An MRI revealed J.J. Barea has a torn right Achilles tendon, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Mavs feared he tore his Achilles last night, and those fears are true with this terrible news. Barea is 34 and has dealt with a lot of lower-leg injuries, so there could be some concern he might not be able to make it back from this devastating injury. Hopefully, we'll see him back at some point next season. For the Mavs this year, it looks like Maxi Kleber and Jalen Brunson are the fantasy adds with Kleber being the hotter of the two and possessing much higher upside.

Donovan Mitchell shot 12-of-28 from the field and 10-of-12 from the foul line Monday vs. the Trail Blazers, accounting for a game-high 34 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

After getting off to a hot start Monday, scoring nine points on 4-of-5 shooting in the first quarter, Mitchell went quiet before flipping the switch in the fourth quarter. During one stretch of action in the final stanza the second-year guard scored all 14 of Utah’s points, keeping the Jazz within striking distance in a game the team would ultimately lose. Over the last five games Mitchell is averaging 30.0 points, 4.6 assists and 4.4 rebounds per with shooting splits of 46.4/28.9/84.1. The return of Ricky Rubio (hamstring) is likely to impact Mitchell's workload eventually, but not for now as the veteran point guard is on a minutes restriction.

Damian Lillard helped lead Portland to its first win over the Jazz this season by scoring 26 points (10-of-20 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with eight rebounds, eight assists and one three-pointer in 36 minutes of action.

In Portland’s first two meetings with the Jazz, Lillard averaged 19.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals per game with shooting splits of 43.2/46.2/50.0. While the All-NBA guard shot just 1-of-5 from three on the night, he was 9-of-15 inside of the arc and also shot the ball well from the foul line. Lillard, who has now scored 24 points or more in five consecutive games, is averaging 28.8 points, 6.8 assists and 4.4 rebounds per during that stretch.

Kenneth Faried made his Rockets debut on Monday, scoring 13 points (5-of-7 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) with six rebounds in 23 minutes.

Asked before the game if he would limit Faried's minutes initially, coach Mike D'Antoni replied, "He hasn’t played in about three years, so he should have plenty of energy." Faried steps into a void at center without Clint Capela (thumb) for 4-6 weeks, and it wouldn't be surprising if he starts as soon as Wednesday's road game vs. the Knicks. Given the glaring opportunity, Faried is worth grabbing if you need rebounds and a boost in FG%. Just don't expect many defensive stats and be aware of his career 65.4% free throw shooting.

Joel Embiid (back) piled up 32 points, 14 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals on Monday, making 9-of-16 FGs and 14-of-17 FTs in an easy win vs. Houston.

Embiid wasn't officially announced as a starter until minutes before tip-off, but fortunately for owners he started the week with a huge, category-stuffing performance. It helped that he was playing a Houston team without Clint Capela (thumb), and with Kenneth Faried making his debut in a prominent role. Embiid gets two days to rest before Wednesday's game vs. the visiting Spurs, so owners can be confident he'll be ready to go.

Corey Brewer started for Jimmy Butler (mild wrist sprain) on Monday, picking up 11 points, three rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 33 minutes.

Brewer was the primary defender vs. James Harden and things got testy between them, apparently by design. Asked about Harden before the game, Brewer said, "The way he’s playing right now, nothing can help you ... [I'll just] do what I do. That’s being a pest and playing hard." Brewer was impressive and has his new coach's trust, but he can be left on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues. Butler is just day-to-day with his injury, and Brewer is also playing on a 10-day contract. Even if his deal is renewed and eventually guaranteed, it'll be hard for him to carve out value when Butler is active.

Dion Waiters sparked a failed comeback attempt on Monday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

Erik Spoelstra praised Waiters after his strong play on Saturday, saying, "For guys working their way back into the rotation, like Dion, it's not easy ... He made his minutes memorable." That didn't stop Waiters from taking a public jab at coach Spo on Instagram for not starting him yet -- if he continues to play this well, maybe he'll force Spo's hand. He's not an enviable fantasy asset, though, because he rarely offers supporting stats so when shots aren't falling his value tanks in a hurry.

Josh Hart will join the Lakers' starting lineup in place of Lonzo Ball (ankle) on Monday.

L.A. doesn't have a ton of alternatives. It should be Brandon Ingram as the primary ball-handler tonight, but Hart should play huge minutes and Kyle Kuzma will get all the shots he can handle.
Jan 21 - 9:00 PM

Kyrie Irving swiped a career-high eight steals vs. the Heat on Monday, adding 26 points, 10 assists, eight rebounds, two 3-pointers and one block.

In the process, Kyrie became the first Celtics player since Larry Bird to get 20+ points and 10+ assists in at least 10 games during a season. He's simply on fire with averages of 30.8 points, 3.5 triples, 11.0 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 0.8 blocks in four games since returning from a one-game absence last Wednesday. Even beyond the elite scoring, his game right now is as well-rounded as the Earth.

Ricky Rubio (right hamstring) will come off Utah's bench on Monday.

Rubio is on a minute-limit but coach Quin Snyder didn't specify how much he'll be allowed in his return. Despite the reserve role tonight, it shouldn't take long for Rubio to displace Royce O'Neale and shift back into the starting unit.

Starting in place of the injured Anthony Davis, Jahlil Okafor played 35 minutes Monday vs. the Grizzlies and racked up 20 points (9-of-11 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), ten rebounds, two blocked shots and one steal.

Okafor was outstanding Monday evening in Memphis, as he posted his first double-double since a 28-point, ten-rebound effort against the Knicks February 25, 2017. With Davis (finger) set to miss anywhere from one to two weeks as a result of his injury, Okafor won’t lack for opportunities within the Pelicans’ front court rotation. In the six games prior to Monday’s win the fourth-year center scored a total of 21 points, averaging 3.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 10.0 minutes per. While taking a "wait and see" approach with regards to Okafor would be understandable, it may not be a bad idea to take a flier on him with Davis out of the lineup.

Jrue Holiday posted his second points/rebounds double-double of the season Monday, scoring 21 points (9-of-16 FGs, 2-of-6 FTs) with 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one three-pointer in 39 minutes.

Of Holiday’s 14 double-doubles this season 12 have been of the points/assists variety, with the other points/rebounds double-double coming in a November 9 win over the Bulls. The tenth-year pro now has ten career points/rebounds double-doubles, and over the last five games he’s averaging 22.0 points, 6.6 assists, 5.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks per with shooting splits of 49.5/26.9/61.1. Holiday’s struggled with his perimeter shooting, making just 32.5% of his attempts this season, but it should be noted that he’s just a career 35.6% three-point shooter. Despite the shooting woes he’s still a top-20 player in 9-category leagues due to his production in all facets of the game.
