Latest Headlines

The Cavs, Wolves and Sixers have completed the Kevin Love trade.

We all know the details and the only difference is that the Wolves will get a $6.3 million trade exception, not the $4 million reported yesterday. In case you weren't around the past month, the Cavs get Kevin Love; the Wolves get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Thaddeus Young and that aforementioned trade exception; and the Sixers get Luc Mbah a Moute, Alexey Shved and a 2015 first-round pick.

Rodney Hood (leg) will not play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

This is his second game in a row on the shelf and it's not a great sign that he's getting ruled out this early. For now, consider him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons. Joe Ingles is coming off a 21-point game vs. the Clippers, and guys like Joe Johnson and Alec Burks will get a small bump in value off the bench with Hood out.

Tony Parker said after Sunday's game that Dejounte Murray will likely be the Spurs' starting PG going forward.

"[Gregg Popovich] told me ... that he thought it was time," Parker said. "And I was like, 'No, problem.'" He added that he'll help Murray "as best [he] can," and the 35-year-old embodied professionalism in the wake of his demotion. Parker's fantasy value doesn't change too much and his usage rate could actually increase, but Murray gets a solid bump as the starter going forward.

The Pacers snapped a two-game losing streak on Sunday, aided by Thaddeus Young's 14 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block and zero turnovers in 39 minutes.

Young isn't a good free-throw shooter (67.7% for his career) but he's found a way to avoid that problem -- just don't shoot them. The veteran is averaging a career-low 0.8 free-throw attempts per game this season, and has just four attempts in his past 15 games. He's been a steady mid-round value over the past few weeks.

DeAndre Jordan (left ankle sprain) is listed out for Monday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

He's being ruled out a day in advance, which is never good, and we've yet to hear about DJ ramping up his activity during practices or shootarounds. Montrezl Harrell continues to benefit the most from his absence, despite coming off the bench behind fill-in starter Willie Reed. Jordan's next chance to return comes Wednesday vs. the visiting Celtics.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson tied his career-high with seven assists on Sunday, adding 21 points, eight rebounds and one block in a road win at Detroit.

RHJ also sank a pair of 3-pointers tonight, going 8-of-15 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line with just one turnover in 31 minutes. He came in with nine triples on the season, but took advantage of a Pistons defense that's allowed opponents to shoot 37.6% from deep this season (fifth-highest in the NBA). He also had seven assists on Jan. 13, and his well-rounded fantasy contributions make him a reliable mid-round value in nearly all formats.
Jan 21 - 7:29 PM

Jordan Clarkson led the Lakers to victory on Sunday, scoring 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting to go with six boards, 10 assists, one 3-pointer, three steals and one turnover in 38 minutes.

Clarkson was solid throughout this game, but he was particularly impressive after halftime, rocking a 32.3 usage rate while paving the way to victory for the Lakers. He's going to be much more involved in the offense while Lonzo Ball (knee) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) are out, and whether he's starting or coming off the bench, he's essentially guaranteed minutes in the 30s. As a side note, Clarkson became the first Laker to have a 25-10 game off the bench since Magic Johnson did it back in 1996.
Jan 21 - 7:07 PM

Alex Caruso was impressive in Sunday's win over the Knicks, scoring nine points on 4-of-6 shooting to go with four boards, eight assists, two steals and zero turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench.

Caruso was able to earn some extra minutes in the rotation with both Lonzo Ball (knee) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) watching from the sidelines, and he kept himself on the floor with his playmaking and solid defense. Ball seems doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Celtics, so Caruso could be someone to think about throwing out there as a deep league streamer or DFS punt play after Sunday's impressive outing.
Jan 21 - 7:00 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie exacted some revenge vs. the Pistons on Sunday, hitting a game-winner in the paint to finish with 22 points, five assists, four rebounds and four 3-pointers.

The Nets blew a lead in the fourth quarter tonight, but Dinwiddie bailed them out by navigating two defenders to sink a tough, leaning shot in the lane (see link below). He made 9-of-13 shots tonight and we haven't seen his role decrease with D'Angelo Russell active. The Nets seem eager to find him minutes and he's worth holding in all leagues as we watch how his role evolves.
Jan 21 - 6:55 PM

Kris Dunn's concussion symptoms haven't improved, according to coach Fred Hoiberg, and his status is uncertain for games on Monday and Wednesday.

Beat writer Carlos Douglas Jr. writes that Dunn "is now in danger of missing" those two games -- given how strict the NBA's protocol is for concussions, he's probably closer to 'doubtful' than 'questionable'. If he does miss more time, expect Jerian Grant to continue starting at PG with Ryan Arcidiacono and Denzel Valentine pitching in off the bench.
Jan 21 - 6:31 PM

JaMychal Green (right ankle) will not play vs. Philly on Monday.

The Grizzlies' injury report is a mess. Andrew Harrison (shoulder) is probable, Jarell Martin (left hand), Dillon Brooks (illness) and Mario Chalmers (shoulder) are questionable, while Chandler Parsons (knee) and James Ennis III (calf) are out. Mike Conley is also still out, of course, and fantasy owners relying on anyone from Memphis should monitor player news throughout Monday afternoon.
Jan 21 - 6:18 PM

Jarell Martin (left hand) is questionable to play Monday vs. Philadelphia.

This is the first we're hearing of a hand issue for Martin, but with Dillon Brooks (illness) also questionable for Monday's game and JaMychal Green (ankle), Chandler Parsons (knee) and James Ennis (calf) already ruled out, guys like Ivan Rabb and Vince Hunter could be forced into big minutes tomorrow. Check back for another update on Martin following Monday morning's shootaround.
