Updating a previous report, Wesley Matthews (ankle) did not start Saturday's game.

Matthews was on the active lineup and there was optimism that he'd play one day after leaving the arena with a walking boot and crutches, though it hardly raises any eyebrows considering his iron-man constitution. He's questionable to play on Monday.

The Kings are weighing the dismissal of coach George Karl, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Well, that didn't take long and it's hard not to think about DeMarcus Cousins' comments from earlier this evening. Cousins said the team losing isn't because of the players and said it's "a bigger issue." There were some pretty heavy rumors of Karl and Cousins having problems back in the summer and it looks like it's back on. The Kings are in Boston on Sunday, so that should be fun with all the Boogie-Boston trade rumors from the summer, as well.

Trey Burke (flu-like symptoms) will not be traveling with the team to Phoenix for Saturday's game.

While Burke could technically catch a later flight to Arizona, it seems much more likely that he'll spend Saturday's game on the sidelines, which would result in heavy minutes for Rodney Hood and Raul Neto. Hood will get an extremely favorable matchup tomorrow, and he'd be someone to target in DFS.

LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled during Friday's easy win over the Mavs, tallying 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with 10 boards, two assists, two steals, two blocks and one turnover in 28 minutes.

Aldridge has been playing extremely well since Tim Duncan (knee) went down, producing averages of 20.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and just 1.5 turnovers per game which has been good enough for top-20 value in standard leagues. However, Aldridge has never averaged more than 1.2 swats per game, so now seems like a good sell-high opportunity for a guy that's producing unsustainable numbers.

Rudy Gobert made the Bucks offense look like it belonged in the NCAA during an 84-81 win on Friday, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, one assist, five steals and three blocks in 38 minutes.

His five steals are a career high, he made 6-of-7 from the field and he didn't turn the ball over. The Jazz are winning with defense and coach Quin Snyder is OK with that. "I think we are an offensive juggernaut," Snyder said. "We've scored over 80 for two straight games." As for Gobert, he's inside of the top 15 over his last 10 games and is back to being a fantasy monster.

LeBron James struggled with his shot during Friday's loss to the Celtics, going 9-of-23 from the field on his way to 30 points, seven boards, four assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers in 38 minutes.

The Cavs self-destructed during the closing minutes of the game, and James was not at all pleased with the results saying: "It’s not about the wins and losses but it’s about how we lost. How we lost, it hurts. It’s been a while since I felt like this." LBJ will likely be looking for blood Saturday vs. the Pelicans, and he could very well produce a monstrous line with a matchup against the second-worst team at defending the small forward position.

Danilo Gallinari scored a season-high 33 points during a 115-110 win over the Bulls on Friday with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

He made all 18 attempts from the line and killed the Bulls with his slow-mo style of scoring. Gallinari is the first player to take at least 18 attempts from the line and make all of them since Kobe Bryant in 2013. He was cooling off a bit before this one and only has sixth-round value in his last 10, but expect him to trend up.
Feb 6 - 1:12 AM

Derrick Rose scored 30 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two turnovers in 35 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday during a 115-110 loss.

He was very busy, making 13-of-27 from the field with his 37.1 usage rate in the second half. If Jimmy Butler (knee) misses time, we'll be seeing a ton of Rose in the offense. His upside still isn't high because of low defensive stats and treys, but he'll likely be better for DFS.
Feb 6 - 12:57 AM

Jimmy Butler reportedly hyperextended his left knee, and while he'll likely sit out Saturday's game vs. the Timberwolves there's a chance he can play Monday vs. Charlotte or Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

Butler is going to get an MRI on Saturday morning, but this report is great news if it turns out to be true. Owners can expect another update tomorrow morning, but with Jimmy likely sidelined on Saturday, Tony Snell figures to enter the starting five with E'Twuan Moore seeing some increased opportunity on offense. Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol (hand) will be busy on offense for however long Jimmy Buckets is out.

Evan Turner double-doubled in 32 minutes off the bench during Friday's win over the Cavs, tallying 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 12 boards, six assists, one block and one turnover.

Jae Crowder (ankle) said after the game that he felt like he was playing on one leg, so he may be forced to the sidelines on Sunday vs. Sacramento, which would likely result in Turner returning to the starting lineup. While Evan isn't the most exciting guy to own, he's been producing late-round value over the past month behind averages of 9.6 points, 4.5 boards, 4.8 assists and 1.0 steal on 48.5 percent shooting. He's worth owning in most leagues, particularly with Crowder hurting.
Feb 6 - 12:21 AM

Joe Johnson scored 27 points with six rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Kings during a 128-119 victory.

The Kings should be embarrassed and they probably are. This is Joe's first game with more than 25 points and more than 10 assists since 2008. The Nets scored a season high tonight and this came out of nowhere. He is coming off a 20-point game, but Johnson's ceiling is really just a late-round guy.
Feb 6 - 12:21 AM

DeMarcus Cousins put up his first triple-double of the season with 24 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Nets during a 128-119 loss on Friday.

Boogie was not happy at the end of this game as his team allowed the Nets to score a season-high 128. "Not going to keep blaming the guys in the locker room," Cousins said. "We got a bigger issue." Fire up the grass and snake emojis? The Kings are fading fast while the Jazz have won five straight, so the Kings have a tough job on their hands. Expect the DeMarcus Cousins trade rumors to start up in some capacity even if they don't hold a lot of weight.
