Player Notes

  • Aaron Gordon chucks up six donut in win
    Aaron Gordon missed all six of his shot attempts on Wednesday, finishing with just five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers across 22 minutes in a win over the Knicks.

    Advice: AG has not stepped up like we expected him to in wake of all the injuries in Denver, and tonight's scoreless performance was coming off the heels of three-straight, single-digit stinkers. The Nuggets only have six games remaining on their schedule, and we doubt Gordon will suddenly turn things around over this final stretch. Don't hesitate to send him to the wire if you're currently scrapping through the Fantasy Finals. Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Alec Burks (knee) chucks up seven donuts in loss
    Alec Burks (knee) was scoreless in 16 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing with just two rebounds, two assists and one block while missing all seven of his shots.

    Advice: Burks is still working on finding his rhythm after a lengthy absence, but while he's playing like this, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Terence Davis quietly making noise for Sacto
    Terence Davis played 20 minutes and hit 4-of-12 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for 10 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in Wednesday's 104-93 win over the Pacers. 

    Advice: TD is getting some run with several Kings banged up and in street clothes and he's averaging 12.8 points, 4.5 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.3 3-pointers over his last four games. Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Anthony Edwards erupts for 42 points with eight 3s
    Anthony Edwards erupted for a career-high-tying 42 points on 17-of-22 shooting Wednesday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, eight triples, one steal, one block and just three turnovers across 38 minutes in a loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Not only did Edwards become the first Minnesota rookie in franchise history to record a 30/5/5 line tonight, but he also tied Kevin Love and Stephen Marbury for the single-game, rookie record for 3-pointers in a game. Karl-Anthony Towns also had a solid night with 22 points (7-of-15 FG, 5-of-5 FT), four rebounds, five assists, three triples, one steal and four turnovers in just 24 minutes, but the end result was yet another loss for Minnesota, dropping them to 20-46 on the year. Yesterday, 8:56 pm
  • Brandon Clarke double-doubles in 23 minutes
    Brandon Clarke posted a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double in 23 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Clarke finished 5-of-11 from the floor and 2-of-2 at the stripe, and he added one assist, one block and one turnover while he was out there. He had fallen out of the rotation over the past two games with Jaren Jackson Jr. back in the mix, but with JJJ receiving a rest day today, he was able to get back out there and had an okay stat line. There's a decent chance he'll return to collecting DNP-CDs on Thursday, though. Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Pat Connaughton nets 16 points with four treys
    Pat Connaughton saw 32 minutes off the bench on Wednesday with Khris Middleton (rest) taking the night off and hit 6-of-10 shots for 16 points, six rebounds, three assists, four triples, one block and one turnover in a win vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Connaughton can do this from time to time when one of the guys in Milwaukee's backcourt gets hit with a rest day, but he's tough to trust when the team is at full strength. Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Chandler Hutchison leaves game with knee injury
    Chandler Hutchison exited Wednesday's game with a left knee contusion and did not return.

    Advice: He finished with one rebound and nothing else in his three minutes off the bench, but even if he needs to miss time, it won't matter much in fantasy hoops, as he's not a consistent part of the rotation in Washington. Yesterday, 8:13 pm
  • Another 40-piece & Another L for Bradley Beal
    Bradley Beal recorded his seventh game of the season with at least 40 points on Wednesday, going 14-of-24 from the floor and 11-of-14 at the stripe for 42 points in a one-point loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: Those misses at the line must hurt extra for Beal tonight considering the Wizards only lost by one, and while he's now passed up Gilbert Arenas for the most 40-point games in franchise history with 29, his teams have gone 2-15 in those games over the past two seasons. Beal added four rebounds, three assists, three triples, one steal and two turnovers in his 39 minutes of floor time, but with the loss, they're now only 3.0 games ahead of the Raptors for the No. 10 spot out East. Yesterday, 8:08 pm
  • Anthony Lamb nets 22 points with four triples
    Anthony Lamb came off the bench for 22 points, five rebounds, two assists, four triples, one steal and two turnovers across 36 minutes in Wednesday's blowout loss to the 76ers.

    Advice: This game was never close, and with Kevin Porter Jr. exiting the game with an ankle sprain, that left Houston to finish with just six players available. Lamb has not been a consistent part of the rotation this season, but he does tend to produce when given the minutes, so he might be able to make some noise during #SillySZN. Go ahead and throw him on your watch list, as the Rockets could again be playing incredibly undermanned on Friday in Milwaukee. Yesterday, 7:50 pm
  • KJ Martin double-doubles with six dimes in loss
    KJ Martin had a solid showing over 44 minutes on Wednesday, scoring 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting to go with 10 rebounds, six assists, two triples, two swats and two turnovers in a blowout loss to the 76ers.

    Advice: Martin got the start tonight with both Christian Wood (ankle, quad) and Jae'Sean Tate (COVID-protocols) unavailable, and he could again be forced to log heavy minutes on Friday with neither Wood nor Tate expected back for that one. However, after the game, Martin did not immediately go into the locker room, but rather sat on the bench for a few minutes, and then limped his way back to the tunnel — so he might not be 100% either. Yesterday, 7:47 pm
  • Delon Wright posts monster line in win at Pacers
    Delon Wright hit 8-of-14 shots, three 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for 23 points, seven rebounds, six assists, a career-high six steals and a block in 40 minutes of Wednesday's 104-93 win at Indiana. 

