Lou Williams was a healthy DNP-CD on Friday, as coach Mike Budenholzer opted for a bigger lineup.
Williams is healthy but he's fallen out of the rotation quickly. "Lou has done a ton of good things and he has helped us through the year," Budenholzer said. "[Friday], we gave some other guys some minutes and some opportunities." There's no reason to hang onto Williams in most fantasy leagues, though deep-league owners may want to wait a while in case his playing time returns vs. the Clippers on Saturday.
James Johnson did not leave the Grizzlies' bench during Friday's win in Chicago.
He recently returned from an ankle injury and there are no indications that his absence was injury-related, so we're chalking this up as a DNP-CD. Mike Miller was hot from downtown, and Kosta Koufos was playing very well and providing necessary size to combat the Bulls, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Johnson back in the rotation for Saturday's game vs. the Bobcats.
O.J. Mayo may face a suspension for hitting Greg Stiemsma in the throat during Friday's game.
Mayo lashed out in obvious anger and it wouldn't be surprising to see the league slap him with a one-game suspension, especially since the contact was close to Stiemsma's head. He's averaging 6.8 points on 36.1 percent shooting in the Bucks' past five games, and continues to disappoint after signing a three-year, $24 million contract last summer.
