E'Twaun Moore scored 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting with three 3-pointers, a rebound, three assists and a steal on Thursday.
He briefly left the game with a left knee contusion, but quickly returned to action. Moore was hot tonight in only 17 minutes, but if his role is going to be diminished he isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Darius Miller (35 minutes, eight points, four rebounds, five assists, a steal and two triples) was decent but when gauging who to own it's all about the minutes and usage which favor Miller at the moment.
December 15, 2019, 10:05 pmRajon RondoPG, Los Angeles Lakers
We saw the good version of Rajon Rondo on Sunday during the Lakers-Hawks game, as he went for 11 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.
This was a classic Rondo game as he threw contributions together throughout the box score over 26 minutes. In his previous game he shot horribly, and his jumper will ultimately how large of a roll he is able to play on the Lakers. He is still just an assist resource for the time being, but don't be afraid to make the pickup if his playing time was to increase into the 30s on a regular basis. On a deep Lakers roster that won't be simple.
December 15, 2019, 9:59 pmTrae YoungPG, Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young was potent with 30 points (9-of-22 FG, 9-of-11 FT), three 3-pointers, seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and six turnovers, as the Hawks fell to the Lakers on Sunday.
Young is slowly heating back up in the scoring department, and he is bound to have a strong night from deep any game now. Early-round value is still a near guarantee with Young and John Collins should help make his life easier.
December 15, 2019, 9:48 pmDe'Andre HunterSF, Atlanta Hawks
De'Andre Hunter continued to make strides on Sunday against the Lakers, as he put together eight points, six rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.
Hunter's shooting from the field (2-of-10 FG) and four turnovers held him back from having a huge night. The Lakers are one of the toughest defenses to face, and this line was juicy if you look past those negative aspects. If he is available the upside is hard to ignore in standard leagues. Cam Reddish also had an intriguing night with 10 points (3-of-10 FG), one 3-pointer on six attempts, five rebounds, one steal, one block and three turnovers. Similar issues for Reddish here as the youngsters deal with the growing pains of adapting to the NBA. He has not shown enough consistency to match Hunter's appeal, but the potential is real.

Justise Winslow (back) remains out for Monday's matchup with the Grizzlies
Winslow is still getting ruled out a day in advance, and still carries enough shooting woes to make him a borderline player in 12-team leagues when he is healthy. With that in mind and this injury situation it is best to let someone else have a shot at holding Winslow.

Goran Dragic (right groin strain) has been ruled out for Monday's tilt with the Grizzlies.
Make that seven straight missed games for Dragic, and it is not clear when he will finally return to the squad. Unless you have him in an IL spot it is time to move on in most cases. He was worthy of 12-team rosters in standard leagues, but the ceiling was low, and you can find players with higher upsides on the wire.

December 15, 2019, 9:28 pmJabari ParkerPF, Atlanta Hawks
Jabari Parker did not blow away the Lakers on Sunday, but he was solid enough with 12 points, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.
Parker's ability to do a little bit of everything efficiently is making him into a mid to late-round player in standard leagues. It'll be interesting to see how things develop when John Collins comes back into the fold, but Kevin Huerter's left shoulder contusion at the end of this game should only help stabilize Parker's place in the rotation.
December 15, 2019, 9:28 pmWilson ChandlerF, Brooklyn Nets
Wilson Chandler put up two points with seven boards in 19 minutes in his first game back from a 25-game suspension on Sunday.
Chandler shot 1-of-1 from the field and added one steal and one block to the box score. The Nets waived Iman Shumpert to clear room for Chandler's return. If this game is any indicator of the minutes he will receive, he could put up late-round value with his versatile skill set.
December 15, 2019, 9:23 pmSpencer DinwiddiePG, Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie led the charge for the Nets with 24 points and six dimes in a team-high 30 minutes of action on Sunday.
Dinwiddie has been phenomenal since Kyrie Irving went down and has inserted himself in the conversation to be an Eastern Conference All-Star. He shot 9-of-21 from the field and knocked down two triples. There is a great sell-high opportunity for Dinwiddie as you might be able to get a top-50 asset for him.
December 15, 2019, 9:18 pmDeAndre JordanC, Brooklyn Nets
DeAndre Jordan put up 13 points and 11 rebounds in a 109-89 blowout win over the Sixers on Sunday.
Jordan shot 6-of-9 from the field and added two assists and one steal to the box score. Jarrett Allen got outshined by Jordan in this one as he put up just eight points and eight rebounds on 3-of-9 shooting. Allen is a better option, but Jordan still holds late-round rebounding and field goal percentage appeal.
December 15, 2019, 9:17 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Malcolm Brogdon had a solid showing on Sunday as he went for 11 points (4-of-11 FG), seven assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and one turnover versus the Hornets.
Brogdon only received 25 minutes as the Pacers' bench thrived in this game. Brogdon remains the lead guard in Indiana, but the improved bench play could be cutting into his minutes to a small degree. TJ Warren on the other hand only received 26 minutes and struggled to reach six points (2-of-8 FG), four rebounds and two assists. Warren's questionable ability to fill out the box score beyond points is weighing down his fantasy appeal, especially on lousy shooting nights like this one.
