DeMarre Carroll scored a season-high 22 points with five rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

His minutes are way up in the last two with 33 against the Celtics on Monday. Carroll may start to see his minutes take a hit as Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's minutes ramp up. He could be worth a look in deeper leagues, but the Nets likely won't totally unleash him with minutes because of his injury history.

James Harden did his thing again during a 145-143 overtime loss to the Nets Wednesday, scoring a season-high 58 points with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block, four turnovers and five 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

He was 16-of-34 from the field with all of those buckets coming unassisted, and he wasn't assisted at all either in the 57-point game on Monday. Harden went 5-of-19 from deep as the Rockets set the record for most 3-point attempts in a game with 70 (!) in his tough loss. This was his 18th straight game with 30-plus points to tie him with Elgin Baylor for fifth-longest streak with only Wilt Chamberlain's four different streaks ahead of him. Harden also joins Wilt as the only players with consecutive 55-plus scoring games. He's on one of the most ridiculous scoring streaks and is not getting much help as he makes a case for MVP.

Al Horford scored a season-high 24 points on Wednesday, making 9-of-12 field goals and 3-of-3 free throws with seven rebounds, three 3-pointers and two blocks in 34 minutes.

That's the most points Horford has scored since Game 1 vs. the Sixers in the playoffs last season. He's playing just 27.8 minutes per game this season, but is still humming along with averages of 11.6 points (50.0% FGs, 73.7% FTs), 1.1 triples, 6.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.4 blocks and 0.8 steals. Owners in 9-cat leagues also benefit from his stingy 1.5 turnovers per game.

Kawhi Leonard posted 33 points (10-of-19 FGs, 11-of-11 FTs) with four rebounds, four steals and two assists in 37 minutes vs. Boston on Wednesday.

In his previous six games, Kawhi averaged 31.3 points on 57.8% shooting, 6.7 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 2.8 steals, 1.7 triples and 0.5 blocks. He made 7.3 free throws per game in that span and has been to the line 7.6 times per game this season, easily setting a new career high. He's also scored at least 20 points in 20 straight games, the longest stretch in the NBA this season and the longest for Toronto since Vince Carter (23 straight). He's an absolute beast.

Andre Drummond hit a layup to send Wednesday's game into overtime, finishing an eventual 120-115 win with 14 points, 22 rebounds, one assist and one block.

Drummond was 7-of-15 from the field but he didn't get to the free-throw line, which is a plus for fantasy owners. He also grabbed 11 of his boards on the offensive end, a bonus for owners with more unique league settings, and leads the league in that category -- the next-closest players are Clint Capela, Steven Adams, Tristan Thompson and Enes Kanter. He's been fantastic in all the right areas for owners.

Blake Griffin led the Pistons to a home win on Wednesday with 30 points, five assists, four rebounds and two blocks, making 11-of-18 FGs and 7-of-10 FTs.

Asked before the game about his team's postseason chances, Pistons coach Dwane Casey said, "We’re serious about being a playoff team ... [Wednesday] we’re looking at a team we’re in a dogfight with. How we come out tonight will determine a lot about who we are." His team proceeded to win an overtime game, led by key performances from Blake, Andre Drummond and the second unit, which bodes well for the team's veterans. Just keep an eye on the standings.

Nikola Vucevic had 24 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in a losing effort on Wednesday, shooting 11-of-22 from the field vs. Detroit.

Magic coach Steve Clifford said before the game that whether his team becomes 'buyers' or 'sellers' before the trade deadline "will depend on how we play." Fantasy owners relying on guys like Vucevic should be rooting for more victories to keep Orlando in the "buyers" camp, which would lead to more playing time and fewer DNPs for the team's productive veterans. Aaron Gordon (12 points, eight rebounds) is also in that category, but Vuc and D.J. Augustin (13 points, seven assists in 32 minutes) might be the players most vulnerable to late-season tanking.
Jan 16 - 10:08 PM

Damian Lillard (right hand) is available to play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He was questionable to play for this game, but not surprisingly Dame will be suiting up for this one. He plays through most injuries, and we'll see if this issue affects his shooting. He should be in all lineups and could go off against one of the worst defenses in the league.
Jan 16 - 9:16 PM

Rudy Gay (wrist) will start on Wednesday against the Mavs.

He's back after 10 days on the sidelines from a nagging wrist injury. It looked like Gay was able to play through his wrist injury back on Jan. 5, so the Spurs may have been cautious. His return means fewer minutes for Marco Belinelli, Patty Mills, Davis Bertans and Jakob Poeltl. Gay should be owned in all leagues.
Jan 16 - 7:19 PM

Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb, left knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

MRIs came back negative on Carter Jr.'s thumb and knee, and while he'll miss Thursday's game, he'll be re-evaluated on Friday and will be listed as day-to-day moving forward. It wouldn't be shocking to see him spend at least a few games on the sidelines, and while he's out we could see Bobby Portis move into the starting lineup, with more minutes falling to Robin Lopez, Cristiano Felicio and Jabari Parker.
Jan 16 - 7:11 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. (illness) is out Wednesday against the Spurs.

He is not going to be at the arena for this game after a report came out that he was out at lunch earlier today. Coach Rick Carlisle declined to comment about the trade rumors or if he talked to DSJ, as well. Multiple reports have said that the Magic are the most interested team in DSJ, so that could be a great landing spot for him. Reports also say he's likely to be dealt, but nothing is imminent. Jalen Brunson and Maxi Kleber will benefit with more playing time with Kleber having more value as a pickup. Brunson is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Jan 16 - 7:00 PM

Justin Holiday will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Holiday hasn't done much since landing in Memphis, but with Kyle Anderson (ankle) out for the next few weeks, there's a decent amount of opportunity in front of him. He could be someone to think about streaming in deep leagues tonight, although it's worth noting that the Bucks tend to be a tough matchup.
