• Alfonzo McKinnie
    F, Golden State Warriors

    Alfonzo McKinnie will be out on Friday.

    McKinnie has little fantasy relevance for most owners but could have some appeal in very deep leagues when he's on the floor. This is a non-factor for most folks and may make Damian Jones just a little more valuable.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cameron Johnson played 20 minutes on Thursday, scoring 15 points and hitting three triples.

    Johnson played more minutes than Mikal Bridges (14) in this contest as Bridges quickly picked up five fouls. That likely won't be the norm, so we can keep Johnson on the periphery. However, he has a chance to be a 3-point specialist if there's an injury on the depth chart ahead of him.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric scored 23 points (9-of-12 shooting) and grabbed six boards in a win over the Hawks on Thursday.

    Saric was very efficient in this contest and has somewhat surprisingly been a top-100 player so far. The profile is good but the game log won't be without warts. Frank Kaminsky also produced well off the bench with Aron Baynes in foul trouble, notching 19 points and six boards. Baynes is a hold and Kaminsky is still a reluctant stream.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr.
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre bounced back on Thursday with 30 points, seven rebounds and two steals to lead the Suns to a win over the Hawks.

    Oubre was a guiding force for the team after a horrendous time in the loss to the Lakers on Tuesday. There was pretty good contribution across the board in this one with three assists and a couple triples as well. He should settle in as a top-100 player for the season.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter had 14 points (5-of-15 shooting) and an impressive six swipes in Thursday's loss to the Suns.

    The steals were huge to save an inefficient scoring night. Hunter is heralded as a great defender on the wing so we hope his fantasy upside comes from a 3-and-D mold. His time isn't now so there will be a lot of growing paints here.

  • Damian Jones
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Damian Jones was efficient offensively on Thursday with 14 points and eight rebounds on 7-of-8 shooting in 19 minutes.

    Jones did turn the ball over five times and commit five fouls, which obviously played a role in his limited minutes and the expanded role for Alex Len, who took advantage of the bump. There may not be a lot to see here for either of those guys, but they could sniff some late-round streaming value.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    The revenge angle was in full effect as Alex Len put up 21 points and 10 boards in 24 minutes off the bench, but his former team got the last laugh as the Hawks fell to the Suns on Thursday.

    Apparently it took a revenge game against his old team for Len to break 20 points for the first time this season. This was his second double-digit scoring output of the year and it just has been a general disappointment in a year where he actually had quite a bit of buzz as a standard-league asset.

  • Jabari Parker
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Jabari Parker scored 24 points in 32 minutes on Thursday as the Hawks lost in Phoenix.

    Parker has been a good scorer and rebounder and has stepped up well in the absence of John Collins. He's definitely a volume play so while Collins is out he will continue to be a primary scoring option. After that, we'll see.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina only played 18 minutes in a start on Thursday, scoring five points on 1-of-4 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assist, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    He would have ended the game with only three points if he wasn't put in as a free throw shooter when the Mavs were fouling. Ntilikina dealt with some foul trouble tonight, tallying five fouls in his 18 minutes. He just can't be relied on with Coach Fizdale as he played Dennis Smith (13 points, six rebounds, eight assists and two triples) a whopping 30 minutes tonight. If you think DSJ is going to be consistent, you should think again as the Knicks rotation is a constant mess.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis had a lackluster shooting night on Thursday, hitting 7-of-17 from the floor on his way to 20 points with 11 boards, an assist, a steal, three blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Porzingis will almost certainly fail to return his top-30 ADP, but he'll definitely be better than what he's shown as of late. He's averaging 18.3 points, 2.3 3s, 7.9 rebounds and 2.4 blocks on .401 shooting and all of those numbers are great except the efficiency. The concerning thing about this is that the last thing to return for players coming back from a major injury is the efficiency. It's unlikely he finishes the season shooting below .400, but he's never been an efficient scorer from the field so don't expect a drastic improvement there.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic had a special night at MSG on Thursday, notching a 33-10-11 triple-double to go with three steals, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Doncic shot 10-for-23 which isn't too bad, considering he's been a flamethrower this season. He also went 10-for-13 at the line which is where he's made some real improvements. Last season he shot .427 from the floor and .713 at the line compared to this season's .485 and .844 splits. Couple that with the fact that he's nearly averaging a triple-double (28.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 9.1 assists) and you have someone that could end the year as a top-10 player. This guy is special.
