Latest Player Updates

Brook Lopez scored six points (2-12 FG, 0-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds and three blocks over 24 minutes of play Friday.

Fantasy Impact: After missing two games with a minor back injury, Lopez has struggled shooting from the field. In his first two games back he's shot a combined 3-15 from the field. He'll likely find his shot again sooner than later and is still putting up solid block totals, but it's been frustrating for his fantasy owners.

Fantasy Impact: Dotson on the season is averaging 5.9 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.1 assists a game. He is not a great fantasy option, but has been getting decent minutes off the bench of late. During the last 10 games he is averaging 7.5 points in 19.5 minutes.

Damian Lillard scored 29 points on 9-for-18 shooting with eight assists, seven rebounds, and two three-pointers over 41 minutes as the Blazers lost to the Lakers on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Lillard continues to have one of the best seasons of his career. The All-Star guard is averaging 27.7 points, 7.4 assists, and 3.2 three-pointers a game and is worth owning and starting in all fantasy formats.

Giannis Antetokounmpo racked up 27 points (11-20 FG, 1-4 3PT, 4-6 FT), 11 rebounds, and four assists over 26 minutes of play.

Fantasy Impact: While Antetokounmpo's fantasy output would be impressive for most players, it actually fell below the Greek Freak's season average. The reigning MVP is an elite must-play fantasy option every game.

Michael Carter-Williams scored four points on 2-of-2 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals over 19 minutes on Friday in the Magic's win against the Cavaliers,

Fantasy Impact: Carter-Williams has been dealing with a hip injury that has caused him to miss seven of his last eight games. The veteran guard is no longer fantasy relevant as he has a reserve role for the team when he is healthy.

Category: Game Recaps


Donte DiVincenzo scored 11 points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3PT, 6-6 FT) to go along with five rebounds, one assist, and a career-high four steals over 22 minutes of play.

Fantasy Impact: DiVincenzo has taken big strides in his second season in the NBA. He's scored double-digit points in five of his last six games, despite coming off the bench again now that Khris Middleton has returned to the starting lineup. He's worth owning in deep leagues and monitoring in most standard leagues.

Mo Bamba scored four points on 1-for-5 shooting with six rebounds, one block and one three-pointer over 17 minutes as the Magic beat the Cavaliers on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Bamba has been seeing his minutes limited as he continues to deal with leg issues. Overall the second-year big man is averaging 5.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over 15 minutes this season.

Category: Game Recaps


Khem Birch scored five points on 2-for-5 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal over 31 minutes as the Magic beat the Cavaliers on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Birch continues to see plenty of playing time with Nikola Vucevic out with an ankle injury. The 27-year old center is averaging 5.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over 27 minutes over his last nine games and is worth a short term add in 14 team leagues and deeper.

Category: Game Recaps


Ersan Ilyasova put up 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and one assist in just nine minutes of play Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Ilyasova was incredibly effective in his limited minutes but he can't be trusted as a fantasy asset unless an injury in front of him opens up more playing time.

Category: Game Recaps


Markelle Fultz scored eight points on 3-for-9 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, and three turnovers in 27 minutes as the Magic beat the Cavaliers by a 93-87 score.

Fantasy Impact: Fultz struggled on Friday but overall has been playing some of his best basketball. Over his last eight games, the third-year guard is averaging 14.3 points, 5.1 assists and 1.1 steals and is worth owning in 12 team leagues and deeper.

Category: Game Recaps


Pat Connaughton totaled 13 points (5-5 FG, 2-2 3PT, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, and one assist over 21 minutes of play Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: It was a nice shooting performance, but it was also his first time hitting double-digit points in well over a week. He is not worth rostering in any fantasy leagues at this point.

Category: Game Recaps


D.J. Augustin scored 10 points on 2-for-10 shooting with seven assists, three rebounds, three assists, and a three-pointer over 26 minutes as the Magic defeated the Cavaliers on Friday by a 93-87 score.

Fantasy Impact: Augustin has settled into a shared role at point guard with Markelle Fultz and has seen a dip in minutes this season. On the year the veteran guard is now averaging 9.6 and 4.7 assists and is a deeper league own for fantasy owners.

Category: Game Recaps


Terrence Ross scored a game-high 21 points on 6-for-14 shooting with four three-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and one steal over 27 minutes in a 93-87 win over the Cavaliers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Ross has been hot over his last four games averaging 19.0 points and 3.0 threes on 49% shooting. The veteran forward is a streaky player and is worth a short term add in leagues while he is playing well.

Category: Game Recaps


Evan Fournier scored 18 points on 6-for-15 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, two three-pointers and one block over 29 minutes as the Magic beat the Cavaliers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Fournier has been red hot but cooled off a bit on Friday. The veteran guard is 23.2 points, 3.5 assists, and 3.5 three-pointers over his last 13 games and is worth owning in all fantasy leagues.

Category: Game Recaps


Jonathan Isaac scored nine points, six rebounds, four blocked shots, one steal, and one three-pointer in 33 minutes as the Magic beat the Cavaliers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Isaac has been struggling on the offensive end for the Magic averaging 10.7 points on 38% shooting over the last seven games. The third-year forward is still worth owning though for his big man stats as he is averaging 7.2 rebounds and 2.7 blocks on the season.

Nikola Vucevic (right ankle) said he has been doing some limited running on the court according to Josh Robbins of The Athletic. (Source: Joshua Robbins on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Vucevic sprained his ankle on November 20th and is expected to miss four weeks. Fantasy owners should be keeping an eye on updates to see when exactly the veteran big man will return. And for now, he should be stashed in most fantasy leagues.

Category: Injury Updates


Aaron Gordon scored 14 points on 6-for-13 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 31 minutes as the Magic beat the Cavaliers on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Gordon struggled with his shot on Friday after coming off one of his best games of the season on Wednesday. The veteran forward is now averaging 13.8 points and 6.5 rebounds over 19 games this season. Gordon is worth owning in most fantasy leagues.

Category: Game Recaps


Daniel Theis scored seven points on 3-for-4 shooting with two assists, one rebound, one block, and one three-pointer over 15 minutes on Friday as the Celtics beat the Nuggets by a 108-95 score.

Fantasy Impact: Theis continues to see his minutes and stats fluctuate and he has not been seeing consistent playing time. The second-year big man is starting but is sharing time at center with Robert Williams and Enes Kanter. Theis is more of a deeper league own for fantasy owners needing rebounds and blocks.

Category: Game Recaps


Semi Ojeleye scored three points on 1-for-4 shooting with four rebounds, one three-pointer, and one assist during Friday's 108-95 home win over the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Ojeleye has found a spot in the rotation for the Celtis and has been averaging 22 minutes a game over the last seven contests. The swingman does not provide much in the way of stats and can be left on the waiver wire by fantasy owners.

Category: Game Recaps


Marcus Smart scored nine points on 4-for-5 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, and one three-pointer over 28 minutes as the Celtics beat the Nuggets on Friday by a 108-95 score.

Fantasy Impact: Smart had missed the game on Wednesday as he was dealing with an injury to his abdomen and sickness as well. The veteran guard continues to be a must-own in 12 team leagues and deeper for his ability to get across the board stats for fantasy owners.
