• Al Horford
    F/C, Boston Celtics

    Al Horford (left knee soreness) is probable for Sunday's game against the Magic.

    Horford has dropped a few monster lines before cooling down with a pedestrian line on Friday. The Celtics' peak upside goes with Horford, and they will need him to be at his best in the playoffs.

Fantasy News

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell scored 15 points in a start on Saturday with three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Snell has played 24 minutes or more in 5 straight games and has hit 11 threes over that stretch. He is a 3-point streamer and that is it.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown Jr. double-doubled on Saturday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals in 31 minutes.

    This was a monster line but Andre Drummond (eye) was out and Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) left early opening up more usage for Brown. Brown is trending up lately and is averaging 8.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.1 steals in the month of December. He is producing standard-league value lately and is worth a look to see if he can continue to improve.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose double-doubled on Saturday with 20 points (10-of-21 from the field) and 12 assists in a 115-107 win over the Rockets.

    Rose is producing late-round value with points and assists as his biggest contributions with averages of 16.4 points and 6.0 assists per game.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood double-doubled with 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting and 12 rebounds in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Blake Griffin left this game with knee soreness and did not return. Wood is a per-minute monster and could be a standard-league player in only 25 minutes per game. He is worth a look in standard-leagues if Griffin misses extended time.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Rick Carlisle said that the X-rays were negative on Luka Doncic's ankle, but he doesn't expect Doncic to play on Monday.

    Stay tuned for an update on Doncic's status as it gets closer to Monday. Lets just hope its not serious and the sophomore sensation can return quickly. Jalen Brunson started the second half for Doncic and scored 18 points with eight assists in 34 minutes. Brunson will be worth streaming on Monday if Doncic is sidelined and Kristaps Porzingis (22 points and 14 rebounds on Saturday) should see a big boost in usage if Doncic is out.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the Cavs on Saturday with 29 points on 12-of-20 shooting in just 24 minutes.

    Giannis was questionable with right quad soreness but suited up and barely broke a sweat on his way to 29 points. The free throw percentage is a big weakness for Giannis, but everything else is gravy for the MVP.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton chipped in 24 points with six assists on Saturday, shooting 8-of-12 from the field and 3-of-4 from deep.

    Middleton is hot lately, shooting .500 from the field or greater in eight of his last nine games. He is inside the top-50 and his percentages have a lot to do with it as he is now shooting .500 from the field on the season and .895 from the line.

  • Tim Hardaway Jr.
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Tim Hardaway Jr. was able to score 28 points, along with five rebounds, three assists, six 3-pointers and an 11-for-22 shooting line in Saturday's 118-122 OT loss to the Heat.

    Hardaway was hot a couple weeks ago, went into a mini-slump, popped off for 29 points against the Kings two games ago, followed that up with a two-point dud and now drops this one on us. He's as streaky as ever but should probably be added where available in the wake of Luka Doncic's injury. The Mavs need someone to bring the perimeter scoring, and it doesn't look like THJ will have any threats to his shots. He's a top-175/150 player on the year and should improve upon that while Doncic is out.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with five rebounds in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Hill should see a boost in value with Eric Bledsoe (shin) expected to be out the next two weeks. Donte DiVincenzo (15 points in 25 minutes) got the start and is the preferred option while Beldsoe is out, but Hill can produce late-round value in the short term and is worth a look in standard leagues.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis finished Saturday's loss with 22 points, 14 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes of action.

    Porzingis went just 7-of-21 from the field, but we're about to see what he looks like as the go-to guy in Dallas with Luka Doncic expected to miss some time. KP has been a top-75 option this season as the team's second fiddle but could be in for some old fashioned lines in the coming days.
