My wife’s favorite store is Ross, as she loves to find a good bargain. I could drop her off, go play some hoops, return, and she’d still be merrily rummaging through the racks. I always clown her, but she does find good deals, so respect. Plus, she enjoys it. I don’t get how she could get so into shopping for clothes, though, but that’s exactly what she says when I spend countless hours on fantasy. We all have our thing. Anyways, last night I asked my wife, “Can you believe that Terrence Ross has been a top 40 player over the past seven games, and he’s only owned in 57% of leagues? What a bargain!” As you can well imagine, no sexy time for me, but at least I derived some satisfaction from the performance Ross exhibited last night.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
32 5 1 0 0 1 6/13 13/23 0

In 31 minutes. Despite coming off the bench, over the last seven games, Ross has been averaging 29.4 minutes, 20.3 points, 3.9 tres, 4.9 boards, and 1. He’s had a usage rate of 26 and been jacking up 17 shots per game! The dimes are a paltry 1.3, but what do you expect? Shooters shoot. In fact, back in 2013, Ross produced a 51-burger, so he’s always had the ability to score. Now, there will be bouts of inconsistency, especially from a fantasy persepective, as he is a jump shooter (only 10.6% of his shots come from within 10 feet of the basket) who derives most of his value from scoring. Ross has scored in single digits 12 times this season. With that said, he does get the minutes, shot attempts, and opportunities to produce. And he’s cheap! Nothing beats a good bargain.

Here’s what else I saw last night:

Nikola Vucevic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 10 3 0 2 1 1/2 9/16 2/2

Wake me up when he doesn’t have a good game. Looking at his career-arc, it’s refreshing to see hard work quantified, as you can see when he started expanding his range to beyond the arc and how long it took to become more than proficient. Also, looking at the assist rate gives a look at the increased awareness and IQ, which doesn’t happen by osmosis.

Jonathan Isaac

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
9 6 2 2 3 1 1/1 3/6 2/2

Isaac is not an offensive force, but the contributions in the peripheral cats give him a high floor. Over the past seven games, he’s been a top 45 player, averaging 27.3 minutes, 10.3 points, 0.6 tres, 8.4 boards, 1.3 dimes, 1.4 steals, and 1.9 blocks. It’s happening! It’s happening!

Andrew Wiggins

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
23 9 3 3 2 2 0/2 10/28 3/5

Led the Wolves in shot attempts…..again. And the Wolves lost….again. This bothers me way more than it should, but I get so tilted, especially when…..

Karl-Anthony Towns

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
27 11 5 0 0 3 2/3 12/16 1/1

I’m no math major, but I do know that 75% is much better than 35%. One of these days, I’m going to see how many games the Timberwolves have won/lost when Wiggins took the most amount of shots. Then, I will somehow get in contact with Glen Taylor and have his people talk to my people and we can all have a sit down. Forget about the stupid wall. This is way more important.

Jerryd Bayless

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
0 2 3 1 0 1 0/5 0/6 0

Got the start because Jeff Teague, Derrick Rose, and Tyus Jones did not play. I wrote this two days ago, “The efficiency has been impressively bad (38% the past six games and 34% on the season).” Some things change, while others remain the same. Something to monitor is that he left the game in the fourth quarter due to a toe issue. Jeff Teague was close to returning on Thursday, but if can’t go, then Isaiah Canaan (13 pts/6 ast in 21 min) is the next man up.

The power forward spot continues to be an annoyance, as Taj Gibson (10 pts/4 reb/1 stl) got the start and played 21 minutes, while Dario Saric (17 pts/8 reb/ 1 ast) played 21 minutes.

Ivan Rabb

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 9 1 1 2 2 1/1 6/8 2/3

Got the start and played 31 minutes. With Jonas Valanciunas added to the squad, Rabb will likely return to a reserve role, but should still get minutes in the low 20s.

Jaren Jackson Jr.

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
27 7 0 2 0 5 1/2 12/18 2/3

Just don’t foul JJJ and everything will be alright.

