Player Notes

Seth CurryAug 3 09:40am

Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry put together a nice bounce-back effort on Sunday against Phoenix, scoring 16 points on 6-for-11 shooting. He went 3-for-6 from downtown and also notched a couple of rebounds and assists. Curry really needed this after finishing Friday's loss to Houston with just three points and without a made field goal. It was Tim Hardaway Jr.'s time to struggle in this one as he finished 0-for-8 from downtown and had only two points. The Mavs are back in action on Tuesday in a favorable matchup against Sacramento, who have really struggled defensively since the restart.

Kristaps PorzingisAug 3 09:30am

Dallas Mavericks forward/center Kristaps Porzingis remained in hot scoring form on Sunday, finishing a 117-115 loss to Phoenix with 30 points on 10-for-20 shooting. He went 2-for-5 from three-point range and 8-for-11 at the line, adding eight rebounds and four blocks. The Mavs have lost both of their games since the restart, but Porzingis has been very productive all over the court. He'll be in a superb spot for another great performance on Tuesday against the Kings, who have been all over the place defensively since the restart, giving up 130.5 points per game.

Luka DoncicAug 3 09:20am

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic had a monster game against the Suns on Sunday, racking up 40 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds in a 117-115 loss. He missed all three of his shots from downtown but shot a solid 11-for-20 from the field with an 18-for-19 record at the line. Doncic has struggled from deep in his first couple of games in Orlando, shooting 1-for-12, but he's still gotten the job done and we can expect more of the same on Tuesday against Sacramento. Doncic has crushed it so far vs. the team that opted against drafting him, averaging 25.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 9.5 assists in six career appearances.

Cameron JohnsonAug 3 09:10am

Phoenix Suns small forward Cameron Johnson had one of the best games of his young career on Sunday, posting a 19-point, 12-rebound double-double against Dallas. He played a team-high 40 minutes as a starter, shooting 6-for-11 from the field and a superb 4-for-8 from downtown. The 24-year-old rookie added four assists to his first career double-double. Johnson now has three consecutive strong outings under his belt, which should be a huge boost to his confidence. The next matchup against the Clippers promises to be a difficult one, but Johnson did have a decent 11-point outing on 50 percent shooting against them last time out on Feb. 26.

Ricky RubioAug 3 09:00am

Phoenix Suns point guard Ricky Rubio had a very good game against Dallas on Sunday, finishing a 117-115 win with 20 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. He missed only once with three attempts from deep and shot 7-for-17 overall from the field. Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton found themselves in foul trouble, but the Suns still managed to erase a big deficit and win. Rubio played a big part in the comeback, and Phoenix will need another big collective effort on Tuesday against the Clippers. They are a top defensive team, but point guards have caused the Clippers some troubles this season, including Rubio who finished the previous meeting between the two teams with 18 points, 10 assists, and six rebounds.

Devin BookerAug 3 08:50am

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker delivered a 30-point performance on Sunday, leading the team to a sweet 117-115 win over Dallas. He fouled out late on, but the damage was done already with 10-for-20 shooting from the floor and 9-for-10 work at the line. Booker also had four assists, three rebounds, and one steal. The 23-year-old sharpshooter has started life well in Orlando, but he gets a very difficult challenge next on Tuesday against the Clippers. They limited Booker to 26 percent shooting and 14 points in the most recent meeting on Feb. 26.
Source: RTSports

Gordon HaywardAug 3 12:20am

Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward recorded 22 points, eight rebounds, four triples, three assists and a steal in a victory over the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Hayward was very efficient, shooting 60 percent from the field and 80 percent from deep. When the 30-year-old plays like this, it makes Boston a real threat to win the title. Hayward plans to leave the bubble for the birth of his child, though that won't be until around September. He dropped 29 points on Miami, his next opponent, back in January.
Source: RTSports

Jaylen BrownAug 2 11:50pm

Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown was in a zone from three-point range on Sunday, drilling 6 of 8 treys in a 128-124 win over Portland. Brown finished with 30 points, six rebounds, two steals and an assist, playing more minutes than any other Celtic not named Jayson Tatum. Boston's young guns led the way, with Kemba Walker and Gordon Hayward combining for only 16 shots. There are enough shots to go around in the offense for all four players to have solid numbers on most nights, which is rare. Brown will next play against the Miami Heat, who he's averaged 28 points per game against in two contests.

