LaMarcus Aldridge scored 30 points on 12-of-18 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 41 minutes on Tuesday in a 114-102 win over the Cavaliers.
Aldridge rebounded tonight with an efficient night from the field after two consecutive sub-36-percent performances. For as long as Kawhi Leonard remains out, Aldridge should continue to post top-30 value. At this point, selling high on Aldridge isn’t even really a thought, as it seems like a safe bet for him to finish as an early-round asset.

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 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.
November 12, 2019, 12:01 amMarcus SmartPG, 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 (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 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.
November 11, 2019, 11:55 pmJayson TatumSF, Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum was off his game on offense in Monday's 116-106 win over the Mavs, going 1-for-18 from the field to end the night with five points, eight rebounds, four assists and one steal.
Tatum has been steady prior to this stinker and has earned enough trust for us to give him a pass. It's just variance. Nothing serious. Expect a better version of him taking the court in the next one.
November 11, 2019, 11:52 pmEnes KanterC, Boston Celtics
Enes Kanter (left knee contusion) made his return on Monday and quietly put up two points and three rebounds in six minutes off the bench.
Kanter is being brought back slowly, which is understandable. He should steadily ramp up his minutes and production as he gets his legs back and should settle into a top-100 big man for his points, rebounds, FG% and low TOs.
November 11, 2019, 11:36 pmLuka DoncicPG-SF, Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic provided another great performance in a 116-106 loss in Boston on Monday, putting up a game-high 34 points (11-for-21 FGs, 9-for-10 FTs), six rebounds, nine assists and three -3-pointers in 34 minutes.
The Celtics were able to keep Kristaps Porzingis to just one field goal, but Doncic flourished even against tough defense on the road tonight. Luka is currently 4th/8th (8-cat/9-cat) on the player rater, which is a far cry from last season's 53/100.
November 11, 2019, 11:29 pmMaxi KleberPF, Dallas Mavericks
Maxi Kleber started on Monday vs. the Celtics and hit four threes on his way to 15 points (4-for-10 FGs, 3-for-4 FTs), eight boards, two dimes and a block in 33 minutes.
That's two starts in a row for Kleber. Dwight Powell came off the bench, played 30 minutes and shot 6-for-7 tonight. Both players are borderline startable in standard leagues, but it's going to be frustrating with the constant changes in roles.
November 11, 2019, 11:21 pmKristaps PorzingisPF-C, Dallas Mavericks
Kristaps Porzingis (rest) had a rough night on Monday against the Celtics, shooting just 1-for-11 from the field with four points, five rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.
Porzingis also had five fouls, which limited his minutes. The Celtics defense was very effective against him, but he should be fine the next time out.
