|12/22/2014||Jarrett Jack, G|

|12/22/2014||Kobe Bryant, G|
|Bryant had another horrible shooting night Sunday, going 8 for 30 in a 25-point effort against the Kings.
Analysis: He's 11 for 45 (24.4 percent) while totaling 34 points in his last two games. He's killing your fantasy team's field-goal percentage all by himself.

|12/22/2014||Mo Williams, G|
|Williams scored 24 points Sunday in Minnesota's loss to Indiana.

|12/22/2014||Anthony Davis, F-C|
|Davis scored 38 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in New Orleans' win over Oklahoma City.
Analysis: This sort of performance has become customary for Davis. He's one of the best players in the NBA.

|12/21/2014||Danilo Gallinari, SF|
|Gallinari has a torn meniscus in his right knee and is expected to soon undergo surgery. The team has yet to announce a timetable for his return.
Analysis: Gallinari turned in one of his best games of the season Saturday in a win over Indiana as he scored 19 points, including a 3-pointer to spark a critical fourth-quarter run. He was back on the court this year after missing nearly 18 months with a torn ACL in his left knee that required three surgeries.
|12/21/2014||Spencer Hawes, F-C|
|Hawes is out with a knee injury.
Analysis: He said he's trying to overcome some general soreness and is close to returning.
|12/21/2014||Lance Stephenson, G-F|
