• Lonzo Ball
    G, Los Angeles Lakers

    Lonzo Ball put up nine points, 10 rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Magic on Sunday.

    It's sort of a weird line for Ball, though he did put up nine points, 10 rebounds, two assists and a block on Friday night as well. He's looking like a late-round option these days as he gets squeezed for work on the revamped Lakers. Speaking of weird, Lance Stephenson finished with 13 points and four 3-pointers. Don't expect him to become a long-range marksman anytime soon.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love continued to crush his ADP in Wednesday's loss, scoring 25 points (8-of-14 shooting) to go with 13 rebounds, two assists, five triples and four turnovers.

    Love has been well worth the gamble for those who took him in the middle rounds. He's looked a lot like he did in his Minnesota days, being healthy as the number one option in the offense. He's an intriguing sell-high candidate in head-to-head leagues with the chances of injury and end of year shut-down potential looming.

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon (right ankle sprain) had his X-Rays come back negative, and he was seen walking around with a crutch after the game.

    Gordon and Vucevic seemed to dodge bullets for their ankles in this one, and it is unclear what sort of timetable Gordon is heading for. We will likely hear more tomorrow, but if he is to miss time Al-Farouq Aminu would see the biggest bump in playing time.

  • Brook Lopez
    C, Milwaukee Bucks

    Brook Lopez had 12 points, five boards, an assist, two steals, two blocks and two threes on Wednesday night.

    The two steals were nice to see, and even after a relatively mundane night, Lopez is still a top-50 player on the season. There's is around where we'd expect him to end the season barring any injuries.

  • Nikola Vucevic
    C, Orlando Magic

    X-Rays came back negative for Nikola Vucevic (sprained right ankle), but he left the locker room wearing a boot and using a crutch.

    A bit of good news and bad news for Vucevic, as he avoided serious injury but it also appears that he's heading towards time on the sidelines. Khem Birch got the start in his place to start the second half, but he really only has appeal as a blocks and boards specialist in deep-leagues.

  • Donte DiVincenzo
    SG, Milwaukee Bucks

    Donte DiVencenzo put together a respectable line on Wednesday, ending with 11 points, five boards, three assists, two steals and a couple of 3-pointers.

    DiVencenzo has strung together a few serviceable games in a row now. He is worth a look for steals and threes in deep leagues or to stream while Khris Middleton (left thigh contusion) is sidelined.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal continued to feast in Wednesday night's 138-132 win over the Spurs, racking up 33 points on 14-of-24 shooting, four boards, four assists and sinking three from deep.

    Beal is starting to show that he is worthy of the early round pick he was taken at. With the Wizards not having many other options, Beal will be this team's go-to guy on a nightly basis.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant turned in a middling 11 points, five rebounds, but set a season-high in assists with six on Wednesday night.

    Bryant had a pretty average night, but seeing the uptick in assists was a nice addition for fantasy owners. He's currently a top-50 player and will likely flirt with that mark for the season.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Julius Randle had a brief reprieve to his poor shooting in his previous game, but was back to the usual in Wednesday's loss, scoring 17 points (5-of-13 shooting), eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and two triples in 36 minutes.

    Randle has been one of the fantasy season's worst picks with his high-volume, low shooting numbers, and until he turns that around he will keep himself outside of being usuable in standard leagues.

  • Rui Hachimura
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Rui Hachimura put in a solid effort, ending Wednesday night's contest with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting, seven boards and two assists.

    Hachimura has been able to score and rebound with nice a field goal percentage, but that's about it. Until he adds another dimension to his game, he'll hover at late-round value. Davis Bertans, on the other hand, came off the bench adding 21 points, five boards, four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers. Bertans is just inside top-100 value on the season.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina scored 17 points but added little else in Wednesday's 104-109 loss to the 76ers, adding one rebound, one block and two triples in 33 minutes.

    Ntilikina has the starting job all to himself with Elfrid Payton (right hamstring) out, but has shown time and time again that he doesn't have the consistancy, nor the stat set, to be worth a roster spot in most settings.
