• Kyle Korver
    G/F, Utah Jazz

    Kyle Korver is uncertain if he will return for the 2019-20 season and has contemplated retirement.

    “There’s a real cost as you get older,” Korver said. “There’s all of what you need to put into the game, but there’s also a family cost. That’s probably where I’m at, is weighing that cost.” Korver has a player option for the 2019-20 season that becomes partially guaranteed after July 7. It would be his 17th NBA season if he chooses to return.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic scored 19 points to go with three triples in 27 minutes off the bench as the Heat lost 124-129 to the Hawks on Thursday night.

    Dragic took advantage of Tyler Herro's absence yet again for his scoring output. Dragic has not been a consistent producer on this deep Heat squad and probably does not need to be rostered in all standard leagues. The same can be said for Kendrick Nunn, who has faded precipitously since his hot start. Nunn scored 14 points but didn't add much else in his 23 minutes.

  • Jae Crowder
    PF, Miami Heat

    Jae Crowder was limited to 23 minutes on Thursday as he fouled out after scoring 14 points and hitting two triples.

    Crowder has been fantastic since joining the Heat and earned his first start with his new squad. He didn't get the minutes because of the fouls but he did still produce something. He replaced Derrick Jones in the starting lineup, who did nothing against Utah going into the break. Jones dealt with a bruised shin in this contest and was limited to six points in 13 minutes.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler joined the Heat coming up short on Thursday, finishing with 17 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, two steals and a blocked shot in 34 minutes.

    Butler was close to a triple-double but more important he contributed across the board after an empty scoring night before the All-Star break. The shooting was disappointing this time around (6-of-18) but this production across the board is what we get excited about for Butler.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Bam Adebayo's monster game wasn't enough as the Heat fell to the Hawks on Thursday night despite 28 points, 19 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a block from Bam in 36 minutes.

    Despite the insane stat line, we're most impressed with 10-of-12 from the charity stripe for Bam. Surely, he didn't just learn how to shoot free throws effectively over the All-Star break so that should fall back down to normal. The good thing is, normal is still a top-40 player at worst.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins racked up two steals and three blocks to add a jolt to an otherwise quiet 12 points and seven rebounds on Thursday night.

    Collins has been a huge asset on a per-game basis and as long as Clint Capela is out, he is going to be an elite option. Right now, Dewayne Dedmon is starting at center for the Hawks and isn't providing much, going scoreless with eight boards in 20 minutes. We'll see how the rotation shakes out when Capela is healthy, but it shouldn't affect Collins too much because of his ability to stretch the floor.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter went for 17 points, six rebounds and three triples on Thursday night.

    Hunter played through a sprained right ankle in this game and frankly played quite well. We'd love to see some more defensive counters than this but if he's going to go 7-of-12 from the floor, we shouldn't complain.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter played 40 minutes in Thursday's win over the Heat, scoring 17 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three triples as the Hawks beat the Heat.

    Huerter did manage to play this game and produced quite well. He has trended up over the last two months as a top-100 player. Unfortunately, the percentages do limit his upside, but he should at least be a 3-point specialist. Cam Reddish played 37 minutes for his 16 points, four rebounds and four defensive counters. Reddish has similarly trended up of late as he approaches late-round value. He may have some value in deep leagues.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young ran the show on Thursday night, scoring a season-high 50 points (12-of-25 shooting, 18-of-19 from the line), eight assists, eight 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Young continued his great season and produced exactly how we expect him to. He scored in bunches, made a lot of triples, picked up his fair share of dimes and turned it over in bulk as well. These are kind of the four things we expect right now from Young. Some days are going to be tougher shooting the ball but Young is a top-20 asset for all leagues.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez scored 18 points on Thursday night in 24 minutes of action as the Bucks routed the Pistons 126-106.

    Lopez was very efficient while making 9-of-10 from the line. Unfortunately, this was a pretty empty line because he only pulled down two boards and didn't block any shots. He should still be a top-50 asset going forward and he should continue to block shots at high volume.

  • Eric Bledsoe
    PG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Eric Bledsoe scored 19 points to go along with four rebounds and six assists in 27 minutes in Thursday's win over the Pistons.

    Bledsoe added two triples and three defensive counters to a great line. Bled has had some rough patches at times this year, but he's really hitting his stride and he is a must-start option for all fantasy teams.
