Kemba Walker scored 18 points with eight assists before fouling out after 40 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Spurs.
Walker has now made it through two games without suffering any setbacks following an ankle injury that forced him out of the starting lineup for seven games. As long as he continues to average well over 10 shots per game, Walker will continues to be a solid fantasy contributor. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Wandy Rodriguez allowed just one run on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings against the Angels on Friday.
Sigh. He’s like that bad penny you just can’t get rid of, no matter how hard you try. Just when you think Major League teams have had enough of him and his boring mediocrity, someone goes and brings good ol’ Wandy back from the dead. It’s difficult to imagine that he’ll last long with the Rangers, especially with the number of home runs he normally allows, but consider this the warning to stay away. This start may not look bad on the surface, but it’s just setting you up for something downright horrible in the future. He’ll get another start next week against the Mariners, but we cannot, in good conscience, recommend using him. Analysis: Howard Bender
