• Dennis Smith Jr.
    G, Dallas Mavericks

    Dennis Smith Jr. scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting with five rebounds and five assists in a win over the Rockets on Wednesday.

    He had three turnovers and shot 1-of-2 from the free-throw line, so the main problems were still evident in this one. However, his efficiency was up this game and he added five defensive stats with four steals and one block. Consistently having games like this one would bring his value up, but if he continues to shoot poorly from the field and the line while turning the ball over a lot he will remain outside the top-150. J.J. Barea chipped in 13 points and 12 assists off the bench in 17 minutes. The point guards, Smith Jr., Barea, and Devin Harris, were a huge reason why the Mavs were able to beat the Rockets.

Fantasy News

  • Montrezl Harrell
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Montrezl Harrell couldn't find his shot in Wednesday's loss to the Rockets, finishing his night with just four points (2-of-12 shooting), to go with nine rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes.

    Harrell ran into the brick wall that is Clint Capela tonight, so toss this poor shooting performance away. He is one of the few players on this roster that likely won't see a significant change to his role once Paul George returns, making him a safe top-75 play moving forward.

  • Rudy Gay
    SF, San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay contributed 10 points, eight boards, three assists and a steal off the bench on Wednesday night.

    Gay has managed to sneak his way into the top-140. He is producing late-round value so he should be owned in deeper leagues and is worthy of keeping an eye on in 12-team leagues at this point.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge had 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting, four rebounds, two assists, and a block on Wednesday.

    Aldridge is providing value fitting for his ADP and owners should be perfectly content with his top-50 value so far this season.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    JaMychal Green played well in Wednesday's loss to tthe Rockets, finishing with 14 points, 14 rebounds, four triples, two steals and a block in 32 minutes.

    This could be one of Green's high watermarks for the year, as he is set to see a drop off in playing time with the return of Paul George looming. There is a chance he holds onto enough playing time to produce deep-league appeal, but don't count on it.

  • Lou Williams
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams saw a heavy workload in Wednesday's 93-102 loss to the Rockets, finishing his night with 20 points, seven rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer and three turnovers.

    Williams is seeing heavy workloads on a regular basis as the number two option in this offense. However, with Paul George's return looking like a game away, he is set to face a dramatic drop off in production. Now may be the time to see if you can trade him away as this could be the highest his value gets all season.

  • Dejounte Murray
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Dejounte Murray had a pedestrian line of 13 points, two boards, an assist, and two 3-pointers on Wednesday.

    The backcourt was a timeshare for San Antonio tonight with no guard getting more than 25 minutes of action. Murray had the best night but it wasn't much. He is currently sitting just outside the top-100 and has the chance to move up if he can earn more minutes.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard saw 41 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Rockets, finishing his night with 26 points (10-of-24 shooting) to go with 12 rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block, three triples and four turnovers.

    The 41 minute mark was a season high for Leonard, and it would probably shock nobody if he wound up sitting out tomorrow's contest in New Orleans. He's great when he plays but the load management issue looks like it will continue to be tied to Leonard for the foreseeable future.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier exploded for 33 points on 13-of-21 shooting, adding five boards, six assists, two steals and seven from deep in a 119-117 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Rozier took advantage of Dwayne Bacon's absence and tied his career-high in points. He is just outside the top-100 after tonight's game and looks like a great start if there are any injuries in the Charlotte backcourt.

  • Ben McLemore
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Ben McLemore drew the start in place of Danuel House (back) and Eric Gordon (knee surgery) on Wednesday, scoring eight points to go with five rebounds, an assist, a steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

    McLemore is set to see increased run with Eric Gordon sidelined for the next six weeks. However, he won't be the starter once Danuel House is able to return from injury. The extra run he will see also doesn't really put him on the fantasy radar either, aside from the deepest of leagues.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham received his first start of the season and ended with 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting, four assists, and four 3-pointers on Wednesday night.

    Graham got the starting nod with Bacon out and put up very respectable numbers. This year has the making of a breakout season for Graham and if he is somehow still available, he needs to be picked up immediately.
