  • Rudy Gay provides spark vs POR on Monday
    Rudy Gay notched 14 points, five rebounds, and one assist in 22 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Gay has played pretty well since returning from his heel surgery and has scored in double-figures in four of his eight games. We don't really trust him, but he's playing well enough to at least be given a look in standard leagues right now. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:09 pm
     
  • Donovan Mitchell scores 30 points in Monday’s win
    Donovan Mitchell put up 30 points, two rebounds, five assists, four steals, and one turnover in 32 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Mitchell scored 21 of his 30 points in the second half and did whatever he wanted offensively in Monday’s blowout victory. Mitchell is a top-20 value in 9-cat leagues this season and continues to fill the stat sheet.    NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 22 points on Monday vs POR
    Jordan Clarkson scored 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting with six rebounds, and three assists in 30 minutes on Monday night.

    Advice: Clarkson has scored 20-plus points in three of his last four games and could have a few monsters coming with two of his next three opponents giving up over 32 points per game to opposing benches, placing them both in the bottom five in the NBA in that category.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • Rudy Gobert double-doubles in Monday’s win
    Rudy Gobert hit 9-of-11 shots for 21 points with 16 rebounds, three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes on Monday night.

    Advice: Gobert has struggled in his last two games but bounced back in Monday’s 129-107 win over the Trail Blazers. Gobert could continue to dominate as his next two opponents are in the bottom ten in opponent offensive rebounds per game. More double-doubles are on the way.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Amir Coffey scores nine in start on Monday
    Amir Coffey started and played 24 minutes, hitting 3-of-4 shots and two 3-pointers for nine points and three rebounds in Monday's ugly 123-104 loss to the Pelicans. 

    Advice: Coffey got the call with Moe Harkless and Nicolas Batum out tonight, but he didn't exactly shock the world. Just keep an eye on Coffey in case he starts playing well once Batum and Harkless are back in action, which should be sooner than later.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Anfernee Simons lights up Jazz with 24 points
    Anfernee Simons scored 24 points, one rebound, two assists, one block, and two turnovers in 29 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Simons continued to provide a spark off the bench for a second consecutive night with Powell out of the lineup and is worth a look in most leagues, especially with Portland having three games remaining this week. Just be ready for him to take a hit once Powell is back. But any time Powell or Damian Lillard is out, Simons is worth a look everywhere. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • C.J. McCollum scores 19 points in Monday’s loss
    C.J. McCollum scored 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, six assists, and one turnover in 37 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: McCollum has been streaky this month, but could string along a few big games as two of his next three are against opponents who struggle at guarding opposing backcourts.    NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Tony Snell scores eight points in fill-in start on
    Tony Snell hit 3-of-7 shots for eight points, two rebounds, and one steal in 16 minutes of Monday’s start in a 129-107 loss.

    Advice: Snell got the start after Norman Powell (right quad) was ruled out. Snell doesn’t hold any fantasy value and should be left on the waivers. Nassir Little started over Snell in the second half and hit 3-of-10 shots for seven points, six rebounds, and two assists. Little is doing enough to be on fantasy radars in all leagues and might be worth a flier with three more games this week. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Paul George leads LAC with 27 - in loss to Pels
    Paul George hit 10-of-20 shots and three 3-pointers for 27 points, three rebounds, three assists, a steal and seven turnovers in an ugly 123-104 loss to the Pelicans on Monday night.

    Advice: The Clippers are just 11-10 and are clearly missing Kawhi Leonard and Nicolas Batum. Jonas Valanciunas wrecked Ivica Zubac and company to the tune of 39 points, 15 rebounds and seven 3-pointers and the Clippers have now lost six of their last nine games. PG-13 is having trouble carrying the load by himself and his 15 turnovers (7 & 8) in his previous two games are a sign of bigger problems with the roster. But at least he's a Top 12 fantasy player, for now.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
     
  • Jusuf Nurkic double-doubles in Monday night’s loss
    Jusuf Nurkic hit 9-of-13 shots for 24 points, 10 rebounds, and one assist in 26 minutes in Monday's loss.

