Gilgeous-Alexander accumulated 17 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists, three steals, and one block in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 loss to the Wizards.
Gilgeous-Alexander delivered a little bit of everything, including a career high in steals. The rookie has not been immune to inconsistent play, but he has scored at least 16 points in five of the last seven games while earning the starting point guard job on a team with no shortage of veteran depth at the position.

T. Harris - SF
Harris had 29 points (12-21 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, and one assist in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 loss to the Wizards.
Harris finished with a season high in scoring while recording at least eight rebounds for the eighth straight game. His contributions outside of scoring, rebounding, and three-point shooting have been (and will likely continue to be) minimal, but Harris provides more than enough in those categories alone to make him a highly valuable player across all formats.

D. Gallinari - SF
Gallinari registered three points (0-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, and five assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 loss to the Wizards.
Gallinari returned to the starting lineup after missing Monday's matchup with the Hawks due to an illness. It's unclear whether Gallinari was still affected by that in this one, though it seems at least a little bit likely. However, he'll now have a few days to rest up for Friday's tilt with the Grizzlies.

P. Beverley - PG
Beverley contributed six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, five assists, and one block in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 loss to the Wizards.
Beverley joined the reserve unit with Danilo Gallinari (illness) back in the lineup and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Avery Bradley holding down the starting backcourt spots. Beverley has seen considerably less minutes over these last two games (40 minutes combined compared to over 26 minutes per game prior) since Bradley returned from a six-game absence with an ankle injury. However, Beverley's ability to defend the point of attack and provide playmaking and three-point shooting will likely continue to earn him decent minutes going forward.

O. Porter Jr. - SF
Porter provided 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 win over the Clippers.
Porter matched his career high in rebounding and posted his second double-double of the season in what was his most inspired and well-rounded performance through the first month of 2018-19. Moreover, Porter hadn't reached 30 minutes in any of the last six games, so this effort was a welcome sight for fantasy owners.

T. Bryant - C
Bryant contributed seven points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist, and one block in 19 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 win over the Clippers.
Bryant drew the start with Dwight Howard (lower body) sidelined. Still, Wizards coach Scott Brooks mostly opted for smaller lineups, leaving Bryant on the bench for the majority of the matchup. Even if Bryant draws another start during Friday's matchup with the Raptors, he's merely a dart throw in daily leagues.

K. Oubre Jr. - SF
Oubre had three points (1-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound, and one steal in 12 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 win over the Clippers.
Oubre moved into the starting lineup, replacing Markieff Morris, but the 22-year-old forward got into foul trouble (five) and ultimately saw a season low minute total. He had turned in impressive stats in each of the last two tilts, and Oubre will look to bounce back during Friday's matchup with the Raptors.

M. Morris - PF
Morris managed 12 points (3-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 125-118 win over the Clippers.
Morris was aggressive despite moving into a reserve role in this one, tying fellow reserve forward Jeff Green for the third-most field-goal attempts on the team. The decision to drop Morris from the starting lineup hardly turned out to be a demotion, as he earned his average load of minutes (plus more playing time than he had seen in each of the last three games).
