2 years agoLos Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram still could not find the rim on Tuesday, finishing just 2-for-11 from the floor for a forgettable seven points. Ingram did chip in nine boards, four assists, a steal and block, but he's averaging just 8.3 points on 29 percent shooting over the last five games. It's been a frustrating season for Ingram owners, as he teases owners with flashes of brilliance, only to follow it up with terrible performances. He's just 20 years of age and should continue to get better as the season goes on, but there's very little reason to believe he'll overcome his awful free-throw shooting (67 percent on the year) to increase his value. Ingram is outside the top 200 in value in nine-category leagues despite averaging 15.7 points per game. He's not getting enough treys from his position and is also turning the ball over 2.6 times per game. We don't recommend dropping him, but he's close to unplayable at the moment.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 years agoOrlando Magic point guard Elfrid Payton was terrific in a losing effort, scoring 21 points with seven boards and seven dimes. He would add three steals and a three-pointer, as he's red-hot coming in Tuesday. Payton has been on a tear, averaging 20.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 2.0 steals on 57 percent shooting over the past week. If you throw away the dud on Jan. 16, Payton has scored 21, 22, 19 and 27 points over his previous five games. Obviously, the red-hot shooting is not sustainable, but it's a good indication of his upside. He's still hovering just around late-round value on the year, but he looks like he's ready to roll in the second half of the season as the Magic continue to tank for lottery balls.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 years agoOrlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon had an off night in a 99-105 loss against the Kings on Tuesday night. Gordon continued to struggle shooting the basketball, finishing six of 17 from the field for 16 points. He did, however, pull down 12 boards and added two three-pointers, but he also committed seven turnovers. Gordon has been one of the better steals in this year's draft, so we can quickly forget about this outing. The athletic forward started off the year with a bang but has been trending down over the past month, where he's shooting just 38 percent from the field. He'll be much better than this and will likely be a monster come the second half of the season. There's some buy-low appeal here, as he has top-30 upside.--Dicky Fung - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 years agoOklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook put up quite a few points against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Westbrook scored 32 points, going 12-for-27 from the field and 8-for-11 from the charity stripe in addition to filling out the rest of the stat sheet with six assists, five boards, and two steals. In the month of January, Westbrook has scored 20 or more points in seven of nine games for an average of 24.6 points per contest.--Matt Sparkington - RotoBallerSource: Matt Sparkington-RotoBaller
2 years agoOklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams had a strong game on the glass against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Adams grabbed 14 boards, making it five games in a row where he has recorded double digits in the rebounding category, averaging 11 boards per contest during that same span. He did struggle shooting, totaling just six points on 3-for-12 from the field, which is something that he will need to address moving forward.--Matt Sparkington - RotoBallerSource: Matt Sparkington-RotoBaller
2 years agoOklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George followed up his stellar performance in Cleveland with another solid stat line against Brooklyn on Tuesday night. George notched 28 points, nine rebounds and one assist as the Thunder came from 15 points back in the second half to secure their fifth straight win. Paul has looked good of late, scoring 40-plus DraftKings points in three of his last four games while averaging 24 points, six rebounds and three assists over that stretch.--Matt MieszerskiSource: NBA.com
2 years agoBrooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen notched his first career double-double in the heartbreaking loss to the Thunder on Tuesday night. Allen scored 12 points and grabbed 11 boards as he showed his potential for this young Nets team. The rookie out of Texas has shown flashes of brilliance with his combination of size, length and quick-twitch athleticism. He is still as raw as they come offensively, mainly limited to dunks and put-back opportunities, so fantasy owners should stay away from him in season-long leagues and DFS. Allen does make an intriguing roster spot for those in dynasty formats because of his youth and skill set previously stated.--Bash MikeSource: ESPN
