Description: Spurs guard Danny Green turned in another very solid fantasy night.
Insight: Green hit 4-of-8 3-pointers, going 6-for-11 from the field overall. He also had five rebounds and three blocks. Green is a solid option for anyone needing help with 3-pointers, rebounds or blocks.

Chandler Parsons, F, DAL1/28/2015 10:40:00 PM
Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons had 21 points versus the Rockets on Wednesday.
Insight: Parsons really only supplies shooting totals and will have the occassional off night, so he isn't as valuable in fantasy as one might expect. Parsons is averaging 17.4 ppg with just 1.8 apg and 1.8 rpg over his last five games.
James Harden, G, HOUHot1/28/2015 10:38:00 PM
Description: Rockets guard James Harden had a quiet night for his standards.
Insight: Harden scored 17 points, shooting 7-for-14 from the field. He hit just one 3-pointer and only had three free-throw attempts. Harden did also have eight assists, five rebounds and four steals, so by no means it was a complete dud, fantasy owners just come to expect big nights from the league MVP favorite.
Monta Ellis, G, DAL1/28/2015 10:36:00 PM
Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis carried Dallas with 33 points on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough versus the Rockets.

Description: Rockets forward Josh Smith came off the bench and led Houston in scoring on Wednesday.
Insight: Smith had 18 points, shooting 7-of-13 from the field. He was 4-for-5 from the 3-point line. Smith can be lethal from deep, but he will probably not get enough opportunities to be fantasy relevant.
Jeff Teague, PG, ATL1/28/2015 10:33:00 PM
Description: Hawks point guard Jeff Teague had 13 points and 11 assists on Wednesday.
Insight: Teague was one of three Hawks players with a double-double. He led the team in assists versus the Nets. Teague was 6-for-16 from the field.
Al Horford, C, ATL1/28/2015 10:32:00 PM
Description: Hawks forward Al Horford was one of three Atlanta players with double-doubles on Wednesday.
Insight: Horford was second on the team with 20 points and 10 rebounds, but he also had five assists to turn in a very solid fantasy night. He was 10-of-13 from the field. Horford is a must-start in all leagues.
Joe Johnson, G/F, BRK1/28/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: Nets guard Joe Johnson was 10-of-19 from the field on his way to 26 points versus the Hawks on Wednesday.

Description: Hawks power forward Paul Millsap had a monster game versus the Nets to help Atlanta extend its winning streak to 17 games.
Insight: Millsap had 28 points and 15 rebounds, but he was also stellar in the percentage categories. He shot 5-of-9, including 3-for-5 from the 3-point line and was 15-for-16 at the line. Millsap also chipped in two blocks, an assist and a steal.
Gorgui Dieng, C, MIN1/28/2015 10:22:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng recorded a double-double versus the Celtics.

Zach LaVine, G, MIN1/28/2015 10:21:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves rookie point guard Zach LaVine had a great shooting night versus the Celtics.
Insight: LaVine was 7-of-9 from the field, including 1-for-1 from the 3-point line. He was also 2-for-2 at the free-throw line. Perhaps he was excited to hear he will be participating in the slam dunk contest.
Jared Sullinger, C, BOS1/28/2015 10:20:00 PM
Description: Celtics center/forward Jared Sullinger led the Boston starters with 16 points and eight rebounds on Wednesday.

Kevin Martin, G, MIN1/28/2015 10:19:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves shooting guard Kevin Martin came off the bench and scored a game-high 21 points.

Lou Williams, SG, TOR1/28/2015 10:03:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Louis Williams came off the bench and scored a game-high 27 points versus the Kings on Wednesday.
Insight: Williams was 7-for-16 from the field, including 4-for-12 from th 3-point line. He was a perfect 9-of-9 at the line as well. Williams will occasionally have games like this, but he cannot be counted on a night-to-night basis because of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan.
Rudy Gay, F, SAC1/28/2015 10:01:00 PM
Description: Kings small forward Rudy Gay scored 22 points versus the Raptors on Wednesday.
