Joffrey Lauvergne scored a career-high 26 points (12-of-15 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) in a 117-109 loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday, adding 12 rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes.

This came out of nowhere with Joffrey playing 15 or fewer minutes in his previous eight games. LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) was out again tonight and Pau Gasol's minutes were held in check because of the back-to-back, so King Joffrey took advantage. The Spurs are off until after the All-Star break and LMA is expected back next game, so Joffrey isn't an add.

Tyreke Evans hit 6-of-10 shots to score 14 points in just 15 minutes on Sunday, adding five assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

This was the second half of a back-to-back set for Indy, but they've thrived in those games with a 6-2 record (5-0 at home). Evans was terrific in both games this weekend and he's scored double-digit points in six straight, with at least one 3-pointer in each of those. Indiana seems wary about playing him more than 18-24 minutes per game, though, which restricts his ownership to deep leagues.

Joel Embiid (back tightness) is questionable to play vs. Houston on Monday.

Embiid was game-time with this injury on Saturday, but he suited up and dropped 31 points in a tough matchup. It may have flared up on him but details are scarce, and owners should await updates on Monday afternoon -- the good news is that it's one of the later tip-offs of a busy all-day slate.

Jimmy Butler (sore right wrist) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

The Wolves did list Butler as out with a right wrist injury back in late September, but that was during his acrimonious holdout -- it hasn't been an issue since. Hopefully he's only on the injury report as a precaution, but we'll know more after Philly's shootaround.

Lonzo Ball will miss 4-6 weeks with a Grade-3 left ankle sprain.

An MRI confirmed the damage and this is a brutal turn of events for Ball and the Lakers, who are currently tied for No. 8 in the West. The good news is that his ankle should be fine after immobilization, rest and rehab, and it's possible he could play soon after the All-Star break. Rajon Rondo (hand) is due back soon and his role becomes even more important, while guys like Lance Stephenson and Josh Hart will also be tasked with more play-making duties for the second unit. Given his uneven contributions in most fantasy leagues, it makes sense to cut Lonzo in re-draft leagues without an IR spot.

Jeff Teague (illness) will start Sunday's game vs. Phoenix.

He was a late addition to the injury report but there's no mention of a minute-limit, so owners should feel free to keep him locked into active lineups.
Jan 20 - 6:27 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. plans to return to the Mavericks for Tuesday's home game vs. the Clippers.

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle informed the team of this decision during Sunday's practice, and the plan is for DSJ to immediately re-join the rotation. His return is good news for a team suddenly playing without J.J. Barea (Achilles) for the rest of the season, and it ends speculation about how long his ostracism from the team would last. He's worth grabbing off the waiver wire if you need a guard, in case he hits his fantasy stride heading toward the All-Star break.
Jan 20 - 5:43 PM

Lou Williams (right hamstring) will not play on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

This is no surprise, since coach Doc Rivers said on Friday that Williams would "for sure" be rested on Sunday. It doesn't sound like Williams' sore hamstring is too serious, but L.A. will take every precaution with their veteran second-unit star. No one player will replace his production, but guys like Patrick Beverley, Tyrone Wallace should see more minutes off the bench.
Jan 20 - 5:41 PM

DeMar DeRozan (left ankle soreness) will play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

DeRozan was listed as probable and said this weekend that he'd "without a doubt" be active for this game, so he should already be in active lineups. Pau Gasol should head back to the bench with LaMarcus Aldridge shifting over to center tonight.
Jan 20 - 5:33 PM

Jamal Crawford (knee soreness) is available to play vs. the Wolves on Sunday.

It's unclear whether he'll actually be in the Suns' rotation, since coach Igor Kokoskov has been trying to play young guys like Elie Okobo and De'Anthony Melton. It's best to take a wait-and-see approach here, even in DFS and deep leagues.

Marc Gasol (back) is probable to play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

Gasol missed Saturday's game against the Raptors, but it's looking like it'll only be a one-game absence with the sore back. His return will shift JaMychal Green back to the second unit, and Ivan Rabb could be headed for a DNP-CD. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to Monday's tip.
Jan 20 - 5:03 PM

Danilo Gallinari (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in San Antonio.

Mike Scott started the second half of Friday's game with Gallinari unavailable, and that could again be the case today. There should also be more minutes available for Tyrone Wallace, while Tobias Harris should see a decent uptick in usage. The Clippers play again on Tuesday in Dallas, and for now, we'll consider The Rooster questionable for that one.
