Fresh off an historic triple-double with 10 blocks, Larry Sanders played 33 minutes off the bench vs. Boston to finish with 18 points, 16 rebounds, one steal, five blocks and zero turnovers.

"I wanted to start Larry, but Larry said he didn't want to," Scott Skiles said before the game. "He wanted to stay in his role coming off the bench." It turns out the role suited him just fine, and owners should double-check that he's not still available on waivers. We trust Skiles as far as we can punt him, but Sanders' monster lines could earn him a reliable 30 minutes per game, especially if Samuel Dalembert (DNP-CD) drops out of the picture.

Kobe Bryant (shoulder) has an appointment with a specialist on Monday, after which he'll decide whether to have surgery or pursue a different treatment option.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne reiterates that so far "everyone has recommended surgery." It's safe to assume that Kobe is done for the season but he's performing his due diligence to explore every rehab possibility, and he and the Lakers should make an official announcement early this week. Assuming he does have rotator cuff surgery, he'd be looking at approximately six months of recovery.

Nick Young went scoreless in eight minutes off the Lakers' bench on Sunday, and Byron Scott said afterward that Young looked as though he "didn't want to be here."

There was no swag tonight as Young missed both of his shot attempts and turned the ball over three times in a sloppy performance which led Scott to bench him. L.A.'s rotations are a complete mess and Young doesn't do much beyond scoring on a good night, so owners must brace themselves for some turbulent production.

James Harden ran roughshod over the Lakers' defense in Sunday's road win, scoring 37 points (12-of-20 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs) with four 3-pointers, eight boards, five assists, two steals and six turnovers.

Harden is averaging 37.0 points over Houston's past four games and continues to lead the NBA in scoring at 27.3 points per game, well ahead of LeBron James (26.0), Kevin Durant (25.3), Anthony Davis (24.2), DeMarcus Cousins (24.2) and Carmelo Anthony (24.1). Just get comfortable and enjoy the fireworks.

Jared Sullinger played fantastic in a loss to the Warriors on Sunday, scoring 26 points with nine boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

The line would have been even more impressive had he not been struggling with foul trouble, but his owners will be thrilled with this line. Sullinger's role in the offense should only grow now that Kelly Olynyk (ankle) is sidelined for a while, so he should be viewed as a must-start option for the foreseeable future.

Kris Humphries was phenomenal in 33 minutes vs. the Nuggets, scoring a season-high 21 points on 9-of-13 shooting with 14 rebounds and one assist.

Humphries per-minute production has been impressive all season, and he was playing too well tonight for coach Randy Wittman to take him off the court. He's a borderline option in 14-team leagues but belongs on the waiver wire in shallower formats, at least until Nene's next stretch of DNPs.

John Wall led the Wizards to an overtime win in Denver on Sunday, scoring 19 points and dishing out 16 assists, one shy of his career high.

Wall made 8-of-16 shots including one 3-pointer and he was huge down the stretch, scoring or assisting on six of Washington's scoring plays. He added one steal with only two turnovers in tonight's high-scoring affair, and he's overtaken Ty Lawson for the league-lead in assists with 10.1 per game. When you eliminate turnovers from the equation, Wall's fantasy valuation leaps into the top-25.

Ty Lawson went off in his return from a one-game personal absence on Sunday, scoring a game-high 31 points with 12 assists before missing a potentially game-tying jumper in overtime.

Lawson hit 10-of-20 shots and 8-of-8 free throws with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and three steals, perhaps taking his emotions out on the court after being arrested on suspicion of a DUI on Friday. He may eventually face a short suspension from the league, but for now owners can tentatively expect to have him for all four of Denver's games this week.
Jan 25 - 11:01 PM

Klay Thompson scored 31 points to lead the Warriors in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, adding two boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

It's incredible to think that Thompson was able to score 37 points in a quarter during Friday's game over the Kings, so his owners might be starting to feel a little greedy and are probably yawning at this stat line. It's going to be interesting to see who ends up starting in the All-Star game in place of Kobe Bryant (shoulder), as James Harden and Klay Thompson are locked in an exciting battle to take home the honors. Keep Thompson active in your lineup and enjoy the show.

D.J. Augustin exploded for a career-high 35 points while taking over the Pistons' starting PG job on Sunday, hitting 12-of-20 shots with five 3-pointers, four boards and eight assists.

Congratulations to all those owners who snagged Augustin off the waiver wire following Brandon Jennings' Achilles injury. Augustin also was 6-of-6 at the FT line with only two turnovers in 37 minutes and this may stand as his best line all season, but he's locked into a huge role with Jennings done for the year. Detroit plays three times next week, which is good enough to start Augustin in all formats.

Kawhi Leonard briefly left Sunday's game against the Bucks with a tweaked ankle, but returned shortly after to the tune of 19 points, 14 boards, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He was in the locker room for just a few minutes and didn't appear to be limited at all by his ankle. It's possible that he deals with some swelling in the coming days, but the Spurs are off until Wednesday so he should have plenty of time to recover. This is the kind of stat line that Leonard can put up on any given night, so it looks like he will continue to reward his patient owners for the rest of the way.
Jan 25 - 10:01 PM

Khris Middleton tied his season-high with 21 points in a loss to the Spurs on Sunday, adding five boards, two assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He was absolutely on fire in this one, going 9-of-14 from the floor and 3-of-5 from beyond the arc. Middleton has been phenomenal in 2015, and over his last 10 games he has averaged 12.7 points, 2.4 assists, 4.8 boards, 2.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers per game. If he is somehow still available in your league, he needs to be picked up immediately.
