• In his first game back from a nagging back problem, Lauri Markkanen logged 26 minutes and picked up 10 points, six rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and a steal.

    Markkanen didn’t have his full complement of minutes, but he also hadn’t played with his two biggest competitors both on the active roster before tonight, either. While he’s almost a lock to come down from his season average of 30.7 minutes per game, he should remain owned across the board. Just temper your expectations a bit while the Bulls sort out their rotations.

Fantasy News

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler struggled to get much going during Sunday's loss to the Spurs going 5-of-14 from the field for 16 points, five rebounds and six assists.

    Butler has been struggling over the last three games and the shot attempts have been done. He'll look to bounce back during tomorrow's game versus the Kings.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo exploded for 21 points, 16 rebounds, six assists and two steals on 8-of-13 shooting during Sunday's 107-102 loss versus the Spurs.

    While most of the Heat's offense was sputtering, Adebayo was getting it done in all facets. Owners expected the big rebounding and scoring numbers, but his assist totals continue to be the cherry on top of his fantasy profile.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Lakers.

    Brown's thumb injury does not appear to be anything long-term and his return this week at some point is expected.

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Lakers.

    Marcus Smart started for Walker in the last game blew up and set a franchise record with 11 3-pointers made. Brad Wanamaker should see a few extra minutes off of the bench if Walker is forced to sit, with most of his usage getting spread out amongst the starters.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers (sprained right thumb) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Thunder.

    Rivers was forced to sit out of Saturday's game versus the Lakers and we saw Thabo Sefolosha make his way back into the rotation for 10 minutes.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday (left elbow tricep strain) questionable for Monday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    Holiday is in danger of missing his eighth straight game . Holiday owners just need to be patient and Josh Hart and E'Twaun Moore will benefit from extended run if Holiday is forced to sit.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len (lower back strain) is being listed as doubtful versus the Raptors.

    Len has missed the past few games, but being upgraded to doubtful is a step in the right direction. Bruno Fernando and Damian Jones would fill in for Len if he can't give it a go.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford (left hand sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday’s game versus the Nets.

    Horford injured his non-shooting hand on Saturday but it does not appear to being anything long-term. Norvel Pelle would be expected to see extended run if Horford is unable to play, but Pelle only has one day left on his 45-day contract.

  • Jordan McRae
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Jordan McRae, who left Friday's game after sustaining an ankle injury, is not on the injury report for Monday.

    Chalk this up as a big surprise but you're free to get McRae in your lineups if you'd usually have him in there. He's more of a borderline option now that Bradley Beal is healthy but you won't find too many better option for scoring punch at the end of your bench.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis (right knee soreness) went through a full practice on Sunday and is hoping to return to action on Tuesday.

    Porzingis was close to returning on Wednesday but had some issues in pregame warmups, so while this is a very positive report you will still need to confirm things on Tuesday night. Maxi Kleber is going to be tough to deploy in standard-sized leagues with weekly lineup locks next week.
