• DeMarre Carroll
    F, Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll was productive in 20 minutes off the Nets' bench on Friday, delivering 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds and three treys.

    It's not a lot to write home about this December, but Carroll has mustered enough value to be worth rostering in 14-team leagues or deeper as a 3-point shooting specialist (2.2 over last five).

  • Wesley Matthews
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Mathews headed to the locker room in Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Matthews is a starting placeholder right now, but guys like Donte DinVincenzo are the ones holding more value. If Matthews is unable to return, expect DiVincenzo, Pat Connaughton and Kyle Korver to pick up the slack.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle had another good stat line on Tuesday with 24 points (10-of-19 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes in a 92-97 road loss to the Hornets.

    Randle hasn't been as bad as he was to begin the season lately. However, he still has a tough time providing even mid-round value, which is rare for a 20-point, 10-rebound player. If his percentages are wearing on your team, it might be wise to try to sell him off to someone that doesn't look past points, rebounds and assists. Elfrid Payton also contributed significantly to the Knicks' effort with 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 33 minutes.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson blocked five shots, pulled down 10 rebounds and hit both of his field goals in 26 minutes off the bench vs. the Hornets on Tuesday.

    Robinson swatted a few shots down the stretch, helping to keep the game close, but the Knicks couldn’t quite catch the Hornets. While it's been frustrating to watch the Knicks limit Robinson's role this season, he's still a valuable fantasy player that can't be dropped. His blocks and field goal percentage are elite, and there always the chance he makes the jump from middle-round value to early-round value like he did last season.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. showed up in the box score on Tuesday with seven points on 3-of-6 shooting, three rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes in a loss to the Hornets.

    This is the most Smith has played in nearly two months. And while the results weren't anything special, it could be the start of a regular role in the rotation once again now that he's looking healthier. Also encouraging for those with their eye on Smith is the fact that Frank Ntilikina played for just three minutes in this game.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol is dealing with hamstring tightness and has been ruled out for the remainder of Tuesday's game.

    Gasol is fragile, especially given his age. The wear and tear adds up and aches and pains such as this are par for the course. He was able to log 16 minutes in this one and post 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting with two 3s, two blocks, one rebound and one assist. Serge Ibaka will feast on those center minutes and return a strong game.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol headed to the locker room in Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Gasol has been solid since returning from his previous injury. If he's unable to return, Serge Ibaka is an easy slot-in for the Raptors at center.

  • Chandler Hutchison

    Chandler Hutchison (right shoulder and left hip soreness) is probable to face the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Hutchison is too banged up to be relied upon. Look elsewhere for help from the FA pool.

  • Denzel Valentine
    SF, Chicago Bulls

    Denzel Valentine (right hip strain) is probable to face the Pacers on Wednesday.

    While the Bulls are all pretty banged up, Valentine was able to pop off for a season-high 16 points on Monday. He's stepping up and should be on watch lists for managers playing in 14-team leagues or deeper.

  • Tomas Satoransky
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Tomas Satoranksy (left ankle soreness) is probable to play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Sato was probable coming into Monday's game and was able to play, so it's a safe-ish assumption that he will be able to do it again.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine (right ankle sprain, right knee discomfort) is probable to play for the Bulls on Wednesday.

    The Bulls are aching for offense with Lauri Markkanen on the sidelines and have been heavily reliant on LaVine for his scoring punch. He's slightly banged up and if he does manage to play, a maintenance rest day could be in the cards.
