• Jeremy Lin
    G, Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin bounced back and had 19 points (two 3s), 10 dimes and three steals in Friday’s loss to the visiting Celtics.

    Lin played 30 minutes in this one and has been a top-85 play over the last two weeks as rookie Trae Young struggles mightily. Lin is worth a look while he’s healthy and getting run. As for Young, he’s fallen outside the top-200 and aside from his gaudy assists, he should be kept on your bench until he can get back on track. After a few good games, owners should consider trying to trade him, though that might be a task.

Fantasy News

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    According to Jim Boylen, Daniel Gafford will play "first half minutes" against the Bucks on Monday.

    Luke Kornet is recovering from nose surgery, so Gafford will be given some more time after his recall from the G League. However, he is not a recommended play unless his role increases dramatically.

  • Russell Westbrook
    PG, Houston Rockets

    After missing Saturday's game for rest purposes, Russell Westbrook will start on Monday.

    Westbrook is filling the stat sheet this season with 21.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game. Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore should see their fantasy values drop.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela is back in the lineup on Monday after having concussion issues.

    Capela was injured on Wednesday but is ready to return. Isaiah Hartenstein should go back to a diminished role, while Capela is a double-double waiting to happen on a nightly basis.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House is in the starting lineup on Monday after missing time with a back bruise.

    House was injured on November 10 but is finally good to go. He's averaging 11.8 points and 4.9 rebounds. House is also valuable because he can knock down threes. Austin Rivers should lose some playing time as a result.

  • Tyson Chandler
    C, Houston Rockets

    Tyson Chandler will not play on Monday for rest purposes.

    Chandler played on Friday and Saturday, so he will miss the team's third game in four nights. Clint Capela was already slated to get back in the starting lineup.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Brandon Ingram is listed as questionable to face the Blazers on Tuesday due to right knee soreness.

    Nicolo Melli and Jaxson Hayes have both performed well with all the frontcourt injuries. Even if Ingram returns, they should still play a fair amount because Derrick Favors and Jahlil Okafor are still injured.

  • Frank Jackson
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson has a left neck contusion and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Jackson was injured on Saturday and was unable to suit up on Sunday. E'Twaun Moore played 40 minutes on Saturday and should be in line for plenty of playing time if Jackson remains out.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball is questionable to play on Tuesday due to a right adductor strain.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has thrived in Ball's absence and is an excellent play if he continues to miss time. However, Ball seems to be getting closer to a return.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors will miss Tuesday's game due to left lower back spasms.

    With Jahlil Okafor also listed as doubtful, Nicolo Melli and Jaxson Hayes should see plenty of time on the court. Both scored double digit points on Sunday.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor is doubtful to play on Tuesday due to a left ankle sprain.

    Okafor has not played since November 11. Nicolo Melli and Jaxson Hayes will continue to get more opportunities in his likely absence.
