March 10, 2019, 9:27 pmAvery BradleyG, Memphis Grizzlies
Avery Bradley (left ankle soreness) scored 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 37 minutes of action in a win over the Magic on Sunday.
CJ Miles, who was also questionable coming into this game, had 13 points with three triples on 4-of-11 shooting. Bradley has been great for the Grizzlies and he and Mike Conley could have made a great backcourt if they were surrounded by pieces that would make the team a contender. However, this backcourt likely won't last past this season so we probably not get to see the lock-up defensive duo get put to use on a good team.
December 8, 2019, 8:02 pmRajon RondoPG, Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo is out on Sunday when the Lakers face the the Wolves due to a left hamstring strain.
The injury originally knocked him out of Friday's contest, and Rondo is pretty fragile nowadays so it is not a huge surprise for him to miss this one. Minutes should be available for Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook at this point.
December 8, 2019, 7:58 pmTerrance FergusonSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Terrance Ferguson (right hip) is not expected to play on Monday according to head coach Billy Donovan.
Ferguson has not been able to produce much when he is on the floor this season, beyond a 3-pointer or two on most night. You are better of ignoring him unless you are in a deep league.

Devonte' Graham struggled from the field (4-of-17 FG) on Sunday, but still managed to deliver 12 points, eight assists, six rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals and just one turnover.
Even if Graham has a rough night shooting, you can always bank on a healthy dose of 3-pointers and steals, and tonight he threw in some nice steals, turnover and rebound numbers. He continues to be one of the biggest shockers of the year.
December 8, 2019, 7:48 pmMiles BridgesSF, Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges had a strong night of shooting on Sunday as the Hornets met the Hawks, going 7-of-14 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line, on his way to 20 points, three 3-pointers, six rebounds and one steal.
Bridges received nearly 38 minutes in this game, which offered up plenty of field goal attempts to rack up those 20 points. In his prior three games Bridges couldn't crack 25 minutes.
December 8, 2019, 7:41 pmTerry RozierPG, Charlotte Hornets
Terry Rozier had an ugly showing against the Hawks on Sunday, reaching eight points on 3-of-13 shooting, with five rebounds, four assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and four turnovers.
Rozier's shot did not drop on Sunday and the four turnovers made the bad outshine the good in this stat line. These kinds of showings have thankfully not been the norm for Rozier as a Hornet, although it was the fear coming into the season.
December 8, 2019, 7:03 pmFred VanVleetPG, Toronto Raptors
Fred VanVleet (right knee contusion) will not return to Sunday's game versus the Sixers.
VanVleet left Sunday;s game during the second quarter and was followed by training staff. The injury is being called a contusion, so it doesn't sound too serious, but the Raptors will let VanVleet have the rest of the night off. Norman Powell would be the biggest beneficiary if VanVleet is forced to miss any time.

Derrick Favors (personal) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Pistons.
Favors has been away from the team ever since the death of his mother and the team is not rushing him back until he is ready to return. Jaxson Hayes will continue to benefit if Favors needs another night off.

Cory Joseph will start during Sunday's game versus the Mavs.
Joseph was questionable heading into Friday's game and played as well. Joseph is only worth owning if you are in need of assists.

Tyson Chandler (illness) is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game versus the Kings
Chandler was a late scratch for Saturday's game and it looks like the veteran will need another games rest. Isaiah Hartenstein will see the bulk of the back up center minutes if Chandler were to rest.

December 8, 2019, 5:54 pmJerami GrantSF, Denver Nuggets
Jerami Grant was hot from deep going 5-of-7 from behind the arc to go along with 15 points and two rebounds.
Grant was dialed in from deep and took seven of his eight shot attempts from there, He's been playing much better as of late, but Paul Millsap will continue to be a roadblock in his way.