Julian Washburn

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
2 6 0 2 0 3 0/2 0/5 2/2

Played a team-high 37 minutes. When I saw his name in the box score, I thought it was a bootleg version of Jamal Mashburn. Anyways, he had played 31, 20, and 16 minutes the prior three games. Who knew? Washburn is 6′ 8″ and 220 pounds. He played his college ball at UTEP and went undrafted in the 2015 NBA Draft. He’s spent three years in the NBA Developmental League and G-League.

Bruno Caboclo played 30 minutes and produced 16 pts/5 reb/1 ast. Yuta Watanabe played 27 minutes and produced 10 pts/5 reb/1 ast/1 stl. Shoutout to all the asians in the house. To all the non-asians, give it to us guys. We don’t get the opportunity often.

With all the trades and injuries, the Grizzlies had eight players available.

Paul George

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
27 5 4 4 0 4 6/13 7/16 7/7

I’m curious. Is George in the MVP discussion?

Russell Westbrook

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
15 13 15 4 0 1 1/4 5/16 4/6

That’s now eight straight trip-dubs. One more to tie Wilt and two to pass him for the most consecutive times messing around. The odds of that happening are about as good as rich people not voting for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Pascal Siakam

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
33 14 4 2 1 2 2/5 12/20 7/9

Played a whopping 40 minutes. Damn, what a performance. MIP! MIP! With his length, hustle, and athleticism, it’s surprising he doesn’t block more shots. Regardless, he contributes in every other cat.

P. S. – he’s really really good.

Kyle Lowry

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 8 13 0 1 2 3/11 3/13 4/6

The shooting efficiency has been laughably bad (33%), but he’s been providing plenty of tres, boards, dimes, and steals. Gotta think he will get back to the 40% range sooner than later.

Fred VanVleet

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
30 5 6 0 0 1 4/11 11/22 4/5

Got the start and played 37 minutes because Kawhi Leonard was out. VanVleet was elite last night. One of the better backup fantasy guards because he gets run regardless if he’s starting or coming off the bench, but has ceiling games because he does get the occassional start (23 on the season).

Taurean Prince

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 1 3 1 0 1 5/8 7/12 0

Got the start and played 37 minutes, his third straight. Over the past four games, Prince has been a top 55 player. The usage rate is low (14), but he contributes in everything but blocks.

The Hawks are kind of annoying because they play so many player. 13 different players saw the court, with 10 receiving at least 15 minutes of run.

Montrezl Harrell

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 1 4 2 2 6 0 9/13 1/2

Got the start and played 29 minutes. With Boban Marjanovic and Marcin Gortat off the roster, Harrell should see most of the center minutes, whether it be as a starter or reserve.

Johnathan Motley

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
10 7 0 0 0 2 0/1 4/10 2/3

Played 29 minutes, as the Clippers were thin in the front court. The coaching staff loves him, but significant minutes may be hard to come by with Ivica Zubac in the mix now. Maybe he gets some power forward minutes.

The Clippers got spanked, 92-116 in Indiana. Only four players scored in double figures. NO MORE BLURBS FOR YOU!!!

Thaddeus Young

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
14 5 4 5 0 2 2/3 6/9 0

Played 24 minutes. Young has been bouncing between top 25 and top 60 value all season long. The great thing to see has been the shooting efficiency, as he’s been above the 50% mark for most of the season. Hopefully he stays….

Bojan Bogdanovic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 7 1 3 0 1 3/6 12/19 2/2

Bojan has been a top 30 player over the past four games. Shooting 58% from the field will do that, as he’s averaged 24.5 points and 3.3 tres. He’s also grabbed 4 boards, dished out 2.8 dimes, and stolen 1.5. He accesses this ceiling from time to time, but more often than not, he resides in the top 90-100 range.

Myles Turner

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 2 3 4 6 1 3/3 7/8 0

Man, I can’t wait to see if Myles can put it all together and access his ceiling. Mutombo with a jump shot?

Cory Joseph

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 9 6 1 0 1 1/3 6/10 0

Played 32 minutes. Joseph is meh, but he can help those who need dimes and steals. He also rebounds well for a guard.

