Antonio Blakeney wasn't shy on Saturday night, hitting six of his 19 shots to finish with 13 points, three rebounds and one assist against the Raptors.
Blakeney played a team-high 33 minutes but it's hard to argue that he was productive. That's the quandary that deep-league owners face, as his scoring upside might not be worth the far-more-frequent percentage-destroying lines.
November 12, 2019, 9:41 pmHamidou DialloSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Hamidou Diallo had only two points on 1-of-4 shooting and pitched in three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one turnover in a 111-85 loss to the Pacers.
Diallo has gotten some fantasy buzz recently as he has been receiving plenty of minutes in the early going. He has averaged 22.0 minutes per game so far and could continue to see plenty of opportunity, especially with Terrance Ferguson (personal) sidelined.
November 12, 2019, 9:34 pmDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danilo Gallinari finished with 14 points, four rebounds, and one steal on 3-of-8 shooting but was able to nail all eight of his attempts at the foul line.
Gallo didn't have a great game but was able to minimize the damage to fantasy rosters by going perfect at the foul line (8-of-8). He and the Thunder will look to rebound on Friday as they take on the Sixers.
November 12, 2019, 9:34 pmDarius GarlandPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Darius Garland was back to underwhelming on Tuesday with six points (3-for-10 FGs), three rebounds, two assists and three steals in 28 minutes in a road loss to the Sixers.
Garland had strung together two six-assist, double digit scoring games prior to this one. Let this serve as the reminder that he's going to need more time before he starts consistently putting up strong stat lines. 19-year-old point guards typically need more seasoning than he's had so far. Cedi Osman might need a bit more too, as he went for just four points and not much else in 32 minutes on Tuesday. He's a 3-point streamer at this point.
November 12, 2019, 9:27 pmHassan WhitesideC, Portland Trail Blazers
Hassan Whiteside will play and start on Tuesday vs. the Kings despite dealing with a right foot sprain.
Whiteside is the only big man with experience who is healthy for the Blazers and should be in line for another great performance. He will be matched up against Richaun Holmes, Dewayne Dedmon and Harry Giles.
November 12, 2019, 9:24 pmKevin Porter Jr.SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Porter Jr. (hip) returned after a first-half fall and looked good in the second half of Tuesday's close loss to the Sixers.
Porter ended up playing 16 minutes and putting up four points, two boards and one assist. He's hovering around 19 minutes per game right now, but he's shown the flashes the Cavs expected out of him from time to time. He's definitely a player to watch in the second half of the season as Cleveland should increase the minutes for their young players.
November 12, 2019, 9:22 pmRodney HoodSG, Portland Trail Blazers
Rodney Hood (back spasms) might not play on Tuesday vs. the Kings despite previously being listed as probable.
This news comes as a surprise as he was previously listed as probable. The news isn't official so continue to monitor as we get closer to tip-off. It does seem unlikely that he will take the floor after all. If he is unable to play, look for Kent Bazemore, Anfernee Simons and Mario Hezonja to pick up additional minutes

November 12, 2019, 9:18 pmChris PaulPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Chris Paul scored seven points and added five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and three turnovers on 2-of-7 shooting while he missed one of his four free throw attempts.
Paul only saw 25 minutes in this contest as the Thunder were blown out by the Pacers on Tuesday. It was a disappointing night for everyone on the Thunder. They will look to get back on track Friday as they take on the Sixers.
November 12, 2019, 9:07 pmTony SnellSG, Detroit Pistons
Tony Snell has returned to the Pistons' bench on Tuesday and reportedly looks "OK".
Snell headed to the locker room for a brief period during the third quarter but has already returned to the bench. Continue to monitor for updates but it appears that he is good to re-enter the ball game.

Malik Beasley will be forced to miss Tuesday's matchup vs. the Hawks due to an illness.
Beasley was questionable heading into the matchup but was unable to shake his illness. His next opportunity to take the court will come on Thursday.
