11/20/2017 Wilson Chandler, Den, G-F
Wilson Chandler scored 17 points Sunday, going 5 of 10 from the field, as the Denver Nuggets lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 127-109. Chandler grabbed four rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -14 in his 26:32 on the floor. He added one block and one steal. Chandler went 3 of 7 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Chandler's resurgence continues, as he's shooting 54.1 percent while averaging 14.8 points and six rebounds over a run of four consecutive double figure scoring performances. The veteran forward averaged just 7.7 points and four boards through 12 games leading up to this surge.
11/20/2017 Brook Lopez, LAL, C
Brook Lopez scored 21 points Sunday on 9-of-14 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Lopez pulled down three rebounds and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 22:24 of playing time. He added two blocks. Lopez went 3 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Lopez has bounced back from Wednesday's 3-of-12, 8-point dud against Philadelphia by amassing 40 points on 63 percent shooting over his last two outings. Though one of the weaker rebounding centers around, the 29-year-old is averaging 18 points and two blocks during a 10-game stretch in which he's 18 of 47 (38.3 percent) from beyond the arc.
11/20/2017 Jordan Clarkson, LAL, G
Jordan Clarkson scored 18 points Sunday on 7-of-12 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Clarkson grabbed three rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +11 in his 24:09 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.

Analysis: Clarkson was held to a season-low four points Friday against Phoenix, but he's still averaging 16.8 over his last four games from his sixth-man role. The combo guard has been a consistent source of scoring, recording double-figure points in 14 of the season's first 17 games, but hasn't made a significant impact in any other fantasy categories.
11/20/2017 Josh Hart, LAL, SG
Josh Hart scored three points Sunday, going 1 of 2 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Hart pulled down two rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +4 in his 12:10 on the floor. He tacked on one steal.
11/20/2017 Corey Brewer, LAL, G-F
Corey Brewer scored three points Sunday on 1-of-3 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Brewer pulled down one rebound and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +11 in his 14:54 of playing time. He tacked on four steals.
11/20/2017 Julius Randle, LAL, F-C
Julius Randle scored 24 points Sunday, going 11 of 18 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Randle pulled down seven rebounds and had five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +27 in his 31:44 of playing time. Randle went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Randle entered Sunday's matchup kind of cold, having averaged a pedestrian 9.7 points on 35.5 percent shooting over his previous three games, but racked up 17 on 8-of-12 shooting during a monster first half en route to a season high. The physical forward is quite capable of more performances like this one, though his minutes tend to vary due to the emergence of rookie Kyle Kuzma.
11/20/2017 Lonzo Ball, LAL, PG
Lonzo Ball scored 11 points Sunday on 5-of-13 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Ball pulled down 16 rebounds and had 11 assists, tallying a plus-minus of +29 in his 39:54 on the floor. He added two blocks. Ball went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Ball also turned it over just twice while joining Magic Johnson as the only Laker rookies with two triple-doubles in a season. The 20-year-old still isn't shooting particularly well, but he's kept on stuffing the stat sheet with averages of 8.7 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 2.2 steals and one block over his last six games.
11/20/2017 Kyle Kuzma, LAL, F
Kyle Kuzma scored 17 points Sunday, going 7 of 11 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Kuzma pulled down three rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 25:39 on the floor. He added one steal. Kuzma went 3 of 4 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Kuzma saw a little less playing time than usual on a night Julius Randle was dominant, but still put forth a highly efficient outing to continue his strong play during the Lakers' current homestand. The rookie is averaging a terrific 23.7 points and 6.7 rebounds while shooting 51.9 percent from the field and going 6 of 15 on 3-pointers in three games on the residency.
11/20/2017 Brandon Ingram, LAL, G-F
Brandon Ingram scored 13 points Sunday on 5-of-13 shooting as the Los Angeles Lakers topped the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Ingram grabbed five rebounds and had six assists, tallying a plus-minus of 0 in his 28:49 of playing time. Ingram went 1 of 3 from 3-point range.
11/20/2017 Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, LAL, G-F
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 15 points Sunday, going 6 of 13 from the field, as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Denver Nuggets 127-109. Caldwell-Pope grabbed five rebounds and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 35:27 of playing time. He added one block and four steals. Caldwell-Pope went 3 of 9 from 3-point range.
11/20/2017 Joel Embiid, Phi, F-C
Embiid (left knee soreness) is available for Monday's game against the Jazz.

Analysis: The 76ers have been super cautious with the big man in the past, driving fantasy owners batty.
11/20/2017 Jamal Crawford, Min, G-F
Crawford will play Monday at Charlotte after dealing with a migraine headache in his last outing.

Analysis: Crawford was only able to play six minutes in a loss to the Pistons on Sunday. His 8.9 points per game is his lowest scoring average since his rookie year in 2000-01.
11/20/2017 Wilson Chandler, Den, G-F
Chandler is dealing with a sore lower back and will miss Monday's game at Sacramento.

Analysis: Chandler did score 17 points in 27 minutes against the Lakers on Sunday, so it's believed he's dealing with only a day-to-day issue. His absence does leave the Nuggets a bit thin in the frontcourt, however, as Paul Millsap also won't play Monday due to a sprained wrist.
11/20/2017 E'Twaun Moore, NO, G-F
Moore will return to the starting lineup Monday against the Thunder.

Analysis: Moore started the first 14 games before coming off the bench in the last two. The combo guard has hit on 59.3 percent of his field goal attempts while averaging 16.2 points over a string of five straight double-digit scoring efforts.
11/20/2017 Dante Cunningham, NO, F
Cunningham will not start for the first time this season Monday against the Thunder.

Analysis: He averaged 5.4 points and 3.6 rebounds while starting the first 16 games.
11/20/2017 Mike Muscala, Atl, F-C
Muscala will remain out for Monday's game at San Antonio due to a lingering ankle sprain.

Analysis: Muscala hasn't played since Nov. 3, though he was active for the Hawks' loss to Boston on Saturday. The reserve big man may be out of the rotation regardless with Miles Plumlee now back from a quad injury.
11/20/2017 T.J. McConnell, Phi, PG
T.J. McConnell scored eight points Monday, going 3 of 6 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Utah Jazz 107-86. McConnell grabbed three rebounds and had five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +17 in his 33:39 of playing time. He added one steal.
11/20/2017 Dario Saric, Phi, F-C
Dario Saric scored five points Monday, going 2 of 5 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Utah Jazz 107-86. Saric grabbed seven rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +15 in his 23:58 on the floor. He added one steal.
11/20/2017 Jerryd Bayless, Phi, G
Jerryd Bayless scored five points Monday on 2-of-3 shooting as the Philadelphia 76ers topped the Utah Jazz 107-86. Bayless pulled down two rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 16:27 on the floor.
11/20/2017 Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot, Phi, G-F
Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot scored six points Monday, going 3 of 4 from the field, as the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Utah Jazz 107-86. Luwawu-Cabarrot pulled down three rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +11 in his 16:03 of playing time.
