Richard Jefferson played 31 minutes in a start for LeBron James (illness) against the Bulls on Saturday, scoring nine points with three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

LeBron has strep throat, but chances are he should be well enough to play on Monday against the Bucks. If not, Jefferson would still only be a desperation play in DFS or as a streamer. There are only seven games on Monday, though.

Thaddeus Young was held to two points on 1-of-2 shooting vs. the Heat on Saturday.

After only attempting seven shots on Friday, Young may not be completely comfortable out there -- he said after Friday's game that his wrist still feels sore. Young played 26 minutes and added five rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks, and while you shouldn't drop him, it's not a bad idea to bench him until he proves that he's healthy.

Myles Turner scored 18 points vs. the Heat on Saturday, shooting 8-of-19 from the field.

The 19 shot attempts were one short of a career-high, as Turner was forced to be more aggressive with Paul George getting ejected early in the third quarter. Turner grabbed seven rebounds with one assist, two steals and block, and he hit a pair of free throws as well. His fantasy owners can look forward to a great matchup with the Rockets on Monday -- Houston is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to centers this season.

Kyle Korver scored 14 points with two rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

He did suffer a minor right knee injury and was flexing his leg on the bench in the fourth quarter. There's no reason to be alarmed just yet, but maybe the Cavs take it easy on their 35-year-old sharpshooter. Korver is a fine 3-point specialist in standard leagues, especially when he's so hot right now.

Carmelo Anthony carried the Knicks during a 110-109 win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 37 points with six rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He hit a jumper over Robert Covington with 0.3 seconds left to give the Knicks the lead for good. After the game, Melo sounded very confident and said he had just enough space to get the look he needed (video in link below). Anthony is a better shooter when he's not next to Kristaps Porzingis with better percentages in mid-range, the left corner, right corner and above the break compared to when he's not with KP. Regardless, Melo should be firing away as long as he's active.
Feb 25 - 11:07 PM

Tyler Johnson struggled vs. the Pacers on Saturday with five points on 0-of-5 shooting.

This was easily one of his worst games of the season and he also missed a few 3-pointers, but the good news is that he still played 31 minutes. Johnson added four assists, one rebound and a block, but his owners should cut him some slack after he scored 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers against the Hawks on Friday. Hang onto him and expect him to bounce back vs. the Mavericks on Monday.
Feb 25 - 11:06 PM

Willy Hernangomez scored 11 points with nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 23 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

It was one of his worst games of the season with Jahlil Okafor having some success against him. Joakim Noah (hamstring) is not expected to play on Monday and there's a chance Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is out again, so Hernangomez should remain owned in standard leagues.
Feb 25 - 11:02 PM

Josh Richardson had another quiet game on Saturday vs. the Pacers with two points in 14 minutes.

He shot 1-of-3 from the field and added four rebounds with one assist. We were expecting his minutes to trend up tonight, but he picked up four fouls and never got it going. Dion Waiters is on some kind of heater right now and had another big game with 22 points, so Richardson's fantasy appeal is dwindling.
