• Kawhi Leonard
    F, Toronto Raptors

    Kawhi Leonard put up 27 points, nine rebounds and a 3-pointer in Sunday's 95-89 win over the Bulls.

    This is a mild disappointment from Kawhi, who usually stuffs the stat sheet with plenty of goodies. Expect him to get back to that in the new year, and if you're looking for a silver lining he went 10-of-11 from the charity stripe.

  • Shaquille Harrison
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Shaquille Harrison drew the start for an injured Otto Porter (righ foot bone bruise) and thrived with 15 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals, one trey and one block in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

    Porter is out for at least a couple more weeks. Harrison has outplayed Chandler Hutchison with this spot start, making him a speculative add in case Harrison sticks with starting five.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum balled out on Wednesday, dropping a season-high 30 points on 12-of-24 shooting, and adding, six rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and five 3-pointers.

    This was one of Tatum's best lines of the season. He has strung together a couple of solid outings with Gordon Hayward out. Tatum is currently a top-40 player and should settle somewhere around there as the season progresses.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker had a rough night on Wednesday, scoring 13 points on 4-of-17 shooting, with only two assists and six turnovers, but somehow managed nine rebounds.

    Kemba's night was salvaged with his nine rebounds, but other than that it was one he'd like to forget. It was his season-high in turnovers and tied his season-low in assists. He is still a top-20 guy and he'll move past this. It just wasn't a great game, simple as that.

  • Gary Harris
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    It was a subdued Wednesday night for Gary Harris who tallied 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with two rebounds, three assists two 3s and one steal in 35 minutes.

    Harris was not much of a factor with this quiet line. He's been a top-150 play so far this season a far cry from his fantasy ceiling a few seasons ago. The swingman to own in the Nuggets right now has been Will Barton (15 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two 3s and one steal), who has been a reliable top-75 asset early in the season.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart put up 15 points while going 1-of-11 from three, but managed to lead the Celtics in assists with eight, and added three boards and two steals on Wednesday.

    The effort was solid all around, had Smart not gone 1-for-11 from deep. Smart has been a top-50 player with Gordon Hayward, and because he can contribute in multiple categories, he is a pretty safe bet to stay inside the top-75 with Hayward out.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray was sharp on the defensive end on Wednesday, swiping a career-high six steals to go with 10 points (4-of-16 shooting), one rebound, nine assists and one 3-pointer.

    Yes, the poor shooting from the field is a buzzkill, but steals are so hard to come by week-to-week, that the six steals provide a more-than-ample consolation. Murray is showing up with top-50 value so far this season and appears to have matured enough for us to expect him to sustain it.

  • Brad Wanamaker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Brad Wanamaker logged 27 minutes on Wednesday night's overtime contest against the Clippers, finishing with 14 points, three boards, five assists and a steal.

    Tonight's numbers were inflated since the game went into overtime, but Wanamaker is making use of the minutes that he sees. Should there be an injury in Boston's backcourt, Wanamaker is someone that should be added.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic came up big for the Nuggets in Wednesday's 105-95 over the Rockets, making 12-of-19 shots from the field for 27 points, 12 boards, two 3s and four assists.

    Jokic was sitting just inside the top-40 prior to tonight's gem but it appears he's found a way to infuse some juice to his anemic start to the season. He's still a fantastic point-center and has the tools to easily climb up the rankings. Float a buy-low offer and bank on his talent winning over his post-FIBA WC fatigue.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis collected a season-high 14 rebounds to go with eight points, six assists and three steals on Wednesday.

    Theis played for 31 minutes while Enes Kanter and Robert Williams only saw 12 minutes and nine minutes respectively. Theis played well and actually had the second highest assist count on the team tonight. He is the one to own in this frontcourt and has been a top-100 player over the last two weeks.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Houston Rockets

    Clint Capela grabbed a season-high 21 rebounds on Wednesday to go along with 12 points and a steal for his seventh straight double-double.

    Capela has now snatched 20-plus rebounds for the fifth consecutive game. He is on a tear and any fear of Russell Westbrook limiting his rebounds should be assuaged. Over the last two weeks, Capela has been a top-10 player and sits inside the top-25 on the season. If this keeps up, there's no reason he can't stay there.
