• Jeff Teague helped out roto owners on Monday by scoring 30 points with six assists, three boards and a career-high 16-of-17 shooting from the free throw line.

    Teague had a combined 19 free throws attempted in his last six games so this was unexpected but welcomed as the Wolves were missing Jimmy Butler tonight. Teague has been a bit slow coming back from injury but that was expected when he returned early. He should be a solid top-70 player from here on out and has some upside if his jumper starts to fall.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb (sprained left ankle) and Goga Bitadze (mild concussion) have been officially ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

    Neither player practiced on Monday neither have a clear timeline for a return. The Pacers next chance to get them back will be on Friday.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball is likely to return to action on Saturday against the Heat.

    Brandon Ingram is set to get an MRI on his knee tomorrow and Lonzo Ball should make his return on Saturday. This pushes J.J. Redick to the bench and Ingram's results will have effects on Kenrich Williams,, Derrick Favors and Jahlil Okafor's fantasy value.

  • Harry Giles III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Luke Walton said Harry Giles won't have a minutes restriction on Tuesday.

    Keep in mind that this doesn't mean that Giles will suddenly get 30 minutes as he's never played over 23 minutes in a game in his career. With Marvin Bagley out, there's at least a chance that Giles will get regular minutes soon.

  • Paul George
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Doc Rivers said he doesn't know if Paul George (right rotator cuff and left labrum tear) will play on Wednesday.

    If George does not debut on Wednesday, he'll have another chance on Thursday. He's a must-start once he plays, but his minutes may start low and he could be resting often.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis made 4-of-4 shots from the field on Monday for 11 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

    Theis should eventually see his minutes dip to below the 20-minute mark (22 tonight) as Enes Kanter works himself into mid-season form. Robert Williams was far less thrilling in fantasy tonight with six points, thre rebounds, one block and one assist in 17 minutes.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart posted 17 points (6-of-9 FGs, 4-of-7 3-pointers), one rebound, six assists and one block in Monday's over the Mavs.

    Smart will be seeing extended run as a starter for the Celtics while Gordon Hayward (fractured hand) is on the mend. He's a strong source, of assists, steals and some threes, ticking most of the boxes you want out of your fantasy team's secondary point guard.

  • Troy Daniels
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Troy Daniels (left knee injury) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns after the results of his MRI came back negative.

    Daniels is considered day-to-day, so watch the news tomorrow if you happen to have Daniels in a very deep league.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown scored 25 points on 9-of-16 shooting with 11 rebounds, three assists and two threes in Monday's win over the Mavs.

    Brown is picking up steam, with this gem following a 30-point outing on Saturday. He's someone who should see a nice uptick in the absence of Gordon Hayward (fractured left hand), so lines like this might be commonplace pretty soon.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum was off his game on offense in Monday's 116-106 win over the Mavs, going 1-for-18 from the field to end the night with five points, eight rebounds, four assists and one steal.

    Tatum has been steady prior to this stinker and has earned enough trust for us to give him a pass. It's just variance. Nothing serious. Expect a better version of him taking the court in the next one.

  • Enes Kanter
    C, Boston Celtics

    Enes Kanter (left knee contusion) made his return on Monday and quietly put up two points and three rebounds in six minutes off the bench.

    Kanter is being brought back slowly, which is understandable. He should steadily ramp up his minutes and production as he gets his legs back and should settle into a top-100 big man for his points, rebounds, FG% and low TOs.
