NBA Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Deyonta Davis scored 14 points Wednesday on 6-of-7 shooting as the Memphis Grizzlies lost to the Dallas Mavericks 95-94. Davis pulled down seven rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 15:05 on the floor. He added two blocks.
Impact: Brandan Wright's latest injury has opened up some opportunity that Davis is taking advantage of. The 20-year-old has served as Memphis' backup center in each of the last two games and has four blocks during that small sample size. He's still quite far away from real fantasy relevance, though.
News: Ben McLemore scored six points Wednesday on 3-of-5 shooting as the Memphis Grizzlies lost to the Dallas Mavericks 95-94. McLemore grabbed three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 12:35 of playing time.
Impact:
News: James Ennis III did not score Wednesday, going 0 of 2 from the field, as the Memphis Grizzlies lost to the Dallas Mavericks 95-94. Ennis III grabbed one rebound and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -13 in his 12:46 on the floor. He added one steal.
Impact:
News: Jarell Martin scored four points Wednesday, going 1 of 4 from the field, as the Memphis Grizzlies fell to the Dallas Mavericks 95-94. Martin pulled down three rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 16:45 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.
Impact:
News: Dillon Brooks scored 13 points Wednesday, going 5 of 8 from the field, as the Memphis Grizzlies lost to the Dallas Mavericks 95-94. Brooks grabbed two rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 32:27 on the floor. He added one block. Brooks went 3 of 4 from behind the arc.
Impact:
News: Dennis Smith Jr. scored 17 points Wednesday, going 7 of 20 from the field, as the Dallas Mavericks topped the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Smith Jr. pulled down four rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -6 in his 26:52 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Smith Jr. went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.
Impact: Not the most efficient of performances, but Smith owners will take it after the rookie managed a combined 21 points on 9-of-36 shooting over his previous three games. The 20-year-old is still putting up a ton of shots, so there's plenty of upside to be found if he can gain a little more consistency.
News: Maxi Kleber scored six points Wednesday, going 3 of 4 from the field, as the Dallas Mavericks topped the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Kleber grabbed three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 12:43 of playing time.
Impact:
News: Yogi Ferrell scored three points Wednesday on 1-of-5 shooting as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Ferrell grabbed one rebound and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -19 in his 21:21 on the floor.
Impact:
News: Harrison Barnes scored 22 points Wednesday, going 9 of 19 from the field, as the Dallas Mavericks topped the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Barnes pulled down nine rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -1 in his 34:51 on the floor. Barnes went 1 of 3 from behind the arc.
Impact: Barnes capped his latest good fantasy night by banking in a game-winning 30-footer at the final buzzer. The best player on a bad Dallas team keeps on delivering for his owners, as he's averaged 22.6 points and 8.8 rebounds over an eight-game stretch.
News: Salah Mejri scored one point Wednesday as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Mejri grabbed five rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -8 in his 10:22 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.
Impact:
News: Wesley Matthews scored two points Wednesday, going 1 of 7 from the field, as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Matthews pulled down one rebound and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -3 in his 35:57 of playing time.
Impact: Matthews' two-game hot streak came to a crashing thud, which shouldn't come as a total surprise. Though the wildly inconsistent guard poured in 40 points over that run, he's shot just 32.5 percent from 3-point range while averaging 10.5 points over his last six games.
News: Dwight Powell scored eight points Wednesday on 3-of-4 shooting as the Dallas Mavericks topped the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Powell grabbed six rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +10 in his 18:44 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Impact:
News: J.J. Barea scored 10 points Wednesday on 4-of-10 shooting as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Barea grabbed one rebound and dished out 11 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +7 in his 24:05 of playing time. Barea went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.
Impact: The 33-year-old has shown some spring in his step lately, having averaged 15.3 points and 7.3 assists while going 8 of 19 from 3-point range over his last three games. Of the numerous problems the Mavs have had this season, the point guard position ranks quite low on the list.
News: Devin Harris scored 11 points Wednesday on 5-of-9 shooting as the Dallas Mavericks topped the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Harris grabbed two rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 17:53 of playing time. He added four steals.
Impact:
News: Dirk Nowitzki scored 13 points Wednesday on 5-of-12 shooting as the Dallas Mavericks topped the Memphis Grizzlies 95-94. Nowitzki grabbed eight rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +9 in his 28:11 on the floor. He added one block and two steals. Nowitzki went 3 of 6 from 3-point range.
Impact:
News: Nikola Vucevic scored 11 points Wednesday on 5-of-13 shooting as the Orlando Magic fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Vucevic grabbed 14 rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of 0 in his 33:34 of playing time. He added one block. Vucevic went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Impact: Vucevic has rediscovered his ability to clean the glass, as he's averaged 9.8 boards while posting three double-doubles over Orlando's last four games. The 7-footer's 7.8 rebounds per game are still his lowest in his six seasons with the Magic, but he's certainly eligible to improve on that mark.
News: Terrence Ross scored a season-high 22 points Wednesday, going 8 of 14 from the field, as the Orlando Magic fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Ross grabbed six rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 33:58 of playing time. Ross went 3 of 8 from behind the arc.
Impact: Ross hasn't been very useful from a fantasy perspective, though he's stepped it up some lately by averaging 12 points on 57.1 percent shooting along with 1.6 steals over his last seven games. An improved 3-point stroke has led to the surge, as he's connected at a 41.9 percent success rate over that span.
News: D.J. Augustin scored six points Wednesday on 2-of-3 shooting as the Orlando Magic lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Augustin grabbed two rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -5 in his 12:46 on the floor. Augustin went 1 of 1 from 3-point range.
