Stephen Curry scored 25 points with three rebounds, six assists, three steals and four 3-pointers during a 110-97 win over the Wolves on Saturday.

His output isn't quite as great in the scoring department with just 18.3 points per game over his last four, adding 4.0 rebounds, 7.5 dimes, 2.8 steals and 2.0 triples on 51.8 percent from the field. Curry is becoming a well-rounded fantasy asset and should be a top-five guy the rest of the way with very little slumps in value.
Dec 28 - 2:08 AM

David Lee played 17 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday with 10 points, seven boards and two blocks on Saturday.

His minutes are still being held in check and there's no word of that changing soon. Coach Steve Kerr also said that Lee will stay in the second unit for the foreseeable future. He's not as great as Draymond Green in reality and in fantasy. Still, Lee is worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 28 - 2:00 AM

Draymond Green flirted with a five-by-five line against the Wolves on Saturday with four points, eight rebounds, six assists, three blocks and a career-high six steals in 32 minutes.

He just seems to find a way to fill it up and he remains as the Western Conference version of Jimmy Butler -- to a slightly lesser degree. In case you needed convincing, David Lee's return is not hurting Green's fantasy value and that shouldn't be the case all season.
Dec 28 - 1:57 AM

Zach LaVine handed out a career-high 14 assists against the Warriors during a 110-97 loss on Saturday, adding 12 points, four rebounds, one steal and five turnovers.

It was just his second double-double of his career. LaVine is not shooting the ball well, making just 37 percent from the field over his last 11 games. With Ricky Rubio (ankle) set to return in a couple weeks, LaVine is even less of an attractive fantasy option.
Dec 28 - 1:54 AM

Gorgui Dieng scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 26 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The timing of the bad game is worse because Nikola Pekovic (ankle) might be coming back soon. Still, Pek has dealt with a slew of injuries and he's one of the most injury prone players in the league, so keep Dieng owned across the board.
Dec 28 - 1:50 AM

Shabazz Muhammad scored nine points with nine rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

While the news of Kevin Martin (wrist) getting closer certainly doesn't help Muhammad's value, there's no need to panic. He plays three different positions and the Wolves are clearly rebuilding. Muhammad is doing more than just scoring on the stat sheet and does have a block in three straight, so keep him owned in standard leagues.
Dec 28 - 1:47 AM

Troy Daniels scored 14 points with four 3-pointers on 5-of-6 from the field in nine minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He scored all 14 of those points in the last five minutes of the game. Daniels isn't entrenched in the rotation yet, but coach Flip Saunders says it could be coming. Although, that could be moot with Kevin Martin (wrist) getting closer.
Dec 28 - 1:43 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored a season-high 39 points in 32 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with 11 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and five turnovers during a 135-129 overtime victory.

He made 14-of-27 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line for a ridiculous usage rate of 50.5 tonight. Cousins raised his season usage to 34.0 and only trails Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade in that category. Advanced stats don't need to tell you that Boogie is the best starting center in fantasy and hopefully he is done with illnesses.
Dec 28 - 1:39 AM

Darren Collison made 9-of-10 from the field with three 3-pointers for 27 points against the Knicks on Saturday with one rebound, 10 assists and two steals in 43 minutes.

The Knicks are not good and that shooting line is good for a 105.0 effective field goal percentage. Collision has shot the ball well over his last five, making 56.7 percent from the field for averages of 19.4 points, 5.0 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.6 triples in 38.2 minutes per game. There's a good chance this might be the apex of his fantasy value.
Dec 28 - 1:35 AM

Ray McCallum played 30 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and one block.

The Kings went small tonight and used Rudy Gay at the four down the stretch. They won't be able to get away with this too often and Ramon Sessions (back) won't be out long. While McCallum did get some run at shooting guard on Friday, he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Dec 28 - 1:31 AM

Carmelo Anthony made 13-of-29 from the field for 36 points against the Kings during an overtime 135-129 loss with 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 46 minutes.

Yeah, about that knee soreness. Anthony has played a whopping 41.8 minutes per game in his last four since returning from knee soreness, averaging 30.8 points, 7.5 boards, 3.5 dimes and 1.3 steals. He is a prime shut down candidate, so his hot streak right now presents a great sell-high chance for his owners.
Dec 28 - 1:22 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. played well in his 30 minutes of action against the Kings on Saturday with 19 points, five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

He actually blocked DeMarcus Cousins and he wasn't a complete embarrassment on defense like he was on Christmas Day. Hardaway Jr. has logged 33.6 minutes per game over his last five with averages of 15.2 points, 3.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.4 triples. He'll lose value soon, but he's worth a look in standard leagues.
Dec 28 - 1:17 AM

Shane Larkin played 35 minutes off the bench on Saturday with 14 points, four rebounds, four assists, five steals, one block and one turnover against the Kings.

He didn't score more than five points in any of his previous four and didn't play above 17 in any of his previous three, so this game seems like a fluke. Plus, Larkin will lose playing time once J.R. Smith returns. Leave him on the wire in most leagues.
Dec 28 - 1:13 AM

Cole Aldrich had his best game of the season on Saturday with 18 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in just 24 minutes.

He fouled out and certainly was handled by DeMarcus Cousins, but Aldrich's arrow is pointing up. He was tremendous in his brief time in summer league and is arguably the best healthy two-way big man on NYK, so he might have some short-term value while Amare Stoudemire is out. He might have value beyond STAT's return, too.
Dec 28 - 1:10 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo played 19 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday with five points, five boards and two blocks during a 90-85 loss.

He had some foul trouble tonight and coach Jason Kidd didn't really want to take out a hot Khris Middleton. Antetokounmpo's minutes have been solid with 30.1 per game over his previous 10 and he had been shooting the ball well at 53.5 percent in that span. In other words, he is fine.