Jusuf NurkicAug 2 11:20pm

Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic is showing no signs of rust after missing most of the 2019-20 season rehabbing his leg injury. Nurkic dominated Boston on Sunday in a losing effort, scoring 30 points with nine boards, five assists, two steals, a block and a triple in 32 minutes. The 25-year-old feasted on the smaller Daniel Theis all night and was virtually unstoppable down low. Nurkic's next matchup will come against the small-ball Rockets on Tuesday, a dream matchup for the 7-footer. Fire him up in DFS.
Source: RTSports

Damian LillardAug 2 11:00pm

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (chest) ended Sunday's loss with a monster line of 30 points and a season-high 16 assists along with five triples. Lillard started the game shaky, just like on Friday, but caught fire to help lead a furious comeback for the Blazers. He's dealing with chest and foot injuries and still putting up big numbers, which is a bad sign for his next few opponents when he gets right. The 29-year-old will get a much-needed day off Monday after playing 89 minutes in two games. Tuesday brings a crucial matchup against the Rockets, who surrendered a triple-double to Lillard back in January.
Source: RTSports

Jayson TatumAug 2 10:40pm

Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum had a huge game in Sunday's 128-124 win over the Trail Blazers, scoring 34 points on 11 of 22 shooting from the field and 5 of 8 shooting from deep. Tatum added eight assists, seven made free-throws, four boards, two steals and a block. The performance was much-needed after he scored just five points against Milwaukee. Tatum looked like a star in this one and it looks like his third-year breakout is going to continue in the bubble. He'll have shaky shooting performances every now and again, but he'll be a dependable DFS option most nights. Up next is a matchup with the Heat, who defended Tatum well in their first matchup, though that was when they had Jimmy Butler (quarantine) in the lineup. Tatum would be a more appealing option if Butler doesn't play.

Jarrett AllenAug 2 06:10pm

Brooklyn Nets center Jarrett Allen posted 22 points and 15 rebounds in 38 minutes of floor time on Sunday. Allen didn't do much in his first game back- only playing 27 minutes- though it's possible the Nets wanted to ease him back into things. The 22-year-old is all Brooklyn has manning the five position in the bubble, so expect more big games from him than not. Allen should be a DFS darling the rest of the way, as long as players are cool with his poor free-throw shooting and limited offensive repertoire.
Source: RTSports

Joe HarrisAug 2 06:00pm

Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Harris caught fire from deep in Sunday's win over the Wizards, going 6-for-7 from beyond the arc with 27 points. It was an encouraging performance from Harris, who took advantage of the wealth of opportunities available in Brooklyn's rotation after having a quiet first game in the bubble. He won't have 27 points every game but he makes for a strong DFS play in the right matchup. He'll get a juicy matchup on Tuesday against the Bucks, considering Brooklyn will have to score to keep up with their offense. Despite having the best record, Milwaukee has surrendered the most three-pointers made in the NBA.
Source: RTSports

Caris LeVertAug 2 05:50pm

Brooklyn Nets guard Caris Levert erupted for 34 points in a 118-110 victory over the Washington Wizards on Sunday. He shot 44% from the field on 25 attempts and only had one turnover, so it was an excellent performance from the former Michigan Wolverine. LeVert's usage rate of 29.2 is a career-high and it could soar ever higher down the stretch, considering the number of absences on Brooklyn's roster. LeVert will have to be at his best on Tuesday if the Nets hope to compete with the Milwaukee Bucks, owner of the NBA's best record.

Troy Brown Jr.Aug 2 05:30pm

Washington Wizards forward Troy Brown nearly notched the first triple-double of his young career in his first bubble game. Brown scored 22 points with 10 rebounds, eight assists, one triple and one steal in 38 minutes of a 118-110 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. The 21-year-old was a popular waiver wire pick in redraft leagues earlier in the year and is now looking like a great DFS play for the remainder of the season. With no Bradley Beal in the lineup the rest of the way, there's a ton of shots and playmaking opportunities available and Brown looks poised to take advantage of it.
Source: RTSports

