    Gordon Hayward Aug 3 12:20am ET

    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.

    Jaylen Brown Aug 2 11:50pm ET

    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 Nurkic Aug 2 11:20pm ET

    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.

    Damian Lillard Aug 2 11:00pm ET

    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.

    Jayson Tatum Aug 2 10:40pm ET

    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 Allen Aug 2 6:10pm ET

    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.

    Joe Harris Aug 2 6:00pm ET

    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.

    Caris LeVert Aug 2 5:50pm ET

    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 5:30pm ET

    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.

    Thomas Bryant Aug 2 5:10pm ET

    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.

    Lance Thomas Aug 2 2:00pm ET

    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.

    Kemba Walker Aug 2 2:00pm ET

    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.

    Zion Williamson Aug 2 2:00pm ET

    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.

    Jamal Crawford Aug 2 1:50pm ET

    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.

    Gary Harris Aug 2 1:50pm ET

    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.

    Will Barton Aug 2 1:40pm ET

    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.

    Jamal Murray Aug 2 1:40pm ET

    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.

    Mike Scott Aug 2 1:30pm ET

    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.

    Jimmy Butler Aug 2 10:10am ET

    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.

    Rudy Gobert Aug 2 9:10am ET

    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.
