Omer Asik C NO 4 Hrs

Asik scored 10 points (5-8 FG), while pulling down 11 rebounds, and a steal in 24 minutes.

Asik has been rebounding with ease over the past month and has been averaging 10 rebounds a game thus far in January. He still isn't able to rack up points, and is averaging under a block a game through the year, making him a less than desirable option at center. If you really need the rebounding feel free to pick him up, but there are likely players with more upside on the waiver wire.

Asik posted a double-double in 27 minutes Monday against the Knicks as he scored 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with 17 rebounds.

Asik dominated the glass Monday, but failed to record an assist in his third straight game. He is a solid source for rebounds and blocks, but don't expect a ton of production anywhere else.

Asik is quietly effective if you need rebounds. He is owned in about 50 percent of ESPN fantasy basketball leagues, so if you need rebounds you can count on Asik. He averages around a block a game for his career, but has been earning less than a block a game over his last seven games. If you need a big man to give you 10 rebounds and a block, Asik is your man.

Asik (back) is considered doubtful for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

Asik was scheduled to play in Friday's game against the Nuggets but ultimately re-aggravated his lower back during warmups and sat out his third-straight game. If Asik stays sidelined Saturday, he will likely be replaced by Alexis Ajinca.

Asik (back) re-aggravated his lower-back during warmups and has been ruled out for Friday's game.

Asik will be a late scratch Friday, meaning more minutes for Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis together in the frontcourt, and some run for Jeff Withey and Alexis Ajinca, but likely not enough to make them appealing plays in daily leagues. Consider Asik day-to-day.
