Anthony Davis set the bar even higher with the best night of his young career in the Pelicans' 96-85 win over the Lakers on Friday, scoring a career-high 32 points on 12-of-18 shooting (8-of-11 FTs) with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and a career-high tying six blocks.

Yes, Monty Williams has developed a reputation for not playing his best guys, but if he goes back to anything resembling last year's timeshare between Davis and Ryan Anderson it might leave a mark on his resume. And even if we want to assume Williams will be stubborn, the Pelicans have only injury prone Jason Smith and well-below average Greg Stiemsma to spell the power forwards with. Davis is now the youngest player ever to post a 30-10-5 line, and he's also the No. 1 player in fantasy in 9-cat formats.

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) has increased his workload and was able to run on a anti-gravity treadmill at 80 percent on Saturday.

He is scheduled to have an MRI next week in the hope that he will be cleared to run on his full weight soon. However, he is still not close to a return and Minnesota have no reason to rush him back as they are firmly out of the playoff race. Pekovic's eventual return could hurt the value of Gorgui Dieng, but Dieng should still be owned in all leagues for the rest of the way due to his upside and how injury-prone Pekovic is.

Kevin Martin (wrist) is making good progress, and is expected to be re-evaluated in two weeks.

He had surgery on Nov. 25 and the initial diagnosis was 6-8 weeks so it looks like he is on course to return in January as expected. Martin can be picked up for owners in need of 3-point shooting and scoring but expectations need to be tempered as Minnesota will likely ease him back slowly. We will pass along further updates as needed.

Jimmy Butler scored a game-high 33 points in a 107-100 win over the Pelicans on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals.

This is getting old. Over his last six games, Butler has averaged 26.3 points, 7.2 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.5 blocks and 1.3 triples on 51.5 percent from the field. He is doing all of this with Derrick Rose on the court and it's clear his coach trusts him. Butler is playing like an All-Star and he looks like a he's going to do it for a while.

Ricky Rubio (ankle) said that he felt 'good not great' after doing some 5-on-0 work at practice Friday.

He won't take contact in practice until he does feel a little better and also added that he has no return date in mind. We still think he will be able to return in January, but this report is a little disappointing. However, Rubio should be owned in all leagues and his owners will have to remain patient for the time being.

Anthony Davis played great in his hometown debut during a 107-100 loss to the Bulls on Saturday, scoring 29 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and six blocks in 41 minutes.

Obviously his little hand issue from Friday was not a factor. After a minor slump earlier this month, he's putting up huge numbers in his last four with averages of 27.5 points, 11.0 boards, 0.8 steals and 3.8 blocks on 54.2 percent from the field and 90.0 percent from the line. Yeah, he's good.
Dec 27 - 10:51 PM

Nerlens Noel (ankle) had to leave the game in the third quarter of Saturday's game but has since returned.

This is great news considering how cautious the 76ers are, and it appears that Noel has dodged a bullet here. We will pass along any further updates as soon as we know more. Stay tuned.
Dec 27 - 10:49 PM

Marc Gasol was outstanding yet again on Saturday during a 103-95 win over the Heat with 22 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

He just won't quit. Over his last four games, averaging 24.5 points, 10.3 boards, 4.3 assists and 1.3 blocks on 52.7 percent from the field and 86.4 percent from the line. He's putting up first-round fantasy value and only an injury can keep him down.
Dec 27 - 10:38 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 25 points with three rebounds, seven assists, four steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer on 11-of-17 from the field against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

This was a nine-category line with both attempts from the line going in and only one turnover. In other news, he looked to have knee-to-knee contact, so his fantasy owners will have to be on the lookout in the future. Wade was in some pain, but he didn't need to go to the locker room. The Heat have a four-game week on the horizon starting on Monday, so his fantasy owners should be equipped with plenty of ammo for his status for this week before making a decision.
Dec 27 - 10:14 PM

Kemba Walker's career-high 42 points were not enough against the Magic during a 102-94 loss on Saturday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, one block and five 3-pointers.

He scored 35 points in the second half, which is the most any Hornet has ever scored in a half in Charlotte's NBA history. Walker made 15-of-31 from the field overall and his ridiculous second half gave him a usage rate of 52.3 with an assist percentage of 66.7. He's heating up with 21.9 points per game on 43.8 percent from the field this month.
Dec 27 - 10:04 PM

Rodney Hood (ankle) left Saturday's game against the 76ers, but has since returned and is available to play.

After landed awkwardly under the rim, Hood quickly emerged from the locker room after getting his ankle re-taped and it looks like he is good to go. We will pass along any further updates as needed.
Dec 27 - 9:48 PM

Tony Parker (hamstring) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. Houston.

Coach Gregg Popovich hinted that Parker could be looking at extended stint on the sidelines, so owners need to have a backup plan ready. Cory Joseph will continue to carry the load for the Spurs at point guard, and should be owned in all leagues for the foreseeable future.
