Avery Bradley returned from his achilles injury on Monday and played just 15 minutes, finishing with six points, two 3-pointers and three steals.

Coach Brad Stevens said he was "tempted" to play Bradley more minutes tonight, but the plan going in was for 15 minutes. His minutes should increase a bit going forward until he's back to full speed and his return will eventually hurt Marcus Smart, but he came through with 16 points in 28 minutes tonight. Bradley had been out for his last 23 games with his injury.

Isaiah Thomas hit just 4-of-21 shots and 1-of-6 3-pointers on Monday, but still finished with 19 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and a block in a 114-98 loss to the Hawks.

Thomas hit 10-of-10 free throws to help salvage his line, but also committed seven turnovers, which tied his season high. Thomas has been killing it and is in the MVP conversation this season, but the Celtics didn't have it tonight, as Jae Crowder and Al Horford also shot it very poorly, combing to hit just 5-of-18 shots.

Dirk Nowitzki ended up with just eight points in 26 minutes on Monday against the Heat.

The veteran misfired on seven of his nine field-goal attempts, but he was able to salvage the stat line with 12 rebounds, a blocked shot and an assist in his 26 minutes on the floor. He looked like vintage Dirk for a five-game stretch from Feb. 7-15, but he is back to just 11.3 points per game over his past three outings. While he is a shell of his former self, he remains a useful fantasy option in most formats thanks to his still high rate of rebounds.
Feb 27 - 11:20 PM

Al Horford hit just 3-of-9 shots for six points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in Monday's loss to the Hawks.

No revenge game for Horford tonight and he's officially in a concerning slump, averaging just 7.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.6 blocks on 35 percent shooting over his last five games. He's been especially bad in his last four, scoring in single digits in four straight games for the first time since 2009, but the chances of him breaking out of his funk on Wednesday against Tristan Thompson and the Cavaliers seem to be pretty good.
Feb 27 - 11:13 PM

Jae Crowder hit just 2-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for six points, four rebounds and a block in Monday's 114-98 loss to the Hawks.

He had a seven-point, three-rebound dud on Feb. 16, then played very well in his next two games before tonight's disaster. He's been a bit inconsistent this season, but should be poised to bounce back against the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.
Feb 27 - 11:10 PM

Seth Curry racked up 29 points with three assists, a rebound and just one turnover in 36 minutes Monday night against the visiting Heat.

Curry was on fire from behind the arc, connecting on five of his seven 3-pointer attempts and he added a perfect 4-for-4 night from the charity stripe, too. He isn't quite at brother Steph's superstar level yet, but he has bagged two or more triples in six straight games, and 16 of his past 19 outings. The 'other' Curry has emerged as a bona fide must-start fantasy option across the board.
Feb 27 - 11:02 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. returned to the bench on Monday and hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, four boards, a steal and a block in 27 minutes.

The minutes were there but Hardaway has cooled off over his last four games, scoring between 10 and 15 points in each of them. He was killing it when Thabo Sefolosha was out with his groin injury, but now that he's back and started over THJ tonight, Hardaway's future doesn't look quite as bright as it did a week ago. If Hardaway's your worst player and you want to cut him for a super-hot free agent, it probably makes sense. But generally speaking, Hardaway is still worth hanging onto until we see how this all plays out over the next few games.
Feb 27 - 11:00 PM

Kyle O'Quinn played 15 minutes on Monday vs. the Raptors, finishing with four points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks.

Foul trouble has been an issue all season and he picked up three fouls in 15 minutes in this one. Regardless, KOQ's outlook is promising with Joakim Noah (knee surgery) expected to miss the rest of the season, so if you can put up with some bumps in the road, KOQ has enough upside to warrant a roster spot in standard leagues. He scored nine points with five rebounds, five assists, five steals and two blocks in 25 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.