    Advice: Nurkic posted his ninth double-double of the season and second over his past three games. Nurkic has played well over his last three, posting an average of 23.0 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 3.0 assists. Nurk could have a few monster games over his next two as his opponents are in the bottom four in the NBA at guarding centers.    NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • P.J. Washington plays well off the bench vs CHI
    P.J. Washington hit 5-of-8 shots for 15 points, three rebounds, one steal, one block, and two turnovers in 31 minutes in a 133-119 loss Monday night  against the Bulls.

    Advice: Washington has battled some injuries this month but has played over his last three by scoring in double-figures in all of them. Washington's good play could continue as his next three opponents are all in the bottom third in the NBA in guarding forwards. Opposing forwards are averaging 22.6 points and 10.6 rebounds them and the only reason Washington came off the bench tonight was because it was Nick Richards' birthday - and Richards only played seven minutes. PJW is a must-roster player at this point.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Gordon Hayward scores 22 points in Monday’s loss
    Gordon Hayward notched 22 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, and two turnovers in 37 minutes on Monday night.

    Advice: Hayward continued to fill the stat sheet in Monday’s loss as he scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter. Hayward looked like the best player on the floor for much of the fourth quarter as he scored efficiently on all three levels.    NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Terry Rozier scores 31 points on Monday
    Terry Rozier hit 11-of-17 shots for 31 points along with two rebounds, four assists, one block, and one turnover in 36 minutes in Monday's loss.

    Advice: Rozier is playing some of his best basketball to end the month and is averaging 27.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists with 5.2 triples made on 55.3% shooting over his last five games, making Charlotte's backcourt one of the fiercest in the league. Scary Terry is a top-40 fantasy player in the month of November and we expect him to continue his stellar play into December, so enjoy the ride.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:58 pm
     
  • Kelly Oubre Jr continues to play well on Monday
    Kelly Oubre Jr scored 18 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block in 32 minutes on Monday night.

    Advice: Oubre has been on a tear over his last four games, posting averages of 22.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals with 3.5 triples on 36.8% shooting. Over the past week, Oubre has been a top-25 fantasy player and has favorable matchups over his next three. Two of his next three opponents are in the bottom 12 in opponents bench points.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:57 pm
  • Zach LaVine lights up Hornets on Monday night
    Zach LaVine shined on Monday night as he scored 25 points with six rebounds, five assists, and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Despite having to deal with an illness over the weekend, he did not let that slow him down as he was in attack mode from the opening tip. LaVine scored in a variety of ways by throwing down thunderous dunks, blowing by defenders for mid-range jumpers, or step-back threes.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm
     
  • Amir Coffey starting for Cllps on Monday
    Amir Coffey will start for the Clippers on Monday with Moe Harkless and Nicolas Batum out. 

    Advice: He might be worth a flier in DFS but hasn't done much this year. Luke Kennard is a better bet for success tonight. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 5:55 pm
  • Zach LaVine available to play on Monday
    Zach LaVine has been cleared to play on Monday after dealing with an illness.

    Advice: He may not be feeling 100 percent but the fact he's no longer a game-time call means he should be good to go tonight. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:35 pm
     
  • Zach LaVine (illness) a game-time decision
    Zach LaVine (illness) will be a game-time call for Monday's matchup with the Hornets.

    Advice: All COVID-19 tests came back negative on LaVine, but he is running a fever and wasn't able to partake in shootaround. Billy Donovan wants to see how he looks while going through his pregame routine, but it looks like LaVine is going to be a true 50-50 call tonight. If he is forced to the sidelines, that'll open up some opportunity for Coby White while DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic will do the heavy lifting on offense. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 3:20 pm
     
  • Tony Snell to start Monday against Utah
    Tony Snell will start in place of Norman Powell (right knee contusion) on Monday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Powell will start and should get a decent amount of minutes, but we do not expect him to provide much of anything in terms of fantasy value.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 11:12 am
  • Zach LaVine (illness) questionable Monday vs CHA
    Bulls guard Zach LaVine (illness) has been listed as questionable for Monday's game against Charlotte.

    Advice: No information was given on what the illness is or the severity of it so we will have to wait to see what other information becomes available as we get closer to tip-off.   LaVine played 37 minutes in Monday's game against Miami and scored just 16 points on 6-of-16 shooting from the floor. Should LaVine be out Monday, expect Coby White to get some extra run off the bench with Alex Caruso likely sliding into the starting lineup. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:39 am
     
  • Paul George scores 30 with eight turnovers in loss
    Paul George tallied 30 points (11-of-24 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), five rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes Sunday, as the Clippers lost to the Warriors by a 105-90 final score.

