Player Notes

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Karl-Anthony Towns plays well in 31 minutes
    Karl-Anthony Towns hit 10-of-20 shots and two 3-pointers for 24 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in 31 minutes of Wednesday's 133-126 overtime loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: KAT is back and playing well, but his team is 7-26 on the season, they've lost six straight games and 10 of their last 11, there's controversy about the hiring of coach Chris Finch, and D'Angelo Russell is out indefinitely. KAT simply can't be too psyched about going out there and busting his butt every night with nothing to play for after all of the COVID tragedy he's dealt with over the last year. Yes, they're now running the offense through him, but it's still not crazy to think he might shut it down at some point after the All-Star break. Maybe he'll stick it out and play the rest of the season, but if he makes you nervous, now's the time to offer KAT up in some trade proposals. Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Steven Adams (ankle) double-doubles in return
    Steven Adams (ankle) posted a 14-point, 15-rebound double-double in his return from a two-game absence on Wednesday.

    Advice: This was an uncharacteristic stat line from Adams, who also brought three dimes, one steal, two swats and one turnover to the box score, but we'd like to see him do this again before getting too excited. Willy Hernangomez shifted back to the second unit with Adams back in action, and he only saw 16 minutes off the bench on his way to six points, five rebounds, three blocks and three turnovers. The blocks from Willy were nice, but that's typically not something he does, as he's only sent away a total of nine shots this season. Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Isaiah Stewart double-doubles in 18 minutes
    Isaiah Stewart double-doubled in just 18 minutes off the bench on Wednesday with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

    Advice: Stewart added two steals, one block and one turnover while he was out there, and he got his points efficiently, finishing 5-of-8 from the field and 1-of-2 from the stripe. He's shown us a few flashes this season, and this certainly was a solid game for him, but he's still not getting the minutes he needs to impact standard leagues and that'll remain the case as long as Mason Plumlee is active. Plumlee finished the game with 21 points (9-of-10 FG, 3-of-5 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and three turnovers in 32 minutes. Yesterday, 8:44 pm
  • Jarrett Allen hits 10-of-11 for 26 & 18 in win
    Jarrett Allen hit 10-of-11 shots, a 3-pointer and 5-of-8 free throws for 26 points, 18 rebounds, two assists and four blocks in 37 minutes of Wednesday's 112-96 win over the Rockets. 

    Advice: The Rockets' interior players are nonexistent right now and they're starting P.J. Tucker at center, which allowed Allen to basically do anything he wanted tonight. He's now double-doubled in six straight games with Andre Drummond out of the way and he tied his season highs in both points and boards tonight. He'll have a much tougher outing in the next one when the Cavs play at Philadelphia on Saturday so we'll have to see if he can get another double-double against Joel Embiid. Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk doesn't do much over 32 minutes
    Kelly Olynyk didn't do much through 32 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, finishing with seven points, seven rebounds, four assists and one turnover.

    Advice: Olynyk has been alternating between single-digit and double-digit scoring performances over the past four games, but when he’s not scoring and drilling 3-balls (he was 0-of-5 from distance tonight), he’s not doing much for you in fantasy hoops. He’s too inconsistent to trust in most 12-team leagues. Yesterday, 8:38 pm
  • Dean Wade starts, hits 4-of-4 shots for 11 points
    Dean Wade started again on Wednesday and hit 4-of-4 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, six rebounds and two assists in a win over the Rockets. 

    Advice: He had five points, two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's start and Taurean Prince went down again tonight after aggravating his ankle injury. With Prince and the rest of the Cavs power forwards all hurting, Wade could continue to start for the near future. He's far from a must-have player in standard leagues but might be worth a DFS flier if you're looking for a cheap power forward. Yesterday, 8:29 pm

  • Bam Adebayo double-doubles in win over Raptors
    Bam Adebayo double-doubled in Wednesday's win over the Raptors with 19 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: “It felt like the bubble again where we got a chance to be cohesive,” Adebayo said of how the team bonded during their recent three-game road trip. “When we’re at home, we can’t really hang out with each other. But, being in the bubble, being able to be safe in the hotel, we got better. It feels like we’re brothers again.” The Heat extended their win streak to four tonight, and it'll be interesting to see if they can push that number to five on Friday with a tough matchup vs. Utah. Yesterday, 8:22 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge hits 3-of-10 shots for 11 points
    LaMarcus Aldridge (hip) finally returned to action on Wednesday, hitting 3-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 26 minutes off the bench. 

