1/20/2018 John Wall, Was, PG
John Wall scored 16 points Friday, going 6 of 15 from the field, as the Washington Wizards defeated the Detroit Pistons 122-112. Wall grabbed three rebounds and had 11 assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 37:19 on the floor. He added one steal. Wall went 2 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Wall still has an issue with turnovers - he had five in this game and 32 over his last six contests - but his other numbers have remained high-end. The four-time All-Star has averaged 23.8 points, 10.8 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.7 steals during that stretch.
1/20/2018 Kelly Oubre Jr., Was, SF
Kelly Oubre Jr. scored a career-high 26 points Friday on 9-of-14 shooting as the Washington Wizards topped the Detroit Pistons 122-112. Oubre Jr. grabbed five rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +5 in his 31:23 on the floor. Oubre Jr. went 5 of 9 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The third-year wing's fantasy stock is on the rise, as he's averaged 16.3 points and gone 20 of 38 from beyond the arc during a seven-game streak of double-figure scoring performances. With Otto Porter Jr. not in the best of form, Oubre has a chance to continue to get big minutes as the Wizards' catalyst off the bench.
1/20/2018 Darren Collison, Ind, G
Darren Collison scored five points Friday on 1-of-9 shooting as the Indiana Pacers fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-86. Collison pulled down two rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 25:09 on the floor. He added one block and three steals.

Analysis: Collison had shot a sizzling 65.9 percent from the field while averaging 17.5 points over his previous four games, but couldn't get much of anything to fall in the second of a back-to-back set for Indiana. The former UCLA star gets a needed day off before the Pacers next take the court, though it'll be in a tough matchup Sunday in San Antonio.
1/20/2018 Victor Oladipo, Ind, G
Victor Oladipo scored 25 points Friday, going 11 of 26 from the field, as the Indiana Pacers lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-86. Oladipo grabbed five rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -4 in his 35:49 of playing time. He tacked on one steal. Oladipo went 1 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: The Pacers' offense didn't show up on this night, but Oladipo did his thing by producing a third straight game with at least 23 points and five rebounds. The dynamic guard is averaging 22 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.4 steals in eight games since returning from a knee injury earlier this month.
1/20/2018 Bojan Bogdanovic, Ind, G-F
Bojan Bogdanovic scored 11 points Friday on 5-of-12 shooting as the Indiana Pacers fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-86. Bogdanovic pulled down six rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 31:34 on the floor. He added two steals. Bogdanovic went 1 of 6 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Bogdanovic's fantasy value lies in his ability to make 3s, and he's hit at just a 28.2 percent clip in 19 games since Dec. 10. He hasn't produced a 20-point performance since Nov. 27 and remains a very high-risk play right now.
1/20/2018 Domantas Sabonis, Ind, F-C
Domantas Sabonis scored 15 points Friday on 6-of-10 shooting as the Indiana Pacers fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 99-86. Sabonis pulled down 14 rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 34:33 on the floor. He added two blocks.

Analysis: Sabonis has been a force on the glass of late, averaging 12.2 rebounds over his last five games - all starts in place of an injured Myles Turner. The second-year center is also averaging 15.1 points so far in January and continues to be a very good offseason pickup for the Pacers.
1/20/2018 Jordan Clarkson, LAL, G
Jordan Clarkson scored a season-high 33 points Friday on 14-of-19 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Indiana Pacers 99-86. Clarkson pulled down seven rebounds and dished out seven assists, tallying a plus-minus of +25 in his 33:38 on the floor. Clarkson went 3 of 6 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Clarkson was magnificent on a night the short-handed Lakers really needed him to be, plus he had both of the team's successful free throw attempts in game they finished an awful 2 of 14 from the stripe. This was also a performance hard to see coming, considering he came in averaging only 9.6 points on 38 percent shooting along with 2.6 rebounds and 2.6 assists over his previous seven outings.
1/20/2018 Larry Nance Jr., LAL, F-C
Larry Nance Jr. scored 10 points Friday, going 5 of 5 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Indiana Pacers 99-86. Nance Jr. pulled down 11 rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +22 in his 27:39 of playing time. He added two blocks and three steals.

Analysis: Nance is still dealing with a sore hip, but he's managed to record three double-doubles over his last six games. The third-year forward is averaging a respectable 9.8 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.6 steals in his past eight contests, though he still carries considerable risk due to the injury.
1/20/2018 Julius Randle, LAL, F-C
Julius Randle scored 14 points Friday on 7-of-12 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Indiana Pacers 99-86. Randle pulled down four rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 20:21 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.

Analysis: Randle played through a fractured tip of his finger he recently sustained, which could affect his performance going forward. He's generally been good since being put in the starting lineup in late December, averaging 15.4 points and 8.8 rebounds while shooting 54.1 percent from the floor over his last 12 games.
1/20/2018 Jerryd Bayless, Phi, G
Bayless won't play Saturday against the Bucks due to a sore left wrist.

Analysis: Bayless averages 8.3 points but has scored in single digits in nine of his past 10 games.
1/20/2018 Courtney Lee, NY, G-F
Courtney Lee scored 18 points Friday on 6-of-13 shooting as the New York Knicks defeated the Utah Jazz 117-115. Lee grabbed five rebounds and added an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +10 in his 35:44 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Lee went 2 of 3 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Lee is playing well enough that he's a prime candidate to be traded prior to the Feb. 8 deadline.
1/20/2018 Doug McDermott, NY, SF
Doug McDermott scored two points Friday on 1-of-3 shooting as the New York Knicks topped the Utah Jazz 117-115. McDermott pulled down three rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -8 in his 12:59 of playing time.
