Malcolm Delaney made his second NBA start against the Magic on Saturday, scoring two points with four assists in just 15 minutes.
Dennis Schroder came off the bench to give Delaney a big chance again, but it just did not go well for the rookie. We've seen Delaney play well at times and even close games out over Schroder, but we've seen him go through numerous slumps as well. His appeal as a deep handcuff has lost a lot of its luster.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 15 points with three rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.
Even with Thabo Sefolosha back, THJ is expected to stick in the starting lineup for at least one more game. While Hardaway did play well on the offensive end, the Hawks getting blown out in the last two games probably doesn't help his case to start going forward. Although, Dennis Schroder not starting is probably a factor. Hardaway Jr. is still a low-end hold in standard leagues, assuming a hot free agent isn't out there.
Dwight Howard scored 11 points with 14 rebounds, one assist and one block in 29 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.
He still gets the boo birds in Orlando, but he's had some success against his former teams. This season, he's crushed the Lakers with 25.0 points per game, posted 22.0 points per outing against the Rockets and has double-doubled in all four games against the Magic. Howard has trended down slightly, but he's a solid double-double threat on any given night.
Ersan Ilyasova scored just five points with 10 rebounds, two assists , one steal and two turnovers in 25 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.
He had a streak of 41 straight games with a three earlier this year, but now he's had three straight games without one. Clearly, Ilyasova's fantasy value has fallen off in a big way on his new team.
Taurean Prince scored a career-high 11 points with four rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.
The Hawks have a surplus of wings right now with DeAndre Bembry playing well and Thabo Sefolosha returning to action. This will be too much of a hot-hand approach to count on any of these guys in most leagues. Prince has been very inconsistent on the offensive end and it'll take a while before he's a contributor outside of being a glue guy. It's been a solid rookie season, though.
Joe Harris will start for Caris LeVert (illness) on Saturday vs. the Warriors.
LeVert is day-to-day, so there's no need to grab Harris outside of very deep formats. In 10 starts this season, Harris has posted averages of 6.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 triples.
Frank Kaminsky scored a game-high 23 points during a 99-85 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding a career-high 13 rebounds with three assists, two steals and a career-high five 3-pointers.
He's been all the Hornets could've hoped for as a center. Ever since the Hornets got stomped in Oakland on Feb. 1, coach Steve Clifford has talked up how well Kaminsky has performed closer to the basket on defense. On offense, he's really hitting his stride lately, averaging 19.8 points, 7.6 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 steals and 3.0 treys in his last five. While he won't be this good, he has to be owned right now.
Patrick McCaw is starting in place of Kevin Durant (hand) on Saturday vs. the Nets.
It sounds like the Warriors are simply being cautious with Durant against the weakest team in the NBA, so McCaw is just a streaming option in deeper leagues tonight. In three previous starts this season, the rookie averaged 10.0 points, 2.7 assists, 1.7 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.3 3-pointers.
