George Hill (right groin) will not return on Thursday.

It looked like it was minor with Hill not getting much medical attention after the injury in the first quarter. He slipped on the floor and limped to the bench under his own power. Hill has dealt with a slew of groin injuries in his career, including a right groin strain in April of last year. Hopefully, this is a precaution, but you may want to downgrade Hill a round or two with this news. Frank Mason III has played well and could play more if Hill can't recover.

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.

Dennis Smith Jr. returned from his knee injury and hit 3-of-11 shots and just 4-of-10 free throws for 10 points, six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes.

He also missed both his 3-pointers, but the good news is he played after sitting out a couple games. He struggled tonight, and the six missed FTs are certainly a concern, but he still has a solid handle on the starting point guard job, so don't let this game bring you down. He also tried to dunk on Draymond Green while talking trash, to which Green replied "That s--- ain't happening."

Marc Gasol scored 26 points in Monday's 98-90 win over Houston, hitting 8-of-15 shots and 10-of-10 free throws.

Gasol also grabbed five rebounds with two assists and two blocks, and the only bad news is that he missed all three of his 3-point attempts -- he hit four triples in his previous two games. Gasol was concerned about Memphis' ability to compete in the West prior to the season, but he finds himself on top of the standings with a 3-0 record. Gasol is locked in as a top-10 fantasy center until further notice.

Josh Richardson did a little bit of everything against the Hawks on Monday, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

We're going to see a lot of these lines because Richardson does so many things. He ran the point tonight more than usual in this game, and his blocks weren't cheap ones on a John Collins dunk attempt and another on Taurean Prince. He is sitting at 37 minutes per game, he wants to lead all wings in blocks, he can get hot in a hurry and he's playing three positions, so he checks all the boxes as a must-own breakout candidate.
Oct 23 - 11:03 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo stayed hot on Monday with 32 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, a steal, two blocks and six turnovers on 13-of-21 shooting.

He's now averaging 36.8 points, 10.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.3 steals, 1.3 blocks and a true shooting percentage of 69.6 percent. If you took him with the No. 1 pick in fantasy this season, you're loving life. And if he somehow fell to you at No. 4 or 5, you got a steal.
Oct 23 - 10:56 PM

Taurean Prince matched his career-high 20 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, seven turnovers and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Heat during a 104-93 loss on Monday.

It's a season high in minutes, usage, steals, and a career high in turnovers. Prince is going to get more involved in the offense and the Hawks will need him to produce in transition due to their lack of a go-to scorer. He figures to feast without Dennis Schroder (ankle) this week, so the must-own player gets a little short-term boost.
Oct 23 - 10:53 PM

John Collins scored 14 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and one block in 18 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

He continues to be one of the highest motor players in the NBA and is always looking to set a high ball screen on the offensive end. Collins played all power forward minutes on Sunday, but he was able to get a good amount of minutes at both big spots for this game. With Ersan Ilyasova (knee) banged up and the Hawks slipping in the standings, Collins should be owned in all standard leagues.
Oct 23 - 10:14 PM

Joel Embiid returned from a day of rest and led the 76ers to their first win of the season on Monday vs. Detroit, dropping 30 points in 28 minutes.

He'll probably be capped at 28 minutes for a little while longer, but at least the 76ers don't have another back-to-back set until Nov. 29 and Nov. 30. He toasted Andre Drummond tonight, hitting 11-of-15 shots and 7-of-8 free throws with nine rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers. He'll need to take better care of the ball, but his owners won't care with lines like these.
Oct 23 - 9:47 PM

Ben Simmons posted his first career triple-double in just his fourth NBA game, scoring 21 points with 12 rebounds and 10 assists in Monday's 97-86 win over the Pistons.

This was his best game by far, posting career-highs in points, rebounds and assists with one steal and four turnovers. He was very efficient, hitting 8-of-11 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line and his pick-and-roll chemistry with Joel Embiid was on point. Simmons became just the third player in NBA history to have a triple-double in his first four games and also the first player to go 10-10-5 in each of the first four since the Big O (Oscar Robertson).

Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) is in the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Warriors

DSJ is back after a two-game absence, but there's no word of any restrictions. He joins Yogi Ferrell, Wes Matthews, Harrison Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki in the starting lineup. J.J. Barea will move to the bench and can be dropped in most leagues if DSJ comes out of this game without any setbacks.
Oct 23 - 8:21 PM

Mike James, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Marquese Chriss and Tyson Chandler will start against the Kings on Monday.

Now that Earl Watson is gone, Chriss will get a chance to show what he can do in the first unit. On Saturday, he talked about how he could be taking plays off, and it may have had something to do with him starting. In other words, he should be very motivated tonight and will look to get his season off the ground. He should be owned in standard leagues.
