  • Brandon Ingram records first career triple-double
    Brandon Ingram tallied 30 points (10-of-23 FGs, 9-of-9 FTs), 11 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes during Thursday's 115-96 win over the Hornets. 

    Advice: Ingram and the Pelicans got off to a hot start, scoring 37 points in the first quarter, but they weren't able to put Charlotte away for good until the fourth quarter. Ultimately, he would finish with the first triple-double of his NBA career. Having cracked the top-100 in 9-cat value recently, Ingram has been a top-50 player over the last two weeks. Since returning from a sprained ankle that sidelined him for two games, BI has scored 22 points or more in each of his last five games, tallying 30 or more in three of them. New Orleans now heads west, beginning its four-game road trip against the Clippers on Saturday. Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Won't play Friday
    Middleton (knee) has been ruled out of Friday's contest against the Jazz.

    Advice: Middleton was a late addition to the injury report, and he ultimately won't play in the first leg of the Bucks' back-to-back. With Middleton unavailable, expect Pat Connaughton to slide into the starting lineup and see an uptick in minutes. Middleton's next chance to return to the court will be Saturday against the Nuggets. Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Paolo Banchero records 21/6/4/2/2 line vs. Knicks
    Paolo Banchero shot 7-of-17 from the field and 5-of-6 from the foul line in Thursday's 111-106 win over the Knicks, scoring 21 points with six rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks, and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. 

    Advice: Banchero led six Magic double-digit scores with his 21 points, and he recorded a full stat line in the process. While there has been some discussion regarding Oklahoma City's Jalen Williams and the Rookie of the Year award, Banchero is still regarded by many as the odds-on favorite to win the honor. Ranked just inside the top 200 in 9-cat value for the season, Banchero's game has proven to be better suited for points leagues instead of category leagues. He and the Magic will finish out Week 22 with a home game against the Nets on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Franz Wagner (left ankle) will not return Thursday
    Franz Wagner has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Knicks with a sprained left ankle. 

    Advice: Wagner suffered the injury during the third quarter, with the team trainer taking him back to the locker room shortly thereafter. He's since been ruled out for the remainder of the game. Should Wagner have to miss time beyond Thursday with the Magic hosting the Nets on Sunday, Cole Anthony and Caleb Houstan would pick up additional minutes. Yesterday, 9:15 pm

  • Kelly Oubre (shoulder) will not return Thursday
    Kelly Oubre (left shoulder strain) has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Pelicans. 

    Advice: Both of Charlotte's starting guards were injured during the first half. While Terry Rozier (foot) is doubtful to return Thursday night, Oubre has already been ruled out. And with the Hornets careening toward the draft lottery, there's little need for the Hornets to rush Oubre back. Bryce McGowens and Svi Mykhailiuk are two players whose minutes will be boosted by Oubre's premature exit. Yesterday, 8:59 pm
  • LAC starting Russ, Gordon, Kawhi, Morris, Zubac
    Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris, and Ivica Zubac will start Thursday's game against the Thunder. 

    Advice: With Paul George (knee) out for 2-3 weeks, the Clippers had a void to fill in the starting lineup. Gordon receives the nod and can be an effective pickup for managers needing points and 3-pointers. Terance Mann's fantasy value will also be boosted by George's absence, as his minutes will increase despite coming off the bench. Yesterday, 8:54 pm
  • Leading scorer in balanced outing
    Banchero notched 21 points (7-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two steals across 34 minutes during Thursday's 111-106 win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Banchero paced Orlando in scoring, shots made and blocks while posting a team-high-tying steals total in a balanced performance that led to a win over New York. Banchero has surpassed the 20-point mark 37 times this season, including in two of his last three outings. Yesterday, 7:13 pm
  • Leads from deep in 25-point outing
    Grimes accumulated 25 points (10-18 FG, 5-10 3Pt), five rebounds, six assists and three steals across 38 minutes during Thursday's 111-106 loss to the Magic.

    Advice: Grimes led the team in threes made while finishing with a team-high-tying point total in a losing effort Thursday against Orlando. Grimes has tallied at least 20 points with five or more threes five times this season, including in two straight contests. Yesterday, 7:12 pm
  • Nassir Little (concussion) questionable Friday
    Nassir Little (concussion protocols) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bulls. 

    Advice: Little was initially listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Jazz before being held out. And with Portland well off the pace for a play-in tournament spot at this point in the season, it would not be surprising if Little was held out. Shaedon Sharpe, who was a starter on Wednesday, is in line for a boost in value whether Little plays or not. Yesterday, 7:04 pm
