Wesley Matthews, who was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain on Wednesday, said that the pain is more near his shin than ankle.

Matthews had X-rays which were negative for a fracture, but owners can bet he'll undergo more testing during the All-Star break. It's the second time that Matthews has had to be helped off the court with an injury in February and the Blazers will be cautious with his return. "I went down, I felt a pop and when I didn't feel any pain right away, I thought the worst."

DeMar DeRozan matched his season-high 37 points during a 115-109 win over the Suns on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 37 minutes.

The Raptors are playing some good ball these days with seven wins in their last eight, and it's all about their offense. In their last eight games, their starters have played the second most minutes together among all NBA combos (Wolves starters) and their 123.2 offensive rating in those 133 minutes ranks first in the NBA among the 26 combos with at least 48 minutes. As for DeRozan, he's been awesome in the pick-and-roll this year and he's on pace for his best field goal percentage since 2009-10.

Serge Ibaka scored 21 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

His minutes are soaring these days with 31.2 per game over his last five, and his coach likes what he sees. "He had a pep in his step," head coach Dwane Casey. "I know we look at his points, but my thing was his rebounding. He was quick to the ball. He had three offensive rebounds, kept it alive." Ibaka was absolutely rolling even before this gem this month, averaging 18.4 points, 5.2 boards, 2.0 blocks and 3.0 treys on 55.4 percent from the field. He probably won't be this good, but Ibaka's high-floor game could make him flirt with early-round value the rest of the way.

Troy Daniels scored a career-high 32 points with three rebounds, one block and seven 3-pointers during a 115-109 loss to the Raptors on Wednesday.

The Suns played yet another close game as their bench closed the gap, but the Suns are tied with the Hawks with their 21 losses -- the Suns have played an NBA-high 30 games along with the Celtics. As for Daniels, he tied his season high with seven treys to join Wesley Person as the only Suns players with multiple seven-plus trey games off the bench in a season. Daniels may be earning more late minutes while the Suns are trailing because Josh Jackson has some serious work to do. If you're hunting treys, Daniels may help you there, but he won't do much else.

Nikola Mirotic made another fill-in start during Wednesday's win vs. the Jazz, erupting for a team-high 29 points on 11-of-18 shooting with nine boards, three 3-pointers and two steals.

The Bulls are 4-0 since Mirotic returned on Dec. 8 and they no longer have the worst record in the NBA (that would be the Hawks). He logged 35 minutes tonight, the result of another late scratch for Lauri Markkanen (back). The Bulls' prized rookie was a game-time decision tonight, so this could be his final DNP, but owners should keep an eye on him heading into Friday's game in Milwaukee. If he sits out again, Mirotic should be poised for another big game.

Wayne Ellington drained 7-of-10 shots from downtown to finish Wednesday's home loss with 24 points on 8-of-11 shooting, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 32 minutes.

Ellington was 5-of-5 from deep in the first quarter alone, as he continues to shine as a 3-point specialist. The 24 points were the most he's scored since joining the Heat, and his shooting display was even more impressive against a Blazers team that's limiting opponents to 35.0% shooting from downtown (sixth-lowest in the league). He won't stay this hot forever, but is worth deploying until he cools off.

The Blazers snapped a five-game losing streak in Miami on Wednesday, led by C.J. McCollum's 28 points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals.

C.J. sank 9-of-16 shots and 7-of-7 free throws in 41 minutes of action, and he's scorching the nets over Portland's past three games with combined 28-of-51 shooting (54.9 percent). He's dipped from last season in scoring (21.0 points), FG percentage (45.1%, down from 48.0%) and assists (2.7, down from 3.6), but that hasn't stopped him from returning top-40 value.
Dec 14 - 12:30 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo filled it up as per usual during a 115-108 loss to the Pelicans on Wednesday, scoring 32 points with nine rebounds, four assists, one block, one 3-pointer and five steals in 42 minutes.

The steals move him up to No. 10 for total steals on the year and he holds his No. 10 spot for blocks, so he's obviously the only player in the top 10 for both. Antetokounmpo is fourth in total points thanks to his 33.3 usage rate, which hasn't dropped too much since Eric Bledsoe arrived. The Greek Freak shows no signs of slowing down and the Bucks being in the thick of the playoff race probably helps how many games he plays in April.

John Wall (left knee) returned to action on Wednesday with 13 points, four assists, two steals, one rebound, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes of action.

Wall is 2 1/2 weeks removed from platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections in his left knee, which were intended to reduce inflammation. He was limited to minutes in the "mid 20s" tonight, which we expect will steadily increase over the Wizards' next few games. Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky barely held value in deep leagues while Wall was out, and neither guy belongs on fantasy rosters now that he's back.
Dec 13 - 11:50 PM

Gary Harris scored a career-high 36 points during a 124-118 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, six assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

This was a highlight fest and it was not your 2016-17 version of Harris as most of his buckets were without much help from his teammates. Harris has really blossomed as a scorer with at least 21 points in four of his last six games. Harris' usage rate has increased to 19.9 this season while it hasn't hurt his efficiency too much. He is posting third-round value in standard leagues and there's little reason to think he'll be dropping off from that output as long as he's healthy.
Dec 13 - 11:33 PM

Jamal Murray pulled down a career-high 10 rebounds against the Celtics on Wednesday, adding 28 points, four assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He was very good as a shooter, making all six from the line and 9-of-17 from the field. Coach Mike Malone has always wanted to see Murray get downhill as a scorer and that's exactly what happened against a great defensive team. Plus, Emmanuel Mudiay took another huge step back in this loss despite Murray posting a +8 in plus-minus. Murray has turned in two outstanding games in a row and it'll be interesting to see if this momentum can hold up with Nikola Jokic (ankle) set to come back on Friday. The Blue Arrow's fantasy owners have to be feeling really good after a rocky start to his season.
Dec 13 - 11:27 PM

Jonathon Simmons handed out a career-high eight assists in a losing effort on Wednesday, adding a team-high 20 points, six rebounds and one steal in 39 minutes.

This marks Orlando's eighth consecutive loss to the Clippers, a streak going back to Nov. 2013. Simmons did all he could for the short-handed Magic, but finished 6-of-17 from the field and 6-of-8 from the FT line -- Orlando as a team shot just 42.2 percent. Simmons should continue to have a glaring green light offensively until the Magic get guys like Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier back in the mix.
