Nate McMillan said he has "no plans" to remove Tyreke Evans from the starting lineup while Victor Oladipo (knee) is sidelined.

Evans has started the past eight games for Indy but hasn't done much with the increased opportunity, churning out meager averages of 9.4 points, 3.3 assists, 1.4 triples, 1.9 steals and 2.9 turnovers per game on 31.3% shooting. "I just think guys go through stretches like this. It happens," said McMillan. "We’re going to keep him there in that spot while Victor is out and continue to try and help him find his rhythm." He's been abysmal in Indiana this season, and while he is starting, he's simply not worth the headache in standard leagues.

Victor Oladipo (right knee) logged 29 minutes in his return on Wednesday, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds and six assists.

Oladipo was on a minute-limit but it obviously wasn't very stringent, and he still racked up a solid stat line, making 5-of-11 field goals with one 3-pointer. Indiana had reeled off three straight wins prior to VO's return and he didn't force the issue too much, with Myles Turner even taking double Oladipo's shot attempts tonight. He admitted afterward that conditioning is still an issue, estimating that he's about 90%, but the key is that "his knee felt fine." He should be ready to rumble vs. Philly on Friday.

Kyle Lowry made 9-of-18 field goals on Wednesday for 23 points, 12 assists, five rebounds and three steals in 38 minutes vs. Golden State.

During a four-game stretch from Dec. 3-9, Lowry averaged 3.8 points on 14.3% shooting -- Toronto was 1-3 in those games. The veteran warmed up with 21 efficient points on Tuesday, and tonight's performance suggests he's fully out of his slump. Despite the recent struggles, Lowry still ranks second among qualifying players in offensive rating (118.2), trailing only teammate Danny Green.
Dec 13 - 1:35 AM

Kevin Durant's game-high 30 points, seven boards and five assists weren't enough vs. Toronto on Wednesday.

Durant trails only James Harden for usage at 31.1%, but that had dipped to 25.9% since Stephen Curry returned on Dec. 1. Offensive touches weren't an issue tonight with Durant going 13-of-22 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers, but he got no help from his teammates -- Draymond Green, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were a combined 11-of-34 from the field. The Warriors' real-world struggles aside, KD is an every-night goldmine for fantasy.

Nemanja Bjelica exacted some revenge on Wednesday with 25 points, five rebounds, four 3-pointers, three assists and two blocks in a win vs. Minnesota.

Bjelica must be pleased with his decision as a free agent this summer. He landed a three-year, $20.5 million contract in a tight market, has started all 26 games for Sacramento, and tonight's win helped the Kings assume the No. 8 seed in the West (Minnesota is tied for No. 13). Bjelica has been a worthwhile fantasy option overall this season, but reduced minutes (29 tonight, but just 22.2 in November) make him hard to trust in most 10- and 12-team formats.

Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) plans to make his season debut in Thursday's road game against the Suns, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.

The target date for Dirk has changed a few times, but it sounds like he's finally going to make it out there after some setbacks. Before Wednesday's game, coach Rick Carlisle said Dirk is "getting closer" to a return, but the 40-year-old Hall of Fame big man is likely going to have a minutes cap upon his return. He's not the strongest add in standard leagues because he'll likely have minutes restrictions for a while.

John Collins scored 20 points (10-of-22 FGs, 0-of-1 FT) with 17 rebounds, one assist, one block, and five turnovers in 36 minutes against the Mavericks on Wednesday.

Another night, another career-high for Collins, with tonight being total rebounds (17) and offensive rebounds (nine). He's now double-double in five straight games, which extends his career-high mark. The only thing holding him back from climbing into the next tier of fantasy value is his lack of defensive stats. He has only one steal in his first 12 games and is averaging under one block per game. Outside of that, he's been unreal since returning from his ankle injury.
Dec 13 - 12:41 AM

Trae Young scored 24 points (11-of-20 FGs) with 10 assists, two steals, two 3-pointers, and just two turnovers in 35 minutes against Dallas on Wednesday.

Young showed up for his matchup against fellow top-5 pick Luka Doncic, notching his first double-digit assist game since Nov. 27. This was just his third game above 50% shooting on the season and the first since Oct. 30. He recently stated that he felt like he's up against the rookie wall, so hopefully this is a sign of him breaking through it.
Dec 13 - 12:24 AM

Anthony Davis made 16-of-32 from the field for a season-high 44 points during a 118-114 win over the Thunder on Wednesday, adding 18 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

He had his weekly trip to the locker room after Cheick Diallo fell into his quad in the first quarter, but AD returned in the second quarter. Once he was able to get loose, AD looked fine in another monster performance and made all 11 from the line, as well. Before the game, coach Alvin Gentry said he wanted to dial back AD's minutes, but of course he wasn't too tied to that idea with AD hitting 40 minutes for the eighth time this season. He's easily the best player in fantasy and it's not close, so his fantasy owners will deal with all the locker room trips.

Jonas Valanciunas has been diagnosed with a dislocated thumb on his left (non-shooting) hand.

This is the initial diagnosis and we should have more specifics in the coming days, including a rough timetable. His absence could be measured in weeks, but owners should remain patient as we await more information. For as long as he's out, Serge Ibaka, Greg Monroe and OG Anunoby should all be asked to step up in the frontcourt rotation.
Dec 12 - 11:42 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 38 points during a 130-125 overtime win at Washington on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He was a one-man wrecking crew with the last 12 points for Boston in OT. Irving hit a contested corner three over John Wall and another 31-foot J near the half-court logo on back-to-back possessions to seal the deal for the Celtics. He missed Monday due to a shoulder injury from Thursday, and Irving did have a wrap on his shoulder in the second half because going off late. The Celtics do have a back-to-back set against the Hawks on Friday and at Detroit on Saturday, so his fantasy owners will want to make sure he's good for those.
Dec 12 - 11:35 PM

Marcus Morris scored 27 points with nine rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He's been awesome and he's making himself some serious money this upcoming summer. Morris scored 25-plus points in back-to-back games for the first time in his eight-year career, and Morris did take a quick jab at his brother's team in the win. "We just tried to move the ball," Morris said about the Wizards defense. "We knew that they were going to give up on plays if we got side to side." He closed at the five in this game and should be owned in all standard leagues.
