1 week agoHouston Rockets guard Austin Rivers (thumb) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He sat out of Saturday's contest due to a sprained right thumb. Ben McLemore and Danuel House will split up the minutes if Rivers is forced to sit out on Monday. Regardless, McLemore and House are looking like more fantasy options than Rivers most nights.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Jonathan Feigen

1 week agoNew York Knicks guard Dennis Smith Jr. (oblique) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He's been making progress, but it's unclear when Smith will get back on the court. Fantasy owners should consider Smith out indefinitely at this point. Frank Ntilikina and Elfrid Payton will continue to split up the minutes at point guard in New York. Both players are worth a look in deep leagues.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report

1 week agoDallas Mavericks center Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is hopeful to get back in action for Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He's been sidelined due to right knee soreness, but was able to get through a full practice on Sunday. Porzingis has missed each of the last ten games, so he'll likely be limited if he does play against the Clippers. Maximilian Kleber and Dwight Powell will take a significant hit in value once Porzingis is back in action.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Callie Caplan

1 week agoLos Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis (tailbone) was unable to suit up for Sunday's practice. He's listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Boston Celtics. He's missed each of the last five games due to a bruised tailbone. Fantasy owners can expect a better update after shootaround on Monday. Kyle Kuzma would continue to see more minutes and increased usage if Davis sits out again.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Mike Trudell

1 week agoLos Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo (finger) was listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Boston Celtics. He's missed each of the last three games due to a finger issue. There's a good chance that he'll sit again on Monday, which will lead to more minutes for Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Dave McMenamin

1 week agoSacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox led his team in scoring for the fifth time in the last six games, collecting 21 points during Saturday’s loss to the Utah Jazz. Fox continued his recent stretch of churning out top notch fantasy performances, finishing 10-for-16 from the field overall, in addition to the eight assists and four rebounds that he racked up in his 31 minutes. His night was cut short after fouling out for the second time in his career. (His first came in his rookie year, also against Utah.) He next faces a Miami defense Monday that has stymied opposing point guards this year.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoUtah Jazz point guard Mike Conley saw 15 minutes off the bench during Saturday’s win over the Sacramento Kings, marking his first game action since Dec. 17 due to a hamstring injury. Head coach Quin Snyder was reticent to extend Conley too long, especially in the wake of a previous setback, as the veteran collected just three points, three assists and two steals during his time on the floor. He may not be a worthwhile fantasy asset for the next few games, but it’s worth keeping an eye on his performance Monday against a tough Indiana defensive unit.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoThe Utah Jazz acquired point/shooting guard Jordan Clarkson to score, and score he has since his arrival. He dropped 20 points off the bench during Saturday’s win over the Sacramento Kings, his fourth time reaching the 20-point plateau since his acquisition and seventh straight outing having scored in double figures. It was arguably his best showing since joining Utah by way of his 8-for-13 shooting performance (all five misses came from behind the arc) and five rebounds. Owners wary that Clarkson’s fantasy outlook may have been affected by the move can rest easy, as even with Mike Conley back in the mix, head coach Quin Snyder appears confident in maximizing Clarkson’s scoring abilities.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoUtah Jazz center Rudy Gobert put together arguably his best fantasy performance of the season during Saturday’s win over the Sacramento Kings, collecting 28 points on 9-for-11 shooting to go along with 15 rebounds. The outing marks Gobert’s sixth consecutive double-double, as he also added three blocks and two steals to his stat line. Not heralded for his free-throw percentage, Gobert went 10-for-11 from the line Saturday. Following another stellar showing, he sits second in the league in field-goal percentage (67.8) and rebounds per contest (14.5) this season, moving him into the elite fantasy echelon that he has approached over the last two seasons.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoUtah Jazz small/power forward Bojan Bogdanovic went 10-for-15 from the field, including 6-for-9 from behind the arc during Saturday’s win over the Sacramento Kings. His elite shooting performance delivered him his ninth performance having reached the 30-point plateau this season. As has become the norm particularly since the start of the new year, Bogdanovic contributed little else across the stat sheet, but his electric scoring touch should cancel out any concerns that owners possess. He next faces Indiana on Monday, whom he also notched 30 points against back on Nov. 27.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoHouston Rockets point/shooting guard James Harden continued his league-wide scoring barrage during Saturday’s defeat to the Los Angeles Lakers, collecting 34 points on 8-for-20 shooting. Harden continues to rewrite the modern free-throw shooting record book as he finished 16-for-18 from the stripe, now bringing his averages on the year up to 10.7 makes and 12.4 attempts per contest, vastly ahead of any other competition. In addition to the lofty scoring totals, he also added seven assists and six rebounds, delivering an all-around solid fantasy performance by his standards despite being dogged by Los Angeles’ tenacious wing defenders. He next faces Oklahoma City at home Monday, whom he scorched for 40 points back on Oct. 28, the last time that his former squad visited Houston.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoHouston Rockets point guard Russell Westbrook led his squad in scoring in back-to-back games for just the second time this season during Saturday’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Westbrook logged his second-highest shooting percentage of the year (65.2), while going for 35 points across 40 minutes. In typical Westbrook fashion, he flirted with a triple-double by adding nine rebounds and seven assists, also adding three steals. After a slow start -- by his MVP-level standards -- to the season, Westbrook has found a groove in the new year, having reeled off four consecutive games in excess of 30 points. He next faces his former squad, the Oklahoma City Thunder, on Monday.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoMilwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo recorded his 36th double-double of the season in Saturday's 117-97 victory against the Nets, as the 25-year-old finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and one block on 12-for-20 shooting from the field and 2-for-5 from three-point range. Antetokounmpo has averaged 30.0 points, 12.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 blocks as the midway point of the season has gone by, making the NBA's 2018-19 Most Improved Player a must-start candidate across all fantasy formats moving forward.--Denis Vondrus - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

1 week agoLos Angeles Lakers small/power forward Kyle Kuzma found his offensive rhythm during Saturday’s victory over the Houston Rockets, shooting 8-for-16 from the floor en route to a 23-point performance among the starting five. Kuzma once again drew the start with Anthony Davis (back) sidelined, as the third-year wing snapped his cold spell from deep and knocked down three triples. Additionally, he added eight rebounds and led the team in minutes played, showcasing the upside that he presents on a nightly basis, especially without Davis in the mix. He presents a boom/bust play in DFS ahead of Monday’s matchup with Boston.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

The 28-year-old produced his 20th 20+ point performance of the season in the contest, while his three steals tied a season-high. Middleton has posted top-25 value in 9-cat formats throughout the season, while totaling averages of 20.7 points, 5.9 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.2 steals through seven games in January, making the eighth year wing a strong option across all fantasy formats moving forward.--Denis Vondrus - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com
