Ricky Rubio is questionable for the second half of Thursday's game against the Clippers with tightness in his hip and Kris Dunn started the second half in his place.

If Rubio's done for the night he'll finish with zero points on 0-for-3 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and three turnovers in 17 minutes. The injury doesn't sound terribly serious, but owners will obviously want to watch for news on Rubio going forward. This is a potentially tough break, as he was playing very well over the last couple weeks.

Dejounte Murray had easily his best NBA game of his career in a start for Tony Parker (foot) on Thursday, scoring a career-high 24 points on 7-of-11 from the field with two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Wow. Murray had no jumper in his time at Washington, making just 34.0 percent of his twos and 28.8 percent of his threes. He also had some horrendous turnover woes, so the one turnover in all that playing time is almost as impressive as the scoring. Clearly, things are working out nicely for the rookie and the Spurs clearly trust him as their No. 3 point guard. This game is a huge fluke, but keep him in mind if Tony Parker (foot) misses games again. Parker is likely to play on Saturday against the Cavs.

Nikola Jokic erupted for a career-high 35 points during a 118-104 loss to the Spurs on Thursday, adding 12 rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers.

He went bonkers in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 straight points for the Nuggets to keep them in this game. As you might expect, coach Mike Malone had some nice things to say after the game. "Whether it's playmaking, scoring, rebounding, he's a terrific young talent who's only getting better before our eyes," Malone said. Jokic became the first Nugget with three straight games of at least 25 points and 10 boards since Carmelo Anthony. In those three games, Jokic averaged 31.3 points, 12.7 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 treys on 61.9 percent from the field. He's been a top-five player in his last 10 games.

John Wall scored 29 points in a 113-110 win at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, adding five rebounds, 13 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

Revenge game for not making the All-Star starters? Whatever the case, Wall's Wizards are the hottest team in the East with their four-game winning streak -- nobody else has more than two straight wins. Not surprisingly, Wall has crushed in those four games, averaging 25.8 points, 4.5 boards, 10.0 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.8 treys. He'll obviously be an All-Star reverse and has first-round value in standard leagues.

Tony Parker's left ankle locked up prior to Thursday's win over the Nuggets but he will travel with the team for Saturday's game at Cleveland.

Rookie Dejounte Murray started in Parker's place tonight and went off for a career-high 24 points on 7-of-11 shooting and added two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. It sounds like there's a good chance Parker will be back on Saturday, which will obviously hurt Murray's chances for another big game.
Jan 19 - 11:12 PM

Otto Porter matched his career-high six 3-pointers against the Knicks on Thursday, scoring 23 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

It didn't take long for him to match his career high from Wednesday, and he's the first Wizards player ever to make six treys in back-to-back games. Porter's incredible shooting lately has moved him up to the No. 2 player in 3-point percentage this season, trailing Joe Ingles by just 0.2 percent. Porter has arguably been the most efficient player lately, posting an otherworldly 70.0 true shooting percentage over his last 14. He now has top-15 value in standard leagues.
Jan 19 - 11:12 PM

Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points against the Wizards on Thursday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He scored 25 points in the second quarter to set a Knicks franchise record for most points in a quarter. Anthony played more power forward in this game and he's looked a lot more comfortable in that role. Plus, the Knicks are more likely to stagger him from Kristaps Porzingis going forward. While Melo is playing better, his troublesome knee and shoulder will be black marks on his fantasy value. Keep him rolling, of course.
Jan 19 - 10:48 PM

LeBron James scored 21 points during a 118-103 win over the Suns on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, 15 assists, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers.

In the least surprising news of the day, LeBron was named to his 13th All-Star Team with his NBA-record 291 points in the event during his career. He is just one of five players to have that many All-Star nods and will likely pass Kobe Bryant's 18 in six years.
Jan 19 - 10:26 PM

Raymond Felton, J.J. Redick, Austin Rivers, Luc Mbah a Moute and DeAndre Jordan will start against the Wolves on Thursday.

This was expected all along and the Clippers will have to manage without the NBA's top player in real plus minus. Felton is worth a look if you need a point guard for the next 6-8 weeks.
Jan 19 - 10:21 PM

Iman Shumpert scored a season-high 17 points against the Suns on Thursday, adding two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He had a really strong game, which has been a habit for him since he moved into the starting lineup. In those three, Shumpert averaged 16.0 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 steals and 3.7 treys. We've seen Shump go on hot streaks before and he almost always fizzles out, but being this hot in a new role for him makes him an interesting pickup. If you're not dropping something with much demand, it's not a bad idea to give Shump a look to see if he can stay anywhere close to this hot.
Jan 19 - 10:10 PM

Tyson Chandler scored a season-high 22 points against the Cavs during a 118-103 loss on Thursday, adding 16 rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes.

He kept the Suns in this game and grabbed at least 15 boards for the sixth straight active game to tie the record for the longest streak in Suns history. After the game, coach Earl Watson called Chandler "big time" and said his consistency has been important for the Suns. Fantasy owners should just keep rolling him out there and he remains a huge bargain in DFS right now.
