Derrick Favors had a putback dunk with 2.1 seconds left to give the Jazz a 105-103 victory over the Lakers on Friday, finishing with 18 points, 14 boards, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes.

He's been a little under the radar with December averages of just 14.0 points, 8.2 boards, 1.5 blocks and 0.7 steals on a team that won't be getting much national attention. However, Favors has been fantastic with shooting percentages of 55.5 from the field and 81.5 from the charity stripe, so he's really rounding into form as an all-purpose big man for fantasy owners. He's put up third round value this month and has room to grow. The video of the dunk is attached in the link below.

DeMarre Carroll went to the locker room in the third quarter on Wednesday.

He was falling to the ground and Pascal Siakam's knee caught him as he was falling. Carroll was down for about two minutes and he needed some help off the court, so he may be dealing with a concussion. If he's out, Terrence Ross and Norman Powell would benefit. Ross is the better speculative add because he's played better late;y.

Anthony Davis (left hand) is questionable to return against the Magic on Wednesday.

He was questionable to return due to a left thumb injury, so this could be related -- also a right hip. Davis had a trainer go to the locker room walk back there with him, so maybe he's getting an X-ray. We'll add updates as we receive them. Terrence Jones should be owned regardless.

Dwight Howard is back in the starting lineup to face the Pistons on Wednesday and Tim Hardaway Jr. will move to the bench.

He should see his normal playing time, assuming he can avoid foul trouble against Andre Drummond. Even though Hardaway Jr. is coming off the bench, he's still a hold.

Ben Simmons (foot) "could make his much-anticipated NBA debut shortly after the All-Star break," according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

The report adds the No. 1 pick has a chance to make his NBA debut "near March," assuming he doesn't have a setback. He went through 5-on-5 for the first time last week and continues to do some work pre-game, including on the road. He'll likely have a minutes limit upon his return, so it may be a while before he's contributing reliable production. Simmons is a questionable stash in standard leagues, especially if you need to make up ground in the standings.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He returned to action on Monday, but the Celtics will hold him out. Presumably, this is more of a precaution than anything with the Celtics not on a back-to-back set. With him out, Marcus Smart figures to get the start while Terry Rozier, Gerald Green and Jaylen Brown could play more. Bradley was off to a fantastic start this season, but it may take him some time to get right with this nagging injury.

DeMar DeRozan is confirmed in the starting lineup against the 76ers on Wednesday.

The Raptors may want to get a win against their divisional foes. DeRozan gets a good matchup tonight, so keep him rolling in your season-long leagues.

Kyle O'Quinn will move into the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, with Joakim Noah (ankle) unavailable.

O'Quinn is about as hit-or-miss as they come, but with Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles), Lance Thomas (orbital fracture) and Noah all on the sidelines Wednesday night, he's sure looking at a good amount of opportunity. He's someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play.

DeMar DeRozan is listed as the starter for Wednesday against the 76ers.

The Raptors usually tweet out lineup changes on their officially Twitter account, but this isn't the source here. For now, DeRozan has a good chance to play on the second half of a back-to-back set. We'll see if there is another update on DeMar from the team before tip.

Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) will play Wednesday vs. the Magic, as expected.

Davis looked fine while going through his pregame routine, and there's been no discussion of a minutes restriction, so his owners can feel free to fire him up. Alvin Gentry may have had the quote of the year during his pregame interview, stating, "AD will play hurt. He's played hurt since the day he got here." Yup.
Jan 18 - 6:40 PM

Evan Fournier (heel, foot) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He tried to return from a heel injury last week and apparently it's caused additional problems to his foot due to compensation. Fournier's owners obviously have to stash him. Jodie Meeks should play minutes around 30 while Elfrid Payton has also been terrific without Fournier lately. Meeks is worth a look in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 6:35 PM

Klay Thompson (personal) flew to Portland to visit his ill grandfather today and intends to return to Bay Area to play against the Thunder on Wednesday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Thompson has told general manager Bob Myers he could fly back in time for the game tonight, so Thompson looks like he's closer to probable for this game. If he isn't back in time, we'll see more Pat McCaw Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala could play more.
