Player Notes

  • Dillon Brooks nets 23 points with two steals
    Dillon Brooks produced 23 points, four rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and one turnover across 31 minutes in Monday's win over the Pelicans.

    Advice: Brooks got off to a hot start tonight, dropping in 16 points on 11 shots through the first half of action, but he cooled down a bit after halftime and finished on 9-of-21 shooting from the floor and 4-of-6 at the stripe. Ja Morant also struggled with his shot tonight, going 5-of-14 from the field and 0-of-5 at the stripe for 12 points, 12 assists, three rebounds, two triples, one steal and two turnovers in 35 minutes. 23 minutes ago
  • Alexander-Walker nets 18 points with six assists
    Nickeil Alexander-Walker came off the bench for 18 points, six assists, three rebounds, two triples, one steal and two turnovers across 24 minutes in Monday's loss to Memphis.

    Advice: That's two solid outings in a row for NAW, and with the Pelicans season slipping away, Stan Van Gundy should turn towards focusing on Alexander-Walker's development over these final three games. We're not optimistic about Brandon Ingram (ankle) or Zion Williamson (finger) playing again this season, which means NAW will be looking at a ton of opportunity and his minutes restrictions should rise with each game. Go get him. 26 minutes ago
  • 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. 29 minutes ago
  • Okoro posts first carer double-double in loss
    Isaac Okoro tallied his first career double-double with 22 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, and one steal, but the Cavaliers fell to the Pacers 111-102 on Monday.

    Advice: Okoro entered Monday night’s contest having scored in double figures in eight of his last nine games for the Cavaliers. Cleveland has clearly prioritized the development of their younger players in recent weeks and Okoro has taken full advantage of his opportunities and is starting to look like a promising young piece for the future in Cleveland. The only problem is that the Cavaliers have now lost an NBA worst 11 straight games and with their final three contests coming against teams who are fighting for postseason seeding, that streak could very well continue. 44 minutes ago
  • Caris Levert nets double-double in Pacers’ win
    Caris Levert tallied 20 points, 10 assists, three rebounds, one block and one steal as the Pacers defeated the Cavaliers on Monday.

    Advice: The former Michigan Wolverine has played All-Star caliber basketball in the month of May with averages of 26.3 points, 7.3 assists, and 5.2 rebounds per game on 43.8 percent shooting from the floor and 50.0 percent shooting from three. Levert and Sabonis are the only positives coming out of Indiana these days so be sure to keep your notifications on for those two. 46 minutes ago
  • DeMar DeRozan leads Spurs with 23 in blowout win
    DeMar DeRozan hit 9-of-17 shots and 5-of-7 free throws for 23 points, three rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes of Monday's win to lead the Spurs over the Bucks. 

    Advice: No threes, no steals, no blocks - rinse, repeat for DeRozan. Dejounte Murray scored 21 with six boards and nine dimes, Keldon Johnson and Patty Mills (6 3-pointers) each scored 20, Lonnie Walker and Rudy Gay scored 19 a piece, and Jakob Poeltl flirted with a triple-double, racking up nine points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, a steal and three blocks in the blowout. The Spurs set a franchise record with 87 points in the first half tonight and never looked back. The No. 10 Spurs are now 2.5 games up on the No. 11 Pelicans and 2.0 games behind the No. 9 Grizzlies and still have four more games this week. And with back-to-back sets on Weds/Thurs and Sat/Sun fantasy managers will want to watch the newsfeed closely to see who is in and who's out in those games. 47 minutes ago
  • 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. 47 minutes ago
  • 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. 54 minutes ago
  • Kevin Huerter hits 3-of-12 shots as a starter
    Kevin Huerter's shooting woes continued on Monday, as he went just 3-of-12 from the floor on his way to seven points, four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover across 37 minutes.

