Game watch:
4 games: ATL, CHI, CLE, DEN, DET, IND, LAC, LAL, MIA, MIN, NY, OKC, ORL, POR, TOR, UTA
3 games: BOS, CHA, DAL, GS, HOU, MEM, MIL, NJ, NO, PHI, PHO, SAC, SA, WAS

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Josh McRoberts: putting up solid numbers across the board lately, playing minutes at center
  • Shane Battier: has blocked at least one shot in 15 straight games, playing well lately
  • Marvin Williams: worth a look so long as Joe Johnson is out
  • Larry Sanders: worth a look if you need blocks in a deep league
  • Glen Davis: has been solid for most of the season
  • Brandon Bass: thrived with Dwight Howard out of the lineup, worth consideration in deep leagues
  • James Harden: has been good whenever Kevin Durant has missed games
  • Amir Johnson: will be rocky, but should be worth owning in most leagues
  • Joel Przybilla: finally back, should be decent for rebounds and blocks
  • Mario Chalmers: getting decent run lately, should at least be monitored in most leagues
  • Jodie Meeks: had a big game Saturday, starting gig seems safe for now
  • Leandro Barbosa: past two games have been solid

Injury watch:

  • Joey Graham (flu): day-to-day
  • J.J. Hickson (flu): ditto
  • Ryan Anderson (foot): ditto
  • Jameer Nelson (flu): ditto
  • J.J. Redick (flu): ditto
  • Dwight Howard (flu): ditto
  • Mickael Pietrus (flu): ditto
  • Chris Andersen (back): ditto
  • Kevin Durant (knee): ditto
  • Anthony Tolliver (knee): sprained MCL, could be out for a spell
  • Michael Beasley (ankle): should be back soon
  • Rodney Carney (foot): day-to-day
  • Nick Young (thigh): playing through it, but worth monitoring
  • Drew Gooden (foot): plantar fasciitis, day-to-day
  • Andris Biedrins (illness): upset stomach forced him out early Thursday, should be fine
  • Devin Harris (knee): could return today
  • Jonas Jerebko (Achilles): took off walking boot, could return in February
  • Pau Gasol (hamstring): didn’t practice Saturday, will likely see limited minutes
  • Aaron Brooks (ankle): eying Dec. 10 as his return date

Stock watch:

↑ Beno Udrih: got his starting job back Saturday, responded with 16/3/6 with two threes

↑ Carlos Boozer: finally hit 30 minutes Saturday, finished with 25/9 along with a steal and a block

↑ Jason Richardson: hot streak continues, averaged 4.3 threes per game this past week

↑ Amar’e Stoudemire: finally found his groove in New York, averaged 35/11/4/1/1 this past week

↑ Marc Gasol: gaining traction, averaging 2.6 blocks in his last five games

↓ Manu Ginobili: finally showing signs of vulnerability, shooting 24 percent (6-25) from the field in his last two games

↓ Darren Collison: he’s pretty much a bust this season

↓ Luol Deng: as expected, Boozer’s return has dented Deng’s production

↓ Gilbert Arenas: back to the bench

↓ Hedo Turkoglu: finally moved to the bench, upside is even more limited now
