K. Allen - PG
Allen accumulated three points (1-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists, one rebound, and one steal in 15 minutes during Friday's 111-93 loss to the Nuggets.
Allen returned to the lineup following a one-game absence due to an illness. The 26-year-old guard didn't commit any turnovers but struggled from the field. It wasn't long ago that Allen managed a string of five consecutive double-digit scoring performances. Still, he's too inconsistent to rely on in most formats.

D. Gallinari - SF
Gallinari scored a game-high 27 points (11-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 110-108 win over the Cavaliers.
The veteran forward has now scored at least 20 points in eight straight games, averaging a cool 25.0 points, 5.9 boards, 2.8 three-pointers and 2.8 assists over that stretch to help keep a Clippers franchise that has traded away all its signature players somewhat improbably in the playoff picture. The fragile Gallinari is healthy and headed for a career-best season, including his most games played since 2012-13.

J. Vanderbilt - SF
Vanderbilt earned three minutes during Friday's 111-93 win over the Knicks.
Vanderbilt made his 10th appearance of the season but didn't log any stats in this one. Nuggets coach Michael Malone has opted to shorten his rotation lately, and the rookie big man was already on the outside looking in most nights. As a result, with the exceptions of lopsided contests like this one, Vanderbilt will mostly be glued to the bench and shouldn't be relied on for fantasy purposes.

M. Plumlee - PF
Plumlee pitched in 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's 111-93 win over the Knicks.
Plumlee continues to see his minutes overlap some with star center Nikola Jokic, thus affording the 29-year-old backup big man decent playing time. Plumlee had gone eight straight games without reaching double figures in scoring. Nevertheless, he has still been producing quality contributons across several other categories (boards, dimes, blocks) and remains a fairly solid fantasy option, especially in deeper leagues.

T. Ross - SG
Ross scored a game-high 31 points (10-15 FG, 8-12 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding seven rebounds and a steal in 36 minutes off the bench during Friday's 123-119 overtime win over the Grizzlies.
The eight made three-pointers were a season high for Ross, who dropped 30-plus points for the third time this season -- with all three performances coming since the beginning of February. He's having a career year as the Magic's sixth man and has been one of the engines of the team's drive for a playoff spot.

N. Jokic - C
Jokic collected 21 points (8-20 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 17 rebounds, and five assists in 28 minutes during Friday's 111-93 win over the Knicks.
Jokic compiled plenty of counting stats despite not needing to play his usual load of minutes in the blowout victory. With the Nuggets and Warriors sporting identical 49-22 records and fighting for the top seed in the Western Conference, Jokic and company can be expected to keep the pedal to the metal down the stretch.
Added 1:05 am (EST)
E. Fournier - SG
Fournier scored 27 points (9-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT) while adding eight rebounds, six assists and a block in 39 minutes during Friday's 123-119 overtime win over the Grizzlies.
The performance was even more impressive considering he failed to score a point at all in 14 minutes the last time he faced Memphis back on March 10. Fournier is now averaging 14.3 points, 3.9 boards, 3.6 assists and 2.3 three-pointers over the last 10 games, but he might need a few more nights like this one if the Magic are going to sneak into the postseason.

J. Murray - PG
Murray managed 18 points (7-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks in 33 minutes during Friday's 111-93 win over the Knicks.
Murray recorded two rejections for the second straight night (and the fourth time this season), and it's also the 11th time this season that Murray has swiped at least two steals. The 22-year-old point guard is well known for his offensive contributions, but continuing to improve on the defensive end would catapult Murray to a much loftier status overall at one of the league's deepest positions.
