Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a team-high 20 points during Tuesday's win versus Detroit.
Insight: He was ver efficient, going 7-of-12 from the field, 3-of-4 from the line, and 3-of-5 from deep in 32 minutes of action. Knight also had eight assists, three rebounds, two steals, and two turnovers.
Description: Pistons center Andre Drummond playwed very well in Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.
Insight: He was 11-of-15 from the field for 23 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks, and one trunover. This is the second straight double-double for Drummond, and owners are hoping this busts him loose.
Description: Hawks point guard Jeff Teague scored a team-high 28 points in Tuesday's win over the Wizards.
Insight: He was 8-of-18 from the field and 12-of-15 from the line, while also chipping in three assists, one rebound, two steals, one block, and three turnovers. While the production is nice, Teague's assist numbers need to improve.
Description: Magic small forward Tobias Harris has missed the past two games and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Golden State.
Insight: He's been dealing with a calf issue. Channing Frye will see more minutes during his absence. Moe Harkless and Channing Frye will continue to see extra minutes though neither has proven to be fantasy worthy.
Description: Rockets forward Terrence Jones (leg) still has no timetable for his return.
Insight: Jones is dealing with nerve damage in the leg and is just now getting feeling back in his toes, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. He was playing well before the leg issue, averaging 14.0 ppg and 7.5 rpg.
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) did not play Monday against the Knicks and may miss three or more games, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen.
Insight: There was hope he would be able to play Monday, but he apparently did not feel right during shootaround. Tarik Black will get the start, but has little fantasy value. power forward/center Donatas Motiejunas would be a better option
Description: Rockets starting point guard Patrick Beverley will not play for a while due to an injured left hamstring.
Insight: Beverley missed four games the last time he suffered a hamstring injury and coach Kevin McHale thinks this time might be longer, according to Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen. Isaiah Canaan and Jason Terry will get all the minutes with Canaan likely the starter.
Description: Bulls forward Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle on Friday for a third time since last spring and will miss a second consecutive game Tuesday.
Insight: Gibson hopes to return in time for Friday's game, but there are no guarantees. He's averaging 12.4 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.7 apg primarily off the bench, but when he starts he's been better (15.6 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 2.2 apg).
Description: Hornets guard Gary Neal injured his left shoulder Monday night and is questionable for Wednesday versus Portland.
Insight: This comes at a bad time as he'd been getting 30 minutes a night due to the injuries to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and P.J. Hairston. Neal has played solidly off the bench, scoring 12.3 ppg with 2.8 rpg and 1.5 apg.
Description: Pacers point guard Donald Sloan had a big night during Monday's win over the Mavericks.
Insight: He was 10-of-13 from the field and 6-of-9 from the line for 29 points. Sloan also had five assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, one steal, and one turnover. He will not score this much on a nightly basis, but will have a chance to contribute all season.
Description: Rockets shooting guard James Harden had another big game during Monday's win over the Knicks.
Insight: He was 11-of-22 from the field, 7-of-7 from the line, and 7-of-12 from beyond the arc for 36 points. Harden also chipped in six assists, six rebounds, three steals, one block, and five turnovers. While the turnovers are a bit much, these type of numbers will make owners deal with that.
Description: Cavaliers forward LeBron James filled the stat sheet during Monday's win over the Magic.
Insight: James was 9-of-17 from the field and 9-of-11 from the line for his 29 points. He also had 11 assists, four rebounds, three steals, two 3-pointers, and only one turnover. James said he needed to step up, and he did just that.
Description: Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams scored 24 points in Monday's loss to Portland.
Insight: He was 10-of-24 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Carter-Williams also chipped in seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two turnovers. He needs to contribute more in the assist column, but it was a solid night, nevertheless.
Description: Pelicans guard Eric Gordon is out indefinitely with a torn labrum.
Insight: This is a big blow to the Pelicans and to fantasy owners. Austin Rivers will likely take over the starting shooting guard spot, but we do not recommend picking him up, until we see some production.
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) will not play Monday against the Knicks.
