Game Recaps

Dillon Brooks provided 27 points (10-18 FG, 1-5 3PT, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist, two steals, and three turnovers over 27 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 115-108 win over the Suns on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Brooks has averaged 17.3 points per game in the month of December. That number is slightly inflated as Morant was absent for a few games. However, Morant has played the last two games and Brooks has continued to get his shot off. Brooks and the Grizzlies host the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

Jaren Jackson Jr. provided 24 points (10-18 FG, 3-7 3PT, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one block, and two turnovers over 32 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 115-108 win over the Suns on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson Jr. continues to impress when he's on the floor. Unfortunately, he continues to pick up fouls, averaging 5.2 fouls per game in December. It doesn't appear to be impacting his aggressiveness, only his availability. Jackson Jr. and the Grizzlies host the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

JJ Redick finished with a game-high 31 points (10-for-16 FG, 3-for-7 3Pt, 8-for-8 FT), two assists, and one rebound in 32 minutes of action in a loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Redick really needed a bounce back game after a three-point performance in the previous game against the Pistons. Redick is a solid scoring option in season-long leagues but that's about it.

Ja Morant provided 13 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3PT, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, six assists, one steal, and two turnovers over 33minutes in the Grizzlies’ 115-108 win over the Suns on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Morant put up one of the dunks of the year last night. Unfortunately, his box score was less impactful. It was only Morant's second game back and his dunk at least suggests he will continue to go hard to the room. He has a tough matchup Friday as the Grizzlies host the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

Brandon Clarke provided 15 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3PT, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks, and one turnover in 22 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 115-108 win over the Suns on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Clarke continues his efficient scoring off the bench. He's shooting 63.8 percent from the floor while averaging 1.3 three-point attempts per game. Clarke and the Grizzlies host the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

Jae Crowder provided 13 points (4-11 FG, 2-4 3PT, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, and three turnovers over 32 minutes in the Grizzlies’ 115-108 win over the Suns on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Crowder's five assists are the most he's recorded in a game since October. Crowder continues to exhibit a real-life impact versus fantasy. The Grizzlies host the Bucks on Friday.

RJ Barrett scored 22 points, had 10 rebounds, and three assists in 46 minutes in a 124-122 overtime win over the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: Barrett on the season is averaging 14.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists a game. He is the Knick's third leading scorer behind Julius Randle and Marcus Morris. This was one of his better games of late as Barrett coming into this game was averaging only 11 points in December. His next match up will be Friday against the Sacramento Kings.

David Nwaba came off the bench for 18 minutes. He produced eight points, three rebounds and one steal.

Fantasy Impact: Nwaba has averaged 8.6 points in his last five games. He does get about 15+ minutes per game but he doesn't do much with it. Expect his minutes to go down once Caris LeVert and Kyrie Irving return to the rotation.

Theo Pinson came off the bench for 15 minutes and scored 12 points. He also added three rebounds, two assists and one block.

Fantasy Impact: It's a rare showing for Pinson. He scored two points his last game. He could continue to get double digit minutes of game action with all the injuries on the Nets. He's not worth an add in most leagues.

In just 22 minutes off the bench, DeAndre Jordan nearly double doubled with nine points and 14 rebounds. He added one assist and one block.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the limited minutes, Jordan continues to be a reliable source of points and boards. If Jarrett Allen goes down with an injury, Jordan should become a defensive beast for the Nets and his fantasy owners.

Garrett Temple produced 11 points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Fantasy Impact: This is the second game in a row in double digit scoring. Caris LeVert and Kyrie Irving remain on the sideline. Temple should continue to get all the opportunities to produce for the Nets.

Joe Harris shot 1-of-8 from downtown, finishing with nine points on Wednesday night. He added six rebounds and two assists.

Fantasy Impact: Harris is one of the league's best three-point marksman, but he was off tonight. He should rebound quickly in his next game. His owners need not panic at this point.

Taurean Prince scored six points (2-12 FG, 1-5 3PT). He salvaged his night with five rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Fantasy Impact: This games marks two bad games in a row for Prince. He's been mostly effective all year with averages of 13.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists. Expect him to rebound shortly.

In Wednesday's 113-108 win over Brooklyn, Charlotte's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and one block in 20 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: It was nice to see Kidd-Gilchrist put up notable fantasy numbers again since it's been a while for him but it's unlikely to continue since his role off of the Hornets' bench doesn't give him an ample volume of minutes. He's best to leave in all fantasy leagues' free agent pools for the the time being.

In addition to the points Miles Bridges put up (in which he shot 4-16 from the field, 3-7 from three-point range, and 3-6 from the line) and the rebounds he ended up with for his squad, he also dished out two assists, blocked one shot, had one steal, and turned the ball over two times across 37 minutes of action in Wednesday's 113-108 win over the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Bridges continues to do a little bit of everything for his team and while his field goal percentage has been rough of late, his three-point shooting has been spot on. He is a viable start moving forward in all fantasy leagues.

In Wednesday's 113-108 win over the Nets, Cody Zeller scored 10 points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3PT, 4-4 FT), grabbed six boards, dished out one assist, blocked one shot, and had one steal in 20 minutes on the floor.

Fantasy Impact: While it's clear that Zeller isn't getting the same minutes he did earlier in the season, he's still putting up notable overall numbers on both ends of the floor in a just over 20 minutes per game volume since the start of December. In that stretch, he has put up 11.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, and 0.8 steals per game. He is a recommended start in deep fantasy leagues and is a relatively decent one in standard ones right now.

In a 113-108 win over Brooklyn on Wednesday, Charlotte's PJ Washington scored 13 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3PT, 3-4 FT), grabbed six boards, had one block, and turned the ball over once in 37 minutes of action.

Fantasy Impact: Washington now averages 13.7 points, 1.7 three-pointers, and 1.2 blocks per game in his last six contests. He is also shooting well from the field this season (49.0%) and continues to be someone that fantasy owners have to keep an eye on for standard fantasy leagues and even makes for a viable emergency fill-in start for an injured starter in them. He is a must-start in deep fantasy leagues, too.

In a 127-116 victory over the Timberwolves on Wednesday, Jeff Green scored 10 points (3-6 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-2 FT), grabbed one board, dished out one assist, and turned the ball over once in 17 minutes on the floor.

Fantasy Impact: Green once again showed he can score points when given the opportunity but unfortunately, his role while coming off of the bench for Utah is still very limited. That's why he is still off of the fantasy radar in all fantasy leagues.

In Wednesday 127-116 win over the Timberwolves, Emmanuel Mudiay had 13 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3PT, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one turnover in 22 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Mudiay had a nice game for the Jazz but his playing time is still very limited thanks to his tail-end bench role. He still isn't a player to consider even in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

In a 127-116 win over Minnesota, Utah's Bojan Bogdanovic scored 14 points (4-14 FG, 2-8 3PT, 4-4 FT), grabbed three boards, dished out three assists, and turned the ball over six times across 35 minutes of action.

Fantasy Impact: Bogdanovic continues to go through a slump on the offensive end. He's only scored 20+ points in a game once this month and his field goal percentage for the month is an ugly 32.1%. This is why he's not the safest of plays in standard fantasy leagues right now, but he's still a must-start in deep fantasy leagues.
