The Spurs officially re-signed G Patty Mills on Friday.

Per team policy, contract details were not released, but Mills will receive a two-year deal with the second season being a team option. In 16 games (three starts), Mills averaged 10.3 points, 2.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 16.3 minutes, but really showed his upside in the last two games of the season with the Spurs sitting most of their starters. Mills set a career-high with 27 points on April 25th, only to surpass it the following night with 34 points and a career-high 12 assists against the sieve-like Suns and Warriors. Mills will be a backup to Tony Parker next season, so unless Parker's eye injury lingers, Mills will not have much fantasy relevance.

D'Angelo Russell (knee) said he expects to play Friday vs. Miami and that he has not been given any minutes limit.

Russell, who has not played since November 11th, is on track to make his long-awaited return to the Nets lineup. It's surprising that he claimed he won't have a minutes limit, considering how careful Brooklyn tends to be regarding injuries. Thus, it's safe to assume he will log fewer than 30 minutes in his first game back. Coach Kenny Atkinson should shed some light on that subject when he speaks with the media later today.

Marc Gasol (illness) went through shootaround and is expected to play Friday vs. the Kings.

Gasol sat out Wednesday's victory over the Knicks but is on track to return to the lineup Friday evening. Deyonta Davis, who started in place of Gasol, will get bumped back to the bench. Gasol is averaging 18.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.4 treys per game this season.

The Hornets have made Kemba Walker available in trade discussions, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Charlotte is in 11th place in the East, despite having a payroll north of $115 million. Walker is the team's best player, but they need to shake up the roster and including Walker in a trade is the only way to get another team to swallow one (or two) of the undesirable contracts on the Hornets' books. We're less than three weeks away from the February deadline, so we'll keep a close eye on this situation going forward.

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 26 points during a 100-86 win over the Pacers on Thursday, adding five rebounds, eight assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

It's safe to say he's back as he's driving more and getting to the line more frequently, too. Since his return on Jan. 10, Lillard averaged 26.0 points, 4.6 boards, 7.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 treys on 47.8 percent from the field and 88.6 percent from the line -- 7.0 attempts per game from the charity stripe, too. His fantasy owners can probably expect him to flirt with top-10 value the rest of the way, especially with the Blazers in the thick of the playoff race.

Jusuf Nurkic scored 19 points with 17 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

It's a much-needed Nurk Alert after two terrible games in favorable matchups against the Suns and Wolves, averaging just 8.5 points, 6.0 boards and 1.0 blocks in 21.0 minutes per game. On the positive side, Nurkic is finally making his shots from the field at 52.0 percent from the field this month before his 8-of-14 tonight (57.1 percent). He still has some major work to do to meet his ADP price, but things are looking up right now.

Shabazz Napier scored 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

Coach Terry Stotts said he was going to try to get Napier more minutes and he kept his word. We've seen the Blazers go with more Napier before and he was able to get to minutes in the upper 20s even when Dame Lillard was healthy back in a late-November stretch. Napier probably won't be a difference-making add in most leagues, but give him a look if you need a point guard.

James Harden (hamstring) returned on Thursday against the Wolves, making 3-of-15 from the field for 10 points with two rebounds, seven assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He was expected to play 24-25 minutes and didn't quite look like himself, which is expected after missing the last seven games. Harden's stints were shortened as he had his lightest first-quarter playing time in any game over of the last two seasons. Coach Mike D'Antoni even called Harden "rusty" during his in-game interview to start the fourth. Rust aside, it won't be long until Harden is posting massive numbers.
Jan 19 - 12:11 AM

Eric Gordon scored a team-high 30 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and seven 3-pointers against the Wolves on Thursday.

It was the seventh time he's led the Rockets in scoring this year and he hit a buzzer-beating heave to cap a strong third. He was able to replace James Harden's rough night and may have also benefitted from Harden being limited in his return. Gordon's numbers have been a little worse when both Harden and Chris Paul are 100 percent, so games like this one will be few and far between going forward now that both studs are back. He's a sell-high player again.

Karl-Anthony Towns went off during a 116-98 loss to the Rockets on Thursday, scoring 22 points with 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals, five blocks, no turnovers and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He was 10-of-19 from the field and made just 1-of-7 from deep, so it was offensive domination inside for KAT. Towns continues to lead the NBA in double-doubles while he's steadily climbing in blocks, tying for fourth in the NBA for total swats on the season. Thanks to his durability, KAT currently sits at No. 1 for total value in nine-category leagues so far this season.

LeBron James scored 16 points with five rebounds, six assists, one steal, six turnovers and one foul in 35 minutes against the Magic during a 104-103 win.

He had one of the most ridiculous passes you'll ever see as he did a no-look, behind-the-back, nutmeg pass for a layup (video in link below). Besides that, James didn't play well with all those turnovers, making 2-of-8 from the line, and lots of mistakes. The Cavs almost blew this game and almost dropped their fifth straight, and LeBron commented on that after the game. "We're in Strugglesville," he said. In other news, LeBron was named an All-Star captain today.
Jan 18 - 10:48 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 17 points during a 104-103 loss to the Cavs on Thursday, adding 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He did not start the second half, but he came in after just one minute into the third quarter -- you can feel free to guess why. Gordon has really struggled with his jumper since his return from injury on Dec. 28, making just 28.7 percent of his 115 attempts, which explains why he's made just 39.2 percent from the field over those 10. Either way, Gordon continues to fill it up and he should be able to climb into the mid-40s for FG% soon enough.
