• Giannis Antetokounmpo
    F, Milwaukee Bucks

    Marc Stein is reporting that the Warriors have “internally mused” about a run at Giannis Antetokounmpo, however futile it may prove to be, in the event they can’t convince Kevin Durant to re-sign this summer.

    Steph and Giannis are buddies, represented by the same agency, and they share a mutual admiration that has resulted in both of them selecting each other with the No. 1 pick in the first two All-Star drafts. Giannis seems to enjoy Wisconsin, and the Bucks are currently the best team in the East so even if the Warriors plan to go after him it sure looks like a long shot.

Fantasy News

  • Marquese Chriss
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Marquese Chriss was active on both ends of the floor in Friday's loss to the Jazz, recording 12 points (4-of-7 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs), 13 rebounds (ties career-high), five assists, one steal and two blocks in 23 minutes.

    This is the second straight double-double coming from Chriss and he's making a strong case for more rotational minutes. So far, it's his erratic free throw shooting and lack of consistency holding him back. He's worth a speculative add in 14-team leagues or deeper.

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney started for Eric Paschall (sore left hip) on Friday but did little with his 18 minutes on the floor as he was limited to to points, four rebounds and one steal.

    Looney has been mostly a non-factor in fantasy since making his season debut. He's worth stashing for his upside, but will require a little more than a pinch of patience as he gets into game-shape.

  • Jacob Evans
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Jacob Evans flashed some of his old form on Friday, posting 13 points on 4-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, one trey, one steal and two blocks.

    Evans has been fantasy-relevant in past seasons and could be on the rise as a deep-league target moving forward.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James picked the Heat apart on Friday to the tun eof 28 points (11-for-22 shooting), 12 assists, nine rebounds, four triples and a steal as the Lakers prevailed in Miami 113-110.

    James momentarily left the game in this one, but based on his final stat line I think it's safe to say he's all good. The assist production has been especially impressive so far this year for James, who continues to set up Anthony Davis and the Lakers three-point shooters.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Damion Lee led the Warriors bench on Friday with 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting with three rebounds and three treys.

    Lee's performance, while impressive, is still one-dimensional at best. He's been quiet prior to this outburst and will need a repeat performance before we recommend an add.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis dominated once again on Friday night as he totaled a team-high 33 points (11-for-20 shooting), 10 rebounds, four triples, three blocks and an assist as the Lakers won on the road again.

    Davis continues to be a fantasy force and the shoulder issue that has been popping up on injury reports is not slowing him down. Expect another big line the next time he takes the floor against the Hawks on Sunday.

  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope contributed 15 points (6-for-9 shooting), four assists, three rebounds and a triple in Friday's win over the Heat.

    The hot shooting was nice if you had KCP in a DFS lineup but it is a fool's errand to expect that type of performance on a nightly basis. With Kyle Kuzma out of the lineup, there is some stream appeal here.

  • JaVale McGee
    C, Los Angeles Lakers

    JaVale McGee finished Friday's win over the Heat with nine points, 10 rebounds, five blocks, an assist and a steal.

    McGee played a crucial role in the Lakers outlasting the Heat, and played some solid defense on Bam Adebayo and the Miami bigs. Don't consider McGee more than a rebounds and blocks streamer.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF, Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo destroyed the Grizzlies on Friday, adding 37 points (12-for-23 shooting), 11 rebounds, three triples, two assists and a steal in only 27 minutes as the Bucks got the win by a score of 127-114.

    It was already encouraging to see the Greek Freak back on the court after a right quad issue threatened to force him out for a few games. It was even better to seem him be so productive on limited minutes. He will look to keep it going tomorrow against Cleveland.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez finished with 10 points (4-for-8 shooting), 10 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a triple in Friday's win over the Grizzlies.

    Lopez scored in double figures for the first time in five games on Friday, but still continued to produce quality blocks production. Look for his shot to come back around soon and he should finish in the top-75 range this season.
