Sterling Brown, SG, Milwaukee Bucks
With the Bucks firmly holding the best record in the NBA, Milwaukee is looking to rest key guys and play some of their younger ones. With Giannis, Khris Middleton, and Eric Bledsoe all out for load management, Sterling Brown came through with a career-game– 27 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals against Atlanta. The Bucks are on the second night of a back-to-back in Brooklyn but Brown has got young legs, so I don’t see that as a problem.
Shaquille Harrison, PG, Chicago Bulls
15 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 2.2 steals over the last 5. Harrison and the Bulls will also face the Knicks so this will be a fun, fantasy-friendly matchup featuring cellar dwellers.
Jae Crowder, PF, Utah Jazz
Derrick Favors is out so Crowder will be getting everything he can handle Monday night.
Jonah Bolden, PF/C, Philadelphia 76ers
Joel Embiid is out for at least a couple of games so it’s either Bolden or Boban that’s going to get the start. My bet is on Bolden, who just had a magnificent game vs Minnesota– 19-8-3 and three blocks.
Enes Kanter, C, Portland Trail Blazers
With Jusuf Nurkic out for the season and C.J. McCollum also in the shelf, Kanter has been inserted into the starting lineup with excellent results. He had 20 points and 15 rebounds and will most likely see minutes in the mid-20s from here on out. Damian Lillard needs some help and Kanter will provide it.
