Lance Stephenson recorded his NBA leading 5th triple-double of the season in the win over the Thunder on Sunday.
Born Ready went off for 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field (2-for-5 3-pointers), with 10 rebounds, 11 assists, and a blocked shot in 41 minutes. The win put the Pacers a half-game ahead of the Miami Heat for the number one seed in the Eastern Conference.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Dioner Navarro was 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI on Friday.
Dioner Navarro has had a hard time staying relevant in fantasy. After an early season injury and with Russell Martin playing the majority of time at catcher, there has not been much time for Navarro to be in the lineup. However, Navarro did drive in half of Toronto’s runs on Friday night with a bases clearing double. For the season though, he has only played 26 games and his hitting .235 so his fantasy value is limited to American League only formats. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Josh Donaldson was 1-for-5 with a run and two RBI on Friday.
Although it was not a huge stat line for Josh Donaldson on Friday night, he did drive in two runs after the Blue Jays were no hit for seven innings. His career year continues though as Donaldson now has scored 61 runs with 19 home runs, 54 RBI while hitting .298/.356/.535 for the Blue Jays. While his average could come down in the second half due to his inflated BABIP, Donaldson has shown what he can do in a better hitting environment in Toronto and is a top three third baseman going forward.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run against the Orioles on Friday.
Abreu’s 50th career home run in just his 218th career game tied him for the fewest games to reach the mark by a White Sox player. While that’s a nice line, Abreu has still had a drop off in power this year with just 14 homers, and is in jeopardy of not reaching the 30 mark. Since finishing in the top five in all Triple Crown categories during his rookie campaign, it had to be expected that Abreu might see his numbers dip in his sophomore season. He still owns a solid .488 slugging percentage with 44 RBI and is always a candidate for a power surge. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Derrick Williams agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Knicks.
Williams never got a qualifying offer from the Kings, so it was pretty easy for the Knicks to swoop in on a potential buy-low here. Williams has been a disappointment since being drafted No. 2 overall back in 2010, but he's just 24 years old and perhaps he just needs to find the right mix. It wasn't with the Timberwolves nor with the Kings, so there's an obvious risk, but for the price and length of the deal, it might be worth a shot. Analysis: Howard Bender
