• Emmanuel Mudiay finished with 19 points, four rebounds and six assists in 37 minutes while Kenneth Faried finished with 14 points, nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Mudiay shot 5-of-13 from the field, 1-of-3 from three and 8-of-10 at the line while Faried finished 4-of-8 from the field and 6-of-7 at the line. Both players produced across the board and continued to display late round value. They are worth keeping in the lineup moving forward.

  • Nicolas Claxton
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Nets rookie Nicolas Claxton impressed in his second consecutive game, filling in for the injured DeAndre Jordan,

    For Claxton, this is his second consecutive solid performance against a playoff-caliber team. He came off the bench for 14 points, six rebounds and three blocks in Brooklyn’s loss to Milwaukee on Saturday. He is a short-term add for as long as DJ remains sidelined while he has shown great potential to be owned in dynasty leagues.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves have been trying to improve their rebounding all season and Karl-Anthony Towns said that determination is needed.

    “It’s the fourth quarter. It doesn’t matter. We’ve got to have that toughness,” Towns said. “We’ve got to have that fight. We’ve got to go get that ball. It’s all of us.” The Wolves rank 21st in defensive rebounding percentage at .725, which is where they’ve languished for most of the season. Playing Robert Covington at the power forward position hasn’t helped the team in regards to rebounding, especially when it comes to second chance opportunities. KAT himself is averaging 11.1 rebounds for the season and hopefully this is an area that he improves as the season progresses.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    After spraining his right ankle on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Marcus Morris will probably not play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Morris remains a sell-high candidate in the middle of an exceptional season, while recent injuries have taken a toll on his value. The Knicks are also missing R.J. Barrett so it’s going to be Kevin Knox and Wayne Ellington who have to step up if Morris can’t give it a go.

  • Boban Marjanovic
    C, Dallas Mavericks

    Boban Marjanovic was extremely efficient (5-for6 FGs, 2-for-2 FTs) on Tuesday, producing 12 points, seven rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 16 minutes vs. the Clippers.

    With Dwight Powell likely lost for the season, Marjanovic should see a few extra minutes. And that's really all he needs to provide decent fantasy value. However, even with Kristaps Porzingis out for the past ten games, Boban played in just six. Keep in mind that he's unlikely to play in nearly every game even if his minutes get bumped into the 15-minute range.

  • Delon Wright
    PG, Dallas Mavericks

    Delon Wright was nearly invisible in the box score on Tuesday vs. the Clippers with two points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 12 minutes.

    Wright's minutes have been under 15 per game for three straight games now after a stretch of five games of over 20 minutes. He's frustrating to own, but when he's getting over 20 minutes, he's putting up standard-league value. If his stat set isn't interesting to you, feel free to leave him alone, but there's always a chance he gets back to the mid-round player he was in Memphis last season.

  • Maxi Kleber
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Maximillian Kleber played 32 minutes in a loss to the Clippers on Tuesday, providing eight points on 4-of-7 shooting, five rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

    Kleber was back on the bench with Kristaps Porzingis returning to the lineup, but Dwight Powell went down with what looks to be a season-ending injury, so he's right back to a 30-plus minute role. That load has had him inside the top-100 lately due to his blocks and threes skill set. He's worth an add in case he's still out there in your league.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic filled up the box score once again on Tuesday with 36 points on 12-of-26 shooting, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes as the Mavs lost to the Clippers 107-110.

    Doncic made just 9-of-14 free throws, though one miss was intentional. The free throws have dipped a bit closer to last year's sub-par mark lately. If he can right the ship there, Doncic should have a great chance at finishing the season as a top-10 player.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis returned from a 10-game absence on Tuesday and struggled to get his shot to fall, putting up 10 points on 4-of-17 shooting with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

    Porzingis' minutes were slightly limited, but 27 minutes right out of the gate is encouraging. Dwight Powell looks to be done for the season after an Achilles injury tonight, so Porzingis may be needed to pull some additional weight in the second half of the season. He should be a top-50 player down the stretch.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers to a 110-107 road win over the Mavs on Tuesday with 36 points (12-of-29 FGs, 11-of-12 FTs), 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals, two blocks and a three in 36 minutes.

    All that with just one turnover for Leonard, too. Leonard may sit a game out every other week or so, but he's been the top player on a per game basis over the last month. His number will likely get dialed back a bit when Paul George returns, but there are few better when Leonard takes the floor.

  • Landry Shamet
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Landry Shamet made five 3-pointers as part of an 18-point, three-rebound, one-assist performance in 36 minutes in a win over the Mavs on Tuesday.

    Shamet his all three of his freebies and attempted eight 3-point shots and no 2-point shots in this one. Shamet's performance from distance is the only reason to stream him from time to time. He's an excellent free throw shooter, but he doesn't get to the line often enough for it to help much.
