We're back!! We only had three games and suddenly the Cavs and Hawks are the worst teams in basketball (kidding). The Hawks, Pistons and especially Bulls had some rotation question marks, so I tracked all of the minutes for each positions and mentioned them. Here we go!!

Ersan Ilyasova - I assume he's owned, but he looked great in the SVG O. Ghostface Ilya had 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists, one block and three treys. Supreme Clientele.

 

Marcus Morris - He played 37 percent of his minutes at power forward and looked great in that spot. You'd think the Pistons just keep it tight and not bring Anthony Tolliver into the game in most cases. He finished with 18 points, 10 boards, four assists and one trey.

 

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - He looked great and Stanley Johnson playing all SF minutes is great for him. KCP scored 21 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

 

Dennis Schroder - He played 35 percent of his minutes next to Jeff Teague, which is more than I thought. He's worth a look with 26 minutes of playing time.

 

Stanley Johnson - 100 percent of his minutes came at SF, which is slightly bad news for him. Johnson had seven points with four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

 

Mo Williams - A big-time start with 19 points, but his value goes south once Kyrie Irving is back.

 

Taj Gibson - A nice game with five points, 10 rebounds, three blocks and three turnovers.

 

Doug McDermott - All of Nikola Mirotic's minutes came at the four. Will this continue? If so, McBuckets is worth a look in 14-team leagues.

 

Dante Cunningham - He played minutes at both forward spots and saw a big chunk of playing time. Hopefully he doesn't miss much time.

 

Ish Smith - Hot Ish! Jrue Holiday will play on Wednesday, but Ish is going to get 20 minutes or so.

 

Aron Baynes - DO YOU FEEL IN CHARGE?? Baynes looked great in limited playing time. He had six points, five boards and one turnover. All of his minutes came at center, though.

 

Alonzo Gee - He might be starting for a bit.

 

Lamar Patterson - He picked up crunch-time minutes and the Hawks really like him.

 

Mike Scott - He'll be in the rotation until Mike Muscala (ankle) is back.

 

Kendrick Perkins - No.
