Allen Crabbe- He didn’t play well, but saw 36 minutes with Evan Turner (ankle) out.

 
Moe Harkless- He’s quietly having a top-60 season in standard leagues. Should already be owned.
 
Ty Lawson- I’m not picking him up yet, but that’s two solid games in a row for Lawson. Just keep an eye on him.
 
Will Barton- It sounds like he could be traded to either the Pelicans or Wizards. 
 
Jamal Murray- If Barton is moved, Murray will get his minutes.
 
Austin Rivers- Doc Rivers said he will start some games moving forward depending on the matchup.
 
Nene and Montrezl Harrell- With Clint Capela (leg) out several weeks, Nene and Montrezl Harrell will split the center minutes. I’m not ready to pick either of them up in standard leagues.
 
Sam Dekker- He might get a little extra burn if Ryan Anderson plays more center.
 
Patty Mills- He’s still a lot more fun to own than Tony Parker.
 
Danny Green- Second strong game in a row.
 
Kelly Olynyk- Played 26 minutes in the overtime win and probably earned himself more minutes next to Al Horford.
 
James Ennis- He’s starting now, but the return of Chandler Parsons (knee) will hurt him.
 
Troy Daniels- Too little, too late. Awesome game with 24 points, but Parsons is likely back Wednesday.
 
Iman Shumpert- If you need a warm body in a very deep league, Shumpert should benefit with J.R. Smith reportedly suffering a broken thumb on his shooting hand. 
 
Channing Frye- If we learn that Kevin Love (knee) will miss more time, Frye will be a nice add. 
 
John Henson- Awesome game, make sure nobody in your league dropped him.
 
Justise Winslow- Played 47 minutes in the double-overtime loss. His wrist must be fine.
 
Tyler Johnson- Scored a career-high 32 points, but he’s likely owned in competitive leagues.
 
Josh Richardson- Don’t give up on him.
 
Elfrid Payton- Why is D.J. Augustin still starting?
 
C.J. Miles- A solid add with Monta Ellis (groin) and Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) out a while. 
 
Joakim Noah- I’ll need to see it again, huge bust this season.
 
Justin Hamilton- He’s back in the rotation and played well, but Brook Lopez was rested.
 
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson- He’s going to be a fantasy star some day. More minutes, please.
 
Norman Powell- If DeMarre Carroll ever goes down, Powell will be a stud. He looked great Tuesday, but Patrick Patterson was rested.
 
Luol Deng- I hate his outlook for the second half of the season, but he’s producing right now.
 
Jordan Clarkson- Someone asked me if Clarkson was a drop candidate this week. The answer is no. 25 points and seven triples. 
 
Marco Belinelli- He keeps taking minutes away from Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
 
Terrence Jones- He’s been inconsistent, but he can go off on any night.
 
E’Twaun Moore- Scored a very fluky 15 points. I’ll pass with Tyreke Evans (rest) playing on Wednesday.
