There won’t be any NBA games on Tuesday to follow Monday’s massive main roster, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to think about. The league will resume play with 13 games on Tuesday, with players ready to return to the court after a one-day break. Need to brush up on some key specs from Monday? We have that along with an ice player to avoid and a trade target to look out for in Week 4 here.
Who is hot
Murray recorded his first triple-double of the year over the weekend and narrowly missed his second in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday. The Atlanta Hawks guard had 25 points, 8 rebounds, 11 assists and 3 steals as Trae Young pulled out with a leg injury. Murray scored more fantastic points than Ja Morant and Tyrese Haliburton despite sharing the backcourt with Young. He has more shots per game (19.7) than ever, and his defense, and only OG Anunoby has more interceptions.
Curry set a season high with 39 points as he ended Week 3 and started Week 4 with 47 points, eight rebounds and eight assists against the Sacramento Kings. He hit at least four threes in four straight games and leads the NBA with 53 threes in 10 games. Curry is close to averaging 32.6 points, shooting 51.2% from the field and 43.1% from deep. Only Luka Doncic has scored more fantasy points among point guards this season.
Randle finished Week 3 on a strong footing and remained hot into Week 4 with 31 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He hit eight triples against Minnesota and averaged 30 points and 8.5 rebounds on 55.9 percent shooting over the previous two games. Randle clearly benefited from Mitchell Robinson missing time with a sprained knee.
Who is not
Bogdanovich started the year as a player capable of averaging 20 points per game on 50/40/90 shooting, but he has fallen in his last three competitions. The Detroit Pistons forward has averaged 10.7 points and 2.3 rebounds on 31.3% shooting since last Wednesday. This small sample size doesn’t indicate a major problem, but fantasy managers might want to keep an eye on him as he struggles to navigate the shooting crisis. In recent years, he has been one of the most reliable shooters in the NBA.
Whom to buy
Hield has been considered a potential trade target by the Los Angeles Lakers since he ended his days with the Sacramento Kings, and he has become even more impressive since moving to the Eastern Conference. The sharpshooter gets everything he wants for the Indiana Pacers and only Stephen Curry has landed more shots than him (42) from three arcs this season. He’s always available and has shot an impressive 42 percent of his long shots while rebounding at an all-time high rate (5.7 boards per contest). He will be an established player whether he stays in Indiana for a year or goes to a rival.
