J. Valanciunas - C
Jonas Valanciunas double-doubled during Monday's win over the Pelicans with 20 points (9-of-12 FG, 2-of-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and a season-high five swats over 28 turnover-less minutes.
The Grizzlies racked up five swats within the first quarter of play, which set a new season-high for the most blocks in a single quarter of action, and with 19 total rejections on the evening they tied their franchise record. JV also became the first Grizzly in franchise history to ever record a 20-10-5 line on 75% shooting from the field. Jaren Jackson Jr. (12 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one trey, one steal, three turnovers) and Kyle Anderson (13 points, four rebounds, four assists, one triple) joined the block party with four apiece, and Brandon Clarke (eight points, four rebounds, two steals, one turnover) returned three shots in his 17 minutes off the bench.

D. Brooks - SF
Dillon Brooks produced 23 points, four rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and one turnover across 31 minutes in Monday's win over the Pelicans.
Brooks got off to a hot start tonight, dropping in 16 points on 11 shots through the first half of action, but he cooled down a bit after halftime and finished on 9-of-21 shooting from the floor and 4-of-6 at the stripe. Ja Morant also struggled with his shot tonight, going 5-of-14 from the field and 0-of-5 at the stripe for 12 points, 12 assists, three rebounds, two triples, one steal and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

N. Alexander-Walker - SG
Nickeil Alexander-Walker came off the bench for 18 points, six assists, three rebounds, two triples, one steal and two turnovers across 24 minutes in Monday's loss to Memphis.
That's two solid outings in a row for NAW, and with the Pelicans season slipping away, Stan Van Gundy should turn towards focusing on Alexander-Walker's development over these final three games. We're not optimistic about Brandon Ingram (ankle) or Zion Williamson (finger) playing again this season, which means NAW will be looking at a ton of opportunity and his minutes restrictions should rise with each game. Go get him.

J. Johnson - PF
James Johnson went 4-of-10 from the floor and 5-of-6 at the stripe for 13 points in Monday's narrow loss to the Grizzlies.
Johnson added seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and zero turnovers in his 28 minutes of floor time, but the Pelicans just couldn't get the job done tonight, and they're chances of making the play-in tournament are quickly slipping away. Naji Marshall finished with 12 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, three steals, one block and one turnover through 31 minutes as a starter, so both these guys should be rostered for New Orleans' final three games, as it seems unlikely that Brandon Ingram (ankle) or Zion Williamson (finger) will return.

D. DiVincenzo - SG
Donte DiVincenzo hit 4-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 12 points, six rebounds, six assists and a block in Monday's surprising 146-125 loss to the Spurs.
Despite the lack of scoring, DiVincenzo had one of the Bucks' better stat lines tonight. He'll be at it again on Tuesday and the Bucks will play on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, as well. Hopefully, DiVincenzo will be in the lineup for all four of those. If you're still playing in a fantasy league and he's sitting out there, the four games make him worth a look.

L. Ball - PG
Lonzo Ball hit 5-of-7 shots for 12 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two triples, one steal, two blocks and one turnover across 34 minutes in Monday's loss to Memphis.
Ball had been connecting on just 31.3% of his shots in his previous two outings, so he got things back on track from an efficiency standpoint tonight, and he also did a really nice job making life tough for Ja Morant — holding him to 5-of-14 shooting. Unfortunately, with the Pelicans losing tonight and the Spurs getting a win, they weren't able to gain any ground on the No. 10 seed, and with just three games remaining on their schedule making the play-in tournament seems close to impossible for New Orleans.

D. Dotson - SG
Damyean Dotson posts seven points and 2 rebounds in 26 minutes in Monday night’s loss to Indiana.
Dotson got the start for Kevin Love (rest) on Monday, but his performance was exceedingly underwhelming. Not only did he not do much offensively, but he failed to record any defensive statistics and played a role in allowing Indiana to shoot 50% from the field and 40% from distance. Even with quality minutes as a starter, Dotson isn’t worth a roster spot in most formats

J. Poeltl - C
Jakob Poeltl somehow nearly had a triple-double on Monday night with nine points, 10 rebounds, a career-high eight assists, a steal and three blocks on 4-of-8 shooting in Monday's 146-125 blowout win over the Bucks.
Poeltl has been kind of quiet on most nights lately but did have 11 points, 10 boards, four assists and four blocks on Friday. If you had him in your lineup tonight, your team is probably off to a nice start. And Poeltl still has four more games to go this week on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Hopefully, he plays in all of them despite a pair of back-to-backs.
