Player Notes

  • 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.

  • 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.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:53 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
  • 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.

  • 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. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:00 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. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:38 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
  • 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.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 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.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 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.  NBCSportsEDGE.com 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. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:40 pm

  • Danuel House, Olynyk starting Monday vs. Portland
    Danuel House and Kelly Olynyk will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Portland.

    Advice: Joining them in the starting unit tonight will be D.J. Augustin, KJ Martin and Jae'Sean Tate with DaQuan Jeffries and Anthony Lamb heading back to the second unit. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:36 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
  • Cam Johnson (wrist) out Tuesday at Golden State
    Cam Johnson (wrist) will be out for Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Johnson will now miss his third straight game for a Suns squad that is trying to chase down Utah for the top seed out west. In Johnson's absence, expect Jae Crowder and Torrey Craig to soak up the minutes on the wing, and Dario Saric could also benefit in small lineups.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:00 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
  • Jerami Grant (team vacation) out Tuesday
    Jerami Grant is one of several Pistons being held out on Tuesday vs. the Wolves. 

    Advice: The Pistons are hosting a tank party and you're invited! This week's event features Wayne Ellington (rest, calf), Mason Plumlee (rest) and Cory Joseph (rest, ankle).  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:43 pm
  • 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
