• Tyson Chandler (back) is expected to play on Wednesday against the Bucks.

    Chandler is listed in the projected lineups by beat writer Paul Coro and he always has a good awareness of what is going on.  Mirza Teletovic (illness) is questionable but it sounds like Earl Watson expects him to play, saying that Teletovic never misses a chance to score.

  • Danilo Gallinari
    SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

    After missing a game for rest purposes, Danilo Gallinari returned to action on Monday and helped power the Thunder to victory over the Rockets with 25 points on 7-of-19 shooting from the field and 7-of-7 from the line.

    Gallo was pumped as he knocked down four 3s and hauled in 13 rebounds with one steal in 35 minutes. The minutes are a good sign and his return-performance made up for his maintenance rest day. He's going to be a steady top-50 play as long as he stays healthy moving forward.

  • Thaddeus Young
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Thaddeus Young stuff the box score with 14 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes off the bench in a loss to the Bucks on Monday.

    Young has a good chance to get some increased minutes with Chicago's top two centers out. He's a smart streaming option if you're looking for a little bit of everything except free throw percentage.

  • Larry Nance Jr.
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. logged 28 minutes in Monday's loss to the Knicks and was able to contribute 12 points, 10 rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal on 5-of-9 shooting.

    Nance has not had a chance to really pop this season. Yet. He remains an intriguing stash in the event that Kevin Love and/or Tristan Thompson get shipped off on or before the trade deadline. Do not forget that Nance was a top-50 play when he got starter's minutes in 2018-19.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton was solid in his 28 minutes in Monday's 106-86 win over the Cavs, chipping in nine points on 4-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, eight dimes, one steal and two blocks.

    Payton has run away with the starting PG job and the lion's share of the minutes and has not looked back. He's a steady and reliable source of assists and steals. His shooting efficiency is a bit suspect and his 8.5 points per game are still more than two shy of his career averages. That said, you can surely do worse on the wire.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain, illness) struggled to get his shots to fall on Monday as he hit just 2-of-11 from the floor, missing all seven of his 3-point attempts, on his way to eight points and eight rebounds in 31 minutes vs. the Bucks.

    Markkanen's up and down (mostly down) season continues. He has the proven ability to provide top-50 value, but Markkanen has struggled with consistency all season. His points and rebounds are down significantly from last season. Hold onto him or look to buy low if you're up for taking a risk.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. (concussion protocol) is available on Monday vs. the Spurs.

    It looks like Oubre will return from a two-game absence, and with Cameron Johnson missing tonight's game, there shouldn't be too much of a shakeup on the wings.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson (right quad contusion) won't play on Monday against the Spurs.

    This will be Johnson's second-straight missed game. His minutes had crept into the twenties, but with Kelly Oubre Jr. (concussion protocol) back tonight, there shouldn't be a void of minutes to fill for Johnson replacements.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes (left hip soreness) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Spurs.

    Baynes' minutes have been trending down, so there isn't much for the Suns to replace. Dario Saric could see some increased minutes along with the rest of the forwards as the minutes trickle down.

  • Tristan Thompson
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson had 13 points, 22 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in Monday's loss to the Knicks.

    Thompson dominated the boards, but it wasn't enough to save the Cavs. It was still an impressive day for someone who came into the game averaging 10.4 rebounds.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love ended Monday's game against the Knicks with 12 points, nine rebounds, one assist, and one steal.

    The Cavs were blown out by New York and Love's 4-for-14 shooting line didn't help. He's still a very valuable player overall.
