Magic's Evan Fournier: Struggles on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10:34 pm ET) Fournier managed only three points (1-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and two rebounds in 21 minutes during the Magic's 100-91 win versus the Knicks on Wednesday.

Fournier couldn't find his touch from the field on Wednesday, and this was his second straight stinker to start the week. The Magic brought Victor Oladipo off the bench, as coach Scott Skiles decided to try something different. The team's rotation will be something to keep an eye on in the coming weeks, as Skiles is clearly still feeling things out in his first year at the helm.

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Has huge double-double Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10:22 pm ET) Anthony totaled 28 points (9-17 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 35 minutes during the Knicks' 100-91 loss versus the Magic on Wednesday.

It was one of Anthony's best games of the season, but the Knicks shot 37 percent from the field and suffered a nine-point loss. This was his fourth double-double of the year, and Anthony continues to get to the free-throw line enough to maintain his efficiency through an ugly start shooting the ball from the field. Expect Anthony to continue scoring 20 or more points on most nights even if he struggles with his shot.

Hornets' Marvin Williams: Scores 14 points on seven shots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10:06 pm ET) Williams went for 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes during the Hornets' 101-87 win versus the Wizards on Wednesday.

Williams has been re-born after struggling last year in his first season with the Hornets. He now has four double-doubles through 15 games, and his three-point shooting from the four position has helped transform the team's outlook. Williams is averaging 32 minutes per game, and as long as he is able to maintain that minutes load, he'll have value in some leagues.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Unbothered by bug Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9:50 pm ET) Batum contributed 16 points (5-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, 11 assists, and two steals in 34 minutes during the Hornets' 101-87 win versus the Wizards on Wednesday.

Batum didn't shoot the ball well from the field, but he dialed in from distance three times while falling three boards short of a triple-double. Batum has been a godsend for the Hornets, and his well-rounded production makes him a valuable commodity regardless of fantasy format.

Wizards' Marcin Gortat: Has efficient double-double
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9:42 pm ET) Gortat recorded 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, one steal, and two blocks in 31 minutes during the Wizards' 101-87 loss versus the Hornets on Wednesday.

Gortat enjoyed his best showing of the season on Wednesday, delivering a season-high 17 points on only eight attempts from the field while pulling in a season-high 12 boards as well. This was only the second time all year that Gortat has eclipsed 30 minutes, with the first time coming in the Wizards' opener against the Magic. The Wizards are back in action on Friday versus the Celtics.

Grizzlies' Zach Randolph: Out again Wednesday in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(8:16 pm ET) Randolph (knee) is out again Wednesday in Houston, Calvin Watkins of ESPN reports.

This will be the fourth consecutive missed game for Randolph. The Grizzlies are likely being cautious with their veteran, as a means to avoid a longer nagging injury. The next chance for Randolph to return to the court is Friday versus Atlanta.

Mavericks' Chandler Parsons: Rests Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7:30 pm ET) Parsons will sit out Wednesday's game against the Spurs to rest, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.

Parsons still isn't ready to play in back-to-back games which explains Wednesday's absence since he logged a season-high 25 minutes Tuesday against the Grizzlies. A combination of Charlie Villanueva and rookie Justin Anderson will likely take over at small forward with Parsons expected to return in normal fashion Saturday against the Nuggets.

Kings' Caron Butler: Will sit out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7:26 pm ET) Butler (knee) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Bucks, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports.

Butler is averaging just over 10 minutes per game this season and his impending absence will be rather easily covered by a combination of Marco Belinelli, James Anderson, and Omri Casspi. The next opportunity for the veteran to return will be Friday against Minnesota.

Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Set to miss out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7:12 pm ET) Bjelica (knee) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

Bjelica is missing his third consecutive game Wednesday as he continues to be bogged down with a left knee contusion. His next opportunity to return will be against the Kings on Friday.

Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge: Returns from ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6:50 pm ET) Aldridge (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Mavericks, Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Aldridge recently sat out two games with a sprained left ankle but he'll presumably take over his expected spot in the starting lineup immediately, which likely moves David West back to a limited role off the bench.
