According to Magic official team reporter John Denton, Jonathan Isaac "will resemble a small forward on offense and a power forward defensively" this season.

Denton has worked for the Magic for years, and he adds that Aaron Gordon will be more of a small forward on defense and a power forward on offense. Of course, offensive positions can be viewed as arbitrary assignments, but this makes sense after we saw how much Isaac handled the ball on the wing in Las Vegas. If his offensive game is even halfway decent, Isaac could have a breakout season based on his per-minute output in defensive stats.

Victor Oladipo (sore right knee) is listed questionable on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

Oladipo has yet to miss a game this season, and this is the first time he's had any issues with his right knee since last December, when he was sidelined for a handful of contests. 'Dipo was not his usual explosive self on Friday, when he scored a season-low eight points on 3-of-12 shooting in a win over the Heat. It's possible that he was slowed by the sore knee. Stay tuned for an update on his status later this afternoon. If Oladipo is unable to play, Tyreke Evans would likely be inserted into the starting lineup at SG, which would make him an intriguing DFS/streaming option. Cory Joseph could see an uptick in playing time at SG as well.

Eric Bledsoe scored a game-high 25 points vs. the Bulls on Friday with six assists, four rebounds, one block, three steals and three triples in 30 minutes.

Chicago's defense was very generous tonight (and all season), as Bledsoe, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton combined for 71 points in the 123-104 win. Bledsoe has picked things up after a slow start with 18.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.8 triples in his last five games, hitting an absurd 58.1% from the field in that span.

Khris Middleton nearly triple-doubled vs. the Bulls on Friday with 23 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two triples in 33 minutes.

He was a +18 in the blowout, finishing 9-of-15 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line. Middleton has been on a tear over his last three games with 21, 25 and 23 points on a combined 58.1% shooting, and he's knocking on the door of top-15 value in standard leagues after a cold stretch in early November.
Nov 16 - 11:54 PM

Justin Holiday scored a season-high 20 points vs. the Bucks on Friday, hitting 7-of-12 shots and 6-of-9 triples.

He also added three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 28 minutes. The Bucks were allowing the second most 3-pointers to opponents entering Friday’s game, so this was a great spot for Holiday. He has alternated single-digit and double-digit point games over his past five outings, but has played at least 32 minutes in eight straight games. You could do a lot worse with your last roster spot in a standard league.

Anthony Davis had one of his patented gems during a 129-124 win over the Knicks on Friday, scoring a season-high 43 points with 17 boards, five assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

It was a monster game as AD led the Pels to a 19-point comeback win at home. He is on one of his heaters again and that elbow injury is clearly behind him. Over his last five games, Davis is averaging 31.0 points, 15.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game to become the first NBA player to average 30/15/5 over a 5-game span since Karl Malone from March 16-24, 1988. He could be the No. 1 player going forward.
Nov 16 - 11:39 PM

De'Aaron Fox scored 23 points with 10 assists, four rebounds, two steals, one triple and six turnovers in 36 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Friday.

Fox hit 8-of-17 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line and continues to show incredible growth from his rookie season. This was his fourth double-double of the season, and he's slowly but surely climbing the rankings in category leagues -- he's ranked 59th in 9-cat leagues and 32nd in 8-cat. He's been one of the best value picks in fantasy basketball and is a big reason why the Kings have a winning record.

Kyrie Irving took over late en route to a 123-116 overtime win over the Raptors on Friday, scoring a season-high 43 points with two rebounds, 11 assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

It's the third time he's hit 40 in a Celtics uniform and he needed just 26 attempts from the field and four free throw attempts to get there. Irving went off in the fourth with 19 points in that frame and talked about what it's like being in the zone after the game. "It’s pretty peaceful," Irving said. The Celtics do get a back-to-back set on Saturday, so Irving's fantasy owners may just want to make sure he's ready to go against the Jazz on Saturday.
Nov 16 - 10:52 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 31 points with 15 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two turnovers in 43 minutes during a 123-116 overtime loss in Boston on Friday.

The 43 minutes jump out and his fantasy owners should plan on him sitting out for Saturday in Chicago. Coach Nick Nurse would not commit to Leonard playing in that road game, but the Raptors have usually revealed his status in pre-game media talks at least 90 minutes before tip. Leonard has been a first-round player per game, but there's no word of him getting his back-to-back limit dropped any time soon.
Nov 16 - 10:42 PM

Jaren Jackson Jr. scored a career-high 27 points (11-of-16 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds, four steals, two blocks and one triple in 31 minutes vs. the Kings on Friday.

This is the kind of mouth-watering upside JJJ has, yet he just turned 19 two months ago. Fouls were an issue again tonight, as coach J.B. Bickerstaff pulled him with five minutes to go when the rookie picked up his fifth. We can't imagine that JJJ will cede the starting job when JaMychal Green (mouth) gets back, but stranger things have happened and we're talking about a coach who started Chandler Parsons on opening night. Either way, JJJ's fantasy arrow is pointing straight up.

Jimmy Butler impressed the Philly crowd in his home debut on Friday, making 12-of-15 from the field for 28 points with three rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It was a star performance and Butler came through on his promise after a 14-point debut. "Next game, I guarantee I'm going to know a lot more than I did this game," he said on Wednesday. Butler has been a terrific off-ball player with a whopping 77.8% of his buckets coming off an assist, and he's not dribbling nearly as much. There were some questions last year about how he would co-exist with the Wolves stars, so Butler's fantasy owners shouldn't be worried about him this time because he does so many things.
Nov 16 - 10:27 PM

Donovan Mitchell made 13-of-35 from the field for 31 points with two rebounds, one block, four steals and one 3-pointer during a 113-107 loss in Philly on Friday.

The Philly fans were booing him every time he touched the ball and apparently didn't forget about Mitchell's rookie sweatshirt. His 43.8 usage rate matches his career-high, and perhaps taking just nine shots in a brutal loss to Dallas on Wednesday -- their 68 points was the fewest since 2016. He's been a fantasy letdown to this point, but Mitchell should find his rhythm at some point in the near future.