Thomas BryantAug 2 05:10pm

Washington Wizards center Thomas Bryant played his best game of the season on Sunday in a loss to the Brooklyn Nets. Bryant posted season-highs in points, 30, and rebounds, 13, while adding four triples, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 37 minutes. Prior to the shutdown, the 23-year-old was enjoying his best offensive season yet, with career-highs in points and three-point percentage. With Bradley Beal (shoulder) out for the rest of the season, Bryant could be the focal point of the offense for Washington the rest of the way. He's an ideal DFS target because he won't cost as much as other centers and should haul up plenty of shots in the bubble.
Source: RTSports

Lance ThomasAug 2 02:00pm

Brooklyn Nets forward Lance Thomas will jump into the starting five for Monday's game against the Washington Wizards. He replaced Timothe Luwawu in the starting lineup for Friday's game. Thomas finished with six points, two rebounds, and one assist in 18 minutes. Luwawu dropped a team-high 24 points with four rebounds in 22 minutes on the court. Thomas can likely be ignored in all fantasy formats, but Luwawu could have some sneaky value if he puts up solid numbers again.
Source: RTSports

Kemba WalkerAug 2 02:00pm

Boston Celtics guard Kemba Walker (knee) will see his playing time increased to around 17-23 minutes, according to head coach Brad Stevens. He played in 19 minutes during Friday's game, but didn't suffer any setbacks to his bothersome left knee. The Celtics are going to continue to be cautious with Walker going forward. The goal is to have him at full health in time for the postseason. His fantasy value is going to be limited until he gets back to playing his normal amount of minutes.
Source: RTSports

Zion WilliamsonAug 2 02:00pm

New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson (conditioning) is expected to be under a minutes limit for Monday's game, according to Pelicans VP David Griffin. Williamson missed 13 days of the bubble and left for a short period of time due to a family emergency. He has only played 15 and 14 minutes during the first two seeding games. The Pelicans continue to struggle with Williamson playing less minutes, but the team is focused on the future. Williamson won't have much fantasy value until the team gives him more playing time.
Source: RTSports

Jamal CrawfordAug 2 01:50pm

Brooklyn Nets guard Jamal Crawford (conditioning) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Washington Wizards. He was listed as questionable, but it doesn't sound like Crawford is in game shape yet. Crawford joined the Nets late and wasn't able to play in the scrimmages or their first seeding game. It's unclear when he'll be ready to play, but he could have some low-end DFS value once he's back to full speed.
Source: RTSports

Gary HarrisAug 2 01:50pm

Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris (hip) is currently listed as very questionable for Monday's game, according to head coach Mike Malone. He arrived to Orlando late due to a right hip muscle strain. It doesn't sound like he is ready to play yet, but fantasy owners will have to wait and see. Both Torrey Craig and Michael Porter Jr. should be fairly reliable options with Harris sidelined.
Source: RTSports

Will BartonAug 2 01:40pm

Denver Nuggets forward Will Barton (knee) is unlikely to suit up for Monday's game versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. He is currently considered very questionable for next game, according to head coach Mike Malone. Barton was able to play 18 minutes during the final scrimmage game, but didn't look comfortable. Torrey Craig and Michael Porter Jr. will be asked to step up if Barton is unable to play. Porter should have more fantasy upside, but that depends on whether or not Barton is available.
Source: RTSports

Jamal MurrayAug 2 01:40pm

Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray (hamstring) is considered very questionable for Monday's contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Head coach Mike Malone said he was hopeful that Murray, Gary Harris (hip), and Will Barton (knee) would be available for Monday. Monte Morris was asked to carry the load last game without Murray. P.J. Dozier saw some action off the bench, but Morris is the better fantasy option when Murray isn't playing.
Source: RTSports

Mike ScottAug 2 01:30pm

Philadelphia 76ers forward Mike Scott (knee) is not expected to suit up for Sunday's practice. He was held out of Saturday's game against the Indiana Pacers due to right knee soreness. His fantasy value is basically gone after Ben Simmons moved from point guard to power forward. Al Horford has been getting in minutes at power forward as well off the bench, so Scott won't have much value whenever he's ready to play.
Source: RTSports

Jimmy ButlerAug 2 10:10am

Miami Heat guard Jimmy Butler finished Saturday's restart matchup against the Nuggets with 22 points on 6-for-11 shooting from the field while also draining 10 of his 11 attempts from the charity stripe. He also added seven assists, four boards, and three steals. The absence of Will Barton (knee) allowed Butler to improve on his marksmanship after he shot 25 percent against Denver back in November. Miami will need the veteran to keep things going as the team looks to surpass the Celtics in terms of playoff positioning. Next up for the Heat will be the Toronto Raptors, with Butler averaging nearly a triple-double throughout two games against the defending champs this season.
Source: RTSports

