• Mario Chalmers and Andrew Harrison will be available for Monday’s tilt with the Sixers.

    Both guards sat out on Saturday but will be back out there tonight. The Grizzlies injury report is a mile long so the reinforcements are a welcome sight, and Harrison is on the deep league radar as someone who can rack up defensive stats. Memphis isn’t a team that you want to be mining for fantasy value outside of the big names, but the sheer number of injuries will push players into big workloads if you need to scrounge.

  • JaMychal Green
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    JaMychal Green scored 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting and added 12 rebounds, one assist and a block to his line on Monday.

    Green played 24 minutes off the bench and had his usual rebounding numbers, but went 0-for-5 from deep. In contrast, Patrick Patterson logged 15 minutes and went 4-for-8 from deep. Both players are too hard to own, especially with Paul George (shoulder) likely to return this week

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby scored zero points with an assist before exiting Monday's game early with an eye injury.

    He was inadvertently poked in the eye by Kawhi Leonard and had to leave due to some bleeding. It's unclear how much time he'll miss, but we saw Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (29 minutes, nine points, nine rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block) pick up the bulk of the minutes. He's worth a short-term stream and Anunoby will see an eye doctor on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury.

  • Chris Boucher
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Chris Boucher had another solid outing on Monday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting while adding six rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Boucher played well in his 22 minutes off the bench, but he still made some crucial mistakes which led the Marc Gasol closing out the game over him. He's worth an add while Serge Ibaka (sprained ankle) is sidelined, but he's just a short-term option.

  • Pascal Siakam
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam was held in check in Monday's 88-98 loss to the Clippers with 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting while adding 10 rebounds, six assists, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Siakam was on a roll prior to this game and logged 44 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back. He missed some layups that are usually automatic for him, but the fatigue was obviously a factor as he didn't have the same lift as yesterday. He still contributed across the board and should be much better against the Blazers on Wednesday.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet logged a whopping 45 minutes on Monday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-20 shooting to go with two rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a 3-pointer.

    VanVleet only sat down for three minutes on a second night of a back-to-back and is being relied on heavily as the Raptors' secondary scorer. He should continue to see a ton of usage and isn't really a sell-high candidate as he was producing top-90 value before Kyle Lowry (fractured thumb) went down.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol showed some signs of life on Monday, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting while adding five rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and two triples.

    Gasol has been atrocious to own this season with averages of 26.8 minutes, 6.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.2 steals and 0.3 blocks on .345 shooting. He came in late in the fourth quarter and made some huge plays to keep the Raptors in it and with the Raptors hobbled, it gives Gasol some more room to get into a rhythm.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell logged 37 minutes against the Clippers on Monday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assist, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Powell logged a ton of minutes and should continue to do so with Kyle Lowry (fractured thumb) sidelined. Late in the fourth quarter, Powell slipped on a wet spot on the court, but it looks like he avoided an injury as he closed out the game. He's a standard-league pickup in all formats until then.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green scored four points with seven rebounds and four assists before getting ejected in Monday's game against the Jazz.

    After missing five games with a sprained index finger, this wasn't exactly the return owners were anticipating. Green went 2-for-7 from the floor and missed all four his 3-point attempts before getting ejected. He argued with a ref for a foul call and christened Chase Center's first ejection with his name. The season-long outlook for Green is a lot more muddy now that the Warriors should be shifting into tank mode later in the year.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell was explosive on offense again in Monday's 108-122 loss to the Jazz, pouring in 33 points on 13-of-25 shooting while adding two rebounds, eight assists, a steal and five 3-pointers.

    Russell has the ultimate green light to fire away and he was converting on some beautiful plays tonight. The only thing preventing him from reaching early-round value would be an injury as the Warriors need Russell to score 30 on a nightly basis for a chance to win any games this year.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Golden State Warriors

    Willie Cauley-Stein scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting to go with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block on Monday.

    Cauley-Stein is by no means a great NBA player, but the Warriors are going to have to play either him, or Marquese Chriss (17 minutes, 11 points, six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer) so either way it's a loss. It'll be too hard to trust WCS to produce nightly and we're not going to bat an eye towards Chriss unless something major breaks.
