Impact:
News: Labissiere is questionable for Wednesday due to a strained shoulder.
Impact: Labissiere, who has been solid of late, started Monday and played 28 minutes. It's uncertain when or how he got this injury, or if the Kings are just looking to give him some rest.
News: Redick could miss two weeks with a left leg injury.
Impact: The 76ers say Redick was hurt Monday during the fourth quarter of their victory over Toronto, and X-rays after the game were negative. However, an MRI on Tuesday revealed bone edema and a small cortical crack in the fibular head of the leg.
News: Speights (personal) won't play Wednesday against the Timberwolves.
Impact: Speights averages 7.4 points and 2.6 boards in 13.3 minutes.
News: Ennis is questionable for Wednesday's visit from the Knicks due to a right calf injury.

News: Gasol is questionable for Wednesday's visit to Brooklyn due to a sprained right wrist.
Impact: The injury may be the reason why Gasol has averaged 6.5 points and shot 27.8 percent (10 of 36) in the last four games.
News: Iguodala (left calf contusion) is questionable for Wednesday's game in Chicago.
Impact: Iguodala hasn't been a very fantasy-relevant player this season, but he'll still get plenty of minutes when healthy due to his importance to the Warriors on the defensive end.
News: Green is questionable for Wednesday's visit to Chicago due to a sore right shoulder.
Impact: Green has been dealing with an injury to the shoulder for a while now, but since returning in late December he's collected double-digit rebounds in nine of 14 games. Green has also stepped up his scoring of late, averaging 15.2 points over his last five contests.
News: Nance Jr. is questionable for Wednesday's game at Oklahoma City due to a right hip pointer.
Impact: Initially questionable to play Monday in Memphis after sustaining a cut above his right eye Saturday at Dallas, Nance Jr. then hurt his hip against the Grizzlies but still managed to notch his second double-double in three games with 15 points and 11 rebounds. The third-year forward is averaging 10.8 points and 8.8 boards in the last five contests while shooting 23 of 36 (63.9 percent).

Impact: VanVleet has played well in January, averaging 11.3 points in eight games.
News: Harden (hamstring) is listed as questionable in the Rockets' game notes for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.
Impact: This is the first time that Harden has appeared on the Rockets' injury report as anything but out since he suffered the hamstring strain at the start of the new year. Harden will have Tuesday and Wednesday practices to test out the hamstring before a final decision is made Thursday, and Houston will likely provide update's on the All-Star's health as necessary. If Harden does not return Thursday, Saturday's rematch with the Warriors would be his next chance to return.
News: Morris didn't practice Tuesday due to an ankle injury.
Impact: It's unclear if he'll be ready when the Wizards start a five-game road trip Wednesday in Charlotte.
News: Clint Capela scored 14 points Monday, going 6 of 10 from the field, as the Houston Rockets fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 113-102. Capela grabbed seven rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -10 in his 28:06 of playing time. He added two blocks.

News: Wesley Johnson scored 11 points Monday on 4-of-8 shooting as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Houston Rockets 113-102.

The standout forward has also stepped up his scoring of late, averaging 15.2 points over his last five contests.

