I'd say Tinsley. Last time Williams went out I remember he started for them and got 6-7 Assists every time he started. Sometimes he would even get double digit assists if my memory serves correctly.

That's cuz Earl was injured...Earl is the 2nd string PG, but who will produce more is yet to be seeing....

Tinsley, when starting, goes 8/8 with 1.8 3pms and 1.3 stls, on 52% shooting. He has put up numbers every time he gets the start, over the last 5 seasons. People should have been running to the wire the moment that quote from Mo came out, about how this felt just like that injury in 2008. That time, he had surgery, and left for the season, and was not playing basketball again until the following season.

Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson posted 14 points and 14 rebounds for his third consecutive double-double during Cleveland's 94-82 win over Milwaukee on Sunday night. Thompson's current streak of double-doubles is the longest of his career and gave him eight total on the season. He drained 6 of his 8 attempts from the field against the Bucks for his fifth outing this month shooting better than 60 percent.

After registering a field-goal percentage of 43.6 during the first month of the season, Thompson has heated up in December and entered Saturday's game with a 47.1 clip from the field. He has now scored in double figures in five straight games for a quality average of 11.4 points a night in that span. The 21-year-old is beginning to reach his potential

Ed Davis and Amir Johnson should get plenty of run with no Bargs and now no Valanciunas, right?

I can't believe I'm saying this but... Matt Barnes

His game log during this Clippers win streak is solid! Who knows how much longer he's going to have value so if you have anyone to drop, do it for Barnes asap.

i have mo williams and byron mullens, i'm waiting for re-evaluation and if it's bad news i'll drop them. tinsley wasn't great tonight, but i haven't ruled him out. i'm looking at avery bradley, he's hurt but due back this week. but his defense is his strength and may not provide much for fantasy. i'm also looking at shane battier, good source of three pointers, even when he doesn't play many minutes. and lastly, dominique jones for the mavs. he didn't play well today, but he's on my watch list. i've had so many injuries and i've had to drop them for hot pickups. i already have tristan thompson, ed davis, and gustavo ayon. if somebody is looking at them, i'd go for thompson. i think he has the best long term value. he's decent even when varajao is playing too.

Blatche!

With the latest news about Humphries and Avery Johnson's intentions to give him more minutes, he's definitely an add.

My fault. Not more minutes but playing more with Brook Lopez...which is still very, very good news.

Ed Davis and Amir Johnson are somehow still only owned in 19% and 4% of ESPN leagues, respectively. Virtually all of the first team frontcourt minutes will be theirs for now.

Johnson is a legit double-double threat when he's getting big minutes.

Also, as somebody else mentioned, Matt Barnes is a great pick-up. He's made a positive contribution in every single cat over the past couple weeks and is still only owned in 28.4% of leagues.

Eric Bledsoe in deeper leagues or if you're chasing defensive stats--4 games plus his schedule is useful for h2h (Tue, Thur, Fri, Sun) with almost everyone playing wednesday.

He's been so helpful in steals and blocks that anything else he contributes is just gravy. Definitely worth an add.
