Russell Westbrook scored 29 points, 10 rebounds, 11 assists and two steals against the Kings this friday.

Fantasy Impact: That's a triple double alongside Lebron James. Thing is, it took three overtimes to make this happen. But the good news here is he only turned the ball over three times.

Anthony Davis tallied 23 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and four blocks at Sacramento.

Fantasy Impact: The Brow is having a bounce back season this year but it would take more efficiency and more snipes so he can be a top 3 fantasy player again.

Category: Game Recaps

LeBron James totaled 30 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds and two snipes in Sacramento this Friday.

Fantasy Impact: The King attempted a team high of 13 snipes which is encouraging but the best number to see in today's game is his 49 minute playing time.

Caris LeVert scores 19 points in 8/15 FGA. He also added five rebounds, three assists and three snipes.

Fantasy Impact: Finally a good game from LeVert. Let's hope this is a start of an upward trend. He also played 34 big minutes so it's safe to say he is healthy.

Domantas Sabonis scored 23 points with 18 rebounds in 36 minutes against the Toronto Raptors this Friday.

Fantasy Impact: That's four straight double-doubles for the Lithuanian. He still has more upside especially if he gets an uptick in assists.

Category: Game Recaps

Malcolm Brogdon posted 11 points, 12 assists, four rebounds and one steal against the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: He is Indiana's lead assist guy this season. With Domantas Sabonis and Caris LeVert getting less dimes there is no reason for Brogdon to slow down.

With a rash of injuries including one to guard Jalen Green, the Rockets may look to Wall for veteran leadership on the floor with so much organizational disfunction.

Fantasy Impact: Anthony will miss his fifth straight game for the Magic on Saturday. Expect rookie Jalen Suggs to pick up the slack again on Saturday. With a usage rate of 25.7% in his rookie season, Suggs might be worth a slot in your lineups if you have Anthony or need to fill a DFS slot.
