Metta World Peace scored 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting (including five threes) with six rebounds, three assists, three steals, and one block in 33 minutes on Friday against the Suns.

There are a few reasons to think this is fluky, including the opposition and the fact that Steve Nash is out, but MWP has now scored in double-figures in 7-of-9 games on the year. During that time he has produced at a mid-round level, and should be owned in all formats and started in most while he's hot.

Danilo Gallinari (right ankle) is now considered questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Spurs.

He was listed as probable on Wednesday, so this is a concern. Gallinari has been on the injury report in his previous three games, but played 30, 40 and 39 minutes in those three contests. If he's unable to play, rookie Juan Hernangomez could see a sizable bump in minutes.

Wilson Chandler (personal) and Gary Harris (ankle) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

Chandler was listed as out, but now we have official confirmation. This is a tough blow for the Nuggets because Danilo Gallinari (ankle) was just downgraded to questionable. The Nuggets play two more times this week on Saturday and Sunday, so Chandler's owners should sit tight for now. Will Barton looks like a great DFS play and we could see more of rookie Juan Hernangomez. Chandler's absence also raises Kenneth Faried's floor, especially with Darrell Arthur (knee) out.

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the 76ers will take a "hard look" at Jrue Holiday.

The 76ers traded away Holiday to start "The Process" back in 2013, but he would be an interesting fit next to Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid in Philly. Holiday is set to become a free agent and several teams will be in the market for a PG including Philly, Orlando, New York and Sacramento, and the Pelicans are worried that he will walk this summer. It's not clear if the 76ers will entertain the idea of trading for Holiday when they can just wait until the summer to make him an offer, but this is something to keep an eye on as we approach the Feb. 23 deadline.

Kevin Love (back) was limited at the morning shootaround and remains questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Suns.

He was also limited at Wednesday's practice. Love was adamant after leaving Monday's game vs. the Warriors that he wouldn't miss any additional time, but he's shaping up to be a game-time call. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will be popular DFS plays if Love sits, while Channing Frye would likely draw the start in his absence.

Joakim Noah (ankle) is not expected to play on Thursday vs. the Wizards.

He's going to have an MRI on Thursday morning but it's a safe bet that he will miss his second straight game -- Noah was in so much pain on Wednesday that he didn't even try to warm up after his ankle swelled up on the plane. Kyle O'Quinn started in Noah's place on Wednesday, but flopped in a big way with just two points in 10 minutes. Willy Hernangomez scored 17 points off the bench with 11 rebounds in 20 minutes and Marshall Plumlee also had a nice game with five points, seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 20 minutes, but this is a situation for fantasy owners to avoid until someone separates themselves from the pack.

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) said he's "90 percent ready" and he is hopeful to play on Saturday vs. the Suns.

He hasn't been officially ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Wizards, but it sure sounds like he's not planning to play. Porzingis is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday morning, so his plans for Saturday could change too based on the results. "Still not there yet," Porzingis said. "I have to be really careful of how much I do and how explosive the movements are. If not I get a little pinch again in the heel down there where the Achilles starts." We should have an update this afternoon, but Mindaugas Kusminskas looks like a nice short-term pickup and he's coming off a 17-point effort on Wednesday.

DeMarcus Cousins posted his first triple-double of the season during a brutal 106-100 loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, scoring 25 points with 12 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, three blocks, nine turnovers and one 3-pointer.

This was a really, really bad loss for the Kings. They blew a 22-point lead in this game to put them on a three-game losing streak. Worse yet, Rudy Gay (Achilles) is expected to miss the rest of the season. In his minutes not next to Gay, Cousins has a whopping 39.9 usage rate and actually has better efficiency, too. The bad news is there is an 11.6 net rating differential with Boogie-Rudy lineups and lineups with Boogie and no Rudy. Cousins will have some massive stat lines, but he's more likely to be rested at times this year.

Kevin Durant was phenomenal against his former team on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 40 points (13-of-16 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs) with 12 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and five 3-pointers.

"It's never going to be a regular game for me," Durant said prior to the game. "I'm sure it will [be emotional]. It's people I've been with for so long and to see them again, yeah, they'll be some emotions. But I've still got a job to do." He did his job at an MVP level tonight, playing with a little extra juice against Russell Westbrook and co., and he continues to hold off all challengers for No. 1 fantasy value in 9-cat leagues.

Russell Westbrook picked up his 21st triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists, but he also had 10 turnovers in a lopsided loss to the Warriors.

Westbrook had his triple-double halfway through the third quarter, marking the 22nd time in his career that he's done it in three quarters or less. He made 8-of-23 FGs and 10-of-11 FTs tonight, with two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer, and continues to be a ridiculous fantasy asset on a nightly basis, especially in DFS and points leagues. Tonight's loss drops the Thunder into a virtual tie with Memphis for the No. 7 seed in the West, but they're still six games up on the No. 8 seed Nuggets.
Jan 19 - 1:26 AM

Garrett Temple played 29 minutes off the bench against the Pacers on Wednesday with nine points, four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

He should be getting a big bump in usage and playing time with Rudy Gay (Achilles). In the previous stretch Gay missed 10 of 11 games, Temple averaged 10.2 points, 3.4 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 treys on 42.4 percent from the field and 89.5 percent from the line. That was good for eighth-round value, so he is worth a look in standard leagues.

Preliminary tests indicated Rudy Gay has suffered a torn left Achilles.

He'll have an MRI on Thursday to confirm the injury, which is likely to end his season. Gay had micro tearing in his left Achilles dating back to 2014 and received shockwave treatment before. He's heading into a contract year and the timing is just terrible for the 30-year-old forward. The Kings will have to count on Garrett Temple, Matt Barnes and Anthony Tolliver. Temple is worth a pickup in standard leagues.
