Brandon Rush injured his left knee and he is scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday.

He went down in a heap, tried to get up and walk it off, then had to lay back down from what looked to be agonizing pain. Recent reports from Ric Bucher have been optimistic, but there is nothing concrete. Harrison Barnes would see a sizable increase in minutes to make him a near must-add player, but owners shouldn't cut a player with value to make the speculative add. Stay tuned.

Jared Sullinger thrived in 30 minutes of action vs. the Clippers, posting 21 points on 10-of-15 shooting, 11 rebounds, seven assists and one steal without any turnovers.

Sullinger grabbed four of his boards on the offensive end and was nearly automatic from mid-range, a welcome sight for a guy whose offense has waxed and waned all season. He took advantage of extra playing time tonight with Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) getting hurt and Amir Johnson (back) limited, so owners shouldn't expect 30 minutes a night after the break.

Isaiah Thomas poured in 36 points with 11 assists to help Boston win in OT on Wednesday, connecting on 12-of-21 FGs and 11-of-12 FTs in an electric duel vs. Chris Paul.

Thomas went shot for shot with CP3 down the stretch, and he rounded out his fantasy line with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, one steal and only two turnovers in 40 minutes. It's another emphatic reminder why he made the All-Star team ahead of guys like Kemba Walker and Khris Middleton.

J.J. Redick shook off a minor ankle injury to finish Wednesday's overtime defeat with 27 points, two 3-pointers and three rebounds, making 9-of-14 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs in 38 minutes of action.

Redick's efficiency is remarkable and he's anchoring his fantasy value with lights-out shooting beyond the arc -- he's averaging 2.8 triples per game since Jan. 1, which ranks eighth during that span behind J.R. Smith, Paul George, Klye Lowry, James Harden, Damian Lillard and the Splash Brothers. His usage may take a slight hit when Blake Griffin gets back on the court, but that's the only knock on his rest-of-season outlook.

Chris Paul tied his season high with 35 points vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, adding 13 assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block in an OT loss in Boston.

The Clippers lost for only the third time in their past 15 road games, an incredible feat given the injuries they've endured. CP3 appeared to have a minor hand injury but he played through it and should have plenty of time to recuperate during the much-needed All-Star break -- it obviously didn't affect him tonight, as he drained 13-of-21 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs with three triples.
Feb 11 - 12:07 AM

Jahlil Okafor came up huge vs. the Kings on Wednesday, scoring 26 points on 11-of-18 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 39 minutes.

Okafor had some rookie moments defensively, and he earned Brett Brown's ire by failing to box out for a few rebounds, but the good easily outweighed the bad tonight. It must be noted that Nerlens Noel (knee) wasn't available tonight, gifting Okafor more minutes and touches in the paint -- the 39 minutes tied a season high set back on Nov. 14.
Feb 10 - 11:54 PM

Robert Covington lit up the Kings on Wednesday for a career-high 29 points with seven 3-pointers, while adding five rebounds and six steals in 32 minutes of action.

Covington did turn the ball over seven times but his owners can overlook that, and these are the games that make holding him worthwhile. RoCo's shot hasn't been falling lately but he's jacking up 6.2 triples over his past five games, and should maintain a steady 25-30 minute role the rest of the way. The good news for Philly's lottery odds is that that his efforts were squandered tonight, as the Sixers blew a double-digit lead in the fourth quarter.
Feb 10 - 11:52 PM

Taj Gibson (foot) said he's been playing through sore left ankle for awhile.

This is the same ankle he had surgery on back in the offseason. Gibson suffered a foot strain on Wednesday, which is likely due from the ankle injury and compensation. Gibson played through ankle pain last year and it backfired on him, so the Bulls might be careful here. It's not a bad idea to grab Bobby Portis until Taj is cleared to play.
Feb 10 - 11:47 PM

Evan Fournier drained 10-of-20 shots including three 3-pointers to finish Wednesday's game with a team-high 28 points, five assists, two rebounds and only one turnover in 42 minutes.

Tobias Harris (ankle) was out again tonight which shifted more opportunities to Fournier, who made the most of the situation with his highest-scoring game since Nov. 18. He drained a key 3-pointer to tie the game at 96-96 after blowing a big fourth-quarter lead, but the Magic couldn't answer a Kawhi Leonard jumper with less than a second on the clock. It's a tough way to head into the All-Star break.
Feb 10 - 11:18 PM

Tim Duncan (knee) returned on Wednesday after an eight-game absence, notching five points on 2-of-9 shooting with seven boards, five assists and three blocks in just 18 minutes.

It's somewhat surprising that the Spurs cleared Duncan to play one game before the All-Star break, but maybe they wanted him to enter the week-long break with some semblance of a rhythm. The bad news is that more DNPs are a given for the veteran, particularly during back-to-back sets, of which the Spurs have seven remaining.
Feb 10 - 11:14 PM

The Spurs won their sixth straight game on Wednesday, beating the Magic behind Kawhi Leonard's game-winning jumper -- he finished with 29 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

Kawhi's usage rate has hovered right around 25 percent this season, a wonderful development for his fantasy owners. He shot 12-of-19 from the field with three 3-pointers and is co-existing beautifully with LaMarcus Aldridge, as the two combined to score the Spurs' final 10 points tonight. The 24-year-old will be a perennial fantasy stud for the foreseeable future, and he's not just a roto guy -- he's posting top-15 value in Yahoo's default points leagues.
Feb 10 - 11:11 PM

Kevin Love (shoulder) said he won't miss any games due to his left shoulder contusion.

He said he only had a stinger, so it doesn't sound like anything is wrong structurally. Love should be close to 100 percent after the break, so his fantasy owners dodged a bullet here.
