George Hill Headshot

Hill recorded 18 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 99-92 win over the Suns.

Hill's averaging 25.5 minutes per game this season, which is the lowest total of the 31-year -old veteran's career. It was expected that Hill's usage would mimic his previous totals in Utah and Indiana, but that hasn't been the case. Granted, the Kings aren't an offensive powerhouse, but Hill and Zach Randolph find themselves surrounded by several youngsters that are also vying for playing time. Hill's stat lines thus far have been modest aside from some outliers, and can only be considered as a third or fourth guard in seasonal leagues.
2:07 am (EST)
Bradley Beal Headshot

Beal recorded 28 points (11-33 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), four assists, two rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 103-98 loss to the Nets.

Beal continues to put up big scoring numbers for the Wizards, adding another 28 points. The team has struggled without John Wall (knee), losing a number of games they would normally be expected to win. Wall could return as soon as tomorrow against the Grizzlies, but until he does, Beal should continue to have free reign to let fly as many times as he wants.
1:19 am (EST)
Caris LeVert Headshot

LeVert totaled 16 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight assists and three rebounds in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 103-98 victory over Washington.

LeVert was great again Tuesday, scoring in double-figures for the fourth consecutive game. During that period he has seen his minutes rise to almost 30 per game. He has also been running the offense more, averaging more than seven assists. He has seen his game improve this season, and is looking like a nice waiver wire pickup with rest of season value.
1:15 am (EST)
Willie Cauley-Stein Headshot

Cauley-Stein (back) played 30 minutes off the bench in his return Tuesday against the Suns, posting 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 FT), six rebounds and two assists.

Cauley-Stein had missed the previous three games with a lower back strain, but was given a probable designation going into Tuesday and took the court as expected. While he played off the bench, Cauley-Stein logged a full 30 minutes, which was essentially a starter's workload. Look for him to make a return to the starting lineup in short order and that could come as soon as Thursday's tilt with the Timberwolves.
1:12 am (EST)
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Headshot

Hollis-Jefferson tallied 16 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one block in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 103-98 victory over the Wizards.

Hollis-Jefferson finished with another double-double, as the Nets picked up their 11th win of the season. He has been very consistent so far this season, currently averaging almost 15 points per game, while adding close to one steal and one block. He thrives in the uptempo offense, and barring any major injuries, should be able to maintain this sort of production moving forward.
1:10 am (EST)
Taurean Prince Headshot

Prince provided 24 points (8-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, and six assists in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 123-114 loss to the Cavaliers.

Prince finished with a career high in scoring while matching career highs in free-throws made and attempted. He was also extremely efficient overall, enjoying this career night on just 10 field-goal attempts. This is just the second time he has scored 20-plus points this season, but Prince has hit double figures in 20 of 27 appearances while adding decent production in the rebounding, assists, and steals categories.
1:10 am (EST)
Spencer Dinwiddie Headshot

Dinwiddie finished with 11 points (4-14 FG, 1-11 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 103-98 victory over Washington.

Dinwiddie handed out a season-high 12 assists, helping his team to a tough victory over the Wizards. He was terrible from the field in this game, shooting just 29 percent on 14 shot attempts. The shooting is likely to continue to be an issue, but he makes up for it with his assists and handy block numbers from the point-guard position.
1:06 am (EST)
Tristan Thompson Headshot

Thompson did not record a stat in six minutes of action during Tuesday's 123-114 win over the Hawks.

Making his return from a 19-game absence following a calf strain, Thompson was eased back into action and saw just six minutes. The seventh-year backup big man will likely work his way up to a respectable role over time. However, given that he was already playing a career-low 21.6 minutes per contest prior to Tuesday, Thompson may only be useful for those desperately needing help in the rebounding department in deeper leagues.
1:01 am (EST)
JJ Redick Headshot

Redick finished with 26 points (6-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 11-11 FT), three assists and two rebounds in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 118-112 victory over the Timberwolves.

Redick backed up his 28 point outing on Sunday, with another strong effort here. He has been quietly chugging along this season, averaging almost 17 points per game. He is a really nice fit for the uptempo offense run by the 76ers, and should continue to see minutes in the mid-thirties moving forward. He is not going to provide a lot other than scoring and three-pointers, so he does hold some nice trade value if you are in need of some other categories.
12:59 am (EST)
Erik Kratz (R) Headshot

Kratz re-signed with the Yankees on Tuesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Kratz opted for free agency after declining an outright assignment from the Yankees at the start of November, but will now rejoin the team for the 2018 campaign. He only took part in four games at the big league level this past season with New York, instead spending the majority of the year in Triple-A. The veteran catcher will likely provide depth in the minors once again after re-upping to a new deal, which should restrict his fantasy impact.
