Harrison Barnes suffered a left calf injury late in the fourth quarter and did not return.

He fell down after a dunk and was in some pain before heading to the bench. Barnes didn't go directly to the locker room and it doesn't appear to be a serious issue. That said, there's a good chance he'll have to sit out on Tuesday. Draymond Green would likely pick up some extra playing time.

Gerald Green scored 24 points against the Nuggets during a 120-112 win on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, two assists and six 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

When he's on, he's on. Green has been very busy in the fourth quarter when he plays and he's racked up a whopping 13 triples over his last three games. Isaiah Thomas (ankle) did not play tonight and it's pretty clear Green will see a massive bump in production when Thomas, Eric Bledsoe or Goran Dragic need to miss game action. He is still going to be inconsistent, but feel free to give him a look until IT3 is back.

Markieff Morris was all over the court against the Nuggets on Wednesday, posting a monster line of 15 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and three steals in 37 minutes.

He made the Manimal look like a pedestrian tonight and had a highlight-reel block in transition. Morris is filling it up like few others in his last five, averaging 14.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.8 steals and 0.2 treys on 50.8 percent from the field and 92.3 percent from the line. He's a fantasy star and he's going to do this all year.

Timofey Mozgov scored 18 points with 13 boards, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer against the Suns on Wednesday.

That triple is not a misprint and it was his the fifth of his career and first of the season. Mozgov's role is solidified with JaVale McGee (leg) out and Jusuf Nurkic not getting minutes. He should be a top-100 player for the foreseeable future and should be owned in standard leagues.

Manu Ginobili hit 10-of-18 shots, two 3-pointers and 6-of-7 free throws for a season-high 28 points, four rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

There was no way to see this one coming, as he had totaled just 19 points over his last four games and hasn't scored more than 28 points in a game since last February. He ruined Danny Green tonight, but it's nice to know he can still produce on occasion. He's not trustworthy enough to be owned in most leagues, but is worth keeping an eye on.
Nov 27 - 2:33 AM

Larry Sanders was the 2012-13 version of himself against the Wolves on Wednesday with 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, five blocks and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

He made 7-of-10 from the field and only committed three fouls in his best game of the year. Sanders was coming off a nice 12-point, nine-board game, so it's going to be awfully hard to leave him on the wire considering his upside in blocks. If you have anything on your team you're not too attached to, go get him before someone else does.
Nov 27 - 1:49 AM

Donatas Motiejunas scored a career-high 21 points against the Kings on Wednesday with six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 10-of-15 from the field.

This is his third effective game in a row with an average of 13.5 points per game in his previous two. He's also seen a major bump in minutes with 35.7 per game over his last three. The Rockets won't get Terrence Jones (leg) back any time soon and Dwight Howard (knee) is out, so Motiejunas is worth a look in all standard leagues now that he seems to have figured it out.
Nov 27 - 1:29 AM

Isaiah Canaan scored a career-high 24 points against the Kings on Wednesday with six rebounds, four assists, four steals and six 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He was open all night in easily his best game as a pro. Canaan was coming in with no momentum with only 15 points combined in his previous four games and Jason Terry was actually gaining ground on him. Considering how Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is out for a bit, Canaan is worth a look. Although, he has a bad matchup against Chris Paul on Friday.
Nov 27 - 1:24 AM

DeMarcus Cousins suffered a leg injury against the Rockets on Wednesday and did not miss time, finishing with 29 points, 17 rebounds, six assists, three blocks and seven turnovers in 37 minutes.

After the game, he said his knee is sore, but he will be fine for Friday against the Spurs. Cousins has put the team on his back over his last seven and has a usage of at least 36 percent in five of those games, which led to averages of 25.0 points, 14.3 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.9 blocks on 52.4 percent from the field and 83.3 from the line. He is a monster and is basically unstoppable.
Nov 27 - 12:58 AM

Lou Williams may have had a revenge game against the Hawks on Wednesday during a win, making 6-of-11 from the field for 22 points with two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He's so hot right now. Perhaps no bench player is performing at his level, averaging 24.3 points, 1.8 boards, 2.3 steals, 3.5 treys and 0.5 turnovers on 50.0 percent from the field and 96.4 percent from the line in his last four. We'd be lying if we said we saw this coming, but he's just too hot to leave on the wire right now.
Nov 27 - 12:35 AM

Jeremy Lamb caught fire in 24 minutes of action vs. the Jazz, scoring 21 points on 7-of-8 shots including three 3-pointers, while adding four boards, two assists, three steals and one block.

Lamb also turned the ball over three times before fouling out of the game in a frenetic performance that earned him a loud ovation from the home crowd in OKC. He was averaging 6.0 points in just 16.7 minutes in his past three games and it's futile to guess when he might explode off the bench. Most fantasy owners would be best served ignoring him, especially with Kevin Durant (foot) and Russell Westbrook (hand) on the verge of returning.
Nov 27 - 12:02 AM

LeBron James looked like an MVP in a huge 113-87 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, making 7-of-14 from the field and 14-of-17 from the line for 29 points with 10 rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He's starting to get it going and his assists have jumped up to 8.4 per game over his last five to go with averages of 22.0 points, 5.0 boards, 1.8 steals and 1.6 triples. James is still nowhere near the player he was from an efficiency standpoint, but that should be coming in short order. He's still a top-five player in fantasy and the mainstream NBA fans can probably relax after tonight's convincing win. Additionally, the Cavs are 6-1 when LeBron scores 25 or more while they're 1-6 when he doesn't.
