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.

John Wall led the Wizards to an overtime win in Denver on Sunday, scoring 19 points and dishing out 16 assists, one shy of his career high.

Wall made 8-of-16 shots including one 3-pointer and he was huge down the stretch, scoring or assisting on six of Washington's scoring plays. He added one steal with only two turnovers in tonight's high-scoring affair, and he's overtaken Ty Lawson for the league-lead in assists with 10.1 per game. When you eliminate turnovers from the equation, Wall's fantasy valuation leaps into the top-25.

Ty Lawson went off in his return from a one-game personal absence on Sunday, scoring a game-high 31 points with 12 assists before missing a potentially game-tying jumper in overtime.

Lawson hit 10-of-20 shots and 8-of-8 free throws with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and three steals, perhaps taking his emotions out on the court after being arrested on suspicion of a DUI on Friday. He may eventually face a short suspension from the league, but for now owners can tentatively expect to have him for all four of Denver's games this week.

Jusuf Nurkic racked up four personal fouls in just 19 minutes of action on Sunday, finishing a tough loss to the Wizards with six points, nine boards, two assists and one steal.

Nurkic has a golden opportunity with Timofey Mozgov gone and JaVale McGee (tibia) still inactive, but he can't get out of his own way with the foul trouble. He's still a late-middle round value over the past month, in just 20.2 minutes per game, and simply has too much upside to cut in 12-team leagues.
Jan 25 - 11:00 PM

Wilson Chandler filled up the stat sheet on Sunday with 20 points, four 3-pointers, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and only one turnover in 38 minutes.

Chandler shot 8-of-19 overall and he isn't very efficient (41.3 percent FGs this season), but fantasy owners won't complain with tonight's solid line. The Nuggets are reportedly willing to trade him and they've been linked to the Nets and Brook Lopez, so be mindful that Chandler's value could decrease overnight.

Danilo Gallinari had seven points in 15 minutes off the bench vs. Washington, while chipping in one 3-pointer, one rebound and two assists.

It's nice to see Gallo healthy and productive, but he has a long way to go before regaining the trust of fantasy owners. Leave him on the waiver wire.
Jan 25 - 10:59 PM

Jameer Nelson was predictably quiet with Ty Lawson back in action on Sunday, coming off the bench for nine points, four assists and one steal in 14 minutes.

It was actually a nice game for Nelson, who went 3-of-4 behind the arc, but a backup role behind minute-hog Lawson isn't a recipe for long-term success. Deep-league owners may find Nelson useful, but everyone else should be able to find better free agents.
Jan 25 - 10:58 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 excting 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

Danny Green couldn't break out of his cold spell against the Bucks on Sunday, scoring just three points on 1-of-9 shooting while adding two boards, three assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

He has now failed to score in double digits for the fourth game in a row, and it's obvious that he is losing confidence quickly. Green was in the midst of an incredible season prior to this slump, so his owners should hold onto him in the hope that he turns it around soon.
Jan 25 - 10:37 PM

Kyle Lowry finished Sunday's home win vs. the Pistons with 11 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and only one turnover.

It was a useful if low-key game for fantasy purposes, but Lowry's owners are probably disappointed after being spoiled with his production in DeMar DeRozan's absence. Shot attempts are harder to come by with DeRozan healthy, and the insertion of playmaker Greivis Vasquez (13 points, seven dimes) in the starting lineup is doing Lowry's assists no favors, but he remains a solid No. 1 fantasy PG.
Jan 25 - 10:35 PM

Tiago Splitter shifted to the bench for Sunday's game against the Bucks, scoring eight points with two boards, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes.

Matt Bonner drew the start on Sunday, but this isn't the first time coach Gregg Popovich decided to alter his lineup. Given the constant uncertainty at the center position in San Antonio, neither player is worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 25 - 10:32 PM

The Raptors knocked off the Pistons on Sunday behind Jonas Valanciunas' 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting, 11 rebounds and three blocks.

JV suggested this week that he might be a coach's selection for the All-Star game, which is wishful thinking, but he's still putting together a solid season. The third-year center is averaging a career-high 12.5 points with 8.4 boards and 1.0 blocks, while aiding fantasy owners in FG percentage (55.1) and FT percentage (80.0) percent. It all adds up to steady mid-round value.
Jan 25 - 10:30 PM

DeMar DeRozan snapped a three-game offensive skid with 25 points on Sunday, adding one 3-pointer, six rebounds, four assists and two steals without any turnovers in 35 minutes.

The 25 points tied his season high, and they're a welcome sight after his recent three-game stretch of 4.7 points on 17.7 percent shooting. The Raptors have righted their ship with three wins in the past four games but they still have to shore up their defense, which is allowing 100.6 points per game (20th most in the league).
Jan 25 - 10:27 PM

Matt Bonner replaced Tiago Splitter in the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Bucks, but played just 16 minutes and finished with five points, one board, one assist and one 3-pointer.

The lineup change isn't permanent by any means, and it's well known that coach Gregg Popovich constantly tweaks his rotations depending on the matchup. Even if Bonner remains in the starting unit for another game or two, it's obvious that he is not a reliable asset in almost any league.
