• Julius Randle
    F, New Orleans Pelicans

    Julius Randle had a rough night on Wednesday, picking up four fouls while finishing with three points, three rebounds and five turnovers in 14 minutes.

    Randle went 1-for-4 from both the field and the line. It's a major disappointment but there's no reason to overreact to his first truly bad game of the year.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose double-doubled on Saturday with 20 points (10-of-21 from the field) and 12 assists in a 115-107 win over the Rockets.

    Rose is producing late-round value with points and assists as his biggest contributions with averages of 16.4 points and 6.0 assists per game.

  • Christian Wood
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Christian Wood double-doubled with 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting and 12 rebounds in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Blake Griffin left this game with knee soreness and did not return. Wood is a per-minute monster and could be a standard-league player in only 25 minutes per game. He is worth a look in standard-leagues if Griffin misses extended time.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Rick Carlisle said that the X-rays were negative on Luka Doncic's ankle, but he doesn't expect Doncic to play on Monday.

    Stay tuned for an update on Doncic's status as it gets closer to Monday. Lets just hope its not serious and the sophomore sensation can return quickly. Jalen Brunson started the second half for Doncic and scored 18 points with eight assists in 34 minutes. Brunson will be worth streaming on Monday if Doncic is sidelined and Kristaps Porzingis (22 points and 14 rebounds on Saturday) should see a big boost in usage if Doncic is out.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo dominated the Cavs on Saturday with 29 points on 12-of-20 shooting in just 24 minutes.

    Giannis was questionable with right quad soreness but suited up and barely broke a sweat on his way to 29 points. The free throw percentage is a big weakness for Giannis, but everything else is gravy for the MVP.

  • Khris Middleton
    SF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Khris Middleton chipped in 24 points with six assists on Saturday, shooting 8-of-12 from the field and 3-of-4 from deep.

    Middleton is hot lately, shooting .500 from the field or greater in eight of his last nine games. He is inside the top-50 and his percentages have a lot to do with it as he is now shooting .500 from the field on the season and .895 from the line.

  • Tim Hardaway Jr.
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Tim Hardaway Jr. was able to score 28 points, along with five rebounds, three assists, six 3-pointers and an 11-for-22 shooting line in Saturday's 118-122 OT loss to the Heat.

    Hardaway was hot a couple weeks ago, went into a mini-slump, popped off for 29 points against the Kings two games ago, followed that up with a two-point dud and now drops this one on us. He's as streaky as ever but should probably be added where available in the wake of Luka Doncic's injury. The Mavs need someone to bring the perimeter scoring, and it doesn't look like THJ will have any threats to his shots. He's a top-175/150 player on the year and should improve upon that while Doncic is out.

  • George Hill
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with five rebounds in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Hill should see a boost in value with Eric Bledsoe (shin) expected to be out the next two weeks. Donte DiVincenzo (15 points in 25 minutes) got the start and is the preferred option while Beldsoe is out, but Hill can produce late-round value in the short term and is worth a look in standard leagues.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis finished Saturday's loss with 22 points, 14 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes of action.

    Porzingis went just 7-of-21 from the field, but we're about to see what he looks like as the go-to guy in Dallas with Luka Doncic expected to miss some time. KP has been a top-75 option this season as the team's second fiddle but could be in for some old fashioned lines in the coming days.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVincenzo filled up the box score on Saturday with 15 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 25 minutes.

    DiVincenzo started for Eric Bledsoe (shin) and contributed across the board. Bledsoe is expected to miss two weeks and DiVincenzo is the biggest beneficiary. He is an add in standard-leagues until Bledsoe returns.

  • Maxi Kleber
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Maxi Kleber was able to score 17 points on 7-of-9 shooting in Saturday's home loss.

    Kleber added two threes and a block in 30 minutes, and he did outplay Dwight Powell (27 minutes). The versatile big man is posting top-190/165 value on the year and might see more run as Luka Doncic's upcoming absence will have a ripple effect on the frontcourt rotation. Kleber's worth a shot if you need boards, blocks and threes.