Impact: Joseph had 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting along with six assists Sunday in Phoenix, so he's going very well right now. Keep in mind that both of those games were blowout Indiana wins, and he usually doesn't put up those kind of numbers in closer games.
News: Isaiah Thomas scored 19 points Monday, going 8 of 21 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors 118-108. Thomas grabbed one rebound and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 31:59 of playing time. Thomas went 1 of 7 from behind the arc.
Impact: Clearly still rusty from his long layoff from a hip injury, Thomas has shot a brutal 27.7 percent (13 for 47) from the floor and gone 2 of 18 from 3-point range while averaging just 10.7 points over his last three games. The positive is the 32 minutes were a season-high, and owners who remain patient should be rewarded when he does return to form.
News: Tristan Thompson scored two points Monday, going 1 of 4 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors 118-108. Thompson pulled down eight rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 14:48 of playing time. He added one steal.
Impact: Thompson is essentially a one-category guy in his current role, but he has recorded at least seven rebounds in seven straight games and is averaging 8.3 during that time frame. The former starter still won't help out much in other areas, however.
News: Derrick Favors scored 16 points Monday, going 8 of 12 from the field, as the Utah Jazz lost to the Indiana Pacers 109-94. Favors pulled down seven rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -30 in his 29:27 of playing time. He added two blocks and three steals.
Impact: Favors bounced back after being held to five points Friday in Charlotte, which ended an eight-game streak of double-digit scoring efforts. He continues to be a solid, mid-level fantasy center with averages of 13.8 points and 8.2 rebounds over his last 10 games and 1.7 blocks over his past six.
News: Rodney Hood scored 15 points Monday, going 6 of 14 from the field, as the Utah Jazz fell to the Indiana Pacers 109-94. Hood pulled down two rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 21:00 on the floor. Hood went 2 of 6 from behind the arc.
Impact: Hood hit the 15-point mark for a second straight game, but he hasn't exactly been lighting it up lately. The streaky wing is shooting just 34.9 percent overall and 27.7 percent on 3-point tries while averaging a so-so 11.4 points over his last seven contests.
News: Joe Ingles went scoreless Monday on 0-of-1 shooting as the Utah Jazz fell to the Indiana Pacers 109-94. Ingles did not grab a rebound but had an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -20 in his 20:03 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.
Impact: Ingles, who had just two points on 1-of-6 shooting Friday in Charlotte, has really seen his production nose-dive over the past month. The 3-point specialist has scored in double figures in just one of his last 12 games, a stretch in which he's 14 of 49 (28.6 percent) from beyond the arc.
News: Victor Oladipo scored 28 points Monday on 9-of-16 shooting as the Indiana Pacers topped the Utah Jazz 109-94. Oladipo pulled down six rebounds and had six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +27 in his 34:49 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Oladipo went 5 of 8 from behind the arc.
Impact: Oladipo is shooting a scorching 52.2 percent from the floor while averaging 21.3 points, five rebounds, 4.3 assists and three steals in six games since returning from a knee injury that is clearly no longer an issue. Keep rolling with the All-Star candidate, who's had few letdown performances this season.
News: Kevin Durant scored 32 points Monday on 9-of-16 shooting as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 118-108. Durant grabbed five rebounds and dished out eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +9 in his 34:49 on the floor. He added one block and three steals. Durant went 4 of 6 from behind the arc.
Impact: The time off has clearly done Durant some good, as he's been superhuman since coming back from a calf strain that kept him out of three games earlier this month. In four games since returning, the perennial All-Star has shot 62.5 percent from the field while averaging 30.8 points, 5.8 assists and 5.3 rebounds.
News: Thaddeus Young scored 17 points Monday, going 7 of 10 from the field, as the Indiana Pacers topped the Utah Jazz 109-94. Young grabbed four rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of +15 in his 35:38 on the floor. He added two blocks. Young went 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