Tyreke Evans

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
8 1 2 0 0 3 0/1 3/6 2/2

Played 16 minutes. P. U. With the Pacers likely to sign Wes Matthews, it’s sayonara to that stench.

Kyle Kuzma

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 5 2 0 1 0 5/8 10/21 0

Kuzma can score and grab some boards, but his contributions are paltry in the rest of the cats. As a result, he’s been outside the top 200 the past four games.

LeBron James

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
28 12 12 3 0 3 5/10 11/21 1/5

Messed around as he led the Lakers to a 129-128 victory in Boston. I was watching the DaVinci Code the other day, so I’m all anagram crazy right now. A B C D. Any guesses?

JaVale McGee

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 8 0 0 1 1 0 7/11 3/5

With Zubac on the Clippers, McGee should soak up most the center minutes.

Rajon Rondo

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 7 10 0 0 3 3/4 7/11 0

Played 35 minutes. REVENGE! Is it revenge if he likes the team? Probably not, but whatever. There are no rules on Narrative Street. Rondo is going to be the guy at point guard for a while and is a threat to mess around on any given night. Unfortunately, there are many nights when he looks uninterested.

Jayson Tatum

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 10 5 1 0 0 1/1 9/14 3/3

Over the past seven games, Tatum has been a top 25 player. 2019 New Orleans Pelicans Jayson Tatum.

Kyrie Irving

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 7 8 2 0 3 2/6 6/21 10/10

A bad Kyrie game is a ceiling one for most humans.

Daniel Theis

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 6 2 0 2 1 2/2 9/11 0

Played 23 minutes. Theis has played at least 20 minutes in a game just eight games this season and scored at least 20 points twice. Outlier is spelled Theis.

Terry Rozier

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 4 6 1 0 0 5/7 5/9 4/4

Played 19 minutes. Usually, Rozier only plays well when he starts. I’m changing the spelling of outlier to Rozier.

Jaylen Brown

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 2 1 1 1 1 2/4 7/10 2/2

Played 25 minutes and has been a top 100 player over the past seven games. The shooting efficiency has improved from both the field and free throw line, but he’s only averaging 25 minutes per game and doesn’t dish out many dimes.

Rudy Gay

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 3 2 0 1 4 5/6 10/15 0/1

There have been seven players to be a part of the 50/40/90 club, which is 50% shooting from the field, 40% from downtown, and 90% from the line. The list is: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Mark Price, Reggie Miller, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, and Larry Bird. Gay is currently at 51/40/87. Top 50 player on the season for fantasy.

DeMar DeRozan

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
35 6 6 0 0 5 0 14/28 7/8

First time eclipsing the 30 point mark since December. Earlier in the season, DeRozan was producing at a top 50 clip. Recently, though, the points, dimes, steals, efficiency, and usage have all been down, resulting in top 100 production.

Jusuf Nurkic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 3 6 1 2 1 0 9/15 4/4

Nurkic had been shooting poorly before last night’s game (around 30%), but that could be attributed to the knee soreness he was experiencing. When healthy, Nurkic is more like a 50% shooter from the field and top 40 player.

Damian Lillard

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 2 9 5 0 2 0/7 10/20 4/4

Usually it’s Dame Dolla time, but…..

C. J. McCollum

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
30 9 2 2 2 0 7/13 10/21 3/3

C. J. has been a top 10 player over the past three games, averaging 30.3 points, 4 tres, 6 boards, 4.3 dimes, and 1.3 steals. He’s been shooting 53% from the field and has had a usage rate of 32.9! He’s also outshined Lillard the past two games.

Rodney Hood

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
14 3 0 1 0 0 2/3 6/7 0

Played 25 minutes in his Portland debut. I always have a tough time going to the Hood, but let’s see how he operates in Portland.

Jake Layman

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
13 3 2 1 0 1 1/5 5/10 2/2

Played 31 minutes. Layman has been a top 90 player the past four games. For the season, he’s shooting a robust 52% from the field and provides tres, boards, and a handful of dimes. He’s getting the minutes and producing. The question is will he keep getting the minutes? Moe Harkless has been brutal, so there’s a good chance that he does.

