Wayne Ellington Headshot

Ellington finished with 21 points (6-9 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 109-97 victory over the Timberwolves.

Ellington poured in another six three-pointers, as he led the team in scoring from the bench. He is currently one of the hottest scorers from beyond the arc in the entire league, averaging five per game over his last three outings. He will not deliver much else in terms of stats, but is a great option as a three-point streamer in most league formats.

Hassan Whiteside Headshot

Whiteside finished with 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's 109-97 victory over Minnesota.

Whiteside collected his first double-double in his last four games, as he helped his team to a comfortable victory. Given the nature of the scoreline, he was able to play limited minutes. Had he seen more action, he could have finished with a more impressive line. He was able to contain Kary-Anthony Towns, playing a big role in securing the victory. One of the biggest positive to come from this season, is his improvement from the free-throw line. He is currently shooting 73 percent from the charity stripe, well up from his 63 percent last season.
5:11 am (EST)
Andrew Wiggins Headshot

Wiggins totaled 18 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), three rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block across 38 minutes in Friday's 109-97 loss to Miami.

Wiggins finished Friday's game with a nice line, despite the low scoring effort. The Timberwolves appeared lost on offense without Jeff Teague (Achilles), and were never really in the game. Wiggins has been steady this season, and is doing about what owner would have expected. His defensive efforts have been better than last season, however, with his steals currently sitting at 1.3 per game. He has collected at least one steal in eight of his past nine games, something that owners have been hoping for, for the past two seasons.
5:06 am (EST)
Karl-Anthony Towns Headshot

Towns finished with 18 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in 38 minutes during Friday's 109-97 loss to Miami.

Towns struggled in this game, missing his first eight shots of the game. The Timberwolves got behind early and never really made a game of it. He was able to do some damage late in the game to salvage his line with a double-double, but again, failed to assert himself. He has now failed to score more than 18 points in his last five games, while only collecting one steal and two blocks in that same period. He should be able to turn it around, but owners will be starting to get frustrated with his lack of dominance on both ends of the floor.
5:00 am (EST)
Terry Rozier Headshot

Rozier tallied 23 points (8-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Friday's 118-103 victory over the Magic.

Rozier led the team in minutes played, coming through with a career-best 23 points on only 11 field-goal attempts. While some of this production was due to garbage time, he did see some minutes next to both Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart. While Smart has been excellent on the defensive end this season, his shot has looked really bad. There is a likelihood that Rozier can see some extra minutes moving forward, depending on the matchup.
4:51 am (EST)
Kyrie Irving Headshot

Irving accumulated 30 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 10-10 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in just 24 minutes during Friday's 118-103 victory over Orlando.

Irving hit the ground running, needing only 24 minutes and 15 shot attempts to compile his game-high 30 points. After having their winning streak ended against Miami, Boston took little time to bounce back, easily disposing of the Magic. Irving has been electric this season, leading his team to a league-best 17-3 record. Irving has been able to lift his defensive efforts this season, currently averaging 1.7 steals per game, up considerably from his 1.2 last season. His owners will be hoping he can continue this trend as he attempts to help Boston to the number one seed in the East.
4:43 am (EST)
Darcy Kuemper Headshot

Kuemper stopped 30 of 33 shots total in a 3-2 overtime loss to Arizona on Friday.

Kuemper was handed a good situation to win a game today, but couldn't take advantage. It wasn't all his fault, as his defense allowed four power plays, conceding on one of them. When you give any team that many chances, you're going to struggle, and the Kings learned that the hard way. He remains a solid pick as a streaming option, as indicated by his 1.84 GAA.
3:52 am (EST)
Scott Wedgewood Headshot

Wedgewood saved 22 of 24 shots on goal in a 3-2 overtime win over Los Angeles on Friday night.

With Antti Raanta on the sidelines (upper body), Wedgewood put forth an excellent effort today, keeping the Kings to just two goals and helping keep the Coyotes in the game long enough to win. He'll have to repeat this moving forward if he gets other chances in the net.
3:45 am (EST)
Christian Fischer Headshot

Fischer had an early assist and the game-winning goal in a 3-2 win over Los Angeles in overtime.

Fischer has truly been feast or famine, as he's followed up each multi-goal game with three straight games where he failed to get on the score sheet. He's got to get this fixed quickly to make his owners happy. At present time, he is too inconsistent to trust.
3:40 am (EST)
Alexander Radulov Headshot

Radulov had a goal and an assist in a 6-4 win over Calgary on Friday.

Radulov has been rolling through November, scoring in nine of Calgary's 11 games during the month. He appears to have adjusted well to Dallas and should be a more consistent scorer moving foward. Make sure you're regularly putting him in your lineup.
