• Tyrone Wallace
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have waived Tyrone Wallace.

    With the Hawks finally at full health, the versatile Wallace is the odd man out. He appeared in 14 games for the Hawks this year averaging 2.9 points in 11.5 minutes, shooting a dreadful 31.8 percent from the field although it is hard to get into a rhythm with playing time as inconsistent as it was. We wouldn't be surprised if he latched on with another NBA team at some point this season but he shouldn't make any noise in fantasy.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn notched his fifth-straight double digit scoring effort with 10 points in Saturday's win over the Cavs, chipping in five rebounds, four assists and three steals.

    Dunn's minutes have crept up a bit in the month of January and he has responded by averaging nearly two steals a game to go along with respectable countable numbers. The low scoring output is ok in this one as he made four of the six shots that he attempted, providing an semi-efficient game as he made all two of his shots from the charity stripe.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James scored 29 points on Saturday to pass Kobe Bryant for third place on the NBA's all-time scoring list.

    James added eight assists and seven rebounds on this historic night but was unable to get the win as the Lakers lost 108-91 to the Sixers. LeBron will continue to chug along with top-10 value ROS and is now only behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone on the all-time scoring list.

  • Tomas Satoransky
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Tomas Satoransky scored 19 points, on 8-of-11 shooting, in Saturday's win over the Cavs, chipping in six rebounds, six assists and three steals.

    After failing to score in double digits in the past five games, Satoransky woke up and dropped 19 in this one. This is his highest scoring output this month and it was paired well with an all-around efficient game, not to mention the three steals. With so many backcourt options it is hard to trust him on a night-to-night basis but this one reminds fantasy owners of what he is capable of producing.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma flopped on Saturday with four points (2-of-6 from the field) and five rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench.

    Kuzma posted a dud and his fantasy value is tied heavily to his scoring. He's outside the top-220 the past month with 14.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 threes per game. He's a late-round value at his best and is worth trying to sell high since his name value may be greater than his fantasy value.

  • Thaddeus Young
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Thaddeus Young scored 11 points in Saturday's win over the Cavs, chipping in three rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block in 35 minutes of game play.

    With both teammates Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. injured, Young is not only getting the start but also playing major minutes in their absences. He is definitely worth a look in the short-term as he is a nice source of defensive statistics while not fantasy owners in any particular area.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons flourished on Saturday with 28 points (12-of-15 shooting), 10 rebounds, eight assists and four steals in a 108-91 victory over the Lakers.

    LeBron James passed Kobe Bryant on the career scoring list, but Ben Simmons ruined his night and dominated on both ends of the court in an impressive win for a short-handed Sixers team. Simmons was already on a roll with Joel Embiid out and will be even better with Josh Richardson also sidelined. Ben Simmons owners will enjoy the next few weeks.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris scored a team-high 29 points while shooting 10-of-20 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line to go with eight rebounds and three triples on Saturday.

    Harris is inside the top-50 on the season as an efficient scorer averaging 19.5 points per game while shooting .478 from the field and .801 from the line. He was an 86 percent free throw shooter last season and is shooting .838 the past month so he's trending up in that area too.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle swiped five steals on Saturday and added six points, one block and two triples in 36 minutes.

    If you're rostering Thybulle, it is for defensive stats like this. Thybulle has increased value in the short-term with Josh Richardson and Joel Embiid sidelined and he's averaging 2.6 steals and 1.6 blocks in 30.8 minutes the past seven games.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love double-doubled in Saturday's 106-118 loss to the Bulls, logging 20 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and four three-pointers.

    Love has increased his scoring output five points per game since the start of the month while also logging three double-doubles. Regardless of how the Cavs are doing in real life, Love is providing sixth-round value for fantasy owners as he continues to provide value in points, rebounds, threes, and FT percentage.

  • Cedi Osman
    SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Cedi Osman scored 18 points in Saturday's loss to the Bulls, chipping in one rebound, six assists, two steals and two three-pointers.

    Osman got underneath the skin of the Bulls defenders as he was able to slither his way around the court and instigate two technical fouls in his favor. Gamesmanship aside, Osman continues to play well and has shown a consistent knack of scoring the ball and draining threes. He is not a must-own player, but is worthy of being owned at the end of the bench in most leagues.
