Player Notes

  • Paul George exits early after right leg injury
    Paul George had a solid line before exiting early as he contributed 18 points (9-for-17 FGs), seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in a 101-100 loss to Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

    Advice: PG exited this game with less than five minutes left after injuring his leg while going up for a rebound. Tyronn Lue said after the game that George is still being evaluated, so there isn't an official update from the team. It was an ugly injury, so there's a real chance that he remains sidelined for an extended period of time. Terance Mann should slide into the starting unit in his place, while they rely on Nicolas Batum and Eric Gordon to play more minutes off the bench. Kawhi Leonard will also become the true focal point of the offense, with everyone else needing to step up around him to make up for PGs' absence. 30 minutes ago

  • Kawhi Leonard puts up 21/6/5/2 line in loss to OKC
    Kawhi Leonard led the Clippers with 21 points (7-for-16 FGs), six rebounds, five assists, two steals and two triples against the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kawhi was put in the Dorture chamber on the final play of the game and failed to get a potential game-winning shot off. However, despite having his lowest scoring night since before the All-Star break, Leonard was able to provide solid value. If Paul George ends up missing time, Kawhi will be forced to take on a much larger load offensively. They only have two more back-to-backs this season, and their next one isn't until March 31st. For both reasons, Kawhi should be in for some big nights. 39 minutes ago
  • Russell Westbrook posts 15/8/2/2/1 line vs. OKC
    Russell Westbrook contributed a full line on Tuesday with 15 points (6-for-10 FGs), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block against the Thunder.

    Advice: After shooting below 40% from the floor in each of their last four games, Russ had one of his best shooting percentages since joining the Clippers. It wasn't enough for them to get a win, but Russ was able to contribute across the board for fantasy managers. If Paul George ends up missing an extended period of time, Westbrook will likely have an increased usage rate, for better or for worse. They have two more games this week, and they may have to lean on Russ more than ever. 44 minutes ago
  • Olivier Sarr starts second half vs. Clippers Tues.
    Olivier Sarr started the second half of Tuesday's matchup with the Clippers and contributed four points (1-for-4 FGs), six rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

    Advice: Sarr has only played a few games for the Thunder this season, but he ended up playing an important role for them in this game. Despite coming off the bench, he played 19 minutes in this game and ended up starting the second half in place of Jaylin Williams. Sarr isn't a player to pick up, but he's a player to keep an eye on in deep, deep leagues. Even if the Thunder are in contention for a playoff spot, Sarr could be a solid source of rebounds and blocks if he's able to string together more games with this many minutes. 52 minutes ago
  • Jalen Williams posts 20/8/3/1/1 line vs. Clippers
    Jalen Williams provided a solid line on Tuesday with 20 points (8-for-15 FGs), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers against the Clippers.

    Advice: After appearing to be human in their last game, JDub got back to providing unreal value for a rookie in their win over the Clippers. He is inside the top-75 for 9-cat leagues over the course of the season, which is second among behind Walker Kessler. Over the past two months, JDub has been inside the top-20, which is still second among rookies behind Kessler, but it truly speaks to how dominant both have been for fantasy managers. They still have three more games this week for JDub to dominate. 59 minutes ago
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander drops 31 in win over LAC
    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder with 31 points (12-for-25 FGs), seven rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in a 101-100 win over the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Per usual, SGA carried the offensive load for the Thunder in this game. He scored all six of Oklahoma City's points over the final three minutes of the game. The Thunder play a back-to-back on Thursday and Friday, and SGA has sat out at least one leg of their last two back-to-backs. However, Mark Daigneault said that they would be "open-minded" to SGA playing back-to-backs moving forward. There's certainly a chance that he plays in both games, which is great news for fantasy managers. Today, 1:02 am
  • Terence Davis pours in four triples off bench
    Terence Davis had a solid game on Tuesday with 12 points (4-for-9 FGs, all 3PTs) and four rebounds against Boston.

    Advice: With Kevin Huerter still sidelined, Davis was able to provide some much-needed shooting off the bench. In their first game without Huerter, Davis played 29 minutes off the bench and scored 21 points with five 3-pointers. In their last game, Davis only played five minutes. In this game, he was back in the rotation. His role has been inconsistent, which makes him frustrating to stream. If Huerter remains sidelined, he's a high-risk, high-reward streaming option.

  • Davion Mitchell puts up 13 points, 3 triples
    Davion Mitchell provided a boost off the bench with 13 points (5-for-8 FGs), two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers against the Celtics on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mitchell hasn’t been relevant in fantasy basketball for the majority of this season, but he was able to provide a huge offensive boost off the bench in this game. He’s only rostered in 5% of leagues because he hasn’t played a large enough role consistently. He's gotten seven starts this season, and he has averaged 9.6 points, 3.6 assists and 1.6 triples in those. If he gets the start with De'Aaron Fox out, he's a low-end streaming option. However, even if he was solid in this game, he belongs on the waiver wire. Today, 12:41 am
  • Domantas Sabonis posts 12th triple-double of year
    Domantas Sabonis recorded another triple-double on Tuesday with 16 points (7-for-12 FGs), 13 rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and six turnovers in a 132-109 loss to Boston.

    Advice: Sabonis recorded his 12th triple-double of the season in this game, including his fifth this month. Unfortunately, he also had one of his worst free throw shooting games of the season, as he shot 2-for-6 from the line. He's shot 76.1% from the free throw line this season, so he's not among the best in the league, but he's usually much better than he was in this game. With two more games this week, Sabonis will continue to provide excellent value across the board, as he has all season. Today, 12:37 am
