With Gary Harris listed as doubtful and Will Barton out, Jamal Murray will see increased minutes. Murray has not done much this season to support his use in season long leagues. However, since the Pistons have been average on points given up to shooting guards; Murray could be a cheap and contrarian option to use in daily lineups.
Donatas Motiejunas Headshot

Motiejunas (lower leg) returned to Sunday's tilt against the Thunder after receiving stitches to close a laceration on his left shin.

Added 9:03 pm (EST)
The Pelicans' medical staff gave the big man the green light to head back into Sunday's game after he got stitches in the locker room. There doesn't seem to be any reason to believe he won't be available to play in the team's next contest Wednesday against the Pistons.
Kevin Durant Headshot

Durant (hand) is expected to play in Monday's game against the 76ers barring a setback to his injury, Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post reports.

Added 8:24 pm (EST)
Durant missed his first game of the season Saturday against the Nets with a hand bruise on his non-shooting hand, but it appears that his injury has improved and he is expected to take the floor for Monday's game. If he experiences an unexpected setback, Patrick McCaw would likely draw the start in his place once more.
Donatas Motiejunas Headshot

Motiejunas is probable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Thunder with a left shin laceration, which will require stitches.

Added 8:20 pm (EST)
Though the big man suffered a fairly serious cut on his calf, he'll probably return to Sunday's game after getting stitches in the locker room. If he doesn't make it back to the floor, Alexis Ajinca and Dante Cunningham would likely pick up additional minutes.
Derrick Jones Headshot

Jones played 10 minutes in Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Bucks, finishing with two points (1-1 FG), one steal and one block.

Added 8:13 pm (EST)
Jones, an undrafted rookie best known for finish second in the Verizon Slam Dunk Contest over All-Star weekend, has received his first serious looks in the Suns rotation all season over the last two games. With the Suns trading away P.J. Tucker to the Raptors on Thursday, Jones has stepped in as the main backup to starting small forward T.J. Warren. At this point in the season, the rebuilding Suns, who check in at last place in the Western Conference, have little to lose by seeing what the athletic rookie can do, so Jones figures to stick in the rotation over the next few weeks. Even so, he'll likely struggle to see enough minutes behind Warren to consistently produce quality numbers.
Matthew Dellavedova Headshot

Dellavedova posted zero points (0-6 FG, 0-4 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 24 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 win over the Suns.

Added 7:27 pm (EST)
Dellavedova has now gone scoreless five times this season, including twice in the last four games, and he has hit double figures in scoring only once in 10 February games. He is still a solid distributor and defender, but Dellavedova will probably keep sharing minutes with rookie Malcolm Brogdon, who contributed 15 points and seven dimes in 24 minutes. Unless Dellavedova starts hitting more shots, he is only useful in deeper leagues.
Greg Monroe Headshot

Monroe managed 14 points (5-13 FG, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, and two blocks in 34 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 win against the Suns.

Added 7:16 pm (EST)
Monroe struggled against a stingy Jazz frontcout on Friday, but bounced back with a strong effort versus the lowly Suns. Monroe appeared to be a shell of his former self over the first couple months of 2016-17, but he has been quite solid during January and February. As long as the Bucks remain relevant in the race for a playoff spot, expect Monroe to continue receiving plenty of minutes off the bench behind rookie Thon Maker.
