• The Jazz and unrestricted free agent Joe Johnson have agreed to a two-year, $22 million deal.

    The Jazz have really been looking to bolster their wing corps with veteran talent and even though they’re sort of set, a trade of their excess guards might just yield an optimal balance of players.  Johnson has major limitations at this stage of his career.  But if you give him the ball in a good spot he’s bound to do good things with it.  He can also provide a good example of what it takes to stick in the league for 15 years.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal had 29 points, one rebound, six assists, and one steal on Monday against the Pistons.

    He made just 2-of-7 from behind the arc, but otherwise this was a solid game for Beal. The only real blemish was the five turnovers. The win broke a five-game losing streak for the Wizards.

  • Svi Mykhailiuk
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk's shot abandoned him on Monday and he finished the game with 10 points and 2 triples on 4-of-13 shooting.

    The popular waiver wire add was due for a bad game after going over 20 points in each of his last two games. The good news is that he still made it to the mid-20s in minutes despite the off night and there aren't many high-efficiency three-point specialists. He's a hold while Kennard is out, particularly if your team needs three-point shooting.

  • Ian Mahinmi
    C, Washington Wizards

    Ian Mahinmi ended Monday's game against the Pistons with 21 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, and three blocks in 23 minutes of action.

    Mahinmi shot 9-of-10 from the field as well. It was easily his best game since December 30 when he scored 25 points against the Heat. Mahinmi is hardly a reliable fantasy player, but he's still capable of a big game every now and then even with Thomas Bryant in the fold.

  • Tony Snell
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Tony Snell's shot fell on Monday to the tune of 16 points and four threes.

    The do-nothing all-star shot an efficient 56% from the field in 29 minutes. Coach Dwayne Casey refuses to commit to player development and his players refuse to win basketball games, so this team is currently in basketball purgatory at the organizational level. Don't pay too much attention to this line, as Snell is just as likely to come back and post a 0-0-0-0-0 line in the next one.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond lost a tooth when Thomas Bryant elbowed him in the face on Monday but posted 18 points (7-of-11 shooting), 16 rebounds, four steals and two blocks.

    Drummond insisted that he was fine after the game. There's a misconception that Drummond's heart isn't in it as trade rumors continue to swirl, but you wouldn't know it from looking at his recent statlines. He's as solid a top-20 fantasy option as there is. Don't get bogged down in hypotheticals when assessing the value of your stud big man. Enjoy the ride with the durable Drummond and we can reassess his value if and when a trade involving him happens.

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose scored 21 points (8-of-21 shooting) with four rebounds and two steals.

    You can really ask for much more out of Rose, who's been a top-85 asset all season as the unexpected last man standing in the Detroit backcourt. Rose, or "Old Kendrick Nunn" as we like to call him, will continue to pour in points with nary a stat elsewhere, but tonight's modest peripherals were a nice touch. He's fine to roster, but rest-of-season value may not be guaranteed. Look to sell.

  • Adam Mokoka
    G, Chicago Bulls

    Adam Mokoka will be active for the Bulls on Monday against the Bucks.

    Mokoka has averaged 9.5 points and 5.7 points for the Windy City Bulls of the G League. He's just a depth player for now.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left hamstring) will play on Monday.

    Redick was already considered probable, so this is not surprising. He is shooting a stratospheric 46.5 percent from long range and has averaged 15.8 points per contest. That includes 3.3 made threes per game.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Derrick Favors has also been ruled out, making Jaxson Hayes a valuable short-term play. Okafor has now missed a week of action, so this seems to be a nagging issue for him.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Favors is coming off two strong games but is unable to play. Jaxson Hayes will fill in for the big man. He's a solid play in daily leagues considering that Jahlil Okafor is also out.