Insight: Gay was 8-of-17 from the field and hit two 3-pointers. He also had three assists and three rebounds. Gay is a decent fantasy option as he is averaging over 20 ppg and nearly 6.0 rpg and 4.0 apg.
Greivis Vasquez, G, TOR1/28/2015 9:59:00 PM
Description: Toronto has one of the best backcourts in the league in Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, but it was Greivis Vasquez and Louis Williams leading the way on Wednesday.

Anthony Davis, PF, NOP1/28/2015 9:56:00 PM
Description: Pelicans forward Anthony Davis went to the locker room with a leg injury during the third quarter on Wednesday.
Insight: It did not look good as Davis could not put much weight on his leg. He needed to be helped to the locker room. Stay tuned for updates.
Nene , PF/C, WAS1/28/2015 9:48:00 PM
Description: Wizards power forward Nene will not play versus the Suns on Wednesday.
Insight: Nene is dealing with several foot injuries. Kris Humphries will start and is worth a look in standard leagues.
Cole Aldrich, C, NYK1/28/2015 9:47:00 PM
Description: Cole Aldrich left Wednesday's game versus the Thunder with a bruise on his left shin.
Insight: We aren't sure when Aldrich suffered the injury, but he will not return. He had no points, a rebound and an assist in seven minutes before leaving.
Kevin Love, F, CLE1/28/2015 9:31:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love scored 10 points and grabbed 12 rebounds versus the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Insight: When Kyrie Irving takes 36 shots and scores 55 points, there aren't many other opportunities to go around, but Love did only shoot 3-for-15 from the field. Hopefully he can shoot better on Friday, which might end up being another game without LeBron James.
LaMarcus Aldridge, F, PORHot1/28/2015 9:29:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge scored 38 points but it wasn't enough versus the LeBron James-less Cavaliers.
Insight: That's because Kyrie Irving dropped 55 points, nailing 11 3-pointers. Aldridge may have been overshadowed, but he was stellar himself, going 13-of-23 with 11 rebounds. He also was 10-for-10 at the line.
Kyrie Irving, G, CLE1/28/2015 9:28:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving had a career-night versus the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Insight: Irving scored 55 points, hitting an incredible 11-of-19 from the 3-point line. He was 17-for-36 from the field overall. We always say Irving's fantasy value rises when LeBron James doesn't play, but who was expecting this?
Michael Carter-Williams, G, PHI1/28/2015 9:25:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams recorded a double-double versus the Pistons on Wednesday.
Insight: Carter-Williams had 14 points and 10 assists. He nearly had a triple-double as he had nine rebounds. Carter-Williams shot 50 percent from the floor and hit 1-of-2 from the 3-point line.
Greg Monroe, PF, DET1/28/2015 9:23:00 PM
Description: Pistons forward Greg Monroe had a game-high 20 points versus the 76ers.
Insight: Unfortunately, that didn't help Detroit avoid an embarrassing, 89-69, loss to Philadelphia. Monroe recorded a double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds, going 8-of-15 from the field.
Robert Covington, F, PHI1/28/2015 9:22:00 PM
Description: 76ers forward Robert Covington led the team with 19 points, hitting four 3-pointers on Wednesday.

Kevin Martin, G, MIN1/28/2015 7:02:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves shooting guard Kevin Martin will play on Wednesday versus the Celtics.
Insight: It will be Martin's first game since November. He will probably see limited minutes on Wednesday, but Martin should be owned in all standard leagues.
Amare Stoudemire, F, NYK1/28/2015 7:00:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire will not play this week due to wrist and ankle injuries according to Newsday.
Insight: Stoudemire is not expected to play until next week, so he will miss Wednesday and Thursday's games. Stoudemire misses so many games, it is hard to count on him in fantasy.
Kobe Bryant, G, LAL1/28/2015 6:58:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant had surgery on Wednesday to repair his right rotator cuff and is expected to miss the next nine months according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: This puts Bryant on pace to return around the beginning of November which is a longer recovery time than originally anticipated. Therefore, there is a chance he misses the beginning of next season.
LeBron James, F, CLEHot1/28/2015 6:56:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward LeBron James will not play on Wednesday and is listed as doubtful for Friday.
