Brook Lopez scored four points with five rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 16 minutes during a 99-86 win over the Pacers on Friday.

Make it five straight games under 20 minutes and just one game over 20 this entire month. In that five-game run, Lopez averaged just 5.2 points, 2.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 treys in 17.4 minutes. He still has some value because of his blocks, but he's been a super bust in fantasy.

Tyler Ennis scored seven points with one rebound, five assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

He was outplayed by Alex Caruso for the second straight night, so maybe coach Luke Walton will make a move there. Either way, you probably shouldn't be counting on Ennis even with Lonzo Ball (knee) needing to go through a practice before he's suiting up for games.
Jan 20 - 2:08 AM

Corey Brewer finished with four points and seven assists over 29 minutes in Friday's 99-86 win against Indiana.

Brewer hit just 2-of-6 from the field, including 0-of-2 from behind the 3-point line, while adding two steals. He is averaging 20.3 minutes per game over his past three outings, but he is posting just 3.7 points, 4.0 rebound and 1.3 steals per game during the span. Despite the fact he was in the starting five on Friday, he is only a low-end asset in the deepest of fantasy leagues while starting for Brandon Ingram (ankle). He can be left to the waiver wire in most formats.
Jan 20 - 2:07 AM

Josh Hart scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

His position flexibility has been very helpful lately with Hart getting 30.3 minutes per game over his last three. Hart is still not much of a scorer and his defensive stats have dropped off, so he'll probably need either Brandon Ingram or Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to miss Sunday to be worthy of a stream or DFS play.
Jan 20 - 2:05 AM

Larry Nance (hip) finished a perfect 5-of-5 from the field across 28 minutes off the bench Friday against the Pacers, posting 10 points.

Nancne also chipped in with 11 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocked shots to quell the fears of his fantasy owners. He was rather limited in a lopsided loss on Wednesday, but he played with no restrictions and a lot of production in this one. It appears safe to trust him in all fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams after this solid performance, although his fantasy appeal remains rather limited as long as Kyle Kuzma, Brook Lopez and Julius Randle are also healthy and sucking up frontcourt minutes.
Jan 20 - 2:04 AM

Alex Caruso scored five points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

The Lakers won't be in a rush to bring back some of their injured starters, so Caruso could see decent minutes on Sunday against the Knicks. If Lonzo Ball, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Brandon Ingram are all out, you could do worse for a DFS super punt or a streamer.
Jan 20 - 2:03 AM

Kyle Kuzma (hand) finished with 13 points in Friday's 99-86 victory against the visiting Pacers.

Kuzma suffered a sprained joint in his hand in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game, but he was able to tough it out. He was just 5-of-15 from the floor, including 3-of-9 from behind the 3-point line, while going 0-of-3 from the free-throw stripe. He did chip in with five rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot over 32 minutes to offset the ugly shooting night.
Jan 20 - 1:59 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. lit up the Jazz during a 117-115 win on Friday, making 11-of-17 from the field for 31 points with five rebounds, three assists and six 3-pointers in just 27 minutes.

Yeah, he got a big contract this summer, but Hardaway Jr. has performed while healthy. THJ did miss two clutch free throws with 33 seconds left in the fourth, but did ice the game with two free throw makes with nine second left. The Knicks will get another back-to-back set on Jan. 25-26 and another on the 30th and 31st, so his owners will have to make sure he's good for those. He needs to be owned in all leagues regardless.
Jan 20 - 1:59 AM

Julius Randle (finger) was able to start Friday's 99-86 victory against the Pacers, finishing with 14 points.

Randle hit 7-of-12 from the field while adding four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot over his 20 minutes. He is playing with a jammed right ring finger and fracture, but the ailment didn't seem to affect his shot in the win. If you were hesitant to use him in your fantasy lineup because of the injury, fear not. He looks like he'll be just fine playing through the situation.
Jan 20 - 1:57 AM

Kristaps Porzingis scored 18 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

The blocks stood out, which is hardly a surprise for the NBA's top shot blocker this season. As for his scoring, Porzingis has seen a downward trend in points per game for every month so far this season. He's struggled more on two-point shots lately, especially in the paint at just 26-of-64 in January (40.6 percent). That's actually worse than his above-the-break 3-pointers percentage at 42.2 percent. No need to worry here, of course.
Jan 20 - 1:55 AM

Enes Kanter made 5-of-13 from the field 12 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 26 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

While he didn't play well on offense, Kanter is probably pleased to get the win in Utah. A few years ago, he asked for a trade and you might remember how Kanter said the thing he missed the most about Utah was the view of the mountains. Kanter seems to be back in the good graces of coach Jeff Hornacek with this game and a 20-point outing on Wednesday following a nine-minute game on Monday. He's been a top-50 player this season, so his owners will be rooting for the Knicks to win more games.
Jan 20 - 1:46 AM

Courtney Lee scored 18 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

He made all four from the line to get him to 50 straight makes, which is already a franchise record and is just three shy of Stephen Curry's 53 for the most this season. Lee also played really well on defense and his playing time isn't going anywhere. He's been a draft-day steal as he continues to flirt with top-50 value in standard leagues. Although, he is a bit of a sell-high player because he's basically topping out on potential.
Jan 20 - 1:42 AM

Jordan Clarkson finished with a season-high 33 points, seven assists and seven rebounds in Friday's 99-86 win against the Pacers.

Clarkson finished 14-of-19 from the field, including 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. It Clarkson's fifth-career 30-point game, and his first of the season. The Lakers needed every but of it, as they had a dismal 2-of-14 night from the free-throw stripe. It was the worst percentage from the stripe by a winning NBA team since 1963. Five players took at least one free throw without a make, and only Clarkson was 2-of-3 to hit.
Jan 20 - 1:41 AM

Lance Thomas moved to the bench on Friday with seven points in seven minutes against the Jazz.

There's a decent chance he's a DNP-CD his next time out. Thomas wasn't really worth owning even when he was starting.
Jan 20 - 1:39 AM

Frank Ntilikina did not score with two turnovers in five minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

Trey Burke took his minutes tonight and Ntilikina has lost a lot of his short-term momentum. He'll get some run later in the year, but the French rookie is still more of a stash than anything else.
