• Guerschon Yabusele
    F, Boston Celtics

    Guerschon Yabusele (lower back soreness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Yabusele hasn't seen the floor in this series, so there's nothing to take away from his absence.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, 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.

  • Thaddeus Young
    PF, 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.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic scored 19 points to go with three triples in 27 minutes off the bench as the Heat lost 124-129 to the Hawks on Thursday night.

    Dragic took advantage of Tyler Herro's absence yet again for his scoring output. Dragic has not been a consistent producer on this deep Heat squad and probably does not need to be rostered in all standard leagues. The same can be said for Kendrick Nunn, who has faded precipitously since his hot start. Nunn scored 14 points but didn't add much else in his 23 minutes.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Miami Heat

    Jae Crowder was limited to 23 minutes on Thursday as he fouled out after scoring 14 points and hitting two triples.

    Crowder has been fantastic since joining the Heat and earned his first start with his new squad. He didn't get the minutes because of the fouls but he did still produce something. He replaced Derrick Jones in the starting lineup, who did nothing against Utah going into the break. Jones dealt with a bruised shin in this contest and was limited to six points in 13 minutes.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler joined the Heat coming up short on Thursday, finishing with 17 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, two steals and a blocked shot in 34 minutes.

    Butler was close to a triple-double but more important he contributed across the board after an empty scoring night before the All-Star break. The shooting was disappointing this time around (6-of-18) but this production across the board is what we get excited about for Butler.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo's monster game wasn't enough as the Heat fell to the Hawks on Thursday night despite 28 points, 19 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a block from Bam in 36 minutes.

    Despite the insane stat line, we're most impressed with 10-of-12 from the charity stripe for Bam. Surely, he didn't just learn how to shoot free throws effectively over the All-Star break so that should fall back down to normal. The good thing is, normal is still a top-40 player at worst.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins racked up two steals and three blocks to add a jolt to an otherwise quiet 12 points and seven rebounds on Thursday night.

    Collins has been a huge asset on a per-game basis and as long as Clint Capela is out, he is going to be an elite option. Right now, Dewayne Dedmon is starting at center for the Hawks and isn't providing much, going scoreless with eight boards in 20 minutes. We'll see how the rotation shakes out when Capela is healthy, but it shouldn't affect Collins too much because of his ability to stretch the floor.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter went for 17 points, six rebounds and three triples on Thursday night.

    Hunter played through a sprained right ankle in this game and frankly played quite well. We'd love to see some more defensive counters than this but if he's going to go 7-of-12 from the floor, we shouldn't complain.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter played 40 minutes in Thursday's win over the Heat, scoring 17 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three triples as the Hawks beat the Heat.

    Huerter did manage to play this game and produced quite well. He has trended up over the last two months as a top-100 player. Unfortunately, the percentages do limit his upside, but he should at least be a 3-point specialist. Cam Reddish played 37 minutes for his 16 points, four rebounds and four defensive counters. Reddish has similarly trended up of late as he approaches late-round value. He may have some value in deep leagues.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young ran the show on Thursday night, scoring a season-high 50 points (12-of-25 shooting, 18-of-19 from the line), eight assists, eight 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Young continued his great season and produced exactly how we expect him to. He scored in bunches, made a lot of triples, picked up his fair share of dimes and turned it over in bulk as well. These are kind of the four things we expect right now from Young. Some days are going to be tougher shooting the ball but Young is a top-20 asset for all leagues.
