Rudy Gay, who hit just 11-of-37 shots in his last game, and tweaked an ankle, hit 8-of-18 shots and four 3-pointers for 23 points, six rebounds, four assists, five steals and two blocks in Wednesday's easy win over the Cavaliers.

He didn't hit 50 percent of his shots tonight, and still hasn't done so in a single game this season. But owners would gladly take this line every night and it's possible he learned something from the ridiculous 37 shots he took on Monday. Hopefully the ankle problem isn't an issue when he wakes up in the morning.

Nerlens Noel posted his fourth career double-double in Sunday's road win vs. the Magic, scoring 13 points while grabbing 12 rebounds in 32 minutes.

Michael Carter-Williams and Noel got into a heated verbal altercation during the game, but it wasn't anything serious and seemed to light a fire under Noel, who also had an assist, steal and block in the rare victory. He's averaging 8.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2.4 steals and 1.8 blocks over the Sixers' past five games, quickly reminding owners why they tolerated his lousy start to the season.

Eric Bledsoe led the Suns to a win over the Wizards on Sunday, finishing with 17 points, nine boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

He had 25 points with 10 rebounds on Saturday, so hopefully he can keep rebounding and scoring at a high rate. Bledsoe probably won't see more than 30 minutes most nights as long as Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas are healthy, but Bledsoe should continue to be an elite asset moving forward.

Robert Covington left Sunday's game against the Magic with a knee issue, but has since returned.

There were only two minutes left in the game when he tweaked it, but it is a great sign that he was able to play through it. Covington has become a must-own player after his hot start for the 76ers this season, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Dec 21 - 8:18 PM

Joe Johnson (eye) left Sunday's game against the Pistons, but has since returned and is available to play.

He was poked in his left eye by Josh Smith in the third quarter of Sunday's game, and briefly headed back to the locker room with a trainer. However, he is back on the bench and he looks like he is just fine. We will let you know how he fares after the game.
Dec 21 - 7:34 PM

Greivis Vasquez took advantage of the increased opportunity with Landry Fields (concussion) sidelined on Sunday, and put up 21 points (three 3-pointers), five assists, and four rebounds in a Raptors' win.

Vasquez has been struggling lately coming off the bench, but got things going tonight against a terrible Knicks team. The Knicks often give up big lines to opposing guards, so that can't be discounted with tonight's line. Given how inconsistent Vasquez' has been this year, we'll need to see a couple more games like this before recommending the add in standard leagues.
Dec 21 - 7:33 PM

Kyrie Irving tied his career-high with 12 assists vs. the Grizzlies on Sunday, while adding 17 points on 8-of-13 shooting, one 3-pointer and three rebounds.

Irving committed only two turnovers in 37 minutes and improved efficiency has been a welcome boost for his fantasy value, as he's averaging career-best numbers in True Shooting (56.7 percent) and turnover rate (8.8 percent). His usage rate has predictably fallen off with LeBron James and Kevin Love in town, but that hasn't stopped Irving from producing at a top-15 level in 9-cat leagues.
Dec 21 - 7:14 PM

Jonas Valanciunas only managed to score 10 points on 2-of-6 shooting Sunday, to go with five rebounds, an assists, and zero blocks over 22 minutes of action.

Slow starts are nothing new for Valanciunas, and it's really only a matter of time until he starts to get things going. He averaged 16.8 points, 11.0 rebounds and 0.9 blocks during the month of April last year, so it would be wise to float out some buy-low offers before he starts rolling.
Dec 21 - 7:14 PM

Dion Waiters got hot during Sunday's win over the Grizzlies, finishing with 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

He never left the bench during the second half of Friday's game, but scored 13 of his points in the fourth quarter on Sunday. The Cavs have too many offensive weapons to expect this caliber of performance more than occasionally from Waiters, who hadn't even cracked top-200 fantasy value through Cleveland's first 25 games.
Dec 21 - 7:13 PM

Jon Leuer stepped into a starting role on Sunday, notching 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 30 minutes of action.

Zach Randolph was out with a swollen knee, which led to Leuer's temporary promotion, and Randolph remains questionable for Monday's game. Daily-league owners should keep a close eye on the Grizzlies' injury report, as Leuer could once again be a solid value against the Jazz on Monday.
Dec 21 - 7:09 PM

Kyle Lowry put up 22 points on 7-of-12 shooting during Sunday's win, adding nine assists, four rebounds, two 3-pointers, three steals, and four turnovers.

Lowry also shot a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe as his career-year continues. He's hitting career-highs in points (19.4) and assists (7.8) this season, and is the main reason the Raptors currently own a record of 21-6 despite not having DeMar DeRozan. Keep rolling him out there as he establishes himself as an elite point guard in the league.
Dec 21 - 7:05 PM

Carmelo Anthony played 37 minutes during Sunday's loss, scoring 28 points on 12-of-26 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, and two turnovers.

The minutes suggest that Melo's knee is healthy, but with the Knicks owning a record of 5-24, there's always going to be talk of him shutting things down. Carmelo remains an elite option while he's in uniform, but owners may want to seriously consider selling high.
