• Jalen Brunson
    G, Dallas Mavericks

    The Dallas Mavericks have selected Jalen Brunson with pick No. 33 in the NBA Draft.

    Brunson is an extremely accomplished point guard that has won at every level he's played at. He's a high class and hard working leader that will likely stick around in the league for years to come. With that being said, it will be very hard for him to come across playing time as a rookie with Dallas already having Dennis Smith Jr. and having already selected Luka Doncic. Brunson is not an elite athlete and has a bit of an old school game, so he will most likely not be on fantasy radars early on in his career.

  • Ish Smith
    PG, Washington Wizards

    Ish Smith shot poorly in Friday's loss to the Cavs, going 2-for-12 from the field to finish with five points, five rebounds, six assists, one trey and two steals in 30 minutes.

    The minutes are still there for Smith, which is a good thing. Shabazz Napier played just 18 minutes and posted eight points (3-of-8 shooting), two 3s, one rebound, four assists and one steal. Smith, despite his struggles, remains the PG to own out of Washington with top-115 value over the last month.

  • Luka Doncic
    PG-SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Luka Doncic had it going again on Friday night with 33 points (10-for-21 shooting), 10 rebounds, eight assists, four triples, one steal and one block across 34 minutes as the Mavs beat the Magic 122-106.

    This Doncic performance was especially sweet because Kristaps Porzingis also dominated. The pair seems to be mastering their chemistry and learning how to make each other better. Buckle up for a fun second half in Dallas.

  • Kristaps Porzingis
    PF-C, Dallas Mavericks

    Kristaps Porzingis posted a monster line on Friday night, finishing with 24 points (8-for-16 shooting), 10 rebounds, five assists, five blocks and four triples as the Mavs topped the Magic.

    It's starting to look like a trend that both Porzingis and Luka Doncic can be productive at the same time in Dallas, which is a scary thought for the rest of the NBA. Nine combined threes and blocks is definitely on the higher end of outcomes for Porzingis, but is exactly the type of skillset that had him as a top-25 player prior to his injury.

  • Rui Hachimura
    PF, Washington Wizards

    Rui Hachimura was a solid performer for the Wizards on Friday, chipping in 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting, plus seven rebounds, one triple, three dimes and two steals.

    Hachimura has been playing well as of late and figures to have a strong finish this season as the team's second scoring option behind Bradley Beal. We like the trey, boards and steals tonight and as long as he keeps those peripherals going a top-120 finish in 2019-20 might be a realistic expectation

  • Tim Hardaway Jr.
    SF, Dallas Mavericks

    Tim Hardaway Jr. posted 16 points (5-for-9 shooting), six rebounds and three triples across 33 minutes on Friday.

    At full strength, Hardaway's upside is somewhat limited but still provides consistent value as a three-point streamer. He may not be for everyone, but certainly has a role on three-point needy squads.

  • Maxi Kleber
    PF, Dallas Mavericks

    Maxi Kleber fininshed Friday's win over the Magic with 26 points (10-for-13 shooting), three rebounds, three triples, an assist and a block.

    Kleber was feeling it on Friday night, as he found all the open spots on the floor and only missed three shots. Kleber is part of a deep rotation in Dallas but is worth a look in deeper leagues.

  • Thomas Bryant
    C, Washington Wizards

    Thomas Bryant (sore right foot) returned to action on Friday and was able to see 16 minutes off the bench, producing eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with five rebounds and two blocks.

    Bryant missed both shot attempts from the line which dampened his otherwise encouraging first game back since experiencing a setback with the stress reaction in his right foot. He's going to be brought along slowly but assuming his progression goes without delay this time around, Bryant can flirt with top-30 value if he gets minutes in the high 20s to low 30s.

  • Nikola Vucevic
    C, Orlando Magic

    Nikola Vucevic cruised with 27 points (12-for-27 shooting), 12 rebounds, four steals, one triple, one assists and a a block as the Magic fell 106-122 to the Mavs.

    Vucevic did all he could to keep his team in it but ultimately fell short. The Magic are going for a playoff spot and figure to feature Vucevic prominently the rest of the way.

  • Evan Fournier
    SF, Orlando Magic

    Evan Fournier exploded for 28 points (10-for-19 shooting), five triples, two rebounds and two steals in Friday's loss.

    With the big shooting performance, Fournier passed up Hedo Turkoglu to move to fourth on the Magic's career three-pointers list with 795. Fournier should continue to provide strong threes and scoring the rest of the season.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore back) left Friday's game against the Knicks with concerns over his back.

    This is not good news. Oladipo has not looked particularly healthy since returning from injury in late January. That injury, however, was to his right knee, so the news about his back is not a welcome sight. An update should be provided after the game.
