Myles Turner (sore neck) has been listed as doubtful for Friday’s game versus the Blazers, according to the Pacers.
It seems that the injury occurred during Wednesday’s opener against the Nets, in which Turner logged 34 minutes. If Turner sits, look for Domantas Sabonis and Al Jefferson to pick up the some of the slack and minutes at center.
February 22, 2019, 1:23 amKlay Thompson - G - Golden State Warriors
Klay Thompson scored 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting with three 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and a steal on Thursday.
Thompson was a bit icy from deep from his standards but the Warriors got enough firepower from their main two superstars to pull through with a win.
February 22, 2019, 1:22 amDraymond Green - F - Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green logged 34 minutes on Thursday and scored 12 points on 3-of-6 shooting with six rebounds, eight assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Green came through for the Warriors at the end of this game and it was his best shooting display from deep in quite some time. He's gaining confidence (not like he needed anymore) and was integral for the Warriors in the fourth quarter as they barely pulled out a win against a tough Kings team.
February 22, 2019, 1:20 amMarvin Bagley III - F - Sacramento Kings
Marvin Bagley went bananas on Thursday, scoring 28 points on 8-of-19 shooting with 14 rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Bagley feasted on the Warriors and brought his high energy on both ends of the floor. The Warriors looked like they had no answer for the booming rookie and his stock has been trending upwards for quite some time now.
February 22, 2019, 1:18 amNemanja Bjelica - F - Sacramento Kings
Nemanja Bjelica received a DNP-CD against the Warriors on Thursday.
Bjelica is now the odd man out with Bogdan Bogdanovic starting and Harrison Barnes entering the fray as well. It doesn't help that Marvin Bagley has been going bonkers and as of now Bjelica is waiver wire fodder.
February 22, 2019, 1:17 amBogdan Bogdanovic - G - Sacramento Kings
Bogdan Bogdanovic started on Thursday and scored 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with a 3-pointer, three rebounds, six assists and two steals.
Bogdanovic finally drew the start and it's about time the Kings started their best forward. He and De'Aaron Fox are both playmakers and it's good to see them both handing out enough dimes to keep their owners satisfied.
February 22, 2019, 1:15 amBuddy Hield - G - Sacramento Kings
Buddy Hield scored 19 points on 8-of-19 shooting with two triples, seven boards, two dimes and a swat on Thursday against the Warriors.
Hield went 2-for-8 from deep but still found a way to get up to his scoring average for the season. Him and De'Aaron Fox (18 points on 6-of-14 shooting with three rebounds, eight assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers) played against the backcourt they're hoping to be in the next few years but as tonight showed, they're still a couple steps behind.
February 22, 2019, 1:13 amHarrison Barnes - F - Sacramento Kings
Harrison Barnes scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds, an assist and a 3-pointer on Thursday.
Barnes had an empty scoring line and the volume is going to be lowered on the Kings. He's joining a team with more mouths to feed than the Mavs so his value is going to take a dip.
February 21, 2019, 10:42 pmGiannis Antetokounmpo - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks in their 98-97 win on Thursday against the Celtics with 30 points on 11-of-19 shooting while adding 13 rebounds, six assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer.
Antetokuonmpo started off the game slow and neither team could buy a bucket in the first quarter, but he was able to finish the game strong and lead his team to another win. While other players are tearing up the box scores in streaks, the Freak has consistently carried the Bucks to the best record in the league with averages of 27.2 points, 12.7 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks on .581 shooting. If we're going by the best player on the best team then Antetokounmpo is without a doubt the MVP.
February 21, 2019, 10:41 pmMalcolm Brogdon - G - Milwaukee Bucks
Malcolm Brogdon continued chugging along with 15 points, six boards and four assists against the Celtics on Thursday.
Brogdon is consistent and consistently good for fantasy owners. His workman-like numbers night in and night out have put him on the fringes of the top-50 which was not really in the picture at the start of the year. Keep him in your lineups. This should be a smooth ride.
February 21, 2019, 10:38 pmNikola Mirotic - F - Milwaukee Bucks
Nikola Mirotic made his Bucks debut on Thursday and scored eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with two 3-pointers and three rebounds.
Mirotic only logged 14 minutes and it was his first game in action with a new team after missing the prior 11 contests. He's still a bit rusty and needs to get his conditioning back to speed, but the fact that he launched six shots from deep is great and the fit is perfect for him to continue his mid-round value. If there's a panicking owner you can sneak a buy-low and reap the rewards come playoff time.
