  • BOS Small Forward #0
    Jayson Tatum played 44 minutes in Monday’s 121-118 overtime loss to the Hornets, recording a line of 45 points (15-of-28 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs), 13 rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and seven 3-pointers.
    Tatum had a chance to force a second overtime after Gordon Hayward fouled him on a 3-point attempt with just over six seconds remaining. But he miss the third free throw after making the first two, and that was all she wrote after two Hornets free throws. The 45 points are a season-high for Tatum, who’s providing 2nd-round per-game value in 9-cat formats. While he hasn’t approached his Yahoo ADP of 5, fantasy managers are still getting solid value. Boston plays three more games in Week 5 without a back-to-back, so they should have their full rotation after Derrick White and Al Horford were held out of Monday’s game for injury management reasons.
  • PHX Shooting Guard #8
    Grayson Allen (groin strain) and Nassir Little (concussion protocol/orbital bone fracture) have been ruled out for Tuesday’s game against the Warriors.
    Neither Allen nor Little practiced on Sunday, and they weren’t active on Monday, either. Of the two, Allen’s absence is more impactful, as he’s been in the starting lineup for most of the season. With Bradley Beal (back) set to return, Allen would likely see his role reduced if healthy. As for Little, he’s been part of a logjam among reserve wings, and his absence will not impact fantasy basketball.
  • PHX Small Forward #35
    Kevin Durant (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Warriors.
    Durant is questionable for Tuesday’s game after sitting out Friday’s loss to the Kings. With Bradley Beal (back) cleared to play, the Suns could have their “big three” on the court for the first time this season. Should Durant not be cleared, Keita Bates-Diop would likely get another start, but he has not done enough to merit being streamed in fantasy leagues.
  • PHX Shooting Guard #3
    Bradley Beal (low back strain) is available for Tuesday’s game against the Warriors.
    Beal has been cleared to return to game action, with Tuesday’s matchup being the first he’s appeared in since November 12. Grayson Allen (groin) has already been ruled out, so Beal can fill that void in the starting lineup. However, fantasy managers should expect him to be on a minutes restriction of some kind, given the amount of time missed.
  • HOU Small Forward #25
    Reggie Bullock is questionable for Monday’s matchup with the Spurs due to an illness.
    Bullock is averaging fewer than 10 minutes per game this season, so his availability is unlikely to pique the interest of too many fantasy managers.
  • HOU Shooting Guard #9
    Dillon Brooks (illness) is available for Monday’s matchup against the Spurs.
    After receiving a questionable tag, Brooks has been upgraded to available, and he’ll presumably handle his normal workload. Brooks has yet to miss a game this season.
  • NYK Shooting Guard #5
    Immanuel Quickley (right knee inflammation) is questionable for Monday’s matchup with the Raptors.
    With Jalen Brunson (ankle) also questionable, Donte DiVincenzo should see some extra playing time, while Quentin Grimes and Miles McBride could be in line for expanded run as well.
  • NYK Center #23
    Mitchell Robinson will undergo left ankle surgery this week and be re-evaluated in 8-10 weeks, according to NY Knicks PR.
    Robinson was set to miss Monday, but now he’ll be sidelined at minimum through the All Star Break. It’s a huge blow for the Knicks, as MitchRob was in the running for Defensive Player of the Year. Fantasy managers getting a boost from his career-high rebound total, elite FG% and strong blocks will have to pivot to other options at center. Isaiah Hartenstein and Jericho Sims should pick up the majority of center minutes as they did a season ago. Last season, Robinson was sidelined from January 20 to February 15. Sims started every game in that span but averaged just 4.0 points, 6.5 boards and 0.4 blocks across 25.1 minutes. Hartenstein logged 23.7 minutes per game but proved to be the more serviceable fantasy option with 5.6 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks.
  • ORL Power Forward #1
    Jonathan Isaac (right ankle sprain) is available for Monday’s matchup with the Cavaliers.
    Isaac hasn’t taken the court in five of Orlando’s last six games, but he’ll be available for this one. He’s averaging just 13.4 minutes per game, which means that even though he’s been cleared to play, he’s off the fantasy radar outside of deep leagues.
  • OKC Shooting Guard #5
    Lu Dort (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Monday’s matchup with the Jazz.
    Dort will miss his first game of the season which should mean more playing time for the likes of Isaiah Joe, Aaron Wiggins and Cason Wallace. Joe is the best streaming candidate for fantasy managers searching for a pickup.
  • UTA Power Forward #20
    John Collins is questionable for Monday’s tilt with the Thunder due to an illness.
    With Walker Kessler (foot) and Lauri Markkanen (hamstring) out, expect Omer Yurtseven to shine in a favorable matchup. The Thunder have been crushed on the glass this season, and they’re tied with the Pacers for most boards allowed over the last three games, with a whopping 64.7. Kelly Olynyk should see some additional run in this one, too.
