LaMarcus Aldridge refuted rumors that he has demanded a trade from the Blazers.

A previous report stated that Aldridge would want to be traded to the Bulls or Mavericks if the Blazers don't significantly upgrade their roster, and he cleared up some misunderstandings on Saturday. "I haven't demanded a trade or cleared a way for my departure," Aldridge said. "It's not true. That's all I am saying right now." He also expressed "optimism" about Portland's future in an email sent to the Oregonian, and we don't expect him to openly lobby for a trade until the Blazers make their moves in free agency.

Jared Sullinger tied his season high on Sunday with 21 points, making 10-of-13 shots with six rebounds, three steals and one assist in just 23 minutes of action.

Sullinger hadn't scored more than 18 points since Nov. 6, as his shot has abandoned him for long stretches this season -- he's shooting just 41.9 percent overall. This mini-eruption came vs. a Kings team that ranks 22nd in defensive efficiency and first in pace, at 102.1 possessions per game, so it was an ideal matchup for Sullinger. Consistent playing time is the biggest issue for his fantasy value, and that's unlikely to change after one efficient performance.

Tyler Zeller scored a season-high 17 points vs. Sacramento on Sunday, sinking 6-of-8 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with seven rebounds, two blocks and one assist.

Zeller did his damage in just 22 minutes and he's demanding a share of frontcourt minutes -- over his past four games he's averaging 13.8 points on 68.6 percent shooting, to go along with 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 blocks. He's playing just 20.8 minutes during that span, however, and most owners should leave him on the wire.

Rajon Rondo (turf toe) had 14 points, 15 assists, six steals, five rebounds and one 3-pointer vs. his former team on Sunday, committing four turnovers in a tough loss at Boston.

He shot 5-of-10 from the field with all five misses coming within three feet of the hoop. For what it's worth, Rondo defended embattled coach George Karl after Friday's loss, saying, "It has nothing to do with the coaches, it's about us. We don't sacrifice enough to do what it takes to win consecutive games." The best news for his fantasy owners is that his turf toe has yet to cause him any DNPs.

Kristaps Porzingis notched his second straight double-double on Sunday with 21 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks, but it wasn't enough to avoid the Knicks' fifth straight loss.

KP shot 10-of-23 from the field with one make from downtown -- he wasn't very effective from mid-range with the exception of the right wing, where he shot 4-of-4. KP said before the game that the struggling Knicks "need a guy like 'Melo who you can give the ball and he will score, he will get to the line and he will make plays for others." If Anthony's knee injury eventually forces a shutdown, Porzingis may need to be that guy in the final stages of the Knicks' season.

Nikola Vucevic scored 22 points on 11-of-19 shooting (including a game-winning, turnaround jumper) on Sunday, to go with nine boards, two assists, two steals and an unfortunate six turnovers in 35 minutes.

Vucevic's value has dipped to fifth-round status over the past month, largely due to the fact that he's been shooting just 43.5 percent from the field, so tonight's 57.8 percent shooting performance was a welcome sight for his owners. As a career 51.0 percent shooter, Vuc should get the shooting sorted out soon enough, so now would be a good time to float out some buy-low offers. The video of the buzzer-beating shot can be viewed in the video below.
Feb 7 - 4:30 PM

Joffrey Lauvergne double-doubled in 29 minutes on Sunday, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds (four offensive), one assist, one block and three turnovers.

Lauvergne earned most of his minutes as a backup center, even playing ahead of Nikola Jokic down the stretch, though he also played some PF alongside Jusuf Nurkic due to the absence of Darrell Arthur (quad). Lauvergne has fallen out of the rotation for long stretches, and he's exceeded 30 minutes once all season, so he's only worth a glance in very deep leagues.
Feb 7 - 4:27 PM

Kent Bazemore went off for 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting Sunday, to go with eight boards, one assist, three 3-pointers, two steals and four turnovers through 33 minutes of action.

Bazemore had been struggling over the past month, but he's been trending up over the past four games, owning averages of 13.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.8 three-pointers and 2.5 turnovers per game, which has been good enough for top-80 value in standard leagues.
Feb 7 - 4:01 PM

Jeff Teague hit 10-of-17 shots for 24 points on Sunday, to go with five assists, three 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and an unfortunate five turnovers through 35 minutes of action.

Teague did briefly exit the game after getting hit in the left side, but he played through it and it didn't look like an injury that would force him to miss any time. Jeff has been playing much better over the past two weeks, putting in averages of 17.3 points, 5.4 assists, 1.6 three-pointers, 1.9 steals and 3.0 turnovers per game on 53.8 percent shooting, which has been good enough for second-round value in standard leagues. Dennis Schroder no longer seems to be a threat to Teague's minutes.
Feb 7 - 3:28 PM

Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are doubtful to play Monday vs. the Pelicans.

Neither guy is a major part of the rotation, and both can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng will continue to earn minutes in the high-30s as Minnesota's starting power forward with both Garnett and Big Pek out.
Feb 7 - 3:12 PM

Kevin Martin (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Martin has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but perhaps the Timberwolves will look to showcase him against a team that could really use a two-guard. If he plays, he'll cut into Zach LaVine's minutes.
Feb 7 - 3:09 PM

Allen Crabbe (illness) is questionable to play Monday vs. Memphis.

Crabbe is dealing with a stomach bug, and if he can't give it a go on Monday, it'll be Gerald Henderson and Moe Harkless picking up some extended run. Check back for another update on Crabbe following Monday morning's shootaround.
