Larry Nance Jr. logged only 15 minutes on Sunday, but he still picked up four points (1-of-1 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks.

All of Nance's assists came in the second quarter, which tied his career-high for a single quarter. Cleveland is still 4-2 since overhauling their roster at the deadline, and Nance has proven to be a great fit coming off the bench -- the low playing time tonight was partly due to foul trouble. He faces an eventual threat from Kevin Love (hand), but for now he's a safe play in 12-team leagues and deeper.

LeBron James finished Sunday's tough home loss with 33 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists, going 14-of-25 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers.

The Spurs threw the kitchen sink at him with five different defenders in the first half alone, but as usual LeBron continued to do his thing. His efforts were wasted, however, as his fellow starters combined for a mere 14 points on 6-of-28 shooting. Although he fell one dime shy of a triple-double tonight, he still made history by passing Rod Strickland for 11th place all-time in assists (7,988). The best news for fantasy owners is that with Cleveland in the thick of a competitive playoff race, LeBron should be protected from dreaded DNP-rest days.
Feb 25 - 7:11 PM

Tristan Thompson grabbed a season-high 13 rebounds on Sunday, adding six points and one steal in 23 minutes.

Seven of Thompson's rebounds came on the offensive end, which makes it more disappointing that he finished just 3-of-7 from the field. The 26-year-old remains a decent source of FG% and rebounds, but he offers almost nothing else for fantasy -- backup Larry Nance Jr. (four points, four boards, four assists, two steals, two blocks) is more appealing in almost any format.
Feb 25 - 7:10 PM

Nikola Mirotic was huge on the defensive end during the Pelicans' overtime win in Milwaukee on Sunday, notching four blocks and one steals through 37 minutes of action.

One of his blocks came in the clutch when Khris Middleton went iso against him with under a minute left in overtime, and he's been surprisingly sending away 1.6 shots per game since donning a Pelicans' jersey, which feels unsustainable. Mirotic again struggled with his shot, going 5-of-15 from the field and 3-of-3 from the charity stripe on his way to 14 points, seven rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist and three turnovers, but the four swats should appease his fantasy owners.
Feb 25 - 7:10 PM

Tony Parker didn't attempt a single field goal or free throw in 14 minutes on Sunday, contributing just one assist and one steal with three turnovers.

Parker came in averaging 14.5 points, 4.5 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in his previous two games, but deferred to his teammates tonight. Fellow reserve Bryn Forbes scored 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting, while Danny Green added 22 points on 6-of-11 shooting, and Parker's offense wasn't required in an eventual 110-94 road win. There are safer fantasy options on almost any waiver wire.
Feb 25 - 7:09 PM

Dejounte Murray filled the boxscore on Sunday with 13 points, nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and three blocks during a 110-94 win vs. Cleveland.

Murray scored 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter, helping San Antonio close out their 'Rodeo road trip' with a much-needed victory. He's the only point guard in the league with 4+ steals and 3+ blocks in a game this season, which highlights his unique skills and fantasy potential. Poor percentages have dragged him down in many formats this season, but he's cruising over the past five games and is worth owning if you need a PG.
Feb 25 - 7:08 PM

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.
Feb 25 - 7:06 PM

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.
