Kemba Walker scored 18 points in an easy 110-82 win over the Nuggets on Monday with one rebound, nine assists and two 3-pointers.
He made 5-of-12 from the field and is coming out of his shooting slump quite nicely. In fact, Walker has an effective field goal percentage of at least 50.0 in each of his last five games, averaging 23.8 points, 2.8 boards, 6.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.4 treys. The buy-low window is closed.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist slowed down on Monday with five points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 23 minutes.
He looked terrific on Saturday with a double-double, which was his second of the season. Kidd-Gilchrist has put up some boring stat lines this month since his return from injury, averaging 8.7 points, 6.0 boards, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 steals on 41.5 percent from the field. He's going to need to stay really hot to be worth a pickup in standard leagues. The upside isn't there.
Gerald Henderson scored four points with six rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 19 minutes against the Nuggets.
It's pretty obvious his 17-point game on Saturday was a fluke. Henderson isn't really capable of posting big-time fantasy lines because he doesn't do much on defense and in treys, so leave him on the wire in standard formats.
Kirk Hinrich suffered a left hamstring strain on Monday and is questionable to return.
While Derrick Rose is healthy, there is no reason to bring Hinrich back from his injury. He exited with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and three turnovers.
DeMarcus Cousins is starting against the Warriors on Monday.
There was no doubt despite him being listed as probable. Cousins should go off tonight.
Al Jefferson suffered a minor injury on Monday and did return, finishing with 22 points, seven rebounds, one assist and no turnovers.
He was on the stationary bike after leaving the game with a minor tweak in the first quarter. Jefferson came back in to start the second quarter and should be fine. Although, it took him a very long time to get over his ankle sprain last season, so he's not a great healer. His owners will want to check back to make sure he's good to go for Tuesday against the Bucks.
Ty Lawson (back) scored 18 points with four assists, four turnovers and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes during a 110-92 loss on Monday.
He was roasted on defense, but it might not have been due to his sore back. Lawsone was a game-time decision and it was announced he was good to go about 90 minutes before tip, so he has a good chance to play on Tuesday.
Wilson Chandler played 21 minutes against the Hornets on Monday with eight points, nine rebounds and one block.
He picked up some minutes at power forward tonight and he should see an overall increase to his value while Danilo Gallinari (knee) is on the shelf. Chandler is worth owning in standard leagues and perhaps owners can use this dud to try and buy low on him.
