Dillon Brooks scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with a 3-pointer on Monday.
Brooks has scored in double digits in three consecutive games, but left this game with an apparent knee injury in the fourth quarter and did not return. When he was healthy he was still only averaging 10.8 points and 1.0 3s over his past five. If he’s hurt it doesn’t move the needle much for fantasy purposes as there’s plenty of opportunity in Memphis, but no one is really taking advantage of it. Meanwhile Wayne Selden dropped 17 points with three triples and six assists, but we’ve seen this story before. He’ll likely disappear in the next game and even if he doesn’t we’ll have to see a lot more before he becomes a recommended add.
