Chris Paul scored 19 points on 5-of-12 shooting and managed to collect three rebounds, six assists and three steals on Wednesday.
CP3 has been playing his way into second-round value this season and doesn't show any sign of slowing down. However, the 34 year old does have an injury history, so risk-averse owners may see this as a great sell-high window.January 22, 2020, 9:25 pm
J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) is available on Wednesday.
Redick has scored double digits in back-to-back games with five threes combined, but his role may diminish with Zion Williamson (right knee surgery) returning on Wednesday. Redick's role should be watched closely over the next few games, but he's just a watch list name for now.

Dennis Schroder dropped 31 off the bench on Wednesday night, shooting 13-of-18 from the field while collecting three rebounds and nine assists.
Schroder has put together a few serviceable games now and is worth hanging onto in standard leagues. His value will spike if Chris Paul catches a case of the injury bug.January 22, 2020, 9:21 pm
Jayson Tatum left Wednesday's game in the third quarter with a right groin strain and will not return.
Groin injuries can be tricky so check back for an update on Tatum, but he is likely going to miss multiple games. Tatum finished with 23 points, seven rebounds and four assists in 26 minutes. The starters and Marcus Smart should see a boost in value while Tatum is sidelined. Semi Ojeleye can be a short-term option in deeper leagues as the likely candidate to get more minutes in Tatum's absence.

Jayson Tatum left Wednesday's game in the third quarter and headed to the locker room holding his groin.
Tatum limped directly to the locker room which is worrisome. Hopefully it isn't too serious. Tatum's value would be mostly absorbed by the starters if he misses time. Semi Ojeleye could see more minutes but would only be worth a look in deeper leagues.

Jahlil Okafor (lower back soreness) is available on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.
Okafor is returning from injury on Wednesday along with teammates Derrick Favors and Zion Williamson. The Pelicans' front court just got crowded and Jaxson Hayes, Nicolo Melli and Okafor will struggle to have standard-league value with everyone healthy. Hayes is a luxury stash and the other two players can be left on the waiver wire.

Josh Hart (left ankle) is listed as available on Wednesday.
Hart has played 30 minutes in seven out of the past eight games but only played 17 minutes in the last game with Jrue Holiday returning. The Pelicans' rotations got even more crowded with Zion Williamson returning on Wednesday. Hart is someone to watch while the Pelicans figure out their rotations, but don't hesitate to drop him in standard leagues if he plays low minutes and has a dud on Wednesday.

Derrick Rose twisted his ankle on Wednesday but remained in the game.
Rose tweaked his ankle but ran it off and stayed in the game. He appears to be fine.
