Memphis Grizzlies Fantasy Spin

Marc Gasol will not play on Thursday night against the Thunder. The Grizzlies didn't put him on the injury report 30 minutes ago, but there was no doubt Gasol wasn't going to play today. He is not going to travel as the Hornets try to make a play for the Spanish big man. Charlotte would be a great landing spot for him, so his fantasy value would go up quite a bit.

Oklahoma City Thunder Fantasy Spin

Paul George had another monster night with 39 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and six triples in a 132-122 win over the Magic on Tuesday. He finished 9-of-26 from the field and 15-of-16 from the line as the Thunder picked up their eighth win out of their last nine games. George is carrying the Thunder and his fantasy owners with his best stretch of the campaign, averaging an absurd 38.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.4 steals and 6.2 triples over his last five games. Next up on the schedule is a date with a Grizzlies team that could move a handful of starters before Thursday's deadline.