Impact: This is what fantasy players should expect from the soon-to-be 36-year-old at this point, someone who can contribute in several categories but rarely excels in any. As evidence, Wade is averaging 10.8 points, five rebounds and 4.3 assists over his last four games.
News: LeBron James scored 32 points Monday on 12-of-18 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Golden State Warriors 118-108. James grabbed eight rebounds and dished out six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -14 in his 36:15 of playing time. He added four blocks and three steals.
Impact: The Cavaliers folded in the second half of this marquee matchup, but James was his usual dominant self throughout the contest. The four-time MVP continues to have one of his best fantasy seasons in quite some time with averages of 27.3 points, 8.8 assists, 8.0 rebounds and 1.72 steals per game.
News: Darren Collison scored six points Monday on 3-of-5 shooting as the Indiana Pacers topped the Utah Jazz 109-94. Collison grabbed three rebounds and had six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +13 in his 24:57 on the floor. He tacked on two steals.
Impact: After racking up 41 points on 17-of-25 shooting over his previous two games, Collison was more of distributor in this one. That's usually the role the veteran point guard takes on, though he's still averaging a respectable 14.6 points, four assists and 1.4 steals over his last 10 outings.
News: Stephen Curry scored 23 points Monday, going 8 of 15 from the field, as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 118-108. Curry pulled down four rebounds and had eight assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +13 in his 33:24 on the floor. He tacked on two steals. Curry went 4 of 8 from behind the arc.
Impact: Curry's once-tender ankle again didn't seem to much of a problem as he shot 50 percent or better for a seventh consecutive game. The franchise guard is averaging a stellar 31.9 points, 6.4 assists and 5.4 rebounds while making 39 of 77 attempts (50.6 percent) from 3-point range during that stretch.
News: Marc Gasol scored 17 points Monday on 6-of-14 shooting as the Memphis Grizzlies topped the Los Angeles Lakers 123-114. Gasol grabbed seven rebounds and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +6 in his 34:26 of playing time. He added one block and one steal.
Impact: Though unable to register a fourth straight double-double, Gasol is back to producing at his customary levels by averaging 19.3 points, 9.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.8 blocks over those four games. The lone negative during that stretch has been 3-point shooting, as he's gone 4 of 16 from beyond the arc.
News: Kevin Love scored 17 points Monday on 5-of-9 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors 118-108. Love grabbed seven rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 26:46 on the floor. He added one block and two steals. Love went 3 of 5 from behind the arc.
Impact: Love shot the ball well for a second straight game and appears to breaking out of a recent funk. He entered Friday's matchup at Indiana having shot 27.9 percent from the field while averaging a below-norm 10.5 points over a four-game stretch, and he had gone just 8 of 26 (30.8 percent) from 3-point range over his previous five contests.

Impact: Davis remains a work in progress, but five blocks in 14 minutes is quite impressive and offers a glimpse of his talent. The 21-year-old has performed well when given time, but unfortunately regular minutes have still been hard to come by at this stage of his career.

Impact: Despite dealing with a sore shoulder, Sabonis is having a terrific January with averages of 16 points and 8.7 rebounds in seven games this month. With Myles Turner out for at least three more games, the 21-year-old is well worth using as a fantasy center option.
News: Donovan Mitchell scored 23 points Monday, going 8 of 16 from the field, as the Utah Jazz fell to the Indiana Pacers 109-94. Mitchell grabbed two rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -18 in his 32:50 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Mitchell went 2 of 8 from behind the arc.

Impact: After going 4 of 15 from the field for a combined eight points over his previous two games, Brooks almost couldn't miss in matching a career-high scoring effort. The rookie had reached double figures in just one of his previous eight contests, so prospective fantasy players may want to wait and see if he can build off this performance.

Impact: Griffin had one of his best scoring performances of the season and his highest total since he netted 33 at Sacramento on Nov. 25. He may want to cool it on the 3-pointers though since he's 9 for 35 in the past eight games.
News: Gerald Green scored 11 points Monday, going 4 of 14 from the field, as the Houston Rockets lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 113-102.

Impact: Though he's managed only 27 points over his last two games, Evans is still averaging 23.4 in his past 11 and just missed recording his first triple-double in nearly three years. The resurgent veteran has been putting up excellent all-around numbers for nearly all of this comeback season, so there's no reason to keep riding a hand that's been hot for quite some time now.

Kuzma grabbed seven rebounds and dished out five assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 28:39 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Kuzma went 4 of 8 from behind the arc.
Impact: Kuzma seems to be adjusting to coming back off the bench, as he put up 18 points and 10 rebounds while going 8 of 13 from the field Saturday in Dallas. Though he's proven to be more valuable fantasy-wise opening games, he's still been a useful performer in whatever role he's asked to take.
