1/30/2015 Zaza Pachulia, C
Pachulia is expected to miss at least a week with a calf injury.

Analysis: Pachulia is averaging 7.9 points over 42 games.
1/30/2015 Vince Carter, G-F
Carter has an injured tendon in his left foot and will undergo more evaluation. The team announced Friday that an MRI revealed the injury and he'll be re-evaluated next week.

Analysis: Carter hurt his foot Thursday in the Grizzlies' 99-69 victory over the Denver Nuggets. Carter left the game in the second quarter and didn't return. The 38-year-old Carter is averaging 6 points this season.
1/30/2015 Tim Hardaway Jr., G-F
Hardaway sprained his ankle at the end of Thursday's loss at Indiana.

Analysis: Fantasy owners should check Hardaway's status before Sunday's matchup against the Lakers.
1/30/2015 Tobias Harris, F
Harris reportedly hurt his right knee Thursday.

Analysis: Fantasy owners can only hope the injury isn't serious. Harris is averaging just 10.8 points on 33.9 percent shooting over five games since returning from a sprained ankle.
1/30/2015 Travis Wear, PF
Wear is dealing with a hip injury.

Analysis: Wear is averaging 4.1 points in 37 games.
1/30/2015 Carmelo Anthony, F
Anthony had 18 points in only 25 minutes of action in Thursday's loss to the Pacers.

Analysis: Anthony went to the bench with 3:45 left in the third quarter and the Knicks trailing by 25 and did not re-enter the game.
1/30/2015 Jimmy Butler, G-F
Butler hurt his left knee against the Lakers on Thursday.

Analysis: It's unclear if he'll be able to go Friday against the Suns.
1/30/2015 Jordan Hill, F-C
Hill scored a season-high 26 points and forced the second OT with a clutch jumper, and the Lakers snapped their nine-game losing streak in thrilling fashion with a 123-118 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night.

Analysis: Hill is averaging a solid 14.6 points and 8.7 boards over the last 13 games.
1/30/2015 Roy Hibbert, C
Hibbert recorded his second double-double in three games Thursday with 18 points and 10 rebounds against the Knicks.

Analysis: Hibbert, who had one blocked shot, continues to be disappointing in that regard for fantasy owners. His 1.8 blocked shots per game are his fewest since 2010-11.
1/30/2015 Joakim Noah, F-C
Noah filled the stat sheet with nine points and season highs of 17 rebounds and nine assists in Thursday's double-overtime loss to the Lakers.

Analysis: While it's been a disappointing campaign for Noah thus far, he appears to be turning things around. He's totaled 27 points, 32 boards and 15 assists in the last two games.
1/30/2015 Rodney Stuckey, G
Stuckey finished two shy of his season high for the second straight game with 22 points in Thursday's win over the Knicks.

Analysis: Stuckey is known for being a high-volume, low-efficiency scorer, but is averaging 19.7 points over his last three games while going 22 of 39 from the floor.
1/30/2015 Wayne Ellington, SG
Ellington scored 23 points in Thursday's double-overtime win over Chicago.

Analysis: Ellington scored a career-high 28 two nights earlier, and he could be worth a look in deeper leagues.
1/30/2015 Zach Randolph, F-C
Randolph recorded his 11th straight double-double with 15 points and 17 rebounds in Thursday's win against Denver.

Analysis: Randolph continues to be excellent on the glass. His 12.0 rebounds per game trails only his 12.2 mark from 2010-11.
1/30/2015 Jordan Clarkson, PG
Clarkson scored 18 points in Thursday's double-overtime win over Chicago.

Analysis: Clarkson also scored 18 two nights earlier. He's averaged 13.8 points while starting the last four games.
1/30/2015 Ty Lawson, PG
Lawson had another ugly night from the field in Thursday's loss to Memphis, scoring nine points on 3-of-11 shooting.

Analysis: Lawson had been 2 of 12 for five points a night earlier at New Orleans, but at least redeemed himself with 13 assists. He recorded only six helpers Thursday.
1/30/2015 DeMarcus Cousins, F-C
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has selected Cousins to replace injured Lakers star Kobe Bryant on the Western Conference All-Star team.

Analysis: The commissioner's decision Friday sends Cousins to the All-Star game for the first time in his five-year career. He becomes Sacramento's first All-Star since Brad Miller and Peja Stojakovic in 2004.
1/30/2015 Ryan Kelly, F
The Lakers sent Kelly to the Los Angeles D-Fenders on Friday before they departed on an East Coast road trip.

Analysis: Kelly started the Lakers' last four games, but scored just 13 points on 3-for-13 shooting. The second-year pro from Duke had just three points in 21 minutes during Los Angeles' 123-118 double-overtime victory over Chicago on Thursday night.
1/30/2015 DeMarre Carroll, F
Carroll will miss the Atlanta Hawks' game against Portland because of a left Achilles strain.

Analysis: Thabo Sefolosha will start for Carroll in Friday night's game. The Hawks didn't update Carroll's status for Saturday night's game against Philadelphia. Carroll is averaging 11.8 points and 5.3 rebounds. He missed four games with a groin strain in November.
1/30/2015 Louis Amundson, PF
The New York Knicks have signed veteran forward Lou Amundson for the remainder of the season.

Analysis: The Knicks announced they were keeping Amundson on Friday after the expiration of his second 10-day contract. They had to offer him a deal for the rest of the season if they wanted to keep him. Amundson has appeared in seven games, making six starts, since signing his first 10-day deal on Jan. 20. He has averaged 6.4 points and 6.0 rebounds.
1/30/2015 Anthony Davis, F-C
Davis will miss Friday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers because of a groin strain.

Analysis: Pelicans coach Monty Williams says Davis, who was hurt in a collision with Denver's Kenneth Faried on Wednesday night, wanted to play. Williams added his leading scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker was hampered by the injury during pregame workouts. Williams says he wants Davis to focus on rehabilitation and try to return for Monday night's game against Atlanta.
