Lakers' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Scores season-high 21 points in victory
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, G, LAL
6:56 AM
News: Caldwell-Pope finished with 21 points (6-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and three steals across 39 minutes in Tuesday's 103-94 victory over the Bulls.

Caldwell-Pope was good again on Tuesday, collecting a season-high 21 points on just 11 field-goal attempts. He is beginning to find his role on the team, scoring in double figures in five consecutive games, while also averaging 2.2 steals over that same period. He is locked into big minutes, and with his defensive upside, he is a player worth owning in most leagues.

Kyle Kuzma
Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Leads team with 22 points
Kyle Kuzma, F, LAL
6:50 AM
News: Kuzma tallied 22 points (7-15 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-7 FT), five assists and three rebounds in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 103-94 victory over Chicago.

Kuzma continued his strong start to the season, pouring in another 22 points. He has been a real surprise so far, currently leading the team in scoring with an average of 16.8 points per game. While he does not provide much else, he did collect a season-high five assists, as he looked to get his teammates involved a bit more. Larry Nance (thumb) is due back soon, which could take some time away from Kuzma. However, given his play of late, he is still going to see significant time on the floor, warranting a roster spot in most leagues.

Lonzo Ball
Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Inefficient again in victory
Lonzo Ball, G, LAL
6:44 AM
News: Ball finished with just eight points (3-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt), 13 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 103-94 victory over Chicago.

Ball struggled from the field again, hitting just 3-of-13 shots. While most rookie point-guards have issues with their efficiency, his numbers have been almost catastrophic. He is currently at 30.8 percent from the floor, and 46.2 percent from the charity stripe. If you can overlook these glaring weaknesses, he has provided excellent rebounds, assists, and steals and there is no reason to think that this will change moving forward.

Analysis: 

Denzel Valentine
Bulls' Denzel Valentine: Plays 38 minutes in loss
Denzel Valentine, F, CHI
6:38 AM
News: Valentine finished with 17 points (6-12 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and two steals in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 103-94 loss to the Lakers.

Valentine received the start once again, leading the team in scoring with an efficient 17 points. He has now played over 30 minutes in three consecutive games, a good indication that he has the confidence of the coaching staff. His increased role has also allowed him to play more of a facilitating role, taking some of the pressure off Kris Dunn. His numbers appear to be on the rise, and he is worth grabbing if you need a guard who can provide a bit of everything.

Analysis: 

Lauri Markkanen
Bulls' Lauri Markkanen: Double-doubles in loss
Lauri Markkanen, F, CHI
6:33 AM
News: Markkanen posted 13 points (4-7 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and one block across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 103-94 loss to the Lakers.

Markkanen put up his second consecutive double-double, collecting a career-high 14 rebounds in the process. Owners have got to be loving his output so far, currently leading the team in both points and rebounds. He is not as efficient as some typical big men, but given he shoots so many three-pointers, this is to be expected. Coach Fred Hoiberg has stated that Markkanen will remain the starter, even when Nikola Mirotic (face) returns to action, giving his owners confidence that he can continue his excellent rookie campaign.

Analysis: 

David Nwaba
Bulls' David Nwaba: Will remain out Tuesday
David Nwaba, G, CHI
11/21/2017
News: Nwaba (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers.

Nwaba was considered doubtful heading into Tuesday's contest, so this was the expected move all along. With the Bulls currently starting a back-to-back set, it wouldn't be surprising if Nwaba was also held out for Wednesday's tilt with the Jazz, though tentatively consider him questionable for the time being.

Analysis: 

Jerian Grant
Bulls' Jerian Grant: Will come off bench Tuesday
Jerian Grant, G, CHI
11/21/2017
News: Grant will play a reserve role in Tuesday's game versus the Lakers, Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports.

Second year guard Kris Dunn will replace Grant in the starting lineup. He is coming off one of his worst games of the season in Sunday's loss to the Suns, while Dunn is coming off a couple of his best games, so it is not surprising to see the Bulls make the switch to one of their offseason acquisitions. It will be Grant's first time coming off the bench this season, but if Dunn continues to play well it is a trend that could continue.

Analysis: 

Kris Dunn
Bulls' Kris Dunn: Will start at point guard Tuesday
Kris Dunn, G, CHI
11/21/2017
News: Dunn will get the start at point guard for Tuesday's tilt against the Lakers, Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports.

Dunn is coming off two of the best games of his young career, and will now get his second start of the season. He racked up 19.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists, and 2.5 steals across 26.7 minutes off the bench in the aforementioned two-game stretch. Jerian Grant will slide to a reserve role as a result of Dunn's emergence in the starting lineup.

Analysis: 

Buddy Hield
Kings' Buddy Hield: Listed as probable for Wednesday
Buddy Hield, G, SAC
11/21/2017
News: Hield (ankle) is probable to play in Wednesday's game against the Lakers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

This was the expected designation after Hield was able to put in a full practice Tuesday. If all goes as planned, look for Hield to take on his usual role off the bench on the wing, which should result in a few less minutes for the likes of Garrett Temple, Bogdan Bogdanovich and Malachi Richardson.

Analysis: 

Vince Carter
Kings' Vince Carter: Probable Wednesday vs. Lakers
Vince Carter, G, SAC
11/21/2017
News: Carter (illness) is officially listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Carter was a full participant in practice Tuesday after missing seven games with kidney stones, so it's not all too surprising that he's expected to play. A final call will likely be made following Wednesday's morning shootaround, but if all goes as planned, Carter should slot in as depth on the wing. That said, with an average of just 12.0 minutes per game this season, he'll remain off the fantasy radar.
