Rudy Gobert Pours In Season-High 25 Points During Win

Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert continued to rebound the ball at an elite rate during Mondays victory over the Golden State Warriors, but in addition, he was nearly flawless from the field en route to a 25-point effort. Gobert, who snatched 14 rebounds, shot 11-for-12 and added two blocks for good measure. If there are any blemishes to be found from his dazzling performance, he did shoot just 3-for-9 from the free-throw stripe, an ailment that does not traditional plague one of the league's premier big men. His nightly fantasy outlook can be difficult to ascertain due to his role, but he possesses a favorable matchup Tuesday on the second leg of a back-to-back when he faces a Brooklyn squad allowing the third most DFS points per game to opposing centers thus far in 2019-20.

Ja Morant Scuffles Mightily From Field During Win

Memphis Grizzlies point guard JA Morant returned to the lineup for Mondays victory against the San Antonio Spurs following a one-game absence and struggled to put the ball in the basket. Morant, who went 3-for-13 from the field in his last outing, went 2-for-12 against the Spurs, compiling just nine points across 25 minutes. He added in four rebounds and three assists to keep his performance out of dud territory, yet it marks the second straight single-digit scoring outing from the rookie, who opened the year with seven consecutive games in double figures. He looks to reclaim his high-scoring offensive ways Wednesday against Charlotte in what should be a more open-spaced contest for the 20-year-old to navigate.

LaMarcus Aldridge Notches Team-High 19 Points

San Antonio Spurs power forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge was once again quiet on the glass during Mondays loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, although he did lead the team in scoring with 19 points on 8-for-15 shooting. Aldridges early season rebounding numbers have been harrowing, having accrued just 6.1 per game across his first 10 contests, which would easily be his lowest total since his rookie season in 2006-07. While he added four rebounds, three assists and two steals Monday, the Spurs will need a return to All-Star form from their star big man moving forward.

On top of the offensive punch that he provided, the third-year wing added three assists, two rebounds and two steals. His role in the starting five for the Grizzlies appears safe moving forward, even as his performance fluctuates.

Jonas Valanciunas Drops Season-High 18 Points In Double-Double

Memphis Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas had his best offensive outing of the season to date during Mondays win over the San Antonio Spurs. Valanciunas parlayed a 9-for-12 effort from the field into a season-best 18-point effort, which when combined with his 12 rebounds, gave him his sixth double-double of the year. Memphis big man has been remarkably consistent through the early part of 2019-20, having scored in double figures in each of his last nine games, yet not exceeding the 18-point plateau. He draws a golden matchup Wednesday versus Charlotte, who is allowing the most DFS points per game to opposing centers.

In addition to the scoring output, he snatched six rebounds and added five assists across his 38 minutes. He can now safely be reinserted back into the fantasy mix in any format that he was previously relied upon.

De'Aaron Fox Will Be Reevaluated In Three-To-Four Weeks

Sacramento Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox (ankle) suffered a left ankle sprain at the end of practice and will be reevaluated in three-to-four weeks. This is a tough blow for the Kings who are already without Marvin Bagley (thumb). In Fox's absence, either Cory Joseph, Yogi Ferrell or Bogdan Bogdanovic will start while the rest of the starters get boosts in usage. Bogdanovic has the most value of the three.

Brandon Ingram A Late Scratch Monday Night

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram (knee soreness) will not play Monday night against the Houston Rockets. This comes as a surprise with no previous reports of the injury. Since this is just soreness, it is likely the Pelicans are being cautious with their breakout player. Ingram's absence will allow Josh Hart to get a spot start and would be a good DFS play. Ingram's will get a few days of rest with their next game not scheduled until Thursday.

Derrick Rose Starting Monday Against Minnesota

Detroit Pistons point guard Derrick Rose (hamstring) will play and start Monday against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Rose has been nursing a hamstring injury and was originally questionable, but ultimately felt good enough to play. Rose will start with Reggie Jackson (back) still out, but it is possible Rose's minutes are monitored. The Pistons are also on the first leg of a back-to-back set which may lead to a rest day for Rose on Tuesday.

Jeff Teague Will Remain On Sidelines Monday Night

Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Jeff Teague (illness) will not play Monday night against the Detroit Pistons. Teague will miss his fourth straight game with an illness, but appears to be making progress. With Shabazz Napier (hamstring) also out, rookie Jarrett Culver will draw another start. Culver has been serviceable in the starting lineup, but the real winner has been Josh Okogie who is coming off the bench. Okogie is the better short-term option.
