10/31/2014 Vitor Faverani, C Faverani is expected to be sidelined six to eight weeks after undergoing knee surgery earlier this month.

Analysis: Faverani already underwent surgery on his meniscus in March, so this setback is especially discouraging.
10/31/2014 Marcin Gortat, C Gortat had 20 points and 12 rebounds in Thursday's win at Orlando.

Analysis: Gortat is off to a strong start with 38 points in two games on 17-of-27 shooting. He's also plus-18 for the Wizards.
10/31/2014 John Wall, PG Wall enjoyed a big night in Thursday's win at Orlando, scoring 30 points with 12 assists.

Analysis: Wall, who also had two steals, only committed two turnovers after having six in Wednesday's opening loss at Miami.
10/31/2014 Nikola Vucevic, F-C Vucevic scored 23 and grabbed 12 rebounds in Thursday's loss to Washington.

Analysis: Vucevic has shown in the past he's capable of putting up big numbers, and he should be even more valuable with Victor Oladipo sidelined, leaving more shots available.
10/31/2014 Evan Fournier, SG Fournier scored 21 points on 8-of-10 shooting in Thursday's loss to the Wizards

Analysis: After bombing in Tuesday's opener with 11 points on 3-of-11 shooting, Fournier took much better advantage of the opportunity afforded to him by Victor Oladipo's injury. He's worth starting, at least with Oladipo sidelined.
10/31/2014 Ben Gordon, SG Gordon scored 22 points in Thursday's loss to Washington.

Analysis: Gordon showed he might have some one-dimensional fantasy value - as a scorer - after struggling in the opener with five points on 1-of-8 shooting.
10/31/2014 D.J. Augustin, PG Augustin scored 20 points and had six assists in Thursday's loss at Minnesota.

10/31/2014 Caron Butler, SF Butler scored 24 points in Thursday's loss at Minnesota and collected eight rebounds.

Analysis: Butler isn't worth starting but could be a player to keep an eye on.
10/31/2014 Thaddeus Young, F Young scored 19 and was 7 of 13 from the field in Thursday's win over Detroit.

Analysis: Young has 45 points on 17-of-31 shooting through his first two games with the Timberwolves. He also has five steals.
10/31/2014 Nikola Pekovic, C Pekovic scored 17 and grabbed 10 rebounds in Thursday's win over Detroit.

10/30/2014 Roy Hibbert, C Hibbert had 22 points, eight rebounds and seven blocks in Wednesday's opener against Philadelphia.

Analysis: Hibbert is off to a great start after a forgettable showing last season. He finished 6 of 8 from the floor and made 10 of 13 free throws.
10/30/2014 Tony Wroten, PG Wroten had 22 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in Wednesday's opener at Indiana.

Analysis: Wroten could prove valuable until Michael Carter-Williams returns from injury.
10/30/2014 Donald Sloan, G Sloan had 16 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in Wednesday's opener against Philadelphia.

Analysis: Sloan could prove valuable until George Hill and C.J. Watson return from injury.
10/30/2014 Kemba Walker, PG Walker hit a 21-footer from the top of the key with 5 seconds left in overtime to lift Charlotte to a 108-106 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

Analysis: Williams should continue to post solid numbers as long he remains healthy.
10/30/2014 Rajon Rondo, PG After missing the entire exhibition season, Rondo had 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds in Wednesday's opener against Brooklyn.

Analysis: Fantasy owners have to be thrilled with what they saw from Rondo. "He looks like himself," coach Brad Stevens said. "He kind of looks like what I saw on film before I got here. I don't think he ever looked like that at any time last year. ... But he is back to full speed. And it's really good to see."
10/30/2014 Kelly Olynyk, C Olynyk led eight Celtics in double figures with 19 points in Wednesday's opener against Brooklyn.

Analysis: Olynyk also added six rebounds while shooting 8 of 14. He should continue to post solid numbers as long as the minutes are there.

Analysis: It's unclear when Butler will be able to return.
10/30/2014 Glen Rice Jr., G-F Rice had been dealing with a sore ankle and didn't play in Wednesday's opener.