    Advice: George hitting the 30-point mark for the sixth time this season is certainly a positive, but he's had better overall games than this. In addition to failing to record a defensive stat, he was also responsible for eight of the Clippers' 24 turnovers. While a top-10 player in 9-cat formats, George is doing so while shooting just 42.6% from the field. The absence of Kawhi Leonard (knee) has certainly boosted PG-13's value, but it hasn't been smooth sailing with regard to how George goes about getting his offense.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Sunday, 3:17 pm
     
  • Rudy Gay posts multiple season highs in blowout
    Rudy Gay scored 13 points on Saturday to go along with season highs in rebounds (seven) and assists (five), adding one steal in 23 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Jazz lead the NBA in offensive efficiency with 114.2 points per 100 possessions, and they trail only Golden State in net rating (+9.0). That extreme efficiency was on display tonight with a yawning double-digit lead for most of the game, which led to more run for the bench -- Gay's 23 minutes were easily a season high. He's capable of sneaky 8-cat and 9-cat value in limited minutes, but is more of a deep-league option unless Royce O'Neale (right foot) unexpectedly misses more time. NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 8:59 pm
     
  • Jazz cruise to blowout 127-105 win vs. Pelicans
    Rudy Gobert had six points, eight rebounds, two blocks, one steal and one assist in 27 minutes during Saturday's easy win vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: Prior to the game, Gobert had some pointed criticism of his team and suggested that players were too focused on individual stats and accolades. "I don't know how many years we're gonna keep losing in the playoffs and not learn from it," he said. "We need to put our egos aside and learn ... We're not playing like a team that wants to compete for a championship." Whether or not his words had an impact, Utah seized a 14-point lead after one quarter tonight and never looked back. Gobert is about as steady as they get in fantasy, all but ensuring his managers will win three categories (FG%, rebounds, blocks) on a weekly basis. NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 8:58 pm
  • P.J. Washington has all-around gem with 13/6/5/2/2
    P.J. Washington stuffed the stat sheet in another start on Saturday, hitting 5-of-7 shots for 13 points with three 3-pointers, six assists, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

    Advice: Washington started with Mason Plumlee (calf) sidelined again. Hornets coach James Borrego said prior to the game that when PJ plays center, "The floor opens up offensively for us because he creates more space for us, especially when he is hitting shots." That opens the door to a potential lineup change, though for now we'll assume Washington heads back to the bench when Plumlee is healthy. Either way, he needs to be rostered while we find out. NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 8:41 pm
  • Terry Rozier attempts 16 triples, scores 31 points
    Terry Rozier scored 31 points during Saturday's OT loss in Houston, hitting 9-of-23 shots including a 6-of-16 mark from downtown.

    Advice: Rozier also tied his season high with five assists, and added three rebounds, one steal and one block. Charlotte was coming off a blistering performance from deep with a franchise-record 23 made triples vs. the Wolves on Friday, and at times it looked like Rozier wanted to set a new record all by himself tonight. His scoring has surged, he had a six-steal game on Wednesday, and he's quietly thrilling 9-cat managers with seven turnovers combined in his past eight games. NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 8:39 pm
     
  • Kelly Oubre Jr. scores 23 points in road defeat
    Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 23 points on Saturday, making 8-of-19 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws with four rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

    Advice: Charlotte lost for the second time in their past 10 games, with Oubre clanking a 3-pointer that would have given his team the lead with 3.1 seconds left in overtime. The loss doesn't detract from Oubre's fantasy output, of course, and his five stocks (combined steals and blocks) were easily a season high. He's settled into a sixth-man role nicely, and there's no reason to think he can't continue to produce 12-team fantasy value the rest of the season. NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 8:38 pm
  • Donovan Mitchell held to 16 points in tough loss
    Donovan Mitchell went just 6-of-21 from the floor and 2-of-2 at the stripe for 16 points in Friday's one-point loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: Mitchell added four rebounds, two triples and six dimes while he was out there, but he also committed an unfortunate four turnovers, so this just wasn't a very good night for the 25-year-old two-guard. Mike Conley wasn't much better, finishing with 12 points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers across 31 minutes in the disappointing loss, but we'd anticipate a bounce-back performance in Saturday's rematch. NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 10:56 pm
  • Anfernee Simons score 19 off the bench in loss
    Anfernee Simons came off the bench and scored 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting (5-of-10 3-pointers) and added six rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 29 minutes, but the Blazers lost 118-103 on Friday night. 

