Jordan Hill started at power forward on Tuesday and made the most of it, torching the Pelicans for a career-high 21 points, 11 rebounds, two steals and a block on 7-of-12 shooting in 26 minutes for the Lakers.

He also hit 7-of-8 free throws and even though he plays for Mike D'Antoni, could stick in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future. If you need a big man and have someone to drop, go ahead and make the move. We like him better than Zaza Pachulia right now, but John Henson is probably a guy you'll want to hold onto over Hill.

JaKarr Sampson will start at shooting guard against the Pistons on Wednesday.

It will be his sixth start at guard this season. In his previous five, Sampson averaged 6.2 points, 1.6 boards, 0.1 steals, 0.1 blocks and 0.4 triples. If those stats are desirable to you, give him a look.

John Wall is listed as questionable to face the Suns, but a team official said he thinks Wall will play.

He wasn't on the injury report for the pre-game notes, but the Wizards are going to entertain the idea of resting him again. He was supposed to have a minutes limit on Tuesday, but it didn't happen. Wall has an Achilles issue, a sore ankle, and migraines, so it's possible he sits. Owners in season-long leagues should start Wall tonight, but he's not a great DFS option.

Michael Carter-Williams (illness) will start Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons

He does feel better [but] he's not 100 percent," said coach Brett Brown. MCW's return sends Larry Drew II back to the bench and he's safe to activate in all lineups even though he's still under the weather, as he's taken on a massive workload with Tony Wroten out of the picture.

George Hill (leg) missed practice on Wednesday.

"To not be able to start the season with these guys and go through all these battles with them and then coming back for a couple games and it's [another injury], that [is bad]," Hill said. Not good. He just can't stay healthy this season and is almost a lock to miss games at some point. We should consider him questionable to play against the Knicks on Thursday.

Paul Pierce (toe) will play against the Suns on Wednesday.

He was questionable for the late game and we get an early report tonight, which is a nice change from Tuesday. Pierce rested on Tuesday and he should be right back to around 28-30 minutes tonight. With John Wall also not on the injury report, basically all of the wings become slightly less attractive, especially Otto Porter and Rasual Butler.
Jan 28 - 4:51 PM

Matt Barnes (abdomen) said he will play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

Back on Sunday, Barnes had a wrap around his waist during warmups. This wasn't reported by the team until he aggravated it on Monday. He should get minutes as long as he's able to play, so give him a look in standard leagues. Plus, this should be an up-tempo game.

Tayshaun Prince said he would rather play with a contender than with the Celtics, according to the Boston Herald.

"Obviously I want to be in a winning situation," Prince said. "Everybody wants to be in a winning situation, make no mistake about it, especially toward the end of your career." He has been playing well with his new team and even played 30 minutes on Monday. Once Prince departs, it should open up some minutes for Marcus Smart, Evan Turner and Jae Crowder.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said he will not have a "hard-and-fast rule" but he "may still sit [a player who picks up a technical foul] for the end of the game."

"We're just going to try to do a better job as teammates to corral each other when they start to argue," Hornacek said. "The guys [said] they would do that." The Suns lead the NBA in technical fouls and Markieff Morris was benched for almost the entire second half for his 10th technical of the season on Sunday. Goran Dragic was also benched last week for a tech. Fantasy owners should know there is some risk in starting the Morrii Twins or anyone else.
Jan 28 - 2:57 PM

Nick Young (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday night.

He has a moderate ankle sprain and missed Tuesday's game against the Wizards. The Lakers seem to be committed to their young guys, so don't expect Young to play at less than 100 percent. Wayne Ellington and Jordan Clarkson are both worth a look.
Jan 28 - 2:47 PM

Jose Calderon (knee) is questionable to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

He is a little closer to doubtful to play after a knee injury from the weekend. Calderon has really struggled on both ends and the team might not want to put him at the mercy of Russell Westbrook. Fantasy owners can plan on him sitting while Langston Galloway figures to start again.
Jan 28 - 2:35 PM

Kevin Martin (wrist) is expected to make his return to the lineup against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He's not a complete lock because the team will want to see how he performs in pre-game workouts, and he's technically questionable to play. Most signs do point to him playing despite an earlier report today. Martin has been doing a lot of non-contact work and missed some practice over the weekend. He's someone worth grabbing in standard leagues. Meanwhile, it should be interesting to see what happens with the other starters. Andrew Wiggins may slide to the small forward spot, which would bump Gorgui Dieng or Thaddeus Young from the starting unit.
