Mike Conley hit 8-of-17 shots, 3-of-9 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws for 24 points, two rebounds and eight assists in Monday's 116-108 loss to the Lakers. 


Aug 04   12:09 AM

Conley looks to be back to the form we were hoping for after struggling early in the season. The break served him well and he's averaging 18.7 points and 5.3 assists in his three bubble games thus far. Feel free to roll with him in DFS going forward. 


Donovan Mitchell hit 9-of-22 shots, 4-of-10 3-pointers and 11-of-12 free throws for 33 points, five rebounds and four assists in 35 minutes of Monday's 116-108 loss to the Lakers. 


Aug 04   12:09 AM

Mitchell tweaked an ankle late in the game but played through it and it doesn't look like anything to worry about. This was Mitchell's best game in the bubble after scoring 13 and 20 points in his first two games. 


Jordan Clarkson hit just 2-of-13 shots and 1-of-9 3-pointers for six points and not much else in Monday's loss to the Lakers. 


Aug 04   12:09 AM

Clarkson scored 23 in the bubble opener and had 11 more points on Saturday, but couldn't buy a bucket on Monday. He should bounce back against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, but he was a DFS buzzkill tonight. 


Royce O'Neale started and played through his right foot injury on Monday and had five points, 13 rebounds, five assists, four steals and a 3-pointer on 2-of-7 shooting in a loss to the Lakers. 


Aug 03   11:53 PM

He was probable so it's not surprising that he played, but it is a little surprising that he had 13 boards and four steals. He should continue to start for the Jazz going forward and is worth a cheap look in DFS action. 


DeMar DeRozan hit 11-of-19 shots, a 3-pointer and 7-of-7 free throws on his way to 30 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in Monday's tough 132-130 loss to the Sixers.


Aug 03   10:59 PM

The Sixers were in control the whole night until the Spurs won the fourth quarter 43-33 behind DeRozan's 13 points. The red hot DeRozan inexplicably passed the ball to Jakob Poeltl (four points in 25 minutes) down one near the buzzer and he was unable to convert a contested layup to secure the win. Rudy Gay scored 24 for the Spurs and Derrick White came on late to chip in with 20 points and four triples in the loss. 


Keldon Johnson came off the bench and hit 4-of-6 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-7 free throws for a career-high 15 points, three rebounds and one assist in Monday's loss to the Sixers.


Aug 03   10:59 PM

Johnson played well off the bench and probably got some extra run with both Marco Belinelli and Bryn Forbes sitting this one out. The Spurs are basically playing for fun at this point and it's possible Gregg Popovich will continue to stick with Johnson going forward. Johnson also played 25 minutes on Sunday, so the minutes have been there for him lately and he made the most of them tonight. 


Ja Morant hit just 5-of-21 shots and 1-of-10 3-pointers for 11 points, five rebounds and eight assists in 39 minutes of Monday's 109-99 loss to the Pelicans.


Aug 03   10:06 PM

Morant surprisingly didn't get to the line tonight and looked sluggish at times. He was a different player on Sunday against the Spurs and will look to recapture the magic against the Jazz on Wednesday. Morant took a Lonzo Ball knee to the groin tonight that bothered him for a few possessions but it looks like he's OK. 


Lonzo Ball hit just 2-of-7 shots (all 3-pointers) and 1-of-2 free throws for seven points, four rebounds, six assists and four steals in 35 minutes of Monday's win over the Grizzlies. 


Aug 03   9:44 PM

Ball was on fire prior to the shutdown but has struggled in the return, averaging just 6.0 points on 6-of-26 shooting. He needs to get it going if the Pelicans are going to win out and try to sneak into the playoffs but his shot's just not working right now. He's tough to trust in DFS right now but could turn it around at any time.


Jrue Holiday hit 6-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in Monday's win over the Grizzlies. 


Aug 03   9:44 PM

He got tangled up with Grayson Allen and tweaked his right ankle but stayed in the game and showed no ill effects after yelling in pain and staying down for a few moments. He should be good to go on Thursday against the Kings. 


Josh Hart played through a hand injury and finished Monday's game with 15 points, seven rebounds and two 3-pointers on 5-of-6 shooting despite hurting his hand in a freak accident during the game. 


Aug 03   9:44 PM

Hart suffered a right hand laceration in a collision with the scorer's plexiglass and appeared to puncture his palm after breaking one of the panels. He was attended to briefly to stop the bleeding and looked good the rest of the way. He should be good to go going forward. 


Jaren Jackson Jr. hit 7-of-17 shots, a couple 3-pointers and 6-of-8 free throws for 22 points, two rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in 31 minutes of Monday's 109-99 loss to the Pelicans. 


