February 6, 2019, 10:52 pmD'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets
D'Angelo Russell was effective as the Nets' Alpha in a win over the Nuggets on Wednesday, dropping 27 points (10-of-23 shooting), six boards, 11 dimes and six 3-pointers.
Russell was on fire tonight and it was enough to spearhead an upset over the Nuggets. It took a while, but we're all enjoying Russell's long-awaited breakout season. It's been a rocky road but at least we know his game is headed in the right direction.
February 22, 2019, 9:26 pmBradley Beal - G - Washington Wizards
Bradley Beal put up a laudable effort in Friday's loss to the Hornets, recording a game-high 46 points on 16-of-25 shooting from the field and 10-of-10 shooting from the line.
Beal also added six boards, seven dimes, four triples and a block to the box score on the night but unfortunately, his heroics were just not enough to squeeze out the win. As long as Beal is playing at this level, he's going to flirt with top-15 value in 8/9-cat.
February 22, 2019, 9:24 pmKris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls
Kris Dunn (back contusion) returned from a one-game absence to finish Friday’s road win over the Magic with eight points (0-for-2 from deep), three rebounds, two assists, a steal and two turnovers in 29 minutes.
This makes three straight duds for Dunn and he’s starting to look like an afterthought in Chicago’s offense as he was benched on the final game-winning play for Robin Lopez. He can be benched in roto for now but owners in H2H looking to make a late-season push for the playoffs should keep their eyes peeled for a hot free-agent replacement.
February 22, 2019, 9:19 pmBlake Griffin - F - Detroit Pistons
Blake Griffin was ejected with 4:19 left in the third quarter of Friday's game vs. the Hawks.
Griffin finished the game with 14 points, two 3s, four rebounds and a block in 23 minutes.

February 22, 2019, 9:04 pmMike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers
Mike Muscala (sprained right ankle) is listed as questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Pelicans.
Muscala is a new addition to the Lakers but has only played in one game so far. It's conceivable he could carve out some deep-league value as a stetch-5 but we'll have to see him on the court first.
February 22, 2019, 7:15 pmKris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls
Kris Dunn (back contusion) will start on Friday vs. the Magic.
It's good to see Dunn is back in action but more importantly, we're hopeful he can get his game back on track as he's returned value outside the top-200 in 8/9-cat over the last few weeks.
February 22, 2019, 7:05 pmWayne Ellington - G - Detroit Pistons
Wayne Ellington will get the start on Friday vs. the Hawks.
This move will shift Luke Kennard to the bench. Ellington has a chance to lead all waiver guys in trey bombs and he’s a good add if you need a 3-point specialist, though he won’t do much else.

February 22, 2019, 7:01 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges will draw the start on Friday vs. the Wizards while Jeremy Lamb will come off the bench.
This came out of nowhere and we’ll have to see if it’s a short term move or one that sticks.

February 22, 2019, 6:58 pmLuka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.
Doncic’s minor injuries have piled up enough to force him to sit this one. Doncic is day-to-day and hopefully he’ll be fine after a day or two or rest. Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke will assume the point guard duties for as long as Doncic is out.

February 22, 2019, 6:49 pmJevon Carter - G - Memphis Grizzlies
Jevon Carter (right knee soreness) and Tyler Dorsey (left knee soreness) will play on Friday vs. the Clippers.
There’s no real fantasy implication here; we’re just passing the news along.

February 22, 2019, 6:34 pmKyle Anderson - F - Memphis Grizzlies
Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will have another medical consultation next week and remains without a timetable to return.
This is at least the third consultation he’s gotten so far so it looks like there’s some uncertainty as to his injury or how to proceed with rehab. Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles, Bruno Caboclo and Chandler Parson will divvy up his minutes.
