  • Jaylen Brown SF | BOS

    Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Sniffs double-double in loss

    Brown closed with 30 points (14-23 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes before fouling out of Monday's 122-112 loss to the Pacers.

    Brown finished one rebound shy of a double-double in the loss, and although the milestone continues to elude him this season, his strong multi-category contribution is a critical piece of Boston's success. His scoring and rebound averages are lagging behind his 2022-23 totals, but the upside fantasy potential for Brown is still significant.

  • Al Horford C | BOS

    Celtics' Al Horford: Struggles in loss

    Horford posted two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists and one block across 31 minutes during Monday's 122-112 loss to the Pacers.

    Horford's usage has spiked during Kristaps Porzingis' (calf) absence, but his tenure in the starting lineup has been rocky. Through five starts, he's reached double-digit scoring only once, and a 15-rebound explosion against the Hawks makes his 7.4 per-game rebound average more impressive than it appears.

  • Jayson Tatum PF | BOS

    Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Paces team with 32 points

    Tatum racked up 32 points (13-26 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists and one steal across 37 minutes during Monday's 122-112 loss to Indiana.

    Despite Tatum's heroic total, the Celtics couldn't keep up with an explosive offensive performance from the Pacers. After averaging 30.1 points per game during the 2022-23 season, Tatum's numbers through 19 games have fallen slightly below expectations, and his field-goal conversion rate of 36.5 percent is the primary culprit. Still, the veteran is a significant rebound contributor, which can salvage his fantasy totals from a poor shooting night.

  • Buddy Hield SF | IND

    Pacers' Buddy Hield: Drills four from downtown in win

    Hield produced 21 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Monday's 122-112 win over the Celtics.

    Hield's role with the Pacers has solidified while youngsters like Bennedict Mathurin have continued to struggle with unremarkable results. The career sharpshooter is Indiana's best deep threat, and he'll look to continue to yield excellent results beyond the arc as long as he remains in the starting lineup.

  • Myles Turner C | IND

    Pacers' Myles Turner: Dominates inside with double-double

    Turner posted 17 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 122-112 victory over the Celtics.

    Turner was clearly the better player in the paint during Monday's win, as the Celtics continued to struggle without Kristaps Porzingis (calf) in the lineup. The big man provides a veteran presence on one of the league's youngest rosters, and although double-double numbers have eluded him frequently this season, he's averaging over two blocked shots per game, padding his solid stat lines.

  • Pacers' Tyrese Haliburton: Posts triple-double in return

    Haliburton ended with 26 points (10-18 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, 13 assists and one steal over 40 minutes during Monday's 122-112 victory over Boston.

    Haliburton returned from his illness to post the first triple-double of his career. Prior to his one-game absence, the Iowa State product had 13 double-doubles to his credit, but his season-high 10 rebounds Monday sent his stat line into uncharted territory.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Returns to bench

    Daniels is coming off the bench Monday against the Kings, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Daniels drew a spot start Saturday with CJ McCollum unable to travel with the team, but he'll head back to the bench Monday. He hasn't been productive in his last two contests off the bench, totaling six points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block over 26 minutes.

  • Eric Gordon SF | PHO

    Suns' Eric Gordon: Questionable for Tuesday

    Gordon (knee) is questionable to play Tuesday against the Lakers.

    Gordon is dealing with a right knee contusion that forced him to miss Saturday's win over Memphis. Coach Frank Vogel noted that the team will monitor how Gordon's knee responds to the limited practice session he logged Monday, so more details on his status should arise throughout Tuesday's pregame routine.

  • Lakers' Jarred Vanderbilt: Probable for Tuesday

    Vanderbilt (heel) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Vanderbilt saw limited action (14 minutes) in his 2023-24 season debut Saturday against the Rockets, and he's back on the injury report leading up to Tuesday's clash. The team will likely give him the green light closer to tipoff.

  • Gabe Vincent PG | LAL

    Lakers' Gabe Vincent: Remains out vs. Phoenix

    Vincent (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Ryan Ward of reports.

    Vincent continues to miss time while recovering from a left knee injury. His last appearance dates back to Oct. 30 against the Magic.
