Wes Matthews scored 11 points with three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Suns on Thursday.
Advice: He did have some tape on his left shoulder after sustaining a minor injury on Wednesday -- he did return. Matthews was starting to get it going this month, but a lot of that was due to Dennis Smith Jr. not playing. Matthews could still be worth a hold in 12-team leagues, but he'll have his ups and downs.

Wes Matthews (shoulder) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Wednesday, but he is probable to return.
Advice: He committed a foul to get out of the game, and was grabbing at his left shoulder. After being extremely durable to start his career, Matthews hasn't been the same since his Achilles injury in 2015. If he's out, that means more minutes for Devin Harris, Dorian Finney-Smith and Jalen Brunson.

Wes Matthews scored 21 points with three rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.
Advice: He's off to a great start this month and came in playing well over his previous three, averaging 15.3 points, 6.4 boards, 3.0 dimes, 1.3 steals and 2.3 treys. Dennis Smith Jr. (wrist) being out of the lineup should get Wes more chances to move along the three-point line, especially because the guys filling some of DSJ's minutes aren't great catch-and-shoot guys. He'll have his bad games, but Wes is playing well enough to be owned in stadnard leagues
