Initial X-rays on Larry Sanders' hip were negative on Tuesday, and although he traveled with the team to Utah for the game on Wednesday, he's expected to undergo further evaluation and is officially listed as questionable.

Sanders will "undergo additional evaluations" on Wednesday, leaving his status for the game against the Jazz very much up in the air. "It's pretty painful," he said. "I'll just get a couple more X-rays and take care of it so I can get back as fast as I can." It doesn't sound like Sanders has a good chance to play Wednesday, meaning Samuel Dalembert, who had 35 points, 12 boards and a block on Tuesday, would once again get the call.

Nicolas Batum (elbow) doesn't feel that his new left elbow contusion is as bad as the original injury, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

On Wednesday, Batum looked to have banged his left elbow to the chest of Otto Porter and he did not return. This is the same elbow that caused him to miss six weeks from an injury on Oct. 4, so maybe that's why the team ruled him out at halftime. While we wait for more concrete information or if he's going to be re-evaulated, he is questionable for Friday. Jeremy Lamb had a big game on Wednesday with 24 points and he should be owned in all leagues until Batum gets the all clear.

The Hornets have listed Nicolas Batum (elbow) as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

Game notes are never a sure thing and we don't even know if Batum has undergone any tests yet, but his owners can consider this good news for now. While we wait for more information, make sure Jeremy Lamb isn't sitting on the waiver wire.

Lonzo Ball made 4-of-8 from the field for 11 points during a 113-102 loss to the Kings on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's getting killed on social media for his awful shooting percentages, but he's actually been decent on the road. In his eight road games, he has a sub-par 45.8 TS%, but that plummets to a historically bad 30.6 TS% when he's at Staples Center. He did also miss both of his free throws to drop him to 42.9 percent from the charity stripe on the season -- that's worse than Dwight Howard, Andre Drummond or any free throw percentage qualifier. The good news is he's taking a step in the right direction, but he has a very deep hole to climb out of to be a reliable fantasy asset.

Julius Randle scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 29 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

The Kings were feeding Zach Randolph and that helps explain why Randle saw more run. Coach Luke Walton said he wanted to pick up the pace with Randle against Z-Bo and Brook Lopez got burned in the first quarter. While we did expect Randle to play some more power forward after Larry Nance Jr. (hand) went down, it didn't really happen. In the last 11 games, Randle played just 16 minutes next to Brook Lopez and 243 minutes without him. Randle may not take a hit with Nance back next week.

Harrison Barnes hit a 30-foot jumper at the buzzer to win 95-94 at Memphis on Wednesday, finishing with 22 points, nine rebounds, one assist and that 3-pointer.

It's Harry B's first game-winning shot at the buzzer in his career (video in link below). Barnes is starting to trend up as a scorer with more attempts from the line, big minutes and also the Mavs playing in closer games. The Mavs are still dead last in the Western Conference and they'll get the Thunder and Spurs in their next two, so hopefully they can keep it close again after this win and the OT loss to the Celtics on Monday.

Willie Cauley-Stein scored a season-high 26 points on Wednesday, making 10-of-14 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs with six rebounds, two steals and one assist in 28 minutes.

WCS's previous season-high of 22 points came last Friday and he's trending up in a hurry, to the delight of owners who've stuck with him despite the early-season struggles. The Lakers didn't have an answer for him down low tonight, with all of his makes coming in the restricted area, and it was nice to see him attacking that weakness. Cauley-Stein's next dud could be right around the corner, but this is a timely reminder of his upside -- don't hesitate to grab him if you still can.

Khris Middleton dropped 40 points on 14-of-26 shots in Wednesday's overtime win over the Suns, hitting 9-of-11 free throws with nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and three triples in 46 minutes.

Middleton has a 33.1 usage rate this season with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) off the floor compared to 22.0 with him on, so it’s no surprise that he had a monster game against the non-existent defense of the Suns. Giannis is expected back on Saturday vs. the Jazz, but if you play DFS, keep this game in mind for Middleton if the Greek Freak misses another contest this season.

Eric Bledsoe scored a season-high 30 points against his former Suns in a 113-107 overtime win on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-26 shots and 6-of-13 free throws with seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and two triples in 45 minutes.

Bledsoe is off to a slow start with his new team, but there's nothing like a "revenge game" to get the juices flowing. "I’m with a talented group of guys who can also make plays," Bledsoe said of his new teammates. "So I’ve got to try to find my game a little bit. It takes time." Bledsoe enjoyed a nice bump in usage with Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) resting, and while his value will trend back down after this massive line, he still has enough upside to flirt with early- to mid-round value once his shot starts falling.

Chris Paul made 8-of-11 from the field for 23 points during an easy 125-95 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, 12 assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He did play in the fourth quarter because the Rockets did want him to get to 28 minutes. There seems to be a pretty clear plan here on CP3 with 21 minutes on Thursday, 24 on Saturday and 28 today. In the last three games, CP3 has logged 47 minutes next to James Harden, and he's actually dominated with per-36 averages of 21.6 points, 5.4 boards, 10.1 dimes, 3.1 steals and 3.1 treys -- his numbers are even better without Harden over 26 minutes. The Rockets are a fantasy factor and both guys should be elite fantasy assets.

Greg Monroe had a nice revenge game vs. the Bucks on Wednesday, setting season-highs in points (22) and rebounds (15) with one assist and one block in 32 minutes.

Tyson Chandler (illness) returned to the starting lineup, but in a surprising move for a rebuilding team, the Suns deployed Monroe as the backup center over Alex Len (DNP-CD) — there’s a chance the Suns played him over Len to get some revenge on his former team as well. The Suns have been showcasing Monroe for a trade, but if they can’t salvage what little trade value he has, he’ll likely be bought out at some point. In the meantime, look at Monroe as a short-term source of points and rebounds as long as he stays ahead of Len.

Alex Len picked up a DNP-CD in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Bucks.

Tyson Chandler (illness) was back in action and started, but the Suns deployed Greg Monroe as his backup over Len. That won’t always be the case because the Suns are showcasing both Chandler and Monroe for a potential trade, and the veterans are buyout candidates as well. Until this situation improves, Len may have just been demoted to a stash in fantasy leagues.