2 years agoOklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony had 10 points, eight rebounds and one block on just 33 percent shooting in the Thunder’s Tuesday night win over Brooklyn. Despite Melo's poor shooting performance, OKC managed to overcome a second-half, double-digit deficit at home against the Nets to give them their fifth straight win. Anthony and the Thunder will be off on Wednesday and will host John Wall and the Wizards on Thursday night in a prime-time spot. Thursday is a short four-game slate, but the matchup against Washington could be a nice target, as the Wizards rank sixth worst in fantasy points allowed to forwards, and the pace should play up.--Matt MieszerskiSource: nba.com
2 years agoBrooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Harris was on fire on Tuesday night in a last-second loss to Oklahoma City. Harris was 5-for-5 from beyond the arc and scored 19 points overall in what was a continuation of strong play for the former Virginia Cavalier. Harris, who came to the Nets with not a lot on his NBA resume and played mostly garbage minutes in Cleveland, has found a role here in his second season in Brooklyn. Harris’ production isn’t the most predictable from a fantasy standpoint, but in leagues that weigh heavy for three-point shooting, he is a capable option towards the back end of your roster.--Bash MikeSource: ESPN
2 years agoSacramento Kings forward/center Willie Cauley-Stein had a massive line against the Orlando Magic. WCS finished the game with 21 points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and an incredible five blocks. He also made half his shots from the floor (nine of 18) and only turned the ball over once. What makes this line more impressive is that he was coming off a double-double from the night before. These are lines we have been waiting for from WCS. He should continue rolling against the Miami Heat on Thursday. He needs to be owned everywhere at this point.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 years agoSacramento Kings forward/center Skal Labissiere just missed out on a double-double by posting 10 points and nine rebounds to go along with three assists, three blocks, and one 3-pointer against the Orlando Magic. The three blocks are the most that he has had since he had the same amount back on January 7th of this year. Labissiere, who was coming off a 23 point game the night before against the Charlotte Hornets, could be coming into his own. He should be owned in deeper-leagues, and eight-team leagues should be keeping an eye on him.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: Espn
2 years agoSacramento Kings guard/forward Bogdan Bogdanovic struggled from the field against the Orlando Magic on Tuesday, making only four of 12 and missing all four of his attempts from downtown. He did salvage his line by providing four rebounds and four assists, but nothing else. The Serbian had strung together a good run of games leading up to this dud, but his rest-of-season outlook is still very positive, as he will be getting the minutes. If George Hill does indeed get moved at the trade deadline, Bogdanovic will be let loose. He is worth a look in all league types. Look for Bogdanovic to bounce back against the Miami Heat on Thursday night.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
2 years agoSacramento Kings guard George Hill (rest) and Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Tuesday night against the Orlando Magic. The Kings have been using a system to rest their veterans and Hill and Koufos seem to be next in line Tuesday. In their absences, De'Aaron Fox and Skal Labissiere figure to get extended run. Fox should be owned in most leagues while the trade rumors are circulating around Hill. Labissiere is a speculative add in deeper leagues as long as Sacramento's lineups remain unpredictable.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Sean Cunningham
2 years agoCleveland Cavaliers guard/forward Iman Shumpert (knee, foot) will play Tuesday night against the San Antonio Spurs. Shump has been away from the court since late November after undergoing knee surgery but will finally make his return to the lineup. The Cavs back court is incredibly crowded as it is and with all the trade rumors swirling, it's possible Shumpert does not remain with the team for very long. Shumpert should remain on the waiver wire unless he gets moved to a better fantasy situation.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Dave McMenamin
2 years agoThe San Antonio Spurs will start forward Davis Bertans in Tuesday night's prime-time game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Spurs are thin in the front court without Rudy Gay (heel), Kawhi Leonard (quadriceps) and Pau Gasol (wrist). allowing Bertans to make his first start of the season. Bertans does not jump off the page statistically with averages of only 5.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.2 three-pointers in 13.2 minutes per game this season. However, the injuries should allow Bertans to reach at least 30 minutes Tuesday night, and he is an option for DFS players looking for a cheap big man to round out their lineup.--Dale Johnson - RotoBallerSource: Tom Orsborn