    Advice: He hadn't played since Feb. 1 due to a hip injury and several postponed games for the Spurs, and while he wasn't great tonight, it was nice to see him back in action. We'll have to see if Aldridge wins the starting gig back from Jakob Poeltl going forward, but if you need a big man and Aldridge was dropped in your league, he's probably worth a flier until we see where this goes. Yesterday, 8:11 pm
  • Pascal Siakam held to five points in loss to Miami
    Pascal Siakam was held to just five points on 1-of-6 shooting from the field and 2-of-2 from the stripe in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Spicy P just couldn't get anything going in this one, rounding out his stat line with a measly two rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer and three turnovers across 24 minutes. This will probably stand out as his worst game of the season when all is said and done, but we'd anticipate him to bounce-back on Friday with a much more favorable matchup vs. Houston. Yesterday, 8:08 pm
  • Al Horford comes back with 16/7/7 line in big win
    Al Horford returned from Monday's day of rest and hit 7-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in a 102-99 win over the Spurs. 

    Advice: His last assist was a beauty as he hit a wide-open Lu Dort in the corner for an uncontested 3-pointer at the buzzer to give OKC the three-point win. Dort fell over after the shot and was then mobbed by his teammates in celebration, which was cool to see. Horford will get occasional days off, but has otherwise been a very good fantasy big man for most of the season. Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Myles Turner scores 14 points with two swats
    Myles Turner scored 14 points on 4-of-13 shooting Wednesday, to go with eight rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, two blocks and one turnover across 32 minutes in a loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Turner did a nice job of getting to the line tonight, finishing 5-of-5 at the stripe, but his shooting funk continued — and he's now been connecting on just 30% of his shot attempts over the past three games. He's simply in a rut, but he should snap out of it soon enough, and he's still been averaging an elite 4.0 swats per game over the cold-shooting stretch. Yesterday, 7:50 pm
  • Eric Paschall scores 13 points over 18 minutes
    Eric Paschall came off the bench for 13 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and four turnovers across 18 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Paschall got some extra minutes with James Wiseman fouling out early, and he made the most of his opportunity with some efficient shot-making, going 5-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe. However, with both Wiseman and Kevon Looney back, Paschall won't see enough regular rotation minutes to warrant a roster spot in most leagues. Yesterday, 7:42 pm
  • Draymond Green flirts with triple-double in win
    Draymond Green stuffed the stat sheet during Wednesday's win over the Pacers, tallying 12 points, 11 assists, nine rebounds, three steals, one block and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: This was Green's fourth double-double of the season, and just his fourth game reaching double figures in the scoring department. He got his point efficiently, finishing 4-of-5 from the floor and he was also a perfect 4-of-4 from the stripe, with two of those makes coming in the closing seconds of the game to seal the deal for Golden State. His apprentice, James Wiseman, fouled out in just 18 minutes and finished with 11 points, five rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in the win. Yesterday, 7:28 pm
  • John Collins double-doubles in return vs. Celtics
    John Collins hit 6-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, 11 rebounds and a block in 25 minutes of Wednesday's 127-112 blowout win over the Celtics. 

    Advice: The game wasn't nearly as close as the final score indicates and the Hawks controlled this one from the opening tip. Collins left Tuesday's game with a possible concussion, so the fact he played at all tonight feels like a bonus. With Trae Young and Danilo Gallinari on fire and basically beating the Celtics by themselves tonight, the rest of the Hawks simply turned into role players. Yesterday, 7:07 pm
