Josh: Great to see a game like this was awesome shooting. I am not trusting him with consistency though
Sell High Kyle: A big game with a season-high 27 points, but I'd be trying to sell-high in most leagues whenever LeVert is playing well.
Kyle: Some good defensive stats in this one, but Tucker is too inconsistent even in big minutes to bother chasing beyond very conditional streaming and deeper leagues.
Josh: Off the bench as he was dealing with a personal issue but numbers were great. Playing well of late
Kyle: Sabonis was dealing with a family matter at tip-off and wasn't available to start but quickly checked into the game and was great.
Kyle: Lowry scored a season-high 26 points, picking up some of the slack left from Butler and Bam's absences.
Josh: Season-high in scoring but not much else and he remains just a streamer
Sell High Kyle: Robinson scored a season-high 24 points, and it was good to see a big performance from him, but he's too inconsistent to look at as more than a specialist or streamer for most leagues, so this is a sell-high moment if possible.
Josh: Interesting he played over Okpala. Could be a deep stream, but I am not feeling confident with the backup rotation
Watch Kyle: The Yurt got decent bench run and played well. While Adebayo is out, Yurt is someone to keep an eye on and to consider as a conditional streamer for very deep leagues. Coach Spoelstra rewards players for good production, so if Dedmon struggles at all while Bam is out, we could get surprised by The Round House over the next month or more.
Josh: This was the concern with Dedmon after a huge first game. Expectations tempered
Kyle: A poor line and low minutes for Dedmon even in a starting role with Bam out. The low minutes may have been by design with the b2b. While Dedmon is fine to hold and continue streaming at least through Saturday, he's also OK to drop as needed going forward for another streamer.
Stream Josh: If Butler is out, Vincent looks like a solid option to stream in
Sell High Kyle: Vincent is somsone to consider as a conditional streamer if Butler is out. He should stick in a modest bench role even when Butler is back, but he's due for a regression in his efficiency, so this is mostly a sell-high stretch for deeper leagues.
Maybe Add 14 teams Josh: With McConnell and Holiday out, Duarte has more value and can even be added in1 2 team leagues, but he likely better suited as a stream option
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: Duarte is starting with Holiday out and is at least worth considering as a streamer, but this is also a sell-high stretch to consider.
Josh: Spot start for Sabonis and once Sabonis was available, Craig didn't play
Kyle: Craig started the game with Sabonis dealing with a family issue at tip-off, but Sabonis was quick to check-in to the game, and Craig was benched. Just a unique situation. Craig will be in a limited bench role most games.
Kyle: Not in the rotation even with Bam and Butler out.
