News: Motiejunas scored 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-2 3P) with eight rebounds, a steal and a block in 32 minutes during Monday's win over the Knicks. Impact: He's not putting up huge numbers, but Motiejunas is proving to be a serviceable fantasy asset while Dwight Howard (knee) and Terrence Jones (leg) are sidelined.(RotoWire, )

News: Motiejunas scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) with 12 rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes Wednesday. Impact: Motiejunas clearly benefited from the loss of big men Dwight Howard (knee) and Terrance Jones (leg). In three games without those two players, Motiejunas is averaging 12.3 points and 7.6 rebounds in 28.7 minutes. While the 14 and 12 that he posted on Saturday should not be expected, Motiejunas offers reliable fantasy value as long as Howard is out.(RotoWire, )

News: Motiejunas started for the Rockets on Sunday, playing 32 minutes, scoring 7 points (3-9 FG, 1-2 FT), but grabbed nine rebounds, including seven offensive rebounds. Impact: Ever since moving back into the starting lineup, Motiejunas has shown that he can contribute in non-traditional ways. Although his points total is not enough to amaze some owners, the fact that he was able to grab seven offensive rebounds while starting next to Dwight Howard is worth noting. In Sunday's historically bad game against the Thunder, the points were going to come from extra possessions so Motiejunas's efforts did not go unnoticed in this grind it out game.(RotoWire, )

News: Motiejunas scored three points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, and two blocks in 31 minutes against the 76ers Friday. Impact: This marks the third game in a row that Motiejunas has played more minutes than Kostas Papanikolaou. Before that, even though Motiejunas had been starting, it was Papanikolaou who was seeing more action almost every night. Terrance Jones (leg) will likely reclaim his starting role when he returns, but the apparent reemergence of Motiejunas as Jones' true backup is a significant development.(RotoWire, )

News: Motiejunas will start at power forward Wednesday against the Timberwolves. Impact: Motiejunas played off the bench in the Rockets' last game and had his best game of the season, so he will move back into the starting lineup Wednesday night and send Kostas Papanikolaou to the bench.(RotoWire, )
