Player Notes

  • Jonas Valanciunas double-doubles with five swats
    Jonas Valanciunas double-doubled during Monday's win over the Pelicans with 20 points (9-of-12 FG, 2-of-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and a season-high five swats over 28 turnover-less minutes.

    Advice: The Grizzlies racked up five swats within the first quarter of play, which set a new season-high for the most blocks in a single quarter of action, and with 19 total rejections on the evening they tied their franchise record. JV also became the first Grizzly in franchise history to ever record a 20-10-5 line on 75% shooting from the field. Jaren Jackson Jr. (12 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one trey, one steal, three turnovers) and Kyle Anderson (13 points, four rebounds, four assists, one triple) joined the block party with four apiece, and Brandon Clarke (eight points, four rebounds, two steals, one turnover) returned three shots in his 17 minutes off the bench.

  • James Johnson scores 13 points in loss to Memphis
    James Johnson went 4-of-10 from the floor and 5-of-6 at the stripe for 13 points in Monday's narrow loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Johnson added seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and zero turnovers in his 28 minutes of floor time, but the Pelicans just couldn't get the job done tonight, and they're chances of making the play-in tournament are quickly slipping away. Naji Marshall finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, three steals, one block and one turnover through 31 minutes as a starter, so both these guys should be rostered for New Orleans' final three games, as it seems unlikely that Brandon Ingram (ankle) or Zion Williamson (finger) will return.

  • Jakob Poeltl nearly triple-doubles with 8 dimes
    Jakob Poeltl somehow nearly had a triple-double on Monday night with nine points, 10 rebounds, a career-high eight assists, a steal and three blocks on 4-of-8 shooting in Monday's 146-125 blowout win over the Bucks. 

    Advice: Poeltl has been kind of quiet on most nights lately but did have 11 points, 10 boards, four assists and four blocks on Friday. If you had him in your lineup tonight, your team is probably off to a nice start. And Poeltl still has four more games to go this week on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully, he plays in all of them despite a pair of back-to-backs.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:00 pm
  • Domantis Sabonis goes for 20 and 20 in Pacers’ win
    Domantis Sabonis scored 21 points (8-for-15 FG) and added 20 rebounds, nine assists, four blocks and three steals to lead Indiana to a 111-102 win over Cleveland Monday night.

    Advice: Sabonis has got to be one of the most underrated players in the NBA as he routinely flirts with triple doubles and tonight came just one assist shy of a 20-20-10 game for Indiana. For a Pacers team that has been ravaged by injuries to key players, and has dealt with turmoil from the top on down, what Sabonis has done to keep this team in position to make the postseason is nothing short of remarkable.

  • Bucks blown out by Spurs, Giannis scores 28
    Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 11-of-16 shots and 6-of-7 free throws for 28 points, three rebounds and four assists to lead the Bucks in an ugly 146-125 loss to the Spurs on Monday.

    Advice: A glance at the Bucks' box score doesn't look too bad, as all five starters and Bobby Portis scored in double digits, but the Spurs opened up an 87-64 lead at halftime and never looked back. Khris Middleton hit 10-of-15 shots for 23 points, Jrue Holiday scored 20, Portis scored 13 and Brook Lopez and Donte DiVincenzo each scored 12 in the blowout. The Bucks are still locked into the No. 3 seed and now sit a full game behind the No. 2 Nets. The Bucks play four more times this week with a couple back-to-back situations, including Tuesday night (and Sat/Sun) but the six guys who produced tonight are the ones you want to mess with in fantasy as long as they're playing.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:46 pm
  • Clint Capela pulls down 22 rebounds w/ four swats
    Clint Capela was a monster on the glass during Monday's win over the Wizards, pulling down 22 rebounds to go with 10 points, one assist, four swats and just one turnover across 35 minutes.

    Advice: Capela was held to just 10 points and nine boards with no blocks his last time out, but he swatted his first shot within his first four minutes of play tonight, had three by halftime, and pulled down his 10th board early in the second quarter. This was his 54th game of the season with double-digit rebounds, the 20th time he’s done so by halftime, and his sixth game of the year with at least 20 boards. John Collins was also solid tonight, finishing with 28 points, eight rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 33 minutes. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:08 pm
  • Daniel Gafford posts low-end line over 15 minutes
    Daniel Gafford contributed four points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover in 15 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: Gafford was limited to just six points without any blocks across 17 minutes on Saturday, but he got his first swat within his first 40 seconds of play today, although foul trouble was a bit of an issue. Unfortunately, since Scott Brooks said that Gafford was deserving of more minutes after an impressive performance last Wednesday, he hasn’t stuck to his word, as Gafford has regularly been confined to minutes in the teens. He’s still capable of producing in limited minutes, but it would be nice if Brooks would just stop starting Alex Len — who isn’t very good. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:03 pm
  • Daniel Theis (right hip) questionable Tuesday
    Daniel Theis is listed as questionable for Tuesday with a right hip injury.

