• Karl-Anthony Towns double-doubled again vs. the Hawks on Monday with 15 points and 13 rebounds to go with two steals, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Towns is a walking double-double and he shot the ball well tonight, hitting 6-of-8 of his field goal attempts. There’s not much changing in Minnesota as Coach Thibs will play his starters heavy minutes. Although the offense revolves around Jimmy Butler, Towns makes the most of his shots due to his high efficiency and he racks up the rebounds in bunches.

Fantasy News

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (left thumb sprain) is probable for Tuesday's game.

    Carter had a strong performance on Saturday, so there's not much need for worry here as he should be closer to full strength.

  • Landry Shamet
    SG, Los Angeles Clippers

    Landry Shamet left Monday's game with an ankle injury.

    Shamet couldn't put any weight on his leg and has been ruled out. It's tough to tell if it's a contact injury and we're hoping it isn't serious. He can be safely ignored in fantasy leagues.

  • 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.