    Advice: Simons led the Blazers in scoring on Friday, and he was big down the stretch in cutting the lead, but it wasn't enough at the end of the night. After three single-digit scoring nights in a row, Simons has now scored in double figures for two straight games. He played well, but he isn't consistent enough to be worth adding at the moment.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 9:57 pm
  • Kelly Oubre nets 27 points with seven treys in win
    Kelly Oubre came off the bench for 27 points on 10-of-17 shooting to go with seven triples, one rebound and one block over 27 minutes.

    Advice: Oubre got off to a hot start today, dropping in 15 points on nine shots through his first 13 minutes of play, and this was his second game in November with seven trey-bombs. Tsunami Papi has been inconsistent this season, but after a game like this, you might as well grab him and see if he can keep it up on Saturday in Houston. NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 6:58 pm
  • Gordon Hayward bounces back with 18-point game
    Gordan Hayward went 7-of-13 from the floor and 2-of-3 at the stripe for 18 points, six rebounds, six assists, two triples, three swats and an unfortunate five turnovers across 27 minutes on Friday.

    Advice: Hayward only managed to score one point while attempting just six shots his last time out, so tonight came the inevitable bounce-back performance, and he had 10 points in his first 10 minutes of play. He’s been a steady, mid-round producer this season with averages of 16.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.8 triples, 0.9 steals, 0.6 swats and 2.0 turnovers per contest on 46.4% shooting from the field and 85.9% at the stripe. NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 6:54 pm
  • P.J. Washington nets 17 points in spot-start
    P.J. Washington netted 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting Friday, to go with six rebounds, one assist, five triples and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Washington has been very underwhelming this season operating as Mason Plumlee’s backup, but with Plumlee (calf) on the sidelines tonight he was able to get the spot-start and he made the most of the increased opportunity. He did get himself into some foul trouble, and he failed to record any defensive statistics, but if Plumlee is out again on Saturday in Houston, Washington will be someone to think about streaming. NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 6:51 pm
  • Zach LaVine goes for 21/5/4 in blowout win Friday
    Zach LaVine scored 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting (3-of-7 3-pointers) and added five assists, and four rebounds as the Bulls beat the Magic on Friday night.

    Advice: LaVine and his buddy DeMar DeRozan have been scoring machines for the Bulls this season, as the duo entered Friday 6th and 7th in the NBA in scoring respectively. DeRozan had one of his better shooting games on Friday night, which included a 3-of-3 mark from beyond the arc. He finished with 23 points on 7-of-16 shooting with five rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes. NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 6:29 pm
     
  • Anfernee Simons, Zeller available to play Friday
    Anfernee Simons (illness) and Cody Zeller (knee) will be available to play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Simons is back in action after a one-game stint on the sidelines, which means Damian Lillard won't need to log 40 minutes tonight, and Dennis Smith Jr. will likely fall out of the rotation entirely. NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 5:58 pm
  • Anfernee Simons (illness) questionable for Friday
    Anfernee Simons (upper respiratory illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Warriors. 

    Advice: Simons could miss a second consecutive game due to an upper respiratory illness. If so, that would mean some rotation minutes for Dennis Smith Jr. DSJ would not be worth streaming, regardless of league format.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 3:33 pm
  • Nurk Alert: 28-17-5 for Jusuf Nurkic in loss
    Jusuf Nurkic hit 12-of-17 shots for a season-high 28 points, 17 rebounds, five assists and a steal before fouling out of Wednesday's 125-121 loss to the Kings.

    Advice: His previous season high in scoring was 20 and he blew that out of the water tonight against the center-less Kings, and also tied his season high in rebounds. He didn't block a shot and had scored in single digits in four of his previous seven games, so it was nice to finally see another Nurk Alert. Unfortunately, he doesn't get to play the Kangz every night. Nurk will look to keep it going against the Warriors on Friday, but the fact they run and don't use a true center much probably means we're not in for a repeat performance from Nurkic in that one.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 9:55 pm
  • Rudy Gay scores 15 with 5 triples in 16 minutes
    Rudy Gay hit 5-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points and five rebounds in just 16 minutes off the bench on Wednesday. 

