Byron Mullens, who is hoping to return on the upcoming road trip, is doing agility drills and some sprints.

"(Based on) today, I felt like I could play on Saturday, but I know I can't," he said. "Just running around at 10 percent is not like game speed and I'm definitely not in game shape," he added. Mullens has been cleared for any activity that doesn't cause him pain, and while the swelling is gone and pain is minimal, he has scar tissue in the ankle that he has to break up. "I probably tore everything you could tear without breaking (the ankle)," Mullens said. This was obviously not an ordinary sprain.

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is a game-time call on Monday vs. the Hawks.

The Cavaliers will not rest LeBron James, Kevin Love or Kyrie Irving on Monday vs. the Warriors according to ESPN.

Some within the Cavaliers' organization "briefly pondered sitting out the trio," but they decided against it because they want to "gain valuable repetition" against the Warriors. The owners of James, Irving and Love can deploy them with confidence.

T.J. McConnell (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks.

He has a right wrist sprain, but he should be considered day-to-day barring another update. McConnell has thrived as the starting PG, so stick with him unless we learn that he will miss additional time. Sergio Rodriguez will likely move back into the starting lineup, but the 76ers will probably want to get an extended look at Chasson Randle before his 10-day contract expires later this week.

Enes Kanter scored a season-high 29 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Sunday’s 122-118 victory over the Kings.

Kanter recorded his 12th double-double of the season tonight and his fourth in the last six games. He finished one rebound short of tying his season-high. Steven Adams (head) left tonight’s game after hitting his head on the floor and was being evaluated for a concussion. If he misses any time, Kanter will see a boost. He faces the Clippers on Monday, a team he is averaging 23.3 minutes, 14 points, 10.3 rebounds, and one steal against this season.

Doug McDermott scored 20 of his career-high 31 points during in the second quarter of Sunday's road win in Charlotte, finishing 9-of-16 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line.

McDermott caught fire in the first half and helped the Bulls escape with a 108-104 road win, benefiting from extra minutes with Nikola Mirotic (illness) unavailable tonight. The third-year SF out of Creighton has had some nice moments over the past month, but tonight's eruption (against a tough Grizzlies' defense) doesn't necessarily make him worth owning. He added six boards, one steal and one block tonight, but for standard-league purposes he's only worth owning if you need a 3-point specialist.

Patrick Beverley got back on track during Sunday's game in Brooklyn, scoring 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and zero turnovers.

Beverley played just 27 minutes in the blowout road win, and it was great to see his shot falling -- he averaged only 5.0 points on 25.0 percent shooting in his previous four games. In spite of the recent slump, Bev has been a terrific fantasy asset with career-high averages in boards (6.1), assists (4.4) and steals (1.5), to go along with 8.9 points and 1.6 threes.

James Harden posted another triple-double on Sunday, his 12th of the season, with 22 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, four 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

The Rockets scored 74 points in the first half, matching a season-high, and they finished with 137 points in a high-scoring rout in Brooklyn. Harden trails Russell Westbrook's 19 triple-doubles, but he leads the league with 35 double-doubles. Any way you slice it, he's been amazing in both reality and fantasy.
Jan 15 - 9:08 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored a season-high 20 points vs. the Bucks on Sunday, making 6-of-10 shots with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 23 minutes.

Dunleavy also went 4-of-5 at the FT line, but he had a few things working in his favor tonight -- the Hawks played a lot of wing-heavy lineups against a relatively small Bucks team, and more minutes were available with Mike Muscala injuring his ankle after one minute of action. We're very skeptical of Dunleavy, who is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 15 - 7:54 PM

Jonas Valanciunas double-doubled in his 28 minutes of action during Sunday's 116-101 blowout victory over the Knicks, tallying 12 points, 16 rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

Ever since head coach Dwane Casey challenged Valanciunas to earn his minutes by dominating his matchup, JV has been a double-double machine owning averages of 14.0 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.0 block and just 1.2 turnovers per contest on 53.1 percent shooting, which has been good enough for top-50 value in standard 9-cat leagues. After the game, Casey said that there are "no excuses" for Valanciunas to not "dominate" the boards, and he's been pleased with JV's performance as of late.
Jan 15 - 6:54 PM

Lance Thomas has been diagnosed with a left orbital fracture and concussion-like symptoms, and he's doubtful to play on Monday.

The fractured bone is near Thomas' left cheek, and with concussion symptoms it would be shocking to see him in uniform for Monday's game. Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Justin Holiday should pick up minutes in Thomas' probable absence, and Holiday looked very good on Sunday with 17 points, three 3-pointers and three boards off the bench.
Jan 15 - 6:05 PM

J.J. Barea was phenomenal in his 17 minutes of action during Sunday's win over the Wolves, scoring 15 points on 5-of-5 shooting to go with one 3-pointer, three boards, three assists and two turnovers.

Barea also went 4-of-5 from the charity stripe, giving him a ridiculous true shooting percentage of 104.2 on the evening to accompany his 32.4 usage rate. Barea said that while he's still not completely recovered from the left leg muscle strain, he's finally starting to feel better, so his minutes should start creeping up into the 20-range. He's worth a speculative add in deep leagues.
