Player Notes

  • Bojan Bogdanovic scores 15 points with five treys
    Bojan Bogdanovic hit 5-of-10 shots for 15 points, two rebounds, two assists, five triples and two steals across 26 turnover-less minutes in Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Bogdanovic got off to a brutal start this season, but like a lot of guys, he's really turned the corner in February with averages of 16.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.4 triples and 1.8 turnovers per game on 48.2% shooting from the field and 88.6% from the stripe. Those numbers feel sustainable, so he should be a reliable source of points and triples over this second half of the season. Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 18 points with four treys
    Jordan Clarkson came off the bench for 18 points, four rebounds, two assists and four triples across 24 minutes in Wednesday's blowout win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Clarkson was fairly efficient while he was out there, going 6-of-13 from the floor and 2-of-2 from the stripe, and he also finished the game without committing a single turnover. He's been a steady, top-70 producer this season with averages of 18.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.3 triples, 1.0 steal and 1.8 turnovers per game on 45.7% shooting, so he has to be an early frontrunner in the Sixth Man of the Year race. Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Rudy Gobert scores 18 points over 27 minutes
    Rudy Gobert produced 18 points, nine rebounds, one block and three turnovers across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 114-89 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Gobert dominated the Lakers, going 8-of-12 from the field and 2-of-3 from the stripe, and he probably would have had an even more impressive stat line if it weren't for the blowout nature of the game. Derrick Favors didn't miss a shot in his 17 minutes off the bench, going 5-of-5 from the floor and 2-of-4 from the line for 12 points, seven rebounds and one turnover in the easy win. Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Donovan Mitchell posts 13/10/8 line in win
    Donovan Mitchell struggled with his shot in Wednesday's win over the Lakers, going 4-of-16 from the floor for 13 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two triples and two steals over 31 minutes.

    Advice: Mitchell got off to a brutal start in this game, going just 1-of-8 from the field through the first half of action, but he was able to turn it around a bit after halftime and he finished the game with just one turnover. Mike Conley was the opposite of Mitchell tonight, as he couldn't miss through the first half (5-of-5 FG) but then couldn't get anything after halftime (0-of-5 FG) and he finished with 14 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four triples, two steals and three turnovers in the blowout win. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores 12 points with nine boards
    Markieff Morris scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting (2-of-4 FT) as a starter on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, one assist and one turnover across 28 minutes in a blowout loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: Morris replaced Kyle Kuzma in the first unit today, and he was the Lakers' third-leading scorer with 12 points, which tells you the kind of game it was. Kuzma was nearly invisible in his 25 minutes off the bench, going 2-of-7 from the floor for five points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and two turnovers in the loss. It'll be interesting to see who gets the start on Friday vs. Portland. Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Talen Horton-Tucker nets eight inefficient points
    Talen Horton-Tucker struggled in a spot-start vs. the Jazz on Wednesday, going 3-of-12 from the field for eight points, five rebounds, five assists, two triples and three turnovers across 30 minutes.

    Advice: THT replaced Wesley Matthews in the first unit tonight, but neither guy played well, with Matthews going 1-of-4 from distance for three points, two assists and one steal over 17 minutes. The Lakers are desperate for offense right now with Anthony Davis (calf) and Dennis Schroder (quarantine) unavailable, although Schroder could be back for Friday's game. Horton-Tucker and Matthews are obviously not worth rostering in most leagues. Yesterday, 10:27 pm
  • LeBron James scores 19 points in blowout loss
    LeBron James netted 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting (4-of-5 FT) Wednesday, to go with four rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and four turnovers across 28 minutes in a blowout loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: The Lakers have now lost five of their past six games, and they're currently riding a four-game losing streak. James didn't get much help from his teammates tonight, with Markieff Morris (12) and Montrezl Harrell (16) being the only other players to crack double figures in the scoring department, and as a team, L.A. shot just 40% from the field. They had a tough matchup tonight against the No. 1 seed out West, but maybe they'll be able to right the ship on Friday vs. Portland. Yesterday, 10:17 pm

    LeBron James LAL - PG,SG,SF
  • Mikal Bridges nets 12 points w/ full line in loss
    Mikal Bridges went 4-of-9 from the floor and 2-of-4 from the stripe for 12 points, four rebounds, two assists, two triples, one steal, two swats and just one turnover across 35 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: Bridges failed to record a steal his last time out, but he got right back on track in that department tonight, and he's been doing a better job with the swipes lately. Over the past six games, Bridges has been flirting with top 50 value behind averages of 13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.2 triples, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and just 0.7 turnovers per contest on 58.3% shooting. Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Cameron Johnson scores 14 points with two treys
    Cameron Johnson produced 14 points (5-of-11 FG, 2-of-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers, one steal and two turnovers in 30 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: With all the forwards healthy in Phoenix, Johnson’s minutes had been trending in the wrong direction, but tonight he was able to clear the 30-minute mark for the first time since Feb. 1. He’s serviceable as a 3-point specialist in extremely deep leagues, but the inconsistent role and production have him off the radar in standard formats. Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Chris Paul double-doubles in narrow loss to CHA
    Chris Paul posted a 20-point, 10-assist double-double in Wednesday's 124-121 loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: CP3 was held to just two points on 1-of-9 shooting his last time out, but he was much more efficient in this one, finishing 7-of-14 from the floor and 3-of-4 from the stripe to go with eight rebounds, three triples, one steal, one block and three turnovers. The Suns had their three-game win streak snapped tonight, but they'll look to right the ship on Friday in Chicago. Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Devin Booker nets 33 points in loss to Charlotte
    Devin Booker dropped in a game-high 33 points on 13-of-24 shooting (3-of-4 FT) Wednesday, to go with three assists, four triples, one steal and an unfortunate five turnovers in a loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: Booker got off to a hot start in this one, dropping in a quick 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting through his first nine minutes of play, making it his fourth-straight home game where he's recorded at least 16 points through the first quarter of play. Phoenix came into this one riding a three-game win streak, and they nearly got their fourth straight win tonight, but the refs missed an obvious foul by Gordon Hayward on Booker's final shot attempt which caused him to miss — and the Suns lost the game. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Zach LaVine hits 14-of-21 shots for 35 points
    Zach LaVine celebrated making his first All-Star team by torching the Wolves for 35 points, five 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists on 14-of-21 shooting on Wednesday. 

