Clint Capela was back in the starting lineup on Saturday vs. the Wolves, scoring 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting.

Coach Mike D'Antoni isn't afraid to mix up his starting center depending on the matchup, but Capela is always the best bet to produce. He grabbed nine rebounds in 22 minutes, adding two assists, one steal and one block. His playing time has been limited lately and he's only playing 20.2 minutes per game over his last five, but he's still averaging 12.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.8 steals in that span. He's worth owning despite the timeshare at center.

Hollis Thompson did not score in 25 minutes with two rebounds, three assists and one steal during his start against the Mavs on Saturday.

With E'Twaun Moore (personal) out, Thompson was the choice to start over Reggie Williams. Obviously this game won't help him get another start or get a second 10-day deal when the time comes.

Tim Frazier scored two points with one assist in 10 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

According to the broadcast, Frazier was dealing with a wrist injury during this game, which he originally suffered on Thursday. Even without the wrist issue, his outlook obviously doesn't look good right now. Jarrett Jack signing looks like it'll affect Frazier negatively.

Patrick Beverley (groin) scored 15 points with seven assists on Saturday vs. the Wolves.

The Rockets ruled out Beverley about an hour before tip-off, but he changed their mind when he told them he felt good after going through a pre-game workout. Beverley certainly didn't look limited tonight, shooting 4-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line with four rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes. He gets a day off to rest before Monday's matchup with the Pacers.
Feb 25 - 11:53 PM

Jimmy Butler posted his first triple-double of the season during a 117-99 win in Cleveland on Saturday, scoring 18 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

Sure, LeBron James (illness) did not play, but the Bulls will take it to put them on a four-game winning streak -- they are now sixth in the Eastern Conference. Butler looks to be over his troublesome heel issue from earlier this month with 40.0 minutes per game in his last four. His fantasy owners can start feeling good about him being a first-round player in standard leagues during his career year.
Feb 25 - 11:53 PM

James Harden led the Rockets to a 142-130 win over the Wolves on Friday night, scoring 24 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

He hit 7-of-10 from the the line and 5-of-11 from deep, adding 10 assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 35 minutes. The Rockets scored a season-high 142 points in the win and attempted 58 3-pointers, three shy of their franchise record -- coach Mike D'Antoni said this week that the Rockets want to attempt 50+ 3-pointers every night. There's been some talk about the Rockets reducing Harden's workload a bit, but that doesn't really matter in an offense as potent as this. He's the top player in 8-cat leagues this season.
Feb 25 - 11:47 PM

Dwyane Wade scored 20 points with nine rebounds, 10 assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

He just missed the triple-double in hilarious fashion on the last play of the game. A missed shot came softly off the rim and right to Wade, but Cristiano Felicio went for it to knock it away from Wade to leave him at nine boards. Clearly, Wade knew he missed the trip-dub based on his reaction (video in link below). Wade is coming out with a head of steam with a 23-point game on Friday and has his Bulls in the sixth seed. He'll likely be managed at some point, but keep rolling Wade out there. He gets a great matchup against the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Feb 25 - 11:46 PM

Nikola Mirotic scored 14 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

Two good games in a row? Is this real life? Mirotic was in a serious slump heading into the break and was even a DNP-CD in the last game before the All-Star break. Plus, the Bulls said they traded Taj Gibson because they wanted to get a look at Bobby Portis. Well, maybe this is a wakeup call for Mirotic and he can keep it going. He's far from a must-add guy, but coming out hot after the break makes him worth a pickup for anyone needing treys.
