Emmanuel Mudiay was listed as a DNP-CD for Sunday's 105-98 loss against the Grizzlies.

Mudiay has fallen to third man on the point guard depth chart behind veteran Jameer Nelson and rookie Jamal Murray. There is still plenty of time to go, so don't give up on Mudiay just yet. However, until the pecking order changes it is a good idea for fantasy owners to keep Mudiay reserved in most formats.

John Wall had a mixed game on Sunday, scoring 23 points with 11 assists, three rebounds and four steals, but he also committed nine turnovers.

Wall has at least five first-quarter assists in six consecutive games, and he did his best to carry his team to a win tonight, but their offense wasn't up to snuff at 42.5 percent shooting. His turnovers didn't help matters tonight, but all credit is due to Utah's suffocating team defense. Wall's shot has been off lately, so it was also nice to see him knock down 9-of-18 shots with a pair of 3-pointers tonight.
Feb 26 - 7:56 PM

Bradley Beal got hot after halftime on Sunday, finishing a 102-92 loss to the Jazz with 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting, three 3-pointers, four assists and three rebounds.

Beal struggled with fouls early, playing 11 scoreless minutes in the first half, but his hot streak helped Washington make it interesting after falling into a huge hole. Beal logged 34 minutes without a turnover tonight, and he's been nothing short of terrific in his past 10 games.
Feb 26 - 7:54 PM

Marc Gasol finished Sunday's 105-98 win against the Nuggets with 23 points, six assists, five rebounds and a blocked shot.

Gasol dropped in a trio of 3-pointers in the road win, becoming just the fourth center to post 80 or more successful 3-pointers made this season. He is such a valuable contributor for fantasy owners in most leagues, but especially so in rotisserie formats for his work from behind the arc.
Feb 26 - 7:51 PM

In his second game with the Wizards, Bojan Bogdanovic made 5-of-10 shots with three 3-pointers to score 15 points in 33 minutes.

Bogdanovic added one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block tonight, but supporting stats have never been his strong suit -- he has four blocks all season. He's a good shooter but doesn't really have guys capable of creating open looks for him in the second unit. The minutes were up a bit tonight with Markieff Morris in foul trouble, and fantasy owners can ignore Bojan unless you need points and 3-pointers in a deeper league.
Feb 26 - 7:51 PM

Marcin Gortat finished Sunday's home loss with six points on 3-of-9 shooting, eight rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes.

Rudy Gobert will have that effect on opposing centers -- Utah is limiting opposing Cs to the fewest rebounds and assists, third-fewest points, fifth-fewest blocks, and sixth-fewest steals. That's worth remembering the next time a player is facing Utah in DFS, but Gortat's owners can expect a bounce-back effort on Wednesday vs. the Warriors.
Feb 26 - 7:50 PM

Jason Smith fell out of the Wizards' rotation on Sunday.

Head coach Scott Brooks has praised Smith and spoken about finding minutes for him, but it just isn't happening with Ian Mahinmi back in the lineup. There's no reason to think Smith will re-emerge as an asset in any leagues this season.
Feb 26 - 7:49 PM
Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Rodney Hood pitched in 11 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 27 minutes of action on Sunday.

It's not a bad return for Hood's owners, especially since he scored just three points on 1-of-9 shooting on Friday. The starting job is his to lose and he's shown the ability to produce late-round value when healthy, so it can't hurt to check if he's floating on your waiver wire.
