Wild's Alex Stalock: Makes 16 saves in shootout victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stalock made 16 saves on 17 shots in relief of an injured Devan Dubnyk Tuesday against the Flames.

Stalock started the second period and guided the Wild to a shootout victory. It's unclear the severity of Dubnyk's injury, but it seems he was injured while rolling over after robbing Matthew Tkachuk early in the first period. Stalock has only made nine appearances this season, posting a 4-3-1 record with a .907 save percentage. The 30-year-old is capable of stepping up if he's forced into the starting role, but for now, Stalock remains an average spot start whenever he gets the nod in place of the workhorse Dubnyk.

Spurs' Danny Green: Three points in return from groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (groin) tallied three points (1-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 24 minutes in Tuesday's 95-89 loss to the Mavericks.

Green had missed last Saturday's contest versus the Suns due to groin tightness and saw his shot go cold in his return Tuesday. The 30-year-old has been slumping from the field overall in December, as he's now sporting an unsightly 34.1 percent success rate from the field, including 32.1 percent from three-point range, in six contests to start the month. With Kawhi Leonard (quad) now back in action, except to also see Green progressively return to more of the defensive specialist role he's played the last two seasons, a pair of campaigns in which his average shot attempts dropped from the 9.4 he'd posted in the 2014-15 season to 7.1 and 6.6, respectively.

Spurs' Pau Gasol: Scoreless in 22 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gasol (rest) was scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) across 22 minutes in Tuesday's 95-89 loss to the Mavericks but hauled in nine rebounds and dished out two assists.

Gasol saw a notable drop in usage with Kawhi Leonard's return, as his two shot attempts represented his lowest number in that category this season. The veteran saw his average shot attempts go down to a career-low 9.4 in his first San Antonio campaign in 2016-17 while playing alongside Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, so Tuesday's reduced offensive role could more or less be the norm moving forward. Gasol continued to offer excellent work on the glass, however, as factoring in Tuesday's production, he's now hauled in between six and 11 rebounds in 13 of his last 15 games.

Spurs' Rudy Gay: Bench-high scoring total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay managed 21 points (8-11 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 27 minutes in Tuesday's 95-89 loss to the Mavericks.

Despite making a move back to the bench with the return of Kawhi Leonard (quad), Gay generated one of his most well-rounded efforts of the campaign. The 12-year veteran was red-hot from the field for the third consecutive game as well, as he's posted no less than a 63.6 percent success rate in that trio of contests. Gay's overall playing time and production is highly likely to be affected once Leonard is back to a full allotment of minutes, but he projects to still remain a viable multi-category producer -- albeit on a smaller scale than what he's demonstrated thus far -- for fantasy owners in both season-long and daily formats.

Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge: Team-high scoring total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aldridge produced 23 points (9-23 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds and two assists across 38 minutes in Tuesday's 95-89 loss to the Mavericks.

Aldridge still sported sky-high usage despite the return of Kawhi Leonard (quad), with his 23 shot attempts ranking as his second highest total in that category this season. The veteran big man has scored at least 20 points in four of the six December contests he's played, with three of those double-doubles. Aldridge has been rewarding fantasy owners thus far with production befitting his glory days in Portland, but his overall offensive involvement will undoubtedly take a hit to some degree once Leonard returns to a full workload.