Insight: There was hope he would be able to play, but he apparently did not feel right during shootaround. There is still no timetable for Howard's return, but we would expect Houston to play it extremely safe with their big-man.
Description: Thunder guard Russell Westbrook (hand) could return as soon as Friday, according to Thunder beat writer for The Oklahoman Anthony Slater.
Insight: Westbrook went through some practice with contact. He isn't supposed to be back for a couple of weeks, but is apparently ahead of schedule. His return would take a huge bite out of reggie Jackson's current value.
Description: Pacers center Roy Hibbert (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against Dallas.
Insight: Ian Mahinmi will fill in during Hibbert's absence, but all you can normally expect to get from him is rebounds. he did score 12 in Saturday's game after Hibbert left, so he could be worthy watching.
Description: Timberwolves forward Thaddeus Young practiced Monday and is on pace to return for Wednesday's game
Insight: Young missed time due to the passing of his mother. He's seeing almost 32 mpg and averaging 14.3 ppg, 5.0 rpg, 1.6 apg, 1.6 spg. That's not quite as good as last season, but its a new team and it takes time to adapt.
Description: Jazz point guard Trey Burke had a solid game versus New Orleans.
Insight: Burke was 8-of-12 from the field, 2-of-3 from the line, and 2-of-5 from beyond the arc for 20 points. He also had four assists, one block,and four turnovers. Owners need his assist-to-turnover ratio to improve.
Description: Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward scored 31 points during Saturday's loss to the Pelicans.
Insight: He was 9-of-16 from the floor and 11-of-14 from the line. Hayward also chipped in eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block, and three turnovers. It was his third 30-point game of the season, and Hayward is now averaging 19.1 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 4.3 apg, 1.4 spg, while shooting 48 percent from the floor.
Description: Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday filled the stat sheet during Saturday's win versus Utah.
Insight: He had 19 points, nine assists, six rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal, and two turnovers. Holiday has been solid during his second season in New Orleans, and is now averaging 15.3 ppg, 6.8 apg, 1.4 spg, while shooting 44 percent from the field.
Description: Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis scored a career-high 43 points during Saturday's victory against the Jazz.
Insight: Davis simply continues to get better and better. He was 16-of-23 from the field and 11-of-12 from the line, while also chipping in 14 rebounds, two steals, one block, and two turnovers. Davis is arguably the NBA MVP thus far, as he is averaging 26.3 ppg, 11.4 rpg, 3.5 bpg 2.2 spg, and shooting 58 percent from the field.
Description: Bucks guard Giannis Antetokounmpo was very efficient during Saturday's loss to the Wizards.
Insight: He was 6-of-11 from the field and 8-of-8 from the stripe for 20 points. Antetokounmpo also had five assists, four rebounds, three steals, and two turnovers. Now that he is back in the starting lineup, owners need to start him with confidence.
Description: Bucks guard Brandon Knight scored a team-high 27 points during Saturday's loss to Washington.
Insight: He was 10-of-18 from the floor, 4-of-5 from the line, and 3-of-5 from deep. Knight also chipped in six assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block, and five turnovers. Owners will deal with the turnovers if he continues to produce numbers like these.
Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce turne back the clock during Saturday's win against the Bucks.
Insight: He was 8-of-16 from the field, 5-of-7 from the line, and 4-of-5 from beyond the arc for 25 points. Pierce also had 10 rebounds and two assists before fouling out. He is averaging 13.1 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.5 apg, but shooting only 40 percent from the field. Owners should be pleased with Pierce's production.
Description: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins was unreal in Saturday's win over the Timberwolves.
Insight: He was 11-of-15 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line for 31 points, 18 rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal, and three turnovers. If Cousins can keep his head on straight, he will continue to produce for owners all season long.
Description: 76ers center Nerlens Noel played very well in Saturday's loss to the Knicks.
Insight: He was 6-of-11 from the field, but only 5-of-10 from the line for 17 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block, and two turnovers. Free throws will continue to be an issue for Noel, but hopefully he will continue to produce lines like this one.
