Kenneth Faried turned the tables and roasted the Jazz for 24 points, 21 rebounds, five assists and six turnovers on 11-of-19 shooting in Saturday's win.

The Nuggets are constantly abused by opposing bigs (Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors both double-doubled tonight for the Jezz), but Faried went nuts in this one, recording the first 20-20 game of his career. Timofey Mozgov, who had a monster game on Thursday, gave way to Faried tonight, as Mozzy finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Kevin Martin returned from a wrist injury on Wednesday against the Celtics, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He was better than expected and really turned it on after a slow start tonight. Martin was on fire before his injury with a 37-point game in his last outing and a 34-point one before that, so he should be owned in all leagues following this game. Although, his fantasy owners should consider selling high once he solidifies his value.

Josh Smith racked up 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal, three blocks and four 3-pointers on 7-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Mavs.

As an added bonus, he didn't attempt any free throws, which means he didn't hurt you there. Normally, we'd say it's time to hit the phones and deal Smith before he comes down to earth, but with Dwight Howard no iffy going forward with edema in his right knee (fluid build up), Smith could be ready to go on a nice run. Just don't expect him to be this good on most nights.

Terrence Jones finally returned from his leg injury on Wednesday and had 10 points, five rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.

He hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer, and while we've not been high on him, the news of Dwight Howard's edema in his right knee changes things. Jones could see some serious run if Howard is going to miss time, so we now like the idea of taking a flier on him. He could be forced into heavy action for an extended period of time if Howard is going to be shelved.

An MRI revealed Dwight Howard (knee, ankle) has a fluid buildup in his right knee and he will miss at least the next two games.

He was already out for tonight with a right ankle sprain, so another injury to his right leg is worrisome. Howard also missed 11 games earlier this season with a right knee injury, which was never confirmed by an MRI by the team. In other words, this injury is either worse or the Rockets are just sharing more information. Whatever it is, it sounds like he's going to miss time. Terrence Jones should be picked up in all leagues following a nice start.

Jusuf Nurkic looked good against the Pelicans on Wednesday with 15 points, nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 29 minutes.

It was only a matter of time before he got it going again, and that time has come. Nurkic is coming off a nice game against the Clippers on Monday and he's back in coach Brian Shaw's good graces. The rookie should be owned in all leagues because he'll flirt with top-50 value in just 22 minutes per game.

Carmelo Anthony (rest) is questionable to play agains the Pacers on Thursday.

This news was expected because Melo is not going to play on most back-to-back sets. He played well on Wednesday in a win over the Thunder, scoring 31 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 38 minutes. His owners will want to bench him for Thursday while Lance Thomas, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Langston Galloway will play more.

Michael Carter-Williams returned from an illness on Wednesday and just missed a triple-double with 14 points, nine rebounds, 10 assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer on 5-of-10 shooting.

Looky there, MCW shoots it 10 times and has an efficient night and the Sixers win. Funny how that works. On a serious note, he's been a fantasy beast on most nights he's played this season, and it was good to see him back in action.
Jan 28 - 11:18 PM

D.J. Augustin laid an egg on Wednesday, missing all seven of his shots and finishing with just two points, one rebound, four assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

The good news is that he played so many minutes and Brandon Jennings isn't coming back anytime soon. Yes, this game was a total buzzkill for all of DJA's new owners, but he should bounce back in the next one. Don't cut him.
Jan 28 - 10:56 PM

Anthony Davis (groin) will have an MRI on Thursday.

It was great to see him return from an injury, but coach Monty Williams pulled his star forward because he was laboring. The Pelicans tend to take it easy on Davis when he's not at 100 percent, so we would consider him questionable to play on Friday against Blake Griffin. Davis finished with 24 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 37 minutes.
Jan 28 - 10:48 PM

Kevin Love suffered a left knee injury on Wednesday but played through it, hitting just 3-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, 12 rebounds and zero assists.

We were hoping for a much bigger line with LeBron James in street clothes, but Love just didn't have it tonight, while Kyrie Irving took care of Cleveland's offensive needs. Love suffered the knee injury thanks to being run into by Chris Kaman, and we'll have to see how he's feeling on Thursday morning. Consider him day-to-day for now. If he's going to miss time, Tristan Thompson could become relevant again.
Jan 28 - 10:31 PM

Nicolas Batum played through his wrist injury on Wednesday and had seven points, four rebounds, seven assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer on 3-of-8 shooting.

The line wasn't spectacular, but he was effective, and his owners should just be thankful that his injury doesn't appear to be serious enough to keep him out long term. He missed the last two Blazers games before returning tonight.
