Andrei Kirilenko (back spasms) will not play on Wednesday.

AK-47 battled back spasms for several years before going overseas last year, so there is plenty of cause for concern here. He has been a fantasy dynamo so far this season with averages of 13 points, 7.8 boards, 1.8 blocks and 1.5 steals. His owners will have to exercise patience and the sell-high window gets slammed shut with this news. Josh Howard will start and is worth a look in deeper formats.

Kevin Durant returned from a toe injury on Saturday in an 85-74 loss to the Grizzlies, scoring 15 points on 5-of-16 from the field with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

While Memphis usually shuts down elite scorers, KD lit them up last season with 30.8 points per game in four 2013-14 outings. He's had bad games much more often this season compared to last year, but he should get it figured out soon. Perhaps there's a chance to buy low on the No. 1 fantasy player in the past five seasons.

Kawhi Leonard scored 24 points on 8-of-18 shooting in a loss to the Clippers on Saturday, adding five boards, three steals and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

It was the most points he had scored since Dec. 1 against the 76ers, and he also tied his season-high of four 3-pointers tonight. As long as Leonard remains healthy, he's going to be an elite fantasy asset for the rest of the season.

LeBron James scored 36 points in a 106-90 win against the Wolves on Saturday with six rebounds, five assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

That rest served him well and the Cavs finished extremely strong, outscoring the Wolves 30-11 in the fourth quarter. The Cavs have won 10 straight and LeBron has been on cruise control while he is active. He did a wrist injury to cost him a game on Wednesday and he also had back and knee trouble, so he might have a tough time staying healthy. Still, he'll be a monster while he's active.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope got hot on Saturday and racked up 28 points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal, three blocks and six 3-pointers in a home win over the Rockets.

Jodie Meeks failed to score and D.J. Augustin appears to enjoy feeding the ball to KCP. The 28 points were easily a season high, but he scored 30 on the final day of last season to notch his career high. The three blocks and six triples were both career highs, and KCP could be ready to go on a tear. Just beware that he had scored four points in two of his previous four games, so he could struggle with consistency, despite the huge game.
Feb 1 - 1:03 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored a career-high 33 points against the Cavs on Saturday during a 106-90 loss, adding one rebound, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers.

He made 14-of-25 from the field and looked great against the team that drafted him. Wiggins had himself a great start to the 2015 year, averaging 19.8 points, 4.6 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 treys on 47.1 percent from the field. This guy is going to be good for a long time.

D.J. Augustin wasn't bothered by Patrick Beverley and racked up 28 points, two rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Rockets.

Hopefully you didn't panic and drop him after he missed all seven of his shots and had two points on Wednesday. The 12 dimes were easily a season high, but he scored 35 points last Sunday. He should be good to go throughout the rest of the season with Brandon Jennings done for the year with an Achilles injury.
Feb 1 - 12:57 AM

Blake Griffin scored 31 points with 13 boards, five assists and one block in 35 minutes in a win over the Spurs on Saturday.

Griffin's rebounding hasn't been spectacular this season, as this was just the third time in January that he collected double digit rebounds in a game. Having said that, his owners have to be pleased with this line, as he was able to shoot 12-of-21 from the field and connect on all seven of his free throws. As long as Griffin continues to score efficiently, his owners won't be too concerned about his lack of rebounds and blocks.
Feb 1 - 12:42 AM

Lorenzo Brown played 48 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday with six rebounds, nine assists and three turnovers.

He's just the second player since 1986 to play 48 minutes in a regulation game and score one or less points (Dennis Rodman). Brown had his one chance to do something tonight, but he'll be back to a reserve role with Ricky Rubio (ankle) coming back on Monday.
Feb 1 - 12:29 AM

James Harden left Saturday's game with a sore knee, but returned to finish in a loss to Detroit with 26 points, seven rebounds, nine dimes, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers on 10-of-17 shooting.

He's got a bruised knee and it doesn't sound serious, but owners should watch for news on him. The Rockets might use caution with Harden now that it looks like Dwight Howard will be out a month with his own knee injury.
Feb 1 - 12:23 AM

Al Horford had another magnificent game during a 91-85 win over the 76ers on Saturday, making 10-of-16 from the field for 23 points with 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

That's the Hawks 19th win in a row and they're already at 40 wins on the season. As for Horford, he has been ridiculous in his last 10 games, making 69.8 percent from the field for averages of 18.6 points, 8.4 boards, 5.1 assists, 1.4 blocks and 0.8 steals. He's also made 84.6 percent from the line and is an absolute monster. He's been a top-five fantasy player in that span.
Feb 1 - 12:10 AM

Cody Zeller scored a career-high 21 points in a win over the Nuggets on Saturday while adding eight boards, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 32 minutes.

It was arguably the best offensive game of his career, as he was able to connect on 10 of his 11 shots from the field. Marvin Williams' (head) absence opened up some extra minutes tonight, but Zeller definitely made the most of his opportunity. If you're in need of a big, it's not a bad idea to take a flier on Zeller.
