Samuel Dalembert C NY 1 Day
Dalembert scored 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 FT), with 13 rebounds, two blocks and two steals in 25 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.
Dalembert stepped up big for the Knicks inside, and he did it while playing fewer minutes than the bulk of the other starters. He's unreliable from a fantasy perspective, but monitor his upcoming games.
Jose Calderon PG NY 1 Day
Calderon scored 21 points (7-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt), with 10 rebounds and four assists in 38 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.
This game truly came out of nowhere. Calderon had been off to a slow start to the season, but lit it up from three point land in this loss. He's not reliable at this point for fantasy owners, but he's worth keeping an eye on.
Danilo Gallinari F DEN 1 Day
Gallinari left Wednesday's game with left knee soreness and will not return, The Denver Post reports.
Gallinari was scoreless in nine minutes before exiting the game. It's not clear what his status will be moving forward, but the soreness is in the same knee that sidelined him all of last season.
Al Horford PF/C ATL 1 Day
Horford scored 23 points (11-16 FG, 0-1 3P, 1-2 FT) with nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
He hasn't been able to get going so far, averaging just 14.1 points and what would be a career-low 6.6 boards per game even after Wednesday's big night, so hopefully for Horford's fantasy owners the performance was a sign he's returning to his usual healthy form.
Jeff Teague PG ATL 1 Day
Teague scored a team-high 24 points (7-14 FG, 2-3 3P, 8-8 FT) with 12 assists, three rebounds and a steal in 34 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.
Although it's just his second double-double of the year, Teague has now scored at least 23 points in each of his last four games. The Hawks' point guard seems poised for a career season.
Lou Williams G TOR 1 Day
Williams scored 22 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3P, 6-6 FT) with three steals and two assists in 26 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
Is anybody going to slow this guy down? Williams is now averaging 24.3 points in 25 minutes a night over his last four games, and is staking a string early claim to being in the Sixth Man of the Year discussion.
Greivis Vasquez G TOR 1 Day
Vasquez scored 21 points (8-12 FG, 3-6 3P, 2-2 FT) with three assists and two rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
He'd had a quiet start to the year, with Lou Williams becoming the Raptors' go-to back court option this season off the bench, but at least for one night Vasquez caught fire from the floor. It would likely take a Kyle Lowry injury for Vasquez to have consistent fantasy value, though.
LeBron James SF CLE 1 Day
James had 29 points (7-14FG, 1-5 3Pt, 14-17FT), with 10 rebounds, eight assists and three steals in 36 minutes during Wednesday's victory over the Wizards.
This was James's third straight game shooting at least 50 percent from the field, and his second game in a row scoring 29 points. Continue to expect this elite production on a nightly basis from James.
DeMar DeRozan SG/SF TOR 1 Day
DeRozan scored 27 points (8-16 FG, 2-3 3P, 9-9 FT) with three rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
He's scored 20 or more in three straight games, and after going 2-for-13 from beyond the arc to begin the season DeRozan's showing flashes of adding the three-pointer back into his arsenal.
Kyle Lowry PG TOR 1 Day
Lowry scored 14 points (3-12 FG, 2-6 3P, 6-8 FT) with 13 assists, six rebounds and a steal in 33 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
The Raptors' point guard struggled with his shot, but was still plenty productive. It's just Lowry's second double-double of the year (plus a triple-double) but his overall numbers are comparable or even ahead of last season's career pace.
