Kyle Anderson scored an efficient 10 points with 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes as a starter in Tuesday’s win over the Cavaliers.
Anderson has been quietly posting standard league value all season long given Kawhi Leonard’s injury woes. Tonight was no exception as he posted a double-double with plenty of money counting stats. Anderson’s stat set is rich, and a definitive timeline for Kawhi is elusive at the moment, so Anderson is fine to own as a back end option until further notice. Speaking of players that benefit from the absence of Kawhi, Davis Bertans also started tonight and posted a solid line (30 minutes, 13 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal). Pau Gasol (wrist) was also out tonight, leaving the door open for the young Latvian to soak up extra minutes. Bertans will probably get extra run for as long as Gasol remains sidelined, but isn’t worth more than a look as a three point streaming option outside of deep leagues.
