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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Anthony Parker: averaging 15.8 points, two threes, 4.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 56 percent from the field in his last four games
  • Greg Monroe: he’s notched four consecutive double-doubles and is a good pickup in nearly all formats
  • Chase Budinger: in his first start of the season, post-Shane Battier, he put up 27 points, three three-pointers, six rebounds and two assists; he should be owned in most leagues
  • Randy Foye: he continues to tear things up while Eric Gordon gets ready to return, and could retain decent value in Gordon’s first few games back
  • Mario Chalmers: averaged 33:40 of playing time this week, along with 13.3 points, 1.3 threes, 3.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.3 steals; he’s worth a pickup if you need a decent point guard
  • George Hill: he should get even more run with Gary Neal sidelined with a concussion
  • Willie Green: has been having a pretty solid month and has more breathing room with Marcus Thornton out of town
  • Will Bynum: continues to be a good source of points, assists, steals and solid shooting percentages
  • James Harden: has a higher ceiling with Jeff Green dealt away, should be picked up if you need points and threes
  • Chuck Hayes: averaging 9.6 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks this month, making him a solid add in most leagues
  • Rudy Fernandez: maintaining value despite Brandon Roy’s return; good for points, threes and steals on many nights
  • Peja Stojakovic: give him a look if you want points and threes
  • Toney Douglas: inconsistency will plague him, but he’s worth a look in deeper leagues
  • Jarrett Jack: quietly doing some damage, has scored in double figures in seven straight games
  • Kenyon Martin: he’s a decent option for the time being, though his health is tough to trust
  • Alonzo Gee: he’s worth monitoring
  • Austin Daye: fine to own in deeper leagues, worth monitoring in others
  • Ty Lawson: a bit limited by Ramond Felton’s presence, but still starting and dishing out good assists numbers
  • Gerald Henderson: should be a solid asset with Gerald Wallace out of Charlotte
Injury watch:
  • Ben Wallace (personal): out indefinitely due to the death of his brother
  • Matt Barnes (knee): traveling with the team, but not likely to play today
  • Ersan Ilyasova (concussion): day-to-day
  • Jordan Farmar (ankle): monitor his status
  • Quinton Ross (back): day-to-day
  • David West (personal): will return today
  • Kelenna Azuibuike (knee): Knicks are now considering releasing him
  • Carmelo Anthony (elbow): should be ready today
  • Kendrick Perkins (knee): out another 2-3 weeks
  • Marcus Camby (knee): should return shortly
  • Jason Thompson (ankle): check his status
  • Andray Blatche (hip): day-to-day
  • Mike Dunleavy (thumb): out 6-8 weeks
  • Mike Miller (ear infection): day-to-day
  • Kenyon Martin (flu): day-to-day
  • Anthony Morrow (knee): monitor his status
  • Andrea Bargnani (flu): check his status
  • Xavier Henry (knee): seeking a second opinion, could be out for the rest of the season
  • Wayne Ellington (personal): should return today
Stock watch:
↑ D.J. Augustin: slump right before the All-Star break appears to be over with

↑ Chauncey Billups: has benefited from his trade to the Knicks, averaging 23.5 points, 1.5 threes, 4.5 rebounds, eight assists and one steal in his first two games for coach Mike D’Antoni

↑ Kyle Lowry: fantasy value is safer now with Aaron Brooks gone

↑ Jrue Holiday: struggles from earlier this month appear to be over

↑ Beno Udrih: benefiting from Tyreke Evans’ absence, averaging 15.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, eight assists and 1.3 steals in his last four

↓ Raymond Felton: his days as a fantasy stud are surely over

↓ Amar’e Stoudemire: his ceiling is a bit lower with Billups and ‘Melo in town

↓ Stephen Curry: has looked miserable lately, not taking many shots

↓ Danny Granger: shooting well this month, but not hitting many threes lately, and hasn’t notched a steal or block in his last four

↓ Jeff Green: his role will be smaller in Boston than it was in Oklahoma City
