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
  • 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
    New Player Note
    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Gordon Hayward (hand) scores 20 points in win
    Gordon Hayward (hand) went 7-of-17 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line for 20 points in Wednesday's win over the Suns.

    Advice: Hayward exited Monday’s game during the fourth quarter due to the hand injury, but he didn’t miss any additional game time, and his hand didn’t appear to give him any major issues tonight although he did go 0-of-5 from distance. It's his shooting hand, so it may be messing with his shot a little bit, but it's not bad enough to keep him off the floor. He added eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one turnover while he was out there, and managers can expect to have him available for Friday's game vs. the Warriors. Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Jarred Vanderbilt hits 5-of-5, plays 34 minutes
    Jarred Vanderbilt came through with his best game of the season on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-5 shots and 6-of-7 free throws for 16 points, six rebounds, one assist and four steals in a career-high 34 minutes in an overtime loss to the Bulls. 

    Advice: The 16 points tied his career high, the four steals are his career high and he made the most of his monster minutes tonight. He's been teasing us all year but has rarely come through, and hadn't scored more than four points in his previous five games. In fact, he's scored in double figures just eight times this season, but only two of those have come in the month of February. But he also hasn't been getting minutes lately and the Wolves finally turned him loose tonight. Whether they continue to do so going forward remains to be seen, but tonight was a huge step in the right direction. If you want to take a flier on him in case 30 minutes become the norm for Vandy, go get him. Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Zion Williamson dominates his way to 32 points
    Zion Williamson helped the Pelicans pull off their second straight comeback win on Wednesday with 32 points, six rebounds, five assists and one block over 31 minutes.

    Advice: This was Williamson's first game since being named to the All-Star reserves, and he did not disappoint, with numerous highlight-reel throwdowns. As per usual, he was uber-efficient from the field (13-of-18) and less efficient at the stripe (6-of-9), but he played a huge role in helping New Orleans overcome an 11-point deficit. Brandon Ingram, who did not make the All-Star team, still had an All-Star-like performance with 27 points (9-of-18 FG, 6-of-7 FT), seven boards, eight dimes, three treys, one steal and one turnover across 37 minutes in the win. Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Dylan Windler heating up for Cavaliers
    Dylan Windler hit 4-of-4 shots (all 3-pointers) for 13 points, four rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes of Wednesday's win over the Rockets. 

    Advice: Windler's played well in his last two games, averaging 14 points, 4.5 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 4.5 3-pointers on 9-of-10 shooting. It's impossible to guess if he'll keep shooting it like this or not, but he's playing well enough to be given a look in deeper leagues right now. Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Saddiq Bey scores 13 points with three triples
    Saddiq Bey went 4-of-8 from the floor and 2-of-2 from the stripe on Wednesday for 13 points, two rebounds, one assist, three triples, one steal and one turnover in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Bey has been rolling over the past 11 games, flirting with top 60 value behind averages of 13.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 2.9 triples, 1.1 steals and just 0.8 turnovers per contest on 49% shooting from the field and 87% from the stripe. He’s going to see nothing but opportunity moving forward with Detroit committing to the rebuild, and because he’s a rookie, it’s extremely unlikely he’ll see any rest in back-to-back sets. He did tweak an ankle during the third quarter tonight, but he played through it, so he should be fine for Friday's game vs. Sacramento. Yesterday, 8:59 pm
  • Sekou Doumbouya fizzles in spot-start
    Sekou Doumbouya didn't do much in a spot-start on Wednesday, scoring three points on 1-of-5 shooting to go with one rebound, four assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Doumbouya got the start with Jerami Grant (rest) taking the night off, but he spent most of his energy chasing around Brandon Ingram on defense and he didn’t really seek out his own shot on the other end of the floor. Maybe Sekou will eventually get going at some point, but he’s done a whole lot of nothing thus far this season, so he’s safe to leave on the waiver wire in re-draft leagues. Yesterday, 8:58 pm
  • Isaac Okoro scores 10 points with two 3-pointers
    Isaac Okoro hit 4-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, two rebounds and a block in Wednesday's win over the Rockets. 

    Advice: Okoro is playing well and is a generally efficient player. He's averaging 11 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.3 blocks and 2.5 3-pointers over his last four games, and he's averaging a whopping 33.3 minutes over that stretch. He's not going to blow your mind with his nightly stats but he's getting enough minutes, steals, blocks and 3-pointers to be given a look in most leagues. And he should only get better with time. Yesterday, 8:57 pm
  • Wayne Ellington scores seven points with three 3s
    Wayne Ellington (rest) was back in the starting lineup on Wednesday and he hit 3-of-10 shots for seven points, one rebound, three assists, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Ellington sat out the previous game with it being the first of a back-to-back, and it looks like the Detroit vets will be skipping at least one game in back-to-back sets the rest of the way. He can randomly get hot from distance, but he’s far too inconsistent to warrant a roster spot in most leagues. Svi Mykhailiuk transitioned back to the second unit with Ellington back in action and finished with 12 points, four triples, three boards, two assists and three turnovers in 28 minutes. Yesterday, 8:55 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
  • Andre Iguodala scores 12 points with four triples
    Andre Iguodala drilled a season-high four triples on his way to 12 points, five rebounds, one assist, one block and one turnover across 24 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Raptors.

    Advice: Iguodala was absolutely locked in in this one, finishing 4-of-5 from the floor, but he won't be this efficient on most nights and he got some increased opportunity with Tyler Herro (hip) on the sidelines. Max Strus saw 30 minutes off the bench on Monday, but he finished today's game with a DNP-CD. Neither of these guys are worth rostering in the vast majority of leagues. Yesterday, 8:40 pm
