• Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic put up another triple-double in Saturday's 90-86, Game 7 win over the Spurs with 21 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists, a steal, three blocks and no turnovers in 43 minutes.

    A line like that means you can probably forgive his subpar 9-of-26 mark from the field. Jokic triple-doubled in the opening game of this series (10-14-14) but was right on the doorstep in the other five before tonight with 21-13-8 in Game 2, 22-8-7 in Game 3, 29-12-8, in Game 4 16-11-8 in Game 5 and 43-12-9 in Game 6. He draws a matchup with Enes Kanter in round two, and with his shoulder injury and historical issues defending in space, we should see a few more monstrous performances before the book closes on Jokic's outstanding season.

  • Taurean Prince
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Taurean Prince was excellent in Saturday's win over the Hornets, notching 14 points (5-of-10 shooting), four rebounds, four 3s, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 30 minutes of action.

    This was a good bounce-back game from Prince, who failed to score in double figures in back to back games prior to this gem. Overall, he's hanging around top-120 value on and off this season, making him a solid hold in standard leagues.

  • Garrett Temple
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Garrett Temple got some extended run thanks to garbage time in Saturday's 115-86 blowout win over the Hornets, posting 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting with 11 rebounds, three treys, three dimes and one steal.

    Temple has seen his usage seesaw up and down all season, making him a tough player to stream. Tonight was a good spot to do so. However, due to his high volatility, he's best used in 14-teamers or deeper.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Timothe Luwau-Cabarrot was an unexpected yet welcome scorer for the Nets on Saturday, chiming in with 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting in 23 minutes off the bench.

    TLC caught fire in this one, making 4-of-7 shots from 3-point land, adding four rebounds and 3-of-4 shooting from the line to the box. This is clearly an outlier outburst, with the 24-year-old totaling 21 points over his last four games before this one. Leave him on the wire.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (back) has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game.

    Raul Neto will be the biggest beneficiary of Simmons' absence, but is only good for low-end value. Josh Richardson should be able to improve on his playmaking skills in this one as well.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons appeared to tweak his back in Saturday's game and headed to the locker room.

    Simmons, who missed a game with back tightness could have come back too soon and the contact he took after drawing a foul may have caused it to tighten up.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (back) has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Oladipo is nursing a sore back and it appears to be improving. Check back closer to tip off to see if he's able to give it a go.

  • Edmond Sumner
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) is questionable to play vs. the Raptors on Sunday.

    With Sumner out, T.J. McConnell and Aaron Holiday should soak up the extra minutes at the backup PG spot.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw is doubtful to play in Sunday's game as he's still not yet recovered from an illness.

    McCaw has not been worth owning even in deep leagues. His absence has no significant impact in fantasy.

  • Mario Hezonja
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Mario Hezonja will miss Sunday's game with a left ankle sprain.

    Hezonja has fallen off the fantasy radar. His absence will not make any non-owners blink.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) is officially out for Sunday's game.

    Lillard was projected to miss at least 3-4 games, so this comes as no surprise. Until he returns, expect big games from C.J. McCollum and some deep-league value coming from Gary Trent Jr.
