C.J. McCollum (left ankle sprain) had a successful return against the Pacers on Sunday, putting up 28 points (11-of-21 FG), six 3-pointers and five assists.
McCollum jumped right back into the swing of things after missing the past three games and played nearly 36 minutes in this one. It's terrific to see no restrictions and that he was happy initiating the offense. Damian Lillard is on fire, but he more than happy to have McCollum chipping in, and you can count on his scoring abilities delivering mid-round value.
February 25, 2020, 11:01 pmKhris MiddletonSF, Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton paced the Bucks with a team-high 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes in a 108-97 road win over the Raptors on Tuesday.
While not a spectacular game, Middleton's floor has been raised. He's been a top-10 player for the month, and games like this won't knock him out. The percentages are spectacular for a player that attempts so many triples.
February 25, 2020, 10:58 pmShai Gilgeous-AlexanderSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a great outing in Tuesday's tight 124-122 win over the Bulls, recording 21 points (5-of-11 FGs, 9-of-12 FTs), 11 rebounds, two treys, three dimes, one steal and two blocks.
SGA is holding steady, recording back to back games with at least 21 points and 11 rebounds. The dynamic line tonight just moves his needle upward. He's been a top-90 player over the last week but will be able to flirt with top-75 or better value especially with more lines like this in the future.
February 25, 2020, 10:45 pmThaddeus YoungPF, Chicago Bulls
Thaddeus Young was quiet in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder, recording just eight points (3-of-8 shooting), three rebounds, four assists, two 3s and one steal.
Young is coming off a string of fantastic games. This low-end line is just a bit of correction and is not injury-related, so there's no cause for concern here.
February 25, 2020, 10:41 pmZach LaVinePG, Chicago Bulls
Zach LaVine recorded his sixth 40-point game of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder with 41 points on 19-of-35 shooting, three treys, five rebounds, four dimes and one steal in 39 minutes.
LaVine has been one of the league's more prolific scorers this season and even the recent breakout performances of Coby White have not done anything to slow him down. On a sad note, LaVine did miss all three shot attempts from the line and committed five turnovers, but it's something owners will surely be able to look past given his high-volume scoring tonight.
February 25, 2020, 10:40 pmGiannis AntetokounmpoPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo's shot attempt total was on the lower side for the second straight night, but he still managed to impress with 19 points (5-of-14 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), 19 rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes as the Bucks beat the Raptors on Tuesday.
Giannis deferred to his teammates for much of the game before taking a handful of shots in the fourth quarter. No matter, as he did just about everything a fantasy team could need anyway, including a nice performance from the free throw line. Aside from his usual struggles there, the only thing that might derail him down the stretch is the Bucks resting him here and there during the fantasy playoffs.

February 25, 2020, 10:34 pmCoby WhitePG, Chicago Bulls
Coby White kept the ball rolling on Tuesday, reaching a new career-high with 35 points on 13-of-21 shooting, including six treys, seven rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes off the bench.
White is on a crazy heater right now, scoring 33 or more points in three straight games now, while hitting five treys or more. This is the breakout owners have been waiting for. He's been up and down all season, but lately White's reached new heights. This is top-end value for White as he explores his ceiling, but it's not likely sustainable for the remainder of 2019-20, so enjoy the ride while it lasts.
February 25, 2020, 10:23 pmBrook LopezC, Milwaukee Bucks
Brook Lopez (sore back) had five rejections in his return to the Bucks' lineup on Tuesday, adding 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting, three boards, two swipes and two triples in 27 minutes in a win over the Raptors.
Lopez missed Monday's game due to a sore back, but he looked like his normal self in this game. His threes dropped this season, but Lopez is averaging a career-best 2.5 blocks per game. That's enough for him to keep up his middle-round value that he was drafted for.
February 25, 2020, 9:44 pmCaleb MartinSG-SF, Charlotte Hornets
Martin twins, Caleb and Cody, saw 26 and 30 minutes respectively in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Pacers, combining for 20 points.
Caleb shot 4-of-10 from the field, hit three triples adding three rebounds, two assists and one block with 11 points. Cody had nine points (3-of-12 shooting), six rebounds, three assists and two steals. This game's result was a foregone conclusion early on, so garbage time played a factor in the twins' extra usage. That said, the Hornets have been so bad lately, that blowout losses could be more common down the road.
February 25, 2020, 9:36 pmMiles BridgesSF, Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges was the only Hornet who was able to get it going on Tuesday, recording a team-high 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting with six rebounds, one assist, two 3s and one steal (zero turnovers) in 26 minutes.
Lately, Bridges has been the only Hornet that's been bankable, and we use that word generously, in recent games. He's been playing well enough to be worth rostering in standard leagues, so ride him while he's hot.
