Alex Len returned to action on Saturday December 16.

Dec 17 - 3:46 AM

Eric Gordon finished with 16 points across 30 minutes off the bench Saturday against the visiting Bucks.

Gordon hit 5-of-10 from the field, including 1-of-5 from behind the arc, while adding 5-of-6 from the charity stripe. He also build a picket fence across the stat sheet with one rebound, one assist and one steal. Gordon is working on a 12-game streak with at least one 3-pointer dating back to Nov. 14. That's his biggest contribution to fantasy owners.
Dec 17 - 1:50 AM

Chris Paul went for 25 points, six assists and five rebounds across 36 minutes in Saturday's win against the Bucks.

CP3 was called "Superman" by Mark D'Antoni for his stellar work in the third quarter, in particular, as the Rockets have now won 13 consecutive contests. Paul and James Harden more than made up for the absence of Clint Capela (heel), and the fact the team didn't play at its best for big stretches of the victory.
Dec 17 - 1:46 AM

James Harden (knee) finished with 31 points across 39 minutes in Saturday's game against the Bucks, hitting 8-of-21 from the field with 4-of-10 coming from behind the 3-point arc.

Harden was fighting a very sore knee, and he was reportedly "very close" to sitting. The fact Clint Capela (heel) was sidelined likely spurred Harden on so the team didn't have to play without two key starters. The Rockets have three games in the upcoming week, and no back-to-back situations, so that's a good thing. Still, if Harden is forced to the sidelines for a game, you'll know why.
Dec 17 - 1:41 AM

Nene Hilario (rest) was active for Saturday's game against the Bucks, finishing with 16 points off the bench.

Originally it appeared Nene was going to get a rest, but instead he was active and very effective. He was needed with Clint Capela (heel) sidelined by a heel issue. Nene hit 7-of-9 from the field, and he added four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot. He'll likely get a rest during the upcoming week once Capela is healthy enough to return.
Dec 17 - 1:37 AM

Ryan Anderson finished scoreless across 23 minutes in Saturday's 115-111 loss against the Bucks.

Anderson was working against John Henson and didn't fare very well, going 0-of-4 from the field (all from long distance), while adding four rebounds, an assist, a steal and two blocked shots. It was Nene Hilario who was way more effective off the bench with Clint Capela (heel) sidelined, stepping up with 16 points in just 20 minutes.
Dec 17 - 1:35 AM

P.J. Tucker finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds in Saturday's start against Milwaukee.

Tucker was plugged into the starting five with Clint Capela (heel) sidelined. Tucker hit 2-of-5 from the field, 1-of-2 from long distance and he was a perfect 5-of-5 from the free-throw line while adding two steals and an assist across 38 minutes. He did a nice job with the double-double, and the fact he was seeing a faceful of Giannis Antetokounmpo for most of the evening.
Dec 17 - 1:33 AM

Coach Jeff Hornacek said Kristaps Porzingis (knee) "just wasn't feeling exactly right on some of his moves" on his pre-game work on Saturday before being ruled out.

"After talking with the doctors, we just felt that we'll keep him out," Hornacek said. "They'll continue to work on it. He felt better, he seemed like he was almost ready to go today. So hopefully he progresses in the next day and a half." The Knicks certainly will be cautious with Porzingis and for now he's probably looking at another game-time call against the Hornets on Monday. Michael Beasley will be ready.

Eric Bledsoe finished with 19 points in Saturday's 115-111 road loss against the Rockets.

Bledsoe hit 7-of-18 from the floor, but he was a dismal 1-of-7 from behind the 3-point line. He isn't the big man on campus like he was in Phoenix, and it's showing over the past three games as he is averaging just 15.0 points per game while his rebounds and assists have also been down in December. He is still a must-start, but co-existing with Giannis Antetokounmpo isn't easy.
Dec 17 - 1:24 AM

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with a team-high 28 points across 42 minutes in Saturday's road loss against the Rockets.

Win or lose, Antetokounmpo is always productive. He also chipped in with nine rebounds, five assists and four steals while hitting 10-of-22 from the field. The Greek Freak has dropped 20 or more points in 19 consecutive outings since a rare egg laying in Charlotte back on Nov. 1. He'll look to keep it rolling Tuesday against LeBron James and the visiting Cavaliers.
Dec 17 - 1:16 AM

Malcolm Brogdon dropped in 20 points off the bench in Saturday's 115-111 loss in Houston.

Brogdon was a very impressive 7-of-12 from the field while knocking down 3-of-5 from behind the 3-point line. He also hit 3-of-3 from the free-throw stripe while chipping in with four rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and a steal. Brogdon will have company in the backcourt, as the team plans to sign Sean Kilpatrick. It is going to be an awfully crowded backcourt once Matthew Dellavedova (knee) and Tony Snell (knee) can return, and that's not good for Brogdon's fantasy outlook.
Dec 17 - 1:07 AM

Khris Middleton finished with 23 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals over 34 minutes in Saturday's 115-111 loss in Houston.

Middleton was 8-of-17 from the field, including 3-of-9 from behind the 3-point line, while connecting on 4-of-4 from the free-throw stripe. He is enjoying his most productive month of the season in terms of offense, averaging 22.9 points per game through eight outings in December. Middleton continues to posted top-35 production in standard leagues.
Dec 17 - 1:03 AM

John Henson finished with five points and eight rebounds over 32 minutes in Saturday's loss in Houston.

Henson also chipped in with an assist and a blocked shot, but he turned it over twice and he had four personal fouls which seemed to affect his aggressiveness. The poor scoring total snapped a three-game streak with double-digit points, his longest such stretch of the season. He continues to be a decent source of blocked shots and rebounds, but don't expect much more.
