March 4, 2019, 10:04 pmHassan Whiteside - C - Miami Heat
Hassan Whiteside returned to action off the bench on Monday, scoring four points on 2-of-3 shooting while adding seven rebounds, two assists and three blocks.
Whiteside missed the previous three games with a left hip strain but only logged 15 minutes off the bench. He was still able to deliver everything owners want out of him besides points which is good news, but the real question mark is how healthy he really is. The Heat are comfortable running Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk heavy minutes so it might take a couple games before Whiteside gets his usual dosage of playing time, but even then he was never a 30-minute guy when fully healthy.
March 24, 2019, 8:47 pmMarc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors
Marc Gasol started on Sunday and had one of his best performances as a Raptor with 17 points, six assists and three blocks in just 23 minutes of action.
He grabbed four rebounds, two triples and one steal to the stat sheet. He also shot 7-of-9 from the field. Gasol, despite having a much smaller role in this offense than the Memphis offense, has still been able to provide middle-round value. Although the deadline did not go Gasol's fantasy owners way when he got moved to the Raptors, he is still reliable enough to guarantee middle-round value.
March 24, 2019, 8:44 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges is having the finest stretch of his rookie campaign with Sunday's matchup against the Raptors culminating in a stuffed box score with 16 points, two triples, six boards, a block, a steal and an assist.
Turner has been a top-45 value over his last four games and it's all thanks to his strong steals and triples. The Hornets are playing hungry given their playoff chances are at stake with every game.
March 24, 2019, 8:42 pmKyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors
Kyle Lowry (right ankle soreness) suited up for Sunday's loss to the Hornets and had a quiet game with just seven points and six assists in 28 minutes of action.
He added two rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer to the box score while shooting 3-of-5 from the field. He got outplayed by Fred VanVleet, who had 12 points, five rebounds and three assists on 5-of-9 shooting. VanVleet has middle-round potential for the final stretch of the season, while Lowry is always a lock for top-50 value.
March 24, 2019, 8:41 pmMike Muscala - F/C - Los Angeles Lakers
Mike Muscala (right ankle) will miss Sunday's matchup with the Kings.
Muscala also missed Friday's game and shouldn't be in the core of anyone's fantasy team. Lance Stephenson (left toe) played on Friday and is good to go again on Sunday.

March 24, 2019, 8:37 pmPascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam had a great game against the Hornets on Sunday as he put up 23 points, seven rebounds and five assists on 9-of-14 shooting.
Siakam has consistently hovered around top-40 value for the entire season and is the leading candidate for Most Improved Player. He hit his only attempt from deep, made all four of his shots from the stripe and added one steal and one block as well. His skill set is versatile and will be an attractive fantasy asset for years to come.
March 24, 2019, 8:36 pmKemba Walker - G - Charlotte Hornets
Kemba Walker delivered 15 points, 13 assists, eight boards and four steals on Sunday against the Raptors.
Walker is fighting for the post-season after being a first time all start. The Hornets currently sit in tenth and need a spectacular finish to sniff the post-season.
March 24, 2019, 8:34 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb hit one of the more memorable buzzer beaters of recent years to secure the 115-114 win over the Raptors on Sunday, finishing with 13 points, three triples and two blocks.
Feel free to check the shot out on twitter (below). It has some flavors of a deep triple Brandon Roy once hit but that one was a bit closer and nothing but net. The Hornets stay in the playoff chase with the win tonight.

March 24, 2019, 8:09 pmReggie Bullock - F - Los Angeles Lakers
Reggie Bullock will miss Sunday's matchup with the Kings due to his right plantar fasciitis.
Bullock will open up more time for the healthy players in L.A.'s backcourt. Josh Hart (knee) will also miss the contest.

March 24, 2019, 8:00 pmGary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets
Gary Harris scored 11 points on Sunday against the Pacers, adding a triple, a block and an assists.
Harris has now been in double-figures in five straight games and it looks like he's rounding back into form after missing time due to injuries.
March 24, 2019, 7:58 pmAaron Holiday - G - Indiana Pacers
Aaron Holiday saw 19 minutes of action on Sunday since the game was out of reach in favor of the Pacers and had 11 points with five dimes.
He has played fairly well in the minutes he has seen this season, but it is a pretty small sample size so it is nice to see games like this where he nears 20 minutes. Tyreke Evans also supplied some reliable bench scoring with 11 points, five rebounds and three assists on 5-of-9 shooting. Neither guy should be on fantasy radars and they can be left on the waiver wire.
