• John Wall
    G, Washington Wizards

    John Wall scored 30 points on 9-of-24 shooting (5-of-12 3PTs, 7-of-10 FTs) with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two blocks over 41 minutes in the Wizards' 125-118 win over the Clippers on Tuesday.

    The Wizards were down by 24 points and Twitter was burying them yet again, only to see them rally and win at home. Wall has been at the center of the drama and looks like the problem in Washington, and since he's the untradeable one he has to figure it out if they're going to right the ship. Everybody in this is expendable from a team perspective but as long as Wall is healthy and not doing anything too crazy, he should be an early round value.

  • Danilo Gallinari
    SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Danilo Gallinari finished with 14 points, four rebounds, and one steal on 3-of-8 shooting but was able to nail all eight of his attempts at the foul line.

    Gallo didn't have a great game but was able to minimize the damage to fantasy rosters by going perfect at the foul line (8-of-8). He and the Thunder will look to rebound on Friday as they take on the Sixers.

  • Darius Garland
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Darius Garland was back to underwhelming on Tuesday with six points (3-for-10 FGs), three rebounds, two assists and three steals in 28 minutes in a road loss to the Sixers.

    Garland had strung together two six-assist, double digit scoring games prior to this one. Let this serve as the reminder that he's going to need more time before he starts consistently putting up strong stat lines. 19-year-old point guards typically need more seasoning than he's had so far. Cedi Osman might need a bit more too, as he went for just four points and not much else in 32 minutes on Tuesday. He's a 3-point streamer at this point.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside will play and start on Tuesday vs. the Kings despite dealing with a right foot sprain.

    Whiteside is the only big man with experience who is healthy for the Blazers and should be in line for another great performance. He will be matched up against Richaun Holmes, Dewayne Dedmon and Harry Giles.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. (hip) returned after a first-half fall and looked good in the second half of Tuesday's close loss to the Sixers.

    Porter ended up playing 16 minutes and putting up four points, two boards and one assist. He's hovering around 19 minutes per game right now, but he's shown the flashes the Cavs expected out of him from time to time. He's definitely a player to watch in the second half of the season as Cleveland should increase the minutes for their young players.

  • Rodney Hood
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Rodney Hood (back spasms) might not play on Tuesday vs. the Kings despite previously being listed as probable.

    This news comes as a surprise as he was previously listed as probable. The news isn't official so continue to monitor as we get closer to tip-off. It does seem unlikely that he will take the floor after all. If he is unable to play, look for Kent Bazemore, Anfernee Simons and Mario Hezonja to pick up additional minutes

  • Chris Paul
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Chris Paul scored seven points and added five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and three turnovers on 2-of-7 shooting while he missed one of his four free throw attempts.

    Paul only saw 25 minutes in this contest as the Thunder were blown out by the Pacers on Tuesday. It was a disappointing night for everyone on the Thunder. They will look to get back on track Friday as they take on the Sixers.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell has returned to the Pistons' bench on Tuesday and reportedly looks "OK".

    Snell headed to the locker room for a brief period during the third quarter but has already returned to the bench. Continue to monitor for updates but it appears that he is good to re-enter the ball game.

    Snell has started all 11 games for the Pistons and has averaged just over 29 minutes per game. Continue to check for updates.

  • Malik Beasley
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Malik Beasley will be forced to miss Tuesday's matchup vs. the Hawks due to an illness.

    Beasley was questionable heading into the matchup but was unable to shake his illness. His next opportunity to take the court will come on Thursday.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Dewayne Dedmon will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Blazers despite dealing with a knee injury.

    Dedmon is in a very crowded rotation in Sacramento despite Marvin Bagley's injury. He is currently only seeing 17.1 minutes per game.
