April 12, 2018, 4:04 pmTyrone WallaceSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Tyrone Wallace capped off his season with just four points, four assists, a steal and four turnovers in 28 minutes against the Lakers in Wednesday's loss.
Wallace moved back to the bench in this one after a couple a pair of decent games with the starters. He looked to be one of the Clippers' more engaged players in their season-ending defeat to the Nuggets and burst onto the scene with a strong January, averaging 12.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 combined cash counters in 32.7 minutes per game. He couldn't recapture that form at the end of the season but it was still a solid first taste of NBA action for Wallace, who graded out as a top-200/225 per-game player in his 30 appearances.

Cody Zeller double-doubled off the bench on Friday with 11 points (4-of-8 shooting), 10 rebounds, one 3-pointer and two assists.
Zeller has been playing well enough to warrant a pickup in 12-team leagues. Bismack Biyombo, who started but left the game briefly with right groin soreness, was equally effective with 12 points (4-of-6 shooting), nine rebounds, one assist and one block. Zeller remains the preferred big man to own in Charlotte.
December 13, 2019, 10:32 pmDevonte' GrahamPG, Charlotte Hornets
Devonte' Graham struggled on Friday, making just 4-of-14 shots from the field for a team-high 16 points, five rebounds, seven dimes, two 3s, three steals and seven turnovers.
It's a testament to how good Graham is this season, when you consider a team-high 16 points, a poor showing. It's just a bad game, which was shared by the whole team, so there's no cause for serious concern here. Keep deploying Graham with confidence.
December 13, 2019, 10:25 pmPJ WashingtonPF, Charlotte Hornets
P.J. Washington looked good in Friday's 83-73 win over the Bulls, recording 13 points on 6-of-17 shooting with 10 rebounds, two dimes, one steal and three blocks in a team-high 38 minutes.
Marvin Williams (right knee soreness) was out in this game, so Washington had a few more minutes to snack on for value. Washington's role is officially carved in stone and is a safe long-term hold in standard leagues.
December 13, 2019, 10:24 pmDerrick Jones Jr.SF, Miami Heat
Derrick Jones Jr. logged 28 minutes on Friday, adding 17 points (4-for-6 shooting), four assists, four rebounds, two triples and two steals
It was a nice night for Jones, who recently returned from injury and is showing he can handle a full load of minutes. The shooting was unsustainable in this one, but Jones is someone that can provide threes and defense and is well worth a look in deeper leagues.
December 13, 2019, 10:22 pmBam AdebayoC, Miami Heat
Bam Adebayo notched 12 points (5-for-11 shooting), 12 rebounds, five assists and a block in Friday's 110-113 loss to the Lakers.
Adebayo continues to look impressive this season and doesn't seem to be slowed down by the recent groin issue that was popping up for him. He's a safe bet for great rebounding, defense, scoring and assists. The next step for him will be becoming more consistent at the free throw line where he was 2-for-5 tonight.
December 13, 2019, 10:17 pmJimmy ButlerSG, Miami Heat
Jimmy Butler contributed 23 points (9-for-20 shooting), three rebounds, three assists and four steals in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
Butler went 0-for-5 from beyond the arc on Friday, but still provided a good fantasy line. He is the undisputed leader of this young Heat team and a good bet for all-around production most nights.
December 13, 2019, 10:14 pmKendrick NunnPG, Miami Heat
Kendrick Nunn had 16 points (7-for-15 shooting), seven assists, two steals, two rebounds and two threes in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
With 36 minutes in this one, Nunn continues to start and be a featured member of the Heat rotation. While they've been dealing with injuries all season long, it seems Nunn's role is safer than anyone not named Jimmy Butler or Bam Adebayo for this Heat team.
December 13, 2019, 10:14 pmJustise WinslowSF, Miami Heat
Justise Winslow (back) is out Saturday vs. the Mavs.
Derrick Jones Jr. has thrived in Winslow's absence, soaking up those extra mins on the wing. DJJ is worth an add, while Winslow remains a marginal hold in 14-team leagues or deeper.

Goran Dragic (right groin strain) is not traveling to Dallas for Saturday's game vs. the Mavs.
With Dragic still out, expect Tyler Herro and Derrick Jones Jr. to see more playing time.

December 13, 2019, 10:10 pmKelly OlynykC, Miami Heat
Kelly Olynyk chipped in 15 points (4-for-8 shooting), six rebounds, three assists and a steal in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
Olynyk also earned seven trips to the charity stripe on Friday, draining six of them. He and Derrick Jones Jr. – 17 points (4-for-6 shooting), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two triples – played well for the Heat off the bench.
