New Orleans Pelicans Fantasy Spin

Anthony Davis (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz. Davis sat out Saturday's game but that was planned rest in the second half of a back-to-back set. His 'questionable' tag for Monday is ominous since the Pelicans have no incentive to play him at less than 100 percent, but we'll know more after shootaround. If he sits out Cheick Diallo, Julius Randle and Jahlil Okafor all get a boost.

Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin

Donovan Mitchell had a signature night during a thrilling 115-111 win over the Bucks on Saturday, scoring a career-high 46 points with three rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes. The Jazz looked to be dead down 90-73 with 9:39 left, but then Donovan Mitchell happened. He scored 19 points in the final 8:10 as the home squad surged for this big win against the NBA's No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Mitchell is starting his second half on fire, averaging 33.0 points, 5.4 boards, 5.2 dimes, 0.8 blocks and 3.6 treys on a 34.1 usage rate. His coaching staff is treating him like an offensive superstar and big things look to be ahead.
