D. Fox - PG
Fox posted 25 points (9-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine assists, six rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Friday's 130-125 loss to the Kings.
Fox is in line to be one of the league's most improved players as he's put together a prolific campaign as the Kings' floor general. The 20-year old's season average of 18.1 points and 7.6 assists has vaulted him into a higher tier among fellow point guards and is a must-start in all formats.

B. Hield - SG
Heild recorded 27 points (11-21 FG, 5-13 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 33 minutes in Friday's 130-125 loss to the Warriors.
The Kings put up a good fight against the Warriors but couldn't quite close out the win. Hield continues to inflict severe damage at the two for the Kings and has emerged as one of their pleasant surprises so far. The long-range sharpshooter has connected on 42.9 percent of his 3-point attempts and currently ranks 10th in the league with 79 treys.

K. Thompson - SG
Thompson tallied 27 points (10-27 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and a steal across 38 minutes in Friday's 130-125 win over the Kings.
Thompson' had some shooting struggles in Friday's game but was a solid contributor overall, logging more minutes on the floor than any player in the contest. He's had a fairly solid month, averaging 21.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists over seven games in December.

D. Green - PF
Green turned in two points (1-3 FG), 14 rebounds, 10 assists and a steal across 31 minutes in Friday's 130-125 win over the Kings.
Even though he only connected on one jumper, Green achieved a rebound-assist double-double and led both teams in those categories. As one of the team's premier defenders, it is going to be scary when DeMarcus Cousins eventually takes the floor. His presence will take some pressure off Green and allow him to become an even more dynamic player.

K. Durant - SF
Durant posted 33 points (9-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 11-12 FT), eight rebounds and eight assists across 37 minutes in Friday's 13-125 win over the Kings.
Durant was one of the only players to make a dent in the Raptors defense on Wednesday, and he continued his solid play in a game that ended up much closer than expected thanks to a sluggish first half for the Warriors. Two less-than-stellar games this week caused his numbers to dip a bit, as he's put up an average of 24 points and seven rebounds over the past four games.

S. Curry - PG
Curry provided 35 points (11-23 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 8-8 FT), seven rebounds, six assists and three steals across 36 minutes in Friday's 130-125 win over the Kings.
Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson had to pull this game out in the final minutes after displaying a lack of focus int on the offensive end of the ball in the first half. Curry led the trio's charge and recovered nicely from his lackluster showing against the Raptors on Wednesday.
Added 8:23 am (EST)
S. Ibaka - C
Ibaka totaled 18 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 128-122 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Ibaka Continued his impressive start to the season Friday despite the loss. He has now scored in double-figures in all but two of his games this season, while also averaging 7.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks. He is the 36th ranked player in standard formats and has been one of the more surprising players across the league.

F. VanVleet - PG
VanVleet ended with 21 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight assists, and four rebounds in 38 minutes during Friday's 128-122 loss to the Trail Blazers.
VanVleet remained in the starting lineup Friday, replacing Kyle Lowry (thigh) who was ruled out prior to tip-off. VanVleet has proven himself more than capable of running the offense and continues to benefit from the injuries to other players. If Lowry is forced to miss another game, VanVleet would become a must-add player.
