3 days agoDallas Mavericks power forward/center Kristaps Porzingis got the start in the middle with Dwight Powell (Achilles) out as he shifted from the power forward slot. Porzingis scored 20 points on an improved 6-for-11 shooting overall and added five rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 25 minutes of action. The Zinger bounced back after shooting 4-for-17 from the floor in his return to the lineup on Tuesday this week, so this was a nice turnaround for the Unicorn. Owners can hope he will stay on the court going forward as he has been better than expected this season when he does suit up.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoLos Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard put up 14 points, 12 rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block in a 128-113 win over the Brooklyn Nets. Howard was much more active offensively than in his last two contests and continued to rebound the ball effectively. The 34-year-old is playing the best basketball of the season in January, with averages of 9.6 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game on 65.2 percent shooting from the field. Howard will look to keep this up on Saturday in a tough matchup against the 76ers.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoLos Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis posted 16 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one triple, one steal, and one block in a 128-113 win over the Brooklyn Nets. The Lakers cruised to this win with relative ease, leading to just nine shots for Davis. Still, it's hard to find any faults with the big man's game nowadays, as he's upped his steal and block averages from December and has shot 93.9 percent from the charity stripe, a monthly high for this season. Owners can likely count on more than nine shots in Davis' next matchup on Saturday against the 29-17 76ers, in what should be a more competitive game.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoLos Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James recorded 27 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists, three triples, one steal, and one block in a 128-113 win over the Brooklyn Nets. It's James' 10th triple-double of the year, second to only Luka Doncic. He's amazingly still going at the age of 35, showing zero signs of decline. James has another milestone in sight, as he's just 17 points away from passing Kobe Bryant on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Owners can expect another strong fantasy performance from James on Saturday, as he goes for the scoring mark against the 76ers in Bryant's birthplace of Philadelphia.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCleveland Cavaliers power forward/center Kevin Love logged 21 points on 8-for-19 shooting during Thursday’s loss to the Washington Wizards. Love shot 3-for-9 from long range, his 17th outing this year with at least three makes from deep, but the noteworthy part of his evening was that he once again led the team in shot attempts. Even as Cleveland attempts to develop its young nucleus, Love remains an integral part of the team’s nightly plan, even as he was limited to five rebounds Thursday. Owners will want to verify his status before tip-off most nights ahead of the Trade Deadline, but a full bill of health and remaining with the Cavaliers could be the best thing for his fantasy outlook down the stretch.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCleveland Cavaliers point/shooting guard Darius Garland has seen his usage rate take a sharp uptick since after Christmas, and he followed through again during Thursday’s loss to the Washington Wizards. For owners who can look past his 4-for-17 shooting effort, Garland finished with 13 points and four assists across his team-high 38 minutes. He has now taken double-digit shot attempts in each of his last 14 games, all of which have been double-digit scoring efforts. The 19-year-old has shown immense potential in the past month and should be sought-after in most dynasty formats. He remains a perpetual high upside play in DFS due to his shot volume, with his next time on the court coming Saturday against Chicago.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCleveland Cavaliers point/shooting guard Collin Sexton recorded a team-high 29 points during Thursday’s loss to the Washington Wizards, his fourth time reaching the 25-point plateau in his last five games. Sexton shot 10-for-15 from the field, drilling both threes that he attempted and adding four rebounds, four assists and two steals to his stat line. With Cleveland’s playoff chances slim, Sexton’s continued development remains paramount for the organization over the season’s final two and a half months, which should provide ample opportunity for the second-year guard to pack the stat sheet in a similar manner to the way that he did Thursday.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoCleveland Cavaliers power forward/center Larry Nance Jr. collected his second straight double-double off the bench during Thursday’s loss to the Washington Wizards, tying his career high with 22 points in the process. Nance got more run (28 minutes) than that of starting center Tristan Thompson (21), as he shot 10-for-14 from the field, knocking down both threes that he attempted and snagging 12 rebounds, his most in an outing since Nov. 25. It’s tough to predict nights in which Nance will see extended run off the bench with both Thompson and Kevin Love healthy, but if either were to miss an outing, Nance would become an immediate top-notch DFS option.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 days agoWashington Wizards shooting guard/small forward Bradley Beal was scorching-hot from the field during Thursday’s victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, compiling a game-high 36 points on 15-for-22 shooting across just 29 minutes. He shot 4-for-8 from long range, marking his highest total of makes from deep in a single contest since Dec. 16, as he also added eight assists and two rebounds to his total. His minutes total haven’t been up to his season averages since returning, but that hasn’t slowed his scoring in the slightest. He next takes the floor Sunday against Atlanta, a team that has had immense difficulty in slowing opposing wings this season.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4 days agoOklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams has picked up a questionable designation for Friday’s contest versus the Atlanta Hawks due to an ankle sprain. Adams has missed two of the team’s previous four outings and another absence would pave the way for Nerlens Noel to remain among the starting five, making him a high upside DFS play. The injury has dipped Adams’ season averages below a double-double for the year, yet he remains on pace to set a new career high with 9.7 boards per contest. Check back prior to tip-off Friday to get the final word on his status.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

