    JaKarr Sampson got it done in Wednesday’s win over the Wizards, finishing with 16 points to go with nine rebounds, two 3-pointers and two steals in 29 minutes.

    He lead all bench players in minutes played, and similarly to Walt Lemon Jr., Sampson is playing for a roster spot for next season. He’s going to play hard in his remaining games, and looks to be a safe fantasy play for the remainder of the year.

Fantasy News

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw played a surprising 29 minutes on Saturday night, though the box score was predictably empty with two points, two rebounds and three assists on 1-for-7 shooting.

    McCaw made his return from left knee surgery on Wednesday and played only 10 minutes but got extra opportunity tonight with OG Anunoby and Norman Powell in early foul trouble. McCaw obviously isn't on the fantasy radar at all but this is troubling for Terence Davis, who was limited to 12 minutes.

  • Garrett Temple
    SG, Brooklyn Nets

    Garrett Temple's shot was off on Saturday night, as he went 6-of-19 from the field and an atrocious 2-for-14 from behind the arc.

    Temple managed 16 points, four rebounds and two dimes, but this is the sort of performance that can be a back-breaker from a guy who isn't supposed to shoot enough to tank your percentages. Temple has been a top-115/135 guy over the last two weeks and should remain rostered until the Nets get back to full health.

  • Taurean Prince
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    Taurean Prince tallied 14 points, 10 rebounds, a steal, a block and four treys against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Prince went a solid 4-of-9 from deep but an ugly 5-of-14 overall and was shooting just .398 from the field coming into this game. That's pushing his value down into the later rounds but Prince is posting top-100 numbers over the last couple weeks. He shouldn't be on any waiver wires.

  • David Nwaba
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    David Nwaba had a decent little game on Saturday, notching 10 points, four rebounds, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes.

    Nwaba has played his way back into the Nets' rotation and is inside the top-250 over the last couple of weeks. Obviously the appeal is limited, but there's some helpful numbers here if you need a lift in the 20-24-team range.

  • Rodions Kurucs
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    Rodions Kurucs emerged from obscurity on Saturday, logging 18 minutes and posting one point, seven rebounds, three assists and a block.

    Kurucs hadn't appeared in Brooklyn's previous six games and has even had some G League stints this season. He's down to 9.9 mpg in 10 appearances, but perhaps this means the second-year player, and his sneaky versatile game, is back on the upswing. We'll see how the minutes look in the next one.

  • Blake Griffin
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin returned to Pistons' bench on Saturday and appears to not be injured.

    Griffin has a long injury history, and him exiting the game was a scare but he appears to be fine.

    Blake Griffin headed to the locker room on Saturday with a trainer following him.

    If Griffin is unable to return Christian Wood could see more minutes and Andre Drummond has a higher ceiling.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic will not return after spraining his right ankle on Saturday vs. the Heat.

    Doncic's X-rays were negative but will not return. Delon Wright and Jalen Brunson will more minutes at point guard. Kristaps Porzingis, Seth Curry and Tim Hardaway Jr. will see more scoring opportunities.

  • Jerami Grant
    SF, Denver Nuggets

    Jerami Grant will start in place of Paul Millsap who is out with a right quadriceps strain on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

    Grant will face his old team the Thunder in a revenge game. He was able to have a great game with Millsap out last game.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic sprained his right ankle and is questionable to return on Saturday vs. the Heat.

    Doncic's ankle looked to have touched the floor as he turned his ankle on Kendrick Nunn's foot. The good news is that he hasn't been listed out straight away.
