April 17, 2019, 10:05 pmAl HorfordF/C, Boston Celtics
Al Horford (illness) played 37 minutes in Game 2, finishing with only four points, but still collected 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks.
Despite looking out of sorts, Horford was able to stay out on the floor for the vast majority of Game 2, and continued to provide the intangibles that he has become renown for. Expect him to be good to go for Game 3.
February 20, 2020, 11:36 pmCody ZellerC, Charlotte Hornets
Cody Zeller posted an efficient 16 points and eight boards in 25 minutes on Thursday.
Zeller was perfect from the floor in this contest but this is close to the best case scenario for him. Unfortunately, he hasn't been the reliable top-100 per-game producer this season. He should be a good source for shooting percentage, rebounds and low turnover numbers.
February 20, 2020, 11:34 pmPJ WashingtonPF, Charlotte Hornets
P.J. Washington produced across the board on Thursday, scoring 17 points to go with five boards, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot as the Hornets downed the Bulls 103-93.
Washington was productive here but we do have to be aware that he isn't locked into anything at this point. Cody Martin has been solid enough to get some starts and soak up some minutes, so really he just mutes some of Washington's value. Martin had four points and six boards in 25 minutes.
February 20, 2020, 11:30 pmTerry RozierPG, Charlotte Hornets
Terry Rozier (left knee soreness) wasn't limited on Thursday night, playing 32 minutes and scoring 14 points in a win over the Bulls.
Rozier returned to action after missing a game with knee soreness and was reasonably productive. He didn't add a variety of stats but he also didn't make a lot of mistakes. It was a solid line that should get better in future games.
February 20, 2020, 11:28 pmDevonte' GrahamPG, Charlotte Hornets
Devonte' Graham went 0-for-7 from the floor and was held scoreless in 33 minutes in Thursday's win over the Bulls.
Graham had seven assists but also turned it over four times in an ugly line for the breakout guard. He won't struggle like this, but the shooting percentage is ugly more often than we want from Graham.
February 20, 2020, 11:25 pmMiles BridgesSF, Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges scored 22 points on 9-of-23 shooting on Thursday night, to go along with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Bridges had a good game in this one, but we would have loved to see some more efficiency in his shooting line. He hasn't quite been the player we hoped for coming into the year, but has been better in the last few weeks, so he could use this run to be a top-100 player the rest of the way.
February 20, 2020, 11:22 pmMalik MonkSG, Charlotte Hornets
Malik Monk came out of the break strong with another 25-point outing to add onto six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes.
Monk was a catalyst in another Hornets' road victory. Again, he is worth holding onto while he's scoring like this and the shot is falling. When the shot struggles, he doesn't offer much else and should be jettisoned back to waiver wires in standard leagues.
February 20, 2020, 11:19 pmTomas SatoranskyPG, Chicago Bulls
Tomas Satoransky was solid in his 33 minutes on Thursday as the Bulls fell for the seventh time in a row, scoring 12 points to go with six rebounds and eight assists.
Sato had a nice line, but he lacks the exciting explosiveness to make him more than a late middle-round value in fantasy. He should continue to produce top-100 value as long as Kris Dunn is on the shelf, but he's not going to win anyone a league.
February 20, 2020, 11:16 pmRyan ArcidiaconoPG, Chicago Bulls
Ryan Arcidiacono didn't take advantage of a start on Thursday night, scoring just three points and pulling down three boards in 28 minutes.
There's really nothing to see here for Arcidiacono, who got a spot start perhaps to keep Coby White from completely shooting the Bulls out of the game. White tried his best, shooting 3-of-11 for his 12 points in 30 minutes. White has more upside than Arcidiacono or Shaquille Harrison (13 points in 18 minutes), but it's best to leave all of these guys on the waiver wire.
February 20, 2020, 11:06 pmZach LaVinePG, Chicago Bulls
Zach LaVine struggled shooting the rock on Thursday, taking 22 field goal attempts to get to his 19 points, but he made up for that by adding seven rebounds, seven assists and three steals in a game-high 39 minutes.
LaVine is an explosive scorer who has added more facets to his game this season. He's an underrated source of steals at this point and should be valued as a player with top-25 upside going forward.
February 20, 2020, 11:02 pmThaddeus YoungPF, Chicago Bulls
Thaddeus Young scored a season-high 22 points on Thursday night to go with 11 rebounds, four steals and two triples in 36 minutes.
Young has taken advantage of high volume in the absence of a lot of critical pieces in the Bulls' rotation to be a top-120 player over the last 25 games. He has been a per-game darling in seasons past because he racked up a lot of steals and never turned the ball over. His production has been muted in Chicago on account of volume. He probably doesn't return to that level again but he should be a steady contributor until the Bulls have more bodies healthy.
