Spencer Hawes (knee) downplayed the seriousness of his injury to his left knee.

There had been rumors of a more serious nature to Hawes' injury as he's still without a timetable, but Hawes downplayed those reports are greatly exaggerated. "I'm not out for the season," he told reporters on Wednesday. While Hawes may not be out for the season, he's not going to help fantasy owners much and can safely be left on the waiver wire.

Jamal Crawford hit 4-of-7 shots for 10 points, a steal and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes on Wednesday.

Crawford's not nearly as reliable as he was a year ago and the strong play of J.J. Redick is a big reason why. Redick has been playing very well as the starter and had 16 points and three more 3-pointers tonight. And as long as he's playing so well, it's going to be tough for Crawford to put up big numbers on a nightly basis.
Dec 18 - 2:56 AM

Chris Paul hit 7-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 20 points, six rebounds, nine assists and five steals in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

The Pacers don't have much at point guard and CP3 had his way with them tonight. The five steals were the icing on the cake and it's been nice to see Paul roaming the court injury free this season.
Dec 18 - 2:54 AM

DeAndre Jordan abused Roy Hibbert for 15 points, 23 rebounds and two blocks on 4-of-8 shooting on Wednesday.

He hit just 7-of-15 shooting, but you don't care about his free throw percentage if you own him, as his struggles from the line are not a surprise, nor is he going to improve from there any time soon. DJ's line will be overshadowed by what Andre Drummond did tonight (19 points, 24 rebounds, four steals, three blocks), but Jordan's line was certainly noteworthy. Make a note to play opposing centers against Hibbert and the Pacers going forward.
Dec 18 - 2:52 AM

Matt Barnes hit just 1-of-3 shots for three points, two rebounds, four assists and a block in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

He came in sort of hot, but never got it going tonight. He's been playing much better over the last two weeks, so we fully expect him to bounce back in his next game.
Dec 18 - 2:49 AM

Blake Griffin hit 11-of-27 shots for 31 points, 16 rebounds, five assists and a steal in Wednesday's win.

His field goal percentage wasn't good, but he did hit 9-of-13 free throws and had a big line. His free throw shooting has greatly improved, and his fantasy value as followed as a result. Congratulations if you drafted him this year.
Dec 18 - 2:48 AM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He is without a timetable and after suffering some bruising to his knee. Hawes can be cut in most formats.
Dec 17 - 8:59 PM

The Kings have reportedly reached out to Vinny Del Negro regarding their current head coaching vacancy.

This is an interesting development, and we'll give any updates as they become available. For now, Tyrone Corbin will run things under the interim label, and it'll be very interesting to see how the rotations develop in Sacramento with a new coach at the helm.
Dec 16 - 7:12 PM

Jordan Farmar (back) scored 15 points in 23 minutes to go along with one rebound, five assists, one block, and three 3-pointers in Monday's win over Detroit.

"It was great," Chris Paul said of Farmar. "We are all a new team and everybody has been trying to find themselves. Jordan has been trying to pick his spots. Tonight, he just played a lot freer. He was aggressive and fun to watch." Farmar's 23 minutes on Monday marked his season-high, so he's still much more of a deep league fantasy option as Paul's backup.
Dec 16 - 11:52 AM

Blake Griffin scored 18 points on 7-of-16 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block in Monday's blowout win over the Pistons.

Griffin has rehabilitated his season-long value into the top 50-60 range and he's been a solid top-30 play over the last two weeks. It wouldn't be surprising if he continues along that trajectory.
Dec 16 - 3:00 AM

Matt Barnes scored 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting (including three triples) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal over 24 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Pistons.

Barnes is on a roll with top-50 value over the last two weeks, averaging 14.5 points with 2.2 treys, 1.7 combined steals and blocks, 53.2 percent field goal shooting and 88.9 percent shooting from the line. Pick him up in all standard formats and hope he doesn't faceplant.
Dec 16 - 2:56 AM

Jamal Crawford missed all six of his field goal attempts in Monday's blowout win, but did manage to score five points on free throws with two boards, seven assists and a steal in 27 minutes.

Crawford has fluid in the bursa sac of his right elbow but it reportedly isn't serious, and we'll take that at face value unless this becomes a trend. He's a must-own player in all formats.
Dec 16 - 2:53 AM

Reggie Bullock (ankle) returned to action on Monday in a two-minute effort.

Bullock hasn't done anything to warrant attention in fantasy leagues.
Dec 16 - 2:28 AM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Monday against the Pistons.

Coach Doc Rivers said he did not know when Hawes would make it back. Hawes is just a backup to DeAndre Jordan with the occasional minutes at power forward, so his owners shouldn't be too attached to him.
Dec 15 - 9:59 PM

Spencer Hawes had an MRI on Saturday and it revealed no structural damage.

This is great news for the Clippers and coach Doc Rivers even said that Hawes could have played on Saturday if he needed him too. However, the Clippers are going to be cautious with him and they have not yet provided a timetable for his return. "I think it's still early," Hawes said. "We want to figure out exactly what the issue is and try to go forward from there." This is something that we will monitor very closely, and we will provide an update to his status as needed. If he misses any more time, Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will receive a slight boost.
