Lakers guard Kobe Bryant did not practice on Saturday.

News
Bulls forward Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle on Friday for a third time since last spring.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Gibson will likely sit out longer with this sprain because the same injury keeps reoccuring. Gibson said he wants to be out there and play, but it is a long season and that he needs to rest and get healthy. That could help the value of Nikola Mirotic, who posted 24 points and 11 rebounds replacing Gibson on Friday, but Pau Gasol will play in front of Mirotic once he is healthy.

Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic replaced the injured Taj Gibson on Friday and scored a career-high 24 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
This makes Mirotic the hottest add in fantasy at the moment, but Gibson's X-rays were negative on his ankle, so do not get too hyped up because Mirotic's minutes aren't guaranteed. Mirotic would still be a nice add in standard leagues as long as owners don't drop a player of need.

News
In case you hadn't noticed, Jazz point guard Trey Burke has hauled in 24 rebounds over the past two games.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Double-digit rebounding guards don't come around very often. It appears his coach challenged him to be more aggressive and the results are stunning. Added to his 14.8 ppg and 3.0 apg, if he can keep it up, Burke could turn out to be a fantasy stud.

sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Iguodala had his best game shooting, going 7-for-8 from the field and making both 3-pointers he took. He was able to turn in those numbers in 25 minutes, which is his season average. Iguodala should continue to see that kind of volume in minutes and shot attempts, but he obviously won't continue to make them at a 87.5 percent clip.

News
Lakers guard Kobe Bryant shot just 27 percent on Friday as he continues to chuck up shots.
sportsnetwork.com

Impact
Bryant is averaging 25.5 shot attempts per game in November and 24.0 for the season. He obviously feels the pressure to score a lot due to the lack of talent on the Lakers. That means big numbers most nights, but occasionally he is going to be off and his percentage will suffer a lot.