Insight: James has a sore wrist due to a hard fall from Tuesday's game. He played through the injury on Tuesday, but the team will rest him on Wednesday. This raises Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love's fantasy values for the night.
Carmelo Anthony, F, NYK1/28/2015 6:54:00 PM
Description: Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony will play on Wednesday.
Insight: Anthony missed Saturday's game to rest, but he will be in the lineup versus the Thunder. The knee seems to be holding up for now, but Anthony will routinely miss games to rest.
Jose Calderon, G, NYK1/28/2015 6:53:00 PM
Description: Knicks point guard Jose Calderon will play versus the Thunder on Wednesday.
Insight: Calderon will start along with shooting guard Langston Galloway. It is not recommended to use Calderon in daily leagues on Wednesday because he has a tough matchup against Russell Westbrook.
Dwight Howard, C, HOU1/28/2015 6:51:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is doubtful versus the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Insight: Coach Kevin McHale told ESPN Dallas that he would be "shocked" if Howard plays. With Howard out, Terrence Jones has a chance for more minutes in his first game back from his injury.
Nicolas Batum, F, POR1/28/2015 6:03:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum is a game-time decision on Wednesday versus the Cavaliers.
Insight: Batum was questionable on Monday in a game that was postponed due to weather. If does not play, there are several player who will fill in, so none of them are fantasy worthy.
LeBron James, F, CLEHot1/28/2015 6:01:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward LeBron James is a game-time decision on Wednesday.
Insight: James has a sore wrist from a hard fall he took on Tuesday. He continued to play on Tuesday, so we would be surprised if he doesn't play on Wednesday.
John Wall, G, WAS1/28/2015 5:41:00 PM
Description: Wizards guard John Wall is listed as questionable on Wednesday.
Insight: All signs point to Wall playing, but it is possible the Wizards will rest him again. He was supposed to play with a minutes limit on Tuesday, but he ended up not playing. Wall is dealing with a sore ankle, an Achilles injury and migraines.
Michael Carter-Williams, G, PHI1/28/2015 5:39:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams will start on Wednesday versus the Pistons.
Insight: Carter-Williams is felling sick, but he will play. His return sends Larry Drew II back to the bench. Carter-Williams should have plenty of opportunities with no Tony Wroten in the lineup.
Paul Pierce, F, WAS1/28/2015 5:28:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce will play on Wednesday against the Suns.
Insight: Pierce rested Tuesday, so he is expected to be back to his normal 28-30 minutes on Wednesday. Pierce could also see more opportunities with the chance John Wall also on the injury list.
Kevin Martin, G, MIN1/28/2015 2:33:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves shooting guard Kevin Martin (wrist surgery) is expected to play Wednesday against the Celtics.
Insight: He is listed as questionable, so there is no guarantee, but Martin is expected to give it a go. He should eventually regain his starting role, which would push Andrew Wiggins to small forward.
Kevin Durant, F, OKC1/28/2015 12:40:00 PM
Description: Thunder small forward Kevin Durant (toe) will not play Wednesday against the Knicks.
Insight: This will be the second consecutive game Durant is sidelined for. While he is still considered day-today, owners cannot be happy that he is out yet again.
Wayne Ellington, G, LAL1/28/2015 9:32:00 AM
Description: Laker swingman Wayne Ellington scored a team-high 28 points during Tuesday's loss against the Wizards.
Insight: It was also a season-high for Ellington, who went 12-of-20 from the floor, 1-of-1 from the line, and 3-of-9 from downtown. He also had three assists, three rebounds, three steals, and two turnovers. Ellington will continue to start at shooting guard.
John Wall, G, WAS1/28/2015 9:29:00 AM
Description: Wizards guard John Wall nearly recorded a triple-double during Tuesday's victory over the Lakers.
Insight: He almost did not suit up with an Achilles injury, but Wall went 8-of-12 from the field and 5-of-12 from the line for 21 points, 13 assists, nine boards, three steals, and four turnovers. He is a top 25 option in standard leagues.
