2/16/2017 J.J. Redick, LAC, SG
Redick had 15 points and made 5 of 8 3-pointers in the Clippers' win over the Hawks on Wednesday.

2/16/2017 Paul Millsap, Atl, F-C
Millsap was held to eight points - well under his team-leading average of 18.1 - in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

Analysis: Millsap made just 3 of 12 shots and was 7 of 24 from the field in his final two games before the All-Star break. He'll be playing in Sunday's game in New Orleans, with Atlanta's next game Friday, Feb. 24.
2/16/2017 Kent Bazemore, Atl, G-F
Bazemore had two points, nine under his average, in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

Thompson had a game-high 35 points, including 14 in the third-quarter spree, helping Golden State beat the Kings 109-86 on Wednesday.

Analysis: Thompson, who returned after missing Monday's loss with a sore right heel, made 12 of his 18 shots, including 7 of 12 3-point attempts, en route to his fifth 30-point game of the season. In his final four games heading into the All-Star break, Thompson is averaging 31.3 points on 59.2 percent shooting - including 26 of 44 from 3-point range.
2/16/2017 Stephen Curry, GS, G
Curry had 13 points and nine assists in Wednesday's win over the Kings.

2/16/2017 Matt Barnes, Sac, G-F
Barnes had 15 points and 14 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

Analysis: Barnes has notched eight double-digit rebounding games this season, with five of them coming in his last nine contests.
2/16/2017 Malachi Richardson, Sac, SG
Richardson injured his hamstring and will reportedly miss at least six weeks.

Analysis: Richardson doesn't have much fantasy value.
2/16/2017 Otto Porter, Was, SF
Porter Jr. made six 3-pointers, finished with 25 points and eight rebounds, and the Washington Wizards won their fourth straight, a 111-98 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night.

Analysis: Porter has averaged 19.2 points in the last five contests.
2/16/2017 Markieff Morris, Was, F

Analysis: The troublesome Rondo did not score in 20 minutes of action after totaling 22 points in the previous two games.
2/16/2017 Isaiah Thomas, Bos, PG
Thomas had 29 points Thursday to make Celtics history.

Analysis: Thomas went 8 for 18 from the field and 9 for 9 at the line in his 41st straight game with at least 20 points, breaking the team record set by John Havlicek during the 1971-72 season.
2/15/2017 DeMarcus Cousins, Sac, F-C
Cousins scored 40 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and handed out eight assists, leading the Sacramento Kings to a 97-96 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night at Staples Center.

Williams scored a team-high 29 points for the Lakers on Tuesday.

Analysis: Sweet Lou has averaged 22.2 points and shot 48.5 percent in the last 13 games.
2/15/2017 Jahlil Okafor, Phi, C
Okafor is expected to play off the bench Wednesday against the Celtics as the 76ers continue to explore trading him.

Analysis: Okafor didn't play in Philadelphia's last two games. The best bet for Okafor's future appears to be a fresh start with a new team.
2/15/2017 Larry Nance Jr., LAL, PF
A sprained right thumb has landed Nance on the injury report, but he's listed as probable for Wednesday's matchup with Phoenix.

Analysis: Nance has seen big minutes off the Lakers' bench lately, averaging 10.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2 steals over the last five games.
2/15/2017 Jordan Clarkson, LAL, G
Clarkson has landed on the injury report with a sprained right thumb but is probable to play Wednesday against the Suns.

Analysis: Clarkson has been bothered by the injury for about a week and hasn't been providing much offense lately whether healthy or not. He's failed to reach his average of 13.6 points in five straight games, shooting 36.2 percent in that span and going 2 of 15 from 3-point range.
2/15/2017 Jeff Green, Orl, G-F
Green has moved into a starting role for the Magic following the trade of Serge Ibaka to Toronto. Orlando faces San Antonio on Wednesday.

Analysis: This is obviously a situation worth keeping an eye on as Green's value certainly will get a bump. Green, however, is averaging just 7 points on 27.7 percent shooting in 10 starts this season.
2/15/2017 Brandon Jennings, NY, PG
Jennings is sitting Wednesday with a sore Achilles.

Analysis: Jennings provides a solid veteran presence but at 8.7 points per game offers no fantasy value.
