Coach Brad Stevens said Kelly Olynyk suffered a right shoulder subluxation and went to the hospital for X-rays.

That diagnosis means he only had a partial dislocation, which isn't as bad as a a normal dislocation. Players in the past have missed multiple weeks with this injury, so his prognosis is still unclear. The Celtics would likely give more minutes to Jonas Jerebko and Tyler Zeller. His absence would also make Jared Sullinger and Amir Johnson more likely to get consistent run.

Matt Barnes did not score in 14 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday with one rebound and one steal.

This game got to garbage time in the third and even Vince Carter got some extra minutes against his former team. If you added Barnes after the Marc Gasol (foot) injury, don't panic after this one. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 10 - 10:53 PM

Ryan Hollins scored six points with four rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

He played the the final 14 minutes because of garbage time. Hollins is not a great pickup in most leagues.
Feb 10 - 10:48 PM

Moe Harkless is starting on Wednesday against the Rockets.

Coach Terry Stotts keeps his lineups a secret, so this is nothing new. Harkless can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 10 - 10:44 PM

JaMychal Green made a start for Marc Gasol (foot) on Wednesday against the Nets with 13 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

To his credit, he is 10-of-18 from deep this year after missing all six attempts previously in his career. Green did play the final nine minutes in garbage time, so he likely would have been in the teens. Don't let the starting nod fool you and leave Green on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 10 - 10:42 PM

Mike Conley scored 20 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday.

Marc Gasol (foot) runs the offense a lot and has the most dimes for centers, so we'll be seeing more of Conley in play-making spots. Expect him to be an early-round asset going forward in a contract year.
Feb 10 - 10:28 PM

Wayne Ellington scored 18 points during a 109-90 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He hasn't played well at all since Lionel Hollins was let go. Ellington may get minutes if the Nets make some moves, but he's not playing well enough to be picked up until after that happens.
Feb 10 - 10:21 PM

Solomon Hill had four points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes off the Pacers' bench on Wednesday.

Hill was mentioned in trade rumors earlier this season, connected to the Pelicans, and the Pacers may look to move him before the impending trade deadline. If he stays in Indiana he'll remain a fantasy non-entity while competing for minutes with C.J. Miles, Glenn Robinson III and Chase Budinger.
Feb 10 - 10:18 PM

Myles Turner finished Wednesday's lopsided home loss with 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting, five rebounds, and zero assists, steals or blocks in 23 minutes.

The impressive rookie has scored double-digit points in four straight games, and just as important his minutes are solid at 27.0 during that span. He has been earning the lion's share of minutes at PF ahead of Lavoy Allen (seven points, six rebounds), a situation that's unlikely to change when the Pacers return to action on Feb. 19.
Feb 10 - 10:18 PM

Thomas Robinson played 24 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday with eight points, nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks.

He picked up some extra run in garbage time. Robinson is likely going to be behind Chris McCullough if the Nets do break up their team, so he's not a great stash in almost any league.
Feb 10 - 10:18 PM

Paul George led the Pacers with 22 points, eight rebounds and six assists on Wednesday, hitting two 3-pointers with one block and four turnovers.

In the Hornets' previous five games they allowed just 94.4 points on 41.8 percent shooting, so PG's owners should be reasonably content, though he shot just 8-of-18 from the field. Indy heads into the break with a 28-25 record, good enough for the No. 7 seed, so PG should be in no danger of precautionary rest down the stretch.
Feb 10 - 10:17 PM

Jeremy Lin filled up the stat sheet on Wednesday with 14 points, five boards, four assists, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

Lin could see his minutes increase after the break if Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's dislocated shoulder costs him significant time. Tonight's game was one of Lin's better fantasy outings all season, however, and he's better suited to teams with 14 or more teams.
Feb 10 - 10:16 PM

Cody Zeller notched his first double-double since mid-January on Wednesday, scoring 11 points with 11 rebounds in 23 minutes of action.

Zeller is averaging 25.8 minutes in February and his role will be threatened by the eventual return of Al Jefferson (knee), who has been doing conditioning work and non-contact drills since Jan. 30. He's not a great upside guy rest-of-season, but is still worth a hold in most formats.
Feb 10 - 10:15 PM

Nicolas Batum chipped in 11 points, six boards, five assists, three 3-pointers and two blocks in 38 minutes on Wednesday.

Batum is spending a lot more time as a pick-and-roll ball-handler in Charlotte, and a lot less time as a spot-up shooter, which is paying dividends for his fantasy owners. Now that he's healthy, there's nothing to stop Batum from racking up early-round value over Charlotte's final 29 games. He may also be shifting back to SF more if Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) isn't ready after the break.
Feb 10 - 10:15 PM

Marvin Williams was quiet in 18 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with eight points, two 3-pointers, one assist and one blocked shot.

The win pushed the Hornets' record to 27-26, the first time they've been above .500 since Jan. 2, but Williams' fantasy owners won't be celebrating. He sat with six minutes left in the first quarter and didn't return until the second half, as Frank Kaminsky got hot and soaked up minutes at PF. Williams has been too good to let one dud dissuade his owners, especially since he could earn SF minutes after the break if Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) isn't able to suit up.
