Quinn Cook will draw the start for Stephen Curry (groin) against the Nets on Saturday.

Curry's MRI was "encouraging" on Friday and he is day-to-day, according to coach Steve Kerr. The Warriors aren't going to put Curry back on the court at less than 100 percent, so Curry is likely going to miss time beyond Saturday. Cook was very effective as a starter last year with 14.6 points per game in his starts, so he should have some value while Curry is out. If you need scoring and/or a point guard, Cook should have some value in standard leagues.

Kyrie Irving dominated during a 122-116 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring 38 points with seven rebounds, 11 assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He exploded in the third quarter with 20 points and is playing some of his best ball of his career. After the last game, Irving had a career-high 18 dimes and mentioned it after the game. "Somehow people still think I can't pass," he said. His recent output in passing makes him the first Celtics player to record 27+ points and 11+ assists in consecutive games since Larry Bird (Feb. 13-14, 1986). He'll have some risk rest late in the year, but Irving is among the best fantasy point guards when active.

Marcus Smart continued his solid run this calendar year, making 7-of-9 from the field for 20 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block, three steals and six 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He likes 2019 and is shockingly shooting 53.7% from deep this calendar year. He was sitting at just 32.3% from deep in the 2018 games this season, and routinely hanging around 30% most seasons in his career, usually making him one of the worst players in fantasy for FG%. This is very likely to be a fluke, but Smart has been a top-40 player this month because he's making shots. He probably should be picked up until he cools off.

Luke Kennard was instrumental in Detroit's 98-93 win over the Heat on Friday, scoring 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting in 34 minutes.

His workload jumped up for the fourth straight game, and the second-year guard topped off his hot shooting night with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and four triples. Coach Dwane Casey called Kennard his second or third best playmaker before the game and then gushed about him in the post-game conference. "I think Luke has shown that he's going to be a dynamic wing player in this league," he said. Detroit's wing rotation has been a fantasy wasteland for most of the season, but Kennard is a name to watch or a flier to see if he can separate himself.

D'Angelo Russell matched his career-high 40 points during a 117-115 comeback win over the Magic on Friday, adding two rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one turnover and eight 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The 21-point comeback victory marked the team's biggest comeback win in the Brooklyn era. Russell went off in the second quarter with 19 consecutive points for the Nets, setting an NBA high for this season. He did not close on Wednesday, and for the second time he shined in the following game after a 34-point game last month when he didn't close prior to that one. Russell is the first player in franchise history to register 40+ points, eight or more treys and seven or more assists in a game. He's making a case for an All-Star bid with ice in his veins.

Blake Griffin nearly triple-doubled in a 98-93 win over Miami on Friday, scoring 32 points with 11 rebounds and nine assists.

He also had one steal, three triples and five turnovers, hitting 10-of-24 shots and 9-of-11 free throws. The Pistons are still in the playoff hunt and have won three out of their last four games, but as long as they're competitive Griffin's value will be safe. He also might play more center and could get a short-term boost if Andre Drummond misses any time with his nasal injury -- his usage rate goes up by 5.8% with Drummond off the court and his rebounding rate jumps up 4.4%.

Jarrett Allen kept the blocks coming on Friday with four against the Magic, adding six points, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

He received some serious praise on Wednesday with DeMarre Carroll saying he is growing before our eyes, and coach Kenny Atkinson saying he wanted to feed him in PNR. Perhaps the best part of Allen going off in 2019 has been his consistent blocks, averaging 2.6 block, 12.4 points, 11.1 boards, 0.8 steals and 1.0 turnovers on 56.0% from the field and 80.% from the line in his nine January games. That makes him a top-25 player per game in 2019, and this is exactly what his supporters envisioned while riding his hype train back in the summer. He should be among the league leaders in swats going forward and could continue to flirt with early-round value in 2019 going forward.

Lou Williams (sore right hamstring) will not play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

Fantasy owners never like to see hamstring injuries, but luckily this isn't the same one that bothered him earlier this season. Hopefully it's just a minor day-to-day thing, but there's no clarity on that front yet. The Clippers have a lot of different directions they could go here, with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander possibly spending more time next to Patrick Beverley. Avery Bradley has been terrible this season, so deep-league owners can keep an eye on Tyrone Wallace as well.
Jan 18 - 9:46 PM

Aaron Gordon (back) is doubtful to return against the Nets on Friday.

It was clear he tweaked his back in the second half, but Gordon was able to play through it. He was on the bench for a few minutes, but then went back to the locker room. Gordon had back problems in November and the Magic do play against the Bucks on Saturday, so he is unlikely to play. Gordon was playing well today with 23 points, four boards, five dimes and three 3-pointers, and he was locked in at the line, too. If he is out, Jonathan Isaac would shift to the PF spot while Wes Iwundu or Jonathon Simmons would likely start.
Jan 18 - 9:01 PM

Andre Drummond (nasal injury) will not return on Friday.

It took about 35 minutes for the Pistons to rule him out after the injury occurred. Drummond took a shot to the face from James Johnson and was bleeding. Perhaps he broke his nose, or it could be related to the nose surgery he had a couple years ago. With him out, Zaza Pachulia will see more minutes while the Pistons use Blake Griffin at the five.
Jan 18 - 8:30 PM

Ish Smith (groin) will not return on Friday.

He has tightness in the same area of his adductor strain that kept him out for over a month, but the team said it's not an aggravation. Still, it's possible he misses time, which will give more run to Langston Galloway, Luke Kennard and Bruce Brown. There really isn't a strong add to make here.
Jan 18 - 7:48 PM

DeMar DeRozan (left ankle) will not play on Friday night against the Wolves.

The ankle soreness note was not revealed until after he was ruled out, and coach Gregg Popovich said earlier today he was available. It's not a back-to-back set for the Spurs, so this comes as a major surprise with no warning from the Spurs, and he was even listed with the starters. DeRozan called his slump a "natural dip" in the "dog days" of the season, so maybe this day off is to help him get right. Pau Gasol will get the start while the entire rotation will step up. Marco Belinelli and Patty Mills should see more run off the bench, too.
