12/14/2017 Justise Winslow, Mia, F
Winslow left Wednesday's game with knee tightness that doesn't seem to be too serious.

Analysis: Winslow went scoreless in his time on the floor, and at 6.6 points per contest is not much of a fantasy option.

12/13/2017 Tyson Chandler, Pho, C
Tyson Chandler scored seven points Tuesday on 2-of-3 shooting as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Sacramento Kings 99-92. Chandler grabbed 10 rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -12 in his 29:21 of playing time. He added two blocks and one steal.

Analysis: It's the third time in Chandler's last four games in which he's recorded double-digit rebounds, and he's averaging 11 boards while shooting 70 percent on his rather limited field goal opportunities during that stretch. The veteran center won't score much but remains a useful source on the glass, though keep in mind he's missed eight of the Suns' last 18 games for various reasons.
12/13/2017 Troy Daniels, Pho, G
Troy Daniels scored nine points Tuesday, going 3 of 10 from the field, as the Phoenix Suns lost to the Sacramento Kings 99-92. Daniels did not grab a rebound but had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of +9 in his 27:57 of playing time. Daniels went 3 of 10 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Daniels has now received consistent playing time in four straight games and is averaging 10.5 points while going 10 of 29 from beyond the arc during that stretch. Though a one-trick pony for fantasy purposes, he should continue to get a chance to fill the Suns' need for outside shooting for as long as Devin Booker remains sidelined.
12/13/2017 Mike James, Pho, PG
Mike James scored 17 points Tuesday on 7-of-12 shooting as the Phoenix Suns fell to the Sacramento Kings 99-92. James pulled down one rebound and had five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 19:40 on the floor. James went 1 of 3 from behind the arc.

Analysis: After pouring in 25 points in 29 minutes Saturday against the Spurs, James delivered another high-volume spark off the bench in this one. The offseason find averaged just 6.2 points on 34.9 percent shooting during a six-game slump that preceded Saturday's outburst, so he's still anything but a sure thing.
12/13/2017 Zach Randolph, Sac, F-C
Zach Randolph scored 17 points Tuesday on 7-of-14 shooting as the Sacramento Kings defeated the Phoenix Suns 99-92. Randolph pulled down seven rebounds and had five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 27:34 of playing time. He tacked on one steal.

Analysis: Randolph netted 11 points over the final five minutes to spark the Kings and turn a nondescript stat line into another good one. Z-Bo has completely turned back the clock in December, with the 36-year-old averaging an impressive 22.7 points on 59.4 percent shooting along with 10.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists in six games this month.
12/13/2017 George Hill, Sac, G
George Hill scored 18 points Tuesday, going 6 of 9 from the field, as the Sacramento Kings defeated the Phoenix Suns 99-92. Hill pulled down seven rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +12 in his 28:00 on the floor. He tacked on three steals. Hill went 2 of 3 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Back after missing one game for a personal matter, Hill delivered one of his best performances in a Kings uniform. The veteran is still averaging a pedestrian 8.9 points and 2.3 assists over his last eight games while sharing time in a crowded backcourt, so he probably won't be an appealing fantasy option unless the Kings decide to showcase him for a potential trade.
12/13/2017 Buddy Hield, Sac, SG
Buddy Hield scored 14 points Tuesday, going 6 of 14 from the field, as the Sacramento Kings topped the Phoenix Suns 99-92. Hield grabbed two rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +5 in his 25:07 on the floor. Hield went 2 of 5 from behind the arc.

Analysis: Hield continues to supply offensive punch off the bench, having averaged 17 points and 4.4 rebounds while going 15 of 27 (55.6 percent) from 3-point range over a five-game streak of double-figure scoring efforts. Though not the most well-rounded of fantasy guards, the former Oklahoma star is as close to a sure thing the Kings have.
