Garrett Temple hit 8-of-13 shots and a career-high six 3-pointers to tie his career high of 23 points with two rebounds and one assist off the bench in Monday's loss to the Suns.

The Kings rolled with their bench after falling behind and nearly everyone on it went off tonight, including Temple. His previous season high was eight points and other than stealing the ball, he hadn't been at all impressive coming into this game. But he was great tonight and may have earned some more minutes going forward. But with Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic in front of him on the depth chart, there's no reason to get too excited about Temple right now.

Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) made his NBA debut, played 25 minutes off the Kings' bench and hit 5-of-15 shots for 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in Monday's loss to the Suns.

The Suns went up big in the first half and the Kings rolled with their bench the rest of the way, allowing guys like Bogdanovic, Skal Labissiere, Garrett Temple and De'Aaron Fox to post some big numbers. Bogdanovic isn't likely to steal Buddy Hield's job or even take many of his minutes right away, but he did turn some heads and likely earned more playing time going forward. He's a deep league pickup and could also be added in 12-team leagues if they run deep. Hield still has a grip on the starting job, but it's not crazy to think that Bogdanovic could be the Kings' best wing player after Christmas. Just keep in mind that the Kings ditched their starters and the subs led a furious comeback, which isn't likely to happen on most nights.

Mike James' first career start couldn't have gone any better, as he led the Suns to their first win of the season on Monday vs. the Kings with 18 points (8-of-10 FGs), seven assists, two rebounds, two triples and four turnovers.

He played 27 minutes compared to 21 for Tyler Ulis and did more than enough to keep his job. Eric Bledsoe has already played his last game as a member of the Suns, but it's going to be interesting to see if they get a point guard back in a potential trade. For now, James has to be picked up in all leagues until we see how this all plays out.

Rookie PG De'Aaron Fox came off the bench for 30 minutes on Monday and hit 7-of-16 shots and 5-of-6 free throws for a career-high 19 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals in a tough loss to the Suns.

Wow. George Hill was dreadful for the second straight game, the Suns were up big and the Kings just rolled with their bench for much of the second half. Fox was great tonight and while he likely hasn't taken over the starting job from Hill, he's certainly applying some pressure. We're probably looking at a true timeshare going forward and it's time that Fox is owned in all leagues. If you need a point guard and recently picked up a guy like Jerryd Bayless, go get him.

Josh Jackson scored a career-high 15 points in Monday's 117-115 win over the Kings.

The Suns basically used a two-man rotation at every position, so Jackson and Warren split the small forward minutes down the middle (24 each). The rookie shot 6-of-8 from the field and hit both of his free throws, adding five rebounds, one assists, two steals and a 3-pointer compared to four points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks for Warren. The Suns will eventually find a way to get these guys on the court together, but for now it looks like a timeshare. The rookie will have some off nights, so treat him like a stash.
Oct 24 - 1:21 AM

Skal Labissiere played 28 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-10 shots for a season-high 17 points, four rebounds and a block. He also hit all five of his free throws.

The Kings fell behind the Suns early and ran with their second unit for most of the second half. They waged an impressive comeback that fell short, but Labissiere turned some heads in this one. Zach Randolph is still the starter, but Skal is averaging 15 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks over his last two games. He's not a must-own player yet, but if you need a big man, now is probably a good time to scoop him up.

Marquese Chriss moved into the starting lineup under new head coach Jay Triano on Monday vs. the Kings and looked rejuvenated, scoring 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting before fouling out in the final minute.

He logged 29 minutes with all of them coming at power forward with the Suns switching back to a traditional lineup. When asked about his promotion to the first unit, Chriss said he was "glad" and that it was "about time." He showcased his upside with six rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two 3-pointers, rewarding his owners who had the patience to hang onto him. If he was dropped in your league, do what you got to do to get him on your roster.

Nikola Jokic, who started the season off by hitting 3-of-13 shots and scoring a total of seven points in his first two games, broke out against the Wizards on Monday by hitting 9-of-14 shots for 29 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.

Whew. Owners were squirming, wondering if they burned a first-round pick on a dud, but it was only a matter of time before this would happen. Jokic is easily one of the best centers in fantasy and should continue to build on tonight's performance, although a block would have been nice. Hopefully you didn't do anything crazy with him before tonight's breakout.

Danny Green had a monster night vs. Toronto on Monday with 17 points, eight rebounds, three 3-pointers and five blocks in 34 minutes.

The five blocks matched his career-high. Green was a headache to own in the previous two seasons, but he was a top-24 player in 2014 with several nights like this. He's balling right now with averages of 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 2.3 blocks and 2.3 triples, but we all know he's just as likely to score 20 as he is finishing scoreless. Ride him while he's hot, but expect a dip in production when Kawhi Leonard (quad) eventually returns.

Dejounte Murray had one of the best games of his NBA career in Monday's 101-97 win over the Raptors, scoring 16 points with 15 rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes.

He tied the franchise record for boards by a guard and is just the second guard in Spurs history with 15+ points and 15+ rebounds in a game -- Manu Ginobili had 34 points and 15 rebounds back in 2008. Murray finished 6-of-12 from the field and 4-of-6 from the line and it's easy to see why the Spurs believe he's the PG of the future. San Antonio has no need to rush Tony Parker (quad) back with Murray playing like this.
Oct 23 - 11:47 PM

Eric Gordon scored a season-high 27 points in Monday's loss to Memphis, adding seven assists, four rebounds and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

Gordon also played a handful of minutes at point guard in relief of James Harden, and considering how well he did tonight, we may see more of that going forward until Chris Paul (knee) returns in a few weeks. Gordon hit 8-of-20 shots and 6-of-7 from the line, and he's off to a hot start to the season with 23.5 points and 2.5 triples per game. He's a must-start player until further notice.
