Gerald Henderson caught fire on Tuesday and hit 8-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 24 points to go along with 10 rebounds and three assists in a win over the Magic.

He also had 10 rebounds against the Lakers a couple weeks ago and is hot, coming into tonight's game averaging 15 points, 4.2 boards and 1.2 steals over his last five while shooting 44 percent. He's certainly trending up, so pick him up if he's available in your league. Just beware that he doesn't typically doesn't do a lot other than score.

DeAndre Jordan abused Roy Hibbert for 15 points, 23 rebounds and two blocks on 4-of-8 shooting on Wednesday.

He hit just 7-of-15 shooting, but you don't care about his free throw percentage if you own him, as his struggles from the line are not a surprise, nor is he going to improve from there any time soon. DJ's line will be overshadowed by what Andre Drummond did tonight (19 points, 24 rebounds, four steals, three blocks), but Jordan's line was certainly noteworthy. Make a note to play opposing centers against Hibbert and the Pacers going forward.

Damian Lillard made 10-of-18 from the field for 29 points with three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes during a 104-97 victory over the Bucks.

After a brief slump, Lillard is getting hot again. Over his last four games, he's averaged 26.3 points, 5.3 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.0 triples on 48.1 percent from the field and 89.5 percent from the line. Lillard still hasn't missed a single game in his NBA career and is averaging 2.5 treys per game in his career, too. He's a No. 1 fantasy point guard.

Thomas Robinson excelled in his first start of the season on Wednesday during a win over the Bucks, scoring 15 points with 16 boards, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

The Bucks did a Hack-A-Rob strategy late in the game, so he only made 5-of-15 from the line. Robinson had a couple bright spots last season while the Blazers were missing LaMarcus Aldridge, but he had a number of disappearing acts, too. Coach Terry Stotts said he's going to be mixing up his lineups, so this is not the new norm for Robinson. We'll need to see it again before signing off on him as a pickup in standard leagues.
Dec 18 - 2:34 AM

Brandon Knight scored a team-high 24 points during a 104-97 loss to the Blazers on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He made 10-of-19 from the field and turned the ball over four times for a usage rate of 34.0, which is Russell Westbrook territory and Knight's third highest of the season. Knight is not going to get a big increase in playing time, but his fantasy owners can expect him to take more shots.
Dec 18 - 2:23 AM

Khris Middleton scored 17 points in 33 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with three rebounds, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He started the second half with Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) going down in the second quarter. Middleton is certainly going to benefit with the injury to Jabari Parker (knee) and does have a usage rate of 20, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. His prospective owners just need to remember that coach Jason Kidd runs some wild rotation and Antetokounmpo's injury is not serious.
Dec 18 - 1:59 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo's left ankle injury is not considered serious and there is a chance he plays against the Kings on Thursday.

This is great news. The Bucks absolutely need Antetokounmpo back with Jabari Parker (knee) out for the season. Obviously, this positive outlook could change quickly and he is very questionable to play in a late game. If he's out, Khris Middleton would start and have decent value in standard leagues. Jared Dudley would also gain value.
Dec 18 - 1:43 AM

Marc Gasol hit a 3-pointer off the glass at the buzzer to send Wednesday's game to overtime, finishing with 26 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 46 minutes.

The Grizzlies pulled out a huge 117-116 win in triple overtime and are suddenly the hottest team in the NBA after back-to-back wins against the Warriors and the defending champs. As for Gasol, his knee injury is behind him as he makes a case for MVP. He's flirting with first-round value in standard leagues.
Dec 18 - 1:38 AM

Mason Plumlee made another start for Brook Lopez (back) and had a career-high 23 points, eight rebounds and two blocks on 9-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

Plumlee got off to a dreadful start when Bro-Lo went down, but has now scored 21 and 23 points in his last two games. He's a free throw killer and hit just 5-of-11 of them tonight, but as long as Lopez is out, Plumlee should be in your lineup. He's averaging 16.2 points, 9.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over his last five games, but is shooting just 43 percent at the line during that stretch.
Dec 18 - 1:38 AM

Dwyane Wade hit 12-of-19 shots for a season-high 42 points to go along with four rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

The bad news is he hit just 16-of-21 free throws and committed six turnovers, but the fact he played so well in a pair of back-to-backs (while battling an illness tonight) speaks volumes. The Heat are off until Friday, so hopefully Wade is able to get some rest and will be ready to go. He had 28 on Tuesday against the Nets.
Dec 18 - 1:01 AM

Tim Duncan played 48 minutes against the Grizzlies during a triple-overtime loss on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with 16 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals.

Yeah, he's probably not playing on Friday against Portland. Duncan actually hit a buzzer-beater to send this game to triple-OT, but he missed 10 of his 15 free throws -- tied his most misses in a game in his career (happened four other times). Again, his fantasy owners should plan on him sitting out one if not both back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday.
Dec 18 - 12:45 AM

Danny Green had one of the most unique stat lines in NBA history on Wednesday during a triple-overtime loss to Memphis, scoring a season-high 25 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, five blocks and seven 3-pointers in 52 minutes.

He became the first player in NBA history to make seven triples and block five shots in a game. Unlike last year, Green is seeing consistent minutes and it's led to him flirting with first-round value on the season. He's not going to be this great, but he's absolutely going to smash his ADP.
