The Rockets have traded Marcus Morris to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for a second-round pick, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

It didn't take long to figure where Morris was going and he'll get to team up with his brother Markieff. The Suns are under the cap, so there's a very good chance that they're not done making deals. Given the upside of Morris with his 1.4 triples per game and the fluidity of Phoenix's rotation right now, it's not a terrible idea to give Morris a look for owners looking to add some treys to their 3-point totals.

Otto Porter (hip) will play on Monday vs. the Blazers.

He looked fine during the morning shootaround and he previously said that he was going to play. Porter has been a top-20 stud in standard leagues and his owners will want to make sure he's active, even he's not 100 percent.

Mindaugas Kuzminskas will start on Monday vs. the Hawks.

Lance Thomas (orbital fracture) is now out indefinitely and Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will miss his third game in a row, so there are a lot of minutes up for grabs in New York. Kuzminskas has played extended minutes in his previous two games with averages of 14.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.0 steal and 1.5 triples, so deep-league owners can give him a look if he plays well against the Hawks.

Ron Baker is starting at shooting guard on Monday vs. the Hawks, sending Courtney Lee to the bench.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek threatened to make lineup changes after Sunday's blowout loss to the Raptors, but now we know that he wasn't just blowing off some steam. Baker has had some nice moments this season, but he has very little upside and fantasy owners can simply monitor his progress from the waiver wire. The Knicks' defense takes another hit with this lineup switch.

Updating a previous report, Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) will not play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

He was supposed to warm up and was considered a game-time call after going through shootaround, but the Knicks are ruling him out well before tip-off which is a bit concerning. This will now be his third game in a row on the shelf and his sixth missed game of the season due to his lingering Achilles issue. The Knicks were contemplating starting Porzingis at the five in place of Joakim Noah if he was cleared, so it's going to be interesting to see which direction they go. Mindaugas Kuzminskas is a candidate to see a sizable workload with Lance Thomas (face) also out.

Lance Thomas (left orbital fracture) will not play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

Thomas has cleared the concussion protocol, but he will have to get fitted for a mask to protect his orbital fracture and he's considered to be out indefinitely. Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is a game-time call and will slide back into the starting lineup if he's cleared, but Mindaugas Kuzminskas is looking at a larger role off the bench in the short term and is worth keeping an eye on in deeper formats.

The Cavaliers will not rest LeBron James, Kevin Love or Kyrie Irving on Monday vs. the Warriors according to ESPN.

Some within the Cavaliers' organization "briefly pondered sitting out the trio," but they decided against it because they want to "gain valuable repetition" against the Warriors. The owners of James, Irving and Love can deploy them with confidence.

T.J. McConnell (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks.

He has a right wrist sprain, but he should be considered day-to-day barring another update. McConnell has thrived as the starting PG, so stick with him unless we learn that he will miss additional time. Sergio Rodriguez will likely move back into the starting lineup, but the 76ers will probably want to get an extended look at Chasson Randle before his 10-day contract expires later this week.

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek threatened to make changes to his starting lineup after Sunday's blowout loss to the Raptors.

"I had to start looking at different possibilities with that group," Hornacek said. "This isn’t the first time that it has happened. We saw the second group come in there and play hard and get after it defensively and consequently they got stuff on the offensive end.’’ None of the Knicks' starters played more than 29 minutes in the blowout, but it's possible Hornacek was keeping them fresh for Monday's game vs. Atlanta. The Knicks are tipping off in just a few hours, so we won't have to wait long to figure out if Hornacek was simply blowing off some steam. For what it's worth, many beat reporters are speculating that Joakim Noah will move to the bench with Kristaps Porzinigs (Achilles) moving to the five, assuming he's cleared to play.

Enes Kanter scored a season-high 29 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Sunday’s 122-118 victory over the Kings.

Kanter recorded his 12th double-double of the season tonight and his fourth in the last six games. He finished one rebound short of tying his season-high. Steven Adams (head) left tonight’s game after hitting his head on the floor and was being evaluated for a concussion. If he misses any time, Kanter will see a boost. He faces the Clippers on Monday, a team he is averaging 23.3 minutes, 14 points, 10.3 rebounds, and one steal against this season.
Jan 16 - 12:36 AM

Doug McDermott scored 20 of his career-high 31 points during in the second quarter of Sunday's road win in Charlotte, finishing 9-of-16 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line.

McDermott caught fire in the first half and helped the Bulls escape with a 108-104 road win, benefiting from extra minutes with Nikola Mirotic (illness) unavailable tonight. The third-year SF out of Creighton has had some nice moments over the past month, but tonight's eruption (against a tough Grizzlies' defense) doesn't necessarily make him worth owning. He added six boards, one steal and one block tonight, but for standard-league purposes he's only worth owning if you need a 3-point specialist.
Jan 16 - 12:18 AM

Patrick Beverley got back on track during Sunday's game in Brooklyn, scoring 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and zero turnovers.

Beverley played just 27 minutes in the blowout road win, and it was great to see his shot falling -- he averaged only 5.0 points on 25.0 percent shooting in his previous four games. In spite of the recent slump, Bev has been a terrific fantasy asset with career-high averages in boards (6.1), assists (4.4) and steals (1.5), to go along with 8.9 points and 1.6 threes.
