• Darius Miller scored 20 points on a career-high six 3-pointers in the Pelicans’ win over the Rockets on Friday night.

    Miller’s 6-of-10 night from deep could be a good sign for his future. His 3-point volume appears to be on the rise and he’s hitting 3-pointers at a 43 percent clip for the season. Miller could end up being the guy to be inserted into the starting lineup after the injury to DeMarcus Cousins. With more minutes and more shots going up, Miller is quite the option as a 3-point specialist.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle finally got it going on Monday night in a 123-105 blowout win over the Cavs with a season-high 30 points (12-for-17 FGs, 3-for-5 FTs) and seven boards, four dimes, two steals, one block, three triples and just one turnover in 32 minutes.

    Randle had been one of the worst regular players in fantasy until this game. His turnovers are up, his free throw percentage is down and his field goal percentage is still down significantly even after today's jump. He should continue to improve, but last season's middle-round finish doesn't look like it'll be replicated this season.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham was serviceable in Monday's 96-132 loss to the Raptors, finishing with 11 points, six assists, two rebounds, a steal, three triples and four turnovers.

    Graham has been the lone reliable fantasy contributor for the Hornets this year and even he had a rough outing in this blowout. He's definitely the guy worth owning of this bunch and should bounce back in his next one.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier didn't do much in Monday's blowout loss to the Raptors, finishing with 10 points (4-of-11 shooting) to go with three assists, three rebounds, two turnovers and two triples in 26 minutes.

    The only thing that's scary about Terry this year are his shooting percentages. He has been a far cry from the top-70 value that he was drafted at. With so many performances like these where he gives you little to work with, it'll be tough to see him get anywhere close to his ADP this season.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris hit 12-of-13 free throws as part a 23-point game with six rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes in a big win over the Cavs on Monday.

    Morris continues to be the most consistent fantasy option on the Knicks. In total season stats, he's ranked 29th in 9-cat leagues. There's not a lot to count on when it comes to the Knicks right now, but Morris is the closest thing.

  • Miles Bridges
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges had another middleing performance on Monday night, scoring 13 points (5-of-10 from the floor) to go with five rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block, two turnovers and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    This is actually one of his better lines of the season, which tells you all you need to know about his fantasy credentials through the first month of the year. He came into tonight putting up top-210 value and hasn't come close to resembling the top-80 guy he was towards the end of last seaosn. It's going to take a good deal of effort for him to match his ADP this year.

  • Alfonzo McKinnie
    SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Alfonzo McKinnie came off the bench to score 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting in addition to six rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes in a 105-123 blowout loss to the Knicks on Monday.

    Cedi Osman shifted to the four with Kevin Love out, opening up some extra minutes for McKinnie. Love said he expects to play in the Cavs next game, but this is a reminder that the former Warrior could put up some numbers should Love get traded and the Cavs lean toward tanking.

  • Ante Zizic
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Ante Zizic had five points on 2-of-4 shooting and six rebounds in 20 minutes as the Cavs were blown out by the Knicks on Monday.

    It was Zizic's second game back from injury this season, but the big minutes will likely be an aberration. This game was a blowout and Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. were absent tonight.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. scored a career-high 18 points (6-for-11 FGs, 3-for-8 FTs) along with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes in his first career start.

    The career mark isn't a surprise since he had never exceeded 24 minutes until tonight. Kevin Love (back) says he's playing on Wednesday, so we may not see another Porter start for quite a while.

  • Hamidou Diallo
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Hamidou Diallo (left knee sprain) is out for Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Diallo will be re-evaluated prior to Tuesday's game against the Lakers. Terrence Ferguson will get another start in his stead.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby went to the locker room after apparently catching an elbow in the eye on Monday, but he is expected to return.

    Anunoby has a career-high 24 points through three quarters and the Raptors lead is big. He may not be needed, but Anunoby would likely welcome the chance to add onto his big game.
