FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Bradley Beal (leg) said he felt no pain after Saturday's game, he was just a little winded in the beginning.

After more than a week off to deal with a stress reaction, Beal returned to action over the weekend and looks like he'll be ready to resume his normal starting duties. The time off obviously didn't help his conditioning, but he'll get his stamina back soon enough. Analysis: Howard Bender

Wilson Chandler scored 14 points (6-10 FGA) going 2-for-5 from three-point range with eight rebounds in Sunday's 99-92 loss to the Pelicans.

After posting only six points in his previous game, Chandler got himself back on track Sunday in his return to the starting lineup. Although both Chandler and Danilo Gallinari play the same position, both players were in the starting lineup, so it appears his minutes won't be limited down the stretch if the team continues to go this route.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Danilo Gallinari scored 21 points (7-18 FGA, 5-6 FTA) going 2-for-8 from three-point range with four rebounds and one block in Sunday's 99-92 loss to the Pelicans.

Gallinari is now averaging 18.4 points and 3.0 three-pointers over his last five games as he tries to make the best of what appeared to be another lost season. As long as he continues to receive quality minutes down the stretch he remains a solid deep league option if nothing else.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Randy Foye scored 19 points (7-13 FGA) going 5-for-10 from three-point range with two steals in Sunday's 99-92 loss to the Pelicans.

Foye was in the Nuggets starting lineup for the first time this season on Sunday as the team turned to a small lineup to matchup better with the Pelicans. Although this was a nice showing from Foye, it is unknown if the Nuggets will continue to use this lineup on a regular basis, so there is a chance he will be heading back to the bench if things were to change.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Omer Asik scored nine points (3-5 FGA, 3-5 FTA) with 16 rebounds, three assists and one steal in Sunday's 99-92 win over the Nuggets.

Asik has now posted double-digit rebounds in four straight games as he continues to man the post in the absence of Anthony Davis. Until Davis is healthy enough to return to the lineup Asik remains a solid start in most fantasy formats while averaging a double-double over his last five games.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Eric Gordon scored 18 points (6-14 FGA, 3-5 FTA) going 3-for-10 from three-point range with two rebounds, tow assists and one steal in Sunday's 99-92 win over the Nuggets.

Gordon continues to surge since returning from the All-Star break as he is now averaging 16.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 3.6 three-pointers over his last five games. Although once Anthony Davis returns Gordon may lose a few shots on a nightly basis, he still remains a solid fantasy option while performing at a high level.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Tyreke Evans scored 22 points (7-14 FGA, 8-11 FTA) with seven rebounds, seven assists and one steal in Sunday's 99-92 win over the Nuggets.

Evans has been on a tear of late as he is now averaging 16.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 9.4 assists and 1.2 steals over his last five games. As long as he continues to contribute across the board on a nightly basis he remains a must-start in all fantasy formats.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.

McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year.  Analysis: Spencer Silva

Jordan Hill scored 14 points (5-10 FGA, 3-4 FTA) going 1-for-1 from three point range with 12 rebounds and two assists.

Hill continues to put up solid numbers in spite of his decrepit supporting cast in LA. It looks like the hip injury is past him, as he's averaging close to a double-double since the all-star break. He should be owned in most fantasy leagues. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Jeremy Lin scored 20 points (7-14 FGA, 5-6 FTA) going 1-for-3 from three point range with six rebounds, eight assists and three steals during the Lakers' 108-101 loss to the Thunder on Sunday night.

Lin played 32 minutes off the bench and looked like the best player on the Lakers for most of the game. He's looked like a different player since the All-Star Break, averaging 17 points and 5 assists over his last five games. He's probably worth a flier if you need a PG/SG. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Wayne Ellington scored 12 points (5-15 FGA, 1-3 FTA) going 1-for-8 from three point range with six rebounds, six assists and a steal during the Lakers' 108-101 loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

Ellington got the start at the three and place of the injured Nick Young. He shot a pathetic 1-for-8 from three point range and 5-for-15 overall. He did, however, sprinkle on six assists and six rebounds, which made the overall line palatable.  Analysis: Spencer Silva
