• Lou Williams
    PG/SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams won't play on Wednesday against the Lakers due to an ankle injury.

    Williams finishes his 2017-2018 campaign as a top-30 player in total stats thanks to outstanding durability with 79 games played. The Clippers acquired Williams before the season in the Chris Paul trade to the Rockets. Thanks to some midseason injuries to the Clippers backcourt the veteran dropped three 40-point games and a 50-point game. Not long after the Clippers signed him to a 3-year contract extension at $7 million a year. The 31-year-old actually dropped off quite a bit towards the end of the season as the Clippers got healthy and was actually outside the top-100 per-game over his last 27 games even when playing 33.4 minutes per game during that stretch. So Sweet Lou's top-50 per game numbers are a bit skewed due to the amount of injuries the Clippers incurred. Don't take him too early next season or you may be disappointed.

Fantasy News

  • Dillon Brooks
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Dillon Brooks (shoulder) started on Saturday and scored 10 points with two steals in 23 minutes.

    Brooks was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury but was able to play through it. Brooks is a late-round value in standard leagues and will have a boost in in the short term with Ja Morant (back) week-to-week.

  • Grayson Allen
    SG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Grayson Allen scored 13 points on Saturday, shooting 6-of-9 from the field and 1-of-3 from deep in 25 minutes.

    Allen has played at least 25 minutes in four straight games, but he hasn't done much with the opportunity. Allen can be a streaming option for points and threes in deep leagues while Ja Morant is week-to-week.

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    De'Anthony Melton scored six points on Saturday with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 20 minutes.

    Melton has been a standard-league player since Ja Morant has been injured. Melton is a pickup in standard-leagues while Morant is week-to-week, and should be available in a lot of leagues with only 11 percent ownership on Yahoo.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden took over in the fourth after having a slow start to Saturday's 115-109 win and finished with 34 points, along with six rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block, three treys and no turnovers.

    Harden was struggling with his shot for most of the game but then scored 17 straight Rockets points to bring home the win. He only shot 8-of-27 from the field, including 3-of-17 from three and added 15-of-18 from the line. Also of note was that he had zero turnovers which is a season-best, as he averages 5.1 turnovers per game. The Beard is a fantasy beast.

  • T.J. McConnell
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    T.J. McConnell dropped 11 dimes on Saturday to go with six points on 3-of-3 shooting in 20 minutes.

    McConnell saw extra minutes with Malcolm Brogdon (sore right hand) sitting out on Saturday. McConnell can be left on the waiver wire and is only a streamer for assists when the Pacers are injured at point guard.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris dropped 25 points on Saturday, shooting 9-of-17 from the field and 4-of-8 from deep.

    Morris added little outside the points and threes, but he is still inside the top-75 on the back of his 18.6 points and 2.9 threes per game. Morris should be considered a sell-high candidate, especially since his role moving forward is uncertain as a veteran player on the struggling Knicks.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook dominated with a triple double, as he scored 24 points, grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out 11 assists and added three steals, two blocks and one trey in Saturday's win against the Suns.

    Westbrook was efficient from the field as he found opening for drives to the hole. He went 10-of-18 from the field, including 1-of-3 from 3-point land. Hopefully, this will springboard him to more efficient shooting games for the rest of the season

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham has not been listed on the injury report after briefly leaving with an apparent shoulder injury last game and will start on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

    Graham looks to be healthy and has potential to put up big numbers in a favourable matchup against the defensively challenged Hawks. He is a projected to easily put up top-75 value for the rest of the season.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson rejected three shots on Saturday to go with 14 points (6-of-9 from the field), seven rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes.

    Robinson shot 2-of-2 from the line and the key stat is that he only tallied one personal foul. Robinson is averaging 11.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 2.3 blocks over his last three games and could blow up in a hurry. His buy-low window could slam shut soon.

  • Ben McLemore
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Ben McLemore came off the bench to score 27 points and added two rebounds, one steal and five treys on Saturday vs. the Suns.

    McLemore's hot shooting continues, even after returning to the bench. In 30 minutes, he went 10-of-15 from the field, including 5-of-9 from three and was a perfect 2-of-2 from the line. He is fitting in well nicely with James Harden and has a quick trigger finger. This hot shooting isn't sustainable so he a sell-high player.
