• John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins scored 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting (3-of-3 from deep) with 14 rebounds, two assists and one steal in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors.

    Collins has been in the headlines because, heck, look at this line it's great on the surface. But the low defensive stats have dogged him all year as he's averaging just 0.7 combined steals and blocks, while 18.4 points and 10.4 boards on 58.3 percent shooting are keeping him afloat. It's a weird buy low period for folks looking at his late-mid round value and not buying a bounceback in the defensive stat categories.

Fantasy News

  • Jayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum had a decent game on Wednesday as he managed to score 16 points with 10 rebounds on 6-of-16 shooting in a win over the Raptors.

    He made one 3-pointer and added two assists and one block to the box score. Tatum is inside the top-50 on the season. Marcus Morris had an off-night as he only had six points with eight rebounds and five fouls on 2-of-9 shooting. Morris has also been a good fantasy asset and he is a top-80 value.

  • Omri Casspi - F - Memphis Grizzlies

    Omri Casspi came off the bench for 36 minutes on Wednesday night, dropping 17 points, six rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in the process.

    Casspi also went 7-of-13 from the field and took full advantage of Justin Holiday sitting early despite drawing the start. It's hard to chase this game but with all of Memphis' injuries on the wing you at least know that Casspi will be one of the first men up. Deep-leaguers, you can take a flier if you're feeling frisky. Just don't get attached.

  • Gordon Hayward - F - Boston Celtics

    Gordon Hayward put up 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with five assists in a win over the Raptors on Wednesday.

    He is just outside top-120 value on the season and has been a solid late-round guy despite playing worse than expectations. He is still not playing like the player he was in Utah, but he has shown flashes of the old Hayward in a few games this season. Hang onto him and hope that he can get his old form back.

  • Justin Holiday - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Justin Holiday drew the start on Wednesday night but continued to frustrate fantasy owners, logging only 17 minutes but still managing five points, four rebounds, four steals, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Holiday committed a foolish early foul and ended up sitting most of the first half, but he at least managed to round out his box score nicely thereafter. Fantasy owners can take that with them tonight but they were still likely hoping for a steadier performance given the start. 17 minutes won't be enough to cut it on most nights, and although this one had extensive garbage time we'd still like to see more before declaring him must-start once again. If nothing else, Holiday appears to be back on the right track.

  • Aron Baynes - F/C - Boston Celtics

    Aron Baynes returned from a broken left hand on Wednesday and scored nine points with five rebounds in a win over the Raptors.

    Marcus Smart also returned from illness and had five points with four rebounds, three assists and three steals. Smart has been a top-100 player this season and he can be plugged back into lineups. Baynes can remain on the wire.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    Giannis Antetokounmpo paced the Bucks in Wednesday's road win with 27 points (10-for-14 FG, 7-for-8 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks.

    The Bucks built up a big lead in the third quarter and GA only needed 22 minutes to drop this full line. It meant that he was really the only one to escape with a big line out of the usual suspects. Eric Bledsoe had 16 points, four dimes, three steals and a pair of threes while Malcolm Brogdon went 9-6-4 and Khris Middleton had just 11-6-5.

  • Sterling Brown - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Sterling Brown put up 11 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and two threes on Wednesday night.

    Brown played 28 minutes off the bench and looks to be ahead of George Hill in the rotation at the moment. You'd need to be in an obnoxiously deep league to run to the wire for Brown but he's been playing 22.8 minutes over his last five with 10.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 triples in the process.

  • D.J. Wilson - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    D.J. Wilson notched a new career-high with 13 points in Wednesday's win.

    Wilson added two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three triples in 23 minutes off the bench. The blocks tied a career-best and the triples were a new career-high, so it was quite the night for him. If you're in a 20-team league and Wilson is available he might be worth a look.

  • George Hill - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    George Hill played through bruised ribs on Wednesday night, logging 15 minutes and posting nine points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointers.

    Hill isn't dealing with a serious injury but remains off the fantasy radar just the same. He's not worth monitoring until his shooting undergoes some course correction.

  • Austin Rivers - G - Houston Rockets

    Although it took him a while to get started, Austin Rivers still ended up having a solid game in Wednesday's loss to the Nets as he put up 13 points, five rebounds, six assists and two defensive stats.

    As long as Chris Paul is sidelined, Rivers is a great stream and could provide top-100 value in that stretch. He only shot 5-of-14 from the field, but he started out 1-of-7 so he turned his performance around near the end of the game. Gerald Green came off the bench for 15 points on five 3-pointers and missed the game-winning three in overtime.
