Spencer Dinwiddie scored eight points with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and no turnovers in 23 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.
He is the No. 2 point guard ahead of Isaiah Whitehead for now, but Jeremy Lin being back takes away most of the appeal for Dinwiddie. Leave him on the wire, especially with Lin expected to play on Saturday.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 15 points with eight rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.
Coach Kenny Atkinson said he wants to play RHJ more at the four, and tonight it was 100 percent PF minutes for the 2015 first-round pick. Hollis-Jefferson was leaned on for defense quite a bit and even did a good job on Nikola Jokic at times. He's starting to get it going over his last five, averaging 9.8 points, 7.6 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.4 treys. He's looking like an asset in standard leagues again.
Jeremy Lin played in his first game of 2017 with seven points, two rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Nets on Friday.
He looked fine and obviously the Nets were going to manage his minutes. He is expected to play in the second half of a back-to-back on Saturday, but expect his minutes to be limited against the Warriors in a homecoming game. He's not a complete must-own player in shallow leagues due to how the Nets will be careful with him.
Sean Kilpatrick scored five points with two turnovers in 18 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.
He was at his best earlier this season just after Jeremy Lin got hurt back in November, but Kilpatrick hasn't really shown much in the last two months. He's not really worth owning with the Nets somewhat healthy.
Isaiah Whitehead scored 12 points with two rebounds, three assists and four turnovers in 19 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.
He played the entire fourth quarter, so that playing time is misleading. Whitehead is the third point guard on the depth chart, which makes him a cut candidate in even super deep leagues.
Garrett Temple (left hamstring) will not play on Saturday vs. the Hornets.
He still doesn't have a timetable to return even though he was scheduled to be re-evaluated after the All-Star break. Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore will benefit the most in his absence (in that order).
Tyler Johnson made 9-of-11 from the field for 23 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers during an easy 108-90 win over the Hawks on Friday.
Even with some garbage time, Johnson still picked up 16 minutes next to Goran Dragic, who scored 17 points with six rebounds and three assists. Johnson is really starting to heat up over his last five, averaging 17.4 points, 4.8 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 treys on 51.7 percent from the field and 90.5 percent from the line. Even when Josh Richardson starts humming again, it shouldn't affect TJ too much. He should be owned in all leagues.
Dion Waiters made 6-of-19 from the field for 14 points with three rebounds, 10 assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
The Heat didn't unleash Josh Richardson (foot) in his first game back, but that will be something to watch. Also, the 10 assists is a season high for Waiters during this blowout win. There's still a chance to sell high on Waiters after a big-time start to 2017.
