Anderson looks good in preseason win 10-21-2014
Kyle Anderson F SA
Kyle Anderson started with multiple Spurs starters out in Monday's 106-99 exhibition win over the Kings, scoring 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. It's not fair but Anderson falling to the Spurs looks like another win for the organization. He won't have any fantasy value to start the year but keep his name in your mental Rolodex for down the line.
Cousins triple-doubles with turnovers vs. SA 10-21-2014
DeMarcus Cousins C SAC
DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) triple-doubled with turnovers in Monday's preseason loss to the Spurs, scoring 32 points on 12-of-14 shooting with 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and a whopping 10 turnovers. Five of those turnovers were offensive fouls in a quintessential Boogie game tonight. The Spurs rested Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter (calf) was out, so they had nobody that could even remotely control him. He's going to be a thrill ride this season. His Achilles' injury is not a concern.
Gay (ankle) having shot selection issues 10-21-2014
Rudy Gay F SAC
Rudy Gay (ankle) got back on the floor in Monday's preseason game against the Spurs, scoring 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting (10-of-12 FTs) with seven rebounds and one block in 32 minutes. This wasn't a bad line but it was worth noting that Gay was taking bad shots that have characterized 'Bad Rudy' in past years. Isaiah Thomas kept him from doing that, but he's no longer there and prospective owners should keep in mind that his field goal percentage could slip this year.
Landry (knee) returns to action on Monday 10-21-2014
Carl Landry F SAC
Carl Landry (knee) returned to action on Monday, scoring 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting (5-of-5 FTs) with seven rebounds and no steals or blocks in 18 minutes. This is a Landry line if we've seen one. He'll need to have a bunch more before we recommend to owners that they deal with his fantasy deficient stat-set in standard leagues.
Horford up to 24 minutes in Monday's game 10-21-2014
Al Horford F ATL
Al Horford played 24 minutes in the Hawks' 117-114 overtime win in Monday's exhibition against the Hornets, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with six rebounds and one steal. Horford continues to slowly ramp up his minutes and if all goes well he'll be able to show he's 100 percent healthy at some point this week. Expecting him to roll right into his top-end productivity levels is a bit optimistic, but he should settle in eventually and secure early round value.
Zeller goes for 18 and eight in start 10-21-2014
Cody Zeller F CHA
Cody Zeller started for Marvin Williams (rest) in Monday's exhibition game against the Hawks, scoring 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds and five assists before fouling out in 30 minutes. Zeller will have a larger role in the rotation this year but he's not breaking out anytime soon, at least not on the strength of this one meaningless preseason game. If this becomes a habit this week we'll let you know, but he's hands off in standard leagues until further notice. Bismack Biyombo falls in the same boat with his 10 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in 30 minutes.