    Advice: Yeah, he had seven turnovers, but LaVine has really changed his game over the years and has become one of the league's most efficient shooters and scorers. Prior to tonight's explosion, he was shooting a career-high 52 percent from the floor, a career-high 43 percent from downtown and a career-high 84.4 percent from the line while averaging a career-best 28.6 points. And all of those numbers are going up in the morning. Congratulations on your first All-Star Game, Zach. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky logs just 12 minutes as a starter
    Frank Kaminsky saw just 12 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, finishing with six points, three rebounds and one assist in a loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: With Kaminsky as Phoenix’s starting center, they have gone 9-1, so he should continue to start for the Suns. However, he’s only averaging 8.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 triples per game as a starter in 19.3 minutes a night, so he’s not worth your attention in the vast majority of leagues. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. does it all in win over Wolves
    Wendell Carter Jr. hit 6-of-8 shots, a 3-pointer and 4-of-4 free throws for 17 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes of Wednesday's OT win over Minnesota. 

    Advice: It's too bad he can't play the Wolves every night, but Carter has now double-doubled in two straight games and has four steals and five blocks in them. He was dropped in a ton of leagues when he went down with his quad injury in mid-January and if you picked him up when he returned in mid-February, he might just help you win your league. Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Miles Bridges scores 14 points with six rebounds
    Miles Bridges scored 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting (2-of-2 FT) Wednesday, to go with six rebounds, one assist and two triples in 27 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Bridges had been very quiet in his previous three outings, sandwiching an okay 10-point game between two five-point stinkers, but maybe he'll be able to get things going after tonight's efficient performance. He's hovering at late-round value on the season in 9-cat leagues with averages of 9.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.3 triples and 1.7 turnovers per contest on 47.7% shooting, but he's not necessarily a must-roster guy. Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Patrick Williams fills stat sheet on Wednesday
    Patrick Williams hit 5-of-8 shots, a 3-pointer and 2-of-2 free throws for 13 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 27 minutes of Wednesday's overtime win over the Wolves.

    Advice: After too many stretches of inconsistency for many fantasy managers to handle, Williams has gotten hot over his last three games. His averages in those are 12.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers while hitting 16-of-26 shots. He's not a must-add player, but he might be better than the guys at the end of your bench. Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Malik Monk erupts for 29 points over 28 minutes
    Malik Monk stayed hot on Wednesday, going 10-of-21 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe for 29 points in 28 minutes off the bench in a win over Phoenix.

    Advice: Monk added five triples, two rebounds, three assists and one steal without committing a single turnover, and this was his second straight game with at least 20 points and four triples. Monk is a guy who can fall off at a moment's notice, but he's been rolling over the past two, which puts him on the radar as a speculative add in deep leagues. Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Terry Rozier doesn't play well in win
    Terry Rozier didn't have a great game during Wednesday's win over the Suns, scoring 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting to go with six rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and six turnovers across 36 minutes.

    Advice: At least Rozier went 3-of-3 from the line, but this was a fairly disappointing stat line from Scary Terry. He's been in a bit of a funk over the past two games, but maybe he'll be able to snap out of it with an up-tempo game against the Warriors on Friday. Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Cody Zeller injures left hip; doesn't return
    Cody Zeller exited Wednesday's game during the fourth quarter with a left hip contusion and did not return, finishing with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks over 18 minutes.

    Advice: The Hornets did not a provide an immediate update after the game, so for now, we'll be considering Zeller questionable for Friday's matchup with Golden State. If he needs to miss time, Bismack Biyombo would likely return to the starting lineup, and he'd be worth a look if you need a low-end big. Bizzy B finished Wednesday's win with three points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in 26 minutes. Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Naz Reid scores 13 with 3 blocks in 22 minutes
    Naz Reid played 22 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, four rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: Reid's minutes have taken a hit with Karl-Anthony Towns back in action and his scoring has been a roller-coaster ride lately. But he's still somewhat productive, is a good shot blocker and might be worth a stash in case KAT is shut down at some point. KAT appears to be healthy and new coach Chris Finch wants to run the offense through him, but that still may not be enough to keep Towns motivated and getting it done for a team that has only won seven games this season, only three of which Towns has been a part of. If you've got a big roster and a free spot to stash Reid, it could pay off down the road. Yesterday, 9:36 pm
