• Victor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo scored a team-high 28 points in Monday's 94-98 loss to the Rockets, going 11-of-21 from the field with six rebounds and four 3-pointers.

    Oladipo didn't have a steal for the first time in six games but carried the offensive burden tonight as the Pacers only had four double-digit scorers — two of whom scored 11 points. He hit a big 3-pointer to tie the game late but then conceded a wide-open three to James Harden the next time down the floor, getting a little too eager to help defend a cutter. That small mistake aside, Oladipo is rocking and rolling with elite fantasy value.

  • John Wall - G - Washington Wizards

    John Wall was fined by the Wizards for cursing at Scott Brooks during a recent practice.

    So, to recap: This morning Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Wizards would be willing to listed to trade offers for anyone on the roster, Shams Charania reports that the Wizards had a volatile practice that featured multiple verbal altercations, J. Michael reports that Bradley Beal has no interest in staying with the Wizards past his current contract and now Woj caps it off with Wall's fine. It's been a big day for the Wizards. Wall reportedly hit Brooks with "F— you" after the coach wanted the team to raise its intensity. Wall apologized to Brooks and his teammates shortly after. He's been able to maintain early-round fantasy value despite the dysfunction in Washington.

  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    The Celtics made a late lineup change on Monday, sending Gordon Hayward to the bench in favor of Aron Baynes.

    No word on the reason for this change — perhaps the Celtics want Hayward to get more usage leading a second unit that lacks a go-to scorer. Baynes' fantasy value doesn't change but this could end up being a good thing for Hayward assuming he still gets his usual minutes.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay will be in the lineup on Monday night when the Spurs face the Pelicans.

    There was some thought that Gay would sit tonight having played on Sunday but he'll be out there as San Antonio tries to add to their win streak. Expect Gay to get a handful of rest days throughout the season.

  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Wesley Matthews (hamstring) will not play on Monday.

    Matthews went through a pregame warmup to see if he could go but his strained left hamstring is still giving him some troubles. With the Mavs also missing Dwight Powell and J.J. Barea out tonight, we'll see a lot of extra minutes for bench guys like Dorian Finney-Smith, Maxi Kleber and Jalen Brunson. It doesn't sound like Matthews will be out much longer but hamstring injuries can be tricky.

  • Wesley Matthews - G/F - Dallas Mavericks

    Wesley Matthews will determine his status for Monday's game after going through a pregame workout.

    Matthews is dealing with a left hamstring strain but seems close to a return, even if that doesn't happen tonight. Stay tuned for updates on tonight's game.

  • Bradley Beal - G - Washington Wizards

    J. Michael of the Indianapolis Star is reporting that it's a well-known secret among front offices that Bradley Beal will not stay with the Wizards past his current contract.

    Michael used to be on the Wizards beat with NBC Sports Washington, so it's not surprising that he would have some D.C. connections. This got stirred up when Shams Charania reported earlier today that the Wizards recently had a volatile practice where Beal told management "I've been dealing with this for seven years." The dysfunctional Wizards are desperate for change, and while they'd probably prefer to avoid dealing one of their backcourt stars they may not have a choice.

  • Avery Bradley - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    Avery Bradley will return from a six-game absence to play against the Hawks on Monday and is in the starting lineup.

    It should be a low-pressure spot to get Bradley re-integrated with the rotation as the Clippers go with a three-guard lineup. He'll be competing primarily with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander for minutes and it's a battle he's not likely to win with how SGA has been playing lately. AB should be back on the bench when Danilo Gallinari (illness) is ready to play again. Leave Bradley on the wire in standard leagues but consider him a viable add in 16-team formats and beyond.

  • Danilo Gallinari - F - Los Angeles Clippers

    Danilo Gallinari (illness) will not play on Monday night.

    Gallinari will miss his first game of the year, and at least it's not because of an injury. The Clippers will need to find alternative sources of scoring with him out, but look for usual suspects Lou Williams and Tobias Harris to get the most extra shots up. Mike Scott and Tyrone Wallace could see added time off the bench.

  • Dwight Howard - C - Washington Wizards

    Dwight Howard is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Howard sat out Monday's practice and seems unlikely to play tomorrow given that it apparently hurt to put socks on before Sunday's game. The Wizards will go small with Jeff Green and Kelly Oubre soaking up most of the extra minutes. Green started the second half of Sunday's game.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson will be limited to 10 minutes on Monday night.

    It's Anderson's season debut after an offseason procedure on his leg. He'll play in three-minute stints, with one floating minute he'll make up somewhere. Anderson is worth keeping an eye on in deep leagues but won't be a serious consideration until he's playing minutes in the high teens.
