Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge: Picks up scoring in win vs. Minnesota

News: Aldridge went for 29 points (12-20 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 36 minutes during a 122-114 victory against the Timberwolves on Tuesday.

Aldridge was back to his normal self Tuesday after he had averaged just 13.7 points per game in the previous three outings. He helped pace the squad in a high-scoring game along with Kawhi Leonard, who had 34 points, as no other Spurs player had more than 14 points. The 20 shots taken tied a season high for the 11th-year power forward. We'll see if he stays aggressive against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Spurs' Kawhi Leonard: Goes for fourth straight 30-point game
Kawhi Leonard, SF, SA
2:00 AM
News: Leonard recorded 34 points (12-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one steal across 39 minutes during a 122-114 win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday.

Leonard's 34 points were a game high as he reached the 30-point mark for the fourth consecutive outing. His averages over the last five games are eye-popping, at 30.4 points on 60.7 percent shooting, 4.4 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.4 three-pointers on 46.2 percent from behind the three-point line and 1.4 steals per game. We'll see if he can get to his fifth consecutive 30-point game in another favorable matchup against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Andrew Wiggins
Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Attempts season-low eight shots in loss to Spurs
Andrew Wiggins, SF, MIN
2:00 AM
News: Wiggins produced 10 points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 38 minutes during a 122-114 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday.

Wiggins was passive in a tough matchup against San Antonio as he attempted a season-low eight shots, even falling short of Ricky Rubio's nine shot attempts. The 10 points were his lowest total since Jan. 3 when he managed just eight points against the 76ers. Wiggins will still have an off game here and there but for the most part he has been fantastic this season. He'll look to bounce back against the Clippers on Thursday.

Kenneth Faried
Nuggets' Kenneth Faried: Scores 20 points in second straight start
Kenneth Faried, PF, DEN
1:45 AM
News: Faried scored 20 points (9-10 FG, 2-4 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes of action during Tuesday's 127-121 victory over the Lakers.

Making his second straight start, Faried produced a similarly effective performance, reaching the 20-point mark again to give him four such games this season. The Nuggets, who have now won three straight, could stick with a similar starting frontcourt for the time being. Though Faried's rebounding totals could take a hit while playing alongside the surging Nikola Jokic, he seems to have taken well to his reinsertion into the first unit and could be a solid fantasy asset until things change again.

Nikola Jokic
Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Posts huge double-double versus Lakers
Nikola Jokic, PF, DEN
1:35 AM
News: Jokic posted 29 points (12-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 15 rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 127-121 victory over the Lakers.

Following up a huge double-double on Monday, Jokic repeated the feat by grabbing his highest total of rebounds in nearly a month and coming within two points of a new career high in scoring. Jokic has been outstanding over his last nine games, averaging 22.7 points, 10.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists, and he is quickly becoming one of the premier big men in the NBA in terms of multi-faceted production.

Brandon Ingram
Lakers' Brandon Ingram: Produces solid line in start Tuesday
Brandon Ingram, SF, LAL
1:25 AM
News: Ingram produced 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT) five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 127-121 loss to the Nuggets.

Starting for Luol Deng, who is out indefinitely with a wrist injury, Ingram saw his most court time in a month and produced a solid stat line as one of the only starters to see a heavy workload. Ingram has shown the ability to contribute in multiple categories, and while he is still growing into his niche in the NBA, a prolonged run in the starting lineup could help him draw the ire of fantasy owners.

Doug McDermott
Bulls' Doug McDermott: Follows big game with seven-point outing
Doug McDermott, SF, CHI
1:05 AM
News: McDermott registered seven points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists across 22 minutes during a 99-98 loss to the Mavericks on Tuesday.

McDermott followed up his 31-point outing on Sunday with a disappointing seven points against Dallas. He struggled with his shot and failed to get to the free throw line after attempting 11 free throws in the 31-point outburst. Other than the one big game, he has played pretty poorly lately. After he scored in double figures in five straight games from late December to early January, McDermott has now scored in single digits in five of the last six games.

Jimmy Butler
Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Nearly triple-doubles in loss to Mavericks
Jimmy Butler, SF, CHI
1:00 AM
News: Butler produced 24 points (5-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 14-16 FT), 12 assists, nine rebounds and one steal across 40 minutes during a 99-98 loss to the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Butler set a new season high with 12 dimes and fell just one rebound shy of his first triple-double of the season. Since returning from a two-game absence due to an illness, Butler is returning strong and balanced value, with averages of 22.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 8.0 assists and 2.3 steals per game over the last three outings. He'll get a few days off before looking to continue his great season against the Hawks on Friday.

Dirk Nowitzki
Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki: Tallies first double-double of season
Dirk Nowitzki, PF, DAL
1:00 AM
News: Nowitzki contributed 10 points (3-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 27 minutes during a 99-98 victory against the Bulls on Tuesday.

Nowitzki struggled a bit offensively but made up for it by picking up his first double-double season. He has upped his averages recently with at least 27 minutes played in the last six games. Over the last five, he is averaging 16.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting, 6.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.2 three-pointers and 1.0 block per game in that stretch.

Terrence Ross
Raptors' Terrence Ross: Scores 15 off bench Tuesday
Terrence Ross, SF, TOR
1/17/2017
News: Ross scored 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt) while adding four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Nets.

Lucas Nogueira left the game early due to a concussion, and as a result the Raptors used a smaller lineup most of the night, allowing Ross to hit the 30-minute mark for just the third time in nine January contests. He's been heating up again from downtown, going 9-for-19 (47.4 percent) from three-point range over the last three games, but even when his shot is falling, Ross doesn't contribute enough in other categories to be a reliable fantasy asset in most formats.
