Norman Powell    G    UCLA     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Powell missed Tuesday's practice with an illness and is questionable for Thursday's game against Utah, the Orange County Register's Ryan Kartje reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Coach Steve Alford said he hoped Powell did not have the flu, so it is unclear exactly how serious of an illness this is. Monitor his status prior to Thursday's game, as it could wind up being a game-time decision.
Isaiah Cousins    G    Oklahoma     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Cousins "should be fine" for Wednesday's matchup against Texas Tech, CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Cousins is currently dealing with a sprained wrist, but he seems to have a pretty strong chance of suiting up for this week's Big-12 matchup. The junior guard was limited to 18 minutes of action in Saturday's loss to Baylor, but he doesn't appear to be dealing with the prospect of a long term absence.
Derrick Walton Jr.    G    Michigan     + Add To Watchlist

Fantasy Analysis

He was not warming up with his teammates, and left the team and hobbled to the locker room with an undisclosed injury. Walton was then seen in street clothes. We will update his status when we know what the nature of the injury is, but for now, consider him day-to-day.
Kodi Justice    G    Arizona State     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Justice (foot) will miss the remainder of the season due to a fracture in his foot, Jeff Borzello of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Justice injured his foot in Saturday's game and was initially believed to be dealing with only a sprain. However, upon further examination, the fracture was revealed, and the freshman will miss the rest of the season. Justice was averaging 4.6 points, 1.6 assists and 1.2 rebounds in just under 13 minutes per game.
Monte Morris    G    Iowa State     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Morris dropped 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 FT), along with four boards, six assists, a steal and two blocks in Monday's win over Texas.

Fantasy Analysis

Morris didn't turn the ball over once on Monday, which has become almost an everyday occurrence as of late. He still leads the country in assist to turnover ratio by a large margin, and provides great production in every category. His 5.63 APG leads the Big 12 conference.
Bryce Dejean-Jones    G    Iowa State     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Dejean-Jones had 18 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3PT, 7-11 FT), adding four boards and three assists in a win over Texas on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Dejean-Jones put up great numbers in just 27 minutes of action on Monday, which was the least among any starter on the Cyclones team. This was a much needed performance after two sluggish games from the senior guard. Keep an eye on him moving forward to see what this leads to. He's averaging 12.7 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 2.8 APG.
Georges Niang    F    Iowa State     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Niang notched 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 3PT, 2-4 FT), adding a pair of blocks in a win over Texas on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Niang was the leading scorer in the game for either team on Monday, and he led the Cyclones to a big bounce back win over the Longhorns. He continues to impress and has now scored in double digits in eight straight games. Niang performs at a high level night in and night out, and should be in your lineup every time the Cyclones tip it up.
Jonathan Holmes    F    Texas     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Holmes scored 17 points (6-15 FG, 3-7 3PT, 2-3 FT), adding 10 boards and two blocks on Monday in a loss to Iowa State.

Fantasy Analysis

Holmes notched his fourth double-double of the season on Monday in a strong performance for the Longhorns. After being held scoreless at Oklahoma State two weeks ago, Holmes has scored in double digits in three of his last four games. For the most part, he is very consistent and provides a good source of points and rebounds. Holmes averages 11.9 PPG and 6.7 RPG.
Robert Upshaw    C    Washington     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Upshaw was dismissed from the Huskies for an unspecified violation of team rules, the Seattle Times Reports. The center led the nation in blocks at 4.5 per game.

Fantasy Analysis

Upshaw was dismissed from Fresno State after his freshman season in 2012-13. He added 10.9 points and 8.2 rebounds to his blocks. The Huskies don't have an adequate replacement, but junior Gilles Dierickx should get more playing time. Jernard Jarreau is also out after knee surgery.
Isaiah Taylor    G    Texas     + Add To Watchlist
1/27/2015
Taylor finished with 17 points (6-16 FG, 1-4 3PT, 4-5 FT), along with three rebounds and eight assists in a loss to Iowa State on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Taylor led the team with 33 minutes of action on Monday which suggests that he is back to 100 percent after returning from a wrist injury. He's put up solid numbers since returning and should only get better. Taylor is averaging 13.1 PPG, 3.6 RPG and 3.7 APG.
