• Victor Oladipo
    G, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (knee soreness) is listed as out for Thursday's game.

    Things can change between now and tomorrow, but Oladipo needs at least a practice before returning to the court and we didn't hear anything about his activity today. We're not expecting to see Oladipo on the court until next week at this point. Tyreke Evans will continue to start in his place while Aaron Holiday has done a great job off the bench.

Fantasy News

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal continued to feast in Wednesday night's 138-132 win over the Spurs, racking up 33 points on 14-of-24 shooting, four boards, four assists and sinking three from deep.

    Beal is starting to show that he is worthy of the early round pick he was taken at. With the Wizards not having many other options, Beal will be this team's go-to-guy on a nightly basis.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant turned in a meddling 11 points, five rebounds, but set a season-high in assists with six on Wednesday night.

    Bryant had a pretty average night, but seeing the uptick in assists was a nice addition for fantasy owners. He's currently a top-50 player and will likely flirt with that mark for the season.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle had a brief reprieve to his poor shooting in his previous game, but was back to the usual in Wednesday's loss, scoring 17 points (5-of-13 shooting), eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and two triples in 36 minutes.

    Randle has been one of the fantasy season's worst picks with his high-volume, low shooting numbers, and until he turns that around he will keep himself outside of being usuable in standard leagues.

  • Rui Hachimura
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Rui Hachimura put in a solid effort, ending Wednesday night's contest with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting, seven boards and two assists.

    Hachimura has been able to score and rebound with nice a field goal percentage, but that's about it. Until he adds another dimension to his game, he'll hover at late-round value. Davis Bertans, on the other hand, came off the bench adding 21 points, five boards, four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers. Bertans is just inside top-100 value on the season.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina scored 17 points but added little else in Wednesday's 104-109 loss to the 76ers, adding one rebound, one block and two triples in 33 minutes.

    Ntilikina has the starting job all to himself with Elfrid Payton (right hamstring) out, but has shown time and time again that he doesn't have the consistancy, nor the stat set, to be worth a roster spot in most settings.

  • Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Isaiah Thomas scored 11 points (4-of-10 shooting) to go with six assists, three 3-pointers and nothing else in 24 minutes on Wednesday night.

    Thomas' shooting from deep was a nice addition, but other than that he had a very pedestrian line. Ish Smith ended up coming off the bench and contributed 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting, four boards, four assists, a block and drained three from beyond the arc. Smith had the better game in this one, and the Washington backcourt is one to watch. However, right now Thomas looks like the one to roster.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris lead the way for the Knicks in their close game against the 76ers, finishing his night with 22 points (8-of-21 shooting), 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, four triples and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Morris has led the team in minutes played this year and did so again tonight. On a team with nothing to offer from a fantasy perspective, Morris has been a surprising bright spot through the first month of the season, ranking around the top-75 in 9-cat leagues heading into tonight's ball game. There lies the possibility of regression as he saw last year after a hot start, but for now you gotta ride him while he's hot.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford couldn't get it going during Wednesday's win over the Knicks, finishing his night with seven points (3-of-11 shooting), six rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block, a triple and a turnover in 25 minutes.

    Horford was able to salvage this one with the defensive numbers and 3-pointer. He has still been a steady mid-round value on the year and should be a consistent starting-quality player for the rest of the season.

  • DeMar DeRozan
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan dropped 31 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the field and 13-of-17 from the line on Wednesday.

    DeRozan followed up his season-high in points with another 30-plus point effort. He went to the charity stripe, a season-high, 17 times in this one, but still refuses to shoot anything from deep. He will stick around mid-round value unless that changes.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz got the start in Wednesday's 109-104 win over the Knicks but failed to make the most of it, scoring just two points with an assist in 16 minutes.

    Korkmaz had some nice games shooting the 3-ball earlier this month, but as seen tonight, he can't keep himself on the floor when his 3-point shot isn't falling. He's not worth a streaming spot even when he steps into a starting role.
