Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry, Kyle Korver, Wes Matthews and J.J. Redick are five of the six participants in the 3-point contest during All Star Weekend.

We chose to give Klay the blurb because of his historic night but this is as loaded of a field as we've seen in years. Who will the mystery sixth person be? We're hoping for Kendrick Perkins, but we'll settle for Big Baby.

Festus Ezeli (ankle) went through a contact practice on Monday.

He is doing 3-on-3 right now and is getting closer to a return. Ezeli won't see much action while Andrew Bogut is healthy and he's not going to get more than 20 minutes even when Bogut can go.

The Mavericks are reportedly "confident" that they'll eventually sign 36-year-old free agent Jermaine O'Neal.

Dallas hopes to sign O'Neal by the All-Star break, according to ESPN.com, and the team is "inching closer to [an] eventual signing." J.O. has suddenly become a coveted asset, as he's also drawn interest from the Cavaliers, Warriors, Blazers and Clippers. His ailing knees won't allow him to play heavy minutes and his eventual whereabouts aren't likely to cause more than a ripple in fantasy leagues.

Andrew Bogut played 28 minutes in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 13 points with 13 boards, four assists, one steal and one block.

It was a little surprising to see him play 28 minutes, but his owners won't be complaining with this line. Bogut is still worth owning even if he only sees around 25 minutes per game going forward, but his owners will always have to worry about precautionary DNPs, especially with the Warriors virtually locked into a top seed in the Western Conference.
Jan 25 - 11:21 PM

Andre Iguodala returned to action on Sunday vs. the Celtics, finishing with eight points, three boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

He sat out for Friday's game in order to get some extra rest, so he should be fine moving forward. However, his role has diminished rapidly since last season, and there are simply not enough minutes to go around for Iguodala to make an impact in most leagues. Owners in standard leagues can safely leave him on the wire until further notice.
Jan 25 - 11:11 PM

Draymond Green scored 14 points with nine boards against the Celtics on Sunday, adding two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He has easily been one of the most improved players in the NBA this season, and it's obvious that coach Steve Kerr admires his playing style. Green is in line for some serious money this summer, and there is no reason to think that he will slow down anytime soon. Green should be a top-30 asset the rest of the way.
Jan 25 - 11:05 PM

Klay Thompson scored 31 points to lead the Warriors in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, adding two boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

It's incredible to think that Thompson was able to score 37 points in a quarter during Friday's game over the Kings, so his owners might be starting to feel a little greedy and are probably yawning at this stat line. It's going to be interesting to see who ends up starting in the All-Star game in place of Kobe Bryant (shoulder), as James Harden and Klay Thompson are locked in an exciting battle to take home the honors. Keep Thompson active in your lineup and enjoy the show.
Jan 25 - 10:55 PM

Stephen Curry dropped 21 points on 6-of-16 shooting in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, adding 11 assists, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

The Warriors have now won 19 straight games at home which is easily a franchise record, and Curry has been one of the main reasons why they have had so much success. Curry will likely remain a top-3 fantasy asset the rest of the way, and his hunt for the MVP award should only motivate him even more.
Jan 25 - 10:47 PM

Andre Iguodola is active for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

Coach Steve Kerr opted to give the veteran some rest on Friday against the Kings, but Iguodola is all set to resume his normal role off the bench for the Warriors. With season averages of just 6.9 points, 3.2 boards and 3 assists per game, owners in standard leagues can do better.
Jan 25 - 7:26 PM

Marreese Speights scored 19 points off the bench in the Warriors' 126-101 win over the Kings on Friday, hitting 8-of-13 shots with six rebounds and one block in 21 minutes.

Speights is a solid late-round value in 9-cat leagues this season, but in 8-cat formats he's hovering at the bottom of the top-150. Still, owners know what they're going to get with him on most nights and that makes him a serviceable low-end big man in 12-team formats.
Jan 24 - 5:04 AM

Klay Thompson set an NBA record with 37 points in the third quarter of Friday's win over the Kings, finishing with an NBA season-high tying 52 points on 16-of-25 shooting, two rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks.

Thompson hit 11 3-pointers on 15 attempts and 9-of-10 from the line, setting a slew of records in the process. He did not miss on 13 field goal attempts in the third quarter with nine of them coming from beyond the arc, with each one setting the wild Oracle crowd into a deeper euphoric frenzy. It was the most points scored in a quarter in NBA history, and you might remember where you were five years down the road the next time somebody threatens it. And yes, it's the stat line of the year so far.
Jan 24 - 1:08 AM

Andre Iguodala will not play against the Kings on Friday.

He'll rest tonight and the Warriors are not even on a back-to-back set. Iguodala rested on Jan. 16 and Harrison Barnes played 40 minutes. Expect to see a little more Leandro Barbosa, Justin Holiday and Shaun Livingston.
Jan 23 - 9:37 PM

Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol were voted in as the starters for the Western Conference All-Star Team.

Curry was the top vote getter and he deserves it with his team holding the best record in the NBA. Kobe Bryant is likely going to miss the All-Star game with his rotator cuff tear, so James Harden or Klay Thompson will likely replace him.
Jan 22 - 7:22 PM

Marreese Speights was headed for a disastrous line on Wednesday, but got hot in the final minutes and salvaged a line of nine points, two rebounds, a block and a rare 3-pointer in just eight minutes.

He got hot in garbage time and the desperation 3-pointer was the icing on the cake. The Warriors need Speights down the stretch in order to keep Andrew Bogut healthy and rested, and Speights was just getting a rest of his own tonight. He's not a must-own or must-start player, but he's probably worth keeping around with Bogut's health always in question, as well as the Warriors' strong weekly schedule the rest of the way.
Jan 22 - 1:59 AM

David Lee hit 4-of-9 shots for nine points, 10 rebounds, three steals and a block in Wednesday's easy win over the Rockets.

He got most of his numbers in garbage time, when Draymond Green was on the bench with a huge Warriors lead. The Rockets made a comeback, but never threatened to win the game, and the simple truth is that Lee isn't really worth owning in most leagues. Having said that, congratulations are in order for his 10,000th point tonight.
