• Will Barton
    G, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton led the Nuggets with 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting in 33 minutes of action in a 115-99 win over the Lakers on Wednesday.

    He made five 3-pointers and added four rebounds and five assists to the box score. Jamal Murray chipped in 19 points with eight rebounds and four assists on 8-of-20 shooting as well. Murray is a top-100 value, while Barton is more of a late-round option at top-150 value.

  • Deonte Burton
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Deonte Burton has been sent down to the G-League after serving a one-game suspension for a locker room altercation.

    Burton had played in 13 games for the Thunder this season but failed to make much of an impact in any of them. This move has no real baring in fantasy leagues, and seeing how this follows a punishment for his role in a locker room fight it's likely that we won't be seeing him back up in the pros for a while.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Allen Crabbe (right knee) has been upgraded to probable for Sunday's tilt against the Hornets.

    Crabbe has missed his last two games following a minor surgical proceedure on his knee, but it seems like that stint on the sidelines is set to end today. He's not on the fantasy radar, and can really only be considered a fringe 3-point specialist at best.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    The 76ers have yet to submit an injury report ahead of their game against the Raptors on Sunday, the team expects Joel Embiid to be active after missing Saturday's game for rest.

    We'll have an update very soon, but it's encouraging that his teammates are saying that he'll play. Embiid will get a chance to avenge his 0-of-11 shooting night versus Marc Gasol from a few weeks ago. This is par for the course for Joel Embiid, but 18 games from the Process with a quarter of the season in the books is a win for both Philly and anyone who rosters him in fantasy leagues.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (disloacted index finger) is now being listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Hornets.

    He was listed as doubtful yesterday so there is a chance he could see the floor in this one. His return would take shots from Cam Reddish, who is coming off his best game as a pro. Stay tuned for more updates.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham is averaging 19.1 points, 7.8 assists and 3.7 threes per game in his breakout sophomore season and he's starting to create buzz as a Most Improved Player award candidate.

    Graham is shooting 42 percent from three after tripling his attempts from behind the arc this season, joining the upper echelon of the league's sharpshooters at the ripe age of 24. He's not only an efficient scorer, but he's effectively raising the production of the Hornets' entire lineup when he's on the floor, adding nearly 20 points per game off of assists to his teammates. It's no surprise that he's jumped ahead in the MIP discussion. We've said it here before, but Graham is not a sell high player and congratulations are in order if you plucked him off the wire during that first week.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points with four rebounds, three assists and seven turnovers in a 126-112 blowout victory over the Grizzlies.

    The turnovers were the one blemish on this game for Mitchell. He is sitting inside the top-30 and should stay within that range with potential to climb into the top-20.

  • Bojan Bogdanovic
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Bojan Bogdanovic dropped 19 points on Saturday while shooting 5-of-13 from the field, 2-of-6 from deep and 7-of-7 from the line.

    Bogdanovic continues to roll, producing top-60 value with solid contributions in points, threes and free throw percentage.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert double-doubled with 19 points (8-of-9 from the field) and 11 boards on Saturday.

    Gobert was almost perfect from the floor and added five assists, but he failed to record a block. Gobert is top-40 on the season and could get back to second-round value if his blocks increase slightly.

  • Joe Ingles
    SF, Utah Jazz

    Joe Ingles double-doubled with 12 points, 10 assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Saturday.

    Ingles saw extra ball handling opportunity with Mike Conley (left hamstring tightness) sitting out, and he had a great connection with Rudy Gobert (19 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes). Ingles is still outside the top-150 in 9-cat rankings but keep an eye on him in case he can get some momentum.

  • Emmanuel Mudiay
    PG, Utah Jazz

    Emmanuel Mudiay scored 11 points with seven assists and two threes in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Mudiay had extra opportunity with Mike Conley (left hamstring tightness) sidelined. Mudiay can be streamed for assists when Mike Conley or Donovan Mitchell are out, but he should be left on the waiver wire when the Jazz are at full strength.
