Dion Waiters left Monday's game during the first half due to knee soreness and Wayne Ellington started the second half in his place.

Waiters finished the game with just four points on 2-of-7 shooting, two rebounds, two assists and one block in 12 minutes. Beat writer Joe Gabriele says the absence is precautionary, so owners can evaluate the Cavs backcourt like they normally would for the most part.

Kyle Lowry kept his foot on the gas pedal in Monday's win over the Pistons with 25 points, seven assists and thee boards in 38 minutes.

He also had two steals and two triples and was an efficient 9-of-14 from the field. He's been unstoppable over his last three games with averages of 27.0 points, 6.3 assists, 4.0 boards, 2.0 steals and 4.7 3-pointers, and the only player that has been better in standard leagues over that span is John Wall.

Nikola Jokic played just 14 minutes in Monday's loss to the Nets, scoring two points with three boards, one steal and one turnover.

He struggled against Brook Lopez and shot just 1-of-5 from the field. The Nuggets gave Jusuf Nurkic 17 minutes and played Kenneth Faried next to Danilo Gallinari in the frontcourt down the stretch, so this was likely just a matchup-based decision. Jokic also played just 19 minutes vs. the Knicks on Sunday, but it's still not time for his owners to panic. Stick with him and expect him to be much better vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.

According to sources of ESPN's Marc Stein, the Kings are expected to fire coach George Karl in the coming days.

Karl has been on the hot seat for a while now and it doesn't help that the Kings have lost four straight games, and the last three haven't exactly been close. The Kings don't play again until Wednesday vs. the 76ers, so it will be interesting to see if they make a change prior to that one. Kings assistant coach Corliss Williamson is said to be the favorite to replace Karl, but that is all speculation for now.

LeBron James had his first triple-double of the season during a 120-100 win over the Kings on Monday, scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

It's the 40th triple-double of the season, which is the seventh most in NBA history. James is getting more shots now even with Kyrie Irving coming around, averaging 25.0 points, 7.6 boards, 6.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 treys. He'll hang around late-first value going forward.
Feb 8 - 10:11 PM

Kyrie Irving handed out a season-high 12 assists against the Kings on Monday with 32 points, three rebounds, one block and five 3-pointers.

He failed to bust out before tonight because his 3-point shooting wasn't dropping. That wasn't the case tonight as Irving hit 5-of-8 from there in this win. His breakout last year had a lot to do with hitting treys, so expect him to keep it going and improve from a quiet start this season.
Feb 8 - 10:06 PM

Joe Johnson banked in a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to help the Nets beat the Nuggets 105-104 on Monday.

Some will say it was luck, but Johnson has been doing this his entire career. He finished with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting with eight assists, three boards, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes. He did score 20 or more points in two different games last week, but he still has very little upside and it's possible that the Nets negotiate a buyout so that he can join a contender. Regardless, it was nice to see him turn back the clock tonight.
Feb 8 - 10:01 PM

Kemba Walker scored 30 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and four 3-pointers during a 108-91 win over the Bulls on Monday.

He's having an awesome year and he might be able to get an All-Star nod with Jimmy Butler (knee) possibly not ready to play in Toronto. Walker should be close to a top-20 player going forward.
Feb 8 - 9:59 PM

Nik Stauskas suffered a neck injury in the fourth quarter on Monday against the Clippers.

He was sitting on the court for about 10 seconds before he walked back to the locker room under his own power. Stauskas is likely done for the night, checking out with five points, one rebound and one 3-pointer. He was replaced by Robert Covington.
Feb 8 - 9:00 PM

Marc Gasol is dealing with a right mid-foot sprain and will not return to Monday's game vs. the Blazers.

This is the same foot issue that has been a problem for him recently, and he was considered questionable to even suit up. He lasted just 11 minutes before hobbling back to the locker room, so the Grizzlies might be more inclined to hold him out until the All-Star break. In the meantime, Zach Randolph will play more center and Ryan Hollins will play more off the bench.
Feb 8 - 8:59 PM

Meyers Leonard will start next to Mason Plumlee on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

The Grizzlies start a frontcourt featuring Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, so the Blazers need Leonard's size tonight. Leonard has been inconsistent all season, so he's not a great add in most leagues. The move will send Moe Harkless to the bench.
Feb 8 - 8:08 PM

Festus Ezeli had arthroscopic surgery to clean debris from his left knee and he will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

If he returned to the court in six weeks, there would only be a couple of weeks left in the regular season. Needless to say, it's safe to drop Ezeli in fantasy leagues. The good news is that Ezeli should be ready to go for the postseason, but in the meantime the Warriors will rely on Marreese Speights to fill the void.