Rudy GobertAug 2 09:10am

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert missed only one shot from the field in Saturday's loss against OKC, but he had a quiet game by his standards, finishing with 10 points and seven rebounds. He also tallied two blocks in 29 minutes. Gobert rarely goes back-to-back games without a double-double, so he should be much more active against the Lakers on Monday. He's now up to 46 double-doubles for the season, and one of them was a 13-point, 10-rebound effort against the Lakers in the most recent meeting between the two teams on Dec. 4.
Source: RTSports

Royce O'NealeAug 2 09:00am

Utah Jazz small forward Royce O'Neale made another start on Saturday against the Thunder, posting a solid line with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, and two steals. He managed all of that in just 19 minutes. O'Neale had recorded at least 20 minutes of action in 13 consecutive games, so it was surprising to see that he was used so little against OKC. The 27-year-old forward rarely does anything spectacular, but he helps his team in multiple ways and he has a big part to play in Orlando with Bojan Bogdanovic (wrist) out.
Source: RTSports

Donovan MitchellAug 2 08:40am

Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell was off form on Saturday against OKC, shooting blanks from downtown and finishing on 13 points. He went 5-for-15 overall from the field in 32 minutes of action, adding four assists. Mitchell opened up the restart with a nice performance against the Pelicans, so he ended up being a huge disappointment vs. the Thunder. He has a chance to get back on track against the Lakers on Monday. It's a difficult matchup, with the Lakers being one of the top defensive teams in the league, but Mitchell has done well against them this season, shooting 46 percent and averaging 26.5 points.
Source: RTSports

Steven AdamsAug 2 08:30am

Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams started his life in the NBA Bubble with a 16-point, 11-rebound double-double against Utah, adding two assists and two blocks. He shot 7-for-10 from the field and 2-for-5 at the line. Adams now has 22 double-doubles for the season and he'll be in a great spot to grab another one on Monday against Denver. He has posted his best numbers of the season against Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets, averaging 18.5 points, 15.5 rebounds, two blocks, and two steals across two appearances.
Source: RTSports

Chris PaulAug 2 08:30am

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul played only 27 minutes in a big 110-94 win over the Jazz on Saturday, but it was enough to rack up 18 points, seven rebounds, seven assists, and two steals. He made his only attempt from downtown and shot 7-for-11 overall from the field. Paul has enjoyed a fine season in Oklahoma City and he should also be excited for the next matchup against Denver. CP3 has averaged 22 points on 64 percent shooting in two appearances this season vs. the Nuggets, adding six assists and four rebounds.
Source: RTSports

Shai Gilgeous-AlexanderAug 2 08:20am

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a solid overall game and ended up being the team's leading scorer in Saturday's 110-94 win over Utah, shooting 6-for-12 from the field on his way to 19 points. He shot 2-for-5 from deep and added six assists, three steals, and two rebounds. OKC will expect more of the same from Gilgeous-Alexander in the next matchup on Monday against Denver. He has some good history vs. the Nuggets, as he registered a nice 11-9-9 line against them in the most recent meeting. Denver also looked very off pace defensively in their restart opener against Miami.
Source: RTSports

Bam AdebayoAug 2 08:10am

Miami Heat forward/center Bam Adebayo helped lead his team to a 125-105 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Saturday. The 23-year-old had another efficient night on the scoring end, dropping 22 points on 7-for-10 shooting. He also added nine rebounds and six assists. This type of performance has been the norm for Adebayo and has been a primary reason why Miami has been successful this season. Next up for the Heat will be the Raptors, with the big man averaging a double-double throughout two meetings with the defending champs on the year.
Source: RTSports

Pascal SiakamAug 2 01:50am

Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam did a little bit of everything in Saturday's win over the Lakers. Siakam scored just 15 points as he struggled from the field, though he added nine rebounds, three assists, two triples, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes. Games like this showcase how good Siakam can be even when he's not at his best. DFS players will have to pay up for his services but his do-it-all nature and large minutes per game numbers make him an appealing option.
Source: RTSports

