Andrew Wiggins Headshot

Wiggins scored 27 points (10-22 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT) while adding four rebounds, four steals and an assist across 35 minutes in Monday's 102-88 win against the Kings.

Added 2:53 am (EST)
Wiggins is working on a streak of 18 games in a row with 20 or more points, longest active run in the NBA. The second-year player is also averaging 2.4 steals per game over his past nine outings. He is a must-start fantasy option across all leagues, especially rotisserie formats, since he contributes positively in so many categories.
Eric Gordon Headshot

Gordon finished with just nine points (3-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT) with two assists and a rebound across 26 minutes in Monday's 117-108 loss against the Pacers.

Added 2:27 am (EST)
Gordon struggled for the first time in three games since the acquisition of Lou Williams. The backcourt is crowded in Houston and Gordon can ill afford more struggles, especially with Williams lighting up the scoreboard since coming over from the Lakers. His minutes continue to hold steady around 26-30 minutes since Williams came aboard, so that's a good sign for those owning fantasy stock in Gordon.
Lou Williams Headshot

Williams finished with 28 points (8-15 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one blocked shot over 28 minutes in Monday's 117-108 loss against the Pacers.

Added 2:22 am (EST)
Williams has acclimated rather nicely since his trade from the Lakers, as he hasn't skipped a beat offensively. In three games since being acquired he has averaged 24.0 points with 3.7 triples per outing. So far fantasy owners haven't seen a drop in production from his time with the Lakers.
James Harden Headshot

Harden finished with 25 points (5-17 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 14-17 FT) while adding 12 assists, seven rebounds and two steals over 39 minutes in Monday's 117-108 loss against the Pacers.

Added 2:17 am (EST)
While Harden still finished with a respectable point total it was a grind all evening. He was way off from the perimeter and most of his damage came at the free-throw line. While his shot wasn't dropping, he more than made up for it with his fifth straight 10-plus assist game while posting at least two steals in his third consecutive outing.
Myles Turner Headshot

Turner finished with 12 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding six rebounds, three blocked shots and an assist across 28 minutes in Monday's 117-108 win against the Rockets.

Added 2:14 am (EST)
Turner extended his career-high streak of double-digit point totals to 21 games. He has also managed six or more rebounds in six straight outings. The 20-year-old is still scratching the surface, but he has emerged as a dependable option for your fantasy frontcourt.
Rakeem Christmas Headshot

Christmas posted a career-high 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT) while grabbing three rebounds over 20 minutes in Monday's 117-108 win against the Rockets.

Added 2:11 am (EST)
Christmas made the most of his opportunity, seeing his most extended playing time since his recall from Fort Wayne of the D League. He is averaging 6.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocked shots per game in three outings since being summoned to the big club, but he still has a ways to go before he is relevant in fantasy circles.
Monta Ellis Headshot

Ellis finished with 12 points (6-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt) with eight assists and seven rebounds over 32 minutes in Monday's 117-108 victory against the Rockets.

Added 2:06 am (EST)
The good news is that Ellis flirted with a triple-double. The bad news is that he turned it over six times, accounting for 28.6 percent (6-of-21) of the team's total miscues. He is averaging 12.0 points and 5.2 assists over his past nine outings despite coming off the bench. Ellis is a solid depth option for fantasy owners in need of points and assists in rotisserie formats.
Jeff Teague Headshot

Teague finished with 25 points (5-13 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 12-12 FT) while adding eight rebounds and six assists across 36 minutes in Monday's 117-108 win against the Rockets.

Added 1:57 am (EST)
Teague has been struggling to find his groove lately, posting just three games with 20 or more points over his past 20 games entering play. A big part of his success on Monday was his ability to get to the free-throw stripe, as he converted a season-high 12 attempts. While his scoring has been down this season, his assists (8.1) and rebounds (4.1) are on pace for career bests.
Serge Ibaka Headshot

Ibaka scored 15 points (5-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding four rebounds and one block across 36 minutes in Monday's 92-91 win over the Knicks.

Added Yesterday 11:59 pm (EST)
Since coming to the Raptors over the All-Star break, Ibaka has averaged 16 points and seven rebounds across 35.3 minutes. Although the point and rebound totals are similar to his season averages, he is already earning nearly five more minutes per game on a winning team, which bodes well for more opportunities. The Raptors lack a post presence other than Jonas Valanciunas, so Ibaka, a premier post defender with some range to his game, should continue to post nights like Monday night, if not better nights.
Lance Thomas Headshot

Thomas tallied 12 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and six rebounds across 29 minutes in Monday's 92-91 loss to the Raptors.

Added Yesterday 11:50 pm (EST)
In the last three games coming out of the All-Star break, Thomas has averaged 10.7 points and 5.7 rebounds across 32.3 minutes. He has earned starts with his productivity in Kristaps Porzingis' (ankle) absence, but he will revert back to a bench role when Porzingis returns, which is expected to be in the next game Wednesday against the Magic.
