David Lee will not play on Friday against the Jazz.

Lee has been dealing with a shoulder injury and it's going to be interesting to see if Harrison Barnes can get off at the power forward position, and Draymond Green will also get some extra minutes. The Warriors were better in the playoffs last season without Lee, and a solid outing by the lot of them will reignite the anti-Lee discussion among the locals and elsewhere.

Tony Parker's left ankle locked up prior to Thursday's win over the Nuggets but he will travel with the team for Saturday's game at Cleveland.

Rookie Dejounte Murray started in Parker's place tonight and went off for a career-high 24 points on 7-of-11 shooting and added two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. It sounds like there's a good chance Parker will be back on Saturday, which will obviously hurt Murray's chances for another big game.

Otto Porter matched his career-high six 3-pointers against the Knicks on Thursday, scoring 23 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

It didn't take long for him to match his career high from Wednesday, and he's the first Wizards player ever to make six treys in back-to-back games. Porter's incredible shooting lately has moved him up to the No. 2 player in 3-point percentage this season, trailing Joe Ingles by just 0.2 percent. Porter has arguably been the most efficient player lately, posting an otherworldly 70.0 true shooting percentage over his last 14. He now has top-15 value in standard leagues.

Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points against the Wizards on Thursday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He scored 25 points in the second quarter to set a Knicks franchise record for most points in a quarter. Anthony played more power forward in this game and he's looked a lot more comfortable in that role. Plus, the Knicks are more likely to stagger him from Kristaps Porzingis going forward. While Melo is playing better, his troublesome knee and shoulder will be black marks on his fantasy value. Keep him rolling, of course.

LeBron James scored 21 points during a 118-103 win over the Suns on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, 15 assists, one steal, two blocks and four turnovers.

In the least surprising news of the day, LeBron was named to his 13th All-Star Team with his NBA-record 291 points in the event during his career. He is just one of five players to have that many All-Star nods and will likely pass Kobe Bryant's 18 in six years.

Raymond Felton, J.J. Redick, Austin Rivers, Luc Mbah a Moute and DeAndre Jordan will start against the Wolves on Thursday.

This was expected all along and the Clippers will have to manage without the NBA's top player in real plus minus. Felton is worth a look if you need a point guard for the next 6-8 weeks.
Jan 19 - 10:21 PM

Iman Shumpert scored a season-high 17 points against the Suns on Thursday, adding two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He had a really strong game, which has been a habit for him since he moved into the starting lineup. In those three, Shumpert averaged 16.0 points, 3.7 boards, 2.0 steals and 3.7 treys. We've seen Shump go on hot streaks before and he almost always fizzles out, but being this hot in a new role for him makes him an interesting pickup. If you're not dropping something with much demand, it's not a bad idea to give Shump a look to see if he can stay anywhere close to this hot.

Tyson Chandler scored a season-high 22 points against the Cavs during a 118-103 loss on Thursday, adding 16 rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes.

He kept the Suns in this game and grabbed at least 15 boards for the sixth straight active game to tie the record for the longest streak in Suns history. After the game, coach Earl Watson called Chandler "big time" and said his consistency has been important for the Suns. Fantasy owners should just keep rolling him out there and he remains a huge bargain in DFS right now.

Pau Gasol broke the fourth metacarpal in his left hand in pregame warmups on Thursday and will likely be out indefinitely.

It's hard to believe this happened before the game started, but also explains why he headed to the locker room with David Lee starting in his place. If he's going to miss extended time, which it sounds like he will, Lee, LaMarcus Aldridge and Dewayne Dedmon would all see a boost in fantasy value. The Spurs say that a timeline for Gasol's return will be determined at a later date.

David Lee is starting for Pau Gasol against the Nuggets on Thursday.

It's unclear what happened to Gasol, but he may have hurt his finger going through layup lines. He went back to the locker room, so we'll be looking for an update. Stay tuned.
Jan 19 - 8:41 PM

Dejounte Murray will start for Tony Parker (foot) against the Nuggets on Thursday.

It'll be the third start of his career. In his previous two, he averaged 6.5 points, 2.5 boards, 2.5 assists and 0.5 treys. He's actually shot the ball a lot better, but obviously you would have to be in a deep league to grab him.
Jan 19 - 8:30 PM

Tony Parker (left foot pain) will not play on Thursday against the Nuggets.

This is not in a back-to-back set, so this is more about him not being 100 percent. Parker looked fine on Tuesday night with 29 minutes in a win over the Wolves. It sounds like a wear-and-tear issue for the veteran and he could miss more time to get him right. Patty Mills should get close to 30 minutes tonight and is worth a look as a pickup in deeper leagues.
