Kemba Walker made 8-of-22 from the floor and 10-of-14 from the line for 30 points, six boards, five dimes, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers, but the Hornets still fell to the Heat 91-95 on Saturday.
Walker did all he could to put the team on his back in this one, but they ultimately came up short because of a lack of a third punch on offense. The high-volume, low-percentage from the floor wasn’t great, but the boost to the free throw percentage softened the blow some. He has been a topic of trade rumors recently and owners will continue to watch and see what happens, but no matter where he goes he should continue to put up good fantasy numbers.

Nassir Little got his first career start on Wednesday and ended with seven points (3-for-10), five boards, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.
It's worth keeping an eye on Little if he continues to start and picks up his production. But for the moment, he hasn't done enough to warrant picking up outside of deep leagues.
November 14, 2019, 12:50 amFred VanVleetPG, Toronto Raptors
Fred Vanvleet had a monstrous line, ending with 30 points on 10-for-16 shooting, four rebounds, seven dimes, two steals, a block and sinking four from deep on Wednesday night.
VanVleet has been blowing his ADP out of the water this season. He is right on the cusp of top-25 production, and while he might not end the season there, he has the potential to put up big numbers with Kyle Lowry (fractured thumb) watching from the sidelines.
November 14, 2019, 12:42 amPascal SiakamPF, Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam led the Raptors in scoring with 36 points (15-for-28 shooting), along with six rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on Wednesday night.
Pascal Siakam continues to have huge games and proves that he was worth an early-round pick. He contributes across the board, and the injuries to the Raptors will only provide higher upside for Siakam.
November 14, 2019, 12:35 amNorman PowellSF, Toronto Raptors
Norman Powell couldn't find his shot, ending the night with two points on 0-for-6 shooting, seven rebounds and two blocks against Portland on Wednesday.
Powell got the start with Kyle Lowry out, but tonight just wasn't his night. That being said, he has provided decent out of position blocks recently, and should still be a valuable asset with Lowry out.
November 14, 2019, 12:30 amMarc GasolC, Toronto Raptors
Marc Gasol racked up four blocks to go along with nine points, five rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers on Wednesday.
Gasol has strung together a couple meaningful lines now and the four blocks help ease the disappointing start to the season. With Serge Ibaka sidelined by injury, Gasol has the opportunity to start working his way back to the top-100 value many were expecting.
November 14, 2019, 12:23 amRondae Hollis-JeffersonSF, Toronto Raptors
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had his best game of the season, putting up 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting, 11 boards, one assist, a block and a steal on Wedensday.
The Raptors have caught the injury bug and Hollis-Jefferson is making the most of his time. He could be a productive streamer if OG Anunoby continues to miss time.
November 13, 2019, 11:53 pmKarl-Anthony TownsC, Minnesota Timberwolves
Karl-Anthony Towns had another fantastic night, finishing with a line of 28, 11, 4 and three 3-pointers in a 129-114 win against the Spurs on Wednesday.
This was Towns' first game without a block this season, but made up for it with two steals to his name. He continues to dominate this season and is a top-5 player.
November 13, 2019, 11:45 pmAndrew WigginsSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Andrew Wiggins continued his tear on Wednesday night, putting up 30 points on 12-of-23 shooting, eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block.
Wiggins turned in another great game and is currently returning top-25 value. This screams sell-high opportunity as it's hard to imagine him finishing the season this high. However, if you want to ride this one out, it's hard to find fault with that either.
November 13, 2019, 11:38 pmRobert CovingtonSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Robert Covington didn't contribute much on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points, five boards, and a steal.
Covington is currently hovering around his ADP of a top-50 player, and while he had a quiet night, by his standards, he'll bounce back.
November 13, 2019, 11:30 pmJarrett CulverG-F, Minnesota Timberwolves
Jarrett Culver started again and contributed across the board with 12 points (6-of-10 shooting), four boards, three assists, a steal and two blocks on Wednesday.
It's good to see the field goal percentage trending the right way and the defensive stats were a nice addition. Culver isn't worth owning outside of deeper leagues, but could be an interesting steamer if Jeff Teague goes down again.
