• Monte Morris
    G, Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris had 16 points, five rebounds, six assists, one steal and four threes in 27 minutes in a win over the Wolves on Tuesday.

    Morris got some extra run with Isaiah Thomas picking up a DNP-CD and because of some garbage time. The Nuggets are deep, so it's unwise to expect this to happen regularly, but when he gets the opportunity, Morris is very efficient and productive.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum had another efficient night shooting the ball, scoring 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting while adding 11 baords, two assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

    Wow. What a game from Tatum, who is posting top-35 value on the year on only .411 shooting. He's averaging a career-high 21.2 points per game while chipping in 1.4 steals and 0.7 blocks and there's actually room for growth here as his shooting percentages should climb.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown kept his foot on the gas on Monday, scoring 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Brown is showing signs of putting it together as he makes significant strides in his game this season. He's averaging a career-high 20.0 points per game on .496 shooting to go with 2.1 triples, 6.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals. Owners should carefully watch how he fares as Gordon Hayward slowly gets integrated, but it looks like he should be able to continue providing top-80 value.

  • Montrezl Harrell
    PF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Montrezl Harrell had a good game on Monday in a win over the Pacers, going for 26 points (12-of-22 FGs, 2-of-5 FTs), eight boards, one dime and one rejection in 30 minutes.

    Harrell has just about matched his production from last season, which is a bit surprising considering that the team added two superstar forwards. His points per game have even increased. Unfortunately, the free throw percentage has gotten worse. Harrell is a safe mid-round player at this point. Also off the bench but with a dud, was Lou Williams with six points on 2-of-19 shooting with one board, six assists and one block.

  • Gordon Hayward
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward returned to action on Monday, scoring 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting while adding five rebounds, four assists and a steal.

    Hayward missed the last 13 games due to a fracture in his left hand and while he didn't get either of his 3-point attempts to fall, it's a good sign that he was able to score efficiently tonight. He was posting nearly top-25 value before going down and the 26 minutes are a decent amount considering how much time he's missed. Fire him up in all leagues.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis scored 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting on Monday, adding a rebound, two assists, three blocks and two triples.

    Theis produced across the board and took advantage of an easy matchup. He played 21 minutes compared to Enes Kanter's 17 (seven points, four rebounds and one block). Neither player is very attractive to own, especially with Robert Williams (left hip soreness) set to return soon.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson was the only player on the Cavs that showed up on Monday, scoring 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting with 11 boards and an assist.

    The rest of the team succumbed to the blowout nature of this game and put up awful lines, but Thompson survived. Surprisingly, he's been the best Cavs player in fantasy throughout the year, posting top-75 value in 9-cat leagues.

  • Mohamed Bamba
    C, Orlando Magic

    Mohamed Bamba (left knee contusion) returned to the game on Monday in the third quarter.

    That's excellent to see Bamba back so quickly after he was helped to the locker room by multiple people.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love scored seven points on 3-of-12 shooting while adding 10 boards, an assist and a 3-pointer on Monday.

    The trade rumors are about to be in full swing and while Love didn't show much tonight, he should still be able to put up decent value in triples and boards wherever he lands. His defensive abilities are well documented, but he can still get it done in fantasy.

  • Jordan Clarkson
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Jordan Clarkson led the Cavs in scoring on Monday with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting while adding three boards, three dimes, a steal and three 3-pointers.

    Clarkson was one of two players to score in double figures and we'll chalk this up as a fluke performance. He's too inconsistent to be a standard-league guy, but the 3-point streaming appeal is there if you're desperate.

  • Collin Sexton
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Collin Sexton struggled on Monday, scoring eight points on 4-of-14 shooting to go with four rebounds and three assists.

    Sexton was one of the many Cavs players who got absolutely stifled tonight as the Celtics ran up the score and won by 22. He has some value in points leagues and for owners who really need buckets, but still can't do it efficiently or hand out enough dimes to ease these bad shooting nights.