4 days agoToronto Raptors point guard/small forward Patrick McCaw has been ruled out for Friday’s game against the New York Knicks due to a fractured nose that he sustained Wednesday versus Philadelphia. McCaw had been seeing considerable run as of late, even if it failed to translate into outings that were relevant from a fantasy perspective. His absence should allow Norman Powell and Terence Davis to pick up a handful of additional minutes, while McCaw’s tentative return date has not yet been disclosed. His next chance at returning comes Sunday against San Antonio, but that would likely represent an absolute best-case scenario.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

4 days agoPhoenix Suns small/power forward Cameron Johnson has already been ruled out for Friday’s contest against the San Antonio Spurs due to a quad contusion. His absence will mark his fourth straight game out of the mix, as Mikal Bridges continues to pick up a pile of minutes, while head coach Monty Williams gets creative with rotations to make up for the loss of shooting that comes with Johnson in street clothes. Johnson has some promise moving forward, but he has reached double-digits in scoring just twice in his last 12 outings, making him a fringe option even in deeper season-long formats. His next chance at suiting up comes Sunday against Memphis.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Kellan Olson

4 days agoSacramento Kings power forward/center Marvin Bagley is not expected to return to action for Friday’s game against the Chicago Bulls due to foot soreness. With Richaun Holmes (shoulder) also expected to be out of the mix, Dewayne Dedmon is likely to continue seeing an increased role in the frontcourt. Bagley had appeared to have turned a corner in terms of minutes played before missing Wednesday’s outing, but this latest setback means that his likely next best chance to take the floor comes Monday against Minnesota.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Jason Anderson

4 days agoIndiana Pacers point/shooting guard Malcolm Brogdon has been ruled out for Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors due to a concussion that he sustained Wednesday versus Phoenix. Brogdon’s absence will pave the way for Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell to see a larger workload, although who slides into the starting five may not necessarily indicate the player likely to see a bigger role. With the absence, Brogdon will have missed nine of his team’s last 16 games. His next chance at getting back into the mix comes Sunday against Portland, but even that would mean a rapid recovery from an injury as unpredictable as a concussion.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Scott Agness

4 days agoLos Angeles Lakers power forward/center Anthony Davis will be in action Thursday against the Brooklyn Nets after having previously picked up a questionable designation due to his persistent glute injury. With JaVale McGee (illness) having previously been ruled out, Davis is likely to see a somewhat increased workload on the glass, having feasted against the Nets in his career to the tune of 12.5 boards per contest. There was no mention of any minutes limit for the All-Star candidate, so owners can feel confident deploying Davis in any variety of formats.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Ohm Youngmisuk
