Jordan Hamilton will reportedly return to the D-League after the All-Star break.

He was playing overseas, but it sounds like he's going to try to play his way back into the NBA via the D-League. Hamilton has played a total of 140 NBA games over the course of his four-year career, but he’s never been a worthwhile asset in fantasy hoops.

Blake Griffin (hand) will not be traded this season, according to NBA insider Ken Berger of CBS Sports.

There has been speculation that the Clippers might look to move Griffin after his altercation with a team staffer, but Berger reports that the team isn't going to blow things up and deal the big man this season. It looks like Griffin will at least finish the 2015-16 season with the Clips, but he's targeting a mid-March return and is a tough hold for fantasy owners without an IR spot.

Lance Stephenson logged 24 minutes on Wednesday, his highest playing time since Dec. 2, finishing a tough road loss with 12 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one steal.

Born Ready made 4-of-5 shots with only one turnover, rounding out an unusually efficient game. He was baited into a technical foul by Jae Crowder at one point, which got a nice chuckle from the Celtics' bench, and Boston wound up getting the last laugh with a 17-12 edge in overtime. Stephenson is playing more with Austin Rivers (hand) out of commission, but he's still not a fantasy asset.

J.J. Redick shook off a minor ankle injury to finish Wednesday's overtime defeat with 27 points, two 3-pointers and three rebounds, making 9-of-14 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs in 38 minutes of action.

Redick's efficiency is remarkable and he's anchoring his fantasy value with lights-out shooting beyond the arc -- he's averaging 2.8 triples per game since Jan. 1, which ranks eighth during that span behind J.R. Smith, Paul George, Kyle Lowry, James Harden, Damian Lillard and the Splash Brothers. His usage may take a slight hit when Blake Griffin gets back on the court, but that's the only knock on his rest-of-season outlook.
Feb 11 - 12:10 AM

Wes Johnson chipped in seven points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in just 22 minutes of action vs. Boston on Wednesday.

Johnson played 42 minutes with Paul Pierce resting on Monday, and Doc Rivers continues to rely on him as a key rotation player. Tonight's line doesn't jump out, but Johnson's ability to chip in 3-pointers, blocks and steals makes him a viable option until Blake Griffin gets back on the court.
Feb 11 - 12:09 AM

Paul Pierce played 22 minutes vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, finishing with six points on a pair of 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and one block.

Pierce admitted that this might have been his final game in Boston, and the home crowd let him feel the love with a sustained ovation. If it was the Truth's final game at the TD Garden, he'll finish with a lofty spot in franchise history -- he's fourth in games played, third in minutes, second in points, first in free throws made, six in assists, seventh in rebounds, fourth in blocks, first in steals, and first in 3-pointers.
Feb 11 - 12:08 AM

Chris Paul tied his season high with 35 points vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, adding 13 assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block in an OT loss in Boston.

The Clippers lost for only the third time in their past 15 road games, an incredible feat given the injuries they've endured. CP3 appeared to have a minor hand injury but he played through it and should have plenty of time to recuperate during the much-needed All-Star break -- it obviously didn't affect him tonight, as he drained 13-of-21 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs with three triples.
Feb 11 - 12:07 AM

J.J. Redick went to the locker room in the third quarter against the Celtics and is available to return.

It is a right ankle issue, which was a problem for Redick back in January. If he can't return, that means more minutes for Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford.
Feb 10 - 9:20 PM

Paul Pierce (rest) will return against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Of course he's playing in TD Garden after sitting out on Monday. PIerce will take a couple minutes away from Lance Stephenson, Luc Mbah a Moute and Wes Johnson. The Truth doesn't have much fantasy value.
Feb 10 - 6:15 PM

Doc Rivers said that he's optimistic Austin Rivers will be able to return to the court in four weeks because his fractured left hand did not require surgery.

Jamal Crawford will be the primary beneficiary with Rivers on the shelf for at least the next four weeks, with Pablo Prigioni and Lance Stephenson having the opportunity for some extended run. Rivers is nothing more than a backup with the Clippers, and he's not done enough statistically this season to warrant ownership in any league.

The Clippers have suspended Blake Griffin (hand) for four games without pay for punching the team's assistant equipment manager, Mathias Testi.

That means that Blake will be required to miss four games once he's cleared to return to the court, which will be around mid-March, giving him a maximum of 17 games played in an ideal scenario. As previously stated, those fighting for a playoff spot in leagues without an IR-slot need to consider cutting Griffin. Wes Johnson has been putting up mid-round value in Blake's absence, with averages of 9.5 points, 2.0 three-pointers, 2.1 steals and 1.1 blocks per game, so he's worth a look in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 4:14 PM

DeAndre Jordan scored 12 points during a 98-92 overtime win over the 76ers on Monday, adding 21 boards, one assist and three blocks in 43 minutes.

It's his fourth 20-board game of the year and he has a whopping 17.0 boards per game in his last five. Jordan also added averages of 13.6 points, 1.8 assists, 3.2 blocks and 0.8 steals. He' a monster as long as you don't care about free throw shooting.
Feb 8 - 11:28 PM

Wes Johnson started in place of Paul Pierce (rest) on Monday with seven points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer on 3-of-13 from the field in 42 minutes against the 76ers.

He did not shoot the ball well, but the across-the-board output has been the key for Johnson. In his last five, he averaged 9.0 points, 5.2 boards, 1.4 blocks, 1.6 steals and 2.0 treys. He's basically been a better version of Danny Green right now and should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 8 - 11:25 PM

Jamal Crawford scored 23 points with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

He is going to get some huge minutes with Austin Rivers (hand) out of the lineup. Crawford is still better suited for points leagues, but feel free to pick him up if you need some scoring and treys.
Feb 8 - 11:19 PM

Wes Johnson will start against the 76ers on Monday in place of Paul Pierce (rest).

He has actually played really well and is putting up early-round value in the last month or so. Johnson should be owned in standard leagues with some added value for tonight.
