Rudy was an absolute menace in this dissection of the Chicago Bulls. Missed just two of his own shot attempts, swatted nine of the Bulls’, and was 3-3 from the line. Chef’s kiss.

LaVine has been so damn elite this year. Perhaps the best part is the 50+% shooting on almost 20 attempts, and as a first-option guard no less!

Holmes has been a treat to own all year but especially post All-Star Break with Marvin Bagley III going down with a fractured wrist. The ultra-efficient big has posted near first-round value since then and looks to be elite the rest of the way.

The budding star just doesn’t have a very fantasy-friendly game, I’m afraid. Despite posting averages of 27.7/4.4/6.7 since the break, Fox is just outside the top-50 in that timespan. We already knew this, but Fox needs a specific build in order to be worth the value his name confers.

Put up this monster line in just 19 minutes of action. If he gets moved at the deadline to a situation where he gets 20+ MPG, he could see an uptick in production, but I’m not banking on it.

Poku is an intriguing prospect—a 7-footer who can shoot, and does so with confidence (he’s shooting threes at nearly the same percentage as he is twos). Barring tremendous growth, though, the overall FG% is too much of a drain for him to be a real contributor in fantasy hoops. And he’s going to put up a ton of shots.

I probably like Brown the best of the young Thunder guys, at least for this season. Another one of those per-minute bigs with a high motor. Seems like they’re a dime a dozen in today’s NBA, but there’s a reason that mold is so successful.

Starting to get quite worrisome for Towns’ fantasy owners, as the star big said his wrist had never felt worse before getting hit in this one. I still believe he won’t get shut down, as those concerns are usually overblown, but with a genuine health concern, the possibility is growing stronger by the day.

The city of Charlotte, NBA fans, and fantasy owners everywhere let out a collective sob when it was declared LaMelo Ball was out for the season after suffering a fractured wrist. It’ll be up to Hayward and the squad to pick up the slack, which they did in this win over San Antonio.

He’s only played 16 games this year, but he’s been solid when he has. He’ll need to shoot a bit more like he did tonight to stabilize his value, as he’s shooting a putrid 38.6% on 11 attempts per game.

Siakam has been the subject of much ridicule for his missed game-winners this year as well as the Raptors’ underwhelming record. He’s also taken a step back in fantasy, falling out of the top-50 for value on the season.

Sterling Brown had a nice night and was tied for the highest +/- to snap the Rockets’ 20-game losing streak. Still not worthy of fantasy consideration in standard leagues.

Morant has been pretty bad since returning from injury—his percentages are subpar and he doesn’t provide much outside of point and assists. He did throw down a nasty one-handed jam, though, so I guess his fantasy season is saved.

Jrue wasn’t messing around. When he’s taking care of the ball and shooting it at a high clip, what more can you ask for? It’s crazy how expectations change perception, as Jrue was viewed as a fringe first-rounder last year and his perceived value was so much worse off for it.

Mann double-doubled off the bench, leading the Clips to a win against Atlanta. He actually has some ROS potential, as the Clippers bench is quickly fading (looking at you, Lou Will, Nic Batum). Still, L.A. could look to acquire some depth pieces at the deadline, so that will determine whether or not Mann gets the minutes necessary to thrive.
