January 26, 2020, 10:19 pmDevin BookerSG, Phoenix Suns
Facing the Grizzlies on Sunday, Devin Booker continued his scorching hot play in defeat, going for 36 points (11-of-24 FG, 9-of-10 FT), five 3-pointers, five assists and one block.
The broader line was a bit thin, but it is tough to complain about Booker's ability to wrack up infinite amounts of points on strong shooting. The sky is the limit assuming the Suns can hang around the playoff race, although it would be quite the feat to see Booker shoot over 50 percent from the field for an entire season. On the other hand, Ricky Rubio struggled in this game, with five points (1-of-10 FG), five rebounds, three assists and three steals. At least Rubio still delivered those steals and a 3-pointer to save this performance from being a total disaster.

Donta Hall made his NBA debut on Tuesday and quietly put up four points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench.
This was a good eye test for Hall, who is currently on a 10-day deal. He can be left on the wire with confidence.
February 25, 2020, 11:36 pmPascal SiakamPF, Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam splashed five 3-pointers on his way to 22 points (6-of-14 FGs) on Tuesday in a home loss to the Bucks while adding six rebounds, three assists and a block in 38 minutes.
It's the third time in five games that Siakam has drained at least five 3-pointers. Siakam just continues to improve, tossing in more threes and even a few more blocks recently. He probably won't make it to Giannis Antetokounmpo's level in reality, but with the discrepancy in free throw percentage and threes, he's nearly caught him in fantasy production.
February 25, 2020, 11:35 pmJohn HensonPF, Detroit Pistons
John Henson started for the Pistons on Tuesday but was not able to put up a noteworthy performance with just four points (2-of-4 shooting), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 22 minutes.
Henson had been making some noise off the bench prior to this quiet night, so it's understandably a bit disappointing. Expect the Pistons to do a bit more tinkering as the season draws to a close. Thon Maker moved to the bench and suffered a big loss in value with just two points, three rebounds and one steal in six minutes.
February 25, 2020, 11:30 pmChristian WoodPF, Detroit Pistons
Christian Wood returned to the Pistons' starting lineup on Tuesday and was productive with 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting from the field and a 6-of-8 clip at the free throw line.
Wood also sprinkled in some peripherals with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes. Wood is going to be a mid-round producer ROS, so just sit back and enjoy the ride.
February 25, 2020, 11:26 pmDe'Aaron FoxPG, Sacramento Kings
After experiencing some right groin tightness on Tuesday, De'Aaron Fox will be returning to the game after a trip to the locker room.
The good news and takeaway here is that the injury is not serious enough to hold him out of the remainder of the game.

De'Aaron Fox returned to the Kings' bench after a brief trip to the locker room on Tuesday.
Fox is back and quickly, so hopefully, the reason for his trip to the locker was something as innocuous as a bathroom break.

February 25, 2020, 11:21 pmKyle LowryPG, Toronto Raptors
Kyle Lowry hit just 2-of-12 field goals vs. the Bucks on Tuesday, putting up 10 points, four rebounds, six assists, a block and a three in 41 minutes in a 97-108 loss.
Lowry's field goal percentage is always on the low side, but this one is an outlier. The near-34-year-old has continued to get it done for fantasy teams at the same clip that he has for the past few seasons.

De'Aaron Fox headed back to the locker room in Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors.
There were no details given, so stay tuned for more updates.

Danilo Gallinari heated up early in Tuesday's game and was able to finish with 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting, including five 3s with four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.
Gallinari has held steady as a top-50 player on the season and given his role with the Thunder, there's no reason to think he would slide from that pace.
February 25, 2020, 11:10 pmSerge IbakaPF, Toronto Raptors
Serge Ibaka had a poor-shooting night, going 2-for-15 from the floor (1-for-10 from deep and 0-for-2 from the line), totaling just five points, five rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes in a loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.
Ibaka has been solid with Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) on the shelf, but this was his worst game of the season. He should bounce back quickly to his recent middle-round production.
