Jason Richardson (left knee) won't play Monday and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Dorell Wright.

Richardson has already missed seven games due to his balky knee and Monday is the first game of a back-to-back, so it's not exactly a surprise Richardson isn't playing. Wright and Richardson are involved in a straight timeshare when both are healthy, but it's possible Wright could carve out a bigger role with a string of solid performances.

Lou Williams scored 35 points on 10-of-19 shooting in Friday's 119-115 loss to the Suns, adding five rebounds, two assists, one steal and six triples in 35 minutes.

The Lakers have lost five straight games, but Williams has been one of the hottest players in the league in that span, averaging 30.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 3.4 treys on 48.9 percent shooting. The Lakers could get Nick Young (calf) back as soon as Monday's game vs. the Kings, so Williams' value should trend down a bit.

Carmelo Anthony started hot during a 103-100 win over the Kings on Friday, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers

He scored 15 points in the first quarter and eight in the second to get the ball rolling. After Melo failed to go to the line on Wednesday, he made an extra effort to get there tonight and converted a season-high 12 shots from there. Anthony still hasn't quite hit his stride from an efficiency standpoint while his boards, dimes and steals are all down from last year, but his fantasy owners can't complain. He gets a great matchup against the Lakers on Sunday.

Nick Young (calf) is hoping to be ready for Monday's game vs. the Kings.

If he does play, he will crush the original timetable he was given. Young was averaging 13.3 points, 1.1 assists and 2.6 triples before the injury, so feel free to pick him up if you're targeting points and triples. Jordan Clarkson, Lou Williams and Brandon Ingram could each lose a few minutes upon Young's return.

Eric Bledsoe scored 30 points with nine assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and three triples in Friday's win over the Lakers.

Not a bad way to celebrate his 27th birthday. Bledsoe shot 10-of-18 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line for the 11th 30-point game of his career. Bledsoe has shown flashes this season, so hopefully he can keep it going in a favorable matchup with the Pelicans on Sunday.
Dec 10 - 1:25 AM

Andre Drummond made 10-of-13 from the field for 22 points during a 117-90 win at Minnesota on Friday, adding 22 boards and one block in 28 minutes.

He is back and he has been on fire since his ejection on Nov. 29. In his previous five, he had a 24.1 rebounding percentage, a 23.0 usage rate, a 60 true shooting percentage, 17.0 points, 14.2 boards, 1.4 steals and 1.8 blocks. The return of Reggie Jackson hasn't been the reason either with Drummond having a much higher efficiency without Jackson in the last four -- Drummond is cleaning up in the paint. Whatever is going on with Drummond, it looks for real and he's back to being a fantasy superstar for those who don't care about free throw percentage.
Dec 10 - 1:17 AM

Alex Len racked up 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with 13 rebounds, five blocks and two assists in Friday's 119-115 win over the Lakers.

With Marquese Chriss in early foul trouble, Len played 34 minutes in the win and saw some action alongside Tyson Chandler as well. This was his sixth double-double of the season and he was one block away from matching his career-high of six. His minutes were trending down prior to this outburst, so we'd like to see him do it again. However, he's still a nice stash for the stretch run with the Suns tanking.
Dec 10 - 1:13 AM

James Harden scored 21 points during a 102-99 win over the Thunder on Friday, adding nine rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He beat his former team, but it certainly wasn't his best game. Harden had eight turnovers and made just 6-of-23 from the field. Interestingly, he's not touching the ball as much since Pat Beverley has returned. Before Beverley, Harden had a time of possession of 9.5 minutes per game, but that number has dropped to 8.7 in the previous 11 games before tonight. He's still going to be a stat monster and so much for coach Mike D'Antoni dropping his minutes, right?
Dec 10 - 12:36 AM

C.J. Miles hit six 3-pointers on his way to 18 points against the Mavericks on Friday.

He was 6-of-9 from the field and all of his attempts were from beyond the arc. He played 28 minutes and added four rebounds, one assist and two steals, but this comes on the heels of a two-point dud on Wednesday vs. the Suns. He's a fun player to own when he gets hot, so taking a flier on him if you need triples is the right call.
Dec 10 - 12:17 AM

Steven Adams had a career-high 24 points during a 102-99 loss to the Rockets on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

He was 8-of-9 from both the line and the field in this gem. Quite remarkably, Adams is up to 77.0 percent from the line on his 3.2 attempts per game this season. That percentage is way up from his 58.2 percent from last year, which really explains his massive rise in the fantasy ranks despite a drop in block rate. He has sixth-round value on the season for standard leagues.
Dec 10 - 12:12 AM

Russell Westbrook posted his seventh consecutive triple-double in a loss to the Rockets on Friday, scoring 27 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and eight turnovers in 36 minutes.

He's the first player to triple-double for seven straight since Michael Jordan in 1989. On the other hand, his efficiency was bad today with 25 attempts from the field, making only eight of those. Westbrook's usage rate tonight (45.5) was higher than his true shooting percentage (44.6) and playing time. He's on a record pace for the season at 40.4 usage rate to go with these ridiculous triple-doubles. We've never seen a player like this.
Dec 10 - 12:02 AM

T.J. Warren (head) will return to practice on Saturday.

He's been out of commission since Nov. 18 against the Pacers. Warren has been doing some individual workouts for the past few days, but his return to practice doesn't mean he will play on Sunday vs. New Orleans. However, this is tremendous news for the Suns and Warren should be picked up in all leagues after he put up averages of 17.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.9 steals and 0.6 triples on 45.8 percent shooting prior to the injury.
