James Harden was phenomenal during Sunday's 104-101 victory vs. the Wolves, scoring 44 points (15-of-26 FGs, 7-of-9 FTs) with seven 3-pointers, eight assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Before the game, Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau suggested that Harden's defense is "very underrated," adding, "He's got toughness, he's got size and he anticipates." We're not sure the leading MVP candidate qualifies as 'underrated' in any aspect, but he lived up to Thibs' high praise with another completely dominant performance. If you exclude Clint Capela's terrific line, the rest of Houston's roster shot 14-of-42 (33.3%) from the field tonight -- Houston needed every ounce of Harden's two-way play to claim a 1-0 series lead.

Julius Randle (sprained right ankle) will not return to Sunday's game.

Randle landed on a Heat player's foot and screamed in pain, quickly heading to the locker room. He finished with 17 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. New Orleans was already missing Nikola Mirotic (ankle) and the only silver lining is that they're off until Wednesday. We'll list Randle as questionable for that game and should have multiple updates in the next 48 hours.

Sam Dekkeer played a season-high 22 minutes and hit 10-of-15 shots for a season-high 20 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in Sunday's 128-110 win over the Lakers.

With Otto Porter Jr. looking at an MRI on his knee injury Monday, Trevor Ariza en route to Washington after the trade, and Markieff Morris leaving with a neck injury, Dekker was forced into big minutes on Sunday. But he had scored a total of seven points in December, and will certainly take a hit once any of those guys are back in action, and it sounds like Morris and Ariza are likely to play on Tuesday. The risk associated with taking a flier on Dekker outweighs the potential reward, so we'd just leave him on the waiver wire, despite Sunday's promising performance.
Dec 16 - 9:01 PM

Markieff Morris didn't return to Sunday's game after leaving with a neck injury after just 11 minutes.

He finished with four points and four rebounds, but coach Scott Brooks said he could have returned to the game, which was completely controlled by the Wizards. "We had the game under control," he said. "Let him sit out and play Jeff (Green)." It sounds like Morris should be good to go in Week 10, but owners may want to check the news feed prior to Tuesday's game against the Hawks, just to be sure.
Dec 16 - 8:56 PM

John Wall had 28 points and eight assists by halftime and finished with 40 points, six rebounds, 14 assists, three steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in Sunday's bonanza against the Lakers.

He was licking his chops to face Lonzo Ball and had one of the best games of his career. Wall joined Gilbert Arenas as the only Wizards to post a line with 25 points and five assists in a half. Wall was coming off a 17-point game on Friday, but has had either 13 or 14 assists in three straight games, and his heel injury has quickly become a distant memory. Go ahead and fire him up for a big four-game week in Week 10.
Dec 16 - 8:49 PM

Justise Winslow (right ankle pain) will not return to Sunday's game.

Winslow finishes with two points on 1-of-4 shooting, three assists and two rebounds. It's unclear exactly when he got hurt but we should have details after the game. If he's forced to miss time, Derrick Jones Jr. looks ready to assume a bigger role and Josh Richardson should get more ball-handling responsibility.
Dec 16 - 8:32 PM

Victor Oladipo racked up 26 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, five 3-pointers and five steals in 36 minutes vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

After deferring to teammates on Wednesday and struggling with his shot on Friday, we can say with confidence that Oladipo is back. He shot 7-of-13 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line, and the surging Pacers have now reeled off seven straight victories. Owners who waited out Oladipo's rough 11-game absence can one again embrace the elite production.
Dec 16 - 8:04 PM

D'Angelo Russell put on a show during Sunday’s 144-127 drubbing of the Hawks, tallying 32 points, six rebounds, seven assists, five 3-pointers and two steals over 29 minutes.

Russell got whatever he wanted against rookie Trae Young, going 13-of-19 from the field and 1-of-1 from the charity stripe, and as an added bonus for 9-cat owners, he didn't commit a single turnover. The 144 points by the Nets accounted for the most points scored in a regulation home game in franchise history, and their 42-point first quarter was the most points they've scored during an opening period since making the move to Brooklyn.
Dec 16 - 6:54 PM

John Collins netted 29 points on 13-of-19 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, two assists, one block and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

This was a nice bounce-back performance from Collins following Friday’s 11-point dud, and he went right at Jarrett Allen while rocking a 30.5 usage rate. This was his sixth game of the season scoring at least 20 points, and the fifth time he’s done so over the past six games; which is something he only accomplished twice last year. He’s really starting to heat up.
Dec 16 - 6:53 PM

Fred VanVleet (back) will not play Sunday against the Nuggets.

Kyle Lowry is also out with a thigh injury, so Delon Wright gets the start and Kawhi Leonard should do a ton of ball-handling. Toronto gets a few days off before playing at home on Wednesday, so perhaps this was just a schedule-influenced move to give key players extended rest. VanVleet has been playing well enough to tuck away in most leagues, in the hopes that he'll be active for all three games next week.
Dec 16 - 6:47 PM

C.J. Miles will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

The Raptors will be without Fred VanVleet (back), Kyle Lowry (thigh), Jonas Valanciunas (thumb) and Pascal Siakam (back) in this one, so Miles could see plenty of minutes and shots falling his way in the spot-start. He's been really inconsistent this season, though, so he's not much more than a low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Dec 16 - 6:45 PM

Delon Wright will start at point guard vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

Kyle Lowry (thigh), Fred VanVleet (back) and Pascal Siakam (back) are all unavailable, so it will be Wright and C.J. Miles joining the starting unit. Wright is the more attractive streaming play, but weigh your options carefully -- he may only be worthwhile for one game with Lowry and VanVleet day-to-day.