    Advice: Huerter found himself back in the starting lineup tonight with Tony Snell (Achilles) unavailable, and he surpassed 400 career triples tonight. He’s been in a bit of a shooting funk over his past few games, and his arrow might be pointing down with De'Andre Hunter making his return tonight, so he's not a guy we'd be clinging to. Danilo Gallinari finished tonight's game with eight points, three boards, two assists and one turnover in 21 minutes, and he too figures to see a downtick in production with Hunter back in the mix. Today, 7:10 pm
  • De'Andre Hunter logs 14 minutes off the bench
    De'Andre Hunter saw 14 minutes off the bench in his return to action on Monday, hitting 3-of-7 shots for six points and three rebounds in a win over the Wizards.

    Advice: Hunter looked fresh in his return from a 48-game absence, and he didn’t show too much rust, as his jumper was smooth and he was moving around fine on defense. He was the first man off the bench today, hit his first two shots (both mid-range, pull-ups), and seemed to be limited to eight-minute bursts. The Hawks are likely going to be extremely cautious with him over these final three games, and he could miss a game on the upcoming Wednesday-Thursday, back-to-back, so as much as we like him, he's not necessarily a must-roster player. Today, 7:04 pm
  • Rui Hachimura scores 20 points in loss to Hawks
    Rui Hachimura went 9-of-19 from the field and 1-of-1 at the line for 20 points over 28 minutes in Monday's loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: Hachimura had a nice two-man game going with Russell Westbrook tonight, getting tons of easy looks right at the rim in both transition and the pick-and-roll, and he added three rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and one turnover while he was out there. Davis Bertans saw 31 minutes off the bench and hit 5-of-10 shots for 15 points, four rebounds, two assists, five triples and zero turnovers in the loss. Today, 7:00 pm
  • Garrison Mathews starts; but logs just 14 minutes
    Garrison Mathews logged just 14 minutes as a starter on Monday, finishing with one 3-pointer, one rebound and nothing else in a loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: This is pretty much what you can expect from Garrison when he’s starting, which is why we didn’t recommend him as a target when it was announced that he’d replace Bradley Beal (hamstring) in the starting unit tonight. Chandler Hutchison saw 25 minutes off the bench with Beal on the sidelines and finished with six points, five rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, three steals, two blocks and one turnover, so he might be able to have some low-end value in deep leagues sans Bradley. Today, 6:57 pm
  • Kelan Martin nets career-high 25 in win
    Kelan Martin set a new career high with 25 points on 11-for-16 shooting (3-4 3PT) to go along with seven rebounds and one block on Monday.

    Advice: Entering Monday, Martin had scored in double figures just once all season. He was also averaging just 2.9 points and 1.7 rebounds per game. Luckily though, the Cavaliers are 28th in the NBA at guarding both shooting guards and small forwards, and Martin see's time at both positions. The Butler alum also posted a +15 plus-minus for the game, which was the highest of any player. This is likely just a one game outburst against a terrible defensive team so no need to put too much stock into this performance from a fantasy standpoint. Today, 6:38 pm
  • Troy Brown Jr. (left ankle) questionable Tuesday
    Troy Brown Jr. is listed as questionable for Tuesday with a sprained left ankle. 

    Advice: He hasn't been a fantasy factor all season. Today, 5:57 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. Today, 5:53 pm
  • Lu Dort listed (knee) as questionable Tuesday
    Lu Dort (knee) is listed as questionable for the Thunder vs. Sacramento on Tuesday. 

    Advice: He could play or sit and hasn't been playing very well in May. Start him at your risk if he does indeed play. Today, 5:49 pm
  • Jaden McDaniels not on injury report
    Jaden McDaniels is not on the injury report after missing his last game for personal reasons. 

    Advice: He should be out there against the Pistons on Tuesday which could hurt Jarred Vanderbilt, who has been playing well. Today, 5:47 pm
  • Harrison Barnes doubtful for Tuesday vs. OKC
    Harrison Barnes (groin) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday against the Thunder. 

    Advice: He's been out for several games and his season could be over. But the doubtful tag is a bit of an upgrade, so we'll have to see what happens. Today, 5:44 pm
  • 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. Today, 5:41 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma (back) probable Tuesday
    Kyle Kuzma is listed as probable for Tuesday against the Knicks despite his lower back tightness. 

    Advice: He was out on Sunday but should be back out there tomorrow night, along with Anthony Davis and possibly LeBron James. Today, 5:40 pm
