• Maurice Harkless
    F, Portland Trail Blazers

    Moe Harkless (knee) returned to action after a one-month absence in Wednesday's loss to the Bucks, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting with three rebounds, one block and two steals in 13 minutes.

    The best case scenario for Harkless is some late-round value if he can get healthy and stay out of his own head. That means outside of deep leagues owners can watch this action from the wire. Look for some of the role players on the wings to see their minutes scaled back.

Fantasy News

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams finished with 10 points, five rebounds and one assist on 5-of-8 shooting in 19 minutes while Nerlens Noel piled up five defensive stats and ended up seeing 21 minutes in the blowout loss.

    Noel didn't contribute much outside of the defensive stats while Adams didn't have a great game in terms of fantasy. They seemed to eat into each other's fantasy value in this game as Adams only saw 19 minutes while Noel only saw 21 minutes. Both players need more opportunity to provide standard league value.

  • Jordan Clarkson
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Jordan Clarkson matched his season-high with 20 points (8-for-16 FGs, 3-for-5 FTs) and added four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer vs. the Sixers on Tuesday.

    Clarkson has been providing late-round value in 23 minutes per game, but his free throw value will likely drop a bit and put him back in his familiar territory as a points streamer before too long. Collin Sexton fared well in this one as well, with 18 points, five boards, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes.

  • Hamidou Diallo
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Hamidou Diallo had only two points on 1-of-4 shooting and pitched in three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one turnover in a 111-85 loss to the Pacers.

    Diallo has gotten some fantasy buzz recently as he has been receiving plenty of minutes in the early going. He has averaged 22.0 minutes per game so far and could continue to see plenty of opportunity, especially with Terrance Ferguson (personal) sidelined.

  • 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.
