LeBron James had 24 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a 3-pointer, and Ray Allen hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with just under a minute left as the Heat used a late 10-0 run to beat the Pacers 97-94.

The Heat were down as much as 15 points, and Chris Bosh also hit a big 3-pointer to help the Heat make the furious comeback. Paul George battled well with LeBron, finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers, but missed an awkward floater late, as well as a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer. He felt like he was fouled by LeBron on the play, and it's hard to argue with him after seeing replays. The season series is now tied at 1-1 and the two teams don't meet again until March, and then again in April. As for LeBron's ankle injury, it clearly wasn't a problem tonight and we expect to see him again on Friday against the Kings, assuming he feels OK when he wakes up on Thursday.

The Bulls won a stunning overtime game in Golden State on Tuesday, paced by Pau Gasol's 18 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists and four blocks.

Gasol made 7-of-12 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws and he continues to shatter preseason expectations. The 34-year-old veteran has missed only three games this season (in November) despite averaging 34.9 minutes per game, and fantasy owners have to be thrilled with his production under Tom Thibodeau's thumb.

John Wall wasn't bothered by his sore Achilles on Tuesday, as he piled up 21 points on 8-of-12 FGs, nine rebounds, 13 assists in a comeback win vs. the Lakers.

He shot an unusually awful 5-of-12 at the FT line with four turnovers, but added three steals and it's all gravy for owners who weren't even sure if he'd suit up tonight. Wall has been perfectly durable over the past two seasons and his owners shouldn't fret about his minor ailment -- start him with confidence vs. the Suns on Wednesday.

Martell Webster exited Tuesday's game with a right knee injury after colliding with Jeremy Lin.

He tried to walk off the injury and stay in the game but Washington's training staff thought better, pulling him off the court and into the locker room. Webster does not have a history of knee injuries and may have suffered nothing more severe than a stinger, but we'll update his status once more details surface.

Kyrie Irving matched his season-high of 38 points in a win over the Pistons on Tuesday, adding six assists, three boards, three steals, one block and six 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

The six 3-pointers were also a season-high, and his owners have got to be thrilled with this line. Irving has been an elite fantasy asset this season, and one of the main reasons why is because he has only missed a total of three games. If he continues to stay healthy, there is no reason to think that his numbers won't continue to improve as the Cavs try to surge up the standings in the Eastern Conference.

The Bucks intend to sign forward Kenyon Martin to a rest-of-season deal in the coming days.

Martin's 10-day contract is about to expire, but the Bucks have an obvious need for frontcourt depth due to the prolonged absence of Larry Sanders. However, Martin's role has been very limited so there is no reason to consider adding him in almost any league. We will provide further details as needed.

Kevin Love scored just seven points on 3-of-11 shooting in a win over the Pistons on Tuesday, adding eight boards, four assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He reportedly experienced some dizzy spells during Sunday's game against the Thunder, so there is a strong chance that he wasn't at 100 percent tonight. We will update his status if any new developments occur, but it doesn't appear that he will miss any time. This was his seventh game of the season in which he failed to score in double digits, so his owners can only hope that Love starts to turn things around soon.

Kevin Durant (toe) remains day-to-day, but his status for Wednesday's game against the Knicks is still up in the air.

The injury was never thought to be serious, but the Thunder have every right to be cautious with their franchise player after he missed the beginning of the season with a fracture in his foot. We should know more about his status after shootaround Wednesday morning, so owners will have to check back then for updates. If Durant can't go Perry Jones will likely draw another start, but he isn't a reliable option in most leagues.
Jan 27 - 10:43 PM

Andrew Bogut was scratched from the starting lineup at the last minute on Tuesday due to flu-like symptoms, shifting Marreese Speights into the Warriors' starting lineup.

Bogut was actually announced with the starters so this is terrible news for any owners who had him active in lineups. We will go ahead and consider Bogut questionable for Friday's game against Utah, but he should have plenty of time to recover for that one.

LeBron James tweaked his wrist on Tuesday vs. the Pistons, but remained in the game to the tune of 32 points, seven assists, six boards and one steal in 36 minutes to lead the Cavaliers to their seventh straight win.

He landed on his wrist awkwardly and immediately grasped at it in pain, but he said after the game that it was simply a "stinger" so he shouldn't be in danger of missing any time. The Cavaliers are much more aggressive when James is on the floor and his return from knee and back soreness earlier this month has helped them pick up some serious steam in the Eastern Conference. Expect him to keep up his torrid pace on Wednesday vs. Portland.
Jan 27 - 10:35 PM

Hassan Whiteside started Tuesday's game with Chris Anderson (elbow) unavailable, scoring 16 points with 16 rebounds, one assist, one steal and zero blocks in a season-high 36 minutes.

He received some amusing 'MVP' chants from the adoring home crowd and continues to make his mark on the NBA after years of obscurity, making Whiteside one of the best stories in the league this season. Miami is firmly committed to his season-long development and fantasy owners have to be thrilled with his playing time tonight -- unlike some other young centers like Jusuf Nurkic, Whiteside could temper his fouls enough to hold down heavy minutes.
Jan 27 - 10:27 PM

D.J. Augustin had another solid game as the starting point guard for Detroit on Tuesday, scoring 19 points with nine assists, four boards, two steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He is coming off a career-high 35-point game on Sunday, so it looks like it's safe to assume that he will be a must-own player for the rest of the season. Even if the Pistons bring in a third point guard, Augustin will likely have no serious competition for the starting job and should maintain value as the season progresses. Congrats are in order if you were able to pluck him off the waiver wire.
