• Trae Young
    G, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young led the Hawks in Wednesday's 131-123 overtime win, tying his career-high with 36 points (9-of 22 FG, 16-of-17 FT) while adding eight rebounds, 10 assists and two 3-pointers.

    Young scored 36 for the second straight game and became the first rookie to drop 35-plus in two straight games since Allen Iverson in 1997. He even kept the turnovers in check with just three in 43 minutes. That's huge considering Young is a top-75 guy in 8-cat this season but just outside the top-150 in 9-cat. Over the last month Young is cooking with top-30/60 value and is riding high as his shots and threes are starting to fall after a dreadful beginning to the year. We're skeptical that he continues to play this well, but he's certainly a fantasy lineup fixture from here on out.

  • Mohamed Bamba
    C, Orlando Magic

    Mohamed Bamba was helped to the locker room on Monday after appearing to bang knees on a screen.

    Bamba was trying not to put any pressure on the leg as he was assisted into the tunnel, so it's probably safe to say he's done for the night. That would make his final stat line tonight two points, one rebound and one block in seven minutes.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers is a late scratch due to flu-like symptoms on Monday vs. the Kings.

    With Eric Gordon out, Rivers has been getting a good chunk of minutes each game, but he really needs about 30 minutes to put up standard league value. He's surpassed that mark a few times lately, but he shouldn't be counted on as more than a streamer.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    After catching an elbow to the facew, Jaylen Brown went to the locker room, but he returned to start the second half on Monday.

    Brown is having a solid game, so it's nice to see him back out there to pile up some more stats.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (left ankle soreness) is available on Monday, but he will not start.

    Teague has been a bit up and down overall lately, but even when coming off the bench, his assists have been consistent. He had six dimes in 11 straight games until he had just one on Sunday. He's still putting up standard league value.

  • Shabazz Napier
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Shabazz Napier (left ankle soreness) is available for Monday's game vs. the Suns.

    Napier has been playing limited but regular minutes for the last four game. His six assists in the last game were great, but he had just one dime in the previous three games. With Jarrett Culver and Jeff Teague handling the ball, there's not much left for Napier right now.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns
    C, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Karl-Anthony Towns (right knee tendinopathy) will start on Monday vs. the Suns.

    It'll take more than that to make Towns sit. An extremely reliable player, KAT is once again a first half of the first round player this season.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (left thumb sprain) will start on Monday against the Suns.

    Wiggins has been looking a bit more like the Wiggins of old recently. The drop in production has at least partly coincided with this injury, so hopefully he picks it up again once he's fully healed.

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Bogdan Bogdanovic (right knee contusion) is available to play on Monday vs. the Rockets

    Bogdanovic has drawn the probable tag a lot lately, but in the last few weeks, he's only missed last Wednesday's game. Unfortunately, the injury may be hampering him as his production has slipped over this time span. He's worth holding, but if you have the choice to bench him, you might want to watch for a big game before getting him back into your lineup.

  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley (right thumb fracture) will not play on Monday in Houston.

    Bagley is certainly close, based on his questionable tags. His next chance to play is on Wednesday against the Thunder.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    According to Shams Charania, "multiple teams" are starting to look at Marvin Williams' trade availability.

    It's not surprising given his quality stretch four play in a low-maintenance role, and the Hornets would be happy to move him for any futures. He's got potential to carve out late-round numbers in 9-cat leagues but it would take a perfect destination for that to happen.
