TJ Warren scored 23 points on an efficient 11-for-14 night from the field. He also grabbed five rebounds, recorded one steal and one assist.

Fantasy Impact: Warren appears to be benefiting from the PJ Tucker trade, logging at least 38 minutes in both games since the All-Star break. In those games, he has averaged 20.0 points and 6.5 rebounds—showcasing the value he may have given the added opportunities. The arrow is pointing up for the 23-year old, keep an eye on him in deeper leagues and DFS lineups.

Milwaukee Bucks point guard Malcolm Brogdon contributed 15 points, seven assists, and two steals in the team's win Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Brogdon is a solid DFS play when given the minutes but with a healthy Matthew Dellavedova in the lineup he is nothing more than a GPP play.

Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard Khris Middleton returned to the starting lineup against the Suns and had eight points, seven rebounds, and two assists in 28 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Middleton is still trying to get back in the swing of things after returning from injury. Fantasy coaches should wait until Middleton is back to full strength before starting him in DFS.

Milwaukee Bucks center Greg Monroe played a solid game off the bench Sunday against the Suns scoring 14 points. Monroe added eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, and two blocks.

Fantasy Impact: Monroe continues to be a solid option off the bench for Milwaukee. As long as the Bucks remain in the playoff hunt Monroe should see plenty of minutes behind starter Thon Maker.

KCP contributed 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting including 3-of-8 from beyond the arc. He also grabbed three rebounds, dished out three assists, and had two blocks.

Fantasy Impact: KCP is streaky player but he is playing well right now and is averaging 16 points per game over the past seven games. He will look to continue to find his stroke on Tuesday when the Pistons host Portland.

Andre Drummond played 36 minutes in Sunday's 114-98 loss to the Celtics. Drummond would have played more in the deciding minutes but was pulled off the floor as the Celtics played hack-a-Drummond and fouled him anytime he touched the ball and it worked. Drummond went an abysmal 1-of-11 from the free throw line.

Fantasy Impact: Drummond now has eight double-doubles this month but his free throw shooting has been a huge problem for Drummond and the Pistons. Drummond will look to improve his free throw shooting when the Pistons host the Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.

Kevin Durant is listed as probable for Monday's game against the 76ers. Durant missed his first game of the season on Saturday due to a left hand contusion. Durant looks good to go which moves Patrick McCaw to the bench. (Source: Tim Bontemps on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: His return starts the domino effect of negative spins in terms of fantasy output. It's a downgrade for Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green but effects Andre Iguodala and Patrick McCaw the most. Get Durant in your lineups but check back for official word on Monday.

Alex Abrines is starting again in place of the injured Victor Oladipo on Sunday. Abrines scored a career-high 19 points in his last game so he should see plenty of chances. (Source: Cliff Brunt on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Oladipo out, Abrines is a deep league speculative streamer especially if your in dire need for points. Andre Roberson gets a boost with Oladipo out.

It's a surprising move considering the matchup with the Grizzlies. However, Chandler will start while Kenneth Faried is out and move Darrell Arthur to the bench. Chandler will be joined by Jameer Nelson, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari and Nikola Jokic in the starting five. (Source: Harrison Wind on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: No reason to change your stance here with Chandler as this starting nod is only a bonus. Continue to get Chandler in your lineups although the matchup is tough on Sunday.

Reggie Jackson will start and play on Sunday against the Celtics despite the questionable tag due to neck spasms. Jackson will continue to split point guard duties with Ish Smith. (Source: Jake Chapman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Even though Jackson is starting, my daily lineups haven't been effected as Ish Smith is the preferred daily play. Smith will still see plenty of run and even more if Jackson is forced to leave the game.

Avery Bradley will not play on Sunday against the Pistons. Bradley has played just one game since January 7th. Jaylen Brown will start again in his place with Marcus Smart seeing more minutes. (Source: Gary Washburn on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Smart is the preferred daily play between him and Brown but the real winner in terms of DFS is Isaiah Thomas. Continue to get IT4 in your lineups with confidence.

Ian Mahinmi will be available to play on Sunday against Utah. He could see some minutes or the Wizards could give Jason Smith extra minutes. Marcin Gortat will log heavy minutes against Rudy Gobert. (Source: J Michael on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Gortat gets a tough matchup in DFS against Rudy Gobert and the Jazz. Lean towards Bradley Beal and Otto Porter in DFS play. Instead of Gortat, look at Jonas Valanciunas in DFS play.

On the court for 31 minutes in Saturday night's home win against the Nets, Klay Thompson went 8-for-18, including 2-for-5 from three-point range. He also pulled down four rebounds and contributed four assists.

Fantasy Impact: Despite shooting below average, Thompson was able to feature in the points owing to the absence of Kevin Durant. Especially in these blowout games, Thompson is always highly likely to take a leading role in the offense. His value only suffers when Durant and Stephen Curry take the lead in the tight contests against more capable opponents. Start him with confidence in the easier matchups.

On the court for 22 minutes in Saturday night's home win over the Nets, Draymond Green went 1-for-10 from the field, including 1-for-4 from three-point range. He also pulled down eight rebounds, contributed two assists and committed three turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the absence of Kevin Durant, Green failed to take advantage of the offensive opportunities on offer. In fact, it was one of his worst shooting performances of the year. It was the second straight game he played just 22 minutes, even though he avoided foul trouble. Since returning from the All-Star break, which also saw the return of starting centre Zaza Pachulia, Green has struggled to find his place. Avoid him for the time being.

On the court for 34 minutes in Saturday night's home win over the Nets, Stephen Curry went 9-for-21 from the field, including 5-for-10 from three-point range. He also pulled down five rebounds, contributed five assists, and committed four turnovers. He stole the ball three times.

Fantasy Impact: In the absence of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry was required to do it all. And he did. His three-point game was on show, which made up for his poor shooting from close range. Curry has firmly established himself as the focal point of the offense, which provides him with a high ceiling. Start him with confidence in all formats.
