Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has been diagnosed with a left adductor strain.

Adductor strains typically impact the hip and thigh, and we should have more specifics soon -- RHJ injured himself during a recent exhibition game in China. He will begin rehab "immediately" and the Nets haven't provided a timetable for his return. They'll take every precaution with him, but for now we'll tentatively expect him to be ready for training camp.

Pascal Siakam beat the buzzer to win the game on Thursday against the Suns, scoring 10 points (4-of-8 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes.

With Kawhi Leonard resting, Siakam got the call with the game tied late in the fourth quarter. They gave him the ball and cleared out and he took Mikal Bridges off the dribble to hit a tough lefty lay-up off the glass to give the Raptors the win. He only scored 10 points, but he notched his fourth double-double in his last six games. Siakam continues making his case for an All-Star bid, as well as the league's Most Improved Player award.

Kyle Lowry played 40 minutes against the Suns on Thursday, scoring 16 points (4-of-15 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs) with nine rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

Lowry was originally slated to sit this one out, but he woke up feeling better than expected and gave it a go. He became the 65th player in NBA history to surpass the 5,000 career assist mark with his performance against Phoenix. Lowry has struggled shooting of late, just 30.9% over his last five, but his other numbers have still been there. He might gets some nights off down the stretch, but he's still a must-start when active.

Thaddeus Young scored a season-high 27 points against the 76ers on Thursday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Revenge game? He likes to score against the 76ers with his previous season-high coming against them, scoring 26 points back on Dec. 14. His three triples tonight match his season-high, and his offensive game is about as strong as it's been all season. In January, Thad averaged 16.9 points, 6.7 boards, 2.1 dimes, 1.9 steals and 1.0 treys on a 64/70/64 shooting line in those seven. He's pretty close to must-start territory.

Willy Hernangomez had one of his stronger games off the bench against the Kings on Thursday, matching his career-high 16 boards with 11 points, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He was the first player off the bench with the Hornets falling behind to start the game, and perhaps the matchup was a factor for Bismack Biyombo, who played just nine minutes. Even with the strong game, Willy did not close with the Hornets holding a lead, so Borrego doesn't trust him all the way yet. He did not top 14 minutes in any of his previous four outings, so he would only be a desperation add in deeper leagues to see if he can keep it going. Willy isn't free just yet.

Buddy Hield kept his hot January going during a 114-95 loss to the Hornets on Thursday, scoring 24 points with one rebound, one assist, two steals and six 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

The treys keep coming in bunches and his monthly average has gone up every month so far this season. His 4.3 treys per game in the month of January ranks fourth in the NBA behind only the greats of James Harden, Klay Thompson and of course Stephen Curry's absurd 7.3. It would be nice if Hield did a little more in the non-scoring areas, but he's doing more than enough as he flirts with early-round value in standard leagues.

Gary Harris (hamstring) is available vs. the Bulls on Thursday night.

The Nuggets have said all along that they will be careful with Harris after he aggravated his hammy strain a couple weeks ago, so he will likely have a minutes limit. Will Barton (personal) is not going to play today, so Malik Beasley could see run while Monte Morris is likely going to take a hit. Even though it might take a few games to get going, Harris should be owned in all standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 8:08 PM

Will Barton (personal) is out Thursday night against the Bulls.

He was excused from shootaround today, so hopefully everything is OK with Barton. He was starting to get an increase to his minutes with 23 on Tuesday, but now the Nuggets will turn to Malik Beasley, Monte Morris, Torrey Craig and Juancho Hernangomez a little more. Gary Harris is back, so Malone there is some risk in using Morris or Juancho.
Jan 17 - 8:06 PM

Joel Embiid (stiff lower back) will play vs. the Pacers on Thursday.

Embiid was a game-time decision but he's safe to deploy in all fantasy formats, and this should be a fun matchup vs. Myles Turner, Domantas Sabonis and the Pacers' frontcourt.
Jan 17 - 6:44 PM

Kyle Lowry will play vs. the Suns on Thursday.

This contradicts an earlier report and fantasy owners should plug Lowry into all active lineups for what should be a very favorable matchup. To be clear, Kawhi Leonard is still out on Thursday for rest purposes.
Jan 17 - 6:11 PM

Thomas Bryant capped the Wizards' comeback on Thursday with a game-winning layup, finishing with eight points on 4-of-6 shooting, nine rebounds and one block in just 15 minutes.

The Wizards fell behind by 19 points halfway through the second quarter, after which coach Scott Brooks mostly relied on smaller lineups. They roared back in the final period and Bryant won the game on a bucket that was ruled goaltending. Bradley Beal trusted his 21-year-old teammate enough to find him on D.C.'s final possession, and this is yet another step forward for Bryant -- he's been a steady mid-round fantasy value while Dwight Howard recuperates from a back injury.
Jan 17 - 6:08 PM

Maurice Harkless (left knee) is questionable vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

The good news is that Portland gets a few days off before returning for a back-to-back set on Monday and Tuesday. Harkless will likely sit out one of those consecutive games as a precaution, but maybe the prospect of off days will help him suit up for Friday's home game.
