According to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register, the Clippers are not shopping Blake Griffin.

Teams have inquired about Griffin, but the Clippers still believe that they can win this season and they aren't interested in making a move. There were reports on Friday that the Clippers had discussions with Denver and Philly, but the talks obviously never made it out of the rumor stage. Expect Griffin to remain with the Clippers.

Charlie Villanueva scored 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting Friday, to go with six boards, three assists, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 23 minutes.

Villanueva got some extra run tonight with the game well out of reach by halftime, and with the Mavs on a back-to-back set, CV could potentially enter the starting lineup on Saturday if Rick Carlisle elects to rest Dirk Nowitzki. If that's the case, Villanueva could be worth a punt play in DFS, although there's no reason to swoop him up in season-long settings.
Feb 6 - 3:00 AM

Justin Anderson actually got into the rotation due to the blowout nature of Friday's game, and produced 13 points and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes of action.

Anderson shot 4-of-7 from the field and also pulled down three boards, but he's a negligible part of the rotation more often than not. We'll need to see him earning consistent minutes before recommending him as an add in any league.
Feb 6 - 2:56 AM

Dirk Nowitzki scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting Friday, with eight rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

Dirk also appeared to suffer a right ankle injury during the game, although he was able to play through it. However, the Mavs are on a back-to-back set, and Dirk hasn't been playing in those lately, so with the ankle tweak we're going to consider him doubtful for Saturday's game in Memphis. If he's out, Charlie Villanueva would likely start with guys like Chandler Parsons, Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea seeing some increased opportunity on offense.

The Kings are weighing the dismissal of coach George Karl, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Well, that didn't take long and it's hard not to think about DeMarcus Cousins' comments from earlier this evening. Cousins said the team losing isn't because of the players and said it's "a bigger issue." There were some pretty heavy rumors of Karl and Cousins having problems back in the summer and it looks like it's back on. The Kings are in Boston on Sunday, so that should be fun with all the Boogie-Boston trade rumors from the summer, as well.
Feb 6 - 2:40 AM

Trey Burke (flu-like symptoms) will not be traveling with the team to Phoenix for Saturday's game.

While Burke could technically catch a later flight to Arizona, it seems much more likely that he'll spend Saturday's game on the sidelines, which would result in heavy minutes for Rodney Hood and Raul Neto. Hood will get an extremely favorable matchup tomorrow, and he'd be someone to target in DFS.
Feb 6 - 2:37 AM

Chandler Parsons only managed to score six points on 3-of-9 shooting during Friday's blowout loss to San Antonio, adding one rebound, one assist, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 26 minutes.

The Mavs trailed by 36 points at the half, which was the largest halftime deficit in franchise history, so it's hard to take away much from this unproductive performance from Parsons. He should be able to bounce-back on Saturday vs. Memphis.
Feb 6 - 2:33 AM

Wesley Matthews couldn't get anything going during Friday's blowout loss to the Spurs, tallying just four points on 2-of-5 shooting with one rebound, two assists, one block and one turnover in 23 minutes.

The Mavs were blown out badly in this one, and the game was essentially over after the first-quarter. Wesley was noticeably upset after the game saying it was the most "embarrassing game" he's ever been a part of "at any level." Matthews has been struggling over the past month, knocking down just 34.5 percent of his shots, and it might not get any better any time soon with Dallas set to play Memphis on Saturday and Utah on Tuesday.
Feb 6 - 2:23 AM

Deron Williams' struggles continued on Friday as he only connected on 3-of-9 shots on his way to eight points, three rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.

Williams has been struggling mightily over the past month, owning meager averages of 11.7 points, 4.6 assists, 1.0 three-pointer and 2.3 turnovers per game on 38.5 percent shooting. Those numbers have him ranking well outside the top 150 in standard leagues, although he still offers too much upside to outright drop. Perhaps he can get things back on track after the All-Star break.
Feb 6 - 2:14 AM

Patty Mills scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting Friday to go with two 3-pointers and four rebounds in 15 minutes of floor time.

Mills could have some more minutes falling his way with Manu Ginobili (testicular surgery) set to spend at least the next month on the sidelines, but he's not much more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.
Feb 6 - 2:05 AM

Kawhi Leonard notched 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting Friday, with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

Kawhi's has been underperforming over the past month, producing just third-round value in standard leagues, so now would be an excellent time to float out some buy-low offers to his frustrated owners. At 24 years old, Kawhi is in zero danger of random rest days down the stretch, and he was fantasy basketball's No. 4 overall option in 9-cat leagues after the break last season. The explosion is coming.
Feb 6 - 1:59 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled during Friday's easy win over the Mavs, tallying 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with 10 boards, two assists, two steals, two blocks and one turnover in 28 minutes.

Aldridge has been playing extremely well since Tim Duncan (knee) went down, producing averages of 20.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and just 1.5 turnovers per game which has been good enough for top-20 value in standard leagues. However, Aldridge has never averaged more than 1.2 swats per game, so now seems like a good sell-high opportunity for a guy that's producing unsustainable numbers.
Feb 6 - 1:47 AM

David West logged a mere 10 minutes in a start at power forward on Friday, tallying just four points, one rebound, one assist and one turnover during his time on the court.

Head coach Gregg Popovich has been using a committee approach to help fill the void with Tim Duncan (knee) on the sidelines, which has essentially resulted in a value killing timeshare for all parties involved. Boris Diaw played 19 minutes off the bench, putting up five points, five boards, four assists and a 3-pointer, while Boban Marjanovic tallied seven points, seven rebounds and one swat during his 17 minutes of action. None of these guys have any standard league appeal.
Feb 6 - 1:38 AM

Rudy Gobert made the Bucks offense look like it belonged in the NCAA during an 84-81 win on Friday, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, one assist, five steals and three blocks in 38 minutes.

His five steals are a career high, he made 6-of-7 from the field and he didn't turn the ball over. The Jazz are winning with defense and coach Quin Snyder is OK with that. "I think we are an offensive juggernaut," Snyder said. "We've scored over 80 for two straight games." As for Gobert, he's inside of the top 15 over his last 10 games and is back to being a fantasy monster.
Feb 6 - 1:34 AM

Tony Parker scored just nine points on 4-of-8 shooting during Friday's blowout victory over the Mavs, with two assists, two boards, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 25 minutes.

Gregg Popovich has made monitoring his 33-year-old point guard's minutes a thing at the mid-way point of the season, and over the past month Parker has produced just 15th round value in 9-cat leagues behind averages of 11.3 points, 4.8 assists and 2.0 turnovers while receiving just 26.4 minutes a night. Parker is a prime candidate for random rest days down the stretch, making him an unattractive asset in most formats.
