Nikola Mirotic Buls F - He hit 6-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers for 20 points, 10 boards and two steals in 28 minutes. This came on the same day there were rumors of him going to the bench, but it didn't happen and he broke out of a serious funk. Hopefully he can stay hot for a couple weeks this time. 

 

Kent Bazemore Hawks G/F - Bazemore filled the stat sheet with nine points, six boards, three assists, five steals, a block and a 3-pointer before fouling out. He's been on fire for about 10 days now and is an excellent pickup option in all leagues.

 

Nemanja Belijca Wolves PF - He hit three 3-pointers for 11 points, five boards and four assists in a win over the Hawks. He may not blow it up every night, but if you're in a league with a thin wire, he's an excellent pick up right now - especially since the Wolves have four more games this week.

 

J.J. Hickson Nuggets C - Hickson went off for 19 points, 13 boards and three blocks in a start at center for the Nuggets. He'll take a hit once Joffrey Lauvergne or Jusuf Nurkic come back from their injuries, but if you need a short-term big-man fix, Hickson is probably your guy. 

 

Others to consider: Evan Fournier, T.J. McConnell, Jerami Grant, Meyers Leonard, Allen Crabbe, Will Barton, Ian Mahinmi, C.J. Miles
