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.
Feb 25 - 8:50 PM

Kemba Walker scored 12 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

His February is not going well at all. This month, he's averaging just 18.3 points, 4.0 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 treys on 40.1 percent from the field. Walker has really struggled in the paint, making just 21-of-52 (40.4 percent), which is almost 20 percent below league average. The All-Star should snap out of it, so he's a bit of a buy-low player.
Feb 25 - 8:45 PM

Marvin Williams scored 16 points with six rebounds, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He was in some kind of slump heading into the break, but he's out of it to start the second half. Williams played 40 minutes with 13 points on Thursday during a loss to the Pistons. Plus, his minutes are also up because the Hornets are playing Frank Kaminsky at the five now. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 25 - 8:40 PM

Nicolas Batum made 4-of-17 from the field for 15 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He's in another shooting slump, which is nothing new for how he plays. He's made just 30.2 percent from the field in his last three games for his 14.2 points per game. Only 11.6 percent of his shots have been at the rim and he's made just 7-of-33 (21.2 percent) outside of the paint in that span. His owners shouldn't be surprised and just have to hope he snaps out of it the next time out against the Clippers on Sunday.
Feb 25 - 8:35 PM

Christian Wood scored a season-high five points with four rebounds in 10 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He was the first big man off the bench, so this is more non-garbage minutes than he's seen all of this season combined -- he only scored four points all season combined, too. Wood won't have fantasy value and may have to fend off Johnny O'Bryant once he's ready to play.
Feb 25 - 8:30 PM

Ben McLemore scored a team-high 18 points against the Hornets during a 99-85 loss on Saturday, adding two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He played a team-high 33 minutes in this blowout loss. The Kings couldn't crack 20 points in the first and third quarter to put this game out of reach in the fourth. McLemore has clearly taken advantage of injuries to Garrett Temple (hamstring) and Arron Afflalo (hamstring), but he may be able to keep his minutes with the Kings rebuilding. He's still only a deep-league pickup due to a lack of versatility on the stat sheet.
Feb 25 - 8:27 PM

Tyreke Evans started against the Hornets on Saturday, scoring 11 points with five rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 22 minutes.

It was likely a matchup-based move for coach Dave Joerger because of Nicolas Batum. Garbage time did keep Evans' minutes down today, but he did play 16 minutes in the first half. Perhaps the Kings won't be limiting 'Reke as much as the Pelicans. The trade looks like a win for him, but he's likely going to be more of a late-round guy.
