Kevin Garnett scored 28 points on 10-of-19 shooting (8-of-10 from the foul line) with 14 rebounds, three steals, and five blocks in the Celtics' 83-80 closeout win over the Hawks on Thursday.

Garnett hasn't received nearly enough credit for the season he has had in both fantasy and reality, and tonight he made big play after big play to send the Hawks fishing. Rajon Rondo put up 14 points with eight assists, and Paul Pierce added 18 points with five rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and a block. Ray Allen (ankle) hit just 1-of-7 shots (all threes) and missed a key free throw late -- and he'll need to step up his game if the Celtics have any designs on a championship.

Marvin Williams (right big toe contusion) has returned on Monday vs. the Wizards.

He briefly left the game and went back to the locker room, but he returned to the bench moments later and quickly checked back into the game. We'll have an update after the game, but this sounds very minor. Frank Kaminsky will benefit if this issue lingers.

Steven Adams (concussion) will play on Monday vs. the Jazz.

He returns just in time to face Rudy Gobert. The matchup is brutal, but season-long owners can activate Adams in lineups after a two-game absence. Barring a surprise, Jerami Grant will return to the bench with Adams back in action.
Jan 23 - 7:41 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will start in place of David Lee on Monday vs. the Nets.

It makes sense. The Spurs will need Dedmon's defense against Brook Lopez and this move should keep Lee somewhat fresh for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors. Lee still looks like the better pickup in standard leagues after coming off two straight double-doubles, but Dedmon is worth keeping an eye on if you're searching the wire for blocks.

Kyle Anderson will start at small forward in place of the resting Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard will be back on Tuesday vs. Toronto, so Anderson is not a viable fantasy pickup. In nine previous starts this season, Anderson averaged 3.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steal. We should see a heavy dose of Jonathon Simmons as well.
Jan 23 - 7:29 PM

C.J. Miles will start in place of Glenn Robinson III on Monday vs. the Knicks.

The Pacers have lost two straight games and coach Nate McMillan wants to shake things up. Miles has been held to single-digit points in his last four games, but maybe the move into the first unit will get him going. Put him on your radar if you need 3-pointers.
Jan 23 - 7:23 PM

Jon Leuer is starting on Monday vs. the Hornets, sending Tobias Harris back to the bench.

With Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) healthy again, this will be the Pistons' preferred starting lineup going forward. Leuer's numbers in the first unit are actually worse than his numbers as a reserve, so he's just a low-end pickup. As for Harris, his value will be fine no matter what.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) is starting as expected on Monday vs. the Kings.

He made it through pre-game warmups just fine and there are no indications that he will be limited tonight. Season-long owners can activate KCP in lineups, but keep in mind that the Pistons only play twice in Week 14. Reggie Bullock will return to the bench and Stanley Johnson will lose most of his value as well.
Jan 23 - 7:17 PM

Anthony Davis (quad) has been officially ruled out for Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

Coach Alvin Gentry said on Sunday that he expected Davis to play, but he changed his tune during the pre-game media session in which he called him doubtful. The injury is "basically a charley horse" according to Gentry, but the Pelicans always treat their franchise player with kid gloves. Terrence Jones looks like a strong play in all formats tonight.

Alvin Gentry doesn't anticipate Anthony Davis (quad) being able to play Monday vs. Cleveland.

Gentry hasn't yet officially ruled him out, calling AD a game-time call, but he acknowledged that he doesn't expect Davis to take the court tonight. If Davis is forced to the sidelines, Terrence Jones would move into the starting lineup, and he'd make for an intriguing DFS play. Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday will also shoulder the offensive burden if Davis is out. Stay tuned.
Jan 23 - 6:35 PM

Kawhi Leonard (hand, Nets) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

He's resting for "precautionary" reasons against the worst team in the NBA, so Leonard's owners can expect to have him back for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors. With Leonard out, expect to see a lot of Jonathon Simmons and Kyle Anderson at the three.
Jan 23 - 6:33 PM

Miles Plumlee is starting in place of John Henson on Monday vs. the Rockets.

You just have to laugh at this point as coach Jason Kidd is up to his old tricks. The Bucks have lost five games in a row, but moving Plumlee back into the first unit over Henson and Greg Monroe is a crime. The $52 million Plumlee is averaging 2.3 points and 1.4 rebounds this season and is not a fantasy pickup.
