Fred VanVleet (hip contusion) is questionable vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

This could be an injury from Friday when VanVleet played 19 minutes against the Nets. His minutes are going to be cut quite a bit with the Raptors healthy in the first and second units excluding Jonas Valanciunas (hand), so FVV is only worth a look in deeper leagues. If he's out, that'll make Norman Powell and Delon Wright viable streams or DFS plays.

Enes Kanter (illness) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Thunder.

Kanter missed the Knicks last game in London due to safety concerns, but missed the prior two due to illness. He will return to the lineup, which will take some time at center away from Mitchell Robinson and Luke Kornet.

Richaun Holmes (right foot sprain) is out for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Both Holmes and Deandre Ayton (ankle) are out, which means that it's Dragan Bender time. Coach Igor Kokoskov might even have to dust Ryan Anderson off with both of his top centers out against Minnesota. Quincy Acy will likely be called on to defend Karl-Anthony Towns, as well. Holmes could be in for a big boost in opportunity if he is able to come back before Ayton, who the Suns are unlikely to push hard at this point in time.

Deandre Ayton (left ankle sprain) will not play against the Wolves on Sunday.

Both Ayton and Richaun Holmes (foot) are out, which means that it's Dragan Bender time. Coach Igor Kokoskov might even have to dust Ryan Anderson off with both of his top centers out against Minnesota. Quincy Acy will likely be called on to defend Karl-Anthony Towns, as well. We don't know how long either Ayton and Holmes are out, but none of the other options are really worth adding outside of super-deep leagues.

Nikola Jokic posted his sixth triple-double of the season Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, tallying 19 points (8-of-12 FGs, 0-of-1 FTs), 12 assists, 11 rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Jokic (22 career triple-doubles) is now second on the NBA's all-time list for triple-doubles by a 7-footer, passing the great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He's got a long way to go before he catches Wilt Chamberlain at 78, but the 7-footer has at the very least established himself as one of the top centers in the NBA. Over the last five games Jokic is averaging 23.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 8.6 assists per with 53.8/38.1/85.2 shooting splits.

James Harden continued his historic run during a 138-134 overtime victory over the Lakers on Saturday, scoring 48 points with eight rebounds, six assists, four steals, one block, six turnovers and eight 3-pointers.

For the third game in a row, he was unassisted on all of his points to make it a ridiculous 163 points in the last three without any of those points coming off an assist. Plus, none of his 30 shots came directly off a pass, finishing today shooting 14-of-30 from the field and 12-of-15 from the line. Harden also had 19 attempts from three to make it at least 19 in three games in the last month after hitting that number just once in his career prior to this stretch. The Rockets took 68 treys in this one to put them two short of their record 70 on Wednesday -- the old record was 61. He has scored 30-plus points in 19 straight with Wilt Chamberlain the only player ever with more. Harden is creating some space to win his second consecutive MVP award.

Eric Gordon hit a clutch 3-pointer with 2.0 seconds left to send the game to overtime against the Lakers on Saturday, finishing with 30 points, five rebounds, four assists and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

The Rockets downplayed his knee injury from Wednesday, and it turns out they weren't kidding with the guard excelling late. Gordon hit a clutch three before the big 3-pointer to send the game to OT and hit the first trey in overtime, as well. The Rockets will need him to log major minutes in a higher-usage role to help James Harden, and he should be staggered with some ball-handling chances in the second unit, as well. He should be owned in standard leagues until Chris Paul (hamstring) comes back.

Kyle Kuzma stayed hot against the Rockets on Saturday during a 138-134 overtime loss, making 12-of-19 from the field for 32 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, three turnovers and four 3-pointers in 44 minutes.

He hit all four of his treys in the first quarter to get him to 20 points for his second 20-plus scoring quarter of the season. Kuzma may have to handle the rock even more with Lonzo Ball (ankle) getting hurt, and coach Luke Walton has emphasized that Kuzma needs to pass more if he is going to be the first option. Whatever the case, he will continue to hang some big stat lines until the Lakers start to get players back.
Jan 19 - 11:59 PM

Lance Stephenson made an impact off the bench against the Rockets on Saturday, scoring 16 points with two rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He saw run in overtime to sub in for Lonzo Ball's (ankle) role, and he was the best bench option on the perimeter. Stephenson is likely looking at more minutes, but he will likely have a short leash from coach Luke Walton. He's more of a stream when the Lakers are playing, and Rajon Rondo (hand) is getting closer anyway. If you have dead weight, give him a look.
Jan 19 - 11:42 PM

Ivica Zubac made 4-of-6 from the field and all nine from the line for 17 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and no turnovers in 21 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

After a career-high 26 points on Thursday, Zubac proved it was not a normal one-game situation. He is coach Luke Walton's closer, and he was playing so well that coach Mike D'Antoni had to change his plan to use Nene against Zu in overtime. He may not start and that will carry some extra risk because he will be at the mercy of game flow, but Zubac should be owned in standard leagues.
Jan 19 - 11:37 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 16 points (6-of-12 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs) with nine rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Saturday.

Jackson Jr. got the start at center with Marc Gasol (back) out. The Grizzlies have dropped like a rock in the standings of late, which means we could be getting closer to seeing JJJ unleashed. He excels without Gasol in the lineup and is the future of the franchise. His fantasy value is only going to rise as the season winds down.
Jan 19 - 10:52 PM

Buddy Hield hit an off-balance 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Pistons 103-101 on Saturday, finishing with 35 points, nine rebounds, three assists, one block, one turnover and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It was one of the more unbelievable game-winning shots of the season as the Kings pulled off a huge late comeback down 12 with six minutes left (shot video in link below). His January is among the best for high-level scorers, sitting at a Curry-like 68.2 TS% with averages of 23.4 points, 4.2 boards, 2.0 dimes, 0.3 steals and 4.6 treys. He's taking 25% of his shots in the paint, he's on fire from deep with a 56.1 3P%, and he has been a strong finisher in the last two seasons. Armed with a strong late schedule, anyone wanting to sell high better ask for a whole lot. He looks like the real deal.