Impact:
News: Arron Afflalo scored three points Wednesday on 1-of-1 shooting as the Orlando Magic fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Afflalo grabbed two rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -7 in his 10:52 of playing time. He added one block. Afflalo went 1 of 1 from behind the arc.
Impact:
News: Marreese Speights scored eight points Wednesday on 3-of-8 shooting as the Orlando Magic lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Speights did not grab a rebound but had an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 11:20 of playing time. Speights went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.
Impact:
News: Aaron Gordon scored 26 points Wednesday on 11-of-18 shooting as the Orlando Magic fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Gordon pulled down nine rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 36:44 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Gordon went 2 of 8 from 3-point range.
Impact: A positive sign after Gordon had slipped to a 13.2 points-per-game average over his previous five outings. The gifted 22-year-old's early-season perimeter success has gone away, however, as he's a poor 9 of 39 (23.1 percent) from beyond the arc in his last six games.
News: Evan Fournier scored 19 points Wednesday, going 6 of 13 from the field, as the Orlando Magic fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Fournier grabbed one rebound and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 34:05 on the floor. Fournier went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Impact:
News: Elfrid Payton scored 10 points Wednesday on 4-of-9 shooting as the Orlando Magic fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Payton grabbed four rebounds and had 13 assists, tallying a plus-minus of -1 in his 34:23 on the floor. He added one block and two steals.
Impact: Payton had been rather underwhelming lately, having averaged just seven points and five assists while shooting 36.4 percent from the field over his previous four contests. Wednesday's fine effort may turn out to be a tease, but the young point guard is getting it done on the defensive end with eight steals in his last three contests.
News: Bismack Biyombo scored four points Wednesday, going 2 of 3 from the field, as the Orlando Magic lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Biyombo grabbed three rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -6 in his 14:22 of playing time. He added one block.
Impact:
News: Jonathon Simmons scored nine points Wednesday, going 4 of 9 from the field, as the Orlando Magic fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-118. Simmons pulled down three rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -11 in his 17:56 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Simmons went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
Impact:
News: Karl-Anthony Towns scored 18 points Wednesday, going 7 of 11 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Orlando Magic 124-118. Towns pulled down 13 rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +7 in his 36:07 on the floor. Towns went 2 of 3 from behind the arc.
Impact: Towns has now failed to hit the 20-point mark in four straight games - an eternity by his standards - but did collect his 14th double-double in Minnesota's 18th contest. He has become a bigger threat from the perimeter, however, having gone 11 of 22 from 3-point range over his last six games.
News: Tyus Jones did not score Wednesday on 0-of-2 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Orlando Magic 124-118. Jones pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -6 in his 10:40 on the floor.
Impact:
News: Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points Wednesday, going 6 of 15 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Orlando Magic 124-118. Wiggins grabbed six rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +19 in his 40:40 of playing time. He added one block and one steal. Wiggins went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Impact: Wiggins did enough damage from the foul line to reach the 20-point mark for just the second time in his last six games. Jimmy Butler's resurgence has contributed to a slight decline in the super talent's numbers, as he's averaged a somewhat ordinary 16 points and an unimpressive 3.3 rebounds during that aforementioned time frame.
News: Jimmy Butler matched a season high with 26 points Wednesday on 10-of-19 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Orlando Magic 124-118. Butler grabbed three rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +15 in his 36:17 of playing time. He added two steals. Butler went 3 of 4 from behind the arc.
Impact: Those who may have bought low on Butler following his disappointing start are beginning to reap the rewards. The stat-sheet stuffer is now 9 of 18 from 3-point range over his last four games and is riding a seven-game tear in which he's averaged 19.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 2.3 steals.
News: Gorgui Dieng scored one point Wednesday, going 0 of 3 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Orlando Magic 124-118. Dieng grabbed three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 11:53 on the floor.
Impact:
News: Nemanja Bjelica went scoreless Wednesday on 0-of-3 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Orlando Magic 124-118. Bjelica did not grab a rebound nor have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -16 in his 7:51 on the floor. He added one steal.
Impact:
News: Jeff Teague scored 22 points Wednesday on 6-of-11 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Orlando Magic 124-118. Teague grabbed three rebounds and had 11 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +12 in his 37:20 of playing time. He added one block and two steals. Teague went 1 of 2 from 3-point range.
Impact: Teague can be prone to some clunkers like his 3-point, 1-of-7 shooting effort Sunday against Detroit, but he's been generally solid of late. He's now delivered 15 points or more in five of his last six games and owns season averages of 7.5 assists and 1.8 steals, with Wednesday's performance his sixth double-double in his past 13 outings.
News: Taj Gibson scored 24 points Wednesday, going 8 of 11 from the field, as the Minnesota Timberwolves topped the Orlando Magic 124-118. Gibson grabbed nine rebounds and had two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +21 in his 40:06 on the floor. He added one block and two steals.
Impact: This one was impossible to see coming, as Gibson had just one point in 24 minutes Monday at Charlotte and was averaging 9.6 per game for the season. Though generally a secondary option in Minnesota's talented starting five, the trusty veteran has been making a decent contribution lately with averages of 12.5 points and 8.6 rebounds over his last 10 games.
News: Jamal Crawford scored nine points Wednesday on 3-of-10 shooting as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Orlando Magic 124-118. Crawford pulled down one rebound and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -8 in his 11:46 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Crawford went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.

