J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) has been downgraded to out for Thursday’s matchup vs. the Jazz.
Josh Hart, E’Twaun Moore and Nicolò Melli all have a chance for additional opportunity with Redick ruled out for the third straight time. Hart and Moore could even be viewed as low-cost DFS plays as they both have seen close to 30 minutes per game in the last two games that Redick has missed.

Josh Hart was effective for the Pelicans on Friday, providing them with 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting, 10 rebounds, three dimes and three assists.
Hart has been slow to provide impactful value prior to tonight. Still, Hart is a player of interest in 14-teamers or deeper for his ability to contribute across many categories.

Jrue Holiday (left elbow tricep strain) will not take the floor against the Knicks on Friday.
Josh Hart, J.J. Redick and Lonzo Ball will all see additional minutes with Holiday ruled out for the third consecutive time. Nickeil Alexander-Walker could also see additional minutes off the bench but is not worth a look in fantasy leagues at this time.

Jrue Holiday (elbow contusion) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.
With Holiday out again, Josh Hart is looking at another start while J.J. Redick will take on a more significant role. Each is worth a look in DFS, and Hart is a streaming option with a great matchup on tap.

Josh Hart started on Monday and scored eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, one assist and two triples.
Hart strated, but E'Twaun Moore (12 points, seven rebounds, one assist and two steals) outplayed him. Even with the starting gig, it's a bit too hard to trust Hart in standard leagues and with Zion Williamson nearing a return, Hart can be left on the wire.

Jrue Holiday (left elbow contusion) has been ruled out of Monday's game.
Holiday was injured on Saturday. Josh Hart should see more court time while he remains out. Holiday can fill the stat sheet in a variety of ways and he shouldn't miss much more time.

Jrue Holiday (elbow) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Jazz.
Holiday got a little banged up during Saturday's game versus the King and if he's forced to sit out Josh Hart and J.J. Redick will both see extended run.

Josh Hart scored 16 points off the bench on Saturday with five rebounds, two steals, one block and two threes in 27 minutes.
Hart bounced back on Saturday after failing to score double digits in the two games prior. Hart is inconsistent but produces late-round value as a player who can contribute in multiple categories.

Josh Hart scored 16 points off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets, hitting 5-of-10 shots (including four threes) with nine rebounds in 30 minutes.
It's an odd line and Hart has been hit or miss for a while now. When on the floor he has been a late-round guy on the season and he's probably going to have some pretty wild swings this year.
December 18, 2019, 10:33 pmLonzo BallPG, New Orleans Pelicans
Lonzo Ball ended up coming off the bench on Wednesday night, playing for 21 minutes and collecting 10 points, six rebounds, six assists and four turnovers.
There was some uncertainty on whether Ball was going to suit up for this game, which might explain the lack of minutes. But he ended up taking a back seat to Josh Hart who saw 30 minutes of action and ended with 11 points, six boards and two assists. Ball has been tough to trust to provide consistent value and his minutes is going to be a situation to monitor moving forward.
December 18, 2019, 6:57 pmLonzo BallPG, New Orleans Pelicans
Lonzo Ball is a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest vs. the Wolves as he nurses a bruised right hip.
If Ball ends up missing this contest, there will be more opportunity for Josh Hart, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Nicolò Melli. Hart has the best opportunity to be valuable for the rest of the season in standard leagues as he has produced top 110/98 per-game value in 8/9-cat leagues.

JJ Redick (left groin soreness) will take the floor on Wednesday against the Wolves.
Redick will return on Wednesday after a one-game absence. Josh Hart will see his minutes decrease from the 40-minute mark he saw in the last game while Nicolò Melli and Nickeil Alexander-Walker could see their minutes evaporate.
