Roy Hibbert said on Saturday that his career-worst 40.4 percent shooting this season is the result of a right wrist injury that originally occurred during last year's playoffs.

"It doesn't hurt. It just has weakness," said Hibbert. "I haven't had any power in my right wrist, so my hand has been basically a stub." The good news is that he's been receiving treatment daily since the issue was diagnosed on Dec. 14, and he's made at least 50 percent of his shots in four of the past five games. Buy low while you still can.

Stephen Curry scored a game-high 32 points in a 123-112 win over the Knicks on Tuesday, hitting all six of his free throws, 8-of-15 triples and 9-of-19 shots.

He had 17 of his 32 points in the third quarter, and this was his 14th game of the season with 30+ points and third game with 8+ triples. Curry added seven assists and six rebounds with just a single turnover in 33 minutes, and it's nice to see him take better care of the ball after turning it over six times in each of his previous two games. He's been the second best player in standard 9-category leagues on a per-game basis and will look to keep his momentum going vs. the Wolves on Thursday.

Kyrie Irving hit 13-of-24 shots and four 3-pointers for 33 points, three rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes of Tuesday's 108-107 loss to the Lakers.

Irving banged his left knee on another player's in the second half and was seen grabbing it a few times, but stayed in the game and played through it. He's been bothered by a shoulder injury lately, but is hot, scoring 40 points on Sunday and scoring at least 20 points in his last five games. The shoulder issue seems to be subsiding, but owners may want to check back on Wednesday to make sure that the left knee isn't going to be a problem. Based on how he played after the injury tonight, it looks like he's fine. The Celtics have now lost four straight games after winning seven straight.

Kevin Durant was ejected with two technicals on Tuesday vs. the Knicks, finishing with 14 points, a career-high 14 assists, four rebounds, two steals, two blocks and five turnovers in 32 minutes.

That's his fourth ejection of the season and 10th technical -- once he hits 16 he will get an automatic one-game suspension. KD vented some frustration to the officials before getting tossed, but there was only 2:50 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Warriors were up by 18 at the time. He finished 4-of-10 from the field and hit all four free throws, helping the Warriors bounce back from their loss to Houston on Saturday.

Jarrett Allen posted the first double-double of his NBA career with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

This was his first game with double-digit rebounds, but this was also just his third game of the season with 23+ minutes. He finished 4-of-6 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line with one assist and one block, and coach Kenny Atkinson rewarded his strong play by letting him close the game. We love Allen's upside in blocks, so keep an eye on him in case his role grows.

Dejounte Murray has taken over the reins from Tony Parker and had one of the best games of his career with 19 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and a career-high seven steals on 8-of-15 shooting in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

"(Parker) is still going to be an important part of what we do," coach Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday. "But Dejounte is a young talent and we need to find out exactly what we have there. So it is time." Murray was right on time with a monster line tonight, and while Parker and Patty Mills will still shine from time to time, Murray is the guy you want to own in fantasy right now. Go get him.

Russell Westbrook hit the game-winning layup over the outstretched arms of Jarrett Allen in a 109-108 victory over the Nets on Tuesday, scoring 32 points in 36 minutes.

That's not a bad way to celebrate being named to his seventh All-Star game. The Nets have allowed the third most fantasy points to PGs this season, so this was the perfect storm for Russ. He hit 12-of-27 shots and 8-of-11 free throws, adding six assists, five rebounds, two steals and one turnover. His Thunder are rolling with five straight wins and they will look to make it six on Thursday vs. the Wizards.

Kyle Anderson played 34 minutes and hit 5-of-10 shots for 10 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's 114-102 win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

Anderson guarded LeBron James for much of the night and had his fourth double-double of the season. He's played really well in his last three games, averaging 8.3 points, 10.3 boards, 3.7 assists, 2.7 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers over that stretch. And with Kawhi Leonard out until further notice, and with Anderson's confidence soaring, he should be one of the hottest pickups in fantasy hoops right now.
Jan 23 - 10:44 PM

LeBron James had 28 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, a block and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to become the youngest player in NBA history to hit 30,000 points for his career.

LeBron played well, but Kevin Love was rather quiet and Isaiah Thomas is still clearly trying to shake off the rust after missing the first couple months of the season with his hip injury. James is still a fantasy monster and sits as the No. 5 player in nine-cat this season. But his teammates aren't giving him much help, which is fine in fantasy, but not working in reality.

Kevin Love played 27 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots (0-for-1 from downtown) for 10 points, 11 rebounds and a steal in Tuesday's 114-102 loss to the Spurs.

Apparently the message the team reportedly sent to Love on Monday was not received. The reeling Cavs have lost two straight, six of their last seven and are 3-7 in January. They still have the potential to flip the switch and turn it around, but things are not going well in Cleveland right now. Love may not be feeling well, but he had no choice but to be out there trying his best tonight. And LaMarcus Aldridge and Dejounte Murray dominated them in the win. Tyronn Lue said after the game that a lineup change is coming, but it's hard to imagine Love not being a starter for the Cavs.

Michael Beasley will start against the Warriors on Tuesday in place of Kristaps Porzingis (left knee).

He gets a massive usage rate bump with KP off the floor, so he's an excellent streaming option tonight. Porzingis isn't known for his durability, so it's worth picking up Beasley until we find out more about the severity. Check back after the game for an update.
Jan 23 - 10:13 PM

Garrett Temple hit 14-of-17 shots and four 3-pointers for a career-high 34 points, two rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Magic.

De'Aaron Fox went down with abdominal tightness and didn't return after just 11 minutes, and Temple was really the only option left at point guard for the Kings, as George Hill was rested and Frank Mason and Fox were hurt. Temple didn't even play on Monday (because he's a veteran) and hadn't scored more than 16 points in a game since prior to Christmas. Tonight was his night, but it's hard to see him being a hot pickup unless Fox is going to miss multiple games with his injury. Temple has just eight 20-point games over his seven-year career.
