• Houston forward Sam Dekkar scored 17 points in 29 minutes of action on Friday night.

    Dekkar is coming off an injury plagued season last year so it seems like he has a lot to prove. He shot 6-of-8 from the field tonight adding five three-pointers and four assists to round out his line. Dekkar has played well this summer but will be hard pressed to find minutes playing behind Trevor Ariza and Corey Brewer.

  • Aron Baynes
    C, Phoenix Suns

    Aron Baynes is doubtful to face the Spurs on Monday as he is dealing with left hip soreness.

    As if you needed any further validation that Aron Baynes' role with the Suns has vanished. With the return of Deandre Ayton, Baynes was going to have a hard time maintaining standard league value, but the drop off has been steep, and perhaps this new injury is part of the problem. Baynes has seen under 15 minutes in three straight games and is an afterthought for standard leagues at this point.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre Jr. is probable to face the Spurs on Monday as he works his way through concussion protocol.

    It sounds like Oubre has a fair shot to return on Monday but check back to be sure. His return will reduce Mikal Bridges' role, although Bridges will still be in line for regular minutes. Before sustaining the injury Oubre was playing splendidly, do not hesitate to have him in your lineup on Monday once he gets the go-ahead.

  • CJ McCollum
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    C.J. McCollum (left ankle sprain) ruled out for Monday's tilt vs. the Warriors.

    McCollum will miss his second game due to the injury. He was spotted without a limp on Saturday so there is reason to hope this is a short term problem. Anfernee Simmons makes for a solid play in standard leagues right now, and the main Blazers for fantasy purposes, Damian Lillard, Carmelo Anthony and Hassan Whiteside, will get boosts in value as well.

  • Jeremy Lamb
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Jeremy Lamb (bruised left hip) is available to play during Sunday's game versus the Nuggets.

    The Pacers will have their starting lineup healthy and ready to go. Lamb's value is limited with Victor Oladipo's eventually return.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge
    PF, San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge posts 21 points, four rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers on 8-of-15 shooting.

    Aldridge didn't get us the rebounds we would like, but he chipped in everywhere else. DeMar DeRozan has been on a tear and Aldridge will continue to play second fiddle while he is on a heater.

  • DeMar DeRozan
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan narrowly missed a triple-double with 20 points, nine rebounds and nine assist during Sunday's win over the Heat.

    DeRozan has been on a tear as of late and taking on more of a facilitator role handling the ball and doing so without many turnovers. This is a great sell-high opportunity if you could net someone inside of the top-30 for him.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic scored 19 points to go along with five rebounds and two assists on 7-of-13 shooting in Sunday's loss to the Spurs.

    Drag has been returning standard league value over the past few weeks, but barring a trade to another team that looks to be his ceiling.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler struggled to get much going during Sunday's loss to the Spurs going 5-of-14 from the field for 16 points, five rebounds and six assists.

    Butler has been struggling over the last three games and the shot attempts have been done. He'll look to bounce back during tomorrow's game versus the Kings.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo exploded for 21 points, 16 rebounds, six assists and two steals on 8-of-13 shooting during Sunday's 107-102 loss versus the Spurs.

    While most of the Heat's offense was sputtering, Adebayo was getting it done in all facets. Owners expected the big rebounding and scoring numbers, but his assist totals continue to be the cherry on top of his fantasy profile.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (right thumb sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Lakers.

    Brown's thumb injury does not appear to be anything long-term and his return this week at some point is expected.
