Antawn Jamison and the Clippers agreed to a one-year deal at the veteran's minimum on Monday.

The move was expected to happen and there was "renewed interest" from the Clippers on Sunday night. Jamison will add some depth at power forward for the Clippers, which is a weakness behind Blake Griffin. BG played 32.5 minutes per game in the 2012-13 regular season, so Jamison could flirt with his 21.5 minutes per game from last year. He's still not worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues and will compete with Byron Mullens for playing time, though.

Blake Griffin made a career-high three 3-pointers vs. Charlotte on Sunday to finish with 43 points (15-of-26 FGs, 10-of-16 FTs), 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Blake's 43 points were the most scored by a Clippers player this season. The Hornets are giving up a league-high 11.3 triples per game and Blake took full advantage of their perimeter defense. He also did plenty of work in the paint, including one soaring putback dunk, and concerns about his explosion after knee surgery are getting quieter on a nightly basis. The star PF even logged 42 minutes with just one turnover tonight, rounding out a stellar performance.

DeAndre Jordan piled up 20 points and 19 rebounds during an overtime win on Sunday, making 9-of-10 shots with three steals, two blocks and one assist.

DJ played 43 minutes and he was a tolerable 2-of-4 at the FT line, even though Charlotte committed a few intentional fouls late in the game. He went through a fallow period without Chris Paul prior to the All-Star break, but with CP back Jordan's owners can expect his typically dominant production.

Nicolas Batum set a new season high with eight 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 31 points, eight rebounds, four assists and one block in 43 minutes.

The Clippers have held opponents to 9.0 threes per game this season, sixth-fewest in the league, which makes Batum's eruption surprising. The fact that all eight of his threes came in the second half and overtime makes it surreal, as he helped the Hornets stay in this game until the bitter end of OT. The veteran has consistently flirted with top-40 value in roto leagues this season.
Feb 27 - 12:42 AM

Kemba Walker carried the Hornets on Sunday with 34 points, six 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in a tough road loss vs. the Clippers.

Kemba has never beaten the Clippers in his career, now sporting an unenviable 0-10 record. He forced overtime with a clutch 3-pointer, followed by a pair of free throws, to quickly erase a five-point deficit with under 30 seconds left. His undermanned team didn't have enough in the bonus frame, however, and the struggling Hornets are now 2.5 games out of the No. 8 seed.
Feb 27 - 12:41 AM

Russell Westbrook survived an injury scare to finish Sunday's win vs. the Pelicans with 41 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and nine turnovers, making 14-of-29 FGs and 11-of-12 FTs in 37 minutes.

Westbrook limped off the court after falling on a drive to the basket in the second quarter, but he started the third and didn't show any obvious discomfort. He scored 21 points in the fourth quarter tonight and willed OKC to another win, putting them within 3.5 games of the No. 4 seed. He's averaging a triple-double this season, so tonight's line doesn't seem as outrageous as it would for any other human.
Feb 26 - 9:54 PM

Anthony Davis went off for 38 points in a losing effort on Sunday, making 15-of-28 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Davis dropped 24 points in the first quarter alone, setting a new franchise record for points in a quarter. He and DeMarcus Cousins combined for a whopping 69 points tonight, but their teammates added just 41 points on 35.1 percent shooting. They're figuring things out on the fly, but so far it doesn't look like AD will take a big hit statistically with Cousins alongside him.
Feb 26 - 9:51 PM

DeMarcus Cousins picked up his 18th technical foul of the season on Sunday, meaning he'll be suspended one game if the tech isn't rescinded.

Cousins finished the game with 31 points and 10 rebounds, making 8-of-15 FGs and 15-of-15 FTs before fouling out, but those numbers are overshadowed by the possibility of a suspension. His combustibility could haunt owners if he gets more techs during the fantasy playoffs. The trade deadline has passed in most leagues, so his owners can only hope that he keeps his cool down the stretch.
Feb 26 - 9:50 PM

DeMar DeRozan powered the Raptors to a 112-106 home win on Sunday, scoring 33 points on 9-of-16 field goals and 15-of-16 free throws, with six boards and two assists.

DeRozan had made 27 straight free throws before missing his final attempt tonight, the type of high-volume efficiency that makes it easier to swallow his lack of 3-pointers. He chipped in two steals and one block in 36 minutes, and his owners have to be hoping that Kyle Lowry (wrist) takes his time returning.
Feb 26 - 9:04 PM

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) is probable for Monday's game vs. the 76ers.

Steve Kerr said that KD's hand has improved enough that he's expected to play. The early update is terrific news for owners in weekly leagues, who can safely keep him locked into their lineups. Patrick McCaw will head back to the bench.
Feb 26 - 8:26 PM

John Wall had a mixed game on Sunday, scoring 23 points with 11 assists, three rebounds and four steals, but he also committed nine turnovers.

Wall has at least five first-quarter assists in six consecutive games, and he did his best to carry his team to a win tonight, but their offense wasn't up to snuff at 42.5 percent shooting. His turnovers didn't help matters tonight, but all credit is due to Utah's suffocating team defense. Wall's shot has been off lately, so it was also nice to see him knock down 9-of-18 shots with a pair of 3-pointers tonight.
Feb 26 - 7:56 PM

Rudy Gobert dominated Sunday's game with a game-high 20 rebounds to go along with 15 points (2-of-5 FGs, 11-of-14 FTs), three assists, one steal and four blocks.

Gobert and his teammates turned up the defensive pressure after halftime and they finished with 11 blocks as a team. Gobert is returning steady third-round value over the past month, checking all the boxes his owners expected on draft day. He's still only 24 years old, and the best is yet to come.
