February 7, 2019, 8:40 pmKhris Middleton - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton will be rested on Friday against the Mavericks.
This is just a scheduled of-night for Middleton. In his absence, we could see a little more run for some bench wings in Tony Snell and Pat Connaughton. They could be desperation daily plays.

February 22, 2019, 1:31 amEric Gordon - G - Houston Rockets
Eric Gordon scored 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on Thursday.
Gordon logged 39 minutes and was one of the few Rockets players outside of James Harden and Chris Paul that could get anything going from the perimeter. Now that the team is healthy his value will take a dip but he remains a decent source of triples because of the rate at which he shoots them.
February 22, 2019, 1:30 amKenneth Faried - F/C - Houston Rockets
Kenneth Faried scored 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting with a 3-pointer, six rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block on Thursday.
Faried logged minutes alongside both NeNe and Clint Capela tonight which is surprising considering Coach D'Antoni almost exclusively plays with one big man. There was a play in the game where NeNe set a flare screen for Faried to pop out and shoot a 3-pointer which he drained and it signified a set play designed to get him to shoot. If Faried is going to consistently patrol the perimeter there may be some 14 or 16-team league value but as it stands the 18 minutes are the real thing to look at here and it'll be difficult to depend on consistent production within that time.
February 22, 2019, 1:28 amStephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors
Stephen Curry scored 36 points on 12-of-23 shooting to go with six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and 10 3-pointers in Thursday's 125-123 win over the Kings.
Curry had another 10-bomb from deep and was drilling them in crunch time too. Something about a 3-pointer from Curry is just backbreaking but the Kings were resilient tonight, clawing their way back just to get drilled again by the two-time MVP. We're going to see this happen a few more times this season as the Warriors are firing on all cylinders thanks to their best player.
February 22, 2019, 1:26 amKevin Durant - F - Golden State Warriors
Kevin Durant scored 28 points on 10-of-20 shooting with nine rebounds, four assists, a steal, a 3-pointer and seven blocks against the Kings on Thursday.
Durant set a career-high with seven blocks tonight and six of them came in the first half. We've seen a few block parties hosted by him before so it's not like this type of line is too surprising, but it's good to see him being active on the defensive end of the floor again. In his last five games he's averaging 2.6 blocks but only 0.4 steals.
February 22, 2019, 1:24 amDeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors
DeMarcus Cousins double-doubled against the Kings on Thursday with 17 points and 10 boards while chipping in three assists, a block and a 3-pointer.
Cousins logged 27 minutes and has surpassed the 25-minute mark in his last four games played (excluding the Blazers game he sat out). Stashing him has paid off and the all-around production will keep coming.
February 22, 2019, 1:23 amKlay Thompson - G - Golden State Warriors
Klay Thompson scored 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting with three 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and a steal on Thursday.
Thompson was a bit icy from deep from his standards but the Warriors got enough firepower from their main two superstars to pull through with a win.
February 22, 2019, 1:22 amDraymond Green - F - Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green logged 34 minutes on Thursday and scored 12 points on 3-of-6 shooting with six rebounds, eight assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Green came through for the Warriors at the end of this game and it was his best shooting display from deep in quite some time. He's gaining confidence (not like he needed anymore) and was integral for the Warriors in the fourth quarter as they barely pulled out a win against a tough Kings team.
February 22, 2019, 1:20 amMarvin Bagley III - F - Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley went bananas on Thursday, scoring 28 points on 8-of-19 shooting with 14 rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Bagley feasted on the Warriors and brought his high energy on both ends of the floor. The Warriors looked like they had no answer for the booming rookie and his stock has been trending upwards for quite some time now.
February 22, 2019, 1:18 amNemanja Bjelica - F - Sacramento Kings
Nemanja Bjelica received a DNP-CD against the Warriors on Thursday.
Bjelica is now the odd man out with Bogdan Bogdanovic starting and Harrison Barnes entering the fray as well. It doesn't help that Marvin Bagley has been going bonkers and as of now Bjelica is waiver wire fodder.
February 22, 2019, 1:17 amBogdan Bogdanovic - G - Sacramento Kings
Bogdan Bogdanovic started on Thursday and scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with a 3-pointer, three rebounds, six assists and two steals.
Bogdanovic finally drew the start and it's about time the Kings started their best forward. He and De'Aaron Fox are both playmakers and it's good to see them both handing out enough dimes to keep their owners satisfied.
