• Wayne Ellington (shoulder) warmed up and is expected to play on Friday against the Bucks.

    Ellington has been in a shooting slump for the past few weeks (31.1 percent), but he still probably leads your wire in 3-pointers. He’s a fine add as a 3-point specialist with a bit of upside.

Fantasy News

  • De'Aaron Fox
    PG, Sacramento Kings

    De'Aaron Fox scored 21 points on 10-of-16 shooting with eight assists and four rebounds before fouling out in 31 minutes on Saturday.

    Fox fouled out late in the game and was the lone bright spot for the Kings in a 123-101 blowout loss. Fox has hit his stride in January with averages of 24.1 points, 5.6 boards, 8.4 assists and 2.0 steals. He's showing that he's capable of returning value on his early-round ADP late in the season.

  • Mike Conley
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Mike Conley (left hamstring strain) returned to action for the Jazz on Saturday, seeing 15 minutes of action and producing three points on 1-of-3 shooting (all from deep) with one rebound, three assists and two steals.

    It's a good first baby step back for Conley, who will clearly be eased in by the Jazz. He should, in time, eventually make his way back into the starting lineup, which should push Joe Ingles (two points, nine rebounds, 12 assists, 31 minutes) back to a reserve role.

  • Reggie Bullock
    SG-SF, New York Knicks

    Reggie Bullock 14 points in Saturday's loss to the Sixers, finishing with three rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    With teammate RJ Barrett out this one, Bullock got the start and ended up playing 35 minutes in a tightly contested game. Bullock provides short-term value in Barrett's absence as he can provide decent steals and a few 3-pointers.

  • James Harden
    PG, Houston Rockets

    James Harden put up 34 points (8-of-20 FGs, 16-of-18 FTs) with six rebounds, seven assists, two 3-pointers, one block and six turnovers in Saturday's loss to the Lakers.

    Harden put up a solid performance, but it's scary to think that the Lakers held off the Rockets without Anthony Davis. Still, the Rockets are in the thick of the playoff race and expect Harden and his top fantasy value to be a big part of it.

  • PJ Tucker
    SF, Houston Rockets

    P.J. Tucker hurt his shoulder and took a trip to the locker room on Saturday but finished the game with six points on 2-of-8 shooting with eight rebounds, two 3s and one assist.

    Tucker has not been doing enough lately and has fallen out of the top-250 in 9-cat over the past two weeks. He's a drop candidate right now and can be picked up once his game is back in flow.

  • Collin Sexton
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Collin Sexton shot 10-of-17 from the field and 4-of-6 from deep on his way to scoring 26 points with seven rebounds and two assists in a 118-116 loss to the Bulls on Saturday.

    Sexton has been on a hot streak the past two weeks, shooting .474 from the field and scoring 23.1 points per game. He doesn't add much outside of points and threes and will be capped at late-round value until that changes.

  • Devin Booker
    SG, Phoenix Suns

    Devin Booker was fabulous in this one, finishing just one assist shy of a triple-double in Saturday's 123-119 win over the Celtics, chipping in 39 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and finishing 14-of-15 from the charity stripe.

    Booker ruined the Celtics' Marcus Smarts' career-night, dropping 39 points on the road and finishing just shy of a triple-double. Everyone knows that Booker can score but the ball handling has steadily improved and he is averaging over six assists a game. He continues to be a top-30 fantasy option and games like these may push him into top-20 consideration.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Russell Westbrook nearly notched a triple-double in Saturday's loss to the Lakers, tallying 35 points on 15-of-23 field goals with nine rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

    Westbrook's night wasn't all balloons and roses. In fact, he committed five turnovers and was awful from the free-throw line, making just 5-of-8 shots from there. As good as the counting stats are, Russ does have his stat-set issues as well as his rest days in B2Bs.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton double-doubled with 26 points and 15 rebounds in Saturday's win over the Celtics, finishing with two assists and two blocks.

    Ayton was good in this one and ended up doing a lot of his damage from the charity stripe, finishing 10-of-11. His 15 boards and two blocks erased a slightly inefficient shooting night as he went 8-of-22.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose shot 12-of-17 from the field on his way to scoring 27 points with nine assists in 26 minutes on Saturday.

    Rose is a must-own player in standard leagues and the short-handed Pistons continue to lean on him heavily for his offense. Rose is in a great situation and his value could take a hit if he is traded, but owners shouldn't worry about that in the meantime.
