• Rajon Rondo
    G, New Orleans Pelicans

    Rajon Rondo said, "We'll see how it goes," when asked about returning to the Pelicans in 2018.

    Rondo also added, "I love this group of guys. I love playing for Alvin Gentry, this group of guys is special." Every player on the roster has raved about Rondo's leadership and unselfishness this season. The floor general also brought his best game for the postseason averaging 10.3 points and 12.2 assists per game, leading the team to an upset victory over the Blazers in round one. The off-season will be an interesting one for the Pelicans as both DeMarcus Cousins and Rondo are unrestricted free agents. Whether or not they can re-sign the pass first point guard will depend on if they resign Cousins and for how much. Cousins is coming off a torn Achilles, which especially for a big man, may prevent him from being the same player he was before.

Fantasy News

  • Paul George
    SF, Los Angeles Clippers

    Paul George had a quiet Wednesday night by his standards but still fills the stat sheet, ending with 13 points, five boards, three assists, a steal, a block and two 3's.

    George is a first-round talent on a per-game basis this year. His health is looking good and he should be able to shoulder a lot of the load for fantasy teams this year.

  • Terrence Ross
    SG, Orlando Magic

    Terrence Ross was off his game on Wednesday and was limited to scoring four points on 2-of-11 shooting with one rebound, one assist and three steals.

    Ouch. Ross was on a bit of a heater prior to this one, so the sting is real. That said, he's been trending up so just consider this a hiccup thanks to a tough matchup against one of the best teams in the league.

  • Jaylen Brown
    SG, Boston Celtics

    Jaylen Brown dropped 18 points (7-for-12 shooting), eight rebounds, eight assists, two triples and one steal in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

    Brown continues to show no signs of slowing down since the return of Gordon Hayward, who actually left this game. Brown seems like he's in a groove right now and should continue to produce.

  • Ivica Zubac
    C, Los Angeles Clippers

    Ivica got the start but was limited to seven points, contributing in other ways with eight rebounds, an assist, a steal and two blocks on Wednesday.

    Zubac only saw 16 minutes of action but made the most of it in the counting categories. He ceded his minutes to Montrezl Harrell who had 10 points, six rebounds and four assists. Patrick Patterson also chipped in with 11 points and seven rebounds. Harrell is the one to own here, even if he is coming off the bench.

  • D.J. Augustin
    PG, Orlando Magic

    D.J. Augustin started on Wednesday for an ill Markelle Fultz but was a virtual non-factor, mustering just two points, three rebounds and two assists.

    Augustin has taken a massive hit this season with the rise to viability of Fultz. Not only has he ceded the starting PG job, but Augustin has also struggled to maintain consideration in 16-team leagues or deeper.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    Jayson Tatum didn't have his shot going (4-for-13 shooting) on Wednesday but stayed aggressive attacking the basket (6-for-6 free throws) scoring 16 points to go along with six rebounds, three assists, two triples and two steals.

    Tatum had been shooting pretty efficiently recently so it's not a surprise to see that fall off a bit. It's encouraging to see him put up a productive line even on the off night.

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love had a strong outing in Wednesday's 116-110 loss to the Rockets, finishing with 17 points, 11 boards, two assists, a steal and a block on 8-of-14 shooting.

    When Love plays, you can count on mid-round value from him. He is currently sitting as a top-70 player this season. A trade may result in Love playing in more games down the stretch, as well.

  • Mikal Bridges
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Mikal Bridges (left finger sprain) will play on Wednesday after being listed as probable.

    Hopefully Bridges picks up where he left off, which was rounding into a solid 3-and-D contributor.

  • Collin Sexton
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Collin Sexton ended his Wednesday night with 18 points, a rebound and a steal on 8-of-14 shooting.

    Other than the scoring, Sexton doesn't bring much to the table. He's sitting just instead the top-200 now and is only a streaming candidate in standard league at this point.

  • Cameron Johnson
    SF, Phoenix Suns

    Cam Johnson (left hip soreness) will play on Wednesday against the Grizzlies after being listed as probable.

    Johnson is a decent look if you need some supplemental three-pointers. It will be interesting to see how his return affects the minutes for Mikal Bridges in the Suns rotation.
