Austin Daye (lat strain) will not play against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He had a big game back on Mar. 22 when the Spurs rested Danny Green, but he's been quiet since. Daye can be left on the wire in all leagues and the severity of his injury is not yet known.

Blake Griffin posted his first triple-double of the season to snap a nine-game losing streak in a 116-103 win over the Hawks on Wednesday, scoring 26 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

Finally. The Clippers have been destroyed this month with only one November win before today and Griffin's stats have been a letdown. In his previous November games, he averaged just 22.3 points, 7.4 boards, 4.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.9 treys on 38.2 percent from the field. Before his owners get too excited, this did come against the Hawks and rookie John Collins. Griffin's fantasy owners should be rooting for wins this year to give him more incentive to play late in the season.

Jeremy Lamb started the second half of Wednesday's game for Nic Batum (elbow), posting 24 points (9-of-17 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with seven rebounds, five assists, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

Lamb worked over Kelly Oubre on offense, and he would be in line for big minutes if Batum misses any games. Batum exited tonight's game with a 'contusion', but it's the same elbow he tore a ligament in this summer, so Charlotte will be extra cautious here. It makes sense to add Lamb while we await an update from the Hornets.

Lou Williams made his first start of the season for 20 points with one rebound, eight assists, one steal, six turnovers and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

He and DeAndre Jordan have shown a good rapport together and maybe that's why Williams moved into the starting lineup. Even if coach Doc Rivers does play the matchups with Lou as a starter, he's now looking at minutes in the low 30s and he should be asked to score the ball a bunch on a team that lacks perimeter scoring. The move to the starting lineup could also help his dimes with a season high tonight. His fantasy owners can expect him to flirt with top-50 value now that Patrick Beverley (knee) is out for the season.

The Hornets extended their win streak to three games on Wednesday, with Dwight Howard chipping in 26 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and one block.

The Wizards have been a tough matchup for centers but they are give up 10.4 offensive boards per game, so it wasn't surprising to see Dwight snag five on the offensive end. He was coming off a monster 25-point, 20-rebound game and is simply cruising as we head into the holiday season.
Nov 22 - 10:42 PM

John Wall notched 31 points, 11 assists, one rebound, one steal and one block during an OT load loss on Wednesday, making 13-of-26 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs in 41 minutes.

Wall is playing a lot of isolation sets offensively this year, which is one reason his FG percentage has dipped to 42.8%, so it was nice to see him make half his attempts tonight. The best news for fantasy owners is that Wall's recent knee swelling doesn't seem like a lingering issue, and he gets a few days to rest before hosting the Blazers on Saturday.

Wes Johnson made 8-of-10 from the field and both free throws for 24 points against the Hawks on Wednesday, adding one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and six 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

No turnovers here gives him 2.2 points per possession used and a 110.3 TS% for one of the most efficient games of the year. The Clippers didn't run out as many three-guard lineups with Lou Williams in the first unit, they're going to miss Patrick Beverley (knee) for the rest of the season, and Danilo Gallinari (glute) for at least another 5-8 days. Johnson has been sneaky in nine-category leagues and he may have value in deeper formats until Gallo gets back. This new rotation wrinkle could also help him, but try not to overreact to this big line unless he was already on your short list.
Nov 22 - 10:38 PM

Joel Embiid smashed the Blazers' frontcourt on Wednesday for 28 points (11-of-19 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), 12 rebounds, two blocks and one assist.

Embiid also made a 3-pointer and he did his work in just 30 minutes, with neither Jusuf Nurkic nor Ed Davis able to slow him down. He has been dealing with some left knee soreness recently, so it can't hurt to double-check his status prior to Saturday's game, but he's not on the injury report.
Nov 22 - 10:19 PM

Evan Turner started the third quarter on Wednesday and finished with four points, four boards, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes, making 2-of-7 FGs without any FT attempts.

Portland mustered just 37 points in the first half tonight, so Turner was promoted to generate some easy looks. It didn't make much difference and the Blazers lost by 20 points. Shabazz Napier's emergence has threatened his touches as a backup ball-handler, and the return of Al-Farouq Aminu could result in a logjam on the wings. In any case, the streaky Turner has been a liability outside of deep leagues.
Nov 22 - 10:17 PM

Damian Lillard played through his right ankle injury on Wednesday, posting 30 points with six 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

The injury didn't look good when it happened on Monday, but Lillard received treatment every day and said the ankle responded better than he anticipated. He's a gamer who often plays at less than 100 percent, and the playing time tonight proves he'll be fine going forward. He finished 11-of-27 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line.
Nov 22 - 10:14 PM

Joe Harris scored 18 points vs. his former team on Wednesday, going 7-of-10 from the field and 4-of-7 from deep with five boards, four assists, two steals and one block.

Harris did his damage in 29 minutes tonight, and he fell just shy of his career-high 19 points. His minutes have stabilized in the mid-20s, but tonight's line was the clear outlier -- Cleveland's defense isn't good, to put it lightly, and Harris is best viewed as a 3-point specialist.
Nov 22 - 9:52 PM

John Collins made his first NBA start at power forward against the Clippers on Wednesday, making 7-of-9 from the field for 14 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and four steals in 38 minutes.

Even though the Hawks lost, this was a win for Collins as he kept his fouls down and was efficient as usual. He also mentioned he was excited about his matchup with Blake Griffin today. "When I mature in this league, that's want I want to do," Collins said before the game. The Hawks haven't been too aggressive on playing Collins at the four this season, but he likely has more chances going forward. He should be owned in standard leagues.
