Ricky Rubio scored just nine points in Monday's game against the Kings but he ended up with 11 assists, five rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot.

Rubio doesn't have to put up huge point totals with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins more than capable of handling those duties. However, what he loses in fantasy appeal in the scoring department he more than makes up for in the assists category. He has 11 or more rebounds in six of his past seven outings, and he is a major contributor with 17 steals during the same stretch.

Lou Williams' 28 points weren't enough in a 117-108 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Williams shot 8-of-15 from the field in the loss with three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and five triples in 28 minutes. He also sank 7-of-8 free throws, but that's nothing new for him as he was averaging 5.9 FTAs per game coming into tonight's contest. He's loving life with his new team and may have more value in Houston than he did in Los Angeles, averaging 24.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 4.7 3-pointers in his last three games.
Feb 28 - 1:03 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 29 points, 17 rebounds, three blocked shots and two assists in 38 minutes on Monday against the Kings.

Towns is averaging 24 points and 12 rebounds overall on the season, but lately he has been ridiculous. He has 17 or more rebounds in four straight games, including a career-best 22 boards in his last outing in Houston Saturday. Over the past four he is averaging 29.0 points and 19.0 rebounds, which is well excess of his already lofty averages in the categories.
Feb 28 - 1:01 AM

Rodney Stuckey scored 17 points with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples in 22 minutes vs. the Rockets on Monday.

It was his best game in a while and he took advantage of some extra touches with Paul George in foul trouble. Stuckey has been hurt for most of the season and competes for touches in a crowded wing rotation, so he can be left on the wire in standard leagues unless he does this a couple more times. He averaged 8.4 points per game in February coming into tonight's game.
Feb 28 - 12:59 AM

Andrew Wiggins finished with 27 points, four rebounds and four steals over 35 minutes in Monday's 102-88 road victory against the Kings.

Wiggins has now scored 25 or more points in nine consecutive games, longest active streak in the NBA. It is also the third-longest streak in the league this season. He also owns the longest active streak with 20 or more points, hitting the mark in 18 straight outings. He is much more than just a scorer, however, as he is working on a streak of 10 in a row with at least one steal, averaging 2.1 thefts per outings during the impressive run. Wiggins also has a 10-game streak with at least one 3-pointer. In other words, he can do it all.
Feb 28 - 12:58 AM

Myles Turner scored just 12 points vs. the Rockets on Monday with six rebounds, one assist and three blocks.

Houston has been torched by opposing centers all season and allowed Karl-Anthony Towns to score 37 points with 22 rebounds on them on Saturday, so it's a shame that Turner didn't make the most out of this dream matchup. He shot 4-of-6 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line which was a huge letdown after he attempted 19 shots in his previous game. Look for Turner to be more aggressive against the Spurs on Wednesday with Paul George expected to have Kawhi Leonard all over him.
Feb 28 - 12:55 AM

Paul George struggled with foul trouble on Monday vs. the Rockets, finishing with 15 points in 30 minutes.

He couldn't find his shot and finished 5-of-16 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, adding seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and three triples. George was ejected on Saturday vs. the Heat and has been a letdown to his fantasy owners for over a week, shooting just 32.4 percent from the field over his last five games. He gets a matchup vs. Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs on Wednesday, so bouncing back won't be easy -- The Spurs allow the second fewest fantasy points to small forwards this season. There's a reason why they call it Kawhian Island.
Feb 28 - 12:50 AM

Monta Ellis flirted with a triple-double on Monday vs. Houston, scoring 12 points with eight assists and seven rebounds.

Paul George was in some foul trouble, so Ellis logged 32 minutes in the win -- his third game with 32+ minutes since the new year. He shot 6-of-8 from the field, but he did turn the ball over six times. Ellis has been trending up for a couple weeks, so give him a look if you need a low-end guard. He's averaging 11.8 points, 6.0 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 0.8 treys over his last five games.
