Tyrone Wallace posted 12 points on a very efficient 5-of-7 shooting across 33 minutes Monday against the Rockets.

Wallace was making another start with C.J. Williams (ankle) on the shelf, and he was able to chip in with three steals, two assists, two rebounds and a blocked shot in addition to 1-of-2 shooting from behind the arc. He has some short-term fantasy appeal as long as Austin Rivers (heel), Danilo Gallinari (glute) and Williams are on the shelf. He is also not a bad low-cost DFS option while starting. However, as the Clips get healthier his fantasy window of usefulness will start closing.

Wes Johnson was good for 11 points, 12 rebounds and four blocked shots over 31 minutes in Monday's victory against the Rockets.

Johnson and Montrezl Harrell did a good job stepping up with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) sidelined, as they combined for six swats. And, they were a Jordan-like 4-of-6 combined from the free-throw line. Johnson is averaging 12.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.7 blocked shots and 1.0 steals over his past three outings, but he'll be back to having minimal fantasy appeal in standard formats once Jordan can make his way back.
Jan 16 - 2:31 AM

Montrezl Harrell posted 10 points with six rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 32 minutes in Monday's win against the Rockets, his former team.

Harrell had a chance to exact a little revenge against his old teammates with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on the shelf and only Willie Reed standing in his way. While Reed started, he was limited to 10 minutes, opening the door for the more gifted offensive player Harrell to shine. He hit 4-of-7 from the field and 2-of-3 from the free-throw line while posting a plus-8 rating. As long as Jordan is sidelined Harrell has some short-term fantasy and DFS appeal.
Jan 16 - 2:28 AM

Lou Williams finished with a game-high 31 points on 12-of-19 shooting in Monday's 113-102 victory against the Rockets.

Williams hit 4-of-8 from behind the 3-point line while chipping in with six rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 40 minutes. He is having a ridiculous January, averaging 31.5 points, 5.9 assists and 2.0 rebounds across eight outings. His hot streak has come with Austin Rivers (heel) and Danilo Gallinari (glute) looking on as spectators. He might see a bit of a hit to his fantasy value once those players can return, but he'll remain a must-start fantasy option.
Jan 16 - 2:21 AM

Willie Reed finished with just two points over 10 minutes in Monday's start against the Rockets.

Reed made another start with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) nursing an injury, but it was Montrezl Harrell and Wesley Johnson picking up more of the slack than Reed. He went for 14 points and 13 rebounds last time out to turn the heads of fantasy owners, but this performance is exactly why you need to exercise extreme caution outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Jan 16 - 2:17 AM

Blake Griffin finished with 29 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Monday's 113-102 victory against the Rockets before being ejected. He and Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni were assessed technicals for exchanging words in the fourth quarter, and then Griffin was hit with a second tech after jawing with Trevor Ariza.

Griffin hit 11-of-22 from the floor and he was 7-of-8 from the free-throw stripe before departing. The only complaint from fantasy owners might be the fact he was 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line and he turned it over five times. Still, his point total was his highest since Nov. 25, a span of nine games and a couple of injuries. The buy-low window will slam shut if he is able to replicate these results Wednesday against the visiting Nuggets. We'll see if there is any disciplinary action after his two techs.
Jan 16 - 2:00 AM

Gerald Green joined Trevor Ariza and James Harden in a post-game altercation Monday, as the trio tried to force their way into the locker room of the Clippers looking to confront Austin Rivers.

During the game, Green finished with 11 points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals while blocking a shot. He went 4-of-14 from the field while ending up 1-of-8 from behind the 3-point line. It's uncertain if he will face any sort of a fine or disciplinary action from the league for his part in the donnybrook, but we'll keep an eye on it and pass any breaking news along.
Jan 16 - 1:46 AM

James Harden and teammates Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green pushed into the locker room of the Clippers on Monday night looking to confront Austin Rivers, according to league sources. Security escorted the trio out before anything physical took place.

