January 8, 2019, 9:56 pmBojan Bogdanovic - F - Indiana Pacers
Bojan Bogdanovic shot 9-for-16 from the field for 23 points with four boards, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes in a 123-115 win over the Cavs on Tuesday.
Bogdanovic had his stroke against the Cavs, as most of their opponents tend to do. He has been an offensive switch for the Pacers, carrying on from last season's breakout. He is a mid-round asset in standard leagues.
January 16, 2019, 11:08 pmKyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors
Kyle Lowry's shooting slump persisted in Wednesday's 108-117 loss to the Celtics with him going 3-for-10 from the field, ending the night with 10 points, six boards, seven assists, a triple, one steal and one blocked shot.
He did fill up the box score, so that was a bit of a consolation but Lowry has been struggling with his shot for some time now, averaging .340 from the field over his last five games. His shot will eventually come back, making this a buy-low window for him.
January 16, 2019, 11:08 pmJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen scored 20 points to go along with 24 rebounds and three blocks in a huge overtime win against the Rockets on Wednesday.
He shot 10-of-19 from the field and missed his only attempt from the free-throw line. However, that miss turned into a crucial Spencer Dinwiddie three point play to give the Nets a one point lead late in overtime. Allen took advantage of Clint Capela being sidelined with a thumb injury as he was being guarded by Gary Clark and PJ Tucker for much of this game. He also played a team-high 43 minutes and showed why he has been the highest valued fantasy player on the Nets as he is inside the top-60. He has been a top-20 value over the past two weeks and is showing his early-round potential. Also, he added James Harden to the list of superstars he blocked this season.
January 16, 2019, 11:02 pmPascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam was noticeably quiet in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics, mustering six points, seven rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes.
This is a low-end line from Siakam this season and is a good marker of what his floor looks like. That said, he's been a beast in 2018-19 and will resume his breakout campaign sooner rather than later.
January 16, 2019, 10:58 pmDeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets
DeMarre Carroll played well in an overtime win over the Rockets on Wednesday as he put up 22 points on 6-of-13 shooting.
Over the past two weeks, he has been a late-round value after having a rocky start to the season. Joe Harris, who had 17 points with four rebounds and seven assists, and Carroll were two of the five on the court to end this game; Treveon Graham, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jarrett Allen make up the remainder of the lineup. Both Harris and Carroll should be on fantasy radars in deeper leagues as they are a crucial part of the Nets' rotation and provide good value in points and 3-pointers.
January 16, 2019, 10:57 pmKawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors
Kawhi Leonard dropped one of his vintage lines on Wednesday, going 10-for-19 from the field and 11-for-11 from the line to finish the night with 33 points, four rebounds, two assists, two triples and four steals.
This is his 20th straight game where he's scored 20 or more points, the longest streak in the league this season. As long as he's not resting for maintenance, Kawhi has been money in 8/9 cat thanks to his shooting efficiency and steals.
January 16, 2019, 10:51 pmSerge Ibaka - F/C - Toronto Raptors
Serge Ibaka was active on the offensive end of the floor on Wednesday, dropping 22 points on 10-of-21 shooting and 10 rebounds.
He missed all three shot attempts from deep and did not record any defensive stats, so this is a somewhat hollow line from Ibaka. That said, the takeaway here is that he was an active participant on offense as those defensive numbers should eventually follow. He's been a reliable mid-round play all season thanks to his revitalized game.
January 16, 2019, 10:48 pmTreveon Graham - F - Brooklyn Nets
Treveon Graham had a breakout game in a crucial overtime win over the Rockets on Wednesday as he put up 21 points with five rebounds on 7-of-9 shooting.
He made three 3-pointers and had the tough task of having to guard James Harden on a number of possessions in this game. He was on the bench late in this game until Rodions Kurucs, who had 14 points and five rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting, fouled out. Graham guarded Harden on the last possession of regulation and forced him into a tough contested 3-pointer that he missed. Despite receiving minutes in the upper-20’s since Jared Dudley got hurt, Graham was not able to contribute much to the box score prior to this game. You should not pick him up just yet, but it was great to see him have a performance like this one for the Nets.
January 16, 2019, 10:28 pmEric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets
Eric Gordon is experiencing soreness in his knee and will not return for the overtime period on Wednesday.
Gordon leaves the game after having scored 20 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four triples, three rebounds, two assists and a steal. He's had a history of knee problems, so his inability to stay in the game is a concern.

January 16, 2019, 10:15 pmTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
As per Adrian Wojnarowski, Tyus Jones will be wearing a walking boot for the next several days and will be day-to-day after that.
Jones has been a good steals specialist for streaming purposes but with Derrick Rose and Jeff Teague now both healthy, there's little need to hang onto him considering he's set to miss multiple games.

January 16, 2019, 9:59 pmReggie Bullock - F - Detroit Pistons
Reggie Bullock handed out a team-high six assists in Wednesday's 120-115 OT win over the Magic and also added 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting and three triples.
Bullock has emerged as a capable passer as of late, averaging 3.6 assists per game over his last five, while also knocking down 3.0 treys per contest, making him a worthwhile hold in standard leagues right now. Reggie Jackson only managed four assists with 13 points (5-of-12 shooting) with two rebounds and two tirples.