David Lee, PF, GSW1/28/2015 9:27:00 AM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee had his best game of the season on Tuesday night.
Insight: He came off the bench and went 10-of-17 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line for 24 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and zero turnovers. However, Lee is still much of an option at this point in time.
Klay Thompson, G, GSWHot1/28/2015 9:25:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored a team-high 30 points during Tueday's overtime loss against the Bulls.
Insight: He went 13-of-27 from the field, 4-of-10 from deep, and 0-of-1 fromt he line. Thompson also had 10 boards, two assists, one steal, and four turnovers. He is a borderline top five option in standard leagues.
Joakim Noah, C, CHI1/28/2015 9:22:00 AM
Description: Bulls center Joakim Noah posted a big line Tuesday night.
Insight: Owners have been waiting for this, as Noah went 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line for 18 points, 15 rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two turnovers. Hopefully he is now fully healthy, and can continue to produce these type of numbers.
Derrick Rose, G, CHI1/28/2015 9:21:00 AM
Description: Bulls guard Derrick Rose scored 30 points, but also had 11 turnovers during Tuesday's overtime win against the Warriors.
Insight: Rose went 13-of-33 from the floor, 4-of-12 from downtown, and somehow did not attempt a free throw. He also had seven rebounds, one assist, and one block in 43 minutes of action.
Marc Gasol, C, MEM1/27/2015 10:53:00 PM
Description: Memphis center Marc Gasol had 15 points in the, 109-90, victory over the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Insight: Gasol was 7-of-13 from the field with six assists and four rebounds. Gasol is having a great season, shooting over 50 percent with just about 19.0 ppg and 8.0 rpg averages.
Chandler Parsons, F, DAL1/27/2015 10:52:00 PM
Description: Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons hit three 3-pointers and was 7-of-11 from the field as he led Dallas with 19 points on Tuesday.
Insight: Monta Ellis also had 19 points, but it wasn't nearly enough as Dallas lost to Memphis, 109-90. Parsons had three assists and two rebounds in addition to his 19 points. Parsons is averaging over 15 ppg.
Zach Randolph, F, MEM1/27/2015 10:50:00 PM
Description: Grizzlies power forward Zach Randolph recorded his 10th straight double-double on Tuesday.
Insight: Randolph had 22 points, going 10-of-15 from the field, and 10 rebounds. He also had two assists. Randolph is about the surest thing there is in daily fantasy basketball. Since returning from his injury, Randolph has been averaging 19.3 ppg and 13.4 rpg, but in season-long leagues, we still advise to sell high on Randolph.
John Wall, G, WAS1/27/2015 10:32:00 PM
Description: Wizards guard John Wall is starting versus the Lakers on Tuesday.
Insight: The Wizards took the "game-time decision" tag very literally as the team did not announce Wall would be playing until about tip off. There is virtually no time to put Wall back in the lineup if owners took the conversative approach. Hopefully, you left him in the lineup.
Andre Drummond, C, DET1/27/2015 10:11:00 PM
Description: Pistons center Andre Drummond blocked a career-high six shots on Tuesday.
Insight: Drummond added 12 points and 17 rebounds in what was a massive fantasy night. He did shoot just 6-of-17 from the field and 0-for-4 at the line, but fantasy owners will take the totals in the points, rebounds and blocks categories.
Mario Chalmers, G, MIA1/27/2015 10:05:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Mario Chalmers was very efficient on Tuesday night.
Insight: He went 6-of-9 from the field and 8-of-12 from the field for 21 points, eight assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer, one block, and one turnover. Chalmers is ranked outside the top 100 in standard leagues.
Hassan Whiteside, C, MIA1/27/2015 10:03:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside posted an impressive double-double during Tuesday's loss against the Bucks.
Insight: He had 16 points and 16 boards, and shot 6-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Whiteside's value is slightly limited, due to him not being a full-time starter, but he is still worth owning in all leagues.
Greg Monroe, PF, DET1/27/2015 10:02:00 PM
Description: Pistons forward Greg Monroe had 17 points and 12 rebounds versus the Cavaliers on Tuesday.
