Danny Green scored five points on 2-of-6 shooting during Sunday's blowout win over the Lakers, to go with one rebound, one assist, one 3-pointer, three steals and one block in 20 minutes.
The scoring comes and goes with Green, but his averages of 1.9 triples, 1.8 dimes, 1.0 steal, 0.8 blocks and just 1.1 turnovers per game have him working with a top-100 evaluation in standard leagues. He’s no the most exciting guy to own in head-to-head leagues, although he does see a nice boost in the roto-format.
Cory Joseph will earn another start on Sunday with Kyle Lowry (wrist) unavailable.
Joseph had 11 points, six assists and three steals in 36 minutes on Friday, and the playing time should be very high again tonight. He's a fine streaming and DFS option, and is worth a look everywhere while Lowry is on the shelf.
Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points on 9-of-18 shooting on Sunday, to go with three boards, one assist, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in 26 minutes.
Leonard tied his career-high for most points scored in a single quarter by dropping 16 points during the first quarter of action, and he would have had an even more impressive stat line had this game not been a massive blowout. This was San Antonio's fourth straight win, and with the way they've been playing, it would be shocking if they didn't secure the No. 2 seed out West.
LaMarcus Aldridge scored 16 points on 8-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with nine rebounds, one assist and no other statistics through 23 minutes of floor time.
Aldridge hasn’t been anything more than a mid-round guy this year, and the presence of Pau Gasol essentially guarantees he won’t be jumping into the early-round equation as he’s forced to split touches with his frontcourt running mate. We’re not expecting a second-half explosion this year.
Domantas Sabonis will remain in the starting five for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
Sabonis is clinging to his starting job in OKC, but it feels like only a matter of time until Taj Gibson overtakes him for the starting four-spot. Sabonis is only averaging 6.1 points, 3.8 boards and not much else this season, so he can't be considered a viable target in most leagues despite the starter designation.
Victor Oladipo (back) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Pelicans.
Oladipo is currently going through his pregame routine and a decision on his status will be made once that's complete. For what it's worth, Dipo was reportedly walking very lightly after sitting down following his pregame workout, so he may be a bit closer to doubtful. If he's out, Alex Abrines will have another opportunity to start. Stay tuned.
The Hawks have agreed to waive Lamar Patterson as he attends to a personal situation.
He was a negligible part of the Hawks rotation, so him getting waived has no barring in fantasy hoops.
Victor Oladipo (back) was spotted going through a pregame workout, but his status for Sunday's game against the Pelicans remains unclear.
Oladipo was forced to spend Friday's game on the sidelines, and only managed to get in a light practice on Saturday, so he's likely headed for a game-time call tonight. Owners will need to check back closer to tip-off for an official update, but if he's out, Alex Abrines would likely draw the start and he'd be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS after putting up 19 points and five triples his last time out. Stay tuned.
