C.J. McCollum scored 25 points during a 102-90 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding three rebounds, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Damian Lillard was also solid with his 22 points, two rebounds, six dimes, one steal, one block and one trey. As for McCollum, he's been one of the league's best shooters with his 50.6 percent from deep to get him to 3.1 triples per game. Compared to last year, his dimes and blocks are down, but his steals and boards are up. McCollum is a top-20 player so far this year and he'll probably stay there.

Jusuf Nurkic scored 14 points with seven rebounds, two assists and four blocks against the Kings on Saturday.

Besides the lack of rebounding, Nurkic is starting to come around lately. In his last five, he averaged 13.4 points, 6.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.4 steals on 43.5 percent from the field. He's also been really bad with his turnovers, ranking fourth among centers with 51 despite only 31 dimes. Nurk is still trending up and he has been healthy, but he's got a lot of work to do to make his owners happy.

Caleb Swanigan moved to the bench and played two minutes against the Kings on Saturday

Sadly, Biggie is out of the rotation and only played in garbage time. Swanigan should find a way to get minutes at some point, but he's an easy drop now.

Ed Davis (ankle) played 22 minutes with two points, eight boards, one assist and one block against the Kings on Saturday.

He suffered an ankle sprain on Friday, but he wasn't limited in this game. Davis has really come on as a rebounder and he may have value if Jusuf Nurkic had to miss time.
Nov 19 - 12:51 AM

Noah Vonleh scored six points with six boards and one assist in a start against the Kings on Saturday.

He made all three from the field and was effective on defense. Coach Terry Stotts loves the matchups and Al-Farouq Aminu (ankle) could be back in the next week or so, which means it's hard to roster Vonleh.

De'Aaron Fox scored 11 points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer during a 102-90 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

He was 5-of-9 from the field with no attempts from the line, so the usage hasn't really been there. One reason why Fox caught our attention early was because of such high usage, but that has really dipped. In his last five, he only had an 18.9 usage rate, but that number was at 26.9 in the first five games. Low usage aside, it's encouraging that he looks to be starting the rest of the way, so there may be a small buy-low window on Fox.

Skal Labissiere did not score on his eight attempts from the field in his second straight start on Saturday, adding three rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 11 minutes.

Oh boy. That makes him 1-of-15 from the field on his two starts this weekend. The good news is the Kings may be playing him, so that's a step in the right direction. The bad news is that he's not very good with his fouls and turnovers matching his points and boards over these two games. Labissiere is purely a stash and coach Dave Joerger could yank him from the rotation at any moment.
Nov 19 - 12:33 AM

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 12 points with one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He didn't pick up any noteworthy playing time from the Buddy Hield (ankle) injury. However, Bogdanovic was really slumping coming into this game with a two-point dud on Friday and some bad November averages of 7.4 points, 2.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.9 treys on 37.3 percent from the field. He's basically just a stash for now.
Nov 19 - 12:30 AM

Malachi Richardson scored one point with one rebound and one steal in 17 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

It was Richardson who picked up Buddy Hield's (ankle) spot in the rotation, but he didn't do much with it. Richardson has a long way to go.
Nov 19 - 12:26 AM

Kosta Koufos scored four points with seven rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

Willie Cauley-Stein said he likes to play next to Koufos, so maybe he can find a regular role. Still, there's very little upside here.
Nov 19 - 12:24 AM

Garrett Temple went 0-of-9 from the field for zero points with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes on Saturday.

Hey, at least he played on a back-to-back set. Temple is likely going to get nights off at some point, so it's really tough to count on him as a fantasy asset.
Nov 19 - 12:20 AM

Wes Matthews scored a season-high 22 points with two rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six 3-pointers against the Bucks on Saturday.

His eight dimes were also a season high, and that has been a trend this month with 3.8 per game -- he averaged a career-high 2.9 per game last season. Matthews is still ice cold inside the arc and his steals are down to just 0.9 in November. He's still getting a good amount of shots and chances are you weren't counting on him for FG%, so he should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 19 - 12:09 AM

Dennis Smith Jr. shot 2-of-8 from the field on Saturday, scoring five points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 22 minutes.

The rookie committed four turnovers but he also hit one 3-pointer, and he's proven that he can stuff the boxscore on a per-minute basis. It didn't click tonight with the Mavs' backup guards playing extremely well, and Dallas cruising to a blowout victory, but DSJ's owners shouldn't be discouraged. After a rough start to the season, he's been cruising with top-50 value over the past few weeks.
Nov 19 - 12:04 AM

Malcolm Brogdon scored four points with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

We finally have a nice little sample on Brogdon now that Eric Bledsoe is around. It hasn't really gone very well in those five, averaging 10.2 points, 3.6 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.4 treys on 39.6 percent from the field in 28.8 minutes. His efficiency, usage rate, assist percentage and minutes are significantly down as a bench guy, so he's taking a bigger hit than expected. Brogdon was awesome next to Giannis Antetokounmpo, but he may be losing his value in shallower leagues.
Nov 19 - 12:02 AM

Maxi Kleber was invisible again on Saturday with five points, one assist and one turnover in 10 minutes of action.

The rookie big man committed three fouls during his limited time on the court, and he's done nothing to inspire fantasy ownership. In 144 minutes of action, he's compiled just four assists, four steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.
