C. Zeller - C
Cody Zeller didn't do much in 21 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing with seven points, three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in a win over the Trail Blazers.
Zeller was a DNP-CD his last time out, but tonight he was the seventh man in the rotation while Bismack Biyombo was the odd man out. Neither of these guys are worth rostering, as their place in the rotation isn’t certain, nor is their statistical production.

C. Boucher - C
Chris Boucher hit 10-of-16 shots, 6-of-9 3-pointers, and 5-of-7 free throws for 31 points, two assists, 12 rebounds, one steal, and one block with no turnovers in a win over the Thunder on Sunday.
Boucher was on fire to start this one, scoring 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting with three 3-pointers in just the first quarter alone. He finished the game the same way, scoring the game-sealing 3-pointer with 10.4 seconds left. He carried Toronto in this one with Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, and OG Anunoby sidelined. For as long as the Raptors’ bigs rest, he’ll be a premier fantasy option.

P. Washington - PF
P.J. Washington (ankle) looked great in his return to the floor on Sunday, tallying 23 points (8-of-17 FG, 2-of-4 FT), eight rebounds, five triples, one steal, four swats and just one turnover in 34 minutes off the bench.
Washington came off the bench behind Vernon Carey Jr. in his return from a three-game absence, which was just his second career game operating as a reserve (and the first time this season), but with Carey Jr. racking up two fouls on Charlotte’s first possession it only took 20 seconds for Washington to enter the game. He’ll likely be starting again on Tuesday in New York, and he’ll continue to see some increased opportunity on offense while Gordon Hayward (foot) is out.

I. Roby - PF
Isaiah Roby hit 4-of-6 shots, 1-of-1 3-pointers, and 2-of-2 free throws for 11 points, three assists, eight rebounds, one steal, and one block with three turnovers in a loss to the Raptors on Sunday.
Roby took a step back with Aleksej Pokusevski back in the lineup but neared a double-double in just 21 minutes. He also sunk a 3-pointer for his fourth consecutive game. Roby continues to find ways to produce in a crowded frontcourt.

J. Nurkic - C
Jusuf Nurkic contributed 12 points (4-of-8 FG, 3-of-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and two blocks over 24 minutes on Sunday.
Nurkic had been struggling with the turnovers and he went two straight games with just one block apiece, but tonight, he didn't commit any turnovers and snapped the single-swat trend. Still, his stat line was fairly unimpressive, and that's been an unfortunate trend for him this season with Nurkic and Enes Kanter essentially cancelling themselves out. Kanter saw 17 minutes off the bench on Sunday and finished with 12 points, seven rebounds and one block.

D. Bazley - PF
Darius Bazley hit 6-of-15 shots, 3-of-5 3-pointers, and 1-of-2 free throws for 16 points, one assist, eight rebounds, and one block with five turnovers in a loss to the Raptors on Sunday.
After making just two of his last 18 3-point attempts, Bazley recovered on Sunday for a solid overall performance. He also recorded his first block in five games. Still, Bazley's not a significant fantasy contributor as a low-efficiency scorer lacking many defensive statistics.

C. McCollum - SG
C.J. McCollum had a tough time getting his shot to fall on Sunday, going 8-of-22 from the field and an uncharacteristic 4-of-7 from the stripe for 22 points over 40 minutes in a loss to the Hornets.
McCollum is shooting 84% at the stripe this season, so it was surprising to see him miss so many freebies, but maybe you could chalk up the off-shooting night to fatigue with him being asked to do so much over the past two sans Damian Lillard (hamstring). He did add six rebounds, six assists, two triples and two steals while he was out there, and he only committed two turnovers, so it was still a pretty solid stat line minus the efficiency issues.

A. Pokusevski - PF
Aleksej Pokusevski hit 4-of-14 shots and 0-of-8 3-pointers for eight points, five assists, seven rebounds, six blocks with one turnover in a loss to the Raptors on Sunday.
Poku’s six blocks were a career-high, showcasing everything one of the league's most hyped prospects can do. This was his fourth game with two or more blocks in seven tries this month. Clearly, his sore right arm wasn't a problem after missing five games.
