Last week’s suggestions:
Nerlens Noel (48%) – Unfortunately for Noel owners, the Thunder didn’t trade Adams. Yet, he’s been useful either way, with a blocked shot in every game of this calendar year. Keep an eye on minutes, hasn’t hit 20 in three straight.
Glenn Robinson III (33%) – Dealt to Philly, Good landing spot. Watch closely.
Danuel House Jr. (32%) – Good steals numbers lately, minutes no issue, consistency is.
Trevor Ariza (36%) – Better in real life, so far for Portland, than fantasy.
Cody Zeller (45%) – Charlotte released MKG and Marvin Williams, but center rotation is still the same. Very very low ceiling end of bench option. Hasn’t had a great year so far.
Jalen Brunson (23%) – Averaging almost 17 ppg over last 5 games. Luka will return soon, which means Brunson’s value is nearing its end. He’s been productive for the owners which managed to grab him in time. 
Patty Mills (8%) – A stinker for every two good games. End of bench option.
Shake Milton (7%) – Minutes down to 13 in last game vs the Bulls, with Josh Richardson coming back from his hamstring injury. Drop.
Jae Crowder (22%) – Had a fun first game with Butler sidelined. I think he could be useful, albeit inconsistent.
Terence Davis (4%) – Too much fun.

picked up Gary Trent, I think he has a good chance to be a factor towards the end of the season given how thin the Blazers bench is....

Also dropping Nance for Wagner, although it really hurts after holding on to him for so long

How do we feel about Theis for this week. Came back from his injury and he was playing really well before that. 4 game week as well and the Celtics didn't end up picking up a big man in trade deadline which speaks to their confidence in Theis/Kanter.

Scoop him for the Tues thurs pseudo b2b... hold him past asb to see how minutes turn out but his schedule this week is valuable within itself

If he can play ~25 minutes even after Robert Williams returns, I'd say he'll be a solid top 80-100 play ROS in 9-cat leagues.