Impact:
News: Donovan Mitchell scored four points Wednesday on 1-of-10 shooting as the Utah Jazz topped the Chicago Bulls 110-80. Mitchell pulled down five rebounds and dished out seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of +18 in his 26:12 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Impact: Mitchell's run of seven straight double-figure scoring games was snapped, but he didn't let that affect him in other areas as he contributed with seven assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block. The rookie is 7 for 29 from the field his last two games and has shot under 50 percent in five straight games.
News: Ricky Rubio scored 10 points Wednesday on 4-of-10 shooting as the Utah Jazz topped the Chicago Bulls 110-80. Rubio pulled down three rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +17 in his 23:31 of playing time. He added one block and two steals. Rubio went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
Impact:
News: Alec Burks scored 15 points Wednesday, going 5 of 10 from the field, as the Utah Jazz defeated the Chicago Bulls 110-80. Burks grabbed two rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +12 in his 25:02 on the floor. He tacked on two steals. Burks went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Impact:
News: Paul George scored 20 points Wednesday, going 8 of 19 from the field, as the Oklahoma City Thunder topped the Golden State Warriors 108-91. George pulled down 11 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 39:45 on the floor. He added two blocks and four steals. George went 4 of 10 from 3-point range.
Impact: George's defense was more the story in this one, but the standout two-way forward still made his presence felt from a fantasy perspective. He's been the Thunder's best player over the past few weeks, producing stellar averages of 26 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.8 steals in his last six games. He's also a sizzling 26 of 53 (49.1 percent) from beyond the arc during that time frame.
News: Robin Lopez scored 15 points Wednesday, going 6 of 10 from the field, as the Chicago Bulls fell to the Utah Jazz 110-80. Lopez pulled down four rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -19 in his 24:52 on the floor.

Impact: The double-double was Adams' first since Halloween, though he's had between 14 and 16 points in all three games since coming back from a calf injury that sidelined him just over a week. The dependable center is 17 of 25 from the field during that stretch and is shooting a terrific 65.8 percent for the season.

He's 4 for 15 from deep the past two contests after a 7-for-13 showing at Orlando on Nov. 18. Hood still struggles with consistency from game to game, but he's averaging 17.5 points so this seems like his breakout season.

Impact: Favors bounced back from a disappointing performance to score over 20 for the second time in three games.

Impact: Clearly playing with a little extra juice in a head-to-head matchup with former teammate and now-rival Kevin Durant, Westbrook carried the Thunder with a performance reminiscent of last season's MVP run. The dynamic guard came in mired in what could be considered a bit of a slump, having averaged 20 points on 33.6 percent shooting over his previous seven games, but this effort proves there's nothing for owners to fret over.
