• Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo (sore right quad, left hip contusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards.

    If you have another option in daily leagues you can make that move now. It’s likely just a maintenance day for Giannis as his services shouldn’t beĀ  needed against the lowly Wizards. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe (sore left hamstring, playing) should get the largest boosts in usage. Donte DiVincenzo (right ankle, left heel) will join Giannis on the sidelines.

  • Josh Okogie - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Josh Okogie filled up the stat sheet with 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting while adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and a 3-pointer against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Lines like this flash his potential and the damage he can do once he gets it together. Although, he's been known for his inconsistency but that comes with being a rookie. Fantasy owners can take a hard look at him if they have a streaming spot open and if the remaining games are in favor of Okogie blowing up or at least put up a respectable line.

  • Rudy Gobert - C - Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert had an easy night of work on Saturday against the Bulls, overpowering them for 21 points (9-of-11 FG, 3-of-7 FT, 14 rebounds and four blocks in just 26 minutes.

    The Jazz were up by 34 at the half, nearly doubling the Bulls with the score 70-36 through two quarters. It meant that the Jazz had a lot of good-but-not great lines. Donovan Mitchell had 16 points, eight rebounds, three dimes and a pair of threes, Joe Ingles went for 13-6-5 with two threes of his own and Ricky Rubio went 6-of-11 from the field for 12 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal. No starter played more than 27 minutes in this cakewalk.

  • Tyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves

    Tyus Jones scored 12 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, nine dimes and a steal in 35 minutes on Saturday.

    With Jeff Teague (left foot) and Derrick Rose (left elbow) out for the rest of the season, Jones will be able to put up lines like this and reward fantasy owners who snagged him early. The steals and assists will always be consistent but the field goal shooting has never been that great to begin with.

  • Jae Crowder - F - Utah Jazz

    Jae Crowder came off the bench for 11 points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes on Saturday night.

    The Bulls barely showed up so a lot of guys had muted lines in limited run, but not Crowder. He's a solid option in 9-cat leagues for threes, rebounds and some steals, but he's not must-own by any stretch. Ekpe Udoh had four blocks in eight minutes, Thabo Sefolosha grabbed three steals in 15 minutes and Raul Neto scored 10 points in 15 minutes to highlight some other solid bench performances.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Mike Conley scored 23 points with three assists, three rebounds and two triples in a 99-112 loss against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Conley has been posting top-12 value in the past month with averages of 25.7 points on 48.4 percent shooting, 2.6 triples, 3.5 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.1 steals. With the Grizzlies not fighting for a playoff spot, a shut down from the coaching staff might be imminent to keep him fresh heading into next season.

  • Trae Young - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young cooked the Sixers for 32 points (11-of-20 shooting), six rebounds, 11 assists, a block, four 3-pointers and the game-winning floater with 0.1 seconds left in Saturday's 129-127 win.

    Young has made tremendous strides over the course of the season and doesn't shy away from big moments. His game-winner saw him blast past Jimmy Butler towards Joel Embiid in the paint, but he calmly dropped in his runner. Six turnovers are the only blemish on tonight's line but Young looks ready to scorch everyone who was making fun of the Hawks early on. Atlanta's a fun team to watch with a great young core, and their fans should be very excited about the future.

  • Joakim Noah - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (right knee) went to the locker room and didn't return in Saturday's game against the Wolves.

    Before the premature ending to his night, he posted a line of five points, five rebounds, three assists on 1-of-4 shooting. He's been a top-90 value in the past month with averages of 11.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.2 blocks and 55.1 percent shooting from the field.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince put up 23 points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in Saturday's home win.

    Prince went 8-of-15 from the field and was second on the team with 31 minutes played. He's found his form again recently, and while it might be too little too late for a lot of fantasy owners you should make sure that Prince isn't on the wire anywhere given his solid few weeks.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins posted 13 points and nine rebounds against the Sixers on Saturday night but also came through with a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Collins' defensive numbers have lagged for much of the season and it's nice to see him go on a bit of a run lately, even if it's at the expense of his usually-gaudy numbers in scoring and rebounding. Although he's averaging only 0.6 blocks on the season, Collins has at least one swat in seven of his last nine and 1.3 per game in the month of March. Here's hoping it keeps up over the season's final handful of games.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas put up 20 points with 14 rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 26 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Make this the 15th double-double for the year for Valanciunas who has thrived after being traded from Toronto. Huge lines like this make fantasy owners optimistic that he can keep this up in a full season if given the opportunity. He's been a top-50 player in the past month and should continue to trend around this range if he puts up lines like this.
