Chris Paul nearly triple-doubled on Thursday with 23 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists while chipping in a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Paul looked great against the Lakers and he had a little extra lift in his bounce tonight. The 3-point shot was on point for him as he went 3-for-5 from deep and also 9-for-15 from the floor. He's struggled with shooting efficiency all season so hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

Jimmy Butler record his second triple-double of the season in Fridays 112-103 win over the Wizards, tallying 28 points (9-of-16 shooting), 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two 3s, one steal and two blocks.
Butler has been a fantastic top-20 play so far this season and appears to be in a perfect spot with the Heat to pile on fantasy value for his owners.
December 6, 2019, 10:49 pmLauri MarkkanenPF, Chicago Bulls
Lauri Markkanen continued his recent mini-run of solid play in Friday's 98-100 loss to the Warriors, going for 22 points, three steals, four 3-pointers and an 8-for-17 shooting line.
Markkanen remains merely a top-150 player on the full season but has turned things around in the last week and is sitting with more familiar top-70 value. This is his third straight game of respectable efficiency, as well as his third straight with four triples, and it seems like the buy-low window is starting to inch its way closed. His shooting percentage is due for a massive correction, and his points and threes will rise along with it. It should only be a matter of time.
December 6, 2019, 10:45 pmAnthony DavisPF-C, Los Angeles Lakers
Anthony Davis (shoulder) is listed as a starter for the Lakers on Friday.
Thankfully, AD has managed to keep his probable-to-active/starting streak alive so far. Until otherwise broken, expect said chain of status changes to continue night-on-night.

December 6, 2019, 10:45 pmKris DunnPG, Chicago Bulls
Kris Dunn made another start on Friday and came through with nine points, four rebounds, three steals and a block in 29 minutes of action.
This looked like the year where Chicago would give up on Dunn, but he's bounced back nicely with top-125 returns. As long as he's racking up steals (1.9 per game), he'll be a late-round guy at worst. Injuries to Otto Porter and Chandler Hutchison have opened the door, but to Dunn's credit he's stepped right in.
December 6, 2019, 10:42 pmWendell Carter Jr.C, Chicago Bulls
Wendell Carter Jr. wasn't anything to write home about on Friday with four points, 12 rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes of action.
WCJ has basically been a buy-low option all season long with just top-110 value and comfortable top-60 upside. His blocks, assists and free throw percentage have taken a tumble this season, offsetting gains in field goal percentage, rebounds and points. Carter should get it sorted out in time, and hopefully you're in on the action before that happens.
December 6, 2019, 10:41 pmDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
Davis Bertans made just 7-of-20 shots from the field in a loss to the Heat on Friday, but did his damage elsewhere, mustering 19 points, 10 rebounds, five 3s, one assist and two blocks.
Bertans has been a lights-out shooter as of late, catapulting him into fantasy's top-10 last week with 5.7 3s and 22.0 points per game.
December 6, 2019, 10:37 pmMoritz WagnerPF, Washington Wizards
Moritz Wagner was fantastic in 31 minutes on Friday, dropping 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting with nine rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist and two steals,
Wagner is looking a must-add in the wake of the Thomas Bryant three-week minimum absence. He's going to flirt with top-75 value on his good nights, making him a standard-league FA grab.
December 6, 2019, 10:33 pmPatrick PattersonPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Patrich Patterson has been ruled out of Friday's game with back spasms.
Patterson was a non-factor in the game, going 0-for-3 from the field, leaving him just two rebounds and one assist in seven minutes. He's not fantasy-relevant right now, so you can just move and and ignore his absence.

Tomas Satoransky didn't have it on Friday night, going for six points, five assists and two steals in a loss to the Warriors.
Sato still played 32 minutes and is a top-90 guy after a sluggish start to the year, so don't sweat this one despite a letdown in a great spot. This might even crack open a buy-low window, though Satoransky is typically underappreciated to begin with.
December 6, 2019, 10:31 pmGlenn Robinson IIISG, Golden State Warriors
Glenn Robinson III led the Warriors to close a win over the Bulls on Friday with a team-high 20 points, seven rebounds, two steals and two threes.
What a strange sentence. Robinson shot 8-of-12 from the field and has been floating right around the top-150 cut line for 12-team formats. He's worth a look if you want some occasional scoring upside and steady but moderate steals and threes.
