March 3, 2019, 3:45 pmLuc Mbah a Moute - F - Los Angeles Clippers
Luc Mbah a Moute will miss Sunday's game because of his sore knee.
Mbah a Moute has only appeared in four games this season, and we're only updating him because he was surprisingly listed as questionable this morning. There's no fantasy impact but it does sound like LMAM could be back soon — though we've heard that before.

March 20, 2019, 2:47 amDomantas Sabonis - F - Indiana Pacers
Domantas Sabonis double-doubled with 13 points, 16 rebounds and six assists on Tuesday vs. Clippers.
Sabonis grabbed his highest number of rebounds this months by more than a factor of two. He's still a top-100 player as long as he can right his percentages to where they were earlier in the season. Also helpful off the bench was Doug McDermott who went 8-for-12 from the floor for 17 points in 26 minutes.
March 20, 2019, 2:40 amCory Joseph - G - Indiana Pacers
Cory Joseph claimed four steals and had five points, four assists and one 3-pointer over 20 minutes in a start on Tuesday.
Joseph took over for Darren Collison (right quad contusion) tonight and it went about how it usually goes for CoJo: underwhelmingly. Tyreke Evans was the ball-handler that came up big as he went for 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 29 minutes.
March 20, 2019, 2:25 amMarvin Bagley III - F - Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley had 28 points on 12-of-15 from the field in Tuesday's debacle of a home loss to the Nets.
Bagley had seven rebounds, two assists and two threes on the night as well. He and Harry Giles were impressing the crowd together in the first half, but they made several mistakes down the stretch as the Nets came all the way back from 28 down. Bagley has been looking good lately, but keep in mind that he's putting up numbers similar to John Collins, which means he's lacking in steals, blocks and threes at this point.
March 20, 2019, 2:18 amDe'Aaron Fox - G - Sacramento Kings
De'Aaron Fox posted 27 points (10-20 FG), four rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two threes on Tuesday vs. the Nets.
It was a great game by Fox outside of his five turnovers. He's been a top-50/75 player in 8/9-cat leagues this season and looks like a future star.
March 20, 2019, 2:09 amBuddy Hield - G - Sacramento Kings
Buddy Hield missed all eight of his shots from deep in Tuesday's heartbreaking loss to the Nets.
Hield put up just eight points, though the rest (four rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block) wasn't bad. The Nets made a furious 4th-quarter comeback in this one, but Buddy and the Kings should bounce back just fine on Thursday vs. the Mavs.
March 20, 2019, 2:04 amNemanja Bjelica - F - Sacramento Kings
Nemanja Bjelica double-doubled again (14 points and 10 rebounds) on Tuesday in a start vs. the Nets.
It had been four games since Bjelica had reached double figures in either points or rebounds, but that now makes three double-doubles in six games for the big man. He's hard to trust in fantasy right now simply because his role often changes. But when Bjelica has gotten starters' mintues, he has been a top-100 player.
March 20, 2019, 1:55 amD'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets
D'Angelo Russell amazed with 27 4th-quarter points (44 in total) in the Nets huge 123-121 comeback win over the Kings on Tuesday.
The Nets had been down by 28 in the 3rd before scoring 45 in the 4th to complete the comeback. Russell also tallied four rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and six threes for the night. He's been hanging around the top-50 most of the season, and if he can just increase his consistency, the sky's the limit for the 23 year-old.
March 20, 2019, 1:46 amRondae Hollis-Jefferson - F - Brooklyn Nets
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson hit the game-winner vs. the Kings on Tuesday night after having his best game this month with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 17 minutes on 6-of-7 from the field.
The Nets just have too many better options than Hollis-Jefferson to allow him to regain much fantasy value. He can remain safely on the wire in standard leagues.
March 20, 2019, 1:41 amCaris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets
Caris LeVert, despite starting for Allen Crabbe (knee) and playing 24 minutes, had just six points, three rebounds and six assists on Tuesday vs. the Kings.
LeVert is still far from his pre-injury production as he once again illustrated tonight. If you're desperate for assists, he's a good option. But with his recent lack of steals, threes and points, he's just not going to be anything like early-season Caris LeVert.
March 20, 2019, 1:27 amKarl-Anthony Towns - F/C - Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns posted 26 points and 21 rebounds (plus four assists, one steal and two threes) in Tuesday's home loss to the Warriors.
Towns went 10-16 from the field tonight as he continues to roll toward another top-5 fantasy finish.
