Indiana Pacers small forward Bojan Bogdanovic scored 18 points on 5-for-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Sacramento Kings. He added four rebounds and two assists. Bogdanovic is averaging a career-high 16.4 points per game this season and should continue to be one of the Pacers' best offensive weapons with Victor Oladipo (knee) out indefinitely. The Pacers play the Wizards on Monday, who allow the 11th-most points per game.
Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner scored nine points on 4-for-11 shooting in Saturday's win over the Sacramento Kings. He also grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked four shots. Turner should have a great chance to put up strong fantasy numbers when the Washington Wizards come to town on Monday, who allow the second-most rebounds per game. While some of Turner's upside is capped by the presence of fellow big man Domantas Sabonis, he's still a good fantasy option on Monday night.
Indiana Pacers power forward Thaddeus Young scored 20 points on 7-for-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Sacramento Kings. Young was 1-for-4 from three and added nine rebounds and a block. Young is starting to hit more threes, though it hasn't happened consistently enough yet to call it a trend. The Pacers play a bad Wizards team on Monday, who allow the second-most points per game and second-most rebounds per game. Young should be a solid fantasy option.
Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade scored 25 points on 8-for-21 shooting from the field and 5-for-10 from beyond the arc in Saturday's victory over the Clippers. He also had six rebounds, six assists and three turnovers in 32 minutes. His 1,000th career game was a nice bounce back contest from his two-point, 0-for-6 shooting performance on Friday. However, the 36-year-old did miss four of his season-high eight free throw attempts. The 16th-year vet, who is a career 76.6 percent foul shooter, is shooting just 66.7 percent from the charity stripe this season. Wade will look to reach double-figures for the eighth time in nine outings against the Lakers on Monday.
Sacramento Kings center Willie Cauley-Stein scored 14 points on 6-for-14 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Indiana Pacers. He also grabbed nine rebounds and added two assists, a steal, and a pair of blocks. The Kings take on Chicago on Monday, who are allowing the eighth-most points, most rebounds, and third-most blocks on a per game basis this season, setting Cauley-Stein up for a productive outing.
Sacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox scored 18 points on 7-for-14 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Indiana Pacers. He added six assists, two blocks, a rebound, and a steal as well. The second-year pro has been a revelation this season for the Kings, and will have a good shot to fill the stat sheet up on Monday against a Bulls team that ranks in the bottom-10 in points and assists allowed per game.
Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield scored 20 points on 8-for-20 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Indiana Pacers. He added four rebounds as well. Hield is shooting 42.2 percent from three-point range this season and scoring 18.8 points per game. The Kings face the Chicago Bulls on Monday, who allow the eighth-most points per game but hold teams to the ninth-lowest three-point field goal percentage. Still, Hield should be set for a solid performance.
Miami Heat point guard Tyler Johnson scored eight points as he made two of three shots from the field, with all three shots coming from long distance in Saturday's victory over the Clippers. He also had one rebound and one turnover in six minutes of action before leaving with a left hip contusion. The good news is that the x-rays came back negative. The game was the 26-year-old's first start of the season as he replaced Josh Richardson (shoulder) with the first unit. Johnson, whose fantasy value may dissipate with Goran Dragic once again available, is considered to be day-to-day.
Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo scored 14 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the field in Saturday's victory over the Clippers. He added eight rebounds, four assists, one block, and a steal in 29 minutes. With Hassan Whiteside (personal) missing his second straight game, Adebayo once again stepped up his play. He has scored 36 points and grabbed 18 rebounds the past two games, and is now averaging 15.7 points along with 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, one block, and 1.7 steals in the three games he has started this year. Adebayo is expected to remain in the starting lineup until Whiteside returns and he has an enticing matchup against a Lakers team on Monday that allows the most points and third most rebounds in the league to opposing centers.
Dallas Mavericks point guard Jalen Brunson made his second NBA start in Saturday's win over the Houston Rockets, finishing with 14 points on 7-for-9 shooting. He had three assists and three steals as well. Brunson seems to be growing into a larger role for the Mavericks, but he'll return to the bench when Dennis Smith Jr. (wrist) returns, which could be as soon's as Monday's meeting with the Magic. Brunson is an interesting DFS option if he gets more starts in the future, but as a bench player, it would be wise to monitor how his minutes are distributed for a little longer before trusting him in lineups.