Aug 03   9:27 PM

Jonas Valanciunas had 13 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks, making it tough for JJJ to crash the boards but he looked very good against Zion Williamson tonight. He took a scary fall on his right hip in the second half but shook it off and stayed in the game. He looked fine closing out the game and should be good to go for the Jazz on Wednesday. 


Jonas Valanciunas hit 5-of-9 shots for 13 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and four blocks before fouling out of Monday's loss to the Pelicans. 


Aug 03   9:27 PM

JV had a nice double-double tonight and matched his season high in blocks. That makes two straight double-doubles for JV and he's going to have to continue to play well to keep his Grizzlies in the playoff mix. The Pels gained a game on the Grizzlies tonight and Memphis is now 1.5 games up on the Spurs, 2.0 games up on the Blazers and 2.5 games up on New Orleans in the West. 


Ja Morant hit just 5-of-21 shots and 1-of-10 free throws for 11 points, five rebounds and eight assists in 39 minutes of Monday's 109-99 loss to the Pelicans.


Aug 03   9:27 PM

Morant surprisingly didn't get to the line tonight and looked sluggish at times. He was a different player on Sunday against the Spurs and will look to recapture the magic against the Jazz on Wednesday. Morant took a Lonzo Ball knee to the groin tonight that bothered him for a few possessions but it looks like he's OK. 


Grayson Allen hit 6-of-10 shots and five 3-pointers for 17 points, one rebound, two assists and a steal in 31 minutes of Monday's loss to the Pelicans. 


Aug 03   9:27 PM

He did most of his damage in a stellar first half and is averaging 16 points and 3.5 3-pointers over his last two games. It's tough to say if he'll keep it going but he's averaging 29.5 minutes over his last two. If the minutes stick he should be an intriguing and cheap DFS option going forward. 


Shai Gilegeos-Alexander hit 6-of-13 shots, three 3-pointers and 9-of-11 free throws on his way to a game-high 24 points, five rebounds and two assists in Monday's loss to the Nuggets. 


Aug 03   7:21 PM

He didn't have a steal or a block, but played 38 minutes and had an efficient shooting night. He had 19 points and six dimes in his first game in the bubble and is now averaging 21.5 points, 3.5 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals in the bubble. 


Chris Paul had 23 points and eight assists and Steven Adams had nine points and 10 rebounds before fouling out of Monday's loss to the Nuggets. 


Aug 03   7:21 PM

CP3 hit a couple threes and committed five turnovers, while Adams didn't manage a steal or block before becoming disqualified against Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets. Danilo Gallinari chipped in with 20 points and these three, in addition to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, are the only guys you can really trust in terms of fantasy right now. 


Shabazz Napier was demoted to the bench on Monday vs. the Pacers, playing 22 minutes with 16 points, four assists, two rebounds and one triple. 


Aug 03   7:02 PM

Napier entered this game hitting just 27.3% for 8.5 points and 2.5 assists in two starts, so he needed a game like this one. Coach Scott Brooks said before the game that he wanted to see more from Napier, so this performance should keep him heavily involved despite the demotion. We like Ish Smith better for the short term, though. 


Ish Smith moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Pacers and finished with 12 points (5-of-13 FGs), four assists, two rebounds and two triples in 22 minutes. 


Aug 03   7:02 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said he went with Smith over Shabazz Napier just to shake things up, but there's no word if it sticks. We do like Smith better for fantasy purposes, as he was averaging 15.5 points, 6.0 dimes, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 triples in his previous two outings. It's worth noting that Troy Brown Jr. closed this game out at PG, so that's something to watch going forward as that could spell trouble for Smith. 


Troy Brown Jr. accumulated 10 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, two triples and three turnovers in 31 minutes vs. the Pacers on Monday.


Aug 03   7:02 PM

He had a shaky first half but closed this game out strong and even saw some PG reps in crunch time. With only Ish Smith and Shabazz Napier at PG, you'd think the Wizards will let TBJ get more of those reps going forward since that position has been his focus at practice and during the hiatus. Through three games, TBJ has been solid with 15.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.7 dimes, 0.7 steals and 1.0 triples. 


Myles Turner bounced back vs. the Wizards on Monday with 17 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two triples in 33 minutes. 


Aug 03   6:41 PM

Let’s just say Turner wasn’t missing Joel Embiid today. Turner averages a brutal 10.0 points and 5.0 boards in four matchups vs. Philly, so a matchup vs. the Wizards was just what the doctor ordered. With a massive per-minute production boost with Domantas Sabonis (foot) off the court, lines like this one should be the norm for Turner in Orlando.
