Jordan Clarkson shot 3-of-8 from three Saturday vs. the Nuggets, scoring 13 points (5-of-12 FGs) with four rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes.

After scoring 13 points in Friday's loss to the Jazz, Clarkson matched that point total in the final game of the Cavaliers' six-game road trip. The fifth-year guard, Cleveland's most consistent bench scorer, has been quiet recently as he's averaging 13.8 points per game with shooting splits of 39.7/39.3/80.0. Clarkson will certainly have opportunities to produce given the state of Cleveland's bench, which is a good reason to use him in standard leagues.

In the final game of the Cavaliers' road trip, Collin Sexton tallied ten points (4-of-13 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), seven assists, four rebounds, one steal and one three-pointer in 33 minutes.

The seven assists are a career-high for Sexton, who had six in the prior three games combined. While the rookie point guard has a usage percentage of 24.6%, he's ranked 164th in the NBA in assist percentage (16.0%). Hopefully Saturday's effort is a sign that Sexton is taking a step forward when it comes to setting up his teammates, as this would do wonders for his fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 2:15 AM

Rodney Hood was 5-of-9 from the field Saturday vs. the Nuggets, scoring 18 points (6-of-6 FTs) with three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

After scoring just four points in his return to Utah Friday night, Hood was much better in the Cavaliers' blowout loss to the Nuggets. The keys for him when it comes to his fantasy value are health and consistency, as both have been issues this season. Hood has now reached double figures in scoring in five games this month, and he's averaging 12.2 points per with 43.6/35.3/100.0 shooting splits in January.
Jan 20 - 2:09 AM

Cedi Osman shot 6-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the foul line Saturday vs. the Nuggets, scoring 17 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one blocked shot and one three-pointer in 30 minutes.

After scoring a total of 11 points in the two games prior, Osman managed to bounce back Saturday night in Denver. He was also more productive in non-scoring categories, but that's not enough to make him a player who must be picked up in standard leagues. In deeper leagues however, he may be worth taking a flier on.
Jan 20 - 1:57 AM

Ante Zizic had one of the best games of his young career Saturday vs. the Nuggets, as he scored a career-high 23 points (9-of-12 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds in 31 minutes.

Once again starting for the injured Tristan Thompson (foot), Zizic was one of the few bright spots in the Cavaliers' third straight defeat. Over his last five games the 6'11 center is averaging 14.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per, shooting 65.9% from the field and 85.7% from the foul line. As long as Thompson remains out of the lineup, Zizic should receive enough playing time to have an impact.
Jan 20 - 1:48 AM

Gary Harris (hamstring) scored four points Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, shooting 2-of-7 from the field, to go along with one rebound, one assist and one blocked shot.

Like Will Barton, Harris is under a restriction of 18-20 minutes until he's deemed to be back to full strength. He wasn't as productive offensively as he was in Thursday's win over the Bulls, a game which he scored 14 points in 19 minutes. But Harris didn't have any issues with the hamstring, which is of greater importance to the Nuggets as the team moves forward.
Jan 20 - 1:43 AM

Will Barton played 21 minutes Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, finishing with five points (2-of-7 FGs), three assists, one rebound and one three-pointer.

Barton, who recently returned from a hip injury, is under a minutes restriction of 18-20 minutes (as is Gary Harris). Coach Mike Malone has not stated when the restriction will no longer apply to either injured player, so it may be best for fantasy players to stash Barton on the bench for now. He'll be a far more viable fantasy option once he's able to take on a full workload.
Jan 20 - 1:31 AM

Paul Millsap played 23 minutes Saturday, tallying 14 points (7-of-11 FGs), five rebounds, one assist and two steals vs. the Cavaliers.

Millsap has scored 14 points in consecutive games, his highest single-game point total since January 5 against the Hornets (18 points). The veteran forward's still dealing with a broken toe, but after some early struggles shooting the basketball he appears to be back on track.
