Taurean Prince scored a career-high 11 points with four rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

The Hawks have a surplus of wings right now with DeAndre Bembry playing well and Thabo Sefolosha returning to action. This will be too much of a hot-hand approach to count on any of these guys in most leagues. Prince has been very inconsistent on the offensive end and it'll take a while before he's a contributor outside of being a glue guy. It's been a solid rookie season, though.

Joe Harris will start for Caris LeVert (illness) on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

LeVert is day-to-day, so there's no need to grab Harris outside of very deep formats. In 10 starts this season, Harris has posted averages of 6.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 triples.
Feb 25 - 9:17 PM

Frank Kaminsky scored a game-high 23 points during a 99-85 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding a career-high 13 rebounds with three assists, two steals and a career-high five 3-pointers.

He's been all the Hornets could've hoped for as a center. Ever since the Hornets got stomped in Oakland on Feb. 1, coach Steve Clifford has talked up how well Kaminsky has performed closer to the basket on defense. On offense, he's really hitting his stride lately, averaging 19.8 points, 7.6 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 steals and 3.0 treys in his last five. While he won't be this good, he has to be owned right now.

Patrick McCaw is starting in place of Kevin Durant (hand) on Saturday vs. the Nets.

It sounds like the Warriors are simply being cautious with Durant against the weakest team in the NBA, so McCaw is just a streaming option in deeper leagues tonight. In three previous starts this season, the rookie averaged 10.0 points, 2.7 assists, 1.7 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.3 3-pointers.
Feb 25 - 8:50 PM

Kemba Walker scored 12 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

His February is not going well at all. This month, he's averaging just 18.3 points, 4.0 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.1 treys on 40.1 percent from the field. Walker has really struggled in the paint, making just 21-of-52 (40.4 percent), which is almost 20 percent below league average. The All-Star should snap out of it, so he's a bit of a buy-low player.
Feb 25 - 8:45 PM

Marvin Williams scored 16 points with six rebounds, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He was in some kind of slump heading into the break, but he's out of it to start the second half. Williams played 40 minutes with 13 points on Thursday during a loss to the Pistons. Plus, his minutes are also up because the Hornets are playing Frank Kaminsky at the five now. He should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 25 - 8:40 PM

Nicolas Batum made 4-of-17 from the field for 15 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He's in another shooting slump, which is nothing new for how he plays. He's made just 30.2 percent from the field in his last three games for his 14.2 points per game. Only 11.6 percent of his shots have been at the rim and he's made just 7-of-33 (21.2 percent) outside of the paint in that span. His owners shouldn't be surprised and just have to hope he snaps out of it the next time out against the Clippers on Sunday.
Feb 25 - 8:35 PM

Christian Wood scored a season-high five points with four rebounds in 10 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He was the first big man off the bench, so this is more non-garbage minutes than he's seen all of this season combined -- he only scored four points all season combined, too. Wood won't have fantasy value and may have to fend off Johnny O'Bryant once he's ready to play.
