    Player Notes

    • Aaron Gordon getting X-ray to check progress
      Aaron Gordon (foot) will get an X-ray on Thursday to check on the progress of his surgically-repaired left foot.

      Advice: Gordon's X-ray comes a month after his foot surgery and he's still targeting a mid-February return to the court. The rookie will likely be eased into the Magic's rotation upon his return, so fantasy owners can feel free to leave him on waiver wires. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson goes for 12 & 4 in start
      C.J. Watson had 12 points, four assists and five turnovers on 3-of-9 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

      Advice: CJW is likely going to continue to start until George Hill is ready to play again, so he's worth holding until we see Hill back on the floor after his knee injury. Rotoworld.com

    • Roy Hibbert awful in loss to Clippers
      Roy Hibbert was overmatched by DeAndre Jordan on Wednesday and lasted just 16 minutes before leaving with seven points, three rebounds, one assist, zero steals and zero blocks on 3-of-10 shooting.

      Advice: He had four fouls and could do nothing to slow Jordan down, as he racked up 15 points, 23 rebounds and two blocks in the win. Hibbert played well early in the season, but looks lost again. He'll eventually get it turned around, but you might have to bench him until he figures things out. Rotoworld.com

    • Zaza Pachulia plays 26 minutes
      Zaza Pachulia played 26 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with five points, eight rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

      Advice: He is sharing minutes at center and coach Jason Kidd is not using him at power forward these days. Perhaps one takeaway is the Bucks need Ersan Ilyasova (face) to come back. Pachulia is not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Al Jefferson nets 18 in first, finishes w/ 28
      Al Jefferson scored 18 of his 28 points in the first quarter against the Suns on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He scored more points in the first quarter than any of his previous three games, so this outburst was a surprise. The Suns have been soft on the inside, so kudos to Jefferson for capitalizing. He gets another tasty matchup against the 76ers on Friday, so his fantasy owners should have high hopes. Rotoworld.com
