• Marcus Morris
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Morris double-doubled 21 points with ten rebounds in huge Game 1 victory over the Cavs on Sunday.

    Brad Stevens decided to place Morris in the starting lineup over Aron Baynes in Game 1 and Morris proved that his coach made the right decision. Morris claimed that he was the biggest "LeBron-stopper" outside of Kawhi Leonard, which he backed up as he was on LeBron for much of the game while LeBron shot 5-of-16 from the floor. Morris played great defense on LeBron, but was also hitting threes down the stretch that kept the game out of reach. He likely has to continue this high level of play on both sides of the floor for the Celtics to remain dominant in this series.

Fantasy News

  • Kemba Walker
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Kemba Walker caught fire in Wednesday's 117-122 loss to the Pacers compiling 44 points, seven assists, seven triples, three rebounds and two steals.

    Walker continues to be an absolute beast this season. As the unquestioned veteran leader on this team, you can expect these explosions every so often throughout the year.

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon shot 5-of-11 from the field on Wednesday, finishing with a 14-point, 14-rebound double-double with four assists, one trey, one steal and one block.

    This was a solid outing coming from Gordon who has thus far underperformed in 2019-20. More lines like this one should go a long way towards pulling his needle in the right direction.

  • Paul George
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Paul George had a quiet Wednesday night by his standards but still fills the stat sheet, ending with 13 points, five boards, three assists, a steal, a block and two 3's.

    George is a first-round talent on a per-game basis this year. His health is looking good and he should be able to shoulder a lot of the load for fantasy teams this year.

  • Terrence Ross
    SG, Orlando Magic

    Terrence Ross was off his game on Wednesday and was limited to scoring four points on 2-of-11 shooting with one rebound, one assist and three steals.

    Ouch. Ross was on a bit of a heater prior to this one, so the sting is real. That said, he's been trending up so just consider this a hiccup thanks to a tough matchup against one of the best teams in the league.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown dropped 18 points (7-for-12 shooting), eight rebounds, eight assists, two triples and one steal in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

    Brown continues to show no signs of slowing down since the return of Gordon Hayward, who actually left this game. Brown seems like he's in a groove right now and should continue to produce.

  • Ivica Zubac
    C, Los Angeles Clippers

    Ivica got the start but was limited to seven points, contributing in other ways with eight rebounds, an assist, a steal and two blocks on Wednesday.

    Zubac only saw 16 minutes of action but made the most of it in the counting categories. He ceded his minutes to Montrezl Harrell who had 10 points, six rebounds and four assists. Patrick Patterson also chipped in with 11 points and seven rebounds. Harrell is the one to own here, even if he is coming off the bench.

  • D.J. Augustin
    PG, Orlando Magic

    D.J. Augustin started on Wednesday for an ill Markelle Fultz but was a virtual non-factor, mustering just two points, three rebounds and two assists.

    Augustin has taken a massive hit this season with the rise to viability of Fultz. Not only has he ceded the starting PG job, but Augustin has also struggled to maintain consideration in 16-team leagues or deeper.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum didn't have his shot going (4-for-13 shooting) on Wednesday but stayed aggressive attacking the basket (6-for-6 free throws) scoring 16 points to go along with six rebounds, three assists, two triples and two steals.

    Tatum had been shooting pretty efficiently recently so it's not a surprise to see that fall off a bit. It's encouraging to see him put up a productive line even on the off night.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love had a strong outing in Wednesday's 116-110 loss to the Rockets, finishing with 17 points, 11 boards, two assists, a steal and a block on 8-of-14 shooting.

    When Love plays, you can count on mid-round value from him. He is currently sitting as a top-70 player this season. A trade may result in Love playing in more games down the stretch, as well.

  • Mikal Bridges
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Mikal Bridges (left finger sprain) will play on Wednesday after being listed as probable.

    Hopefully Bridges picks up where he left off, which was rounding into a solid 3-and-D contributor.
