• DeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre' Bembry had 14 points (missed his only 3), six rebounds, five assists and a steal in a team-high 41 minutes in Friday's defeat of the Sixers.

    This make 5-of-7 games Bembry has scored at least 10 points since Kent Bazemore sprained his ankle. He's been putting up some pretty impressive counting stats but his poor shooting (43.9 percent from the field, 55.6 percent from the stripe) leaves him with just top-190 9-cat value in that span. Thus, he's better for points formats, punt-builds and deeper leagues.

  • Alex Abrines - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Alex Abrines is active, but will not play in Monday's game versus the Knicks.

    Thunder head coach Billy Donovan said he is still working his way back and he is not expected to play in tomorrow's game either. Terrance Ferguson will continue to benefit from Abrines' absence, but isn't worth a look in anything but the deepest of leagues.

  • Enes Kanter - C - New York Knicks

    According to Ian Begley of ESPN, Knicks' head coach David Fizdale said his priority is to get Luke Kornet and Mitchell Robinson minutes at center.

    When asked if Kanter was going to play against the Thunder on Monday morning, Fizdale said the flow of the game would determine his playing time. ā€œIā€™m going to let the game tell me,ā€ said Fizdale. This isn't good news for who have stock in Kanter and creates a mess of a situation for in the Knicks' frontcourt going forward.

  • Donte DiVincenzo - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo (heel bursitis) is no longer on the injury report.

    DiVincenzo has been dealing with heel issues for a few weeks now but remains irrelevant in fantasy whether he's healthy or not.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr. - F - Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. put up 18 points with eight rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes in a loss to the Wolves on Sunday.

    He has been a top-50 option over the past two weeks and is definitely the main man off the bench for the Suns. He added four 3-pointers and shot 7-of-12 from the field. Josh Jackson, who is barely inside the top-300 on the season, scored 15 points with five rebounds.

  • Mikal Bridges - F - Phoenix Suns

    Mikal Bridges played 29 minutes in Sunday’s loss to the Wolves and scored three points with three steals on 1-of-3 shooting.

    Although he does not add much to the box score aside from defensive stats, he is a middle-round value over the past month due to his efficiency and defensive numbers. His consistency is an issue, but his defense will always keep him in the middle-round value range.

  • De'Anthony Melton - G - Phoenix Suns

    De'Anthony Melton only scored four points with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in a loss to the Wolves on Sunday.

    He has been worth owning in most formats since he gained the starting job and is just outside the top-100 over the past two weeks. However, he did not have it in this one and he picked up three fouls in his 13 minutes which could have been a reason his minutes were down. Do not overthink this performance, but keep an eye on his minutes and level of play going forward.

  • Dragan Bender - F - Phoenix Suns

    Dragan Bender put up season-highs of 12 points, 10 rebounds and 29 minutes in a start on Sunday in a loss to the Wolves.

    He started with Deandre Ayton missing this one with a left ankle sprain. He was a decent stream for this game, but missed all five of his attempts from deep and only shot 4-of-7 from the line. He should go back to receiving 10 or fewer bench minutes upon Ayton's return.

  • Derrick Rose - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Derrick Rose scored 31 points and hit a game-winning step-back jumper with 0.6 seconds left to beat the Suns on Sunday

    He scored 29 of his 31 points in the second half and completely dominated the end of this game. The sixth man of the year candidate is a top-70 value and is one of the biggest surprises of this fantasy season. Jeff Teague, who was questionable to play due to illness, suited up and scored four points with five rebounds and eight assists.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns dropped 30 points with 12 rebounds, four assists and four steals in a 116-114 win over the Suns on Sunday.

    He shot just 8-of-22 from the field, but added one 3-pointer and one block while shooting 13-of-13 from the line. He scored 28 of his 30 points in the first half and had an amazing performance aside from his field goal percentage. He is dominating as expected and is a top-10 play on the season and top-3 over the past month.

  • Taj Gibson - F - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Taj Gibson put up 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting with five rebounds and two defensive stats (one steal and one block) in a win over the Suns on Sunday.

    Gibson is just outside the top-120 on the season and is a good rebounding and field goal percentage specialist. His minutes have dipped slightly since the Wolves traded for Dario Saric, but he is still a late-round guy that should be owned in most formats.
