Michael Beasley scored 25 points on 12-of-17 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and six turnovers in Friday's loss.

Beasley said after the game that he has stopped listening to everybody and is doing what worked for him originally, which in English means he's going to do the same thing as he normally does but with greater confidence. Add him and deploy him at your own risk.

Klay Thompson scored 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with seven 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Thompson torched Orlando from beyond the arc, scoring all 21 of his points from distance and missing just two of those nine attempts. This was also the second time the Splash Brothers each drained seven triples in the same game, a feat that no other pair of teammates has ever done more than once.

Elfrid Payton posted a 23-point, 10-assist double-double during Sunday's loss to the Warriors, to go with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 39 minutes of play.

Payton has been steadily ascending the rankings over the past month, and with D.J. Augustin (ankle) going down in this one, he could be looking major minutes for the Magic moving forward. This was the ninth time this season that Payton had eclipsed the 20-point mark, and over the past few weeks, he’s been a top-75 guy with averages of 17.8 points, 6.7 dimes, 1.2 steals, 1.0 triple and 2.8 turnovers per game on 50.0 percent shooting from the field.

Stephen Curry was en fuego during the Warriors 118-98 blowout victory over the Magic, tallying 27 points, seven 3-pointers, four boards, six assists and three turnovers in 30 minutes of floor time.

Orlando had precisely zero answers for Curry in this one, as he regularly lit them up from beyond the arc (as per usual) and also showcased his elite passing and decision making abilities during the blowout win. He was the primary factor in Golden State going off for 42 points during the third quarter (their 11th time scoring at least 40 points in a quarter this season), and he may have had an even crazier game if it weren’t for the lopsided score.

Rick Carlisle said that while Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will miss Sunday's game against the Lakers, there's a chance he could get back out there sometime next week.

Sunday will mark Bogut's sixth straight game on the sidelines, but it sounds like he should be able to get back out there for at least one game of Dallas' upcoming Wednesday-Thursday back-to-back set. Bogut's return will significantly cut into Salah Mejri and Dwight Powell's minutes.

J.J. Barea (left calf strain) is likely out until the All-Star break according to coach Rick Carlisle.

This isn't a surprise because Barea can't seem to shake this calf issue. With Barea out, Deron Williams and Seth Curry are locked into a heavy workload for the foreseeable future and should be owned in standard leagues. Devin Harris will also play more, but he's not an attractive fantasy asset.
Jan 22 - 2:07 PM

Steven Adams (concussion) is traveling to Utah for Monday's game against the Jazz.

There's no word that he's officially cleared the league mandated concussion protocol testing, but him traveling with the team is an encouraging sign. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, and if he is able to get back to the court, Jerami Grant would more than likely return to the bench.
Jan 22 - 2:05 PM

Tyler Johnson (left shoulder strain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

Johnson missed more than half of the 2015-16 season after having surgery on his left shoulder before ultimately returning for the playoffs, so this is a concern. However, the Heat are listing him as day-to-day for now. Coach Erik Spoelstra also downplayed the injury on Saturday and said that Johnson is not planning to get X-rays or an MRI. If Johnson is out Monday, Dion Waiters will be the primary beneficiary and he's coming off a monster 33-point effort against the Bucks.
Jan 22 - 1:57 PM

Blake Griffin (knee) has been upgraded from "out" to "doubtful" for Monday's game vs. the Hawks.

Griffin has made it clear that he intends to return this week, so if we don't see him on Monday he could make his return to the lineup on Tuesday vs. the 76ers. The Clippers play a total of three times in Week 14, so starting Griffin in weekly formats is a bit too risky unless we get word that he will give it a go on Monday. Luc Mbah a Moute, Austin Rivers, Marreese Speights and Brandon Bass all take a hit with Griffin nearing a return, but Rivers is still worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 22 - 1:17 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) was able to practice on Sunday.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he's unsure of KCP's status for Monday's game vs. the Kings, but it sounds like he's on the verge of returning from a four-game absence. If KCP is able to give it a go on Monday, both Stanley Johnson and Reggie Bullock will lose most of their value. KCP should be stashed in all standard leagues.
Jan 22 - 1:12 PM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

X-rays were negative and the Magic are calling the injury a right ankle sprain. Augustin was able to walk gingerly under his own power to the locker room, so hopefully it's not too serious. He finished with zero points, one assist and one rebound in five minutes. Elfrid Payton and C.J. Watson will log a ton of minutes the rest of the game and we may see more of Mario Hezonja as well.
Jan 22 - 12:55 PM

D'Angelo Russell will spend the next 1-2 weeks on the sidelines with a mildly sprained right knee and a strained left calf.

He's going to re-evaluated in one week, but given the way the Lakers have handled injuries this season, it seems unlikely that Russell will be getting back to the court prior to the two-week mark. With Russell on the sidelines, Lou Williams and Brandon Ingram will see some more opportunity on the offensive end, and Jordan Clarkson could be looking at some starts. For what it's worth, Russell required the PRP injection in his left knee, so this new injury is technically to his good knee.
