The Spurs' four-game losing streak ended on Sunday behind LaMarcus Aldridge's 27 points (9-of-20 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), six rebounds, three assists and one block in 37 minutes.

Aldridge missed a few games prior to the break with knee soreness, and it looks like the extended rest did the trick -- in the past two games he's averaged 32.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists. His efforts helped the Spurs avoid their first five-game losing skid since 2010-11, and moved them into a virtual tie with the Timberwolves for the No. 3 seed in the West. That playoff-seeding battle should help Aldridge avoid onerous restrictions and DNPs down the stretch.

Anthony Davis came through with a 27-point, 13-board double-double during Sunday's overtime win in Milwaukee, adding one assist, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 43 minutes.

This was the Pelicans second consecutive overtime win coming out of the All-Star break, and they're now 7-2 in overtime games this season, with all seven of those wins coming against Eastern Conference opponents. AD and Jrue Holiday were huge in helping New Orleans overcome an 18-point halftime deficit, and the Pelicans are now on a five-game win streak, which is the first time the franchise has accomplished that feat under head coach Alvin Gentry.

Kyle Anderson tied his career high with three blocks vs. Cleveland on Sunday, adding 10 points, six rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals.

Anderson shot 4-of-7 from the field without any turnovers in 30 minutes of action. He's not a flashy fantasy option and doesn't offer much in points leagues, but roto owners appreciate his sneaky value. He's managed to post mid-round value with season averages of 8.2 points (52.0% FGs, 74.1% FTs), 0.2 threes, 5.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and just 1.4 turnovers. Just be aware that the Spurs only play twice next week.

E'Twaun Moore scored 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, three rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes.

As an added bonus for 9-cat owners Moore didn't turn the ball over once in this overtime win, and he continues to serve as a reliable source of triples and steals, although the inconsistent scoring constrains his value to deep leagues.
Feb 25 - 6:55 PM

Danny Green returned to action on Sunday with 22 points, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes, making 6-of-11 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs.

Green tied his season-high with five 3-pointers and he fell just shy of his high for scoring (24 points on Nov. 7). This was his first game as a reserve since 2014 and the early results were encouraging -- with Kawhi Leonard (quad) out indefinitely, he could still carve out 24-26 minutes if he sticks in a bench role. He's still just a fringe option better suited to roto leagues.
Feb 25 - 6:53 PM

Jrue Holiday helped lead the Pelicans to victory on Sunday, popping off for 36 points, nine boards, six dimes, two triples, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 42 minutes of action.

Holiday really struggled through the first half of action, but he dominated the second half and overtime, scoring 26 of his 36 points while rocking a ridiculous 44.6 usage rate. This was Holiday's fifth straight 20+ point performance, and the sixth time this season he had 30 points or more, which accounts for the most 30-point games he's had in a single season. After struggling with injuries and various restrictions over the past four seasons, he's finally healthy and having himself a career-year.

Raul Neto (ankle) won't play vs. the Rockets on Monday.

Neto injured himself during shootaround on Friday but his injury doesn't sound too serious. His absence shouldn't impact any fantasy lineups, especially now that Ricky Rubio (hip) is back in action.
Feb 25 - 6:48 PM

Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's overtime win over the Bucks, tallying 16 points, eight rebounds, 12 assists, two triples, two steals and six turnovers in 36 minutes.

February has been Rondo’s best month as he’s come through with averages of 10.7 points, 8.9 dimes, 5.1 boards, 1.1 triple, 1.1 steal and 2.7 turnovers per game on 50.0% shooting from the field and 30.8% from the charity stripe, which has been good enough for top-90 value in 9-cat leagues if you’re punting free throws. Jameer Nelson’s departure has opened up minutes for Rondo, so he should be able to flirt with these numbers to close out the year.
