Who is trending up? Which rotations are changing? What's the latest with the notable injuries around the NBA?
Here's a look around the league at the most fantasy relevant news and notes for all 30 teams:
Since returning from a knee injury, Bogdan Bogdanovic has played exceptionally well. In the last eight games, he's averaged 16 PPG and 3.1 3PG while averaging 30 MPG. Consider adding Bogdanovic to your fantasy basketball squad if you need help with those two categories. As of Wednesday, 37.5% of ESPN leagues still have him available.
Derrick White has been an excellent addition to the Celtics since the trade deadline. During the last three games, he averaged 11.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 4.3 APG, 2.0 SPG and 1.3 BPG. White's ability to provide a full stat line is highly sought after in fantasy basketball, and since Marcus Smart is dealing with an ankle injury, his ceiling might be even higher.
It should be no surprise if Andre Drummond puts together some excellent fantasy performances when provided ample minutes with the Nets the rest of the season. The change of scenery is a good thing for him. Per 40 minutes, Drummond has averaged 18.8 PPG and 24 RPG. He's available in 54% of ESPN leagues.
In his last two games for the Hornets, Montrezl Harrell has been outstanding. He's averaged 16 PPG and 8.0 RPG while shooting 66.7% from the field. For the rest of the season, Harrell should be held onto in all leagues. He's still available in 11% of ESPN leagues, so pick him up if he's not rostered in yours.
On Wednesday night, Coby White (available in 76.7% of ESPN leagues) scored a season-high 31 points against the Kings. It's possible he and Zach LaVine can coexist upon LaVine's return. Remember that Alex Caruso and Lonzo Ball are out with injuries.
Kevin Love reached 14,000 career points against the Hawks on Tuesday night. There are currently only 21 other players on NBA rosters who have reached this milestone. Love has averaged 15.6 PPG, 7.4 RPG and 2.1 APG over the last seven games. Love remains available in 67.4% of ESPN leagues.
Maxi Kleber (available in 98% of ESPN leagues) should be rostered in most leagues now that Kristaps Porzingis is no longer in Dallas. In the last two games, he has averaged 9.5 PPG, 7 RPG, and 2.5 BPG. Kleber has provided top-50 value over the last two weeks, and the rest of the season looks promising for him.
For most of the season, Jeff Green has been a deep league asset. Still, it's surprising that he's available in 98.4% of ESPN leagues. The veteran forward has averaged 13.7 PPG, 3.3 RPG and 2.7 APG over the past three games. Additionally, the Nuggets rank 10th in points scored per 100 possessions, which doesn't hurt the production of guys like Green.
Saddiq Bey has provided fantasy managers with electrifying highs in category formats and soul-crushing lows this season. With that said, Bey had an excellent eight-game run, scoring 20 points in six of them. He's available in 30% of ESPN leagues. Even so, I'd be remiss if I did not mention Bey has shot 39% this season. So proceed with caution.
According to reports, Draymond Green is a few weeks away from returning. Due to this, Jonathan Kuminga will still be a very good streamer. In the last three games, the promising rookie forward has averaged 15 PPG, 5.3 RPG and 1.0 BPG in 29.7 MPG. Go get Kuminga. He's available in 93.6% of ESPN leagues.
Having Kevin Porter Jr. on your fantasy hoops team is not for the faint of heart considering all of the statistical ups and downs. Over the last eight games, he's averaged 16 PPG and 7.1 APG. With the Rockets defensively allowing the most points allowed per 100 possessions, Houston will need him to score early and often. Porter is still available in 33.3% of ESPN leagues.
In the Pacers frontcourt rotation, Oshae Brissett has become more fantasy relevant since the departure of Domantas Sabonis and with Myles Turner still out due to a foot injury. Over Indiana's last four games, he has averaged 16 PPG and 8 RPG. Brissett is available in 87.6% of ESPN leagues.
Over the past eight games, Reggie Jackson has played well for the Clippers. He's averaged 18.5 PPG, 6.1 APG and 4.3 RPG while shooting 45.7% from the field. Jackson is available in 30% of ESPN leagues and is worth considering if available.
On Wednesday night, Anthony Davis appeared to suffer a serious ankle injury against the Jazz. Davis will reportedly miss a minimum of two weeks, but a lengthier absence is quite possible given his history of injuries this season. Malik Monk is a player I'd consider adding to my fantasy team in the mean time. In the last five games, he has averaged 17.8 PPG, 3.4 RPG and 3.4 APG in 30.6 MPG, and he should see a lot of time on the court.
Brandon Clarke (available in 54.5% of ESPN leagues) has averaged 14 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 2.0 APG, 1.0 SPG and 1.0 BPG in 23.4 MPG during the month of February. He's provided fifth-round fantasy value over that time frame and is able to provide full stat lines. Get him while you can.
