Jonas Valanciunas notched 26 points (12-15 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three blocks, and two assists in Monday's win over the Bulls.

Fantasy Impact

Of the top-eight double-double leaders this season, only Russell Westbrook has played in fewer games than Valanciunas. He has 39 on the season, despite playing just 47 games. Valanciunas is nearly a lock to hit the arbitrary mark every night, averaging 17.0 points and 12.7 boards per game. No question about it, Valanciunas has moved into an elite center territory and deserves to be started every night. In addition to those scoring and rebounding abilities, the veteran center has blocked eight shots in his last three outings.
