Jameer Nelson (knee) will not travel to Philadelphia for Tuesday's game against the Sixers.

Nelson is still battling his bruised left knee and will not play on Tuesday as a result. Without him, Beno Udrih and E'Twaun Moore will continue to split duties at point guard.

Dejounte Murray has taken over the reins from Tony Parker and had one of the best games of his career with 19 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and a career-high seven steals on 8-of-15 shooting in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

"(Parker) is still going to be an important part of what we do," coach Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday. "But Dejounte is a young talent and we need to find out exactly what we have there. So it is time." Murray was right on time with a monster line tonight, and while Parker and Patty Mills will still shine from time to time, Murray is the guy you want to own in fantasy right now. Go get him.

Russell Westbrook hit the game-winning layup over the outstretched arms of Jarrett Allen in a 109-108 victory over the Nets on Tuesday, scoring 32 points in 36 minutes.

That's not a bad way to celebrate being named to his seventh All-Star game. The Nets have allowed the third most fantasy points to PGs this season, so this was the perfect storm for Russ. He hit 12-of-27 shots and 8-of-11 free throws, adding six assists, five rebounds, two steals and one turnover. His Thunder are rolling with five straight wins and they will look to make it six on Thursday vs. the Wizards.

Kyle Anderson played 34 minutes and hit 5-of-10 shots for 10 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's 114-102 win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

Anderson guarded LeBron James for much of the night and had his fourth double-double of the season. He's played really well in his last three games, averaging 8.3 points, 10.3 boards, 3.7 assists, 2.7 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers over that stretch. And with Kawhi Leonard out until further notice, and with Anderson's confidence soaring, he should be one of the hottest pickups in fantasy hoops right now.

LeBron James had 28 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, a block and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to become the youngest player in NBA history to hit 30,000 points for his career.

LeBron played well, but Kevin Love was rather quiet and Isaiah Thomas is still clearly trying to shake off the rust after missing the first couple months of the season with his hip injury. James is still a fantasy monster and sits as the No. 5 player in nine-cat this season. But his teammates aren't giving him much help, which is fine in fantasy, but not working in reality.

Kevin Love played 27 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots (0-for-1 from downtown) for 10 points, 11 rebounds and a steal in Tuesday's 114-102 loss to the Spurs.

Apparently the message the team reportedly sent to Love on Monday was not received. The reeling Cavs have lost two straight, six of their last seven and are 3-7 in January. They still have the potential to flip the switch and turn it around, but things are not going well in Cleveland right now. Love may not be feeling well, but he had no choice but to be out there trying his best tonight. And LaMarcus Aldridge and Dejounte Murray dominated them in the win. Tyronn Lue said after the game that a lineup change is coming, but it's hard to imagine Love not being a starter for the Cavs.

Michael Beasley will start against the Warriors on Tuesday in place of Kristaps Porzingis (left knee).

He gets a massive usage rate bump with KP off the floor, so he's an excellent streaming option tonight. Porzingis isn't known for his durability, so it's worth picking up Beasley until we find out more about the severity. Check back after the game for an update.
Jan 23 - 10:13 PM

Garrett Temple hit 14-of-17 shots and four 3-pointers for a career-high 34 points, two rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Magic.

De'Aaron Fox went down with abdominal tightness and didn't return after just 11 minutes, and Temple was really the only option left at point guard for the Kings, as George Hill was rested and Frank Mason and Fox were hurt. Temple didn't even play on Monday (because he's a veteran) and hadn't scored more than 16 points in a game since prior to Christmas. Tonight was his night, but it's hard to see him being a hot pickup unless Fox is going to miss multiple games with his injury. Temple has just eight 20-point games over his seven-year career.
Jan 23 - 9:55 PM

Willie Cauley-Stein hit 9-of-18 shots for 21 points, nine rebounds, four assists, a steal and five blocks in 33 minutes of Tuesday's 105-99 win over the Magic.

That's a fat stat line and he's been hot for a few weeks now. His five-game averages are up to 16 points, 9.2 boards, 1.8 steals and 1.2 blocks on 42 percent shooting, and he should get a ton of minutes in the middle the rest of the way for the Kings.
Jan 23 - 9:49 PM

JaMychal Green (right ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

This will be his second game in a row on the shelf and it's never a good sign when a player is ruled out a day early. Jarell Martin (left knee and left ankle) is questionable, but he'll be a solid streaming option in Green's place if he can play.
Jan 23 - 9:41 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) and Brandon Ingram (ankle) will play on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

KPC is officially back after a two-game absence. Josh Hart loses a lot of value with KCP back in the lineup, while Jordan Clarkson loses some appeal too. KCP has season averages of 13.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.1 triples, and he belongs in standard-league lineups.
Jan 23 - 8:51 PM

De'Aaron Fox (abdominal tightness) will not return on Tuesday vs. the Magic.

Fox was the only true PG on the active roster, so Garrett Temple started the second half and we should see Bogdan Bogdanovic handle the ball a little more while Fox is out. Hopefully this isn't a serious injury and Fox can be cleared in time for Thursday's game vs. the Heat. He finished with seven points in 11 minutes.
