May 9, 2018, 1:39 pmPeja StojakovicTeam, Sacramento Kings
Former Sacramento Kings great Peja Stojakovic was promoted to assistant general manager.
Stojakovic, formerly one of the NBA's best shooters, has been promoted from vice president of basketball operations to assistant GM for the Kings. The sharpshooter joined the Kings' front office in 2015 under GM Vlade Divac and he will now focus on player development and oversight of the Stockton Kings. The Kings sure do love keeping players from their famed 2002 team involved in the organization. Stojakovic is most remembered for his days on an electrifying Kings team that almost ran the table, but he also played 30-plus minutes per game for Chris Paul's Hornets playoff squads and won a title with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.
February 23, 2020, 10:46 pmJrue HolidayPG, New Orleans Pelicans
Jrue Holiday put up 23 points with 15 dimes in a team-high 38 minutes of action in a 115-101 win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Holiday shot 10-of-17 from the field and added seven rebounds and three triples to the box score. He is locked in as a top-40 option for the rest of the season.
February 23, 2020, 10:43 pmZion WilliamsonPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Zion Williamson went off against the Warriors on Sunday with 28 points and seven rebounds in 33 minutes of action.
Williamson shot 13-of-20 from the field and added two assists and one block to the stat sheet. The only negative aspect of his performance was his free-throw shooting as he went just 1-of-6 from the stripe. Williamson is a middle-round option with early-round upside for anyone that is punting free throws.
February 23, 2020, 10:25 pmZach LaVinePG, Chicago Bulls
Zach LaVine was awesome against the Wizards on Sunday, accounting for 32 points (11-of-20 FG), six 3-pointers, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.
LaVine did have nine turnovers which is a pain for 9-CAT leagues, but we can't complain when he performs like this. While the team has not been winning games, LaVine has proven he is an early-round player in fantasy circles this season. He's a do it all guard that can thrive in any format.
February 23, 2020, 10:20 pmThaddeus YoungPF, Chicago Bulls
Thaddeus Young is in the zone, going for 23 points (8-of-14 FG), five 3-pointers, six rebounds and three steals vs. the Wizards on Sunday.
Young is the lead option at power forward and has been playing exquisitely ever since he was moved into the role. Lauri Markkanen's eventual return will end the fun, but that is not an issue yet, and even when Wendell Carter Jr. returns, you should still view Young as a standard league player.
February 23, 2020, 10:16 pmTomas SatoranskyPG, Chicago Bulls
Tomas Satoransky did it all on Sunday, going for 15 points, 13 assists, three rebounds, and four steals against the Wizards.
With Kris Dunn done for the year most likely Satoransky is in an excellent position for the stretch run. It took him a while to secure the point guard job for the Bulls, but much like his past seasons with the Wizards, Satoransky's value often takes some time to be appreciated, and it looks like he will be a reliable performer to close out the season in standard leagues.
February 23, 2020, 10:12 pmCoby WhitePG, Chicago Bulls
Coby White stayed red hot and dropped 33 points yet again on Sunday vs. the Wizards, going 11-of-18 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, while totaling five 3-pointers, six rebounds, two steals and one block.
Welcome to fantasy basketball Coby White. He was beginning to fill up the box score before the All-Star break, but these two performances are on a completely different planet. White was able to thrive alongside Tomas Satoransky tonight, which is even better for his ROS prospects. He's a must-add if that was not already clear in standard leagues, and while it is hard to imagine he can do this for the third time, White still belongs on your roster for his upside alone.
February 23, 2020, 10:04 pmDaniel GaffordPF, Chicago Bulls
Daniel Gafford got the start on Sunday vs. the Wizards, putting up 10 points (5-of-6 FG, 0-of-4 FT), two rebounds, two blocks and three turnovers.
Gafford put up some numbers over his 22 minutes, but that shooting from the free-throw line is a headache. Wendell Carter Jr.'s return is on the horizon, Luke Kornet should also not be missing for too long, making Gafford more of a blocks-specialist as long as he retains the starting role. This should be a short-term streaming situation.
February 23, 2020, 9:58 pmBradley BealSG, Washington Wizards
Bradley Beal exploded for a career-high 53 points (15-of-27 FG, 18-of-20 FT) on Sunday vs. the Bulls, but it was not enough as the Wizards fell 117-126.
With the Wizards on the fringes of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference Beal has to be frustrated that they came out of the break with losses to the Bulls tonight and Cavs on Friday. He rounded out this performance with five 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and seven turnovers. Beal is plenty motivated to deliver first-round value as long as he is active and should help plenty of fantasy squads down the stretch.
February 23, 2020, 9:56 pmLuguentz DortPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Luguentz Dort put up 15 points on 6-of-6 shooting with three steals in a win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Dort shot 2-of-2 from beyond the arc while adding two rebounds and two assists to the box score. Dort also had a team-high plus/minus of plus-36 in his 24 minutes of action. He is worth a flier for deeper leagues due to his shooting and steals.
February 23, 2020, 9:52 pmShai Gilgeous-AlexanderSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting with 13 rebounds and four assists in a blowout win over the Spurs on Sunday.
SGA knocked down all five of his attempts from the stripe and knocked down one triple as well. He is locked in at top-50 value, while his teammate Chris Paul continues to hover around top-10 value. Paul put up 12 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists in this one.
