July 8, 2019, 5:44 pmHamidou DialloSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Hamidou Diallo finished with 14 points, four rebounds, three steals, one block and one triple on 6-of-12 shooting in 26 minutes vs. the 76ers on Monday.
Diallo only knocked down one of his four 3-point attempts and his shot continues to need improvement. With so much buzz surrounding the Thunder's roster and Jerami Grant's trade, Diallo might be in line for a larger role next season.
November 12, 2019, 8:37 amLuke KennardSG, Detroit Pistons
Luke Kennard kept it rolling in a loss to the Wolves on Monday, scoring 25 points (8-for-17 FGs, 5-for-5 FTs) and adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and four treys in 40 minutes.
Kennard has now scored at least 24 points in four of his last five games. Some of that success can be attributed to Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose and Reggie Jackson missing the first four of those games. But this Griffin and Rose were back for this game, so it's nice to see Kennard keep it up. He probably won't continue to put up sixth-round value as the Pistons get healthier, but he's certainly worth keeping around.
November 12, 2019, 8:27 amLandry ShametSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Clippers guard Landry Shamet will undergo an MRI on his sprained left ankle on Tuesday morning in order to determine the severity of his injury.
Shamet left the game on Monday after suffering the non-contact injury. It didn’t look good and it’s safe to assume that he will miss some time, so managers should prepare accordingly. The Clippers expect to get Paul George back as soon as this week and his return will help cover for Shamet’s potential loss. In the meantime, Rodney McGruger, Terrence Mann and Jerome Robinson will get the extra minutes but no one deserves serious consideration unless in deeper leagues.

November 12, 2019, 1:40 amLou WilliamsSG, Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Williams kept his foot on the gast with 21 points on 7-of-15 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists, a steal and two triples against the Raptors on Monday.
Williams played 36 minutes and was struggling to start this one, but finished strong. He's still a prime sell-high guy, especially with Paul George (shoulder) returning this week.
November 12, 2019, 1:40 amKawhi LeonardSF, Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard couldn't get his shot to fall in Monday's 98-88 win over the Raptors, scoring 12 points on 2-of-11 shooting while adding 11 rebounds, nine assists and three blocks.
Leonard went 0-for-4 from deep and didn't make his second field goal until midway into the fourth quarter. The Raptors sent traps and doubles at Leonard all night and he made the right play, passing out to open teammates which is how he was so close to a triple-double. Leonard has evolved as a playmaker and is evidenced by him averaging a career-high 5.4 assists this season.
November 12, 2019, 1:37 amMontrezl HarrellPF, Los Angeles Clippers
Montrezl Harrell scored 14 points with 11 rebounds while adding two assists, two steals and three blocks on Monday.
Harell shot 7-for-15 from the floor which is actually a bit low for his standards and missed both free throws, but the added defensive stats make tonight a great one for him.
November 12, 2019, 1:36 amJaMychal GreenPF, Los Angeles Clippers
JaMychal Green scored 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting and added 12 rebounds, one assist and a block to his line on Monday.
Green played 24 minutes off the bench and had his usual rebounding numbers, but went 0-for-5 from deep. In contrast, Patrick Patterson logged 15 minutes and went 4-for-8 from deep. Both players are too hard to own, especially with Paul George (shoulder) likely to return this week
November 12, 2019, 1:33 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 Anunoby will see an eye doctor on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury.

November 12, 2019, 1:33 amChris BoucherPF, Toronto Raptors
Chris Boucher had another solid outing on Monday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting while adding six rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers.
Boucher played well in his 22 minutes off the bench, but he still made some crucial mistakes which led the Marc Gasol closing out the game over him. He's worth an add while Serge Ibaka (sprained ankle) is sidelined, but he's just a short-term option.
November 12, 2019, 1:33 amPascal SiakamPF, Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam was held in check in Monday's 88-98 loss to the Clippers with 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting while adding 10 rebounds, six assists, a block and a 3-pointer.
Siakam was on a roll prior to this game and logged 44 minutes on the second night of a back-to-back. He missed some layups that are usually automatic for him, but the fatigue was obviously a factor as he didn't have the same lift as yesterday. He still contributed across the board and should be much better against the Blazers on Wednesday.
November 12, 2019, 1:29 amFred VanVleetPG, Toronto Raptors
Fred VanVleet logged a whopping 45 minutes on Monday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-20 shooting to go with two rebounds, eight assists, three steals and a 3-pointer.
VanVleet only sat down for three minutes on a second night of a back-to-back and is being relied on heavily as the Raptors' secondary scorer. He should continue to see a ton of usage and isn't really a sell-high candidate as he was producing top-90 value before Kyle Lowry (fractured thumb) went down.
