• Alan Williams
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Alan Williams is unlikely to return to the Nets.

    That's not surprising with the Nets adding DeAndre Jordan and drafting Nicolas Claxton. Big Sauce only appeared in five games with Brooklyn last season but put up 21.0 points and 14.7 boards per contest in the G-League, so he should find a good offer there or a lucrative contract overseas.

Fantasy News

  • Kendrick Nunn
    PG, Miami Heat

    Kendrick Nunn led the way again for the Heat with 23 points, five rebounds, eight assists and two steals as the Heat downed the Cavs 108-97.

    Nunn followed up a 20-point outing with this game and his fantasy owners have to be pleased with the returns over the last week. The leash just lengthened a little bit. We know he can score and has actually contributed quite a bit in other areas to keep himself on the radar.

  • Meyers Leonard
    C, Miami Heat

    Meyers Leonard started in Thursday's game and looked better than he has in some time, with 12 points, seven boards, two triples and a blocked shot.

    Leonard finally put in a good outing after quite a few duds recently, including a missed outing on Tuesday with an illness. He absolutely has potential to make some 3-pointers and be a late-round value for fantasy teams as long as he can play 25 minutes a night.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo scored 16 points and added 15 boards in 40 minutes of action in Thursday's win over the Cavs.

    Adebayo was strong again in this one from an offensive standpoint, but once again the defensive stats were absent with just one block. He's really killing teams at the free throw line but other than that, the returns have been quite good. He's going to be a good scorer and rebounder with defensive upside, so if he can bring the free throw percentage up even a handful of points, we have a clear top-50 asset.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler contributed across the board on Thursday with 14 points, six assists, three steals and two blocks in 39 minutes of court time.

    Butler was solid across the board even though he didn't have a big scoring output. The benefit with a player like Butler is that he always finds ways to make an impact. He's well on his way to being a borderline first-round value this season.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson was a non-factor on Thursday, scoring just two points and turning it over four times in a loss to the Heat.

    Thompson turned in a total dud in this one after a great start to the season. We should probably cut him some slack given his top-50 status on the year. Continue to roll him out, especially if Larry Nance Jr. misses some time.

  • Collin Sexton
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Collin Sexton scored 16 points on Thursday to follow up a season-high 20 points in Tuesday's contest.

    Sexton added four rebounds and three assists in a reasonably nice outing. Sexton has late-round value with quite a bit of downside when the shooting percentage really tanks. He's a good scorer but he's really not a great player at this point and that's the reality.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love was the same solid asset on Thursday in a loss to the Heat, putting up a double-double with 21 points, 10 boards, and five defensive counters.

    The five defensive counters (as well as three triples) were a nice bonus from Love, who has been huge for fantasy purposes as the only star on this otherwise very unimpressive roster. As long as Love is healthy and on this team, he's a lock for high-end value.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony has a agreed to sign with the Portland Trailblazers.

    The deal is reportedly non-guaranteed and with Portland sliding in the standings, the move screams desperation. Melo will be able to provide you some points on inefficient shooting if he can get minutes in the mid-20s and this move would mean Mario Hezonja and Skal Labissiere would lose most of their minutes. Nassir Little might slide over to the bench for Melo, but we'll find out soon enough. Carmelo Anthony hasn't been inside the top-100 in value since the 2016-2017 season and was barely inside the top-200 last season with 29.4 minutes a game. If you're scooping him up, make sure you're giving up nothing of real value.

  • Larry Nance Jr.
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. put up a nice 14 point and eight rebounds in 23 minutes of action on Thursday despite re-injuring a left thumb injury.

    Nance didn't come back after going to the locker room He aggravated his left thumb injury and we'll see if that keeps him out in future contests. If it does, we'll see more Tristan Thompson than usual. Otherwise, there isn't much additional value in the Cavs frontcourt

  • Hamidou Diallo
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Hamidou Diallo popped up as questionable on the injury report for Friday's game with a sprained left knee.

    Diallo struggled in Tuesday's game and was a non-participant in Thursday's practice so it hasn't been a great week for him. We'll see if he can suit up on Friday.
