Toney Wroten finished with a triple-double in his first career start Wednesday in place of Michael Carter-Williams who was a late scratch due to a sore foot. (RotoInfo.com) (11/14)
Expert Advice: It was 'Murder She Wroten' Wednesday night as Wroten flashing his versatility, and potential, scoring 18 points on 7 of 18 shooting (2-for-2 from 3-point range) with 10 rebounds, 11 assists, and a block in 41 minutes of the 123-117 overtime win against a depleted Rockets squad. Unfortunately, Wroten's Fantasy value will likely only last as long as MCW is out.

Goran Dragic left Thursday's loss to the Trail Blazers in the fourth quarter to go get 13 stitches above his left eye after colliding with Mo Williams. (RotoInfo.com) (11/14)
Expert Advice: I guess with a name like Goran it should not be a surprise that Dragic seems to be making a habit of running into players.Wednesday's collusion was the second time, in this young season, that Dragic has been knocked out of a game due to colliding with another player. Luckily Dragic has not been seriously hurt, yet, and should be ready to play Friday versus the Nets.

Update: Trevor Ariza told the Washington Post after Wednesday's game versus the Spurs that he heard a pop when he sustained his hamstring injury late in the second quarter. Ariz will undergo an MRI Thursday. (RotoInfo.com) (11/14)
Expert Advice: Popp'n Bottles, Popp'n Tops all funPopp'n hamstrings not so much. It seems like Ariza may miss an extended period of time, if he does than Martell Webster would likely see more 30-plus minute games as he did Wednesday when he scored 21 points, grabbed 10 boards, and had four steals in 35 minutes. Add Webster now, but temper your expectations some, as Wednesday's game is more of Webster's ceiling than a regular occurrence.

Jeremy Lin set a Rocket's franchise record with nine 3-pointers Wednesday on his way to 34 points, five rebounds, and 12 assists in their 123-117 overtime loss to the the Sixers. (RotoInfo.com) (11/14)
Expert Advice: Lin has now scored 30-plus points in back-to-back games while shooting over 55% (20-for-36) from the field over his last two games. While many discounted Lin going into the season, it is looking like he is the better Fantasy option over teammate Patrick Beverley, but both are worth owing in all formats.
F - Orl
Arron Afflalo scored a career-high 36 points on 11 of 15 shooting in the Magics win over the Bucks. (RotoInfo.com) (11/14)
Expert Advice: Afflalo not only had a career game, but is having a career year, as he is averaging career high production in just about every statistical category this season.

Blake Griffin's huge night, 22 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists, and three steals, helped lead Clippers to -103 win over OKC Wednesday night. (RotoInfo.com) (11/14)
F - Den
Wilson Chandler was a little rusty, but effective in his first game back scoring 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, two steals, and no turnovers in 21 minutes of their -99 win over the Lakers Wednesday. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
Expert Advice: Chandler should only get better as he gets back into game playing shape and is worth adding if you have the chance in all formats as he should see more opportunities this season with the departure of Andre Iguodala this off-season and Danilo Gallinari still without a timetable for when he will return after tearing his ACL last season.

Robin Lopez's double-double, 13 points and 15 rebounds, helps the Trail Blazers to a 90-89 win over the Suns Wednesday. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
Expert Advice: RLo is one of the least sexiest players in the league, but if you can get past the goofy hair and dirt patch on his chin, then you will be able to enjoy his double-double production potential. (Lopez currently has a three game double-double streak going with at least one block or steal in every game this season).

Only three players over the last 30 NBA seasons have registered 200-plus points and 120-plus rebounds in first eight games to start a season, Moses Malone (twice), Shaq, and now Kevin Love has done it for the second time in his career. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
Expert Advice: Kevin Love accomplished this same feat in 2011-2012, and pretty amazing considering how much Love's skill set differs from Moses and Shaq.

Thomas Robinson made the most of his opportunity in Wednesday's win over the Suns scoring a team high 15 points, along with eight boards, a block and a steal in 17 minutes of the bench. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
Expert Advice: Thomas Robinson tied his career high in points and six field goals, and the eight rebounds were a season high for him. Robinson has shown that he could provide similar Fantasy value as Taj Gibson, in that when both players get the minutes they are a threat to get double-doubles on the reg. Unfortunately, Robinson has not seen regular playing time, yet. Put him no your watch list for now.

The NBA is likely to look into DeAndre Jordan stepping on the floor during the altercation just before halftime, which may result warrant a suspension according to league rules. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
Expert Advice: DeAndre Jordan stepped on the floor when teammate Matt Barnes and Serge Ibaka got in a little tussle that resulted in both Ibaka and Barnes getting ejected. As of now it is just speculation that the NBA will look at what Jordan did. We will keep you posted if any news develops.
F - LAC
Matt Barnes was ejected in the first half of Wednesday's game with the Thunder. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
Expert Advice: Barnes shoved Ibaka, but it was nothing too aggressive, nor did it escalate, so other than a fine Barnes seems like he would be available for the Clippers next game.
C - OKC
Serge Ibaka was ejected in the first half of Wednesday's game with the Clippers. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
Expert Advice: Ibaka did not really do enough to warrant an ejection, so it is doubtful any type of suspension will be handed out, thus he should be ready to go for Thursday's matchup in ORACLE Arena against the Warriors.

John Wall did not finish Wednesday's game because he was poked in the eye. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)

Alec Burks is in at point guard to start the second half. John Lucas starts the second half on the bench after going 0-for-6 from 3-point range in the first half. (RotoInfo.com) (11/13)