Fred VanVleetAug 2 01:10am

Toronto Raptors guard Fred Vanvleet enjoyed an excellent return to the court in a 107-92 win over the Lakers. VanVleet tallied 13 points, 11 assists, five rebounds, three triples, a block and a steal in 40 minutes. Toronto has leaned on VanVleet all year- only seven players have played more minutes per game than the 26-year-old. This makes him an attractive DFS option, as his price tag won't run nearly as high as the other players who play as many minutes. VanVleet makes for a good play against the Heat on Monday.
Source: RTSports

Tobias HarrisAug 2 01:00am

Philadelphia 76ers small/power forward Tobias Harris used his first game in the NBA bubble to set a new career high in shot attempts with 29, which led to his sixth 30-point outing of the season during Saturdays loss to the Indiana Pacers. Even as Joel Embiid went for 41 points, that didnt stop Harris from establishing his dominance on the offensive end. In addition to knocking down three triples, Harris also snagged eight rebounds, far overproducing his projected output. With the trio of Harris, Embiid, and Ben Simmons accounting for 71 percent of the teams shot attempts Saturday, chances bode well for Harris on Monday when he returns to the floor versus the Spurs to continue seeing an increased offensive role.
Source: RTSports

LeBron JamesAug 2 01:00am

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James posted his second double-double in as many games as his team struggled against the Raptors on Saturday. The Lakers limped out of the gate, as they were down 10-0 at one point, though they fought back to take the lead heading into the half. James hasn't shot the ball up to his usual standard, though he was much better Saturday than in his first game back. Los Angeles' magic number for the first seed in the West sits at one after this loss so James will do his best to ensure his team locks it up sooner rather than later. He'll be pricey for DFS but worth it for now- there's no telling when/if the Lakers will manage his minutes down the stretch.
Source: RTSports

Ben SimmonsAug 2 12:50am

Philadelphia 76ers point guard/power forward Ben Simmons showed no ill effects of a position change during Saturdays defeat to the Indiana Pacers, compiling 18 points and 13 rebounds across his team-high 38 minutes. With Shake Milton entering the starting five as the point guard, Simmons' shuffling around is head coach Brett Browns attempt at spicing up his offense ahead of the postseason. Any concerns that owners had ahead of a matchup with a stout Indiana defense were quelled, as Simmons now enters a contest versus the Spurs on Monday with a sense of comfort in the new surroundings. His only prior meeting with San Antonio back in November resulted in a triple-double in just 32 minutes.
Source: RTSports

OG AnunobyAug 2 12:40am

Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby shot 8-for-9 from the field and 3-for-3 from deep en route to scoring 23 points in Saturday's win over the Lakers. The 23-year-old added four boards, two steals and an assist in 33 minutes. Anunoby's great season continues in the bubble- he's posted career-highs across the board. His ability to compile blocks and steals while shooting the three-ball on a low usage rate makes him a cheaper yet attractive DFS option. He should be considered for daily lineups on Monday against the Heat, who have allowed the fifth-most three-pointers made per game this year.
Source: RTSports

Victor OladipoAug 2 12:30am

Indiana Pacers shooting guard Victor Oladipo was originally a giant question mark to play during the NBAs restart of the 2019-20 season, but he was ultimately on the floor Saturday for his teams win over the Philadelphia 76ers, collecting 15 points across 32 minutes. His time on the court was a new season high, having had an additional four-plus months to recover from a knee injury that ended his previous year. In addition to the scoring, Oladipo added seven rebounds and two assists while also knocking down a pair of threes. While head coach Nate McMillan has noted a likely cap for Oladipo ahead of the playoffs, hell have a golden matchup Monday against the Wizards, one of the league leaders in pace of play that also so happens to be missing much of their wing defenders.
Source: RTSports

Joel EmbiidAug 2 12:30am

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid wasted no time reestablishing his dominance as one of the leagues premier stars during Saturdays defeat to the Indiana Pacers. Embiid finished with 41 points and 21 rebounds, marking his second career 40-20 outing. He was all over the floor during his 34 minutes, shooting 15-for-23, while going 10-for-12 from the free-throw stripe and adding four assists and three blocks. Even with Ben Simmons moving primarily off the point guard spot, the Sixers offense still ran through Embiid, who was ferocious on the offensive glass, collecting a career-best nine boards on that end. His next matchup comes against San Antonio on Monday, who has fared well at corralling opposing centers this season, even though Embiid posted a double-double in their lone meeting back in November.
