• Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul scored 20 points on 5-of-10 shooting with six rebounds, eight assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in Monday's 119-111 win over the Hawks.

    Reports of Chris Paul's demise seem to have been exaggerated as Paul orchestrated the Rockets' offense and kept the team afloat while James Harden struggled with his shot tonight. There's been a bit more zip in his step and the yo-yo crossovers are still alive and well. Over his past five games, Paul is averaging 19.8 points, 3.4 3s, 5.6 rebounds, 10.6 assists and 1.4 steals on .441 shooting which is good for the No. 8 player in 9-cat leagues during that stretch. He's not shooting at an elite level anymore, but everything else is top notch and he's finally getting his swagger back after dealing with that hamstring injury.

  • George Hill - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill (groin soreness) and Sterling Brown (wrist sprain) will both be available to play on Friday vs. the Heat.

    Neither should be picked up even with Malcolm Brogdon out for the rest of the regular season.

  • Kenneth Faried - F/C - Houston Rockets

    Kenneth Faried (sore left knee) will be available to play on Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Outside of deeper leagues, Faried likely won't get enough run while Clint Capela is healthy to make an impart.

  • Fred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet will get another start for Kyle Lowry (sprained right ankle) on Friday vs. the Thunder.

    VanVleet almost always produces in a big way when starting and he’ll continue to do so until Lowry returns which is expected “sometime next week” according to coach Nick Nurse.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (head) will play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

    Love banged his head on Wednesday and left the game for good early in the third quarter but he has avoided any concussion symptoms so make sure he's in your lineup.

  • Joakim Noah - PF/C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (knee) is not expected to play on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Since it’s the front end of a back-to-back set for the Grizzlies, there’s no reason to push their old vets like Noah and Mike Conley. Ivan Rabb and Bruno Coboclo have a chance to step up but neither has been very consistent and it doesn’t look like Noah will be out for long.

  • Frank Ntilikina - G - New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) and Kadeem Allen (illness) will both be available to play on Friday.

    Neither is a particularly inspired play playing distributor behind Emmanuel Mudiay and both can be left on the wire.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Tyler Dorsey will get the start for Mike Conley (general soreness) on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Mike Conley continues to miss one of every back-to-back set and there’s also one next week during a four-game week for the Grizzlies. Dorsey isn’t the most attractive play though Delon Wright should have a nice game and should be added in standard leagues.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    Noah Vonleh (right ankle sprain) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    That means Mario Hezonja is once again set up for big minutes. He’s been a standard league value over the last month but with only two games next week, he’s not the best play after Sunday’s game vs. the Clippers.

  • Stephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors

    Steph Curry (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Mavs.

    This is the front end of a back-to-back so we’re not surprised Curry is getting a day off in this five-game week. He should be out there for Sunday’s game. With Shaun Livingston and Andrew Bogut also out for rest, Quinn Cook and Andre Iguodala will get more run, though neither is a long-term play.
