Ben Simmons had 16 points, eight rebounds (four offensive), eight assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes during Sunday's loss in D.C.

Simmons' versatility continues to impress Sixers fans, fantasy owners, and his own teammates and coaches. "It’s staggering the distance he can cover on limited dribbles," said coach Brett Brown. Simmons isn't bashful about his unique skill-set, either, saying recently, "I’m 6-10, I can pass the ball, I’m fast, I’m strong, I’m quick." If you ignore his 56.7% free-throw shooting, he's leading the field for rookie fantasy value ahead of fellow ROY candidate Donovan Mitchell.

Amir Johnson returned from a DNP-CD to finish Sunday's game with five points, five rebounds and one steal in 12 minutes.

It's unclear whether Johnson's absence on Saturday was a precaution in the first half of a back-to-back set, or the Sixers were experimenting with their frontcourt rotations. Trevor Booker logged 23 minutes on Saturday but only nine minutes tonight, and the rotation gets even murkier with Ersan Ilyasova reportedly set to sign with Philly this week. Suffice to say, fantasy owners shouldn't put their faith in Johnson, Booker or Richaun Holmes at any league depth.

The Sixers' seven-game win streak ended on Sunday, with J.J. Redick contributing just six points on 2-of-10 shooting, with four assists, two 3-pointers, one rebound and one steal.

Redick turned it over three times in 30 minutes tonight, and eventually checked out with 2:02 remaining and his team down by 15 points. He certainly wasn't alone in his struggles, as Philly shot 36.0% as a team including Dario Saric's 5-of-17 shooting dud. Tired legs may have been a factor in the second of back-to-back games, but they don't play consecutive games again until Mar. 15/16.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol had his left knee wrapped after Sunday's game, though he said it was "nothing serious."

Gasol appeared to tweak his knee during the game and although he dismissed concerns, the Spurs will obviously err on the side of caution here. San Antonio only plays twice this week, beginning Wednesday vs. the visiting Pelicans, so maybe the two days of rest will be enough for Pau to fully recover. Check back for updates in the next 48 hours.

Stephen Curry missed Sunday's practice for personal reasons, but he'll be ready to go vs. the Knicks on Monday.

Nothing about this situation is concerning, and owners should leave Curry locked into all active lineups for the upcoming three-game week.

Jordan Bell (left ankle inflammation) is questionable to play vs. the Knicks on Monday.

Bell hasn't played since Jan. 15 and the Warriors aren't likely to play him many minutes in his first game back. That makes him a very risky DFS and streaming play even if he is cleared to go on Monday, but deep-league owners should already be monitoring him as a potential pickup.
Feb 25 - 8:29 PM

Jordan Clarkson hit 7-of-14 shots for 17 points on Sunday, going 3-of-7 from deep with two rebounds and three turnovers.

The Cavs reportedly feel Clarkson is "a more than respectable catch-and-shoot player," and that his percentages will improve with more plays created for him. He's shooting just 36.8% on catch-and-shoots this season, but that does include a solid 37.6% mark from downtown. Fantasy owners stand to benefit if he's going one-on-one less often, so it's good news that the Cavs want to increase his catch-and-shoot attempts.
Feb 25 - 7:12 PM

Larry Nance Jr. logged only 15 minutes on Sunday, but he still picked up four points (1-of-1 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks.

All of Nance's assists came in the second quarter, which tied his career-high for a single quarter. Cleveland is still 4-2 since overhauling their roster at the deadline, and Nance has proven to be a great fit coming off the bench -- the low playing time tonight was partly due to foul trouble. He faces an eventual threat from Kevin Love (hand), but for now he's a safe play in 12-team leagues and deeper.
