2016 NBA Fantasy Basketball Waiver Advice: Dec. 9

J.R. Smith Headshot

J.R. Smith (knee) will not play in Friday's game.

Smith has been a fantasy basketball non-factor. His offense has really been missing this year, and with his absence, Shumpert should see some more time.

Kevin Love Headshot

Kevin Love (back) will warm up and try to play on Friday.

If Love doesn't play, James Jones will see some extra time. Love appeared to have injured his back in the Cavs last game, but the injury doesn't appear to be too major is he has a chance at playing tonight. Love is still a must play in seasonal leagues if he does suit up.

Nikola Vucevic Headshot

Nikola Vucecic (eye) will play in Friday's game.

Vucevic played through this same injury last game, and his minutes and performance really wasn't any different than a normal night. Vucevic draws a nice matchup against Charlotte tonight, and his fantasy value is slightly higher due to that.

Al-Farouq Aminu Headshot

Al-Farouq Aminu (back) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game.

Aminu has been a nice NBA player this season, but offensive/fantasy numbers haven't really been there. If Aminu fails to play, as expected, then we should see more minutes from Ed Davis and Meyers Leonard.

Moe Harkless Headshot

Maurice Harkless (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's game.

Harkless has been averaging 13 points and 5.4 rebounds per game this season. He has been a decent option based on matchups, but injured his ankle last Wednesday. If Harkless does play (as expected) tomorrow, then Evan Turner's minutes will reduce slightly from Thursday's game.

Matt Barnes Headshot

The NYPD is closing in on an arrest warrant for Kings forward Matt Barnes for his involvement in a skirmish in a Chelsea nightclub over the weekend.

Innocent until proven guilty and it seems that Barnes may be guilty. Barnes will likely get charged with a misdemeanor assault on one of the women who was pushed or choked or sustained some sort of injury over the weekend.

Blake Griffin Headshot

Blake Griffin has a sore right knee and will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

The good news is it isn't the leg that gave him all the issue last season. He does have swelling in the knee and with the Clippers only having one game from now until Monday, it might be smart just to rest him. If he does not play expect DeAndre Jordan to step up along with Paul Pierce, Brandon Bass and Mo Speights.

Ivica Zubac Headshot

Lakers recalled Ivica Zubac from the D-League.

Time for Zubac to step up for the Lakers as they are dealing with multiple injuries. In the six games in the D-League, he has averaged 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds. He is a guy to keep an eye on as the season progresses.
