Latest Headlines

LeBron James shot 12-of-18 from the field for 32 points with seven boards, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in a win over the Lakers on Sunday.

Feel free to call the hyperbole police on us, but LeBron is having one of the best runs ever. He became the third player in NBA history to score 30 points per game and shoot over 60 percent in five consecutive games. If you're scoring at home, Moses Malone and Adrian Dantley were the other two. LeBron and the Heat won all five games and they're 22-3 at home on the season.

Shabazz Muhammad (oblique) could return to action in as little as one week.

Jan 31 - 6:42 PM

Zach LaVine (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Cavs on Saturday.

It's going to come down to the wire and the Wolves tend to play things close to the vest most nights. LaVine rolled his ankle badly on Friday, but he was able to return. If he's out and if Mo Williams can't go, it'll be Lorenzo Brown against Kyrie Irving.

Kevin Durant (toe) is going through warmups on Saturday before the game against the Grizzlies.

He is a game-time decision and we should have news on his status soon. It appears Durant is at least trying to suit up for a very important game. His owners will want to check back soon. If he's out, Perry Jones will start while Dion Waiters and Reggie Jackson benefit most.
Jan 31 - 6:31 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will be out for at least one month.

More details are reportedly coming out soon, so we will be sure to pass that information along. Sefolosha was only averaging 19 minutes per game this season, so his absence shouldn't make too many fantasy implications. Kent Bazemore will likely fill the void for the Hawks, and with DeMarre Carroll also out with an Achilles injury, Bazemore is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Jan 31 - 6:22 PM

Kenneth Faried (illness) and Darrell Arthur (illness) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

That means there should be a lot of J.J. Hickson and the Nuggets will also use Wilson Chandler as a stretch four. That should also open up some minutes for Alonzo Gee and Danilo Gallinari, as well. Faried should be back for Tuesday against the 76ers.
Jan 31 - 6:01 PM

Victor Oladipo (Achilles) will not play against the Mavericks on Saturday.

There is no word on the severity of the issue, but it doesn't sound serious. Oladipo hasn't had any noteworthy Achilles issues in his NBA career and hopefully this is just a one-time thing. Evan Fournier will get the start and is worth a long look as a spot starter.
Jan 31 - 5:53 PM

Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) and Amir Johnson (foot) will play against the Wizards on Saturday.

Valanciunas was liming badly on Friday night, but it sounds like he's ready to go without a restriction. Johnson and JV back in the lineup hurt the chances of Patrick Patterson having a good game. Fantasy owners can use Valanciunas in a sub-par matchup.
Jan 31 - 5:47 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness) will not play against the Magic on Saturday.

He missed Friday and the Mavs gave minutes to Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villanueva and Al-Farouq Aminu. The Mavs were awesome with their second unit in the fourth quarter, so maybe coach Rick Carlisle gives more minutes to Villanueva and Aminu. All that said, there is a lot of risk in playing any of these three guys.
Jan 31 - 5:37 PM

John Wall (migraines, ankle, Achilles) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

The Wizards had Garrett Temple with the first unit at shootaround, but Wall is going to suit up for this big game. The Raptors have been awful at defending point guards with Jarrett Jack's 35-point game coming on Friday, so Wall could be in for a productive night. His fantasy owners should have him locked and loaded.
Jan 31 - 5:18 PM

Coach Brad Stevens confirmed on Saturday that Kelly Olynyk (ankle) likely won't play until after the All-Star break.

Olynyk is currently in a walking boot and recently said that he is still dealing with swelling in his ankle, so it's not out of the question that he ends up sitting out longer. Olynyk is only worth stashing in deeper leagues, as his role is too inconsistent to rely upon. In the meantime, expect Jared Sullinger, Brandon Bass and Tyler Zeller to all benefit in the short-term.
Jan 31 - 2:03 PM

DeMarre Caroll (Achilles) and Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will not play vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

Kent Bazemore will play all the minutes he can handle on Saturday, and is worth a long look in deeper leagues. Carroll should still be held onto in most leagues, and the Hawks probably just didn't want to risk him against the lowly 76ers. We will provide additional updates as needed.
