Eric Gordon caught fire from downtown on Thursday as he knocked down seven triples en route to his 30-point game against the Timberwolves.
His move back to the bench with the return to action of James Harden did not appear to faze the reigning Sixth Man of the Year. This was more than just him shooting the lights out of his opponents. Gordon put in work across the board, adding three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block. Despite the addition of Chris Paul to the team this season, Eric Gordon has managed to remain a steady source of points and threes for his owners.
November 12, 2019, 1:16 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.
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, 1:14 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.
November 12, 2019, 1:07 amBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
Bojan Bogdanovic scored 12 points on 4-of-15 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on Monday.
Bogdanovic was signed to the Jazz to bring his outside scoring ability and he hasn't disappointed. He's shooting .455 from deep on a career-high 6.9 attempts per game. He should continue to be a strong source of triples as the Jazz love his shooting.
November 12, 2019, 1:06 amJoe InglesSF, Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles scored 11 points on 3-of-8 shooting while handing out seven dimes to go with his three boards, one steal and one 3-pointer.
Ingles has had a tough time shooting the ball and the minutes are down from last season, but he's still got some fringe value with 1.4 3s, 3.3 assists and 0.8 steals. Those numbers could climb, especially the shooting, but the top-80 Ingles is going to be much harder to reach this year.
November 12, 2019, 1:05 amDewayne DedmonC, Sacramento Kings
Dewayne Dedmon (right knee sprain) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.
Dedmon has been passed up by Richaun Holmes and now Harry Giles has returned, so he's definitely droppable in standard leagues.
November 12, 2019, 1:01 amHassan WhitesideC, Portland Trail Blazers
Hassan Whiteside (right foot sprain) is listed as probable for Tuesday vs. the Kings.
While Whiteside may still not be totally healthy, he had an excellent game on Sunday while playing with the foot sprain. Deploy him as you normally would.
November 12, 2019, 12:57 amRodney HoodSG, Portland Trail Blazers
Rodney Hood (back spasms) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Kings.
Hood missed Sunday's game, but should be on the floor on Tuesday night. He's been getting big minutes this season, but he's mainly a threes and free throw percentage streamer.
