• Paul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Paul George scored a season-high 47 points and triple-doubled in the Thunder's 120-111 win over the Blazers on Monday, hitting 15-of-26 shots (8-of-13 3PTs, 9-of-11 FTs) with 12 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals.

    George is just ridiculous this season and he's moving into a solid top-3 position on the year with no end in sight. Russell Westbrook had a mere 21-point triple-double with 14 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, two blocks and one trey, but hit just 5-of-19 shots to get there with six turnovers. There's no question who OKC's top player is nowadays but Thunder fans will gladly take both of them.

Fantasy News

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) is not on the injury report and will play in Thursday's tilt with the Bucks.

    As expected after Irving played in Sunday's All-Star game. He should be good to go for top-10 value the rest of the way as the Celtics claw their way up the standings.

  • Robert Williams III - C/F - Boston Celtics

    Robert Williams is available to play in Thursday's game with the Bucks.

    Williams missed the final game before the break because of an illness. He's unlikely to see much playing time either way, but at least he's healthy.

  • Terry Rozier - G - Boston Celtics

    Terry Rozier (illness) is not on the injury report and will play on Thursday against the Bucks.

    Rozier's illness wasn't expected to sideline him for long and he had the whole All-Star break to rest up. He's fine to use if you usually have him in your lineup.

  • Andrew Wiggins - G/F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (illness) is not on the injury report for Friday's matchup with the Knicks.

    Wiggins missed the two games prior to the All-Star break, allowing Luol Deng to start. He's safe to get into fantasy lineups tomorrow.

  • Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones (sprained left ankle) is no longer on the injury report and should play on Friday against the Knicks.

    Jones is expected to make his return and the formal step of taking him off the injury report bodes very well. Deep-league owners can give him a look for steals and assists, though the ceiling is quite low with both Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose back in action.

  • Gorgui Dieng - C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Gorgui Dieng (personal) will miss Friday's game against the Knicks.

    Dieng would've been an interesting player to watch had he been moved at the deadline, but no dice. His absence won't mean much for fantasy players.

  • Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Speaking to the media at Thursday's practice, Kevin Love said, "I think you’ll see me more on a steady basis and not miss games after the break, I’m hoping."

    Love played six minutes in his first game back after left foot surgery, sat out the second game, played 16 minutes in the third and sat out the fourth. He'll be on a minutes restriction for the time being but it does sound like fantasy owners can expect Love to play in the majority of Cleveland's remaining 24 games. Conditioning remains the last hurdle here, as Love says he's feeling good. We'll see how much run the woeful Cavs give to their star.

  • Jerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Jerami Grant (sprained right ankle) was able to return to practice on Thursday.

    Grant sat out the two games prior to the All-Star break but looks good to go moving forward. It's been a nice breakout season for Grant, who has grabbed firm hold of the starting power forward spot. The addition of Markieff Morris might affect him somewhat but we don't envision Grant slipping too far from his current middle-round standing.

  • Darius Miller - F - New Orleans Pelicans

    Darius Miller (right ankle sprain) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Pacers.

    Miller has been logging big minutes as the Pelicans' sixth man and has emerged as a viable 3-point specialist in deeper leagues. Kenrich Williams, Stanley Johnson and Solomon Hill will divvy up the available playing time, with only Williams looking fantasy-relevant.

  • Kyle Anderson - F - Memphis Grizzlies

    Kyle Anderson (sore right shoulder) underwent an MRI and will not play on Friday.

    Anderson has visited multiple specialists with the Grizzlies providing no updates, though hopefully we get something concrete after they get the results of today's tests back. This will be Slo Mo's eighth straight game on the shelf, with Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles, Bruno Caboclo and Chandler Parsons all in the mix to absorb his minutes.
