• Josh Hart scored nine points on three 3-pointers with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in the Lakers’ loss to the Thunder.

    Hart played more than 25 minutes for the second straight game and his spot in the lineup tends to be firmer when Lonzo Ball is sitting. Either way though, Hart’s shooting and steals make him an asset in deep leagues. When Ball is healthy, Hart’s upside is limited but as long as he’s out, Hart makes for a good streaming option.

  • Alec Burks
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Alec Burks had a game-high and season-high 29 points (9-for-15 FGs, 9-for-9 FTs) and eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two triples in 36 minutes as he led the Warriors to a 114-95 win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

    Burks has been inconsistent, but he's safe to start for at least two weeks while D'Angelo Russell (right thumb sprain) is out. Another safe, though lower-end Warrior, Glenn Robinson III had 20 points and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes tonight.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    It was a much more typical Draymond Green game than he's had lately in a win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday as he produced 8 points (4-for-12 FGs), 10 rebounds, 11 assists and two blocks in 35 minutes.

    For such an established player, Green has a wide range of outcomes this season. The Warriors have shown that they'll sit players for minor injuries, so there's the risk that he doesn't play for much of the season. However, while he is playing, he's capable of near-triple-double numbers. You can try to sell high if he has a few games like this if you need someone safer.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday put up 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting, 10 assists, five rebounds and a 3-pointer in 35 minutes to lead the Pelicans over the Blazers 115-104 on Tuesday in New Orleans.

    Holiday seems to have found his stride lately. He's creeping up in the rankings and could still return that second-round value that many drafters had hoped for. Along side him tonight, JJ Redick sank four treys as part of an 18-point, five-board, two-dime game in 32 minutes.

  • Kenrich Williams
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Kenrich Williams produced plenty of stats again with eight points (2-of-4 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), 14 rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes in a win over the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Rebounds, steals and threes have been Williams' specialties during his six-start stretch. He'll be relegated to bench duty as the Pelicans get healthier, but he can be started in standard leagues if he fits your team until then. Also in the starting lineup with a nice game tonight was Jaxson Hayes putting up nice points, seven boards, two steals and three blocks in 21 minutes.

  • Kyle Kuzma
    PF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma suffered a cut near his right eye on Tuesday and headed to the locker room to address the bleeding.

    Assuming the trainers can control the bleed and get Kuzma cleared that there's nothing else wrong, it's likely he'll be able to return to the game.

  • Frank Jackson
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson (left neck contusion) returned after missing one game to score nine points (2-of-4 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), grab two boards and hit two treys in 19 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Jackson isn't worth rostering in standard leagues, but he is getting regular rotation minutes while the Pelicans are missing quite a few players. He's a deep-league option capable of having a big game here and there. Nickeil Alexander-Walker cooled off in this one with just 3 points, four rebounds, an assist and a three while missing his other five shots in 16 minutes.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Brandon Ingram (right knee soreness) looked good in his return from a four-game absence with 21 points (8-for-20 FGs, 4-for-4 FTs), seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes in a win over the Blazers on Tuesday.

    With the Pelicans still ravaged by injuries, Ingram jumped right back in and filled up the box score. It's a good sign that he was able to play 35 minutes in his first game back. Ingram probably won't stick in the top-25 all season, but he may be able to stay close while the Pelicans are missing up to five rotation players.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum had a well-rounded game without Damian Lillard in a loss on Tuesday night, providing 22 points (9-of-22 FGs), four rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

    That's a great game from McCollum, though the usage was pretty much the same as when he plays with Lillard. McCollum usually gets a bigger boost when he's running the show, so keep an eye on Lillard's status for Thursday's game as it could be another chance for C.J. to go off.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside sank all four of his free throws and double-doubled with 14 points (5-of-7 FGs), 14 rebounds and a block in 29 minutes on Tuesday night as the Blazers lost to the Pelicans.

    That's at least 10 made free throws in a row for Whiteside, who is up to 78.8 percent from the line for the season. That's playing a big part in his ability to put up fourth-round value through 14 games. While he's not providing first-round value as he once did, Whiteside has made a huge leap this season.

  • Nassir Little
    SF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Nassir Little moved back to the bench as Carmelo Anthony started at the four on Tuesday, but he put up his first double-double with 12 points (5-of-6 FGs), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

    The state of the Blazers' frontcourt should help get Little at least 20 minutes per game, but the fact that Anthony is now on the team will cap his upside. Little is still very raw, but tonight's game shows that he can be a worth-while dart-throw, especially if (when) Melo misses games.
