• Wesley Matthews
    G/F, Indiana Pacers

    Wesley Matthews (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.

    Matthews was joined by backcourt mate Darren Collison, who also returned to practice on Thursday. With a big matchup looming against the Celtics with home-court advantage on the line look for Matthews to try to play through the groin injury. His return would be a dent in the values of Cory Joseph, Tyreke Evans and Aaron Holiday.

  • Robert Covington
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Robert Covington put up 16 points with seven cash counters in a 142-125 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.

    Covington hit three triples and added three steals and one block to the stat sheet. Covington is trotting along with his typical top-50 value and consistent defensive stats. He is one of the most consistent players in the league when it comes to fantasy.

  • Alex Caruso
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Alex Caruso put up 16 points on 5-of-11 shooting in a win over the Wolves on Sunday.

    Caruso added four rebounds, four assists and two steals to the stat sheet. He made two of his three attempts from beyond the arc. He was second on the team in minutes with 30 and he is worth a look in deep leagues.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James put up 32 points and 13 assists in a win over the Wolves on Sunday.

    James shot 12-of-20 from the field and 6-of-8 from beyond the arc. Although Anthony Davis has asserted himself as the top option on the Lakers, James is still a top-10 fantasy asset and underdog MVP candidate.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis dropped 50 points on 20-of-29 shooting in a 142-125 victory over the Wolves on Sunday.

    Davis added seven rebounds, six assists, four steals and one block to the stat sheet. AD took over this game and led the Lakers to the win.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up 21 points with nine rebounds on 5-of-14 shooting in a win over the Blazers on Sunday.

    Gilgeous-Alexander shot 5-of-14 from the field and 9-of-12 from the stripe. SGA is just outside top-100 value on the season and is looking like a late-round scoring specialist. Dennis Schroder chipped in 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting with three triples and two assists. Schroder provides solid scoring and passing value for standard leagues, but is outside top-150 on the season.

  • Chris Paul
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Chris Paul put up 20 points on 7-of-17 shooting in a win over the Blazers on Sunday.

    Paul made two of his six attempts from beyond the arc and added three steals to the box score. He is the best fantasy player on the Thunder this season and is a solid top-30 option.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel put up 13 points and 12 boards in a 108-96 win over the Blazers on Sunday.

    Noel has outplayed Steven Adams this season and did so once again on Sunday night. Adams put up six points, nine rebounds and four assists on 2-of-6 shooting. Noel added one steal and two blocks to the box score as well. Both guys are worth owning in standard leagues and Adams has a huge buy-low window right now.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony had a horrible shooting night on Sunday against the Thunder as he put up nine points on 4-of-18 shooting.

    Anthony added eight rebounds and three assists to the stat sheet. He has been a late-round value since his signing and top-70 value over the past two weeks. He is worth owning in all formats, especially now that Rodney Hood is out for the season.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard put up 26 points on 8-of-24 shooting with seven assists in a loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

    Lillard added three rebounds and one steal to the box score. He had an off-night efficiency-wise, as did CJ McCollum who put up 20 points on 8-of-21 shooting. The dynamic duo has been inside top-20 value over the past two weeks.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside put up 14 points with 10 rebounds and five blocks on 6-of-8 shooting in a 108-96 loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

    Whiteside dominated on the glass and on the defensive end, which is a great sign from a guy who was seemingly given up on in Miami. He has put up top-5 value over the past two weeks and has reasserted himself into fantasy dominance.
