Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) is listed as doubtful to play on Sunday against the Raptors.
As we’ve been speculating, Porzingis may have already played his last game of his rookie season. If you haven’t moved on yet, now is the time to do so. With one game remaining for the Knicks following tonight’s game, he isn’t worth owning anymore.
February 23, 2020, 11:32 pmCJ McCollumSG, Portland Trail Blazers
C.J. McCollum set season-highs with 41 points, nine rebounds and 12 assists in a win over the Pistons on Sunday.
McCollum shot 15-of-30 from the field and knocked down six triples. McCollum actually set a career-high with 12 assists as he found ways to get his teammates involved in this one. His value gets boosted when Damian Lillard is out, but he remains a middle-round value for the remainder of the season.
February 23, 2020, 11:27 pmCarmelo AnthonyPF, Portland Trail Blazers
Carmelo Anthony put up a season-high 32 points on 11-of-16 shooting in a 107-104 win over the Pistons on Sunday.
Anthony brought his efficiency back up after his recent struggles from the field, which helped the Blazers pull out a close victory. Trevor Ariza, who had been trending up as of late, put up just two points on 1-of-4 shooting in 36 minutes. Ariza should bring top-100 value, while Anthony remains a late-round option for standard leagues.
February 23, 2020, 11:17 pmTerrance FergusonSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Terrance Ferguson exited the game early with back stiffness as the Thunder beat the Spurs on Sunday.
Ferguson had zero points, one rebound, one assist and one block on 0-of-2 shooting in 10 minutes. We should receive an update on the extent of his injury in the coming days.
February 23, 2020, 11:08 pmAndrew WigginsSF, Golden State Warriors
Andrew Wiggins had an awful shooting performance as he went 3-of-16 from the field for eight points against the Pelicans on Sunday, but salvaged this line to a degree with 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal.
Wiggins has been surprisingly versatile with the Warriors thus far, and before tonight he had been shooting well as the number one offensive option. If Wiggins can continue to be a decent contributor in the steals and blocks department he will be a useful fantasy option in standard leagues. Once Stephen Curry takes the court Wiggins' offensive contributions are going to take a hit, and he will need to diversify his fantasy profile.
February 23, 2020, 11:00 pmJordan PoolePG, Golden State Warriors
Jordan Poole kept up his momentum while facing the Pelicans on Sunday, tallying 19 points, five assists, four rebounds and one 3-pointer.
Poole is worth a move in deeper formats as he has emerged with a reliable role for the Warriors lately. We've seen the Warriors play roulette with there roster all season though, Poole's turn in the spotlight is likely to end sooner than later. If you are looking for a hot flyer he is worth a pickup until Stephen Curry returns.
February 23, 2020, 10:55 pmJuan Toscano-AndersonPF, Golden State Warriors
Juan Toscano-Anderson had a night to remember against the Pelicans on Sunday, dropping 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers, two blocks and one steal.
The absence of Marquese Chriss (left calf) gave Toscano-Anderson the runway he needed to go off. It's hard to imagine JTA becoming a regular piece for the Warriors, who were also without Draymond Green, and Stephen Curry is supposed to return before the season is all said and done as well. Keep him in mind while Chriss is out, but Toscano-Anderson is not a pickup yet.
February 23, 2020, 10:50 pmDamion LeeSG, Golden State Warriors
Damion Lee's shooting came around on Sunday while facing the Pelicans, going 9-of-15 from the field for 22 points, four 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal.
Lee was strong over the course of his 35 minutes. He is an inconsistent performer so don't assume he is going to ride this to the finish line in your league, but enjoy the stats while he is delivering them. Ky Bowman was not too shabby either, going for 15 points, seven assists, six rebounds, three steals and one block over the course of 32 minutes. Bowman's role has been streaky, and he's more of a deep league streamer that could be the hot hand on any given night for the Warriors.
February 23, 2020, 10:49 pmNicolo MelliPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Nicolo Melli scored 20 points and knocked down a career-high six triples in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Melli tied his career-high in scoring and shot 7-of-8 from the field. He added five rebounds, one assist and one block to the box score. He can be used as a deep-league shooting specialist if you are short on triples.
February 23, 2020, 10:46 pmJrue HolidayPG, New Orleans Pelicans
Jrue Holiday put up 23 points with 15 dimes in a team-high 38 minutes of action in a 115-101 win over the Warriors on Sunday.
Holiday shot 10-of-17 from the field and added seven rebounds and three triples to the box score. He is locked in as a top-30 option for the rest of the season.
February 23, 2020, 10:43 pmZion WilliamsonPF, New Orleans Pelicans
Zion Williamson went off against the Warriors on Sunday with 28 points and seven rebounds in 33 minutes of action.
Williamson shot 13-of-20 from the field and added two assists and one block to the stat sheet. The only negative aspect of his performance was his free-throw shooting as he went just 1-of-6 from the stripe. Williamson is a middle-round option with early-round upside for anyone that is punting free throws.
