Player Notes

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:17 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. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 10:04 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. NBCSportsEDGE.com 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. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Lonzo Ball scores 12 points with full line in win
    Lonzo Ball contributed 12 points, six rebounds, eight assists, two triples, three steals and two turnovers across 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

    Advice: Ball did appear to tweak something in his right hand early in the game, and while he played through it, that was something that was giving him some trouble on Sunday as well, so it's worth monitoring. Eric Bledsoe, who was held to just eight points his last time out, finished Wednesday's win with 11 points (5-of-11 FG, 1-of-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover in 33 minutes. If the hand issue forces Ball to miss a game, Bledsoe and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will benefit. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Darius Garland double-doubles with 11 & 10, 8 TOs
    Darius Garland hit just 4-of-14 shots and 3-of-10 3-pointers for 11 points, four rebounds, 10 assists and eight turnovers in Wednesday's 112-96 win over the Rockets. 

    Advice: He logged his third double-double of the season and was just two turnovers shy of making it a dubious triple-double. Despite the inefficiency and poor shooting, Garland is still averaging 16.3 points, 8.7 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last three games. He's putting up solid counting stats but his poor shooting from the field will leave a mark on your fantasy team's percentages. After losing 10 straight the Cavs have now won two in a row, beating the Hawks in a gift and dominating the Rockets in the paint.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:49 pm
  • Saben Lee posts solid low-end line over 22 minutes
    Saben Lee came off the bench for 13 points, two rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and one block across 22 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lee finished 5-of-8 from the field and 2-of-2 from the stripe, and as an added bonus for those in 9-cat leagues, he didn't commit a single turnover. Lee had been closing over Dennis Smith Jr. the past two games, but it was DSJ's turn to close tonight and he finished with 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with three rebounds, seven assists, one 3-pointer, three steals and zero turnovers. These two will be handling the point guard duties in Detroit until Delon Wright (groin) and Killian Hayes (hip) get back, and both are worth rostering, although Lee is a better standard league target while DSJ is more of a deep league guy.

  • Goran Dragic (ankle) nets 15 points in return
    Goran Dragic (left ankle) went 4-of-13 from the field and 5-of-6 from the stripe for 15 points over 21 minutes in his return to action on Wednesday.

    Advice: This was Dragic’s first game in a little over two weeks, so he was working with a minutes limit, and that should remain the case for at least the next few games. He added two triples, two rebounds, three assists and three turnovers while he was out there, so it was still a fairly solid performance in his first game back. Kendrick Nunn still saw 36 minutes as a starter with Dragic back in the mix, and he finished with seven points (2-of-9 FG, 2-of-2 FT), four boards, seven dimes, one 3-pointer, one block and two turnovers. However, once Tyler Herro (hip) is brought back into the equation, Nunn's value figures to plummet. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:31 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.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:29 pm

  • Patty Mills scores 15 with three triples Wednesday
    Patty Mills hit 6-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's tough loss to the Thunder. 

    Advice: DeMar DeRozan was out for personal reasons and the Spurs hadn't played a game since Feb. 14 due to postponements. Mills has scored in double digits in four straight games and the Spurs funky schedule should return to normal soon. Mills is worth a look right now, but once DeRozan and Derrick White are back, he's probably going to be a very inconsistent player.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:15 pm
  • Dejounte Murray goes for 27/9/6 in Spurs return
    Dejounte Murray had 27 points, nine rebounds and six assists as the Spurs finally returned to action on Wednesday after having their previous four games postponed. 

    Advice: The Spurs lost a heartbreaker tonight, as Lu Dort hit a 3-point buzzer-beater to give OKC the 102-99 win over San Antonio. The Spurs were playing without DeMar DeRozan and some other key pieces but hung in there after not playing a game since Feb. 14. Murray hit 12-of-20 shots and also had two steals, so he should be good to go going forward.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:07 pm
  • Kyle Lowry (thumb) nets 24 points with full line
    Kyle Lowry (thumb) netted 24 points in his return to action on Wednesday, adding seven boards, eight dimes, four triples, two steals and three turnovers across 35 minutes.

    Advice: Lowry missed the past four games with a thumb and ankle issue, but he was back in his usual role tonight and opened the game by hitting his first four shots — finishing 9-of-13 from the field and 2-of-4 from the stripe. With Lowry back in action, DeAndre’ Bembry returned to the second unit where he finished with one assist and one turnover in five minutes off the bench. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:59 pm
  • Theo Maledon hits 1-of-5 shots, but steals 4
    Theo Maledon hit just 1-of-5 shots (a 3-pointer) for three points, three rebounds and three assists on Wednesday, but also had four more steals in 35 minutes. 

    Advice: Rostering Maledon can be a frustrating endeavor at times and he's scored in single digits in five of his last nine games. But he plays more than 30 minutes almost every night and has the ability to steal the ball at will and also hits a lot of 3-pointers. It might be tempting to drop him but keep in mind that Hamidou Diallo left tonight's game with a groin injury which could give Maledon an even bigger role going forward. He's not a great points league guy though, so if you want to move on him from him in one of those leagues it might make sense.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
  • Malcolm Brogdon scores 24 points in loss to GSW
    Malcolm Brogdon went 10-of-20 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe for 24 points over 35 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Brogdon added three rebounds, three assists and a steal while he was out there, but he also committed four turnovers and went 0-of-4 from distance. He may have been a bit rusty coming off a week-long layoff due to postponements, but it was still a pretty solid outing overall. T.J. McConnell came off the bench for nine points, five rebounds, six assists, four steals, one block and four turnovers across 27 minutes in the four-point loss. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scores 42 in 'snubfest 21'
    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander took his All-Star snub personally and into his own hands on Wednesday when he torched the Spurs for a career-high 42 points, eight rebounds, four assists, a block and six 3-pointers in a thrilling 102-99 win. 

    Advice: SGA was feeling it and hit 13-of-20 shots and 10-of-11 free throws on his way to the best game of his career and his six triples were a career high. However, it was teammate Lu Dort who stole the spotlight by hitting a 3-pointer as the clock expired to give the Thunder the win. There was a lot of hype over SGA coming into the season and he's living up to it thus far.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:28 pm
  • Trae Young scores 33 with five triples in easy win
    Trae Young hit 13-of-23 shots and five 3-pointers for 33 points, four rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Wednesday's easy 127-112 win over the Celtics. 

    Advice: The Hawks blew this one open early and Trae and Danilo Gallinari put on a show in this one, combining to score 71 points in the Hawks' most dominant win of the season. Trae was efficient and fun tonight and might have had his All-Star snub on his mind.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:15 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 14 in loss to Hawks
    Jeff Teague got the start for Kemba Walker (rest) on Wednesday and hit 4-of-9 shots for 14 points, five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 29 minutes of a blowout loss to the Hawks. 

    Advice: Teague was actually one of the better Celtics in a game they'd like to forget and his 29 minutes were a season high and his 14 points were the most he's scored since he had 17 points back on Jan. 15. Payton Pritchard is generally a safer play than Teague, but the Celtics gave him some nice run against his former team tonight.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 7:01 pm
  • Jaylen Adams out on Thursday for COVID protocols
    Jaylen Adams won't play on Thursday due to COVID protocols.

    Advice: He's on a two-way deal with the Bucks and you might not even notice he's gone tomorrow night.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 5:40 pm
