Paul Millsap scored 18 points with nine rebounds, five assists, four steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes during a 138-93 win over the Hawks on Thursday.

Revenge game? The Hawks have seen a lot of players go off against them, so Millsap putting up one of his best lines of the year is no surprise. That said, Millsap is on one of his best stretches of the year over his last three, averaging 18.7 points, 5.7 boards, 4.0 dimes, 2.0 steals, 1.3 blocks and 2.3 treys on 51.4 FG% and 81.3 FT%. He's creating a bit of a sell-high window.

Nikola Jokic scored 12 points with nine rebounds, seven assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday night.

It's too bad the Hawks were blown out badly because maybe Jokic could've had his second triple-double on the season. The lack of triple-doubles is a surprise and a Vegas sportsbook had him at an over/under of 9.5 triple-doubles on the year, which almost seemed like a lock. That aside, Jokic's assists, steals and blocks are on pace for career-highs and Jokic is on his way to first-round value again this season.

Juancho Hernangomez scored 25 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday night.

He saw run in garbage time to add to a brilliant night at home. The Hawks are among the best matchups for wings, so Hernangomez's big night does come with a grain of salt. He didn't score more than eight points in any of his previous six games, so Hernangomez is more of a 16-team target as coach Mike Malone figures out his rotation.
Nov 15 - 11:41 PM

Jamal Murray came off the bench for the first time this season, scoring 14 points with four rebounds, five assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He checked in with six minutes left in the first quarter, and Murray didn't need to play the final 9:40 thanks to garbage time. Basically, the move to the bench isn't as bad as it seems and he'll be getting to 30 minutes in whatever role coach Mike Malone has for him. If his owner is rubbed the wrong way by the move, the Blue Arrow could be viewed as a buy-low option.
Nov 15 - 11:38 PM

Monte Morris scored eight points during his first NBA start against the Hawks on Thursday, adding two rebounds, two assists, one steal and no turnovers in 29 minutes.

It was against the Hawks, but coach Mike Malone's plan worked with Morris over Jamal Murray. Morris has been excellent next to Nikola Jokic on they year, posting per-36 stats of 13.7 points, 3.4 boards, 4.8 dimes, 1.7 steals, 2.1 treys and 0.3 turnovers in 105 minutes. Denver's offense should start humming and Morris will be playing next to Murray regardless of his position in the rotation, so he's worth an add in standard leagues.
Nov 15 - 11:33 PM

Trae Young made 2-of-11 from the field for six points during a 138-93 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday, adding two boards, five assists, one steal and five turnovers in 27 minutes.

He did look to bang knees in the second half and hobbled to the bench, but Young apparently didn't go to the locker room. Young is really struggling over his last two with a 2-of-12 shooting line for a season-low four points on Tuesday night, but he's still had solid shot selection. Before today, 36.0% of Young's shots this season came at the rim, but he's obviously struggled there given his lack of size. He'll be a negative in FG%, but the other guard stats should be there for Ice Trae.

Alex Len scored six points with five rebounds and two blocks in 13 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He had some trouble against Nikola Jokic and did look a step slow. Len was on the injury report for a sprained left ankle and he's had multiple ankle surgeries in his career, so the Hawks will likely be dialing his minutes back some. Plus, John Collins making a return soon would be a negative to Len's value, so his owners may want to jettison him for a hot free agent.
Nov 15 - 11:25 PM

Omari Spellman scored 10 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 27 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He played some center in this game because the Hawks may have had a limit on Alex Len, who was on the injury report for an ankle sprain. Spellman's time in the starting lineup could be coming to an end with John Collins (ankle) not being ruled out until this afternoon, so he could be back this weekend. Spellman is more of a drop than an add.
Nov 15 - 11:24 PM

Kevin Huerter scored 10 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

DeAndre Bembry was brutal in the first unit today, and maybe coach Lloyd Pierce would prefer a catch-and-shoot guy like Huerter over a ball-dominant guy like Bembry next to Trae Young. Huerter can shoot it, but he still wouldn't have enough value in most leagues even if Taurean Prince (Achilles) misses additional time. Just keep an eye on him.
Nov 15 - 11:23 PM

DeAndre Bembry got the spot start against the Nuggets on Thursday, making 1-of-8 from the field for two points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 16 minutes.

He wasn't bashful with his shots, but the Hawks just had nothing going in the first unit. Taurean Prince (Achilles) did dress for this game, and it doesn't sound like he'll be out for long. The Hawks are going nowhere fast with six straight losses, so Bembry could have some value later in the year after the sell off some players. He's more of a speculative pickup in 16-team until we get more in info on Prince.
Nov 15 - 11:23 PM

James Harden scored a game-high 27 points with three rebounds, three assists, two steals, one turnover and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes during a 107-86 win over the Warriors on Thursday.

The one turnover is the highlight here after Harden averaged 5.0 per game over his last five outings, but he did make just 8-of-23 from the field as he continues to struggle with misses. Plus, Harden is starting to make his free throws again and was 7-of-8, but there was never any concern he would remain under 80% for long -- came into tonight at 78.9%. Despite the discouraging start for the reigning MVP, he is still a top-five value in fantasy going forward.
Nov 15 - 11:04 PM

Chris Paul scored 10 points with five rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, three steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He seems to have found his shot again with multiple treys in four straight. More impressively, CP3 has been a steals machine over his last five with 3.4 per game, adding averages of 16.0 points, 4.2 boards, 5.0 dimes, 0.6 blocks and 2.4 trey. The Rockets are locking in on defense lately, but their offensive is coming around as CP3 starts to heat up.
Nov 15 - 10:59 PM

James Ennis scored a season-high 19 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

For the start of the season, it looked like Ennis' value was going to be tied to the success of Carmelo Anthony. Well, needless to say Melo won't have success in Houston anymore, so Ennis is looking at a clear runway for minutes. He's coming off a 16-point, 34-minute game on Tuesday and his minutes look to be staying in the 30s. He has some Trevor Ariza-Like appeal, so he could be worth a pickup in competitive 12-team leagues.
Nov 15 - 10:54 PM

Gary Clark (hip) scored nine points with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

The Rockets have to feel some validation for cutting Carmelo Anthony here. Clark is making a defensive impact already and he's moving better without the ball to get some cleaner looks along the arc. Clark is probably going to have one of the smallest usage rates among rotation players in the league, so he's only a target in 20-plus team leagues.
Nov 15 - 10:49 PM

Isaiah Hartenstein matched his career-high six points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

It was the first time he's made a 3-pointer in his career and this wasn't about garbage time, posting a team-high +27. Hartenstein looks to have the backup job locked down behind Clint Capela, who has been bitten by the injury bug at times. He's only a stash in the deepest of leagues, but he has shown his multiple-category upside since Vegas.