    Thanks!

      @RICE: Thanks RICE!

      It’s such a relative question because everyone is going to value him differently with his unique situation. Send the scouts out to see how the others value him, but ultimately, it comes down to you. How do you read the situation and how do you value him? Personally, I’d want more than DeRozan and my RichardSON, but that’s just me. With all that said, shop around and look for the best deal.

        @Son: ha I came on to ask the same question. Was going to start with AD for KAT and Embiid, then work my way down to Gobert and so forth until I just feel like the risk is greater than the player Id get. Not sure where that is. I’m less risk adverse at the moment and just tired of the situation.

    SonDiggity. Happy weekend bud. How bout that trade deadline? Shit gave me heart palpitations trying to keep up and grab any worthy gems (while at work acting like i was, you know, at work).

    I had already grabbed Kenrich speculatively. When The Gasol trade went down to scooped Delon Wright, though that was before Bradley went back that way (and i was still hoping Conley moved). Kinda of funny…such a dramatic deadline and yet not a ton of fantasy dirt seemed to get turned up…at least in my league.

    That said, through all the musical chairs of adds and drops a few interesting pieces hit the wire and id be curious to know if you would prefer any of them over anybody on my roster (the weakest links being Kenrich and Delon, unless you think G Harris or Teague is a drop at this point). Here are some names floating on my wire:

    Thomas Bryant
    Tyler Johnson
    Saric
    Dotson
    Hayward (who ive been avoiding all year)

    Ok in my mind it seemed like a more interesting pool than it is. All the same, my squad:

    Fox
    Teague
    Satoranski
    BogBog
    G. Harris
    Delon Wright
    Barton
    Kenrich Williams
    Paul George
    SIakam
    Aldridge
    Embiid
    Brolo
    Boogie
    IL: Warren

    Any tweaks you’d make? Bryant and T Johnson are on waivers but i have the #1 pick, though im thinking better to save it for a bigger moment…

    Thanks homie! Enjoy the friday!

                      @Kawhi: I’m actually ok with that one.

                      You’re not enamored with the 22% shooting from TyJo? I’m good with the Dragic move

        @Son: love? Really? Can you explain I was not expecting that. I’m a newb

          I don’t think he plays that much, whether it be injury or team motivation.

          • Crime Dog says:
            (link)

            @Son: I could probably get something for love. With my team what type of player would you Target…I’m pretty elite in FT%, steals, assists and 3pm..my next best category is blocks. Would you look to boost blocks or separate myself further with the 4 I’m best at

            • Son

              Son says:

              I’d try and find the guy who likes Love, then see what he has to offer. Then decide on which path you want to walk

        • Crime Dog says:
          (link)

          @Crime Dog: I feel like I could trade love for something in this league who’s a good Target? Or what type of player would you be looking to add

          • Son

            Son says:

            I’d try and find the guy that likes Love first, then work from there

    AD plays in back-2-back games! 34 minutes tonight. I was holding Okafor but may drop him for Huerter who at least gets minutes. Crazy!

      Son says:

      @JC: Indeed. I’m shocked the Pels are letting him play, but go where the minutes lead you

      • JC says:

        @Son:

        I am just gonna stream that spot for awhile. Wade, then Huerter tonight and already dropped him for Plumlee tomorrow. Thought about Joseph but Wes, so here we go a streamin’

    9C, 12T

    PG1 Holiday
    PG2 White
    SG1 Huerter
    SG2 J. Harris
    SG3 Smart
    SG4 T. Johnson
    SF1 Porter Jr.
    SF2 LeVert
    PF1 Durant
    PF2 Bagley
    C1 Gobert
    C2 Ayton

    OMFG, I can’t believe I missed out on Rabb and Kenrich! But MRob and Isaac are available still, so I will definitely try and nab both tomorrow once our allowed moves reset.

