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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

  • Forgotten All-Star: Butler nets 27 points in win
    Fresh off an All-Star snubbing, Jimmy Butler came through with 27 points, eight rebounds, 10 assists, three triples, three steals, one block and two turnovers across 34 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Raptors.

    Advice: Butler and Bam Adebayo were All-Stars last season, but neither guy made the squad this year, and some of that probably has to do with how uneven Miami's start was this season. Luckily, All-Star appearances aren't a category in fantasy hoops, and for all intents and purposes, Jimmy Buckets has been a fantasy All-Star this season with averages of 19.5 points, 7.7 boards, 7.8 dimes and a league-leading 1.9 steals a night. Yesterday, 8:26 pm
  • Danuel House scores 14, blocks three shots in loss
    Danuel House hit 6-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 34 minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Cavs. 

    Advice: House is heating up, scoring 14 or more points in three of his last four games and while he hadn't blocked a shot in his previous two games, he now has eight of them over his last six contests. Over his last four games, House is averaging 13.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.5 steals, 1.0 blocks and 2.3 3-pointers, making him worth a look in most fantasy leagues. Yesterday, 8:24 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
  • OG Anunoby scores 14 points with two swats
    OG Anunoby hit 6-of-13 shots for 14 points, six rebounds, two assists, two triples, two blocks and one turnover across 36 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Anunoby was held to 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting his last time out, but he was a bit more efficient tonight, and this was his second straight game with multiple swats. Unfortunately, it was also Toronto's second straight loss, and they've been allowing 112.5 points per game over that two-game losing streak. Look for them to bust out of it on Friday vs. the 11-19 Rockets. Yesterday, 8:12 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
  • Doug McDermott (knee) scores 15 points in 29 mins
    Doug McDermott (right knee) scored 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting Wednesday, to go with three rebounds, three assists, two triples, one steal, one block and one turnover through 30 minutes.

    Advice: McDermott played through his knee issue last Wednesday, and then with the Pacers getting their next two games postponed, he wound up getting a week off for rest. He looked fine tonight, and the big minutes would suggest he's past the knee issue, so we'd be surprised if he gets hit with a rest day on Indiana's upcoming Friday-Saturday, back-to-back set.
