Charlotte Hornets Fantasy Spin

Malik Monk dropped 24 points in a 128-109 loss to the Clippers on Monday, adding one rebound and four triples in 21 minutes. Maybe this will help him get out of coach Borrego's doghouse, but this doesn't move the needle much on his rest-of-season outlook. 19 of his points came in garbage time. and the Hornets just got Jeremy Lamb back from his hamstring injury. Ignore Monk unless he does it again.

Portland Trail Blazers Fantasy Spin

Dame Lillard (elbow) is available for Friday against the Hornets. At the end of the fourth quarter on Wednesday, Dame was grabbing his left elbow as he checked out when the game was decided. There didn't seem to be much concern among the training staff at the time, so Lillard should be ready to go in a exciting matchup against Kemba Walker. He should be a full go and could be an option in DFS, as well.
