Cleveland Cavs Fantasy Spin

Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com said the Cavaliers have received calls for Kevin Love. Before his fantasy owners get their hopes up, Fedor didn’t sound optimistic that a deal would happen. "As I've written numerous times, it will take close to the perfect deal for the Cavs to pull the trigger," Fedor said. There aren’t any rival teams mentioned in the report, but between Love’s massive contract, Cleveland’s desire to hold onto him and questions about his health, things aren’t looking great for his rest-of-season value.

Portland Trail Blazers Fantasy Spin

C.J. McCollum had a night to forget on Monday vs. the Kings, scoring six points on 2-of-14 shooting with six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes. That's a season-low in points and it's just the second time he's been held to single digits -- he had an 8-point game vs. the Pelicans on Nov. 1. McCollum's fantasy value is on pace to decline for the second straight season, and this time it's because his assists are down by nearly one per game and he hasn't been as prolific in steals and triples. He's still sitting inside the top-80, but Portland's decision to move him off the ball more often hasn't helped.
