Carmelo Anthony made just 1-of-11 from the field for two points with five rebounds, and one turnover in 20 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

Technically, none of his shots went in because his one made field goal came off a Nerlens Noel goaltend call. Anthony has fallen off in a big way with a 3-of-9 coming on Monday, and in his last three games combined he has registered just one assist, no steals, and no blocks. Eric Gordon also returning soon would cut into his scoring chances. His upside will be capped in standard leagues and the Rockets poor play lately could be a bad sign, too.

Rudy Gay (wrist) will start on Wednesday against the Mavs.

He's back after 10 days on the sidelines from a nagging wrist injury. It looked like Gay was able to play through his wrist injury back on Jan. 5, so the Spurs may have been cautious. His return means fewer minutes for Marco Belinelli, Patty Mills, Davis Bertans and Jakob Poeltl. Gay should be owned in all leagues.

Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb, left knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

MRIs came back negative on Carter Jr.'s thumb and knee, and while he'll miss Thursday's game, he'll be re-evaluated on Friday and will be listed as day-to-day moving forward. It wouldn't be shocking to see him spend at least a few games on the sidelines, and while he's out we could see Bobby Portis move into the starting lineup, with more minutes falling to Robin Lopez, Cristiano Felicio and Jabari Parker.

Dennis Smith Jr. (illness) is out Wednesday against the Spurs.

He is not going to be at the arena for this game after a report came out that he was out at lunch earlier today. Coach Rick Carlisle declined to comment about the trade rumors or if he talked to DSJ, as well. Multiple reports have said that the Magic are the most interested team in DSJ, so that could be a great landing spot for him. Reports also say he's likely to be dealt, but nothing is imminent. Jalen Brunson and Maxi Kleber will benefit with more playing time with Kleber having more value as a pickup. Brunson is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Jan 16 - 7:00 PM

Justin Holiday will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Holiday hasn't done much since landing in Memphis, but with Kyle Anderson (ankle) out for the next few weeks, there's a decent amount of opportunity in front of him. He could be someone to think about streaming in deep leagues tonight, although it's worth noting that the Bucks tend to be a tough matchup.
Jan 16 - 6:36 PM

James Harden, Eric Gordon, Austin Rivers, P.J. Tucker and Gary Clark will get the start against the Nets on Wednesday.

On Monday, the Rockets had used five centers in the first 14 minutes against the Grizzlies, and they ditched a traditional center for most of the second half even against Marc Gasol. Clearly, the Rockets do not trust Nene, Isaiah Hartenstein and Marquese Chriss to log decent minutes, so Clark looks like the winner here. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 16 - 6:28 PM

Eric Gordon (knee) is back in the starting lineup against the Nets on Wednesday.

He's missed the last eight games due to a knee contusion to his bad knee that gave him problems in New Orleans. The Rockets desperately need him to play minutes, so he could hit the ground running in his return today. He's worth an add in standard leagues until Chris Paul (hamstring) returns.
Jan 16 - 6:25 PM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) and Shabazz Napier (hamstring) will be available to play on Wednesday against the Rockets.

This will be RHJ's first game in January following a seven-game absence, and it'll be interesting to see what his minutes look like tonight with Jared Dudley (hamstring) unavailable. Hollis-Jefferson hasn't been great this season, so this is more of a wait-and-see situation in standard settings. With both Napier and RHJ available, Treveon Graham's minutes will take a sizeable hit.
Jan 16 - 6:08 PM

Mo Bamba (foot) will not play Wednesday night against the Pistons.

Coach Steve Clifford said that the rookie is getting closer. "He feels better," Clifford said. "He did everything this morning in shootaround and he’s gonna do more contact, and we’ll take it from there. He’s definitely closer to playing, but we don’t wanna rush him back b/c he feels better." With him out, Khem Birch will be the backup to Nikola Vucevic and could be worth a look as a stream for blocks.

Further tests revealed nothing more than a sprained left thumb for Wendell Carter Jr. and he is being listed as day-to-day.

There was some fear that Carter Jr. had fractured his thumb and that he would need surgery, but upon further evaluation, it was discovered that the ligament in his thumb is fully intact, so he shouldn't need to miss too much time here. For now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Thursday's game in Denver, and if he needs to sit that one out, there will be more minutes for Bobby Portis, Robin Lopez, Cristiano Felicio and Jabari Parker.
Jan 16 - 5:49 PM

Jamal Crawford (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday against the Raptors.

The Suns have some depth with Devin Booker back in action, so it's possible Crawford may not be in the rotation anyway. Coach Igor Kokoskov has said he wants to play De'Anthony Melton and Elie Okobo more, as well.

Aron Baynes (thumb) is available for Wednesday against the Raptors.

The Celtics finally get their backup center back for a big matchup. His return will bump Daniel Theis and Robert Williams down in the depth chart, but Baynes himself won't have much fantasy value while Al Horford is healthy.
