Odubel Herrera Headshot

Herrera (cramps) went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Twins.

Herrera missed Wednesdays game due to cramping from dehydration. He is expected to hit third for the Phillies, giving him a solid spot in the lineup to increase his counting stats this season.
5:44 am (EST)
Michael Saunders Headshot

Saunders is hitting .200/.308/.289 with a home run in 45 at-bats this spring.

Spring stats do not matter for Saunders, who is locked in as the Phillies' starting right fielder, but it would be nice to see him start producing a bit more with the regular season around the corner. Saunders hit fifth Thursday in what was a likely preview of the lineup manager Pete Mackanin will typically roll out against right handed pitchers this season.
5:41 am (EST)
Jeremy Lin Headshot

Lin (ankle) started at point guard and scored 13 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding five assists and three rebounds in 21 minutes during Thursday's 126-98 win against the Suns.

After missing a game with a sprained ankle, Lin was productive in his return. There was no announcement that his minutes would be limited, and he also saw only 21 minutes in his last fully healthy game. Since the Nets were up big the entire second half, it's hard to know whether his minutes were limited due to caution, circumstance, or this is simply the role he should expect to see going forward. In the eight games before the ankle injury, Lin averaged 25.3 minutes per night.
4:14 am (EST)
K.J. McDaniels Headshot

McDaniels scored 16 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added eight rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 24 minutes during Thursday's 126-98 win over the Suns.

This was, by far, the best night of McDaniel's season. It was also the second night in a row that he played at least 20 minutes, and he scored in double-digits both times. He has become a regular part of the rotation over the last five games, averaging 19.4 minutes, 10.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 threes. That's only valuable in very deep leagues, but McDaniels' ability to accrue threes, steal, and blocks, makes him a player worth keeping an eye on in standard sized leagues.
4:08 am (EST)
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Headshot

Hollis-Jefferson scored five points (2-10 FG, 1-2 FT) and added 16 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 15 minutes during Thursday's 126-98 win over the Suns.

Despite matching his third-lowest minutes total of the season, Hollis-Jefferson set his season-high for rebounds. His shot wasn't falling, and the Nets were winning big, so they gave extra minutes to backups. It was the second time in four games that he played less than 17 minutes, but the other two games he averaged 28.5. Despite this strange and excellent box score, his inconsistency and low productivity makes him tough to own in a lot of settings.
3:59 am (EST)
Marquese Chriss Headshot

Chriss scored 23 points (8-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and added 11 rebounds, two steals and one block in 31 minutes during Thursday's 126-98 loss to the Nets.

Chriss earned his second career double-double Thursday, and it also marked the first time he achieved consecutive 20-point games. Chriss has scored in double-digits for five straight games, and is averaging 8.2 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, 1.8 threes, and 1.4 steals during that stretch. Granted, this is only a limited stretch of games, but only two players in NBA history have averaged at least 1.4 threes, steals, and blocks in a single season.
3:43 am (EST)
Devin Booker Headshot

Booker scored 28 points (9-26 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 7-8 FT) and added three steals and two rebounds in 40 minutes during Thursday's 126-98 loss to the Nets.

Booker fouled out with almost four minutes left in the game, so he may have ended up playing even more minutes. Booker's already high minutes load has increased lately, and he has played at least 38 minutes in five of his last eight appearances. His production has generally scaled up with the extra load, as his scoring and rebounding have increased, though his field goal and three-point shooting numbers have fallen.
3:17 am (EST)
Leon Draisaitl Headshot

Draisaitl finished with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 7-4 win over Colorado.

Draisaitl was quiet for most of this one, but got going late after being demoted to the second line. He helped set up Drake Caggiula's game-winning goal with just over two minutes left, then added an empty-netter in the final minute. The red-hot forward has posted six consecutive multi-point outings, with three goals and 10 assists in that span.
2:05 am (EST)
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Headshot

Nugent-Hopkins dished out two helpers in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Avalanche.

It looked like Nugent-Hopkins was going to miss out on all the fun, but his late contributions were key to this comeback victory. His first assist came on Drake Caggiula's game-winner with 2:11 to play, while his second came on a Leon Draisaitl empty-netter 90 seconds later. Nugent-Hopkins came in with just two points in his past nine games, but his scoring rate will likely rise if Draisaitl's move to the second line in place of Jordan Eberle extends beyond just the third period of this contest.
2:00 am (EST)
Drake Caggiula Headshot

Caggiula scored a goal and added an assist Thursday in Colorado.

Caggiula's goal with 2:11 to play broke a 4-4 tie, and ultimately stood up as the game-winner as his team rallied from 4-2 down to win 7-4. He has four points in the past six games after going 13 without one.
