Marco Belinelli Headshot

Belinelli scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding three rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

Belinelli now has recorded 20 points in consecutive games for the first time on the season as it was just his third game where he's hit the 20-point plateau on the season. Known for being a prolific shooter, it's weird that more nights like Friday's haven't happened this season, but Belinelli showed why he's considered in fantasy formats. It's hard to believe he will keep up the production for much longer since he's been given the minutes all year to do just that, but has failed to perform consistently.

Cody Zeller Headshot

Zeller scored 15 points (6-6 FG, 3-7 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 32 minutes in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

Although a tall center, Zeller has not reached 10 rebounds in a game all that much on the year as Friday night marked his eighth game where he accomplished that feat. He's been a consistent starter for the Hornets and doesn't have to worry about minutes, so if he can grab more rebounds and hit five of his 10 shots he shoots on average in a game, he can be a more utilized fantasy option.

Kemba Walker Headshot

Walker collected 28 points (10-20 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 39 minutes in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

The points continue to pour in for Walker on the year, but he has struggled to contribute in other categories lately. He's eclipsed five assists three times in the last six games, which shouldn't be hard to do regularly for a point guard of his ability. Walker remains a great fantasy option due to his knack for finding the bottom of the net, but he won't be a premier fantasy point guard until he contributes more assists and rebounds.

LeBron James Headshot

James tallied 32 points (9-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 14-16 FT), 11 assists, nine rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 40 minutes in Friday's 112-105 victory over the Hornets.

After a subpar performance in each of the last two games, James came to play Friday night, stuffing the stat sheet and missing just two free throws on the night. When James' shot is on, he can tally 30 points easily, but on off nights, James sits in between 10 and 20 points and tries to make up for it by becoming more of a facilitator and rebounder. While his numbers this year don't match other elite players as they have in the past, he continues to be one of the most consistent options in fantasy.

Bojan Bogdanovic Headshot

Bogdanovic scored 17 points (6-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 26 minutes in Friday's 129-108 victory over the Nets.

After eight consecutive games scoring between 10 and 20 points, Bogdanovic cooled off Wednesday night before returning to his usual self Friday night, collecting another 17 points for the season. He's hit just one of his last 12 threes, which is the source of his issues. If he can find his stroke again from the outside and get back to his nearly 40 percent average from three on the year, he could become a consistent fantasy option for points.
9:28 pm (EST)
Brandon Ingram Headshot

Ingram (knee) will play and start at small forward for Friday's matchup against the Timberwolves, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The rookie was able to fully participate in the Lakers' morning shootaround Friday, so this status is unsurprising. Ingram has reached double figures in scoring in 11 of his 13 games since the All-Star break, while averaging 13.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.0 steal across across 36.6 minutes per game in the process. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload against the Timberwolves.
9:25 pm (EST)
Justin Hamilton Headshot

Hamilton registered 20 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 23 minutes in Friday's 129-108 loss to the Wizards.

In his first back-to-back double-digit scoring games since January 15th, Hamilton showcased his range as a big man, connecting on all but one of his threes from the floor Friday night. He doesn't play half of the games and when he does play, his minutes are limited, so he should remain on waivers in most fantasy formats.
9:22 pm (EST)
Ian Mahinmi Headshot

Mahinmi scored 16 points (5-6 FG, 6-7 FT) while adding seven rebounds, four steals and one block across 24 minutes in Friday's 129-108 victory over the Nets.

Mahinmi has played second fiddle to Marcin Gortat all year on the Wizards, but it looks like it may start to be more of a timeshare as Gortat has averaged just 24 minutes per game over his last 15 contests, which is well short of his season average (32.2 minutes per game). Neither player has been a solid option of late as they both struggle to score from the post, and it should only even out more as the season progresses and the players' minutes become more even.
9:20 pm (EST)
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Headshot

Hollis-Jefferson tallied 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal across 22 minutes in Friday's 129-108 loss to the Wizards.

Hollis-Jefferson had a very efficient night from the floor after shooting just 30 percent over the last four games. The main reason Hollis-Jefferson lacks fantasy value is his inconsistency, as his minutes fluctuate on a nightly basis and his shot is either on or off for an entire game. Regardless, Hollis-Jefferson could make a case to be rostered in more fantasy formats if he can improve his shooting percentage.
9:18 pm (EST)
Malachi Richardson Headshot

Richardson (hamstring) will not play in Friday's game against the Warriors, James Ham of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Richardson has not played since Feb. 15, the last game before the All Star break, as he has been dealing with a hamstring injury. The Kings have not offered a time table on his recovery, rendering him day-to-day going forward. His next opportunity to return will be Sunday against the Clippers.
