• Jimmy Butler - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Jimmy Butler (lower back tightness) missed practice on Monday.

    The 76ers just can't seem to stay healthy and with Joel Embiid on his way back, Jimmy Butler might be on his way to the sidelines. Hopefully it's nothing too serious and the 76ers' next game is on Tuesday against the Magic so just consider him questionable as of right now.

  • Joe Harris - G/F - Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris hit 8-of-15 shots on Friday night, helping the Nets squeeze past the Lakers with 26 points, six 3-pointers, three rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes.

    Harris was a steal of a signing for the Nets last summer and he showcased his elite, high-efficiency deep shooting tonight. He's been a steady fantasy option from the jump.

  • Caris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert moved to the bench on Friday night and went scoreless in 18 minutes, producing three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block while missing all six of his shots.

    LeVert's season began with a bang but it's likely going to end with a whimper, though it's hard to blame him considering it's impressive that he's even in the lineup at all. He's a luxury hold right now, and if your team is far enough ahead that you can afford a luxury hold at this point in the year, congrats to you.

  • DeMarre Carroll - F - Brooklyn Nets

    DeMarre Carroll put up 15 points, six rebounds and three triples in a start against the Lakers on Friday.

    Carroll replaced Caris LeVert in the starting lineup and the move could stick with how ineffective LeVert has been of late. Carroll has a shot at late-round value if he keeps holding down this spot in big minutes (35 tonight), so keep him in mind if you need rebounds, threes and steals. Think Diet P.J. Tucker.

  • Lance Stephenson - G - Los Angeles Lakers

    Lance Stephenson (left toe sprain) was available but did not play in Friday's game with the Nets.

    Stepheson's absence from the rotation leaves things a bit cleaner for any fantasy owners who want to pick at the Lakers' carcass.

  • Cody Demps - G - Sacramento Kings

    The Kings have signed guard Cody Demps to a 10-day contract.

    Demps went to college at Sacramento State and has been playing with the Kings' G-League affiliate in Stockton this year. He's averaging 11.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.1 steals in 30.6 mpg.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle sprain) returned from two games on the shelf and looked fresh with 27 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer in a 116-87 win over the Heat.

    The Greek Freak shot 12-of-19 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line. He might get some more precautionary nights off if anything pops up, especially with Milwaukee coasting its way to the top seed, but it was great to see him back tonight.

  • Khris Middleton - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton cooked up 18 points, eight rebounds, 10 assists, a steal and two triples on 8-of-13 from the field in Friday's win.

    It's nice to see Middleton come through with a big-time line like this with Giannis Antetokounmpo in the lineup. Expect the usual middle-round numbers with early-round flashes.

  • Ersan Ilyasova - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Ersan Ilyasova tallied 13 points (4-of-6 shooting), five rebounds, an assist, a steal and three 3-pointers in Friday's easy home win.

    Ilyasova also saw 27 minutes and looks like the main beneficiary of Nikola Mirotic's absence. He might get into the top-150 if he keeps up the solid shooting, and his stat set offers some 12-team appeal if you need rebounds and out-of-position threes. Ilyasova isn't a must-add by any means, though.

  • Pat Connaughton - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Pat Connaughton played 28 minutes in Friday's win over the Heat, posting six points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two threes.

    Connaughton logged more than starter Tony Snell, who had 22 minutes (10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, two threes), though the garbage time asterisk applies. George Hill is still working his way back from a groin injury and played 18 quiet minutes. This is your committee to replace Malcolm Brogdon, so good luck to any fantasy owners wading into this mess.

  • Eric Bledsoe - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe didn't do much in Friday's easy win, scoring nine points on 3-of-10 shooting to go with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    It's an ill-timed dud for fantasy purposes, but the Bucks simply didn't need to go full tilt to rip the Heat to shreds. Hopefully your fantasy team makes it to next week to reap the rewards of more typical Bledsoe numbers.
