Jae Crowder scored 18 points (8-17 FGA) and grabbed four rebounds off the bench in the Celtics 85-84 win over the Jazz on Wednesday night.

Crowder has been great off the bench for Boston since coming over at the deadline as he has had several outings with double figure scoring. He should however, not be viewed as a reliable fantasy option, so don't pay too much attention to his name in the box scores. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Kevin Martin struggled on Wednesday, scoring nine points on 3-of-15 shooting with three rebounds and two assists in the Timberwolves 100-85 loss to the Nuggets.

This was a rare performance for Martin as he was averaging 21.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.9 three-pointers for the month of February. Martin returned to the Timberwolves lineup following a one game absence due to illness so its possible that he was still feeling the effects which resulted in the poor showing but given his track record a bounce back performance should be expected next time he hits the floor. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Andrew Wiggins scored a game high 20 points with five rebounds, one assist and one block in the Timberwolves 100-85 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Despite the woes the Timberwolves have as a team Wiggins has impressed during his rookie campaign and is currently enjoying a strong stretch of play where he is averaging 19.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals over the past five games.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Ricky Rubio registered a double-double on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with three rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in the Timberwolves 100-85 loss to the Nuggets.

Rubio has been on fire of late, averaging 12.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 9.8 assists and 2.2 steals over the past five games which has made him one of the highest scoring fantasy players on the daily circuit. In typical Rubio fashion however he is shooting just 32-percent from the field during that stretch. Rubio now has three double-doubles and one triple-double over the last four games and should continue to be a great asset to fantasy teams as playoffs near. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Danilo Gallinari scored 16 points with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Nuggets 100-85 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

Finally healthy Gallinari is proving why he was once one of the more promising young players in the game. Gallinari is in the middle of a strong stretch of play where he is averaging 19.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.2 three-pointers over the past five games. As the Nuggets season winds down I expect a majority of the offense to run through Gallinari which should mean big things for his owners. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Ty Lawson struggled mightily on Wednesday as he laid a goose egg, going 0-for-9 from the field but did save his owners by pulling down seven rebounds and handing out nine assists in the Nuggets 100-85 win over the Timberwolves.

Lawson is in a real slump of late, averaging 8.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 8.6 assists and 1.6 steals over the last five games while shooting a miserable 33.3-percent from the field. Overall this season the Nuggets point guard is averaging 16.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 9.8 assists per game which should give his owners some hope that a turnaround is possible as fantasy playoffs near. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Kenneth Faried registered a double-double on Wednesday, scoring a team high 18 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in the Nuggets 100-85 win over the Timberwolves.

With Jusuf Nurkic has been getting the start at center for the Nuggets and despite being undersized for the position he is averaging 11.8 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals over the past four games. Faried has proven to a be a double-double threat on a nightly basis and given his new role in the Nuggets front court he should continue to be a solid fantasy contributor.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Josh Smith came off the bench to score 16 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in the Rockets 102-100 loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

With Terrence Jones being moved into the starting lineup Smith has seen some of his playing time decrease and with it his overall production has suffered a bit. Over the past five games Smith is averaging 11.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.8 blocks. With Dwight Howards return still undetermined Smith should continue to average nearly 25.0 minutes a game off the bench for the Rockets. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

James Harden registered a double-double on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with four rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two blocks in the Rockets 102-100 loss to the Grizzlies.

Harden has now registered a double-double in three of the past four games in which he is averaging 21.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 10.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.3 steals and 1.8 three-pointers. Harden is making a case for the leagues MVP as he looks to take the Rockets into the Western Conference playoffs. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Terrence Jones flirted with a double-double on Wednesday, scoring a team high 21 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in the Rockets 102-100 loss to the Grizzlies.

Jones has been moved into the starting lineup for the Rockets and he has thrived, averaging 19.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over the last five games. With Dwight Howards status still up in the air Jones should continue to be a top fantasy player at the power forward position. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Zach Randolph filled the stat sheet on Wednesday, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block in the Grizzlies 102-100 win over the Rockets.

Randolph returned to the lineup after a one game absence due to illness to fill the stat sheet against the Rockets. Over the past four games Randolph is averaging 15.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals per game. Randolph was a double-double machine during the month of January having at one point notched 12 straight games with one and should continue to be a double-double candidate on a nightly basis. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Mike Conley scored 17 points with two rebounds, six assists and one steal in the Grizzlies 102-100 win over the Rockets on Wednesday.

Conley has been in a bit of a slump of late as hes coming off a month where he averaged just 13.8 points and shot just 41.1% from the field so his owners are certainly pleased with his performance on Wednesday. Conley has scored 17 points in two of the last three games so this could be a turning point for him as the Grizzlies march towards the playoffs. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Marc Gasol scored a team high 21 points with seven rebounds, six assists and one block in the Grizzlies 102-100 win over the Rockets on Wednesday.

Gasol continues to produce at a career high level, averaging 18.0 points, 8.2 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.6 blocks over the past five games. Gasol is expected to be one of the biggest free agent targets this coming off-season and nights like Wednesday prove why. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Lou Williams came off the bench to score 26 points with two rebounds and six assists in the Raptors 120-112 loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Williams continues to make his case for the NBAs Sixth Man award as he is averaging 18.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 three-pointers over the past five games. Overall this season Williams is averaging 15.3 points and 1.8 three-pointers in 24.8 minutes per game. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points with one rebound and one steal in the Raptors 120-112 loss to the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

DeRozan continues to be a great source of points for both the Raptors and fantasy owners but his lack of contributions in other categories is somewhat disappointing. DeRozan is the Raptors leading scorer, averaging 18.3 points per game this season. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
