Harry Giles had the best NBA game of his career during a win over the Pistons on Thursday, scoring a career-high 14 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in 23 minutes.

Could it be? Is coach Dave Joerger finally over playing Kosta Koufos? The blocks for Giles are also a career best for the rook as he played strictly the backup five spot. Koufos was a DNP-CD for the second time in the last four games, and Giles has even seen some playing time at the four this month. The Kings are flying with pace and Giles has been filling up the stat sheet since he was semi-freed six games ago. Willie Cauley-Stein only plays 28.5 minutes per game, so maybe Giles can find 20 minutes at center and maybe a little PF run mixed in. If you have to be ahead of the curve on pickups, Giles could be worth an add given the Kings strong fantasy playoff schedule. Also, please don't trade for Enes Kanter, Kings.

Devin Booker scored a game-high 32 points against the Hornets on Saturday during a 135-115 loss, adding two rebounds, 11 assists, no turnovers and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He scored 22 points, but he did not get much help from his backcourt mates. Booker was closing at the point for most of the fourth, and coach Igor Kokoskov kept him in until there were only three minutes left despite the blowout. The Suns also play on Sunday against the Wolves, so maybe a glass-half-full thought is that he has to be healthy for the Suns to leave him in there that long. He'll likely have an extra edge against his Kentucky buddy Karl-Anthony Towns on Sunday.

JaMychal Green is starting against the Raptors on Saturday.

Marc Gasol (back) is not playing, so Green will slot into the power forward spot with Jaren Jackson Jr. sliding to center. Green should be owned in standard leagues at this point.

Robin Lopez is starting over Bobby Portis against the Heat on Saturday.

It could be a matchup move against Hassan Whiteside, or maybe the Bulls are trying to showcase him. Lopez should have some short-term value in fantasy before they can unload him in a trade, so he's worth a look if you need a center in a pinch.

Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) will not return on Saturday against the Hornets.

It didn't look like he had a bad injury or anything, and the Suns are getting blown out anyway. Ayton had one of his worst games of the year, and chances are his coach will say some things about his lack of energy in the paint. Hopefully, this is just a one-time thing for the rookie, and also Richaun Holmes (foot) isn't returning. Perhaps the back-to-back is a factor here, too. If they're both out, Quincy Acy would be looking at plenty of minutes as a low-end speculative add in deep leagues.

Richaun Holmes (left foot sprain) will not return to Saturday's game against the Hornets.

Both Holmes and Deandre Ayton were ruled out early in the fourth quarter of lopsided game. He went for four points and four rebounds in 14 minutes before exiting. It didn't appear that Holmes hurt himself at all, so this could just be precautionary with the Suns on the front end of a back-to-back set. We'll consider Holmes questionable for Sunday's game against the Wolves.

Paul George provided a signature moment with an and-one 3-pointer with 5.1 seconds left to beat the 76ers 117-115 on Saturday, finishing with 31 points, six rebounds, five assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He made all 11 free throws and absolutely carried the Thunder late for one of their biggest wins of the season. OKC also owns Philly with their 19th straight win for the longest active streak against any opponent this season. George continues stuffing the stat sheet this month, averaging 27.9 points, 7.2 boards, 3.4 dimes, 2.4 steals and 3.8 treys on a 42/39/83 shooting line. He is in the top five for the MVP race.

Ish Smith (right adductor tightness) will not play against the Kings on Saturday.

Smith missed a bunch of time due to a groin issue earlier this season, so this isn't great news. Luke Kennard, Bruce Brown, Langston Galloway, and Jose Calderon will see more time in Smith's absence.
Jan 19 - 6:59 PM

Marc Gasol (upper back soreness) will not play on Saturday against the Raptors.

It's a back-to-back set and the Grizzlies can't get wins these days, so this is not much of a surprise. Considering he talked with ownership this week, the likelihood he gets traded may have increased as the Grizzlies make some personnel changes. With him and Joakim Noah out, Jaren Jackson Jr. and JaMychal Green will get all they can eat while Ivan Rabb and Omri Casspi pick up more run, too.
Jan 19 - 6:56 PM

Wesley Matthews (right wrist sprain) will start against the Pacers on Saturday.

Matthews was questionable entering the game, but will indeed suit up. He'll continue to play his usual role as the team's starting shooting guard. Deploy him as you normally would.
Jan 19 - 6:53 PM

Eric Gordon (right knee) will play Saturday against the Lakers.

Gordon returned from an extended absence last time out and fared quite well in 21 minutes of action. His minutes should be in the 20-25 range again as he works his way back up to full speed.

Russell Westbrook made 8-of-21 from the field for 21 points with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, four turnovers and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes before fouling out against the 76ers on Saturday.

Joel Embiid fell on him down the stretch, and Westbrook got up and wanted a piece of The Process -- his teammates stopped him. Westbrook made both free throws, and interestingly he's 11-of-13 from the line in the clutch despite shooting 64.2% overall. He's also sitting at just 38.4% from the field because he's struggling in the paint, in mid-range and from three. He'll be a triple-double threat every night, but he is destroying fantasy owners in percentages.
