  • Jordan Clarkson scores season-high 41 in loss
    Jordan Clarkson hit 16-of-33 shots and 5-of-16 3-pointers for a season-high 41 points, seven rebounds and a steal in Monday's 119-116 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Clarkson is the front-runner for Sixth Man of the Year and just missed his career high by a point tonight. He had two big and-1 three-point plays late and then hit a huge 3-pointer, giving the Jazz a brief lead after they trailed by as many as 18 points tonight. Clarkson has scored in double figures in every game since March 29 and has been flourishing with Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell both out for the Jazz. He'll look to keep it going against the Blazers on Wednesday night. 9 minutes ago
  • 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. Today, 8:17 pm
  • 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. Today, 8:14 pm
  • Donte DiVincenzo fills stat sheet in ugly loss
    Donte DiVincenzo hit 4-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 12 points, six rebounds, six assists and a block in Monday's surprising 146-125 loss to the Spurs. 

    Advice: Despite the lack of scoring, DiVincenzo had one of the Bucks' better stat lines tonight. He'll be at it again on Tuesday and the Bucks will play on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, as well. Hopefully, DiVincenzo will be in the lineup for all four of those. If you're still playing in a fantasy league and he's sitting out there, the four games make him worth a look. Today, 8:05 pm
  • Lonzo Ball posts solid low-end line in loss
    Lonzo Ball hit 5-of-7 shots for 12 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two triples, one steal, two blocks and one turnover across 34 minutes in Monday's loss to Memphis.

    Advice: Ball had been connecting on just 31.3% of his shots in his previous two outings, so he got things back on track from an efficiency standpoint tonight, and he also did a really nice job making life tough for Ja Morant — holding him to 5-of-14 shooting. Unfortunately, with the Pelicans losing tonight and the Spurs getting a win, they weren't able to gain any ground on the No. 10 seed, and with just three games remaining on their schedule making the play-in tournament seems close to impossible for New Orleans. Today, 8:04 pm
  • Damyean Dotson gets start for Love, scores 7 point
    Damyean Dotson posts seven points and 2 rebounds in 26 minutes in Monday night’s loss to Indiana.

    Advice: Dotson got the start for Kevin Love (rest) on Monday, but his performance was exceedingly underwhelming. Not only did he not do much offensively, but he failed to record any defensive statistics and played a role in allowing Indiana to shoot 50% from the field and 40% from distance. Even with quality minutes as a starter, Dotson isn’t worth a roster spot in most formats. Today, 8:04 pm
  • Collin Sexton scores 25, Cavs fall to Pacers
    Collin Sexton tallied 25 points, eight assists and five rebounds in Monday night’s loss to Indiana.

    Advice: Given the Cavaliers injury situation and their clear commitment to prioritizing the development of their young players, it is natural to see Sexton as the primary playmaker for the Cavs. With that being said, the 7-of-26 shooting from the floor and 1-of-6 shooting from three is less than ideal, but he did make up for it by going 10-of-12 at the stripe. If you are the Cavs, you have to take the good with the bad these days. Today, 7:59 pm
  • 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. Today, 7:56 pm
  • 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. Today, 7:53 pm
  • 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. Today, 7:53 pm
  • 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
  • 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
  • Russell Westbrook makes history with trip-dub 182
    Russell Westbrook moved past the great Oscar Robertson for the No. 1 spot on the NBA's all-time, triple-double list on Monday, recording the 182nd triple-double of his career with 28 points, 13 rebounds and 21 assists in a one-point loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: Westbrook finished 10-of-22 from the floor and 5-of-5 at the stripe and he added three triples and just three turnovers in his 40 minutes of floor time. He had his triple-double early in the fourth quarter, and he broke Robertson record — which stood for 47 years — in 100 fewer games played. This was also the second 20-assist game Russ has produced over the past week, and he has five straight games with at least 15 dimes, so he's likely been the key piece on a lot of winning 8-cat teams this season. Today, 6:50 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
  • Ty Jerome (calf) listed as questionable Tuesday
    Ty Jerome is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Kings with a left calf injury. 

    Advice: Theo Maledon has been ruled out so Aleksej Pokusevski could be busy, especially if Jerome doesn't play. Today, 5:55 pm
  • Theo Maledon (foot) ruled out for Tuesday
    Theo Maledon (left foot) won't play on Tuesday against the Kings. 

    Advice: Ty Jerome is questionable so it will be interesting to see what the Thunder do at point guard tomorrow. Aleksej Pokusevski could have a big night if both guards are out. Today, 5:51 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
  • LeBron James listed as out, expected to play
    LeBron James (ankle) is listed as out on the Lakers' injury report but he's expected to play on Tuesday against the Knicks.

    Advice: The Lakers haven't paid attention to updating their injury report for most of the season so we're guessing LeBron will play tomorrow. Stay tuned. Today, 5:34 pm

  • Damion Lee clears protocols, unclear on return
    Damion Lee has cleared protocols and is getting some work in on Monday after testing positive for COVID.

    Advice: It's unclear as to when he'll be ready to return to game action and Steve Kerr says the Warriors will "play it by ear." He last played on April 19. Today, 5:31 pm
  • Alec Burks (knee) questionable for Tuesday
    Alec Burks is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lakers with a left knee contusion.

    Advice: He was out on Sunday due to the injury and the Knicks are in must-win mode, so there's a decent chance he'll play on Tuesday night. We'll know closer to game time. Today, 4:19 pm
