NBA $20K Monday Night Baller [$4K to 1st] starts in
  • Big minutes in return
    James ended with 19 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), eight rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes during Sunday's 118-108 loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: While he wasn't immediately inserted back into the starting lineup after missing the prior 13 games due to a foot injury, James still saw a big workload off the bench as his team tries to stay in the playoff picture. The future Hall of Famer will get a couple days to rest before the Lakers face the Bulls again, this time back in Chicago on Wednesday, and he'll likely move into the starting five then. Today, 7:03 pm
  • Double-double against Lakers
    DeRozan posted 17 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, 10 assists and one block across 36 minutes during Sunday's 118-108 victory over the Lakers.

    Advice: After missing Friday's game due to a minor quad strain, DeRozan was back in action and recorded his third double-double in his last five games. The veteran forward has been a rock for the Bulls during their playoff push, and over 10 healthy games in March he's averaging 26.7 points, 6.1 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.4 threes. Today, 6:59 pm
  • Solid production in return to bench
    Mamukelashvili accumulated 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds and three assists over 22 minutes during Sunday's 137-93 loss to Boston.

    Advice: Mamukelashvili returned to the bench due to Zach Collins returning to the starting lineup, leading the Spurs' second unit in scoring and rebounds while finishing as one of four players in double figures in scoring Sunday. Mamukelashvili has tallied at least 10 points and five boards five times this season, including in four straight games. Today, 6:55 pm
  • Top scorer and rebounder in return
    Collins totaled 21 points (8-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes during Sunday's 137-93 loss to the Celtics.

    Advice: Collins returned to the starting lineup after missing Friday's game with a biceps injury while leading the Spurs in scoring and rebounds en route to a near double-double in a losing effort. Collins has surpassed the 20-point mark five times this year. Today, 6:54 pm
  • Joel Embiid (calf) questionable Monday vs. Nuggets
    Joel Embiid (right calf tightness) is questionable for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

    Advice: Embiid was also questionable for Saturday's game against the Suns, ultimately being cleared to the in the second game of Philadelphia's back-to-back. Fantasy managers should assume that he'll be available for Monday's showdown with fellow MVP candidate Nikola Jokic. Should Embiid sit, Paul Reed would be the next man up in the middle. Today, 6:47 pm
  • Leading scorer in Sunday's win
    Hayward had a team-high 22 points (8-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds and four assists over 32 minutes during Sunday's 110-104 win over the Mavericks.

    Advice: After a tough stretch earlier in March, Hayward has popped for more than 20 points in three of the last four games, with the Hornets winning all three of them. The veteran forward's performance Sunday came with both Kelly Oubre (shoulder) and Terry Rozier (foot) in street clothes though, and Hayward will likely return to his complementary role in the offense once they get healthy. Today, 6:29 pm
  • Double-double against Mavs
    Washington posted 21 points (9-22 FG, 3-8 3Pt), 12 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 31 minutes during Sunday's 110-104 victory over the Mavericks.

    Advice: It's his first double-double in over a month, and his third of the season. Washington has found some consistency lately, scoring in double digits in nine of the last 10 games and averaging 16.8 points, 5.7 boards, 2.1 assists, 1.9 threes, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 steals over that stretch. Today, 6:25 pm
  • LeBron James plays 30 minutes in return to action
    LeBron James shot 6-of-11 from the field and 7-of-8 from the foul line in Sunday's 118-108 loss to the Bulls, scoring 19 points with eight rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes. 

    Advice: While James shot better than 50% from the field on the day, he was also responsible for a team-worst five turnovers (tied with Austin Reaves). James came off the bench for just the second time in his career, with Troy Brown Jr. remaining in the starting lineup. Brown played well, finishing with 18 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks, and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes. But that isn't going to be enough to keep him in the starting lineup moving forward. The Lakers don't play again until Wednesday in Chicago, which should be enough time to get LeBron back into the swing of things. Today, 6:22 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan dishes out 10 assists in road win
    DeMar DeRozan accounted for 17 points (7-of-13 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), six rebounds, 10 assists, one block, and two 3-pointers in Sunday's 118-108 win over the Lakers, playing 36 minutes. 

    Advice: DeRozan finished Sunday's win with his sixth double-double of the season and second in his last four appearances. Just as important was his playing 36 minutes without any issues after sitting out Friday's win over Portland with a quad contusion. Hopefully, this is a sign that DeRozan will be available for Monday's game against the Clippers. His return dropped Patrick Williams to the bench, with P-Will accounting for seven points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes. Should something change and the Bulls decide to rest DeRozan, Williams would be the next man up. Today, 6:16 pm
