Former Suns guard Zabian Dowdell has signed with the Turkish team Anadolu Efes Istanbul.

Dowdell played 24 games with Phoenix last year, averaging 5.0 points and 2.1 assists, but the arrival of Ronnie Price and Sebastian Telfair made him expendable.

After scoring a career-high 31 points on Saturday, Troy Daniels came off the Memphis bench on Monday to hit 10-of-20 shots, seven 3-pointers and 2-of-2 free throws for 29 points, two assists and nothing else, which would include only one turnover in 44 minutes.

Granted, this was a double-overtime affair, but this kid came out of nowhere and is killing it, scoring 29, 31, 19 and 19 points in each of his last four games, and has knocked down 20 3-pointers during that stretch, which is 5.0 per game! The Money Green light is ON and Daniels is killing it. But he could quickly fall back to earth once Chandler Parson and James Ennis are over their injuries, which may not happen anytime soon. While Daniels is likely to fade just as quickly as he appeared on the scene, he's worth grabbing right now. And if he does it again vs. the Sixers on Tuesday night, we may call him a must-own player until further notice.

Marc Gasol's crazy season continued on Monday when he had 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 11-of-25 shooting in 46 minutes of Monday's 110-108 double-overtime win against the Pelicans.

Gasol is insane right now, knocking down threes and flirting with a Russell Westbrook-like line tonight. Gasol, never known for assists or 3-pointers, has hit a three in all but three games this season, and has racked up 19 dimes over his last two games. He's returning third-round value right now, but that arrow appears to be pointing up after this one. And over his last five games? He's averaging 21.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.6 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting.
Dec 6 - 12:37 AM

Dwight Powell scored 15 points with seven rebounds in 32 minutes off the bench on Monday vs. Charlotte.

Powell has a huge opportunity in front of him to produce, as Andrew Bogut hyperextended his right knee in the first quarter and wasn't able to return. With Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles) out indefinitely, that means Powell and Salah Mejri will have to hold down the fort if Bogut misses time. Powell added a block and shot 7-of-11 from the field and looks like the better pickup after Mejri logged just eight minutes.
Dec 6 - 12:23 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 29 points on 10-of-21 shooting in Monday's 109-101 loss to the Hornets.

Harry B was everywhere, racking up seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples while hitting all seven of his free throws. With the Mavs banged up and possibly tanking, Barnes should be the best fantasy asset in Dallas the rest of the way as the clear focal point of the offense. He's returning top-60 value in standard leagues on the season with averages of 20.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 3-pointer on 45.9 percent shooting.
Dec 6 - 12:14 AM

Eric Gordon tweaked his ankle in Monday's 107-106 win over the Celtics, but he said he's "fine."

He expects to practice onTuesday and play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, but we will put him on the injury report to be safe. Gordon scored 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting in the win with two assists, one rebound, one block and four triples in 31 minutes. He's scored 18 or more points in five straight games and needs to be in all fantasy lineups while he's hot.
Dec 6 - 12:02 AM

Damian Lillard scored 30 points with seven assists in Monday's 112-110 win over the Bulls.

The Blazers are suddenly hot again with three straight wins over the Pacers, Heat and now the Bulls. Lillard hit 11-of-24 shots from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with four rebounds, two steals, two blocks and three triples in one of the lines of the night. He will draw a matchup with Matthew Dellavedova and the Bucks on Wednesday.
Dec 5 - 11:50 PM

Dwyane Wade will play on Tuesday vs. the Pistons.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set and Wade missed one game last week against Dallas (also a back-to-back), but the Bulls probably don't want to drop three straight games. Wade went off in the 112-110 loss to the Blazers on Monday, scoring 34 points on 11-of-23 shooting (11-of-13 FTs) with four rebounds, four assists, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes. He said he's expecting to play around 30-32 minutes vs. Detroit, but his value will take a slight hit with Rajon Rondo (suspension) back in the lineup.
Dec 5 - 11:25 PM

Andrew Bogut hyperextended his right knee on Monday vs. the Hornets, according to head coach Rick Carlisle.

X-rays came back negative and the injury isn't believed to be too serious, but the Mavs will be cautious since they don't have much to play for. Bogut finished scoreless on Monday with six rebounds in 10 minutes. Dwight Powell played 32 minutes with Bogut out and finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Salah Mejri only played eight minutes. Carlisle has started Mejri in the past when Bogut was on the shelf, so both players are on the fantasy radar with Powell offering more upside.
Dec 5 - 11:20 PM

Russell Westbrook hit 10-of-22 shots, 3-of-8 3-pointers and 9-of-14 free throws for 32 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists, a steal, a block and just four turnovers in Monday's tough 102-99 win at Atlanta.

The dude is just sick and has now triple-doubled in six straight games, the longest streak since Michael Jordan did it seven straight times in 1989. He has 11 of them on the season, is averaging a triple-double on the season and has led the Thunder to six straight wins. Maybe he'll run out of gas one day, but then again, maybe he won't. Jordan had 15 triple-doubles in that 1988-89 season and Westbrook is on pace to destroy that number, possibly before Christmas.
Dec 5 - 11:13 PM

Trevor Booker (illness) returned from a one-game absence in Monday's 118-113 loss to the Wizards and double-doubled with 14 points and 14 rebounds.

He didn't miss a beat, shooting 6-of-9 from the field with one assist, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers in 31 minutes. Booker has been a stud all season and his owners should be pumped that his minutes are safe following the news that the Rockets matched the Nets offer for restricted free agent Donatas Motiejunas.
Dec 5 - 11:04 PM

Paul Millsap returned from his hip injury on Monday and played well, racking up 24 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 8-of-14 shooting.

Finally. Millsap wasn't playing well before his injury and owners in weekly leagues had a tough decision to make with him. He came through tonight and looked like vintage Millsap, so hopefully he's over his injury and his knee is also feeling better. As for the Hawks, they are reeling, losers of seven straight games and 10 of their last 11.