    Advice: Gay got off to a hot start this season with 20 points, five boards and five triples in his first game on Nov. 18 and then disappeared for two games before tonight's solid line. Inconsistency will be his middle name and we're guessing his debut 20-point game will be the high point of his season.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 7:34 pm
     
  • Rudy Gobert goes for 15 & 17, 5 blocks in win
    Rudy Gobert hit 5-of-7 shots and 5-of-6 free throws for 15 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and five blocks in Wednesday's 110-104 win over the Thunder.

    Advice: The Thunder don't have a dominant center and Gobert had his way tonight, despite attempting just seven shots. This makes back-to-back five-block games for Gobert and he's double-doubled in seven straight games, and eight of his last nine. He's good at basketball. Bojan Bogdanovic scored 19 points, Mike Conley had 18, Donovan Mitchell struggled with his shot and tied his season low with 13 points, and Jordan Clarkson came through with 20 points off the pine in the win.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 7:23 pm
  • P.J. Washington plays six minutes in his return
    P.J. Washington (elbow) played just six minutes in his return to action on Wednesday night. 

    Advice: He finished without a point and just a rebound and a block, and it's clear that Mason Plumlee is locked and loaded into the center role right now. PJW still has a chance to turn things around, but he's more of a watch-list guy than someone you want on your roster right now.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 6:44 pm
  • Kelly Oubre scores 21 in win over Magic
    Kelly Oubre hit 7-of-17 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, four rebounds and six assists in Wednesday's win. 

    Advice: He scored seven and eight points in his previous two games and has been very unpredictable thus far. While this explosion wasn't quite as dramatic as when he backed up an eight-point game with 37 points in the next one on Nov. 10, it was close. Treat Oubre like your non-crypto retirement plan and only check in on his stat lines occasionally. He's clinging to fantasy value at 14th-round returns but could be much better if he starts playing better on a consistent basis. Just don't hold your breath. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 6:37 pm
  • Terry Rozier posts another monster line in win
    Terry Rozier hit 11-of-22 shots and three 3-pointers for 27 points, three rebounds, five assists, a career-high six steals and a block with just one turnover in Wednesday's 106-99 win over the Magic.

    Advice: Rozier might be on his way to a Player of the Week honor after going off for 32 points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals and eight 3-pointers on Monday. LaMelo Ball had 22 points, four rebounds, four assists and four triples tonight, but Rozier has been a monster over his last couple games. It's a sell-high moment for Rozier's managers but there's no reason he can't keep this up all season long. And the streaking Hornets have won seven of their last eight games. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 6:31 pm
     
  • Gordon Hayward disappears on Wednesday
    Gordon Hayward missed all six of his shots and scored just one point, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 25 minutes of Wednesday's win over the Magic.

    Advice: Hayward is being overshadowed this season by LaMelo Ball, Miles Bridges and Terry Rozier and may have been distracted by Thanksgiving or the lack of competition from the Magic. But Hayward is now a role player with several stars around him and has scored 11 or fewer points in three of his last five games. Despite the reduced role Hayward is still returning fifth-round fantasy value this season, so things could be a lot worse. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 6:19 pm
  • Anfernee Simons (illness) ruled out Wednesday
    Anfernee Simons (illness) is out for Wednesday vs. the Kings. 

    Advice: With Simons out, we may get an extended look at Dennis Smith Jr. as the backup PG. Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum may have a slightly higher floor as well. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 6:06 pm
  • Anfernee Simons questionable with illness
    Anfernee Simons is questionable for Wednesday's game due to an upper-respiratory illness.

    Advice: If he's out Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum will see even more minutes and Dennis Smith Jr. could be forced into action tonight. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 5:01 pm
  • P.J. Washington (elbow) will return to action Wed.
    P.J. will (left elbow hyperextension) will return from 10 games on the sidelines for Wednesday’s game against the Magic.

    Advice: The Hornets will have another piece to their puzzle back and finally ready to roll, but we’d like to see how he fares before we consider him a standard-league asset going forward. There's a chance Jaden McDaniels will now be the odd man out with Washington back in action.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 3:42 pm
  • P.J. Washington (elbow) upgraded to questionable
    P.J. Washington (left elbow hyperextension) has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against Orlando. 

