Wes Matthews: (Hip) Looks Good in Starting Role
Update: Matthews started and recorded 20 points (7-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 39 minutes during Thursday's win over Denver, but he had a tough time moving around with his hip pointer injury, while his recovering thumb was hit again, The Oregonian reports.

Recommendation: Matthews also posted four assists, three rebounds, one steal, and one block on the evening. Following the game, he said, "I felt alright. I wasn't all the way me. Not 100 percent. I was able to be effective. I don't feel like I hurt the team... I don't think there was anything to set me back, I hope." We'll keep an eye on his various injuries going forward, but it appears as if he'll be a safe fantasy play Saturday against Phoenix.
