Will Barton supplied 19 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block across 29 minutes in Sunday's 101-96 win over the Knicks.
Barton's minutes still seem to remain fairly variable from game to game, but he's been a reliable producer for his fantasy owners more often than not lately. He's topped 15 points in all but two of his last eight games, and is averaging 6.4 boards while shooting 51 percent from the field over that span.
Jared Boll took a puck to the throat/collarbone area during Monday's practice, Shawn Mitchell of the Columbus Dispatch reports. He will receive further evaluation and more will be known Tuesday morning.
The unfortunate accident during Monday's practice could put Boll's status for Tuesday's contest in doubt, but another update should come at some point on gameday. The Columbus Blue Jackets have 12 other forwards should he miss the contest, likely locking in the others if he's unable to go.
Derrick Williams played 13 minutes in Sunday's 101-96 loss to the Nuggets, finishing with six points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and three rebounds.
Williams had begun to see more run off the bench toward the end of January, but now that the starting lineup is back to full health again with Carmelo Anthony (knee) back in the fold, the 24-year-old's opportunities for playing time appear to have disintegrated. He's played no more than 16 minutes in any of the New York Knicks ' four games in February and is averaging 4.3 points and two rebounds over that stretch.
Marc Gasol is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Blazers due to soreness in his right foot, Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports.
Gasol is also nursing a minor knee injury, but the expectation is that he'll play through the ailments with the All-Star break approaching. Still, given the questionable designation, there's a chance he could be held out, so be sure to double-check Gasol's status prior to game time. The 31-year-old is coming off of a 22-point, six-rebound performance in Saturday's loss to Dallas.
Gary Harris played a whopping 40 minutes in Sunday's 101-96 win over the Knicks, but was held to four points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal.
Harris has received at least 35 minutes in four of the Denver Nuggets ' last five games, but aside from an 18-point outburst against the Pacers on Jan. 30, he's been largely quiet offensively in the other three contests. In those games, Harris is averaging seven points (on 36% shooting), 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.3 steals. He'll continue to earn heavy court time thanks to his lock-down defensive abilities, but don't expect the minutes to translate to highly valuable fantasy production.
