Patty Mills, Cam Thomas present out in Brooklyn

Seth Curry, who’s rostered in 32% of Yahoo leagues, remained within the beginning lineup, which made him the clear goal for fantasy managers. Nevertheless, two different Nets would step ahead within the crew’s 121-104 win over the Lakers. Patty Mills and Cam Thomas, who’re each rostered in a single % of Yahoo leagues, scored 21 factors apiece off the bench to assist prepared the ground. Mills supplemented his level whole with three assists, two steals, and 4 3-pointers, whereas Thomas gathered 4 rebounds, one help, and 4 3-pointers.
Nearly as good as Mills and Thomas have been on Monday, would they be value including transferring ahead? If Simmons and T.J. Warren (shin) are cleared quickly, the reply can be no. But when these two can not play Wednesday night time in Boston, Mills, and Thomas can be value a roll of the cube in deeper leagues. Day’Ron Sharpe additionally had a great night time off the bench, placing up eight factors, 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and two blocks in 21 minutes. His prospects transferring ahead seem much less promising than these of Mills or Thomas, as he is backing up one of many NBA’s most improved gamers in Nicolas Claxton. And he is performed 21 minutes or extra in simply 4 of his 25 appearances this season.
Troy Brown Jr. (2%)
Brown benefitted from the absences of LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (toe). Beginning for the ninth straight recreation, Brown gathered 11 factors, 17 rebounds (a career-high), 4 assists, and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes. His shot at fantasy relevance will rely upon the wholesome of the Lakers’ two stars, as he is solely offering Fifteenth-round worth in 9-cat codecs during the last two weeks. Kudos to the few who streamed Brown, however his rostered share is not going to extend a lot (if in any respect) forward of Tuesday’s recreation in opposition to the Knicks. And that is even when James and/or Davis stay sidelined.
Deni Avdija (32%)
With Kristaps Porzingis again after a three-game absence, Monday seemed to be the night time when Avdija would lose some luster fantasy-wise. Nevertheless, Daniel Gafford (sickness) was dominated out, preserving Corey Kispert within the beginning lineup whereas additionally making certain that Avdija’s function would stay unchanged. And the person the Wizards name “Turbo” was excellent, scoring a career-high 25 factors with 9 rebounds, one help, one steal, one blocked shot, and two 3-pointers. Avdija, a Seventh-round participant during the last two weeks, made his closing 9 discipline purpose makes an attempt after beginning out 1-of-3. His play was a giant cause why the Wizards prolonged their win streak to 6 video games and beat the Spurs in San Antonio for the primary time since 1999. Even when Gafford is wholesome sufficient to play Wednesday night time in Detroit, it could be clever to carry onto Avdija if in case you have him rostered to see what his function might be as a part of a totally wholesome frontcourt rotation (minus Anthony Gill, who’s in well being and security protocols).

Zach Collins (15%)
The Spurs are seemingly operating the NBA’s model of a timeshare, not less than in dealing with the middle place.

Chris Boucher (26%)
Precious Achiuwa is the favored add amongst Raptors now that O.G. Anunoby has been dominated out with a sprained left wrist, as he is filling the void within the beginning lineup. However that absence additionally enhances Boucher’s fantasy prospects on account of Toronto’s lack of depth. An Eleventh-round participant during the last two weeks, he performed 24 minutes in Monday’s loss to the Suns, scoring 5 factors with 11 rebounds, one help, one block, and one 3-pointer. The offensive manufacturing wasn’t nice, however Boucher is proficient sufficient to supply strong fantasy worth in fewer than 25 minutes per recreation (he performed 24 in Phoenix).

The power to supply manufacturing in a number of classes makes him a extra enticing streaming choice than Aaron Wiggins, who produced three factors, two rebounds, and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes as Lu Dort‘s substitute within the beginning lineup. And Kenrich is somebody who will doubtless be within the rotation no matter which established gamers are (or aren’t) accessible.
