March 9, 2019, 8:03 amVince CarterG/F, Atlanta Hawks
Vince Carter said he hopes to play in a 22nd NBA season next year if teams are interested.
At 42 years old, Vinsanity is averaging 7.1 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.6 triples on a career-high 40.9 percent shooting from downtown in 16.6 minutes for the Hawks, his eighth NBA team. If he does play one more full season, that would bump him ahead of Dikembe Mutombo for fourth oldest player of all-time. He is currently 20th on NBA’s all-time scoring list and sixth all-time in 3-pointers. He is not on any fantasy radar anymore but will always be half-man, half-amazing.

Jordan Clarkson led the Cavs in scoring on Monday with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting while adding three boards, three dimes, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Clarkson was one of two players to score in double figures and we'll chalk this up as a fluke performance. He's too inconsistent to be a standard-league guy, but the 3-point streaming appeal is there if you're desperate.
December 9, 2019, 9:43 pmCollin SextonPG, Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton struggled on Monday, scoring eight points on 4-of-14 shooting to go with four rebounds and three assists.
Sexton was one of the many Cavs players who got absolutely stifled tonight as the Celtics ran up the score and won by 22. He has some value in points leagues and for owners who really need buckets, but still can't do it efficiently or hand out enough dimes to ease these bad shooting nights.
December 9, 2019, 9:42 pmPatrick BeverleyPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Patrick Beverley double-doubled in a win over the Pacers on Monday, putting up 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a three in 39 minutes.
This was a great game for Beverley, who has had a nice season so far. He's providing late-round value, but he's not a fit for every team. Also with double-digit rebounds tonight was Maurice Harkless, who put up eight points, 14 rebounds and a block in 35 minutes. Harkless is mainly a steals streamer right now.
December 9, 2019, 9:31 pmMohamed BambaC, Orlando Magic
Mohamed Bamba (left knee contusion) is questionable to return on Monday.
That's good news that he hasn't been ruled out. The injury must not be as bad as it looked.

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 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.

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 (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 (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 (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.
