• Marvin Williams tallied 13 points, nine rebounds and one 3-pointer in the Hornets’ loss to the Celtics on Wednesday night.

    Marvin has been borderline top-100 in 9-cat because of his solid field goal percentage and lack of turnovers. His rebounding appears to be experiencing an uptick though thanks to nine or more boards in two of the Hornets’ last three. Williams is a nice consistent option in standard leagues.

  • Jonas Valanciunas
    C, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jonas Valanciunas double-doubled on Wednesday with 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting and 10 boards in a 140-112 blowout loss to the Rockets.

    Valanciunas bounced back after being held to five points and seven rebounds on Monday. Valanciunas will have to step up for the Grizzlies with Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke out of the lineup. Valanciunas is a top-60 player on the season in only 25.8 minutes per game and should finish the season in that range with a boost in the short term.

  • DeMar DeRozan
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    DeMar DeRozan did his best to lead the the Spurs in Wednesday's 109-103 loss to the Mavs, ending the contest with 27 points (9-15 FG, 0-1 3PT, 9-9 FT), eight rebounds, nine assists and one steal.

    DeRozan continues to perform at a high-level when he's on the court, and any signs of back spasms seem to have disappeared. DeRozan has been a top-40 player on the season and has put up top-20 numbers over the last two weeks.

  • Kyle Anderson
    SF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Kyle Anderson scored seven points with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 18 minutes on Wednesday.

    Anderson has the ability to post across-the-board production, but isn't great in any category outside of steals. He is a top-100 player over the past two weeks and will have a boost in value while Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke are sidelined. He can be added in 14-team leagues as a low-upside steals specialist until the Grizzlies get healthy.

  • Marco Belinelli
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    Marco Belinelli technically fills the stat sheet on Wednesday by collecting 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-6 3PT), eight rebounds, and punching in just one assist, steal, block and turnover.

    With LaMarcus Aldridge sitting this one out, Belinelli had some room to play off the bench and contributed from behind the arc and on the glass. Despite tonight's performance, he is someone that can be left on waivers in standard leagues.

  • Bam Adebayo
    C, Miami Heat

    Even though he suffered an ankle sprain on Monday, Bam Adebayo did not look too slowed on Wednesday as he flirted with a triple-double, recording 22 points (6-of-13 FGs, 10-of-15 FTs), 10 rebounds, seven assists and two blocks in 33 minutes.

    Bam's line was soured by his .667 shooting from the line and his four turnovers. However, you should train your eyes on those minutes and his actual production. Bam owners should feel confident to keep slotted in as usual in their lineups.

  • De'Anthony Melton
    PG, Memphis Grizzlies

    De'Anthony Melton started on Wednesday and scored nine points with seven boards, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

    Melton got the start in a small-ball lineup vs. the Rockets with Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke sidelined. Melton is worth holding in standard leagues as a steals-specialist with upside. He should be a top-100 player in 26 minutes per game given his strong per-minute production. He will have to fight Josh Jackson (five points and five rebounds in 23 minutes on Wednesday) for playing time, but it looks like he has the inside track and is the safer option over Jackson.

  • Lonnie Walker IV
    SG, San Antonio Spurs

    Lonnie Walker IV made the most of his start on Wednesday night, finding himself with 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-2 3PT), three rebounds, two assists and three blocks at the end of the contest.

    Walker had a respectable night while filling in for LaMarcus Aldridge. While he likely isn't someone of interest outside of the deepest leagues, he has interesting potential when he sees minutes. It's worth noting he has picked up four blocks over his last two games from the guard position.

  • Kelly Olynyk
    C, Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk saw just 16 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, but that didn't stop him from putting up a solid effort with 11 points on perfect 4-for-4 shooting from the field (3-of-3 from deep).

    Olynyk filled the stat sheet with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block. He's been worth owning in standard leagues but be sure to give him a short leash in case his production drops off.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic picked up, yet another, triple-double in his young career, ending with 26 points (10-25 FG, 3-11 3PT), 10 rebounds, 14 assists and one steal, but did turn it over seven times.

    Doncic is a triple-double machine and is limited only by his turnovers and shooting percentages. Tonight was a great example of this as the popcorn stats were there, but it was unfortunately an inefficient night from the floor for the young star. That being said, he is still a top-20 player this year.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier scored a team-high 28 points (11-of-18 from the floor) on Wednesday, adding five assists, three steals and two triples in 35 minutes.

    Fournier is a top-75 player on the season thanks to his contributions in points and threes on strong efficiency. He's been slightly better the past month, posting top-60 value in 9-cat leagues. He should remain inside the top-75 ROS and his teammate Terrence Ross (14 points and three triples in 27 minutes on Wednesday) is another points and threes specialist but doesn't have the ceiling that Fournier does. Ross is on the cusp of top-130 value over the past month and is a fine hold in standard leagues because of his safe role in Orlando.
