  • Marco Belinelli: has been mostly good in the last couple weeks
  • Tony Allen: has started the last four games for the Grizzlies, good for steals
  • Ryan Anderson: despite bench role, has been fairly solid, good for threes
  • Omri Casspi: having a good start to the new year, though inconsistency is always in the cards for him
  • Toney Douglas: getting consistent minutes, worth a look in deeper leagues
  • Patrick Mills: getting around 20+ minutes lately, doing fairly well with them
  • Tracy McGrady: averaging 6.8 assists in his last five games
  • Greg Monroe: two straight double-doubles, but doesn’t block many shots

  • Stephen Curry (hip, thigh): check his status for today

Stock watch:

↑ DeAndre Jordan: finding his groove, has blocked 19 shots in his past three games

↑ Antawn Jamison: looking like the old Jamison, but trade possibilities pose risk to his fantasy value

↑ Joe Johnson: shooting the lights out, looking like his old self so far in 2011

↑ Rashard Lewis: having a mini-resurgence in Washington

↑ DeMarcus Cousins: has found consistency

↓ Danny Granger: rebounds are up, but everything else is sagging lately

↓ Brook Lopez: averaging 9.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in his four games so far in 2011

↓ Mo Williams: continues to struggle to really break through this season

↓ Jeff Green: has fallen off radars lately, but continues to get good minutes
