• Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune has heard that Kris Dunn is available "for the right price."

    Considering the Bulls drafted Coby White, traded for Tomas Satoransky and re-signed Ryan Arcidiacono, one wonders how low that price actually is. Johnson also adds that the Bulls have been rumored to have discussed a sign-and-trade with the Grizzlies involving Dunn and Justin Holiday. While Dunn does offer defensive potential, it looks unlikely that he'll be able to find a starting job somewhere next season. His fantasy arrow is pointing down.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis double-doubled again on Monday, finishing his night with 18 points, 10 rebounds, an assist and four triples in 32 minutes.

    Porzingis collected his third double-double in a row in this one, which is a nice sign of him slowly returning to form. There are likely more rest days ahead of him as the ware of a long season will start to grow, but he should also get bette ron a game-to-game basis with more reps. His long term outlook is as difficult to peg as any in the NBA.

  • Danuel House
    PF, Houston Rockets

    Danuel House returned from a three-game absence and had three steals and three 3-pointers, supplemented by 11 points (4-for-9 FGs), six rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes in a sizable win over the Blazers.

    House is right back to putting up middle-round value. With the shallow roster the Rockets have, House should continue to play a big role.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic was extraordinary in Monday's win over the Spurs, scoring a career-high 42 points (14-of-27 shooting) to go with 12 assists, 11 rebounds, five triples and five turnovers in 35 minutes.

    The Legend of Luka added it's latest chapter in this spectacular performance against the in-state rival Spurs. The top-10 level that he is playing at has passed the flukey stage a while ago, and this year could very well be the first step in a decade of dominance that Doncic is set to embark on both in fantasy and in real life. There is not much more to add here other than to enjoy the ride if you have him and stew in anger if you passed him up in the second round.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen was off all night, shooting just 2-of-12 as part of a nine-point, eight-rebound performance in a loss to the Bucks on Monday.

    Since Markkanen's 35-point, 17-board season opener, he hasn't cracked 20 points or had more than 11 rebounds and he's shooting just 36.2 percent for the season. It's a good time to buy low, but he's unlikely to come anywhere close to the ceiling that many predicted him to hit this season. Zach LaVine also had a bad night, shooting just 4-of-16 in defeat.

  • Taurean Prince
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Taurean Prince was off again on Monday, finishing his night with seven points (3-of-11 shooting), four rebounds, an assist and a block in 23 minutes.

    Prince has had three poor shooting games in a row, and his inefficiencies are slowley starting to bump him out of the top-120 ranks in 9-cat. The absence of Kyrie Irving (shoulder) is also clearly been a real drag to his game, and it isn't a terrible idea to bench him until he finds his stroke again.

  • Jarrett Allen
    C, Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen played well in 24 minutes in Monday's 86-115 loss to the Pacers, finishing with 10 points, 12 rebounds, an assists and a block in 24 minutes.

    Allen's fantasy prospects would be so much better if DeAndre Jordan (18 min, six points, three rebounds) wasn't around absorbing as much playing time as he is. If one is ever out of the way the other becomes a must-own, must-start type of player, but Allen is the clear guy to own between the two.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie did all he could in Monday's blowout loss to the the Pacers, scoring 28 points (9-of-21 shooting) to go with eight assists, five rebounds, four triples, a steal and a block in 33 minutes.

    Dinwiddie looks like he's just going to absorb all of Kyrie Irving's (shoulder) usage while he's out and is definitely a guy worth starting while he's got the leading role. He will butcher your FG% on a night-to-night basis though so hopefully you have a nice buffer to offset that.

  • Daniel Gafford
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Daniel Gafford played his first competitive NBA minutes on Monday and immediately exploded for 21 points on 10-of-12 shooting in 20 minutes in a loss to the Bucks.

    Gafford added five boards, one assist and two blocks to his night of dunks, as well. The Bulls are now missing their other backup centers, so the rookie could get regular minutes for a while. If you're feeling lucky and in need of big-man stats, Gafford could be worth an add.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte Divincenzo started and put up a nice line with 15 points (5-of-9 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four boards, four dimes, three swipes and three treys in 29 minutes in a victory over the Bulls on Monday.

    Divincenzo has started three straight games while Khris Middleton has been out, and while he hasn't blown the fantasy community's socks off, Divincenzo is showing that he's worth a look for streaming and deep leagues. He can rack up steals and threes quickly.

  • Justin Holiday
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Justin Holiday was great on Monday, finishing his night with 20 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and four triples in 32 minutes.

    Holidayhas gotten starters minutes over his last three games but that could come back to earth sooner than later with Malcolm Brogdon (back) and Jeremy Lamb (sprained ankled) both expected back soon. He floated himself to usuable fantasy value last year due to his high steals numbers in decent run. He's not seeing enough run this year to see those totals again, and should be left on your waiver wire as a result.
