Players to Look Out For

Darren Collison (Hornets) —With the injury to Chris Paul, Collison started at point guard and had 10 points, four assists and two steals in 25 minutes last Saturday. Paul could be out for about a month which increases the value of the rookie.

Marcus Thorton (Hornets) —Thorton should receive extended minutes off the bench with the injury to Paul. Thorton has scored 32 points over in last two games including a career high 20 last Friday.

C.J. Watson (Warriors) —Watson scored a season high 19 points vs. the Knicks last Friday. He is shooting 51 percent from the field and averaging a steal per game.

Wes Matthews (Jazz) —Matthews has scored in double-figures in four of his past six games. Deron Williams has missed the past two games which is why Matthews has been starting. The undrafted rookie has played well enough to receive extended minutes in the future.

Jamaal Tinsley (Grizzlies) —Tinsley signed a one-year deal with the Grizzlies on Saturday. In his eight seasons in the NBA he has averaged seven assists per game.
