• Wesley Matthews
    G/F, Dallas Mavericks

    Wes Matthews (left hamstring strain) returned to action after two-game absence on Saturday against the Celtics, scoring 15 points on 4-of-12 shooting (including three treys) with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes.

    If Matthews can stay healthy he has a pretty good shot at consistent late round value so he's certainly worth a look in 12-team standard formats, with a strong lean toward 9-cat leagues.

Fantasy News

  • 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.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell was seen heading to the locker room on Tuesday with trainers in tow.

    Snell has started all 11 games for the Pistons and has averaged just over 29 minutes per game. Continue to check for updates.

  • Malik Beasley
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Malik Beasley will be forced to miss Tuesday's matchup vs. the Hawks due to an illness.

    Beasley was questionable heading into the matchup but was unable to shake his illness. His next opportunity to take the court will come on Thursday.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Dewayne Dedmon will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Blazers despite dealing with a knee injury.

    Dedmon is in a very crowded rotation in Sacramento despite Marvin Bagley's injury. He is currently only seeing 17.1 minutes per game.

  • Garrett Temple
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Garrett Temple will start in place of Caris LeVert (sprained right thumb) at shooting guard on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

    Temple might see more than his typical 20.8 minutes on Tuesday night but his ceiling is still pretty low from a fantasy perspective. There will be more shots available for the likes of Taurean Prince, Joe Harris, Kyrie Irving and Spencer Dinwiddie.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay (hamstring) is available for Tuesday's matchup against the Nets.

    It is a very encouraging sign for Mudiay to play in both games of this back-to-back set after he missed three games prior with hamstring tightness. Expect Mudiay to have his typical role off the bench on Tuesday. Mudiay is currently only averaging 17.9 minutes per game.
