April 7, 2019, 6:47 pmLarry Nance Jr.F, Cleveland Cavaliers
Larry Nance Jr. had a full line of 11 points, 10 boards, five assists, four blocks and a 3-pointer in Sunday's loss to the Spurs.
Nance was basically the only bright spot for the Cavs in what ended up being a 22-point loss. Nance started this one even with Kevin Love (shoulder) back, which is a positive sign for the last few games.
December 6, 2019, 9:33 pmCedi OsmanSF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Cedi Osman chipped in across the board on Friday, stuffing the stat sheet like a long-forgotten Thanksgiving turkey with 14 points, five rebounds, four assists, three treys, four steals and one block.
Wow. That's a tempting line indeed. That said, Osman has been a tough player to trust. He's a top-180 player on the season but has been outside the top-200 over the last week. If you pick him up off the wire, don't get too attached.
December 6, 2019, 9:33 pmDavid NwabaSF, Brooklyn Nets
David Nwaba put up 13 points on Friday night, going 5-of-9 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers in 16 minutes of work.
Nwaba had fallen out of the rotation but has now played at least 16 minutes in four of the last five games — the fifth, naturally, was a DNP-CD. That puts him on the map in leagues with 20 teams or more, as he's hit double digit scoring in three of those games, with six combined triples, three combined steals and three combined blocks.
December 6, 2019, 9:31 pmSpencer DinwiddiePG, Brooklyn Nets
Spencer Dinwiddie was able to post a quiet double-double in Friday's road win, posting 13 points, 12 assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Dinwiddie is on autopilot and should continue to provide a big lift with Kyrie Irving (shoulder) potentially out for a couple more weeks, if not longer. Even with his poor shooting percentages Dinwiddie is a comfortable middle-round guy.
December 6, 2019, 9:30 pmJoe HarrisSF, Brooklyn Nets
Joe Harris knocked down 6-of-8 from 3-point range and 8-of-13 from the field overall on Friday, scoring 22 points and dishing five assists in a win over the Hornets.
Harris continues to be Mr. Reliable for the Nets and fantasy GMs alike. We're not too worried about his numbers being boosted by Brooklyn's current injury bug, as even when others return he'll still be an elite source of threes with outstanding percentages for a guard. Harris is currently, and should continue to be, a top-100 option.
December 6, 2019, 9:28 pmTaurean PrinceSF, Brooklyn Nets
Taurean Prince kept the good times rolling on Friday, posting 16 points (6-of-9 FG), five rebounds, five assists, two threes and a steal.
Prince is sitting around the top-125 neighborhood on the full season but is a top-75 guy in the last couple of weeks, so he needs to be in all lineups until he cools off again. Be wary if you care about your field goal percentage, but there's no reason for Prince to be on any waiver wires.
December 6, 2019, 9:27 pmLarry Nance Jr.PF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Larry Nance Jr. started for Kevin Love (illness) on Friday but failed to impress as he went 2-for-10 from the field for four points, 11 rebounds, two assists and one block.
Don't get too fazed with this poor showing from Nance. The Cavs are already entertaining offers for Kevin Love, so Nance has a positive ROS outlook overall.
December 6, 2019, 9:26 pmIman ShumpertSG, Brooklyn Nets
Iman Shumpert was able to tally four steals in Friday's win over the Hornets, also picking up four points, three rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes.
Shumpert has been averaging a surprising 18.6 mpg with the Nets but is outside the top-300 in fantasy value. He's a deep-league streaming option if you need steals as he's picked up at least one in eight of his 11 games so far.
December 6, 2019, 9:23 pmKevin Porter Jr.SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Porter Jr. led the Cavs reserves with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting on Friday, adding four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes of action.
KPJ has been looking better and better lately and has even cracked the top-200 as the 179th best player in 9-cat last week. He's worth a speculative add in 16-team leagues or deeper. Porter Jr. even outperformed Jordan Clarkson tonight, who struggled with 3-of-11 shooting for eight points, two threes and two assists.
December 6, 2019, 9:07 pmMarvin WilliamsPF, Charlotte Hornets
Old man Marvin Williams is done for the night after experiencing right knee soreness on Friday.
Williams was off his game and did not do much to help the Hornets' cause, leaving them with just two points, one rebound and one block in 16 minutes of action. More PJ Washington will be on tap to close out the game.

December 6, 2019, 7:59 pmJustise WinslowSF, Miami Heat
Justise Winslow has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Wizards with a lower back strain.
Winslow was just getting back into a groove, so it's unfortunate that he won't take to the court. Expect to see more of Duncan Robinson, who has been quite solid as a starter for the Heat in recent games.
