M. Scott - PF
Mike Scott (knee) played nine minutes in Friday's win over the Wizards, finishing with two points (1-of-3 FGs), three rebounds and one steal.
Scott's return gives Philadelphia another option at the four, which helps given the knee injury suffered by Ben Simmons. But he isn't much of a factor in fantasy, even with the potential to earn a few more rotation minutes.

M. Belinelli - SG
Marco Belinelli finished Friday's win over the Jazz with eight points (2-of-6 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.
Belinelli was available to play Wednesday, but he did not see any action in the loss to the Nuggets. Belinelli was back on the floor Friday, chipping in with a couple 3-pointers but not doing enough to enhance his fantasy value.

J. Tatum - PF
Jayson Tatum tallied 18 points (7-of-14 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes vs. Toronto.
Since getting his hair cut after a rough 2-of-18 effort in the Celtics’ bubble opener, Tatum has shot 50 percent or better in each of the last four games. He’s right where the Celtics need him to be with the start of the postseason a little over a week away. Tatum could be in for a big night Sunday against the Magic, a team that he dropped a 33/8/5/2/3 with five 3-pointers line on back in February.

J. Brown - SG
Jaylen Brown shot 7-of-14 from the field and 2-of-2 from the foul line in Friday’s win over the Raptors, finishing with 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.
A rather routine night for Brown, who like many of the Celtics’ other key contributors didn’t see much time during the fourth quarter as Boston held a commanding lead. He’s now scored 20 points or more in four of Boston’s five games in the bubble, with the exception being an 18-point effort in the Celtics’ August 4 loss to the Heat. Brown's play could serve as a springboard into both the postseason and the 2020-21 campaign. He's been that good.

F. VanVleet - PG
Fred VanVleet tallied 13 points (4-of-14 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), four rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes Friday vs. Boston.
Outside of Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol, who were both 3-of-6 from the field, Toronto’s starters shot the ball poorly in the blowout loss. VanVleet should be fine however, as he was responsible for 21 points and 10 assists in Wednesday’s win over the Magic. Bad games haven’t been commonplace for the point guard, who will be one of the most sought-after free agents on the market come October.

P. Siakam - PF
Pascal Siakam shot 5-of-15 from the field in Friday’s loss to the Celtics, finishing with 11 points, two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
Siakam did not attempt a free throw in Friday’s blowout loss, something that has happened to him just three times this season. Of greater concern is the fact that he’s only shot 50 percent from the field once in the Orlando bubble. Siakam remains a quality fantasy option, and he’ll look to get back on track Sunday vs. Memphis.

K. Lowry - PG
Kyle Lowry finished Friday’s loss to the Celtics with 11 points (3-of-6 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), two rebounds, two assists, three steals and one blocked shot in 28 minutes.
This was a bad night for Lowry and the Raptors, as the Celtics took control during the second quarter and blew the game open in the third. Lowry’s defensive production was a positive fantasy-wise, but that’s about all that can be taken from this one. The Raptors will look to rebound from their first loss in the bubble Sunday against Memphis.

K. Walker - PG
Kemba Walker (knee) was responsible for 17 points (6-of-14 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), three rebounds, four assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 23 minutes Friday vs. the Raptors.
The plan was for Walker to play no more than 30 minutes Friday night, and with Boston winning in blowout fashion the Celtics were able to get him additional rest late. He’s feeling better, and the issue now is making sure that Walker has his rhythm once the postseason begins. Boston's only complaint about Friday may be the lack of crunch-time minutes for their starting point guard.
