Troy Daniels- I’d like him a lot better if James Ennis (calf) and Chandler Parsons (knee) weren’t returning soon.

 
Tony Allen- Similar to Daniels, Allen’s minutes should take a hit soon.
 
Garrett Temple- Played 37 minutes with Rudy Gay (hip) and Omri Casspi (illness) out. Has scored 16+ points in three straight games. Just a short-term add.
 
Kosta Koufos- Scored 16 points with 13 rebounds and three blocks and he might have some value in deeper leagues until the Kings get Gay and Casspi back.
 
Dwight Powell- Outplayed Salah Mejri again. Still no word on Andrew Bogut’s (knee) return.
 
Seth Curry- He had his best game since returning from his knee sprain. Playing behind the oft-injured Deron Williams
 
Shelvin Mack- George Hill (toe) still has no timetable and Dante Exum can’t play offense. 
 
Justise Winslow- The Heat can’t bring him back slowly with Wayne Ellington picking up a hamstring injury. 15 points in 29 minutes.
 
Austin Rivers- Quiet game, but he played 34 minutes in the starting lineup.
 
John Henson and Greg Monroe- Both players are going to trade big games on any given night. 
 
Bobby Portis- Nikola Mirotic was a DNP-CD again and Taj Gibson picked up a hip injury. Free Bobby Portis?
 
Larry Nance- Played 34 minutes and deserved every one of them. Love his upside.
 
Ersan Ilyasova- He’s coming off the bench now, but still has the green light from deep. He took eight triples on Friday.
 
Marco Belinelli- He’s stealing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s minutes and is worth a look in deeper leagues.
 
Jonas Jerebko- Started the second half on Friday and coach Brad Stevens said he could start some games going forward.
 
Kyle Korver- Maybe he can get hot again. Six triples on Friday.
 
Patrick Patterson- Started yet another second half and could hold low-end value until Jared Sullinger (foot) comes back.
 
Cory Joseph- He’s an elite handcuff for Kyle Lowry’s owners.
 
Aaron Gordon- Second solid game in a row, but he should already be owned. 
 
Jon Leuer- He’s a strong Sixth Man of the Year Candidate and should be owned in all standard leagues.
 
Kelly Oubre- Markeiff Morris returned from injury and got into some foul trouble, but Oubre isn’t going away. 34 minutes on Friday.
 
Terrence Jones- Anthony Davis went down with a leg contusion and didn’t return. If AD misses time, Jones will be a monster. Cheick Diallo would also have some nice value in that scenario.
 
Tim Frazier- He was expected to miss 7-10 days with his wrist injury… Guess not.
 
Patrick Beverley- Hard to leave him on the wire after a game like that.
