Giannis Antetokounmpo - No doy.

 

Jimmy Butler - Vastly under-owned.

 

Miles Plumlee - He's hot again. Professor Plumlee had eight points, 12 boards, one steal and three blocks.

 

Andray Blatche - This is your friendly reminder to pick up AB in AL (all leagues).

 

Gerald Green - He could be in line for more minutes with Eric Bledsoe sidelined with a knee injury. He had an off game vs. the Grizzlies with nine points, two rebounds, three assists, four steals and one 3-pointer.

 

Luke Ridnour - You are at the mercy of Larry Drew. As a quick aside, 'The Mercy of Larry Drew' sounds like a scary movie title. Anyway, Luke had 12 points, eight dimes, one steal and three boards.

 

Kris Humphries - He had his second game in a row on Thursday with nine points, 11 boards, three assists, two steals and four block in 26 minutes. It's not going to be easy to pick him up in most leagues, though.

 

Tony Wroten - Not sold, but he looked great with 21 points, four boards, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. 

 

Marco Belinelli - Fantasy owners should trust Pop like... actually I can't complete this simile. It's that bad. Bello had a career-high 32 points with five boards, two assists and six treys. I'm not excited and I would rather own Danny Green.

 

Draymond Green - He's getting minutes down the stretch now with the Warriors and the thought of Andrew Bogut going down is a promising idea. He finished with four points, seven boards, three assists, one block and two turnovers.

 

Iman Shumpert - I'm definitely not sold after his 27-point ridiculous game. 

 

Andrei Kirilenko - He's playing better and is up to 15 minutes per game. Strangely enough, his minutes are eating into Mirza Teletovic's big time.

 

Toure Murry- Hip-hop Toure! I feel like he's going to take playing time from Beno Udrih.

 

Chris Douglas-Roberts - He scored 20 points thanks to garbage time, adding four boards, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers. 

 

Jimmer Fredette - Nope.

 

Andrew Nicholson - In case Vucevic misses time, Nicholson could be a factor. He had 12 points, six boards, one block and one turnover in 20 minutes.

 

Jason Maxiell - He played a whopping 43 minutes against the Cavs, scoring six points with six boards, two assists, two steals and three blocks. Nikola Vucevic's ankle sprain isn't serious, so there's no reason to pick him up.
