Brook Lopez scored just nine points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

It's just the seventh game Lopez has played the second half of a back-to-back set, but it's worth a mention he did play in the last set earlier this month. Losing 16 games straight has to be taking its toll on Brook, but this dud is a fluke for one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference. He should flirt with early-round value, but the possible rest is going to be very annoying going forward.

Sean Kilpatrick scored 15 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

Its' just the fourth double-double of his career, but he was not exactly playing well coming into this game. In his previous February games, he averaged just 9.4 points, 3.1 boards, 1.7 assists, 0.2 steals and 1.7 treys on 37.3 percent from the field. Kilpatrick's ceiling also goes down with Jeremy Lin back, so leave him on the wire for now.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 13 points with five rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The Nets actually used him off the ball a little during this game due to their lack of wings. Dinwiddie also did have a minor left knee injury in this game, but he did play through it -- he tore his left ACL in college. With Jeremy Lin back, it'll be tough to use Dinwiddie most nights. Although, Lin should rest here and there.

Joe Harris scored eight points in a start against the Warriors on Saturday, adding one rebound, one assist, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

He actually had a block on a driving JaVale McGee tonight -- don't tell Shaq. Harris should be moving back to the bench for the next game with Caris LeVert (illness) not playing tonight. Harris is only worth a look in deep leagues.

K.J. McDaniels played two minutes in his Nets debut on Saturday.

It was only garbage time for McDaniels. He could get minutes at some point down the line, especially when the Nets rest players. Just keep an eye on the shot-blocking wing.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 18 points during a 96-83 win over the Pelicans Saturday, adding nine rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

It is likely going to be his last start at center with Nerlens Noel set to take over that spot, but coach Rick Carlisle suggested Dirk will be sliding to the four. "I don't see Dirk coming off the bench as a good option," Carlisle said. "I don't see it in my wheelhouse." Nowitzki has sneakily been a top-50 player in his last 20 active games, so his patient owners are seeing some nice dividends.

Brandon Rush played 33 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday, but missed all five of shots and failed to score.

He finished with five rebounds and two assists. He was averaging 27.0 minutes per game in February prior to tonight, but he might be the least productive starter in the league with averages of 5.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in that span. There's no fantasy value here.

Nerlens Noel looked good off the bench in his Mavs debut on Saturday, scoring nine points with 10 rebounds, one block and one steal in 30 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

It's just the third time all season he's hit the 30-minute mark. Coach Rick Carlisle said the plan is to start Nerlens Noel very soon and brought him off the bench because he's new, so it looks like that playing time is on the rise, too. Noel himself sounded excited about his new opportunity as a chance to "open his wings" and obviously it's an encouraging start. Noel's fantasy owners have to be pleased with his landing spot and can hope he flirts with early-round value going forward.
