Date Player
12/20/2014 Darrell Arthur, F-C
The oft-injured Arthur is out with a lower leg strain for the Nuggets.

Analysis: He's played well at times, but just can't seem to stay on the court.
12/20/2014 Nicolas Batum, G-F
Batum missed Friday's game against the Spurs due to wrist and knee injuries.

Analysis: Batum took a hard fall in Portland's game against Sacramento on Wednesday. He may take some time to recover.
12/20/2014 Kawhi Leonard, G-F
Leonard missed his second straight game with a torn ligament in his right hand.

Analysis: He's listed as day to day and the Spurs could certainly use help following back-to-back triple-overtime defeats.
12/20/2014 Kendrick Perkins, C
Perkins sat out Friday's game against the Lakers with a knee contusion.

Analysis: Perkins is day to day, though he doesn't have much fantasy value.
12/20/2014 Deron Williams, PG
Williams suffered a calf injury Friday and is expected to have an MRI this weekend.

Analysis: Williams will find out more about his injury soon, but for now he's day to day.
12/20/2014 Russell Westbrook, PG
Westbrook topped the 30-point threshold once again Friday.

Analysis: He scored 31 points and added 10 assists in Oklahoma City's win over Los Angeles. Westbrook has now gone for 30 or more points in three consecutive games.
12/20/2014 Derrick Favors, F-C
Favors finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds in a 101-94 win at Orlando on Friday.

Analysis: It was his first double-double since Dec. 5, also against the Magic.
12/20/2014 Reggie Jackson, G
Jackson scored 25 points in Oklahoma City's win over Los Angeles on Friday.

Analysis: It was Jackson's first big game since the return of Russell Westbrook, although Kevin Durant was sidelined with injury. He remains a very inconsistent fantasy option.
12/20/2014 Tobias Harris, F
Harris continues to be productive for the Magic, scoring 24 with three 3-pointers in Friday's loss to Utah.

Analysis: Harris is averaging a career-high 18.6 points on the season. He's also shot 54.8 percent from the field over his last three games.
12/20/2014 Kobe Bryant, G
Bryant tied a season-low with nine points in Friday's loss to Oklahoma City.

Analysis: Despite being cold, Bryant still took a team-high 15 shots. His production may be inconsistent at times, but Bryant's usage will remain high all season.
12/20/2014 Ed Davis, F-C
Davis scored a season-high 19 points in Friday's loss to Oklahoma City.

Analysis: He was eight for 10 from the field and added nine rebounds.
12/20/2014 Blake Griffin, F-C
Griffin scored 32 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in Friday's loss to Denver.

Analysis: It marked his second consecutive night with 30 or more points and 12 or more boards.
12/20/2014 Nate Robinson, G
Robinson scored 20 points in just over 15 minutes of action Friday.

Analysis: Robinson played a major role in Denver's win over Los Angeles with his production of the bench. He had not scored in double figures since Nov. 7, so he still carries very little fantasy value.
12/20/2014 Pau Gasol, F-C
Gasol scored a season-low six points in Chicago's win over Memphis on Friday.

Analysis: Consider this simply a blip on the radar for Gasol, who is still a viable fantasy option moving forward.
12/20/2014 Jimmy Butler, G-F
Butler scored 31 points and grabbed 10 boards Friday against Memphis.

Analysis: He has now topped the 30-point mark in consecutive games after previously accomplishing the feat just twice in his career.
12/20/2014 Nikola Mirotic, F
Mirotic posted the best game of his young career Friday against Memphis.

Analysis: He scored 27 points, was 6 for 6 from behind the arc and added eight rebounds to Chicago's victory over the Grizzlies.
12/20/2014 Damian Lillard, PG
Lillard scored a season-high 43 points in Portland's triple-overtime win over San Antonio.

Analysis: He also added six assists and two steals to the win. Lillard has averaged 21.6 points per game this season.
12/20/2014 Kemba Walker, PG
Walker finished with 30 points with five assists and three 3-pointers in Friday's 109-91 win at Philadelphia.

Analysis: Walker seems to be in the midst of a hot stretch, averaging 27.0 points while hitting 8 of 14 from beyond the arc in his last three games.
12/20/2014 Robert Covington, PF
Covington finished with another solid effort Friday with 19 points in a loss to the Hornets. He went 6 for 8 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Covington is averaging 19.0 points while hitting 17 of 37 from beyond the arc in four games since moving into the starting lineup.
12/20/2014 LaMarcus Aldridge, F-C
Aldridge recorded one of the best games of his season Friday in Portland's triple-overtime win over San Antonio.

Analysis: He scored 32 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and had five steals. He's in the midst of another phenomenal season.
