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

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.

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.

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