Apparently Harden's hamstring is feeling good. It's uncertain if he will face any sort of a fine or suspension from the league as a result of the altercation, but we'll keep an eye on it closely. Head coach Mike D'Antoni said Harden could return from his hamstring injury Thursday or Saturday, but any kind of penalty from the league could delay his return. Stay tuned. The teams meet again Feb. 28.
Jan 16 - 1:43 AM

Eric Gordon finished with 19 points over 34 minutes in Monday's 113-102 road loss against the Clippers.

Gordon also chipped in with four rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers while going 7-of-21 overall from the floor. He was able to extend his streak with two or more 3-pointers to 14 games dating back to Dec. 16, and he has at least one three in 26 straight contests dating back to Nov. 14. He'll continue to be one of the primary scoring options in H-Town while James Harden (hamstring) is on the shelf.
Jan 16 - 1:32 AM

Ryan Anderson finished with 12 points across 25 minutes in Monday's 113-102 road loss against the Clippers.

Anderson ended up hitting 4-of-9 from the field, including 2-of-6 from behind the 3-point line, while going 2-of-2 from the free-throw stripe. He also finished with four assists and he didn't turn it over once. After a four-game rough patch with single-digit point totals, he is averaging 15.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.0 3-pointers per game over the past two contests. He remains a decent 3-point specialist with a side of rebounds.
Jan 16 - 1:29 AM

Trevor Ariza ended up with 17 points on Monday against the Clippers before being ejected. After the game Ariza, James Harden and Gerald Green pushed into the L.A. locker room to confront Austin Rivers, and they were escorted out by security before anything got physical.

Ariza added five rebounds, three steals and three turnovers over his 34 minutes before getting the gate after jawing with Blake Griffin late in the game. He has banged home four 3-pointers in three of his past four outings to make his fantasy owners happy, and he has picked up at least two steals in each of his past three contests. Ariza continues to be a valuable contributor in category-based leagues, with slightly lesser value in points-based formats. It's uncertain if any discipline is forthcoming after the dust-up after the game. Stay tuned.
Jan 16 - 1:20 AM

Clint Capela went for 15 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots over 28 minutes in Monday's road loss against the Clippers.

Capela hit 6-of-10 from the field while turning it over just once. The most impressive part of his stat line was the six offensive rebounds, keeping possessions alive for the visitors. Unfortunately they needed a lot more, as they Clips outscored the Rockets by eight in the second half to secure a much-needed victory. He has swatted at least one shot in each of his eight games since returning from a right orbital fracture on Dec. 29.
Jan 16 - 1:17 AM

Chris Paul finished with 19 points, seven assists, rebounds and a blocked shot over 35 minutes in Monday's game against the Clippers, his first game against his former team.

CP3 was given a hearty ovation from the home crowd before the game, and then the Clips spoiled the homecoming with a 113-102 victory. He finished 8-of-17 from the field, including 3-of-10 from behind the 3-point line, while turning it over just once. He has picked up the pace with James Harden (hamstring) on the mend, posting at least six or more rebounds and six or more assists in each of his seven games in January while averaging 24.8 points per game over the past six contests.
Jan 16 - 1:13 AM

Victor Oladipo torched the Jazz for 28 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals, five 3-pointers and just one turnover in Monday's easy 109-94 win over the Jazz.

All-Star voting ends tonight and it's possible Dipo picked up some more votes with this strong line. He simply has to make the All-Star team this year as one of the East's best players and he's the ninth most valuable fantasy player this season in nine-cat. His owners suffered through a rough four-game stretch in early January when he was hurt, but all is forgiven after one of his best games since returning action six games ago.
Jan 15 - 11:46 PM

Cory Joseph hit 5-of-7 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals in Monday's easy 109-94 win over the Jazz.

The game was a blowout, just like Sunday's win over Phoenix, so the Pacers let Joseph play while giving Darren Collison a bit of a rest. Joseph has played very well in his last two games, but the Pacers probably won't be blowing people out of the gym on a regular basis. In fact, they'll get a tough test on Thursday night at Portland, so look for Joseph to cool off in that one.
