Michael Beasley scored 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, two steals, one block and four turnovers in 23 minutes off the bench.

Khris Middleton replaced Beasley in the starting five for Sunday's game, but Middleton will be rested on Monday, meaning Beasley has a good chance of returning to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Cleveland. However, Beasley doesn't do much aside from score, so he's not necessarily a "must-own" guy in standard leagues.
Feb 26 - 7:41 PM

Mike Conley posted 31 points, five assists, four rebounds and two steals with just one turnover over 35 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 road victory against the Nuggets.

Conley has 30 or more points in six outings this season after posting just five 30-plus performances over his first nine NBA seasons combined. He has three of those performances over his past 11 games, too. The Ohio State product is on pace for career highs in points per game and rebounds this season. He is also well ahead of his career average of 1.2 triples per contest, hitting 2.3 per from behind the perimeter through 48 games.
Feb 26 - 7:39 PM

Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

Over the past few weeks, Monroe has averaged 30.0 minutes a night and he’s responded with averages of 17.5 points, 9.3 boards, 2.5 dimes, 2.0 steals and 2.3 turnovers per game on 59.6 percent shooting, which has been good enough for top-25 value in standard 9-cat leagues. The sky-high shooting is probably unsustainable, and Jason Kidd has some of the most unpredictable rotations in the league, but if Monroe can continue to flirt with minutes in the 30s he could have a strong finish to the year.
Feb 26 - 7:38 PM

Khris Middleton got his first start of the season during Sunday's 100-96 win over Phoenix, registering eight points, seven boards, two assists, one 3-pointer and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

Middleton replaced Michael Beasley in the starting five on Sunday, but he'll be rested for the second leg of this back-to-back set on Monday, meaning Beasley will likely be starting vs. Cleveland tomorrow. Middleton did struggle with his shot a bit in this one, going 3-of-8 from the field, and it could take some time for him to find his footing after spending most of the season watching from the sidelines. Still, he has enough upside to warrant a roster spot in any league.
Feb 26 - 7:33 PM

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 28 points on 11-of-13 shooting during Sunday's 100-96 win over the Suns, to go with eight boards, six assists, two blocks, one steal and four turnovers in 36 minutes.

Antetokounmpo also went 6-of-7 from the charity stripe, giving him a phenomenal 87.1 true shooting percentage to accompany his 27.7 usage rate. The Greek Freak scored 15 points during the third quarter without missing a single shot to help give Milwaukee the lead, and there really wasn't anything Phoenix could do to try and stop him. He ranks No. 3 overall for a reason.

Brandon Knight picked up his second straight DNP-CD on Sunday.

The Suns are shifting to a developmental focus, meaning that Tyler Ulis is now ahead of Knight on the depth chart. Feel free to send Knight to the wire.
Feb 26 - 7:14 PM

Alan Williams had an impressive double-double off the Suns' bench on Sunday, racking up 17 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and two turnovers in a 100-96 loss to the Bucks.

Williams was an efficient 7-of-13 from the field and 3-of-3 from the charity stripe, and the 17 points set a new career-high for the second-year power forward. He's really outplayed started Alex Len over the past two games, and with Williams still only being 24 years old, you could argue that he's in just as much need in development minutes as the 23-year-old Len. Williams is on the radar in deep leagues, but just know that the distribution of the big man minutes in Phoenix could get complicated once Tyson Chandler is brought back into the rotation.
Feb 26 - 7:12 PM

Markieff Morris was ejected from Sunday's game for throwing the ball into the stands in the fourth quarter.

Morris fouled out on the same play anyway, finishing with seven points on 3-of-11 shooting, three rebounds, three steals and one assist. He might face a fine for his actions, but a suspension is extremely unlikely. He should be ready to go vs. Golden State on Tuesday.
