Kosta Koufos made all six of his field goals for 16 points to go with nine boards and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 117-97 loss to the Thunder.

He played 26 minutes per game in his last 11 games, but he's turned in some nice lines over that span. Koufos has been productive in his three previous games and averaged 12.3 points, 5.3 boards and 1.3 steals. He should be owned in all standard leagues.

Jeremy Lin suffered a patellar tendon rupture on Wednesday and will miss the rest of season according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Buddy Hield looked good in 33 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-17 shots with three 3-pointers for 19 points, five rebounds and four assists.

The second-year SG added one steal with two turnovers in 33 minutes. This could give him a leg up on injured Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) for the starting job, if nothing else, and it's a solid start to the 2017-18 season for everyone who gambled on him in the late rounds.

Clint Capela piled up 22 points, 17 rebounds, three steals, one block and one assist in 28 minutes vs. the Kings, making 10-of-12 field goals and both of his free throws.

Capela did this without Chris Paul's passing genius on the court tonight, and he's set up for a tremendous fantasy season. He's a natural source of boards and defensive stats, and his scoring should overwhelmingly be of the high-percentage variety on lobs and putbacks. Congrats to those with the foresight to draft him.

LaMarcus Aldridge continued his impressive run on Wednesday with 25 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes vs. the Wolves.

Aldridge looked great all preseason, San Antonio recently inked him to a three-year extension, and Gregg Popovich took the blame for LA's struggles since joining the Spurs -- "He just didn’t feel comfortable and it’s 98.75% on me." The offense is now geared toward giving Aldridge room to operate in his comfort zones, mostly at the elbow, but owners should still expect a dip once Kawhi Leonard (quad) gets back on the court.

Pat Connaughton scored a career-high 24 points against the Suns on Wednesday with two rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Just a few months ago there was some talk that Connaughton would switch to baseball, so apparently he made the right call. Although, it helped the Blazers picked up his $1.4 million option in August. Great story aside, he'll lose most of his minutes when C.J. McCollum comes off suspension to face the Pacers on Friday.

Rodney Hood (illness) didn't start on Wednesday, and he finished with just six points, two boards and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.

A stomach bug caused Hood to stay in the locker room to begin the game, but his starting role should be safe despite Utah's affinity for rookie guard Donovan Mitchell. We're chalking up Hood's low playing time to the illness, and will let you know if there's more to the story. In case it's not clear, Hood is a definite 'hold' everywhere.

Grizzlies rookie Dillon Brooks went off in his debut on Wednesday, scoring 19 points with five rebounds, four steals, two assists and two blocks in 29 minutes off the bench.

Brooks showed flashes of potential in the preseason, but nothing suggested he'd post a well-rounded fantasy line in his NBA debut. JaMychal Green's early exit opened up the rotation, and starters James Ennis and Andrew Harrison did little to advance their own cause tonight, so credit to the rookie for taking full advantage. Grab him if you have a likely roster spot, but don't cut a reliable player for him after one (very) nice game.
Oct 19 - 1:51 AM

DeMarcus Cousins blocked a career-high seven shots during Wednesday's season-opening loss, adding 28 points, 10 rebounds, three 3-pointers and a pair of assists.

Alvin Gentry emphasized that he wants to deploy Cousins and Anthony Davis together as often as possible this season, despite the league's shift toward smaller lineups. For fantasy purposes, they've already proven that they can co-exist as elite options, and Boogie's owners can't have asked for more than a career-high in blocks on opening night. He's healthy and ready to roll.
Oct 19 - 1:48 AM

Anthony Davis (strep throat) had 33 points, 18 rebounds, one 3-pointer and one block vs. Memphis on Wednesday, making 9-of-23 field goals and 14-of-17 free throws in 40 minutes.

The Pelicans were supposedly watching AD's minutes, but his illness obviously didn't limit him. He did take a hit to his left leg tonight, causing some scary moments for fantasy owners, but he never left the game. This is a pristine example of his fantasy upside, especially if he continues to knock down free throws -- he's never shot better than 80.5 percent in a season, but recently sank 22-of-23 freebies in a preseason game.
Oct 19 - 1:47 AM

Dennis Schroder scored 28 points with two rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

His usage splits were a lot higher while Paul Millsap was on the bench last year and he saw a nice increase during the preseason, so making 13-of-26 from the field really isn't a surprise. He shredded the Mavs defense with plenty of drives and he'll be asked to lead this team in scoring. Schroder may have nights when he misses a number of shots, but Schroder could have a career season.
Oct 19 - 1:41 AM

Gordon Hayward (left leg surgery) is unlikely to return this season, according to his agent.

Hayward had surgery on Wednesday to repair his dislocated and fractured left tibia. "We expect him to make a full recovery and return to his All-Star form," said his agent, Mark Bartelstein. It's a sad turn of events and we wish Hayward a speedy recovery. In his absence, the Celtics are expected to start Marcus Smart while relying more on a slew of players including Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris and Terry Rozier. Swingman Abdel Nader, a second-round pick in 2016, was actually the Celts' first man off the bench on Wednesday.
