• Chris Boucher - F - Toronto Raptors

    Chris Boucher is expected to see extra minutes on Thursday against Lakers with Serge Ibaka suspended.

    With Ibaka suspended, the Raptors need Boucher to pick up some extra minutes at C, though Pascal Siakam will also see some run at the five. The Lakers are a good matchup for opposing bigs, but Boucher is unlikely to receive that much run to take advantage, barring a blowout.

  • Andrew Bogut - C - Golden State Warriors

    Andrew Bogut is expected to be available to play in Monday's game versus the Spurs.

    Bogut was expected to join at some point during the Warriors' road trip, but the timetable came quicker with DeMarcus Cousins (sore right foot) being scheduled for an MRI. Bogut was experiencing jet lag over the last few days, so his minutes may be limited in his NBA return.

  • Christian Wood - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    The Bucks are expected to waive Christian Wood.

    Wood is being released in order to make room for Tim Frazier on the roster. Wood is still young and should garner interest around the league, but there is no reason to pay him any attention this season.

  • Tim Frazier - PG - Milwaukee Bucks

    According to Chris Haynes, the Bucks are expected to sign Tim Frazier.

    The signing comes in the wake of Malcolm Brogdon's injury. The Bucks are expected to waive Christian Wood in order to make room for Frazier on the roster.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    According to Raptors' beat writer Ryan Wolstat, Kawhi Leonard is not expected to play in Monday's game versus the Knicks.

    Wolstat said it would be bizarre to either Leonard or Lowry suited up against a tanking Knicks' team. Serge Ibaka (suspension) will be out as well leaving the bulk of the workload to be handled by Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol and Fred VanVleet.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    According Raptors' beat writer Ryan Wolstat, Kyle Lowry (left ankle sprain) is not expected to play in Monday's game versus the Knicks.

    Wolstat also said he would expect Kawhi Leonard (load management) to sit out this one as well. Jeremy Lin drew the start in place of Lowry on Sunday, but Fred VanVleet has returned from his lengthy absence and played 31 minutes. VanVleet is the biggest beneficiary if Lowry sits out.

  • Lou Williams - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams scored 25 points and hit the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer in a 119-116 win over the Nets on Sunday.

    He added six rebounds, two assists and two triples to the box score while shooting 8-of-16 from the field. Williams has turned it on in the second half of the season and has seemingly locked in the Sixth Man of the Year award. He should return top-100 value for the remainder of the season.

  • Danilo Gallinari - F - Los Angeles Clippers

    Danilo Gallinari put up 20 points with 11 rebounds and five assists on 7-of-17 shooting in 31 minutes in a win over the Nets on Sunday.

    Gallinari continues to be a top-30 value this season and has actually managed to have a healthy season. Montrezl Harrell also had a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double with three blocks on 8-of-17 shooting. These guys are two of the main reasons that the Clippers hold a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up 14 points with 10 assists on 5-of-12 shooting in a win over the Nets on Sunday.

    He made three triples and added two rebounds to the stat sheet. He is a solid two-way player and can be labeled as an assists and steals specialist in most formats. He should provide late-round value for the remainder of the season and is worth owning in standard formats.

  • D'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets

    D'Angelo Russell put up 32 points on 13-of-25 shooting with five rebounds, 10 assists and six 3-pointers against the Clippers on Sunday.

    The Nets went on a 10-0 run with 1:02 left in the fourth quarter to tie the game. They did all of that just for Lou Wiliams to hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer. Russell continues to be the best player on the Nets and boasts top-60 value on the season. The Nets will need him to stay on top of his game if they want to make it into the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll played well on Sunday in a loss to the Clippers as he had 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds.

    He made all five of his attempts from the stripe and went 3-of-6 from deep. Carroll has been a deep-league shooting specialist this season and remains in that conversation as long as he remains on the Nets bench.
