Pat Beverley said he had some treatment on his left ankle.

This is the ankle that has bothered him for a good chunk of this season. He tweaked his ankle and it doesn't sound serious. Beverley said he will see how he feels for the Skills Competition in Toronto.

Jason Terry was reportedly heard walking through the media room on his way to the locker room saying the Rockets lacked chemistry.

"No chemistry with that group. [expletive] horrible," Terry reportedly said. The Rockets dropped out of the top eight in the Western Conference and this break is not going to be fun. It's worth noting this report was also confirmed from other reporters.

Gerald Henderson had 13 points (3-of-10 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes on Wednesday, marking his sixth straight game with double-digit points.

Henderson is healthy and productive, with an expiring $6 million contract, so the veteran may draw some trade interest as the deadline approaches. He doesn't typically contribute much beyond scoring and solid FT percentages, so it's hard to envision Henderson as a fantasy asset no matter where he finishes the season.

Noah Vonleh (ankle) was available to play on Wednesday but he did not leave the Blazers' bench.

Vonleh missed the past three games due to injury but he was apparently a DNP-CD tonight. Terry Stotts may simply have been playing it safe with Vonleh, to avoid a setback with the All-Star break looming, but either way he belongs on the waiver wire. In 39 starts this season, Vonleh has averaged just 4.1 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.

Meyers Leonard shifted to the bench on Wednesday, where he contributed 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, with eight rebounds and one block in 23 minutes.

Leonard earned a handful of starts during Noah Vonleh's absence with an ankle injury, but it was Moe Harkless taking the starting PF job tonight. This is a good indication of Leonard's upside as a source of scoring, 3-pointers and rebounds, but it's rarely been on display this season -- he should be unowned outside of deep leagues.

C.J. McCollum had a quiet game vs. Houston on Wednesday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting with two 3-pointers, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 27 minutes.

He sat out 7:28 during the fourth quarter, which is unusual, as Terry Stotts rolled with Gerald Henderson (32 minutes) and Allen Crabbe (30 minutes) for long stretches tonight. The front-runner for Most Improved Player has fallen below 30 minutes just three times all season, and this is obviously nothing to worry about.
Feb 11 - 1:54 AM

Mason Plumlee was a non-factor vs. the Rockets, posting eight points, four rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 16 foul-plagued minutes.

Plumlee struggled vs. Dwight Howard defensively and once again found himself in foul trouble, so Terry Stotts quickly turned to Ed Davis (13 rebounds in 21 minutes). Plumlee didn't even play in the final 20 minutes tonight, but that's unlikely to become a trend -- this dud doesn't alter his rest-of-season outlook.
Feb 11 - 1:53 AM

Moe Harkless racked up a season-high 19 points with 13 rebounds as a starter on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-11 shots with one 3-pointer, one assist and two steals in 28 minutes of action.

The Blazers improved their record to .500 with the victory, bumping the Rockets from the No. 8 seed in the process, and Harkless made a strong case to keep the PF job ahead of Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh. He's playing well and is worth keeping an eye on once Portland returns to action, but owners in standard leagues shouldn't pick him up during the break.
Feb 11 - 1:46 AM

James Harden scored 34 points during a 116-103 loss to the Blazers on Wednesday with nine rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, eight turnovers and three 3-pointers.

The stat line was huge, but Harden was roasted on defense. Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said the Rockets are "broken" and it's "that simple." Bickerstaff also added he doesn't know if the roster will change at the deadline. Whatever the case, Harden will be a stat-stuffing machine in fantasy.
Feb 11 - 1:43 AM

Dwight Howard scored 28 points with 13 rebounds, two assists and one block in 35 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He was very good against the sub-par bigs on the Blazers, but the Rockets were torched on defense. Howard looks healthy right now and should have a nice finish for his fantasy owners. He'll obviously have some bad free-throw woes.
Feb 11 - 1:40 AM

Clint Capela scored one point with 10 rebounds in 17 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He actually played some minutes at power forward, but that might not continue based on coach J.B. Bickerstaff calling his team "broken" after the game. Capela can stay on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 11 - 1:37 AM

Andrew Bogut followed up Tuesday's big game with four points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 23 minutes vs. the Suns.

Festus Ezeli's absence due to left knee surgery has put a greater burden on Bogut, who is rising to the challenge -- he's averaging 8.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 3.7 blocks in the Warriors' past three games. Low playing time leads to occasional duds for Bogut, but he's worth a look if you need help with boards, blocks and FG percentage.
Feb 11 - 1:36 AM

Draymond Green had an unusually quiet night on Wednesday, posting nine points, six rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one steal in 28 minutes vs. the Suns.

The Warriors took a 16-point lead into the fourth quarter which enabled them to rest their starters, hence the low playing time. Green continues to return first-round value in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues, despite the profusion of talent on the Warriors' roster -- since Jan. 1, Draymond and Nerlens Noel are the only top-20 values with a usage rate below 20 percent.
Feb 11 - 1:35 AM

Brandon Knight (groin) didn't play on Wednesday, as expected.

Knight was never likely to return before the All-Star break, and now the question shifts to his post-break status -- the Suns have been coy about a return date and they may be inclined to shut him down while developing Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker. We should finally get an update during the break, so stay tuned.
Feb 11 - 1:33 AM

Stephen Curry scored 26 points during a 112-104 win in Phoenix on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers.

The Warriors have the best record of all time before the break at 48-4 and they're also 72-10 in their last 82 games counting last year. Curry's output from deep is unbelievable and his 245 treys are just 41 shy of his record last year. Based on his current pace, Curry will break his record on Mar. 6 against the Lakers.
