Chris Paul (knee) still has not resumed practicing.

Paul has been getting therapy on the knee but has not practiced since missing four straight and seven of nine games overall. He "may" return on the upcoming eight-game road trip, an indication that CP3's knee injury could keep him shelved for longer than owners had hoped. The Eric Bledsoe train will continue to roll on while Paul is out.

DeMar DeRozan powered the Raptors to a 112-106 home win on Sunday, scoring 33 points on 9-of-16 field goals and 15-of-16 free throws, with six boards and two assists.

DeRozan had made 27 straight free throws before missing his final attempt tonight, the type of high-volume efficiency that makes it easier to swallow his lack of 3-pointers. He chipped in two steals and one block in 36 minutes, and his owners have to be hoping that Kyle Lowry (wrist) takes his time returning.

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) is probable for Monday's game vs. the 76ers.

Steve Kerr said that KD's hand has improved enough that he's expected to play. The early update is terrific news for owners in weekly leagues, who can safely keep him locked into their lineups. Patrick McCaw will head back to the bench.

John Wall had a mixed game on Sunday, scoring 23 points with 11 assists, three rebounds and four steals, but he also committed nine turnovers.

Wall has at least five first-quarter assists in six consecutive games, and he did his best to carry his team to a win tonight, but their offense wasn't up to snuff at 42.5 percent shooting. His turnovers didn't help matters tonight, but all credit is due to Utah's suffocating team defense. Wall's shot has been off lately, so it was also nice to see him knock down 9-of-18 shots with a pair of 3-pointers tonight.

Rudy Gobert dominated Sunday's game with a game-high 20 rebounds to go along with 15 points (2-of-5 FGs, 11-of-14 FTs), three assists, one steal and four blocks.

Gobert and his teammates turned up the defensive pressure after halftime and they finished with 11 blocks as a team. Gobert is returning steady third-round value over the past month, checking all the boxes his owners expected on draft day. He's still only 24 years old, and the best is yet to come.
Feb 26 - 7:47 PM

Mike Conley posted 31 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals with just one turnover over 35 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 road victory against the Nuggets.

Conley has 30 or more points in six outings this season after posting just five 30-plus performances over his first nine NBA seasons combined. He has three of those performances over his past 11 games, too. The Ohio State product is on pace for career highs in points per game and rebounds this season. He is also well ahead of his career average of 1.2 triples per contest, hitting 2.3 per from behind the perimeter through 48 games.
Feb 26 - 7:39 PM

Khris Middleton got his first start of the season during Sunday's 100-96 win over Phoenix, registering eight points, seven boards, two assists, one 3-pointer and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

Middleton replaced Michael Beasley in the starting five on Sunday, but he'll be rested for the second leg of this back-to-back set on Monday, meaning Beasley will likely be starting vs. Cleveland tomorrow. Middleton did struggle with his shot a bit in this one, going 3-of-8 from the field, and it could take some time for him to find his footing after spending most of the season watching from the sidelines. Still, he has enough upside to warrant a roster spot in any league.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 28 points on 11-of-13 shooting during Sunday's 100-96 win over the Suns, to go with eight boards, six assists, two blocks, one steal and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

Antetokounmpo also went 6-of-7 from the charity stripe, giving him a phenomenal 87.1 true shooting percentage to accompany his 27.7 usage rate. The Greek Freak scored 15 points during the third quarter without missing a single shot to help give Milwaukee the lead, and there really wasn't anything Phoenix could do to try and stop him. He ranks No. 3 overall for a reason.

Alan Williams had an impressive double-double off the Suns' bench on Sunday, racking up 17 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and two turnovers in a 100-96 loss to the Bucks.

Williams was an efficient 7-of-13 from the field and 3-of-3 from the charity stripe, and the 17 points set a new career-high for the second-year power forward. He's really outplayed started Alex Len over the past two games, and with Williams still only being 24 years old, you could argue that he's in just as much need in development minutes as the 23-year-old Len. Williams is on the radar in deep leagues, but just know that the distribution of the big man minutes in Phoenix could get complicated once Tyson Chandler is brought back into the rotation.
Feb 26 - 7:12 PM

Alex Len started on Sunday, but only managed to get on the court for 14 minutes, ending his evening with six points, nine boards and two steals.

That's two consecutive unimpressive outings for Len, which is particularly concerning given that Tyson Chandler has been out of the rotation for these past two games. Len was again severely outplayed by Alan Williams, so it'll be interesting to see what head coach Earl Watson's rotations look like on Tuesday with a matchup against the Grizzlies. At the moment, Len is more of a deep league stash.
Feb 26 - 7:03 PM

T.J. Warren scored a team-high 23 points on 11-of-14 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Bucks, adding one 3-pointer, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 39 minutes.

Earl Watson said that he'll be looking to give Warren extended minutes as a starter with P.J. Tucker no longer a part of the equation, and so far, he's stayed true to his word. In the two games following the All-Star break, Warren has seen his minutes jump to 38.7 and he's responded with averages of 20.0 points, 6.5 boards and 1.5 steals per contest. As a guy with top-50 upside, Warren needs to be owned in all leagues.
Feb 26 - 6:53 PM

Hollis Thompson will earn another start at SG on Sunday.

Thompson logged 25 scoreless minutes as a starter on Saturday, and there's not a lot to like here with E'Twaun Moore (personal) returning to the lineup.
