Kevin Seraphin exploded for 16 points, five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block on 8-of-10 shooting in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

We have no idea why Seraphin isn't getting more minutes with Nene out for the Wizards, but he finally played well tonight after struggling over his previous three games. There's no guarantee he'll play well in the next one, and he's not likely to hit 8-of-10 shots, but if you recently took a flier on Andre Drummond, Seraphin looks like a better short-term option at this point.

Cory Joseph scored a career-high 33 points in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

Starting in place of the resting Kyle Lowry, Joseph shattered his previous career high of 20 points set back in 2014. He hit 15-of-22 shots from the field with four rebounds, four assists and one triple in 37 minutes, as the Nets' young backcourt had no answer for him. Lowry is expected to return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers, but remember this performance from CoJo the next time Lowry gets a night off.

DeMar DeRozan went off for 36 points on 13-of-28 shooting in Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Nets.

Kyle Lowry (rest) got the night off and DeRozan's usage rate climbs from 31.7 to 41.5 with Lowry off the court, so it's no surprise that he feasted on the Nets. He added 11 rebounds, six assists and one steal, hitting all 10 of his free throws. He didn't even attempt a 3-pointer, but that only makes this line even more impressive. Just make sure he's active for Wednesday's matchup vs. the 76ers on the second night of a back-to-back set.

Brandon Ingram will start on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Luol Deng (wrist) is considered out indefinitely, so the rookie is looking at a hefty workload going forward. As a starter this season, Ingram has posted averages of 9.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.6 blocks and 0.7 triples in 11 games. We'll let you know how he fares tonight.

Brook Lopez scored 28 points in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, but appeared to roll his right ankle in the fourth quarter.

Lopez had a slight limp on the next couple plays, but he was moving better and better as the fourth quarter progressed. There's a chance that his ankle will swell up on him overnight, but luckily he gets a few days of rest before Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. Lopez added eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks on 11-of-23 shooting from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. If you're in a deep league, handcuffing him with Justin Hamilton isn't a bad idea. For what it's worth, Lopez said he felt "fine" after the game.

Caris LeVert scored 14 points with four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes in Tuesdays 119-109 loss to the Raptors.

The rookie struggled with foul trouble in the first half, but came out firing in the third quarter with a couple treys. He finished 6-of-8 from the field with one turnover, and coach Kenny Atkinson wasn't hesitant to put him on DeMar DeRozan on the defensive end. He's been great in limited minutes, but it feels like it's just a matter of time before he takes Joe Harris' spot in the first unit. LeVert looks like a solid stash for the second half of the season on a Nets' team that should prioritize player development. For what it's worth, LeVert led the team with a +/- rating of +9 in the double-digit loss.

Luol Deng will not play on Tuesday due to a sprained right wrist and will be out indefinitely.

This came out of nowhere, but he apparently suffered the injury two days ago and he was sporting a huge wrap on his wrist prior to being ruled out. Look for Brandon Ingram to get some extra run in his absence, while Thomas Robinson could also see a small boost. Deng has a history of wrist problems so it will be interesting to see how long this one keeps him out.
Jan 17 - 9:27 PM

Will Barton (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and he's going to draw the start.

He was listed as probable, but he's looking at a lot of minutes in the absence of Gary Harris (ankle), making him a popular play in DFS. The Nuggets play three more times this week after tonight, so pick Barton up if he's available.
Jan 17 - 9:19 PM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Will Barton (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Both players were listed as probable, but they are ready to roll in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Get them active and check back after the game for an update.
Jan 17 - 9:18 PM

Eric Gordon suffered a lower right leg injury of some sort on Tuesday and went to the locker room, but returned a short time later.

He likely either aggravated his toe injury or suffered a sprained ankle, but whatever the case, he had it taped back up and is back in the game. He's having a tough night, currently sitting on seven points on 3-of-11 shooting.
Jan 17 - 9:09 PM

Lucas Nogueira (blurred vision) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

He has blurred vision in his left eye and will be re-evaluated again after the game. He was also being evaluated for a concussion, but we should know more about that soon. Paskal Siakam started the second half and Jakop Poeltl could play a bit more as well. Bebe finished with three points (a trey) and two rebounds in seven minutes. There are no great speculative pickups here.
Jan 17 - 8:50 PM

Raymond Felton is looking at a bump in minutes with Chris Paul (thumb surgery) out for the next 6-8 weeks.

Felton started the second half of Monday's game and looked great with 15 points on 7-of-7 shooting with six assists, three rebounds, one block, one steal and two turnovers in 27 minutes, and he averaged 10.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.7 triples in six previous starts this season. He's likely going to take over the starting role in Los Angeles and looks like a strong pickup in standard leagues. Austin Rivers also looks like a great pickup.
