Nikola Pekovic (ankle) said he "hopes" to play on Friday.

Pek was able to run on Thursday but admitted that he will be in pain "probably for a while," and the Wolves' training staff will probably have the final word on his status. Greg Stiemsma, who was quiet on Wednesday, and would likely get another start if Pek is forced to sit again.

Milos Teodosic had a nice all-around game on Wednesday with 15 points, five assists, four rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

Better yet, the veteran 'rookie' made 5-of-9 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws. He's been dogged by inefficiency (37.9% FGs, 78.6% FTs) and poor defensive stats (0.4 steals, 0.2 blocks), so it was nice to see him address those concerns tonight. Let's see if he can do it again on Saturday (at Utah) and Monday (vs. Minnesota).

George Hill filled up the stat sheet on Wednesday with 20 points, five assists, four rebounds, four 3-pointers, three steals and zero turnovers in 37 minutes.

He made 6-of-10 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs tonight, marking perhaps his most complete fantasy outing with the Kings. This was Hill's fourth game all season with 20+ points and the minutes were just shy of his season-high, but there's no real cause for excitement. Sacramento is starting to rest veterans and Hill is an obvious candidate for DNP-CDs -- at age 31 he's the fourth-oldest player on the team. Enjoy the production while you can.

Bogdan Bogdanovic went off for a career-high 25 points on 9-of-11 shooting on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, two assists, one steal and a flawless 6-of-6 mark from downtown.

He played 39 minutes and you should double-check that he's not available in your leagues. The Kings will rest 2-3 veterans every game and Bogdanovic is one of the big winners here, as the 25-year-old is more polished than most rookies thanks to years of pro experience overseas. The league's GMs ranked him one of the summer's "most underrated player acquisitions" before the season began, and we're starting to see why.

Willie Cauley-Stein scored a season-high-tying 26 points on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-18 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

WCS played 37 minutes tonight and he's now averaging 36.7 minutes in the Kings' past three games. His fantasy owners have to be thrilled that Sacramento is turning him loose in mid-January, rather than waiting until the All-Star break. With multiple veterans resting every night, Cauley-Stein's rest-of-season outlook is fantastic.

Rodney Hood lit up for 25 points vs. Sacramento on Wednesday, making 9-of-16 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with four 3-pointers, eight rebounds and two assists.

Hood also had two steals without a turnover tonight, and it's encouraging to see him chip in across the board -- he's averaging a mere 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.2 blocks this season. Thabo Sefolosha (knee surgery) is done for the season, which leaves 20+ minutes available on the wings, so it's likely Hood will absorb some of that -- he played 31 minutes tonight.

Hassan Whiteside busted out for season-highs 27 points and six blocks during a 106-101 win over the Bucks on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds and one turnover.

He made 10-of-12 from the field in arguably his best game of the year. Whiteside has really rounded into form over his last five games, averaging 16.0 points, 12.2 boards and 3.6 blocks on 60.8 percent from the field and 81.8 percent from the line. After the Wednesday win, Whiteside did say he was sick for the past couple days, but that may have been referring to a bad loss to the Bulls on Monday. Whatever the case, his fantasy owners should finally have that sour taste out of their mouths from that lingering knee injury.

Donovan Mitchell was sensational throughout Wednesday's road win in Sacramento, scoring 34 points on 14-of-19 shooting with three assists, three steals, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

Mitchell also hit 5-of-7 free throws, with three turnovers in 34 minutes. He's incredibly polished for a 21-year-old rookie and shows no signs of tiring despite averaging 31.4 minutes in a featured role. If you have any doubts, click on the link below for a high-flying dunk when he basically went 1-of-5 vs. the Kings' defense. Whether or not the No. 10 seed Jazz have playoff hopes, Mitchell is locked into a huge role over Utah's final 37 games.
Jan 18 - 1:13 AM

Klay Thompson torched the Bulls during a 119-112 win on Wednesday, making 12-of-22 from the field for a season-high 38 points with four rebounds, two assists and seven 3-pointers.

Stephen Curry also dropped 30, so coach Steve Kerr summed up this night for the Warriors. "Old school Splash Brothers night," Kerr said to describe this win. The Warriors have now won 14 straight games on the road and they'll get a tough test in Houston on Saturday night. Thompson is starting to get hot again and he's played 35 minutes in each of his last four games.
Jan 18 - 12:42 AM

Carmelo Anthony lit up the Lakers for a game-high 27 points on Wednesday, going 10-of-15 from the field with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

Melo's altered role in OKC has led to some swings in his fantasy value, but he's settling in as a designated catch-and-shoot guy -- he was slumping from the field, so it was nice to see him find a groove tonight. He'll look to keep it going when the Thunder seek their fourth straight win vs. the visiting Cavs on Saturday.
Jan 18 - 12:40 AM

Stephen Curry scored 30 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and six 3-pointers against the Bulls on Wednesday.

It was the 11th time the Warriors had both Curry and Klay Thompson each score 30-plus points in a game, and of course they're 11-0 in those instances. Curry exploded to start the third with 11 points in the first six-plus minutes to start that frame, which led to GSW taking the third by a 32-12 advantage. Curry has been in one of his unfair modes since returning from injury last month, posting a 30.6 usage rate and a 76.7 TS% in those eight. He's arguably the league's best player when he's playing like this.
Jan 18 - 12:36 AM

Brandon Ingram (sprained ankle) tweaked his ankle during Wednesday's game and sat out the final 15:31, but coach Luke Walton said he could have returned if needed.

OKC was cruising to a lopsided win tonight, so the Lakers played it safe by benching Ingram down the stretch. He finished with eight points, three assists and one rebound. The 20-year-old forward should be fine, but we'll consider him 'questionable' for Friday's home game vs. the Pacers. Check back for more information after Thursday's practice.
