Date Player
11/24/2014 Marc Gasol, C
Gasol had 30 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 107-91 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night.

Analysis: Gasol, averaging 19.9 points, has scored a combined 62 in Memphis' past two games. His 32 in a win over Boston on Friday matched a career high.
11/24/2014 Al Jefferson, F-C
Jefferson had 22 points and 12 rebounds in Sunday's loss to Miami for his second straight double-double.

Analysis: Jefferson has been particularly beastly over his last three games with 24.7 points on 54.2 percent shooting - though they've all been Hornets losses.
11/24/2014 Luol Deng, F
Deng scored 26 on 10-of-14 shooting and grabbed a season-high eight rebounds in Sunday's win over Charlotte.

Analysis: Deng's 50.3 field-goal percentage is the second-highest of his career.
11/24/2014 Mario Chalmers, G
Chalmers scored 20 with 10 assists in Sunday's win over Charlotte.

Analysis: Chalmers is enjoying quite the run of late, averaging 20.0 points on 57.6 percent shooting in his last six games.
11/24/2014 Chris Bosh, F-C
Bosh had 20 points and 10 rebounds for his sixth double-double in Sunday's win over the Hornets.

Analysis: Bosh is averaging 26.7 points over his last three games after scoring 13.5 points per game in the previous four.
11/24/2014 LaMarcus Aldridge, F-C
Aldridge scored 20 and tied a season high with 14 rebounds in Sunday's win at Boston.

Analysis: Aldrige, who was 7 of 21 from the field, is shooting a career-low 45.0 percent. He's still a stud with 21.3 points and 8.6 rebounds a game, though.
11/24/2014 Damian Lillard, PG
Lillard had a tough shooting night, going 4 of 14 for 12 points in Sunday's win at Boston, though he recorded a career-high nine rebounds.

Analysis: Lillard has been one of the league's better rebounding point guards with 5.5 rebounds per game. It's not what you're relying on him for as a fantasy owner, but it gives him a little extra value compared to other comparable players.
11/24/2014 Jeff Green, G-F
Green scored 19 in Sunday's loss to Portland.

Analysis: Green is averaging a career-high 18.4 points but continues to be inconsistent at times. He had totaled only 23 points in his previous two games.
11/24/2014 Jared Sullinger, F-C
Sullinger had 19 points on a rough 8-for-22 shooting night in Sunday's loss to Portland.

Analysis: Sullinger's 47.9 field-goal percentage is still a big improvement from the 42.7 percent clip he shot at last season.
11/24/2014 Ty Lawson, PG
Lawson notched another double-double Sunday.

Analysis: Lawson had 18 points and 16 assists in a virtuoso effort. Use him Tuesday against the Bulls, who figure to be without superstar Derrik Rose.
11/24/2014 Kobe Bryant, G
Bryant had 27 points on 10-of-24 shooting Sunday.

Analysis: Bryant faces Memphis in his next game and that kind of defense should stifle the aging veteran. Don't expect him to be gun-shy so upwards of 30 shots - mostly misses - can be expected.
11/23/2014 Cory Joseph, PG
Joseph missed Saturday's game against Brooklyn due to a sprained left ankle.

Analysis: It's unclear how serious the injury is.
11/23/2014 James Johnson, F
Johnson missed his third straight game Saturday due to a sprained right ankle.

Analysis: Johnson is set to be re-evaluated Sunday in Toronto.
11/23/2014 Tyler Hansbrough, F-C
Hansbrough missed a second straight game Saturday due to a sprained right shoulder.

Analysis: He's slated to be re-evaluated Sunday in Toronto.
11/23/2014 Tobias Harris, F
Harris missed Saturday's loss to Miami with a strained right calf.

Analysis: Harris is day to day.
11/23/2014 Taj Gibson, F-C
Gibson left in the third quarter of Saturday's loss to Portland with a sprained left ankle.

Analysis: Gibson, who came down on Portland's Wesley Matthews, clutched his ankle and grimaced in pain before he was helped off the court. The 6-foot-9 forward was averaging 12.9 points and 5.9 rebounds coming into the game. Coach Tom Thibodeau said he didn't think it was serious, but Gibson left the Moda Center in a boot and on crutches. "We'll see where he is (Sunday)," Thibodeau said.
11/23/2014 Norris Cole, PG
Cole didn't play Saturday against the Magic after suffering a dislocated finger in Thursday's loss to the Clippers.

Analysis: Coach Erik Spoelstra said Cole is wearing a splint, but "it could turn into a playable splint."
11/23/2014 Gerald Green, G-F
Green scored 23 points in Saturday's 106-83 win at Indiana.

Analysis: Green shot 8 of 15, including 5 of 9 from 3-point range. While the offense should be there all season, Green doesn't offer much in the way of steals or blocks.
11/23/2014 Dirk Nowitzki, F-C
Nowitzki had a tough night Saturday, finishing with 11 points on 4-of-18 shooting in the loss to Houston.

Analysis: Dirk's 51.6 field-goal percentage is the second-highest of his career, so performances like Saturday's have been few and far between.
11/23/2014 Chris Copeland, F
Copeland finished with eight points in 30 minutes in Saturday's loss to Phoenix.

Analysis: After getting off to a great start, Copeland is averaging just 7.5 points on 30.6 percent shooting over the last four games.
