• Kevin Love
    F/C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love ended his season with a rest day on Tuesday, capping off a disappointing campaign with 22 games played and averages of 17.0 points, 10.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.3 steals, 0.2 blocks and 2.4 3-pointers on .385 from the field.

    Love missed time for rest, shoulder soreness and a back injury, but the big chunk of absences came after he underwent left foot surgery. He missed 50 games from October 25 to February 8 and was dealing with plenty of restrictions even after returning, logging 30 minutes or more only nine times this season. Love’s efficiency predictably faltered as the only talented scorer on the roster, though it’s worth pointing out that he had been above 40 percent from the field in every season where he’s been relatively healthy. His career-worst .352 came in 2012-13, when he was limited to just 18 games. Odds are that he would’ve pulled that number up in a full season, which is something to keep in mind heading into next year. Love’s struggles resulted in top-65 value when he was on the court, and with just top-300 total value he was a major bust for anyone who spent an early-round pick on him in drafts.

Fantasy News

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up 21 points with nine rebounds on 5-of-14 shooting in a win over the Blazers on Sunday.

    Gilgeous-Alexander shot 5-of-14 from the field and 9-of-12 from the stripe. SGA is just outside top-100 value on the season and is looking like a late-round scoring specialist. Dennis Schroder chipped in 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting with three triples and two assists. Schroder provides solid scoring and passing value for standard leagues, but is outside top-150 on the season.

  • Chris Paul
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Chris Paul put up 20 points on 7-of-17 shooting in a win over the Blazers on Sunday.

    Paul made two of his six attempts from beyond the arc and added three steals to the box score. He is the best fantasy player on the Thunder this season and is a solid top-30 option.

  • Nerlens Noel
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Nerlens Noel put up 13 points and 12 boards in a 108-96 win over the Blazers on Sunday.

    Noel has outplayed Steven Adams this season and did so once again on Sunday night. Adams put up six points, nine rebounds and four assists on 2-of-6 shooting. Noel added one steal and two blocks to the box score as well. Both guys are worth owning in standard leagues and Adams has a huge buy-low window right now.

  • Carmelo Anthony
    PF, Portland Trail Blazers

    Carmelo Anthony had a horrible shooting night on Sunday against the Thunder as he put up nine points on 4-of-18 shooting.

    Anthony added eight rebounds and three assists to the stat sheet. He has been a late-round value since his signing and top-70 value over the past two weeks. He is worth owning in all formats, especially now that Rodney Hood is out for the season.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard put up 26 points on 8-of-24 shooting with seven assists in a loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

    Lillard added three rebounds and one steal to the box score. He had an off-night efficiency-wise, as did CJ McCollum who put up 20 points on 8-of-21 shooting. The dynamic duo has been inside top-20 value over the past two weeks.

  • Hassan Whiteside
    C, Portland Trail Blazers

    Hassan Whiteside put up 14 points with 10 rebounds and five blocks on 6-of-8 shooting in a 108-96 loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

    Whiteside dominated on the glass and on the defensive end, which is a great sign from a guy who was seemingly given up on in Miami. He has put up top-5 value over the past two weeks and has reasserted himself into fantasy dominance.

  • Paul George
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Paul George stated the he will play on Monday.

    It sounds like he is ready to go and hopefully that is good enough for Doc Rivers and the medical team. While George has been able to produce near first-round value, we have not seen him go on one of his patented top-five runs yet. It may be just around the corner.

  • Lauri Markkanen
    PF, Chicago Bulls

    Lauri Markkanen continues to rediscover his jumper, as he went 8-of-15 from the field to generate 22 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and just one turnover on Sunday against the Heat.

    It has taken awhile to happen, but Markkanen has now nailed four 3-pointers in four straight contests. The buy-low window is basically slammed shut at this point, and you should expect more nights like this as Markkanen tries to make up for lost time.

  • Zach LaVine
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Zach LaVine had a putrid outing on Sunday as the Bulls lost to the Heat, producing 18 points (5-of-19 FG, 7-of-9 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals, one 3-pointer and seven turnovers.

    Those field-goal percentage and turnovers are too awful to ignore. The game remained close throughout but LaVine was unable to get it going tonight. He will return to his usual mid-round ways in the next one.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Kris Dunn was strong on Sunday against the Heat, tallying 16 points (6-of-9 FG, 4-of-5 FT), five rebounds and three steals.

    Dunn is always bringing the steals to the table, and the added benefit of getting to the free-throw line and tallying some points was a bonus. Coby White got hot as he went for 11 points, eight assists and three 3-pointers over 31 minutes. That made Tomas Satoransky an afterthought as he went for six points (2-of-8 FG) and little else over 22 minutes. Satoransky remains a hold, White is just worth monitoring unless you are in a deep league, and Dunn should be considered in 12-team leagues as he is getting consistent minutes and is going to deliver steals with all of that opportunity.
