Mason Plumlee returned to action on Sunday November 19.

Nov 20 - 2:54 AM

Josh Hart was signed by LAK on Sunday November 19.

Nov 20 - 2:54 AM

Jamal Murray was quiet during Sunday's loss to the Lakers, scoring 10 points on 2-of-11 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs, with four rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

Murray missed all of his 3-point attempts tonight, but he added two steals and one block. There's nothing to worry about here -- Murray had scored 30+ points in two of his previous three games, and he's always one game away from an explosive performance.
Nov 20 - 1:13 AM

Kyle Kuzma finished Sunday's win vs. the Nuggets with 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting, three 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

Luke Walton reportedly "challenged Kuzma to focus on his all-around game" prior to this contest, and he yanked him early tonight after some ill-advised shots. The playing time was easily Kuzma's lowest in November, but nothing suggests this will become a trend. He'll clear 30 minutes vs. the Bulls on Tuesday and remains a solid option in almost every fantasy format, despite a lack of defensive stats.
Nov 20 - 12:54 AM

Lonzo Ball posted the second triple-double of his NBA career on Sunday with 11 points, 16 rebounds, 11 assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

The Lakers snapped a two-game losing streak tonight and Ball continues to be a fantasy dynamo, with the glaring exception of percentages (30.8% FGs and 46.2% FTs). In every other respect he's been awesome, averaging 6.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.1 threes and 0.9 blocks. His fantasy value hinges on each league's scoring settings -- if you can ignore percentages, the 20-year-old is already a stud.

Kenneth Faried came off the bench on Sunday for two points and three rebounds in nine minutes.

Nikola Jokic was ejected early and Paul Millsap (wrist) didn't play after halftime, but it was guys like Mason Plumlee and Trey Lyles who benefited the most. That speaks volumes about Faried's lack of fantasy appeal in Denver.
Nov 20 - 12:47 AM

Julius Randle lit up the Nuggets on Sunday for a season-high 24 points on 11-of-18 shooting, hitting one 3-pointer with seven rebounds, five assists and two turnovers.

Randle played 32 minutes, after logging just 16 minutes vs. Phoenix on Friday, and after the game coach Luke Walton said, "When [Randle] plays like he did tonight, he's as good as anyone in this league]." Nikola Jokic (ejection) and Paul Millsap (wrist) were both out after halftime tonight, and Randle deserves credit for taking advantage of the situation, but we're skeptical since Kyle Kuzma is playing well at PF and Larry Nance (hand) is due back soon.
Nov 20 - 12:46 AM

Mason Plumlee started the second half of Sunday's game in place of Nikola Jokic (ejection), finishing with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 30 minutes.

Jokic's ejection was questionable, at best, and there's almost no way that he'll face further punishment from the league. As such, there's no reason to think Plumlee will help fantasy owners vs. the Kings on Monday. He made 4-of-6 shots tonight, but emphasized one of his fantasy weaknesses with a 2-of-10 mark at the FT line.
Nov 20 - 12:40 AM

Will Barton started the second half of Sunday's game in place of Paul Millsap (wrist), finishing with 12 points, five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

Millsap had X-rays on his wrist and the results haven't been announced, but either way Barton should already be owned. He's quietly racking up mid-round value (8-cat and 9-cat) in under 30 minutes per game, which should be sustainable all season.
Nov 20 - 12:39 AM

Trey Lyles took advantage of expanded minutes with Paul Millsap (wrist) leaving early on Sunday, posting 10 points, eight rebounds and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes.

Lyles has scored more than five points just twice this season, but he'd be worth a speculative pickup if Millsap is ruled out for an extended period. To be clear, Millsap is just day-to-day as we await test results, so there's no immediate value to be found here.
Nov 20 - 12:28 AM

Gary Harris made 7-of-13 shots including four 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing a loss vs. the Lakers with a team-high 20 points in 33 minutes of action

Harris added three rebounds and one block, and his scoring ability became even more important with Nikola Jokic getting ejected in the second quarter tonight. His recent shoulder injury is a non-factor since he's been hyper-efficient with 66.7% shooting over the past two games (4.0 triples per game). Harris is rolling along as a top-50 roto value.
Nov 20 - 12:27 AM

Paul Millsap (left wrist) had X-rays taken after leaving Sunday's game in the first half, but the results aren't yet known.

Millsap didn't play after halftime on Sunday, but Denver was trailing by more than 20 points so hopefully this isn't a long-term issue. The X-rays results should be disclosed soon. If Millsap does miss time, Trey Lyles should gain the most, with guys like Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee also picking up the slack.
Nov 20 - 12:14 AM

Paul Millsap exited Sunday's game with a left wrist sprain, finishing with five points, four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes.

Millsap headed into the locker room and emerged with his wrist taped in the first half, but Will Barton replaced him in the starting lineup after halftime. This could be a simple precaution, especially since Nikola Jokic was ejected early and Denver trailed by 22 points at halftime, but we'll consider Millsap questionable for Monday's road game in Sacramento.
Nov 19 - 11:28 PM

Lauri Markkanen was terrific vs. Phoenix on Sunday, hitting 10-of-18 shots with four 3-pointers for 26 points, 13 rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes.

The Bulls' prized rookie has been an amazing value for fantasy owners, coming in with averages of 14.8 points, 2.5 triples, 7.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.6 blocks and just 1.3 turnovers. He's shot 82.4% from the line, which has made up for 43.7% from the field, and the sky is the limit if tonight's efficiency becomes a trend.
Nov 19 - 11:13 PM

Cristiano Felicio played 12 minutes on Sunday, finishing with three points, two assists and one rebound.

Felicio has played at least 10 minutes in every game this season, but he's nowhere near holding fantasy value -- even his 60.0 percent shooting is unimportant, because he's attempted a mere 3.1 shots per game. He's only worth a look in dynasty leagues.
