The Mavericks have officially signed rookie guard Jared Cunningham.

Cunningham, the No. 24 overall pick this year, has been sidelined during Summer League due to a strained hamstring. In his final year at college he averaged 17.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.5 steals per game -- he's worth watching, but shouldn't be drafted in fantasy leagues.

Carmelo Anthony carried the Knicks during a 110-109 win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 37 points with six rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He hit a jumper over Robert Covington with 0.3 seconds left to give the Knicks the lead for good. After the game, Melo sounded very confident and said he had just enough space to get the look he needed (video in link below). Anthony is a better shooter when he's not next to Kristaps Porzingis with better percentages in mid-range, the left corner, right corner and above the break compared to when he's not with KP. Regardless, Melo should be firing away as long as he's active.

Hassan Whiteside had a field day against the Pacers on Saturday with 22 points, 17 rebounds, one steal and one block.

He now has 15 games with 20+ points and 15+ rebounds, second to only Anthony Davis (18) this season. Whiteside finished 6-of-12 from the field and 10-of-13 from the line, bumping his free throw percentage up to 57.8 percent on the season. That's the only thing holding him back in standard leagues, but he's still returning third-round value. His owners should just be relieved that the shut-down risk has gone way done with the Heat winning 16 out of their last 18 games.

James Johnson nearly triple-doubled in Saturday's 113-95 win over the Pacers with 15 points, seven rebounds and eight assists in 29 minutes.

What a way to bounce back after scoring just two points on Friday. Johnson also stuffed the stat sheet with two blocks, two steals and two triples, shooting 6-of-14 from the field and 1-of-3 from the line with five turnovers. He's arguably the waiver wire pickup of the year and could have more minutes coming his way if backup center Willie Reed misses time with his right calf strain -- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra isn't afraid to use JJ as a small-ball five.

Dario Saric grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds during a 110-109 loss to the Knicks on Saturday, adding 19 points, five assists and one 3-pointer in a career-high 40 minutes.

That's four consecutive double-doubles and the seventh straight game with at least 18 points. Saric doesn't have a backup and the 76ers continue to run offense through him. Amazingly, he's still be efficient lately despite making just 5-of-29 (17.2 percent) from deep in his last five games to get him to 47.7 percent from the field overall. The Homie Dario looks like a league-winning type of asset going forward.

Jahlil Okafor scored a season-high 28 points against the Knicks on Saturday with 10 rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 29 minutes.

He made 11-of-19 from the field and all six from the line for a terrific scoring line. Okafor was coming off a rough game on Friday against the Wizards, but he's struggled against Marcin Gortat for basically his whole career. With Joel Embiid (knee) still in street clothes and possibly missing more than two games, maybe Okafor get start to get it going. While this might be his best game all year, he's still worth owning to see if he can keep it going.

Willie Reed has been diagnosed with a right calf strain.

He will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Pacers and will be re-evaluated on Sunday morning. He finished the game with four points, one rebound and one steal in 10 minutes. This diagnosis is good news, but he's not out of the woods yet and we'll know more about his status when the Heat run some tests on him Sunday. If he misses time, Hassan Whiteside will have a higher floor and James Johnson could play more minutes as the backup center.
Feb 25 - 10:31 PM

Terrence Ross showed why the Magic traded for him during a 105-86 win over the Hawks on Saturday, scoring 24 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

After a 4-of-17 dud on Thursday, Ross had it going big time with shooting touch. Ross has been living on his jump shot and actually hasn't made any shots at the rim in his two games with Orlando, which does spell trouble for his consistency from an efficiency standpoint -- only 11.7 percent of his shots come from within three feet on the season. Coach Frank Vogel has said he wants him to be aggressive and to score off the dribble, so expect more close shots to come. Ross should be owned in all standard leagues with his new opportunity.
Feb 25 - 10:02 PM

Stephen Curry is starting as expected on Saturday vs. the Nets.

He got the day off at Friday's practice because he has some general soreness and there was a slight concern that he would be rested tonight, but he will play and should be a usage rate monster with Kevin Durant (hand) on the shelf. Deploy Curry like you normally would.
Feb 25 - 9:47 PM

Paul George was ejected from Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

He picked up two technical fouls and was ejected with 8:49 left in the third quarter. George finishes the game with 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting with one rebound and one assist in 19 minutes. He's in no danger of being suspended for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.
Feb 25 - 9:37 PM

Frank Kaminsky scored a game-high 23 points during a 99-85 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding a career-high 13 rebounds with three assists, two steals and a career-high five 3-pointers.

He's been all the Hornets could've hoped for as a center. Ever since the Hornets got stomped in Oakland on Feb. 1, coach Steve Clifford has talked up how well Kaminsky has performed closer to the basket on defense. On offense, he's really hitting his stride lately, averaging 19.8 points, 7.6 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 steals and 3.0 treys in his last five. While he won't be this good, he has to be owned right now.
Feb 25 - 8:54 PM

Patrick McCaw is starting in place of Kevin Durant (hand) on Saturday vs. the Nets.

It sounds like the Warriors are simply being cautious with Durant against the weakest team in the NBA, so McCaw is just a streaming option in deeper leagues tonight. In three previous starts this season, the rookie averaged 10.0 points, 2.7 assists, 1.7 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.3 3-pointers.