    Advice: Washington looks like he is making progress as we get closer to tipoff. Washington has not played since November 3rd, so if he can suit up, he'll give Charlotte some added depth down low. Should he play, Nick Richards and Jalen Mcdaniels will likely fall out of the rotation for the Hornets. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 9:55 am
  • Paul George struggles, hits big shot to force OT
    Paul George hit just 7-of-23 shots, 1-of-6 3-pointers and 11-of-12 free throws for 26 points, nine rebounds, six assists and a block in Tuesday's 112-104 overtime loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: PG-13's only 3-pointer of the game was the truest buzzer-beater you'll see, as it got out of his hands within milliseconds of the final buzzer and capped off an 11-1 Clippers run to send the game to overtime. His shot was broken in this one but he still managed to put up a solid fantasy line on an off night.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 10:55 pm
     
  • C.J. McCollum's 32 leads Blazers to easy win
    C.J. McCollum hit 13-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers for 32 points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and zero turnovers in Tuesday's 119-100 win over the reeling Nuggets.

    Advice: He hit just 1-of-3 free throws but the rest of his game was fire tonight. Dame Lillard was also hot, hitting 9-of-13 shots and five 3-pointers for 25 points, three boards, five assists and a steal in the win.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 9:30 pm
  • P.J. Washington (elbow) doubtful Tuesday
    P.J. Washington (left elbow hyperextension) has been listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against Orlando.

    Advice: We expect Washington to continue to be on the sidelines Wednesday as he has not played since November 3rd. Though he is making progress, it does not look like he is close to a return just yet, but he definitely is trending in the right direction. There is no need to have him rostered at the moment. NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 11:32 am
  • Terry Rozier hits eight triples in Monday's win
    Terry Rozier hit 11-of-19 shots and a season-high 8-of-11 3-pointers for a season-high 32 points, two rebounds, four assists and two steals in Monday's exciting 109-103 win over the Wizards.

    Advice: LaMelo Ball stole the show tonight but Rozier was nearly as good, playing his best game of the season. His last 3-pointer came with 12.9 seconds remaining and secured the win for the streaking Hornets, who have won six of their last seven. Rozier's poor field goal percentage has hurt his fantasy value thus far but he couldn't miss tonight. NBCSportsEDGE.com Monday, 6:43 pm
     
  • P.J. Washington (elbow) out again on Monday
    P.J. Washington (left elbow hyperextension) will remain on the sidelines for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: It'll be his 10th straight game out of the lineup, although he has been making progress recently, ramping up his workload at recent practices. There's no reason to hold him in standard settings, though. NBCSportsEDGE.com Monday, 3:24 pm
  • Amir Coffey posts 3/5/2 line in 25 minutes
    Starting for Nicolas Batum (health and safety protocols), Amir Coffey finished Sunday's 97-91 win over the Clippers with three points (1-of-2 FGs), five rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes. 

    Advice: Coffey made his second spot start in less than a week, but he failed to offer much in the way of fantasy value. Managers who consider slotting Coffey into their lineups when Batum sits need to be mindful of how risky that is. In other words: streaming Coffey will, on most nights, do more harm than good.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 21, 3:08 pm
  • Paul George leads Clippers to win with 29 points
    Paul George played 37 minutes in Sunday's 97-91 win over the Mavericks, recording a line of 29 points (12-of-25 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Sunday was a bit of a mixed bag for George, who struggled to get to the foul line this week. After putting up 13 in a November 14 loss to the Bulls, PG-13 didn't get to the line at all in games against the Spurs and Grizzlies. Attempting two on Sunday represents an improvement, but that still isn't what we've come to expect from George. However, even without the friendly whistle he remains a top-5 player in 9-cat formats.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 21, 3:00 pm
     
  • LAC starts Jackson, Bledsoe, George, Coffey, Zubac
    Reggie Jackson, Eric Bledsoe, Paul George, Amir Coffey and Ivica Zubac will start Sunday's game against the Mavericks. 

    Advice: With Nicolas Batum (illness) sidelined, Coffey will make his second spot start in less than a week's time. The third-year wing also started Thursday's loss to Memphis, posting a line of eight points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes. This opportunity does not make Coffey a must-add player, regardless of league format.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 21, 12:08 pm
  • P.J. Washington (left elbow) doubtful for Monday
    P.J. Washington (left elbow hyperextension) is doubtful vs. the Wizards on Monday.

