    Chris Paul scored 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and two triples in Game 4 on Monday against the Warriors.

    Paul's stat line doesn't look sexy, but he made crucial plays for the Rockets down the stretch and came up with big plays with James Harden resting. The Rockets just need him to keep the boat afloat on offense while their superstar sits and so far he's done that. The defense has regressed a bit and the shooting is down, but he's still making plays for his teammates with the correct reads.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish caught fire in a start on Friday, hitting 6-of-9 3-pointers (career-high) en route to a career-high 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting as the Hawks topped the Nets 141-118.

    Obviously, tonight's line was one of Reddish's best overall. The Hawks opted to go small vs. the Nets and he started over Bruno Fernando (nine points, nine rebounds, two steals). This could be a turning point for Reddish, who has struggled to get into a consistent flow of production throughout 2019-20. He's worth a speculative add right now.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) has been ruled out for the remainder of the game Friday vs. the Cavs.

    Once it was revealed Redick had suffered a hamstring strain, it was not surprising for him to miss the rest of this one. In addition, he could miss some time which is something the Pelicans and fantasy owners don't want to see with the playoffs on the line in both cases. The team has yet to indicate the severity to which Redick is injured just yet, but it should come sometime in the next 24 hours.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson took a hard fall in the paint attempting to get a rebound in the first quarter of the Suns' game vs. the Pistons on Friday.

    It looked like he took a shot in the ribs while in the air before hitting the floor with a loud smack. Johnson was doubled over on the court for a minute before heading to the Suns' locker room. An update on his status should be provided by the team soon.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) is doubtful to return to Friday's game.

    Well there it is. After leaving with a mystery injury, Redick had apparently injured his hamstring. There should be some update to the severity of the injury after the game.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick has left the Pelicans' bench and headed to the locker room near the end of the first quarter of their game against the Cavs on Friday evening.

    Stay tuned. He signaled to the bench due to apparent injury and left the game. He has yet to return to the Pelicans' bench.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown (knee) has officially been ruled out for Friday's contest vs. the Suns.

    Coach Dwane Casey said as much by deeming him doubtful earlier in the afternoon. Look for Brandon Knight to pick up most of the offensive slack in Brown's absence. Knight has been productive in the last couple of games, averaging 9.7 PTS and 3.7 AST over the last two weeks.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo will pick up the start for the Bucks on Friday against the Thunder with Khris Middleton (neck) out.

    DiVincenzo has been around a top-100 guy coming off the bench anyway this year, so if you have him make sure he's locked into your lineup. He should get a bump in production on offense on Friday with Middleton on the bench.

  • Hamidou Diallo
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Hamidou Diallo will start for an injured Danilo Gallinari (left ankle) on Friday evening in the Thunder's road game against the Bucks.

    Diallo has offered solid production in limited action this season, and his per-36 numbers reflect that. If he were getting those types of minutes every night, he would be sitting at 12.0 points per game and 6.4 boards per game. That said, nobody is expecting Diallo to get anywhere close to that much playing time on Friday. The Thunder are too balanced and too deep for him to carry any fantasy value.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown (knee soreness) is very unlikely to play in the Pistons' game against the Suns on Friday evening, according to coach Dwane Casey.

    This will be Brown's second straight game on the shelf. The Pistons have no reason to run guys out there if they aren't completely healthy, so this is not a shocker by any means. Brandon Knight and Svi Mykhailiuk will see more opportunities on Friday for the Pistons.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (back soreness) is available and in coach Mike Budenholzer's starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

    If he had sat this one out, it likely would have been more due to rest than anything else. He may sit some games the rest of the way because the Bucks are so far ahead in the standings and have locked up a playoff spot. Fantasy owners should be wary and alert prior to his games, especially in games against subpar opponents.
