March 5, 2019, 11:27 pmMarc Gasol - C - Toronto Raptors
Marc Gasol moved back to the bench on Tuesday night and struggled, delivering just eight points and one rebound in 18 minutes of action.
Gasol also went minus-30 in this one, though it's tough to single him out since Toronto's entire bench was useless tonight. They combined for 20 points — Gerald Green had 18 on his own for the Rockets. Gasol will be better than this moving forward, though he might be prone to duds with the Raptors trying to mix and match their deep roster to maximize everyone's potential.
March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmPascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors
Pascal Siakam scored 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting while adding eight rebounds, five assists, a block and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Siakam's overall game is a bit underrated because of how great he is in transition. Kawhi Leonard (load management) has missed a quarter of the season and Siakam always steps up when Leonard rests. He's averaging 4.0 assists over the past month and is a guy who could eventually average a triple-one. There's a lot to be excited about in Toronto.
March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmMitchell Robinson - C - New York Knicks
Mitchell Robinson scored zero points with five rebounds and three blocks on Monday.
With his three blocks tonight, Robinson has now tied Patrick Ewing for the Knicks' franchise rookie record for consecutive games with a block. He's swatted a shot in 28 consecutive games and even though he fouled out and his minutes have been low, you have to hang onto him because of his insane per-minute production. On the year he's averaging 2.4 blocks in only 18.9 minutes.

March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmAllonzo Trier - G - New York Knicks
Allonzo Trier scored 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer on Monday.
He scored more tonight than his previous three games combined which should calm down any overreaction to tonight. Trier is a solid isolation player and coach Fizdale has shown a liking to his game which means he's on the radar for owners in need of points and treys, but all of the Knicks wings are risky plays due to coach Fizdale's maddening rotations.
March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmDeAndre Jordan - C - New York Knicks
DeAndre Jordan only logged 20 minutes on Monday, scoring six points with six rebounds, three assists and a block.
He went 0-for-2 from the floor, but 6-for-6 at the line which is something no one would have predicted. Jordan's minutes cratered tonight because of the game turning into a blowout and coach Fizdale playing everyone on the active roster. He's worth holding onto for now as the Knicks have three more games, but the lines will be inconsistent.
March 18, 2019, 9:54 pmMario Hezonja - F - New York Knicks
Mario Hezonja scored eight points on 3-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and two steals on Monday.
Hezonja started again on Monday, but he didn't do much with the opportunity. The Knicks got blasted in this game and even though he's a hot name, his teammates eat up a ton of usage and coach Fizdale is reluctant to let him loose which makes it hard for him to really establish value.
March 18, 2019, 9:47 pmIsaiah Thomas - G - Denver Nuggets
Isaiah Thomas got to play seven minutes on Monday in Boston, though the only stats he compiled were two assists.
It was a lovefest before the game with a tribute video and standing ovation for one of Boston's favorites. Thomas will likely be back out of the rotation going forward.
March 18, 2019, 9:42 pmCedi Osman - F - Cleveland Cavaliers
Cedi Osman turned in another solid performance in Monday's win over the Pistons, posting 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, six dimes, two 3s and one steal in 38 minutes.
Osman has struggled with consistency this season but has thankfully been a reliable source of production so far down the stretch. Keep him slotted in your active lineups.
March 18, 2019, 9:39 pmCollin Sexton - G - Cleveland Cavaliers
Collin Sexton caught fire in Monday's 126-119 win over the Pistons, hitting 5-of-6 shots from deep en route to his team-high 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting.
He added two rebounds, one assist and two steals to the box score tonight. Sexton has been blossoming while the season has been winding down. He's been a top-40 play in 9-cat over the last week, a good sign of things to come from the Cavs' rookie. Jordan Clarkson added 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting with two rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes off the bench.
March 18, 2019, 9:35 pmJoe Ingles - F - Utah Jazz
Joe Ingles scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting while chipping in three rebounds, four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Ingles carried the Jazz on offense in the beginning of the game while Donovan Mitchell struggled and he had a nasty triple-threat move which almost detached Bradley Beal from his ankles. He's averaging 7.3 assists over the past month and the shooting was bound to correct itself after a slow week.
March 18, 2019, 9:33 pmDavid Nwaba - G - Cleveland Cavaliers
David Nwaba started on Monday for a resting Kevin Love and put up a reasonable line with 13 points (5-of-6 shooting), six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in a team-high 40 minutes.
Nwaba scored a total of 11 points in his last three games combined, but his high usage and minutes is an encouraging sign as far as his down-the-stretch value is concerned. He's worth streaming when Kevin Love gets his days off.
