Player Notes

  • Marreese Speights scores 23 w/ 10 boards
    Marreese Speights scored a season-high 23 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes in Monday's 120-98 win over the Thunder.

    Advice: He scored 10 of his points in garbage time during the fourth quarter, but Speights was on fire all night, hitting 8-of-15 shots from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Speights is a per-minute monster, but the problem is that he's only eclipsed the 20-minute mark one time in January (tonight). With Blake Griffin (knee) nearing a return, it's tough to get excited about this. We'll let you know if his role grows. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:24 pm
  • Austin Rivers scores 16 w/ six assists
    Austin Rivers scored 16 points on 5-of-13 shooting in Monday's win over the Thunder.

    Advice: He played impressive defense on Russell Westbrook and is thriving with the first unit. Rivers logged 35 minutes and added six assists, two rebounds, one steal and two triples, and he could have the ball in his hands a lot more if Chris Paul (sprained thumb) misses any time. Rivers' usage rate rises from 14.9 to 21.8 when Paul is off the court, so he looks like a solid pickup in addition to Raymond Felton. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:18 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores 15 in Hood's absence
    Joe Johnson hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds and one assist in Monday's win 106-101 win over the Suns.

    Advice: Johnson is getting extra run with Rodney Hood out for a couple weeks with a knee injury, although Joe Ingles is the new starter. Johnson scored 10 points in the fourth quarter and hit a huge 3-pointer to put the Jazz up one with just 42 seconds remaining. Johnson and the Jazz have two more games this week, so picking him (and/or Ingles) up might make sense, if you have someone you don't mind dropping. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:13 pm
  • X-rays negative on Chris Paul's thumb
    X-rays on Chris Paul's left thumb came back negative.

    Advice: This is awesome news because it means we can rule out any breaks. CP3 will have additional tests on Tuesday morning which will include an MRI, so hopefully we get more good news. For now, the Clippers have diagnosed him with a sprained left thumb and he should be considered day-to-day barring another update. If we learn that he will miss additional time, Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers will benefit the most. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:05 pm
  • Rudy Gobert goes for 18-17-4 in win
    Rudy Gobert took advantage of the center-less Suns on Monday and racked up 18 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks in 36 minutes of a 106-101 win.

    Advice: Gobert hit 8-of-12 shots and also had a steal, and we were simply a year too early on predicting his breakout season. It's happening before our eyes, as he's averaging 12.3 points, 12.4 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. Tyson Chandler was out and Alex Len played just 21 minutes, leaving Gobert to roam free without much opposition tonight. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:04 pm
