Al Jefferson is expected to play on Friday after missing practice time due to a stomach virus.

It sounds like he's a little weak, but is also good to go for tonight against the Nuggets. Make sure he's back in your lineup.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will miss Milwaukee's next two games to "manage soreness in his right knee."

The Bucks released a statement Saturday morning which explained: "By not playing in Saturday’s game at Philadelphia and Monday’s home game vs. Phoenix, Antetokounmpo will have eight days without playing in a game, using that time to receive treatment." Giannis has previously missed two games this season due to the same issue. He plans to return to game action on next Friday (Jan. 26) vs. Brooklyn. Tony Snell will likely be re-inserted into the starting lineup, but the primary beneficiaries of Antetokounmpo's absence will be Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe.

Tim Hardaway Jr. lit up the Jazz during a 117-115 win on Friday, making 11-of-17 from the field for 31 points with five rebounds, three assists and six 3-pointers in just 27 minutes.

Yeah, he got a big contract this summer, but Hardaway Jr. has performed while healthy. THJ did miss two clutch free throws with 33 seconds left in the fourth, but did ice the game with two free throw makes with nine second left. The Knicks will get another back-to-back set on Jan. 25-26 and another on the 30th and 31st, so his owners will have to make sure he's good for those. He needs to be owned in all leagues regardless.

Jordan Clarkson finished with a season-high 33 points, seven assists and seven rebounds in Friday's 99-86 win against the Pacers.

Clarkson finished 14-of-19 from the field, including 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. It Clarkson's fifth-career 30-point game, and his first of the season. The Lakers needed every but of it, as they had a dismal 2-of-14 night from the free-throw stripe. It was the worst percentage from the stripe by a winning NBA team since 1963. Five players took at least one free throw without a make, and only Clarkson was 2-of-3 to hit.

Rudy Gobert (knee) turned in a gem during his return to the lineup on Friday, scoring a season-high 23 points with 14 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 30 minutes during a 117-115 loss to the Knicks.

He was expected to play around 24 minutes, but this game was close in a game the Jazz really needed before a road trip that starts on Monday. Gobert started slow and did only make 9-of-15 from the line, but he showed some rapport with Donovan Mitchell. He has been a major letdown so far this season, so hopefully he can hang more lines like this one. His owners may want to make sure he's a go for Saturday in a back-to-back set against the Clippers.

Rodney Hood made a start against the Knicks on Friday, scoring 18 points with five rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

His move to the starting lineup wasn't the biggest news on Hood for the night. Marc Stein of the New York Times reported that "there is a growing belief in league personnel circles" that the Jazz could trade Hood before the deadline. He seems to be fairly comfortable with the Jazz no matter where his playing time comes from, so his owners should want him to stay put. Although, he did have a minor leg issue late in the game, so keep an eye out on that for the oft-injured wing.

Devin Booker had it going again during a 108-100 win over the Nuggets on Friday, scoring 30 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

This being his 35th 30-point game of his career is no surprise, but Booker's improvement this year has been how he's does so much more than score. This was seventh 30-5-5 stat line on the year and he's been more consistent in efficiency and steals. Booker has also been a superstar scorer on the road this season, posting a 31.8 usage rate and a 60.6 TS%. He has arrived.
Jan 20 - 12:26 AM

T.J. Warren returned against the Nuggets on Friday, scoring 25 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 34 minutes.

He looked great on both ends of the floor, so the Suns were likely careful with his back injury. The Suns are also very successful when Warren goes off with a 10-1 record in the 11 games he's scored at least 25. He's been on fire over his last seven active games with 23.9 points per outing thanks to making 36-of-48 (75 percent) at the rim over that span. They don't call him Tony Buckets for nothing.
Jan 20 - 12:19 AM

Jamal Murray scored 30 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers during a 108-100 loss to the Suns on Friday.

He made 10-of-17 from the field with two emphatic jams in the third and also hit all five free throws. Murray did also foul out for the first time in his NBA career due to T.J. Warren getting some favorable calls. The second-year guard has been extremely durable in his NBA career and missed his first game due to a concussion, but getting back out there is another positive for Murray in his breakout campaign. He should flirt with early-round value going forward.
Jan 20 - 12:00 AM

DeMarre Carroll matched his career-high 26 points during a 101-95 win over the Heat on Friday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

It's his fifth 20-point game of the season and he's also scored in double figures for six straight. Carroll did have a mild tweak to his right knee, but he obviously looked fine. He also closed as the power forward in this game, which will be important for him because of D'Angelo Russell getting in the mix to take wing minutes away. The needle doesn't move too much on Carroll here because DAR's return may hurt his playing time, so he's more of a hold than anything else.
Jan 19 - 11:32 PM

Ish Smith posted 15 points and seven assists over 35 minutes in Friday's 122-112 loss against the Wizards.

Smith bounced back nicely with a solid 7-of-11 shooting night after turning in an ugly 1-of-12 performance on Wednesday in Toronto. There's something about the home cooking that he likes, as Smith is 39-of-73 (53.4 percent) from the floor over his past six home contests, and 23-of-62 (37.1 percent) from the field across his past six on the road. The good news for Smith's fantasy owners and DFS players is that this was the first game of a four-game homestand through Jan. 27, and nine of his next 10 are at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, too.
Jan 19 - 11:32 PM

Ben McLemore came out of nowhere to score 21 points against the Kings on Friday, hitting 6-of-13 shots and 6-of-6 free throws.

Talk about a revenge game. McLemore was a DNP-CD in his previous two games and played a total of 15 minutes in January prior to tonight, but the Grizzlies let him have some fun against his former team. He added two rebounds, two assists, one steal and three triples in 27 minutes, and while he gave the coaching staff something to think about, fantasy owners can ignore him unless he earns a permanent spot in the rotation.
