Collin Sexton finished Monday's win against the Charlotte Hornets with 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals. He did leave the game with a foot injury but was able to return to action and play out the rest of the game. While he didn't look to have any mobility issues after returning, it's something to monitor over the next day or so.

Notes 
 Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge LeBron fan. I just can't justify drafting him around the Round 1/2 turn this season. James finished 24 in per-game average last season and 75 in totals after appearing in just 45 contests. He provided above-average production in points, assists, rebounds, threes, steals, and FG% while playing 33.5 minutes per night.The Lakers' move to add Russell Westbrook (a player who needs the ball in his hands) was surely calculated to take some of the ball-handling responsibilities away from LeBron and give him another reliable playmaker. In his short tenure with the Lakers, he's been the de facto PG, racking up plenty of counting stats along the way. With Russ in town (in addition to other notable shooters and playmakers including Carmelo Anthony), it wouldn't be surprising to see a reduction in workload for the King, pushing his value back to the end of the second or beginning of the third round. He should still provide elite per-game numbers, but they won't be worth a first-round selection. His value diminishes even more in roto leagues based on his recent durability.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Sexton posted career highs in points, assists, rebounds, steals, and FG% in his third season, and if he can continue his strong play from 2020-21, he should comfortably be a top-75 fantasy option thanks in large part to his premier scoring.
