Bucks' O.J. Mayo: Scoreless over 18 minutes in start at point guard
O.J. Mayo, SG, MIL
10:39 AM
News: Mayo (hamstring) tallied no points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six assists, and one rebound across 18 minutes in Tuesday's 112-111 win over the Celtics.

Coach Jason Kidd made major alterations to his starting lineup in advance of Tuesday's game, ushering Mayo in for Michael Carter-Williams at point guard and Miles Plumlee for Greg Monroe at center. Both Mayo and Plumlee (18 minutes), who have primarily come off the bench this season, still ended up seeing far less court time than Carter-Williams (26 minutes) and Monroe (30 minutes), so Mayo, who was made his return Tuesday from an 11-game absence, won't make for a strong waiver claim even if he maintains hold on the starting job.

Tyreke Evans
Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Expected to undergo season-ending knee surgery
Tyreke Evans, PG, NO
10:29 AM
News: Evans is expected to undergo surgery on his right knee in the near future, which would likely end his season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Evans hasn't played since Jan. 25 after experiencing recurring tendinitis in the knee, and the Pelicans had planned to reevaluate his condition after the All-Star break. It appears he hasn't progressed in his recovery since being shut down, and with the Pelicans seemingly out of the running for the postseason, Evans has little incentive to play through the injury at less than 100 percent health. If Evans indeed goes under the knife again, it would mark his third procedure on the right knee since May, and it's fair to wonder if the 26-year-old will ever be able to stay on the court for a full season over the remainder of his career. The Pelicans were said to be shopping Evans with the hope of finding a suitor for his services, but the prospect of a season-ending surgery will end those discussions.

Marcus Thornton
Rockets' Marcus Thornton: Scores 15 points in 25 minutes Tuesday
Marcus Thornton, SG, HOU
3:55 AM
News: Thornton tallied 15 points (5-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, one rebound, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during the Rockets' 123-110 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.

Thornton is putting up 10.5 points, two rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 threes, 0.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 18 minutes per contest through four games this month. These numbers are nearly identical to his season averages, and the 28-year-old forward is typically hit-or-miss in his role as a scorer off the Rockets' bench.

Analysis: 

Ty Lawson
Rockets' Ty Lawson: Scoreless in 16 minutes Tuesday
Ty Lawson, PG, HOU
3:49 AM
News: Lawson missed all four of his field goal attempts while handing out one assist in 16 minutes during the Rockets' 123-110 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.

With averages of 5.2 points, two assists, one rebound, and 0.2 steals in 19 minutes per appearance over the last five games, Lawson continues to be one of the most disappointing draft picks in fantasy. The 28-year-old point guard is producing career-lows across almost every statistical category, and barring injuries or a trade, it's tough to picture Lawson turning things around this season.

James Harden
Rockets' James Harden: Scores 37 points Tuesday
James Harden, SG, HOU
3:39 AM
News: Harden (hand) went off for 37 points (10-21 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 11-13 FT), five rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block in 40 minutes during the Rockets' 123-110 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.

Harden has been hot lately, with averages of 30.6 points, 7.8 assists, 6.6 rebounds, 4.2 threes, 2.8 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 37 minutes per contest over the last five games. He hasn't been missing much from the outside, as evidenced by his 47 percent mark from beyond the arc over the same time span. Nevertheless, he has also been earning 10.4 free-throw attempts per game, so he clearly isn't falling in love with the jumper or forgetting to attack the basket. The only blemish of late is that he still turning the ball over a whopping four times per matchup.

Andre Iguodala
Warriors' Andre Iguodala: Posts 12-6-6 line in 31 minutes Tuesday
Andre Iguodala, SG, GS
3:29 AM
News: Iguodala produced 12 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, and six assists in 31 minutes during the Warriors' 123-110 win versus the Rockets on Tuesday.

Iguodala has earned 30 minutes or more 16 times this season, and he is among the most well-rounded reserves in basketball. It's tough for him to put up a ton in terms of raw stats when he's coming off the bench, but Iguodala is still a jack of all trades who has significantly improved his ability to hit the open outside shot these last few years.

Stephen Curry
Warriors' Stephen Curry: Posts 35 points, nine assists Tuesday
Stephen Curry, PG, GS
3:03 AM
News: Curry recorded 35 points (12-24 FG, 7-16 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine assists, five rebounds, and one steal in 38 minutes during the Warriors' 123-110 win over the Rockets on Tuesday.

Curry now has 17 35-plus point performances, 14 showings with seven or more made three-pointers, and 15 contests with nine or more dimes this season. He has also recorded a steal in every game during 2016--with 2.2 takeaways per game since the turn of the new year.

Raymond Felton
Mavericks' Raymond Felton: Posts 17-7-5 line Tuesday
Raymond Felton, PG, DAL
2:49 AM
News: Felton contributed 17 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during the Mavericks' 121-119 overtime loss to the Jazz on Tuesday.

Felton didn't commit a single turnover, and he is delivering 12.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists to 0.4 turnovers, one three, and one steal in 27 minutes per game through five February match-ups. He has scored in double figures in five of the last six contests, and continues to play well in his contract year.

Deron Williams
Mavericks' Deron Williams: Scores 23 points Tuesday
Deron Williams, PG, DAL
2:37 AM
News: Williams went for 23 points (5-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 11-13 FT), five assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 42 minutes during the Mavericks' 121-119 overtime loss to the Jazz on Tuesday.

That's back-to-back performances with 22 points or more for Williams, whose last second shot rimmed out at the end of regulation. Williams turned the ball over three times on Tuesday, but otherwise he was efficient on offense thanks to his earning 13 free-throw attempts. He hadn't seen 40 minutes or more since Jan. 12 versus the Cavaliers, and both his 13 field goal-attempts and 11 makes from the stripe were season-highs.

Rodney Hood
Jazz's Rodney Hood: Scores 29 points, sends game to overtime with clutch three
Rodney Hood, SG, UTA
2:09 AM
News: Hood had 29 points (12-26 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, and five assists in 43 minutes during the Jazz's 121-119 overtime win against the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Over the last five contests, Hood is averaging 20.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.6 threes, 2.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 37 minutes per appearance, and his 26 shot attempts were a career-high. Hood's clutch corner three-pointer with less than two seconds remaining in regulation helped the Jazz force overtime, and the sophomore guard is having a sensational season. Utah is right back in action on Wednesday versus a Pelicans team that is among the worst in the league defensively.
