NBA: Caris LeVert admits 'gratefulness' following NBA return 46 days after  surgery to remove cancerous mass - CNN

LeBron. Le Cordon Bleu. Le Diplomate. Le Creuset. Le Meruice. Le Meridien. Le PS5. Le Los Angeles Lakers. Le just means The but that doesn’t diminish its greatness. It’s the first one written, first one seen, first one spoken, and introduces all things, big or small. With that said, only a select few are blessed with the Le. In France, not so much but in the good ole’ US of A, it’s akin to finding Coke in a glass bottle. LeVert, as in Caris LeVert has been great and looks to have finally found his footing in Indiana. Two games ago, he went for 34 points, two tres, five boards, three dimes, one steal, and three blocks. For an encore, he went bonkers again….

….in 36 minutes. The usage rate was a whopping 29. Over the last four games, LeVert has been a top 15 player. Houston sure could use a player of his caliber.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

Since arriving in LA, Dre has played 24, 25, 23, and 27 minutes. He’s grabbed double-digit boards in each game and contributed the defensive stats. Just no points. He’s going to get a ton of cheapies when LeBron and AD return to the mix. That’s going to be fun.

Brad Wanamaker

4 1 5 1 1 2 0/2 1/11 2/2

In 23 minutes off the bench. He’s soaking up most of the backup guard minutes with all the injuries. In the last five games, he’s played over 20 minutes and garnered a usage rate above 20 in four of those contests. Last night, it was 27. He just couldn’t buy a bucket or a vowel. Even the prostitute was like, naw.

Kevin Durant

Played 27 minutes and was the Lone 1 as both Kyrie and Harden were out. Since returning to action, KD has played 10, 24, and 27 minutes. It looks like he’ll be above 30 in no time.

Joe Harris

When two of the Big 3 are out, Joe is definitely not average, as he often garners a usage rate above 20.

This M & M has been delicious, like the green ones. Wait, they all taste the same? Naw, the green ones are for sure the best ones. Morris has scored 22 and 33 points in the last two games. His ability to shoot opens up the floor for Kawhi and PG.

Paul George

With no Kawhi on the floor, PG becomes X-rated with a usage bump of over 7 percent to 37. Last night? 37 usage rate. Stats are cool. PG is on quite the heater, scoring over 30 points in four straight games. He’s been a top-five player over the last six games.

If only he would contribute more in the defensive cats. Then this Malcolm wouldn’t be stuck in the fantasy middle.

6th in the NBA for dub-dubs. This is why Chris Boucher will have difficulty being a full-time starter at center. He just gets bodied and bullied down low.

Brandon Goodwin

18 5 3 2 0 4 3/4 6/12 3/6

Second straight start for Trae and Goodwin delivered the goods again. When Trae plays, he rarely gets off the pine so maybe he should become an Uber Eats driver on the side. He’s scored 18 and 17 points while providing tres, boards, and dimes.

Has started three of the last four games because Kyle Lowry has been out. He’s basically Fred VanVleet. What happens when Lowry moves on to another team next year and Flynn and FVV share the backcourt? Will the space/time continuum be able to handle it? Will the Matrix crash because it cannot compute?

Over the last three games, Kemba has been a top 40 player, averaging 36.1 minutes, 17.3 points, 2.3 tres, 6.7 boards, 7.3 dimes, and 1.3 steals. The big bugaboo is the 39% shooting from the field. Outside of that, this Walker label has been smooth to the last drop.

    I’m in 3rd place and will probably win this but not by enough to get second place and a bye next week. I’m also out of FAAB. My question is what do I do about Lowry and Okeke?

    Lowry’s one of two PG eligible players I have but he’s being rested on back to back nights, and only plays 2 games next week. Do I play a wait and see approach? Okeke was doing so well, and I can keep him at an 11th round price, but Orlando tanking and Cole Anthony being back took touches away, even before the hip. My league doesn’t do FAs, just waivers M-W-F.

    Available Playerss: Campazzo, Flynn, McConnell, R-Jax, Barton, Ingles, J-Harris, Dort, Finney-Smith, Crowder, Nance

    (My biggest cat need is probably FT%, fwiw. And if our available players pool looks rich, it’s because we have anti-tanking rules that limit what people can do with rosters once they get eliminated.)

    Team in a 12-team, h2h, 9-cat keeper
    Lowry, Smart, Lamelo, Beal, D-Rob, SlowMo, Bridges, Okeke, Wood, Jokic, Vala
    (Lamelo and Wood are both keepers for next year)

      There are some good options there. I think Reggie Jackson and Will Barton are must haves right now.

    Do you like Jasean Tate or Jalen McDaniels tonight more?

      I like them both. Lean towards Tate though

      • J says:
        (link)

        Also I could play Nance who’s coming off a pretty long break, guess I kind of want to wait to see what his minutes look like there with K Love back

        • Son

          I’d hold off on Nance. Sorry, got to this so late
