LeBron James scored 38 points with eight rebounds, six assists and two steals in OT win over Hawks.

Billy Burns went 2-for-4 with a triple, a double, a walk and two runs scored on Wednesday against the Rockies.

Burns continues to ride this hot streak and owners should continue to stick with him. He is producing across the board, as seen by his .320 average, 34 runs scored, two bombs, 15 RBI and 16 stolen bases. Continue to start him while he is hot. Analysis: Colby Conway

Tyler Clippard struck out two batters in 1 1/3 innings to earn his 14th save of the season on Wednesday against the Rockies.

Even though he doesn’t get many opportunities, he is still a viable option in fantasy squads who need some help in the saves department. He hasn’t blown a save since June 7 and he should continue to pitch at a high level moving forward. He has six strikeouts in his last five innings on the mound, compared to just one walk. Analysis: Colby Conway

Jesse Hahn allowed one earned run on four hits with two walks while striking out six in six innings on Wednesday against the Rockies.

Hahn isn’t striking batters out at a high clip, but he is doing a fairly good job of limiting the damage. He has allowed more than three earned runs just once in his last 10 starts and is a very serviceable fantasy asset. He did a good job limiting a somewhat dangerous Colorado offense to just one run in his six innings of work and he is a solid SP4 for most teams this season. His next start will come on Tuesday against the New York Yankees. Analysis: Colby Conway

Nick Hundley went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and one RBI on Wednesday against the Athletics.

Hundley is arguably the biggest surprise of the top-10 fantasy catchers thus far in 2015. He has shown a little bit of pop, but owners are loving his .298 average. High average is tough to find from a catcher these days, making Hundley a rarity. He should be owned in most formats. Analysis: Colby Conway

Chad Bettis allowed three earned runs on seven hits with four walks and four strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Athletics.

Bettis was a fantasy commodity for a bit, following two impressive eight inning starts, but since then, he has been pedestrian. His ERA has climbed to 3.67 on the year and command has become a major issue for the right-hander. He was walked multiple batters in six straight starts while posting right around five strikeouts per start. He typically doesn’t get through the seventh inning, so he isn’t going particularly late into ballgames for his owners. His next start will come on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels. Analysis: Colby Conway

Sonny Gray (illness) is out of the hospital. There is no decision on his next start.

Gray was scratched from his start on Tuesday due to illness which sent him to the hospital. Given the severity of the illness it would seem likely that Gray would not make his start this weekend but for now owners should consider him day-to-day. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Jarred Cosart will return to the starting rotation on Saturday.

Cosart pitched four innings out of the bullpen on Friday, but the Marlins are ready to give him a rotation spot back. The 25-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.12 ERA and 1.26 WHIP across 43 2/3 innings into Saturday night's start against the Cubs. Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Andre Ethier is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Don Mattingly is sitting all of his lefties on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Alex Guerrero will play left field and bat sixth in Ethier's absence.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Joc Pederson is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Pederson also gets a day off with Robbie Ray on the mound on Wednesday. The rookie outfielder will give way to Enrique Hernandez in center field.  Analysis: Brian Rothstein

Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Gonzalez is drawing a breather with left-hander Robbie Ray on the bump for the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. Andy Van Slyke will play first base and bat fifth in his absence. Analysis: Brian Rothstein
