Friday's Pickups of the Day

The All-Star Game is just asking for trolls. Obviously, the coaches are outstanding at what they do, but I’m not too sure about how they are at voting. I still don’t get how Kyle Lowry, Anthony Davis or Goran Dragic didn’t make it. Mike Conley also should have been in. Obviously, Lance Stephenson not getting in over Joe Johnson is crazy talk.
 
Also, I went stat crazy on the blurbs on Thursday night, so go ahead and check those out. You might as well follow me on Twitter @MikeSGallagher. OK, that's enough. You can't spell Mike without me, apparently.
 
Editor's Note: Rotoworld's partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $90,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Friday night's games. It's $25 to join and first prize is $10,000. Starts at 7pm ET on Friday. Here's the FanDuel link.
 

Markieff Morris - Coach Jeff Hornacek’s trust in ‘Kieff seems to be growing. 

Evan Fournier - I'd expect him to get most of Nate's minutes.

J.R. Smith - He's telling people to pipe down these days, scoring 19 points with four boards, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers. I wouldn't call him a must-own guy, but he's kinda hot.

 
Tim Hardaway Jr. - He scored a career-high 29 points vs. Cleveland. Sure, it's Cleveland, but it's still very impressive.
 
Jordan Farmar - I would take him for the upside over Blake.
 
Steve Blake - Of course, I could be wrong considering Blake was dynamite in assists. In fact, if you need dimes, get Blake.
 
Harrison Barnes - He scored 10 points, but he can't score off the dribble at all.
 
Marcus Morris - The 16 points is nice, but the 21-minute effort is not.
 
Drops
 
Derrick Williams is toast with Rudy Gay back.
 
Tyler Zeller can't do anything on offense.
 
Ramon Sessions might take a big hit on Friday with Kemba Walker back.
