Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard, C, CHA

News: Howard scored 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-6 FT) to go along with 16 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block over 29 minutes in Saturday's 102-87 win against the Clippers.

Howard collected 16 rebounds in order to clinch his seventh double-double of the season. The veteran center had a dominating night on the defensive glass, collecting 12 rebounds on defense. While he may not average 20-plus points game as he did with Orlando in 2011-12, Howard is averaging a mighty 12.5 rebounds this season. Howard looks to add to this rebound totals when Charlotte takes on Minnesota on Monday.

Nerlens Noel
Mavericks' Nerlens Noel: Plays only three minutes in victory
Nerlens Noel, C, DAL
4:30 AM
News: Noel finished with just two points (1-2 FG), three rebounds and one assist in only three minutes during Saturday's 111-79 victory over Milwaukee.

The fact that Noel was only able to see three minutes of action in a blow-out game, does not bode well for his future. He is currently well down the pecking order, playing behind Dirk Nowitzki, Dwight Powell and even Salah Mejri. The upside remains but until he can find some consistent minutes, he is barely a stash in deeper leagues.

Nikola Vucevic
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Salvages line with defense
Nikola Vucevic, C, ORL
4:12 AM
News: Vucevic finished with just eight points (3-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three steals, two rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 23 minutes during Saturday's 125-85 loss to the Jazz

The Magic were terrible in this one, with the game practically over at half-time. The starters played limited minutes, including Vucevic who saw only 23 minutes. He was able to help owners with three steals and two blocks, but did little else. Since his hot start to the season, he has come back to where we thought he might be heading into opening night. He still remains an excellent option for anyone at the center position.

Clint Capela
Rockets' Clint Capela: Double-doubles in win over Memphis
Clint Capela, C, HOU
2:25 AM
News: Capela totaled 17 points (7-11 FG), 13 rebounds and three blocks in a 104-82 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.

This marks Capela's 11th double-double of the season, as he continues to provide fantasy owners with what they wanted when they drafted him. What's quietly been a nice surprise is his free-throw shooting, as Capela is setting a career-high with a 64 percent free-throw percentage. He's also providing nearly two blocks a game, as his value should only rise with Chris Paul back in the lineup.

Analysis: 

Joel Embiid
76ers' Joel Embiid: Scores 21 points Saturday
Joel Embiid, C, PHI
11/18/2017
News: Embiid scored 21 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3PT, 6-8 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, three assists and one block over 33 minutes in Saturday's 124-116 loss to Golden State.

Following up his stellar performance against the Lakers on Wednesday, Embiid turned in a solid performance, collecting at least 20 points for the ninth time this season. The center's Saturday stat line pales in comparison to his one of a kind stat line of 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks. However, Embiid is a consistent scorer (22.8 points) and rebounder (10.29 rebounds) who is on the verge of breaking out on any given night.

Analysis: 

DeAndre Jordan
Clippers' DeAndre Jordan: Collects eighth double-double
DeAndre Jordan, C, LAC
11/18/2017
News: Jordan scored 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 33 minutes in Saturday's 102-87 loss to Charlotte.

One night removed from a 20 point, 22 rebound performance, Jordan turned in another strong rebounding performance against Charlotte. For the Clippers center, a double-digit rebound night has become the routine this season, tallying 12 games of at least 10 rebounds this season. Collecting his eighth double-double, Jordan is a remarkably consistent performer on the boards. Rebounds will always supplement his lack of high-scoring prowess.

Mason Plumlee
Nuggets' Mason Plumlee: Upgraded to probable Sunday
Mason Plumlee, C, DEN
11/18/2017
News: Plumlee (abdomen) has been upgraded from questionable to probable for Sunday's game against the Lakers, T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports reports.

Plumlee was questionable heading into Friday's game against the Pelicans and ended up playing 19 minutes, so the fact that he's been upgraded to probable doesn't come as too much of a surprise. That said, look for confirmation of his status after Sunday's morning shootaround.

Deyonta Davis
Grizzlies' Deyonta Davis: Recalled from G-League
Deyonta Davis, C, MEM
11/18/2017
News: Davis was recalled from the G-League's Memphis Hustle on Saturday.

Davis had played just eight minutes at the NBA level when he was sent to the G-League, so the team is likely hoping he gained valuable experience in the process. That said, it's still unlikely he sees significant run moving forward.

Analysis: 

Brook Lopez
Lakers' Brook Lopez: Double-double in Friday's loss
Brook Lopez, C, LAL
11/18/2017
News: Lopez scored 19 points (8-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, four blocks and three assists in 31 minutes during Friday's 122-113 loss to the Suns.

He continues to bring some veteran stability to a very young Lakers roster. Lopez now has four double-doubles through 16 games, although he hasn't pulled down more than six boards in any of the other 12 contests, while the four blocks were also a season high.

Analysis: 

Alex Len
Suns' Alex Len: Big double-double in Friday's win
Alex Len, C, PHO
11/18/2017
News: Len scored 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-6 FT) while adding 18 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes off the bench during Friday's 122-113 win over the Lakers.

Tyson Chandler's recent illness didn't push Len into the starting lineup, but it did allow him to show what he can do on the glass. The 24-year-old center has averaged 13.0 points, 15.5 boards and 1.0 blocks over the last two games with Chandler sidelined, giving a glimpse of his fantasy ceiling should the veteran be removed from the Suns' depth chart on a more permanent basis.
