Derrick Williams didn't return to Sunday's game after being hit in the mouth, leaving his status for Monday's game uncertain.

Williams started at SF in place of Rudy Gay (Achilles) and finished with 12 points, eight rebounds, two steals and one block in 32 minutes. The injury likely required stitches but it didn't seem major, and he'd be worth a spot-start if Gay doesn't travel with the team for Monday's game. Owners need to be on the lookout for medical updates.

The Charlotte Hornets and the Brooklyn Nets have started trade conversations involving Joe Johnson and Lance Stephenson.

Joey Dorsey will draw the start against the Lakers on Sunday in place of Dwight Howard (ankle).

Dorsey's game doesn't translate to fantasy very well, so he should only be considered in ridiculously deep leagues for owners in need of short-term value. The real beneficiaries in Howard's absence will be Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith.

Robbie Hummel left Sunday's game against the Hawks with a hand injury and did not return, finishing with nine points, four boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He lost his starting spot on Sunday with Minnesota opting to pair Nikola Pekovic and Gorgui Dieng together in the frontcourt, so his value was already trending down prior to the injury. We will consider him day-to-day until we get an update on his status, and we would expect Chase Budinger to pick up a few extra minutes off the bench if Hummel has to miss any additional time.

Dwight Howard (ankle) will not play against the Lakers on Sunday.

Coach Kevin McHale wasn't too hopeful that Howard would play tonight, and it looks like there is a legitimate chance that he misses additional time. We will consider Howard day-to-day for now, and we will update his status when we know more. The Rockets have yet to name a replacement in the starting lineup, but Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith will likely be the primary beneficiaries.

Tyson Chandler left Sunday's game against the Pelicans with a knee injury, but has since returned to action.

He collided with Anthony Davis during the third quarter and immediately gripped his knee in pain. Chandler couldn't put any weight on his leg and had to carried off the floor by his teammates, so it's surprising to see him back on the floor. X-rays were negative on his knee, so it looks like he dodged a bullet. We will let you know how his knee holds up after the game.

LeBron James scored 34 points to lead five Cavaliers in double-digits on Sunday, adding two 3-pointers, seven rebounds and five assists in Cleveland's sixth straight victory.

The re-tooled Cavs are figuring out how to win as a team, which is an unwelcome development for the rest of the Eastern Conference. James shot 11-of-25 from the field and 10-of-13 at the FT line, and rounded out Sunday's gem with a steal and two blocks.

Russell Westbrook fell one rebound shy of a triple-double vs. Cleveland on Sunday, scoring 22 points with nine boards, 11 assists, two steals and one block.

He shot 7-of-26 overall but made three 3-pointers and committed only two turnovers in OKC's tough road loss. Westbrook is one of 11 players with a triple-double this season, with Rajon Rondo leading the league with three of them in 38 games. Despite the near-miss for Westbrook his owners should only have one complaint -- his heavily-weighted 36.8 percent shooting over the past month.

Pau Gasol had yet another fantastic game on Sunday, scoring 13 points to go with 17 rebounds, three assists, four blocks, and two turnovers, but it wasn't enough as the Bulls fell to the heat.

Gasol continues to put up glorious fantasy lines, and he was rightfully voted in as the starting center for the Eastern Conference All-Star Team. He looks completely revitalized in Chicago, and his down-year in LA last season is now a distant memory. Keep rolling him out there, and pat yourself on the back if you drafted him late.

An MRI confirmed a sprained right ankle for Kelly Olynyk, and head coach Brad Stevens expects him to be sidelined for at least "a couple weeks."

Olynyk has a few torn ligaments which is typical of for a bad ankle sprain. With Olynyk sidelined, Tyler Zeller will get all the run he can handle with Brandon Bass also being in line for some extended minutes. While Zeller offers the most upside, both Zeller and Bass should be able to carve out some standard league value for as long as Olynyk is out.
Jan 25 - 6:39 PM

Joakim Noah was benched for the entire fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Heat, finishing the game with four points, five rebounds, two assists, and two blocks.

Head coach Tom Thibodeau said he liked the group that started the fourth quarter, and that is the reason why Joakim did not re-enter the game. Thibodeau maintained that Joakim is healthy, and he just wanted to watch his minutes, but with the result being an L in the win-loss column, this will not likely be a trend that continues. Look for Noah to bounce-back during Tuesday's game vs. Golden State.
Jan 25 - 6:35 PM

Ty Lawson will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Wizards.

Lawson was unavailable for Friday's game after being arrested for his second DUI early Friday morning. However, he'll be back in the lineup today, and he's obviously a must-start option every time he's in uniform. Jameer Nelson and Randy Foye's value will take a hit with Lawson back in the rotation.
