• Royal Ivey
    Team, New York Knicks

    The Knicks are finalizing a deal with current Thunder assistant Royal Ivey to join David Fizdale's staff.

    Ivey is from Queens, so this is a bit of a homecoming for him. Not far removed from his playing days, Ivey maintains a solid reputation around the league and should add to the more vibrant, youthful vibe that Fizdale seems to be going for. The Knicks will be stocked with a lot of young guys in the coming years so it's wise to have a guy like Ivey around.

Fantasy News

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown had 25 points and eight rebounds in the Celtics' victory over the T-Wolves on Friday, going a solid 10-of17 from the field.

    This was a solid game from Brown and he hit two of his five threes. He has really fallen off since starting out the season on a high-note and has subsequently been out of the top-100 over the past two months. The opportunity to sell-high is long gone but his volume for the Celtics should remain the same. He still needs to be owned in all formats and if someone happens to drop him during this low period, scoop him up.

  • DeMar DeRozan
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan (back spasms) led the Spurs in minutes with 36 on Friday, showing no signs of his back issue as he posted 18 points (8-of-17 shooting), five rebounds, seven assists and one block.

    DeRozan's minutes are a clear sign that he's out of the woods and is ready to continue on his career season. The efficiency and assists should be enough to carry him to a guaranteed top-50 finish at the least.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis suffered a bruised right calf in the first half of Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies but has since checked back into the game.

    He seemed OK when he returned, but the lanky center is frequently getting dinged up. Fantasy owners should stay tuned and look for an update on his calf after the Lakers' game against the Grizzles.

  • Dejounte Murray
    PG, San Antonio Spurs

    Dejounte Murray posted a fantastic two-way performance in a 113-104 win over the Jazz on Friday, recording 23 points (10-of-16 shooting), seven rebounds, one trey, four assists and four steals in 33 minutes.

    Murray has been playing great basketball lately and hopefully, he can keep it consistent for the fantasy stretch run. The Spurs have a great schedule ahead and he's going to be a potential swing-player for many fantasy teams if he keeps this up.

  • Daniel Theis
    PF, Boston Celtics

    Daniel Theis had a huge game on Friday vs. the T-Wolves, playing 27 minutes and scoring 25 points with 16 rebounds, both of which are new career-highs.

    There is. Theis is back and better than ever. Enes Kanter did not play tonight, so that certainly helped him, but keep Theis entrenched in your fantasy lineups. He looks fully healthy and took advantage on Friday.

  • Chris Paul
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Chris Paul absolutely took control of the game in the fourth quarter en route to 29 points (11-for-17 shooting), four triples, four rebounds and two assists as the Thunder beat the Nuggets 113-101.

    Paul continues to be dynamite in crunch time this season as he hit big shot after big shot in the fourth quarter to hold off any comeback attempts by Jokic and the Nuggets. CP3 has been healthy and productive all season, one of the best stories of fantasy hoops in 2020.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby started Friday's game vs. the Suns and scored 12 points, grabbed five rebound and blocked four shots in 38 minutes.

    Anunoby led the Raptors in minutes on Friday and this was a good showing for the young forward out of Indiana. However, he has been far too inconsistent to trust in 12-team leagues this season. If he can block shots like he did on Friday his value could see a nice little boost.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams had a great game on Friday, with 19 points (7-for-14 shooting), 17 rebounds, four steals, two blocks and two assists across 32 minutes.

    Adams turned in some of his trademark rebounding in this one, while chipping in some defensive stats as well. Adams is starting to heat up a bit but doesn't have the highest ceiling and will typically hurt you in free throws as well, though he went 5-for-6 tonight.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander notched 11 points (4-for-14 shooting), nine rebounds, nine assists and a block in Friday's win over the Nuggets.

    SGA did some good things in this one despite struggling with his shot. He mostly fed off Chris Paul who dominated the end of the game for the Thunder. Danilo Gallinari finished with 15 points (4-for-14 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, two triples and one seal in 32 minutes.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry double-doubled on Friday vs. the Suns, putting up 13 points, 10 assists and adding five rebounds.

    Lowry also had a team-high six turnovers and was not all that effective shooting the ball. This was not one of his better games, but Lowry has maintained his mid-round fantasy value all season. With the Raptors playing increasingly better as the season progresses and looking at a home series in the first round of the playoffs, Lowry should finish very strong, barring injury
