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 went 3 of 9 from 3-point range.
11/20/2017 Joel Embiid, Phi, F-C
According to the Philadelphia media, Embiid is questionable for Monday's game due to left knee soreness. He says he expects to play, though the 76ers have been super cautious with the big man in the past.

Analysis: This is the problem with Embiid as he's so good when healthy, but continually has things like this pop up that drives fantasy owners batty.
11/20/2017 Jamal Crawford, Min, G-F
According to the Timberwolves, Crawford is probable for Monday's game 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.
11/20/2017 Wilson Chandler, Den, G-F
According to the team, Chandler is questionable for Monday's game because of lower back pain.

Analysis: Chandler is averaging 14.8 points and six rebounds over his last four games.
11/19/2017 Eric Gordon, Hou, SG

Analysis: Gordon has come off the bench in the last two games since Chris Paul's return and is shooting just 30.3 percent - including 4 of 24 from 3-point range - in his last three contests.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points Saturday, going 7 of 20 from the field, as the Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Dallas Mavericks 111-79.
