Darren Collison Headshot

Collison posted 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds and three steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's 94=86 win over the Spurs.

Although Collison has shown difficulty in out-pacing] Cory Joesph at point guard in recent weeks, that wasn't the case on 'Sunday. Although Collison is the clear-cut starter, Jsoeph is seeing almost 29 minutes off the bench in 'January, which is slowly chipping away at Collison's value. This situation warrants a closer look for Collison owners in seasonal formats.

Victor Oladipo Headshot

Oladipo posted 19 points (8-14 FG. 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, three steals and an assist in 36 minutes during Sunday's 94=86 win over the Spurs.

Although Oladipo has been producing less-than-expected numbers of late, he still led all Pacers in scoring in Sunday's win.San Antonio is arguably one of the hardest places to win on the road, and despite a late charge by the Spurs, Olasdipo and the Pacers rose to the challenge. Consider Oladipo's below-average numbers as an aberration, as he's easily one of the best backcourt players in the league.
1:16 am (EST)
Tony Parker Headshot

Parker is expected to continue coming off the bench while Dejounte Murray starts at point guard, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports.

It was a surprising development when Murray was announced as the starter Sunday, and the expectation was that Parker was going to be rested. Parker, however, ended up playing 20 minutes off the bench, and it looks like that will continue. Oddly enough, Parker had his most productive game since late December despite being a reserve, as he posted 12 points, three rebounds and five assists. Murray, Parker and Patty Mills will likely all still take on similar workloads moving forward, making them all fairly unreliable fantasy options for now.
12:00 am (EST)
Aaron Gordon Headshot

Gordon posted 11 points (5-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes during Sunday's 103-95 win over the Celtics.

Gordon is having a pretty good January after struggling with various injury issues, as he was averaging 17.6 points and 8.4 rebounds coming to tonight's game. He recorded his fourth double-double of the month in Sunday's win. and seems to be poised for higher salaries in DFS formats as his game gets back on track.
Yesterday 11:58 pm (EST)
Jaylen Brown Headshot

Brown posted 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot in 37 minutes during Sunday's 103-95 loss to the Magic.

Pretty much everyone played second fiddle to Kyrie Irving on Sunday, whose output represented 42 percent of Boston's total score. Brown still managed to produce a modest effort, and had an overall efficient night on the floor, shooting 53.8 percent. Im his second year with the team his season averages have more than doubled as his responsibilities have increased with Gordon Hayward out for the year. He has a reliable 30-plus minutes of output on a nightly basis, so he remains a solid option in all formats as a second or third shooting guard.
Yesterday 11:48 pm (EST)
Kyrie Irving Headshot

Irving recorded 40 points (14-23 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, and a blocked shot in 40 minutes during Sunday's 103-85 loss to the Magic.

Irving represented 42 percent of Boston's total offense despite questions about his shoulder, which had him out of action on Thursday. Obviously, it isn't anything serious as Irving was literally a walking highlight reel in this game, as his swift ballhandling and deft passing kept Orlando defenders on their heels. While the Celtics should be concerned about their anemic output, Irving appears to be fine and ready to keep putting up monster numbers s one of the league's premier point guards.
Yesterday 11:16 pm (EST)
Evan Fournier Headshot

Fournier posted 19 points (8-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot in 35 minutes during Sunday's 103-95 win over the Celtics.

Fournier has been a welcome boost for the Magic as he's averaged 17 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists after missing most of December due to injury. Earlier in the week he logged a season-high 32 points against the Timberwolves, which is reminiscent of the kind of output he was putting up earlier in the year. While he is primarily a source of points only, Fournier will be one of the premier contributors in Orlando's offense moving forward.
Yesterday 11:09 pm (EST)
Elfrid Payton Headshot

Payton recorded 22 points (9-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 103-96 win over the Celtics.

Payton has had an up-and-down month so far, as he's mustered single-digit scoring totals in three of his nine games in January. The starting point guard's output has ebbed and flowed with Orlando's struggles, as this win was only their third win in 20 games. Payton should be a higher contributor of assists due to his position, and as a result he only warrants ownership as a third or fourth guard in seasonal formats.
Yesterday 11:02 pm (EST)
DeAndre Jordan Headshot

Jordan (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

This will be Jordan's fifth straight absence as he continues to nurse a sprained left ankle. It's unclear exactly how much longer Jordan will be held out, but Willie Reed will be expected to start at center again in his absence, while Montrezl Harrell will continue to see an expanded frontcourt role off the bench.
Yesterday 7:47 pm (EST)
Mario Chalmers Headshot

Chalmers (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the 76ers.

Chalmers was held out of Saturday's game against the Pelicans due to lingering shoulder soreness, and he'll likely be a game-time call for Monday's game. With Andrew Harrison likely returning to action Monday, Chalmers would be in line for split time at point guard if made active.
