July 1, 2019, 4:33 pmJodie MeeksSG, Toronto Raptors
According to Brett Dawson of The Athletic, the Thunder are one of the teams that have shown interest in Jodie Meeks.
Meeks signed a 10-day with the Raptors and was picked up for the playoff run, though he was never a significant factor in the rotation despite some brief showings as a 9th man. He'll be a depth signing for any team in need of an insurance shooter.

November 19, 2019, 1:07 amJayson TatumSF, Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum was stellar in Boston's win over the Suns on Monday, finishing his night with 26 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal and three triples in just 27 minutes.
Tatum had been playing at a top-50 pace heading into this one, so this performance should likely bump him up a few spots. The real story in this one is that he managed this scoring output on 50 percent shooting (8-of-16 from the floor), which has been his biggest hinderance to better value on the season. If He is able to imrpove upon his below 40 percent average on the year he could become an easy early-round player.
November 19, 2019, 1:05 amAron BaynesC, Phoenix Suns
Aron Baynes was quiet as he faced the Celtics (former team) on Monday, posting a still-respectable line of nine points, six rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer and one steal.
There was no revenge-game narrative played out for Baynes tonight. This was a low-end line considering his body of work so far this season. Consider Baynes a sell-high candidate as his usage, minutes and production should drop considerably when Deandre Ayton (suspension) returns.
November 19, 2019, 1:00 amDevin BookerSG, Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker recorded a team-high 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting with one rebound, two 3s and four assists in Monday's loss to the Celtics.
Booker was arguably the lone bright spot for the Suns, who struggled overall as a team tonight. Only Kelly Oubre was able to join him in cracking double-figure scoring with 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting, six rebounds, one assist, one 3, one steal and one block. Both Booker and Oubre, along with Ricky Rubio, who was out tonight with back spasms, project to remain solid in value once Deandre Ayton is done serving his suspension.
November 19, 2019, 1:00 amJeff TeaguePG, Minnesota Timberwolves
Jeff Teague collected a double-double in Monday's win over the Jazz, but did so on poor shooting, finishing with 21 points (7-of-18 from the floor), 11 assists, four rebounds and a 3-pointer in 36 minutes.
Teague has been dishing the ball at a high rate since returning from injury, but has only produced at a top-130 rate despite the gaudy numbers. A big drag to his game right now is a mix of poor shooting from the field as well as an absence of defensive stats to accompany him. He's still a decent bet to compete for top-100 value, but perhaps it'd be wise to try and flip him while he's putting up misleading stat lines such as these.
November 19, 2019, 12:55 amRobert CovingtonSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Robert Covington was solid once again on Monday, finishing his night with 15 points, eight rebounds, an assist, two steals, a block and two triples in 33 minutes.
Covington's slow start to the year is very much in the rear-view mirror now as he has played himself into a second-round value through the month of November. Congratulations are in order if you were able to snag him during his buy-low window, and as long as health permits, he should continue to be a 9-cat stud all season long.
November 19, 2019, 12:52 amJevon CarterPG, Phoenix Suns
Jevon Carter drew the start for an injured Ricky Rubio (back spasms) on Monday and produced a well-rounded, albeit low-end line of thre points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one triple and two blocks in 24 minutes of action.
Carter has not made fantasy waves since the end of October, but is worth an add for streaming purposes while Rubio is on the shelf.
November 19, 2019, 12:49 amKarl-Anthony TownsC, Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns was his usual dominant self in Monday's win against the Jazz, finishing with 29 points (11-of-23 shooting), 13 rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and a career-high tying seven triples in 33 minutes.
Towns' progression as a 3-point shooter has been unbelievable this season, as he has now more than doubled his mark of 1.8 made per game last year (he's up to 3.9 after tonight's game). The added dimension has truly made him among the most feared offensive players in the league. Add that in with his already impeccable all-around game and you've got yourself one of the safest bets in all of fantasy hoops. He'll lead a lot of teams to championships this season.
November 19, 2019, 12:43 amAnthony DavisPF-C, Los Angeles Lakers
Anthony Davis (right shoulder soreness) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.
Davis' two performances since he sat last Wednesday have been a little underwhelming outside of his blocks (4.5 per-game). But even though Davis has been dealing with injuries all season, he's been putting up dominant stats regardless, so continue to ride him with confidence.
November 19, 2019, 12:41 amNassir LittleSF, Portland Trail Blazers
Nassir Little had his best game as a starter in Monday's 108-132 loss to the Rockets, scoring 11 points to go with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and two turnovers in 29 minutes.
Little went from not playing at all to all of a sudden being in the starting lineup, so it's been admirable to watch him attempt to learn on the fly. Though he isn't expected to start once he is able to suit up, the arrival of Carmelo Anthony is sure to cut into the rookie's playing time. He is not on the radar aside from 20-team settings.
November 19, 2019, 12:38 amMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley played relatively well on Monday, posting 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting, with six rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer.
It's not mind-blowing, but we'll take it. Slowly, but surely Conley appears to be adjusting to his new team, dropping solid games here and there after a forgettable start to 2019-20. Speaking of struggles, it was Donovan Mitchell who could not buy a bucket tonight, going 5-for-24 from the floor for 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two 3s.
