Analysis: Carter-Williams had averaged 13.0 points on 40.9 percent shooting over his previous five games.
12/22/2014 Victor Oladipo, G
Oladipo bounced back from a couple of rough outings with 23 points in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

Analysis: Oladipo had totaled nine points while missing 14 of 18 shots in his previous two contests.
12/22/2014 Nikola Vucevic, F-C
Vucevic finished with 19 points and 17 rebounds in Orlando's loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

Analysis: Vucevic has averaged 16.8 points and 11.8 rebounds in five games since missing six due to injury.
12/22/2014 Andre Drummond, F-C
Drummond had a huge game with 18 points and 20 rebounds in Sunday's loss at Brooklyn.

Analysis: After a slow start, Drummond is averaging 16.2 points and 15.3 boards over his last six games.
12/22/2014 Mason Plumlee, F-C
Plumlee continues to play well, finishing with 21 points and 12 boards in Sunday's win over Detroit.

Analysis: He also had two steals, two blocks and went 9 for 10 from the field. He's averaging 19.8 points and 9.5 rebounds while shooting 70.5 percent over his last four games.
12/22/2014 Jarrett Jack, G
Jack filled in nicely for Deron Williams on Sunday with 15 points and 10 assists in a win over Detroit.

Analysis: Jack will have some value as long as Williams remains out with a calf injury.
12/22/2014 Kobe Bryant, G
Bryant had another horrible shooting night Sunday, going 8 for 30 in a 25-point effort against the Kings.

Analysis: He's 11 for 45 (24.4 percent) while totaling 34 points in his last two games. He's killing your fantasy team's field-goal percentage all by himself.
12/22/2014 Nick Young, G-F
Young had a productive Sunday with 26 points, four 3-pointers and 8-of-8 shooting from the line in a loss at Sacramento.

Analysis: Young had averaged just 11.7 points while totaling five 3s over his previous three games.
12/22/2014 Ben McLemore, SG
McLemore finished with a season-high 23 points and added eight rebounds in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Analysis: McLemore has totaled 45 points while shooting 18 for 28 from the field in his last two games.
12/22/2014 C.J. Miles, G-F
Miles scored 28 points and grabbed six rebounds Sunday in Indiana's win over Minnesota.

Analysis: Miles has proven he's capable of big performances, albeit not consistently. He is averaging 11.3 points this season.
12/22/2014 Mo Williams, G
Williams scored 24 points Sunday in Minnesota's loss to Indiana.

Analysis: The Timberwolves' roster has been thinned by trades and injuries, and Williams is making the most of it. He is inconsistent though, so he owns very little fantasy value.
12/22/2014 Anthony Davis, F-C
Davis scored 38 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in New Orleans' win over Oklahoma City.

Analysis: This sort of performance has become customary for Davis. He's one of the best players in the NBA.
12/22/2014 Josh Smith, F
The Detroit Pistons have waived Smith, less than two years after signing him to a lucrative free-agent contract.

Analysis: The Pistons are 5-23 and coach and team president Stan Van Gundy says the club wants to develop younger players. He says he felt it best to give the 29-year-old Smith his freedom to go elsewhere. Smith signed a $54 million, four-year deal with the Pistons before last season, but he shot only 42 percent from the field in 2013-14. This season, Smith is at 39 percent.
12/21/2014 Monta Ellis, G
Ellis scored 38 points in Saturday's win over San Antonio.

Analysis: He did so on 15-of-23 shooting and has hit 52.0 percent of his shots in five games since his two-point night in Memphis on Dec. 9.
12/21/2014 Chris Paul, PG
Paul had 27 points and nine assists in Saturday's win over Milwaukee.

Analysis: He's averaging 21.3 points and 11.0 assists in his last three games.
12/21/2014 Zach Randolph, F-C
Randolph missed his first game this season Sunday because of a sore and swollen right knee. Randolph did not travel to Cleveland for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers. Coach David Joerger did not say who will replace Randolph in the starting lineup.

Analysis: Randolph, averaging 16.1 points and 11.4 rebounds, was injured during Friday night's loss to Chicago, which ended Memphis' six-game winning streak. He played just 22 minutes. The team says results of his MRI exam Saturday were negative. Joerger says Randolph will likely sit out Monday's home game against Utah, and the team wants to give him as much time as needed to get healthy.
12/21/2014 Danilo Gallinari, SF
Gallinari has a torn meniscus in his right knee and is expected to soon undergo surgery. The team has yet to announce a timetable for his return.

Analysis: Gallinari turned in one of his best games of the season Saturday in a win over Indiana as he scored 19 points, including a 3-pointer to spark a critical fourth-quarter run. He was back on the court this year after missing nearly 18 months with a torn ACL in his left knee that required three surgeries.
12/21/2014 Spencer Hawes, F-C
Hawes is out with a knee injury.

Analysis: He said he's trying to overcome some general soreness and is close to returning.
12/21/2014 Lance Stephenson, G-F
Stephenson is out with a pelvic sprain.

Analysis: Coach Steve Clifford said Stephenson, who has been the subject of trade rumors, won't return until after Christmas.
12/21/2014 Dwyane Wade, G
Wade is dealing with a knee contusion.

Analysis: He's considered day to day.
