January 11, 2019, 9:44 pmTomas Satoransky - G/F - Washington Wizards
Tomas Satoransky had the game of his life, helping owners in seven categories with 18 points (7-of-10 from the field, 2-of-2 from the stripe) to go with 12 boards, 10 dimes, two 3s and two steals in Friday’s home win over the Bucks.
Sato also had six turnovers and didn’t record a block but owners aren’t complaining considering he had the first triple-double of his career. His time as a starter has been a little inconsistent so it’s great to see him finally get off. He’s been a top-100 play in fantasy over the last two weeks despite that inconsistency and should be owned in standard leagues.
January 20, 2019, 9:19 pmVictor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers
Victor Oladipo led the Pacers to victory over the Hornets on Sunday, ending the week on a high note with 21 points (8-of-20 shooting), two rebounds, seven dimes, three steals and two 3-pointers.
While he's not the same breakout star we fell in love with from 2017-18, Dipo has managed to slowly find an upward albeit bumpy path in the right direction after being lost with a slow start on the season. He's got the chops to blow up in the second half of the season, so he's still at a buy-low range right now, if you have faith in his game.
January 20, 2019, 9:10 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner worked the glass for the Pacers on Sunday and pulled down a game-high 16 rebounds while chipping in 9 points (3-of-9 shooting), three triples, one assist and three blocks.
Despite his low scoring output, this was still a solid performance coming from Turner thanks to those cash counters. The shoulder injury that he dealt with earlier this year looks to be in the rearview so feel free to deploy him with confidence moving forward. Domantas Sabonis took care of business on the offensive end with 16 points (6-of-13 shooting), eight rebounds, three assists and a steal in 23 minutes.
January 20, 2019, 9:04 pmKemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Kemba Walker led the Hornets with a solid performance in Sunday's 95-120 blowout loss to the Pacers, delivering 23 points and a full stat line.
Walker hit 8-of-18 shots from the field and 4-of-5 shots from the line, adding four rebounds, seven assists, three treys, a steal and one block to the box score on the night. He did a lot but clearly, by the result, he's not getting enough support. Nicolas Batum was not much help on offense with six points (1-of-4 shooting), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block. It looks like it's going to Kemba carrying the bulk of the scoring load on most nights as the Hornets struggle to hang on to that eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
January 20, 2019, 8:52 pmJeff Teague - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
An ill Jeff Teague headed to the locker room in Sunday's game vs. the Suns.
He was questionable coming into this contest and gave it a go but it appears that he's still under the weather possibly unable to continue. If he can't return expect to see Derrick Rose to soak up his minutes and possibly a bit of Jerryd Bayless.

January 20, 2019, 8:46 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb had a tough time on offense for the Hornets on Sunday, going 4-for-13 from the field to finish with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, two triples and a block.
While his scoring efficiency tonight left a lot to be desired, Lamb has earned enough of our trust equity to deserve a pass. He's someone who can fill up the box score and thanks to his locked-in role of being the Hornets second scoring option, Lamb has been able to deliver bankable mid-round value in 8/9-cat on the season.
January 20, 2019, 8:39 pmBismack Biyombo - C - Charlotte Hornets
Bismack Biyombo logged 24 minutes for the Hornets on Sunday and served up a double-double with 10 points, 12 rebounds and one blocked shot.
It was not an eye-catching line but the takeaway here is that it's something that's, at the very least, the kind of production worthy of a roster spot in 14-team leagues or deeper. Willy Hernangomez was but a shadow with six points and three rebounds to his name in 18 minutes of action.
January 20, 2019, 8:33 pmRicky Rubio - G - Utah Jazz
Ricky Rubio (hamstring), who has missed the last six games, has been tagged as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Blazers.
He was a full participant at practice, so we know that Rubio is definitely close to a return. Stay tuned for updates at shootaround because he could be upgraded to probable, depending on how he feels. Donovan Mitchell has been balling while Rubio has been out, so their shared-backcourt dynamic will be something to watch.

January 20, 2019, 7:43 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon (lower back soreness) is questionable for Monday's game.
Gordon was unable to play on Saturday because of his back pain, which he equated to a similar issue he dealt with in November that forced him to miss a game. Hopefully he'll be able to return relatively quickly this time as well. Jonathan Isaac moved down to power forward while Jonathon Simmons moved into the starting lineup on Saturday, and if Gordon sits that should be the same configuration we see this time around.
January 20, 2019, 7:21 pmJoel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers
Joel Embiid (back tightness) is questionable on Monday against the Rockets.
Embiid looked a little slow in the first half of Saturday's game, but turned things on in the second half. He's going to be on the injury report quite a bit going forward, so we'll just have to wait for more news to come out.

January 20, 2019, 6:57 pmJimmy Butler - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers
Jimmy Butler (sore right wrist) is questionable for Monday's game against the Rockets.
Butler had a rough shooting game on Saturday, so he could have been playing on a bad foot in that game. The Sixers play late on Monday, but if you have to set a weekly lineup, or your lineup locks at the start of the first game, you'll have to get up early and may be forced into a tough decision.
