P.J. Tucker scored 19 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

The Rockets reportedly called Tucker close to untouchable in trades and you can see why. He's going to play center a lot on this roster, and he'll be getting more shots than in just about any situation in his career. Tucker could be in the mold of Trevor Ariza with plenty of treys and steals, so he's looking like a strong pickup in nine-cat leagues.

Josh Richardson made 8-of-21 from the field for 21 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Magic during a 104-101 loss on Wednesday.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said he wanted to get J-Rich more involved in the offense and he wasn't kidding. His 26.0 usage rate tonight is above all but one game from last season in 81 games, so that's great indicator that more offensive output is coming. After posting third-round value last year, he could be on track to do it again.

Danny Green got the start in his Raptors debut, posting 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting with five rebounds, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

Green is a logical fit as a 3-and-D player in a lineup with multiple go-to scoring options. He's coming off a sneaky-good preseason with averages of 10.0 points, 2.5 triples, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 steals, and could even carve out value in 12-team leagues. That said, his ceiling isn't great as a DNP-prone 31-year-old, so we're not adding him at the expense of higher-upside guys.

Kyle Lowry lit up the Cavs for a game-high 27 points on Wednesday, sinking 10-of-12 shots with five 3-pointers, eight assists, one board, one steal and one block.

It must be noted that Toronto was up against the Cavs' defense tonight, but Lowry was still impressive and the early returns of his pairing with Kawhi Leonard are encouraging. Raptors coach Nick Nurse has made it clear that the starting lineup will fluctuate throughout the season, saying he'd "like to keep [the lineups] a little fluid, only because I think this is a super versatile team," but K-Low and Kawhi are immune to any changes.

Hassan Whiteside scored 12 points with 18 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes against the Magic on Wednesday.

He did attempt a trey, but made just 6-of-15 from the field. Whiteside played a team-high 27 minutes in the first three quarters, and still was able to get seven minutes in the fourth -- Bam Adebayo did come in for him on a handful of possessions. He looks healthy and seven minutes in the fourth is music to the ears of those who got him later in drafts.

Jonas Valanciunas started on Wednesday and had six points on 3-of-8 shooting, 12 rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes.

Toronto is expected to mix-and-match lineups throughout the season, so owners shouldn't be surprised if Valanciunas heads back to the bench before long -- it could happen as soon as Friday vs. Al Horford and the Celtics. He only needs 20-24 minutes per game to help fantasy owners, though, so we're not particularly worried about his role to begin games.

Kawhi Leonard made his regular-season Raptors debut on Wednesday, scoring 24 points with 12 rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

A tumultuous summer and injury-spoiled 2017-18 campaign don't detract from the simple fact that Kawhi is a top-five fantasy player when healthy. He made 9-of-22 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws, and helped Toronto cruise to a 116-104 opening-night victory. His quad injury appears completely healed and he could be a steal for owners who landed him in the late-first or second rounds.
Oct 18 - 12:14 AM

Goran Dragic scored 26 points with four rebounds, four assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Magic on Wednesday.

D.J. Augustin couldn't guard him as Dragic was up to his Dragon ways with several creative drives to the basket. Despite some injuries in the preseason, Dragic looks 100 percent as he runs the offense on a team short on guard depth right now. He's not the most-coveted guy to own, but Dragic should coast to at least mid-round value.
