Thabo Sefolosha (neck), who did not play on Sunday, is uncertain to play on Monday.

Sefolosha's status will be determined before tipoff, so owners that have been relying on his durability and contributions will have to check back for an update. If he is forced to sit, DeAndre Liggins, who went off for 11 points, nine rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers on Sunday in 40 minutes, would likely start again.

Marc Gasol capped his magnificent week with 19 points, eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer during a 110-89 win over the Warriors on Saturday.

While we love what Rudy Gobert did this week, Gasol has to be your Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday. In his four wins this week, he averaged 27.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.5 blocks and 50.0 percent from the field. Big Spain also had a triple-double and added 2.0 treys per night. He is having an All-Star season and has been a top-10 player lately.

Austin Rivers left Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans with a possible concussion and will not return per Clippers PR.

He took a shot to the head and remained down for a couple minutes. Rivers' teammates tried to help him up, but Rivers didn't want to get off the floor right away. After he was up, he needed two people to help him get to the locker room. The Clippers are currently evaluating him in the locker room, so we may get another update shortly.

Jimmy Butler scored 31 points with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and two turnovers in 38 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.

He lived at the line, making 15-of-16 from there to help get the win. This was his 14th game of the season with double-digit free throws. Tonight's performance moved him to the top spot in the NBA for free throw makes per game at 8.9 -- James Harden just behind him at 8.8. Butler is a superstar and should have first-round value all season.

LeBron James had himself a day in Saturday's 116-105 win over the Hornets, racking up 44 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds, five 3-pointers, one block and three steals in 42 minutes.

He was only 5-of-9 from the line with five turnovers, but you can't really complain about a line like this. He hit a ridiculous 17-of-24 from the field and became the only player in NBA history with 27,000 career points and 7,000 career assists. This was his ninth career game with 40+ points and 10+ assists which ties him with Michael Jordan, but Oscar Robertson still has a comfortable lead in that regard with 46 games.
Dec 10 - 11:16 PM

Nikola Jokic was fantastic off the bench during a 121-113 win over the Magic on Saturday, scoring 14 points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks in 26 minutes.

While the stats are solid, it doesn't tell the story of just how great he was tonight -- he was +22. Jokic is having more and more offense go through him, making terrific plays all night to get the ball inside and to open shooters. Since his return, Jokic has shot the ball very well with a 60.7 field goal percentage and an 84.6 free throw percentage. Patience is a virtue, folks.
Dec 10 - 11:13 PM

Kenneth Faried bounced back nicely in 24 minutes against the Magic on Saturday, scoring 19 points with 10 rebounds and one assist.

He was a DNP-CD on Thursday and played with a lot of energy. Faried's chance at playing time was due to Wilson Chandler (hip) not playing tonight, so it's tough to tell where he fits in once Chandler is back. He's not really a part of their long-term plans and Juan Hernangomez looked great, so Faried is only a lukewarm pickup.
Dec 10 - 10:49 PM

Wesley Matthews stayed hot on Saturday vs. Houston, scoring 26 points on 8-of-22 shooting.

The Mavericks were blown out by 22 points, but Matthews still played 35 minutes. He added three rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers, hitting 5-of-7 from the line as well. Matthews is on an absolute tear over his last five games, averaging 22.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.0 steal and 5.0 3-pointers on 46.2 percent shooting.
Dec 10 - 10:38 PM

Kemba Walker was diagnosed with a left knee contusion after Saturday's loss to Cleveland.

He banged knees with Lebron James in the final few minutes and was forced to go the bench where he could be seen clutching his knee. Luckily, the Hornets have listed him as day-to-day and there's no word of any tests for now. This is the same knee that he had surgery on during the offseason, but Walker said after the game that he doesn't expect to miss time. Walker finished with 24 points, five assists, one rebound, one steal and three triples in 30 minutes. If you're in a deep league and need a guard, adding Ramon Sessions just in case isn't a bad idea.
Dec 10 - 10:25 PM

Kelly Oubre scored a season-high 19 points against the Bucks on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, one assist, three steals and three 3-pointers.

Coach Scott Brooks has talked about playing Oubre next to Otto Porter and it worked extremely well tonight. That combo actually closed this game out and it almost certainly will be used more often. He's seen his playing time increase in each of his last four, so this is a very noteworthy trend. Oubre is on the radar as a pickup in 14-team leagues or competitive standard leagues. Obviously don't expect a line this good.
Dec 10 - 10:10 PM

C.J. McCollum lit up the Pacers for 34 points on 12-of-22 shooting in Saturday's 118-111 loss.

He had 19 points in the third quarter alone, finishing with four rebounds, four assists, three blocks and three turnovers in 37 minutes. He's now scored 20+ points in four straight games which matches a career best, and he's also hit 4+ triples in each of those games which is a career high. He's returning second-round value in standard leagues and isn't slowing down.
Dec 10 - 9:58 PM

Thaddeus Young broke out of his slump on Saturday vs. the Blazers, scoring 24 points with six 3-pointers, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 40 minutes.

Not bad for a guy who hit seven total triples last season. Young and Paul George sparked a comeback for the Pacers and helped them overcome a 20-point deficit. Young shot 9-of-13 from the field with a few turnovers, but it looks like he wasn't lying when he said he spent the offseason working on his outside shot -- he's now hit 25 triples though 24 games. He was only averaging 9.0 points and 5.4 rebounds in his previous five, so maybe this outburst will get him going.
