Patrick McCaw Headshot

Patrick McCaw will miss Friday's game against the Lakers.

Added 11/04/16 9:49 pm (EST)   Source
McCaw, a second-round pick (38th) in this year's draft, played a combined 19 minutes off the Warriors' bench over the first two games of the season, but he has been on the bench with a sprained ankle ever since. McCaw will miss his fourth straight game Friday night.
LaMarcus Aldridge Headshot

Aldridge provided 23 points (10-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks over 36 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 win over the Grizzlies.

Added 9:42 am (EST)
Aldridge took advantage of a poor shooting Memphis team to grab a team-high eight boards, marking his third game in the last four with at least that number of rebounds. He had the hot hand from the field once again as well, and he's now shot 54.9 percent (39-for-71) over the last four games. He's enjoying one of his best months of the season overall despite his recent cardiac scare, with averages of 18.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 blocks across 34.6 minutes over 10 games.
Andrew Harrison Headshot

Harrison registered eight points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 16 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 loss to the Spurs.

Added 9:37 am (EST)
Harrison co-led the second unit in scoring with Zach Randolph and provided his second solid offensive performance off the bench. The second-year guard had tallied 10 points over 24 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans and is shooting 50 percent (6-for-12) from the field over the last two games. He's enjoyed an extended stretch of modest but consistent playing time in March, as Harrison has now seen between 11 and 24 minutes in nine consecutive contests. He's exclusively a very deep league option for those desperate for some scoring contributions at this point of the season.
Zach Randolph Headshot

Randolph compiled eight points (2-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds and two assists over 28 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 loss to the Spurs.

Added 9:31 am (EST)
The veteran co-led the second unit in scoring along with Andrew Harrison while playing more minutes than anyone on the bench. It was notably Randolph's first game in the last six with single-digit shot attempts, but he remains a valuable asset in all formats for his ability to provide above-average production in scoring and rebounds despite not having a starting role. The 16-year-pro is now averaging 11.7 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists across 22.6 minutes in 11 March contests.
Tony Allen Headshot

Allen (knee) supplied eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block over 29 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 loss to the Spurs.

Added 9:24 am (EST)
Allen took the court after missing Tuesday's game against the Pelicans with his sore left knee and provided his typically full stat line. The veteran will never wow you with his scoring totals, but his ability to contribute across the stat sheet keeps him viable in deeper formats and renders him a cost-effective play in daily leagues. Factoring in Thursday's production, Allen is averaging 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 25.2 minutes in 10 March contests.
Vince Carter Headshot

Carter totaled nine points (3-10 FG, 3-8 3Pt) two rebounds, one assist and one steal over 25 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 loss to the Spurs.

Added 9:19 am (EST)
The ageless veteran continues to start at small forward and bounced back somewhat from a four-point effort against the Pelicans on Tuesday. Carter continues to struggle with his shot, however, as he's posted a 28.6 percent success rate (8-for-28) from the field over the last three games. He continues to remain aggressive despite the struggles, as eight of his 10 shot attempts Thursday emanated from behind the arc.
Marc Gasol Headshot

Gasol provided 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three assists and one block over 39 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 loss to the Spurs.

Added 9:11 am (EST)
Gasol joined Mike Conley as the only two Grizzlies to hit double digits in the scoring column in what was a suffocating performance by the Spurs defense. The game did mark Gasol's fourth straight with less than 20 points and sixth overall in the last seven contests. It was also the veteran Spaniard's second double-double of March, with both instances having come in the last four games.
Mike Conley Headshot

Conley scored 22 points (7-18 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 7-7 FT) and added six assists and two rebounds over 36 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 loss to the Spurs.

Added 9:08 am (EST)
On a night where the Spurs defense wore down Memphis throughout all four quarters, Conley was the one player to break through offensively. His scoring total was easily a team high and represented his fourth game with more than 20 points in the last six. His recent struggles from long distance persisted, however, as Conley has now shot just 28 percent (7-for-25) from behind the arc over the last four contests.
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.

Added 4:14 am (EST)
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.
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 across 24 minutes during Thursday's 126-98 win over the Suns.

Added 4:08 am (EST)
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.
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.

Added 3:59 am (EST)
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.
