Rajon Rondo handed out 20 assists in the Celtics' 106-100 loss to the Sixers on Friday, and also added 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting to go with two rebounds and two steals.

Rondo tied John Stockton for consecutive games with double digit assists in his 29th such outing tonight. Kevin Garnett scored 19 points with 10 boards and two steals, and Paul Pierce scored 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, five assists, and two steals in the loss.

Gorgui Dieng grabbed a season-high 18 rebounds in Monday's loss, and also chipped in with six points on 3-of-8 shooting, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 36 minutes.

Nikola Pekovic logged 30 minutes tonight and he's clearly not a deterrent to Dieng's value. Any chance of buying him low probably ended with this output.

Anthony Davis was all over the court against the 76ers during a 99-74 win on Monday, scoring 32 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and four blocks on 12-of-19 from the field.

Yeah, that toe injury from last week is behind him. In his last four games since that injury, Davis averaged 27.5 points, 10.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 2.5 blocks, 3.3 steals and 1.3 turnovers. He'll get the struggling Denver frontcourt at home on Wednesday, so he's likely looking at another 30-point game for that one.

K.J. McDaniels made 5-of-8 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line for 16 points during a 99-74 loss to the Pelicans on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He needed an efficient game on offense after some scoring issues before this one. In his previous 10, McDaniels made just 33.0 percent from the field and his jumper has just not been falling. He was better off the dribble tonight and had a couple cheap ones in transition, so it's hard to say he's figured it out. Still, he is worth owning in some standard leagues for his steals, blocks and treys.

Jerami Grant blocked four shots against the Pelicans on Monday with 10 points, two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He just keeps putting up numbers. Grant has been used at both forward spots and he's turned into the top second-unit forward for the 76ers right now. He was not a stat-stuffer in college, but he's pouring it on in the big leagues. In his last five, Grant averaged 9.2 points, 2.6 boards, 1.4 assists, 2.4 blocks and 1.2 treys. If you have dead weight and want to grab a rookie, give him a look.

Perry Jones will start for Kevin Durant on Monday.

He has been out of the rotation, but he'll slide into the starting unit tonight. While Jones did have a few big games earlier this year, that came with Russell Westbrook out of the lineup. He's still a very risky play tonight.
Jan 26 - 7:28 PM

Kevin Durant (toe) will not play against the Wolves on Monday.

He suffered the injury in Cleveland on Sunday and it's being called a left great toe sprain. Durant went through warmups, but there was too much soreness and he decided he'll sit. It's anyone's guess if he'll play on Wednesday and the Thunder do only have three games this week. It'll be Russell Westbrook running the show with a host of others stepping up. Expect Dion Waiters and Anthony Morrow to benefit the most. Perry Jones may start, though. It's worth mentioning KD needed surgery on his right foot.
Jan 26 - 7:06 PM

Steven Adams (head) is expected to start against the Wolves on Monday.

He had migraines on Sunday and missed that game, but he'll be back tonight. Adams was playing well before his head issue and he should be able to resume his normal role. His fantasy value has been outside the top 200 in standard leagues over the past month.
Jan 26 - 6:29 PM

Tony Allen (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Monday.

He has a sprained ankle and it's not serious, but the Grizzlies don't need him as much now that Jeff Green is around. Expect Green and Courtney Lee to play a little more tonight. Additionally, Victor Oladipo has a better matchup.
Jan 26 - 6:26 PM

Kemba Walker will have surgery on a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee and is out indefinitely.

The team has not provided a specific timetable, but usually surgery on a torn lateral meniscus requires 6-8 weeks on the sidelines. That means we might no see Walker on the court until the middle of March and perhaps later. Fantasy owners are going to have to weigh their options on stashing Walker for that long. Brian Roberts should be picked up just about everywhere while Lance Stephenson and Gary Neal pick up some extra value, too.

Nick Young sprained his right ankle in practice on Monday and is questionable to play against the Wizards on Tuesday.

It's strange timing with Young being benched on Sunday night because coach Byron Scott said Young looked like he "didn't want to be here." He's probably a little closer to doubtful, but his owners will want to check back tomorrow for an update. If he's out, Wayne Ellington, Jeremy Lin and Wes Johnson benefit most.
Jan 26 - 3:34 PM

Kemba Walker (knee) is leaning towards undergoing surgery on his left knee due to meniscus damage.

He had a meniscus injury back in high school and it's been a problem for him in the past couple weeks. The surgery would cost him six weeks of playing time, which means he would be looking at a return in mid-March. If he does opt to have the surgery, Brian Roberts would get the start and should be owned in all standard leagues. Lance Stephenson should run the offense more and have a higher ceiling in fantasy leagues.
