  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Tallies six steals in loss

    Daniels totaled six points (3-14 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one block and six steals over 34 minutes during Saturday's 105-100 loss to the Jazz. Daniels was a beast on the defensive end despite the loss, racking up a career-high six steals to go with one block. Unfortunately, he shot just 3-for-14 from the field, somewhat negating his defensive masterclass. Nonetheless, he remains a must-roster player across most formats, at least until CJ McCollum (chest) returns from his injury.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Continues stint in starting lineup

    Daniels amassed seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 116-106 victory over the Clippers. The 2022 first-round pick has failed to meet expectations of being the eighth overall pick during his tenure with the Pelicans, partly due to a lack of playing time. He has an opportunity to impress during CJ McCollum's (chest) absence, but Daniels hasn't excelled during his time in the starting lineup. The Aussie is averaging 9.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals through nine starts. The multi-category input is somewhat encouraging and has provided a streaming opportunity, but his fantasy outlook is mediocre at best, especially once McCollum returns. Jordan Hawkins has provided more of an offensive punch in McCollum's place and might retain a bigger rotation spot than Daniels when McCollum returns.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Logs team-high 37 minutes

    Daniels produced 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Timberwolves. Daniels continues to start at point guard for the Pelicans, putting together the best stretch of his young career. Over the past two weeks, he has averaged 10.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.1 three-pointers, good enough for top-75 value in standard leagues. As long as he is running with the opening unit, Daniels needs to be rostered in all leagues.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Solid all-around effort Friday

    Daniels notched 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals over 33 minutes during Friday's 115-110 win over Denver. Daniels has done an admirable job filling in for CJ McCollum (chest) and continues to make an impact on both ends of the court. He has scored in double digits in four consecutive appearances and is averaging 10.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 2.2 steals per game since moving to a starting role.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Solid showing in blowout win

    Daniels ended Tuesday's 131-110 victory over the Mavericks with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six assists, three steals and two rebounds in 29 minutes. Daniels has drawn four straight starts with CJ McCollum (ribs) sidelined. During that stretch, the second-year wing has averaged 11.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.0 steals in 33.0 minutes per game. With McCollum slated to miss extended time, Daniels should have a clear path to consistent playing time moving froward.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Sets career high with 17 points

    Daniels generated 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), nine rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes in Sunday's 136-124 loss to the Mavericks. The second-year player picked up his third straight start while the Pelicans were without CJ McCollum (chest), Herbert Jones (leg) and Trey Murphy (knee) and made the most of the opportunity, setting a new career high in scoring. A 43 percent shooter from the field and 32.2 percent shooter from downtown through his first 69 NBA games, Daniels' scoring performance from Sunday probably won't be easily replicable, but he'll have some value in the short term for fantasy managers in need of aid in the rebounds, assists and steals categories. He's averaging 7.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.7 steals through his first three starts.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Balanced outing in first start

    Daniels contributed seven points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and four steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 loss to Minnesota. Daniels earned his first start of the 2023-24 season Wednesday due to New Orleans dealing with the absence of six players, ending with a team-high steals mark and finishing second in assists in a balanced showcase. Daniels has been a nice contributor mainly off the Pelicans bench this season, averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.4 steals over 23.6 minutes in eight contests.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Starting Wednesday

    Daniels will join the first unit for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. Daniels will make his first start of 2023 with six rotation pieces -- including three starters -- sidelined. In seven games, Daniels has logged 7.0 points, 4.1 rebounds 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals/blocks across 22.4 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Team option exercised

    The Pelicans exercised the third-year team option on Daniels' contract Thursday. Daniels had a somewhat limited workload during his rookie season last year, averaging 3.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.7 minutes per game. However, he had some encouraging performances during Summer League play this year, and it's possible he carves out a larger role during his second professional season. Following Thursday's move, he'll be under contract with the Pelicans through the 2024-25 season.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Fills stat sheet

