• Aaron Gordon
    F, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon went 2-of-11 from the field on Sunday, finishing with seven points, seven rebounds and six assists in 30 minutes.

    Gordon couldn't get it going today and the Raptors were happy to let him fire up jumpers. He did well to pick up some other stats today, though it's obviously not what fantasy owners are hoping for. More of the same from the inconsistent Gordon, who has yet to really harness his immense upside. Evan Fournier had a quiet but effective game with 11 points, a block and two threes.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard was the main contributor toward the Blazers' 115-87 blowout win over the Knicks on Tuesday as he hit eight threes on his way to a game-high 31 points (9-of-15 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs) in 29 minutes.

    Lillard added two rebounds and six assists as well. His production had dipped for a few weeks, but Lillard appears to be back on track. Count on him to stay in the top-10 in the rankings for the season.

  • Anfernee Simons
    SG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Anfernee Simons made the most of some extra garbage time on Tuesday, knocking down four treys as part of a 16-point performance that also included five rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes.

    Simons hit 5-of-9 shots in this one and he's now shooting 42.5 percent from the field. And though he's getting the experience he needs for the future, Simons' role just isn't big enough to support a useful fantasy starter in standard leagues.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside needed just 26 minutes to post a 17-point, 15-rebound double-double with five blocks and two dimes against the Knicks on Tuesday.

    Whiteside has had quite a resurgence this season, and mainly at the free throw line. Last season, he shot 44.9 percent from the line, and this year he's up to a career-high 76.3 percent. Whiteside may lose playing time when and if Jusuf Nurkic (left leg fracture) and Zach Collins (left shoulder dislocation) return, but he should stick in the top-30 for the majority of the season, if not the second-round where he's sitting right now.

  • Bobby Portis
    PF, New York Knicks

    Bobby Portis double-doubled with 11 points (4-of-9 FGs) and 10 rebounds in 20 minutes in a 87-115 blowout loss to the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Portis also added a steal and a block to his total. With the coaching change and possible trades, there aren't many certainties with the Knicks right now. Portis has had hot stretches when he's gotten bigger opportunities on bad teams in the past, and there's a chance it could happen again later this season. Also off the bench was Mitchell Robinson with 14 points (5-of-8 FGs), five rebounds and a block in 27 minutes.

  • Allonzo Trier
    PG, New York Knicks

    Allonzo Trier scored 13 points (4-for-9 FGs) in 14 minutes off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Blazers, adding two assists and two 3-pointers.

    Trier minutes were his highest in a month, as his playing time has been sporadic. The Knicks need to shake things up and develop their young players, so maybe Trier can get back in the regular rotation later in the season. For now, leave him on the wire.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    RJ Barrett had yet another dreadful game on Tuesday as he made just 1-of-9 field goals in 19 minutes, resulting in just five points and four rebounds as the Knicks were blown out by the Blazers.

    The train wreck rolls on for Barrett and the Knicks. In case you're still holding him in standard leagues, you can cut bait now. Barrett should have a bright future, but it's not likely to be here soon with the terrible efficiency he's shown. Frank Ntilikina didn't fare much better, shooting 1-for-5 for two points, an assist and a steal in 17 minutes. Similarly, Kevin Knox had two points (1-of-7 FGs), three rebounds, three assists and a block in 20 minutes.

  • Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid scored a team-high 22 points (8-of-18 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs) and added 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in 31 minutes in a win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Embiid's value continues to hover in the late second-round, which is slightly concerning. This may be the new reality now that Al Horford has joined the starting lineup. If you're in a head-to-head league and already concerned about Embiid missing fantasy playoff games, this may be a good time to shop him, as many may not realize Embiid has had a small drop in minutes and just about everything else this season.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle came off the bench for 13 points (5-of-8 FGs), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples in a win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Thybulle ended up with some extra run because Josh Richardson didn't get his full complement of minutes in this one. Although Thybulle didn't get his patented defensive stats, it's great to see him getting more comfortable on offense. He will still likely have a hard time putting up consistent standard-league value on such a talented team.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) returned from a six-game absence on Tuesday and the rust showed as he shot just 1-for-8 (1-for-3 from deep), good for three points, one rebound and one steal in 19 minutes.

    While Richardson is a must-start fantasy option, he's certainly not the mid-round player he was the last two seasons in Miami. If you're able to bench him, you may want to do so until he shows you he's healthy enough to put up top-100 production again.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton scored a game-high 26 points on 10-of-19 shooting in a 92-97 road loss to the Sixers on Tuesday, but he wasn't done, as he added seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals, three blocks and two treys in 40 minutes.

    Barton came out hot in this game. With this performance, he's now a top-75/60 (8-cat/9-cat) per-game player for the season, which is about where he was two seasons ago when he broke out. He often flies under the radar, so it's worth seeing the team that rosters him in your league values him appropriately.
