Warriors' Brandon Rush: Contributes five points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Rush contributed five points (5-6 FT) and five rebounds in 16 minutes off the bench Wednesday against Phoenix.

The game was representative of how Rush has performed of late, as he's seen a limited role off the bench in recent weeks. The Kansas product averaged 5.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.9 minutes per game in January and has put up similar per-minute numbers over a limited February sample. Rush's role will vary night-to-night depending upon the situation, as was evidenced earlier this week when he played only three minutes in a win over the Rockets.


Warriors' Ian Clark: Three DNP-CDs in last four games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Clark has been a DNP-CD in three of the Warriors' last four games.

Clark played four minutes in mop-up duty Wednesday in Phoenix but failed to see the floor in three games prior. The Belmont product saw an increased role earlier in the season when Harrison Barnes was injured, but when the Warriors are at full strength, Clark struggles to see more than garbage time minutes on most nights.


Thunder's Cameron Payne: Records season-high of eight assists
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Payne finished with four points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds and eight assists over 25 minutes during Thursday's win over the Pelicans.

Payne struggled offensively Thursday, shooting a woeful 29 percent from the field and missing all three of his three-point attempts. However, the eight assists notched a new season-high for the rookie and he received solid playing time with the Thunder up by a bunch for the majority of the game. Payne has established himself as the top bench option behind Russell Westbrook at the point, but as long as Russell is healthy, Payne will be limited to minutes in the mid-to-high teens, while occasionally moving into the low-20's.


Wizards' Garrett Temple: Sees minutes slashed in win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Temple contributed three points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), three rebounds, and two steals in 16 minutes of action in Thursday's loss to the Bucks.

Temple saw his minutes slashed on Thursday, seeing the least amount of action since Dec. 9. The 29-year-olds minutes may continue to decline after the All-Star break with Bradley Beal continuing to take on heavier workload as he returns to full strength after suffering a stress reaction in his right leg.


Kings' Seth Curry: Struggling to earn playing time
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Curry has played in just two of Sacramento's past five games, posting three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two steals, and one block over nine total minutes.

Curry has appeared in less than half of Sacramento's games this season and has only seen more than 15 minutes in a game just six times. He has been somewhat efficient when has has been on the floor, shooting 45 percent on two point attempts and 43 percent from three point range, but his playing time is too unpredictable for him to truly warrant a spot on year-long rosters.


Wizards' John Wall: Expected to play in All-Star game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Wall (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's All-Star game, Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post reports.

Wall injured his knee during Thursday's game against the Bucks and was seen limping following the game. He says he plans on playing in the All-Star game Sunday, which means the injury likely isn't anything serious. With that being said, he should be ready to go come Feb. 18 against the Jazz when the Wizards return to action following the All-Star break.


Mavericks' John Jenkins: Four straight DNP-CDs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Jenkins has been a DNP-CD in each of the Mavericks' last four games.

The Vanderbilt product has been buried near the end of the bench for much of the season, seeing double-digit minutes on just seven occasions. Barring an injury or two to the Dallas backcourt, Jenkins is unlikely to emerge from a deep reserve role this season.


Hornets' Troy Daniels: DNP-CD in four of last five
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Daniels has been a DNP-CD in four of the Hornets' last five games.

Daniels played just two minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pacers, breaking a streak of four consecutive DNP-CDs. The 24-year-old is among the league's best three-point shooters, but he doesn't bring much else to the table and has been buried behind Nic Batum, Jeremy Lin and Jeremy Lamb of late. Daniels has proven capable of being productive when given the opportunity, however, evidenced by his 28-point (8-11 3Pt), seven-rebound eruption in 31 minutes against the Kings on Jan. 25.


Bucks' Rashad Vaughn: Scores eight points in win over Wiz
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Vaughn scored eight points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt) in 14 minutes Thursday against the Wizards.

Vaughn has carved out a consistent role off the bench this season, as he concluded the month of January with averages of 3.1 points and 1.2 rebounds in just over 15 minutes per game. One of the youngest players in the league, Vaughn is mostly a spot-up perimeter threat at this point in his career, and his 26 made threes on the season are good for fourth on the team behind Khris Middleton, Jerryd Bayless and O.J. Mayo.


Wizards' Jarell Eddie: Has only played in 14 games this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/12/2016) Eddie has averaged 3.0 points, 0.9 rebounds, 0.1 assists, 0.1 steals, and 0.1 blocks in six minutes per game through 14 games this season with the Wizards.

Eddie signed with the Wizards back on Dec. 22 after spending training camp with the team this past fall. He saw the most action early on, playing over 12 minutes per game in three of his first six games with the team. Since then, he's seen a steep drop off in action, playing only three minutes total in February.
