Terrence Ross started and hit 8-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 22 points, six rebounds and one assist in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

He's been hit-or-miss all season and Jonathon Simmons has more upside, but Ross deserves some attention. He's averaging 11.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.4 3-pointers on 55 percent shooting over his last five, so he can offer some 12-team help if you need steals and treys.

Lonzo Ball made 4-of-8 from the field for 11 points during a 113-102 loss to the Kings on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He's getting killed on social media for his awful shooting percentages, but he's actually been decent on the road. In his eight road games, he has a sub-par 45.8 TS%, but that plummets to a historically bad 30.6 TS% when he's at Staples Center. He did also miss both of his free throws to drop him to 42.9 percent from the charity stripe on the season -- that's worse than Dwight Howard, Andre Drummond or any free throw percentage qualifier. The good news is he's taking a step in the right direction, but he has a very deep hole to climb out of to be a reliable fantasy asset.

Julius Randle scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 29 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

The Kings were feeding Zach Randolph and that helps explain why Randle saw more run. Coach Luke Walton said he wanted to pick up the pace with Randle against Z-Bo and Brook Lopez got burned in the first quarter. While we did expect Randle to play some more power forward after Larry Nance Jr. (hand) went down, it didn't really happen. In the last 11 games, Randle played just 16 minutes next to Brook Lopez and 243 minutes without him. Randle may not take a hit with Nance back next week.

Brook Lopez scored four points with one rebound and one block in 17 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

The one rebound is rough, and this is his fourth one-board game on the season. Zach Randolph went off early and coach Luke Walton took Lopez out early because of it. Lopez continues to be a victim of game script and pace, especially in losses. When the Lakers win, Lopez has played 26.6 minutes per game, but that drops to 22.0 in losses. Annoying games aside, Lopez has been decent this month with 16.7 points, 5.3 boards and 2.0 blocks in his previous games. He could take a slight hit when Larry Nance Jr. (hand) comes back.

Harrison Barnes hit a 30-foot jumper at the buzzer to win 95-94 at Memphis on Wednesday, finishing with 22 points, nine rebounds, one assist and that 3-pointer.

It's Harry B's first game-winning shot at the buzzer in his career (video in link below). Barnes is starting to trend up as a scorer with more attempts from the line, big minutes and also the Mavs playing in closer games. The Mavs are still dead last in the Western Conference and they'll get the Thunder and Spurs in their next two, so hopefully they can keep it close again after this win and the OT loss to the Celtics on Monday.

Salah Mejri scored one point with five rebounds and one steal in 10 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

No shots from the field and no turnovers, but going 1-of-2 from the line saved him from the 0.0 usage rate. Mejri is basically just a one-category specialist for his blocks, but he's only had one over his last three combined over those 24 minutes. He's really tough to count on in fantasy.
Nov 23 - 1:22 AM

De'Aaron Fox had 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in just 23 minutes during Wednesday's win vs. the Lakers.

Fox hasn't had an eye-opening game recently, but he is getting more consistent as he adjusts to a starting role. Over the past three games he's averaging 12.0 points on 48.3% shooting, 1.3 triples, 3.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 steals. When you pair that immediate production with his upside, he needs to be owned.
Nov 23 - 1:21 AM

George Hill vanished on Wednesday with zero points, steals or blocks in 22 minutes of action vs. the Lakers.

Hill made another start alongside De'Aaron Fox, but he finished with just three rebounds and one assist while missing both of his field goal attempts. He was just starting to regain some trust with five straight double-digit scoring games, and this highlights the inherent risk in relying on him -- Sacramento will continue to give Fox minutes at PG, which leaves Hill battling a thicket of players for a dwindling pool of playing time.
Nov 23 - 1:21 AM

Vince Carter (kidney stones) played nine minutes on Wednesday, finishing with two points, one rebound and one block.

VC wound up missing seven games, but his return doesn't have a clear fantasy impact -- Sacramento's rotations are already chaotic, and Carter hasn't played more than 18 minutes in a game all season. It's nice to see him healthy, though.
Nov 23 - 1:20 AM

Buddy Hield (ankle) returned to action on Wednesday with 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting, one 3-pointer, one rebound and one steal in 15 minutes off the bench.

The Kings will eventually unleash the 23-year-old Hield, who was a reliable fantasy value down the stretch last season, but right now we're seeing too much Garrett Temple (30 minutes) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (27 minutes) to be comfortable playing Hield in typical leagues. That said, don't hesitate to pounce if he strings together a few big games.
Nov 23 - 1:20 AM

Zach Randolph scored a season-high 22 points vs. the Lakers on Wednesday, making 10-of-16 shots with seven rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

The Kings went on a 16-2 run in the first quarter tonight, powered by Z-Bo's 11 points in the frame -- he even beat L.A.'s defense down the court at one point. The veteran tied his season-high with 30 minutes and aside from a few duds he's been good in November, but we still don't trust him in 12-team leagues.
Nov 23 - 1:20 AM

Nerlens Noel scored two points in four minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Hey, at least he didn't play only in garbage time, which has been the case in the last week and change. Salah Mejri has cooled off as far as making an impact goes, but Noel is still behind him for now. Maybe he gets a chance to play at some point, but it's really hard to stash him in 12-team leagues. It'll likely be a by-committee approach at center until late in the season.
Nov 23 - 1:19 AM

Willie Cauley-Stein scored a season-high 26 points on Wednesday, making 10-of-14 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs with six rebounds, two steals and one assist in 28 minutes.

WCS's previous season-high of 22 points came last Friday and he's trending up in a hurry, to the delight of owners who've stuck with him despite the early-season struggles. The Lakers didn't have an answer for him down low tonight, with all of his makes coming in the restricted area, and it was nice to see him attacking that weakness. Cauley-Stein's next dud could be right around the corner, but this is a timely reminder of his upside -- don't hesitate to grab him if you still can.
Nov 23 - 1:19 AM

Bogdan Bogdanovic came through on Wednesday with 14 points, seven assists, two steals and a pair of 3-pointers, making 6-of-9 shots in 27 minutes off the bench.

It was a rare burst of efficiency from Bogdanovic, who shot 50.0 percent in October but was at just 37.3 percent this month. His talent is obvious and he showed nice chemistry with Willie Cauley-Stein, which is worth watching, but he's still more of a stash in the hopes that he breaks out in the new year.
Nov 23 - 1:16 AM

Dirk Nowitzki scored 13 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

In the first quarter, he became the 29th player in NBA history to pull down 11,000 rebounds. Nowitzki's rebounds have slightly trended up with four straight seven-plus board games. His minutes have also increased lately because the Mavs have been able to keep some games close. He's still just clinging to late-round value.
