K. Oubre - SF
Steve Kerr said that Kelly Oubre hurt his wrist during Tuesday's practice, taking a hard fall after a dunk.
Kerr said that Oubre's fall was "pretty scary," but added that Oubre is "sore more than anything." Considering it's an actual injury, there's a chance that he'll need to skip Thursday's game in Phoenix as well, which would likely result in another start for Kent Bazemore. Stay tuned.

E. Kanter - C
Enes Kanter notched his fourth straight double-double during Wednesday's win over the Dubs with 11 points, 14 rebounds, one block and two turnovers in 23 minutes.
This is what Kanter does, and as long as Jusuf Nurkic (wrist) is out, he'll be posting mid-round value with plenty of double-doubles. Carmelo Anthony kept his hot streak going in 32 minutes off the bench, going 8-of-13 from the field and 4-of-5 from the stripe for 22 points, two rebounds, four assists, two triples and one turnover in the win.

R. Covington - PF
Robert Covington had another good game on Wednesday, registering 15 points (5-of-12 FG, 2-of-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, three triples, two steals and three swats across 38 turnover-less minutes in a win over the Warriors.
This is just the second time this season that Covington has recorded double-figures in the scoring department in back-to-back games, and if he's able to do it again on Thursday vs. Sacramento, that'll be the first time this year he's scored over nine points in three consecutive games. While the scoring has been frustratingly inconsistent from RoCo this season, he's managed to keep his value afloat in the mid-rounds thanks to his triples (1.3), steals (1.6) and swats (1.1), and if the scoring ever comes around that would help catapult him to top-40 status.

G. Trent - SG
Gary Trent Jr. went 6-of-16 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line for 15 points in Wednesday's win over the Warriors.
It wasn't Trent Jr.'s most efficient game, but he added four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one steal in his 40 minutes of floor time without committing a single turnover. He's been a mid-round stud since entering the starting unit, and with C.J. McCollum (foot) still not close, he should be rostered in more than just 60% of Yahoo! Leagues.

B. Hield - SG
Buddy Hield played through his sprained ankle on Wednesday and hit 11-of-15 shots and seven 3-pointers for 29 points, six rebounds, six assists and a steal with zero turnovers in a whopping season-high 42 minutes of a 123-120 win over the Lakers.
Wow. We didn't even know if Hield would play tonight but he told his coach he wanted to go and had one of his best games of the season. Buddy is on fire right now and scored 30 points with eight 3-pointers in his previous game on Sunday. It's hard to believe he didn't score a point in the first quarter tonight, but he and De'Aaron Fox combined to go 0-for-6 in the opening stanza, but both bounced back once the second quarter got underway. Hield has gone through some weird streaks this season but is in the zone right now, averaging 29.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 7.5 3-pointers over his last two games, hitting 21-of-32 shots over that stretch. Hopefully, he can keep it going against the Blazers on Thursday night before heading into the All-Star break.

D. Fox - PG
De'Aaron Fox hit 9-of-18 shots and a 3-pointer for 23 points, eight assists, three steals and seven turnovers before fouling out of Wednesday's 123-120 win over the Lakers.
Fox had a pretty good game after being held scoreless in the first quarter and while the turnovers and foul out are a bit of a buzzkill, he helped get his team a big win and will try to do it again on Thursday against the Blazers before heading into the All-Star break. Hopefully, the turnovers will disappear tomorrow and he'll be able to stay out of foul trouble against Damian Lillard.

D. Lillard - PG
Damian Lillard threw daggers in the Warriors with clutch buckets down the stretch of Wednesday's 108-106 win, finishing with 22 points, five boards, six dimes, three triples, two steals and five turnovers in 36 minutes.
Lillard had a tough time getting his shot to fall for much of the game (6-of-17 FG, 7-of-8 FT), but he came through when it mattered most, drilling a clutch triple late in the fourth to tie up the game — and then he hit a dagger 3 with 13.7 seconds left to put them up for good. In his final act, he took a charge from Draymond Green to steal Golden State's final possession, and that was all she wrote for the Dubs. Dame Time.

K. Bazemore - SF
Kent Bazemore hit 5-of-12 shots for 12 points, six rebounds, one assist, two triples, one steal and one block across 31 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Portland.
Bazemore got the spot-start tonight with Kelly Oubre (wrist) unavailable, and if Oubre needs to sit out Thursday's game as well, Baze will make for a quality streamer. Damion Lee's minutes weren't impacted all that much sans Oubre, and he finished with 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting to go with four rebounds and two triples over 18 minutes.
