Trevor Ariza made all six attempts from beyond the arc in Game 1's 102-96 win over the Pacers, scoring a total of 22 points with six boards, two assists, one steal and no turnovers.

The Wizards were taking care of business in the first quarter with 10 fast-break points and 14 of their 28 points in that frame coming from Ariza. As a team, they shot 10-of-16 from downtown and the Wizards were extremely late on their defensive rotations. John Wall caused too many breakdowns and the Pacers will have to figure out a way to keep him from out of the paint. Wall hasn't been shooting the ball well himself and finished with 13 points, five boards, nine assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 18 - 6:31 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Corey Brewer got the start on Tuesday with Anderson on the sidelines, and Sam Dekker saw some increased playing time with the second unit, but neither guy did that much. Instead, James Harden took on most of the offensive burden and popped off for a 40-point triple-double, and it'll likely be more of the same this evening.
Jan 18 - 6:28 PM

Jon Leuer (knee) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday night.

The Pistons will hold him out for his fifth game. With Leuer and Kentavious-Caldwell Pope (shoulder) out, the Pistons will have to play Reggie Bullock, Stanley Johnson and Aron Baynes more than usual. Tobias Harris and Marcus Morris also slightly benefit.
