• Russell Westbrook
    G, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook scored 19 points on 8-of-19 shooting (1-of-5 3PTs, 2-of-7 FTs) with 11 rebounds, 17 assists and six steals in Wednesday's win over the Kings.

    Westbrook has been a top 15-30 play (8/9 cat) when on the floor this season and things are probably trending downward for him as he ever-so-slowly loses his superhuman explosion — eroding from a game that relies on that very thing. In the meantime, just enjoy the stat explosions as they continue to pile up.

Fantasy News

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday had an epic performance on Tuesday, leading the Pelicans to a 125-111 win over the Cavs with 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting and a fat stat line.

    Holiday was just out of this world, adding two rebounds, three treys, eight dimes, three steals and four blocks in his 33 minutes. Any fears of him sliding while sharing the court with Zion Williamson should be assuaged with this monster line. As long as Holiday stays healthy, he should be a lock as a top-20 asset.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    After being ruled out and then back in prior to the game, Devonte' Graham (illness) shot just 1-for-8 from the field and 3-for-6 from the line in a 5-point, 10-assist effort in 35 minutes vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

    Graham's shooting performance in this one can probably be excused due to his illness. His field goal percentage, however, hasn't been much better in healthy games since his hot start to the season. Graham is elite in assists and threes, but that awful shooting number (now 35.4 percent over the past month) drags him out of the middle-rounds where he used to reside.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby hurt his shoulder in Tuesday's game and was forced to head back to the locker room.

    Anunoby was cooking tonight, making a strong impact on the defensive end. Hopefully, it's nothing serious and he'll be able to return. Stay tuned.

  • Wesley Matthews
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Matthews was able to return to the Bucks bench after a brief trip to the locker room on Tuesday.

    Whatever it is that bugged Matthews is apparently nothing serious. We wouldn't be surprised if made it back on the court.

  • Wesley Matthews
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Wesley Mathews headed to the locker room in Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Matthews is a starting placeholder right now, but guys like Donte DinVincenzo are the ones holding more value. If Matthews is unable to return, expect DiVincenzo, Pat Connaughton and Kyle Korver to pick up the slack.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle had another good stat line on Tuesday with 24 points (10-of-19 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes in a 92-97 road loss to the Hornets.

    Randle hasn't been as bad as he was to begin the season lately. However, he still has a tough time providing even mid-round value, which is rare for a 20-point, 10-rebound player. If his percentages are wearing on your team, it might be wise to try to sell him off to someone that doesn't look past points, rebounds and assists. Elfrid Payton also contributed significantly to the Knicks' effort with 10 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and a steal in 33 minutes.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson blocked five shots, pulled down 10 rebounds and hit both of his field goals in 26 minutes off the bench vs. the Hornets on Tuesday.

    Robinson swatted a few shots down the stretch, helping to keep the game close, but the Knicks couldn’t quite catch the Hornets. While it's been frustrating to watch the Knicks limit Robinson's role this season, he's still a valuable fantasy player that can't be dropped. His blocks and field goal percentage are elite, and there always the chance he makes the jump from middle-round value to early-round value like he did last season.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. showed up in the box score on Tuesday with seven points on 3-of-6 shooting, three rebounds and two assists in 15 minutes in a loss to the Hornets.

    This is the most Smith has played in nearly two months. And while the results weren't anything special, it could be the start of a regular role in the rotation once again now that he's looking healthier. Also encouraging for those with their eye on Smith is the fact that Frank Ntilikina played for just three minutes in this game.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol is dealing with hamstring tightness and has been ruled out for the remainder of Tuesday's game.

    Gasol is fragile, especially given his age. The wear and tear adds up and aches and pains such as this are par for the course. He was able to log 16 minutes in this one and post 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting with two 3s, two blocks, one rebound and one assist. Serge Ibaka will feast on those center minutes and return a strong game.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol headed to the locker room in Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Gasol has been solid since returning from his previous injury. If he's unable to return, Serge Ibaka is an easy slot-in for the Raptors at center.
