Aaron Brooks Headshot

Brooks recorded 18 points (6-15 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal over 28 minutes in Wednesday's 110-97 loss to the Grizzlies.

It looked like Brooks wanted to win the game on his own in the first half, as the journeyman point guard drained all four of his 3-pointers and another 2-point shot in the first two quarters. He usually only averages 13.3 minutes of usage behind Jeff Teague, but the team exhausted itself trying to keep up with Mike Conley and as a result, Brooks saw some more time and took advantage of the opportunity. Despite this exceptional outing, Brooks is essentially a role player who has little fantasy value. Unless something happens to Teague, he should remain on the waiver wire.
12:50 am (EST)
Thaddeus Young Headshot

Young posted 16 points (8-12 FG), 13 rebounds, three assists and one steal over 33 minutes in Wednesday's 110-97 loss to the Grizzlies.

It's been a rough road for Young since he returned from injury after the All-Star break, as he simply hasn't looked like his old self. Wednesday's double-double was his first since late December and it was also his highest rebound total of the year, so there's some hope that he's finally turned the corner. Though Young has seen his output dip since joining the Pacers this year, he's still provided decent output, as he's the third-leading rebounder on the team despite missing almost a month. Although there's cause to be cautious about plugging Young into your lineups, Wednesday's outing proves there is plenty of gas in the tank for a surprise surge in the final weeks of the season.
12:39 am (EST)
Paul George Headshot

George scored 22 points (8-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go along with four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots over 36 minutes in Wednesday's 110-97 loss to the Grizzlies.

George posted yet another balanced stat line on Wednesday, and as the unquestioned top producer for the Pacers, their postseason success is squarely on his shoulders. Owners shouldn't be concerned about the Pacers resting George though, as they will be jockeying for playoff position in the East until the final buzzer. George should keep his season pace of 22.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game until the end of the season.
12:21 am (EST)
Marvin Williams Headshot

Williams totaled 18 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds one assist and one steal across 35 minutes during a 110-106 win over the Raptors on Wednesday.

Williams double-doubled as he also knocked in at least four three-pointers for the second time in the last three games. He has been pretty solid over the last five games, with averages of 12.6 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers made and 1.6 assists per game in that stretch.
12:18 am (EST)
Marco Belinelli Headshot

Belinelli produced 21 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five assists, one steal and one block across 27 minutes during a 110-106 win over the Raptors on Wednesday.

After two consecutive single-digit outings, Belinelli bounced back as he reached the 20-point mark for the third time in the last five games. He has been a good distributor over the last two games, with five assists in each game, after he had not reached at least five assists in a game since February.
12:18 am (EST)
Cory Joseph Headshot

Joseph recorded 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks across 35 minutes during a 110-106 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.

Joseph turned in an excellent all-around line in the loss. The two blocks marked a season high for him. Kyle Lowry (wrist) remains without a timetable for a return, so Joseph looks like a solid option for owners at point guard to close out the regular season.
12:17 am (EST)
DeMarre Carroll Headshot

Carroll (back) returned from a two-game absence and contributed three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 25 minutes during a 110-106 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday.

Carroll was mostly nonexistent in the return to the floor, as he just made one shot across 25 minutes of action. He will be better than this in most games, but don't expect much from Carroll other than minimal points and three-pointers.
12:15 am (EST)
Dario Saric Headshot

Saric recorded 15 points (5-18 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one block across 39 minutes in Wednesday's 99-92 loss to the Hawks.

There's no question that Saric will get his shots up-- he's averaged over 16 attempts per game over his last five-- but whether or not those shots go in is another question entirely. The Rookie of the Year candidate is averaging 18.2 points over that five game span, but he's doing so on just 39.5 percent from the field and a dreadful 28 percent from deep. Luckily the well-rounded game Saric displayed Wednesday helps to make up for his shooting inefficiency, and makes him a reasonable fantasy play on most nights.
12:04 am (EST)
Zach Randolph Headshot

Randolph tallied 17 points (8-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one steal over 25 minutes in Wednesday's 110-97 win over the Pacers

With Chandler Parsons (knee) out for the season and JaMychal Green (shoulder) sidelined, the Grizzlies started Brandon Knight at the 4 but leaned on Randolph down the stretch, which is a regular occurrence for Memphis. His regular presence off the bench has been a key component for the team's success, and the 16-year vet has thrived in that role. He's largely outperformed expectations this season as many thought his evenings of double-doubles were largely behind him, but he's recorded 18 of them this season. Randolph can be a very valuable reserve player in most formats and is almost a chalk player in DFS tournaments due to his cheap price and ability to reach value consistently.
12:01 am (EST)
Richaun Holmes Headshot

Holmes recorded 25 points (11-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 32 minutes of play in Wednesday's 99-92 loss to the Hawks.

Holmes notched his highest point total of his career as he paced the Sixers in scoring charge Wednesday, but it wasn't quite enough to take down the Hawks. The big man from Bowling Green makes an interesting fantasy play because of his ability to fill up an array of fantasy categories, including occasional three-pointers, but an inconsistent role in the Sixers' starting lineup coupled with the general inconsistent play of a second year, second-round draft pick make him a risky play on any given night. Wednesday was just the fourth time all season that Holmes recorded over 30 minutes of action.