Insight: That is Monroe's 12th double-double this month and 21st this season. Monroe is averaging 15.1 ppg and 10.2 rpg this season.
Brandon Knight, G, MIL1/27/2015 10:01:00 PM
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight went just 5-of-13 from the field, but managed 17 points during Tuesday's win over the Heat.
Insight: He went 4-of-4 from the line and hit three 3-pointers. Knight also had six assists, two rebounds, three steals, and four turnovers. He is a borderline top 40 option in standard leagues.
Kyrie Irving, G, CLE1/27/2015 9:57:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving hit six 3-pointers in Cleveland's seventh straight victory as they defeated Detroit, 103-95, on Tuesday.

D.J. Augustin, G, DET1/27/2015 9:56:00 PM
Description: Pistons point guard D.J. Augustin just missed a double-double on Tuesday versus the Cavaliers.
Insight: Augustin followed up his 35-point line from Sunday with 19 points and nine assists on Tuesday. He started slow but hit three 3-pointers in the second half. He was 8-of-15 from the field overall with four rebounds and two steals. Pick Augustin up if he is still available.
LeBron James, F, CLEHot1/27/2015 9:54:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward LeBron James scored 32 points in the, 103-95, victory over the Pistons on Tuesday.
Insight: That was good enough to lead Cleveland to its seventh straight victory. James was 11-of-24 from the field with seven assists, six rebounds and a steal. James was 10-of-11 from the free-throw line as well.
Rodney Stuckey, G, IND1/27/2015 9:32:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey had a nice line during Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.
Insight: Stuckey went 8-of-16 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line for 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists, and three turnovers. The 22 points were a team-high.

Paul Pierce, F, WAS1/27/2015 9:14:00 PM
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce (toe) will not play Tuesday against the Lakers.
Insight: Otto Porter will likely start, with Rasual Butler and Martell Webster looking at a bump in playing time. Consider Pierce day-to-day.
Dwyane Wade, G, MIA1/27/2015 9:13:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade left Tuesday's game with a right hamstring strain according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Wade has been dealing with these hamstring problems for a long time now, so owners should not be surprised by the news. This is a big problem for the Heat, who do not have a true backup shooting guard. Wade had 12 points, four assists, two steals and a rebound before his departure.
Jimmy Butler, G/F, CHI1/27/2015 9:12:00 PM
Description: Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler (illness) will not play on Tuesday night.
Insight: Look for Kirk Hinrich to get the start, and simply consider Butler day-to-day.
Ersan Ilyasova, F, MIL1/27/2015 9:01:00 PM
Description: Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova left Tuesday's game with a sore right groin and will not return according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Insight: Not big news here based on Ilyasova's injury history. He had four points and a rebound in 10 minutes before his departure.
Mike Conley, G, MEM1/27/2015 8:32:00 PM
Description: Grizzlies guard Mike Conley will dress on Tuesday but it is unlikely he will play according to FOX Sports.
Insight: Conley should remain on the fantasy bench Tuesday unless owners have no other option. Conley is only going to be used in an emergency for the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
Hassan Whiteside, C, MIA1/27/2015 6:38:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside is going to start on Tuesday versus the Bucks.
Insight: Whiteside had a massive game on Sunday where he had 14 points, 13 rebounds and a franchise record 12 blocks, so the Heat are riding the hot hand. He has another favorable matchup versus the Bucks on Tuesday.
Luol Deng, F, MIA1/27/2015 6:04:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng will miss Tuesday's game a sore left calf.
Insight: Danny Granger will likely start, with James Ennis seeing an increased role as well. Consider Deng day-to-day.
George Hill, G, IND1/27/2015 4:21:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard George Hill will be on a minutes limit for the foreseeable future.
Insight: He will likely top out around 20 minutes per game, but even with that, Hill is still worth owning in all leagues. He will be the starting point guard, and will eventually get the restriction lifted.
Nicolas Batum, F, POR1/27/2015 4:17:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum said that he is mostly pain-free, after putting up some shots in Tuesday's practice.
Insight: He is still questionable for Wednesday's game, but Batum is trending in the right direction. Stay tuned.
