• Enes Kanter
    C, New York Knicks

    Enes Kanter was limited due to garbage time on Wednesday, but scored 17 points with six rebounds in his 26 minutes of action in a blowout loss to the Sixers.

    He played pretty well in this one, but the team as a whole looked awful and got destroyed by the Sixers. His competition for center minutes, Mitchell Robinson, had five points, five rebounds and four blocks in 17 minutes. Head coach David Fizdale will be playing around with lineups all season, but Kanter is the preferred option regardless of who starts.

  • Derrick Jones Jr.
    SF, Miami Heat

    Derrick Jones Jr. (hip) was not present at practice on Monday but coach Erik Spoelstra said he is "getting much closer" to a return.

    Jones has only played in four games this season in a limited role and just simply can not stay healthy. His potential as a defensive specialist has been on display in the past but with Miami's crowded front court rotation and his inability to stay healthy, it is uncertain whether or not he can actually reach this ceiling any time soon. He can be left on the wire in all shallow formats.

  • Ryan Anderson
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Ryan Anderson has been waived by the Houston Rockets.

    He played a total of 14 minutes in his second stint with Houston, and has not been relevant in fantasy hoops for a few seasons now.

  • Domantas Sabonis
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Domantis Sabonis (hip) will play in Monday's road game against the Brooklyn Nets.

    Sabonis did not close out Saturday's game against the Bucks but the game was well out of hand and it looks like the injury will not keep him out of Monday night's game against the Nets. He will start at PF with Myles Turner back from injury and look to keep up his stellar points and rebounds double-double rate which has kept him at a top-40 ranking in standard league formats this season.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (illness) missed practice Monday because he is still sick.

    Dragic is still under the weather but will have a couple of days to feel better with Miami's next game coming on Wednesday at home versus the Cavs. With only three games this week all falling on busy days with at least ten games, he may be difficult to play in weekly formats but should still be held onto in standard daily leagues as he is providing top-100 value in his new bench role this season. Justice Winslow (concussion) and Derrick Jones Jr. (hip) did not participate in practice as well.

  • Aaron Holiday
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Aaron Holiday will be starting in Monday's road game against the Brooklyn Nets.

    Malcolm Brogdon and T.J. McConnell are both out so Holiday will slot directly into the starting PG position as he did in his last game on Saturday. He is providing top-100 value in standard formats over the last two weeks with averages of 12-3-4 and 1.3 steals a game so he can be viewed as a popular DFS play and streaming option for tonight's game. Just keep in mind the Pacers only have one more game this week on Saturday, which already has ten games on the schedule and the five days off may also give his teammates the time to heal up and get back on the court.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's road game against the Nets.

    Lamb has been trending in the right direction with a questionable tag as recently as Friday but he will sit out his seventh straight game. The Pacers only have one more game this week, at home versus the Magic on Saturday, so he should have plenty of time to get right but for managers in weekly leagues, he can be safely left on the bench. The Holiday brothers, Aaron and Justin, should continue to get more run in his and Malcolm Brogdon's absence.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma dropped 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    Kuzma is back into the swing of things and should cruise to late-round value. He added five rebounds, three triples and one block to the stat sheet.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James double-doubled in a 122-101 win against the Hawks on Sunday as he put up 33 points and 12 assists.

    James shot 13-of-21 from the field and 6-of-10 from beyond the arc. He also grabbed seven boards and added one steal and one block to the box score. James' co-star Anthony Davis had an off night with 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting with five assists and five blocks. Both guys are locks for top-15 value.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo played well on Sunday as he put up 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting in a blowout win over the Hawks.

    Rondo played 24 minutes, which is a season-high. He knocked down two 3-pointers and added three assists to the stat sheet. Alex Caruso played 21 minutes and had 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Rondo will likely be the preferred option of the two when his minutes restriction is lifted, but neither guy is worth owning in standard formats.

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started for Avery Bradley (leg) and put up 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting in a win over the Hawks on Sunday.

    KCP played just 21 minutes as the majority of this game was out of reach. Danny Green chipped in 11 points with seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks on 4-of-7 shooting. Green provides late-round value and is worth owning in most formats, while KCP is a streaming option while Bradley is out.
