Alan Williams scored a career-high 16 points with three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 15 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

Coach Earl Watson loved what he saw out of Williams and called his effort "amazing" in the limited minutes. General manager Ryan McDonough said he wants to take a look at Williams before he becomes a restricted free agent, so there should be more games like this one on the horizon. Still, Tyson Chandler probably won't rest in every game, so Big Sauce is only an add in very deep leagues.

Derrick Jones Jr. played a career-high 14 minutes against the Bulls on Friday with six points, two rebounds and two assists.

Based on some comments earlier today, the Suns are apparently going to take a look at Airplane Mode, who had two fantastic dunks for his only field goals. Jones Jr. is not exactly an offensive threat, so leave him on the wire just about everywhere. Although, we love the highlights and the video of his best dunk tonight is in the link below.

Jared Dudley played 20 minutes against the Bulls on Friday with three points, one rebound and one assist.

He was Marquese Chriss' backup tonight and that may continue until Dragan Bender (ankle) can return. The Suns are hoping Bender can return next month, so Dudley's low upside could only last for a couple weeks. Most owners should be able to do better.

Tyus Jones scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Friday.

He played 13 minutes next to Ricky Rubio and 11 minutes next to Kris Dunn, so it's encouraging that the Wolves may use more two-PG lineups going forward. Jones fell one point shy of his career-high and hit a career-high three triples in the win, so put him on your radar if you're in a deeper league.

Tyson Chandler was a DNP-CD on Friday against the Bulls.

On Arizona Sports radio today, general manager Ryan McDonough hinted that the team talked to Chandler to make sure it was OK that his role would diminish with the youth movement. McDonough called Chandler "phenomenal" about accepting the change, and added they would've considered trading him if Chandler wasn't OK with that. He probably won't rest every game, but there's no doubt this won't be the last time he is out of the lineup going forward. He's a drop candidate due to the incoming DNPs.

Brandon Knight was a DNP-CD on Friday.

With the Suns wanting to get a look at Tyler Ulis, Knight just won't have any opportunity unless Eric Bledsoe or Devin Booker miss a game. Drop him.
Feb 25 - 12:15 AM

Ricky Rubio double-doubled with 13 points and 14 assists on Friday vs. the Mavericks.

He was a popular name at the deadline and there was a good chance that he was going to end up with the Knicks, but the Wolves stood pat and will likely roll with Rubio as their starting PG until a playoff spot is out of reach -- The Wolves are only three losses behind the eighth-seeded Nuggets. Rubio shot 6-of-13 from the field in 35 minutes with five rebounds and three steals, and it's also encouraging that the Wolves are utilizing more two-PG lineups with Zach LaVine (knee) out for the season. Rubio's owners can breathe easy.

DeMar DeRozan took over against the Celtics for a career-high 43 points during a 107-97 win on Friday, adding five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Without Kyle Lowry (wrist), it was DeMar DeRozan over everything. DeRozan has a whopping 41.4 usage rate in his 517 minutes without Lowry this season, so he would be looking at some massive output while Lowry is on the shelf. The new Raptors, Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker, had a seamless transition on their new team and those lower-usage guys are another positive for DeMar. Expect big numbers from the All-Star.
