Suns waive C Hamed Haddadi.

The move will allow the Suns to pay him $200K instead of guaranteeing a $1.4 million salary for next season. The Suns drafted center Alex Len out of Maryland and Haddadi wouldn't have been very useful behind Marcin Gortat -- another player that could be on his way out. Haddadi might have a tough time cracking any NBA rotation.

Nemanja Bjelica matched his season-high with 18 points vs. the Clippers on Monday, hitting 6-of-13 shots and 3-of-4 free throws.

He made his second straight start for the injured Jimmy Butler (knee), but unlike last game, he closed over Marcus George-Hunt. Bjelica grabbed nine rebounds with four assists, one steal and three triples in 34 minutes, and he's now averaging 13.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 2.0 triples in his last two games. If Butler continues to miss time, Bjelica will be a solid streaming option on Wednesday vs. the Blazers and Thursday vs. the Warriors.

Jeff Teague scored a season-high 30 points in Monday's win over the Clippers, hitting 7-of-14 shots and 16-of-17 free throws.

The 16 free throws were three more than his previous career-high, but Teague wasn't done there, as he racked up six assists with three rebounds and a turnover in 34 minutes. He was in a funk coming into tonight's game with averages of 11.0 points, 6.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.7 triples on 36.8% shooting in his previous six games, and while he obviously benefitted from Jimmy Butler's (knee) absence, hopefully this a sign of things to come.

Andrew Wiggins posted a season-high in points for the second time in a row in Monday's 126-118 win over the Clippers, dropping 40 points in 41 minutes.

Wiggins hit 16-of-28 shots and 5-of-8 free throws, adding six rebounds, one assist, one block and three triples. He had 29 points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes in his last game, and he's been the putting the Wolves on his back with Jimmy Butler missing the last two games with right knee soreness. This was the sixth game of his career with 40+ points and he'll be a monster play once again if Butler can't go vs. the Blazers on Wednesday or the Warriors on Thursday.
Jan 23 - 1:10 AM

Jusuf Nurkic scored 19 points (7-of-13 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks in a 104-101 loss to the Nuggets on Monday.

This was his first game in Denver since he was traded, and it's no secret that he had an issue with coach Mike Malone when he was there -- when asked about their relationship at the morning shootaround, Nurkic plainly said they didn't have one. "He plays better when he has an edge," Damian Lillard said of Nurkic. "For Nurk, when he’s locked in, he’s focused, when he’s paying attention to the small things, too, instead of the things that jump out, that’s when you see the best version of him." He averaged 20.0 points and 7.0 rebounds on 57.5 percent shooting in three previous meetings, so it's easy to see why he was such a popular DFS target tonight.

Jamal Murray busted out for a career-high 38 points with five rebounds, six assists, one turnover and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Blazers during a 104-101 win on Monday.

It was a virtuoso performance from one of the league's best point guards. Murray hit mid-range jumpers and six shots in the paint to get him to his best scoring game ever. Murray has been on a serious roll for two months, so his patient owners are laughing to the bank.

Kelly Oubre played 32 minutes on Monday but hit just 2-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, five rebounds, one assist and two steals.

Otto Porter went down with a hip injury tonight and didn't return. Meanwhile, Oubre had scored at least 10 points in his previous seven games and should get a boost if Porter's going to miss time. Even with a few duds thrown in, Porter came into this one averaging 14 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.2 3-pointers on 55 percent shooting in January. He could be a sneaky pickup if Porter's going to miss time with his injury, assuming he's not already owned in your league.

DeMarcus Cousins went off for 44 points, 24 rebounds, 10 assists, four steals, a block and five 3-pointers on 13-of-29 shooting in 52 minutes of Monday's 132-128 overtime win against the Bulls.

Boogie Nights! Cousins became the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1968 to post a 40-20-10 game and he even managed to avoid fouling out, despite all the minutes. The points and boards were both season highs and this was his second triple-double of the season, as he had 29 points, 12 boards and 10 assists back on Oct. 28. Cousins came in as the No. 10 fantasy player in nine-cat leagues and he's probably going to jump a few spots after this historic performance.
Jan 22 - 11:34 PM

Jerian Grant hit 6-of-7 shots, 2-of-2 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws on his way to 22 points, five rebounds, a career-high 13 assists, two steals, a block and six turnovers in 47 minutes of Monday's 132-128 overtime loss to the Pelicans.

Kris Dunn is out with a concussion and Grant went nuts tonight. Believe it or not, the 22 points were not a season high, but it was close. Dunn's very iffy for the rest of the week and after tonight, Grant can be deployed in DFS or even season-long leagues for as long as Dunn is out. Just keep in mind that he'd really been struggling to score, putting up no more than eight points in all but one of his January games.
Jan 22 - 11:26 PM

Lauri Markkanen hit 5-of-12 shots for 14 points, a career-high 17 rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in 40 minutes of Monday's OT loss to the Pelicans.

Markkanen missed all four of his 3-pointers but still had a really nice night. Bobby Portis played just 15 minutes and had eight points and seven rebounds, and if Nikola Mirotic is traded, Portis is still going to have to compete with Markkanen for playing time. Markkanen has been especially hot lately, checking in as the No. 15 fantasy player over his previous five games.
Jan 22 - 11:16 PM

Malcolm Brogdon hit 11-of-14 shots, 3-of-4 3-pointers and 7-of-8 free throws for a career-high 32 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block in 35 minutes of Monday's win over the Suns.

Wow. He was on fire tonight and has been playing extremely well in January after a slow start to the season. He missed Saturday's game for personal reasons, but was back in full force and effect tonight. Jason Kidd is out for the Bucks and Brogdon had the best game of his career in his first game without him. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from Brogdon the rest of the way, although it won't be easy for him to match it once Giannis Antetokounmpo is back from his knee injury.
Jan 22 - 11:03 PM

Timothe Luwawu scored a season-high 20 points in Monday's 105-101 loss to the Grizzlies, hitting 6-of-9 shots and 2-of-2 free throws.

TLC played 30 minutes for the second game in a row, hitting six triples with two assists and a block. He had 16 points in his last outing with three more triples, as the second-year wing continues to make the most of his opportunity with J.J. Redick (leg) and Jerryd Bayless (wrist) out. The 76ers play three more times this week and have four games the following week, so TLC is worth a look as a short-term pickup.
