It’s time for Dyson Daniels to shine

Embiid responds to Harden’s ‘shadow’ leaving Philly

Natalie and Callie Lawson-Freeman analyze Joel Embiid’s response to James Harden’s “dark” comments after leaving Philadelphia, offering praise but also repeatedly mentioning the team that gave Harden the ball.

After a five-game Sunday, the NBA will be much busier on Monday. There will be no games on Tuesday due to Election Day, which means there will be 12 games on Monday and 14 games on Wednesday. When there are so many games, there usually isn’t much need for streaming options since most of your stars should be playing. However, here are seven players worth considering for a roster spot.

Dyson Daniels – 5%

CJ McCollum was diagnosed with pneumothorax in his right lung on Sunday, and was diagnosed with the same in the same lung in December 2021. That resulted in him missing 18 games in a row during that period. He will undergo more tests, but if he ends up missing a large portion of games, Daniels will be worth selecting. In their last game, he posted a 7/3/5/1/1 line with a triple in 22 minutes off the bench. If he starts in place of McCollum, he should play more than enough to provide standard league value.

Malaki Branham – 3%

It’s unclear how long Devin Vassell (groin) will be sidelined, but Branham started in his place in their last game. Vassell is not expected to play Monday, so Branham should get a fresh start after finishing 16/6/2 on 8-for-9 shooting against Toronto on Sunday.

Marcus Sasser – 11%

With Jaden Ivey sidelined, Sasser could play a bigger role off the bench on Sunday. In 30 minutes, Sasser finished with 22 points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal and four triples. They play again on Monday and Sasser should play a big role again, assuming Ivey stays out. Even with Ivey back, Sasser has played too well not to continue getting enough minutes.

Goga Bitadze – 10%

Although many expected Moritz Wagner to start in place of Wendell Carter Jr. (finger), it was Bitadze who got the first crack at center, while WCJ would miss at least the next three weeks. Bitadze played 26 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday and finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and five blocks.

Cason Wallace – 3%

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will remain sidelined on Monday, meaning Wallace will have to remain in the starting squad. He contributed thirteen points, two rebounds, one assist and one triple against the Warriors on Friday. The production doesn’t jump off the page, but the minutes and starting reel are both encouraging.

Reggie Jackson – 6%

Jamal Murray left Saturday’s game against Chicago early due to a hamstring injury. He remains out on Monday, meaning Jackson will have to start at point guard in his place. The veteran played 25 minutes off the bench in their last game, posting a 16/1/3 line with a block and three three-pointers.

Bismack Biyombo- 2%

Shortly after tip-off, the Grizzlies ruled out Xavier Tillman (knee), even though reports indicated he would start at center. That resulted in Biyombo starting and he contributed eight points, 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. If Tillman remains sidelined, Biyombo will be a solid streaming option.
