Rodney Stuckey is not with Pistons in Philadelphia after developing flu-like symptoms.

The Pistons are back in Detroit on Friday to take on the Magic so stayed tuned to see if the bug passes through Stuckey's system by then. Kyle Singler will start in Stuckey's place. Corey Maggette (calf) will also return Wednesday and possibly eat up some of Stuckey's minutes.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will replace Jerryd Bayless (sore left wrist) in the Sixers starting lineup on Saturday vs. Milwaukee.

It is somewhat surprising that Sixers are starting TLC instead of T.J. McConnell. It likely has to do with the defensive assignment of guarding Milwaukee's Eric Bledsoe. However, both Luwawu-Cabarrot and McConnell will be asked to log heavy minutes, as Philly is without Bayless, J.J. Redick (leg), and Markelle Fultz (shoulder). Luwawu-Cabarrot has started one game previously this season. He finished with four points, one rebound and one assist over 23 minutes in that start.

Jerryd Bayless (sore left wrist) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Bayless missed six games back in November due to pain in this same wrist. Hopefully, the injury won't linger as long this time around. The Sixers are also missing J.J. Redick (left leg), so Philly's backcourt will have very little depth on Saturday. It sounds like Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot has been tabbed to slide into the starting lineup to replace Bayless. However, T.J. McConnell is arguably the more attractive streamer and DFS target on Saturday, as he'll log plenty of minutes off the bench.

Coach Jason Kidd said that Sterling Brown and Tony Snell will start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Malcolm Brogdon (personal) Saturday vs. the Sixers.

Snell has started 29 games for the Bucks this season. He's averaged 7.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 30.6 minutes over those 29 starts. Brogdon is attending to a personal family matter. The Bucks announced on Saturday that Antetokounmpo will miss Milwaukee's next two games to manage soreness in his right knee.

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 bit 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.
Jan 20 - 1:35 AM

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.
