February 23, 2019, 4:55 pmDerrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White (right heel soreness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Knicks.
White had a middling return to action on Friday, but once he's a must-own when he gets his legs back under him. Patty Mills logged 28 minutes in Friday's game, but could see that decrease as White starts to ramp up his action.

March 18, 2019, 10:20 pmDerrick Jones Jr. - F/G - Miami Heat
Derrick Jones Jr. scored eight points on 4-of-11 shooting while adding a rebound and two steals on Monday.
Jones Jr. started again in place of Justise Winslow (right thigh), but he couldn't produce in his x minutes of action. We love the highlight plays from Airplane Mode, but he's not a reliable fantasy asset, especially with the Heat loaded on the wings.
March 18, 2019, 10:17 pmTorrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets
Torrey Craig (left shoulder sprain) returned from a two-game absence and scored 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting with eight boards in 21 minutes on Monday.
Craig seems to be ready for his normal workload, but he's just a deep-league option on such a deep and now healthy Nuggets team.
March 18, 2019, 10:07 pmNikola Jokic - C - Denver Nuggets
Nikola Jokic filled up the box score in Monday's 114-105 win over the Celtics posting 21 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
Jokic also shot 9-for-14 as the only category in which he didn't dominate was free throw percentage (0-for-0). Jokic continues to provide first-round value, and it doesn't get much safer than the Joker these days.
March 18, 2019, 9:59 pmWill Barton - G - Denver Nuggets
Will Barton netted 20 points on 9-of-17 shooting from the floor on Monday vs. the Celtics.
The 17 shots were a team high. So while he didn't provide much else (two treys, four boards and two dimes), it's great to see the higher usage. He's consistently inconsistent, but he makes for a great upside play as someone that can go off in just about any category. Gary Harris had a better game than what we've grown accustomed to with 16 points and four threes, though he once again had just one steal. He hasn't had a multi-steal game all month, and that's where much of his value came from in the past.
March 18, 2019, 9:57 pmKyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors
Kyle Lowry scored 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, eight assists and five 3-pointers in Monday's 128-92 win before leaving with an ankle injury.
Rough news for Lowry owners, as he left the game after 26 minutes with ankle soreness. The game was well out of hand already so we're hoping it's just precautionary, but if he misses time then Fred VanVleet becomes an elite streaming option.
March 18, 2019, 9:56 pmFred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors
Fred VanVleet double-doubled against the Knicks on Monday with 13 points and 12 dimes to go with two rebounds, a steal, a block and two triples.
He went 5-for-9 from the field and hit his only free throw attempt. VanVleet is a lock for production when any Raptors' starter sits and now that he's healthy, he's worth a look for owners in need of some point guard stats with three more games this week. Kyle Lowry left the game with an ankle injury which means there's a chance that VanVleet could start again on Wednesday.
March 18, 2019, 9:55 pmMarc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors
Marc Gasol double-doubled on Monday with 12 points and 11 boards while chipping in an assist, a steal, a block and two triples.
Gasol drew his fourth consecutive start with Serge Ibaka (suspension) sitting out what will be his last game of his three-game suspension. It's no coincidence that Gasol has had his best three-game stretch with the Raptors during Ibaka's suspension and the hope is that he can carry the momentum going forward even with Ibaka returning to the lineup on Wednesday against OKC.
March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmPascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam scored 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting while adding eight rebounds, five assists, a block and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Siakam's overall game is a bit underrated because of how great he is in transition. Kawhi Leonard (load management) has missed a quarter of the season and Siakam always steps up when Leonard rests. He's averaging 4.0 assists over the past month and is a guy who could eventually average a triple-one. There's a lot to be excited about in Toronto.
March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmMitchell Robinson - C - New York Knicks
Mitchell Robinson scored zero points with five rebounds and three blocks on Monday.
With his three blocks tonight, Robinson has now tied Patrick Ewing for the Knicks' franchise rookie record for consecutive games with a block. He's swatted a shot in 28 consecutive games and even though he fouled out and his minutes have been low, you have to hang onto him because of his insane per-minute production. On the year he's averaging 2.4 blocks in only 18.9 minutes.

March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmAllonzo Trier - G - New York Knicks
Allonzo Trier scored 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer on Monday.
He scored more tonight than his previous three games combined which should calm down any overreaction to tonight's line. Trier is a solid isolation player and coach Fizdale has shown a liking to his game which means he's on the radar for owners in need of points and treys, but all of the Knicks wings are risky plays due to coach Fizdale's maddening rotations.
