Nuggets' Gary Harris: Leads team in scoring upon injury return
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Harris (ankle) scored 22 points (9-13 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while pulling down six rebounds, handing out three assists and adding one steal across 35 minutes during Sunday's 111-108 loss to the Timberwolves.

Harris returned from a three-game absence due to a sprained ankle and led the team in scoring while draining 69 percent of his attempts from the field. He also logged more minutes than any other Nuggets player on the evening and should be all systems go for Tuesday's matchup with the Jazz.


Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Foul trouble limits output versus Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Jokic scored 18 points (8-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 27 minutes during Sunday's 111-108 loss to the Timberwolves.

Facing a difficult matchup against Karl-Anthony Towns and perhaps still dealing with lingering effects from an ankle issue, Jokic saw his output somewhat limited after getting himself in foul trouble. That said, he was still able to contribute across the board and narrowly missed another double-double despite playing just over half of the game. Jokic should be back to his best for Tuesday's matchup with the Jazz, when he will look to resume his breakout campaign.


Timberwolves' Shabazz Muhammad: Scores 20 points Sunday versus Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Muhammad scored 20 points (9-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt) while adding five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 33 minutes during Sunday's 111-108 victory over the Nuggets.

Muhammad saw increased run as Gorgui Dieng landed himself in early foul trouble, responding with his second 20-point outing of the month while logging a season high in minutes. He has shown flashes of being a capable contributor when the opportunity presents itself, and having played at least 20 minutes in six of the last 10 games, he seems be inching toward a more prominent role off the bench for this up-and-coming club.


Timberwolves' Andrew Wiggins: Scores 24 points in win over Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Wiggins scored 24 points (10-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes during Sunday's 111-108 victory over the Nuggets.

Wiggins was aggressive on the offensive end, tying for the team lead in shot attempts while shooting 53 percent from the floor. He also tallied four assists for the third time in the last four outings and recorded both a steal and a block in the same game for just the second time in his last 18. Wiggins has proven himself as an NBA scorer, but his ability to contribute more consistently in other areas will make him a top-caliber fantasy asset.


Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Records huge double-double versus Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Towns recorded 32 points (13-19 FG, 6-8 FT), 12 rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and one steal across 40 minutes during Sunday's 111-108 victory over the Nuggets.

Towns was extremely efficient on the offensive end, shooting 68 percent from the floor while needing just 19 attempts to top the 30-point mark for the second straight game. Furthermore, Towns' four swats represented a season high and the seven dimes he dished out were his second-highest output in that category. He now has three double-doubles in a row after snapping a recent streak and remains one of the premier fantasy assets at his position.


Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-double in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Valanciunas scored 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-5 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 loss to the Suns.

He's now got five double-doubles in his last seven games and 17 on the season, putting Valanciunas on pace to shatter his previous career high of 25 set back in 2013-14. He's also started to make an impact again defensively -- although he's averaging a career-low 0.8 blocks per game, he does have 10 in his last nine contests.


Raptors' Kyle Lowry: Ejected late in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Lowry scored 15 points (5-17 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding six assists, four rebounds and a steal in 37 minutes before being ejected for a flagrant foul on Eric Bledsoe late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 115-103 loss to the Suns.

A long, frustrating night ended a bit early for Lowry, who'd already picked up a technical foul earlier in the fourth prior to the ejection. It was his worst performance from beyond the arc since he went 0-for-7 in San Antonio back on January 3, but he may not be able to turn things around quickly, as the Raptors' next game is at home Tuesday against those same stingy Spurs.


Raptors' DeMar DeRozan: Sprains ankle in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) DeRozan injured his ankle after landing on Jonas Valanciunas' foot in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 115-103 loss to the Suns, eventually heading to the locker room inside the last two minutes. He finished the game with 22 points (6-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding four assists, three rebounds, a steal and a block in 37 minutes.

The fact that DeRozan tried to play through the injury and only called it a night once the game was out of hand is an encouraging sign, but his status for Tuesday's game against the Spurs should still be considered somewhat iffy. He did extend his streak of games with at least 20 points to a career-high 16 prior to exiting, however.


Suns' P.J. Tucker: Double-double off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Tucker scored 11 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and a steal in 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 115-103 win over the Raptors.

It was his first double-double of the season, but the fifth time he's chipped in double-digit boards. Tucker's biggest impact on the game came on the defensive end, though, as his tight, physical defense held DeMar DeRozan to just 6-for-17 shooting and prevented Toronto from mounting any sort of run in the fourth quarter. His fantasy ceiling is limited, but Tucker's skill set could be a very sought-after commodity at the trade deadline.


Suns' Devin Booker: Scores 20 in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(1/22/2017) Booker scored 20 points (6-14 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 37 minutes during Sunday's 115-103 win over the Raptors.

It's his ninth straight game with at least 20 points, the longest such stretch of Booker's young career. He isn't a consistent producer yet outside of his points and three-pointers, but the 20-year-old still has plenty of time to develop his skill set and become one of the NBA's elite shooting guards.
