It was a very busy Monday and one of the busiest days for me in my two years at Rotoworld covering the games. Be sure to check out the player news for all the action you'll need. Here we go quick-hit style.

 

Editor's Note: Rotoworld's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $60,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Tuesday night's games. It's $25 to join and first prize is $8,500. Starts at 7:30pm ET on Tuesday. Here's the FanDuel link.

 

Martin Luther King Day is so much more about basketball, but it's still such a great day.

 

Shawn Marion - The One (miss): The Matrix shoots 7-of-8 from the field.

 

D.J. Augustin - He's must-own material. Crazy, huh?

 

Mario Chalmers - He's not sexy, but he's a solid guy to own in standard formats for treys and steals.

 

DeMarre Carroll - Make sure he's not on waivers.

 

Andray Blatche - Pick him up and hope the slump was due to conditioning. That's a reasonable guess.

 

Rodney Stuckey - Brandon Jennings is shockingly bad. 

 

George Hill - I think Danny Granger is going to lose some burn. He's terrible.

 

Ryan Kelly - He had 13 points and 35 minutes.

 

Brian Roberts - He's starting to figure out how to score and playing within himself. There have been too many bad shots all year.

 

Pero Antic - He had a career-high 17 points.

 

Greivis Vasquez- He had some minutes with Kyle Lowry.

 

Courtney Lee - I'm a little worried about Tony Allen.

 

Brandan Wright - The upside is intriguing.

 

DeJuan Blair - He'll start should Sammy D need to miss time.

 

Shelvin Mack - Kind of interesting seeing him play well while Jeff Teague is off.

 

Mo Williams - He could get more run with Nic Batum (finger) hurt. He's a better add than C.J. McCollum.

 

Kevin Seraphin - Trevor Booker shouldn't miss much time.

 

Shane Larkin - He's a nice stash behind Calderon and might see 20 mpg even at full strength.

 

Hollis Thompson - He got some extra burn with James Anderson's foul trouble.

 

Donatas Motiejunas/Omri Casspi - No thanks.

 

Kyle Singler - He's on the radar in deep leagues.

 

Chuck Hayes - Chuck Wagon double-double!

 

Manny Harris - L'Adorable.

 

Pablo Prigioni - Yikes, Knicks.

 

Elliot Williams - Stepping in for Tony Wroten.
