February 28, 2019, 9:27 pmTerrence Ross - G/F - Orlando Magic
Terrence Ross was feeling himself on Thursday, scoring 16 points on 5-of-14 shooting while adding four rebounds, five assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.
Ross scored 11 of his points in the final period of the game and did it when the Magic needed him most. He's one of the best scorers on a team that's only 0.5 games out of the eighth seed now so you can expect him to continue to be a solid source of triples and points.
March 23, 2019, 9:01 pmMiles Bridges - F - Charlotte Hornets
Miles Bridges put up 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Celtics, adding seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers to his line in 34 minutes.
He logged 34 minutes this time and was the second highest minutes behind Kemba Walker again. Although, the increased opportunities and minutes is a direct result of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) being out for tonight. The increase in minutes are encouraging but don't expect it to hold up once MKG comes back.
March 23, 2019, 8:56 pmJayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum (back) is being examined by team doctors after sustaining a late fall in tonight's game against the Hornets.
Stay tuned for more updates regarding the severity of this injury that he might have sustained.

Harry Giles (left thigh contusion) will not play tonight in Saturday's game against the Suns.
Marvin Bagley is now back so Giles' upside for the remainder of the season is now limited.

March 23, 2019, 8:50 pmDwayne Bacon - G/F - Charlotte Hornets
Dwayne Bacon started and played 31 minutes in Saturday's win over the Celtics, providing 11 points, five rebounds, three assists, a block and a 3-pointer.
Nic Batum wasn't available in tonight's matchup hence Bacon getting the nod to start on this one and logging more minutes than what he usually gets. Fantasy owners in deep leagues should grab him if he's still on the wire.
March 23, 2019, 8:46 pmKyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics
Kyrie Irving dropped 31 points with seven rebounds, six assists, four threes and two steals in 35 minutes in Saturday's 117-124 loss to the Hornets.
The Celtics lost steam in the fourth quarter which led to the Hornets stealing this game on their home floor. Despite the loss, it doesn't take away the fact that Irving is still a top-10 player this season and fantasy owners should be wary once the team decides he needs to rest in some games before the playoffs starts.
March 23, 2019, 8:41 pmJayson Tatum - F - Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum shot just 5-of-17 from the field for 12 points in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, although he did add six rebounds, four assists, a block and two threes in 37 minutes.
He was able to get his touches tonight with Gordon Hayward out but didn't get to take advantage of it because of the inefficient night. Tatum is currently a top-130 player right now and fantasy owners should take a chance on him to explode if they have a streaming spot open.
March 23, 2019, 8:37 pmMarcus Morris - F - Boston Celtics
Marcus Morris posted 15 points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three threes in Saturday's loss to the Hornets.
Fantasy owners would love to see this type of all-around game every night but the increased minutes was a direct result of Gordon Hayward's (concussion protocol) absence tonight. He's been hovering outside the top-100 and is not a must-own player unless you have a streaming spot open on your roster.
March 23, 2019, 8:33 pmJaylen Brown - F - Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown put up 29 points albeit in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, going 10-of-13 from the field with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers.
The absence of Gordon Hayward (concussion protocol) gave Brown the opportunity to hoist up more shots and be able to put up all-around stat lines like the one he did tonight. He's a good streamer in almost category but don't expect these type of numbers nightly.
March 23, 2019, 8:14 pmPau Gasol - C/F - Milwaukee Bucks
Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) is expected to miss a month of action.
He's not fantasy relevant in any way at this point of the season so this update shouldn't shake up most fantasy teams.

Robert Williams (back contusion) will not return in Saturday's game against the Hornets.
Williams ends the night with two points, three rebounds, one assist and two blocks before heading to the locker room. Stay tuned for more updates regarding the severity of his injury.
