Kentavious Caldwell-Pope    G  Lakers

 

 

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will start vs. the Pelicans on Sunday, as expected. Corey Brewer will head back to fantasy obscurity off L.A.'s bench, and owners in season-long leagues can safely plug KCP into active lineups.

Caris LeVert    G  Nets

 

 

Caris LeVert posted 16 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals in 30 minutes as a starter on Sunday. LeVert made 5-of-9 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs, while committing four turnovers, and he could have played more minutes if it weren't for foul trouble. The Nets pulled out a 116-104 win vs. Atlanta tonight and LeVert looked good with the starting unit -- coach Kenny Atkinson is still piecing things together with Jeremy Lin (knee) done for the season, but it looks like LeVert will emerge with reliable standard-league value.

Jarrett Allen    C  Nets

 

 

Jarrett Allen played well in limited minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing with four points, four boards and four blocks in just 15 minutes of floor time. Allen played with great energy off the bench, and he managed to rack up his four blocks in just six minutes through the first half, including a highlight-reel swat when he switched onto Dennis Schroder (link below). With Timofey Mozgov being a step slow in the first unit and Quincy Acy starting to play more minutes at the four, Allen could realistically work his way into the starting five sooner than expected. He’s one of the more attractive stashes out there with his enormous upside in the shot blocking department, and now he looks to have some standalone value in deeper leagues.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson    G/F  Nets

 

 

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was limited by foul trouble during Sunday's win over Atlanta, registering nine points, seven rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 19 minutes of action. Hollis-Jefferson had a minor ankle tweak during the first quarter, but he only missed a handful of minutes and didn’t look any worse for the wear, so we doubt this will be something that causes him to miss any games. He’s been solid through the first two games of the season, so we'd expect a bit of a bounce-back performance on Tuesday in Orlando.

DeMarre Carroll    F  Nets

 

 

DeMarre Carroll had a well-rounded game during Sunday's win over the Hawks, registering 17 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers in 28 minutes. Carroll finally looks healthy, and he’s a much better fit in Brooklyn’s ball-movement system as opposed to the iso-ball marathon he went through during his time in Toronto. Through the first three games of the year he’s compiled averages of 14.7 points, 6.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 2.0 triples, 0.7 swats and just 1.7 turnovers per contest, which has been good enough for top-55 value in 9-cat leagues. The Junk Yard Dog might be back, so he's worth owning everywhere.

Dennis Schroder    G  Hawks

 

 

Dennis Schroder (left foot/ankle) will have an MRI on Monday and he's doubtful to play vs. the Heat in Miami. Schroder "likely" has a bone bruise in his foot, according to Adam Zagoria, but he's optimistic that he'll be ready for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls. Malcolm Delaney would likely start on Monday if Schroder is out, but he's just a streaming and DFS play until the MRI results are disclosed.

Omri Casspi    G/F  Warriors

 

 

Omri Casspi (left ankle sprain) is probable for Monday's game vs. Dallas. Casspi gives the Warriors' bench unit some extra offensive punch as they look to even their record at 2-2, but his availability shouldn't impact fantasy lineups.
