NBA Player News
|11/24/2014||Marc Gasol, C|
|Gasol had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 107-91 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night.
Analysis: Gasol, averaging 19.9 points, has scored a combined 62 in Memphis' past two games. His 32 in a win over Boston on Friday matched a career high.
|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 had 20 points 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.
|11/24/2014||LeBron James, F|
|With the Cavaliers on a four-game losing streak and failing to live up to enormous expectations, LeBron James offered a critical analysis of his own game. "I stink," he said. "I'm not doing my job."
Analysis: James believes the Cavs (5-7) will have to overcome even tougher adversity at some point this season. James says he "has to do better" and be more of a leader for Cleveland to snap out of its early season funk.
|11/24/2014||Xavier Henry, G-F|
|Henry has injured his left Achilles tendon in practice. The Lakers announced Henry's injury Monday, and the team believes the tendon is torn.
Analysis: Henry is undergoing an MRI exam to confirm the tear. Henry has played in nine games for the Lakers this season, his second with the club. He struggled with an injury to his surgically repaired knee throughout the preseason, undergoing treatment in Germany to speed his recovery.
|11/24/2014||Eric Gordon, SG|
|The New Orleans Pelicans say Gordon's left shoulder injury will sideline him indefinitely.
Analysis: Team officials say an MRI has revealed that Gordon tore his labrum when he separated his shoulder in a collision with Jazz guard Trey Burke during Saturday night's victory in Utah.
|11/24/2014||Matt Barnes, SF|
|Clippers coach Doc Rivers says Barnes will not play against the Charlotte Hornets due to a calf injury.

Analysis: He's slated to be re-evaluated Sunday in Toronto.
|11/23/2014||Tobias Harris, F|

|11/23/2014||Taj Gibson, F-C|
|Gibson left in the third quarter of Saturday's loss to Portland with a sprained left ankle.
