Gregg Popovich expects both Kawhi Leonard (shoulder) and Danny Green (groin) to play on Saturday night.

They were questionable with their injuries, but it sounds like both players should be good to go. Leonard, who missed his previous three games, should be put into lineups, while Green is a shaky play if you have other options.

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant came out firing on all cylinders on Tuesday at Denver in a battle for the best record in the West, and Curry finished with 31 points, six rebounds, four assists and eight 3-pointers in just 30 minutes of the surprisingly easy 142-111 win.

Durant added five triples, hit 11-of-15 shots, and finished with 27 points, four boards, six assists, a steal and a block, while the Warriors scored an NBA-record 51 points in the first quarter. They also hit a team-record 10 3-pointers in the first quarter, and now hold the West's best record at 30-14, putting them 0.5 games up on the Nuggets. The Dubs were determined to make a statement tonight, and they did it in the first 12 minutes. Two of Curry's 3-pointers, which he hit on back-to-back shots, came from another zip code, which you'll see in all the highlight shows over the next 24 hours.

Giannis Antetokounmpo played just 25 minutes and hit just 4-of-9 shots and 4-of-8 free throws, but still finished Tuesday's 124-86 blowout with 12 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and three steals for his fourth triple-double of the season in a really ugly blowout.

All five Bucks starters managed to hit double figures in scoring, but they all had between 11 and 17 points in one of the worst blowouts you'll see. And despite the crazy score, none of the bench players really went crazy in garbage time, either. Giannis was a little gimpy coming into this one with a hip/quad issue, but was clearly good to go tonight. The Bucks will head into a back-to-back situation at Memphis on Wednesday night well rested after tonight's blowout.

Trae Young wore out his childhood hometown team, torching the Oklahoma City Thunder for 24 points, six rebounds, 11 assists and four 3-pointers on 8-of-17 shooting in 33 minutes in Tuesday's impressive 142-126 win.

A couple of his triples came from way beyond the arc and a several of his dimes will be on the highlight shows tonight. We wouldn't be Rotoworld if we didn't mention the Norman OK native's seven turnovers tonight, but he's looked much better recently. Young has helped lead his team to wins over the Sixers and Thunder in two of their last three games, and he's averaging 20.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.2 3-pointers on 43 percent shooting over his last five, also shooting 86 percent at the line. The Hawks broadcast crew called this Trae's most "under control" game and we agree with them. He's playing at a high level right now.
Jan 15 - 10:27 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 21 points in a losing effort against the Hawks on Tuesday, hitting 6-of-15 shots and 6-of-6 free throws.

The Thunder guard also added six assists, three boards, one steal and three triples in 27 minutes. Before the game, Schroder took a shot at his former team and explained why he wanted to be traded. "I wanted to be in a winning mentality organization," Schroder said. "You just can’t go out there and try to lose." The Hawks got the last laugh tonight though, handing the Thunder their fourth loss out of their last five games. Strong game aside, Schroder is more of a handcuff for Russell Westbrook's owners.

Tyus Jones has been diagnosed with a high left ankle sprain.

X-rays were negative, but this sounds like a serious sprain and it will likely cost him several games. Jones is safe to drop in most fantasy leagues, but we'll provide an update when we know more in terms of a timetable. Jeff Teague and Derrick Rose are locked in for heavy minutes in the short term, while Josh Okogie benefits slightly as well.

The Suns were blown out in a 131-97 loss to Indiana on Tuesday in Devin Booker's (back) return as he finished with just eight points on 4-of-12 shots.

Maybe it was just rust, or maybe he's still not 100 percent (the fact that he didn't have restrictions means it was likely the former). Booker missed all four attempts from deep, but did add five assists and five rebounds in 27 minutes. Booker has already missed 13 games this season with a variety of ailments, and that could spell trouble for his fantasy owners later on this season with the Suns expected to go all in for a top pick.
Jan 15 - 9:33 PM

Myles Turner returned from his shoulder injury and hit 7-of-11 field goals and a 3-pointer for 18 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes.

He'd missed four games with the injury and looked pretty good tonight, although it was against the Suns. The Pacers don't play again until Thursday, so the day off on Wednesday should work in his favor to get ready for a tough matchup against Joel Embiid and the Sixers. Welcome back, MT!
Jan 15 - 9:32 PM

Gary Harris (left hamstring tightness) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

He did go through warmups and was a game-time call, so his return should be right around the corner. As long as Harris remains out, Monte Morris and Malik Beasley will have low-end streaming appeal on game nights that aren't as busy.
Jan 15 - 8:08 PM

Ricky Rubio (hamstring) will miss at least another week of action.

He was re-evaluated on Tuesday, but the Jazz didn't offer any details about his progress. He will be re-evaluated in another week, and hopefully we'll get a target date the next time around. Dante Exum (ankle) is out for another couple weeks and Raul Neto (groin) will miss at least another week, so the Jazz will continue to rely on their multi-wing lineups with Donovan Mitchell and Joe Ingles running the offense.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will replace Josh Hart in the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. the Bulls.

So there will be two changes for the Lakers tonight with Tyson Chandler replacing JaVale McGee at center. KCP and Hart have both been hit-or-miss, so fantasy owners are better off waiting for one of them to separate themselves.
Jan 15 - 7:51 PM

Tyson Chandler is expected to start in place of JaVale McGee on Tuesday vs. the Bulls.

McGee's production has fallen off since his hot start to the season, but Tyson Chandler? It's a strange decision from coach Luke Walton, but he's just grasping at straws with the Lakers coming off a loss to the Cavaliers. Chandler is not an add in fantasy leagues and McGee's owners should sit tight while we see how this plays out.
