March 1, 2019, 12:03 pmDwayne BaconG/F, Charlotte Hornets
The Hornets have recalled Dwayne Bacon from their G-League affiliate ahead of Friday's game versus the Nets.
The second-year forward has appeared in 25 games this season for the Hornets and has shown to be a viable wing-defender. Unfortunately, Bacon is still third at best in the pecking order at small forward and has little to no fantasy relevance.

Bogdan Bogdanovic finished Friday's loss to the Knicks with 14 points (5-for-10 shooting), four threes, one rebound and one assist.
Bogdanovic shot the ball well on Friday, but didn't contribute much else. With De'Aaron Fox eyeing a return sometime next week, Bogdanovic may be best to consider as a threes and points streamer.
December 14, 2019, 12:16 amRoyce O'NealeSF, Utah Jazz
Royce O'Neale had himself a good game on Friday, producing 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, two 3s and one steal.
O'Neale has managed to hover just outside the top-150 in 9-cat so far this season, but his low-volume production keeps him off most 14-team league rosters.
December 14, 2019, 12:12 amRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert bullied the Warriors for 15 points (6-of-9 shooting), 15 rebounds, two assists and two blocks on Friday.
Gobert is as steady as they come and is money to finish in the top-25 thanks to his strengths in rebounding and shot blocking.
December 14, 2019, 12:09 amBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
Bojan Bogdanovic caught fire in Friday's 114-106 win over the Warriors, knocking down 8-of-13 treys en route to his game-high 32 points on 8-of-18 shooting.
Bogdanovic added four rebounds, one assist and 8-of-10 shooting from the line to complete his performance. He's a proven 3-point shooter and high-volume scorer and is often miscategorized as a 3-point shooting specialist. He's a lock to finish with mid-round value this season as the Jazz's second scoring option.
December 13, 2019, 11:59 pmMarquese ChrissPF, Golden State Warriors
Marquese Chriss was active on both ends of the floor in Friday's loss to the Jazz, recording 12 points (4-of-7 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs), 13 rebounds (ties career-high), five assists, one steal and two blocks in 23 minutes.
This is the second straight double-double coming from Chriss and he's making a strong case for more rotational minutes. So far, it's his erratic free throw shooting and lack of consistency holding him back. He's worth a speculative add in 14-team leagues or deeper.
December 13, 2019, 11:52 pmKevon LooneyPF-C, Golden State Warriors
Kevon Looney started for Eric Paschall (sore left hip) on Friday but did little with his 18 minutes on the floor as he was limited to to points, four rebounds and one steal.
Looney has been mostly a non-factor in fantasy since making his season debut. He's worth stashing for his upside, but will require a little more than a pinch of patience as he gets into game-shape.
December 13, 2019, 11:41 pmJacob EvansSG, Golden State Warriors
Jacob Evans flashed some of his old form on Friday, posting 13 points on 4-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, one trey, one steal and two blocks.
Evans has been fantasy-relevant in past seasons and could be on the rise as a deep-league target moving forward.
December 13, 2019, 11:38 pmLeBron JamesSF, Los Angeles Lakers
LeBron James picked the Heat apart on Friday to the tun eof 28 points (11-for-22 shooting), 12 assists, nine rebounds, four triples and a steal as the Lakers prevailed in Miami 113-110.
James momentarily left the game in this one, but based on his final stat line I think it's safe to say he's all good. The assist production has been especially impressive so far this year for James, who continues to set up Anthony Davis and the Lakers three-point shooters.
December 13, 2019, 11:36 pmDamion LeeSG, Golden State Warriors
Damion Lee led the Warriors bench on Friday with 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting with three rebounds and three treys.
Lee's performance, while impressive, is still one-dimensional at best. He's been quiet prior to this outburst and will need a repeat performance before we recommend an add.
December 13, 2019, 11:35 pmAnthony DavisPF-C, Los Angeles Lakers
Anthony Davis dominated once again on Friday night as he totaled a team-high 33 points (11-for-20 shooting), 10 rebounds, four triples, three blocks and an assist as the Lakers won on the road again.
Davis continues to be a fantasy force and the shoulder issue that has been popping up on injury reports is not slowing him down. Expect another big line the next time he takes the floor against the Hawks on Sunday.
