Gary Harris has still failed to muster a full practice session and will likely be delaying his season debut. If Harris does not suit up on Saturday, Jamal Murray should see some increased minutes. If Harris finds a way to get on the court Saturday, he will likely be low owned in daily leagues. However, his minutes should be capped until he proves he can fully participate in practice.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Headshot

Caldwell-Pope scored 25 points (9-22 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 5-6 FT) and added five rebounds in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 97-96 loss to the Pistons.

Added 5:03 am (EST)
Caldwell-Pope is an inconsistent scorer, but he is playing big minutes. He is averaging 33.1 minutes per game since the break, and he has 11 games of double-digit scoring and seven games in single-digits. Tuesday's performance is one of his best of the season, but that does little to help managers predict how he'll perform in his next game.
Tobias Harris Headshot

Harris scored 19 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 97-96 loss to the Pistons.

Added 4:56 am (EST)
Harris moved to the bench, making way for Jon Leuer to reclaim his old starting spot Tuesday. Despite the swap, Harris drastically outplayed Leuer, who missed every shot from the field and only scored on two foul shots in just 17 minutes. Even if Leuer remains in the starting lineup, Harris should still see enough minutes to be worth starting in a lot of fantasy settings.
Jon Leuer Headshot

Leuer started at power forward and scored two points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 97-96 loss to the Heat.

Added 4:51 am (EST)
After losing his starting role weeks ago to Tobias Harris, Leuer got moved back in Tuesday. The results were poor, as Leuer struggled and played only 17 minutes - in the month before the All-Star break, Leuer was seeing 27.8 minutes per game. Between his poor play and the Pistons' late defeat, it is unclear whether he will remain the starter for much longer.
Goran Dragic Headshot

Dragic scored 28 points (9-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 9-13 FT) and added four rebounds, four assists and one block in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 97-96 win over the Pistons.

Added 4:42 am (EST)
This marked his second-highest scoring total since the All-Star break, and tied the most free throws he's attempted all season. Dragic has been very consistent this season, and his numbers before and after the All-Star break and nearly identical. He'll look to continue his strong play in games against the Knicks, one of the least efficient defenses in the league, on Wednesday and Friday.
Sean Kilpatrick Headshot

Kilpatrick (hamstring) scored nine points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt) in 12 minutes during Tuesday's 106-101 loss to the 76ers.

Added 4:33 am (EST)
Kilpatrick missed seven games with the hamstring injury, and, as expected, saw only limited minutes in his return. When healthy, Kilpatrick has had some fringe fantasy value as a scorer and three-point shooter, averaging 13.3 points and 1.5 threes in 25.5 minutes this season. Shortly before the injury, he put together a three-game streak of 20 point games. Until he returns to his old minutes load, he is hard to own outside of very deep leagues. Nonetheless, his return cuts into the available minutes for Randy Foye, Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie.
Tiago Splitter Headshot

Splitter (calf) scored two points (1-2 FG) and added three rebounds and one block in seven minutes during his season debut in Tuesday' 106-101 win over the Nets.

Added 4:27 am (EST)
Considering how few minutes he played, Splitter had a productive debut. It was his first NBA game in over a year, though he appeared in some D-League games late in his rehab process. Jahlil Okafor (knee) was out Tuesday, opening the door for Splitter to see minutes. With the 76ers on the brink of official elimination from the playoffs, and with Splitter's contract set to expire at the end of the season, it seems unlikely that he will see much court time when the team is healthier.
Robert Covington Headshot

Covington scored 21 points (9-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added 13 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 106-101 win over the Nets.

Added 4:18 am (EST)
For the third time in March, Covington scored at least 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. His well-rounded production Tuesday is a fitting demonstration of the kinds of numbers he has been putting up since the All-Star break, averaging 16.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.3 threes, 1.9 steals, 1.4 assists and 1.4 blocks. This isn't the first time Covington has shown himself capable of across the board production, but it is probably the first time the fourth-year player has done it this well for this long.
Brook Lopez Headshot

Lopez scored 26 points (10-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added nine rebounds, six assists and two blocks in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 106-101 loss to the 76ers.

Added 4:07 am (EST)
Lopez has scored at least 23 points in eight of his last 10 games. He's averaging 22.7 points during this stretch, while helping the Nets to a 5-5 record. He's one of only three Nets averaging double-digit scoring during this run, so his usage should remain high.
C.J. McCollum Headshot

McCollum recorded 39 points (15-24 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one steal across 40 minutes during a 122-113 win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Added 12:53 am (EST)
McCollum was exceptional in tallying his second-highest scoring output of the season in a near must-win game for the team. He has now reached at least 30 points in two of the last three games. McCollum's averages of 23.3 points, 48.8 percent from the field, 42.6 percent from three-point land and 3.6 rebounds per game are all on pace to be career bests.
Jusuf Nurkic Headshot

Nurkic totaled 33 points (12-15 FG, 9-11 FT), 16 rebounds, three blocks and two assists across 33 minutes during a 122-113 win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Added 12:53 am (EST)
Nurkic went off for a career-high 33 points as he was clearly motivated to go up against his former team. The offensive outburst signaled a strong bounce back effort after he had scored just nine points on the same number of field goal attempts on Sunday. Owners who picked up Nurkic after he was traded to Portland will continue to reap the benefits as the season comes to a close.