    Advice: If he's out Thaddeus Young should see a boost against the Nets tomorrow.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:53 pm
    GTD
  • Anthony Davis listed as probable Tuesday
    Anthony Davis (calf) is listed as probable against the Knicks on Tuesday. 

    Advice: The Lakers are playing for their playoff lives so AD should be out there, along with LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:41 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk active Monday night in Portland
    Kelly Olynyk (ankle) will play Monday night as the Blazers host the Rockets.

    Advice: Olynyk was a beast Friday night in Milwaukee, but missed Saturday's game against Utah. He will be back in the lineup so Khyri Thomas might not play as much. Go ahead and get him active! NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm
  • Christian Wood (ankle) ruled out for Monday
    Christian Wood (right ankle) will not suit up for Monday's matchup with Portland.

    Advice: This will be his fourth straight game on the sidelines, which should result in big minutes for KJ Martin and lots of opportunity for Khyri Thomas. The tanking Rockets only have three more games on their schedule after tonight, and it's unclear if Wood will play in any of them. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:34 pm
  • Steven Adams (toe) out again on Monday
    Steven Adams (toe) will not play on Monday vs. Memphis.

    Advice: He was being listed as doubtful, so this isn't surprising, and it's currently unclear if he'll be ready to go on Wednesday in Dallas. Willy Hernangomez figures to earn another spot-start tonight and there will be additional minutes available for Jaxson Hayes in the second unit, so both those guys are on the radar as potential streamers. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 3:50 pm
  • Robert Williams (turf toe) doubtful Tuesday
    Robert Williams (turf toe) is doubtful to play Tuesday evening vs. Miami.

    Advice: Williams was pulled at halftime of Sunday's loss to Miami after giving it a go for 11 minutes. Celtics' coach Brad Stevens previously said that Williams' availability will be based on pain tolerance so there is a possibility we could see Williams in the second night of a back-to-back on Wednesday in Cleveland. For as long as Williams can't go, expect Tristan Thompson to get the majority of the minutes in his absence. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 3:00 pm
  • Maxi Kleber (Achilles) questionable for Tuesday
    Maxi Kleber (Achilles) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He's missed the past four games, but we'll have a better idea where he's at based on his activity level at tomorrow's shootaround. If he is able to get back out there, Willie Cauley-Stein would likely shift back to the second unit and Dwight Powell's minutes would dip. Stay tuned. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:52 pm
    INJ
  • Serge Ibaka out Tuesday; but traveling on trip
    Serge Ibaka (back) will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday's game vs. Toronto (in Tampa), but he is traveling with the team on their current four-game road trip.

    Advice: Los Angeles will end their season on the road, and it is an encouraging sign that Ibaka is now at least traveling with the team. He hasn't played since March 14, but Nicolas Batum said on Sunday that Serge has been going through 5-on-5 practices as of late and that he's "doing well." It seems there's a possibility that he could return for at least one of L.A.'s final three games, but he'll likely come back in a limited capacity, devoid of fantasy value. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:39 pm
    INJ
  • Joel Embiid (illness) is questionable Tuesday
    Joel Embiid (illness) is questionable for Tuesday vs. the Pacers. 

    Advice: The 76ers have a comfortable lead at the top of the East with one week left, so we could see Embiid getting multiple DNPs. Be ready to stream Dwight Howard whenever Embiid misses time.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:31 pm
    GTD
  • Aron Baynes off the injury report
    Aron Baynes (foot) has been removed from the injury report. 

    Advice: If Baynes is on your fantasy team your season most likely ended a few months ago.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:11 pm
  • Chris Boucher upgraded to questionable Tuesday
    Chris Boucher (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday vs. the Clippers. 

    Advice: Now there's a surprise. The Raptors have already thrown the towel on the season and will sit all four of Kyle Lowry, OG Anunoby, Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam (shoulder) Tuesday, so Boucher will have some mouthwatering upside if he's cleared.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:06 pm
  • Pascal Siakam (shoulder) ruled out Tuesday
    Pascal Siakam (shoulder strain) is out for Tuesday vs. the Clippers, as expected. 

    Advice: His season is most likely over but we're waiting to hear the results of his imaging that he had done Monday. The Raptors will be without all their studs with nothing left to play for, but it sounds like Chris Boucher (knee) could make a surprise return.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:04 pm
  • Kristaps Porzingis (knee) out again Tuesday
    Kristaps Porzingis (knee soreness) is out again for Tuesday vs. Memphis. 

    Advice: Coach Rick Carlisle did sound optimistic about his progress though, indicating that Porzingis could return as soon as Wednesday. In the meantime, Dwight Powell will continue to get the job done as a fantasy streamer.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 12:20 pm
