K. Nunn - SG
Kendrick Nunn is back in the bubble but will quarantine for the next four days and won't play Wednesday, according to the Pacers' broadcast team.
Nunn has been one of the better rookies this season and might be able to get out there on Friday against the Pacers in the Heat's regular-season finale. Goran Dragic is in line to start again on Wednesday, assuming the Heat don't rest him.

K. Kuzma - PF
Kyle Kuzma will start in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ribs) on Monday vs. the Nuggets.
The Lakers are going to go with a jumbo lineup of LeBron James, Danny Green, Kuzma, Anthony Davis and JaVale McGee. Kuzma doesn't offer much upside alongside LBJ and AD, so this doesn't improve his outlook much in daily leagues. The Lakers are just experimenting with some lineup combos with nothing else to play for, so we'll see how Kuzma fares in this one.

D. Bazley - PF
Darius Bazley kept his foot on the gas with another monster performance vs. the Suns on Monday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two triples in 35 minutes.
His emergence has been fun to watch with Bazley coming off a 23-point game with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers in 26 minutes on Sunday. This may not mean much in the short term because the Thunder were missing Steven Adams, Danilo Gallinari and Nerlens Noel for this one, but these performances should send Bazley's ADP straight up in dynasty formats for a player who just turned 20 in June. He's always been an intriguing prospect because of his ability to handle the ball at his size, but the shooting touch he's shown just raised his ceiling considerably.

D. Ayton - C
Deandre Ayton came off the bench vs. the Thunder on Monday, scoring 10 points in 17 minutes with six rebounds.
It was an interesting 24 hours for Ayton to say the least. After missing a COVID-19 test on Sunday night, Ayton had to be re-tested on Monday morning and couldn't join the Suns until he got clearance. He eventually got it right before tip-off, rode the bike to warm up and then entered for the second quarter. We expect him to be back in the starting lineup in a must-win game vs. a Philly team on Tuesday that will be without Joel Embiid (ankle) and maybe Al Horford (knee). The Suns are very much alive inside the bubble.

J. Clarkson - SG
Jordan Clarkson started and scored 18 points with five 3-pointers on 6-of-9 shooting in just 14 minutes of action on Tuesday.
The Jazz got blown out 34-14 in the final quarter to blow a lead and the starters played limited minutes today. A guy named Rayjon Tucker scored 17 points off the bench, Emmanuel Mudiay had 14 and Georges Niang had 13, all off the bench. The Jazz are aligned to play the Nuggets if they finish as the No. 6 seed, or the Rockets if they finish at No. 5. You have to think they're shooting for being the No. 6 seed after watching today's game.

B. Marjanovic - C
Boban Marjanovic started for the resting Mavs on Monday and hit 7-of-11 shots and 6-of-6 free throws for 20 points, nine rebounds, a steal and two blocks in a win over the Jazz.
Why Boban can't get a little more run when everyone is healthy is still one of the NBA's great mysteries. He's still a per-minute machine and usually looks great when he gets some extended run. If the Mavs continue to rest their studs over their final two games, Boban is certainly in play in DFS on Tuesday and Thursday.

T. Warren - SF
T.J. Warren (sore right foot) will play on Monday vs. Miami.
Warren has been the hottest player in Orlando and has some history with Jimmy Butler, so this should be must-see TV. He had a "sore foot" last game and ended up shooting 15-of-22 from the field. Keep riding the hot hand.

S. Curry - SG
Seth Curry returned from his sore right leg and scored 22 points with four 3-pointers on 8-of-11 shooting in Monday's 122-114 win over the Jazz.
The Mavs were without Luka Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis and Dorian Finney-Smith today and guys like Curry, Boban Marjanovic, Tim Hardaway and J.J. Barea took advantage of the situation. We'll have to see who the Mavs decide to roll with in their final two games before the playoffs start.
