Damian Lillard carved another letter on the ROY trophy on Sunday, making a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left to knock off the visiting Hornets.

Lillard's near-buzzer-beater gave him 16 points on the evening, including four 3-pointers, and he also chipped in four rebounds, one steal and one block with just one turnover in 39 minutes. He ranks as the No. 11 point guard in eight-cat leagues this season, just behind Kemba Walker and ahead of Tony Parker, Goran Dragic and Jason Kidd.

Gary Harris (ankle) will start Sunday's game vs. the Timberwolves, sending Will Barton back to the bench.

Harris will be returning from a three-game stint on the sidelines, and he'll be on a minutes limit, but he offers enough upside that he should be scooped up in most leagues if he was cut during the injury. With Harris on a minutes limit, Barton shouldn't take too drastic of a hit, but once he's fully up to speed both Barton and Jamal Murray will lose some minutes.

Ricky Rubio (personal) is expected to rejoin the team on Monday, and he will fly with the squad to Phoenix for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

Rubio will miss Sunday's game against the Nuggets, but it sounds like this will only end up being a one-game absence due to the personal issue. Kris Dunn will draw the start tonight sans Rubio, and he's on the radar in daily leagues with an uptempo matchup against one of the worst teams in the league at defending the point guard position.

Kris Dunn will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, with Ricky Rubio (personal) unavailable.

Dunn hasn't really had a coming out game yet at the NBA level, but he's going to get a ton of opportunity tonight with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets and no Rubio around to mess with his minutes. He's on the radar as a potential streamer punt play in DFS. Tyus Jones should also see some extended minutes off the bench tonight.
Jan 22 - 5:21 PM

Wesley Matthews (right hip strain) will not return to Sunday's game against the Lakers.

Matthews asked to come out of the game with 1:16 left in the second quarter and was sporting a noticeable limp on his way to the locker room, so it's not surprising to see him ruled out for the remainder of the game. He'll end his evening with 13 points, three triples, two boards, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 14 minutes, and for now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.
Jan 22 - 4:45 PM

Patrick Patterson (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Suns.

Patterson was able to go through a full practice on Saturday, and while head coach Dwane Casey said acknowledged that he's now pain-free, he wants to be extra cautious and give Patterson an extra day to rest up. The Raptors have a back-to-back set coming up Tuesday vs. San Antonio and Wednesday in Memphis, and it seems likely that Patterson will be able to get back for at least one of those games.
Jan 22 - 4:22 PM

Lucas Nogueira (concussion) will play Sunday vs. the Suns.

Nogueira will be returning from a two-game stint on the sidelines, and his return to action will likely cut into Norman Powell's minutes. It's unclear if Nogueira will immediately be re-inserted back into the starting five, but it'll be interesting to see what his minutes look like tonight with Jared Sullinger working his way back into game shape. Still, Nogueira only needs roughly 20 minutes to put up some elite block totals, so give him a look if you're seeking a boost in the shot blocking category.
Jan 22 - 4:21 PM

Joe Harris (left ankle) will not play Monday vs. the Spurs.

This will be Harris' second straight game on the sidelines, which could result in Sean Kilpatrick earning another start with Caris LeVert logging extended minutes with the second unit. Both Kilpatrick and LeVert will be on the radar in daily leagues, and LeVert presents enough upside you can justify stashing him in most formats. Harris belongs on the waiver wire everywhere.

The Bulls are reportedly actively shopping Rajon Rondo and Nikola Mirotic, although thus far, GM Gar Forman has not seen an offer he deems a worthy return.

"Obviously, you knew that would be the case with Rondo," an unnamed source said. "But they don’t like what they’re hearing back on [Mirotic] either. Then again, that’s a [front office] that tends to overvalue its assets." With how low Rondo's value is right now around the league, the Bulls may be forced to outright cut him in order to get him off the roster, but until he's wearing a different jersey he won't be worth owning in standard leagues. Mirotic is consistently inconsistent, and a change to the name across the front of his uniform may not be able to change that.
Jan 22 - 3:58 PM

Luol Deng (wrist) and Nick Young (knee) will start Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

Deng will be returning from a two-game absence, and Brandon Ingram, Young, Julius Randle and Timofey Mozgov will join him in the starting five. Deng hasn't played very well over the past month, and with Larry Nance (knee) also getting back to the court tonight, he's not a strong pickup in most settings. Ingram has been playing really well lately, and after flirting with a triple-double the last time he started at point, he makes for an intriguing DFS play today.
Jan 22 - 3:22 PM

Klay Thompson scored 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with seven 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Thompson torched Orlando from beyond the arc, scoring all 21 of his points from distance and missing just two of those nine attempts. This was also the second time the Splash Brothers each drained seven triples in the same game, a feat that no other pair of teammates has ever done more than once.
Jan 22 - 2:50 PM

Elfrid Payton posted a 23-point, 10-assist double-double during Sunday's loss to the Warriors, to go with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 39 minutes of play.

Payton has been steadily ascending the rankings over the past month, and with D.J. Augustin (ankle) going down in this one, he could be looking major minutes for the Magic moving forward. This was the ninth time this season that Payton had eclipsed the 20-point mark, and over the past few weeks, he’s been a top-75 guy with averages of 17.8 points, 6.7 dimes, 1.2 steals, 1.0 triple and 2.8 turnovers per game on 50.0 percent shooting from the field.
