Hawks signed G Shelvin Mack for the remainder of the season.

Mack is already on his third NBA team since helping Butler to the Championship Game of the 2011 Final Four. The combo guard is mere depth as Devin Harris (foot) and Lou Williams (ACL) are both sidelined.

Amare Stoudemire (rest) and J.R. Smith (heel) are out for Saturday's game against the Suns.

It is just a scheduled day of rest for Amare, and he should be good to go Sunday against Toronto. On the other hand, Smith is also out against Toronto and won't even travel with the team, meaning Tim Hardaway Jr. should continue to stay hot. Cole Aldrich will draw the start in place of Amare, and is worth a look in deeper leagues.

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will play in Saturday's game against the Suns, and is listed in the starting lineup.

This is excellent news for his owners, and coach Derek Fisher also said that he is hoping Melo would be able to play on Sunday. Melo is obviously a must-start option when he is healthy, and should be in a for good game against the up-tempo Suns.

Larry Sanders will return from his one-game suspension on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

He was suspended for Thursday's game against the kings for pushing Nicolas Batum in the back, but the Bucks will be glad to have him back in time to play against DeAndre Jordan. However, Sanders has been very inconsistent this season with averages of 7.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game, so owners may want to bench him until he turns it around.

Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili may be held out of Saturday's game against Dallas in order to rest after Friday's second consecutive triple-overtime loss.

"It's different every night [with the injuries], so it keeps them out of rhythm and we are wearing some guys down," coach Gregg Popovich said. "Timmy [Duncan] is a big worry in that respect and so is Manu [Ginobili]." Duncan played 43 minutes on Saturday, while Ginobili played close to 30, so it is very likely that they will be held out. Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes would benefit the most in Duncan's absence, while Marco Belinelli and Danny Green would soak up Ginobili's minutes. Stay tuned.

Kobe Bryant struggled with fatigue in Friday's loss to the Thunder, finishing with just nine points, eight assists and eight boards in 35 minutes.

He also shot just 3-of-15 from the field and turned the ball over three times on the night. "I did not have my legs tonight," Kobe said. "It’s frustrating and I have to figure it out." While he will bounce back from this performance, it will be interesting to see how coach Byron Scott uses his star player down the stretch, especially with the Lakers rapidly falling out of the playoff race. However, Kobe will likely have to be dragged off the court before he sits out, and owners shouldn't have too many concerns just yet.

Russell Westbrook scored 31 points on 9-of-22 shooting (13-of-13 FTs) with five rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Lakers.

Westbrook is producing at a top-5 level in 8-cat leagues since his return and a top-8 level in 9-cat formats. With or without Kevin Durant on the court, he could easily continue this pace and he's currently in the MVP conversation.
Dec 20 - 2:31 AM

Reggie Jackson busted out of his slump on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting (3-of-5 3PTs, 4-of-4 FTs) with three rebounds, five assists and one block in 36 minutes off the bench.

Yes, Kevin Durant was out and yes this came against the Lakers, but it's probably just good for Jackson to see the ball go through the hoop. It sure seems like the Thunder are going out of their way to let Jackson know what the pecking order is in OKC now that the guys are back, but tonight's output is a reminder of both his short-term value and long-term value in the event one of the Thunder's big guns gets hurt again.
Dec 20 - 2:28 AM

Blake Griffin scored 32 points on 9-of-20 shooting (14-of-18 FTs) with 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal in Friday's loss to the Nuggets.

Griffin's general performance has improved over the last few weeks but his low rebounding totals have kept him from truly capitalizing on the momentum in fantasy leagues. Hopefully for owners this signals the beginning of a comeback in that regard. Chris Paul went for 17 and 15 with three steals and DeAndre Jordan posted 11 and 14 with three steals and a block.
Dec 20 - 2:21 AM

Tim Duncan logged 43 minutes in the Spurs' second straight triple-overtime loss on Friday, scoring 32 points on 12-of-24 shooting with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks in the 129-119 thriller.

This was the first back-to-back triple overtime set of games for a team since the Baltimore Bullets did it in December of 1951. The Spurs have to get on a plane and go to Dallas for Saturday's game, and we'd be shocked if Duncan is allowed to play in that one. Then again, we were surprised when he played tonight so owners need to stay tuned.
Dec 20 - 2:13 AM

Danny Green scored 27 points on 9-of-21 shooting (including six threes) with 10 rebounds and one steal over 44 minutes in Friday's triple-overtime loss to the Blazers.

Green is returning top 15-25 value (9/8 cat) and while he's getting heavy run this week with the absences and overtime games, his production isn't the outlier that many believe it to be. The real difference in his value lies in the increase in trust and minutes that Gregg Popovich has been willing to give him this season, and it would be pretty surprising if he's not a top-40 play at the end of the year.
Dec 20 - 2:08 AM

Damian Lillard was outstanding in the Blazers' triple-overtime win in San Antonio on Friday, scoring a career-high 43 points on 16-of-29 shooting (4-of-9 3PTs, 7-of-8 FTs) with three rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in 53 minutes.

Lillard stole the show late and his mid first-round value is a solid return on his second round ADP. LaMarcus Aldridge went for 32 and 16 with five steals, two blocks, and a three, and Wesley Matthews scored 16 points on 5-of-19 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and two threes for the shorthanded Blazers.
