• Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

    Winslow put up a full line on Friday night and has been playing well even with the return of Goran Dragic, so this would be a very tough break for Winslow, the Heat and fantasy owners. It could also spell trouble for next week, with Miami starting a back-to-back that includes a trip to Oklahoma City on Monday. If Winslow can't play, we'll see more of Dragic (who might start), Rodney McGruder, Dion Waiters and Derrick Jones Jr., while James Johnson might get back into the rotation.

Fantasy News

  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan double-doubled on Sunday against the Celtics as e had 16 points and 11 assists on 8-of-18 shooting.

    The only other contribution to his stat line was two blocks. DeRozan is a key reason as to why the Spurs are in the playoffs in the Western Conference and have a chance for a top-4 seed. Patty Mills chipped in 12 points and four assists in 22 minutes.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge lit the Celtics up for 48 points and 13 rebounds on 20-of-31 shooting in a 115-96 victory on Sunday.

    He added six assists, made one triple and shot 7-of-8 from the line. Despite a slow start to the season, Aldridge has still maintained top-25 value in 9-cat formats. He is a top-15 option over the past two months, so he should be considered in that range for the fantasy playoffs and is definitely one of the most reliable big man options.

  • Elfrid Payton - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Elfrid Payton might be hitting a cold spell after his five-game triple-double streak as he had just four points, four rebounds, eight assists and five turnovers in a loss to the Rockets on Sunday.

    He shot just 2-of-8 from the field and added one steal in 31 minutes of action. Payton is a late-round value and can be labeled as an assists and steals specialist. Julius Randle also had a rough game as he had 15 points and three rebounds on 6-of-13 shooting.

  • Clint Capela - C - Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela pulled down an impressive 17 boards in 24 minutes on Sunday.

    Capela added eight points and an assist in the easy win. Capela's value is going to be solid going down the stretch with the Rockets red-hot-and-rolling.

  • Stanley Johnson - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Stanley Johnson put up 13 points with five rebounds on 6-of-8 shooting in 23 minutes in a blowout loss to the Rockets on Sunday.

    Johnson is a project that has not worked out well for the Pistons and it seems as though he will not work out for the Pelicans either. This was nothing more than a fluke performance and he can be left on the wire in all formats.

  • Eric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets

    Eric Gordon had all of this buckets come by way of three-pointer on Sunday, with 18 points, two blocks, a steal and two assists.

    Gordon only logged 21 minutes to the blowout nature of the game but still filled it up in the counters for his owners. Continue to deploy him as you would in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Christian Wood - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Christian Wood made his Pelicans debut on Sunday and had seven points in eight minutes on 3-of-5 shooting in a loss to the Rockets.

    Although some may have picked him up as a speculative add in the hopes that he would join the Pelicans' strange rotation for heavy minutes, he is not worth owning in any formats.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets guaranteed their post-season berth on Sunday with a win against the Pelicans and Chris Paul played a central role with 10 points, 13 assists, five steals and a triple.

    The Rockets have three tough matchups this upcoming week and it's likely that Paul will have to show up for each of these for the Rockets to continue winning. If you have him feel free to roll him out as there are no back-to-backs coming up.

  • Frank Jackson - G - New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson played well on Sunday as he had 19 points and a career-high six dimes on 7-of-16 shooting in 34 minutes of action in a loss to the Rockets.

    He made three 3-pointers and contributed three rebounds and one steal as well. He can be considered a deep-league scoring option for the next two weeks as fantasy playoffs are underway. Kenrich Williams only had two points on 1-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds and two steals.

  • James Harden - G - Houston Rockets

    James Harden logged 29 minutes on Sunday in the 113-90 win over the New Orleans Pelicans, collecting 28 points, four assists, six triples, three boards, a steal and a block.

    Harden will finish the year with the best fantasy performance in the modern NBA, besting all of his peers including LeBron in terms of single-season fantasy production. It won't matter if Harden earns the league MVP for fantasy owners, he's redefined what fantasy dominance means to us all.
