Adrian and Neil break down the eight games from Monday night including another dominant night from Anthony Davis, James Harden, DeMar DeRozan and Giannis. Josh Hart has big game for the Lakers as they bounce…

Josh Hart scored seven points on 3-of-10 shooting (1-of-6 from deep) with five rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.
With Lonzo Ball suffering a not great looking ankle injury it opens a window for Hart to put up late-round value for the next few weeks. He's been hit or miss all season but give him a look if his stat set can help you.

Josh Hart came off the bench on Thursday and put up a big game with 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers.
Hart had a very nice game, going 3-of-6 from the field and committing just one turnover in 33 minutes. This is the sort of stuff that fantasy owners just haven't seen regularly enough since LeBron James went down, Hart's actually been worse over the last two weeks than he has been on the full season, where he's hanging onto top-150 value. It's a tough break for players who dropped him after the recent swoon, and we still think that he'll end up being worth the trouble while LeBron is out — though he's running out of time to make good on that. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started and had 13 points, two steals and three triples in 23 minutes.

Josh Hart was moved to the bench for Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and managed just two points on 1-of-1 shooting with four rebounds and two steals over 22 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Bulls.
Hart might be better when some distributors return as there is a ton of Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma right now, and in the case of the former he really gums the Lakers offense up. Hart can be dropped in 12-14 team formats.
January 12, 2019, 1:29 amJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart stayed incognito in Friday's 95-113 loss to the Jazz with not much to show in his 30 minutes on the floor, tallying a disappointing six points, five rebounds, one assist and one trey.
Hart is a drop in standard leagues right now for a hot FA and is a tough hold in some deeper formats. At this stage in the fantasy game, it's better to ride hot players than to stay patient and gutting it out through vicious shooting slumps.
January 10, 2019, 1:28 amJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart had a lackluster game against the Pistons on Wednesday, mustering just two points, seven rebounds and one block.
Hart has been productive recently, making tonight somewhat of a headscratcher. He's delivering 1.6 steals per game on defense over his last five games but is in a real shooting slump with .291 shooting from the field over that same span. He's still a hold while LeBron James is sidelined.
January 7, 2019, 11:05 pmJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart put up a big line against the Mavs on Monday with 14 points and 12 rebounds to go with a 3-pointer, six assists and five steals.
Hart came to play after struggling in the Lakers' loss to the Knicks on Friday. He's one of the best rebounding guards in the league and fills up the stat sheet when given the minutes, but with LeBron James nearing a return it'll mean he won't log 44 minutes like he did tonight.
January 5, 2019, 1:52 amJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart hit just 2-of-11 shots for six points, seven boards, four assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer over 33 minutes in Friday's loss to the Knicks.
Hart makes a few shots here and this line starts to look good, and regardless he's been running just fine and should be owned in standard formats right now and possibly when LeBron James returns, too.
January 3, 2019, 1:18 amJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart double-doubled with 13 points and 15 rebounds on 5-of-16 shooting in a loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.
He was 1-of-8 from deep and 2-of-4 from the line to go along with two assists and two defensive stats. Hart is a late-round guy who should have his value boosted while LeBron James is sidelined. He is worth owning in most formats even when James returns to action.
December 31, 2018, 12:01 amJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart scored 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting in 40 minutes as the Lakers got their revenge and beat the Kings on Sunday.
He added three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals to the box score. Lonzo Ball took a backseat in this game and only had 13 points with six assists on 6-of-14 shooting. Ball and Hart are both late-round values, but their values are boosted while LeBron James is sidelined with a groin injury.
December 29, 2018, 1:16 amJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart was ejected after 35 minutes of action in Friday's loss to the Clippers, and he finished with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting with two threes, six boards, three assists and three steals.
Hart got hit with a bad call late in the fourth with the game basically decided and both he and Luke Walton were fed up. As long as LeBron is out he's a good bet to post standard league numbers, and the Rajon Rondo news from earlier today helped significantly for the next month or so. Give him a look for at least a 50/50 shot at late-round value in that span.
December 28, 2018, 1:05 amJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block over 33 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Kings.
Hart got some extra breathing room with LeBron and Rajon Rondo out, but if you gambled on him in a four-game week you have to like your start. Owners should be willing to move on for a hot free agent but feel free to ride him until the wheels fall off.
December 27, 2018, 2:17 pmJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart will replace LeBron James in the starting lineup for Thursday's game.
Hart, along with Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram, has a fantastic opportunity to do his thing with both LeBron James (groin) and Rajon Rondo (finger) out. Hart likely is the biggest beneficiary of James' absence, while Ball will pick up most of the slack from Rondo's absence. Ingram will also get a lot more opportunities as a playmaker on the ball. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Lance Stephenson should pick up some extra playing time as well.

Josh Hart came off the bench for 29 minutes on Tuesday, scoring 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting with two threes, a steal and a block.
The garbage time factor can't be ignored here but it was Hart, not Brandon Ingram, who stepped into the vacuum left by LeBron James' injury. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored nine points in 26 minutes and Lance Stephenson dropped 11 quick ones with the scoreboard lopsided as well. We'll need to see how the rotation looks in a competitive game sans LeBron but if you're looking for a waiver target, Hart's your best bet.
December 18, 2018, 11:20 pmJosh Hart - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Josh Hart hit just 2-of-10 shots for six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one three over 34 minutes on Tuesday against the Nets.
Hart has had a handful of good games but he hasn't been able to recapture his early season form. With the Lakers getting healthy again, owners can move on for hot free agents.
