• NBA Draft
    Team, College

    The NBA recently announced that the draft eligibility rules could be revised prior to the 2024 collective bargaining agreement, as early as 2021.

    The Palm Beach Post highlighted that the Heat are the only team that's traded a 2021 pick so far, sending an unprotected first to the Suns for Goran Dragic. This draft could be loaded as it will have a complete crop of high school seniors and college freshman eligible to be drafted.

  • Marquese Chriss
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Marquese Chriss went to the locker room in the fourth quarter on Tuesday.

    Chriss has had an excellent night on 8-of-10 shooting and 21 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes. With the way the Warriors have been extra caution about sitting players this season, this warrants some attention regarding their next game on Thursday.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown's 24 points (8-of-19 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs) helped the Celtics cruise to a road win over the Blazers on Tuesday, and he also contributed seven boards, two dimes, a steal and a three in his 34 minutes.

    Brown's breakout season continues. He should have no trouble providing top-100 value for the rest of the season with upside for top-50 production if he can get his defensive stats up a bit.

  • Marcus Smart
    PG, Boston Celtics

    Marcus Smart didn't shoot well on Tuesday, going 4-for-9 from deep but 0-of-7 from two-point land, good for 12 points in 31 minutes against the Blazers.

    The rest of Smart's line was solid with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block. Smart has been starting with Kemba Walker (left knee soreness) out, but his production hasn't been much different than when he comes off the bench.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum was stellar again as he led the Celtics to a 118-106 win over the Blazers on Tuesday with a game-high 36 points on 14-of-22 shooting with eight 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    Tatum has crept his way into first-round value for the season. His improvements in points and threes this year have even grown recently. His shooting will cool off at some point, but he’s a safe bet to produce second-round value for the rest of the season.

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic was able to put together a well-rounded two-way performance in Tuesday's easy win over the Pistons, recording 16 points (5-of-8 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, four assists, one trey and four steals in 28 minutes.

    Jokic is in full cruise control mode right now and is coasting towards a top-10 finish to the season. His efficiency and multi-cat lines have made his upward curve all the more enjoyable for his owners.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray played a solid 33 minutes for the Nuggets in their 115-98 win over the Pistons on Tuesday, registering 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting with five rebounds, eight dimes, two 3s, one steal and one block.

    The full line was a nice touch and to Murray's credit, he's been showing a more active presence on both ends of the floor lately – helping him improve on his locked up top-50 value on the season.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant led the Nuggets with a team-high 29 points on 12-of-16 shooting, adding five boards, three treys and one assist in 29 minutes.

    In case the math slipped you by, Grant scored one point per minute, which is obviously impressive. That said, he's been trending down and was a big drop candidate since moving back to the bench. This was a blowout game, so play it prudent and wait and see with Grant for now.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose had himself had a solid performance on Tuesday, posting 20 points (6-of-14 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), two rebounds, the five assists, one 3-pointer and two steals in 22 minutes.

    There's no chance that Rose is getting a buyout and considering the Pistons' place in the standings and the makeup of their current roster, he's got a nice path for value within the top-150. That said, there could be some maintenance days for rest down the road for him.

  • Donta Hall
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Donta Hall made his NBA debut on Tuesday and quietly put up four points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench.

    This was a good eye test for Hall, who is currently on a 10-day deal. He can be left on the wire with confidence.

  • Pascal Siakam
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam splashed five 3-pointers on his way to 22 points (6-of-14 FGs) on Tuesday in a home loss to the Bucks while adding six rebounds, three assists and a block in 38 minutes.

    It's the third time in five games that Siakam has drained at least five 3-pointers. Siakam just continues to improve, tossing in more threes and even a few more blocks recently. He probably won't make it to Giannis Antetokounmpo's level in reality, but with the discrepancy in free throw percentage and threes, he's nearly caught him in fantasy production.
