November 12, 2019, 1:25 amNorman PowellSF, Toronto Raptors
Norman Powell logged 37 minutes against the Clippers on Monday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assist, a block and a 3-pointer.
Powell logged a ton of minutes and should continue to do so with Kyle Lowry (fractured thumb) sidelined. Late in the fourth quarter, Powell slipped on a wet spot on the court, but it looks like he avoided an injury as he closed out the game. He's a standard-league pickup in all formats until then.
December 10, 2019, 10:00 pmDavis BertansF, Washington Wizards
Davis Bertans continued to drain threes, making eight more on Tuesday in a 107-114 road loss to the Hornets in which he also had 32 points (11-of-18 FGs), nine rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes off the bench.
That makes it at least four 3-pointers in 11 of Bertans' last 13 games. In 9-cat leagues, he's been the 13th-best player over the past month. It's quite a shock, and it won't last, so either enjoy it while you can or sell high if you happen to have picked up Bertans at the right time.
December 10, 2019, 9:50 pmBradley BealSG, Washington Wizards
Bradley Beal struggled with his shot on Tuesday vs. the Hornets, missing all of his 3-point attempts for just the second time this season, but he did have 16 points on 6-of-19 shooting, four rebounds, nine assists and a block in 37 minutes.
Beal is in a bit of a shooting slump, but he's still been good for second-round value in 8-cat and third-round value in 9-cat for the season. He's a very safe star player this season.
December 10, 2019, 9:43 pmRui HachimuraPF, Washington Wizards
Rui Hachimura grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds in addition to 18 points (7-of-16 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), two assists and a steal in 33 minutes against the Hornets on Tuesday.
Hachimura has stepped it up a bit lately, especially withThomas Bryant out. He's gone from a borderline standard league player to a mid-round guy over the last few weeks. He's got a few holes in his fantasy game, but his free throw percentage has been spectacular.
December 10, 2019, 8:58 pmJames JohnsonPF, Miami Heat
James Johnson was not on the Heat's pregame injury report but is apparently ill and not in the building for Tuesday's game.
Johnson has struggled with injuries and conditioning issues to start the season. He can be left on the wire in all formats.

December 10, 2019, 8:55 pmDragan BenderPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Dragan Bender is still dealing with a right ankle sprain and will sit out Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.
Bender has not been on fantasy radars for a while now, but is someone to watch in deep leagues in case he stumbles into some meaningful rotation minutes upon his return.
December 10, 2019, 8:53 pmDaniel GaffordPF, Chicago Bulls
Daniel Gafford is probable vs. the Hawks on Wednesday with a left finger sprain.
Gafford has been the primary backup of Wendell Carter Jr., sending Luke Kornet into the aether of fantasy obscurity. Gafford is worth a spot on watch lists at this time and nothing more.
December 10, 2019, 8:49 pmCory JosephPG, Sacramento Kings
Cory Joseph (lower back soreness) is probable to play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.
Joseph has been a serviceable deep-league assist specialist while De'Aaron Fox is sidelined. He did manage to play on Monday, so hopefully he can gut it out again for Wednesday's tilt.
December 10, 2019, 8:46 pmBogdan BogdanovicSG, Sacramento Kings
Bogdan Bogdanovic (right knee contusion) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.
Bogdanovic has been on a slump and this knee issue is not doing his value any favors. Hopefully, he'll be able to give it a go and work his way back to mid-season form.
December 10, 2019, 8:43 pmMarvin Bagley IIIPF, Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley (right thumb fracture) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.
Bagley was unable to play on Monday, but it appears that he's yet another step closer to being able to make his return.
December 10, 2019, 8:37 pmJamal MurrayPG, Denver Nuggets
Jamal Murray has been diagnosed with a trunk contusion and is questionable to return to Tuesday's game vs. the Sixers.
With Murray unlikely to return, we should see a bit more of Monte Morris and Malik Beasley in this game.