Nick Young, G/F, LAL1/27/2015 3:49:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young sprained his right ankle in practice Monday and has been downgraded to out for Tuesday against Washington.
Insight: After posting 17 points Friday night, Young looked like he didn't want to be out there on Sunday going 0-for 2 with three turnovers in eight minutes. Wayne Ellington and Wes Johnson will see an increase in fantasy value.
Mike Dunleavy, G/F, CHI1/27/2015 2:45:00 PM
Description: Bulls small forward Mike Dunleavy (sprained right ankle) will miss Tuesday's game against Golden State
Insight: Dunleavy hasn't played since the end of December. Tony Snell got the start Friday night and Sunday but has yet to show us much.
Tony Allen, G, MEM1/27/2015 1:41:00 PM
Description: Memphis guard/forward Tony Allen (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Dallas.
Insight: Allen's value is limited even more by the recent acquisition of Jeff Green than the ankle. At this point even when healthy he has little fantasy value.
Chris Andersen, F/C, MIA1/27/2015 1:38:00 PM
Description: Heat center Chris Andersen is questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee while dealing with a sore calf.
Insight: He's averaging just 5.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg so has little fantasy value, particular with how well Hassan Whiteside has been playing in the post.
Luol Deng, F, MIA1/27/2015 1:36:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Luol Deng is doubtful for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee due to a sore left calf.
Insight: Deng missed the morning shootaround and will be a game-time decision at best. Too bad as he's played well in his last two games, including a 15-point, 10 rebound game versus Chicago on Sunday. Danny Granger would see more time if Deng is a no-go.
John Henson, C, MIL1/27/2015 1:33:00 PM
Description: Bucks PF/C John Henson injured an ankle in Sunday's game, but is probable for Tuesday's game against Miami.
Insight: Coach Jason Kidd said he could have returned. Even when healthy, Henson hasn't been getting the minutes (under 16) needed to help fantasy owners. He's averaging 5.9 ppg and 3.8 rpg.
Brandon Jennings, G, DET1/27/2015 1:31:00 PM
Description: Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings had his left Achilles surgery Monday and will miss the remainder of the season.
Insight: D.J Augustin is the best fantasy add option and he proved it with a 35-point, four-rebound, eight-assist Sunday night against Toronto. But if you didn't already pick him up it's probably too late.
Brendan Haywood, C, CLE1/27/2015 1:27:00 PM
Description: Cavs backup center Brendan Haywood is questionable for Tuesday's game against Detroit due to a swollen left knee.
Insight: Haywood has zero fantasy value and can be ignored.
C.J. Miles, G, IND1/27/2015 1:23:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard C.J. Miles did not play on Sunday and is expected to miss Tuesday as well.
Insight: Miles (12.4 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.3 apg) is dealing with a left groin strain. Rodney Stuckey will likely start with C.J. Watson also seeing more minutes.
Matt Barnes, SF, LAC1/27/2015 10:12:00 AM
Description: Clippers forward Matt Barnes suffered an abdominal strain in the fourth quarter of Monday's game against Denver.
Insight: Call him questionable for Wednesday until we hear more news. Barnes' fantasy value is limited (9.8 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.3 apg), but his absence would likely end up in the Clippers playing more three guard offense with Jamal Crawford seeing an increase in playing time and shot opportunities.
Mo Williams, PG, MIN1/27/2015 9:07:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves guard Mo Williams is dealing with a hip injury from Sunday and it may have been the cause of his 1-of-10 Monday night.
Insight: Consider Williams questionable for Wednesday. Zach LaVine would be a fantasy option if Willams can't play.
Mike Conley, G, MEM1/27/2015 9:04:00 AM
Description: Grizzlies guard Mike Conley sprained his left wrist during the Monday night game, but played through it.
Insight: It would explain his poor shooting and five-point night. Consider him questionable for Tuesday in Dallas. Beno Udrih would be the play if Conley sits.
Evan Turner, G/F, BOS1/27/2015 9:00:00 AM
Description: Celtics guard Evan Turner left the Monday night game for a time after re-injuring his thumb.
