Coach Brad Stevens said Aron Baynes is dealing with a sore left elbow but has not been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Knicks.

Baynes started on Friday vs. the Pistons, but logged just three minutes before injuring his elbow. Daniel Theis was the primary beneficiary in Baynes' absence. Theis scored 19 points and grabbed seven boards in 21 minutes off the bench. We should have an update on Baynes Saturday afternoon.
Feb 24 - 9:25 AM

Lonzo Ball (knee) returned to action Friday against the Mavericks, posting nine points in 17 minutes off the bench.

Ball was rusty with his shot, hitting 3-of-8 from the field, although his 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line wasn't bad. He also chipped in with seven rebounds and six assists in his limited amount of work, making for a rather impressive overall stat line. He missed six weeks due to a sprained medial collateral ligament, and now he has Isaiah Thomas to contend with for minutes. Ball has already been ruled out for Saturday's game in Sacramento, and it's likely he won't play in back-to-back situations for some time, as the team has plenty of depth to allow him to rest.
Feb 24 - 2:31 AM

Ivica Zubac erupted for 14 points in 18 minutes off the bench in Friday's 124-102 win against Mavericks.

Zubac hit 6-of-7 from the floor while adding six rebounds, an assist and just one turnover. He dumped in a season-high 19 points in the game before the break against the Minnesota Timberwolves and he carried over the momentum despite the interruption from the All-Star break. Zubac still needs to do a little more work to make him a hot pickup in standard leagues, but his fantasy star is certainly rising.
Feb 24 - 2:27 AM

Isaiah Thomas dropped 17 points in 25 minutes off the bench in Friday's 124-102 win against the visiting Mavericks.

Thomas went just 5-of-12 from the field, including 2-of-7 from behind the 3-point line, and he added 5-of-5 from the free-throw stripe. He also chipped in with four assists, two rebounds and two steals. It's going to take some time to jell with his new teammates, and he likely spent a lot of time doing so during the All-Star break. With Lonzo Ball (knee) back in action, there are plenty of mouths to feed and just so many minutes. IT remains more of a mid-round fantasy player as long as he is active, but look for his minutes and playing time to fluctuate based on the health and rest time of others. Ball is out Saturday in the second end of the back-to-back, so that's good news for Thomas.
Feb 24 - 2:24 AM

Josh Hart posted 12 points with 10 rebounds over 34 minutes in Friday's 124-102 victory against the visiting Mavericks.

Hart hit 5-of-13 from the field, including 1-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, and he also chipped in with two assists, a steal and just one turnover while finishing with a plus-24 rating. Hart entered the month of February with just two double-doubles, but he has managed four double-doubles in his eight games since flipping the calendar from January. With Lonzo Ball (knee) back in action, it will likely hurt Hart's value, but so far so good. Head coach Luke Walton certainly has a challenge as far as handling his rotations, however. We'll monitor the situation Saturday in Sacramento.
Feb 24 - 2:22 AM

Brandon Ingram ended up with 15 points in Friday's 124-102 win against the Mavericks.

Ingram was a sharp 6-of-9 from the field, and he added nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocked shots with a team-high tying plus-27 rating in his 29 minutes. The All-Star break did Ingram some good to give him a little rest, and it also helps facing the lowly Mavs out of the gate. The rebound total was his most since he also grabbed nine boards in back-to-back games Jan. 23-26. He'll try to keep it going Saturday in Sacramento. He posted 15 points with five rebounds and five assists in the most recent meeting with the Kings on Jan. 9.
Feb 24 - 2:18 AM

Julius Randle ended up with 18 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists over 30 minutes in Friday's 124-102 victory against the Lakers.

Randle finished 9-of-14 from the field while turning in an impressive plus-27 rating. It was his fifth-career triple-double, and the only thing that went wrong was he ended up 0-of-1 from the free-throw line. But that's splitting hairs. Randle certainly looked rejuvenated after the All-Star break. He has made at least seven successful field goals in nine consecutive outings. He'll look to keep it rolling Saturday in Sacramento against the NBA's 20th-ranked scoring defense.
Feb 24 - 2:13 AM

Doug McDermott finished with 10 points off the bench in Friday's road loss against the Lakers.

The former Creighton Blue Jays standout ended up hitting 3-of-6 from the field, all from behind the arc, and he made his only free-throw attempt. McDermott is likely to get an extended look down the stretch, as head coach Rick Carlisle indicated before the All-Star break that he is eager to see what the 3-point specialist can do. McDermott is worth grabbing for help in deeper fantasy formats.
