Jason Motte (elbow) could be activated from the disabled list Sunday.
He should immediately settle into an eighth-inning set-up role with Trevor Rosenthal remaining as the team's closer. Yes, Rosenthal has had his ups and downs, but manager Mike Matheny hasn;t even hinted at the notion of changing closers and he certainly isn't going to thrust Motte into the job right from the start upon his return from Tommy John surgery. Grab him if you need holds, though.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Andre Ellington suffered a left foot injury in Week 12.
Surprise, suprise, Ellington got hurt again. The guy is made of glass and should not be started in any leagues. He should be rostered in most leagues, but he's so fragile it's basically impossible to count on him getting through an entire game without suffering some type of setback. Add that to the fact that Chris Johnson gets the majority of the carries and Ellington is even more difficult to trust. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Blake Griffin scored 26 points (9-of-16 FGA, 7-of-9 FTA), grabbed eight rebounds, and recorded eight assists on Sunday afternoon against the T-Wolves.
Blake Griffin finished a couple rebounds and assists shy of a triple-double on Sunday afternoon, as he scored 26 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and recorded eight assists. He also was pretty efficient from the floor, making 9-of-16 shots, and from the free throw line, converting 7-of-9 attempts. At this point, he has established himself as a premier fantasy player, and a fringe elite star in terms of the NBA overall. Continue to expect big things out of him going forward due to his immense talent, versatile skillset, and elite point guard to get him the ball. Analysis: Dom Murtha
