Larry Sanders was ejected in the third quarter of Friday's game for two technical fouls.

He leads the NBA in ejections with five and no other player in the league has more than three. What's more, Sanders is also third in the league in fouls per game, so he'd be even more of a beast if the NBA decided to give the refs some time off. Sanders finished with six points, 12 boards and two blocks against the Pacers. He should be ready for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

Serge Ibaka put up 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting, with nine rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists, two turnovers, and one block during the Thunder's Christmas Day win over the Spurs.

Ibaka had a slow start to the year, but his shot-blocking has been consistent (second in the league with 2.4 per game), and the career-high 1.3 three-pointers per game has been a nice surprise. He should only get better as the year goes on, so it would be wise to send out a few buy-low offers before he really starts rolling.

Steven Adams double-doubled against the Spurs on Christmas, scoring 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting (6-of-12 from the charity stripe), to go with 15 rebounds, three blocks, two steals, two turnovers, and one assist.

Adams had a plus/minus rating of plus-27 in this one, and his aggressiveness on the boards was a big reason OKC came out with a win. If you can live with horrific free throw shooting, he's worth a look as a shot-blocking and rebounding specialist in deeper leagues.

Russell Westbrook looked dominant during the Thunder's Christmas Day win over the Spurs, scoring 34 points on 14-of-28 shooting (6-of-8 from the line) to go with 11 assists, five rebounds, a season-high five steals, and four turnovers.

Westbrook was aggressive all game long, and he has definitely entered the conversation as an MVP candidate with averages of 28.2 points, 7.1 assists, 5.8 rebounds, 2.0 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. His 3.8 turnovers per game are unfortunate, but given the elite value he bumps into all the surrounding categories, it's easy to forgive the miscues.

Shawn Marion will start at power forward for Cleveland's Christmas Day game vs. Miami, with Kevin Love shifting over to the center spot.

It's surprising that Marion, and not Tristan Thompson, will be starting tonight with Anderson Varejao (Achillies) done for the season. We'll be monitoring the Cavs' rotations closely over the coming weeks, but despite the fact that Thompson is not starting, he should still be owned in all leagues.

Carmelo Anthony logged a season-high 42.5 minutes during the Knicks' Christmas Day loss to the Wizards, putting up 34 points (13-of-28 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, and three turnovers.

Melo has been logging heavy minutes over the past three games, however, that has not resulted in a win for New York. The Knicks have lost 16 of their past 17 games, and Anthony has admitted that his knee is still bothering him. Questions about Melo potentially shutting things down aren't going away anytime soon, so owners should seriously consider trying to sell-high while he's still in uniform.
Dec 25 - 4:47 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. had a rough game on Christmas, shooting 3-of-10 from the field for eight points, three rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block, and one turnover.

Hardaway Jr. has plenty of opportunity with both Iman Shumpert (shoulder) and J.R. Smith (foot) sidelined, but he's now had two bad outings in a row. He still played 30 minutes, so owners should try and remain patient here. If he struggles again vs. the Kings on Saturday, there will be some cause for concern.
Dec 25 - 4:36 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) did not practice on Thursday, and remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Houston.

If Randolph is forced to sit on Friday, his minutes will be split up between Jon Leuer and Kosta Koufos, and if Leuer draws the start he'll be a decent play in daily leagues. Koufos can be viewed as a shot-blocking specialist in deeper leagues.
Dec 25 - 4:15 PM

Tony Allen (eye) returned to practice on Thursday, and is looking probable for Friday's game vs. Houston.

Memphis is no longer listing Allen on their injury report, so it's looking very likely he will return to the lineup for a difficult matchup vs. the Rockets. His return will likely send Tayshaun Prince back to the bench, and hurt the limited value of Vince Carter. Check back for an official update on Allen's status closer to Friday's tip.
Dec 25 - 4:09 PM

Chris Bosh (calf) will not suit up for Miami's Christmas Day game vs. Cleveland.

This will be Bosh's seventh consecutive game out of the lineup, and Dwyane Wade will again be the main man on offense for Miami. Expect more minutes for Shawne Williams and Udonis Haslem, with Williams offering the most upside.
Dec 25 - 3:25 PM

Bradley Beal scored 17 points during the Wizards' Christmas Day win over the Knicks, adding five rebounds, five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, and two turnovers.

Beal has now recorded at least one steal in his past seven outing, and he's currently putting up mid-round value on the year with averages of 15.1 points, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers per game. He's a primary component of the Wizards’ offense, and will continue to be a reliable source of points, 3-pointers, and steals.
Dec 25 - 3:06 PM

John Wall looked fabulous against the Knicks on Christmas, scoring 24 points on 10-of-17 shooting with 11 assists, six rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal, and three turnovers.

Wall basically did whatever he wanted today, and the Knicks looked like they didn't get the "no gifts" memo. John Wall currently leads the league with the most 20-point, 10-assist games this season with nine, and he's second in the league in assist per game with 10.4. He's putting up early-round value, and has established himself as an elite point guard in the league. Enjoy.
