Brandon Ingram- He had a rough game on Monday, but you have to love the fact that the Lakers are confident enough to start at him at point guard. 

 
Shelvin Mack- He’s outplaying Dante Exum, but only a deep-league add if George Hill (toe) misses more time. 
 
Jeremy Lamb- Inconsistent, but he’s doing enough to help deep-league owners. 
 
Dwight Powell- He’s one of the best pickups of the night. Andrew Bogut injured his knee and could miss time, while Powell played 32 minutes in his absence. 
 
JaMychal Green- He should be owned in all standard leagues. Grabbed 15 rebounds Monday. 
 
Andrew Harrison- The signing of Toney Douglas didn’t impact his minutes Monday. He scored 12 points with three assists and two treys in 40 minutes (double overtime).
 
Troy Daniels- After erupting for a career-high 31 points in his previous game, Daniels stayed hot with 29 points and seven triples on Monday. 
 
Terrence Jones- Another solid game off the bench for Jones. I think he should be owned in all standard leagues. 
 
Langston Galloway- He’s a better add than Buddy Hield if E’Twaun Moore (toe) and Jrue Holiday (toe) miss more action.
 
Tony Allen- Massive double-double, but he’s very hard to trust. 
 
Patty Mills- He has cooled off, but Tony Parker tweaked his knee again on Monday. 
 
John Henson- Still looks like one of the best pickups of the week. Three blocked shots on Monday.
 
Greg Monroe- If an impatient owned dropped him, pick him back up. Looks like he’s in a possible timeshare with Henson, but that’s not terrible. 
 
Al-Farouq Aminu- Returned from injury Monday, but just a deep-league pickup for now. 
 
Nikola Mirotic- He’s as volatile as they come, but it’s hard to ignore tonight’s line. Not a bad idea to pick him and stash him on the bench to see if he can get hot. 
 
Sean Kilpatrick- He’s probably gone in competitive leagues, but it doesn’t hurt to check. 
 
Will Barton- That’s three excellent games in a row for Barton. 
 
Jamal Murray- Maybe he can get hot again. Scored 22 points with three triples Monday.
