• Greg Monroe
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Greg Monroe and Jonah Bolden were ejected in the final minutes of Game 5 during a late-game scuffle on Tuesday.

    Bolden and Monroe were involved in a few frustration shoves with Rodions Kurucs and Dzanan Musa, who were also ejected on Tuesday. The league will look at the incident and see if fines or suspensions are merited.

  • Deandre Ayton
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Deandre Ayton (left ankle soreness) will play on Saturday without minutes restrictions, as will the rest of the Suns aside from Frank Kaminsky.

    For those keeping track, that's good for Aron Baynes, Elie Okobo and Dario Saric. Everyone played on Friday but there was some concern over whether everyone would be ready for the back-to-back situation. Fire up your Suns as usual.

  • Seth Curry
    SG, Dallas Mavericks

    Seth Curry (right knee soreness) is in the starting five on Saturday night.

    Curry was initially questionable but could be looking at a big night with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis both out. Feel free to fire him up, with Delon Wright and Jalen Brunson also in the mix.

  • Ivica Zubac
    C, Los Angeles Clippers

    Ivica Zubac came away with eight points and 15 rebounds on Saturday.

    Zubac needed only 20 minutes to do that damage, adding a block for good measure. He took advantage of a matchup against the undersized Harry Giles but will settle down in the near future. Zubes is a traditional big with a late-round ceiling, though he's viable when he's playing well like this.

  • Kawhi Leonard
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Kawhi Leonard posted 31 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in Saturday's 103-112 loss to the Kings.

    The Clippers' funk continues, but fantasy GMs may be alright with it if it forces Kawhi to keep playing at his exceedingly high level. The other reliable Clippers did their thing today in the losing effort, with Montrezl Harrell posting 16 points and 10 boards and Lou Williams clocking in with 24 points and two threes, though he did also commit eight turnovers.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Marcus Morris put up six points on 3-of-9 shooting in Saturday's home loss.

    Morris started and played 32 minutes, so there really isn't any excuse for this performance. He might be worth hanging onto as a low-end option for as long as Paul George is out but it's hard to envision him maintaining the volume he needs for middle-round value when the Clippers get to full health.

  • Reggie Jackson
    PG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Reggie Jackson started in his Clippers debut on Saturday but wasn't anything special, producing eight points, four assists and two 3-pointers on 3-of-9 shooting in 23 minutes.

    Jackson may hold low-end value while Patrick Beverley is out but will just be a depth option when the Clippers are fully healthy. Even now, he's not a recommended option if you're trying to preserve FG% and is really just a specialist for threes and assists.

  • Kent Bazemore
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Kent Bazemore finished Saturday's road win with 23 points, six rebounds, two 3-pointers, four steals and a block in 30 minutes off the bench.

    Bazemore's minutes are trending up as Luke Walton continues his game of chicken with Buddy Hield, and he's been a top-150 option in high-twenties minutes in the past. He's got six threes and six steals over his last three contests so give Bazemore a look for 3-and-D numbers.

  • Harry Giles III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Harry Giles delivered 14 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and a block in 32 minutes on Saturday afternoon.

    Giles has a great opportunity in front of him and put his foot down with Alex Len returning to potentially threaten his minutes. Injuries have always been the problem with Giles, but as long as he can stay healthy he'll be a deep-league option with some upside as the Kings continue to roll shorthanded up front. If he can keep getting 30 mpg it'll be a fun finish to the year, but Giles is averaging just 12.9 mpg on the full season so that's far from a guarantee.

  • Buddy Hield
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Buddy Hield only saw 15 minutes of action on Saturday against the Clippers, scoring seven points with a 3-pointer and a steal.

    Issues between Hield and the Kings have been festering for a while now, and it seems like there's been a total breakdown of trust between player and organization. Kent Bazemore had a big game which might help explain this, but Hield is definitely trending downward. If his minutes continue to stay in this range then all bets will be off, but Hield should still be able to deliver middle-round value as long as he has a reasonable workload.

  • Alex Len
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Alex Len made his Kings debut on Sunday, playing 16 minutes and posting three points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block.

    Len returned from an 11-game absence from a right hip flexor injury and could be in line for additional minutes while Richaun Holmes is out, though Harry Giles put up a great game to try and hold off the competition today. Len's someone to keep an eye on in 16-team leagues but is hard to endorse in anything shallower for now.
