Kristaps Porzingis (left knee) had a rough go of it on Tuesday, producing just nine points on 2-of-8 shooting, three boards, one dime and one trey in 20 minutes in a big loss to the Suns.
Porzingis' minutes have been low since he returned from his injury, even aside from this lopsided game. That's a bit of a concern considering his past and present injury issues. Otherwise, Kristaps is doing well outside of his terrible field goal percentage.

Danilo Gallinari heated up early in Tuesday's game and was able to finish with 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting, including five 3s with four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.
Gallinari has held steady as a top-50 player on the season and given his role with the Thunder, there's no reason to think he would slide from that pace.
February 25, 2020, 11:10 pmSerge IbakaPF, Toronto Raptors
Serge Ibaka had a poor-shooting night, going 2-for-15 from the floor (1-for-10 from deep and 0-for-2 from the line), totaling just five points, five rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes in a loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.
Ibaka has been solid with Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) on the shelf, but this was his worst game of the season. He should bounce back quickly to his recent middle-round production.
February 25, 2020, 11:05 pmTerrance FergusonSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Terrance Ferguson (back stiffness) provided some solid contributions for the Thunder in 18 minutes on Tuesday, chipping in 11 points on 3-of-5 shooting from the field (all from deep), three assists and one block.
Ferguson did just enough to turn some heads for teams in deep leagues with this line. That said, we'd like to get it on a more consistent basis before recommending an add.
February 25, 2020, 11:01 pmKhris MiddletonSF, Milwaukee Bucks
Khris Middleton paced the Bucks with a team-high 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes in a 108-97 road win over the Raptors on Tuesday.
While not a spectacular game, Middleton's floor has been raised. He's been a top-10 player for the month, and games like this won't knock him out. The percentages are spectacular for a player that attempts so many triples.
February 25, 2020, 10:58 pmShai Gilgeous-AlexanderSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a great outing in Tuesday's tight 124-122 win over the Bulls, recording 21 points (5-of-11 FGs, 9-of-12 FTs), 11 rebounds, two treys, three dimes, one steal and two blocks.
SGA is holding steady, recording back to back games with at least 21 points and 11 rebounds. The dynamic line tonight just moves his needle upward. He's been a top-90 player over the last week but will be able to flirt with top-75 or better value especially with more lines like this in the future.
February 25, 2020, 10:45 pmThaddeus YoungPF, Chicago Bulls
Thaddeus Young was quiet in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder, recording just eight points (3-of-8 shooting), three rebounds, four assists, two 3s and one steal.
Young is coming off a string of fantastic games. This low-end line is just a bit of correction and is not injury-related, so there's no cause for concern here.
February 25, 2020, 10:41 pmZach LaVinePG, Chicago Bulls
Zach LaVine recorded his sixth 40-point game of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder with 41 points on 19-of-35 shooting, three treys, five rebounds, four dimes and one steal in 39 minutes.
LaVine has been one of the league's more prolific scorers this season and even the recent breakout performances of Coby White have not done anything to slow him down. On a sad note, LaVine did miss all three shot attempts from the line and committed five turnovers, but it's something owners will surely be able to look past given his high-volume scoring tonight.
February 25, 2020, 10:40 pmGiannis AntetokounmpoPF, Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo's shot attempt total was on the lower side for the second straight night, but he still managed to impress with 19 points (5-of-14 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), 19 rebounds, eight assists, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes as the Bucks beat the Raptors on Tuesday.
Giannis deferred to his teammates for much of the game before taking a handful of shots in the fourth quarter. No matter, as he did just about everything a fantasy team could need anyway, including a nice performance from the free throw line. Aside from his usual struggles there, the only thing that might derail him down the stretch is the Bucks resting him here and there during the fantasy playoffs.

February 25, 2020, 10:34 pmCoby WhitePG, Chicago Bulls
Coby White kept the ball rolling on Tuesday, reaching a new career-high with 35 points on 13-of-21 shooting, including six treys, seven rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes off the bench.
White is on a crazy heater right now, scoring 33 or more points in three straight games now, while hitting five treys or more. This is the breakout owners have been waiting for. He's been up and down all season, but lately White's reached new heights. This is top-end value for White as he explores his ceiling, but it's not likely sustainable for the remainder of 2019-20, so enjoy the ride while it lasts.
