March 5, 2019, 6:09 pmKyle AndersonF, Memphis Grizzlies
Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will receive an anesthetic injection in his right shoulder and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Anderson has played only twice since January 14 as he has been dealing with persistent shoulder soreness. With him on the shelf for two more weeks before another update, he's safe to drop in the vast majority of fantasy leagues if you've held on this far. Bruno Caboclo, Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles and Chandler Parsons will continue to make up the small forward rotation.

Anthony Davis put up a strong showing on Sunday against the Hawks, throwing together 27 points (11-of-23 FG, 5-of-7 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal, despite having to limp through the final three minutes on a tweaked ankle.
Davis was comfortable closing out the victory after the ankle issue occurred, and we will have to see how it swells up overnight. Davis already has a sore right shoulder that is rather mild, but these small injuries can add up to rest days for the Lakers' superstar. Check back tomorrow to see if Davis is going to be able to suit up on Tuesday against the Pacers.
December 15, 2019, 10:05 pmRajon RondoPG, Los Angeles Lakers
We saw the good version of Rajon Rondo on Sunday during the Lakers-Hawks game, as he went for 11 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.
This was a classic Rondo game as he threw contributions together throughout the box score over 26 minutes. In his previous game he shot horribly, and his jumper will ultimately how large of a roll he is able to play on the Lakers. He is still just an assist resource for the time being, but don't be afraid to make the pickup if his playing time was to increase into the 30s on a regular basis. On a deep Lakers roster that won't be simple.
December 15, 2019, 9:59 pmTrae YoungPG, Atlanta Hawks
Trae Young was potent with 30 points (9-of-22 FG, 9-of-11 FT), three 3-pointers, seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and six turnovers, as the Hawks fell to the Lakers on Sunday.
Young is slowly heating back up in the scoring department, and he is bound to have a strong night from deep any game now. Early-round value is still a near guarantee with Young and John Collins should help make his life easier.
December 15, 2019, 9:48 pmDe'Andre HunterSF, Atlanta Hawks
De'Andre Hunter continued to make strides on Sunday against the Lakers, as he put together eight points, six rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.
Hunter's shooting from the field (2-of-10 FG) and four turnovers held him back from having a huge night. The Lakers are one of the toughest defenses to face, and this line was juicy if you look past those negative aspects. If he is available the upside is hard to ignore in standard leagues. Cam Reddish also had an intriguing night with 10 points (3-of-10 FG), one 3-pointer on six attempts, five rebounds, one steal, one block and three turnovers. Similar issues for Reddish here as the youngsters deal with the growing pains of adapting to the NBA. He has not shown enough consistency to match Hunter's appeal, but the potential is real.

Justise Winslow (back) remains out for Monday's matchup with the Grizzlies
Winslow is still getting ruled out a day in advance, and still carries enough shooting woes to make him a borderline player in 12-team leagues when he is healthy. With that in mind and this injury situation it is best to let someone else have a shot at holding Winslow.

Goran Dragic (right groin strain) has been ruled out for Monday's tilt with the Grizzlies.
Make that seven straight missed games for Dragic, and it is not clear when he will finally return to the squad. Unless you have him in an IL spot it is time to move on in most cases. He was worthy of 12-team rosters in standard leagues, but the ceiling was low, and you can find players with higher upsides on the wire.

December 15, 2019, 9:28 pmJabari ParkerPF, Atlanta Hawks
Jabari Parker did not blow away the Lakers on Sunday, but he was solid enough with 12 points, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.
Parker's ability to do a little bit of everything efficiently is making him into a mid to late-round player in standard leagues. It'll be interesting to see how things develop when John Collins comes back into the fold, but Kevin Huerter's left shoulder contusion at the end of this game should only help stabilize Parker's place in the rotation.
December 15, 2019, 9:28 pmWilson ChandlerF, Brooklyn Nets
Wilson Chandler put up two points with seven boards in 19 minutes in his first game back from a 25-game suspension on Sunday.
Chandler shot 1-of-1 from the field and added one steal and one block to the box score. The Nets waived Iman Shumpert to clear room for Chandler's return. If this game is any indicator of the minutes he will receive, he could put up late-round value with his versatile skill set.
December 15, 2019, 9:23 pmSpencer DinwiddiePG, Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie led the charge for the Nets with 24 points and six dimes in a team-high 30 minutes of action on Sunday.
Dinwiddie has been phenomenal since Kyrie Irving went down and has inserted himself in the conversation to be an Eastern Conference All-Star. He shot 9-of-21 from the field and knocked down two triples. There is a great sell-high opportunity for Dinwiddie as you might be able to get a top-50 asset for him.
December 15, 2019, 9:18 pmDeAndre JordanC, Brooklyn Nets
DeAndre Jordan put up 13 points and 11 rebounds in a 109-89 blowout win over the Sixers on Sunday.
Jordan shot 6-of-9 from the field and added two assists and one steal to the box score. Jarrett Allen got outshined by Jordan in this one as he put up just eight points and eight rebounds on 3-of-9 shooting. Allen is a better option, but Jordan still holds late-round rebounding and field goal percentage appeal.
