Fantasy News

  • Miles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges notched his first career double-double against the Wolves on Thursday with 11 points and 12 rebounds while adding four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    Bridges went 5-for-8 from the floor and logged 30 minutes which was the second highest on the team only behind Kemba Walker. He's still a bit unreliable due to the fact that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) could return by Saturday's game which would end Bridges' run.

  • Gary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris took a team-high 15 shot attempts on Thursday night but only hit six of them, posting 15 points with five rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    Harris' fantasy value is capped if he's not hitting his shots, and he simply hasn't gotten into any rhythm this season between his injuries and the emergence of Denver's younger bench players. he did tie for the team lead in scoring tonight but it'd be surprising if he finished the season with anything other than a late-round stretch. Malik Beasley chipped in 10 points, two threes and a steal on 4-of-9 from the field in 21 minutes off the pine.

  • Josh Okogie - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie netted 10 points on 5-of-11 shooting while adding three rebounds, two assists and two blocks against the Hornets on Thursday.

    This is the third consecutive game for Okogie playing at least 30 minutes and also his third consecutive game scoring in double-figures. He's not the most optimal streamer due to his inconsistencies with peripheral stats and the fact that the Wolves still have high usage guys on the floor.

  • Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones continued his strong play on Thursday with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting while handing out seven assists to go with two rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer.

    Jones is a guy that should be owned in all leagues right now as Derrick Rose (left elbow) and Jeff Teague (left foot) have been shut down for the year. The shooting numbers won't be pretty and there are plenty of owners who won't put up with it, but the steals and assists are too good to leave on the wire and Jones is a guy who can tilt a matchup in your favor.

  • Andrew Wiggins - G/F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points with five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer against the Hornets on Thursday.

    Wiggins went 8-for-15 from the floor but 3-for-7 at the line. He's a decent streaming source for points and triples but outside of that he can't be relied on for anything. There'll be the occasional line where it makes it tempting to hang onto him, but he just isn't standard-league material.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns had a full-line on Thursday against the Hornets with 21 points, 16 rebounds, six assists, a steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    He went 7-for-17 from the field and 5-for-6 at the line. Towns is going to end the year on a high note and could very well be the best fantasy player in these last weeks. The Wolves are tanking, but Towns looks like he'll play in every contest and as long as he's on the floor he's going to fill up the stat sheet.

  • Marvin Williams - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams got his shot corrected against the Wolves on Thursday with 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting to go with three rebounds, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Williams was absolutely terrible shooting the ball over the past week, but he finally got it going from the floor and he added defensive stats as a bonus. He's worth holding onto and picking up if he's been dropped as the Hornets play a back-to-back set on Saturday and Sunday.

  • Monte Morris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris delivered 11 efficient points on Thursday, going 4-of-5 from the field with four assists, a steal, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 23 minutes.

    Morris remains a great 9-cat play for his low turnovers and he's settled into a nice rhythm since Isaiah Thomas got bounced from the rotation. He'll have more eye-catching nights than this from time to time but he's a really steady, late-round guy. Jamal Murray put up 15 points, four rebounds, two blocks and a triple while hitting 7-of-14 from the field as Denver's guards had quiet but effective nights.

  • Dario Saric - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Dario Saric scored 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, an assist and two 3-pointers on Thursday.

    Saric finally put up a decent line after getting ample opportunity and the Wolves have shut down three of their rotational players which means he has a good chance at late-round value to end the year. The Wolves play again on Saturday so if you need some points and rebounds he's worth holding onto.

  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes (right quad strain) is listed as available for Thursday's game against the Pistons.

    Holmes was probable heading into the contest so it looks as though he's avoided any setbacks. Feel free to use him if you normally would.

  • Mason Plumlee - F/C - Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee came off the bench for four points, 11 rebounds, four assists and a steal in Thursday's win over the Wizards.

    Plumlee didn't get in on the scoring act in a game where every other Nugget who saw the floor hit double digits, but he did bring in a solid night elsewhere in the box score. He's a nice deep-league source of rebounds, blocks and out-of-position assists as long as you can stomach his poor free throw shooting.

  • Rodney McGruder - G/F - Miami Heat

    Rodney McGruder (left knee soreness) is doubtful to play on Friday against the Bucks.

    McGruder has missed the last two games but was playing minimal minutes before getting hurt anyway. Further injuries might open things up for him again but he's safe to leave on waivers until he strings some good games together.

  • Justise Winslow - F - Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow (right thigh bruise) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Winslow has missed the last three games and the Heat haven't offered up a potential timeline for a return. This is still an upgrade since Winslow was immediately ruled out for Wednesday's game, so hopefully he can return to the lineup next week, if not before. Goran Dragic has been playing very well off the bench and is worth an add in all formats, while Derrick Jones Jr. has been starting and is worth a look if you need blocks and threes.

  • Bam Adebayo - C/F - Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo (right hip bruise) is questionable for Friday's matchup with the Bucks.

    Adebayo is coming off a 15-rebound, 29-minute game against the Spurs and didn't look to be hurt, so hopefully this is only a minor injury. Bam has been a solid middle-round producer since being promoted to the starting five, so fantasy owners will miss his presence if he's forced to miss any time. Hassan Whiteside and Kelly Olynyk would split the center minutes with a lot of smaller lineups opening up time for James Johnson and Derrick Jones Jr.

  • Donte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (bilateral heel bursitis) will not play on Friday.

    DiVincenzo has been dealing with heel injuries for months now, and until he gains some traction in the rotation he's safe to avoid in all redraft formats.
