Carmelo Anthony hit 6-of-13 shots for 14 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes off the bench on Monday.
Melo is going to see some increased opportunity while C.J. McCollum (foot) and Jusuf Nurkic (wrist) are out, but we wouldn't anticipate the defensive stats to become a thing, as he's averaging just 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks per game on the season. The general lack of output in the defensive categories, partnered with his 40.5 shooting percentage on the season limits his upside, but he does provide some low-end value in fantasy hoops thanks to the points (12.2) and triples (1.8).
