Devin Booker, unprompted, admitted that he's "a step slow" after return from a hamstring injury in early November.

"I'm a step slow right so getting everyone else involved is my go-to. I think it’s good, I think it’ll be fine," Booker said. "It’s a thing that takes time. Just getting back used to it and trusting it." He has now dished out double-digit assists in two straight games as he works his way back to full health. Hamstrings are notoriously tricky, so hopefully Booker is able to get to full strength soon.

Eric Gordon scored 17 points (4-of-13 FGs) with one rebound, a season-high five assists, and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

Gordon is back to being the main man off the bench with Carmelo Anthony likely out of the picture. He's been averaging 14.2 points and 2.6 triples over his last five games, but doing so on just 33% from the field and 26% from deep. It's only a matter of time before he catches fire.
Nov 18 - 12:18 AM

Gerald Green scored 17 points (6-of-10 FG) with one rebound and a season-high five 3-pointers against the Kings on Saturday.

Green only needed 14 minutes to light it up in this one. With Carmelo Anthony out of the picture, Green will see more consistent minutes off the bench. Still, he'll only see minutes in the mid-to-low teens, making him more of a deep league-only guy.
Nov 18 - 12:10 AM

Paul George lit up the Suns with 32 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals and three blocks during Saturday's road win.

George made 9-of-22 FGs and 11-of-11 FTs tonight, with three 3-pointers. He's scored 32+ points in three straight games and his fantasy owners are loving life without Russell Westbrook, who could return as soon as Monday. We're not even two weeks removed from the revelation that he's playing through a nerve condition in his left foot, which he called 'dead foot', but his elite fantasy value is alive and well.
Nov 18 - 12:10 AM

Chris Paul scored 24 points (7-of-9 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs) with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal, and a career-high matching six 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

Coming into this one, the Rockets carried the lowest FG% as a team. They shot a scorching hot 56% from the field against the Kings and Paul was a big part of that. The Rockets have now won four straight and look to be entering a groove. CP3 is still a stud when healthy.
Nov 18 - 12:08 AM

Steven Adams feasted on Saturday with 26 points (11-of-15 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 10 rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes.

Adams fell one point shy of his career high in scoring and rookie Deandre Ayton couldn't do much to keep him out of the paint -- five of Adams' boards were on the offensive glass. He's simply cruising over the past five games with 20.4 points on 68.8% shooting, 9.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals. He's not blocking many shots lately but owners can't complain in light of his overall production.
Nov 18 - 12:06 AM

Nerlens Noel chipped in four points, six rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 11 minutes vs. Phoenix on Saturday.

This typifies Noel's play for OKC this season. Very low minutes, stats that won't jump out, yet he still finds a way to satisfy fantasy owners with efficiency, defensive stats and some boards. He's just a borderline specialist but makes a terrific handcuff for Steven Adams owners.
Nov 18 - 12:05 AM

Dennis Schroder had 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting, seven assists, five rebounds, four steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes vs. the Suns on Saturday.

Russell Westbrook was out for personal reasons and we're considering him day-to-day. The key is that he went through shootaround and appears to be over the sprained ankle that cost him the previous five games. Schroder's splits as a reserve are worse in most respects, including scoring (-2.2 points), rebounds (-1.8), assists (-1.0), steals (-0.8) and blocks (-0.4). The free ride for fantasy owners is about to end.
Nov 18 - 12:04 AM

Hamidou Diallo was held to one point with four rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes during the first start of his NBA career on Saturday.

Terrance Ferguson (personal) and Alex Abrines (illness) were both out tonight, so OKC turned to Diallo to pick up some of the slack. He was an afterthought offensively and only took one shot, but we never expected to see much scoring. The Thunder are cruising at 10-5 despite Russell Westbrook's frequent DNPs, which means Diallo isn't likely to be 'unleashed' any time soon.
Nov 18 - 12:04 AM

James Harden scored 34 points (10-of-17 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs) with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

Harden is now averaging 29.6 points over his last five games as he and the Rockets finally look to be in a groove. It was only a matter of time before the MVP rounded into form.
Nov 18 - 12:04 AM

Clint Capela scored 23 points (11-of-14 FGs, 1-of-3 FTs) with 16 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and four blocks in 35 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

Before Capela this year, the last Rocket to record at least 10 point/rebound double-doubles within the team's first 15 games of a season was Charles Barkley with 10 in 1996-97. He's now averaging 17.4 points and 11.8 rebounds over his last five games.
Nov 17 - 11:58 PM

De'Anthony Melton failed to score in 10 minutes off the Suns' bench on Saturday, contributing three rebounds and one steal with two turnovers.

We've only written about Melton a few times this season, mostly about G League assignments, and this encapsulates the reason why. He's a work in progress and although he could emerge as a rotation player as the season continues, he's far off the fantasy map right now.
