H. Whiteside - C
Hassan Whiteside double-doubled during Sunday's win over the Mavs with 12 points, 10 rebounds, one steal and one turnover in just 19 minutes.
Whiteside looked great in just his second start of the season, and Damian Jones (who had been starting), didn’t play at all tonight — so that may hint that Luke Walton is preparing Whiteside for a new role with Richaun Holmes (hamstring) still being without an official timetable. As long as Holmes and Marvin Bagley (hand) are out, Whiteside should be a relevant name in fantasy hoops, and he could be a top-40 stud if he could consistently get into the 20-range minutes-wise.

B. Hield - SG
Buddy Hield couldn't buy a bucket on Sunday, going 1-of-5 from the field (0-of-4 from distance) for two points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block over 23 minutes.
Hield had been ballin' in the six games prior to tonight's dud, but he just had an off-shooting game tonight, as he got locked up by Josh Richardson. Look for him to bounce back on Tuesday vs. the Timberwolves.

A. Bradley - SG
Avery Bradley hit 2-of-8 shots, 1-of-3 3-pointers, and 2-of-2 free throws for seven points, three assists, five rebounds, and one block with four turnovers in a win over the Magic on Sunday.
Bradley was slated as a starter shortly before tip-off but didn't contribute a ton in 34 minutes. Regardless of whether he starts, Bradley's contributions are more felt outside the box score.

D. Fox - PG
De'Aaron Fox posted a 30-point, 12-assist double-double during Sunday's 121-107 win over the Mavs.
Fox went to work in the fourth to ensure the Kings would snap their nine-game skid, and he leads the NBA in fourth-quarter scoring this season. This was his 17th 30-point performance of the season, which is something he only did 10 times through his first two years in the league, and he added four rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers in his 37 minutes of floor time. Harrison Barnes also had a solid game with 24 points, five rebounds, one assist, five triples, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes.

K. Porter - SG
Kevin Porter Jr. hit 8-of-15 shots, 4-of-7 3-pointers, and 2-of-2 free throws for 22 points, seven assists, three rebounds, one steal, and three turnovers in a win over the Magic on Sunday.
Porter Jr.'s four made 3-pointers were his most this season, and his eight made field goals were his most this month. Without John Wall, KPJ was given the space to create for others and launch open looks himself. This was a strong showing after one of his worst games of the season, and he'll be worth playing every time Wall sits.

T. Davis - SG
Terence Davis went off for 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting Sunday, adding three rebounds, three assists, five triples and one turnover across 30 minutes in a win over Dallas.
Davis seemingly couldn't miss tonight, putting in 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting through the first half of action, but he had done a whole lot of nothing in his previous six outings. Davis can randomly go off like this from time to time, but he's not a consistent enough part of the rotation in Sacramento to warrant a roster spot in standard settings.

C. Wood - C
Christian Wood hit 9-of-18 shots, 4-of-9 3-pointers, and 3-of-6 free throws for 25 points, three assists, 10 rebounds, one steal, and one block with four turnovers in a win over the Magic on Sunday.
Wood is getting plenty of opportunities to create for himself with John Wall sidelined, and he's showing up big. This was his third double-double in his last four games, and he's made at least two 3-pointers in each of those appearances. As long as Wood's healthy, he's an elite fantasy option.

T. Haliburton - PG
Tyrese Haliburton saw just 16 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing with three points, one rebound, two assists and nothing else in a win over the Mavs.
Haliburton's only points tonight came at the line, as he finished 0-of-2 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe, and he finished the game with a team-worst plus/minus rating of minus-23. Terence Davis and Delon Wright played really well tonight, so Haliburton was the odd man out in the rotation, but we'd anticipate a bounce-back performance on Tuesday with a far more favorable matchup vs. Minnesota.
