• Lou Williams
    G, Los Angeles Clippers

    Lou Williams scored on whomever the Celtics put in front of him on Monday, and with 34 points, he became the NBA’s all-time best bench scorer, passing Dell Curry.

    “You love that he likes coming off the bench,” Doc Rivers said. “A lot of players think that if you don’t start, it’s a knock.” Williams had his eighth game this season with at least 30 points, all off the bench, in only 23 minutes. He now has 11,154 points off the bench in 14 seasons, two sixth man of the year awards, and possibly a third on the way. Kudos to him and congrats to all his fantasy owners as he is returning top-90 value for the season.

Fantasy News

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left calf strain) is listed as questionable for Monday, although Monty Williams stated earlier in the day that he "is in a good place."

    It appears Baynes is ready to make his return to the floor. He may see a minutes limit in the early going. Dario Saric (lower back soreness) and Mikal Bridges both also popped up on the injury report as probable.

  • Brandon Clarke
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Brandon Clarke will miss his fourth straight game on Monday against the Warriors, as he continues to address his left hip soreness.

    Things have been quite during Clarke's recovery and he does not appear any closer to returning to action. In Clarke's absence Jonas Valanciunas and Jaren Jackson Jr. have been able to surge forward, and it is always worth keeping an eye on Bruno Caboclo.

  • Kyle Anderson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Kyle Anderson is still dealing with right heel soreness and is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

    This would be Anderson's fifth consecutive game missed. Things are starting to leak bleak for his fantasy outlook for the year, reminiscent of his disappointing 2018-2019 campaign when he appeared in 43 games.

  • JA Morant
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    Ja Morant (back spasms) has been listed as probable for the Grizzlies' tilt with the Warriors on Monday.

    Exciting news for Morant owners everywhere. He has missed four games due to back spasms thus far, but it has been less than two weeks since when he was originally listed as week-to-week by the team. With four games next week it is worth activating Morant in weekly leagues, in hopes he makes it out there for at least two of them, optimistically he could appear in three of these games. He faces a back-to-back this upcoming Friday and Saturday.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo is out on Sunday when the Lakers face the the Wolves due to a left hamstring strain.

    The injury originally knocked him out of Friday's contest, and Rondo is pretty fragile nowadays so it is not a huge surprise for him to miss this one. Minutes should be available for Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook at this point.

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson (right hip) is not expected to play on Monday according to head coach Billy Donovan.

    Ferguson has not been able to produce much when he is on the floor this season, beyond a 3-pointer or two on most night. You are better of ignoring him unless you are in a deep league.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham struggled from the field (4-of-17 FG) on Sunday, but still managed to deliver 12 points, eight assists, six rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals and just one turnover.

    Even if Graham has a rough night shooting, you can always bank on a healthy dose of 3-pointers and steals, and tonight he threw in some nice steals, turnover and rebound numbers. He continues to be one of the biggest shockers of the year.

  • Miles Bridges
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges had a strong night of shooting on Sunday as the Hornets met the Hawks, going 7-of-14 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line, on his way to 20 points, three 3-pointers, six rebounds and one steal.

    Bridges received nearly 38 minutes in this game, which offered up plenty of field goal attempts to rack up those 20 points. In his prior three games Bridges couldn't crack 25 minutes.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier had an ugly showing against the Hawks on Sunday, reaching eight points on 3-of-13 shooting, with five rebounds, four assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and four turnovers.

    Rozier's shot did not drop on Sunday and the four turnovers made the bad outshine the good in this stat line. These kinds of showings have thankfully not been the norm for Rozier as a Hornet, although it was the fear coming into the season.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (right knee contusion) will not return to Sunday's game versus the Sixers.

    VanVleet left Sunday;s game during the second quarter and was followed by training staff. The injury is being called a contusion, so it doesn't sound too serious, but the Raptors will let VanVleet have the rest of the night off. Norman Powell would be the biggest beneficiary if VanVleet is forced to miss any time.
