• Cody Zeller
    F/C, Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (knee) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Wizards.

    Frank Kaminsky will continue to see a minutes and usage bump with Zeller out while Willy Hernangomez, who started the previous game, would make for a nice streaming option if given the nod again on Friday.

Fantasy News

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Mitchell Robinson scored 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting while adding seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block in Thursday's 92-129 loss to the Nuggets.

    Robinson was able to log 30 minutes tonight which is a great sign, but the bad news is that he only blocked one shot and went 5-for-8 from the line. The Knicks are in complete disarray and Coach Fizdale remains as stubborn as ever so it's hard for Robinson to really break through and string together some solid games. These were all red flags we saw before the season started, but if Fizdale gets canned, there might be hope for Robinson to really pick up steam.

  • Ian Mahinmi
    C, Washington Wizards

    Ian Mahinmi returned from a lengthy absence on Thursday night, logging 13 minutes, seven points and five rebounds in his season debut.

    Out since early October with a strained right Achilles, Mahinmi picked a good time to return as Thomas Bryant has just left the lineup, and given the lack of center depth it's not impossible for him to stick in the rotation. Even so, he's a weak fantasy option in leagues of all depths.

  • Marcus Morris
    PF, New York Knicks

    Marcus Morris was back in action on Thursday, scoring 10 points with two boards, two assists, a block and two triples.

    Morris went 4-for-13 from the field and 2-for-9 from deep. The Knicks got nothing out of Julius Randle (six points, four rebounds, four assists) and Bobby Portis chipped in 10 points, four boards and a block but this situation is just putrid all around. Morris has the starting gig and almost unlimited leash so as long as things stay this way, he's a decent points streamer.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntlikina started on Thursday and scored nine points on 3-of-5 shooting with an assist and three triples.

    Ntlikina is coming off a hamstring strain and was penciled in a starter right before tip, but didn't do much with it. The entire Knicks team was stomped out tonight with only three players scoring in double-figures.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton returned to action on Thursday, playing 11 minutes and scoring four points with two boards and two assists.

    Payton came off the bench and hit 2-of-5 from the floor in a blowout loss. Even though he only played 11 minutes, he was a minus-17 which tells you a lot about this game.

  • Mason Plumlee
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Mason Plumlee had a mosnter game in Thursday's 129-92 blowout win over the Knicks, scoring 11 points with 11 boards, six assists, three steals and a block.

    Plumlee made all five of his shots from the floor and went 1-for-2 at the line and absolutely feasted tonight. Even though the Nuggets won by 37 points, Plumlee still only logged 21 minutes which means you still can't trust him in standard leagues.

  • Monte Morris
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Monte Morris scored a season-high 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting with three boards, six dimes, three steals, a block and a triple on Thursday against the Knicks.

    Monte Morris filled up the stat sheet and played 26 minutes, which is more than Jamal Murray thanks to the blowout nature of this game. Malik Beasley (14 points, two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers) also joined in on the fun but both players are streamers as long as the Nuggets are healthy.

  • Paul Millsap
    PF, Denver Nuggets

    Paul Millsap was solid again on Thursday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with six boards, three assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Millsap is still getting the job done against all odds and is beating father time, for now. His production has pushed Jerami Grant's (16 points, three boards, one assist and three triples) value into the gutter, but tonight Grant was able to produce due to the Knicks being an awful team. The Nuggets are relying on him on both ends of the floor currently due to Nikola Jokic's struggles.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton led the Nuggets in scoring with 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting with four triples, two boards, two assists and a steal against the Knicks on Thursday.

    Barton did a lot of damage in only 24 minutes of action and Jamal Murray (14 points, three boards, four assists and a triple) also had his fair share of buckets in his 22 minutes on the floor. Both players continue to be the primary scoring guards on a Nuggets team that is still looking for their groove on offense. Tonight was a step in the right direction.

  • Gary Harris
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris was quiet on Thursday, scoring eight points on 3-of-4 shooting to go with two boards, two assists, a steal and two triples.

    Harris had a decent stretch of play, but tonight he couldn't eat much due to the rest of the Nuggets torching the Knicks. He's going to be a bit of a headache to own due to his inconsistency.