    Advice: Wright added 13 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, four steals, four blocks and a 3-pointer on Tuesday night and the Kings have now won four straight games to pull within 3.0 games of the Spurs for a play-in spot in the West. They're probably not going to make it, but if you were savvy and picked up Wright when Tyrese Haliburton went down, he just might go and win you a championship, even if he doesn't do anything else this week. And he's still got the Spurs on Friday and the Thunder on Sunday this week. Yesterday, 7:37 pm

  • Bogdan Bogdanovic's triple trail of terror lives
    Bogdan Bogdanovic hit 6-of-11 shots and four more 3-pointers for 16 points, one rebound, six assists, two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes of Wednesday's blowout 135-103 win over the Suns. 

    Advice: Bogi has now hit at least three 3-pointers in seven straight games and in 11 of his last 12 as the Hawks waxed a very tired and road-weary Suns team in the fourth quarter tonight. The No. 5 Hawks opened the fourth quarter on a 16-0 run to blow a close game wide open and now have a 1.5 game cushion over the No. 6 Celtics, and sit 1.0 games behind the No. 4 Knicks. Trae Young and Clint Capela double-doubled, Danilo Gallinari scored 16 off the bench and rookie Onyeka Okongwu came through with a career-high 14 points, seven boards, three steals and a block in 18 minutes. The Hawks have won seven straight at home and are 13-2 in State Farm Arena under coach Nate McMillan. Yesterday, 7:22 pm
  • Isaac Okoro struggles in second of back-to-back
    Isaac Okoro hit just 2-of-9 shots, a 3-pointer and 2-of-5 free throws for seven points, two rebounds, three assists and a steal in 31 minutes of Wednesday's ugly loss to the Blazers. 

    Advice: He scored a career-high 32 last night and had his streak of six straight double-digit scoring games broken, but it's hard to be mad at him. He needed an IV after Tuesday's overtime game and played 47 minutes, so he was clearly gassed for this one. He'll recoup on Thursday and hopefully be back to form on Friday against the Mavericks. Yesterday, 6:50 pm
  • Kevin Porter Jr. (left ankle) won't return Weds
    Kevin Porter Jr. rolled his left ankle on Wednesday and will not return.

    Advice: KPJ will end his evening with 16 points, one rebound, five assists, two triples and two turnovers across 23 minutes, and with Houston's next two games coming as a Friday-Saturday, back-to-back, there's a reasonable chance he'll be watching from the sidelines on Friday. D.J. Augustin (ankle) was cleared for tonight's game, but it looks like he'll finish with a DNP-CD, so the Rockets may only have six players in their rotation on Friday. Armoni Brooks looks like the last man standing in Houston's backcourt. Yesterday, 6:40 pm
  • Evan Fournier keeps it going with 18 points
    Evan Fournier had another solid outing on Wednesday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with five rebounds, four assists, two triples and two steals over 29 minutes.

    Advice: That's two solid games in a row for Fournier, so it looks like he's finally found his rhythm again and he could be worth a look for this final stretch run of the fantasy season. Jayson Tatum did Jayson Tatum things tonight, finishing with 27 points (10-of-22 FG, 3-of-3 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, four triples, two steals, two swats and zero turnovers in 31 minutes. Yesterday, 6:27 pm
  • Grayson Allen (abdomen) won't return Wednesday
    Grayson Allen (abdominal strain) will not return to Wednesday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Allen only lasted six minutes tonight, finishing with two points and one turnover. The Grizzlies play again tomorrow, and for now, we'll be considering Allen questionable for that one. If he needs to miss time, there will be more minutes available for Desmond Bane and De'Anthony Melton. Yesterday, 5:30 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. starting for Norm Powell (knee)
    Derrick Jones Jr. will join the starting unit for Portland on Wednesday with Norman Powell sidelined with a knee injury. 

    Advice: DJJ played just five minutes in his previous game and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson played just six minutes, as Carmelo Anthony saw 22 minutes and scored 14 points with three 3-pointers against the Hawks on Monday. It's anyone's guess what happens tonight, but Melo seems like the most trustworthy of the trio. Yesterday, 4:22 pm
  • Norman Powell out, Damian Lillard in on Wednesday
    Norman Powell won't play on on Wednesday due to his lingering knee injury. 

    Advice: Damian Lillard will be a go despite his foot injury as the Blazers look to get a big win at Cleveland. The Cavs should be tired after pushing the Suns to overtime last night, so look for Lillard to have a big night. Look for Carmelo Anthony to step up on Powell's absence as Derrick Jones Jr. looks like he's fallen out of the rotation. Yesterday, 4:04 pm
  • Rui Hachimura expected to miss at least 2 games
    Rui Hachimura won't play on Wednesday due to health and safety protocols and isn't expected to play on Thursday, either. 

    Advice: A gentleman named Anthony Gill is starting for the Wizards tonight in his place and there's a decent chance he'll do so tomorrow, as well. Anything is possible for Gill, while managers of Hachimura either need to drop him or bench him for now. Yesterday, 3:58 pm
  • Anthony Gill starting Wednesday sans Hachimura
    Anthony Gill will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks, with Rui Hachimura (illness) unavailable and may also start on Thursday. 

    Advice: Joining him in the starting five tonight will be Russell Westbrook, Bradley Beal, Raul Neto and Alex Len. In his previous two starts this season, Gill has only managed to muster up 3.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and not much else on 37.5% shooting, so we wouldn't be targeting him tonight. Hachimura won't play on Thursday, either, meaning Gill is likely to start in that one as well. Yesterday, 3:54 pm
