• Rawle Alkins
    G, Toronto Raptors

    Updating a previous item, the Raptors have signed Rawle Alkins to an Exhibit 10 deal.

    Alkins was previously reported to have signed a "training camp deal" but now we have more specifics. He'll be invited to camp and could earn up to $50,000 in guaranteed money while the Raptors can convert his deal to a two-way if he ends up making the G-League team. It was a small upset to see Alkins go undrafted, but the Raptors will be happy to take a chance on his athleticism and defensive prowess on the perimeter even if his shooting is a work in progress.

  • Chris Paul
    PG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Chris Paul absolutely took control of the game in the fourth quarter en route to 29 points (11-for-17 shooting), four triples, four rebounds and two assists as the Thunder beat the Nuggets 113-101.

    Paul continues to be dynamite in crunch time this season as he hit big shot after big shot in the fourth quarter to hold off any comeback attempts by Jokic and the Nuggets. CP3 has been healthy and productive all season, one of the best stories of fantasy hoops in 2020.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby started Friday's game vs. the Suns and scored 12 points, grabbed five rebound and blocked four shots in 38 minutes.

    Anunoby led the Raptors in minutes on Friday and this was a good showing for the young forward out of Indiana. However, he has been far too inconsistent to trust in 12-team leagues this season. If he can block shots like he did on Friday his value could see a nice little boost.

  • Steven Adams
    C, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams had a great game on Friday, with 19 points (7-for-14 shooting), 17 rebounds, four steals, two blocks and two assists across 32 minutes.

    Adams turned in some of his trademark rebounding in this one, while chipping in some defensive stats as well. Adams is starting to heat up a bit but doesn't have the highest ceiling and will typically hurt you in free throws as well, though he went 5-for-6 tonight.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
    SG, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander notched 11 points (4-for-14 shooting), nine rebounds, nine assists and a block in Friday's win over the Nuggets.

    SGA did some good things in this one despite struggling with his shot. He mostly fed off Chris Paul who dominated the end of the game for the Thunder. Danilo Gallinari finished with 15 points (4-for-14 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, two triples and one seal in 32 minutes.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry double-doubled on Friday vs. the Suns, putting up 13 points, 10 assists and adding five rebounds.

    Lowry also had a team-high six turnovers and was not all that effective shooting the ball. This was not one of his better games, but Lowry has maintained his mid-round fantasy value all season. With the Raptors playing increasingly better as the season progresses and looking at a home series in the first round of the playoffs, Lowry should finish very strong, barring injury

  • Nikola Jokic
    C, Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic didn't miss much in Friday's 101-113 loss to the Thunder, finishing with 32 points (12-for-15 shooting), seven rebounds, five assists, one triple, one steal and one block.

    The longer the season goes on the better Jokic tends to get and this season has been no different. The Serbian big man seems to be coming into his own as a scorer this season which will only improve his already stellar fantasy game.

  • Jamal Murray
    PG, Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray scored 21 points (8-for-16 shooting), six rebounds, four assists, one triple, one steal and one block on Friday.

    Murray slipped and looked like he might have tweaked his groin at one point in this game but he finished with no apparent issues. Keep an eye on any news that may come out about this as time goes on, but he's been heating up lately and should remain a confident play down the stretch.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet finished Friday's game against the Suns with 14 points, seven assists and seven rebounds.

    He actually struggled from behind the arc on Friday, going 2-for-7, but fantasy owners do not need to be concerned. FVV has mastered his current role for the defending-champion Raptors and is showing no signs of slowing down. He belongs in starting lineups across the board.

  • Will Barton
    SG, Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton contributed 16 points (6-for-12 shooting), nine rebounds, five assists, two triples and a steal in 32 minutes on Friday.

    Barton's status coming into this game was uncertain but he looked no worse for the wear with a very strong fantasy line. The 32 minutes was also good to see as he looked healthy and productive. Keep him in your lineups as long as he's active.

  • Dario Saric
    PF, Phoenix Suns

    Dario Saric (left ankle) scored eight points and added five rebounds and three assists in the Suns' road loss to the Raptors on Friday.

    He got double the number of minutes that fellow Suns front court member Aron Baynes got in his return from injury tonight, so that is a good sign. If Saric can continue to receive 20 or so minutes per game, he is likely to maintain value the rest of the way. There's a good shot he is on the waiver wire unless you are in a deeper league and he is worth monitoring.