    Daniels totaled 17 points (6-18 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 15 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and two steals over 29 minutes in Sunday's 94-86 victory over Golden State. Daniels struggled a bit with his shot but still produced an impressive stat line. He was stellar on the boards and flashed his playmaking ability while playing his usual stifling defense. After playing just 17.7 minutes per game in 59 appearances last season, Daniels could be in line for an increased role in Year 2 if he continues to contribute at a high level during the summer.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Plays well against Minnesota

    Daniels amassed 18 points (6-14 FG, 0-4 3PT, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block in 31 minutes of Friday's 102-88 Summer League loss to Minnesota. New Orleans has a very inexperienced roster for the Summer League, but Daniels played well anyways and looked like a good fit alongside 14th overall pick Jordan Hawkins. Daniels appeared in 59 games for the Pelicans during his rookie season, averaging 3.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.7 minutes. He's projected to be the backup point guard behind C.J. McCollum this season, and Friday he looked like he is up for the challenge.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Scores eight points off bench

    Daniels amassed eight points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds and four assists across 23 minutes during Monday's 124-90 win over the Trail Blazers. Daniels saw increased playing time during the blowout loss and scored his most points since Jan. 22. Coming into the contest, the rookie first-round pick had averaged just 1.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 14.4 minutes, so it's safe to assume his playing time Monday was simply an outlier.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Scoreless in limited action

    Daniels chipped in zero points (0-1 FG), two rebounds and two assists over 11 minutes during Tuesday's 123-108 loss to the Lakers. Daniels played his fewest minutes since March 1 and was held scoreless for the first time since Feb. 25. Over his last seven appearances, he's averaging just 2.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 16.7 minutes per game, so barring numerous injuries, fantasy managers can safely leave Daniels on the waiver wire moving forward.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Just four minutes in return

    Daniels (ankle) recorded two assists in four minutes during Saturday's 128-106 loss to the Knicks. Daniels returned to action after missing the Pelicans' previous 12 games with an ankle injury. While he received the green light to suit up Saturday, it took until garbage time for him to actually get on the floor. Larry Nance (ankle) exited early and could miss time due to injury, but his absence looks as though it could prove to be more beneficial to Willy Hernangomez -- who played 11 minutes off the bench -- rather than Daniels.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Questionable for Saturday

    Daniels (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Knicks, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports. Daniels, who hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 24, was expected to return from a lengthy absence due to an ankle sprain Thursday, but he was a late scratch ahead of the contest and may sit out again Saturday. His prolonged absence should allow Josh Richardson, Trey Murphy and Naji Marshall to continue garnering solid roles for New Orleans.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Downgraded to questionable

    Daniels (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game versus the Raptors. Daniels being downgraded from probable to questionable Thursday due to a right ankle sprain is a bad sign for his availability against Toronto. If he's unable to suit up, his next chance to play is Saturday's matchup with the Knicks.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Likely to suit up against Toronto

    Daniels (ankle) is probable for Thursday's game versus the Raptors, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports. Daniels is expected to make his return Thursday after missing the previous 11 games with a right ankle sprain. The rookie guard will likely compete with Josh Richardson and Naji Marshall for bench opportunities.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Won't play Wednesday

    Daniels (ankle) is out for Wednesday's game versus the Lakers. Daniels will miss his 11th straight game Wednesday due to a right ankle sprain. His next chance to suit up will be after the All-Star break versus the Raptors on Feb. 23.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Remains out Monday

    Daniels (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Thunder. Daniels will miss his ninth consecutive game due to the right ankle sprain, and the Pelicans will more than likely keep him sidelined for Wednesday's contest against the Lakers to give him some additional time to heal up over the All-Star break. Whenever he's back to full health, Daniels may not have a spot available in the rotation, as New Orleans' other guards and wings are healthy and the Pelicans have since supplemented the position group with the addition of veteran Josh Richardson at the trade deadline.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Remains out

    Daniels (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup against the Hawks. Daniels will miss an eighth straight game due to a right ankle sprain. Head coach Willie Green said Jan. 25 that the rookie would be "out for a little bit of time," but the team hasn't provided an update since.
