Derrick Favors double-doubled with 10 points and 10 rebounds vs. the Thunder on Monday.

This was just his third double-double of his disappointing season. Favors logged 27 minutes and hit 5-fo-12 shots with two steals and two turnovers. As underwhelming as Favors has been, he hasn't seen less than 24 minutes in a game since Jan. 2 and should only trend up after the All-Star break. He's a buy-low option, but not one that comes without risk.
Jan 24 - 1:38 AM

Gordon Hayward scored 17 points in Monday's loss to the Thunder, snapping a six-game winning streak for the Jazz.

"It was a tough game for us," Hayward said. "I felt like they made the plays when they needed to and we didn't. It's a frustrating one, but it's one you have to try and let go and move on." The Jazz are one of the hottest teams in the West right now and they're still not even at full strength with Rodney Hood (knee) out. The Jazz are just one loss behind the fourth-seeded Clippers and have every reason to keep giving Hayward big minutes the rest of the way. He shot 6-of-17 from the field in the loss and added six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two triples.

Alec Burks scored 13 points for the second straight game on Monday vs. the Thunder, shooting 4-of-7 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line with two rebounds and two assists in a season-high 25 minutes

Burks is now in the rotation with Rodney Hood (knee) out and he played 19 minutes in his previous outing. "Being out for so long, it's hard to get back into the rhythm, but I'm getting there. I feel like I'm getting better," Burks said. "I feel more comfortable with my teammates. I'm making progress." Burks took an ill-advised shot in the final seconds of the two-point loss, but the fact that he was even in there suggests that he will be a big part of Utah's plans in the short term. If you have something to cut in a deep league, give Burks a look since the Jazz play three more times this week.
Jan 24 - 1:29 AM

Jerami Grant returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Jazz and scored two points in 19 minutes.

Steven Adams (concussion) returned to the starting lineup and looked healthy in 37 minutes, so Grant's owners should look elsewhere for production. The blocks specialist shot 1-of-3 from the field and added two rebounds, one assist and one block.
Jan 24 - 1:21 AM

Victor Oladipo scored 18 points on an efficient 8-of-11 shooting on Monday vs. the Jazz.

Dipo added four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one triple in 30 minutes, but he said over the weekend that his wrist is still causing him some pain. "Lingering pain and I've fallen on it a few times unluckily," Oladipo said. He added that he's "not worried about it," but he will continue to ice it and receive treatment going forward. If tonight was any indication, Oladipo should be just fine.

Steven Adams (concussion) returned from a two-game absence on Monday vs. the Jazz and scored nine points with six rebounds, one assist and four blocks.

The Thunder didn't waste any time easing him back into action by giving the big man a 37-minute workload. Rudy Gobert usually shuts down opposing centers, so Adams' owners should take this line and run. Adams will be a strong play against a Pelicans team on Wednesday that could be without Anthony Davis (quad).
Jan 24 - 1:14 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 38 points and hit a game-winning mid-range jumper with a couple seconds left in Monday's 97-95 win over the Jazz.

He's an absolute monster. Westbrook recorded his 22nd triple-double of the season with 10 rebounds and 10 assists, adding four steals, one block, three triples and six turnovers. He finished 11-of-29 from the field and 13-of-17 from the line, an incredible feat against one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Per StatMuse, Westbrook now has the most 30-point triple-doubles (21) in the last 30 years over LeBron James (21) and Michael Jordan (16). Not bad for an All-Star reserve...
Jan 24 - 1:10 AM

Stephen Curry scored 20 points with 10 rebounds, eight assists, one block and three triples vs. the Heat on Monday.

He finished 7-of-19 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line with four turnovers in 37 minutes. This was his second 20/10 game of the season and he matched his season high with 10 rebounds. Curry is trending up in the new year and he's averaging 80.5 touches per game with 5.4 seconds per touch in January compared to 76 touches and 4.7 seconds per touch before Jan. 1, and his owners can expect another strong performance in a homecoming game in Charlotte on Wednesday.

Draymond Green struggled vs. the Heat on Monday with seven points on 3-of-8 shooting.

He missed all three of his triples and only hit 1-of-4 from the line, adding seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes. While it will go mostly unnoticed, Green had the best +/- rating of +8 tonight despite the underwhelming line, but expect more from him on Wednesday vs. Charlotte.
Jan 24 - 12:57 AM

Justin Holiday played 32 minutes and hit 4-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, three rebounds, three steals and two blocks in Monday's 109-103 win over the Pacers.

He's coming off the bench, but is making some noise, averaging 10.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers on 53 percent shooting over his last five games. His 32 minutes were easily his most since Dec. 28, so it's possible he's on the verge of getting hot. Just keep an eye on him.
Jan 24 - 12:54 AM

Willy Hernangomez came off the bench to hit 5-of-8 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for 14 points, 10 rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 24 minutes of Monday's win over the Pacers.

He had six points and eight boards on Saturday in 14 minutes, didn't play on Thursday, had a 17 & 11 double-double on Wednesday, and didn't play against the Hawks a week ago. He's as inconsistent as they come, but has been favored over Kyle O'Quinn lately. Just keep an eye on him in case he's about to get hot.
Jan 24 - 12:51 AM

Shaun Livingston (rest) returned to action on Monday vs. the Heat and scored four points with five assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 21 minutes.

Livingston was averaging 17.4 minutes per game prior to Monday, but saw a few extra minutes tonight with Andre Iguodala resting. Livingston won't be a fantasy factor while Stephen Curry is healthy despite this solid line.
Jan 24 - 12:51 AM

Courtney Lee hit 3-of-7 shots, a 3-pointer and 7-of-7 free throws for 14 points, four rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes of Monday's 109-103 win over the Pacers.

He's starting at shooting guard for the Knicks and scored 13 points on Saturday, when he hit three 3-pointers. Maybe he's ready to start scoring 14 points a night, but unless you're simply desperate for 3-pointers, you can probably find a more valuable player off your waiver wire.
Jan 24 - 12:49 AM

Joakim Noah made another start at center on Monday but lasted just 12 minutes to finish with two points, six rebounds and nothing else.

The Knicks are talking about benching Noah and starting Kristaps Porzingis at center, which would obviously hurt Noah's value going forward. Noah had been rebounding at a great rate prior to tonight, but his lack of scoring makes him very tough to start in fantasy (he's totaled 10 points in his last four games). And a move to the bench would make it even tougher, not to mention his constant injury concerns.
Jan 24 - 12:45 AM

Kevin Durant scored 27 points on 12-of-23 shooting in a loss to the Heat on Monday.

The Warriors had their seven-game winning streak snapped by a Dion Waiters 3-pointer in the final seconds after KD tied the game at 102 apiece with a driving slam. Durant only hit 1-of-8 triples tonight, but added six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes. He's still the No. 1 overall player in standard fantasy leagues and we don't see that changing anytime soon.
