Jeremy Lin (bruised chest) will not play in Game 4 on Monday.

He played just 18 minutes on Saturday and was visibly bothered by his injured chest throughout the game. Francisco Garcia will move into the starting lineup and he's been a pleasant surprise for the Rockets this postseason. Patrick Beverly should also be called upon for more offensive chances, but most the scoring burden will be on James Harden as the Rockets try and extend this series.

Spencer Dinwiddie exploded during a 118-107 win over the Jazz on Friday, scoring a career-high 25 points with five rebounds, eight assists, two steals, six 3-pointers and no turnovers.

We'll save you the time to start this blurb: Dinwiddie needs to be added everywhere. He is the first player in franchise history to record 25-plus points, six-plus 3-pointers made and eight-plus assists with no turnovers in a game. D'Angelo Russell (knee) is expected to miss a good amount of time, so Dinwiddie has the keys to one of the most fantasy-friendly systems out there. He is going to be a difference maker until DAR is back, which could be a long while.

Kris Dunn scored a career-high 22 points vs. the Hornets on Friday with seven assists, five rebounds, three steals and two triples in 26 minutes.

He was back on the bench with Justin Holiday (personal) back in the lineup, but it seems like it's just a matter of time before he takes Jerian Grant's spot. Perhaps the most impressive part of this line was that he finished with one turnover, as he was averaging 3.4 TOs per game prior to Friday. He hit 10-of-16 shots and gets a great chance to build on this performance against the Suns on Sunday.

Allen Crabbe scored 18 points with five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

NBA Twitter has been hard on Crabbe the previous couple years because he wasn't asked to do much outside of defense and make open treys. However, he had some weapons in his arsenal and carved up folks in Las Vegas a few years ago, so it's really not a surprise he's turning the corner as a guy who can get his own shot. With D'Angelo Russell (knee) out for a while, Crabbe will have plenty of opportunity to produce for owners in all standard leagues.

Buddy Hield (ankle) was helped to the locker room in the fourth quarter and he will not return.

He rolled his right ankle as he was trying to put a move on in transition. Hield didn't put weight on his leg at first, but he did put some weight on it as he was helped to the locker room by two staff members. There's a decent chance he misses time from this injury, which means coach Dave Joerger will increase the minutes for several people in his rotation. Bogdan Bogdanovic and Frank Mason may benefit most.

Buddy Hield (ankle) was helped to the locker room in the fourth quarter and he will not return.

He rolled his right ankle as he was trying to put a move on in transition. Hield didn't put weight on his leg at first, but he did put some weight on it as he was helped to the locker room by two staff members. He's almost certainly done tonight, so expect to see

Anthony Davis went to the locker room on Friday vs. the Nuggets after colliding heads with Nikola Jokic.

He's likely going to be tested for a concussion, but we should have the official word soon. The Pelicans are getting toasted heading into the fourth quarter, so they may be cautious even if Davis is OK.

Denzel Valentine started on Friday vs. the Hornets and scored a season-high 18 points with six assists, five rebounds, one block and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

Yeah, there's a good chance Valentine sticks in the first unit. The second-year wing hit 7-of-15 shots and was running the offense quite a bit, helping the Bulls record their third win of the season. Valentine could take a hit when Zach LaVine (knee) returns, but that's not until mid-December and the Bulls need offensive weapons right now. With an awesome matchup coming up against the Suns on Sunday, Valentine is on the radar as a pickup.
Nov 17 - 11:56 PM

Justin Holiday scored a season-high 27 points in Friday's 123-120 win over the Hornets, hitting 10-of-15 shots and 3-of-3 free throws.

He was returning from a one-game absence for personal reasons and finished two points shy of his career-high. Holiday nailed four triples in the win, adding three rebounds, three steals and one block in 36 minutes, Zach LaVine (knee) isn't expected back until mid-December, so there are more good times ahead for Holiday's owners.

Donovan Mitchell made his first NBA start at point guard against the Nets during a 118-107 loss on Friday, scoring 15 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

Those assists are a career high, but he did struggle as a shooter with his 5-of-15 line from the field. Mitchell continues to just blow right by defenders and he did an excellent job of finding open shooters along the 3-point line. Mitchell has made it abundantly clear since he arrived in Las Vegas that he deserves heavy minutes, and yet he's been better than expected. He should be owned in every league and his owners can worry about his sub-par FG% later.
Nov 17 - 11:39 PM

Kemba Walker scored a season-high 47 points (five short of career-high) on Friday, but the Hornets still fell to the Bulls 123-120.

The Hornets are reeling with six straight losses, and coach Steve Clifford said the team has no identity right now -- the Bulls were dead last in offensive efficiency and still put up 123 points. As for Kemba, he was sensational en route to the second-highest point total of his career, hitting 17-of-27 shots with six rebounds, five assists and five triples. The All-Star PG will try to help the Hornets right the ship on Saturday against a Clippers team that has lost seven straight.
Nov 17 - 11:19 PM

Hassan Whiteside made 10-of-12 from the field for 22 points during a 91-88 win in Washington on Friday, adding 16 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He was terrific late in the game as the Wizards almost pulled off a comeback win. After the knee injury derailed his October, Whiteside is on a roll over his last five games with averages of 17.4 points, 15.8 boards, 2.4 blocks and 1.0 steals. He should be around those numbers all season as the team continues to find ways to get him the rock.