    Advice: Fantasy managers should prepare to be without him for another game, though maybe we'll get an optimistic update after Hornets' shootaround. The good news is that he's been practicing since early last week and presumably we'll see him on the court this week. If he's out Monday, he'd get a maximum three-game week with contests on Wednesday (at Orlando), Friday (vs. Minnesota) and Saturday (at Houston). NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 21, 12:05 pm
  • C.J. McCollum scores 18 w/ 5 dimes & 1 stl in win
    C.J. McCollum put up 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting (4-of-9 3-pointers) and added six rebounds, five assists, one steal, and three turnovers as the Blazers beat the Sixers 118-111 on Saturday night.

    Advice: Steady would be a good word to describe McCollum's performance on Saturday as it wasn't overwhelming, but he still was very solid and hit some big shots in some big moments for Portland, who had to be ecstatic to see Damian Lillard finally get hot. The same could be said for Norman Powell, who scored 17 points on6-of-11 shooting (1-of-1 3-pointers) with two assists in one rebound in 29 minutes. Nassir Little scored 11 points with four rebounds off the bench.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 20, 9:48 pm
  • Donovan Mitchell destroys Kings in easy win
    Donovan Mitchell destroyed the Kings in an easy win on Saturday, putting up 26 points, five assists, five rebounds, one steal and three triples. 

    Advice: Mitchell has been ridiculously good this season. He's flirting with first-round value in 9-cat, with the biggest difference from previous years being his 2.0 steals per game. He'll get a matchup vs. the Grizzlies on Monday. NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 20, 9:35 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic double-doubles w/2 stls, 1 blk in win
    Jusuf Nurkic scored 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting (1-of-1 3-pointers) and grabbed 11 rebounds with three assists, two steals, and one block as the Blazers beat the Sixers 116-111 on Saturday night.

    Advice: Nurkic was ultra-efficient on Saturday night and he tallied his second straight double-double on Saturday night. With no Embiid for the Sixers, life was certainly a lot easier for Nurkic, but considering he was getting spoon-fed dunks and layups at the rim most of the night, it might not have made much of a difference. He was also solid on the defensive end and provided some good value in that department as well. Nurkic will try to make it three straight good outings on Tuesday against Denver. NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 20, 9:35 pm
  • P.J. Washington (elbow) ruled out Saturday
    P.J. Washington (left elbow hyperextension) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Atlanta.

    Advice: Washington has not played since November 3rd, but he returned to practice this week, and is close to a return. If you have an I.I spot, and have held on to him, he should be a solid low-end value when he returns. NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 20, 3:28 pm
  • Zach LaVine scores season-high 36 points in win
    Zach LaVine went off for a season-high 36 points in a 114-108 win vs. Denver on Friday, adding five rebounds, four assists, one steal and four triples. 

    Advice: He hasn't even been 100 percent this season because of a left thumb issue so the fact that he's ranked inside the top-30 in 9-cat is very encouraging. The Bulls hadn't won a game in Denver since 2006, so it took an incredible effort from LaVine to end the streak. Chicago will return home to face the Knicks on Sunday.

  • Paul George struggles shooting in loss Friday
    Paul George scored 19 points on 8-of-26 shooting (3-of-14 three-pointers) and added seven rebounds, six assists, and one steal, as the Clippers lost to the Pelicans 94-81 on Friday evening.

    Advice: When PG13 goes, the Clippers go, and that was indeed the case on Friday evening. The Clippers shot an abysmal 37.8% from the floor and 24.3% from three, and only attempted five total free throws on the evening, George failed to even attempt a free throw on Friday for the second straight game and the seventh time this season. For the Clippers to have any chance of winning, George has to put the ball in the hoop, because it seems like nobody else on the Clippers knows how to these days.

  • Gordon Hayward scores 25 points w/ big line
    Gordon Hayward went off for 25 points, four rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and one triple in a win over the Pacers on Friday.

    Advice: Hayward was due for a big night after scoring a combined 18 points in his previous two games. After being plagued by injuries for years, Hayward has played 17 straight games to open the season and has been a reliable mid-round value. NBCSportsEDGE.com Nov 19, 6:59 pm
