The Lakers will not bring back Nigel Hayes after his 10-day contract has expired, according to Tania Ganguli.
Hayes will likely head to the G-league after appearing in only two games for the laker and totaling 11 minutes.
November 12, 2019, 1:27 amMarc GasolC, Toronto Raptors
Marc Gasol showed some signs of life on Monday, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting while adding five rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and two triples.
Gasol has been atrocious to own this season with averages of 26.8 minutes, 6.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.2 steals and 0.3 blocks on .345 shooting. He came in late in the fourth quarter and made some huge plays to keep the Raptors in it and with the Raptors hobbled, it gives Gasol some more room to get into a rhythm.
November 12, 2019, 1:25 amNorman PowellSF, Toronto Raptors
Norman Powell logged 37 minutes against the Clippers on Monday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assist, a block and a 3-pointer.
Powell logged a ton of minutes and should continue to do so with Kyle Lowry (fractured thumb) sidelined. Late in the fourth quarter, Powell slipped on a wet spot on the court, but it looks like he avoided an injury as he closed out the game. He's a standard-league pickup in all formats until then.
November 12, 2019, 1:23 amOG AnunobySF, Toronto Raptors
OG Anunoby scored zero points with an assist before exiting Monday's game early with an eye injury.
He was inadvertently poked in the eye by Kawhi Leonard and had to leave due to some bleeding. It's unclear how much time he'll miss, but we saw Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (29 minutes, nine points, nine rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block) pick up the bulk of the minutes. He's worth a short-term stream and we'll see how serious Anunoby's injury is soon.
November 12, 2019, 1:21 amDraymond GreenPF, Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green scored four points with seven rebounds and four assists before getting ejected in Monday's game against the Jazz.
After missing five games with a sprained index finger, this wasn't exactly the return owners were anticipating. Green went 2-for-7 from the floor and missed all four his 3-point attempts before getting ejected. He argued with a ref for a foul call and christened Chase Center's first ejection with his name. The season-long outlook for Green is a lot more muddy now that the Warriors should be shifting into tank mode later in the year.
November 12, 2019, 1:19 amD'Angelo RussellPG, Golden State Warriors
D'Angelo Russell was explosive on offense again in Monday's 108-122 loss to the Jazz, pouring in 33 points on 13-of-25 shooting while adding two rebounds, eight assists, a steal and five 3-pointers.
Russell has the ultimate green light to fire away and he was converting on some beautiful plays tonight. The only thing preventing him from reaching early-round value would be an injury as the Warriors need Russell to score 30 on a nightly basis for a chance to win any games this year.
November 12, 2019, 1:17 amWillie Cauley-SteinC, Golden State Warriors
Willie Cauley-Stein scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting to go with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block on Monday.
Cauley-Stein is by no means a great NBA player, but the Warriors are going to have to play either him, or Marquese Chriss (17 minutes, 11 points, six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer) so either way it's a loss. It'll be too hard to trust WCS to produce nightly and we're not going to bat an eye towards Chriss unless something major breaks.
November 12, 2019, 1:14 amEric PaschallPF, Golden State Warriors
Eric Paschall scored eight points on 4-of-10 shooting to go with six rebounds and two steals on Monday.
Paschall came off the bench, but logged 30 minutes partly due to Draymond Green being ejected. He's still worth hanging onto as the Warriors are desperate for any source of production and Paschall is the most talented player from the Warriors' young talent poo,l.
November 12, 2019, 1:14 amDonovan MitchellSG, Utah Jazz
Donovan Mitchell continues to be a sharpshooter from beyond the arc, nailing five 3-pointers on his way to 23 points with eight rebounds and six assists on Monday.
He didn't record any defensive stats, but the Don is now shooting .429 from deep and .488 from the floor this season. The main thing holding him back from a top-25 finish was his efficiency and the spacing the Jazz have added in the offseason have opened up new doors for Mitchell to explore his ceiling.
November 12, 2019, 1:13 amRudy GobertC, Utah Jazz
Rudy Gobert had a big game in Utah's 122-108 win over the Warriors on Monday with 25 points and 14 rebounds to go with an assist, a steal and two blocks.
This is Gobert's fifth consecutive double-digit rebounding game and over that stretch he's averaging 12.3 points, 15.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks on .583 shooting. The 11-for-12 mark is a huge boost for owners, but in typical fashion he hurt you at the line, going 3-for-9 on his free throws.
November 12, 2019, 1:10 amMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley had a good scoring night on Monday, dropping 22 points on 6-of-11 shooting while adding a rebound, seven assists and five 3-pointers.
Conley is too talented to slump for long and if you couldn't fetch him at his all-time low price earlier this year, it's unlikely that you'll be able to anytime soon.
