beast

↑ Leandro Barbosa: wrist still a concern, steady lately

↑ Ersan Ilyasova: should be great while Redd and Bogut are out

↑ Mo Williams: three-point monster

↓ Roy Hibbert: who knew Jeff Foster would kill his value?

↓ Matt Bonner: Antonio McDyess now starting at center, taking most of the minutes

↓ Danilo Gallinari: continues to decline into irrelevance

↓ Larry Hughes: minutes will be unpredictable going forward

↓ Mike Conley: disappointing
