Terrence Jones- Easily the pickup of the night. Finished with 19 points, seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, four blocks and one trey in 28 minutes. Alvin Gentry admitted after game he needs to play more.
Mike Muscala- He’s still the first big off the bench and had 10 points, seven rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson- Easily the best game of his game career on Friday. Posted 11 points, eight rebounds, six assists, four steals and two treys. So much upside, plenty of minutes.
Sean Kilpatrick- He’s going to eat while Jeremy Lin (hamstring) is out. He had 19 points, four assists and two treys. Getting some PG minutes as well.
Cody Zeller- Low upside, but still no Roy Hibbert (knee) and Zeller had 10 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block.
Josh Richardson (knee)- Only 12 minutes, but the Heat were easing him back into action. Pick him up, unless you believe in Dion Waiters…
Tyler Johnson- He’s still the sixth man and finished with 16 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals, two blocks and four treys. A little fluky, but he can fill it up.
Terrence Ross- DeMarre Carroll might be hurting, and Ross had 20 points and three 3-pointers. Norman Powell would also be interesting if we get bad news on Carroll.
Tyson Chandler- He’s getting it done right now and had 12 points and 18 rebounds. Alex Len will eventually take his minutes when the Suns tank.
Lou Williams- 20 points, four assists, three steals, two treys. Closing out games for the Lakers and shouldn’t be on any wires.
Brandon Ingram- Career-high 12 points, but just keep an eye on him for now. More of a stash.
Larry Nance- Stats don’t lie. He saw 30 minutes on Friday and the Lakers are going to ride him and Julius Randle hard.
Trey Lyles- Not playing well at all, but Boris Diaw is out for a couple weeks and Derrick Favors didn’t look healthy.
Patty Mills- Saw 30 minutes on Friday with 16 points, four treys and three assists. Should keep starting with Tony Parker (knee) out at least a week.
Dwight Powell - Dirk Nowitzki went down again with a sore Achilles and will miss at least a week, so Powell is the next man up. Loaded with upside, but interested to see how many minutes Rick Carlisle gives him. Andrew Bogut (personal) was out Friday.