    I think I’m getting MRob first cos a trio of centers have always been my thing. Lol. Who should we drop for Isaac tho? The choices are: Smart, TyJo and White. I’m leaning towards TyJo… What do you say? Btw, I’m really moving on from Covington, too. It’s just really one of those seasons where your team keeps getting hurt. Meh. It sucks but it is what it is. There’s nothing we could do but… KAWHI. LMAO

    • Son

      Son says:

      @I just wanna Kawhi: I’m good with Isaac for TyJo. I’d keep Covington, but I understand where you’re coming from. You dropping Cov for MRob?

      • I just wanna Kawhi says:
        (link)

        @Son: What I meant by saying I am moving on from Covington was that I no longer see him as the one helping me win another chip. Sure, there’s still that possibility he will return to the court but with the Wolves collecting more losses by the minute thus being out of the playoff hunt, why play Covington meaningful mins upon his return? What is it to gain from doing that. Meh. It was okay if he only had to miss 3-4 weeks, but he’s been out for 6 now and is on the verge of missing another 2. Sigh…

          • I just wanna Kawhi says:
            (link)

            @Son: Hah! I mean if he doesn’t come back at all or returns but isn’t as great as he was pre injury or if Minny limits and does not fully unleash him to finish out the season, man, I’m good with that. In the first place if it weren’t for him I wouldn’t be in the position I am right now which is sitting on 2nd place. All of this is because of Lord Covington, and I’ll forever be grateful. Ha But yea, it just sucks that 3 of my top 10 rounders are out of the season: Dejounte, Oladipshit, and RoCo. I’m still in the game tho, and there’s still a lot of fight left in my squad. Ha.

            But I seem to really have lost my mojo, and I don’t want to believe that everything points to RoCo’s absence. There was a time when Porter, Harris and Dipshit are all sidelined but I was still able to miraculously rack up wins, but as soon as RoCo went down, man, everything starts spiraling down. I just hope that the addition of Uzi LeVert gives my team an added firepower. Or Mitchell Robinson finds his groove and ‘consistently’ averages 10/8 with a couple of swats… And we are about to drop TyJo for Isaac. Maybe Isaac suddenly becomes a reliable fantasy asset… Geez.

              @I just wanna Kawhi: Ha! Oladipshit! I love it.

              Hoping the best for your squad. But gotta admit, I do enjoy the drama!

      • I just wanna Kawhi says:

        @Son: and then I see this right after posting my comment. What a coincidence. Lol Maybe it’s a sign…

        Robert Covington (right knee bone bruise) was limited to going through shooting drills during Sunday’s practice.

        It doesn’t sound like Covington has made much progress with this right knee issue, and with Minnesota’s postseason hopes looking less and less realistic, there’s not much incentive for RoCo to try and rush his return. The Timberwolves haven’t given us many updates, but he’s been out for a month and a half and isn’t making much progress, so those holding him in leagues without an IR-spot may need to consider moving on if you’re struggling in the standings.

    Ok here’s Sunday afternoon question for you…

    Im stashing TJ Warren on my IL. I traded for him once he was hurt and didnt pay much attention to him earlier. I dont like the PHX playoff schedule or their abundance of wings so i thought maybe i could flip hurt Warren and some small piece for hurt Mirotic. In my mind Mirotic is a better player and now he is on a good team with a good schedule. But when i ran the numbers, almost all of Warren’s projected numbers were quite a bit higher than Mirotic’s. Seems like my intuitive feeling about the two as players was wrong…but the numbere factoring in the teams they are on, playoff schedule. etc. So…what says Son, if i can should i flip Warren for Miro?

    • Son

      Son says:

      @Court Vision: I’d rather have Mirotic, but it’s very close

      • Court Vision says:

        @Son: Yeah..its damn close eh? How bout Teague or Mirotic ROS?

    What do you think of AD for Lebron or Turner? Thanks!

    • Court Vision says:

      @miles proudfoot: Lebron and Turner are going to be playing in the fantasy playoffs. AD almost certainly will not.

      • Son

        Son says:

        @Court Vision: Agreed. If you can get any value for AD, I’d take it.
