D. Hunter - SF
De'Andre Hunter made another start on Wednesday and had 21 points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal, two blocks and a 3-pointer on 7-of-12 shooting in a team-high 45 minutes of Wednesday's overtime loss to the Nets.
Shockingly, Hunter has scored in double figures in every single game this season and he's been particularly hot over his last three games, averaging 25.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.7 3-pointers. He's scored 21, 22 and a career-high 33 points in each of his last three games and while he's rostered in 76 percent of Yahoo! leagues, that number could be higher. Make sure he's not on the wire if you play in a smaller league.

P. Millsap - PF
Paul Millsap scored 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting Wednesday, to go with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and two turnovers across 24 minutes in an easy win over the Heat.
The Nuggets have now won five straight, and their defense was excellent tonight, holding Miami to 30-of-80 shooting (37.5%) from the floor and 13-of-45 (28.8%) from 3-point range. Millsap continues to start, but he's been severely outplayed by JaMychal Green lately, and that remained the case tonight with Green tallying 15 points, 10 rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist and one steal in 20 turnover-less minutes off the bench. While Millsap is the starter, Green is the better guy to roster.

J. Harden - SG
James Harden hit 9-of-20 shots, five 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws on his way to 31 points, eight rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, a block and just three turnovers in a tough 132-128 win over the Hawks.
And there it is. Hopefully this is a signal that 'aggressive James Harden' is back and 'passive James Harden' is gone. And he even led the team in shots and minutes, despite playing alongside Kyrie Irving! Kevin Durant had 32 points, five boards, two blocks and three 3-pointers, and Irving added 26 points and seven assists in the win. The Nets will look to make it four in a row on Friday at Oklahoma City.

W. Barton - SF
Will Barton hit 4-of-8 shots for 10 points, three rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers, one block and three turnovers in 21 minutes.
Barton had scored a total of just seven points in his previous two outings, and he looked on track to completely break out of the funk tonight with all 10 of his points coming in his first eight minutes of play, but then he disappeared after that. Some of that may have had to do with the blowout nature of the game, but Barton has been brutally inconsistent this season, and it's fair to wonder just how long he'll be able to keep Michael Porter Jr. out of the starting group. MPJ netted 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting to go with five rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist, four steals and three turnovers in 25 minutes off the bench.

J. Harris - SF
Joe Harris failed to hit a 3-pointer in Wednesday's overtime win against the Hawks, snapping a streak of 79 straight games connecting on a 3-pointer.
Harris had a forgettable night, hitting 3-of-6 shots, going 0-for-3 from downtown and finishing with six points, one rebound, two assists and two steals. One of his 3-pointers at the buzzer looked like it was going down, but it rattled in and out and he was clearly not happy about it. The pressure is off now, so look for Harris to start a new streak on Friday against the Thunder.

C. Boucher - C
Chris Boucher only played 13 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Bucks, scoring 10 points with three rebounds, two blocks and one assist.
Nick Nurse opted to go with Aron Baynes for 23 minutes, tonight, plus 12 small-ball minutes featuring Pascal Siakam or Stanley Johnson at center. Boucher was busy when he was on the court, at least, shooting 3-of-9 from the field with two 3-pointers and zero turnovers. We'll chalk up the playing time to a matchup-based wrinkle from Nurse, since Boucher hadn't played fewer than 20 minutes since Jan. 6. He gets a delectable matchup on Friday against a Kings team that will likely deploy Hassan Whiteside with the second unit.

J. Holiday - PG
Jrue Holiday scored a season-low seven points vs. the Raptors on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one turnover in 35 minutes.
Holiday had his worst shooting game of the season, going 3-of-14 from the field and 1-of-8 from deep. He even blew an easy layup off a nice pass from Giannis late in the fourth, but the Bucks' juggernaut of an offense still piled up 115 points in a road win. Holiday has been flirting with a career-best mark from the field this season (49.3%), and his 38.4% accuracy from deep is the highest since 2013-14. Tonight's struggles were just a speedbump on the road to early-round value.

P. Connaughton - SG
Pat Connaughton had two points, three rebounds and one turnover to his credit in 14 minutes vs. the Raptors on Wednesday.
Connaughton is playing well as a glue-guy off Milwaukee's bench, but his narrowly-defined role prohibits rostering him in almost any format. Interestingly, Connaughton is just 2-of-12 on three-point attempts from 22-24 feet, yet he's a blistering 17-of-30 (56.7%) on shots from 25+ feet. Maybe he should exclusively take step-back triples.
