February 21, 2019, 1:53 pmMyles Turner - F/C - Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner (bruised left hip) is questionable ahead of Friday's game against the Pelicans.
Turner recently shed his mask, but is now dealing with a new injury. The big man is returning second-round value in a real breakout season and hopefully this injury is minor. If he's forced to sit, Domantas Sabonis and Kyle O'Quinn will split the minutes at center.
March 21, 2019, 9:51 pmMalik Monk - G - Charlotte Hornets
Malik Monk logged 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday and scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shoting while adding four rebounds and four 3-pointers.
Monk entered the rotation on Thursday and played much better than Jeremy Lamb (28 minutes, 13 points on 6-of-20 shooting with 10 rebounds and an assist) but we've seen this occurrence before. Unless you're desperate for triples, Monk isn't an add in standard leagues.
March 21, 2019, 9:51 pmPaul Millsap - F - Denver Nuggets
Paul Millsap delivered 15 points (6-of-8 from the field), six rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers in Thursday's win over the Wizards.
Millsap is rolling and was part of a very balanced attack tonight, though he was the only Denver starter to finish as a positive plus-minus player tonight as the bench stepped up big. The Sapper looks to have found his old form for the final weeks of the season and is going to carry some teams to fantasy titles if he can keep it up for about 10 more days. Nikola Jokic had a pedestrian game by his standards with 15 points, six rebounds, 11 assists and two triples.
March 21, 2019, 9:48 pmFrank Kaminsky - F/C - Charlotte Hornets
Frank Kaminsky scored two points on 0-of-6 shooting while adding a rebound, two assists and two blocks on Thursday.
Kaminksy only logged eight minutes and coach Borrego was fiddling around with his rotations tonight which means a lot of Hornets players aren't safe. Even though there's a back-to-back set coming up, Kaminsky hasn't done anything to prove to us that he'd be a reliable pickup for those games.
March 21, 2019, 9:47 pmNicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets
Nicolas Batum came off the bench on Thursday and scored two points on 1-of-5 shooting while adding four rebounds and a block.
Batum came off the bench, but logged 23 minutes compared to Dwyane Bacon's 19 which is a good thing for Batum owners. He didn't have his shot going tonight, but neither did Bacon so owners have hope for Batum to make up for lost ground in the next two games this week.
March 21, 2019, 9:46 pmTorrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets
Torrey Craig played exceptionally well in Thursday's win over the Wizards, dropping 15 points on 6-of-11 from the field to go with four assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes of action.
Craig also put the clamps on Bradley Beal in the fourth quarter, frustrating the All-Star into a mostly-quiet frame. He's the Nuggets' defensive stopper but got a nice slice of the offensive pie on a night when four players tied for the team-high with 15 points and eight of nine Nuggets hit the 10-point mark. He's a deep-league threat for cash counters but most fantasy owners can leave Craig on the wire despite the strong game tonight.
March 21, 2019, 9:46 pmDwayne Bacon - G/F - Charlotte Hornets
Dwyane Bacon started on Thursday and scored four points on 1-of-8 shooting while chipping in five rebounds, five assists and a steal.
Bacon started over Nicolas Batum but he only logged 19 minutes so the promotion was only in name. He can be left on wires.
March 21, 2019, 9:45 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges notched his first career double-double against the Wolves on Thursday with 11 points and 12 rebounds while adding four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Bridges went 5-for-8 from the floor and logged 30 minutes which was the second highest on the team only behind Kemba Walker. He's still a bit unreliable due to the fact that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) could return by Saturday's game which would end Bridges' run.
March 21, 2019, 9:43 pmGary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets
Gary Harris took a team-high 15 shot attempts on Thursday night but only hit six of them, posting 15 points with five rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Harris' fantasy value is capped if he's not hitting his shots, and he simply hasn't gotten into any rhythm this season between his injuries and the emergence of Denver's younger bench players. he did tie for the team lead in scoring tonight but it'd be surprising if he finished the season with anything other than a late-round stretch. Malik Beasley chipped in 10 points, two threes and a steal on 4-of-9 from the field in 21 minutes off the pine.
March 21, 2019, 9:43 pmJosh Okogie - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Josh Okogie netted 10 points on 5-of-11 shooting while adding three rebounds, two assists and two blocks against the Hornets on Thursday.
This is the third consecutive game for Okogie playing at least 30 minutes and also his third consecutive game scoring in double-figures. He's not the most optimal streamer due to his inconsistencies with peripheral stats and the fact that the Wolves still have high usage guys on the floor.
March 21, 2019, 9:43 pmTyus Jones - G - Minnesota Timberwolves
Tyus Jones continued his strong play on Thursday with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting while handing out seven assists to go with two rebounds, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Jones is a guy that should be owned in all leagues right now as Derrick Rose (left elbow) and Jeff Teague (left foot) have been shut down for the year. The shooting numbers won't be pretty and there are plenty of owners who won't put up with it, but the steals and assists are too good to leave on the wire and Jones is a guy who can tilt a matchup in your favor.
