    • Jusuf Nurkic POR C
      Trail Blazers' Jusuf Nurkic: Magnificent in Monday's win
      4h ago

      Nurkic delivered 22 points (8-17 FG, 6-8 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, six blocks, and one steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.

      Nurkic matched his career high block total, swatting six shots for the second time in the last six games. He has been providing extremely well-rounded stat lines lately, with his assist and block numbers in particular standing out. Nurkic has recorded at least five blocks in four of 11 games here in January, this after swatting five or more blocks just six times through his first 275 career games. Meanwhile, Nurkic's assist average has increased with each passing month this season, and he has now handed out a whopping 39 dimes across the last six tilts.

      Trail Blazers' Jake Layman: Scores 12 points in 25 minutes
      4h ago

      Layman finished with 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.

      Layman has reached double figures in scoring in five straight games. He went off during Friday's matchup with the Pelicans despite Maurice Harkless re-claiming his starting spot in his return from injury, posting 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt) and one board in 18 minutes, highlighted by an incredible second quarter eruption. Layman is likely to cool off (32-of-49 from the field over the last five) but seems to be earning the confidence of coach Terry Stotts.

      Lillard collected 26 points (10-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, and eight assists in 36 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.

      Lillard finished two boards and two assists shy of a triple-double, torching the Jazz with a well-rounded stat line. He is maintaining a career-high field-goal percentage while providing his usual damage in the points and dimes departments.

      Harkless had six points (3-3 FG), one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one block in 18 minutes during Monday's 109-104 win over the Jazz.

      Harkless has combined to earn 39 minutes during his first two tilts back in the lineup after missing six of the previous seven with a knee injury. He has been efficient offensively, combining to score 18 points on nine field-goal attempts, albeit in his usual limited role. Harkless continues to hold down the fort as the starting small forward, but he's only a viable option in deeper leagues.

      O'Neale had 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block in 37 minutes during Monday's 109-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.

      O'Neale drew his sixth straight start and scored in double figures for the third consecutive contest. Ricky Rubio (hamstring) returned to the lineup following a six-game absence, but the veteran point guard came off the bench in this one. It's unclear if Rubio will re-join the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets, or whether coach Quin Snyder will stick with what has been working lately. Regardless, O'Neale has been extremely steady during this recent stretch of games, and he may have carved out a considerable role for himself going forward.

      Gobert registered 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks, and three assists in 33 minutes during Monday's 109-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.

      Gobert came off the bench because he didn't get on the court quick enough to start the game, but he replaced Jae Crowder 12 seconds into the first quarter. It was a fairly quiet line for Gobert, at least compared to the sensational box score stats he has been delivering lately. Overall, he is enjoying a breakout campaign, maintaining career-high per-game averages in scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals.

      76ers' Joel Embiid: Dominant in Monday's win
      6h ago

      Embiid recorded 32 points (9-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 14-17 FT), 14 rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 121-93 win over the Rockets.

      Embiid had been listed as a game-time decision due to back tightness but ultimately gave it a go and dominated despite playing fairly limited minutes. Embiid destroyed Nene Hilario, Kenneth Faried, and P.J. Tucker, and was subbed out early in the fourth quarter because the game was such a blowout. Embiid's back issues are worth keeping an eye on, but he has appeared in 45 of 48 contests this season and seems determined to prove he's capable of performing through pain as long as it's manageable.

      Rockets' Nene Hilario: Limited by foul trouble
      6h ago

      Hilario had four points (2-2 FG) and one rebound in eight minutes during Monday's 121-93 loss to the 76ers.

      Hilario committed three fouls and was banished to the bench for the vast majority of the contest, as he couldn't cover Joel Embiid. The arrival of Kenneth Faried, who earned 23 minutes off the bench, as well as coach Mike D'Antoni's penchant for running small lineups with P.J. Tucker at center, likely minimizes Hilario's role despite the extended absence of Clint Capela (thumb).

      Okafor contributed 20 points (9-11 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 35 minutes during Monday's win over Memphis.

      With Anthony Davis sidelines with a sprained left finger, Okafor was able to record his first double-double of the season while playing his most minutes this year. It's unclear whether coach Alvin Gentry will opt to continue starting Okafor, but as long as Davis remains out, he'll have moderate value in standard formats due to the slim frontcourt depth of the Pelicans.

      Pelicans' Julius Randle: Complete line in win
      6h ago

      Randle generated 20 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-11 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists and two steals across 27 minutes Monday against the Grizzlies.

      The only blemish on Randle's line were his seven turnovers, which tied a season high. Otherwise, the fifth-year pro continued his strong season, notching his 23rd double-double in what has become a career best year. Randle has handled to frontcourt pairing with Anthony Davis and Nikola Mirotic admirably, and has firmly grabbed the starting job from Mirotic. Through 45 games, Randle's averaging 20.1 points --a career high -- 9.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists, while shooting 54.4 percent from the floor, 32.6 percent from three and 73.7 percent from the line in 29.5 minutes per game.

      Muscala managed two points (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one block in 24 minutes during Monday's 121-93 win over the Rockets.

