• Pascal Siakam
    F, Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam scored 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting in 31 minutes in a win over the Hawks on Wednesday.

    He added four rebounds, two assists and two steals to the box score. Serge Ibaka was the big man to come off the bench in this one and had 19 points and nine rebounds on 8-of-11 shooting in 21 minutes. The Raptors frontcourt is scary with both Siakam and Ibaka inside the top-40 in value this season.

Fantasy News

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons did it all on Wednesday, finishing his night with 18 points (7-of-9 shooting), 13 assists, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and his first career 3-pointer.

    Long time fantasy owners of Simmons will double-take tonight after finally seeing a number in the 3-point column. He has been shooting lights-out from the floor over his last few ball-games, but unfortunately continues to keep missing his free throws. Until he stops hurting you in that column, and assuming he continues to hit one triple every four years, he will not be able to crack the fantasy threshold that he has been drafted at.

  • Jakob Poeltl
    C, San Antonio Spurs

    Jakob Poeltl did a little bit of everything in his first start of the season, ending with a line of 11 points, five boards, two assists, a steal and three blocks on Wednesday night.

    It was a new starting five for the Spurs tonight, and Poeltl made his case to stay there. While he is only worth a flier in deeper leagues right now, it is worth monitoring the starting situation in San Antonio. Consistent nights like this, and he'll creep up in relevance.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid struggled with his shot in Wednesday's win, finishing with 22 points (7-of-19 shooting) to go with 12 rebounds, five assists, two blocks a triple and three turnovers.

    The Sixers were off all night against an inferior Knicks' team and a good deal of it started with Embiid's inefficiency. He put some shots together towards then end including a last-minute 3-pointer. Look for him to shoot better from the floor in his next one.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart (ankle) will be available against the Clippers on Wednesday night.

    Smart avoids serious injury to his ankle and is also expected to play without a minutes limit. Roll him out there as you usually would.

  • Patty Mills
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Patty Mills received his first start of the season on Wednesday night, putting up 16 points, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Mills made the most of his first start of the season and ended with a respectable stat line. Dejounte Murray only logged 19 minutes coming off the bench but still managed 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, five boards, two assists and three steals. Murray is still the one you want to roster, but this backcourt is getting murky.

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon has suffered a right ankle sprain and will not reurn to Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

    In a brutal turn of events the Magic are now down Gordon and Nikola Vucevic (right ankle sprain) to the same injury in the same game. With Gordon out of commission Jonathan Issac will bare a heavy load while Khem Birch, Mo Bamba and Al-Farouq Aminu will all see extended run.

  • Nikola Vucevic
    C, Orlando Magic

    Nikola Vucevic has been ruled out for the remainder of the Wednesday's game with a right ankle sprain.

    He couldn't walk off on his own power and will likely be re-evaluated in the coming days. Khem Birch and Mo Bamba will hold down the center minutes in his absence.

  • Nikola Vucevic

    Nikola Vucevic had to be helped to the locker room after hurting his foot during Wednesday's game.

    It doesn't sound good and we will be on standby for further updates.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard will play against the Celtics on Wednesday according to Dan Woike of the LA Times.

    It was reported that he was expected to return tonight and now we have our confirmation. We now get to watch the long-awaited debut of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George together. Throw him back into your lineups.

  • Michael Carter-Williams
    PG, Orlando Magic

    An MRI done on Michael Carter-Williams' hip showed that the injury was less severe than feared, though he remains without a timetable to return.

    The news wasn't that the MRI came back negative, so MCW is likely to miss a good deal more time here. Markelle Fultz and D.J Augustin will continue to split the PG duties in his absence.
