Eric Gordon (knee) will sit out Wednesday as part of a plan to rest him in the second half of back-to-backs.

Monty Williams has made it clear the Hornets are taking it slow with Gordon, who has openly campaigned for more minutes. After going off for 24 points Saturday, Gordon scored 11 on 5-of-17 shooting against the Hawks on Tuesday. Still, he remains worth owning in all leagues and is a viable start in most. Austin Rivers will likely start Wednesday, with Roger Mason Jr. and Brian Roberts possibly seeing more time.

Utah rolled past the Bulls on Wednesday, 110-80, led by Derrick Favors' 23 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

Favors said afterward that he's trying to be more aggressive offensively, and it paid off nicely tonight with Utah's second win in their past five games -- including Utah's biggest margin of victory all season. The quality of the competition had a lot to do with the score, but Favors did look particularly good in pick-and-rolls tonight. He's paying off nicely for owners who grabbed him when Rudy Gobert (knee) went down.

Khris Middleton dropped 40 points on 14-of-26 shots in Wednesday's overtime win over the Suns, hitting 9-of-11 free throws with nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and three triples in 46 minutes.

Middleton has a 33.1 usage rate this season with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) off the floor compared to 22.0 with him on, so it’s no surprise that he had a monster game against the non-existent defense of the Suns. Giannis is expected back on Saturday vs. the Jazz, but if you play DFS, keep this game in mind for Middleton if the Greek Freak misses another contest this season.

Eric Bledsoe scored a season-high 30 points against his former Suns in a 113-107 overtime win on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-26 shots and 6-of-13 free throws with seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and two triples in 45 minutes.

Bledsoe is off to a slow start with his new team, but there's nothing like a "revenge game" to get the juices flowing. "I’m with a talented group of guys who can also make plays," Bledsoe said of his new teammates. "So I’ve got to try to find my game a little bit. It takes time." Bledsoe enjoyed a nice bump in usage with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) resting, and while his value will trend back down after this massive line, he still has enough upside to flirt with early- to mid-round value once his shot starts falling.

Chris Paul made 8-of-11 from the field for 23 points during an easy 125-95 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, 12 assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He did play in the fourth quarter because the Rockets did want him to get to 28 minutes. There seems to be a pretty clear plan here on CP3 with 21 minutes on Thursday, 24 on Saturday and 28 today. In the last three games, CP3 has logged 47 minutes next to James Harden, and he's actually dominated with per-36 averages of 21.6 points, 5.4 boards, 10.1 dimes, 3.1 steals and 3.1 treys -- his numbers are even better without Harden over 26 minutes. The Rockets are a fantasy factor and both guys should be elite fantasy assets.

Greg Monroe had a nice revenge game vs. the Bucks on Wednesday, setting season-highs in points (22) and rebounds (15) with one assist and one block in 32 minutes.

Tyson Chandler (illness) returned to the starting lineup, but in a surprising move for a rebuilding team, the Suns deployed Monroe as the backup center over Alex Len (DNP-CD) — there’s a chance the Suns played him over Len to get some revenge on his former team as well. The Suns have been showcasing Monroe for a trade, but if they can’t salvage what little trade value he has, he’ll likely be bought out at some point. In the meantime, look at Monroe as a short-term source of points and rebounds as long as he stays ahead of Len.

Alex Len picked up a DNP-CD in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Bucks.

Tyson Chandler (illness) was back in action and started, but the Suns deployed Greg Monroe as his backup over Len. That won’t always be the case because the Suns are showcasing both Chandler and Monroe for a potential trade, and the veterans are buyout candidates as well. Until this situation improves, Len may have just been demoted to a stash in fantasy leagues.

Taj Gibson roared back on Wednesday with 24 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block, making 8-of-11 FGs and 8-of-10 FTs in 40 minutes.

Minnesota snapped their two-game losing streak and Gibson was a big reason why -- it was the polar opposite of his listless, one-point dud vs. Charlotte on Monday. He continues to dominate frontcourt minutes as a starter, reducing Gorgui Dieng (one point, three boards in 12 minutes) to an afterthought. As long as that's the case, Taj should be a solid top-100 roto player.
Nov 22 - 11:55 PM

Elfrid Payton dished out a season-high 13 assists during Wednesday's loss to the Wolves, adding 10 points, four rebounds, two steals and one block.

Before the game, coach Frank Vogel said he's considered a lineup change but wants to give his team more time to return to full strength. "Staying the course right now," he said. "We're trying to keep guys in their roles while we try to achieve [full strength]." This was a big step for Payton, who hadn't played more than 31 minutes since returning from injury, and it looks safe to deploy him everywhere.

Russell Westbrook powered the Thunder to an impressive win on Wednesday, scoring 34 points with 10 rebounds, nine assists and four steals in 37 minutes vs. Golden State.

Westbrook started the game in alpha-dog mode and didn't let up, finishing 13-of-27 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line, with one 3-pointer. The scoring was a season-high, and it resulted in OKC's first win vs. Kevin Durant since he left to join the Warriors two summers ago. Westbrook's owners should hope he continues to assert himself more often offensively, but either way we expect a big game vs. the Pistons' defense on Friday.

Dion Waiters helped the Heat defeat the streaking Celtics on Wednesday with 26 points on 11-of-24 shooting, four 3-pointers, six assists and two rebounds.

Waiters went scoreless on 0-of-10 shooting on Sunday, so he was due for a makeup game offensively. He committed just one turnover in 36 minutes tonight, and even knocked down a series of clutch jumpers to fend off a late run by Boston. Despite the heroics tonight, Waiters is still outside the top-150 in category-based leagues.

The Celtics' 16-game win streak came to an end in Miami on Wednesday, despite Kyrie Irving's team-high 23 points, three assists and three steals.

Irving made 11-of-22 field goals but missed his 3-point attempts and was an uncharacteristic 1-of-4 at the free throw line. Boston was out-rebounded (48-37) and they gave up 52 points in the paint, and their patented late-game rally came up short tonight. This doesn't impact Kyrie's solid fantasy outing, of course, and Boston will look to start a new win streak vs. Orlando on Friday.
