Game watch:
4 games: ATL, BOS, CHA, CLE, DAL, DEN, DET, GS, HOU, IND, LAC, LAL, MEM, NY, OKC, ORL, PHI, PHO, SAC
3 games: CHI, MIA, MIL, NJ, NO, POR, SA, TOR, UTA, WAS
2 games: MIN

Waiver wire watch:

  • George Hill: playing like a stud, even while a healing Tony Parker is in the lineup
  • Marcus Thornton: still no reason why he shouldn’t be owned
  • Nicolas Batum: huge game Saturday, but still a bit unreliable
  • C.J. Watson: nice return from the flu, serious lines lately
  • Beno Udrih: starting again

Injury watch:

  • Paul Pierce (thumb): still about a week away
  • Joakim Noah (foot): will miss a few games
  • Monta Ellis (back): day-to-day
  • Shane Battier (flu): same
  • Andrei Kirilenko (back): game-time decision Monday
  • Wilson Chandler (personal): out Monday
  • Ty Lawson (shoulder): not likely to play Monday
  • Antonio McDyess (knee): monitor status
  • Al Jefferson (DUI): two-game suspension
  • Elton Brand (calf): day-to-day

Stock watch:

↑ Chauncey Billups: on a straight-up tear

↑ Josh Smith: back to his studly ways

↑ Brendan Haywood: doesn’t get nearly as much credit as he deserves

↑ Andrew Bogut: had a hugely successful five-game week

↑ Stephen Curry: playing like a wily veteran; value helped by Ellis’ absence

↓ Jose Calderon: he’s hopeless

↓ Tim Duncan: Pop officially gave notice of possible DNPs in back-to-backs

↓ Vince Carter: very pedestrian lately

↓ Carmelo Anthony: looks like his old self again

↓ Ben Gordon: most disappointing player of 2009-10
