    • Willie Cauley-Stein GS C
      Warriors' Willie Cauley-Stein: Reduced role continues
      5h ago

      Cauley-Stein had eight points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to Dallas.

      Cauley-Stein's downward trajectory continued Tuesday, playing just 18 minutes despite the game going into garbage time. He is barely inside the top-300 over the past two weeks and the improvement of Omari Spellman has all but put an end to Caley-Stein's standard league dreams. If you are still holding for any reason, you should feel good about letting him go for basically any top-200 player right now.

      Warriors' Alec Burks: Only 10 points in loss
      5h ago

      Burks produced 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to Dallas.

      Burks struggled in the loss as his numbers continue to plateau. He was putting up top-50 numbers at one point but that production is beginning to level out as the Warriors begin to get healthy. He is still a 12-team option but if you are holding him, you simply need to keep your expectations in check moving forward.

      Poole had 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to the Mavericks.

      Poole scored 17 points Tuesday, eclipsing the 20 minute mark for the first time since late November. Damion Lee remained on the sidelines as the Warriors finalize his contract and this allowed Poole to step into a bigger role. Lee should be ready to go Thursday and that would likely result in Poole playing closer to 15 minutes. He is not a player to target in standard leagues.

      Warriors' Omari Spellman: Underwhelming in loss
      5h ago

      Spellman tallied just 10 points and four rebounds in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to the Mavericks.

      Spellman was disappointing in the loss, contributing very little despite still playing 27 minutes. He has emerged as the surprise starting center for the Warriors and has been a top-40 player over the past two weeks. If you made the move to pick him up recently, you would be well-advised to overlook this performance and hope he can get things going again when the Warriors face the Nuggets on Thursday.

      Finney-Smith finished with just six points, three assists and one rebound in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 victory over Golden State.

      Finney-Smith matched Luka Doncic, playing a team-high 27 minutes. However, unlike Doncic, Finney-Smith was unable to put up even a semi-respectable level of production. He has been seeing big minutes on a nightly basis and is the 85th ranked player over the past two weeks. He is fine to add in a standard league but there is basically no upside and performances such as this are certainly not uncommon.

      Marjanovic dominated during garbage time, recording his second double-double in under a week. This was only the second time this season Marjanovic has played at least 20 minutes, highlighting why he is impossible to trust in competitive leagues.

      Valanciunas contributed 19 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a block in 28 minutes during the Grizzlies' 121-110 win over Houston on Tuesday night.

      Coming off of a 31-point, 19-rebound explosion on Sunday, Valanciunas came back to earth a bit on Tuesday. He was still one of six Grizzlies with double-digit scoring on the way to their sixth straight win. He is a fringe top-10 asset at the center position in fantasy.

      Capela posted 16 points (6-7 FG, 4-4 FT), 16 rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes on Tuesday night, as the Rockets lost to the Grizzlies 121-110.

      After failing to record a double-double on Thursday and then missing Saturday's contest with a heel injury, Capela returned to his dominant ways with a strong showing Tuesday. He is sixth in the league in total rebounds and averages the third most per game. Interestingly, Capela's New Year's resolution must've been to improve his free-throw shooting, as the big man is 16-of-18 so far in 2020.

      Jordan scored nine points (4-5 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding 14 rebounds and a block in 23 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 118-107 loss to the Jazz.

      Jarrett Allen had a rough night, getting bullied by Rudy Gobert at both ends of the court, but Jordan at least was able to impose his will on the glass when he was on the court. The veteran center has delivered 10 or more boards in 11 of the last 16 games but scored in double digits only four times over that stretch, and despite his steady rebounding he's unlikely to bump Allen from the starting five.

      Gobert scored 22 points (9-12 FG, 4-6 FT) while adding 18 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 118-107 win over the Nets.

      The 27-year-old center dominated an overmatched Brooklyn frontcourt en route to his fourth straight double-double and 29th of the season in 38 games. Gobert is now second in the NBA in boards per game (14.5) behind Andre Drummond, while the double-double moves him into a tie for fifth place in that category with Hassan Whiteside and Lebron James.

      Powell ended with 21 points (9-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 victory over the Warriors.

      Powell was a perfect 9-of-9 from the field Tuesday, continuing his recent strong production. The extended absence of Kristaps Porzingis (knee) has certainly been a blessing for Powell who has turned things around after a slow start to the season. Powell is not going to shoot this well on most nights but if you need an efficient big-man who can contribute on both ends of the floor, he is well worth a look.

      Jackson supplied 15 points (6-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three steals, two blocks, two rebounds and an assist during the Grizzlies' 121-110 victory against the Rockets on Tuesday night. He fouled out after 30 minutes of action.

      Jackson struggled with his shot but racked up defensive stats to help mitigate the inefficiency. The second-year player has seen a bump in almost all major categories while evolving into one of the premier three-point shooters in the league (41.8 percent). He is averaging just under 21 points, along with six rebounds and two blocks per game in the month of January.

      Nance was considered probable with left knee soreness so it's not a major surprise he'll be suiting up, but the Cavaliers will ease him back into action after missing the last six games. The 27-year-old is averaging 8.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 24.3 minutes this season, so the minutes restriction won't significantly alter his regular workload.

      Clarke (thumb) was questionable earlier in the day, but instead saw significant run. The 24 minutes were the most Clarke has seen in January amidst a slight decrease in his playing time. The 14 points were also a high for the month. The rookie has shown that he is capable of booming and may be on the upswing. He is an intriguing buy-low candidate.

      The 27 points tied his career high. Ingles' hot streak from long distance doesn't seem like it's going to end any time soon -- since the beginning of December, he's averaging 14.9 points, 5.9 assists, 4.1 boards, 3.2 threes and 1.1 steals while shooting a remarkable 52.8 percent (67-for-127) from beyond the arc.

      Brooks hit a season-high six three pointers in the contest and has attempted a whopping 8.7 shots from distance over the month of January --- a spike from the 3.7 he has averaged for his career.

The backcourt in Houston is fluid, with Eric Gordon recently returning from injury and Russell Westbrook's rest schedule, but McLemore is a streaming candidate on nights when the latter sits.

      Morant was trading punches with James Harden during a hot first quarter and was uber-efficient throughout the upset win.

      With Kyrie Irving (32 points in 32 minutes Tuesday) back in command of the offense, Dinwiddie's days as the Nets' main threat from the outside are over for now, but the 26-year-old can still be an effective complementary option. Dinwiddie was averaging 17.1 points, 4.6 assists, 2.3 boards and 1,6 threes in 26.3 minutes a night off the bench to begin the season before Irving injured his shoulder, but his production could settle in a bit higher than that as long as he remains in the starting five.

      Any thoughts of a minutes restriction for Irving in his second game back from a shoulder injury went out the window when the Nets found themselves facing a 14-point deficit at halftime, but despite the All-Star guard's best efforts in the second half they couldn't close the gap. Irving hadn't scored 30 or more points since Nov. 8 and hadn't posted double digits in a secondary category since he recorded a triple-double Nov. 2, but so long as his shoulder holds up, he should once again be an elite fantasy asset.
