April 12, 2018, 2:55 amJustise WinslowSF, Miami Heat
Justise Winslow scored 11 points off the bench in Wednesday's finale against the Raptors, hitting 5-of-12 shots (1-of-6 FTs) with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 37 minutes.
A left knee injury looked minor but ended up costing Winslow a month, and he finished with just 68 games played while putting up mostly pedestrian numbers. He hit just 42.5 percent from the field and 63.5 percent from the line, which kept him at the bottom of the top-225 when he was on the floor.
December 13, 2019, 10:17 pmJimmy ButlerSG, Miami Heat
Jimmy Butler contributed 23 points (9-for-20 shooting), three rebounds, three assists and four steals in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.
Butler went 0-for-5 from beyond the arc on Wednesday, but still provided a good fantasy line. He is the undisputed leader of this young Heat team and a good bet for all-around production most nights.
December 13, 2019, 10:14 pmKendrick NunnPG, Miami Heat
Kendrick Nunn had 16 points (7-for-15 shooting), seven assists, two steals, two rebounds and two threes in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.
With 36 minutes in this one, Nunn continues to start and be a featured member of the Heat rotation. While they've been dealing with injuries all season long, it seems Nunn's role is safer than anyone not named Jimmy Butler or Bam Adebayo for this Heat team.

Justise Winslow (back) is out Saturday vs. the Mavs.
Derrick Jones Jr. has thrived in Winslow's absence, soaking up those extra mins on the wing. DJJ is worth an add, while Winslow remains a marginal hold in 14-team leagues or deeper.

Goran Dragic (right groin strain) is not traveling to Dallas for Saturday's game vs. the Mavs.
With Dragic still out, expect Tyler Herro and Derrick Jones Jr. to see more playing time.

December 13, 2019, 10:10 pmKelly OlynykC, Miami Heat
Kelly Olynyk chipped in 15 points (4-for-8 shooting), six rebounds, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.
Olynyk also earned seven trips to the charity stripe on Wednesday, draining six of them. He and Derrick Jones Jr. – 17 points (4-for-6 shooting), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two triples – played well for the Heat off the bench.
December 13, 2019, 10:09 pmJoel EmbiidC, Philadelphia Sixers
Joel Embiid scored 24 points on 6-of-16 shooting with 11 rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and one block in 31 minutes on Friday.
The biggest takeaway from tonight is that it's the second half of a back-to-back spread and Embiid got a heavy run vs. the Celtics in the last game. This goes a long way towards improving his appeal in H2H formats, given his lesser need for load management.
December 13, 2019, 10:05 pmJosh RichardsonSF, Philadelphia Sixers
Josh Richardson shot 4-of-10 from the field and 0-for-2 from the line to end Fridays 116-109 win over the Pelicans with eight points and five boards.
Richardson is still getting his legs back and has nice buy-low window attached to him right now. This performance is a floor-level play, so expect better things to come.
December 13, 2019, 10:03 pmMike ScottPF, Philadelphia Sixers
Mike Scott started again for the Sixers for an injured Al Horford (left knee soreness/left hamstring tightness) and produced five points, nine rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal.
Scott continues to be the primary beneficiary of Horford's absence and is worth a short-term hold in 18-team leagues or deeper.
December 13, 2019, 10:02 pmJames HardenPG, Houston Rockets
James Harden scored 54 points (19-for-31 shooting) with 10 triples, seven assists, five rebounds, three blocks and two steals in Wednesday's 130-107 win over the Magic.
It was a day ending in "Y" so Harden went ahead and scored 50 points again. It was especially impressive that he knocked down 10 threes despite being guarded by the much taller Jonathan Isaac. Harden is one step closer to averaging an absurd 40 ppg this year.
December 13, 2019, 9:59 pmKenrich WilliamsPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Kenrich Williams was invisible for the Pelicans in 26 minutes as a starter on Friday, kicking in three points (1-of-3 from deep), four rebounds and one assist.
Williams has been unable to provide quality value, or any value for that matter, in recent games. He can be dropped in most formats for a hot FA.