The quality of play of Bam Adebayo has trended upward at the right time for fantasy managers. In six of his last seven games, he has recorded a double-double. The All-Star break comes at a good time for the Heat, since Jimmy Butler has a shoulder injury, Caleb Martin has a sore Achilles, and Tyler Herro has right knee soreness.
It is a blessing to be able to watch a player of Giannis Antetokounmpo's caliber. On Tuesday night against the Trail Blazers, he scored 50 points and collected 14 rebounds. It was Antetokounmpo's sixth 40-point, 10-rebound game of the season. The only other player with more is Joel Embiid (8).
Over the last eight games, Jaden McDaniels has been sensational. In 28.7 MPG, he has averaged 12.5 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 1.4 APG, 1.0 SPG and 1.0 BPG. It appears that McDaniels is supplanting Jarred Vanderbilt in the Timberwolves' rotation, and the rangy second-year forward is available in 97.5% of ESPN leagues.
If you were worried that CJ McCollum wouldn't fit in with the Pelicans, you can rest easy now. Over the last four games, he's averaged 26 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 5.5 APG and 1.3 SPG in 36 MPG. As the Pelicans compete for the final play-in tournament spot, the team should remain competitive. This is good news for McCollum's fantasy value.
This Knicks team can't seem to find its way out of quicksand after blowing three 20-point leads in seven games. After underperforming for most of the season, Julius Randle has rebounded nicely as of late. During his last seven games, the point-forward has recorded one triple-double and five double-doubles.
Josh Giddey is the second rookie in NBA history to record three consecutive triple-doubles, after Oscar Robertson. Somehow, he's still available in 32% of ESPN leagues. In other news, Theo Maledon had a season-high 22 points on Wednesday night against the Spurs and should remain on your radar.
Jalen Suggs averages 18.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 5.7 APG and 1.3 SPG in 32 minutes per game over his past three games. Since the Magic have 13 wins this season, the rookie is likely to receive all the minutes he can handle the rest of the season. Suggs is still available in 34% of ESPN leagues.
Matisse Thybulle is someone to prioritize in deeper formats because of his defensive capabilities, particularly in steals and blocks. Over the last four games, he's averaged 6.3 PPG, 1.0 RPG, 1.5 APG, 2.5 SPG and 1.0 BPG. Thybulle is available in 93% of ESPN leagues and there isn't a bigger defensive specialist in the league than the University of Washington product.
On Wednesday night, Chris Paul injured his right hand against the Rockets. While the severity of his injury is unknown at the time of writing this article, it is very important. Here are some statistics that quantify Paul's impact on the Suns. When he is on the court, the Suns average 117.4 points per 100 possessions. Phoenix only averages 110.7 points per 100 possessions when he is not on the court.
Since arriving in Portland, Justise Winslow has had a career renaissance. It's been four games where he's averaged 13.3 PPG and 7.3 RPG in 32 MPG. For the remainder of the season, Winslow should provide fantasy managers with consistent minutes and production if he can stay healthy, which has been difficult for him over the course of his career. He's available in 89% of ESPN leagues.
Fantasy managers have been dancing in the streets over De'Aaron Fox's recent performances. During the past five games, he has averaged 28 PPG, 5.0 RPG and 5.0 APG. Please snap up Donte DiVincenzo, who's available in 63.4% of ESPN leagues. His workloads over the last two games indicate he'll have a major role for the Kings.
Devin Vassell is starting to heat up and provide us glimpses of what he's capable of. Vassell averaged 14.4 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 3.4 APG, and 1.0 SPG over the last five games, and the second-year swingman is available in 87.4% of ESPN leagues. Don't let him get away!
This season, Pascal Siakam has been a revelation. In the last 15 games, he averaged 23.7 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 6.0 APG and 1.4 SPG. Those are impressive numbers for a big man. The stellar play of Siakam should continue for the rest of the season, even after the Raptors added some veteran depth to the frontcourt with Thaddeus Young joining at the trade deadline.
After recovering from a calf injury, Rudy Gobert has returned to the fold. He averaged 9.5 PPG and 9.0 RPG in his first two games back, despite playing on a minutes restriction. Following the break, Gobert shouldn't experience any limitations and can be counted on to approach his season averages (15.7 PPG, 14.8 RPG, 2.3 BPG).
The look of the Wizards has changed following the trade deadline. With Bradley Beal out for the season with a wrist injury, Raul Neto has averaged 13 PPG and 5.3 APG in 30 MPG over Washington's last four games. In the wake of Washington's decision to move on from Spencer Dinwiddie and Aaron Holiday, he appears to be the Wizards guard to have on your fantasy roster down the stretch. Neto is available in nearly all ESPN leagues.
