  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Tallies six steals in loss

    Daniels totaled six points (3-14 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one block and six steals over 34 minutes during Saturday's 105-100 loss to the Jazz.

    Daniels was a beast on the defensive end despite the loss, racking up a career-high six steals to go with one block. Unfortunately, he shot just 3-for-14 from the field, somewhat negating his defensive masterclass. Nonetheless, he remains a must-roster player across most formats, at least until CJ McCollum (chest) returns from his injury.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Continues stint in starting lineup

    Daniels amassed seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), eight rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 116-106 victory over the Clippers.

    The 2022 first-round pick has failed to meet expectations of being the eighth overall pick during his tenure with the Pelicans, partly due to a lack of playing time. He has an opportunity to impress during CJ McCollum's (chest) absence, but Daniels hasn't excelled during his time in the starting lineup. The Aussie is averaging 9.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals through nine starts. The multi-category input is somewhat encouraging and has provided a streaming opportunity, but his fantasy outlook is mediocre at best, especially once McCollum returns. Jordan Hawkins has provided more of an offensive punch in McCollum's place and might retain a bigger rotation spot than Daniels when McCollum returns.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Logs team-high 37 minutes

    Daniels produced 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Timberwolves.

    Daniels continues to start at point guard for the Pelicans, putting together the best stretch of his young career. Over the past two weeks, he has averaged 10.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.1 three-pointers, good enough for top-75 value in standard leagues. As long as he is running with the opening unit, Daniels needs to be rostered in all leagues.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Solid all-around effort Friday

    Daniels notched 10 points (4-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals over 33 minutes during Friday's 115-110 win over Denver.

    Daniels has done an admirable job filling in for CJ McCollum (chest) and continues to make an impact on both ends of the court. He has scored in double digits in four consecutive appearances and is averaging 10.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 2.2 steals per game since moving to a starting role.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Solid showing in blowout win

    Daniels ended Tuesday's 131-110 victory over the Mavericks with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six assists, three steals and two rebounds in 29 minutes.

    Daniels has drawn four straight starts with CJ McCollum (ribs) sidelined. During that stretch, the second-year wing has averaged 11.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.0 steals in 33.0 minutes per game. With McCollum slated to miss extended time, Daniels should have a clear path to consistent playing time moving froward.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Sets career high with 17 points

    Daniels generated 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt), nine rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes in Sunday's 136-124 loss to the Mavericks.

    The second-year player picked up his third straight start while the Pelicans were without CJ McCollum (chest), Herbert Jones (leg) and Trey Murphy (knee) and made the most of the opportunity, setting a new career high in scoring. A 43 percent shooter from the field and 32.2 percent shooter from downtown through his first 69 NBA games, Daniels' scoring performance from Sunday probably won't be easily replicable, but he'll have some value in the short term for fantasy managers in need of aid in the rebounds, assists and steals categories. He's averaging 7.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.7 steals through his first three starts.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Balanced outing in first start

    Daniels contributed seven points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and four steals in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 loss to Minnesota.

    Daniels earned his first start of the 2023-24 season Wednesday due to New Orleans dealing with the absence of six players, ending with a team-high steals mark and finishing second in assists in a balanced showcase. Daniels has been a nice contributor mainly off the Pelicans bench this season, averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.4 steals over 23.6 minutes in eight contests.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Starting Wednesday

    Daniels will join the first unit for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Daniels will make his first start of 2023 with six rotation pieces -- including three starters -- sidelined. In seven games, Daniels has logged 7.0 points, 4.1 rebounds 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals/blocks across 22.4 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Contributes to victory

    Daniels ended Wednesday's 110-106 victory over Oklahoma City with eight points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 25 minutes.

    Daniels recorded season-high marks in points, minutes and blocks in Wednesday's win. The second-year guard has seen an uptick in his 17.7 minutes per contest from last year and is now averaging 22.5 minutes across his four appearances in 2023-24. However, Daniels is shooting a poor 35.7 percent from the field and 16.7 percent from three.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Team option exercised

    The Pelicans exercised the third-year team option on Daniels' contract Thursday.

    Daniels had a somewhat limited workload during his rookie season last year, averaging 3.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.7 minutes per game. However, he had some encouraging performances during Summer League play this year, and it's possible he carves out a larger role during his second professional season. Following Thursday's move, he'll be under contract with the Pelicans through the 2024-25 season.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Fills stat sheet

    Daniels totaled 17 points (6-18 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 15 rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and two steals over 29 minutes in Sunday's 94-86 victory over Golden State.

    Daniels struggled a bit with his shot but still produced an impressive stat line. He was stellar on the boards and flashed his playmaking ability while playing his usual stifling defense. After playing just 17.7 minutes per game in 59 appearances last season, Daniels could be in line for an increased role in Year 2 if he continues to contribute at a high level during the summer.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Plays well against Minnesota

    Daniels amassed 18 points (6-14 FG, 0-4 3PT, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block in 31 minutes of Friday's 102-88 Summer League loss to Minnesota.

    New Orleans has a very inexperienced roster for the Summer League, but Daniels played well anyways and looked like a good fit alongside 14th overall pick Jordan Hawkins. Daniels appeared in 59 games for the Pelicans during his rookie season, averaging 3.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 17.7 minutes. He's projected to be the backup point guard behind C.J. McCollum this season, and Friday he looked like he is up for the challenge.
