Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points with nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks, two steals and two turnovers in 26 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

The Bucks have played the Warriors tough and Giannis' versatility is a big reason why. Antetokounmpo is the co-leader in usage rate with a 33.4 (Westbrook), but he's been even better than Westbrook with his 10.2 defensive boards per game (12.9 total). Antetokounmpo continues to just live inside with 60% of his shots coming at the rim, and going 10-of-11 from the line today helped after making just 70.8% in his previous games this season. He still hasn't hit his stride yet, but he'll be flirting with top-three value soon enough.

Avery Bradley got hot early on Sunday, finishing 6-of-15 from the field for 15 points with three 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and one steal.

The Clippers' usual starting lineup has a net rating of -8.0, due mostly to their poor offensive production, but they found a groove tonight and Bradley was a surprising reason for the success. He had 15 points in the first half, one shy of his season-high for a game, but was shutout after that. Given his season-long struggles, we're not buying into a few hot quarters.

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) was back in action on Sunday, but he shot just 4-of-16 from the field to score eight points in a home loss to the Clippers.

Yikes. DeRozan only missed one game but perhaps he needed another day to rest up. His jumpers were falling short and he didn't get the free-throw line for the first time all season tonight. It's uncharacteristic, to say the least, and cautious owners should confirm that he's good to go for Wednesday's game in Philly. With two days to rest before then, he should be fine.

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 30 points in a losing effort on Sunday, making 13-of-21 shots with 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

We haven't discussed Aldridge recently, simply because he's Mr. Reliable. He added a 3-pointer tonight and six of his boards came on the offensive glass, helping owners with OREB as a category. The Spurs are in the thick of the playoff race as the No. 6 seed, so there's no reason to think Aldridge's workload will ease up.

Darren Collison had it going vs. Charlotte on Sunday, scoring 19 points on 8-of-14 with nine assists in 30 minutes.

Collison also made three 3-pointers with three rebounds, two steals and a typically stingy two assists. Efficiency is the bedrock of his fantasy game, as he shoots well for a guard (47.1% career FGs) and currently ranks fifth in the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio. He also led the league in that category last season. Victor Oladipo's return hasn't damaged him and he's sitting on top-30 value (9-cat) in the past month. Not too shabby.

Myles Turner scored nine points and grabbed 16 rebounds on Sunday, with three 3-pointers, one assist and zero turnovers in 30 minutes.

His recently-injured shoulder sure looks fine. The Hornets get blocked 6.8 times per game, easily the highest in the NBA, so it's no surprise that Turner also swatted three shots tonight. The Pacers are one of two teams with just two games next week, putting weekly-matchup owners at a disadvantage, but you almost have to start a healthy Turner.

Joel Embiid (back tightness) is questionable to play vs. Houston on Monday.

Embiid was game-time with this injury on Saturday, but he suited up and dropped 31 points in a tough matchup. It may have flared up on him but details are scarce, and owners should await updates on Monday afternoon -- the good news is that it's one of the later tip-offs of a busy all-day slate.

Jimmy Butler (sore right wrist) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

The Wolves did list Butler as out with a right wrist injury back in late September, but that was during his acrimonious holdout -- it hasn't been an issue since. Hopefully he's only on the injury report as a precaution, but we'll know more after Philly's shootaround.

Lonzo Ball will miss 4-6 weeks with a Grade-3 left ankle sprain.

An MRI confirmed the damage and this is a brutal turn of events for Ball and the Lakers, who are currently tied for No. 8 in the West. The good news is that his ankle should be fine after immobilization, rest and rehab, and it's possible he could play soon after the All-Star break. Rajon Rondo (hand) is due back soon and his role becomes even more important, while guys like Lance Stephenson and Josh Hart will also be tasked with more play-making duties for the second unit. Given his uneven contributions in most fantasy leagues, it makes sense to cut Lonzo in re-draft leagues without an IR spot.

Jeff Teague (illness) will start Sunday's game vs. Phoenix.

He was a late addition to the injury report but there's no mention of a minute-limit, so owners should feel free to keep him locked into active lineups.
Jan 20 - 6:27 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. plans to return to the Mavericks for Tuesday's home game vs. the Clippers.

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle informed the team of this decision during Sunday's practice, and the plan is for DSJ to immediately re-join the rotation. His return is good news for a team suddenly playing without J.J. Barea (Achilles) for the rest of the season, and it ends speculation about how long his ostracism from the team would last. He's worth grabbing off the waiver wire if you need a guard, in case he hits his fantasy stride heading toward the All-Star break.
Jan 20 - 5:43 PM

Lou Williams (right hamstring) will not play on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

This is no surprise, since coach Doc Rivers said on Friday that Williams would "for sure" be rested on Sunday. It doesn't sound like Williams' sore hamstring is too serious, but L.A. will take every precaution with their veteran second-unit star. No one player will replace his production, but guys like Patrick Beverley, Tyrone Wallace should see more minutes off the bench.
