Richaun Holmes Headshot

Holmes will start at center for Monday's game against the Magic.

Added 03/20/17 5:46 pm (EST)
Jahlil Okafor was pulled from Sunday's game against the Celtics with a sore left knee and will now sit out Monday to avoid any further complications in the second night of a back-to-back set. That said, Holmes should jump back into the starting lineup for the second time over the last three games and should be in line for the bulk of the workload at center, thus making him an intriguing DFS play Monday.
Trevor Ariza Headshot

Ariza scored 24 points (9-11 FG, 6-8 3Pt) while adding six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 137-125 win over the Thunder.

Added 1:06 am (EST)
It's his best scoring effort since he put up 27 against the Mavs back in the second game of the season, while the six three-pointers tied Ariza's season high. The 31-year-old is too volatile to trust on DFS rosters -- he'd scored in single digits in three of his previous four games heading into Sunday -- but his overall averages make him a solid complementary piece in season-long leagues.
Al Horford Headshot

Horford contributed seven points (2-6 FG, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block across 31 minutes during Sunday's 112-108 victory over the Heat.

Added 12:57 am (EST)
Horford has been demonstrating his all-around game over the past 13 appearances, averaging 13.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists across 31.8 minutes per game. He's surprisingly sacrificed some scoring in favor of assists this season -- something that could be good or bad depending on the fantasy format. Regardless, his fantasy value should remain relatively stagnant heading into the final games of the season.
Lou Williams Headshot

Williams scored 31 points (11-15 FG, 7-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four assists, three rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 137-125 win over the Thunder.

Added 12:53 am (EST)
It's the second time in six games Williams has scored 30 or more and drained seven three-pointers, but in between those offensive explosions the 30-year-old guard went 0-for-12 from beyond the arc. That volatility makes him difficult to use on a fantasy roster, but on the right night Williams can be a DFS windfall.
Enes Kanter Headshot

Kanter scored 23 points (9-12 FG, 5-5 FT) while adding four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 23 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 137-125 loss to the Rockets.

Added 12:37 am (EST)
He continues to be the Thunder's main weapon on the second unit, and Kanter has now scored in double digits in 14 straight games while picking up five double-doubles during that stretch.
Russell Westbrook Headshot

Westbrook scored 39 points (13-24 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 10-16 FT) while adding 13 assists and 11 rebounds in 39 minutes during Sunday's 137-125 loss to the Rockets.

Added 12:34 am (EST)
In a battle of MVP candidates, Westbrook has the better stat line but James Harden got the victory. Westbrook now has 36 triple-doubles on the season, including six in the last eight games, as he attempts to lock down a postseason berth for the Thunder.
Jae Crowder Headshot

Crowder contributed 25 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist across 36 minutes during Sunday's 112-108 victory over the Heat.

Added 12:32 am (EST)
Crowder has been a consistent scoring presence for the Celtics recently, scoring in double-figures for the sixth straight game Sunday. He also added a combined four steals and blocks for the second time over that stretch. That being said, he likely won't be putting up over 20 points in too many affairs considering he's the fourth option in the Celtics offense, averaging 9.9 field-goal attempts per game. On the plus side, he's improved his efficiency over last season, bumping up his field-goal percentage to 45.3 from 44.3, and his three-point percentage up to 39.7 from 33.6. Overall, Crowder's fantasy value will likely remain stagnant the rest of the way, barring a major shake-up in the Celtics' health or rotation.
Amir Johnson Headshot

Johnson contributed 14 points (6-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and two steals across 27 minutes during Sunday's 112-108 victory over the Heat.

Added 12:21 am (EST)
Johnson did it all Sunday against a surging Heat team, making all of his shot attempts, rebounding well, setting up his teammates to score and being a defensive presence. He tied his season-high five assists and managed his best scoring effort since he dropped 14 points Feb. 8 against the Kings. As the Celtics look to boost their playoff seeding, they'll need Johnson to bring it every night as the starter at power forward next to center Al Horford. He'll look to have another impressive performance Wednesday against the Bucks.
Tyler Johnson Headshot

Johnson contributed 24 points (9-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists across 31 minutes during Sunday's 112-108 loss to the Celtics.

Added 12:09 am (EST)
With Dion Waiters (ankle) sidelined, Johnson has become the featured guard off the bench for the Heat. That being said, his numbers hadn't improved much over Waiters' three-game absence -- until Sunday's performance. While Johnson won't rack up many assists, averaging 3.3 per game on the season, he's shown ability to score, rebound, and pick pockets when he's on his game. His fantasy value will likely remain largely the same moving forward, though it's possibly he'll see a slight uptick if he gets comfortable in Waiters' absence.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Headshot

Antetokounmpo scored 22 points (8-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-10 FT) while adding eight rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes during Sunday\s 109-94 loss to the Bulls.

Added 12:06 am (EST)
The 22-year-old is starting to heat up again, scoring at least 22 points in four straight games while averaging 27.5 points, 10.8 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steals during that stretch. Expect Antetokounmpo to continue producing at a high level as the Bucks try to hang onto a playoff spot.
James Johnson Headshot

Johnson tallied 20 points (7-17 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 29 minutes during Sunday's 112-108 loss to the Celtics.

Added Yesterday 11:58 pm (EST)
Johnson bounced back Sunday from subpar offensive performances over his past two games -- where he totaled 20 points on 6-of-23 shooting, five rebounds and four assists. With Dion Waiters (ankle) sidelined, Johnson has assumed a significant chunk of the ballhandling duties off the bench for the Heat and will likely continue to put up all-around two-way performances in Waiters' absence, making him a solid fantasy option in any format.
