Brock Nelson Headshot

Nelson handed out a pair of assists in Thursday's 3-0 win over Montreal.

One came on an empty-netter, but Nelson will certainly take it, as this marks Nelson's first multi-point effort since Feb. 6 against the Leafs; he managed just two points over eight games in between. Even so, with 22 games left on the schedule, Nelson needs only eight points to match his career-high 42, set two seasons ago.

Sonny Gray Headshot

Gray had mixed results in his one inning of work in intrasquad play Thursday, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

The A's' ace is slated to open Monday's Cactus League tilt versus the Giants, and also got in some game action Thursday by firing one frame in an intrasquad tussle. Gray gave up a run on an RBI double to right-center by Mark Canha, but also fanned Ryon Healy with an impressive breaking ball. Manager Bob Melvin was pleased with Gray's effort overall despite the aforementioned hiccup, and the 27-year-old will try to build on Thursday's results with a strong outing Monday.

LeBron James Headshot

James notched 18 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds, 15 assists and three blocks across 37 minutes in Thursday's 119-104 win over the Knicks.

James took full advantage of the jumbled situation in New York, posting a convincing triple-double while Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose struggle to find their footing. He remains a must-start in all formats.

Kyle Korver Headshot

Korver notched 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-10 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and one steal, over 31 minutes in Cleveland's 199-104 victory over the Knicks.

While it was expected that Channing Frye would absorb most of Kevin Love's minutes, it appears that Korver is also making a case for increased time. When he's hot, Korver is an excellent source for threes, and a deep sleeper while Love is out.

Axel Toupane Headshot

Toupane singed a 10-day contract with the Bucks on Tuesday, Chris Reichert of The Step Back reports.

The second-year man was waived by the Nuggets just before the beginning of the regular season. Since, he has spent time with the Toronto Raptors 905, averaging 16.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.2 steals per game through 28 contests. The Bucks parted ways with newly required Roy Hibbert earlier on Tuesday, leaving an empty spot on the roster. Toupane isn't likely to see any major minutes right off the bat.
12:26 am (EST)
Courtney Lee Headshot

Lee (illness) posted 25 points (10-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 36 minutes in Thursday's 119-104 loss to the Cavs.

Lee's increase in minutes was likely due to a scrambling of the Knicks lineup, where they elected to showcase Carmelo Anthony on t e cusp of the trade deadline. If there is a shake-up for the Knicks, Lee is an under-the-radar sleeper, as the Knicks desperately need another consistent scoring threat,
12:19 am (EST)
Josh Bailey Headshot

Bailey picked up a pair of assists -- one on an empty-netter -- and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's victory over the Canadiens.

Life's grand again for Bailey, who's posted consecutive two-point efforts on the heels of a seven-game slump in which he picked up just one lonely assist. Playing with John Tavares sure has its benefits.
12:10 am (EST)
Valtteri Filppula Headshot

Filppula picked up an assist Thursday in a loss to Calgary. It was just his second point in 11 games.

Flip has been struggling offensively since Jan. 24. He has just six shots in those 11 games -- the same number as hits in that span. Filppula has managed to put up more point to this point (34 in 58 games) than he did in 76 games last season (31). Still, there's minimal value in his game right now.
12:08 am (EST)
John Tavares Headshot

Tavares notched an assist and an empty-net goal in Thursday's 3-0 win over Montreal.

Sure, this secondary helper and unchallenged goal aren't the two most impressive points of Tavares' career, but there's no stopping his second-half hot streak. Through the season's first 39 games, Tavares posted a modest (by his standards) 27 points; in the 21 games since, he's ripped off a dozen goals and a baker's dozen of assists. He's given us no reason to think he'll slow down now.
12:07 am (EST)
Clint Capela Headshot

Capela provided 15 points, (7-8 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and three blocks over 19 minutes in Thursday's 129-99 victory over the Pelicans.

Though the Rockets started Nene, it appears obvious that coach Mike D'Antoni prefers seeing Capela off the bench in lieu of Montrezl Harrell. Keep an eye on this situation as the new-look Rockets takes shape.
