News: McLemore scored 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with five rebounds in 36 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
Impact: His scoring has been erratic, as you might expect from a second-year player without a big role in his team's offense, but McLemore has hit for multiple three-pointers in four of his last six games. He's someone to keep an eye on in shallower leagues if you need help in that category.
News: Landry (wrist) return to action on Wednesday, scoring 14 points (4-9 FG, 6-8 FT) with seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in 23 minutes off the bench.
Impact: He didn't miss a beat after being sidelined for six games. Landry's fantasy value is limited due to his bench role, but DeMarcus Cousins' semi-regular foul trouble does open up more minutes for Landry than you might expect on your first glance at the Kings' depth chart.
News: Cousins scored 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 Ft) with four rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and an ugly nine turnovers in 30 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
Impact: Untimely fouls kept him on the bench more than usual, and he ended up playing his fewest minutes since New Year's Day, also the last time he failed to produce a double-double. His value in nine-category leagues is also suffering a bit as his turnovers continue to rise, and Cousins is now averaging a whopping 5.5 TOs through 11 January games. He's still a dominant force in the post, but his fantasy owners will need to take the good with the bad.
News: Gay scored 22 points (8-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 Ft) with three rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
Impact: Gay's now scored 20 or more points in nine of his last 11 games, with only an early ejection and a minor knee sprain slowing him down. The Kings' eastern swing takes them into Cleveland on Friday, a team he hit up for 23 points earlier in the month, so look for Gay to continue his strong play.
News: Landry (wrist) is considered probable to play Wednesday against Toronto.
Impact: After going through a full practice Tuesday, Landry appears on track to return to action after missing the last five games. Before the injury, Landry was averaging 8.7 points and 5.8 rebounds in the month of January.
