• Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle came off the bench for 13 points (5-of-8 FGs), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples in a win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Thybulle ended up with some extra run because Josh Richardson didn't get his full complement of minutes in this one. Although Thybulle didn't get his patented defensive stats, it's great to see him getting more comfortable on offense. He will still likely have a hard time putting up consistent standard-league value on such a talented team.

Fantasy News

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic played well on Sunday as he put up 30 points and 10 rebounds in a 115-107 loss to the Pacers.

    Jokic shot 10-of-16 from the field and 8-of-12 from the stripe. He also added four assists, three steals and two triples to the stat sheet. He is a top-20 asset on the season and top-10 over the past two months, so look for him to be a first-round value the rest of the way.

  • Monte Morris
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris did not play well against the Pacers on Sunday as he put up two points and five assists on 1-of-7 shooting.

    Morris was supposed to be a prime streaming option, but he has not played well in his last two started with Jamal Murray (ankle) out. He will likely still have another couple of games to improve until Murray returns, but he will not hold any long-term value aside from assists in deep leagues.

  • Robin Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Robin Lopez is doubtful to play against the Bulls on Monday as he recovers from an illness.

    The minutes will shift towards Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. Wilson in all likelihood, but Lopez is just an end of the bench option for the Bucks. You do not need to go running to stream Ilyasova or Wilson on Monday, especially with nearly every NBA squad suiting up.

  • Terrance Ferguson
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson (personal) is slated to miss Monday's showdown with the Rockets.

    An illness had Ferguson out previously, and now he will miss another game for personal reasons. Ferguson is a nonfactor for fantasy purposes, although with him out the minutes will get spread towards more interesting options like Hamidou Diallo and Darius Bazley. Both are deep league plays.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    On Monday, Glenn Robinson III is questionable to take on the Blazers as he is dealing with a right ankle sprain.

    Robinson is an end of the roster option in standard leagues as he is an efficient option that does not hurt you in any of the percentages. If he could ever increase his usage rate he would be an exciting standard league play, but he has been offered every opportunity to do so on the injury-plagued Warriors already. Clearly he is just an end of the roster option if you can't find an exciting prospect. While he is out the minutes will be distributed throughout the roster. Jordan Poole, Alec Burks and Ky Bowman stand out as the most likely to benefit.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen is probable, as always, to play against the Bucks on Monday due to a left ankle sprain.

    You know the drill by now if you follow the Bulls' injury reports. They always throw the probable tag on a player if there is any sign of a problem. Markkanen will be out there and should be able to improve upon the late-round value he has been delivering so far this season.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Suffering from a quad bruise, Cameron Johnson is questionable to take on the Spurs on Monday.

    Kelly Oubre Jr. (concussion) is on the verge of a return which would make Johnson's role largely irrelevant anyway. Johnson could get some minutes down the stretch this season, but for now, he's just a 3-point streamer if you are desperate for help on a slow schedule day. His role with the Suns is minimal for the time being.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes is doubtful to face the Spurs on Monday as he is dealing with left hip soreness.

    As if you needed any further validation that Aron Baynes' role with the Suns has vanished. With the return of Deandre Ayton, Baynes was going to have a hard time maintaining standard league value, but the drop off has been steep, and perhaps this new injury is part of the problem. Baynes has seen under 15 minutes in three straight games and is an afterthought for standard leagues at this point.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. is probable to face the Spurs on Monday as he works his way through concussion protocol.

    It sounds like Oubre has a fair shot to return on Monday but check back to be sure. His return will reduce Mikal Bridges' role, although Bridges will still be in line for regular minutes. Before sustaining the injury Oubre was playing splendidly, do not hesitate to have him in your lineup on Monday once he gets the go-ahead.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum (left ankle sprain) ruled out for Monday's tilt vs. the Warriors.

    McCollum will miss his second game due to the injury. He was spotted without a limp on Saturday so there is reason to hope this is a short term problem. Anfernee Simmons makes for a solid play in standard leagues right now, and the main Blazers for fantasy purposes, Damian Lillard, Carmelo Anthony and Hassan Whiteside, will get boosts in value as well.
