November 24, 2018, 12:10 amNoah VonlehF, New York Knicks
Noah Vonleh scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting (4-of-7 3PTs) with 11 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks over 37 minutes in Friday's win over the Pelicans.
Vonleh is bringing back value just outside of the top-100 this season in 24.9 mpg. It's hard to trust anything that David Fizdale is doing right now, but Vonleh has seen his minutes swell to just under 30 mpg over the last two weeks. Vonleh also looks like a better player than last season, and might be more answer than question for how things are going in New York. He's a must-own player right now, flat out.

Kemba Walker went to the locker room a little early on Monday after appearing to have some pain in his shoulder and neck area, though he led the Celtics to a win over the Mavs with a team-high 29 points in 33 minutes.
Walker shot 9-for-17 from the field with eight of the makes from deep. He also had five boards, five dimes and a block. It was a great performance and the injury seems like it shouldn't be anything major.

November 11, 2019, 10:14 pmLaMarcus AldridgePF, San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge got outworked again in Monday's 109-113 loss to the Grizzlies, scoring 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting to go with four rebounds, three assists and two steals.
Adlridge has failed to grab double-digit rebounds in any game this season and is showing some signs of aging. He's still putting up solid value as a top-50 player on the year so you might be able to buy-low on him if you want a dependable big. Just don't expect last year's rebounding numbers.
November 11, 2019, 10:12 pmDerrick WhitePG, San Antonio Spurs
Derrick White scored 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting to go with three rebounds, five assists, a block and two 3-pointers against the Grizzlies on Monday.
White played 29 minutes compared to Dejounte Murray's 19 and Coach Popovich still refuses to play the two together. This caps White's upside as Murray is their main point guard, but White makes for a great watch-list guy and a strong handcuff.
November 11, 2019, 10:10 pmDeMar DeRozanSG, San Antonio Spurs
DeMar DeRozan had a hollow 12 point game on Monday, adding seven rebounds, seven assists while shooting 6-for-15 from the field.
DeRozan is just abandoning the 3-point shot which is okay if he's going to dish out assists at this rate, but the shooting has to be much more efficient. He's barely inside the top-100 on the season with averages of 20.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.0 steals on .504 shooting. There's not too much upside beyond those stats, but there's still value in efficient scoring and the assist numbers aren't anything to look past.
November 11, 2019, 10:07 pmDejounte MurrayPG, San Antonio Spurs
Dejounte Murray only logged 19 minutes on Monday, scoring four points on 1-of-3 shooting to go with six rebounds, four assist, a steal and a block.
Murray was able to get numbers across the board, but he wasn't able to get much going for himself offensively. Tonight just wasn't his night, but he'll be better in the next one.
November 11, 2019, 10:07 pmAndrew WigginsSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Andrew Wiggins continued his hot start to the season with a game-high 33 points (12-for-20 FGs, 6-for-8 FTs) plus six rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three triples in 36 minutes on Monday in a 120-114 win over the Pistons.
This is quite a run for Wiggins, who has never provided more than late-round value in a season despite big potential. If he's on your roster, you've got to consider trying to sell high, as he has too many warts in his game to keep this up. He looks like he's easily on his way to his best season however, so rostering him all year should be quite beneficial too.
November 11, 2019, 10:04 pmRudy GaySF, San Antonio Spurs
Rudy Gay logged 27 minutes on Monday, scoring 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting to go with eight rebounds, two assists, a block and three 3-pointers.
Gay pops up every once in a while with a solid game, but he's outside the top-150 in value and with his minutes below 30, there's no reason to expect him to improve.
November 11, 2019, 10:04 pmBryn ForbesSG, San Antonio Spurs
Bryn Forbes scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with a rebound, an assist and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Forbes continues to drill triples at an excellent clip on high efficiency. He's a solid 3-point streamer, but that's about all he does.
November 11, 2019, 10:03 pmJaren Jackson Jr.PF, Memphis Grizzlies
Jaren Jackson Jr. led the Grizzlies to their 113-109 win over the Spurs on Monday with 24 points to go with six rebounds, five assists, a steal and four triples.
There's the game we've been waiting for. Jackson Jr. dominated both ends of the floor tonight and outplayed the much older and slower LaMarcus Aldridge. He hit 10-of-17 from the floor and went 4-for-6 from deep. JJJ will still deal with foul trouble pretty often, but the talent level and situation are too ripe for him not to produce top-50 value.
November 11, 2019, 10:02 pmTyus JonesPG, Memphis Grizzlies
Tyus Jones scored eight points on 3-of-10 shooting to go with six assists on Monday.
Jones could be a starter for a couple teams as he's more talented than your average backup point guard. He closed out the fourth quarter because Ja Morant wasn't playing well, but his upside is still limited with both guards healthy. Jones should still post solid low-end assist and steal numbers though.
