After scoring a career-high 31 points on Saturday, Troy Daniels came off the Memphis bench on Monday to hit 10-of-20 shots, seven 3-pointers and 2-of-2 free throws for 29 points, two assists and nothing else, which would include only one turnover in 44 minutes.

This kid came out of nowhere and is killing it, scoring 29, 31, 19 and 19 points in each of his last four games, and has knocked down 20 3-pointers during that stretch, which is 5.0 per game! The Money Green light is ON and Daniels is killing it. But he could quickly fall back to earth once Chandler Parson and James Ennis are over their injuries, which may not happen anytime soon. While Daniels is likely to fade just as quickly as he appeared on the scene, he's worth grabbing right now. And if he does it again vs. the Sixers on Tuesday night, we may call him a must-own player until further notice.

Tony Allen hit 9-of-14 shots for 19 points, 14 rebounds, three steals and a block in 42 minutes of Monday's intense 110-108 double-overtime win over the Pelicans.

This was easily the best game of the season for Allen and the two overtimes helped. He had a season high in points, rebounds, minutes, shots and makes, while his previous season highs were just 12 points and nine rebounds. He's averaging 11.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals over his last five, but that number is clearly inflated by tonight's game. Give him a look, but he still doesn't look close to being a must-own player in most instances.
Dec 6 - 12:43 AM

Marc Gasol's crazy season continued on Monday when he had 28 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers on 11-of-25 shooting in 46 minutes of Monday's 110-108 double-overtime win against the Pelicans.

Gasol is insane right now, knocking down threes and flirting with a Russell Westbrook-like line tonight. Gasol, never known for assists or 3-pointers, has hit a three in all but three games this season, and has racked up 19 dimes over his last two games. He's returning third-round value right now, but that arrow appears to be pointing up after this one. And over his last five games? He's averaging 21.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.6 blocks and 2.0 3-pointes on 50 percent shooting.
Dec 6 - 12:37 AM

Jeremy Lamb scored 14 points with five rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 21 minutes against the Mavericks on Monday.

He finished 5-of-10 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line. Lamb has had a few big games since returning in late November, but he's also had some pretty awful duds as well. He's averaging 11.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 triples over his last five games, but he only saw 17.6 minutes per game in that span.
Dec 6 - 12:30 AM

Troy Williams made another start for the Grizzlies and hit 5-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, four rebounds and a steal in Monday's double-overtime 110-108 win over the Pelicans.

Williams has been starting at small forward with James Ennis and Chandler Parsons hurting, but the other Troy, as in Daniels, has been outplaying him. Williams is averaging 8.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2.4 steals, 0.6 3-pointers and is shooting 37 percent over his last five games. He's worth a short-term look, but only in very deep leagues.
Dec 6 - 12:30 AM

JaMychal Green hit just 2-of-5 shots and 1-of-3 free throws for five points on Monday, but also had 15 rebounds and a steal in 43 minutes of Monday's double-overtime win against the Pelicans.

Green has been a pleasant surprise this season, but has been up and down like a yo-yo over his last five games, at least in the scoring category, going for 5, 16, 8, 16 and 2 points. Over that stretch, he's averaging 9.4 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.6 steal and 0.8 blocks on 44 percent shooting. He might take a small hit once Zach Randolph is back from bereavement leave, but Green is someone you want to own either way.
Dec 6 - 12:26 AM

Tarik Black sprained his right ankle on Monday vs. the Jazz and will not return.

He's averaging 15.6 minutes per game off the bench this season, so this doesn't have many fantasy implications. If anything, Thomas Robinson could pick up a handful of minutes if Black misses more time. He finished with seven points, five rebounds and two steals in 12 minutes.
Dec 6 - 12:25 AM

Dwight Powell scored 15 points with seven rebounds in 32 minutes off the bench on Monday vs. Charlotte.

Powell has a huge opportunity in front of him to produce, as Andrew Bogut hyperextended his right knee in the first quarter and wasn't able to return. With Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles) out indefinitely, that means Powell and Salah Mejri will have to hold down the fort if Bogut misses time. Powell added a block and shot 7-of-11 from the field and looks like the better pickup after Mejri logged just eight minutes.
Dec 6 - 12:23 AM

Langston Galloway played 36 minutes off the bench, hit 9-of-19 shots and 6-of-13 3-pointers on his way to a career-best 26 points on Monday.

He only added two assist, but the six 3-pointers were fun. Galloway got the minutes and opportunity because both Jrue Holiday and E'Twaun Moore out with toe injuries. If you happened to take a flier on Galloway tonight, congratulations.
Dec 6 - 12:22 AM

Tim Frazier started with Jrue Holiday out with a toe injury and hit 3-of-10 shots for eight points, four rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 39 minutes of Monday's tough loss to the Grizzlies.

We were hoping for a little more, especially with the two overtimes, but Frazier at least came through with some decent numbers. The Pels are off until Thursday, so there's a pretty good chance Holiday will be back to reclaim his starting job by then.
Dec 6 - 12:19 AM

Deron Williams scored 15 points with 13 assists in Monday's loss to the Hornets.

It's his first double-double of the season, but he's only made a total of 12 appearances so far due to injuries. D-Will shot 6-of-18 from the field with one rebound and a pair of triples in 37 minutes, and coach Rick Carlisle said before the game that the PG has been cleared to consistently play minutes in the 30s. With Seth Curry hobbled by a knee sprain, D-Will is worth riding until the wheels inevitably fall off.
Dec 6 - 12:18 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 29 points on 10-of-21 shooting in Monday's 109-101 loss to the Hornets.

Harry B was everywhere, racking up seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two triples while hitting all seven of his free throws. With the Mavs banged up and possibly tanking, Barnes should be the best fantasy asset in Dallas the rest of the way as the clear focal point of the offense. He's returning top-60 value in standard leagues on the season with averages of 20.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 3-pointer on 45.9 percent shooting.
Dec 6 - 12:14 AM

Anthony Davis had 28 points, 17 rebounds, a steal, four blocks and a 3-pointer on 10-of-27 shooting in 48 minutes of Monday's double-overtime 110-108 loss to the Grizzlies.

He was a little iffy with a foot injury coming in, but obviously looked great. Davis is playing at an incredibly high level and has managed to stay healthy thus far, but we're not even to Christmas yet. If history doesn't lie, Davis is still primed for some kind of leg injury at some point this season. But so far, so good.
Dec 6 - 12:13 AM

Jonas Jerebko started over Amir Johnson on Monday and had six points, five rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

That's basically what he does off the bench, minus the blocks and steal, but he had one of his better games in recent memory with the two 3-pointers. If he sticks in the starting five, give him a look, but this move may have just been based on matching up with the small Rockets.
Dec 6 - 12:05 AM

Eric Gordon tweaked his ankle in Monday's 107-106 win over the Celtics, but he said he's "fine."

He expects to practice onTuesday and play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, but we will put him on the injury report to be safe. Gordon scored 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting in the win with two assists, one rebound, one block and four triples in 31 minutes. He's scored 18 or more points in five straight games and needs to be in all fantasy lineups while he's hot.
