Kawhi Leonard is so good. Remember when people were saying the Spurs are done? Yeah, #HotTakesTwitter is still not a place I'd like to be. The Spurs have one of the best players in the NBA and it's not even one of their three Hall of Fame guys. Kawhi is the captain now. Meanwhile, there were not many pickups on Wednesday considering it was a 13-game night.

Also, the Mavs are going to rest guys, so owners in daily leagues will want to watch for J.J. Barea, Al-Farouq Aminu, Devin Harris and maybe even Charlie Villanueva.

 

Greg Monroe - He's back.

 

Robert Covington - He's been dropped in a lot of leagues.

 

Derrick Rose - He's back, so pick him up. Don't have high expectations, though.

 

Randy Foye - So underrated.

 

Bismack Biyombo - I'm not usually a Bizzy B guy, but he is blocking a lot.

 

Gerald Green - He scored a season-high 30, but we still can't trust him.

 

Bojan Bogdanovic - Bogey is getting consistent minutes.

 

Pat Patterson - His shot isn't falling yet, but I'd guess he's due for a couple nice games this weekend.

 

Mike Muscala - M. Bison? He should be solid as long as Millsap is out.

 

Paul George - He should be in the 15-20 minute range.

 

Tyler Hansbrough - He should be a 10-8 guy, but he's been a lot better now.

 

Taj Gibson - He's getting solid minutes. Could Noah rest on Thursday?

 

Jerami Grant - It sounds like Noel is out for Saturday.

 

Jabari Brown - He should get big minutes and who knows how long Jeremy Lin will be out?

 

Boris Diaw - The Spurs probably aren't resting guys.

 

Dwight Buycks - Excite Buycks!

 

Aron Baynes - Tiago Splitter will likely miss more time.

 

Henry Sims - His upside is too low.

 

Evan Fournier - He should play 20-25 minutes going forward.

 

P.S. Jason Kidd is going to annoy us for a long time.
