And on to March, in like a lion, out like a lamb. Tony Parker owners? Sorry.... We aren't projecting a replacement as Manu Ginobili should handle the ball more (if healthy) with players like Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard getting a bump in value. The Spurs only have two games this week, so we won't get a clear picture of San Antonio's plans over the next month. A busy week otherwise, with 19 teams having four games on the slate.

Kevin Love Minnesota F/C- Love has been taking part in shootaround's and has said he would like to play in the team's final 15-20 games. Pick him up now as he could return as early as next week (best case scenario). Love is averaging 18 points and pulling down 14 rebounds on the season, numbers anyone could use.
Tobias Harris Orlando F/G- If Harris is still available in your league, the other owners are either A) asleep at the wheel or B) you only have weekly moves and you need to go to the wall for this guy. Harris is averaging 20 points and more than seven rebounds since coming to the Magic Kingdom from Milwaukee.
Danny Granger Indiana F/G- Under the dreaded minutes cap, which makes me thing of Andrew Bogut (shudder). Granger is a real roll of the dice, especially as the Pacers ride newfound star Paul George. Granger had a bit of a setback on Friday night, but that came on the heels of a 12 point performance in only 19 minutes.
Marcus Thornton Sacramento G- Thornton is in the midst of a scoring spree and also delivering from long range. Over his last three contests, Thornton has hit for 36, 20 and 25 points. Thornton isn't a total black hole with the ball with 10 assists over the three game stretch. I mentioned long range... a dozen three's over the stretch with eight during the 36 point effort.
Carlos Delfino Houston F/G- I really enjoy watching the Rockets play and Kevin McHale playing Delfino at the four is ingenious. Delfino is now coming off the bench, but remains a scoring threat. How about 15 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists... and more important 19 bombs over his last five games.
Wilson Chandler Denver F/G- I had the opportunity to watch two Nuggets games last week and they are going to scare some folks in the playoffs. Danilo Gallinari cuts into his production, but George Karl plays at least 10 deep and rides the hot hand, no matter who it is. I am sure you saw Chandler's 35 point game with six three pointers.
Enes Kanter Utah C- Al Jefferson and Paul Milsap remain day to day with injuries, which gives us the scenario we all expected at the trading deadline. I hate to rely on injuries, either a player coming back from... or a player capatilizing due to another player's bumps and bruises. At this point in the season, sometimes gambles are what makes the difference.
