November 16, 2018, 12:47 pmKosta KoufosC, Sacramento Kings
Kosta Koufos will be out again in Friday's game.
This is more of the same for Koufos. He has only played seven games this season and is barely a fantasy asset when he is on the court playing only 10-15 minutes.

December 8, 2019, 9:32 pmBen SimmonsPG, Philadelphia Sixers
Ben Simmons puts up 16 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists in a win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Simmons shot 8-of-11 from the field and turned the ball over five times. Simmons is great for rebounds, assists, steals and field goal percentage, but the threes and free throws will continue to hold him back. Regardless, he is a top-40 option.
December 8, 2019, 9:30 pmRui HachimuraPF, Washington Wizards
On Sunday, Rui Hachimura went 7-of-7 from the line on his way to 17 points, (5-of-14 FG) alongside seven rebounds and four assists.
It was not Hachimura's greatest night, but he continues to put up numbers for the Wizards who have no problem generating plenty of fantasy stats every day of the week. He is certainly worth a pickup if he is still available in your league.
December 8, 2019, 9:27 pmJoel EmbiidC, Philadelphia Sixers
Joel Embiid (left hip contusion) returned on Sunday and put up 10 points with eight rebounds and six assists on 3-of-7 shooting.
Embiid turned the ball over seven times and missed his only attempt from beyond the arc. He has struggled against Marc Gasol, so we could chalk his lackluster performance up to that. He should bounce back next game and look like his dominant early-round self.
December 8, 2019, 9:23 pmMatisse ThybulleSG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers
Matisse Thybulle put up 20 points with three steals in 32 minutes in a 110-104 win over the Raptors on Sunday.
Thybulle led the bench in minutes and showed up on both ends of the floor as he added three steals and one block to the stat sheet. He shot 6-of-9 from the field and knocked down five triples. He is flashing his potential as a tremendous 3-and-D asset, but he is relegated to deep-league defensive specialist until he does this consistently.
December 8, 2019, 9:20 pmDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
Davis Bertans did it again on Sunday vs. the Clippers, going for 25 points (7-of-13 FG, 5-of-6 FT), six 3-pointers and steal.
Bertans is lights out from deep, and has the greenest of lights any shooter can get. With Thomas Bryant absent for the time being he will get plenty of minutes, and he clearly is capable of returning mid-round value with them.
December 8, 2019, 9:19 pmKyle LowryPG, Toronto Raptors
Kyle Lowry scored 26 points with six rebounds and five assists in a loss to the Sixers on Sunday.
Lowry shot 7-of-14 from the field and 4-of-8 from beyond the arc. He played a team-high 38 minutes as well, which could be due in some part to Fred VanVleet exiting the game early with an injury. Lowry and VanVleet have been one of the better backcourt duos to own in fantasy as they are both inside top-20 value.
December 8, 2019, 9:16 pmSerge IbakaPF, Toronto Raptors
Serge Ibaka put up 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting before fouling out in 28 minutes in a loss to the Sixers on Sunday.
Ibaka added seven rebounds, three assists and three turnovers to the box score. Ibaka and Marc Gasol are struggling this season as they are both just outside top-150 value. Gasol had a terrible night as he put up zero points on 0-of-6 shooting. Neither guy is worth owning in standard leagues, but Ibaka looks like the preferred option of the two.
December 8, 2019, 9:14 pmJeff TeaguePG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Jeff Teague will play through his left ankle soreness on Sunday.
Andrew Wiggins is back for this game so Teague will not be expected to do too much for the Wolves tonight. It is a difficult opponent in the Lakers but get Teague out there.

December 8, 2019, 9:11 pmOG AnunobySF, Toronto Raptors
OG Anunoby scored 19 points with 10 boards in 35 minutes in a 110-104 loss to the Sixers on Sunday.
Anunoby shot 8-of-14 from the field with four steals and one block. He is hovering around top-50 value on the season and serves as a great defensive anchor for your squad.
December 8, 2019, 9:09 pmKarl-Anthony TownsC, Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl Anthony-Towns (right knee tendinopathy) is a go for when the Wolves clash with the Lakers on Sunday.
This won't be an easy game for Towns as he has to deal with Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee, but he has overcome those odds before to deliver big lines. Activate KAT with confidence.