      Muscala was quiet despite earning the most minutes among the six 76ers reserves who saw the court. His ability to stretch the defense while providing some interior help defensively has helped him become Joel Embiid's primary backup big man, and Muscala even shares the floor with the star center here and there. Muscala isn't filling up the stat sheet most nights, but he is maintaining a career high minutes average, so if his shots start falling more often, his value in deep leagues could eventually receive a boost.

      Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Scores 21 off bench

      Mirotic amassed 21 points (6-15 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, two blocks, a steal and an assist in 32 minutes Monday against Memphis.

      Mirotic played his most minutes since returning from an ankle injury that kept him out for 12 straight games. He's struggled with an inconsistent shot since his return, but appears to be finding his touch and has now scored in double-digits in three straight appearances. It's unclear if Mirotic will continue to come off the bench going forward but either way he's dialed into a large enough role to produce relevant fantasy value. In 30 games this year, Mirotic is averaging 16.7 points, 8.4 rebounds and 2.6 threes in 28.9 minutes per game.

    • Kenneth Faried HOU PF
      Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Scores 13 points in Monday's loss

      Faried finished with 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and six rebounds in 23 minutes during Monday's 121-93 loss to the 76ers.

      Faried earned nearly three times as many minutes as Nene Hilario, who drew the start at center in this one. Hilario picked up three fouls across eight minutes and was unable to stay on the floor for long. Meanwhile, Faried struggled with foul trouble too, committing four personals. With that being said, Faried is more mobile than Hilario, which likely gives him a slight edge during matchups against teams with dominant big men. Nevertheless, coach Mike D'Antoni is also comfortable going small and running P.J. Tucker at center for extended stretches, so Faried is likely best reserved for deep leagues unless or until he proves otherwise.

      Moore scored six points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and accumulated 12 rebounds along with an assist over 27 minutes Saturday against Iowa.

      While Moore's scoring output was unimpressive, he cleaned up on the boards, finishing tied for the team lead with 12 rebounds. He also displayed decent shot selection, knocking down three of six attempts from the field. The 6-8 forward has pieced together a strong season to this point, averaging 13.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.3 steals through 27 games.

      Morris struggled in the starting role of late, having averaged 7.5 points over his last four games, but his output Monday night puts him right back on track with where he was performing before the mini slump. Morris should be a solid source of points and rebounds moving forward.

      That's now six double-doubles in the last eight games for Collins, who's averaging 19.6 points, 10.9 boards, 2.1 assists and 0.9 three-pointers over that stretch. The 21-year-old's game is growing by leaps and bounds, and the Hawks will continue to give him plenty of court time to aid his development.

      Chandler finished with a season high rebounding total while sinking every one of his field-goal attempts. He hasn't been able to make an impact on a consistent basis this season, especially offensively. Nevertheless, barring a big roster shakeup, Chandler seems locked into a starting role thanks to his status as one of the team's most versatile defenders.

      Brewer started in place of Jimmy Butler (wrist) and played well, hounding James Harden defensively for most of the contest. Butler's injury isn't expected to keep him sidelined long. With that being said, if Butler remains out for Wednesday's matchup with the Spurs, Brewer could be in line to draw another start, as the 76ers will be looking to keep DeMar DeRozan in check.

Ennis missed 10 games in December with a calf injury, and he hasn't been able to deliver much consistency this season overall. With that being said, his defensive ability will likely continue to help him earn decent playing time, though his appeal is limited to deeper leagues.

      Mitchell was remarkable once again, and he has scored at least 30 points in four of the last seven games. He had scored 30 points or more four times through his first 37 appearances this season, and this recent stretch of solid play has helped the Jazz climb back into the playoff picture. Ricky Rubio returned to the lineup following a six-game absence with a strained hamstring, but the veteran point guard came off the bench in this one. It's unclear whether Mitchell's recent rise taking place without Rubio is merely a coincidence, is based on improved offensive spacing, or simply the result of having more time with the ball in his hands. Nevertheless, Mitchell will look to keep the momentum rolling in the right direction during Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets.

      Hield turned in a disappointing final line by his standards, finishing well below his season scoring average on 40.0 percent shooting from the field. He did knock down three attempts from beyond the arc, however, hitting at a 50.0 percent clip. The 26-year-old guard is averaging 22.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists over his previous five matchups and will face a tough Toronto defense Tuesday in the second half of a back-to-back.

      Rivers had earned less than 30 minutes just once through his first 13 appearances with the Rockets. However, his offensive struggles combined with the lopsided score resulted in Rivers seeing his second-lowest minute total since joining the team. With Chris Paul (hamstring) potentially returning to the lineup by the end of the week, Rivers is likely set to see his role reduced going forward.

      Apart from his uncharacteristically bad free-throw shooting, Holiday had a solid all-around game, recording his 14th double-double of the season and first of 2019. He's hit just 10 of his past 20 attempts from the line which is concerning, although it's likely Holiday will regress to the mean soon.

      Conley had a strong game, tallying his most steals this year and topping 20 point for the sixth time in 2019. Although the Grizzlies have been falling in the standings, Conley remains one of the steadiest contributors at point guard and should remain so as long as he can avoid injury.
