Marcus Smart- Finished with 12 points, 10 assists, three steals and two treys. He’s the pickup of the night and should get at least two more starts with Jae Crowder (ankle) out. 

Kelly Olynyk _ If Al Horford (concussion) doesn’t return on Saturday, Olynyk is very interesting. 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three treys in 30 minutes.
Lucas Noguiera- Even with Jonas Valanciunas (knee) back, “Bebe” played 27 minutes and closed the game. Dwane Casey likes his “defensive mobility.”
Tomas Satoransky- John Wall (rest) and Bradley Beal (hamstring) are likely sitting out on Saturday. Big minutes coming for Tomas.
C.J. Miles- He’s starting over Monta Ellis now. Had 13 points in 30 minutes. 
Ersan Ilyasova- He’s outplaying Dario Saric right now. Scored 14 with 11 rebounds and three triples in 24 minutes. 
D.J. Augustin- Elfrid Payton hasn’t been bad, but the Magic need a spark. Augustin had 19 points, three assists and three triples. 
Domantas Sabonis - He’s a top-five rookie in terms of fantasy value. Hit four treys, played 28 minutes. Role looks safe. 
Andre Roberson- Very good performance, but so inconsistent.
Allen Crabbe- More minutes coming his way with Al-Farouq Aminu injury. Also, Meyers Leonard is now worth a look in deeper leagues.
