• Royce O'Neale
    F, Utah Jazz

    Royce O'Neale will move into the starting lineup on Wednesday.

    He's filling in for Ricky Rubio (hamstring) who was abruptly scratched before this one got going. The Jazz are very shorthanded in general fo this ballgame, and should provide O'Neale with ample opportunity to produce at multiple positions.

  • Cedi Osman
    SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Cedi Osman chipped in across the board on Friday, stuffing the stat sheet like a long-forgotten Thanksgiving turkey with 14 points, five rebounds, four assists, three treys, four steals and one block.

    Wow. That's a tempting line indeed. That said, Osman has been a tough player to trust. He's a top-180 player on the season but has been outside the top-200 over the last week. If you pick him up off the wire, don't get too attached.

  • David Nwaba
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    David Nwaba put up 13 points on Friday night, going 5-of-9 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers in 16 minutes of work.

    Nwaba had fallen out of the rotation but has now played at least 16 minutes in four of the last five games — the fifth, naturally, was a DNP-CD. That puts him on the map in leagues with 20 teams or more, as he's hit double digit scoring in three of those games, with six combined triples, three combined steals and three combined blocks.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie
    PG, Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie was able to post a quiet double-double in Friday's road win, posting 13 points, 12 assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

    Dinwiddie is on autopilot and should continue to provide a big lift with Kyrie Irving (shoulder) potentially out for a couple more weeks, if not longer. Even with his poor shooting percentages Dinwiddie is a comfortable middle-round guy.

  • Joe Harris
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Joe Harris knocked down 6-of-8 from 3-point range and 8-of-13 from the field overall on Friday, scoring 22 points and dishing five assists in a win over the Hornets.

    Harris continues to be Mr. Reliable for the Nets and fantasy GMs alike. We're not too worried about his numbers being boosted by Brooklyn's current injury bug, as even when others return he'll still be an elite source of threes with outstanding percentages for a guard. Harris is currently, and should continue to be, a top-100 option.

  • Taurean Prince
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Taurean Prince kept the good times rolling on Friday, posting 16 points (6-of-9 FG), five rebounds, five assists, two threes and a steal.

    Prince is sitting around the top-125 neighborhood on the full season but is a top-75 guy in the last couple of weeks, so he needs to be in all lineups until he cools off again. Be wary if you care about your field goal percentage, but there's no reason for Prince to be on any waiver wires.

  • Larry Nance Jr.
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. started for Kevin Love (illness) on Friday but failed to impress as he went 2-for-10 from the field for four points, 11 rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Don't get too fazed with this poor showing from Nance. The Cavs are already entertaining offers for Kevin Love, so Nance has a positive ROS outlook overall.

  • Iman Shumpert
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Iman Shumpert was able to tally four steals in Friday's win over the Hornets, also picking up four points, three rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes.

    Shumpert has been averaging a surprising 18.6 mpg with the Nets but is outside the top-300 in fantasy value. He's a deep-league streaming option if you need steals as he's picked up at least one in eight of his 11 games so far.

  • Kevin Porter Jr.
    SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Porter Jr. led the Cavs reserves with 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting on Friday, adding four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes of action.

    KPJ has been looking better and better lately and has even cracked the top-200 as the 179th best player in 9-cat last week. He's worth a speculative add in 16-team leagues or deeper. Porter Jr. even outperformed Jordan Clarkson tonight, who struggled with 3-of-11 shooting for eight points, two threes and two assists.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Old man Marvin Williams is done for the night after experiencing right knee soreness on Friday.

    Williams was off his game and did not do much to help the Hornets' cause, leaving them with just two points, one rebound and one block in 16 minutes of action. More PJ Washington will be on tap to close out the game.

  • Justise Winslow
    SF, Miami Heat

    Justise Winslow has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Wizards with a lower back strain.

    Winslow was just getting back into a groove, so it's unfortunate that he won't take to the court. Expect to see more of Duncan Robinson, who has been quite solid as a starter for the Heat in recent games.
