Brown saw the start in the absence of Michael Porter Jr. on Friday, and he was slightly underwhelming in that role. He failed to log double-digit points or contribute effectively in many other ways. Overall he's had a solid year and is good for a flex option every now and then.

Bruce Brown Jr. put up 12 points (5-13 FG, 0-3 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with eight assists and four rebounds across 36 minutes in Sunday's close win over the Mavericks.
Brown had an increased role in the absence of Jamal Murray (health protocols), and he played pretty well in his role. He didn't score a lot of points, but he facilitated well and led the team in assists. He will lose fantasy value when he reverts back to his usual role off the bench when Murray returns.
