Chris Paul went off in a 105-104 win over the Celtics on Sunday with 28 points, six rebounds and seven assists.
Paul shot 9-of-19 from the field and knocked down 10 free throws in 37 minutes of action. Paul remains a top-15 option and his value is boosted even higher in games like this one when Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is out. Danilo Gallinari put up 18 points and six boards on 6-of-17 shooting. Gallinari is a lock for top-50 value for the rest of the season.

Danilo Gallinari was up to his old tricks in an easy win over the Knicks, dropping a team-high 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 at the line with three triples, one rebound and two assists.
Gallinari, as long as he's not being rested, has been a steady and reliable source of efficient points (especially at the line) and threes over the season. He's a solid as they come and a lock to end 2019-20 with his safe floor of mid-round value.

Steven Adams had a lackluster performance in a loss to the Clippers on Tuesday, going for just four points (2-of-6 FGs), 10 rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes.
Adams has had a streaky season, so hopefully this isn't part of the beginning over another slow stretch for the big man. He's still a hold in standard leagues at this point. Danilo Gallinari's line was also a bit empty with some poor shooting: 15 points (4-of-13 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs), four treys, four boards and a steal in 29 minutes.

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle) is not on Tuesday's injury report after missing Friday's game.
Gallinari was sitting out the second game of a back-to-back, so he was expected to be back. Still, given his injury history, it's nice to get confirmation that there's nothing actually wrong with him.
February 28, 2020, 8:08 pmHamidou DialloSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Hamidou Diallo will start for an injured Danilo Gallinari (left ankle) on Friday evening in the Thunder's road game against the Bucks.
Diallo has offered solid production in limited action this season, and his per-36 numbers reflect that. If he were getting those types of minutes every night, he would be sitting at 12.0 points per game and 6.4 boards per game. That said, nobody is expecting Diallo to get anywhere close to that much playing time on Friday. The Thunder are too balanced and too deep for him to carry any fantasy value.

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Bucks.
Gallinari dropped 24 points on Thursday night so this looks like the Thunder taking it easy on one of their key players. You can never completely brush off an injury with Gallinari, but for now you can expect him back in short order. Hamidou Diallo and Abdel Nader should see extra minutes tonight.

Danilo Gallinari had a game-high 24 points with six boards, one steal and four triples in Thursday's 112-108 win over the Kings.
Gallinari has put together another strong fantasy season by his standards, mainly due to the fact that he's stayed healthy. He came into tonight in a bit of a funk, but his past two games have been much more in line with his normal play. The Rooster has been huge for the Thunder lately, especially in crunch time, so enjoy the ride.

Danilo Gallinari heated up early in Tuesday's game and was able to finish with 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting, including five 3s with four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.
Gallinari has held steady as a top-50 player on the season and given his role with the Thunder, there's no reason to think he would slide from that pace.

The Thunder held trade talks at the deadline with the Heat on a deal involving Danilo Gallinari, but he ultimately remained with the franchise and he is happy about it.
“I really wanted to stay here. It would be tough to leave such a great atmosphere, great teammates, a group that is winning," said Gallinari. "I wanted to stay.” Oklahoma has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the season and this has to do with Gallinari playing at a high level, averaging 19.1 points and 5.6 rebounds while making a career-high 2.9 triples per game. The Rooster is returning top-50 value for the season and the hope is that he can remain healthy until the end.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander notched 11 points (4-for-14 shooting), nine rebounds, nine assists and a block in Friday's win over the Nuggets.
SGA did some good things in this one despite struggling with his shot. He mostly fed off Chris Paul who dominated the end of the game for the Thunder. Danilo Gallinari finished with 15 points (4-for-14 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, two triples and one seal in 32 minutes.

Danilo Galinari carried the Thunder to Thursday's 123-118 win over the Pelicans with a team-high 29 points on 12-of-18 shooting to go with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Galinari was on fire late in the fourth and the gameplan quickly turned into isolation sets revolving around him. He displayed his entire arsenal, drawing fouls, hitting leaning mid-range jumpers and getting defenders to bite on his pump fakes. The Rooster was killing it on offense tonight and the hot shooting won't stick, but the offensive production always finds a way to pop up on the box score.

Danilo gallinari struggled from the field on Friday, but still finished wth 19 points (5-for-15 shooting), nine rebounds, four assists and three triples.
Gallinari somewhat surprisingly stayed in Oklahoma City past the trade deadline but that could be good news for his fantasy value. Despite not having his best stroke going from deep (3-for-11), he got to the line six times and nailed all six. Keep Gallo in your lineups as long as he's healthy.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the Heat and Danilo Gallinari’s representatives were working on a contract extension overnight to help finalize the three-team trade with the Thunder and the Grizzlies.
The Heat are trying to preserve their salary cap for 2021 and even though they gave Andre Iguodala a two-year, $30M extension, the second year of the deal includes a team option. Not many specifics have leaked so far but it looks likely that Gallo will be heading to Miami. His value should remain the same as the Heat are lacking a stretch power forward and will probably insert him in their starting lineup immediately if the trade goes through.

Danilo Gallinari puts together a respectable line on Wednesday, chipping in 15 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3 PT), five rebounds, an assist and one steal.
Gallinari has put together a campaign worthy of a top-50 player thanks to his scoring. He'd be valuable to any roster needing threes, points and free throw shooting.
February 5, 2020, 8:13 pmDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Heat are targeting the Thunder's Danilo Gallinari and 'talks are ongoing'.
Gallinari would likely lose value if he is traded to Miami as they have more depth on the wings than Oklahoma City. He is a top-50 player per game in 9-cat this season and he shouldn't fall below top-75 value even if he is traded to a less favorable situation.