Insight: He played just 21 minutes, scoring nine points with three rebounds and four assists. X-rays were negative, but his Wednesday status is to be determined. He's been a solid fantasy option since become the Celtics starting point guard.
Dante Exum, G, UTA1/27/2015 8:51:00 AM
Description: Jazz guard Dante Exum played 25 minutes without scoring a point.
Insight: Exum likely disappointed fantasy owners after posting 15 and 13 points in his previous two games. But he's a rookie and inconsistency is what rookies do. Trey Burke was the leader of the Jazz backcourt Monday night.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTAHot1/27/2015 8:47:00 AM
Description: Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward hit 4-of-5 three-pointers on the way to a 26-point night against Boston.
Insight: Hayward added three assists, six rebounds, three steals and two blocks and only turned the ball over one time. He's a box score filler and an underrated fantasy option.
Ty Lawson, G, DENHot1/27/2015 8:41:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson had 19 points and 11 assists in the loss to the Clippers on Monday.
Insight: That's a second straight solid game since the off-the-court incident. Perhaps he's concentrating on his game to take his mind off the DUI issue. Keep starting him.
Blake Griffin, F, LAC1/27/2015 8:36:00 AM
Description: Clipper power forward Blake Griffin salvaged a bad shooting night after starting 1-of-8, to score 14 points with nine rebounds and 10 assists.
Insight: Griffin was 6-of-17 from the field. It's the third time this season he posted double-digit assists as he came very close to his first triple-double of the season. He's still a fantasy stud, though owners would like to see more rebounding. His 7.6 rebounds per game is the lowest of his career.
Jamal Crawford, G, LAC1/27/2015 8:25:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford came off the bench and scored 19 points of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to fuel a Clippers come-from-behind win over Denver.
Insight: Crawford added four rebounds, three assists and two steals. The sixth man could always score, he just doesn't usually help in any other areas.
Serge Ibaka, F, OKC1/26/2015 11:20:00 PM
Description: Oklahoma City power forward Serge Ibaka pulled down an impressive 19 rebounds during Monday's victory over the Timberwolves.
Insight: He had 13 points as well to complete a double-double. Ibaka also finished with two steals, two blocks, one 3-pointer, and three turnovers. He is a top-40 player in standard leagues.
Thaddeus Young, F, MIN1/26/2015 11:18:00 PM
Description: Minnesota forward Thaddeus Young recorded 22 points and eight rebounds during Monday's loss against the Thunder.
Insight: This was Young's second consecutive 20-point outing. He went 8-of-20 from the floor and 6-of-6 from the line, and also chipped in thee assists, two steals, and three turnovers.
Russell Westbrook, G, OKC1/26/2015 11:18:00 PM
Description: Owners were hoping to get more out of Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, with Kevin Durant out on Monday night.
Insight: He did not have a bad game, as he had 18 points, five assists, four rebounds , one steal, and four turnovers. However, there was potential for much more of a dynamic line.
Gorgui Dieng, C, MIN1/26/2015 11:17:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves center Gorgui Dieng grabbed 18 rebounds in a loss Monday versus Oklahoma City.
Insight: The good news for fantasy owners is that Dieng continues to start even with Nikola Pekovic back with the starters as well. Dieng also had six points, two assists, three blocks, one steal, and two turnovers in 36 minutes of action. He is still worthy of a roster spot.
Marc Gasol, C, MEM1/26/2015 11:15:00 PM
Description: Memphis center Marc Gasol shot only 5-of-13 from the field on Tuesday, but still finished with a double-double in a win over Orlando.
Insight: Gasol went 6-of-7 from the line, which helped him get to 16 points on the night. He also had 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block, and three turnovers.
Zach Randolph, F, MEM1/26/2015 11:13:00 PM
Description: Grizzlies power forward Zach Randolph recorded a double-double with six assists on Monday night.
Insight: He had 24 points and 10 boards in a win over the Magic. Randolph went 8-of-13 from the floor and 8-of-8 from the line, and also had one steal, one block, and three turnovers to complete is productive evening.
