• Jaylen Brown
    G/F, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown (hamstring) is likely to play in Monday's Game 4 against the Sixers.

    Brown said his hamstring is "improving" and that he'll remain on a minutes restriction. This is good news for the Celtics, who are looking to complete the sweep of the Sixers.

  • Devonte' Graham
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Devonte' Graham continued his hot shooting on Wednesday, dropping 40 points (12-for-21 shooting), seven triples, five assists and five rebounds as the Hornets topped the Nets 113-108.

    That makes 13 triples over his last two games, as Graham is probably the early front runner for the most improved player award. If you picked Graham up early in the season, enjoy the boost that comes with adding a top-50 point guard off waivers.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen dropped 22 points on Wednesday night to go along with four boards, two assists, and a block on 8-of-9 shooting.

    Markkanen continues to put together effective shooting nights, and has shot over 50 percent from the field in four of his last six games. Over the last two weeks, Markkanen has been a top-60 player and is quickly rising up towards his mid-round ADP.

  • Terry Rozier
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Terry Rozier logged 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Nets, contributing 13 points (5-for-15 shooting), seven ebounds, four assists and a triple.

    Another solid but unspectacular effort from Rozier, who relies on heavy usae to bludgeon his way to fantasy value. As long as he's healthy, that will stay consistent.

  • PJ Washington
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    P.J. Washington scored 13 points (4-for-6 shooting), grabbed six rebounds, drained two triples and swatted two blocks in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

    Washington started the season hot before falling into a small lull in November. He seems to be turning it on again and as long as he's healthy should have plenty of minutes in Charlotte.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. scrapped together another double-double on Wednesday, ending with 11 points and 10 rebounds on 5-of-8 shooting.

    WCJ is consistent. The trouble is, he is consistent as a top-110 player this season. The upside is there, as he is a gifted rebounder and efficient shooter, but just doesn't get the volume of shots needed to see the scoring increase. If this increases, he could creep closer to top-75 value.

  • Donovan Mitchell
    SG, Utah Jazz

    Donovan Mitchell tamed the Wolves on Monday, recording 30 points on 13-of-20 shooting with five rebounds, six assists, two treys and one blocked shot.

    This was hopefully, a turn-around game for Mitchell, who was struggling in 9-cat last week with top-90 value, dragged down mostly by his 4.0 turnovers over that span. He committed just two tonight.

  • Miles Bridges
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Miles Bridges scored 14 points (4-for-16 shooting), adding four rebounds, three triples, two assists, one steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

    It was a rough shooting night for Bridges, but it was the second consecutive game logging big minutes which is encouraging. He is still a solid option as the Hornets continue to develop their young talent this season.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist logged 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, chipping in 11 points (4-for-9 shooting), seven rebounds, two assists, one triple and one block.

    Kidd-Gilchrist had a few more minutes than normal with Malik Monk out and looked solid. He and Cody Zeller (20 minutes, 10 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and a block) played a key role in the Hornets victory.

  • Rudy Gobert
    C, Utah Jazz

    Rudy Gobert hit his stride on Wednesday, checking all his usual boxes with 20 points (8-of-11 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs), 16 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 36 minutes.

    Gobert has been a top-30 play over the last week and is steadily rising in the ranks with strong performances such as this. He should settle into a second-round value holding pattern soon enough as a rock-solid source of boards, FG percentages and blocks.

  • Thaddeus Young
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Thaddeus Young put together a nice game on Wednesday, finishing with 15 points, nine rebounds, six assists and three swipes in 33 minutes of action.

    At this point, Young is best suited for steaming steals in standard leagues. His role will diminish more when the Bulls get Otto Porter Jr. back as well.
