Mitchell Robinson will have his left ankle re-evaluated on Monday.

"It still hurts a bit," Robinson said. "I’m waiting for the doctors to say about it [Monday]. [I hope to be back] as soon as possible [but I] got to wait what the doctors say." He was in a walking boot on Sunday and he's expected to miss a little more time, so it would be a surprise if he's cleared for Monday's game vs. the Suns. If he can't go, Luke Kornet will likely continue to pick up a handful of minutes behind Enes Kanter.

Former NBA player Ben Uzoh has reached out to Markelle Fultz to help him with his injury rehab.

In addition to Fultz, Uzoh and Landry Fields are the only players in the NBA who have battled thoracic outlet syndrome. The injury derailed Uzoh’s career, but when he got the proper diagnosis and learned how to manage the injury, he said he felt so much better and eventually started playing again overseas. It’s unclear if Fultz’s reps will take Uzoh up on his offer and we will continue to list him as out indefinitely in the meantime.

C.J. Miles started in place of Pascal Siakam (back stiffness) on Sunday, scoring six points on 2-of-12 shooting with two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

Miles added four boards, two steals and one assist, but couldn't get his perimeter shots to drop. Siakam took a hard fall over the weekend and Toronto may have been playing it safe here, since he'll now get two full days to rest -- coach Nick Nurse confirmed he doesn't expect it to be a long-term issue. This was Miles' first start of the season and among his better fantasy lines, which says plenty about his lack of appeal.

OG Anunoby chipped in seven points, five rebounds, two blocks, one assist, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers in 26 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

Pascal Siakam (back stiffness) was unavailable and the short-handed Raptors had both C.J. Miles and Delon Wright in the starting lineup, leaving OG as the default sixth-man. The second unit was trounced and Anunoby has yet to make a case for fantasy ownership. His most glaring flaw might be at the free-throw line, where he shot 1-of-4 tonight and is a combined 7-of-24 (29.2%) on the season.
Dec 16 - 11:16 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points and grabbed 14 rebounds on Sunday, making 12-of-21 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs in a tough road loss.

The Raptors were outscored 11-2 to close the third quarter, and they were blown out 27-14 in the fourth. Kawhi dished out four assists and made one 3-pointer tonight, but his efforts weren't enough to overcome the absence of Kyle Lowry, Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and Jonas Valanciunas. There's no shame in a close loss to a good Nuggets team in Denver, and Kawhi now gets a few days to rest before hosting the Pacers on Wednesday.

Lorenzo Brown played 15 minutes for the short-handed Raptors on Sunday, recording four points, three rebounds, three assists and one block.

Brown stepped up on a night the Raptors didn't have Kyle Lowry (thigh) or Fred VanVleet (back) in the backcourt. The assists were a season-high for Zo, and if he can't produce fantasy value without Lowry and VanVleet it might never happen.
Dec 16 - 11:14 PM

Greg Monroe had four points and four rebounds in 13 minutes of action on Sunday, making 2-of-6 field goals and 0-of-2 free throws.

Jonas Valanciunas' left thumb dislocation has opened the door for Monroe to earn backup center minutes, but he's been a bust for anyone who picked him up. Head coach Nick Nurse seems content to use Moose as a strict backup for Serge Ibaka, which doesn't bode well for his value.
Dec 16 - 11:08 PM

Delon Wright scored a season-high 15 points as a fill-in starter on Sunday, making 6-of-12 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 38 minutes.

Kyle Lowry (bruised left thigh) and Fred VanVleet (back) were both sidelined tonight, so Wright got the start and made the most of his opportunity. The Raptors' next game is at home on Wednesday but Wright isn't a great hold since Lowry and VanVleet are both day-to-day. Just keep this performance in mind if those guys do miss more games.
Dec 16 - 11:07 PM

Torrey Craig had another strong game on Sunday with 13 points, four rebounds, one assist and one block, making 5-of-14 field goals with three 3-pointers.

Craig had just one turnover in 39 minutes and he's now scored double-digit points in consecutive games after failing to do so in Denver's first 27 contests. We don't expect the offensive surge to last, but he's worth a look in deeper leagues until Denver gets more healthy bodies in the lineup.
Dec 16 - 11:05 PM

Trey Lyles played only 13 minutes on Sunday and failed to do much, shooting 1-of-6 from the field to score four points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

Denver continues to play without four key pieces of their lineup in Will Barton (hip, core), Gary Harris (hip), Paul Millsap (toe) and Isaiah Thomas (hip). Lyles seemed like an obvious beneficiary of Millsap's injury, but his opportunity has soured with brutal shooting -- 22-of-80 (27.5%) in his previous nine games. He could get hot at a moment's notice, but Miles Plumlee (10 points, seven boards) is playing great and most owners should leave Lyles on the wire.
Dec 16 - 11:05 PM

Juancho Hernangomez was quiet in 28 minutes on Sunday, missing all five of his field goal attempts to finish with two points, five rebounds and three assists.

Hernangomez had made at least one 3-pointer in 16 straight games prior to tonight, but went 0-of-4 from deep and didn't have any steals or blocks. He'd been cruising in December with 14+ points in five of the past six games, adding enough across-the-board stats for mid-round value, so owners will have to live with tonight's disappearing act. He's a solid guy to own, especially with Paul Millsap (toe) out of commission.
Dec 16 - 11:00 PM

Luka Doncic finished Sunday's home loss with 28 points, nine assists, six rebounds and one steal, making 9-of-15 field goals and 9-of-14 free throws.

Prior to the game, Kings coach Dave Joerger said to reporters, "Perhaps there was an idea that there was a ceiling on [Doncic]. I don't see it, unfortunately for us." Sacramento drafted Marvin Bagley III one spot ahead of Doncic this summer, of course, but this sounds like more of a shot at the Kings' front office than a knock on Bagley (who was out tonight with a knee injury). In any case, the entire league is well aware that Doncic is a star in the making -- and if he can reduce his turnovers (3.5) and improve his efficiency (42.8% field goals), the sky is the limit for fantasy value.
